(Gal 3:29) And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
This very picture depicts the role that would change our lives forever as we have read with our eyes, and heard with our ears the wonderful works of the Seed of Abraham, Messiah Yahushah, in whom we are apart of. The word for son is beth () and nun (), the first character is the picture of a house and means house, in, as what is important is what exist inside of a house, and the second character is the picture of a seed sprout, and means life, seed, to continue as a family lineage continues through the seed of the man.
Spiritually, a woman is not left out as we are the ones who carry the seed of the word of God, and have also been prophesied through scripture to do great things, if we so choose to line up with God’s plan. All the way from the beginning because remember it isn’t about male, nor female, jew, nor greek, but about Messiah. (Gal. 3:28)
(Gen 3:15) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Every man is the house seed of their father, its just a matter of what has been put in the seed that determines whether or not he will grow to full maturity, become that seed that will be planted back in the ground to produce much fruit, even some thirty, sixty, and one hundredfold.
So how do I as a son live up to the perfect plan of Yah. Well the best example of a perfect father and son relationship is that which exist between Yahushah and his father God. He said he only do those things which please him, those things which he has seen with his father. Therefore he was a perfect imitator in word and deed of his father. If we don’t want our son’s to be like us then we need to ask ourselves as Fathers are we the strength of our home? If our actions are not lining up with His word then we need to know if we are bringing about the curse of Mal. 4:6 upon our children?
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.(Joh 8:38)
The question is, is it a compliment or an insult when someone says you are like your father? There are many reasons this could be but two that stand out to me, if the Father of your home wasn’t the strength of it, and then the other is because he did do it, but you were a rebellious son that didn’t appreciate your father.
The only man on earth that is allowed to be called the Father of our Faith is Abraham, and to understand what makes that important as father’s to understand and as a son to understand is why God was willing to tell him things that you don’t hear him saying about a whole lot of other people in scripture. Abraham, was made privy of a major judgment Yah was doing upon the earth, and the reason for this information being provided to him was given in scripture.
And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. (Gen 18:17-19)
If you’re not hearing from Yah as a father it is possibly because you are not commanding your children and your household after Yah. Privileged information is provided to the privileged. When Fathers hearts are turned to the children then children will reciprocate and the end of that is a healthy seed being planted into a home that will produce Godly fruit unto the glory of our King.
