QUESTION & ANSWER LIVE(PART 1)-MAY- 5-2-2020


Q & A WITH AMANDA GRACE-PART 1

Are there seven heavens? If so, what exactly does it mean?
Do all real prophetic messages come from the Third heaven only?

Genesis 1:1: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Revelation 21:1-4: Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away (vanished), and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, arrayed like a bride adorned for her husband; and then I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “See! The tabernacle of God is among men, and He will live among them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them [as their God,]  and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be death; there will no longer be sorrow and anguish, or crying, or pain; for the former order of things has passed away.”

2 Corinthians 12:2-4: know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. And I know that this man was caught up into paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows— and he heard things that cannot be told, which man may not utter.

Genesis 1:6-8: And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

Isaiah 14: 13: “But you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit on the mount of assembly. In the remote parts of the north.
The First Heaven: is the earths atmosphere, the sky where the birds fly, where we see the clouds reside.
The Second Heaven: is where the sun, moon, and planets reside, what we know as outer space. Many times it is the 2nd heaven area where you see the occult gather with the kingdom of darkness.
The Third Heaven: Is the dwelling place of God, what we know as Heaven, and where His Throne is as well, and where he rules and reigns from.

What has the Lord shown you about the Vatican and the pope?

Actually during the night on May 1, 2020 when I was up praying I had heard to watch the pope that something was coming or going to come up with this pope. I also received the following on November 16, 2018:

The Lord gave me a dream a year prior and took me underground under the Vatican where there were tunnels, rooms, etc..Arches steps things like that.
There were witches, one disappearing and reappearing, there were warlocks, there were court jesters, there were animal like demonic figures and they were doing this all around me however none could harm me because I was under the protection of Almighty God.
So when I had awoken I realized there were more satanic things going on underground within the Vatican than maybe was realized at that point.
Underneath the Vatican rumblings of hell, witchcraft, sorcery, why do you think child abuse with priests has increased says the Lord, that is of the occult in an attempt to split the soul to program those children to be pawns for the spiritually dead.
Specific ceremonies of the illuminati and the occult beneath the Vatican.
Satan himself has walked the underground, even the interior of the Vatican says the Lord.
The Vatican priests are playing with fire, glazing over Gods word for good reason. What people do not know, they are programmed easier in the direction the heads of the Vatican want them to go.
This coming year 2019 shocking ceremonies and secrets deep within the walls of the Vatican  will be exposed, the news will cover it. The heads will scramble to give an answer but people will see right through it.
The Vatican is a spiritual mess with unclean spirits from all religions walking inside its walls.
Consulting of spirits are happening in underground chambers, asking these spirits these demon princes for influence over whole countries as long as they do the bidding and plant the seed of one world religion.
An assassination attempt against this pope by those who have seen his agenda watch for this says the Lord and watch for strange signs around the Vatican NEWSWORTHY  that will confirm these words and events in Jesus name.
Now there is a huge report due out from the Vatican called the Mccarrick report that is due to this virus issue has conveniently appeared to be put on hold.

Watch for things to go sideways some with this.

Coach Carter Writes:

I have a question about this latest information I have received about Bill Gates.
I ran into a piece of information regarding him, and the coronavirus. I did a little digging by using gematria, and I found the word CORONA to equal 66.

If you add the fact that this word has six letters, put all three 6's together, and you get 666. Last night, I posted the name BILL GATES III using the ASCII code, and his name calculated to the number 666. I saw this, and I immediately remembered Revelation 13 with the last part mentioning about a man's number calculating to 666.

I have always had my suspicions about Bill Gates, and lately this bit of information about him pushing the vaccines, was making me more suspicious of him. Now I am convinced that he is as evil as I think he is.

So lets look at Revelation 13:16-18:
Also he compels all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead [signifying allegiance to the beast], and that no one will be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let the person who has enough insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the [imperfect] number of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.              
(Sciencealert.com)

666 doesn't really have any remarkable, or unusual mathematical properties, However, if you look back into its history, it reveals something pretty incredible about the way the Bible was originally written.  What the writer, in this case john, refers to in a vision isn’t as straightforward as we would first think.

