Who Are the Seed of Abraham?
There is a parable that our Messiah told in Matthew 13:33. In this parable, the woman is the Holy Spirit, the Earth is the whole batch of dough and the “leaven” is the “seed of Abraham.” Who are the seed of Abraham? Is it those who carry the physical DNA of Abraham? Yes, it does include them but it goes beyond physical DNA. Even those who have the DNA of Abraham must repent, accept the blood of Yahuwshuwa Messiah as atonement for their sins and obey Towrah.
In Luke 3, Yahuwchanon (John) the Immerser (Baptizer) rebuked those who were putting their trust in bloodline identity. He was essentially saying to them “just because you are the physical descendants of Abraham, does not mean you are automatically saved---you must show the fruit of repentance by obeying the commandments.” Listen to what he says:
Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Luke 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That Elohiym is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 13:33 Another parable spoke he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
The Kingdom of Elohiym (Heaven):
1. Followers of Messiah from the House of Yahuwdah (Judah or Jews).
2. Followers of Messiah from the House of Ephraim (Yisra’el).
3. Followers of Messiah from the Nations who are grafted into Yisra’el as “native born” (Ezekiel 47:22-23).
Kingdom of Satan (Darkness):
1. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from Judah (Jews).
2. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from Ephraim (Yisra’el).
3. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from the Nations.
There are 6 groups represented above and 6 is the number of Adam, man and beast because all were created on the 6th day of creation.
The only difference is the 1st group belonging to the Kingdom of Heaven, have received the Blood of the Lamb as atonement for their sins and they have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. In other words, they have the “breath” of YaHuWaH breathed into them.
