YOU’RE GOD’S SEED
(God’s Word—The Seed Of Divine Life)
TO THE BIBLE 1 Peter 1:22-23
“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.”
The Bible declares that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. That’s really significant because the life of a human being comes from the man, and not from the woman. However, the body of a human being comes from the woman. It’s therefore something extraordinary for Jesus to be born of a virgin. Where did His life come from? It came from the Word.
The angel brought Words from God to the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:35). She believed and received the Word (the seed of God), and the Holy Spirit came upon her to conceive the child without the agency of the seed of man. The Word that God spoke to her formed the seed in her. The Word of God is the seed of God (Luke 8:11); that’s the seed of divine life, just as the life of an orange tree is in that little orange seed! When you receive God’s Word, you receive the life of whatever it talks about; whatever you’re hearing from God is the seed to produce in you, or for you, what it talks about.
For example, when we preach and teach divine healing, the hearer receives the seed of healing and it produces healing and health. Likewise, when we teach God’s Word on the subject of finances, it produces the seed of financial blessings and miracles. That’s the power of God’s Word! Christianity is no religion. Jesus Christ was the Word of God made flesh (John 1:14).
We also were born again by the same seed (Word). That’s what we read in our opening verse. You have the same life as God Himself because you’re born of the Word—God’s indestructible seed (1 Peter 1:23). You’re not born of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God (John 1:13). This is what makes your origin divine.
And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.
The Word Becomes Flesh
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
I’m born of the Word and Spirit of the Lord, therefore, I’m impregnable to anything that hurts or binds, because I hail from God! I’ve overcome the devil and his cohorts of darkness, for the greater One dwells in me! I have the nature of God; I’m more than a conqueror; I’m an associate of the God-kind, and I’m living triumphantly every day, through Christ Jesus.
