1 1 “…after his kind…” Genesis 1:11-12

2 2 Genesis 1:1 TIMEF0RCE In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Our Physical Universe is Dependant Upon These Five Fundamental Facts of Science! SPACE MATTER ACTION

3 3 The Natural Law Of Gravity! Jesus He defied gravity – He ascended into Heaven! Acts 1:10 Matt. 4:6 - Had the power but did not use it! He walked on water! Matt. 14:23-27 Man Falls! Fall of 10 feet or less is a major cause of death! OSHA Fall Protection Standard! Designed to eliminate the potential for falls! No man today can defy the natural law of gravity! Jesus had power over the law of gravity!

4 4 Genesis 1:11-12 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

5 5 “Whose seed was in itself” Whose seed was in itself – “Which has the power of multiplying itself by seeds, slips, roots…which contains in itself all the rudiments of the future plant through its endless generations. This doctrine has been abundantly confirmed by the most accurate observations of the best modern philosophers. The astonishing power with which God has endued the vegetable creation to multiply its different species, may be instanced in the seed of the elm. This tree produces one thousand five hundred and eighty-four millions of seeds; and each of these seeds has the power of producing the same number. How astonishing is this produce! At first one seed is deposited in the earth; from this one a tree springs, which in the course of its vegetative life produces one thousand five hundred and eighty-four millions of seeds…” – Adam Clark

6 6 “Whose seed was in itself”

7 7 Galatians 6:7, 8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

8 8 Galatians 6:7, 8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. God’s law of sowing & reaping!

9 9 Seed Produces After Its Kind The Fruit is the Product of the Seed! If tomatoes are produced then… We know a watermelon seed or corn was not planted!

10 10 “The Seed Is The Word Of God” The parable of the sower Luke 8:4-15 vs. 11 4 different soils Represent different hearts of men! Only one produced abundantly! “Honest and good heart” – vs. 15

11 11 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

12 12 1 Corinthians 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. Gennao - to procreate (properly, of the father, but by extension of the mother); figuratively, to regenerate:- bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring. - Strong

13 13 James 1:18, 21 18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. (NKJV) Apoqueno - To breed forth, i.e. (by transference) to generate (figuratively):-beget, produce. - Strong

14 14 John 4:35-36 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

15 15 1 Cor. 3:6-9 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

16 16 Seed Produces After Its Kind! If “Christians” are the product, what was planted? The Fruit is the Product of the Seed! If tomatoes are produced then… Watermelon seed or corn was not planted! “The Seed Is The Word Of God”

26 N.T. Churches Established in “the Faith ” SEED Acts 2:38………………………………Acts 5:11 Acts 8:12………………………………………Acts 9:31 Acts 16:31-34……………………………………………Phil. 1:27 Acts 19:5………………………………………………Acts 20:17 Col. 2:12………………………………………………Col. 3:15 Acts 18:8…………………………………1 Cor. 12:13 What “Seed” are you of? Galatians 3:26-29 Jerusalem Samaria Philippi Ephesus Colossae Corinth ONE SEED Lk. 8:11 “ Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up” - Matt. 15:13 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things. But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied. And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house. Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. From Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called for the elders of the church. buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Then Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free-and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Cf. Gal. 1:1-2

27 27 The Body Is the Church! Matt. 16:18; Eph. 1:22-23; Col. 1:18 Obedient people (Christians) added by the Lord to the church (Universal)! Local congregations were “established in the faith”! Not this! Acts 11:26Rom. 16:16 Acts 9:26 Is this! Ekklesia – From ek “out of,” and kleis “a calling.” To the whole company of the redeemed throughout the present era, the company of which Christ said, “I will build my church,” Matt. 16:18, and which is further described as “the Church which is His Body,” Eph. 1:22…to a company consisting of professed believers…and in the plural, with reference to churches in a district. - Vine
