And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2.

And those are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold. Mark 4:20.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

You will never have perfect joy until you are doing My perfect Will for your life.

Jesus explained this on a basic level, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21. And I do not mean in order to enter just when you die, but living days of the Kingdom on earth even now.

There are different levels of doing My Will, and the level you are walking in determines your level of joy and the blessings that can flow into your life right now.

Jesus explained this to you in the first parable He told, which opens your understanding to all the parables. But if you do not understand the parable of the sower, you will not fully understand any of His parables.

It all has to begin with My Word and what you do with My Word. All creation started with My Word, is upheld by My Word, and works by My Word. Every Word I speak is a law that cannot be altered.

Disobedience to the law does not get you the results you want. You know this in the laws of nature that I put in the world. People working in chemistry and physics labs know this very well. If you disobey the laws of chemistry and physics there can be disastrous results, unleashing powerful forces. But this is the same with every Word of My mouth. In keeping them is great reward and gives you the good of the land, but in disobeying you are destroyed by the words of your mouth. The one who guards his mouth protects his life; the one who rashly opens his lips invites in his own ruin. Proverbs 13:3.

Now let us look at the parable of the sower. First I would remind  you that Jesus spoke this parable to believers. The crowd consisted of His own countrymen, Jewish believers, who were meticulous at guarding My Word and teaching it to their children. They were all familiar with My Word. So He is not talking to unbelievers. In fact, there were always scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees around trying to catch Him on some point of the Law.

This parable has four groups of believers in it and Jesus likens their hearts to soil upon which the seed of My Word is sown.

The first group in the parable, when the seed of My Word fell, heard it but did not understand it, so Satan came and snatched away what had been sown in their hearts. This group has hard hearts that shut out My Word. They saw no value in it. They made no effort to understand Scriptures or My power. They were just too busy. I call them the group of “no position.” They really have no position on My Word. Neither hot nor cold. They are believers but My Word has no importance in their lives.

These are generally out of My Will. They do not even realize that I have beautiful plans for their lives. They are just getting through each day. They usually have lives of sporadic joy, and they come to have less and less, especially as they get older.

The next group at first finds My Word amazing and would like the good results it promises, but they have no root in themselves, so are only temporary. They are the group I call “first opposition.” When affliction or persecution arises because of the Word, immediately they fall away.

If they do not see the benefits immediately, they no longer have any interest in My Word, saying it does not work as promised. They never renew their minds so they are not transformed.

This group has no harvest either.

The next group is not hostile to My Word, they hear it, but I call them the group of “no sense of mission.” They have no concern for My plans, especially if they involve helping other people or witnessing to My Word. The worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful. When things that pull at their flesh arise and they allow these to choke out the Word and never do My Will. These end up trapped by the thorns they allowed to grow and entrap them.

These three groups are dangerous to be in. Though they are believers they never produce any fruit. They live mediocre, fruitless lives even though they have been given My Words and heard them. They end up doing the devil’s will for their lives and never connect with My Kingdom on earth.

The fourth group consists of those who hear the Word and accept it and bear fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixtyfold, and some a hundredfold. Mark 4:20. This is the group who have “taken hold of the great commission.” They are “all in” in their commitment to Me. They are busy about My affairs, and some to a greater degree than others.

Do you see the different levels of doing My Will here?

Let Me show you what they are. I tell you that before you are transformed (metamorphosis, like a caterpillar being transformed to a butterfly by dying to its old self and coming forth as a new creature) into the new creation you have become in your spirit when you receive Jesus as Lord, you must renew your mind with My Word. In being born again in Jesus your spirit becomes alive to Me and dead to sin, but your soul (mind, will, and emotions) is still thinking as you did before you were saved.

You must receive My implanted Word into your heart, which can save your soul, and hear it, read it, meditate on it, speak it, and do it until your mind is reprogramed to a whole new way of seeing things and speaking about things. And this is what transforms you. And the more diligence with which you do this, that is, how much you decide you want to put your life into this, determines that level of My Will you will operate at. And this also determines the amount of your harvest.

My apostle Paul was all in and harvested much from his work to save souls for Me. He wrote, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove (dokimazo (δοκιμάζω): put to the test, prove, examine) what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect (téleios (τέλειος,) which is an adjective, derived from télos, meaning “consummated goal,” from having gone through the necessary stages to reach the end-goal, i.e. developed into a consummating completion by fulfilling the necessary process). Romans 12:2.

