In just about every parable of scriptures are packages of wisdom. Jesus spoke to this finish in Mark four:11 when he told his disciples, “And he mentioned unto them, Unto you, it is provided to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are with out, all these items are accomplished in parables”.
Parables are meant to conceal the wisdom of God that only the understanding heart can unravel. Deuteronomy 29:29 tells us, “The secret items belong unto the Lord our God: but these items which are revealed belong unto us and to our youngsters forever, that we may possibly do all the words of this law“. In other words, what ever is concealed belongs to God and what ever is revealed belongs to guys and by means of the energy of revelation we are capable to stroll in the laws of the lord. God conceals his mysteries so that we can develop by the course of action of browsing for them. These mysteries are concealed so that we can obtain them, they are hidden to be revealed.
Proverbs 25:two throws additional light on this, “It is the glory of God to conceal a point: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter”. There is honor in browsing out that which is concealed. Revelation brings honor! This is the honor that God desires to develop into ours as we search out the mysteries of his word! This was the intent of the masters in applying parables to speak and teach, for these who are not provided, these who are with out the kingdom, its just one more fable. But for these that are inside the kingdom inside just about every parable of scriptures are packages of wisdom!
“It is the glory of God to conceal a point: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter”. There is honor in browsing out that which is concealed. Revelation brings honor!
In 1 of the most well-liked parables of scriptures, Jesus spoke on the energy of understanding the word. The parable of the sower has normally been a fascinating 1 to me although developing up and it is about the most vital parable. In one more location exactly where this parable of sower was narrated, Mark four:13, Jesus asked the disciples if you do not know this parable how will you know other parables? This parable is the master parable, unlocking it really is treasures is the crucial to unlocking other treasures in the parables of the master and certainly all the blessings of the kingdom! Let’s study Matthew 13:1-11, 18-19, 23
“The similar day went Jesus out of the home and sat by the sea side. And wonderful multitudes have been gathered collectively unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat and the entire multitude stood on the shore. And he spake quite a few items 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 areas, exactly where they had not a lot earth: and forthwith they sprung up, for the reason that they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they have been scorched and for the reason that they had no root, they withered away. And some fell amongst thorns and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into excellent ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. And the disciples came, and mentioned unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and mentioned unto them, Since it is provided unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not provided….Hear ye thus the parable of the sower. When any 1 heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked 1, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side….But he that received seed into the excellent ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.“
Clearly, when you study Matthew 13 you will see that it is understanding that grants us access to the treasures in the word. 3 verses I will choose from this passage, verse 18-21 Which shows us that with out understanding the word does not take root in our heart! And what ever is not rooted downward can not bear fruit upward(2Kings 19:30) We have to have roots in the word in other to bear fruits in life and It is understanding that gets the word rooted in our heart!
And then in verse 23, the master tends to make us comprehend additional, the depth of just about every man’s understanding determines their level of outcomes. According to the master, outcomes differ according to the level of understanding, some brought forth 30, 60, and some 100! This tells us that we may possibly hear the similar word and not make the similar level of outcome, what determines every single 1 level of spiritual productivity is their depth of understanding! Our depths in the word determines our levels in the planet! And depth in the word is determined by understanding. The additional we comprehend the word the deeper we comprehend God and the additional we know God the additional of his energy we knowledge in our lives!
This is why regardless of all that Paul knew he nonetheless prayed in Ephesians 1:16-19 for God to open the eyes of his understanding. And this is 1 prayer that really should develop into our every day prayer also: Lord grant me a deeper understanding of your word!
THE DEPTHS OF OUR UNDERSTANDING IS WHAT DETERMINES THE LEVEL OF OUR Final results! Consequently it is not sufficient to comprehend the word, we have to deeply comprehend the word! Understanding is what brings to fore the hidden traesures in the word!
WHEN OUR UNDERSTANDING IS DEEP OUR Outcome WILL BE Wonderful!
This new month will bring higher outcomes our way on the platform of renewed and deeper understanding of the word! Amen!
