Good vs Evil – Bloodline Seed

Most people understand the concept of seeds. Plant seeds, get a harvest. Scripture identifies a variety of seeds and points out that seeds produce different types of “flesh”. Human seed produces human flesh. Animal’s seed produces animal flesh. But all seed, according to scripture, produces after its own kind, see Genesis 1.

Genetic engineering or genetic manipulation is where people take a seed and engineer or manipulate the seed to try and force the seed to produce something different than it does naturally. Another words, they try to force a seed to produce after a different kind.

But seed is not just applied to “things”. We learn from scripture, the word of God is called seed. So we pick up a book, the scriptures, and see a cover and a back and between those are many pages made of linen paper with words on those pages. But God calls that book, seed.

For the scriptures to be called “seed”, it must produce something. Just as all seeds produce something. So although we hold a “book” in our hands, we are actually holding seed in our hands that will produce something for us and in us. And that is what we are going to look at in this series of Good vs Evil.

We just looked at Abraham and the seed of Abraham. This means seed is attached to a bloodline. We said last time –

And even though Paul explains this and the seed of Abraham  in Romans, the seed is not fully explained until Galatians. And Paul elaborates on being an heir and heirs have inheritance.

Let me just say before we continue. Satan is a great deceiver and imitates Jesus to deceive people. So as a counterfeit, Satan has his seed too.

There are many types of seed mentioned in scripture. We are going to look at three main seeds: Good Seed, Word of God seed, and Bloodline seed. All three produce fruit. All three have a harvest. Why? Because seeds planted bring forth fruit after their own kind.

When we were discussing Abraham we were looking at the promises God gave to Abraham and his seed. This is a bloodline seed. And as believers in Christ Jesus our Lord, we see Jesus took on himself, Abraham’s seed. Remember, Abraham was justified by faith, not the law. So when Jesus took on himself Abraham’s seed, we are saved by grace through faith. Paul was explaining this to Jews in the book of Hebrews. We have emphasized a few words so you see a connection.

Hebrews 2:9-18 KJV  “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
[10] For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
[11] For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
[12] Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
[13] And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children  which God hath given me.
[14] Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
[15] And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
[16] For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
[17] Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
[18] For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour (deliver) them that are tempted.”

When we look at the bloodline seed we see this is based on, ” Whose your daddy?” Parents leave inheritance to their children, not strangers. What makes you think God wouldn’t do the same thing. Paul teaches us we are children of God through being born again of incorruptible seed, and God the  Holy Spirit confirms it which then makes us an heir, someone with an inheritance and God the Father becomes our Daddy.

Romans 8:14-19 KJV  “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
[15] For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
[16] The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
[17] And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him , that we may be also glorified together.
[18] For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
[19] For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.”

This makes us bloodline seed, an heir. An heir according to the promise Galatians 3:29 KJV  “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

And as an heir, Paul was explaining to Jews, all heirs have “ministering spirits who minister for them, not to them”

Hebrews 1:14 KJV  “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”

It is important that we understand the ministering “spirits” minister for us and not to us. Question: Who minsters to us? Correct. The Holy Spirit. So these angelic “spirits” we call angels, part of their job is to minister for us. Well what does that mean?  The key is the word minister.

Minister means to serve or attend to. To perform service. So these angelic spirits that we might call angels, are given to God’s children (bloodline) to serve or attend to us, believers, children of God. When is the last time you studied that for yourself, in the scriptures. Are you an heir of salvation? If yes, then you have ministering spirits, sent by God to you as his child, to serve or attend to you. And on top of that, God tells us that we, his children, are going to judge the angels.

1 Corinthians 6:2-3 KJV. “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
[3] Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”

This is all based on bloodline. And we will pick it up from here next time, Lord willing. Until next time.
