Where is the seed?
Psalms 89:4 -
Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
Last Sunday at my Bible class I was teaching on the real reasons why God called any object or event unclean and the Hebrew word used has 4 meanings (dimensions) and one of them was menstruation. On further study of it we learned it had nothing to do with the process a woman goes through but the Lord was explaining us about the spiritual menstruation His people (both man and woman) go through which is truly unclean.
Another very amazing thing we learned from the Lord is about birth. Although a woman gives birth to a child yet the child existed even before he or she takes form in the womb of his or her mother. The moment the egg in the woman is fertilized, the egg starts to divide and thus starts the formation of the various organs of the child; it is at this very stage when the basic organs develop that the spirit of the child starts to exist into this being that is in the womb. The woman does not create but just bring into existence into this world a spirit being that already existed and was created by the Lord long before. Scriptures tell us we all were created in the beginning and existed since the creation of this world that is why the Lord knows us from the beginning. Then the question comes, where were we before we came into the womb of our mothers? The answer to this I learned when I was teaching my daughter to grow plants.
When we put seeds in the soil the plant already exist within the seed and it comes to life when we sow it. The life of the plant would be a short period from a few days to many years but the life of the seed if keep in right condition could be for hundreds of years. When God blessed Abraham He also blessed the seeds in his loins and same did God do to the seeds that were in the loins of Isaac and Jacob. So we see the seeds existed in the loins of the father even before they started to take form of a man in the womb of its mother. The seeds in the father do not just include the children born by his wife but includes all his generations to come, including of his sons and his grandsons and so on. So can one imagine what God has planned within a man?
We also see that is why curses from generation to generation were via the father and not via the mother.
Today's scripture talks of the seed of David being blessed forever. The Son of Man - Jesus was called the son of David even though He was his God. We see God the Son humbled Himself and became a seed of man that came to natural life within the womb of a woman named Mary. When Jesus Christ comes again scripture state the Son of Man with His Angels, it does not say God the Son with His Angels. When Jesus ascended after 40days of His resurrection the Angel said to His disciples 'He would come back as He went' and He went as a resurrected man - Son of Man. We also read when God blessed Jacob He said out of His loins would come - Kings. When God told Satan in the Garden of Eden that the seed of man would crush its head, He did not speak only of Jesus for Jesus works with us and through us and it is we people of God who will crush Satan's head.
Scripture say the Son of Man will come into the Kingdom of God and His Kingdom would be forever. Jesus called us brethren and Paul also spoke of the crown for those who have a high calling otherwise called the Elect. Paul also expands on this by saying some of us will rule over the Angels
Today God is reminding us He has called us for great things and His plans were set from the beginning of creation. He has not failed and will not fail. We will indeed bring in the Kingdom of God and be co-rulers with Jesus Christ when He comes in glory.

Exodus 20:5 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
