God is not mocked. What a man sows, that he will also reap escalation, six, seven, and this is destined for victory coming your way next Pastor Paul Sheppard shares his message respecting the law of the harvest, but before he get started. He joins me know from a studio in California pastor know your heart is encouraged by so many of our friends were listening and letting us know that destined for victory is having an impact in their lives tell us, remind me why are you so committed using media as a part of ministry will way and I'll tell you I'm sold on the fact that if we're going to fulfill the great commission and of course that's our job as the body of Christ to go into the world to make disciples to baptize people and teach them to observe all things that Christ commanded to do that I am more convinced than ever. It demands that we take of strong fresh look at how to use technology in every other resource to that isn't in other words, we gotta realize we were boomers. I'm a baby boomer born between 46 and 64 that our generation me to and I realize that we were the last generation in American history that was typically raised in church or in some religious training, and we've got three generations under us, and now there's an emerging fourth-generation there still being developed. There known as generation alpha my first grandchild is an alpha and so I realize that with these three. For generations we've gotta preach the gospel to. They are not inclined to come to church and hear the gospel if you will, but the vast majority of them are probably going to have to be reached where they are before we can get them into the life of the church so technology is very important to the end that we can reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ. That's what it's all about pastor reaching as many people as we can with the gospel in a media can often go or missionaries cannot into the homes of elderly shut-ins or those with no way of getting to church goes beyond prison walls and can even travel into remote areas of the world that are often hostile to the Christian faith.

Sometimes God will bless you for no reason at all, but more often than not, there's a condition attached today on destined for victory.

Esther Paul takes us to the biblical principle of sowing and reaping as you follow along. Remember this is not something may happen. This is not a probability. It's a certainty, one that is true for all people all the time, believers and unbelievers is Pastor Paul. Today's destined for victory message respecting the law of the heart rate choose you reap what you so many. If I sold one seed of one type of vegetable I am not going to reap a different type of its I know about one of the reap. I want so I'm not going to.

So please, and expect corn, you reap what you sow. That's in God's law.

Same is true in our lives. Here's Jesus put it in Luke 16, beginning at verse 10 whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much so if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches and if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property whom will give you property of your own those kind remarks are based on the part of the principle that says you reap what you sow and so here's what Jesus is saying he's saying. I can predict what's coming in your future by your current patterns cause your current actions. Your current attitude, your current decisions are sowing a harvest that you will reap. So he says if you can't be trusted and you don't have much. If you have got your hands on more we can you know you will be trustworthy with.

That's the principle.

Jesus said you can't argue with him. He said today is indicative of tomorrow. A lot of people want to believe that they can do wrong and reap right a lot of people want to believe that they can so just barely enough and then reap the harvest of somebody who did more than enough you can go to school and cram before every exam and graduate at the top of the class not going to happen because you didn't sound if you want to be in a student you after so coordinate, you have to give more time when everybody else is going to party you say no. I got a study. It's a decision you make young people when you're in college I chose the study because if you want to be a doctor. Nobody wants a doctor who crammed want to cram in Dr. I'm sitting up on the table my life, seemingly in your hands and you open the corner looking at a book. I know we talked about this at some point in Ms. up and down off the table, which is back on and I'm walking out. Take a little pitiful paper down which is you are not touching me. Why because you insult so enough I'm looking for somebody who took the time and did the work and has outstanding credentials you will reap what you so don't blame your harvest on anybody but yourself and your heart is only by but yourself. When we talk about your schooling. When we talk about your spirituality with your work. Your job, anything like that you will make your self, your way prosperous if you sold the proper harvest, you reap what you sow. So be faithful giving that principle about giving. I was taught to be a little boy way back to being a small boy when I got a one dollar allowance. I was told my mother would give it to us and she say to go to the store and make change or she had the change to give you 3/4 to nines and a nickel and she say now a dime of this belongs to God when you go to church you give it.

