Introduction

Numerous people have regretted and failed because they were ignorant of the wisdom keys I am about to share with you. By divine providence and deep search, you’ve come across this informative and biblical wisdom article; kindly share the link to this article so others can escape the devil’s trap and fulfil God’s plan for their lives.

As the Holy Bible states in the book of Hosea, chapter four, verse six, ignorance leads to destruction. If you want to become valuable, know the seasons of life. Knowing the perfect time will make your life productive.

Knowing the seasons of life will prepare you for the future. Before I unveil the seven master reasons you must know God’s timing and your season of life, I will show you from the Holy Bible, creation, and life experiences why times and seasons are necessary to succeed.

 

Time and seasons are life determinants

Seasons are periods during which we perform specific duties productively. For example, a healthy ninety-year-old man cannot work consistently as a healthy twenty-year man because of age (time and seasons).

A ninety-year-old woman cannot complete a hundred-meter race as she did in her twenties because of the season. Her performance in her nineties will not be the same as in her twenties because of natural laws.

Ronaldinho (Christian believers should earnestly pray for him) cannot perform perfectly in 2022 as he did in 2006 because of time and seasons. His age has become a barrier. It doesn’t matter the training Ronaldinho does. He will not be able to produce the same results he displayed in his twenties because of time and seasons.

Ronaldinho’s season of shining has passed. Seasons determine performance because what you can do in your youthful days cannot be done in your old age. Azuma Nelson cannot fight the current boxing star (Tyson Fury) in the boxing ring as he did in his twenties because his season of strength has deteriorated.

The same applies to Mike Tyson. He cannot fight the current boxing champion (Anthony Joshua) in the boxing ring as he did in his twenties because of time and seasons.

Think of any star in the year 2001. Those stars cannot perform perfectly in 2022 as they did in 2001 because their season is over. Time and season teach us lessons. You become obsolete in the following season if you fail to recognize your time and season.

This is one reason you must value time and season. Some seeds demand adequate water before germination. Planting such seeds in the harmattan (dry) season will make the seed unproductive. The problem is not the seed. It is the timing and season. If you plant the seed in the right season, it will germinate. Value time and seasons if you want to become resourceful.

 

The day and nights

Times and seasons determine many things in life. In the book of Genesis, Moses records that darkness covered the world. God, in his wisdom, commanded the light to appear. He separated the light from the darkness.

The separation of light and darkness gave us days and nights. The lights in the firmament of heaven separated the day from the night. We could determine the seasons, months, days, nights, years, and signs through the days and nights. (See Genesis 1:1-18).

God knew humankind would need the seasons, times, and signs to perform specific duties. Without day and night, the world would have been a place of restlessness. We must know the seasons and times to help us know the perfect hour to act.

 

God speaks at specific times and seasons

God (the Holy Spirit) is always speaking, but there are specific times he gets our full attention. In the book of Job, we see a profound word.

 

For God speaketh once, yea twice, [yet man] perceiveth it not.

In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

Job 33:14-16 KJV

Elihu, the Israelite and close friend of Job, declares that God speaks to us in the night. That is, in the season of a dream. When we fall asleep, the Holy Spirit reveals the mind of God to us. God is wisdom, and He works with time.

God knows the best time to get our full attention is the night or the season of rest. When we sleep, our bodies rest. However, our spirit and soul do not rest. Since God is a Spirit, he speaks to our spirit.

When we are asleep, the consciousness of our spirit and soul is more receptive to spiritual forces. In this season, God (the Holy Spirit) gets our full attention. He opens our spiritual ears, eyes, and other spiritual organs to connect with him.

When the Holy Spirit opens our spiritual senses, he reveals the plans of the Trinity to us. Other times, the Holy Spirit unveils the enemy’s plans so we can destroy them. God reveals his plans to us this season because He works with time.

Although God is Eternal, he does not have a beginning or an end. However, in the realms of human beings (earth), he works with us according to the time and seasons. If God could choose a specific hour to reveal his plans to us, we must not joke with seasons and times.

 

The season of plants

In Ghana, specific months help farmers grow their seeds. Most farmers know that it rains at particular months, so they plant their seeds before or within the rainy season to get numerous harvests.

Note that the variety of the seed changes the period of full germination and harvest (season). However, each seed has a specific season of total germination and harvest. Below are some plants that fully germinate irrespective of the seed variety.

