The “Sand” and “Star” Seed of Abraham

There are some of the redeemed who are going to inherit the earth. Some are going to walk the streets of the New Jerusalem. And some who are seated with Christ, far above all principalities and powers, shall reign with Him in the heavenlies. Some are going to form the kingdom of priests upon the earth. Some will constitute the bride of the Lamb. Some will be the Body of Christ, with Christ as the Head. Some are going to constitute the “sand” seed of Abraham, others the “star” seed. Some have their calling from before the overthrow of the world and reign with Christ in the heavenlies. The apostle Paul tells us that “the dispensation of God which is given to me for you” constitutes the glorious fact of “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:25-27).

Free from Man’s Examination

Paul tells us in I Corinthians 4:3 that it was “a very small thing” that he should be judged by man. The Concordant Version says,

Now to me it is the least trifle that I may be being examined by you or by man’s day.

Others may choose to “examine” or judge us. However sincere their actions may be, or appear to be, we are not to be affected by this. When we, like Paul, walk before the Lord, their verdicts will be “the least trifle” in our sight, and in God’s. In fact, if we are concerned about their opinions, it will have a hindering effect on God’s work in us.

… Am I seeking to please men? If I still pleased men, I were not a slave of Christ (Galatians 1:10).

Thus, we have Paul’s instruction,

Let no one, then, be judging you … (Colossians 2:16)