666 is being used as a code, and not a particularly subtle one, if you were alive and literate at the time of the New Testament. We must keep in mind the time that the book of revelation was written as well as the political climate to further understand this.

The New testament was written in Greek which shares a uniqueness to Hebrew in that letters have a numerical value, in Hebrew it is called gamatria.

For small numbers, the first letters of the Greek alphabet, alpha, beta, gamma, represent 1, 2, and 3.
Then like in Roman numerals, when you want to form big numbers like 100, 1,000, so bigger numbers are represented by their own unique combination of letters.
the English word "reckon" comes from the Greek word for "calculate" or "solve". "So it's similar to saying, 'I'm gonna give you a riddle, you need to calculate the number of the Beast,'" or solve this number sequence, says this gentleman Pete who discusses this.
Well, given the hatred of the Roman Empire at the time, and particularly its leader, Nero Caesar, who was considered to be especially evil.
When you actually look at the original text, you'll see that in this passage, the letters of 666 are actually written in Hebrew, which places a higher significance on numbers meaning words and words meaning numbers than ancient Greek. The author, john was very clearly trying to tell those something who would read this text.

If you translate the Hebrew spelling of 666, you actually spell out Neron Kesar - the Hebrew spelling of Nero Caesar.

No one in their right mind writes a book under heavy imperial persecutions saying, 'The root of all evil is Nero Caesar. During that time there was no such thing as the constitution and free speech, you did not just spell that out in writing.

Who was Nero Caesar:

He was adopted. His rule started in 54 AD he was a ruthless ruler, murderer who had no fear of God or touching his people.

On the night of July 18, A.D. 64, a fire started in the Circus Maximus that would burn out of control, leaving little of the city untouched. At the time it occurred, Nero was at Antium but immediately returned to Rome to oversee relief efforts.
While ancient writers tend to blame Nero for starting the fire, this is far from certain. Much of Rome was made with combustible material and the city was overcrowded.
After the flames died down Nero apparently tried to cast blame on the Christians, at the time a fairly small sect. “Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace,” wrote Tacitus (translation from Jürgen Malitz’s "Nero). Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths. 
Perhaps the most infamous of Rome's emperors, Nero Claudius Caesar (37-68 A.D.) ruled Rome from 54 A.D. until his death by suicide 14 years later.
Nero was also younger when he came to power he was not this older man.
If I read this and put hitler’s name in it would sound very similar wouldn’t it?
So John is saying this is the psychological profile of the true antichrist look for Nero Caesar, someone just like him, however it appears his name must also have something to do with the number 666.
Interestingly enough 666 turns up in the game of roulette, all roulette tables use the numbers 1 to 36, the monte carlo roulette table only has 0 where the American has a 00 as well. However the monte carlo is the one to focus on. 
The Roulette’s Connection To The Devil (Ancient pages.com)
In time, the roulette became famous as the Devil’s game. It was said that playing roulette was so addictive that the player must have become possessed by the Devil.
There was a legend according to which François Blanc supposedly bargained with the Devil to obtain the secrets of roulette. The legend is based on the fact that the sum of all the numbers on the roulette wheel (from 0 to 36) is 666, which is the "Number of the Beast".
Due to its appearance in the Holy Bible, the number 666 has for centuries been associated with the anti-Christ.
In Revelation 13, John describes a vision of two great beasts. One is a seven-headed monster that rises up from the sea and the other is a dragon-like demon that cracks through the earth. The passage ends with Biblical warning: “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six.”
So, a common nickname for the roulette is the “The Devil's Game” or “The Devil’s Wheel”.
The sum of consecutive numbers from rows 1 to 36 is known as a triangle number, so you have 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21 and so on .the 36th row the triangular number or one of them is 666.

Can Amanda please speak to where she believes we are (and are not) in the End Time timeline?

Does Amanda believe this COVID-19 will be stopped in its tracks, or will we have to deal with this again in the fall?

Tiffany
I was wondering if God has told you if the COVID-19 virus will be gone forever... Or will it return every year like the flu? Is this a one-time plague? 

