Seed-Faith Offering


One of the period that a farmers long for is the harvest period, to harvest that which he has planted. Before the harvesting the period the farmer must put into place the following: Land preparation, Determination of seed nature and kind, watering and the waiting period. Seed defined. A defined can be defined as any substances capable of germinating or increased when planted. Seed as a substance here can be big or small and its nature or form in our teaching context can be services, material things, of monetary value or encouragement. So our teaching will be based on biblical principles with focus on agricultural system of seedling.

One of the ways of getting our needs met spiritually, physically, financially… and in every area of our life is by Seed-faith offering. It answers to our needs; it became increasingly obvious that Seed-Faith is in fact Seed- Faith living to a constant and continuous way of life to create an atmosphere of miracles. One of the ways our prayer can be answered is through Seed-Faith offering. Seed-Faith is biblical and demonstrated principles God established with His people. They are repeated and strengthened by Jesus throughout His Life and teachings. The writers of the New Testament are abundantly clear on establishing the value and worth of these principles and how they directly affect our lives, depending on our obedience.

One thing should be noted here. When something is a principle, you don’t pray or fast to receive the reward or the blessings. Principle only answers to it obedience.

Reading from Philippians 4:13-19 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress. Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, hen I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only.

For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities; not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account, I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, am acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God. And God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory”

Amen! Here’s where many Christian miss it. In considering the above scriptural verses, many Christians jump directly to verse13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, to verse 19, My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory… leaving out all the verses in between. They miss verses 14, 15, 16, 17, and18 which tells how they can have that fruit abounds to their heavenly account. This verse clearly explained that without giving, there can be no receiving. But once giving has taken place, receiving a harvest can be on the end of every seed sown.

In God’s promises, to every blessings of God there are always prerequisites to fulfill. Let’s take for example:

1. “This Book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it, For then you will make your way prosperous and the you will have good success- Joshua 1:8″ In this Bible verse, it talked about us being prosperous and having good success, which I believe is the desire of every believer. But note the word before the THEN “This Book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it”

That means for you to have good success you must meditate on the Word of God.

2. “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth….Deuteronomy 8:18a

The Bible says “The Lord has given us the power to get wealth” then what is the problem with poverty. The problem is in that God’s people did not remember God as stated in the verse above. For you to get power to make wealth, He said “And you shall remember the Lord your God” What then is the remembrance? He Said “Remember me with your tithe and offering so that there might be Food in my store house.” As you can see now, to every promises of God there are always prerequisites to fulfill, guided by divine principles, do you want your ways to be prosperous then study the word, do you want to have good success then study the Word. Do you want to get power to make wealth then pay your tithe and your offerings?

I tell you, these are divine principles, it doesn’t answer to fasting and praying only to obedience.


As in Agriculture, it is very important will prepare our land so also in our Christian Faith. We must recognize God as the Sources of every thing. In John 15:5 “…He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing“. The problem with many believers is that the source did not recognize them, which it’s, not abiding in the source. It is true that a river that forget it source will dry up; so in preparing our self for the abundance of miracle, we must abide in the Source and this happens by giving our life to Christ Jesus.

God is the only source to every thing in Christ Jesus.

Living in the natural world, it is easy to get the idea that people are the source of supply. This is also where most people miss out the trust of God’s Word. God often uses people as the means of supply, but God Himself is THE SOURCE. People are mere instruments. By looking to God as the only Source, you can be confident, positive, and expectant that He can provide every thing you need.

The Difference between “Source” and the “Instrument”

The tree is the source, not the branch where the fruit comes from, but the fruit actually provides the needs of a farmer. But if the tree is not properly taken care of, the branch cannot grow on it own to produce fruit.

In a story of was told of a farmer: He grew apples, peaches, cherries, pears and several other fruit. But his pride and joy was big luscious Elberta peaches. After a while, the beautiful fruit-growing trees only remain one or two of the prized Elberta peach trees and they are stubby and produced only a few small peaches. In the Farmer reply to the cause of this, he said “As long as the fruit came each season, I was satisfied to leave the trees alone. They bore fruit, and I thought my source was the fruit. The fruit fed my family. We sold thousands of bushels and used the money. The

fruit became everything to us. It was my business. I depended upon it. Everything I did I judged according to how it related to the fruit. Then one year the crop was not so good. The next year it was less. That was then I stopped thinking about the fruit and started looking to the trees. Before, I had paid little attention to the trees. I cut the weeds and did a little plowing down the row. Then I woke up and realized that the peaches and the other fruit were just what they-fruit of the tree” The Source was the tree. If I took care of the tree, the fruit would grow. By neglecting the source, the fruit dried up. A branch cannot survive without the Vine; Jesus is the vine and men (us), the branches. When we take care of the tree, (the vine) the fruit will take care of itself. When we are rightly connected to the Source, He takes care of all our needs. Then we can boldly say the Lord shall provide all my needs

