REVELATION: THE ECOSYSTEM BETWEEN HEAVEN AND
Prov 19:17 AMP
He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and
that which he has given He will repay to him. [Prov
28:27; Eccl 11:1; Matt 10:42; 25:40; 2 Cor 9:6-8; Heb

PIX: Today as I pondered this scripture, I saw a
living forest of perfectly balanced ecosystem. I
understood the principal that as the tree dies, it gives
food for the bugs, which in turn give food for another
creature. Each and every life factor is dependant upon
the functioning of something else. It is like we
breathe oxygen to live and expel carbon dioxide. The
plants breath our carbon dioxide to live and expel
ECOSYSTEM DEFINITION FROM THE WEB
An ecosystem is a natural unit consisting of all plants,
animals and micro-organisms (biotic
factors) in an area functioning together with all of the
factors of the environment. An ecosystem is a unit of
interdependent organisms which share the same habitat.
Ecosystems usually form a number of
food webs which show the interdependence of
the organisms within the ecosystem.
REVELATION: I saw how this demonstrates the
above scripture. We partner with God in ministering
life to those He loves. As we do this, He repays,
recompenses, restores, makes restitution to us to
continue the same interdependent cycle of ministry
between heaven and earth.
Matt 10:42 AMP
And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in
rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he
is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not
lose his reward.
Matt 25:40 AMP
And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in
so far as you did it for one of the least [in the
estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for
Me. [Prov 19:17.]
2 Cor 9:6 AMP
[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly
will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows
generously [that blessings may come to someone] will
also reap generously and with blessings.
Heb 6:10 AMP
For God is not unrighteous to forget or overlook your
labor and the love which you have shown for His name's
sake in ministering to the needs of the saints (His own
consecrated people), as you still do.
