Secret of the seed

By Pastor Ronald Vote
Wallace Bible Fellowship

I love seed planting time and harvest–putting the seeds in the ground, watching them grow and then harvesting. After a farmer sows the seed, the seed comes to life, that miracle of life is within the seed.
Each and every seed contains a mini computer containing each plant’s DNA with distinguishing traits of that plant’s growth. Yes, the secret is in the seed!
Jesus spoke using parables or illustrations of nature. John 3:12, “If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, then how shall you believe if I tell you heavenly things?”
In Genesis 3:15, God mentions the seed of the woman that would ultimately crush Satan’s head. That promised seed is Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me.” Not Peter, not the priest, not the pope, not the pastor, not the church, not your good works, just Jesus!
When Christ died on the cross, He bore our sins, past, present, and future. When our judgment was placed on Christ, Jesus cried out, ‘It is finished!’                          
2 Corinthians 5:21, “For He hath made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” NKJV. I Timothy 2:5, 6, “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
Jesus fulfilled the law and the office of the priesthood by his own sacrifice. He is called the Lamb of God. A priest needed a place of sacrifice as well as the sacrifice. Jesus Christ died on the cross, His altar of sacrifice. We need no other priest.
Will you believe and receive the seed of the woman, Jesus Christ? He is the only way to heaven, our Savior. I Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which lives and abides forever.”
Remember, life is in the seed, the seed of the woman, Jesus Christ!
