The Same Seed, the Same Plant

The seed is the Word of God (Lk. 8:11). It makes no difference how long that seed may have been stored. If it came from a crop of a thousand years ago and has been preserved, wherever and whenever it may chance to be planted, regardless of who does the sowing, it will produce the original fruit. God made it a law of nature that the earth would bring forth the “herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind” (Gen. 1 & 2).

The principle is true in the spiritual realm as well. If there had not been a church of God upon the earth after the New Testament order for the last nineteen hundred years, but God’s Word still survived then when people today read, understood, and obeyed it, it would make of them exactly what it made on that memorable Pentecost. It would replicate the original-the same church as in the beginning. This is what the church of Christ is seeking to do in the present age.

 

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” -Jeremiah 6:16a
