Abraham’s seeds
August 31, 2003 updated April 2, 2007

Isa 6:12-13 “And the YAHWEH have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

Isa. 43: 1,5,7 “Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”

Gal 3:29 “And if ye be Yahshua’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Gen.12.1-3 “Now the YAHWEH had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

“Abraham grew up in the midst of superstition and heathenism. Even his father’s household, by whom the knowledge of Yahweh had been preserved, were yielding to the seductive influences surrounding them, and they “served other gods” than Yahweh Elohim. But the true faith was not to become extinct. Yahweh has ever preserved a remnant to serve him. …The son of Terah became the inheritor of this holy trust. Idolatry invited him on every side, but in vain. Faithful among the faithless, uncorrupted by the prevailing apostasy, he steadfastly adhered to the worship of the one true Elohim. “The Yahweh is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in Truth.” Psalm 145:18. He communicated His will to Abraham, and gave him a distinct knowledge of the requirements of His law and of the salvation that would be accomplished through Yahshua.” {PP 125.1}

Yahweh called Abraham out of the land of Ur of the Chaldees, out of a land of idolatry and sin, into the country of Haran. His father and family accompanied him on the journey; so far they had mixed their idolatry with the worship of the true Elohim. Here they remained until the death of Terah. But from his father’s grave the divine voice bade him go forward. His brother Nahor and family clung to their idols and stayed behind. By the obedience of Abraham leaving his father’s country and his kindred and following the instructions of the Yahweh, he was promised that his name would become the greatest and that all the families of the earth would be blessed in him by their being of that seed. Abraham and Sarah his wife, and Lot and his household and cattle chose to go. From here was to start the planting of the seed of Abraham that was to grow and fill the whole earth, just as the purified kingdom of Yahweh is to grow and fill the whole earth, represented by the Mustard seed in the parable of Yahshua in Matt. 13:31 “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:”

The most famous temple to the moon god was in Ur of the Chaldees, and was worshipped by some of the Hebrews, despite the fact that it was forbidden by Yahweh. See Jer.19: 13; Zep.1: 5. The moon serves as a means of marking off the months and regulating the feasts of the Yahweh.

“There was given to Abraham the promise, especially dear to the people of that age, of a numerous posterity and of national greatness: “I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” And to this was added the assurance, precious above every other to the inheritor of faith, that of his line the Redeemer of the world should come: “In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Yet, as the first condition of fulfillment, there was to be a test of faith; a sacrifice was demanded.” {PP 125.2}

Verse 7 “And the YAHWEH appeared unto Abram, and said, unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the YAHWEH, who appeared unto him.”

Verses 14- 17 “And the YAHWEH said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.”

Deut. 7:6 –7 “For thou art an holy people unto YAHWEH thy ELOHIM: YAHWEH thy ELOHIM hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. YAHWEH did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:”

1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

In the kingdom of Yahweh the chosen people are a royal priesthood, an holy nation; for this kingdom signifies royalty of the highest linage, which is of the linage of heaven, which is to be a light to all the world.

“And He said, so is the kingdom of Elohim, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; and should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” {COL 62.2}

“The seed sown upon stony ground finds little depth of soil. The plant springs up quickly, but the root cannot penetrate the rock to find nutriment to sustain its growth, and it soon perishes. Many who make a profession of religion are stony ground hearers. Like the rock underlying the layer of earth, the selfishness of the natural heart underlies the soil of their good desires and aspirations. The love of self is not subdued. They have not seen the exceeding sinfulness of sin, and the heart has not been humbled under a sense of its guilt. This class may be easily convinced, and appear to be bright converts, but they have only a superficial religion.” {COL. 46:3}

The roots of the plant strike down deep into the soil and hidden from sight nourish the life of the plant. So with the Christian; it is by the invisible union of the soul with Yahshua, through faith, that the spiritual life is nourished. But the stony ground hearers depend upon self instead of Yahshua. They trust in their own good works and good impulses and are strong in their own righteousness. They are not strong in Yahweh, and in the power of His might. Such an one “hath not root in himself”; for he is not connected with Yahshua.” {COL.47: 1)

In the multitude that listened to Yahshua’s teaching there were many Pharisees. These noted contemptuously how few of His hearers acknowledged Him as the Messiah. And they questioned with themselves how this unpretending teacher could exalt Israel to universal dominion. Without riches, power, or honor, how was He to establish the new kingdom? Yahshua read their thoughts and answered them:” {COL 76.1}

“Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of Yahweh? Or with what comparison shall we compare it?” In earthly governments there was nothing that could serve for a similitude. No civil society could afford Him a symbol. The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” {COL 76.2}

The Mustard plant is a powerful herb, and has for many years been used as a plaster for pain and other ailments because it creates heat; it is considered a very great herb in the herb kingdom, proving it was the correct choice for Yahshua to use as an example of the purified kingdom, which is to grow and fill the whole earth. It is the smallest seed that grows to a large bush or small tree for the birds to lodge in it.

