Chapter 19 of the book Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality
The Master, the Creator has a stupendous and glorious plan to reproduce Himself. He has had His prophets and righteous men write about it down through the ages. But He has kept it secret by speaking about it in parables. In order to comprehend His purpose, we must first understand His concept of the use of parables.
Man’s wisdom says that parables are nice little stories that make it easier for us to understand what God is teaching us—that they are down to earth little illustrations of spiritual matters. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The first thing that we must realize is that parables contain the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. They conceal the secrets of God that He has hidden since He created the heavens and the earth. We enter into an inner sanctum when we go to the parables, for they are the “dark sayings,” things that He only reveals to those who are in awe of Him. These are only for His chosen people to whom He wants to reveal His secrets unto. “For a man can receive nothing except it be given to him from heaven.”
Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to him that has will more be given (knowledge of the secrets),and he will have abundance; but from him who has not (the secrets), even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, nor do they understand…but blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.” Mt. 13:10-13, 16, RSV.
Parables are His “dark sayings.” The word “dark” is translated from the Hebrew word, chiydah, #2420 in Strong’s, meaning a “puzzle: hence a trick, conundrum, sententious maxim: dark saying (sentence, speech), hard question, proverb, riddle.” Puzzles, riddles, and conundrums are deliberately thought out by the speaker. They are purposely spoken. And so it is with His parables. All these things spake Yahshua unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. Mt. 13:34-35, Psm. 78:2.
He spoke in parables so that they who were meant to comprehend would, and they who were not meant to, would not. He spoke in parables and deliberately clouded the meaning so that the mysteries of the kingdom, of his governing human flesh by His Spirit, of His plans of reproducing Himself, would only be comprehended by those to whom He had given it. He spoke in these riddles, deliberately clouding the meaning, so that only certain pre-determined chosen people that He foreknew could see His plan and ultimately respond. KWH