Okay, as far as the end times:
Are we in the end times, yes, are we in the last days. I am not so sure. Meaning the time God has ordained will not come one minute sooner no matter how much people talk about it, try to pray it into existence, the enemy would like nothing more than to speed things up because that means less souls for the Lord and he is so delusional he actually thinks he has a shot of overthrowing the Lord once the antichrist comes to power. Now we have had many dress rehearsals, Pharaoh, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Japan in WW2, however the antichrist for the end of the age has not come to power yet. Now he may be alive he could be an infant, a teenager, or even an adult. However like the sons of Issachar we are supposed to be able to discern the times and seasons. We have been seeing something spoken in the book of revelation for quite some time.

My personal belief is we have some time left, now keep in mind if hypothetically it is 10 to 20 years left on the earth that is still a blip to God. The Lord truly wants to win as many souls as he can before the great tribulation and I believe truly the Holy Spirit on the earth is what is holding back the antichrist because when the Holy Spirit showed up on Pentecost in the upper room it was game changer and a huge blow to the enemy. We cannot be separated from the Holy Spirit, meaning the Lord cannot take it from us leaving us stranded on earth without him, that is not even biblical. No where does it biblically say the Holy Spirit would be sent for a time and then separated from the believer.

As far as COVID-19 as it was prophesied we began to see the tide turn during Passover, the problem is many of these liberal governors have been given an enormous amt of power of the state that is cutting way into constitutional rights. So in a way COVID-19 has now been completely weaponized and if we think they are letting go without a fight leading up to the elections we are not on earth right now.

Gating requirements will be skewed to keep power look for that to emerge, a fiddling deceptively with numbers to lengthen the time between gating requirements.
And if you keep people home long enough they become more desperate in what they are willing to agree to to get out remember that too.

1)  Can you please detail your morning routine (and evening if you have one) of the prayers you say everyday & in what order you say them (Meaning...what steps do you pray & then read the Bible & for how long do you spend on each…2 x a day, etc...)?
Before I pray I always use the 4 prayer points I say at the beginning of every broadcast
on our blog amandagrace4him.blogspot.com on March 15 national day of prayer, I lay
out those prayer points, those are highly effective.
2)  Do you still do the “Command the Morning” prayers in your routine & if so, do you say them every day (I notice that when I say these prayers, it feels like I’m constantly being spiritually attacked (getting sick often or lots of physical issues come up for me) & so I just quit saying these prayers for that reason…any thoughts or suggestions on that?
And as far as command the morning. There was a reason I only approved 30 prayer points from that book, because quite a bit of it opens you up to warfare especially if you are not dealing with some serious things:
Example: witch doctors in Africa have dreadful strongholds over entire towns where they hold them ransom for money and power. We do not deal with that here. We deal with the occult but in a different context. The Lord equips for the measure of the battle, so you may see the Lord give very potent and strong tactics to a minister in Africa who is dealing with a toxicly wicked problem that I have named above, they even have spells to send killer bees to peoples homes to kill them, than someone who is battling depression and anxiety.
 Jesus even deciphers that there are different methods depending on the demon.
Matthew 17:14-21: When they approached the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, kneeling before Him and saying,  “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic (moonstruck) and suffers terribly; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. And I brought him to Your disciples, and they were not able to heal him.” And Jesus answered, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me.” Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was healed at once.Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why could we not drive it out?” He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. (But this kind of demon does not go out except by prayer and fasting).
Jesus says if you have Faith, He does not say if you have a book of prayer points that combat spells. Although the Lord does teach us methods in warfare, it must be in conjunction with Faith, mustard seed type faith
Wedlock-God’s Child Writes:
I want to know how to be more sensitive to the presence of God. What do I do when I am being harassed by predatory spirits where I live? How do we know when someone or something is not from the Lord?
First of all believers should be constantly asking the Lord and binding to their souls a few key abilities or gifts:
1.  You need to make time for the Lord and spend time me with Him to get more and more familiar with His presence, cleaning out your soul and giving it a bath helps a lot as well. How do you do this?
a.   Father God in the name of Jesus Christ I choose as an act of My will to loose from my soul, ALL anger, resentment, frustration, worry, fear, anxiety, depression, unforgiveness, bitterness, jealousy, pride rebellion, sickness, disease poverty, lack, and whatever else you need to loose, and banish it in Jesus name.
b.   Father God in the name of Jesus Christ I choose as an act of My Will to BIND to my Soul, the love, mercy, compassion, and peace that surpasses ALL understanding of Almighty God, the goodness of God, the supernatural favor from God that all I put My hand to prospers, the healing, wholeness, and restoration from Almighty God, Divine order, revelation, wisdom, knowledge from Almighty God, precision and accuracy in discernment and discerning of Spirits from Almighty God, and whatever else you need from the Lord.
2.Wisdom, ability to discern spirits/discernment, heightened sensitivity to the instructions of the Lord and Holy Spirit in this day and age we need them now more than ever.