“The hot summer sun that strengthens and ripens the hardy grain destroys that which has no depth or root. So he who “hath not root in himself,” “dureth for a while”; but “when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. Many receive the gospel as a way of escape from suffering, rather than a deliverance from sin. They rejoice for a season, for they think that religion will free them from difficulty and trial. While life moves smoothly with them, they may appear to be consistent Christians. But they faint beneath the fiery test of temptation. They cannot bear reproach for Yahshua’s sake. When the word of Yahweh points out some cherished sin, or requires self-denial or sacrifice, they are offended. It would cost them too much effort to make a radical change in their life. They look at the present inconvenience and trial, and forget the eternal realities. Like the disciples who left Yahshua, they are ready to say, “This is an hard saying; who can bear it?” John 6:60{COL.47: 2}

Just as the hot summer sun strengthens and ripens the seed for the harvest, just so the mustard seed has heat (Present Truth) to strengthen and ripen the seed (people) for the harvest today for the kingdom of the Yahweh. It will give peace and healing to the spirit of the sin sick soul. It is to purify the character and take away the dross out of the spirit of the individuals. Mustard is a purifier, a stimulator. We are to be purified as gold and tried as silver. We are to stimulate our faith by our study of the prophecies of the Word of Yahweh as given to the prophets before us. Are we going to stand the test and trial? Or, are we afraid to give up our own preconceived ideas to be a part of this purified kingdom of Yahweh and Yahshua? This is the decision every individual is to make in their lives. What is yours? Are you studying to show yourself approved and qualified to stand the test and the heat of the trial and troubles to come upon the people just before they are delivered into the purified kingdom of His dear Son?

As the seed is planted in the ground and has to die before it starts to grow to take its root downward and put forth a blade upward, we, as seed, have to study to know how to be planted, die to self, and then rise again to the newness of life in Yahshua to put forth a blade and grow up into the righteousness of Yahshua. The Word of Yahweh is the Seed and every seed has a germinating principle. This germinating principle is the life of the plant, just so it is the life of the Word of the Scriptures in our hearts. When we prayerfully study the Truth and accept it, we become rooted in good soil; then as our seed takes root downward in the good soil of the Truth in the heart, it is making us strong in the knowledge of the Truth, we become unmovable, and we are able to put forth the Word of the Truth to others. As we are now putting forth the blade and growing into a plant that shall soon put on fruit, and from this fruit comes the seed we sow that grows and becomes still other plants. By this way of the sowing we spread the word of the Truth and the harvest takes place with our being a part of it. Our studying helps us become grounded in the knowledge of the Truth, and when we by faith accept it, then we become part of the Holy Seed through the righteousness of Yahshua.

John 14:6 “Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the Truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Unless we are following the Divinely Ordained System of True Worship through our daily studying of present Truth, learning what is “the way, the Truth, and the life”, we are not planting our Mustard seed in the good ground to die and then live again in the knowledge of the righteousness of Yahshua. This is only accomplished when we die to self and put on the whole armor of the righteousness of Yahshua.

1Tim.2: 15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of Truth.” Studying with a prayerful mind and a desire to know what the Truth is, will lead you in the right way of Elohim, so that none need be ashamed to follow him, and He will lead you into all Truth. There is only one way and that way is in the Divinely ordained system of worship with the daily being kept.

Psalm 77:13,17 “Thy way, O Elohim, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a Elohim as our Elohim? Until I went into the sanctuary of Elohim; then understood I their end.”

