NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS – PART 5
NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS
The Kingdom of Yahweh and all of creation is built on Yahweh’s Laws, His Torah.
Let’s look at the Torah first to see one of Yahweh’s Laws for making Fire Proof Investments. Exodus 23:10-11, “And you shall sow your land six years, and you shall gather (reap) its produce. 11And the seventh year you shall let it rest and let it lie fallow, and the needy of your people shall eat. And what they leave, the animals of the field shall eat. So you shall do to your vineyard, to your oliveyard.”
We find here in Exodus 23, Yahweh’s Law of Sowing and Reaping. Yahweh and Yeshua often teach through agricultural examples. This is a universal law that applies in every area of life. You sow love, you will reap love. You sow clothing to the homeless, you will always be receiving clothing. You sow money, you will reap money.
I want to make a side note that in the Hebrew you see something in verse 10, not seen in the English. Following the word sow and the word gather is the Hebrew letters Aleph/Tav, or in the Greek, Alpha/Omega. It is Strong’s word number 853, never translated into English, but it demonstrates that this law is a covenant law signed off on and ratified by Yeshua Himself, our Aleph/Tav, our First and Last, our Alpha and Omega!! As you read the Old Testament, look for Strong’s # 853, the Aleph/Tav, it is literally Yeshua’s initials in the Tanakh!
Also, notice another principle displayed in these verses, work or sow for six, then rest for one. Sow and reap for 6 years, then let your land rest for 1 year. Sow and reap for 6 days, then rest on the Sabbath! The Sabbath cycle is built into this Law of Sowing and Reaping. In fact the Sabbath cycle is an integral part of this law. You cannot separate these two laws. According to this passage, sowing and reaping works only in conjunction with the Sabbath cycle. If nothing else, the Sabbath is Yahweh’s time management system for His people. Observing the Sabbath laws causes the law of sowing and reaping to bring Yahweh’s blessing into your life. If you pervert, or break, the Sabbath law, don’t expect the sowing and reaping law to work for you.
