Mr. President, You Reap What You Sow

“Those who plot the destruction of others often perish in the attempt."
As the Obama administration is being uncovered for scandal after scandal, his plans are beginning to backfire. For example, the ever-increasing scandals at the Internal Revenue Service are now jeopardizing critical funding for the agency as it attempts to play a major role in the implementation of Obamacare. Obama was planning a major budget increase for the IRS, but now the feat is proving difficult as Congress sees that the IRS has proven to be untrustworthy. This proves the famous, unchangeable law of sowing and reaping – the Obama administration’s actions are blowing up in their face. Let me explain...
There is a true story told of two men who thought it would be okay to break the law and go duck hunting two weeks before the season opened. They took with them a retriever, a brand new truck, decoys, plenty of ammunition, and a couple sticks of dynamite. When they first arrived to the lake they noticed a big problem…the lake they chose was frozen over.
One of them had a great idea. He would go to his truck, get a stick of dynamite, and then blow a big hole in the middle of the lake, throw down the decoys and then have a hay day shooting all the little duckies. So he did just that. He went to his truck, pulled out the stick of dynamite, lit the fuse and then threw it right smack in the center of the lake.
However, he forgot one thing… his retriever was there. As faithful as he was, he ran after the stick of dynamite, put it in his mouth, and then ran toward his owner. The owner, in fear of being blown up, grabbed his rifle and began shooting at the retriever in hopes he would not come back to him. The retriever was scared away and ran right under the brand new truck.
Guess what blew up? You got it, the retriever and the brand new truck. His breaking of the law was the very thing that nipped him right in the butt. The things that blew up were the very evidence of his guilt.
The two men were charged for breaking the law.
And so it is with us every day. If you were to take a kernel of wheat and sow it into the soil, you would reap wheat. If you sow wheat, you will not reap barley. And in the same way, if you sow good seed you will reap good fruit; and bad seed, bad fruit. Yet there are some who think they can get one over on a just and holy God who sees all (Psalm 97) - they sow bad seeds into their lives and think they will reap a good harvest.
If you sow into lawlessness, then you will reap lawlessness. And that goes right in line with godlessness. You sow into godlessness and you reap hell, literally!
It is a fixed Law that you reap the same kind of seed that you sow. It is a Law unto itself. We might as well try to blot the sun out of the Heavens as to blot this truth out of the Word of God!
In fact, your present-day circumstance is the fruit of your present-day field that you have sown. Good or bad.
You reap what you sow.
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." - Galatians 6:7-8
Have you ever wondered what happened to those who crucified Jesus Christ?
The video below gives actual accounts from history that proves God is not mocked, whether it is tyrants and dictators (Mussolini, etc.), men in the Bible (Herod, Pilate, etc.), or the Senate of Rome who would not submit to Jesus Christ, the meek King of glory.