2. In determining the kind of Seed you are planting: Like a said, a seed is a substance that is capable of germinating or increasing, the size now is of no important. In every time you sow a seed, don’t only plant the seed, but hold it and attach your faith to it. The Bible according to Philippians 4:18 call our seed a sacrifice that is acceptable and well-pleasing to God. So therefore, if it’s well-pleasing, you must be full of faith as you sow it. Here is where seed, now attached to your faith, becomes the miracle of Seed-Faith!

So before you ever sow your seed, begin to

<!–[if !supportLists]–>1. <!–[endif]–>Identify the purpose of the seed you’re about or sowing. Why are you sowing the seed?

<!–[if !supportLists]–>2. <!–[endif]–>Ask God about the things you’re believing Him for. Is it according to His word?

<!–[if !supportLists]–>3. <!–[endif]–>Say it out loud. Are you speaking out words of faith that are so important?

<!–[if !supportLists]–>4. <!–[endif]–>Establish a value for your seed so that your faith will cover what you’re believing for- asking God where to sow and how much to sow, according to His choice.

Don’t give out of obligation or of necessities or of duty. Give my divine conviction.

Yes, there’s always a watering and the weeding period, but good seed yields a good harvest. Bad seed yields a bad harvest. Neglected seed yields a neglected harvest. And no seed yields No harvest! Turn your life over to God and look directly to Him as the Source of your supply. When you really love God and trust in Him as your source, you give HIM FIRST. Your giving becomes seed for Him to help others and to multiply back in form of your need. Giving becomes your LIFE-STYLE as it was Jesus’.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>1. <!–[endif]–>God is your Source, and always giving Him first becomes a SEED of your FAITH (Philippians 4:13-19)

<!–[if !supportLists]–>2. <!–[endif]–>Plant your seed unto God and attach your faith to it as an act of seed-faith giving. It is on the basic of SEED-FAITH that you can expect a miracle!


· Why do we sow?

· Right ground to sow

· Faith attached seed.

The problem of many believers is that we do not want to sow, but want to harvest. They concentrate on the harvest not knowing that there is no harvest without a seed sowing. When we sow a seed, there is always a waiting period before the harvest called ‘the trial or preparation period’, but the faithfulness of God will not allow it to overcome us, 1Cor. 10:19.The Bible says that your fruit may abound to your account. We ‘give’ not to impress God or to answer our prayers but for us to enjoy the blessing that comes from our seed. He describes our seed as an odour of sweet smell, acceptable and well pleasing to God. Nothing is gotten on a platform of gold, to everything we receive there are sacrifice and price to pay, our seed.

– We give to receive

– We give to make fruit abound to our heavenly account.

– We give to enjoy heavenly harvest.

– We give so that our seed can speak for us in time of need.

– We give to connect to our divine blessings.


It is necessary for us to know the kind of ground to sow and the kind of seed to sow. He who sow in a fertile ground will produce more fruit, he who sow bountifully will reap bountifully.

Where do I sow?

– To the household of God.

– To men of God who has being a blessing to you.

– To promote the gospel.

– To the Need of the gospel and brethren.

Remember that your services, love, encouragement, support, material value, money etc are also forms of Seed- Faith Offering.

Don’t just sow, consider the ground to which you are sowing to and the kind of seed you sowing. Seed is an answer to our tomorrow. It speaks in the time of need and want. Seed sowing is a divine principle to enjoy God’s abundances blessing, seed is an answer to needs of life. When you sow a seed attached to your faith; it becomes a SEED-FAITH. That’s, always attached a need to your seed back up with your faith. When you did, then you can expect a miracle.

Jesus said, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you (Luke 11:9). Paul said: I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6). God gives the INCREASE! The increase, or the miracle, is there. Expect it so you can recognize it when God sends it. It can come to you in form of the answer to your need or request. This makes you look forward to every new day as the most important day in your life. Why” Because you know God is your Source. Like Jesus, giving is becoming your life-style. Therefore, you can expect a miracle- in the form of the answer to your need- every day. This creates a joy and an opportunity in your new way of giving as a way of life.
