Abba’s Word (SEED) will not return unto Him void!
“The kingdom of YaHuWaH is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.” Mark 4:26-29
Messiah said the very reason the seed goes through this process is to produce a harvest of fruit, which is in essence, an innumerable reproduction of the original seed. YaHuWaH sowed the good seed in order to produce an immense harvest of fruit “whose seed is in itself.” When the fullness of that harvest comes, the reaping will begin suddenly.
Before the harvest comes though, the seed must germinate. Once it does, one of the first things the seed will do is put down roots. Of course, the roots continue to grow beneath the surface because they serve as the heart and anchor of the plant, or for the sake of our illustration, the tree. Acting as the heart, the root system pumps all the nutrients the tree will need to thrive and produce fruit.
As the anchor, the roots aid in the stability, and consequently, the longevity of the tree. So then, we are faced with the fact that, it is not the branches, foliage or trunk of the tree that is most important, but the roots born of a seed (Word). This is not to say that the other components are unimportant, for they too came from the same seed. Furthermore, the part above the surface is where the fruit will grow.
For if their casting away is the restoration to favour of the world, what is their acceptance but life from the dead? Now if the first-fruit is set-apart, the lump is also. And if the root is set-apart, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, have been grafted in among them, and came to share the root and fatness of the olive tree. John 11: 15-17
You shall say then, “The branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” Good! By unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by belief. Do not be arrogant, but fear. John 11:19-20
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. “Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit “You are already clean because of the Word (SEED) which I have spoken to you. “Stay in Me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who stays in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without Me you are able to do naught! “If anyone does not stay in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you stay in Me, and My Words (SEED) stay in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. In this My Father is esteemed, that you bear much fruit, and you shall be My taught ones. John 15:1-8