“The germ in the seed grows by the unfolding of the life-principle which Elohim has implanted. Its development depends upon no human power. So it is with the kingdom of Yahshua. It is a new creation. Its principles of development are the opposite of those that rule the kingdoms of this world. Earthly governments prevail by physical force; they maintain their dominion by war; but the founder of the new kingdom is the Prince of Peace. The Holy Spirit represents worldly kingdoms under the symbol of fierce beasts of prey; but Yahshua is “the Lamb of Elohim, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29. In His plan of government there is no employment of brute force to compel the conscience. The Jews looked for the kingdom of Elohim to be established in the same way as the kingdoms of the world. To promote righteousness they resorted to external measures. They devised methods and plans. But Yahshua implants a principle. By implanting Truth and righteousness, He counterworks error and sin.” {COL 77.1}

“As Yahshua spoke this parable, the mustard plant could be seen far and near, lifting itself above the grass and grain, and waving its branches lightly in the air. Birds flitted from twig to twig, and sang amid the leafy foliage. Yet the seed from which sprang this giant plant was among the least of all seeds. At first it sent up a tender shoot, but it was of strong vitality, and grew and flourished until it reached its present great size. So the kingdom of Yahshua in its beginning seemed humble and insignificant. Compared with earthly kingdoms it appeared to be the least of all. By the rulers of this world Yahshua’s claim to be a king was ridiculed. Yet in the mighty Truths committed to His followers the kingdom of the gospel possessed a divine life. And how rapid was its growth, how widespread its influence! When Yahshua spoke this parable, there were only a few Galilean peasants to represent the new kingdom. Their poverty, the fewness of their numbers, were urged over and over again as a reason why men should not connect themselves with these simple-minded fishermen who followed Yahshua. But the mustard seed was to grow and spread forth its branches throughout the world. When the earthly kingdoms whose glory then filled the hearts of men should perish, the kingdom of Yahshua would remain, a mighty and far-reaching power.” {COL 77.2}

“So the work of grace in the heart is small in its beginning. A word is spoken, a ray of light is shed into the soul, an influence is exerted that is the beginning of the new life; and who can measure its results? {COL 78.1}

“Not only is the growth of Yahshua’s kingdom illustrated by the parable of the mustard seed, but in every stage of its growth the experience represented in the parable is repeated. For His church in every generation Elohim has a special Truth and a special work. The Truth that is hid from the worldly wise and prudent is revealed to the child-like and humble. It calls for self-sacrifice. It has battles to fight and victories to win. At the outset its advocates are few. By the great men of the world and by a world-conforming church, they are opposed and despised. COL 78.2}

“And in this last generation the parable of the mustard seed is to reach a signal and triumphant fulfillment. The little seed will become a tree. The last message of warning and mercy is to go to “every nation and kindred and tongue” (Rev. 14:6-14), “to take out of them a people for His name” (Acts 15:14; Rev. 18:1). And the earth shall be lightened with His glory.” {COL 79.3}

Lev. 22:32 “Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the YAHWEH ALMIGHTY which hallow you,”

If there is one Truth that is clearly shown throughout the Scripture it is this: His Name and True Worship go hand and hand, they cannot be separated. He prohibits man from substituting His Name just as He disallows any worship other than what he prescribes.

The True Name is not just a matter of His “knowing whom we mean” when we worship or call on Him. His name is the difference between being in the Truth and being outside of the Truth. It’s the difference between worship that pleases Him and worship that provokes Him. He identifies His people as it defines the right way of worship.

The simple lesson for Israel and for us is this: Reject His True Worship and you reject His name. The reverse is also true. Reject His Name for a substitute one, and you no longer have the authentic, True Worship of the Scriptures. The Two are inseparable.

“Elohim created the seed, as He created the earth, by His word. By His word He gave it power to grow and multiply. He said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth; and it was so . . . And Elohim saw that it was good.” Gen. 1:11, 12. It is that word which still causes the seed to grow. Every seed that sends up its green blade to the sunlight declares the wonder-working power of that word uttered by Him who “spake, and it was” who “commanded, and it stood fast.” Ps. 33:9. {COL 80.2}

When the seed is removed from foods, i.e.- grapes, oranges, etc.- the life is gone from the fruit and it is good for nothing. All the life force and nutrition is gone and it is not to be used or considered good food any longer. When man alters things he ruins the previous perfect plan of Yahweh. Yahweh says in the Scriptures that he will destroy those wicked men that destroy the earth.

“It is in obedience to the law of Elohim that the spire of grain bursts through the ground, “first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.” Mark 4:28. These the Yahweh develops in their proper season because they do not resist His working. And can it be that man, made in the image of Yahweh, endowed with reason and speech, shall alone be unappreciative of His gifts and disobedient to His will? Shall rational beings alone cause confusion in our world?” {COL 81.2}

Acts 7:2,5 “…The Elohim of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran, … And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.”

