Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
Grace and peace be upon you my beloved brothers and sisters,
Why is it that mankind thinks they can fool God? The God who created the heavens and the earth however; there are some who think they know better than God does. The God that created intelligence and human beings yet there are some that think they know what's best for their own lives rather than God who created them. The scriptures declares that God is the potter and we are the clay. Does the clay tell the potter how to shape it? If the potter has power over the clay, why is it that we try to tell God how to form our lives? We try to tell God what we are called to do, what gifts that we have and how we are supposed to used them in His ministry. The above scripture declares,"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked." This scripture simply states that God is not outfoxed or fooled by your thinking but, you are only fooling yourselves. In the main context of this text it is referring to giving. Most people in the church think that the are anointed to received but do not realize that giving and receiving or sowing and reaping are like husbands and wives they are one. Just like life and death are one, Jehovah and Jesus are one, God, Jesus and you are one. There is a direct one to one relationship in regards to sowing and reaping. This is a Kingdom principle which simple states," whatever a man sows, that will he also reap". The scripture declares," For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life". Of course, this text delves deeper than giving and receiving of money and things but also talks about reaping eternal life. Today, I will focus on the context in which I previously stated which is giving. To receive of the Lord, you must be willing to give unto the Lord. If you do not believe in sowing and reaping then you are deceiving yourself. Why is there so much lack in the church, because church folks do not believe in sowing (giving). You receive according to your sowing. The scripture teaches,"6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully (2 Corinthians 9:6). Why in this season sowing and reaping is so important? During September/October (Yom Kippur) according to the Jewish calender it is harvest time or reaping time and the Jewish New Year therefore;If you have not sown abundantly you can not expect to reap abundantly. Matter of fact, whatever you have sown whether of the Spirit or of the Flesh you can expect to reap that harvest. It is harvest time and the rain is pouring! This is a sign of abundance! Let us not get weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. This is your due season!

A very good article the points of which people should pay attention to. Those who believe in God and are willing to obey will have no problem in following this important rule. Only those who think they can fool God or do not believe that He exists will ignore everything He says. A good idea will be to space your articles into paragraphs.
