Final Thoughts on Sowing Seeds
God placed the harvest in the seed. Maybe we should say it this way, the seed is a container for the harvest. It might be better said that God created the perfect container for the harvest. As recent as December 2009 – Dumlupınar University 4000 year old seed was planted and germinated and September 2010 – El Batan, Mexico 500 year old seed was planted and produced wheat.
God created a container that bring forth a harvest after hundreds and even thousands of years. The container is so secure that to bring forth a harvest the seed has to die for the life in the seed to be released. Now if we will remember that His word is a seed.
Luk 8:11 KJV Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
In studying seeds you learn that God placed, food and nutrients inside the seed so that when the seed germinates it is self sustaining. God placed in His word the power to bring it self to past, so He reveals to us that His word will never return to Him without fulfilling His purpose for speaking the word. His Word is His self fulfilling Seed!
Isa 61:11 AMP For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
Isa 55:10-11 AMP For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [II Cor. 9:10.] 11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
God has empowered a seed to reproduce and bring forth a harvest that will contain seeds so that a greater harvest of seed will be produced. One apple seed can produce a harvest of multiplied thousands of apple seeds. In God system you plant one seed knowing that you will always receive a harvest many times greater than the one seed you planted. God promised us that as long as the earth remains we would have this system of seedtime and harvest.
Gen 8:22 KJV While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Jesus said that His Words are spirit and truth. In saying that His words are truth Jesus was saying that His Word will always be fulfilled as God our Father said in Isaiah chapter 55.
Joh 6:63 AMP It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.
Joh 17:17 KJV Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
