Galatians 6:8 TPT “The harvest you reap reveals the seed that you planted. If you plant the corrupt seeds of self-life into this natural realm, you can expect a harvest of corruption. If you plant the good seeds of Spirit-life you will reap beautiful fruits that grow from the everlasting life of the Spirit.”
In God’s Kingdom, there is what I see as a law operating. I call it “Poetic justice.” In the physical realm, there is a law called gravity, and if we jump from a too high of a place in which we are not able to, we can break our bones. There are many laws operating around us.
The law of poetic justice – If you are late to God and His Services, then expect your prayers to be late in coming. If you are greedy, then expect to be poor. Be a lawbreaker, then the law will come after you. If you lack knowledge, then expect to live in dependency on the world. Live in sin and expect life to suck. What goes around comes around. This is not karma. This is Truth.
Misbehave and expect the rod of discipline from God’s authorities whether government, police, soldiers, teachers, parents, or pastors. Live in peace, and expect peace.
In the Bible, God said to show mercy and be shown mercy. Forgive others, and God will forgive you. If you do not forgive, the Bible says God cannot forgive you. If we resent people, we have not forgiven them. The Bible says if we honor God’s authority, we will receive their reward but if we dishonor them, we will receive the trash of life. If we receive and honor a righteous man, we receive his/her reward.
Galatians 6:8 clearly states what we go through in life is what we planted and we cannot blame anyone else. But we can change if we stop doing the same things over and over change direction and start doing what is True.
The Bible says:
Pride before a fall on your face.
Honor (blessings, peace, love, prosperity, health, order, abundance life, reigning in life) before humility.
It is a very simple concept but very hard to implement for the prideful who cannot surrender, submit, or support the authorities God has appointed over them.
This is a Kingdom principle
