New DisclaimerThe biblical use of the word “seed” is considered, today, along with Scripture points on salvation through Jesus Christ.  In addition to its referring to agriculture, “seed” is used regarding sexual reproduction as well as spiritual rebirth where divine seed is implanted (we say, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth).  By contrast, unrighteousness and wickedness also may be imparted.  Thus, there are also those among created beings and living creatures who exist as the children of disobedience, and the offspring of the wicked.  Consider again the following from the Bible, and the discussion appearing below:  John 8:  42-44, King James Version (KJV):  42 Jesus said unto them, if God were your Father, ye would love me.  For I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my  word.  44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:  for he was a liar, and the father  of it.  Also, Ephesians 2:  1-3, KJV:  1 And you hath he quickened who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  3 Among whom we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling our desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

Christians: What constitutes a seed of falsehood and can they be saved?

The related scripture is this
Isaiah 57:4
Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.

Are they a people produced of occultic origins?
Another scripture that comes to mind is
Galatians 3:8
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Would heathen be the same type of thing?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:  for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.  Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.  And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.  For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise:  but God gave it to Abraham by promise.  Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.  Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.  Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid:  for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.  But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.  (Galatians 3:  13-22, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Ye Are Abraham’s Seed (07/10/2015); Only Divine Spirit Exists? (06/09/2015); Blessing and Inheritance from Abraham? (06/05/2014); On Christians Executing Judgment (06/06/2014); Mustard Seed Faith? (01/16/2014); The Judges Who Condemned Jesus? (01/17/2014); Therefore There Was Trust (01/07/2013); When Does Gossip Become Sin? (01/08/2013)

“RU55311”, within the holy writings the word “seed” is used to speak of ones children and offspring, of doctrine, of things promised, and of what one may impart or implant by speaking.  Also, Jesus Christ is spoken of as the seed promised to Abraham that would fulfill divine commitment to all mankind.  The following Scriptures may help clarify the distinctions that are being made:

(1.)  Psalms 37:  23-29, King James Version (KJV):  23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:  and he delighteth in his way.  24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:  for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.  25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.  26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth:  and his seed is blessed.  27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.  28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever:  but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.  29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

(2.)  1st John 3:  7-11, KJV:  7 Little children, let no man deceive you:  he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.   8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.  For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.  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.  10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil:  whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

(3.)  1st John 4:  1-4, KJV:  1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:  because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:  Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.  3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:  and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.  4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:  because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Matthew 13:  36-40, KJV:  36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house:  and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.  37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;  38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;  39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.  40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
