Daily Meditations: The Potency Of The Law Of Sowing And Reaping

Must read

It may come as a surprise to many that the original inhabitants of Egypt were black folk just like the face of the Sphinx which is the face of a black man.

Noah gave birth to Shem, Ham and Japheth (Genesis 5:32). Ham is the father of the black race which is known in The Bible as Cush. In fact, Ham was the father of Cush who was the father of Nimrod, the first man who tried to rule the whole world. The people of Cush or the sons of Ham as they were called were the people who enslaved the Hebrew nation for 400 years in Egypt hence Psalm 78:51 says “He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, the firstfruits of manhood in the tents of Ham”.

Now, it gets interesting. From The Bible we understand that the Hebrews were enslaved for 400 years “Then the LORD said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there” – Genesis 15:13.

Now, it gets even more interesting when you consider that black people were enslaved for 400 years in the Americas until May13, 1888 when Brazil (the last nation in the Western Hemisphere to abolish slavery) ended slavery.

What should we learn from this? In my opinion, this is evidence that the law of sowing and reaping is very potent and affects individuals, nations and races for good as well as for evil and is cause for all men to think before they sow because “God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” – Galatians 6:7.
