Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed.” – [Matthew 13:1-9]
Hi Everyone, welcome back!
In continuation of my previous post [The Sower’s Seed], where I talked about what the Sower’s seed is and represents in the Word of God. The seed planted in us by God through His Son Jesus Christ. God is love, and He has given us this love in the form of His Son, Jesus Christ. So, all those who come to Him must come showing love in them. Today, I’ll share with you, “The fruit that houses the sower’s seed and the church.”
The Fruit that houses the SEED…
God represented the resurrected church by the fruit of Mary’s womb, and in the fruit is the seed representing God’s love. This is the seed to germinate and produce more fruits of the same likeness as the first fruit – Discipleship.
This fruit of the womb of Mary will be called Immanuel, God is with us [Son of the Living God; Jesus Christ of Nazareth]. In this fruit is the seed of love, because He came from God and as a begotten Son of God, He shares the same attributes as the Father. He is love because God is love. The fruit will grow out of the seed plant [Mary, the virgin]. Out of Mary will come the Messiah, Jesus Christ, to save this world, so out of the religion will the faithful church of God be born.
As God pronounced in the Book of Genesis 3:14 through 16, He will make the snake and the woman hate each other; her offspring and that of the snake will always be enemies. The seed of the woman will crush the snake’s head, and the snake will bite the seed of the woman’s heel. Mary is germinating that seed, in her womb to produce the fruit, the one to establish the faithful church, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The one to crush the head of the snake. Of that seed plant, will emerge the new church of Christ, the Living God, and this church will be founded on love.
Mary is harboring the faithful church in her, and at the right time in her life, it will be revealed to us. God planted a seed in her to be manifested later in her life, and this seed has forever been hidden in God’s word. The faithful church has all along being in the womb of Mary, the Virgin. She walked around, harboring the seed in her. The seed has to germinate and produce the fruit required, but this seed is being rejected by the world. This word of love is being rejected both by the church and the world.
What is the word that the church wants to hear? The church today is laboring for God’s word, but His word is not in their hearts. Love does not exist in the church. The church has exchanged the love of God for the love of the world, which is hatred. The seed that God nurtured is to bring you out of your depressive state. Instead, you opted for the love of the world. This is God’s message to you, if you live by His word and His word lives in you, He will establish His will in you.
God led “the fruit” in its path to grow to maturity (nine months) and delivered it to us to eat (Matthew 26:26) and replant its seed -discipleship.
The “fruit” is the new church based on love, and this love is hidden in God’s word and will grow out of His word. Mary is pregnant with the Word of God. She is carrying in her womb the fruit housing the seed of God.
Who is Mary, or what does she represent?
Mary represents the religion you are observing at the moment. She is the old-time religion. Out of her will come the faithful one – the faithful church that will worship God to the end. The church, which was talked about in the Book of Revelation chapter 3, verses 7-12.
The fruit is to bring prosperity to us. It is to elevate us from our troubles and bring us peace. This fruit is our life. He is to bring us the freedom that we deserve. He is the Son of the Most High God. In this fruit is a seed, the seed of our salvation. The seed to crush the head of the serpent.
In references to the judgment that the LORD God pronounced on the Serpent in Genesis:
15 I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head, and you will bite her offspring’s heel.” (GNB)
In botany, fruits are how certain plants disseminate seeds.
The fruit is Jesus Christ, and in him is love, the seed to be planted in each one of us. He is the seed of the woman to bruise the head of the snake. He is the seed to rule the world.
…And he will be our ruler.
Jesus came to plant the seed of love in us. He carries in him the love of God, and this love is to be shared among us. He is the resurrection and the life; nothing exists before him.
This love breaks all boundaries of Christianity and the world. It will bring people of all races and diversity together in Jesus’ name, and change the church and the world. This word of love at the moment is being rejected by the church and the world. The very church to preach this love message to the world is rejecting this love that comes with pain. As the word of God has said, it is this love that will bring unity in the church and peace to the uncertain world
The Seed & the Church…
The seed is to create the faithful church by ministering to its heart the love of God. Jesus Christ is the fruit carrying this seed of love in Him. Let Him be the center of your focus. The fruit is to plant the seed of love in our hearts for us to love the same way as God does. It is to reincarnate the love of God in us. And through this re-incarnation, we will develop the love of God in His church and in us. The faithful church will be based on the love of God – Kingdom building through the Word of God, Jesus.
This word of God, which Jesus stands for, will supersede all other words and will bring salvation to this world. The Kingdom of God will be established through this word of love – a chain reaction.
Our LORD God came into this world in the flesh as Jesus, to give us the love that He is. The LORD teaches us his love through the incarnation of himself. He plants His word in our hearts for it to grow in us and change our hearts.
Matthew 22: 36-37
36 “Teacher,” he asked, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and the most important commandment.
39 The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself.’
34 And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.”
This is the secret of the word of God, the love Commandment.
The Lord reaches to us through His word of love. We are blessed to have Him as our Saviour. Love exists among us but does not live in our hearts. The work of the Lord is to bring this love in our hearts. He is to plant his love in us, creating a nation of love as you accept Him as your Saviour.
Out of this fruit is the seed of love that mankind needs in the Lord.
Out of this fruit is the resurrection.
He plants the seed of love in us to nourish, germinate, and keep it reproducing the exact image of God (fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23). This is where we become His disciples in the field, cultivating the vineyards, not when we are full of hatred.
The church must carry on scattering this seed of LOVE. It is to spread the word of God, as it serves as food for our souls. The faithful church is the generation to come; love amid trouble. Love spreads through pain like a spot of ink in water, it spreads evenly and cautiously.
Let the seed fall on good soil!
The faithful church is the Church of God because it lives its life on love. Love around the world, leaving no one out. Love one another – that is God’s church in the Kingdom to come.
Teach love to your children and grandchildren, so that they can spread it on.
Live the love revolution!Tweet
Let the word speak for you!
It is this seed of love that will crush the head of the serpent and bring normality to this world of confusion.Tweet
The “fruit” of the Spirit
…35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and God’s power will rest upon you. For this reason the holy child will be called the Son of God.
…22 But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 humility, and self-control. There is no law against such things as these.
These are the seeds God wants to plant in you through His word – the resurrected word of the LORD. The structure of fruit often helps the dispersal of its seeds, and the church is the body of this fruit. In this case, the method of dispersion is through discipleship.
13 They are like trees planted in the house of the LORD that flourish in the Temple of our God, 14 that still bear fruit in old age and are always green and strong.
12 You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you. 14 And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in perfect unity. 15 The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make; for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful. 16 Christ’s message in all its richness must live in your hearts…
Change in this world is needed. And, the church is in an excellent position to bring this change through the love of God.
Love one another!Tweet
Do not be the JUDGE of your neighbor, just LOVE them regardless!Tweet
Judgment is in the hands of the LORD, not Man!Tweet
I pray that your heart be receptive and receive God’s love in good faith. May you be an advocate of His love. And may the love of God change your heart and bring you peace.