  • Generally, maize seed takes a maximum of four months to bear all their fruits.
  • Generally, the cocoa seed takes a maximum of five years to reach its complete harvest.
  • Generally, mango seed takes a maximum of ten years to reach its complete harvest.
  • Generally, the orange seed takes a maximum of fifteen years to reach its entire harvest.
  • Generally, pineapple seed takes a maximum of three years to reach its full harvest.
  • Generally, beans seed takes a maximum of two months to reach their entire harvest.
  • Generally, yam seed takes a maximum of twelve months to reach its full harvest.
  • Generally, coconut seed takes a maximum of twenty years to reach its full harvest.

As stated, there are various seeds because of technology and human knowledge. Yams are in varieties. Some yam seeds can take six months to reach their full harvest. Some beans seed can take one and a half months to reach their full harvest.

The lists go on. However, I have listed the general germination and harvest period of maize, cocoa, yam, coconut, pineapple, mango, coconut, beans, and orange. Carrots, cabbages, cocoyam, and any fruit have specific months of germination and harvest.

God has programmed the earth to work with the seeds we plant on earth to produce at specific seasons. Take seeds of maize from Africa. Plant those seeds in America, Asia, Europe or any continent. The seeds will reach their harvest within four months because that is how God has programmed them.

You can do nothing to stop the germination and harvest period unless you intentionally destroy the seeds in the fertile soil. Irrespective of the country, if you use the proper (natural) method, the seed in the fertile soil will produce at the appointed time because God has programmed the seeds to reproduce at that season.

Although some people have come out with fertilizers and artificial seeds to make some seeds grow before their time, those seeds do not have the quality the natural ones possess. God knew why he allowed specific seeds to grow fast while others kept long. This wisdom should tell you that God works with times and seasons.

 

The season of sowing and reaping

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Galatians 6:7 KJV

Whatever we do on earth is a seed. If you sow good seeds, you will reap the harvest. If you sow bad seed, you reap the harvest. You can deceive humans and animals but cannot fool God Almighty.

When the time comes for you to reap the seeds you have sown, you will get them. The number of years doesn’t matter; God will reward your works. Even if you don’t reap your works, someone connected to you will reap the harvest.

Your good works will create an atmosphere of love. Your evil works will create an atmosphere of pain. If you have sown bad seeds, uproot the seeds. Repent and make restitution for your bad seeds.

God may show you mercy if you stop planting those evil seeds (stealing, fornication, scam, fraud, rape, murder, and the unmentioned wickedness). However, if you don’t repent from the evil seeds you have sown, you will reap them at the appointed time.

You might think God has ignored your evil works. It is just that God is waiting for the perfect time to pay you (meditate on Job 21:30, Psalms 110:5, Nahum 1:2, 2 Peter 2:9, Zephaniah 1:14-18 and freely download my book the mysteries of evil seeds for more profound revelation).

Sow good seeds if you want to enjoy the future. Nature will reflect your good works. Your lineage will reap your seeds; therefore, sow good seeds. Time and seasons will reveal your seed (works).

 

Creation working with time and seasons

Every animal has its season. No animal lives forever. Some animals can live longer than human beings. Some animals, too, can live for over five hundred years. For example, this animal (Ocean Quahogs) can live five hundred (500) years.

This animal has the longest lifespan on earth. Although some animals are considered immortal, Ocean Quahogs can live for 500 years. Domestic animals such as cats, dogs, goats, sheep, parrots, and hens have a lifespan.

  • Generally, doves can live for a maximum of thirty years.
  • Generally, cats can live for a maximum of twenty-five years.
  • Generally, sheep can live for a maximum of twelve years.
  • Generally, eagles can live for a maximum of thirty-five years.
  • Generally, dogs can live for a maximum of twenty years.
  • Generally, hawks can live for a maximum of thirty years.
  • Generally, a tortoise can live for a maximum of two hundred years.
  • Generally, hens can live for a maximum of twenty years.
  • Generally, lions can live for a maximum of twenty-five years.
  • Generally, wolves can live for a maximum of twenty years.
  • Generally, snakes can live for a maximum of thirty years.

Although some of the above animals can die before the stated years, almost every animal listed lives within the stated years. Talk of donkeys, camels, elephants, crows, pigs, and any animal you can think of has a lifespan.

Take a cat, dog, mouse, hen, or any animal from Africa. Place those animals in America, Europe, Asia or any continent. Those animals will live within their lifespan because that is their appointed time on earth.

The animals you picked from Africa will not live additional five years in America, Asia, Europe or any other continent because of the different locations. The hijacked animal living in a good home with good meals and excellent veterinary care can outlive a hijacked animal living in a poor home with poor meals and poor health.

However, God has structured animals to live within a specific period. That is their season of operation. Do you know that God determines the pregnancies of animals? For example, Cats can hold their babies in their stomachs for a maximum of two months and two weeks.

