YOUR SEED and HER SEED
BY: KEVIN C. BLACKER, SR.
Man has always tried to lay claim to the importance of his seed, name, and heritage. It has been said, “What is in a name (nature/character)?” The natural (carnal) man has endeavored to keep his seed pure by only marrying his kind. Some will only allow their children to marry into certain families. In order to create a master race, Hitler went as far as to exterminate not only the Jews, but also the weak of body and mind, including the Germans. He has not been alone. Genocide is still taking place around the world, where one seed (people) sees the need to destroy another. This has been going on since the Garden of Eden. (Gen 4) Even still today men are trying to lay claim to a righteous seed.
God used the natural seed of Abraham to be a people led of the Spirit and to show forth His Glory in the earth. Israel was given commandments by God through Moses showing the mind of God. The written commandments showed what was in men that did not come into alignment with God’s word. Prior to that time, men had no guidelines to show them what was acceptable behavior and what was not. The written word defined for men guidelines showing God’s nature. Now there was something written that set men in order that would serve to show the sin nature and weakness in the flesh. It brought forth the death of condemnation. The law couldn’t deliver a man from the sin nature and give him a clear conscience. The law served as a schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, the seed, promised Abraham by God. Prior to this time God spoke to the people through Moses but never directly to them. They didn’t want to be up close and personal with God.
Exodus 20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
Sound familiar? As today, men want others to go to God for them, but they don’t want a personal relationship with Him themselves. If they did He might require something of them. With a relationship He might require them to come into agreement with His holiness, righteousness, die to self and, most of all, to be led of His Spirit from within. (Heb 2:15)
Hebrews 9:9 It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience—(also Heb 9:13-14,23-28)
Man has tried everything to rid himself of a guilty conscience. He’s denied that he has sin. Seared his conscience in disregarding sin. He’s tried to imagine that it isn’t there. He has claimed that he is already holy and without sin. The truth is if you have dead works, you’ll have a dirty conscience. Get rid of dead works and you’ll have a clear conscience, but you just can’t do it through your flesh.
Romans 8:1, 6 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
II Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Here we see that we escape corruption through His divine nature. You don’t name it and claim it. You walk out of the death of Adam into the life of Christ. Christ is brought forth from the darkness of your flesh, where He has been placed, in hope of manifestation. He is to be seen in your earth. (II Th 1:10, Rom 8:19)
Acts 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;
So the Lord God said to the serpent:
“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust (carnal/earthy-Adam was made out of dust)
All the days of your life.
And I will put enmity (foe)
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
This separation is between the carnal and spiritual seed. When the serpent beguiled (to lead astray, to delude, seduce) Eve, he got her to think like him, to serve the self-will to the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
God gave them His way of thinking (heavenly/Spirit-life) when He gave them commandment in what to eat and not to eat. It was His spiritual Word (food) that was rejected when they chose to listen to the serpent – when they chose to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil rather than the Tree of Life (Word). The serpent took that which was God’s way, truth, and life, and twisted it into a lie and they believed it. He lied, robbed, and killed them. He stole their dominion. Now they were in bondage to sin and death. Instead of ruling, they were being ruled over. This fallen condition is not the image of God.
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion…”
Ephesians 2:2-3 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. We were not walking in the nature/image of God, but we walked in the nature of “the spirit …in the sons of disobedience.”
Zechariah 1:8 I saw by night (3915), and behold, a man riding on a red horse, and it stood among the myrtle trees in the hollow; and behind him were horses: red, sorrel, and white.
H3915 From the same as H3883; properly a twist (away of the light), that is, night;
H3883 to fold back; a spiral step:
The light God had given to them was twisted into night. When they breathed in the lie (ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil), they sinned and died. It was a spiritual death that led to a natural death. The sting of death is sin (I Cor 15:56). Death is the absence of life. In the natural we know when breath leaves the body, that death is at hand if breath doesn’t enter back into the body. The Spirit (breath) of the Lord is our life. Fall into sin and see how quickly you feel the sting of death.
Sin-G266 from G264; sin – properly to miss the mark (and so not share in the prize). (Rom 3:23, Phil 3:14)
Gen 3:15 “He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.” This was a position of a defeated foe and a victor. A promise was given that the woman’s seed would overcome the serpent’s seed. Many today lay claim that the seed has always been in them and that it just needs to be quickened.