Gen.12: 7 “And the YAHWEH appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the YAHWEH, who appeared unto him.” Abraham left out of the land of Ur of the Chaldees and went into the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh after his father died. He took Lot and his household with him into this land. He obeyed the voice of Yahweh when commanded and in the this land he built an altar and offered a sacrifice to Yahweh, and Yahweh came and visited him and told all the things that would be in the future for Abraham seed because of the obedience of Abraham. At the time his wife was barren and had not been able to bare any children. Despite this fact, Abraham believed Yahweh that he would give him a child for seed to go into all the earth and his faith was accounted to him for righteousness.

Barrenness is the same as being without the knowledge of the Truth. You will not be able to bear any fruit as long as you are without the Truth, and unless you take hold of it in faith, as our father Abraham did, you will remain barren and you will be of the unholy seed, fruit for destruction. The holy seed are fertile and they germinate when planted in good soil and in time bear fruit for repentance and for the kingdom.

Heb.11: 8-10 “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is Elohim.” Yahshua said that if we had the faith of a grain of Mustard seed we could move mountains. Faith is the solid foundation that we are to build on for eternity and it will cause the seed to grow in the soil of our soul to become a great plant in the kingdom of heaven.

By our faith in the complete sanctuary system we come into the perfection of the character of Yahshua; as we follow the divinely ordained system of true worship in our daily lives by the observance of the Daily morning and evening time of offering our prayers to heaven in the sanctuary. Yahshua is there to receive them and with the incense from off the altar he offers them to the Father for forgiveness with the merits of his fresh shed blood that he sprinkles from his hands. (1SM 344.2) As our sins are forgiven, then they are sprinkled with fresh blood from his hands and pardon is written by our name, so on the Day of Atonement, as we come up into the presence of Yahweh we are given a clean record for the year. This is how the sanctuary operates for us today, and it is this that makes us free from the burden of sin. When we keep our sins removed on a daily basis, and as we overcome in our character, we stop sinning and then we become purified and are pure like the grain of Mustard Seed is pure.

Gen 15:12 “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, so shall thy seed be. And he believed in the YAHWEH; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”

Rom. 4:13, 17,18 “For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even YAHWEH, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be.

Gen 22:17-18 “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”

James 2:23 “And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed Elohim, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of Elohim.” Abraham was a righteous man and was called the friend of Yahweh and his son Yahshua came of the seed of Abraham.

Heb. 2:16 “For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.” Abraham was a type of the Yahweh and his son Isaac was a type of Yahshua. When Yahshua came he planted the seed of the Word in the hearts of men.

Behold, a sower went forth to sow”. In the East the state of affairs was so unsettled, and there was so great danger from violence that the people dwelt chiefly in walled towns, and the husbandmen went forth daily to their labor outside the walls. So Yahshua, the heavenly Sower, went forth to sow. He left His home of security and peace, left the glory that He had with the Father before the world was, left His position upon the throne of the universe. He went forth, a suffering, tempted man; went forth in solitude, to sow in tears, to water with His blood, the seed of life for a world lost. {COL 36.1}

His servants in like manner must go forth to sow. When called to become a sower of the seed of Truth, Abraham was bidden, “Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee.” Gen. 12:1. “And he went out, not knowing whither he went.” Heb. 11:8. So to the apostle Paul, praying in the temple at Jerusalem, came the message from God, “Depart; for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.” Acts 22:21. So those who are called to unite with Yahshua must leave all, in order to follow Him. Old associations must be broken up, plans of life relinquished, earthly hopes surrendered. In toil and tears, in solitude, and through sacrifice, must the seed be sown. {COL 36.2}

“The sower soweth the word.” Yahshua came to sow the world with Truth. Ever since the fall of man, Satan has been sowing the seeds of error. It was by a lie that he first gained control over men, and thus he still works to overthrow Elohim’s kingdom in the earth and to bring men under his power. A sower from a higher world, Yahshua came to sow the seeds of Truth. He who had stood in the councils of Elohim, who had dwelt in the innermost sanctuary of the Eternal, could bring to men the pure principles of Truth. Ever since the fall of man, Yahshua had been the Revealer of Truth to the world. By Him the incorruptible seed, “the word of Elohim, which liveth and abideth forever,” is communicated to men. 1 Peter 1:23. In that first promise spoken to our fallen race in Eden, Yahshua was sowing the gospel seed. But it is to His personal ministry among men and to the work, which He thus established that the parable of the sower especially applies. {COL 37.1}

Gen. 24:60 “And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.”

