Before The Foundation – The Parable Of The Sower Part 2
The Bible contains truths that bend our natural mind. It can frustrate the natural mind to think about the fact that Jesus was apart of the creation, in the beginning, He existed in eternity before He ever came to the earth as a man. God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have no beginning, they have always been and always will be. Jesus is the exact expression of God in the earth, there is no greater example. When Jesus walked the earth He would often teach people in parables, there is a passage of Scripture found in Matthew 13:34, 35 that says, “All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:” “I will open My mouth in parables: I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.” In this series, we are going to take a look at some of the parables of Jesus in order to discover the Truth that has existed before the world was formed. We do not need to wonder about our lives and why we exist and question what is the meaning of it all. As we understand our Creator and Savior, He then reveals to us our design and purpose. All understanding about creation concerning its gifting and purpose was in place before any of it was manifested, so let’s hear from Creator and experience great light!
Matt 13:34 All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable, He did not speak to them, 35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
“I will open My mouth in parables;
I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.” NKJV
Part 2 – In part 2 in our series we begin to look at the “Parable of The Sower.” Jesus said if we understand this parable we can understand all the parables. There are 4 different grounds that are represented in this parable which are representative of the hearts of men. First, we look at “Wayside Ground,” this ground represents a person who has disdain or little respect for the Word of God. Second, we look at “Stony Ground,” this ground represents a person who has allowed tribulation and persecution put stones in the ground so the seed of the Word takes no root.
