A parable of the sower & seed

Filed under: God, Jesus, Spirit, life — the3rdone @ 1:36 अपराह्न

Be listening. Give attention to this. The sower went out to sow. And it came to pass that while he was sowing, some indeed fell alongside the road, and the birds came and ate it up. And other seed of the same kind fell upon ground full of rocks, where it did not have much earth, and immediately it sprang up because it did not have depth of earth. And when the sun arose it was burnt with the heat, and because it did not possess rootage, it dried up. And other seed of the same kind fell into the midst of thorns, and the thorns sprang up and utterly choked it, and it did not give fruit. And other seeds of the same kind fell on ground that was good, and they kept on yielding fruit, growing up and increasing, and they kept on bearing, some up to thirty, and some to sixty and some to one hundred. And He was saying, He who has ears to be hearing, let him be hearing.

The secret counsels of God which are hidden from the ungodly but when reaveled to the godly, are understood by them. The mystery is not in the fact that they are difficult of interpretation, but that they are impossible of interpretation until their meaning is revealed, when they become plain. It is not given to all to know the mysteries of the kingdom but to those chosen before of God, so as to be a permanent possession. The use of parables was a penalty for judicial blindness on those who will not see…the parables are thus a condemnation on the wilfully blind and hostile, while a guide and blessing to the enlightened. Light resisted, blinds. Some do not want the truth. Thus rejecting the truth, they in a sense blind themselves. The parables are so adjusted that they blind the one who wickedly rejects the truth, and enlighten the one who desires it.