Gen. 25:5 “And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.”

Gen. 26:3-5 “Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”

Psalm 105:8-10 “He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; and confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:”

Rom. 9:6-8 “Not as though the word of Yahweh hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of Yahweh: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”

Just because you might be of the seed of Abraham does not necessarily mean that you are the Promised Seed. In order for any of us to be of the Promised Seed of Isaac, we have to qualify ourselves by how we accept Truth or reject it. When we accept present Truth and study it and follow it, then we become a part of the pure seed line and as we die in the ground (die to self) and take root down then we grow up into a strong healthy plant that is good for use. But if we continue in our carnal nature and don’t believe that the Truth is moving onward, and we reject the Truth, we are therefore classed with the seed of Ishmael, seed of the flesh of Abraham, uncircumcised in heart, not of the promise.

Cleanliness is righteousness; Elohim’s government is law and order, peace and righteousness, joy and contentment. Thus we need to be polished by the Spirit of Elohim, be altogether righteous if we are to “shine,” if we are ever to reflect the Word of Elohim to those who sit in darkness. If you have taken care of all the things the message teaches, then as your supreme duty and Divine privilege, take what Inspiration says: “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, for the glory of the Yahweh is risen upon thee.” Isa. 60:1.

Rom.11: 1 “I say then, Hath Yahweh cast away his people? Yahweh forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.”

Gal. 3:6-9 “Even as Abraham believed Yahweh, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that Yahweh would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, in thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.”

Gal.3: 14-19,29 “That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Yahshua Messiah; 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 Yahshua. And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of Elohim in Yahshua, 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 Elohim 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.”

Gal 4:28-31 “Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.”

Ishmael was the seed of the bondwoman and also the seed of Abraham, but Yahweh called Isaac the first born because he was the Promised Seed spoken of before Ishmael was ever conceived; Isaac was not conceived until after Abraham had been circumcised and all the males in his household. It had to be at the appointed time of Yahweh and not as human devising thought to produce the seed. Because of the human interference in Yahweh’s plans, we have two seeds of Abraham today, the seed of the flesh and the seed of the promise or holy seed.

“Every seed brings forth fruit after its kind. Sow the seed under right conditions, and it will develop its own life in the plant. Receive into the soul by faith the incorruptible seed of the Word, and it will bring forth a character and a life after the similitude of the character and the life of Elohim.” {COL 38.2}

“The teachers of Israel were not sowing the seed of the Word of Elohim. Yahshua’s work as a teacher of Truth was in marked contrast to that of the rabbis of His time. They dwelt upon traditions, upon human theories and speculations. Often that which man had taught and written about the Word, they put in place of the Word itself. Their teaching had no power to quicken the soul. The subject of Yahshua’s teaching and preaching was the Word of Elohim. He met questioners with a plain, “It is written.” “What saith the Scriptures?” “How readest thou?” At every opportunity, when an interest was awakened by either friend or foe, He sowed the seed of the Word. He who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Himself the Living Word, points to the Scriptures, saying, “They are they which testify of Me.” And “beginning at Moses and all the prophets,” He opened to His disciples “in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.” John 5:39; Luke 24:27. {COL 38.3}

“He that reapeth,” He said, “receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.” Here Yahshua points out the sacred service owed to Elohim by those who receive the gospel. They are to be His living agencies. He requires their individual service. And whether we sow or reap, we are working for Elohim. One scatters the seed; another gathers in the harvest; and both the sower and the reaper receive wages. They rejoice together in the reward of their labor.” {DA 191.5}

“Yahshua said to the disciples, “I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor: other men labored, and ye are entered into their labors.” The Saviour was here looking forward to the great ingathering on the day of Pentecost. The disciples were not to regard this as the result of their own efforts. They were entering into other men’s labors. Ever since the fall of Adam Yahshua had been committing the seed of the word to His chosen servants, to be sown in human hearts. And an unseen agency, even an omnipotent power, had worked silently but effectually to produce the harvest. The dew and rain and sunshine of Yahweh’s grace had been given, to refresh and nourish the seed of Truth. Yahshua was about to water the seed with His own blood. His disciples were privileged to be laborers together with Yahshua. They were coworkers with Yahshua and with the holy men of old. By the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, thousands were to be converted in a day. This was the result of Yahshua’s sowing, the harvest of His work.” {DA 192.1}