3. Repent and command in Jesus name that all legal doors  be closed, locked, and blocked and sealed by the blood of Jesus. 
If you find yourself being harassed deploy the four prayer points in faith that loos
and release the Holy waring angels and hosts of heaven of all rankings and divisions.
These prayer points can be found amandagrace4him.blogspot.com march 15
national day of prayer. Warring angels eat battling principalities for breakfast,
predatory spirits have a lot to do with strongholds over entire areas and that is the
department of the warring angels.
Ray and Lisa both asked: How do you test the Spirit as you recommend on the broadcast?
First of all you need discernment which I just covered in the last couple of answers.
One way if I hear something and I need to see if its an impersonating spirit;

Spirit that just said this to me do you believe that Almighty God the Spirit of the One true Living God sent His son Jesus to the earth in the form of a man to die on the cross as a purchase by the shedding of His blood for the sins of humanity and rose again in three days?  A demonic spirit will not answer yes to that you will hear some form of sarcasm or anger come from them.

Example. One time I did this when I had heard something and the response I got was “what does that have to do with it” that was a demon and in Jesus name I commanded the warring angels be loosed to cast him to a dry place and bind and banish him and Jesus name.

Now.. if it’s a spirit you can see, say an angel appears before you and wants to tell you something, you need to stop and address them and say “ Have you been sent from the spirit of the Most High god who sent His son Jesus to the earth in the form of a man to die on the cross for the sins of humanity and rose again in three days?”

If they say YES, they are truly sent from the Lord BUT if they are not they will disappear right away, say they cannot talk to you and vanish, something to that degree.

Another way to test is to prayer the four prayer points to shut down the enemy that I go through at the beginning of the broadcasts and then ask the Lord to confirm what you have been given beyond any doubt in Jesus name.

Mikey

1) Will God protect America from China if there is a war that breaks out?

2) Will this virus pass?

3) Will America prosper after this virus?

4) Is Trump going to win reelection?


Well Mikey China witnessed Japan get nuked in world war 2 when they just would not stop and China does not want a physical war with the United States because we have many allies included Israel who has one of the most advanced air forces in the world. China attempts to covertly steal things for a reason because they are more interested in winning a technology war right now, they cannot afford to start a war right now when it is looking perhaps more and more like this virus was maliciously unleashed on this world through a “accident”, china has big problems right now from what’s happened and they have most of the world angry with them right now.

Both Mikey and Betina asked about president trump and re-election:
I released a word from the Lord on February 10, 2020 here is an excerpt:

However, I the Lord thy God appoint Kings and Leaders and I say this day the election in the United States shall be even more baffling than the last. There shall be a plot to usurps votes and steal votes, but it will be outed right before the beginning of November and the perpetrators prosecuted says the Lord God for their crimes.

However, says the Lord I am doing a mighty work and there will be events that will lead up to the elections that will even leave the most radical commentators scratching their heads not able to put the pieces together of what is happening because this will be spirit driven, this election and the natural will yield to what I the Lord decree and release on scrolls in the Spirit says the lord. Candidates will out themselves and each other and those whom have dipped into the honeypot of election funds to fund the most lavish and environmentally unfriendly of luxury items shall be exposed and caught RED HANDED says the Lord. I am crushing the fist of socialism and communism in more than one country,says the Lord. For I the Lord do not seek rule that oppresses but that frees those to glorify and serve their
Father in Heaven says the Lord.

