I think the word god (no pun intended) and the feeling of 'god' is a symbol and place holder for an energy or consciousness that we don't yet have the scientific capabilities to indentify. Surely the incredible world around us has MUCH more we havn't found yet--and personally I'm a believer in some kind of creator--will have a way, eventually, to measure and examine.
...a seed is the word of god...well if god is a place holder or consciouness that was capable of creating a physical realm or reality that gave me the ability to express these thoughts on this page to you then that would mean my mind is made in the word/image/thoughts/feelings of god. The word of god is simply the very fabric, at its most fundamental level, that holds and keeps this world together--and that you and me are not outside of that system, because our very existence is proof that thats an impossibility. No heaven, no hell except the ones our mind (words of gods) creates for ourselves!
Then agian I'm prolly wrong...

that should do it, I have received through synchs particular bible quotes plus more! I am not a christian, but for some lovely reason am getting religious synchs at the moment....I knew this quote would be something to do with manifesting, and the anology of the seed is perfect....
God's Word Is A Seed
Most people expect God's Word to work like a stick of dynamite -- but God's Word is like a seed. We know because of what Jesus said.
LUKE 8:11 NKJ
11 "Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
The Holy Spirit, through Peter, also said God's Word is a seed.
1 PETER 1:23 NKJ
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
God's Word is alive. Just like a seed -- the Bible is full of unseen life.
JOHN 6:63 NKJ
63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Jesus said His words are alive. They contain life. The words in your Bible may look lifeless and powerless. Seeds do, too. But they are not without life or power.
In Mark 4:30-31, Jesus explained that the kingdom of God works like a seed. So, if we are to understand God's kingdom and how He operates, we need to understand seeds.
* A seed is alive: it contains life.
Your physical senses are incapable of judging whether a seed is alive or not. You cannot see, feel, hear, smell, or taste the life in a seed. There is only one way to prove a seed is alive -- plant it.
* A seed does nothing until planted.
Seeds do not grow sitting in a sack on your shelf. They must be planted in the proper place.
If you desire the Word of God to produce in your life, you must decide to plant the Word in your heart and mind.
The best way to plant the seed of God's Word in your life is by speaking the Word. Hearing others speak the Word is good -- but will not produce as bountiful a harvest as speaking the Word yourself.
Speaking God's Word with your mouth is essential. As we speak God's Word we are planting the seed in our heart for the harvest of results we desire.
ROMANS 10:10 NKJ
10 For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.
Whatever you need to be saved or delivered from, confession (what you say) is essential.
* A seed is much smaller than the plant it produces.
The problem you face may seem huge. In comparison, a scripture may seem very small. But when planted, that Word will grow in you and overcome the problem.
* A seed always produces after its kind.
GALATIANS 6:7 NKJ
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Whatever you need, or desire, find scriptures relating to that. Then plant those scriptures inside you in abundance. Those seeds will grow up and produce a harvest of what you need or desire.
* A seed is powerful.
As a seed begins to grow, it will push up dirt, rocks, etc. Whatever the obstacles are, God's Word planted in your heart will push them out of the way.
* A seed begins its growth in secret (underground).
The only way to tell if a seed is growing is to dig it up, or wait for a plant to appear. If you dig up a seed, you may kill it.
* A seed takes time to produce.
No one expects a seed to produce a harvest the same day that seed is planted.
Sometimes the Word of God seems to spring up and bear fruit immediately. Yet, if we knew the details, we would understand that the fruit of the Word grew in that person's life over time.
* A seed is persistent.
A seed never gives up, but works day and night. Even when you are sleeping, the seed you have planted is working to grow and express itself in a fruitful harvest.
* A seed is not affected by other seeds.
Whatever happens to other seeds does not make any difference to a specific seed. Each seed sticks to its own task. One wheat seed planted in a corn field will still produce wheat. Seed does not become discouraged, or quit, even if other seeds die.
* A seed will stop growing without nourishment.
Planting a seed is not enough to assure a harvest. Seed must be protected and taken care of until harvest time. A seed which is dug up, or not watered, will not produce.
* More seeds planted produce a larger harvest.

"This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of God. Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved.
Those on the rocky ground are the ones who, when thy hear, receive the word with joy, but they have no root, they believe only for a time and fall away in time of trial. As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have heard, but as they go long, they are shocked by the anxieties and riches and pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit. But as for the seed that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word, embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance."

it also tells me, that if seeds are gods word, then what seeds do we have? because if we have seeds according to that quote, they are as powerful as if god ask for them himself...
manifesting asks for a faith that is consistent....it asks you to plant seeds of gods words in your heart, so deep that you do not waver in the wind....so if you have only half planted your seeds, then life and its experiences has the ability to kill your intentions and knock your faith.... ....I would also say that it is not the devil per say that takes it away, but our own type of devil, our ego.......
