Many people say that we cannot know what is in the Father’s heart; we cannot know His plan and purpose. Ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature, namely, His eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. Rom.1:20.
We look around to the things that have been made, and what do we see? We see nature. We see the grass grow, come to maturity, produce seed, and reproduce itself. We see animals of all shapes and sizes—mammals, reptiles, insects, fish, et al—and we see them grow, come to maturity, produce seed and offspring and thereby reproduce themselves. We see human beings grow up, come to maturity, and reproduce themselves. It is built into every living thing; if it lives, it strives to reproduce itself.
And every living thing reproduces another that very closely resembles itself. Oak trees and their acorns produce oak saplings. Basset hounds give birth to litters of long-eared pups, and humans give birth to humans. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so…Let the waters bring forth abundantly.. Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. Gen.1:11, 20, 24.
We can look at the creation and see what God is doing. In nature everything is reproducing itself. We can know what God is about, what His plan and purpose is by simply observing nature. The revelation is that God is reproducing Himself, too. He has the same longing to reproduce Himself that all of his creation does. He created the earth and every living thing in it to have strong instincts and desires to procreate. Nature would mirror His desire to have offspring, just like Him.
Reproducing Himself is the business He is about. That is why He created the worlds, the heavens and earth and everything in them. They are all just an environment for Him to reproduce Himself. He is the Seed and each seed bears its own kind.
He is also the Gardener who sows Himself (the Seed/the Word) into the earth. But it is a special earth that He is sowing the Seed/Word into. That special garden is the earthly human bodies who respond to His choosing them for this purpose. The seed is the word of God. Lk. 8:11. The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63.
