What do sheep, goats, wheat, chaff, and double-portion have to do with Spring?

This 3rd month of this 20th day of this 2014th year marks the first day of Spring. The number 3 means to “Conform: obey; copy; imitate; likeness; tradition” (Milligan). This day contains a double ‘20,’ where 20 is God’s Holiness; and more specifically “Holy: tried and approved (or unholy: tried and found wanting)” (Milligan). Nothing, no thing, escapes the judgment of God. There comes a point where God’s mercy must give way to His judgment, in order for a greater opportunity for repentance for those to turn from their wicked ways, repent, receive this mercy, and be saved. Galatians 6:7 warns us “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

This 2014th year is a double-portion year for all the inhabitants on this earth—those who are God’s children, and those who are not. However, the double-portion for those who belong to the Lord will be far different than the double-portion given to those who are not His.

The number 14 means “double: duplicate; reproduce; recreate; disciple; servant; bond-slave” (Ira Milligan, Understanding the Dreams You Dream, © 2010). Depending on whether you are a genuine son and daughter (a disciple) of the Most High God, or a bond-slave to the world (the devil), will determine what double-portion harvest you will reap this season. The roosters are coming home to roost, family. And those things, those “roosters” that have been released will now find their way home into the lives of those from whom they were hatched.

If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it today, right now, by saying this prayer out loud: “Jesus, forgive me for my sins. I am sorry. I truly desire to be saved and reconciled back to God, my Father, through You. I receive Your sinless Blood as payment in full for my sins—past, present, and future. I now call You my Lord and Savior, and invite You to live within my heart, and to permanently live within me. I make You Lord over me and over my life from this moment on. Amen.” Congratulations! You are now a child of God, made whole and made new, by the Blood of Jesus Christ!

God tells us that we are blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:2). Be a blessing to someone by sending them this word of encouragement. If God did not already put someone in your spirit and on your heart that needs to read this uplifting message from above, simply ask your Heavenly Father who to bless on today. Forward this message right now by email, facebook, or twitter.

Jesus is coming soon!

May God Bless you and keep you always.

With warmest regards,

And, in service of The Most High King,

Matthew