A tidal wave says the Lord thy God this day you will see a tidal wave Heading up to November, it shall be triggered by a violent shaking Says the Lord thy God this day.

Doug
Have you noticed how evil is full throttle and in our faces
since the President had been elected?  And how
lawlessness is in your face and daring anyone to do
anything about it?


This is just a simple outline of a few events that have recently occurred that are Biblical and could have a definite meaning?


June 30th, 2015 Star of Bethlehem reappeared in heaven after nearly 2000 years since the birth of Jesus our Savior.

September 23rd, 2017- (Revelation 12) sign in the Heavens appears and never will again. Being that this sign appeared, it makes one wonder what the "Great Red Dragon" that was cast to earth means. Take note that This Virus is contributed to China, The Great Red Dragon Country in essence. I wonder?

Here, is the Kicker and should be given much thought           with all that is going on with the "IN YOUR FACE" evil and suppression of righteousness and church.

President Trump has I believe authored a peace treaty between Israel and Palestinians and will be perhaps implemented either June 1st, 2020 or July 1st, 2020.

Is not a Peace-treaty the mark and beginning of the Tribulation? 
Okay Doug first of all If president trump was one of them they would not be looking to unseat him. Did the liberals EVER look to unseat Obama, never. President trump behind the scenes is upsetting their corrupt orders, communication lines, whats coming out about general Flynn is an example of this being brought to the forefront. They loathe him because he will not play their game and he ordered for special ops to go in and rescue these kidnapped children being held, no that’s not conspiracy I received the answer to that question from someone who is a higher up in military intelligence.

Secondly, the Palestinians have not agreed to the treaty and this is not the Kind of treaty being spoken of in revelation and I believe Ezekiel. The ONLY way I believe the Palestinians will ever agree to a treaty is if Israel is disarmed, the scenarios spoken of where Israel burns all the extra weapons from the war of Ezekiel 39:9 “Then those who dwell in the cities of Israel will go out and set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and bucklers, the bows and arrows, the javelins and spears; and they will make fires with them for seven years.” For Israel to burn those extra weapons some sort of treaty must be brokered.
The word of God never directly says the antichrist makes a treaty between Israel and Palestine either

I am going to use a quote from: (deltadiscovery.com)
The 70th week of the book of Daniel:
 Nobody will know it when the 70th week begins. It will simply be yet another treaty or pact or international agreement among world leaders that have many people’s names upon it. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week… (Daniel 9:27) It is entirely possible that part of the “covenant” will allow the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem, since the temple has to be standing for the Antichrist to reveal himself. On the other hand, the temple may be rebuilt prior to the signing of this particular covenant. The Bible is not clear on that point.

So a peace treaty is one barometer BUT it must have MANY as Daniel says on it, many leaders making a treaty with Israel that the antichrist deceptively brokers. These many I believe are many Arab countries who have been at odds with Israel as well as some Europeans perhaps too.

This treaty president trump is attempting to make just between Palestine ad Israel is more a dispute over land the Palestinians want Israels land when truly the Palestinians are descendants of Esau, the edomites, which came from the land of Jordan.

Hollie
Where do you see the housing market going?

Now for those of you who do not know I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Finance from Sienna College. I happened to be particularly good at economics. So I am pulling from my economic background for this one!

There is supply and there is demand and depending on how supply and demand move with the market you have something called elastic and inelastic goods.

Elastic goods are more luxury based items, not necessities, that fluctuate with the market, so if the market goes down and we see recession people stop buying so much elastic goods such as cars, boats, homes, expensive jewelry things like that.

Inelastic goods move very little with the market and no matter and upswing or downswing they remain steady these are things like bread, milk, certain clothing, food items. Although we may have to move paper towel and toilet paper to the elastic goods category based on what’s happened!

There is also something called disposable income, this is income, that after people have paid their bills, what they have left over to spend in the market. When recessions hit people tend to hold onto their disposable income and save. When the market is thriving people tend to spend more of their disposable income because they are making more money.

The housing market is going to depend upon the economy coming back and how strong. Sometimes as a recession hits people panic and want to sell their homes thinking if there is a crash they will never recoup, however in a recession the market is not flooded with buyers to buy those homes for sale. Dropping interest rates may entice some buyers but you need a market where income and disposable income is higher. Right now people are holding onto their finances because there is so much uncertainty.

