Every Seed After Its Own Kind

posted by PrayerWarrior

Let’s talk about every seed after it’s own kind. The other day while speaking to a very nice, albeit deceived individual, about Christ being God, The Lord said very quietly, every seed after its kind! So I began to study this subject a little more in depth. Let’s go back to Genesis and move forward from there into our times here and now, the time of AD.

Genesis 1:11-12 KJV 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. See here how every animal after it’s kind? See how every seed of it’s kind? They can only recreate themselves, nothing when added together can make a different species altogether unless you get into Gene splicing then you are playing God and this cannot be done!

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Every living creature after its own kind!

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Now God made man after His own Image, but notice how He did not say He took and made man by His own seed? He made mankind in His own image, not by His seed, and we will see something else here that becomes important as we read on. After the fall God said Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Notice the Lord is talking about the virgin who will be with child? It does not say that about the virgin but of her seed He shall bruise the head of satan.

I want to show a bit more about the seed, so let’s go on over to Gen 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another {seed} instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. Man’s seed, Adam’s seed was born into sin, but God’s seed planted into the virgin was not a man of Adamic fashion, but God’s own seed.

If every seed is created to bear seed of it’s kind, and recreate itself to it’s own kind, then God’s seed must according to God’s word and own swearing by Himself, create God. This is why when Jesus claimed to he and the Father are one, the Pharisees picked up stones to kill Him. {John 10:31} Prompting Jesus to ask for what of my miracles and wonders and good deeds do you kill me? They proclaimed not for these things but for saying you are God which is blaspheme!

The pharisees understood that Jesus was claiming to be God, because He is the only son of God ever made. He was seed of God’s seed, and no man had part in creating Jesus in the womb of the virgin. Thus they wanted to kill Him. Also Jesus saying that He was I am, those also showed the pharisees He was indeed claiming to be God. For I am is whom Moses proclaimed, told him to go out and lead God’s captives free out of Egypt. Jesus was known before he was born. He was known to be the son of God the son being of God’s seed and every seed of it’s own kind produces it’s own kind.

1 Cor 15:36-39 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

Now those verses previous, they make us go to another thing altogether and I will explain how my brain jumps to this area of bible study. That is the death of the seed, in order that life may come from it. The seed must go in the ground and die, it will come alive in a whole different form, than previously formed. So also shall we die, in baptism, and raise up out of the death to self and our old ways, and be raised up new in Christ Jesus!Then we can truly say it is no longer i who lives but Christ who lives in me and through me. Gal 2:20

We like the plant’s and like the Lord, when He died as a man, was raised up into a new man, one whose life is eternal, immortal is what He now is, and will make us one day! Only though if we die to self and the life of an earth dweller, who is only sinful all of the time. We instead when we come out of the death of baptism into the resurrected life of Christ, now live as righteous holy people. We then are called the righteousness of God through Christ.

These are all bible verses, I just am not naming them all, as i hope to prompt others to be more curious, so as to go and study this all for themselves. The Lord writing His word upon the tablet of our hearts, is good and a needful thing. We all need to be praying toward this end that he writes the word upon our hearts that we may know it and have the answers needed for people to come to know the Lord.

We are to go out into the world and make disciples of the whole world. Making them the same kind of seed we are as well, and that is now the children of God, through Christ. Christ is God in man form and there is plenty in the Old and new Testaments to make us know that indeed Christ was preached and prophesied about all through the whole word of God.

He gave me to know without question, that He Christ is indeed God as He was not born of man’s seed but of God’s seed which God can and would only make a God. Jesus was with Him and was the word, and was indeed God, John 1:1, it does not say like God, It says He was God, how does God then stop being God? Because He became flesh? He clothed Himself with mankind, for He is spirit, as a Spirit that cannot be looked upon God would then have to remedy that, so that He could come and be face to face with mankind, He had to separate Himself turning Himself into seed, but still maintaining every part of everything, He had to keep Himself in the heavens as well.

God is more than we could ever imagine, and just because people have issues with understanding the Infiniteness of God, does not change the fact that God put Himself here as a man, so that he could live a sin free perfect life, and die a spotless, sinless perfect lamb of God, to free us from the bondage of sin, and make us whole through himself, bringing us back to a right relationship with Him, such as was before the fall of Adam and Eve.

