“Man can become regenerated, and thus save his soul, which is sown in corruption, so that it may be raised in corruption.
We can compare speech with the operations of the processes of the planets. ‘The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his handiwork.
‘Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
‘There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.’
The heavens, or the planets in the heavens, have their own particular influence, operation or speech, upon this planet of ours. We admit that the moon rules the tides, that without the sun we could not live, so why deny the influence of the other planets.
Thus we see, from the foregoing, that word, and voice or speech are two entirely different things, and that John meant the precious creative substance when he spoke of the ‘WORD.’
‘Now this is the parable. The SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD:’ Luke 8:11.
“Seed, word” and ‘God,’ are all synonyms of one and the same thing the wonderful creative substance, the universal esse, from which all things are brought forth, and in which all things are. The Scriptures, or allegories and parables of the Bible, are the only writings that give us information as to what the Word of God is. Therefore, in this book, we will quote what is written there in regard to it.
Seed is the cause, the nucleus of everything, therefore a seed is ‘the beginning’ In the beginning was the WORD.”
The just read excerpt came from the book God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 43, which was written by Dr. George Carey.