Matt 25: 7-10 “Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. ”

When the ten virgins arose and trimmed their lamps, the wise had the extra oil in their extra vessels to rekindle their lamps with the light to travel on their journey. When the foolish realized they did not have any extra oil and their lamps were gone out, they asked for extra oil from the wise. But the wise told them no, go to the ones that sell and buy it for yourselves. Obviously it has a price, which has to be paid to get it. Just who are the ones selling the extra oil for their vessels? These Ones are non-other than the Holy Spirit and the Father. They are the Ones that give the understanding and wisdom for the Truth. They are the Ones who taught the five wise virgins as they searched for the extra oil. For you see, the extra oil is extra Truth that you have personally gleaned from your own study of the Scriptures and of the Spirit of Prophecy. It is your personal efforts to prepare for the coming of the bridegroom and to know what to sigh and cry about, what the abominations done in the midst consist of, so when the call is given to go forth to meet him, you have extra oil (Truth) in your extra vessel. With the foolish, they have not studied and put the extra oil in their extra vessels, they are caught without it and have to go to the Source of the Truth (extra oil), purchase it, study and search, sigh and cry, for what the wise found and had as the extra oil to go forward with the bridegroom at the announcement of His arrival.

For the buying of the extra oil in the vessels, is the sighing and crying for all the abominations done in the midst of the congregation. The reason you are sighing and crying is you have been studying for yourself and you see the abominations and sins (idolatry) in the congregation and you desire to bring about a change. You cry out to the Father for help. But if you have waited until your lamp is out, your sighing and crying is in vain for the bridegroom has come and the door is shut and you are left outside. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

“This is the work that the Yahweh would have every soul prepared to do at this time, when the four angels are holding the four winds, that they shall not blow until the servants of Elohim are sealed in their foreheads. There is no time now for self-pleasing. The lamps of the soul must be trimmed. They must be supplied with the oil of grace. Every precaution must be taken to prevent spiritual declension, lest the great day of the Yahweh overtake us as a thief in the night. Every witness for Elohim is now to work intelligently in the lines, which Elohim has appointed. We should daily obtain a deep and living experience in the work of perfecting Christian character. We should daily receive the holy oil that we may impart to others. All may be light bearers to the world if they will. We are to sink self out of sight in Yahshua. We are to receive the word of the Master Yahshua in counsel and instruction, and gladly communicate it. There is now need of much prayer. Yahshua commands, “Pray without ceasing;” that is, keep the mind uplifted to Elohim, the source of all power and efficiency.” {TM 510.2}

Let us remember that self is the barrier between Elohim, and us, for He will never force you to come to Him. Let us ask Him for power to use the grace He so freely provides. He would not have made us free moral agents if He did not expect us to use our wills. We should ask Him to help us to be “willing to be made willing,” and then join our wills to His, and so “work out our own salvation.” We need the strength of Elohim to resist all evil, to overcome the world as Yahshua overcame.” Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 41:23

Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 41:26-27 “Isa. 61:4 — “And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.”

“Those who are made glad and beautiful, who are clothed with praise and who become trees of righteousness — the planting of the Yahweh. His triumphant servants, the guileless Ezras and Nehemiahs of today, are to restore all things.”

Isa. 61:5 — “And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.”

“The strangers and aliens here mentioned, are of course not strangers and aliens to the Kingdom of Yahweh, but to the nation not a blood relation to Judah and Israel, not of the stock of Jacob, not of the 144,000 who first stand on Mount Zion, but with them.

Isa. 61:6 — “But ye shall be named the Priests of the Yahweh: men shall call you the Ministers of our Elohim: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.”

“In the forthcoming antitypical Kingdom of Judah, therefore, there shall be two groups of people — ministers and laity.”

“From these scriptures we see that the Kingdom of Yahweh, the church purified, free from “tares” is a real thing. It is not something imaginary, not something foamy floating and lost in space, but right here on earth.”

Isa. 61:7 — “For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.”

“These ministers of Yahweh are to have double because of the shame which they have endured, all such rejoice in their portion. Are you disposed to suffer for Yahshua’s sake? Are you like or unlike those who seek joy and friendship from the world and who sooner or later are to find themselves in great disappointment? Believe! That is all.”

Isa. 61:8 — “For I the Yahweh love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in Truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.”

