The Holy Seed

The Scriptures have much to tell us regarding the Seed of the LORD (see Ezra 9:2; Isaiah 6:13 for direct reference). The Apostle Peter writes: “But you are a Chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a Peculiar People, that you should show forth the praises of Him Who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light” (1 Peter 2:9). Moses wrote in Exodus 19:6 “And you shall be unto Me a Kingdom of Priests, and an Holy Nation. These are the words which you shall speak unto the Children of Israel.”

The Prophet Isaiah tells us the Redeemed of the Lord shall walk on a “Highway. . .called the way of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it. . .but the Redeemed shall walk there” (Isaiah 35:8a,9b).

The Holy Seed walk on a Highway called Holiness prepared for us by the Holy One Who walks on that Highway before us. The Apostle John wrote: “These are they which follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and the Lamb” (Revelation 14:4).

The Holy Seed are Born Again of the Holy, Incorruptible Seed of the Word of God. In his Epistle Peter says we have been “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which lives and abides forever” (1 Peter 1:23). The Holy Seed lives not according to the flesh (the corruptible seed), but according to the Spirit (the incorruptible).

The Apostle John in his Epistle says the Holy Seed is without sin. He writes: “Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin for His Seed remains in him; and he cannot sin because he is born of God” (1 John 3:9). This is a mystery that is difficult to explain. What we can understand in the most simple terms is this. Christ is without sin. On that we all agree. Those who are “in Christ” are in the sinless One, the Holy One, the Lamb of God “who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). John also tells us, “as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:17 “But he that is joined unto the LORD is One Spirit.” So we, being the Holy Seed dwelling in the Holy Seed (the Son of God–Jesus) are joined to Him in the same Spirit and that union is a Holy Union, a Sinless Union, a Sanctified Union, a Perfect Union of spirit to Spirit in Oneness of Nature, the Divine Nature of Christ Jesus. Peter says further that we have been given exceeding great and precious promises and by these promises we have become “partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:4b).

We walk by faith, not by sight. We do not live after the flesh, for if we live after the flesh we shall die. But we are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit. Romans 8 is a special word and revelation given to the Apostle Paul. He says the “Righteousness of the Law can be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit’ (Romans 8:4). Perfection is in the spirit joined with Jesus.

The Holy Seed are called Saints. We hear a lot in our world today about identification. It is time for the Holy Seed to identify as Saints. It is time to let the sinner tag go. He died and was buried in the waters of baptism and was raised in the newness of Life. Walk in Holiness in the Holy One, and walk on the Kings Highway with the Redeemed of the LORD on a way called Holiness, as we walk and live in Zion, the City of our God.
