Explore the foundational teachings of the Good Seed, delving into the Hebrew roots of Christianity with renowned teacher Bill Cloud. Through four illuminating sessions, you’ll unravel the profound connections between the natural and spiritual realms, understanding the significance of sowing and reaping in the Kingdom of God. Discover the timeless enmity between the seeds of God and the adversary, equipping yourself with discernment to distinguish truth from deception in Scripture.

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15:46 King James Version)

Though Paul was speaking of the Messiah in this passage, the principle of natural laws teaching spiritual issues is prevalent throughout the Scripture. One such natural law found in the Torah is the law of Kil’ayim, or mingling species. Specifically God instructed the children of Israel not to “sow your field with mingled seed” (Levicitucs 19:19).

For centuries, rabbis have suggested that the reason for this command is unknown. Yet, in Enmity Between the Seeds Bill Cloud shows the spiritual principle of this natural law. In the beginning, God placed enmity between the woman’s seed and the seed of the serpent, thereby ensuring that there would be no mingling between the two. Yet, as Bill will show, the serpent has been trying to do exactly that, and moreover, has attempted throughout history to reverse the decision made against him in Genesis 3 by crushing the head of the woman’s seed.

About the Instructor

Bill Cloud

Bill Cloud, an author, speaker, and founder of Shoreshim Ministries, embarked on a transformative journey from a traditional Christian upbringing in South Georgia to a profound connection with the Jewish roots of his faith. In 1990, a pilgrimage to Israel for the Feast of Tabernacles sparked a deep love for the land, people, and language, marking a pivotal moment in his spiritual exploration. Inspired, Bill delved into Hebrew studies under a local rabbi, dedicating countless hours to understanding not only the language but also the Hebraic foundations of Christianity.

This linguistic pursuit reflects Bill’s commitment to unlocking hidden treasures within the Word of God and sharing these insights with fellow believers. His extensive study illuminates the prophetic elements of Scripture, leading to the creation of various media resources and teachings on prophetic themes and the often-overlooked Hebraic heritage. As a featured speaker at national venues and alongside renowned teachers, including Perry Stone, Jonathan Cahn, Joel Richardson, and Hal Lindsay, Bill’s impactful presence extends to television broadcasts on Christian networks globally.

Bill, together with his wife Beth and their children, initiated a fellowship in Cleveland, TN, reflecting their dedication to fostering spiritual communities. Through Shoreshim Ministries, the Cloud family endeavors to reintroduce Christians to the Jewish Yeshua and educate believers on the Hebraic roots of their faith. This mission empowers disciples to accurately interpret end-time events and discern their role in these critical last days.
