Growth Process 2

Psalm 127:1-2: Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.  
The heart of man is God's spiritual/natural interface. Spirit God and physical earth meet in the heart of man. Two realms meet heaven and earth connect in the heart of man.
The pure heart of man is like a fruitful garden. It receives spiritual seed from God and grows it into the natural world. (The earth yields crops by itself.)
The soil must be moistened and protected by the life giving brooding of the Holy Spirit. 
The pure heart of man is God’s production center on earth that fills the world with God’s plan and rule. Only the pure heart of man is the wife of God capable of intimately relating to Him, receiving seed from Him and giving birth to God’s plan and rule into the earth. If we love God and intimately relate to Him, we will receive His seed and become pregnant with God’s plan. If, however, we love another god, its seeds will be planted in us.
The kingdom of God is Christ Jesus. The Seed of God was sown into the world when Christ became a man to redeem and restore the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
All who receive Christ Jesus are seeded with the King and the kingdom of God. The King and the kingdom of heaven is planted in the heart soil of God’s people by the Holy Spirit. The presence and power of God in Christ Jesus are in the world through us to release the kingdom of heaven on earth. The seed of the Son of God in us planted by our lives into others produces many sons of God on earth.
Things in the world are changed through the process of the seed and natural growth.  We cannot change our character and actions by trying hard. Trying to stop doing something we want to do, or trying to start doing something we do not want to do will not make permanent changes. We must change what we hear, what we think and what we believe. We must receive new seed, the seed of Christ that will grow and change who we are and what we want to do.
Every word from God within us is a seed that can grow into the natural world. Man shall live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Christ Jesus is the Word from God. Every vision, thought, feeling or communication in any form from God is through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit of God. Christ in us is the hope of glory.
Luke 8:15: But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience (endurance).