Let us put this thought to the proof to see if it lines up with the scriptures. (I John 1:1)
First of all when something has to be quickened that means that it is dead. If someone is dead they have no ability any longer to produce life. Whatever they thought they were or whatever pride in self they had was laid down in shame and humiliation to the grave. Once dead your seed also dies with you. Adam can only produce the Adamic, fallen, and sinful seed that is lifeless. He can’t deliver himself. He needs a savior/redeemer. He needs life. We needed to be awakened from the sleep of death.
Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. (Is 60:1-2, 26:19)
Romans 5:6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Ephesians 2:1 ”And you hath He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;”
Col 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Notice in these passages you were asleep in death, without strength, and without Christ. No matter what life you once had or your forefathers, that is not the life that is raised. Christ is our life now. And you will have to have faith in Him and not in yourself any longer. To claim that He has always been in you is but a disguise of the enemy to deceive, lie, and twist away the light. You are still trusting in self and have not put your faith in Christ. (II Cor 3:6)
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him
II Cor 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; (Gal 2:16, Phil 3:9)
Is this Spirit of faith working in you? Faith is believing and believing is trusting in, relying on, and adhering to. The promise was given that a Seed would come through the woman (Eve), not the man (Adam). Mary had to give birth as a virgin. The Adamic could not have a hand in it. This Spiritual seed has always come by way of the impossible. The Adamic/carnal can’t claim any credit. From the impossibility of Isaac through Abraham and Sarah, who were without strength, to the virgin birth of Jesus, the Seed came by the will and strength of the Spirit of God. Matt 1:1-17 in the generations from Abraham to Joseph, Joseph didn’t provide the seed when it came time for the seed to be manifest. And Mary didn’t already have the Seed in her. A woman doesn’t have the seed, but a man provides the seed.
Luke 1:34-35 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” 35 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.”
It was time for the manifestation of the promised Seed that wasn’t planted in the earth yet. This Seed wasn’t already in the lineage of Adam, nor will it revive the adamic/fallen seed. Up until this time the Spirit of God rested upon men, but didn’t dwell within them. We see this in the lives of the apostles. It wasn’t until they were baptized with the Holy Spirit within that they had the strength to overcome and also to understand spiritually. Before this Jesus gave them power (Mark 6), but still they lacked in strength and understanding. Christ in them was their hope.
This wasn’t a natural seed. The Spirit of God was the Seed. Many focus on Jesus’ natural body of the earthy as the Seed, but the Seed was the Holy Spirit of Father within that he was in union with. He declared, “My Father and I are one.”
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 20… and ye in me, and I in you. 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
These scriptures plainly show that they needed the life of Christ to indwell them. They didn’t already have it; they needed Him.
Many already know this, but for the sake of those who don’t, the word abode here came from the word (G3438-Mone; a staying, i.e. residence) which was only used one other time in the entire New Testament. And it was used in this same chapter prior to this statement. Which would suggest that the subject matter was the same. This word also was translated using another word that leads us away from the thought of a dwelling within you. The word was Mansions in the KJV in verse two. Many carnal messengers have piped a tune leading people astray in teaching an outward mansion in glory, when in fact the abode is in you. It is the Father and Son that comes to indwell you. And not just them to indwell you, but for you to learn how to abide in them. (St. John 15:4-10, I Jn 2:24, 27-28) It’s not good enough that He is in you, but you need to learn and be trained on how to live and move in Him.
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
We become a new creation in Christ, born again from above not of the old adamic man. (St. John 3:1-8)
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (Gal 6:15)
When Jesus was crucified, without leaving natural seed behind, the enemy thought they had made a complete end of the matter.
Is 53:8 …And who will declare His generation?
John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Gal 3:16, 21-26 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But (the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
Some see themselves not under the law, but yet they have not come into faith in Christ. To see everything in Christ is a wonderful revelation. Christ shall be all and in all. Does this mean that you are to just sit down and assume that there is nothing that you can do? If this is God’s desire, where is the need for faith, circumcision of the heart and mind, new birth, overcoming, and the cross? You still have to pass through the pearly gate. (Rev 21:1-27) This isn’t a literal city, but the bride of Christ written in signs and symbols. Read this whole chapter and you’ll see a people that are overcomers, prepared, adorned, God indwelling, faithful, measured by a golden reed (Christ the cornerstone/God’s divine nature), and holy. Though the gates are never closed, you still have to pass through the processing of the pearl. The pearl is born through sufferings and so are all of those born of the Spirit of Christ. He places His Spirit in you and it immediately brings suffering to your flesh. Christ is the treasure hidden in your field if you’re born again. (I Pe 1:22-23) Notice in VS 22 that it is “through the Spirit” not around it. (Eph 4:13-15) Verse 15 says that we are to “grow up into Him” denoting that we aren’t there yet if “Christ” is not “in all things”. (Proverbs 3:6) You are being enticed/beguiled to look for any other entrance. (II Cor 11:3-4) It says to enter in any other way is to be a thief and a robber. You may not realize that you’re being lied to, but the enemy wants to rob you of your inheritance. What you don’t see in this city/people is the fearful, unbelieving, abominable, murders, whoremongers, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars. It is going to take a further processing of fire to bring these to a willingness to put their faith in Christ. (Rev 21:8, I Cor 3:9-19)
1 John 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
Father had to come in the likeness of sinful flesh to redeem us. He had to have a seed in the earth that would not walk after the ways of the flesh in accord “to the prince of the power of the air (breath).” The breath in Jesus was The Holy Spirit (Breath) of Father God. All of those called by His name will have their wilderness experience of resisting the enemy not only without, but within. It is the breath of God (Holy Spirit) that makes us alive.
