Abraham was of the lineage through which God’s “Seed” (Jesus) would come, and by whose cross and shed blood all believing mankind may be “reconciled” to God.
Every regenerated Christian is forever saved by virtue of being endowed with the very life of the Lord Jesus Christ because, in the Bible, Christ is seen as God’s “seed (Gk. sperma)” sown into every believer’s human “spirit of man.” Thereby they are “one spirit” with Christ (1Cor 6:17).
We receive God’s Spirit/Seed, “the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus” (Rom 8:2a), only by grace, through faith in Christ’s crosswork. The seeded “Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus” takes root in our hearts. Then, our spiritual growth is by the maturation of “the Seed” unto its full expression.
The context tells us, wherever the King is, there is His realm (His kingdom). The reality of His kingdom does not come “with observation” because, foremost, His is a ‘spiritual kingdom.’
Paul also wrote to “the body of Christ” confirming that Christ is the “seed (sperma).”
Part 6 – The “Seed” of God:
This can be so for us only because… after Jesus was ‘processed’ through the cross… “now the Lord is the Spirit” (2Cor 3:17).
He (Abraham) saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of One, And to thy (God’s One) Seed, Which IS Christ.” (Gal. 3:16).
Today every member of “the body of Christ” has been “regenerated” (Titus 3:5) by God’s “One Spirit” (Eph 4:4), as the “Seed which is Christ.” Our faith at salvation brings the deposit of God’s eternal life-seed,” which is Christ, into the womb of our human spirit.

If you desire the Word of God to produce in your life, you must decide to plant the Word in your heart and mind.
* A seed is much smaller than the plant it produces.
Speaking God’s Word with your mouth is essential. As we speak God’s Word we are planting the seed in our heart for the harvest of results we desire.
Your physical senses are incapable of judging whether a seed is alive or not. You cannot see, feel, hear, smell, or taste the life in a seed. There is only one way to prove a seed is alive — plant it.
In Mark 4:30-31, Jesus explained that the kingdom of God works like a seed. So, if we are to understand God’s kingdom and how He operates, we need to understand seeds.
1 PETER 1:23 NKJ
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
* A seed always produces after its kind.
2 CORINTHIANS 9:6 NKJ
6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
The best way to plant the seed of God’s Word in your life is by speaking the Word. Hearing others speak the Word is good — but will not produce as bountiful a harvest as speaking the Word yourself.
Gods seed God’s Word Is A Seed M ost people expect God’s Word to work like a stick of dynamite — but God’s Word is like a seed. We know because of what Jesus said. LUKE 8:11 NKJ
