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.

If Only You Believe

posted by PrayerWarrior

We believe unto salvation. Because we believe then we receive the forgiveness of sins,and become reborn. A brand new slate for us who believe, that Jesus is Lord. That He was sent by God, that he was perfect,that He took our place and paid the price that we could never ever pay. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever {believes} in Him shall not parish but have ever lasting life. Believing what is it? it is faith,it is trust in God. It is a huge thing for us all. I will show you in this article how very important believing is.

We are told in one of my favorite verses that all things are possible to those who believe. Mark 9:23. The scenario is a father comes to Jesus and asks if you can would you please rid my son of the evil spirit within him that throws him on the ground and causes him to have seizures. I imagine Jesus incredulously looking at the father of the boy and asking, If I can? And then replying, all things are possible to those who believe. Then the father says to Jesus I believe, help my unbelief. So in other words, he thinks he believes, but then realizes he may not have that complete faith that is unwavering, so asks for help to believe.

We are allowed this as well. We who are His own, can ask for Him to help us to believe, that which we want more than anything to believe. We find in James 1:6-8 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. Many people say they do not believe in the power of the holy Spirit doing all the works and more that Jesus said we would do. I personally feel bad for these people they are living a life of lack, and really as it says here in James, cannot expect anything from the Lord.

Wow do you see that? Those who waver in belief, meaning they just cannot believe for some reason or another, wont receive anything. So now we have an answer as to why those people who do not believe in the power of the holy Spirit, to give us gifts of healing and prophecy and speaking in tongues, do not get those gifts themselves. One must believe to receive those gifts, and to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. Baptism means immersion Baptisma is the Greek word for it and it means immersion. Our English dictionary gives a loose translation. Saying immersion or sprinkling. Immersion in water is also baptism,but the gifts of the Holy Spirit only comes with immersion in the Holy Spirit. These, contrary to some peoples belief, are two different things.

Jesus said you must be born of water and spirit in John 3:5,6 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. This is very important obviously,for Jesus to say it. Paul, in Acts, 19:1-6 While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples 2 and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”3 So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?” “John’s baptism,” they replied. 4 Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” 5 On hearing this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.

Now the reason I was led to do this particular article was due to an argument or a debate 2 nights ago with two men, who insisted that they believe in the Holy Spirit but that there are no gifts given from this spirit in our time. I would like to say I was incredulous,but alas I have family who believes this way, and are also stuck under the law. They have no power in the Lord. They live lack luster lives devoted to working their tails off to be considered good enough to achieve eternity, and then claim they are not going to heaven due to their works. The law is not done away with but fulfilled. Meaning it is finished! There is no more to do to pay for your sins if you mess up. These people sadly do not understand that to live by the law one must also die by the law.

Paul in Romans 7 shows us the very weakness of the law. May I suggest everyone do an in depth study of Romans 6 and 7. It helps us to understand why it is we do not have to fight ourselves at all times to try and uphold the law. This link is a fabulous explanation of dying to the law, it is a very good explanation of Romans 6 and 7. http://www.enduringword.com/commentaries/4507.htm This is a whole other article though. I tell you the Lord had me going through, about 5 different articles I could do just off of this one subject,that leads to so many more possibilities.

At one point of the discussion about denying the power in the Holy Spirit, I brought up the verses in Matthew chapter 12:31,32. This says there is an unpardonable sin and that is the grieving of the Holy Spirit. These men, (and I have to laugh at them not even realizing what they are arguing here) said that this was being used by me in the wrong context ,that the men who were grieving the holy spirit were saying Jesus was possessed of demons and this was how He was able to cast out demons and heal the sick. But the argument from their point of view was that these gifts do not exist for us today the holy spirit does not do these gifts through us. After the apostles died the gifts were done away with.

To me they are doing the same thing as those pharisees! They are arguing against the holy spirit doing the healing and speaking in tongues through us, and doing all manner of miracles and signs and wonders. But my question then has to be, if it is not the holy Spirit doing these things through us, then who do they say it is, doing these miracles and signs? The correct conclusion has got to be satan. The men were telling me how Jesus was telling the pharisees how stupid and foolish their notion was that it could and or would be demons doing these things. I agree with Jesus,but I cannot understand how these men, who vehemently deny there is power in the Holy Spirit that works today, figure it is foolish for the pharisees but not for themselves to believe, any other than the holy Spirit, is doing these works that are purely and certainly of God!

It is because they do not believe, that they do not receive these gifts. Proverbs 23:7 as a man thinketh so does he. So in other words if a man, or woman for that matter, decides for themselves that there are no longer any gifts of the Holy Spirit, then they cannot receive those gifts. Let us look at the power of believing for so many during Jesus walk upon the earth. Matthew 8:13 Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way. Let it be done for you as you have Believed.” His servant was healed in that hour. Matthew 9:28 When he had come into the house, the blind men came to him. Jesus said to them, “Do you Believe that I am able to do this?” They told him, “Yes, Lord.”

