The Nine Laws of Financial Harvest


Dear Dr. Usher, 

Many years ago, I heard your teaching on numerology as it relates to finances. Can you share the 9 laws of financial harvest?


God’s word teaches us how to become prosperous and blessed if we follow what His word says.  However, understanding the laws of harvest is not difficult when people have a basic understanding of farming knowledge.  The Bible operates in farming principles but many people ignore this. 

We should understand that God’s ways are not Man’s ways.  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD ” Isaiah 55:8,9.  Many times, we will find in the Bible words like sowing, seeds, harvest and more.  However, if people do not believe the harvest system that God offers us through his word, they will not be able to break the financial burden they have.  The following laws are the principles that God uses to set us free from financial trouble.  People need to learn to follow these principles and realize that God never fails using His system. 

The first law of harvest is very simple: A seed must be planted.  The book of Ecclesiastes 3:2 says: “There is a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted”.  There is a time for everything, and certainly, a time to plant and a time to reap what we planted.  Genesis 8:22 mention “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” The Bible is very clear on this principle. We must first plant a seed in order to see results at harvest time.  If there is no seed planted, then there will be no harvest.  There may be some good seeds out there, but unless those seeds are planted, they will not produce any fruit for the harvest. 

“Your seed must be sown in good ground” is the second law.  Good ground is a place to put your money where it is going to bring forth good fruit for the Lord’s work. You never plant seed with the expectation of it bringing some form of personal benefit.  In fact, when you plant your seed, you must allow your seed to die, then later on it will grow fruit and multiply.  John 12:24 mentions “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit”.  An example of good ground is the Lord’s work. The Lord’s work can be a church, ministry, or minister.  These three things are considered good ground before the eyes of God.  Malachi 3:10 reads: “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”.  In this verse, God is saying that we need to bring offerings and tithes to His storehouse, after this He will provide everything else we need in life. A storehouse is any ministry that uses its resources for the care of the poor, the widows, the fatherless, and etc.  

Law number three: The seed must become useless to the sower.  It is vital that we understand that the seed must become useless to us in order for us to receive its fruit.  See, if we value the seed more than the fruit it will yield, then we will either eat the seed, or put the seed in a vault in order to protect it from harm. In either case the seed will not bear fruit, thus no harvest. The seed is not the harvest. However, planting the seed does require sacrificing it in order for it to bring a harvest. The same is true with your money. In the book of Samuel David had an opportunity to make an offering to God without having to pay (sacrifice) for it.  In 2nd Samuel 24:24 reads: “And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing.  So, David purchased the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.”  Here, David knew that in order for him to offer something to God he had to pay (sacrifice) something in order for it to yield a blessing from God.

Law number four: The kind of seed you sow is the kind of seed you reap. Galatians 6:7 says: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  This is very simple, if you plant corn, you will reap corn; if you want to reap apples, you do not plant bananas.  If you want a financial harvest, you need to plant (invest) money (seed) into good soil or good business opportunities.

Law number five: The size of the harvest is decided on the day you sow the seed; not on the day, you reap the harvest.  Second Corinthians 9:6 mentions: But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. There are many people who are happy with what they have. However, they will not be able to bless others if they do not have more than what they have.  Our God is a God of abundance not of lack.  In addition, He wants to bless us with more than what we have, so that we can be a blessing to those who have committed to doing His work.  Therefore, if we want an abundant harvest we need to plant a predetermined amount of seeds on a regular basis into those who have committed to doing the work of the Lord.

Law number six: You do not reap the harvest in the same season.  It will take a lot of patience and faith in order for the harvest to come forth.  If we walk in doubt thinking to ourselves that the seed that was planted is not working, it is as if we were saying that we do not believe God’s system works.  We have to remind ourselves daily of Ecclesiastes 3, where it says that there is a time for everything therefore; we need to wait patiently to reap what is ours.  Hebrews 6:12 says: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Law number seven: The care of the crops is critical to the success of the harvest.  There are three things that people can do to care for their crop.  First, they should put God first and live a godly life.  It is essential to live  our lives the way that is pleasing to God.  Matthew 6:33 says we should seek the kingdom of God first.  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”  Second, make evangelism of the world a priority.  Genesis 12:2,3 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.  Third, do not allow Satan to deceive you regarding the riches of this world.  James 4:3 reads Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” Satan is a liar and he is always trying to deceive you at all cost.  He will try to attack you when you start receiving the fruits of the harvest.  He will try to deceive you into building wealth for your personal benefit instead of building your wealth for the furtherance of the Kingdom of God. 

Law number eight.  Always sow more when your need is greatest.  Sow seed even when things are bad. The Bible states that the best time to sow is when things seem dead and dried up. The Bible says that Isaac sowed in the land when there was famine and he received a hundred fold. Genesis 26:12 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year a hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.”

Law number nine: Sowing involves physical hard work! Don’t always believe that God will magically give you a harvest. You simply cannot sit on your butt and wait for things to happen. You will need to do your part and work for it. The act of sowing seed may involve you getting a job, learning a trade or skill, or getting a side hustle. The Apostle Paul states in  2 Thessalonians 3:10 ” For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”  Do not expect to eat and enjoy your harvest if you do not put the work in.
