“The Seeds of God are the Promises of God” Meaning

What does it mean when someone says “The seeds of God are the promises of God?

Christ is the promised Seed of God but we, who have become joint-heirs with Christ have also become the seeds of God (John 1: 12). This is the meaning of “The Seeds of God are the Promises of God”.

When someone asks you to explain the meaning of the Seeds of God are the promises of God; just say this. Christ is the promised Seed of God but we, who have become joint-heirs with Christ have also become the seeds of God (John 1: 12).

Unless we are not making reference to the promise of God to Abraham and his “seed” in Galatians 3:16, the phrase is incorrect. But in the other sense, it is correct.


Christ is the Seed of God and He is the Promise of God. In the right sense, the phrase should be “The Seed of God is the promise of God”.

The Seeds of God are the Promises of God meaning

To make the ambiguity of this phrase become lesser, permit me to use different synonyms for the keywords. We can change “The Seeds of God is the Promises of God” as “The Children of God are the Promises of God“.

There is Power in the Tongue. Declare these Words of God Every day and See His Power

Before I will go further to exray this phrase in the context of Galatians 3:16, and other Bible passages, let me also say here that the seeds which are in plural form can be said to be the words of God.

The words of God are seeds. In them are many promises. The good ground which receives the seed of the sower in Matthew 13: 23 bears fruits in some hundredfold.

Galatians 3:16 in Different Bible Versions

**Galatians 3:16, NIV:  “The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed.” Scripture does not say ‘and to seeds,’ meaning many people, but ‘and to your seed,’ meaning one person, who is Christ.”

**Galatians 3:16, ESV: “Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.”

**Galatians 3:16, KJV: “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”

**Galatians 3:16, NASB: “Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as one would in referring to many, but rather as in referring to one, ‘And to your seed,’ that is, Christ.”

**Galatians 3:16, NLT: “God gave the promises to Abraham and his child. And notice that the Scripture doesn’t say ‘to his children,’ as if it meant many descendants. Rather, it says ‘to his child’–and that, of course, means Christ.”


**Galatians 3:16, CSB: “Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say “and to seeds,” as though referring to many, but referring to one, and to your seed, who is Christ.”

The Seeds of God are the Promises of God in Gal. 3:16

In the paragraphs above, we have established that Christ alone is the Seed of God and the Promise of God to Abraham as seen in Galatian 3: 16. Christ is the seed of God, the promise of God. But we are also the Seeds of God.
John 1: 12 says; “as many that receive Him, to them He gave the power to become the children of God. The children of God can also mean the Seeds of God.
So, we can say here that Christ is the Seed of God, and we, having received and accepted Him have been given the power to become the seeds (children) of God.
Christ is the channel. ” Now to Abraham and his Seed were the Promises made ( to all those who are brought into Salvation by faith in Christ).  He said not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of One, And to your Seed, which is Christ.” Gal. 3: 16.


He is the only way through which one can be qualified to be identified as the seeds of God. As with the co-Heirs to the Kingdom.
He is the Seed of God. Christ is the Heir to the Kingdom.
We are also the Seeds of God and the heirs of God. This has been made possible because we have been brought into Salvation by faith in Christ Jesus.

The summary

Christ is the Seed of God Promised by God. To say; “The seeds of God are the Promises of the God”, we must see Christ in between.
His death and resurrection have qualified mankind to co-share His inheritance with God the father. We too who have received Him are the seeds of God as he promised in John 1 verse 12.
We are the children of God through Christ. Abraham, Jesus, and our redemption are the Promises of God.
