The plan that the Father hath not planted

The plan that the Father hath not planted, comes from the corruptible seed of Adam. This seed is not subject to the will of God. It is an enmity seed and all that it is born, can not see the kingdom of God “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Rom 8: 7).


On one occasion Jesus stood in the synagogue in Nazareth, and gave him the book of Isaiah. When He opened the book, he found the text that read, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the poor hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and sight restoration. to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord … “(Luke 4:18 -19).

That’s when Jesus said to the people: “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your ears” (Luke 4:21).

When Jesus was among the men, the Spirit of God was upon Him (John 10:30). Jesus’ mission was to bring good news to the poor in spirit (Matthew 5: 3). He was sent to comfort the brokenhearted. Jesus presented himself as freedom for the captives of sin. The blind, Jesus is the Light. The oppressed by sin find freedom in Christ. Jesus inaugurated the time (year) when men are acceptable before God (2 Corinthians 6: 2).

Isaiah prophesied that after Jesus fulfill its mission, the men would be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that God might be glorified.

Through the work accomplished by Christ, men would be called justice plantation, ie “the Father planted plants”.

The word of God (the gospel) is the seed that gives rise to the ‘trees of righteousness’ “This, then, is the parable: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8:11). Plants planted the Father, comes from the incorruptible seed, which is the word of God (1 Peter 1:23).

Christ is the sower, and all those who preach the good news of the gospel “The sower soweth the word” (Mark 4:14). But to sow the word, you must be born of the will of God. You need to be empowered to be made a child of God (John 1:12 -13).

There is no way the word of the gospel if man is not born of her. In other words, it is only possible for man to produce the fruit of lips that profess Christ, after it is generated word.

That is why the gospel is the power of God to everyone who believes (1 Cor 1:18; 1 Corinthians 2: 5; Rom 1:16). The gospel is power from God who gives life to men.

Jesus came “… to restore sight to the blind …”, but the Pharisees and scribes believed they had perfect vision of heavenly things. The mission that Jesus came to realize, was not observed in those who believed they had a perfect view “And Jesus said unto him: I came into this world for judgment, so that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind. And some of the Pharisees who were with him heard it, they said unto him, are we blind Jesus said to them: If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say: we see; therefore your sin remains “(John 9:39 -41).

Jesus came for the sick, but the religious believed themselves are: “When Jesus heard this, said to them, not the healthy who need a physician, but rather those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but , but sinners to repentance “(Mark 2:17).

But why the Pharisees and scribes who were considered are? Because they believed that they were children of God, being descendants of Abraham “They said, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God” (John 8:41).

The Pharisees and scribes were correct? They were the children of God by being descendants of Abraham? Do Not! The children of God come from the same faith of Abraham, the believer and not corruptible seed in the patriarch’s descent “So then they that are of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham” (Gal 3: 9).

For men be blessed as faithful Abraham, that is, children of the Most High, one must believe in the word of God as Abraham believed and that it will be for righteousness. God is no respecter of persons and all who believe as Abraham believed, are justified by His grace.

When Abraham believed God, He became justice of tree, plant the Lord planted (justified). However, their fleshly descendants did not reach the same condition before God.

Being the son of Abraham is to practice the works of Abraham, that is, to believe in God’s word. You receive the incorruptible seed in the heart. This is the work of God: believe in the one He sent (John 8:39; John 6:29). Abraham performed the works of God because he believed in God, but their descendants, entrusted in the flesh, that is, in its origin, did not believe that God sent, and therefore did not believe in God.

The Pharisees and scribes were descendants of Abraham (John 8:37), but they were not children of God. They thought it was enough to profess to be descendants of Abraham to reach the divine sonship (Mt 3: 9).

The Pharisees and scribes were not plants planted by God (did not believe in Christ) and, therefore, would be torn (likely the judgment of God) “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in name of the only begotten Son of God “(John 3:18).

We know that those who do not believe in Christ, are plants not planted by the Father, and those who believe, are trees of righteousness, plants belonging to the Father.

But when and where the wicked men were planted, since all men are plants?

The Jews considered that they were children of God by being descendants of Abraham in the flesh. They forgot that Abraham received the divine sonship when he believed God, and it was imputed for justice.

Although the Jews were descendants of Abraham according to the flesh, however, were still children of Adam, as a child of God is only possible through faith.

That is, all men born in Adam are plants that the Father hath not planted. There are trees of righteousness, and therefore is not planting of the Lord!

Abraham was a descendant of Adam, the flesh, and generated carnal children. Their descendants were conceived in sin, just as all men are conceived “Behold was shapen in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me” (Ps 51: 5).

Through Abraham’s faith became a plant that the Father planted because it was justified by God. But their descendants continued to be generated according to the flesh of Abraham, which refers to Adam.

Although Abraham has reached the condition of spiritual man to trust in the promise of God, however, he continued to bear children after the flesh, corruptible seed participants of Adam.

Only those born of God are created spiritual men. Abraham was the son of God by faith and only those who believe in God as faithful Abraham, are generated from him.

Humanity is a crop from a corruptible seed (which will not remain forever), the seed of Adam. Every man who comes into the world are plants that the Father hath not planted and that is why the Bible says that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

For born of the flesh, the man of will and blood, men come into the world under condemnation. Only after being born again, according to the will of God (Spirit) and the incorruptible seed (water), man becomes planting of the Lord.

“And all your people will be righteous, shall inherit the land for ever; the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified” (Isaiah 60:21).

To be born again, you need to be planted by God (branch of my planting). The new creature in Christ is generated exclusively the work of God’s hands. There is no man actively participate in the new birth, as it is glory to God alone belongs.

For man to be planted by the Father one must believe in the word of God that says, “Look unto me and be saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22 ). Who looks at the author and finisher of our faith is because he believed that only God can save him.

Who does not believe in the only begotten Son of God makes it look, and suffer the consequences of sin in the same way that the bitten by snakes in the desert that looked not (believe) to the brazen serpent suffer, at the time the Hebrews crossed the desert the road to the promised land!

The plan that the Father hath not planted, comes from the corruptible seed of Adam. This seed is not subject to the will of God. It is an enmity seed and all that it is born, can not see the kingdom of God “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be (Rom 8: 7).

Plants that were not planted by God will be uprooted because not stand the judgment: “Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous” (Psalm 1: 5).

In this respect, predicted John the Baptist: “And now also the ax is laid to the root of the trees: every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” (Matthew 3:10).

While the Pharisees and scribes continued professing that they were children of God by being descendants of Abraham, would be producing bad fruit, which indicated that they were not the Father planted plants and subject to the wrath of God.

Only trees that produce good fruit, that is, who profess the nearness of the kingdom of heaven (Christ) will remain forever (Hebrews 13:15). There will be cut, for God himself planted them, and will forever be works of God’s hands. Shoots (plants) planted by God.