That's God's and I was drummed into me as a boy, so that when I went to church. This is God's money. The $0.90 is mine, but the dime belongs to God and so as I grew up I got my first job paper route, so you never heard of a paper route back in the day we had paper route you were responsible for getting the daily paper to a certain number of homes in your neighborhood and I think back and say what about the last days you could walk around, especially on collection day because you didn't have to go to these houses and collect the money in America it actually happened. Young people walk around on collection day and go to these people's houses and had a right by the door all you pay you for the paper and we actually walk around with that money in the pockets. We got all that I have been with the size your paper was if I had 85 holes and not come back with 85 payments. You turn it in and they give you your portion and yeah we got jumped a couple of times. Don't somebody do this don't happen friend of mine began on the corner saw him, knew he was the paperboy and I was collection day and they said what you got to try to know I haven't had a chance to go get you and they said no. We think you got it and he said they picked me up and they shook me. He said all the collections came out on the ground but we were learning. That's our job. We had my second job was working at when those neighborhood stores little small stores you can just get your sodas and milk and stuff like that. No big rush this. And I was the stock boy second job stumbling and put the sodas and when the truck would come and put the brain. All that I remember my first salary on the job was $0.85 an hour $0.85 an hour he saw were good. I got raised one dollar left out making a dollar 50 afterschool jobs into about four hours on Saturday but we get his work money that you have a new and spend get you charts about time you try to be killed.

Look at your we will learn the lessons I got that I've already learned to be a tither so I got a check for $47 and $4.70 will only got my day was a just rounded up domicile God back the inexact five dollars and five dollars to get to church. Bam please God. I work I'm going to stop and you learn you learn that you can't be God giving and so you need to do that if you can't be trusted with your current salary is a tither said well you know I can do right now.

The one these days I will be so broke off no Jesus. It is Michael happen because you can be trusted now and I have even given you a lot now you can be trustable. What you have so you reap what you sow, if you show generosity, you reap the harvest that generous people reap. And he said you gotta look at what you're doing now now is indicative of later now is going to be the fruit. The grown-up fruit. That's what you see later is what you sow it now and so look at every area of your life. You saw me missing will have a good relationship with your spouse you not going to because you're not selling into it being nice on purpose, intentional niceness on purpose well on purpose treat them right on purpose when they say or do something that makes you want to react a certain way, but you have response ability, responsibility is nothing more than response ability I have the ability to not come back at you just because you said, a bit somehow don't like to come for you, but it would be pretty. So I'm going to choose the love you enough to not go there. That's what you know now you sold harvest of niceness and you keep on selling until you see that we have a safe and nice for about a month now know, keep showing So You Will Reap What You Sow You Know People Who Never Get Right.

I Sure Do. But What This Principle Says Is Even If They Never Get like to Stay Wrong. God's All Your Sewing and God Bless You Anyhow. I Sit Here Bless You Anyhow Give You a Peace That Passes Understanding. Give Your Grace to Be Able to Ignore Their Ignorant Behavior You'll Be Only Blessing You Because You Honored the Loan Go Away Were Only about Halfway through Today's Testing for Victory Message with Pastor Paul Sheppard, Senior Pastor of Destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California.

Next, the Rest of Today's Message Respecting the Law of the Harvest. Once Again, Here's Pastor Paul. There's No Sudden Success You so You Have To Wait You so and Then You Wait You so and Then You Wait. Nobody Goes out so Today and Tomorrow Morning Looking at the Ground You so Then There Is a. Where What's Going on Is Not Going on in a Place of Visibility, Something Happening but You Can See, You Reap after You so That's Why We Have To Learn the Old-Fashioned Lesson of the Best Things Are Still Worth Waiting on. They Always Are, and That's Why I Told You before Old-Style Life Just Taught Us That Almost Accidentally Close We Didn't Expect the Law of Technology Wasn't in Full Effect.

Back in Those Days and so We Knew You Just Have To Wait on Some Things Just Have To Wait on Something You Just Had to Put More Effort into Some Things You Just Had to Give It Time. Old-Fashioned Watching Wasn't Today's Lesson You Watching You Put in the Machine and Walk Away.

Old-Fashioned Loss Was. It Was Part of Solid Work. It Was Evident Drying Your Put in a Drawer Pushbutton Walk Away Old-Fashioned Drivers You Take It out, You Shake It). You Go outside You Already Have the Doing Some They Had a Cola Line That Went across the Street and You Could Pull Your Side.

You Never Could Pull Some Strings in the Cold to Hang It All out There like Banners and You Had to Let the Wind Blow Back in the Day. We Took Pictures Really Start Saving Anytime Soon.

Take a Picture Rolled into the Next One. Take the Picture Rolled and You Had to Take the Whole Role Where You Got the Shot You Want and That You Had to Finish out the Roles You Just Shooting the Opening of Bam Oh You Took It to a Place to Store, Drugstore Part Is a Photo Area or Then Eventually Some Photo Dedicated Places Popped up and You Take It over There and You Would Put in on an Open You Would Fill out Your Name and Address and Phone Number.

