UNDERSTANDING THE SEED AND THE FRUIT.
A seed is a dictator to it fruits. A seed has the capacity to stand on it own for governance. Life consist in the seed. A seed has a higher life that it can give to it fruit. Every fruits live according to the life the seed offers. Fruit follow after the life that produce it. Fruit are not higher than the seed, they are under the command of the seed that produce them. A seed is always at its best when it dies. For this is the peak of it production for another life and operating through what it produce, that is, the fruit.
Man is a man of seed. All in the world is born of a seed, Bible makes it clear of the incorruptible seed and the corruptible seed.
1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
So if there is incorruptible seed, there is also a corruptible seed. Seed is a life. Every seed offer their own life according to the life they have. When you abide in the incorruptible seed you remain incorruptible. When you abide in the corruptible seed you remain corruptible. You cannot jump by living the other life. The incorruptible seed offers a life that is incorruptible by the word of God. The corruptible seed offers a life that is corruptible in their wise which is death. The life in the incorruptible seed will make a man to obey the Lord or yield to obedience easily but the seed of the corruptible will make a man to walk in rebellion even against God. Every fruit walk in a contrary way to that which do not begot it. The life in a seed is always in a match to make it fruit come to what it is. Every fruit follow their own nature of seed.
Man is the fruit. For a fruit to bear another life not responding to the life it has, it must give away it life. This is not to produce another fruit but to be taken away from the very nature of that seed for another. Every seed has power over its fruit. Every man on earth is born of the corruptible seed but when any man gives his life up to be taken away by another seed, he bears the incorruptible seed. The order of a fruit can be changed. This is how it happens. To come to that incorruptible seed such must give up himself by confessing the Lordship of Jesus Christ. When this happens a transfer has been done or a translation has occurred.
Colossians 1:13 WHO HATH DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS, and hath TRANSLATED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON:
Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and TRANSFERRED US into the Kingdom of his dear Son, (NLT)
Seeds have a life they offer to their fruits. You live your life based on the seed that produce you, either, corruptible seed or the incorruptible seed of the word of God. Man is a fruit of either of the two, no neutral ground, we all have our seed that bear us, either the corruptible seed or the incorruptible seed of the word of life.
Clearly defined, the corruptible seed is of the devil-the god of this world, the incorruptible seed of the word of God is the Lord Jesus Christ even of His Spirit. If you understand this, you will know who to serve. You’re a servant to the seed that you obey. Every fruit yield to their seed.
Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to WHOM ye YIELD YOURSELVES SERVANTS TO OBEY, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Every of our response tells the life we have, the seed we obey. The incorruptible seed can make you obey the Lord. The incorruptible seed will make you hate what the Lord hate.
The corruptible seed can give life, the incorruptible seed also gives life. Remember they have power to do so.
The devil has something to give, a life, but it is death.
Matthew 4:8 Again, THE DEVIL taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
4:9 And saith unto him, All these things WILL I GIVE THEE, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Remember we said fruit can come under a seed by given up to another seed. If Jesus had given up to the devil by worshiping the devil, He would have come under another seed. Worship means to give up to something higher. But glory to God, He acted contrary to the seed that did not begot Him. Remember He was the begotten Son of God, then he later became the first begotten because, we were begotten with Him by the death of Jesus even to the Father. So He’s no longer the only begotten Son, He is now the First begotten Son and we are begotten with Him.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and THE FIRST BEGOTTEN of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath BEGOTTEN US AGAIN UNTO A LIVELY HOPE BY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD,
The incorruptible seed offers you His own very life. He gives it. Every seed has power to give life to its fruit.
John 17:2 As thou hast given him POWER over all flesh, THAT HE SHOULD GIVE ETERNAL LIFE to as many as thou hast given him.
John 5:26 For as the FATHER hath LIFE in HIMSELF; SO HATH HE GIVEN TO THE SON TO HAVE LIFE IN HIMSELF;
So you see a given of life to fruit. That’s what Jesus did to us too. The Father gives Him life, so the Father empowers Him to also give us life. Life flows in the flow of life to life in the incorruptible seed. But in the corruptible is always a flow of death to a flow of death. That’s why a husband that has life will cause that life to flow to his wife through fellowship and they will also allow it to flow to their children. This is true also of a man that has no life flowing in him. The incorruptible seed is being in the Kingdom of His Dear Son, but the corruptible seed is being in the power of darkness, the devil, the prince of the air, but we have been quickened from that life.
Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that NOW WORKETH IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE:
2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were BY NATURE THE CHILDREN OF WRATH, even as others.
You noticed the word:
>Course of this world. It is that seed that gives life to us then, when we were not born of God. It gives direction. That’s what seed do. They give direction to their fruits.
>According to the prince of the power of the air. It’s that seed the corruptible seed.
>The Spirit that NOW works in the children of disobedience. So it gives them the life of the corruptible seed. The devil never obeyed God, he is rebellious. So it works, it exact it’s power on it fruit.
>Fulfilling the desires of the flesh. Is because a fruit fulfil the desires of the seed they belong to.
>By nature the children of wrath. That nature was given by the seed.
For man to escape this. There is a need for the mercy of God’s love, of which He has already provided.
The incorruptible seed cause an interaction of life to it fruit. You can respond to God today. You can come to that life today, if you’re not in Christ Jesus. For believers, God’s life dwells in you. You’re of God. The incorruptible seed is what a believer is born of, and they respond to it. Live a contrary life to that seed that did not begot you. You’re born of God. Walk with God. Walk according to the seed of God in you. The seed produce obedience. That’s why Jesus obeyed God throughout. You can also. I can also. We can as the body of Christ. We are of the incorruptible seed of the word of God. God bless you.
