In every situation…


The LORD liveth; and blessed be my Rock; and let The God of my salvation be exalted. Hosanna blessed be my Rock, let the Rock of my salvation be exalted! It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

In faith is my seed sown, with prayer it is watered and to God’s glory is The Harvest, Amen. My wine vats are full and spill over, my storage sheds are full of God’s grace, Amen

God delivereth me from mine enemies: yes Hallelujah! Thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: Thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Therefore will I give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto Thy Name.

In every thing I give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning me, Amen. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Great deliverance giveth my LORD to his children; and sheweth mercy to the anointed, to David (the ancestor of Christ), and to his seed for evermore. Psalm 18:46-50

  1. Jesus is the seed of David

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Messiah, “the seed of David” (τὸ σπέρμα Δαβίδ), as the New Testament confirms (Rom. 1:32 Tim. 2:8 cp. John 7:42).

  1. Meaning of “Seed”

How is Jesus the Messiah, the seed of David, if Jesus is God, and God created man (Adam), and David is the seed of Adam?

The Greek word σπέρμα (sperma) and Hebrew word זרע (zera) refer to the progeny of a living, created being (a creature), in this case, a human. Being a living creature, a human consists of flesh and bones (Luke 24:39), among other things. On the other hand, God is spirit (John 4:24), that is, incorporal and increate. That which is born or begotten of flesh is flesh (John 3:6).

  1. How Jesus is the Seed of David

While God created Adam, Adam is not God’s seed. On the other hand, David is the seed (or progeny) of Adam, and from David came Mary, and from Mary came Jesus. Hence, Jesus is of the seed of David through his mother Mary, who herself was descended from David. To be certain, not only men are described as having “seed” in scripture, as the prophecy relates how “her seed” (i.e., Eve’s; Gen. 3:15) would crush the serpent’s head. This came to fruition by the virgin birth when Mary bore Jesus.

Also, we should realize that every paternal ancestor of Mary may be reckoned as Jesus’ father. Thus, Mary’s father, who is Jesus’ maternal grandfather, is reckoned as Jesus’ father, and so on, all the way until Adam, who may also be reckoned as Jesus’ father. The Jews had a saying, “The sons of sons (i.e., grandchildren) are as sons” (בני בנים כבנים). Thus, commencing with Luke 3:23, Heli is Jesus’ father (although he is literally Mary’s father), and proceeding to Luke 3:38, where Enos, Seth, and Adam are all Jesus’ fathers (also, it is Jesus, not Adam, who is “the son of God” in Luke 3:38 cp. Luke 1:321:353:22).
