God is a Farmer
I am a farmer. My father was a farmer, and his father was a farmer. So too does the King of Jews choose to reveal himself to this world. The proof of this statement is backed by His many scriptural references to agriculture. Growing up on a West Texas cotton farm, I first believed God was the original cotton farmer. For Messiah said, "the fields are white and ready for the harvest." Only a cotton farmer could truly appreciate the beauty of a years worth of work manifested as a snow white field of fiber. Yeshua, aka Jesus, also taught that He was the sower of good seed. Therefore, I saw the need to believe in Him as "farmer friendly" as I planted my fields in hope of a great white harvest. Later on, I entered the livestock industry and became a cattle and goat farmer like my grandfather had. Then I read a scripture about an end of time scenario where God will sort out the goats and slaughter them because of their stubborn nature. Believe you me, that verse speaks truth. I can't recount the times I was horned and rammed by those damned goats. Over a decade ago, Farmer God spoke to me to sell my farm in Texas and move to New Zealand. Coming here first on vacation, I saw this land so grand from the eyes of a farm boy. Wow, how many cows can it carry? And man, just look at those green fields of roaming white fiber. Sheep, sheep, and more sheep. Something I had never tried, but the One pierced at side had said, "Do not dread, you are my sheep here led." Then I read, Yeshua was the Lamb slain who overcame my sin and fear.
So why shouldn't I move here?
