Dear Ministry Friends, We pray on this end that all is well with you and yours on your end. Thank you so much for being friends to our ministry. Can you believe that it has been over 30 years since this ministry of prayer began! Without your wonderful support we could not have made it. You have been such an encouragement to all of us. I am writing to share with you what the Holy Spirit revealed to me in a greater way about the seed principle of God. In Ezekiel 34:29, it reads, “And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more." The coming Lord is referred to a “PLANT OF RENOWN”.
A few months back I had put some watermelon seeds on a plate on top of the piano at church. Over a period of three weeks or so they just laid there going nowhere and doing nothing, just being seeds. In order for those seeds to grow, I had to plant them into the ground. Yes, the earth can be compared to the womb of the woman and when the seed is put into that ground the “germination happens”. This is why she is referred to as “Mother Earth.” This process is where the seed changes from a state of dormancy (just a seed) to a growing living plant. I used to think that when a seed was put in the ground that was all there was to it; the seed would just come up and bring forth a plant. But I had missed one very important step of the process. The seed does go into the ground, but that seed must die so that the new “tiny plant embryo” accompanied by the nutrients will bring forth the new cycle.
Every seed produces after its own kind, tomatoes bring forth tomatoes, corn brings forth corn, and peas bring forth peas, as we all see producing after its “own kind”. Remember the seed, if allowed to lay dormant, will not produce. It will abide alone, just like the watermelon seeds that lay on the plate on top of the piano at church. I had to plant that seed in the womb of “Mother Earth” so to speak and it brought forth a plant. The seed had to die allowing the “tiny plant embryo” to bring forth and then it began to multiply.
BRINGING FORTH MUCH FRUIT
This is almost the same process for the seed (children) that comes out of Dad’s loin and planted into the Mother’s womb. If that man walks around with the seed in his loins and doesn’t plant it in the womb of a woman, it abideth alone; it does not bare the fruit (children) of the womb. This human embryo will produce after its own kind and every plant embryo or human embryo produces after its kind. It is very important for you and I to understand this, without dying you cannot produce. In John 12:24-25, Jesus said, “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. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” In order for that seed to produce “much” it must die as the above verse explains. Jesus knew that His hour had come and in order to bear much fruit, like the seed, He would have to die in the crucifixion, be buried like the seed into the womb of the ground or the grave in the earth and like the plant embryos and human embryos, come back in the RESURRECTION as He said He would do. Jesus went down alone into the grave (womb of the earth) after the crucifixion and then came back opening graves (resurrection) and bringing with Him many from the depths of the earth. Jesus went down alone and came back up on the third day with many who had been waiting on this day.
Today all of us who have been born-again in Jesus are the “much fruit” that’s come back from death. He had to die so the principle of the seed could become fruitful and bring forth more like Him. As we receive Him into our hearts, or womb of the Spirit, God will bring forth some more beautiful born again plants that will produce for the Glory of God. You and I (OLD MAN) will have to die, otherwise we will abide alone. You see, you and I will look like the same person on the outside, but we will be different on the inside because Jesus Christ is coming forth in this new process, as we die daily. The old you, or the old evil seed, dies and you become a new creature in Christ and begin to be more like Him. The old seed passes away and the new seed of Christ is now planted into your heart and Jesus is growing daily in you; the old self is dying daily. Paul said in Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Paul said, “Yet not I.” What is he saying? Everybody could see with the naked eye that he was Paul, but he says, “yet not I” He was saying, I am no longer the old man but rather the new man, Jesus, now planted into the womb of Paul's heart, was the new seed growing to be like Christ! You and I are doing the same today. To God Be the Glory! by hilda arredondo
