THE INDESTRUCTIBLE SEED
We wish all our readers a wonderful, joy filled Christmas with God’s blessings!
1Peter 1:23 GW: You have been born again, not from a seed that can be destroyed, but through God’s everlasting word that can’t be destroyed.
1Peter 1:23 AMP: You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God.
Here the Bible tells us that the seed of the Word of God that was planted in our spirits and got us born-again is an INDESTRUCTIBLE, IMMORTAL SEED.
The seed of God’s Word may lie dormant in the earth (like it did for 400 years between Malachi and the birth of Christ) and human hearts because of unbelief and disobedience BUT IT CAN NEVER BE DESTROYED AND IT IS IMMORTAL: it will be as efficacious as it is now in 1000 or 1 million or 1 trillion years!
Because the Word of God is spirit and is life.
John 6:63 NIV: The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.
John 6:63 GW: Life is spiritual. Your physical existence doesn’t contribute to that life. The words that I have spoken to you are spiritual. They are life.
Spiritual beings are eternal: they cannot be destroyed.
Satan, evil spirits and rebellious men cannot be destroyed or annihilated NOT EVEN BY GOD!
They can be CONFINED AND PUNISHED (as they are in hell and will be in the lake of fire (Rev.20.13-15)) BUT THEY CANNOT BE DESTROYED: because they are spirits and were created from a part of God that He breathed into them (Gen. 2.7) and GOD IS INDESTRUCTIBLE!
So, if you continually plant the seed of God’s Word by speaking and thinking it (2 Cor. 4.13, 1 Jn.2.5) and water it by the power of the Spirit (1 Cor.14.2, Eph. 6.18, Rom. 8.26) through efficient cleaning with the blood (Heb.13.20-21), IT IS GUARANTEED TO BRING FORTH FRUIT AND A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST!
Mark 4:26-29 KJV: And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; (27) And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. (28) For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. (29) But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
Just as it took 4000 years for the seed of God’s Word planted in the Garden of Eden to bring forth the harvest of one perfect Son: the Lord Jesus; so now in this 3rd. day (Lk. 13.32) after 2000 years the seed of God’s Word will bring forth in the earth a harvest of many perfect sons conformed to the image of Jesus!
Genesis 3:15 AMP: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel. [Gal. 4:4.]
Galatians 4:4-5 NIV: But when THE TIME HAD FULLY COME, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, (5) to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.
Luke 13:32 NKJV: And He said to them, “Go, tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.‘
Ephesians 4:11-13,15 KJV: And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (15) But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
