Before The Foundation – The Parable Of The Sower Part 3
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 3 – This week we cover the thorny ground as we continue in the parable of the sower. You cannot give the things of God and the Word of God a back seat in your life and expect to enjoy His promises with a 30, 60, and 100-fold return. The reality of this passage is that most people choose worry, money, personal desires and entertainment over the cultivation and watering of the Word of God in their lives. As you listen allow the Holy Spirit to help you make adjustments in your life so that you can move into the place of 100-fold, mature or full harvest.
