Words Do Not Return To Him Void

Hi M____,

It is always good to hear from you. God has given you eyes to see and ears that hear, and you realize that is exactly what He has to do before anyone else will see or hear His Truth.
I was just now talking with a woman about this same subject of witnessing to a friend who seemed to want to be engaged, and yet seemed totally unable to accept the Biblical answers to the questions posed in the conversation.  I will tell you the same thing I told this her. It took me two whole years to accept the meaning of the word ‘aion.’ Years later it took another two whole years to accept the total sovereignty of God.
In 2002, the Concordant Publishing Concern fellowship in Richmond, Virginia, invited me to come and speak to them about the doctrines which they knew I believed which were contrary to their own doctrines. Out of 80 people in attendance, only one ever responded to the two talks I gave there in Richmond, the first concerning the Law of Moses Versus The Law of The Spirit, and the second concerning The Israel of God. But that one person responded to those two talks only after two whole years had passed. Just like me, it took two whole years to debunk all the junk that had been flourishing in his heart and mind for many years.
So be patient with people like your friend. In God’s appointed time you will reap a hundredfold in this life.

Mat 19:27 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?
Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Mat 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
Mat 19:30 But many [ that are] first shall be last; and the last [ shall be] first.
Mar 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
Mar 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
Mar 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Mar 10:31 But many [ that are] first shall be last; and the last first.

I am sure you realize that “houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands,” are all spiritual types of spiritual blessings.
The point is that your planting of seed will, in God’s time, bear fruit. It may very well take a couple of years to do so, but it will do so, even “in this time.”

Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [ in the thing] whereto I sent it.

Your brother in Christ.
Mike
