 1Jn_3:9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. KJV

1Jn 3:9  Anyone who is a child of God does no sin, because he still has God’s seed in him; he is not able to be a sinner, because God is his Father. BBE

1Jn 3:9  God’s children cannot keep on being sinful. His life-giving power lives in them and makes them his children, so that they cannot keep on sinning. CEV

1Jn 3:9  Whoever has been begotten of God does not practise sin, because his seed abides in him, and he cannot sin, because he has been begotten of God. Darby

1Jn 3:9  No one who is a child of God is habitually guilty of sin. A God-given germ of life remains in him, and he cannot habitually sin–because he is a child of God. WNT

1Jn 3:9  Those who are children of God do not continue to sin, for God’s very nature is in them; and because God is their Father, they cannot continue to sin. GNB

Lima Bean Seed

A Seed is the Substance, Human, Animal or Vegetable, which has been prepared for the Reproduction and Conservation of the Species. When applied to Human and Animal Matter, it has no plural and is referred to only as Seed.

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/tinytree2.png… The GOD Seed Series

The GOD Seed Series will be discussing the Seed of Man and the Seed of GOD as the Preliminary and Rudimentary Facets of the Physical and Spiritual Reproductive Life on the Old Earth and the New Earth. We will be using the Seed of Mankind as well as the Seeds/Eggs from other Facets of Physical Nature to explain the >> Relationship << of the Spiritual Seed of GOD in the Believer and how this Relates to the >> Two Divisions of Mankind, << the >> Resurrection << and the Ascension of the New Race of Mankind (a New Creature) in the Future according to >> GOD’S Divine Plan << and >> GOD’S Grand Design << Created before the Foundation of the World and before >> the Creation <<  of the Earth and Mankind..

The Seeds

We will begin our Study with Vegetable and Fruit Seeds which are Embryonic Plants enclosed in a protective outer covering called the Seed Coat, usually with Material inside which is stored food for the early Development of the Embryo. It is characteristic of Spermatophytes (Gymnosperm and Angiosperm Plants) and the product of the ripened Ovule which occurs after Fertilization and some Growth within the Mother Plant. The Formation of the Seed completes the Process of Reproduction in Seed Plants (started with the Development of Flowers and Pollination), with the Embryo Developed from the Zygote and the Seed Coat from the Integuments of the Ovule.

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seeds.jpg

Various Types of Seed from Fruit, Vegetables, & Herbs

Seeds vary in size, shape, color and texture. Unless you have experience with or Knowledge of various Seeds and Plants, you may not be able to imagine what the Plant is going to look like when it has grown to its full Stage of Maturity or Fruition, which is its last Stage of Development.

The Mustard Seed

The Mustard Seed is one of the smallest of Herb Seeds but when it is sown and grown to its Maturity it is the largest Plant on Earth. JESUS CHRIST used the Mustard Seed on several occasions in>> Parables << about the Kingdom of GOD/Heaven and Faith.

Mark 4:30 & Translations of 4:31-4:32

Mar 4:30  And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?  KJV

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedmustard1.jpg

The Mustard Seed

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/tinytree2.png

Mar 4:31  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth,

Mar 4:32  yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”  ESV

Mar 4:31  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
Mar 4:32  But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.  KJV

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedsmustardtree.jpg

The Mustard Seed Plant (Tree)

Mar 4:31  It is like this. A man takes a mustard seed, the smallest seed in the world, and plants it in the ground.
Mar 4:32  After a while it grows up and becomes the biggest of all plants. It puts out such large branches that the birds come and make their nests in its shade.” GNB

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/tinytree2.png

Luk 17:6  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

Seed Germination

The Term “Germination”  is defined as anything Expanding into a Form of “Greater Being” from a small Existence. It is to Develop into a Plant or Individual, as a Seed, Spore, or Bulb. It is to cause to come into Existence; Create.

Germination is a Stage of Growth typically used regarding the Physical Life Form called “Seeds”.  

