God’s Patience Seen in “The Tares in the Field”

So, “patience” is “endurance.”  And this enduring of all things by the elect is part of the fruit of the presence of the Spirit of agape love in our hearts because this godlike love endures all things (I Cor. 13: 7).  It is the height of godliness, which is the road we are to travel as God’s sons and daughters.

This way to sonship is a lonely road, fraught with danger and made treacherous by its highwaymen.

But it is as the Creator planned it.  It has all come out of His wisdom-filled mind.  He knows it is an arduous path, for He first trod it.  Now I am talking about the Father in the beginning, that wonderful illusive invisible Spirit, as well as His Son, the “expressed image of the invisible God.”

The Father knows of the treachery on this earth, for He wrote the play that way.  He is the Great Playwright that created characters antagonistic to His offspring’s destiny.  They are formed to be foils of His sons and daughters.  They withstand the children of God, thus strengthening and forging within these future monarchs the finer spiritual character of their Father.

For His children are destined to rule with Him forever.  However, they will acquire the necessary regal attributes by overcoming the struggles imposed on them by their adversaries, the “vessels of wrath.  “What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory(Romans 9: 22-23).

The “Vessels of Wrath”

God is enduring with much patience evilness and wickedness right now.  He is enduring “vessels of wrath.”  And why is it important for us to know about these people?  For they will be our antagonists in the play that we have been called to audition for–the play called Sonship.  Christ, as its Author, has in its pages outlined the way to become the veritable offspring of God, His princes and princesses.  But God in His infinite wisdom knows that to be like Him, we must go through the fire kindled by our enemies.

These antagonists are explained in the “Parable of the Tares in the

Field.”  This is a secret that God is now handing down to His elect, His chosen “vessels of mercy.”  With this information we can understand much better what our parts entail, and how to live and play them.

The parable reads: “Another parable He put forth to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.

“So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’

“He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’

“The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’

“But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn” (Matthew 13: 24-30).

Later Christ explains it: “He answered and said to them: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked [one].  The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.

“Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear” (vs. 37-43 NKJV).

We must remember that the parables are not nice little stories to make it easier for the masses to understand.  To the contrary, they are the “dark sayings” of God, spoken to deliberately cloud the secret “mysteries of the kingdom of heaven” for those not suppose to know (Mt. 13: 10-15).

Christ says that the “tares” are “the sons of the wicked one.”  They are placed in the earth by “the enemy,” which is the devil.

The reason that this and other parables don’t make sense to most is because of the old leaven concepts they read into them.  Old error-filled doctrines are like a dirty out of focus lens that the script is being read through.  Distortion and confusion prevail.  For example, we have the false doctrine that the devil and the fall of man is a great laboratory experiment of God that went wrong.  Hogwash.  A great lie.  God is Sovereign and All Powerful or He is not.  He is, and He created darkness and evil for His own purposes (Isaiah 45: 7).

Now, seen through this truth, we can begin to understand the parable of the tares.  God has ordained “sons of the wicked one” (the tares) to not only exist, but also be an active adversarial hindrance to the future sons and daughters of God (the wheat).  And they are to “grow together till the time of the harvest.”  At God’s word, they continue to live and do what He wants them to do.  He could have had the angels rip them up and burn them.  But He is telling us that you don’t want to disturb the maturation process of the wheat.  For if you pull the tares up, you will adversely affect the growth of the wheat.  The root system of the wheat will be disturbed, and the sap will be hindered from coming up.

God is saying, To grow up into Me, you must let the wheat (children of God) grow up, side by side, with the tares (the evil children of Satan).

The truth is that we need these tares and the sufferings that they provide for us to become more like God.  This is a precursor of adding the next addition–godliness.

God is enduring all this evil in order to reproduce Himself in us.  He endures the evil against Him and His plan, for He knows that the enemy will make His offspring stronger.  Now, to be like Him, we must endure, as well.  He is enduring, and we must endure, which is adding patience.  This is God’s fellowship that we are to enter; it is “the fellowship of His sufferings” (Phil. 3: 10).     Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Parable of the Sower–The Key to Unlocking All of the Parables

Chapter 20 of  Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality

The Master said that one parable is the key that solves the puzzle, that answers the riddles of the other parables. By understanding this one, all the other parables would yield their secrets. That parable is the parable of the sower. And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? And how then will ye know all parables? Mark 4:13.