However the economy comes roaring back I believe we will see a spike in the housing market.

What are the disciplines that you implement in your daily life?

For example: tongues, praise and worship, and meditating 

Okay, so almost everyday I set my alarm for 4:30 AM, unless the Lord wakes me sooner which many times He does, and I get up while Chris is still asleep, and read and listen to a few chapters in the word of god, then I try to spend 30 minutes to an hour praying in the spirit and in praise and worship. I do go back to bed for a little while after this but I find it so important to start my day with the lord and truly put Him first as it is a sacrifice with all I have on my plate to wake up that early, however I have grown to love it. I also try and stop throughout the day to praise the Lord even if its 2 minutes here 2 minutes there.

I also pray at night and use the 4 prayer points you hear me do, and then I pray against wherever there is resistance from the enemy.

Anne
My daughter’s friend was in the military and killed someone in the line of duty. He was raised catholic and is struggling with this.

He believes He cannot be forgiven. How would you explain God’s grace to him

This is a tough one Anne, because your friend is doing his job, he is defending our freedom and we so appreciate his service God Bless him for being so brave and selfless. However the Lord with Joshua, King David, Samuel, Elijah all to preserve and protect Israel had to be part of killing pagan nations hellbent of destroying Israel under the commands of demonic generals. Its very hard, police officers deal with this too. I would encourage your friend to lay it down at the altar of the lord and loose it from his soul, I talked about that earlier how to do that, and spend time in the word with the Lord. I would also suggest a good Christian counselor that could help him come to terms with what has happened.

Juanita
Regarding President Trump:

Is he surrounded by true Christians? 

Is there a Judas’s in his Trusted Christian circle?

Do you think he knows who the traitors are, and if he is simply keeping his enemies closer?

What I will say Juanita is the Lord is going to shuffle the deck on that one.

Janet
Does the Holy Spirit ever shake, vibrate or the like your body? and what does it mean.? (in my case it is my lower body)

What types of physical manifestations come from the Holy Spirit?

I will say Janet, I have felt what feels like electricity shoot down my body, the Lord in a vision took me up in the spirit a while back and had me in my living room in the same pajamas  and I heard His voice thundering from the heavens, it felt like I had been tasered, you are paralyzed your body completely arrests at the true sound of His voice.

Judy
Is this truth?
I always heard you could so a seed on the word, name and claim it and you started to mention something the other week and I was curious. What does God say about it?

Always in the Word of God when sowing is spoken of it pertains to sowing the word of God in people’s lives, you sow it into the soil of their life and hearts.

Mark 4:1-9: The parable of The Sower
Again Jesus began to teach beside the sea [of Galilee]. And a very large crowd gathered around Him, so He got into a boat [anchoring it a short distance out] on the sea and sat down; and the whole crowd was by the sea on the shore. And He taught them many things in parables, and in His teaching He said to them, “Listen! A sower went out to sow seed; and as he was sowing, some seed fell by the road, and the birds came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocks where there was not much soil; and immediately a plant sprang up because the soil had no depth. And when the sun came up, the plant was scorched; and because it had no root, it dried up and withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. And other seed fell into good soil, and as the plants grew and increased, they yielded a crop and produced thirty, sixty, and a hundred times [as much as had been sown].” And He said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear and heed My words.”

1 Corinthians 9:11-12:
If we have sown [the good seed of] spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things from you?  If others share in this rightful claim over you, do not we even more? However, we did not exercise this right, but we put up with everything so that we will not hinder [the spread of] the good news of Christ.

The key here is Paul saying, they did not exercise the right, to exercise is to exert so its to physically demand people give them money or material things for sowing the gospel, hence “you need to sow into this word and get in on this now if you want the blessing."

Paul was blessed all the time for sowing the word of God in people’s lives however it was God driven, meaning Paul was doing nothing manipulative to make them give or demand that they give. If people gave Paul graciously accepted.

You sow the word of God, you give money and material things, you give of your time.

Galatians 6:7-9:

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.And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.


Proverbs 22:9: He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor.