Matt 10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Let me ask you this question; if the Father speaks through you, does this make you the Father? No it doesn’t. It testifies of your Sonship. (John 14:23, Gal 4:4-7) You are His generation/seed in the earth, if He dwells in you. (Ps 22:30)
Heb 1:1-2 God… hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Listen to Jesus’ own testimony:
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God.
John 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. 29And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. (I John 3:17, II John 1:9)
John 8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak;
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word (G3056) 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. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.”
Word-G3056 From G3004; something said (including the thought);
1 Timothy 2:15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.
Let us look at this scripture from a spiritual viewpoint. The Seed is in you, but it is hidden from the world. You have said that you are carrying the Seed and it is evidenced that you are showing signs that indeed a seed is in you. Whether this seed is the Seed remains to be seen. We can boast to everyone as to the father, but until a manifestation occurs we won’t truly know. We have seen many seeds (Ishmael’s) wanting to be recognized as the Seed. Christ is The Seed.
(Col 1:27) It says that there shall arise many false Christ’s and prophets. (Mark 13:22) There has been travail in the freewoman to produce a full manifestation of the Son in the earth. The rulers of darkness are doing everything to keep this image/manifestation from coming forth in the earth, but who can stay the arm of God? Can the Herod’s of today stop it?
Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed G601 (to uncover) in us.
This Seed is coming through much travail. And to those that have submitted to this “trial of your faith” your redemption draweth nigh. The dawning of His Day is upon you and within you. (I Pe 1:7, 4:12-13) This Seed that He has birthed in you can’t help but to sing praises to Him. (I Pe 2:9) This day will reveal what is hidden in each and everyone and it shall be shouted from the housetops, (Matt 10:26, Luke 17:30) whether it is The Son or another imposter claiming Sonship. In your housetop what are you shouting? Is it the mind of Christ or the breath and mind of another?
I can hardly describe the Godly fear, trembling, awe, humbling, and joy that has gripped my heart. God doesn’t need us (flesh) to speak for Him: He can speak for Himself. We better silence our flesh and the only voice speaking had best be His.
Zech 2:13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. (Malachi 4:1-3)
A woman is so close to death when life is being brought forth. Many don’t want any part of a birthing, but claim they’re already finished. Then let us examine the manchild to see for ourselves. I am seeing Him coming forth in a people and the uncircumcised are not in the number. I love to obey the commandments of God because He has written them in my heart and mind. This is His covenant and, if this isn’t happening to you, then you need to examine your heart. (II Th 1:10, Ph’p 3:3,9, Col 2:6-17)
I was in a meeting recently and I felt such a disturbance in my spirit. My spirit couldn’t find any rest or peace in what I was hearing. The Spirit was actually shaking as if I was cold. A sister latter told me, that this same thing happened to her while in the presence of evil. Some there felt that in me and thought to tell me, “brother you need to believe that God is happy with you and just breath.” Well I knew God was happy with me, but that wasn’t my problem. What I was hearing breathed out, I couldn’t breath in. That night God gave me a dream:
“I was sitting at a table and someone smeared blue cheese on a dinner roll and offered it to me. I said, “I ain’t eating that!” (In the natural I hate blue cheese) Then they shoved a plate of deviled eggs in front of me. I said, “I ain’t eating that!” (In the natural I like deviled eggs) End of Dream
The interpretation: blue cheese is made from moldy cheese. The word being offered was being smeared with a moldy word from another day. When it is a new day, you don’t serve what was from another day. You gather fresh manna for that day. Deviled eggs are made from taking the yoke/center/life and mixing it with other things. Men and women are mixing things into the word. If it doesn’t look or smell right, don’t eat it, no matter who is serving it.