Matthew 13:1-9

“The same day went Yahshua out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

 “And he spake unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; and when he sowed, Some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

“And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them; but other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirty-fold. Who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Three Levels of Spiritual Fruit Production

The Master speaks no idle words. He mentions three levels of fruit production—thirty, sixty and one hundred fold. Those who do receive the word, the seed, will produce fruit for Him at different levels of spiritual growth. We know that this 30, 60, and 100 fold He mentions is spiritual because “the words He speaks are Spirit and they are life.” All three of these fruit bearers are in His fold, in His kingdom. They are all “good ground,” with a “good and honest heart.” They are in, and yet, some bear more fruit than others. That is what it says.

First, He gives His understanding to some, and to some He does not. Now some of those who make it into His kingdom will bear more fruit than others. But some will say, What is going on here? That does not seem right. But, is God unfair? He did say that His ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts.

We just wouldn’t do it that way. And with that thought we are tempted to believe that we are more fair than the Father. The fact is that His ways are past finding out. He is the Creator, the Potter, sitting at His wheel. We are the clay. And can the thing formed say to Him that formed it, “Why did you make me like this? I wanted to be a vessel in the house of the king, and here you have made me an old pot that the washwoman uses.” Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? Romans 9:21. He is in control, and we need to look it all over.

Some will get it, and some will not

And so He is saying, I am speaking unto them in parables, and some will get it and some will not. And it is a gift. This knowledge is given to certain people in the earth. The Master goes on and says in v. 12, “For whosoever has to him shall be given.” “Has” is present tense, right now. If we are those to whom He has given these precious truths, then it is done. It may be lying dormant in there, but it is just waiting to come alive in us. We just may not realize that we are going to be the receptacle to receive this truth in its fullness.

“Whosoever has, to him shall be given.” Has what? Could it be that that person has their name written in heaven? “And he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which says, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive.”

A person can look right at it and not see it. “For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed.” He knew that they would close. This is the reason that we don’t comprehend His plan and purpose. It is because our hearts and minds are in this condition. “Lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” So they are in trouble. He is talking about the multitudes at that time and projecting forth to our time.

He goes on to say to the disciples in v. 16, “But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.” You are seeing things that many righteous men, prophets and kings have desired to see in their natural life, but did not. The Master is saying, “You are seeing me talk to you. You are seeing Me, Yahshua, the Self-Existent One in human form talking to you. For my name means the Self-Existent-One-is-Savior. And you are seeing me speak to you right now lining out this kingdom.”

And that is what all the prophets, who had the Spirit of Yahshua within them, looked forward to and spoke about. It was only because of His Spirit within them that they were able to speak the things that they said.

The Master explains the “Parable of the Sower”

“Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Matthew 13:18-23.

He always alluded to what was next to them in nature—a field of wheat, barley, corn, trees. And we know that even in a well-prepared field of corn some of the ears will be bigger that others. That is all there is to it. It is a fact of life, of nature. It is His doing, and it is marvelous, and we are just grateful that we can eat of that corn. When we are eating that piece of cornbread, we don’t care if the ear that the grains were taken from was three inches long or a foot long. It is good corn. And that is the way that we should look at the little ears of corn in His kingdom, and the mid-size ears, and the big ears. We have to see the distribution of it with spiritual eyes.

In the concept of 30, 60, and 100 fold, the Master is talking about different distinct levels of fruit bearing in His kingdom. Some of his offspring will walk in His Spirit in a greater depth than others. This may be a new concept, totally new to our way of thinking.

Yet there are many other scriptures that confirm this. “First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear…Faith, hope, and charity (agape love)…Justification, sanctification, and glorification…”

The Apostle John Explains It Further

A 30, 60, and 100 fold precept is found in I John 2:12. “I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.” He is saying that I want to reassure you that your sins are forgiven because His name means Yah-is-Savior, and He has done it in your life. I don’t believe that if he were writing another apostle or prophet that he would have to reassure him about that point! The apostle Paul said, “I fathered you in the gospel.” Paul was a spiritual father, not a little child of God. And yet John is writing to all three levels of growth, children, young men, and fathers, for all three were growing together in the assemblies.

Verse 13: “I write unto you fathers, because you have known him that is from the beginning.” You have that knowledge, that depth and have gone on back into the Father’s heart and know the Father well. He’s not addressing little children “tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine.” No. That is not a father in the gospel; that is not Paul, for sure. “I write unto you young men, because you have overcome the wicked one.” I want to encourage you in that, he is saying. In a 60 fold growth, followers of Yah will have overcome the devil.

So we see that John wrote to three different levels of growth in the Messiah here. This fits in perfectly with what Yahshua spoke of in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13. And although there is not one stone upon another in the house of Yahweh, there are three distinct levels of growth. And this is a secret and a mystery of the kingdom.

