Seasons of seedtime, Dark (Elders Panel)

Psalm 126:5-6 – Those who sow seed in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing songs of joy as they return with the harvest. 

Cyrus, a Persian emperor, ruled Babylonia from 538-530 B.C. His military victories put him in control of the largest empire of the world at that time.  His policy toward the conquered peoples was agnostic. His conquering of Babylonia and authorization of the return of the captive Israelites to rebuild the Jerusalem temple.  “I have aroused Cyrus in righteousness, and I will make all his paths straight: he shall build my city and set my exiles free” (Isaiah 45:13).  If the sowing season finds rain that washes seed away rather than nourishing, then the people sow in tears. If the harvest time produces a bountiful crop then there will be a time of rejoicing: “May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy”  Anticipation of Monsoon Rain.  Anxiety, Concern,

Genesis 8:22While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease.

Matthew 16:1-3 – Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came and testing Him asked that He show them a sign from heaven. He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.

  • Seasons are PREDICTABLE, and have a Divine Purpose
  • Seasons: Some have an appointed end date.
  • Some Seasons are perpetual until that which God appoints has been accomplished. 
  • Some seasons go on longer than they should because you keep responding inappropriately, or you keep breathing life into them.
  • Seasons are primary tools used to accomplish God’s will in our lives.  They are part of the sanctification process.

  • Sacrifice is an accelerant.
  • Others are eating their seeds.
  • Some Sow without joyful expectation.