See it was their very believing that reaped the benefits. They sowed belief and they received a great harvest for believing. Let’s go on! Matthew 21:22 and all — as much as ye may ask in the prayer, believing, ye shall receive.’ Oh dear now look at that! Out of the Lord’s own mouth. How do men mere men argue with the logic the truth coming from the Truth’s mouth? There is so much more. Mark 5:36 But Jesus, when he heard the message spoken, immediately said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Don’t be afraid, only Believe.”This last verse is talking about Jesus bringing the 12 yr old girl back to life. He knew they had to believe in order for Him to bring her back from the dead.

Let us go on. Mark 11:23 For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain,’Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and doesn’t doubt in his heart, but Believes that what he says is happening; he shall have whatever he says. This is another of my favorites. It is so very important to understand the things we can do as long as we believe. So yes those people those word of faith preachers, not only are they trying to get through to you that believing is the most important thing you can possibly do for yourself and for ministry. But they are also trying most often to get you to understand,if you do not have this kind of faith,you must go after it. You must seek it with all your heart mind and body. The Lord gives nothing to anyone,we must work for all of it. Faith is progressive it is not just given to you. Faith is enlarged and grown and stretched in trials and troubles and sickness and even in health.

I do not look down my nose at word of faith preachers. Instead I covet that kind of faith. Word of faith preachers are not sitting idly by, they are working for every ounce of whatever they have. They are not telling you wrong by saying you get what you believe for. They are telling you the truth. Jesus said Himself, whatever you believe without wavering, that you will receive. If your praying for and hoping for, let’s say healing of cancer,You had better have some serious unwavering faith. Because the moment you waiver in your believing for it,is the moment you have to start all over again. If you covet healing then you need to study faith and pray for faith and ask God to help you to believe. Then trust Him for that faith and that help,and trust Him, that what He says He will do for one, He will do for all!

I went to a wonderful church that blew me away when they did the offering prayer. The pastor said, I am not going to beg for your money and force you, for the Lord likes a cheerful giver. But more importantly, we believe that the Lord wants this church to prosper in all it’s ways, and therefore we believe the Lord will make sure we are funded and all our needs are met. Now that is a wonderful church! I have always believed if a church has to beg and make those in the church feel guilty about tithing, then something is just not right in the church. Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, all things whatever you pray and ask for, Believe that you have received them, and you shall have them. See the Lord goes on here in the same vein as the previous verse. It has to be very important to receive what you seek if he goes on and on about that very thing.

Mark 16:16 He who Believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who disBelieves will be condemned. Mark 16:17 These signs will accompany those who Believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages; Oh wow now wait a second!!! Jesus is not talking about the apostles, He says here, “those who Believe”! Did Jesus lie? Of course not! Let us not be ridiculous. Jesus did not lie, and He had to continue to equip the church to enlarge the Kingdom. We can, none of us, do anything on our own. It is only the Holy Spirit living in us that can do all of the things we do. I challenge any person, any one person in this world and or who reads this to tell me when and where does Jesus or the apostles say that the gifts will die with them?There is no such verse or conversation.

I want to look at what happens when people do not believe. First off we see in Mark 16:16 that he who disbelieves will be condemned! Then now let us look at Jesus in Nazareth as a man fully into His ministry,and what happens when the people disbelieve in Him and in the power He wields. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching. Mark 6:4-6 See He could do not mighty works. In the parallel verses in Matthew it states, 58And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

So though I know and believe with everything in me that God can and will do whatever miracles He wants to, when and where He chooses,will not, due to unbelief. As a man thinketh so is he, comes to mind. In this context though it is unbelief or negativity. Also Matthew 12:34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. So think about this too out of the abundance of your heart the mouth speaks. So the abundance in those hearts of those people, that refuse to believe in the very amazing and awesome power of the Holy Spirit, is unbelief.God is never changing, what is good for one person is good for another. God is no respecter of men,not even the apostles had anything more special than any man or woman in the world today.

Why would God give to them liberally all those lovely gifts and then all of the thousands upon thousands that came to Christ in the times of the apostles witness,but not us? we who are the body of Christ, with Christ being the head He has all that power. Think of it this way,our head which is attached to our body, has all our abilities in them. Our subconscious mind does all those things we do not have to tell our bodies to do, but to move our arms our legs, to speak, to look in any direction we must think about it,right? So with Christ being our head,and we all being His body, we have that power too. He gives it to us!

Every time I hear or see or read of someone saying oh that power died with the apostles,I cannot help but think of the verse in 2 Timothy 3:5,and I am using the living translation for this one,it says it so well. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! The KJV says it like this,Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. So why do we need to believe? It is so important to our very eternity to believe every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. People need to stop picking and choosing to believe what they want to believe and only that. God does not conform to your whims. Look at Romans 10:12 for there is no difference between Jew and Greek for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. let’s look at that last part of the verse rich unto all that call upon Him! So He gives the same to all, the same riches, are for every one who calls upon Him. How wonderful that news is!