This does not set well with some people, and to some it is not a problem. If we have our own conception of the way things are in His kingdom that does not have this in it, then there could be some problems in receiving it. “Charity (agape love) rejoices at the truth.” We all must see that our job as His creation, His “create-ture,” is to believe the truth. We are not to formalize the truth in our imagination, but rather be open to it and just receive it.

Most of what John admonished in I John 2 was written to little children. He would not have written, for example, “Keep yourselves from idols,” to a Peter, Paul, or James. That was to little children who needed that exhortation.

The three levels found in another parable

Furthermore, this same concept of differing abilities, different levels of spiritual fruit-bearing in Christians, can be found in the parable of the talents in Mt. 25:14.   Yahshua likens Himself unto a man who was traveling into a far country and delivered all his goods to his servants. He did not give all his servants an identical amount of goods to take care of. He entrusted five talents to one, two to another, and one to another—according to their ability. The servants with the five and two did well and were rewarded accordingly. The servant with one did not do so well. The point is that the Master makes a distinction in responsibility. The ones who were faithful, were rewarded accordingly.

If we are all the same and are going to bear the same amount and kind of fruit, why does He say, “To whom much is given, much is required”? If He gives us much responsibility in His kingdom to do, He will require much. He says of Himself, “I am an austere man, reaping where I did not sow” (His apostles have been sowing all this in us through the scriptures).

He said that there are different harvest production rates, different levels of spiritual fruit production. The word, the seed, falls into a good and honest heart. And the result is that some will bear 30 fold spiritual fruit. They are in, and it is a wonderful thing. And that may be all this writer ever does. If 30 fold is what He has for me, that is fine. I just want to be in the harvest.

And yet, some will bear 60 fold fruit; the Spirit will come into them, and they will have overcome the wicked one. And then some will be 100 fold fruit bearing offspring of the living Yahweh. They will be strong and do exploits in the land. And if I am not called to be one of these one hundred fold fruit bearers, then that is okay. I do not have a problem with it. I just want to help them do it, if that is the case. I just want to be a part of it.  KWH

The Mind of Christ–What Are His Thoughts?

We are told to “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Yahshua)” [1].  We are then to have His thoughts, to think the way He does, to meditate on subjects that fill His mind.

So what fills His mind?  What is He thinking about right now?

We get a thumbnail sketch of His thoughts in His model prayer for us, the so-called “Lord’s Prayer.”  In it Christ mentions the Father’s name, the Kingdom of God, His will to be done in earth, the spiritual bread, forgiveness, deliverance from evil, and a need to surrender to the Father’s majesty.

These subjects in Christ’s mind are vast “that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written” [2].  So I want to address just one aspect of one of them–the Kingdom of God.  

The “good news” is the “gospel of the kingdom of God” [3].  The true gospel that Christ spoke continually of is the good news that His Father’s kingdom is coming to this earth.  He is speaking of a real government that will replace all of man’s governments.  Righteousness, peace, and joy will replace crookedness, war, and misery that is plaguing the planet at this present time.  That is the good news that filled Christ’s mind. 

We have been told since childhood that the gospel is something else–that it is salvation.  Salvation is important as a first step, for one cannot enter the kingdom of God, the government of God, without it.  It is, however, only the first  baby step.  God wants us to grow up and be His governors in His literal kingdom that is soon coming to fill this whole earth.  There is so much more to it than what most churches teach!

The Thousand Year Reign

Where do we think we will be during the millenial reign of Christ?  He is returning to earth to establish God’s government here.  Are we going to be with Him here, or will we be “rolling around heaven all day”?  Will His offspring be playing harps on streets of gold in some mystical place, or will we be rolling up our sleeves and doing the work of “building the old waste places” of the earth–the aftermath of the great tribulation period?

If the overcomers are to “sit with Him on His throne,” then when will that happen?  Again, Christ is  coming back here to earth to rule and reign for 1,000 years.  His throne will be here, and the overcomers will be sitting with Him on His throne [4].  To those same overcomers “will I give power over the nations” to rule over them [5].

We need to have Christ’s mind, to think like He thinks.  And He thinks big!  On a world wide scale–like a worldwide government.  His true followers will He appoint to “have authority over ten cities” as He mentions in the parable of the pounds [6].  This parable, which as all parables reveal mysteries “kept secret from the foundation of the world,” is a snapshot of what His true followers will be doing during the 1,000 year reign.  They will be rulers–kings, if you will–over geographical areas of the earth. 