The levels of doing My Will are first good (thirtyfold), then well-pleasing (sixtyfold), and then the highest and matured level is that of living in the flow of My perfect Will for your life (the hundredfold).

And it is possible to reach the hundredfold even in a time when the rest of the world is in famine. In a time of severe famine, the son of Abraham, Isaac, decided to move down to Egypt to get food. But I told him not to go but to stay right where he was and plant seed and I would bless him as I had his father Abraham because Abraham had obeyed My Word.

To plant seed did not make sense in the drought, looking at the dry and parched earth, but if you wait for perfect conditions to plant seed, you probably never will. But Isaac stayed where he was and sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the Lord blessed him, and the man became rich, and continued to grow richer until he became very wealthy. Genesis 26:12-13. I had led him to the wells his father had dug that the Philistines had closed up, but for Isaac, I reopened them. He had plenty of water, hidden wells.

So let us consider the levels and begin to examine your life to see where you are.

And if you want more, even in My perfect Will there are higher and higher stages of revelation and anointing. Even now, beholding as in a mirror My glory in Jesus, who is My Word, you are being transformed (metamorphosis) into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord Spirit. 2 Corinthians 5:18.

You only come to reach the full light of My perfect Will when you transition to your place of glory in My Kingdom in Heaven, and it is even another level of glory there when you receive your glorified body. Then redemption is full in your spirit, soul, and body. And you will know the beauty of perfection. But for now the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day. Proverbs 4:18.

The first stage of My Will is the basic stage, this is where all begin who take Jesus as Lord. You become righteous with My own righteousness in Christ and you are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heaven. And you receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

This happens when you believe in your heart that I took away all your sins in the death of My Son and confirmed that to you in His resurrection, and you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, you are born again as a new creation in Christ with all your sins gone and you are made righteous with My own righteousness before Me. This is My will for your life, but it goes farther, in fact, there are no limits to how far it can go.

It is not just My Will that all are saved, it is My Will that all come to know the truth. And if you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.

But many believers do not grow by being hungry for the pure milk of My Word. They stop at salvation and do not renew their minds with My Word so their lives generally look just like those of unbelievers. They battle with anger, fear, addictions, doubt, sickness, lack, and a host of other problems. They grumble and complain, speak what they don’t want, thinking it is the truth, and attribute what the devil does in their lives to Me and cry and beg at Me to heal, prosper and fix their lives.

Many of these live their lives hating themselves, Me and others. But they never understand they already have all good things in Jesus, they just have to enforce their rights by faith and go after the devil and not Me. They need to renew their minds which then will take care of their mouths, for the mouth speaks whatever fills the heart.

They are like the children of Israel wandering in the desert when the promised land I had given them was right there just waiting for them to enter and take it by faith.

Others are loyal to Me but act just like Job before I spoke to him. They are accepting everything the devil sends as My Will and putting up with it. Some are even welcoming sickness and poverty thinking it pleases Me for them to suffer.

As far as farming is used as a comparison here, they are growing the seed but they are not being careful with pulling out weeds and bitter roots, and they are not watering it with more Word, so they have no significant harvest, like the first three groups Jesus explained in the parable of the sower.

In Christ, I have opened all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge to you, and your redemption from the curse makes the Blessing of Abraham and the promise of the Spirit by faith available to you. It is of infinite eternal value to be saved. The harvest of that will keep blessing you forever in My Kingdom.

I am offering for all to know Me from the least to the greatest by My Word and by My Spirit in you and on you. But not all are taking up that offer.

But those who take Me up on My offer and delight in My Word and will hear it, read it, speak it, and do it so that it becomes an important part of their lives begin to see things changing. The seeds planted in their hearts begin to grow and sprout and show.

But My Son explained, “Take care what you listen to. By your standard of measure it will be measured to you; and more will be given you besides. For whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.” Mark 4:24-25.

So here comes the understanding for the differences in the harvests of the fourth group, the difference among the thirtyfold, sixtyfold, and one hundredfold harvests. It depends on the number of seeds you are planning and the diligence you are showing in cultivating it to harvest, as well as how diligently you are harvesting. You must put in the sickle when the harvest comes and not miss it and let it spoil outside your door. Mark 4:29.

The ones whose lives bear the thirtyfold are doing My good Will. The sixtyfold are up a notch to doing My “well pleasing” will. And the one hundredfold group are doing My perfect Will. And we could go higher. Indeed, I also speak of the thousandfold in My Word.