“Judgment and justice is Yahweh ‘s motto for all His creatures. The statement, “I hate robbery for burnt offering,” implies that such unbecoming things are now practiced among His people.” Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 41:27

Isa. 61:9 — “And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Yahweh hath blessed.”

“What a blessed hope! What a power to save both the young and the old and to make their names known world-wide! For such a fame as this, people would go through almost any torture known to mankind. Yahweh, though, is only asking you to believe and to comply with His Word, — yes, that is all.”

“Christianity is to become a real thing, so real that the Gentiles will acknowledge that such Christians can only be the planting of the Yahweh, and that only the power of Elohim can bring such a change in the human heart, and cause His saints to say:”

Isa. 61:10 — “I will greatly rejoice in the Yahweh, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.” Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 41:28

“This chapter of Isaiah the prophet is indeed to bring “revival and reformation” such as has never taken place since the beginning of sin. Elohim forbid that any one of us should miss the experience and the blessings that come through this revival and reformation.”

Isa. 61:11 — “For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Yahweh Elohim will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” “Through the seed of Truth in the heart this experience will come to Elohim ‘s people as naturally as does the earth cause the seed sown in it to bud and bring forth fruit. This is indeed the “righteousness of Yahshua,” not the might of men.” Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 41:29

If we be Abraham’s seed then are we the seed of the promise and heirs of the purified kingdom. Only the pure and undefiled will be a part of this kingdom and an heir of salvation. The promise is that this kingdom will grow and fill the whole earth and all nations and kingdoms that will not serve thee shall be destroyed. Also, all purified nations and kingdoms are going to flow unto this pure kingdom and have peace and safety from the trouble in the world around them. This peace and safety is what is going to draw others to us. The purified kingdom starts out as a grain of Mustard seed and grows to be the greatest of all kingdoms on earth. In Yahshua’s day, he started His kingdom as a grain of Mustard seed and it grew and became great, but this kingdom here in the end is the one that fills the whole earth. If you come and join us now, you can help with the building of it and watch it grow and become the greatest. This is the little stone cut out of the mountain in Daniel 2:44-45. This is the greatest privilege that has ever been given to any man. We are living in the grandest times of this earths history and to think that you can be a part of it, and be on the ground floor, so to speak, and help to make it grow and become a reality right before your eyes is a great privilege and call.

“Ye that fear the YAHWEH, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. For the kingdom is the YAHWEH’S: and he is the governor among the nations. A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Yahweh for a generation.” Psalm 22:23,28,30

Mal.3: 16-18 “ Then they that feared the YAHWEH spake often one to another: and the YAHWEH hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the YAHWEH, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the YAHWEH of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth Elohim and him that serveth him not.”

For the book of remembrance was written for the ones that have feared and served Yahweh and honored His sacred name, and have not called Him by the defiled pagan names. These are the ones that are to be His, He says, so, if you want your name to be written in the book of remembrance then you are to fear Yahweh and obey all that is in the Scriptures and study for yourselves to overcome the wicked one in the strength and power of Yahweh. For the Scripture says, the over comer will He make a pillar in the temple, because this is the temple that is to be more glorious than was Solomon’s as it is made up of the lively stones.

1Kings2: 33 … but upon David, and upon his seed, and upon his house, and upon his throne, shall there be peace forever from the “YAHWEH.

2Sam.22: 50-51 “Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O YAHWEH, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.

Ïsa.59: 20-21 “And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the YAHWEH. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the YAHWEH; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the YAHWEH, from henceforth and for ever.”

To review our study now, we see that only the promised seed of Abraham, the seed of Isaac and Jacob (Israel), the twelve tribes, are the ones that are to inherit the purified kingdom, the grain of Mustard seed, the one that Yahshua spoke about in his parable to the multitude.

The five wise virgins have the extra oil of Truth because they studied for themselves, and learned the truth and were sighing and crying over the abominations done in the house of Yahweh. For we read in Isa 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.” This is the law that assures us that we are teaching and following the Truth of the Word of Yahweh.

Don’t come up as one of the five foolish virgins, study these Truths and take them to the Scriptures and compare them. If something is not clear, get on your knees and pray about it. Write to us and we will try and help you in all that we can. Let the Holy Spirit guide you into all things.

This my dear brother, sister is what we are commanded to do if we would be one of the wise virgins and have the extra oil in our vessels and come into the purified kingdom. Search these things out for yourself and prove them according to the Scriptures. We want to see all of you in the kingdom.