He did say that He was the “King of kings and the Lord of lords” [I Tim. 6: 5].  Look up “king” in the Greek and it is “leader of the people, prince, commander, lord of the land, king.”  “Lord of the land”?  What land?  The earth during the 1,000 year reign.

If you are reading this and seeing this, then “blessed are your eyes, for they see.  For many prophets and righteous men have desired to see these things and have not seen them” [8].  Why?  Because they saw the Kingdom afar off.  And it is for our time.  Oh, they will be with us in the kingdom.  In fact, we will sit at their feet and honor their faith that has been such an inspiration to us and that has helped us in our walk. They now sleep in the dust of the earth until Christ returns and resurrects them to be a part of His entourage at the beginning of the new wondrous age of peace that the Prince of peace will bring to this crooked, starved planet.

Oh, there is so much more that He wants to reveal to us, which is what He is thinking about, which is what is on His mind.

But the shame of it is this.  Many who claim to know God don’t know what His thoughts are.  I want to believe that this is the case.  For if they know about the true gospel of the kingdom and don’t share it with others for what ever reason, then–let’s just say–God will be most unpleased with them. 

And so I have to ask the question: How can you “know God” and not know His thoughts, not know what is in His mind?  When you know a person, you know what they are about.  You know whats on their mind because they will speak their thoughts.

In any event, we haven’t even scratched the surface of what is the Mind of Christ, which is the Mind of the Father.  “For eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things that God has prepared for those that love Him” [9].

These are the “unsearchable riches of Christ.”  But then, He also told us, “Seek and you shall find” the “hid treasure” in the earth, which is the Kingdom of God, which is “the mind of Christ.”  KWH

The Parable of the Leaven Hidden by the Woman

Things in this world are not what they seem.  Our perception, or lack thereof, causes us to see only what we have been told was there.  So we only see what we expect to see.  The rest of what really is available to see lays dormant to the eye.  It waits for someone to perceive what was there all along.

Take reading the Bible, for instance.  Every person who reads it, reads it through a matrix of past teachings and doctrines that they sat under, making it difficult to see it with fresh eyes.  Every denomination has pet doctrines that serve as a prism for their followers to see through.

It is the “leaven that the woman took and hid in three measures of meal” (Mt 13:33).  “Leaven” in scripture is hypocrisy.  “Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy” (Luke 12:1).  The key word here is “to hide.”  Leaven is hid during the kingdom of heaven years after the resurrection and ascension.  It is hid in the food that the followers of the Savior are to eat for their spiritual sustenance.  Leaven is hid through false teachings about God.

False Doctrines Multiply

And “a little leaven leavens the whole lump” (Gal 5:9).  A little false doctrine multiplies like a bit of yeast in a lump of bread.  It soon spreads throughout the whole lump of dough.    That is what the false religious system, symbolized as the “woman,” has done.  Their false teachings cloud the truth so that the truth cannot be seen.  They hide the truth with smoke and mirrors and spread confusion and a false sense of security.  The Savior in the next verse after His warning about the leaven of hypocrisy says, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”  False teachings about God hide the truth from the eyes of casual onlookers.

You mean things really are covered up where the average person can’t see them?  Yes, according to the Messiah.    We are doctrinally to partake of the “unleavened bread of sincerity and truth,” Paul says.  That would then make leaven insincerity and falsehoods.  Bread is a symbol for sustenance.  “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”  So leavened bread, spiritually speaking, is not the true word of God, but another doctrine.

Many say, “Doctrine is not the important.  Just loving Jesus and each other is the important thing.”  This is some of the old leaven we are to purge out.  The apostle John was strong on the importance of sound doctrine.  “Whosoever transgresses and abides not in the doctrine of Christ, has not God.  He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, he has both the Father and the Son.”  Doctrine is translated from a Greek word that simply means “instruction.”  We, then, are to abide, or to continue in the teachings and instruction of Christ, the Messiah.  If we do not continue in them, then we “have not God,” according to the apostle John.

That is how important the doctrine of God is.  But this takes us full circle to this dilemma: What is the teaching/instruction/doctrine of the Savior?  If we have been eating of a tainted, leavened bread that seems to be truth, but is actually hiding the truth as seen above, then how will we be able to see the truth?

It is here that many will balk.  They will think in their hearts that the old wine is better; the new wine we can’t trust because it is new. “I already know the truth.  I’m set.  Many will go on their way and not delve any deeper into this area.