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedinside.jpg

 Inside the Seed

All Healthy Seeds will Produce the parts common to all Plant Seeds such as the Embryo, Seed Coat, Cotyledon, Roots, Hypocotyl (Stems and Leaves) because they are already inside of the Seed. However, the final Product will not Manifest until it has Developed various Attributes Engendered to its Species.

The Basic Parts of a Germinating Seed to a Seedling

http://templeofprayers.org/seedgermination1.jpg

The Embryonic Plant

The Plant Within

Each Plant Seed contains within itself a tiny plant in the Embryonic Stage which is quite well formed. It  already has the first leaves, called Cotyledons, and the Root is clearly visible on a Microscopic Scale. Before a Seed is planted it is in the Innate Dormant Stage. The Embryonic Plant is Alive but in a Dormant (Resting) Stage which prevents Germination until the proper Environment is made available to it. Dormancy is a mechanism to prevent Germination during unsuitable Ecological Conditions, when the Probability of Seedling Survival is low. The reasons for Dormancy may be Attributed to Conditions that are:

  • Exogenous or Endogenous (outside or inside)
  • or the Mode of action which may be Physical, Physiological and Morphological.
https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedofappleinside.jpg

The Seed Has a Tiny Plant in the Embryonic Stage Inside

The Seed’s Life Support System

 The Seed has its own Life Support System consisting of necessary Nourishment, Nutrients and Protection for the early Stages of Seed Development. This includes Food for the Embryonic Plant inside the Seed.  This food is called Endosperm. The Seed Embryo is surrounded with food that it will use during its first days of Growth and Development. Surrounding and protecting the Embryo and Endosperm is a hard shell called the Seed Coat. The Seed Coat protects the Embryo from Negative Environmental and Ecological Factors and Extremes such as Temperature, or other Adverse Climatic Factors, Mechanical Damage, and from Pests such as Parasites.

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedsprouting2.jpg

A SEED SPROUTING

Germination of A Seed
The Germination of a Seed begins as the Dormant Embryonic Plant continues to Develop. Although it is Dormant (in its Resting Stage) it is still developing and getting stronger to survive Exposure to the outer World unprotected by the Seed Coat and the Soil or Water (Hydroponics, Aquiculture, Aquaculture or Aquapontics). During this period the Seed will not Germinate unless conditions are suitable for the Survival of the next stage as the Seed Progresses to the Stage of a Seedling. Once the Embryonic Plant resumes Growth and Development it begins to deplete its Stores of Nourishment. It also loses the Protective Seed Coat.

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedssprouting5.jpg

Seed Shedding the Seed Coat

It is important that Seeds wait to Germinate until their three Basic needs are met: Water, correct Temperature (Warmth), and a good Location (such as in soil or water). During its early Stages of Growth, the Seedling relies upon the Food Supply stored within it, inside the Seed until it is large enough for its own Leaves to begin Manufacturing Food through Photosynthesis. The Seedling’s roots push down into the soil to anchor the new plant and to absorb Water and Minerals from the Soil. It is important that Growth and Development occur Upwards and Downwards relatively at the same Time. The roots need to receive nutrients from the soil while its stem and new leaves are pushing ever Upwards toward the Oxygen, the Light and Warmth of the Sun.

Growth and Development requires Fuel and the Seed begins to seek the Sources of Life Forces beckoning to it. It begins to respond to the Light, https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedlight.gifto Temperatures, Oxygen and Moisture which must be in proper  Balance to help the Seed to Germinate and continue through its Life Cycles

Another Quick Study – The Life Cycle of a Apple Seed/Tree

Now, with the information just discussed we can see what a Seed is and how it Grows and Develops. Following the same Logic we may ascertain that with the proper Environment and a Healthy Apple Seed we will eventually have the Apple Tree which should provide a Harvest of Apples at its Maturation Stage of Fruition.

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/tinytree2.png

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/appletree1.jpg

Life Cycle of the Apple Tree

In this Cycle of Life the Apples will be picked by Humans at Harvest Time to eat or the Apples will be eaten by birds and other Animals when the Apples  fall to the ground.