In the fortieth year that they had wandered in the desert, Moses set the promised land before the younger generation and said to them, “May the LORD, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand-fold more than you are and bless you, just as He has spoken to you!” Deuteronomy 1:10.

They had a Word from Me that opened up a whole new level. A goldfish will grow if you take it out of the bowl and put it in a river, but in a bowl it stays the size of the bowl and no bigger no matter how long it lives. Selah.

If you do not take off the limits of what My Word can do, you won’t increase to doing My perfect Will for your life.

My good will is the level of loving and keeping My Word but limiting yourself to a more surface understanding of My Word. You have not given it the diligence to go deeper and to seriously commit to taking your thoughts captive and saying only My Words. You do not see yourself as I do.

You have looked into My Word but not seen who you really are in Christ. You have begun to renew your mind beyond where most believers walk, but you have not developed the trust to stand on My Word no matter what comes your way in the flesh arena without worrying and speaking contrary. You do more talking in your prayers than listening but you are sincere.

You still are bound by manmade traditions that keep you from walking in prosperity, healing, and My perfect Will and still find it hard to forgive.

In the early church, a believer named Apollos was at the level of My good will, but Priscilla and Aquila, who were companions of Paul and had reached a high level of maturity in doing My Will, took him aside and instructed him further so he went up to the next level, that is “well-pleasing.”

In the “well-pleasing” level of doing My Will, you are delighting in My Word and growing in prayer and the reading and doing of My Word, And from there, if you do not settle down as a “know it all,” and become unteachable, I can take you higher as you learn to give what is within as charity to others and to come to the level of perfect persuasion that by My Word I can do anything and there is nothing I cannot change, reshape, restore, remake, cancel out, raise from the dead, give new limbs and life, in other words, there is no work of the devil I cannot undo for you who have faith and will work with Me to bring My Will into the earth with My Word.

But many hit a plateau and remain there with their devotions which become habits and not joyful journeys into My Word. They are more skillful in withstanding the attacks of the devil. They are still loyal and their lives are different than unbelievers but they have things in their lives that put a ceiling on their hopes and limit their plans and dreams. They are not fully persuaded.

Many get stuck here by never seeking to know My perfect Will but just do whatever they see as fit and good and then ask Me to bless it. They do not think that I reveal My Will to them, they think they have to find it. They see themselves as performing for Me rather than with Me.

They are trying to please Me in the way they have decided, often from the religious traditions others are teaching them that actually hold them back so that they do not really understand who they are in Christ, and do not truly have a oneness with Me but put up walls of guilt and shame that stop their full participation in My perfect Will for them.

This group often gets very frustrated because they keep their lives on hold waiting for Me to show up and tell them My Will, but actually they are not even doing My basic Will from My Word of rejoicing always, praying without ceasing and giving constant thanks. Instead they are very worried they are not doing My Will, which is actually totally out of My Will. Why? Because I specifically command you not to worry or be anxious about anything but to come and submit your petitions and prayers to Me of what you are worried about and  let Me take care of it as  you thank Me and listen for My answer to carry it out. Yet they do not do this.

This is the group I address at the church of Ephesus who were loyal to Me but had left their first love. Without keeping the freshness of first love you will never get to My perfect Will. You will become lukewarm and seek nothing higher.

Your heart has not yet become one of pure love, the top stage of development that My apostle Peter speaks of. 2 Peter 1:-7. And Peter understood this for he had gone from the good to the well-pleasing to the perfect level of walking in My Will for his life. In the good level, he was totally committed to Jesus, but he had denied Jesus and repented, and when Jesus asked him if he loved him with the perfect agape love he had replied that he loved Him with the love of a friend and brother (filio). But that was enough for him to feed My sheep.

But as he developed he came to perfect love (agape) and it overflowed to all people so that he was committed to saving them and was willing to go to the gentiles. He never had any rancor toward anyone again, not even himself. He was ready to lay down his life, not only for Me but also for My sheep rather than ever lead them astray by giving in to the world.

But this also has to do with getting filled with the Holy Spirit, which you must do, it is not an option if you want to walk in My perfect Will. Be earnest about pursuing the gifts of the Spirit but above all pursue love. The difference is in being in My perfect Will is being perfected in love.