Seal the Envelope, Drop It off and You Waited and They Will Call You and Tell You within You Go Pay for Get It Then You See Then You Get the Reap and Then When Polaroid Came Home We Thought We Were in the Sun Came out with All We Will Slide out the Front.

But When You Talk It You Didn't See Much Solid Gray Cloud That's All Right You Knew the Harvest Was Coming. You Speeded up by Shaking. Hopefully All Will Just Have To Wait on Just Wait on Coming Going to Carry, Wait for It Is Common Just Wait and I Noticed That This Generation Waits When the Auto Be Walking in This Selling I Noticed That They Don't Wait and Expect Your Result Right Now I Don't Have a Broke off Card to Comment That I'm Sowing toward Right Now Sowing toward a Card and I Won't Used To Have It and Then I Went to a Season When I First Had My Midlife Thing with the Season Following the Smaller Sportier Car. So I Went Got Dissipated. So Now Going Back to the Larger Sedan That I'm Sowing toward One Day You Will See Me Drive up until Now, When You See Me Don't Hate You Right Now Going to Bother Peyton and Vicki All That He Fell Such a Much As You Say Whatever You Will Almost Be Smiling Because I Sold toward This Work toward This Labor. Toward This.

I Waited on a Sacrifice I Took Care Of the Folks Need.

I Gave Generously to the Kingdom Help with Getting the Building. I Did Everything God Wanted Me to Do so When I'm Sowing Don't You Even If You Forward Me You.

My Wife Already Rolling Nice. I'm Waiting on Mine. See below. The Nice Old-Fashioned Marriage Will Be a Raggedy, Good Call to Wipe the Good Car Back in the Day.

I Know You Will Practice That Matthew Got a Job Was You Who Have a Two Income Family Will My Wife Has Not Worked outside the Home since Our Firstborn Was Born by Design. We Were Days We Talked about Being One Income Family so That We Can Have the Children. The Lord Blessed to Have, and Should Be in Their Lives, and We Were Sowing into Our Kids by Planning That Back Then You Can Raise Good Kids with Two Income Families on This and You Can't but Our Decision Back in 1982 and 83 Was Preparing for Kids to Do It That Way and Is Paid Great Dividends Because She Was There in Their Lives All through Those Formative Early Years She Was There That Lives to Come in the Kindergarten First Grade and She's There When They Came Home and She's There with and It Was a Job I'd Never Let Him.

I Say My Wife Done Work Never in My 32 Years.

At This Point Though to Say to Me.

Also You like Me.

I'm Glad to Have a Flashback like the One She Has Worked All about Marriage Was a Priority for Us. We Wanted to Raise Kids Who Have Been Training Old-Fashioned since We Want to Give Them the Last Thing That I Had Growing up, I Will Stay at Home Mom Who Could Pull into Her Family Again. You Will Have To Work, I Get It. I See the Economy. I Pray for You Job Your Job and Kids, but We Were Blessed to Do It. We First Got Married I Was Associate Pastor. My Dad Practice. Reverse Discrimination Because I Was His Son and His Associate Pastor Want to Make Sure the Church and Get Preferential Treatment. So He Treated Me Worse Than You Treated Any Other Associate Pastor Was Working 12 Hour Days Right and He Would Tell You I Got What I Was so so and Faithfully Someone in the Somebody Else's Property. One Day When I Had a Church of My Own. I Can Expect God to Bless Sowing into Somebody Else's Vision and My Kids Are Blessed Because They Had Their Mother and so We Been One Income Family Whenever You Seen One. Nice: One. Raggedy Corner Family There Been Several Seasons When That's Been the Case. She Was Always the One Really Nice. You See Her and Hello Benzo You Leave Her Alone Because She Has Sold and See If Husband and She Has Helped Raise up This Jerk and She's so so When You See Me All We Have To Learn to Do so. So Just Keep so Just Keep Sowing and Finally Reap More Than You so That's a Good Thing about a God to Give You a Bumper Crop You so You Did Good Sowing Which Is My Goal This Is Where Some Y'all Are You Will Be Surprised by How Much God Will Give You a Return on Your Investment of Faithfulness. A Return on Your Investment of Prayer Will Return on Your Investment. A Standard That Marriage When You Walked Away People Give You a Return on Your Decision to Do It God's Way, Rather Than Your Way You'll Experience a Bumper Crop. Some 3760 Some 100. God Will Bless You and Tremendously.
