12 Laws of the Harvest

12 LAWS OF THE HARVEST

by Dr. John Avanzini

1 – Your seed must be planted.

John 12:24, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”

2 – You must render your seed useless.

John 12:24, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed.  But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”

3 – You must plant what you expect to harvest.

Genesis 1:12, “The land produced vegetation:  plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.  And God saw that it was good.”

4 – Your harvest size is established when your seed is sown.

II Corinthians 9:6, “Remember this:  Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”

5 – Your seed must be planted in good ground.

Matthew 13:8, “Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop —  a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

6 – You always wait a period of time between planting and harvesting.

Mark 4:26-27, “He also said, ‘This is what the kingdom of God is like.  A man scatters seed on the ground.  27Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how.'”

7 – You must maintain your crops for a proper harvest.

Matthew 13:7, “Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants.”

8 – Always sow to your harvest size, not from your harvest size.

Genesis 26:12, “Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundred-fold, because the Lord blessed him.”

9 – Your expense is always highest at harvest time.

Matthew 20:1, “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard.”

10 – A part of your harvest is for sowing again.

II Corinthians 9:10, “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”

11 – A part of your harvest is for you to keep.

I Corinthians 9:7, “Who serves as a soldier at his own expense?  Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its grapes?  Who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk?”

12 – Your harvest is a miracle.

I Corinthians 3:6, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.”
