(Galatians 6: 7 – 8)
In Galatians 6: 7 – 8, we read: “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” (KJV).
“Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by his precepts being set aside) He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.) For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the spirit will from the spirit reap eternal life” (The Amplified Bible)
From the above scriptures, we can conclude that it is wrong for anyone to claim to be born-again or saved, and filled with the Holy Spirit, and a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ while at the same time deliberately or consciously sowing to the flesh (Galatians 5: 19 – 21) Such a person is guilty of mocking and despising God. Such a one is deceiving or deluding himself or herself. He or she will not reap “life everlasting” but “corruption” or decay, ruin and destruction (V. 8) Eternal death awaits such a one at the end of the day – except there is sincere repentance on the part of that person, and sowing to the Spirit before it becomes too late. There is no repentance in the grave. If you doubt it, try to consult the rich man’s account with Lazarus found in Luke 16: 19 – 31.
What are you sowing? Are you sowing to the flesh or to the spirit? Remember, the law of harvest demands that what you sow is what you will reap (Romans 6: 20 – 23; I Corinthians 6: 9 – 10; Galatians 5: 22 – 25)