Through Christ we become new creatures. Brand new as though we were just born. ALL of our past sins, no matter what they were, even marriage and divorce, are wiped away. Dead men have no sin. Dead men are incapable of sin. But if you turn back to your sinful life, then you have lost all of your salvation. God would never take your salvation away from you, you choose to give it up! We do not give up free will when we become Christs, it is a conscious effort every day to give ourselves up, and instead walk in God’s will and ways for us.

If you detach yourself from the vine you are then dead. You will not wither immediately, but will instead wither slowly until you can no longer be recognized by the brethren as one of the brethren. I have seen many preachers these days who began good, but then were wooed away from truth by money. Now they speak lies to tickle ears so that people will pay them well and they can have an amazing life right here on earth. But the Lord says they have their rewards on earth and there are none for them in eternity.

Pick up your cross and follow me was said even before He went to the Cross, in Luke 9:23. We must deny ourselves. We must die to all selfish thoughts desires, and actions. We must deny ourselves and proclaim Him. We must bring Him honor and glory. This life is not about us, our hopes dreams, will and ways, for those are only evil all of the time. We must follow after Christ, we must listen to Him only. My sheep know my voice and they follow me, and I know them.

I always hear people say I feel, I think, I know, I want, it is not about our thoughts feelings or anything else, it is all about our love of Him, to the exclusion of everyone and everything else, and the love of others to not care how we will be persecuted for our witness of Him. It is all about our witness to Him and of Him. We will be persecuted one way or another so be Bold and speak about the seed dying and being born anew. Speak about Him and his will and ways. Warn people in and out of season. Be prepared to tell of him and suffer for it.

Most of all Die you seed, and be turned into a tree who is loaded with good fruit! Don’t despise the pruning, which makes us fruitful, and multiplies those of the same kind. When it hurts it means it is for our good! We work together, as is shown here in Corinthians.

1 Cor 3:6-8 I planted the seed and Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one in purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.

The Day Of The Lord, What Is It ? Part 1

posted by PrayerWarrior

So many people find themselves believing that the day of the Lord is different from the day of the rapture. But they are one and the same. There is biblically only one return of Jesus, one second coming. One plus one do not make three, and nowhere in the word do we find this secret coming of the Lord for His bride. When the bride groom comes for his bride, it is always with much fanfare. There will be no difference when Christ comes for His bride. It will be preceded by a Trumpet blast and a loud shout from the archangel.

 

I know what your thinking you who find it hard to understand that God would have you go through trials and tribulations. The verse your thinking of is the one about the thief in the knight. 1Thess 5:2 and also 2Peter 3:10 both state the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night. So now let us examine that. We know the day of the Lord is also called the last day. How do people equate this verse with a pre tribulation rapture?

 

There are 35 books of the bible that speak of this day, the day of the Lord. It is the most important topic of prophecies. It is the most talked about of all prophecies through the prophets. The day of the Lords revenge. Yet our churches barely ever, if ever touch on this subject. The reason being that people only ever want to hear the good stuff. They do not want to hear that there is punishment, and pastors of this day and age are only too willing to comply.

 

Now the next and probably bigger reason why the Day of the Lord is not preached is because it conflicts with the pre- and mid-tribulation rapture views.  That is because the Rapture happens after the great tribulation and on the Last Day of this Age…which is the Day of the Lord!  Jesus, our Lord and Savior, says this in His conversation of the end-times in Matthew 24…that He will come after the tribulation and on the Last Day of this Age.   He says in verses 21- 31: “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

 

Then if any man shall say to you, ‘Look, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.  For there shall arise false christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Behold, I have told you before.   Therefore if they shall say to you, ‘Look, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.  For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For wherever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

 

Read very carefully as Jesus continues, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

 

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet [same trumpet of 1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Thes. 4:16,17 and Rev. 11:15-18 where the seventh angel sounded the seventh and last trumpet], and they shall gather together his elect [the Rapture] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”  Here is the order of events from Jesus in Mt. 24 –  greatest tribulation ever , then the heavenly signs of Joel and Peter (and the rest of the prophets), then His coming in the clouds, then the last trumpet, then the Rapture on the Last Day which is the Day of the Lord.

 

I want to give you a better understanding of this, so let’s go into another explanation and this is the first resurrection. Compared to the last. This is a much longer part. The whole reason I have to break this down is because it is going to be a huge article, and I do not want to bore you or lose you. So after this section I will end this one, and post it and go on to the next part.The next part will list all the verses or as many as I can possibly find that speak of the day of the Lord. Also above I did not mention Revelation chapter 14 but it is a huge huge part, of understanding the rapture is a last day rapture. We see the rapture in chapter 14.