But wait!  Don’t throw this aside! I want to prove to you that there are things hidden right in your own Bibles that you have read a hundred times or more and never saw.  How can I say this with conviction?  Because I just experienced a profound revelation of truth in the Bible—a truth that was always there in black and white—literally there, but I had never seen it.

I was reading Paul’s writings in I Corinthians 10:4-9—what he said about the children of Israel in the wilderness.  “And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”  A footnote loomed out at me on the word “followed.”  It said, “that went with them.”  In other words, “They drank of that spiritual Rock that went with them…”  The children of Israel drank in the words of Christ, for He went along with them on their journey in the wilderness.

This intrigued me, so I turned to Exodus 17 to read about this.  We have all heard of the story of the miracle of Moses smiting the rock and water coming out to quench the thirst of the people.  In that passage, the children of Israel chided Moses for bringing them out “to cause us to die of thirst.”  Moses then cried to YHWH and YHWH responded by saying,  “And Yahweh said unto Moses, Go on before the people and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.  Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.  And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel” (Ex 17:5-6).  Okay.  Moses smites the rock and water comes out of it. A great miracle, indeed, but we have all read this passage many times.  What’s new?

Go back to where Yahweh is speaking, “Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb…” I will stand before you there upon the rock in Horeb! Yahweh stated here that he was about to stand on the very rock that Moses was to smite.  Picture it!  God Almighty, in His glorified human form, the one He spoke through in the Garden of Eden to Adam and Eve, the one who appeared to the patriarchs and prophets—Yahweh said that He will stand on that rock that Moses would smite for water, and He would stand there in the sight of Moses and the elders of Israel.  And Paul, getting the revelation of this wrote that the children of Israel saw and heard Christ; they drank for that spiritual Rock that went with them through the wilderness, and that Rock was Christ.  The Anointed One was there in the wilderness.  He is the arms, the legs, the body of the invisible God, Yahweh.  Yahshua is the “expressed image of the invisible God.”  When Yahweh said, “I will stand on the rock,” He would use His glorified form, Immanuel.   Invisible Yahweh poured fully into His glorified form standing there on that rock that Moses struck!  What a sight!  What a glorious moment in the history of this world.  The children of Israel had no excuse for acting the way they did, for He went with them and stood before them, His feet above where the water was gushing out!

I never saw that before.  I have never heard this or read this before.  This revelation was a complete utter gift that God gave to me for no merit of my own.  I share this so that, yes, others may see the glorious appearing of the Savior in Moses’ day.  But more importantly, I share this so that we all can see that there is more to all of this truth than what we first thought.  It is the “unsearchable riches of Christ.”  We all have not even scratched the surface.  His works are so grand and glorious that John said that “if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written” (John 21:25).

Consequently, we must remain open to new revelation.  We must open our minds and hearts and pray that God would lift the fog of old leaven teachings that conceal and hide the truth of what God is doing and will do in the earth shortly.

THERE IS MORE! The old teachings of the old denominations won’t get the job done in this day.  God is doing something new in the earth.  He is calling forth a group of men and women who will remain open to new revelations.  He said, “Behold, I make all things new.”  That’s a “new covenant…a new heart…new wine…new bottles…new testament…new cloth…new commandment…new doctrine…new creature…all things are become new…a new man…new creature…a new and living way…new heavens…a new earth…a new name…a new song…and a new Jerusalem.”

If there is nothing new in our spiritual life, then we are missing out on God’s work in the earth.  And He will do all of this as He restores all things that He spoke through His prophets since the world began.  What a God!  KWH

Parables Conceal the Mysteries of God

     Parables are not nice little stories to help us understand the Bible. We have been told this by well-meaning teachers and pastors, but it is not true.  To the contrary, parables are used by God to deliberately keep some from knowing His secrets.  Before you click away, let me elucidate.

 

     The Creator has a stupendous 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.

 

      The first thing to know is that parables contain the “mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.”  They conceal the secrets of God, hidden since the foundation of the world.      

     God is sovereign, and He will reveal Himself and His plan to whomever He desires.  “For a man can receive nothing except it be given to him from heaven.”

 

      Christ, the Anointed One, was teaching the multitudes in parables.  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.  {First, parables reveal “the secrets of the kingdom of heaven.”  And He gives this knowledge to certain ones, and some He does not give it to} 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 and riddles are deliberately thought out by the speaker.  They are purposely spoken.  And so it is with His parables.  All these things spake Jesus (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.

 

     Parables are not nice little illustrations; they are riddles and puzzles that are meant for only a few to understand and solve the mysteries of His governance in the earth.     Kenneth Wayne Hancock