And let’s look at Romans 10:8-10 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: 9 because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved: 10 for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.There it is again,our whole entire Christianity our eternity depends upon believing the Lord. If you do not believe in all of what He has to offer then you are losing out on so much! Your missing out on the very power that brought Jesus out of the grave alive! That power that conquered the grave lives inside of us. Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Christ from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his spirit that dwells in you. Amazing truths just amazing.

I pray for each of you that reads this that the Lord would stretch and grow your faith and that you will accept all truth about the Lord and His ways. I pray that you will live the abundant life Christ gave to us all freely,of His own will. it is the Lord’s will for us to all live lives full and wonderful and joyful and strengthened and powerful. If we deny the power of the Holy Spirit we deny truth,and our unbelief will in the end hurt us in so many ways.Believe brothers and sister Believe fully and completely in the truth,that is Jesus Christ.
Love in Christ Jesus,Tammy

Why I Evangelize The Way I Do

posted by PrayerWarrior

I do not feel the need to ever make someone come to the Lord through fear and burning. I could not would not lead someone to the Lord by telling them they are going straight to hell unless they repent and turn to the Lord. My way of evangelizing is simply through the witness of my life. I want people to be jealous and zealous for the Lord. Meaning I want them to come to the Lord because they are so jealous of what is inside me, and have to have that for themselves.

I want people to come to the Lord and want to serve Him zealously,with fire in their veins and in their heart. If one comes to the Lord only out of fear, without the Love of God, then I fear that they will adhere more to the law, than to have the Holy spirit, leading them teaching them, and bringing them along. We who have been Christians for a while, know that to follow the law in all of its form, is to stumble and fall. Then one feels that there is nothing but condemnation, and We know that there is no condemnation for those who love the Lord. Romans 8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. See walking after the spirit brings no condemnation,it does not say following the laws,it says following after the Spirit.

If your telling them that they must turn or they will burn in hell, what good is it doing them, or yourself? Some people think this is the only way to bring folks to the Lord, but I can tell you from experience, you bring more flies with honey, than you do with vinegar. I share how God has changed my life. I share how when I am going through tough times the Lord sees me through it. I share with them the blessings that come from walking after the Holy Spirit. I share uplifting verses that bring great peace to a hurting and or sorrowful heart.

Romans 11:14 if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them. Now Paul was talking to the gentiles about the Jews in this particular verse, but I feel we can use it too, to provoke people to jealousy, to want what we have. Which is peace and joy even in the midst of our hardest most trying times. Our witness should be always present no matter our circumstances. We should be praising God in the midst of our sorrow and tests and trials. Letting the world know that strength comes to us, through our sovereign, reining Lord. That His love is never ending, and even better for those who love Him back. God loves each and every person on this earth. He does not want us tearing people apart, and pointing out all of their wrong doings. No He wants to woo them and pursue them and show them His everlasting love.

Not long ago, during some of the hardest times I have had in my married life,the Lord had me speak to a friend who was broken and hurting to the very depths of her soul. During the times that she and I spoke, not once did the Lord give me one single condemning verse to share with her. He gave me every verse that would build her up, and strengthen her, and show her God’s absolute love for her. I am so happy to say that the Lord used me to bring this friend to him. God said Tammy I want her, the very first time we spoke, after about 25 years of not seeing one another. Then He gave me every word to speak into her life,to show her that yes God is there waiting for you to give it all to Him. Give Him your hurt your pain and sorrow. Show your loved ones, your friends,coworkers God’s love, not His wrath. The truth is God does not want to share His wrath with anyone other than satan.

I praise God for showing me that the world is full of hurting broken people and that He wants to turn broken into beautiful. Let us all bring the hurting aching, sorrow filled people to the Lord, with love and encouragement. No matter how tempting it may sometimes be to say to someone who has hurt us, oh your going to hell you rotten so and so. No instead shock and amaze those who hurt you, with love and understanding, compassion and a smile. Share with them the love of God. Understand that this is a hurting soul who is lashing out at you. If you cannot speak to them, then turn and walk away and pray for them.

Peter says do not pay back evil with evil. In 1st Peter 3:9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it. I don’t know about any of you but I know this, I want, nope, I need to be blessed, I need more to be a blessing to people, but most especially to my precious Lord. It does not say in John 3:16 to hell with you if you don’t believe, it says for God so loved the world (see that loved the world) that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him may not perish but have everlasting life. Let’s bring everyone we can to the Lord with great Love for that is what He is, Love.
Thanks for reading at my site, I love you all and thank the good Lord for you.
Tammy