  • Generally, dogs can hold their babies in their stomachs for a maximum of two months and two weeks.
  • Generally, sheep can hold their babies in their stomachs for a maximum of five months.
  • Generally, elephants can hold their babies in their stomachs for a maximum of twenty-two months (about one year and eight months).

Every animal has specific seasons to hold their pregnancy. Take two female cats from Africa whom a male cat impregnated on the same day to America, Asia, Europe, Oceania or any other continent.

Those cats will deliver within two and a half months because that is their delivery season. God has the animals time to live, die, and produce offspring at specific seasons. We know that the period for pregnant women to hold their babies in their wombs is nine months.

Any pregnant woman that exceeds that period is seen as a strange vessel. You can take five women who got pregnant on the same day from America, Asia, and Europe and bring them to Africa.

The pregnant women will give birth within nine months because that is how God has programmed them. God works with time and seasons in the race of humankind. It is, therefore, necessary to know the right seasons and times. Missing the season of God is a great disaster.

 

Humankind works with seasons and times

Manufacturers work with time. When they create a product, they indicate the expiry date. For example, drugs have an expiry date. Processed and packaged food has an expiry date.

Football stars, movie stars, musicians, gospel ministers, doctors, and scientists have a season of performance. A time will come those shining in our time will become obsolete. Abedi Pele of Ghana, Ronaldo of Brazil, Pele of Brazil, Ronaldinho of Brazil, Zidane of France, Samuel Eto'o of Cameroun, Okocha of Nigeria, Michael Essien of Ghana, Didier Drogba of Ivory Coast and several football stars are not relevant today because their season has passed.

In the same way, current football stars, musicians, artists, scientists, and various stars will not be relevant in the next generation because their time will pass. The names I listed were famous between 1993 and 2018.

Although I saw a few of the players listed perform, they are not known today (as of the time of writing this article). Currently, it is more of Christiano Ronaldo, Leonel Messi, Neymar, Dede Ayew, Kudus, Sadio Mane, and Kylian Mbappé because it is their time.

A time will come; these players will be no more. Do you think Christiano Ronaldo, Leonel Messi and any famous players we see and hear about today were not active in the time of Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto, Didier Drogba, Ronaldo, David Beckham, and Zidane? Christiano Ronaldo, Leonel Messi and some football stars we see today were around in Ronaldinho's time, but it wasn’t their season.

When their time came, the world recognized them. Christ Jesus was around when John the Baptist preached the gospel and baptized people. John the Baptist’s name was mentioned all over Israel and several parts of the world.

However, when Christ Jesus’ season came, John the Baptist became “irrelevant.” Christ Jesus took the scene because the Trinity declared his season. God works with the season. When God declares your season, no one can stop you from manifesting.

Why do you think companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and several famous industries keep updating their products? They know the times and seasons. Failure to update their products and services can make them lose customers.

These companies update their service and products with the current trend (technology, service, and knowledge). Failure to do that can make them miss the season. A profitable product shining today will become irrelevant next season if the product manufacturer fails to adjust to the current trend.

I believe Google dominated these search engines (Yahoo, Bing, and Ask) because Google flew with the latest technologies and systems. Failure to align to the season can lead to destruction. Who knew humankind could travel by airplanes, trains, cars, and motorbikes in the first century?

Maybe the prophets of God knew it. However, no man without divine power could see human beings travelling with cars, airplanes, trains, and motorbikes in the first season. Who knew a man from Africa could send a message to someone in America and any continent within a second in the first century?

It is time and seasons. Failure to adapt to the positive systems of the world can make you a loser because time and seasons change. Time and seasons determine the trend. However, you shouldn’t align with “any trend” because that is what the crowd is following.

Some trends are demonic. Any trend that opposes the Word of God (the Holy Bible) is evil. Research any trend before aligning because you can lock yourself in an invisible prison. Knowing the seasons will help you connect with the right people.

 

King Solomon writes about the seasons and times

To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up [that which is] planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV

Solomon, the son of David, knew that time and seasons determine people’s attitudes. Some seasons demand war because some enemies will not bow until you fight. There is a time for planting seeds because hunger hides on the way.

A time comes we cry, laugh, and refrain from embracing because it is the time of action, jubilation, and watchfulness. A time may come your loved one may fall sick or die. It’s a season you cannot escape.

For example, Christmas is a season of jubilation. We celebrate Christmas to remember the birth of our Saviour and Lord Christ Jesus. However, some people say that Christmas is a pagan season.

I choose to remember and celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus on the 25th of December every year. As stated by Solomon, there is time for everything. No man born of a woman will escape death. Everyone has an appointment regardless of their fame, wealth, authority, strength, wisdom, and power.

