In the flesh our mother received the seed from our father. The child is born in the womb. Then the child grows into a little child much like a fish in water before it ever comes to the time of its harvest from the womb. It comes forth not by water only... but by water and blood. It takes its first breath and it does not take long for the eyes to open to see its father for the first time. The father who gave of his seed to bring forth a child like its father and mother.
What is Spirit is Spirit. In the same like manner are we born again. We were to be that mother, the true church. We are also to become the sons of God. When we receive the seed of our heavenly Father (Jesus Christ)...SEED TIME... We are not to remain in that state, but to grow into that little child and experience our harvest. This is so that we may also see... not only the Father, but the very household of God which is the Kingdom of God. This is a mystery.
Matthew 18:3 Verily I say unto you, except you be converted... and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
John 1:12 But as many as received him (seed of the Father) to them gave he power (to become) the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
There are two experiences to being born again... with growth in between... plus a growth of the child in our Fathers house learning what pleases him... to become like him in all things.
The scriptures say that every (WORD) is established by (TWO) or more witnesses. We need both of these witnesses in our life along with obedience to the word of the household (KINGDOM) that we may truly be a fruit that will remain.

The churches of today are exactly as the churches were when Jesus walked the earth 2000 years ago, full of confusion and with a covering over their eyes. What they call harvest is really seeding. They have it backwards. Some call harvest rapture.
2Kings 2:19-22 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, THE SITUATION OF THIS CITY IS PLEASANT, as my lord seeth: BUT THE WATER IS NAUGHT, AND THE GROUND BARREN. (Naught means; causing to miscarry, unable to bring the child to fullness). And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him. And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land. So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spoke.
The new cruse is Jesus... and the salt is every word that came out of his mouth.
I knew a man over 40 years ago that was seeking the Lord, and the Lord said to him "buy salt." He did not understand what the Lord meant. He went out and bought bags and bags of salt. He put the bags into a shed only to have it spoil over the years under a leaky roof. The man did not understand what the Lord meant... neither was there anyone to give him understanding.
Many people who have received Jesus... the Seed who became the children of the Kingdom, never saw the Kingdom in all their life-time here on earth because of the lack of salt, and the understanding of it. To whom little is given, little is required.
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Soon the Lord will begin a great work. Soon the meaning of the salt will be revealed. Soon the revelation of Jesus Christ will begin. Which is what the harvest is all about.
When judgment is come, then will the people learn righteousness. The wise will come to understanding, but the wicked will do even more wickedly.
Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
(Matthew 25)...Remember the story Jesus told about the virgins. The word for today is to prepare... prepare oil for your lamps... so when our Lord begins His harvest you will understand.
Christ in you the hope of glory.
Christ in you IS the hope of your entering into glory.
John 14:23-24 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS THE WORDS THAT JESUS SPOKE. How sad it is that so many preach, saying to believe in the name of Jesus, yet out of the same mouth they teach the people to deny what Jesus said. They even say what was said then... does not apply to us today. Jude 1:4 spoke of these who were of old ordained to this condemnation. But thanks be to God soon the harvest will begin... then He will separate that which is true from those who are play actors. Indeed it will be like the days of Noah... and like the days of Lot. The Lord knows who are his and how to deliver them out of the bondage of the task masters. Soon He will begin to take the chaff off the head of his wheat and barley, then they will begin to see Him who is TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET THEM FREE!!!
