  • and this is so important,is trying to force fruit
  • 00:06:41.075 --> 00:06:44.712
  • is trying to force fruitout of season.
  • 00:06:44.712 --> 00:06:45.279
  • out of season.The Bible said
  • 00:06:45.279 --> 00:06:47.081
  • The Bible saidas long as the earth exists,
  • 00:06:47.081 --> 00:06:48.449
  • as long as the earth exists,there's seed,
  • 00:06:48.449 --> 00:06:50.551
  • there's seed,time, and harvest.
  • 00:06:50.551 --> 00:06:51.352

  • 00:07:08.536 --> 00:07:09.670
  • And that's whythe scripture said,
  • 00:07:09.670 --> 00:07:12.106

  • Many people are tryingto get fruit in the season
  • 00:07:26.921 --> 00:07:28.289
  • to get fruit in the seasonbefore it's due.
  • 00:07:28.289 --> 00:07:29.590

  • you cannot force somethingto happen out of season,
  • 00:07:33.794 --> 00:07:35.396