God can choose to exempt you from death by divine providence. Like Elijah and Enoch, they did not see death. We can leave this world without death because God did not allow some of his prophets to see death.

 

The body works on God’s timing

When the body receives food and water, the digestive system takes the nutrient and forward the waste into the large intestine. From there, the man must flush out that waste (faeces) from the body through the anus.

When the body works for a specific time, it becomes tired. It would help if you rested to allow the body to heal itself. God is a master biologist. God has programmed the human heart to pump blood to the parts of the body.

God has set up military teams in the body known as antibodies. These forces fight incompatible pathogens (bacterium, viruses, fungi and protozoan) that enter the body. God knows the body needs time to work on itself.

Failure to adjust the body to her working and resting season can lead to sickness and death. Try working for twenty hours nonstop (no break or relaxation). You will see that the body will start fighting you because that is not how God programmed the body. This wisdom key should tell you that God works with time and seasons.

 

The appointment with the spirit of death

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Hebrews 9:27 KJV

God gives life because he is the source of life. He can also kill because the Word says so (see 1 Samuel 2:6, Deuteronomy 32:39). God has reserved a time for human departure (death). As stated in Hebrews chapter nine verse twenty-seven, there is a time to die and judgement.

We serve a God of time and seasons. Don’t think you have more days to live because you are young. You have an appointment with death.

 

Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;

Psalms 79:11 KJV

It is better to live as if you can die tomorrow or any moment from now. God holds your life. It can also be that the devil and his cohorts have set a trap for your premature death. You must discern the seasons through dreams, visions, and warnings from the Word.

Sometimes you can discern in your spirit and soul that something is not right. It is an alert. Before something happens on earth, it has already occurred in the realms of the Spirit (meditate on Hebrews 11:3).

This is one reason you must not joke with times and seasons. God works with time and seasons. The devil also works with time and seasons. Keep reading for more profound revelation. Do you value time and seasons?

 

The season of demonic affliction

The devil and his cohorts have afflicted me several times. However, the Holy Spirit gives me victory during this season. Do not think God has forsaken you when the enemy constantly torments you in your dreams and daily life.

That season calls for spiritual warfare (meditate on 1 Corinthians 15:32, 1 Thessalonians 2:18, Ephesians 6:10-18). When the devil keeps fighting you, it is his season. Know how to fight it (the devil). Freely download and read my series of books on my blog for more profound revelation.

 

And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

Luke 4:13 KJV

After the devil tempted Christ Jesus, Luke writes that it departed from Christ Jesus for a season. This means the devil returned to tempt Christ Jesus again. The devil has seasons of operations and rest.

One thing you must know about the devil is that it works with time and seasons. The devil (Satan) roams on earth (see 1 Peter 5:8, Job 1:6-7). Satan is not omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.

The devil cannot be in different places at the same time. However, it has agents who represent him. When the devil fails to get you with a specific strategy, it uses a different plan (meditate on 2 Corinthians 2:11, Ephesians 6:11).

Sometimes, you will experience a robust demonic affliction because the devil and his cohorts have targeted you at that season. You will often see attacks in your dream. Anytime you are about sleep, you experience sudden fear.

It is a season of demonic affliction. The devil can use humans, animals and demons to afflict you this season. However, do not give up because you serve the greatest God (see 1 John 4:4).

The devil is attacking because it is his season. God will deliver you through prayers when you call on him (see Ephesians 6:10-18, 1 Peter 5:8-9, John 10:10, James 5:13, Romans 10:13).

 

The season of glorification

These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

John 17:1-5 KJV

After Christ Jesus endured the abuse of sinful men and received the punishment of humankind, he reminded God of the glory. The Heavenly Father set an hour for Christ Jesus to receive his glory.

Christ Jesus did not qualify for the glory until he bore the punishment for our sins. There are times we must pass through the pain of suffering to receive the crown of God. Without the pain, the reward will not come

This is one reason you must not give up when storms arise. Like a football player, a club will not sign him until he passes their test. The football team must assess (scout) the player.

The player must pass the training before playing with the starting eleven. In the same way, you cannot receive God's blessings without fulfilling God's promises. Most of God’s promises have conditions attached to them.

If you fulfil your part, God will also fulfil his part. Like Christ Jesus, he passed the test of abuse and death. Christ Jesus reminded God that the hour has come for him to receive the glory he had with him in the beginning.

God has set a time (hour) for you. If you pass the test, you will receive the reward at the chosen time. In the following article, I will throw more light on the time and seasons of God. I will write in detail about how to discern the time and seasons of God and why you must work with God’s time (seasons).
