    The Real Seed

    Abraham was at one time instructed that the real Seed, through whom all the nations were to be blessed, though of his posterity after the flesh, would in reality be the Christ of God; for the Lord said not to him, “Seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy Seed, which is Christ.” 16Galatians 3:16. The apostle Paul said of this, “The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.” 17Galatians 3:8. The promise to Abraham was renewed to Isaac and his seed, 19Genesis 28:13. and also to Jacob.GSAM 42.4

    As Jacob had twelve sons, the question would now naturally arise, Through which is the lineage of the true Seed to be traced? In the inspired testimony borne by Jacob respecting his sons, the case was settled: “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” 20Genesis 49:10. In fulfillment of this it is well to note here that the Israelites, although subject to the various nations, were permitted to have their Sanhedrin. Thus Judah—the tribe of the Jews so named from Judah—had some voice in their government until Shiloh (Christ) did actually come.GSAM 42.5
