Proverbs of a 40 yr old man

Why does fresh soil smell so good? Maybe its because it is dust where we came from and dust we will return. We have this connection with soil and clay the same way our spirit is connected to Heaven. God has set eternity in our hearts, and our flesh as well longs to be free from the curse of sin and death. The Apostle Paul said who shall deliver me from this body of death? Also all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. Adam and Eve cursed the ground because of their sin and rebellion. Through one man death was brought to all but through Christ life was brought to all. God bought a field. He purchased the world back on the Cross from the power of death and eternal hell. Took the keys of life and death from the devil and now Jesus is the Great Sower of this Earth. He is the incorruptable seed that has been sowed to restore not only the curse on the earth but the hardening curse of death in mens hearts. Jesus said, I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels, a plentiful harvest of new lives. Amen. For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. God in Christ is looking for a harvest of souls for a new heavens and new earth. Making all things new, His Kingdom come thy will be done! So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; They are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also spiritual bodies. The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man. What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever. This old wineskin must come off and new wineskin must come on! We now have this light shining in our hearts, this gift of the incorruptible seed living in us but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. We are God's fellow workers; we are God's field, God's building. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. The Son of Man is the farmer who plants the good seed. The field is the world, and the good seed represents the people of the Kingdom. The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one. The enemy who planted the weeds among the wheat is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world, and the harvesters are the angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will remove from his Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. And the angels will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind. They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly. For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

Study Matt. 13:44
