When God speaks, His words are binding—they’re like an unbreakable contract. He always says exactly what He means, He never lies, and He never says, “Whoops, I’ve changed My mind.”
This entire universe is held together by the power of God’s words. It was His word that created the earth and every living thing on it, and by His words, He created Adam and Eve. He didn’t make them or any part of this world with His hands; He spoke it all into existence.
Then, after creating all of this, He said,
Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
He gave absolute dominion to Adam and Eve. He took His power—His right to rule and control the earth—and gave it to physical human beings. In a sense, He excluded Himself from ruling over the earth. I know that’s a new wrinkle in some of your brains, but it’s true, and it answers many questions concerning the sovereignty of God.
Two very important questions often come up: one, why did Jesus have to come to earth; and two, if it was necessary for Him to come, why did God wait four thousand years to get Him here?
To answer the first question, it was a man—a physical human being—who had been given authority on the earth by God. Therefore, it was necessary for a man with a physical body to take back that authority. God cannot break or change His word, so He was restricted to act within the word He had already spoken.
As for the timing, we need to look at Galatians 4:4, which says, “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son.” This means God had to choose the appropriate moment. Jesus could not come onto the scene until everything that had to be said was said. For example, it had to be prophesied that Jesus would be born of a virgin. That was critical because Jesus would not be just a good man—Jesus was God manifest in the flesh. Through Mary, Jesus received a physical body, but it was the blood of God the Father that flowed through Him. He was a God-man.
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
When Mary asked, “How’s this going to happen?”, she wasn’t questioning the possibility, just the how. The angel said the Word of God is the incorruptible seed: “All of the words spoken over four thousand years, through hundreds of people, are going to conceive in you.” First Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
The Greek word for “seed” in this scripture is spora and refers to the seed of a man. The Virgin Birth of Jesus was completely natural in every respect except one: it was not the seed of a man. The seed was the Word of God. The Word became flesh! All that had been prophesied about Jesus became the spora, or the seed.
God’s Word is alive. His Word is health unto all your flesh and life to those who find it (Prov. 4:22). He sent His Word to heal you and deliver you from destruction. And for those who will place His words in their hearts and allow those seeds to conceive, they will in time see the manifestation of what they believe and speak.