 

Daniel realized in his vision in Daniel 12:2 that “many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt”, only he did not receive details on it.  Paul told us in Acts 24:15 “that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust”, only he didn’t know it was two different resurrections.  Jesus talked about two resurrections in John 5:28-29 when he said, “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his [i.e. the Son of Man] voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation”, only He did not tell us that there was a time span between the two and how long it was.

 

But thank God for John’s revelation by vision where he is told definitely that there are two resurrections separated by 1000 years in Rev. 20:1- “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

 

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: 4 and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.  5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.  This is the first resurrection.  6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.   7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison.”

 

Some people believe the “second death” is an allusion to annihilation, but this is not the case as we shall see.  Even though the phrase “second resurrection” does not appear in this passage, it is obvious that if there is a first resurrection, there must be at least one other resurrection, or “first”, misleads us to a wrong conclusion.  The second resurrection is rather referred to as the “second death” instead to reflect its nature as being unto death rather than to life.  If it were only eternal unconsciousness or annihilation, there would be no need to have a resurrection of the body just to destroy it totally and instantaneously, and there would be no such thing as a first resurrection!

 

Furthermore, in Rev.19:20, 20:7, 10 we read, “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who performed miracles before him, with which he deceived them who had received the mark of the beast, and those who worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone…And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison…And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”  We discover, that after 1000 years of being tormented in the lake of fire, the beast and false prophet are still being “tormented day and night for ever and ever”!  So much for any annihilation views!

 

Rev. 20:11-15 goes on to say that at the conclusion of the thousand years those not in the Book of Life were cast into the lake of fire which is the “second death”.  No wonder that “blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection” in verse 6!The Word of God makes it clear that the Rapture can not be a pre-trib event.  Here’s how it does.  Pre-trib Christians will say that there is a resurrection of the saved at the start of the 7 years and a resurrection of those saved during the 7 years at the end of the 7 years, but the Word says there is only ONE First Resurrection unto eternal life, for if there were more than one resurrection unto eternal life , then the Second Resurrection would not be unto eternal death!

 

And if there is only ONE First Resurrection, 1 Thes. 4:16 tells us when it will be: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.  17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.””The dead in Christ shall rise first” is the First Resurrection, and “then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up” is the Rapture.  Do you see it?  The dead rise; then the living are caught up.  First is Resurrection, then is the Rapture.

 

Now Rev. 20:4 says, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”Those who were killed through the Tribulation were raised in the First Resurrection to reign a thousand years.  So they had to be raised after the last Tribulation saints were murdered.  Now if the Rapture, according to 1Thes. 4:16,17, follows the Resurrection, then we have undeniable proof that the Rapture necessarily has to follow the First Resurrection after the death of the last Tribulation martyr has been murdered!  What could be simpler.

 

Just as no one knew that almost 5 centuries of time came between Daniel’s 1st and 69th weeks (of years) in Dan. 9:24-27 and maybe some 20 centuries between the 69th and 70th, so no one knew before John’s vision that one thousand years would come between the First Resurrection (of the “just” and “good”) and the Second Resurrection (of the “unjust” and “evil”).

 

The serious end-time student should be able to read between the lines when the point is made here.  Look at I Cor. 15:20-28 – “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the first fruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. [1000 thousand year break here] Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

 

For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.   For he has put all things under his feet. But when he says all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.   And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.”

Some confusion has come into the minds of some people because they didn’t see a break in time between verses 23 and 24 where the two sections necessarily deal with events on both sides of a period of reign…and Rev. 20 tells us that Christ and the redeemed reign for 1000 years, rebellion is done away at the end of the 1000 years, death is done away with, and gives the details of this period of reign and who will reign with Him and the duration of that reign!

 

2 Peter 3:7-13 – “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  [could this preceding verse be alluding twice to the thousand years and it connecting with one day – the Day of the Lord?]

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night [1000 year break] in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

 

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God [1000 year break repeated again in this summary], wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.”   Again, note that according to Rev. 20:7-11, fire coming down upon the earth from heaven, the old earth fleeing away happen after the 1000 years are over.

 

Hopefully, enough has been said to show that the Day of the Lord occurs at the end of the Age. It is a time to judge the world, for God to contend with the nations and for the Lord Jesus Christ to come, take up His rule along with the saints of God. For the Millennial earth to glorify God in the way He intended it back in the beginning before sin came into the world, through Adam and Eve. Part two follows this one. God Bless and watch over you all  in all ways. In Christ Jesus, Tammy
