Summary: THE SEED NEEDS THE SOIL TO HIDE, NURISH & ANCHOR ITSELF. WE ARE THE SOIL AND THE WORD OF GOD IS THE SEED. THE SEED NEEDS THE SOIL JUST AS THE SOIL NEEDS THE SEED TO ENURE GOWTH AND PURPOSE.
THE SEED AND THE SOIL
MATTHEW 13: 1-8
DEEP IN THE REMOTE FROZEN TUNDRA OF NORWAY, JUST 800 MILES FROM THE NORTH POLE, LIES A GUARDED FACILITY. THIS FACILITY IS BURIED 430 Ft DEEP IN THE SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN PLATEAU. STORED AT A BONE CHILLING 0 DEG FAHRENHEIT BEHING A SERIES OF KEY CODED AIR LOCKED VAULT DOORS. YOU WANT TO TALK SECURITY. THE VAULTS ARE NOT ONLY IN ONE OF THE MOST REMOTE PARTS OF THE WORLD WITH SNOW 10 FEET THICK AT TIMES, BUT THERE IS ALSO A NATURAL SECURITY GAURD TO PROTECT THIS PRECIOUS RESOURCE. ZOMIE POLAR BEAR WITH RABIES. THE MALE BEAR CAN WEIGH UP TO 1500 LBS. THESE BEARS ARE KNOWN TO ATTACK AND CONSUME HUMANS UNLIKE ITS COUSIN THE BROWN BEAR WITH WILL ATTACK, MAME AND LEAVE.
IF YOU CAN SURVIVE THE UNFORGIVING REMOTE, FROZEN LANDSCAPE, YOU STILL HAVE TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE STEEL DOOR VAULT. WITH ARE LOCKED WITH A HIGHLY SOPHISTICATED CODED KEY SYSTEM WHICH ONLY ONE KEY PER VAULT. THE CONTENTS ARE DEEMED SO VALUABLE THAT A BACK-UP CHILLING SYSTEM IS IN PLACE TO KEEPS ITS CONTENTS FROZEN TO ENSURE THE PRESERVATION OF THIS TREASURE IN THE EVENT OF EXTREME CLIMATE CHANGE A CATACLYSMIC EVENT, WETHER NATURAL OR MAN MADE. IT IS SAID THAT IF THE CLIMATE WERE TO CHANGE AND THE POWER WERE TO FAIL, THE AIR TIGHT, HEAVLY INSULATED VAULT, THE CONTENTS COULD REMAIN FROZEN FOR UP TO 200 YEARS.
WHAT AN AMAZING PROJECT CORRECT?
IT MAKES YOU WONDER, WHAT IS IT, INSIDE THESE VAULTS, THAT NATIONS OF THE EARTH WOULD ASSEMBLE TOGETHER AND GO TO SUCH GREAT LENGTHS TO STORE AND PROTECT?
THIS MULTI-MILLION PROJECT INVOLVING A MULTI-NATIONAL EFFORT IS NOT TO PROTECT A SECRET MILITARY PROJECT.
NOT TO STUDY THE REMAINS OF A UFO CRASH LANDING. OR THE BODY OF BIGFOOT.
NOT TO PROTECT A SECRET WORMHOLE OR QUANTUM LEAP (TIME MACHINE) PROJECT.
WHAT NORWAY SPENT SO MUCH MONEY AND TIME TO PRESERVE IS SIMPLE. A SEED.
STORED IN THE AIR TIGHT VAULTS, 430 FEET IN THE SIDE OF A REMOTE MOUNTAIN, POLAR BEARS IS APPROX. 6,000,000 SEED SAMPLES FROM ACROSS THE WORLD. SEEDS.
NOW THAT I GOT YOU’RE INTEREST THIS MORNING, I WANT TO ASK YOU A SIMPLE QUESTION. SEEDS MUST BE PRETTY IMPORTANT TO SUSTAIN HUMAN LIFE ON EARTH CORRECT?
JESUS THOUGHT SO.
1 That same day Jesus left the house and sat by the Sea of Galilee. 2 Large crowds gathered around him. So he got into a boat. He sat down in it. All the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things by using stories.
He said, "A farmer went out to plant his seed. 4 He scattered the seed on the ground. Some fell on a path. Birds came and ate it up. 5 Some seed fell on rocky places, where there wasn't much soil. The plants came up quickly, because the soil wasn't deep. 6 When the sun came up, it burned the plants. They dried up because they had no roots. 7 Other seed fell among thorns. The thorns grew up and crowded out the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It produced a crop 100, 60 or 30 times more than what was planted.
JESUS OFTEN TAUGHT PEOPLE USING PARABLES. WERE ARE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK ARE THE PARABLE JESUS TAUGHT, OFFSHORE TO HIS ONSHORE CROWD.
JESUS SAID IN VS. 3 He said, "A farmer went out to plant his seed.”
YOU KNOW JESUS DOES NOT SAY SOMETHING JUST TO SPEAK AND SOUND CLEVER OR CUTE. JESUS MADE A PROFOUND REFERENCE TO THE SEED.
THE GREEK WORD FOR SEED IS SPERMA. IT IS WE GET THE WORD SPERM FROM.
THIS SEED IS COMPOSED OF 3 PARTS.
STORED FOOD FOR THE EMBRYO
WHAT DOES THE SEED REPRESENT? WHEN I SEE A SEED, I SEE UNTAPED POTENTIAL. I SEE, BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND THE POWER AND LIFE IN THIS LITTLE SLEEPING GIANT. RIGHT NOW IT LIES DORMANT, ITS ASLEEP. IT’S WAITING TO GROW.
IN THIS STATE OF “SUSPENDED ANIMATION” THE SEED IS STYMIED. SCIENTIST CALL IT A “STATE OF ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT”
BEFORE THIS TEENY TINY SEED GROWN AND BECOMES WHAT GOD INTENDED IT TO BECOME, A FRUIT BEARING PAPAYA TREE, SOME IMPORTANT DETAILS MUST FIRST BE CORRECT FOR IT TO TAKE ROOT AND GROW.
JESUS USED A SEED TO REPRESENT THE WORD OF GOD. AND THIS SEED OF GOD, HIS WORD, HAS THE POWER TO TRANSFORM!
THE SEED, WHEN SEEDED IN YOUR HEART WILL GROW, TRANSFORM AND PRODUCE AN INCREDIBLE CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.
YOU CAN CARRY THIS SEED AROUND IN YOU’RE SHIRT POCKET AND KEEP IT CLOSE TO YOUR HEART, BUT WILL THAT MAGICAL PROCESS OF A SEED GROWING INTO A TREE HAPPEN? OF COARSE NOT.