This will begin the New Life Cycle Process all over again as the Seeds from the fallen Apples (after a Winter Season) begin to Germinate, Sprout, Shed its Seed Coat and rise to meet the Warmth and Light of the Sun. The following information will be mostly in the format of Images depicting the Life Cycle and Developmental Stages of the Apple Seed from Germination to Fruition.

A Brief Summary/Review – Apple Seed To Apple Tree

The Apple Seed must have the necessary Contributing “LIFE FORCES” Exogenous and Endogenously, within it and without it, (inside and outside) to continue the “LIFE PROCESS” that begins with its Physical  Development as it is GERMINATING. 

When we observe the Apple Seed with the naked eye the only thing we can Perceive or See is  the Apple Seed.  However, inside that Apple Seed is everything it needs to “Become” the Mature Apple Tree that will Progress to Fruition and Produce Apples. Not only does the Seed have its own Life Support System with the Building Blocks necessary to Produce the Apple Tree one day, it actually has a tiny Tree already inside the Seed, already  present in the Embryonic Stage

The Quickening

All Seeds have to be “Quickened,” or receive the Spark of Life which Triggers Chemical and other forms of Life Activity to begin Growth and Development. 

https://i0.wp.com/templeofprayers.org/seedinside4.jpg

7 Progressive Steps in the Development of a Seed

Once a Seed has been placed in its Growing Medium whether Soil or Water (Hydroponics) it must be Nurtured to Produce the Activity of Progression and the Continuation of “LIFE”. 

Positive balanced Conditions must be provided and maintained for the Apple Seed to complete the “LIFE CYCLES” necessary to reach the Final stage of  “MATURATION”, “FRUITION” or its Stage of “PERFECTION” which will provide new Fruit, new Fruit Seeds and A “NEW CYCLE OF LIFE”.

Seed Duds – Non Germinating Seeds

Unfortunately, all Seeds do not Germinate.  They appear as other seeds but “negative conditions” such as those from harsh Environmental or Ecological Factors, Pests like Parasites and other Malefic Forces may produce negative effects, affecting the Seed(s) and it deteriorates, diminishes and dies.

Although the Seed has been placed in a Balanced Growth Medium and Environmental Conditions are met, the Seed does not Respond and only Encumbers the space until it finally rots away producing no Sprouts, Seedling or Plant LIFE. Some use may be had of the non Germinating Seeds with the proper maintenance. Mixtures like Mulch and Compost may be utilized as additional growth material to be used like Fertilizer but even at this stage there must be proper care of the remains to prevent Infectious Plant Disease and Parasites (Insects/Fungus etc.).

But as to the Seed itself , IT IS LOST!. It can not be Actualized into its own Individual Potential such as Germinating to become the Apple Seedling, Apple Sapling, or to grow and Develop to Maturation and Fruition as a Apple Tree that would bear FRUIT. In the case of the Seed that will not Germinate, it simply dies without Realizing its Potential.

The Seed of Mankind

Connections:

As we continue with this Series, The GOD Seed, we will discuss how the Seed Approach may be viewed for other various Life Forms such as Animals and Insects like the Moth and Butterfly, the Seed of Mankind and the Artificial Life Form or Construct, the Society of Man –  the World.

Each has its own “Seed/Egg” Structure, its own Developmental Stages and its Final State of Maturation or Fruition. The Chain of Life becomes Selective and Complex as we Progress and Ascend Upwards. Mankind, the last to be Created by GOD, was the “Crown of Creation”.  GOD Created Mankind as a Perfect Righteous Being but the Descent of Adam, due to the >> Sin of Unbelief << Altered the Condition of Mankind. As all People/Human Beings were in the Loins of Adam when he Sinned, all People (the Seed of Adam) are Sinners/Unbelievers, doomed to the Penalty of Sin which is the Curse of Death which befell Adam and was Inherited by his Progeny (the Seed of Adam) until the coming of JESUS CHRIST. We will discuss the Seed of Adam/Mankind in the upcoming articles.
