From the very beginning, when God had it in mind to bring forth a creation, the heavens and the earth, it was in His heart to make for Himself a man. This man was to come forth with but one purpose, the purpose, a destiny of ruling over the earth with God, because this man was to subdue it. “Subdue”, a word meaning, “to bring under subjection; to conquer; vanquish or defeat all opposing forces in battle”. Who were the opposing forces that needed subdued? Could they not have been the fallen enemy of God that brought the created earth into a place where darkness dwelt over it? Gen. 1:2 states, “The earth became without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”. In the phrase, “the earth was without form”, as written in the King James Bible, it should have been “the earth became without form”. “Without form” means “waste”, that which the earth had become because an enemy had rebelled against God. This is likening into the parable concerning the “wheat and tares”, where God reveals the enemy of God as the one planting the tares. Matt. 13:25, “but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way”.
Our attention then is drawn to another truth in this same verse of Gen. 1:2 by stating, “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”. In this a process had it’s beginning, which continues on down through the ages of time to finally bring forth God’s new creation man as we are now beginning to see his fullness appear in the earth. This new man is even now appearing, an appearance that is taking place during the last of “the last days”. This same Spirit, which moved in Genesis, continues to move among the hearts of a people today, as they are now ready to walk with God, completely and totally, in this same Spirit. Rom. 8:5, 9, 14 states, “For those who live according to the flesh are minding the things of the flesh; but those who live according to Spirit, things of the Spirit. … But you are not sensual, but spiritual, because the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone possesses not the Spirit of Christ, he is not of him. … Because as many as are guided by God’s Spirit, these are the sons of God”.
In the beginning, as the Spirit of God moved upon the earth to renew it, a law of God, an eternal order of existence was set into motion in the process of this new creation. The law or order was, “every seed, from vegetation, the beast of the field, the fowls of the air and man was “a seed” that was to “bring forth after its kind”. This law of reproduction continued throughout the ages, until a time would come when “that seed of God”, placed as Christ the son of man became “the seed” to “bring forth after His kind” in birthing a harvest in the earth. This harvest would be first; a “first-fruits” harvest of “sons” birthed to gather in a greater harvest, the bride and then destined to become the kingdom of God filling the earth. Has not this law of the “seed” continued on, all around us, as we observe the world in which we live? According to the fruitfulness of the law of the “seed”, producing after its kind, the enemy of God stands in fear, knowing that this promised “seed” should bruise his head. This enemy, to be completely eradicated from the earth, because of the authority and power of the “seed”, the Christ, who brings forth “after His kind”. With this enemy, working through the carnal fleshly mind of man, standing in fear, he as a roaring lion seeks to destroy this “seed”. 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; your opponent, the enemy, like a roaring lion is walking about, seeking to devour”. Therefore, saints, beware of the deceptive methods used by this enemy as he uses half-truths in a form called religion to destroy the life of God that dwells within the believer.
Let us now consider our natural birthing and the time and season into which we came forth. What is it that we observe? Can we not see the progressive evidence of decay in every part of our world? Note the family units, the education system, the economical system, the political systems and notice especially the decay that touches the religious community, that which many call the church. What we are truly seeing is that which 2 Tim. 3:13 states as, “But evil men and imposters will make progress for the worse, deceiving and being deceived”. In this, we receive a warning that we might prepare ourselves before God and arm ourselves to take our stand against this enemy. In this, we can guard ourselves against the wiles of the enemy that would seek to conquer us. Col. 2:8, “Take care that no one make a prey of you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ”. In this, it seems as if the Christian Community is foremost, because of knowledge heard, in allowing themselves to compromise the righteous way of living, which comes from walking in the truth as Christ is in the truth. While the worlds moral standards are becoming less and less a part of any type of righteousness, could it be that this failure has become so rampant because the church has allowed itself to compromise, for the sake of living unto self. It has doctrines of compromise that have weakened its standards of authority and power to become a weakened group of persons with empty words. Is this not a standard of disobedience? Eph. 5:6 says, “Let no one deceive you with empty words; for on account of these things the wrath of God comes on the sons of disobedience”.
Again, let us consider the law of the “seed”. This is an order of life that reproduces itself after the order that God has purposed for each seed of life. In receiving the “Christ seed” within, has the Christian community found itself aborting this “seed” of the Son before a birth can take place? Is this what released the freedom of abortion into the world? The word of God has made it plain unto those who desire to know the truth, that God’s purpose is to bring forth children liken into that first born son called Jesus, thus, a like-kind people to be the heirs and co-heirs with Christ Jesus. Rom. 8:17 states, “And if children, also heirs; heirs, indeed, of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if indeed, we suffer together, so that we may be glorified together”. Remember at the birth of Jesus all the babies in the surrounding area, from two years of age and under were slain. What is happening among us today, when the time for the harvest of the first-born “seed”, the joint-heirs, has come? Are there not laws passed, the world over, which are legally aborting many of a generation of babies? From the abortion of these babies, the enemy of God seeks to destroy the “seed” of the promised bruiser of the serpents’ head, before maturity comes to the sons to crush his head.
Let us also consider Israel during a time when there was no widespread revelation upon the land because of like-kind moral and righteousness decay as we see it around us today. During this time of moral relapse, there was one, a boy called Samuel, who God raised up to bring forth judgment. 1 Sam. 3:1, “Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation”. Is it not a fact that a large portion of the Christian Community has compromised to accept the life-style of abortion and alternate live-styles as presented to them by the world at large? In being deceived to accept such an order of living, they find themselves living in the darkness of deceit and vain philosophies. They are selling themselves out to the empty words that proceed from the political and religious mouths of this day, which removes any revelation from a God of truth. With God’s glory, having departed in Samuel’s time of judging Israel, likewise today the glory of God is departing from religious groups and nations as they revert and submit themselves to the darkness that moves this carnal world.
In this present day of rebellion and darkness there is a prevailing evil force in the world, but unto a hearing people, there remains a promise. A promise, that God would have a “seed” for Himself, a “seed”, placed within the earth, under the law of the “seed”’, the law of bringing forth “after it’s own kind”. (Read Isa. Chapters 53 & 54) while considering verse 53:10 which declares, “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When you make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the labor of His soul and be satisfied. By His knowledge my righteous Servant shall justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities”. This “seed” planted continues to germinate and it shall bring forth as the necessary inner changes are made to bring forth the time of its appearing. This “seed”, bringing forth “after its own kind”, shall manifest itself as the children mature unto a time of the birthing of God’s man-child. This birth is speaking of the in-Christed one who is the head and body, God’s sons. I Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen race, a Royal Priesthood, a Holy Nation, a people for a purpose; that you may declare the perfections of Him who called you from darkness into His wonderful light”. This is declaring the fulfillment of the “seed” which is a “seed” that shall bring forth “after its own kind”. Therefore, we are to beware of those who have a form of Godliness but are denying the power thereof. This purposed power of God will bring forth a new created people, a new creation man, who, in making an appearance shall establish the kingdom of God in and on all the earth.
