It Doesn't Mix

I was continuing to do some reading in Deuteronomy when I came upon this: You shall not sow your vineyard with different kinds of seed, lest the yield of the seed which you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard be defiled.
You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.
You shall not wear a garment of different sorts, such as wool and linen mixed together. Deut 22:9-11
I stopped reading and began to meditate.
Does this scripture say anything to us today?
Is there any relevance to Old Testament scripture in a New Testament time?
I believe there is.
This word prohibits mixing of differing items; seeds, animals, and clothing.
Different seed germinates and sprouts at different times. Can you imagine what a mess your garden would be if you just mixed all of the seed and plant up and planted it?
What about plowing with two different animals? The size and step of each is different, as is their diets.
Paul brought this same concept home to us in 2 Cor 6:14-16; Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
I think it goes further than that.
James deals with this when he talks about the tongue.
Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. James 3:10-12
Too many Christians try to mix a new life in Christ with old worldly ways.
It will never work.

  1. Brother Tim, brother Calvert took the same massage even further. He had stats on d n a mixing. It’s just near unbelivible what sciencetists are doing. I pray God for their failure!