But without allowing Me to pour My love into your heart by the gift of My Spirit you will not reach that stage of perfect love. And this only comes through the connection of your spirit with Mine. Do not grieve or quench the Spirit in you and on you. And speaking in tongues takes you to a whole new level of speaking out My perfect Will and finishing the work I gave you to do.

Indeed, that is the way I tell you to know My perfect Will. Remember what you read in the book of Ephesians? “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourself and one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.” Ephesians 5:15-20.

But please be aware that you need to harvest at any level and not let it rot saying you are expecting no return, as some do, saying they would rather be poor for Me. Thought I tell you poverty is a curse. I need you to fund My projects for Me as I prosper you because of the Covenant. “BUT REMEMBER THE LORD YOUR GOD FOR IT IS HE WHO IS GIVING YOU THE POWER TO MAKE WEALTH that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:17-18.

I give you the power, the ability, the creativity, to produce wealth to confirm My covenant. To show the world the richness of the blessing that comes from covenant connection with Me. A light to the nations of My goodness that funds Covenant projects, which are Kingdom projects on earth.

I want to understand that the harvests I am speaking of are all amazing. The thirtyfold is not the equivalent of thirty times as neither, respectively, are the sixtyfold or the hundredfold.

Folding doubles every time you fold the previous number of folds, it is not multiplication but a constant doubling of the doubling. Like starting with one cent and doubling every day the amount of the doubling the day before.

If you took a single penny and doubled it every day, by day 30, you would have $5,368,709.12. and that is the thirtyfold return Jesus spoke of.  However, it is important to note that it is all about the power of doubling – if you changed the doubling time to just 27 days, you would only have $671,088.64. But if you changed the doubling time to 54 days (which is not even sixtyfold) you would have $90,072,992,547,409.00 which is over 90 trillion. Only Abraham, Isaac and Solomon have had riches like this. No one today does. But you could if you understand the hundredfold and how it works.

It comes from sowing into My Kingdom with the works of your hands. It is using the talents, the manna I give you, and investing it back into the Kingdom so as to prosper the work of your hands with the gifts and talents and power I supply. It is not just toilsome labor for a day’s wage. It is inventions and works of your hands and creative ideas that better lives and bring back a hundredfold to you for you to keep reinvesting into more creative works and building projects for the Kingdom to save souls for eternity. It is the harvest of being in My perfect Will for then you know My voice and are open to direction. Like Isaac.

Looking at the hundredfold as folding paper, here is how the thickness of the paper would grow due to exponential growth. The average paper thickness in 1/10th of a millimeter (0.0039 inches.) When you perfectly fold the paper in half, you will double its thickness. Folding the paper in half a third time will get you about the thickness of a nail. Seven folds will be about the thickness of a notebook of 128 pages. 10 folds and the paper will be about the width of a hand. 23 folds will get you to one kilometer—3,280 feet. 30 folds your paper will be 100 kilometers high. 42 folds will get you to the Moon. 51 folds would take you to the Sun. 81 folds and your paper will be almost as thick as the Andromeda Galaxy. Finally, at 103 folds, you will get outside of the observable Universe.

In Jesus you have Heaven and earth. It has pleased Me to give you the Kingdom and access to all that is there. That is bigger than the universe. It is the more than the hundredfold

Never just bury the talents that the seed of My Word plants in you, but invest them according to My Will for the assignment of your life. My Will is not for you to retreat from the world and bury yourself away from it, but to go out to save souls and take back territory from the devil’s occupation.

When you step into My perfect Will for your life, you will know it. You will have perfect joy no matter what comes against you because you know My grace is sufficient for you to win over the devil’s tactics. You can say like My servant Paul, who walked in My perfect Will for his life, “nothing moves me,” even in a prison, “I am overflowing with joy.” You can sing praises at midnight chained to the floor in an inner prison and smile as you watch all the gates fly open and the chains loosed and see everyone, including the jailer who bound you there and his entire household get saved and come to know the truth. You can shake off the poisonous snakes the devil sends you way right into the fire and go on to heal all the sick in that territory, like Paul did on Malta. You can go about doing good as you undo the works of the devil. Like Philip in Samaria.

You will say with Jesus, “To do your Will, O LORD, is My delight and your law is within My heart.”

I love you. Renew your mind and be transformed so you can examine in every situation what is My good and My well-pleasing and My perfect Will for you at that moment. And  you will choose the perfect if you know Me.

To those who have received the same precious faith as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. 2 Peter 1:1-11.
