“37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one];”
The World in which we Live in is Divided in to Four Quarters as Jesus sees it and only One Quarter makes it to the Kingdom Of Heaven. There is approximately 7.8 Billion People in the World and approximately 2 Billion People will be Saved, which means 5.8 Billion People will not make it into The Kingdom! This is for the Year 2021. Now compound the Three Quarters from the Year Jesus, Our Lord, became Our Sacrifice…
Now how does Jesus figure this…
“3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some [seeds] fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
There are Four areas of Life the Seed is talked about and only one bears Fruit Acceptable to Jesus. Jesus is the Sower, He Distributes The Fathers Word, The Fathers Will among Everyone on How to Live, How to be Acceptable to The God Head (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), in which All Three MUST Agree. We need to Understand that at this point The Seed, is The Word which is Sown in The Field, The World.
Now, there are some Seeds, where The Word was not Sown, but was dropped without Direction. This means for an example, that someone Overhears The Word being spoken or even Sees The Word Illustrated in some fashion, but it was not Purposely Sown To Them. Before this Seed, this Word, can even take any root, any growth, Satan comes, and through Manipulation and Removes the very Thought, the Presence of the Word from them, it is gone as though it never existed.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.”
Understand this, the First Seed, The Word is not like the Other Three Seeds. This First Seed, The Word has No Direction Towards A Specific Person, but, as God Is, His Hopes that whomever finds the Seed, The Word, will Believe, and will Accept what has fallen. That it Might take Root to Bear Godly Fruit.
“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.”
The Second Seed has been Sown with Purpose, with Direction to whomever will hear. It could have been sown by an Evangelist, someone in a Work Place having a Bible Study who has invited an Unbeliever to attend. It could be speaking to someone in the Market, Gas Station or any other setting that at the Time Had a Direct Purpose.
Now, the Hearer, Listens to what is Presented, and is Joyful in what they have heard. They Receive The Word, not Denying what they have heard and it Starts to Grow. This person has little or no understanding. Before it can have much Growth, much Understanding, and without Proper Teaching, Guidance, they Become Offended By The Word and what Started To Grow now is Dead, it is Destroyed. They Die because of the Pressures of the Lack Of Understanding.
“20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 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.”
The Third Seed that has been Sown with Purpose, starts to Grow, even starts to Appear out of the Ground. It has a stem and some Leaves. But because of Their Lives In The World, through Rationality Of Their Own, The Seed, The Word is OVERCOME! This can be to their Positions in The World, in Society. This can be the Choice between Family Members giving them Ridicule or that their Friends Ridiculed Them. It can be to what they may have to Change in their Personal Lives to be Acceptable to Jesus. But in all, The Seed, The Word is Choked out by Fleshly Desires, Worldly Desires.
“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.”
The Fourth Seed, the Most Precious of them all, grows into a Godly Person who is Bearing Fruit. We, Brothers and Sisters are to Bear Fruit of some quantity. There cannot be any Born Again Believer, no Brother or Sister, no Blood Bought that cannot Bear Fruit and be Saved. Jesus said that we Will bring forth Fruit, we Will Testify in some capacity that Jesus is The Son Of God, that Jesus Is The Savior Of The World From Sin. Jesus has Declared it!
“But he that received seed into the 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. “
Now comes the hard part. Some of you Claim to be Saved, Claim that Jesus Is Lord and you think going to church, reading your bible, Tithing, even praying is considered Fruit…it is Not! Fruit must be an Outward Presentation to an Inward Change, there has to be some Work that you are Confessing Jesus As Lord, it CANNOT BE HIDDEN!!!
Scriptures that you need to consider…
“19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw [it], they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!”
Indeed it is a Fig Tree, it Looks Like a Fig Tree, Smells Like a Fig Tree but is Worthless because it Bears NO FRUIT!!! It is like having a bucket with a hole in it. You have a Bucket, it Looks Like a Bucket, it is Suppose to Hold Substance, but Cannot, it Will Not because of The Hole WITHIN IT!!!
“33 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth [it] in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. … 36 If thy whole body therefore [be] full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”
Luke 11:33, 36
“17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”
So, if you are within the Quarter Cup, that means that you Believe that Jesus is The Son Of God, that Jesus is The Messiah, That Jesus Is Lord Over Your Life and You Bear Fruit that Proves all of this! If you Say that you are a Christian, a Born Again Believer, a Blood Bought and Do NOT Bear Fruit then you have a problem and are making Jesus a Liar!!!
Now, let me make something else clear here. If Your Words do not Bear Witness to Jesus then you are doing Dead Works. Your Works and Your Faith must be in Agreement. As our Brother James said, Faith Without Works Is Dead, in other words, whatever Work I do or Say must Bear the Testimony that Jesus Is Lord OF My Life.
Now, let me make something else clear, you can Work in a Soup Kitchen, Hand out Food to the poor, give Clothing to the needy, sing in a Choir, go to church and any other Work and NOT BE SAVED! The clarity that Jesus Our Lord made and what our Brother James has said, the Two Must Walk Hand In Hand, that is, Faith and Works must Agree! So, there is one more Clarity here that must be given, if you are doing these Works and YOU do not Speak, do not Tell anyone that Jesus Is Lord and that is Why You are doing these things, then again it means nothing, you are being just like a Heathen that just has Compassion.
“46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so?”
Understand the difference here, we can do everything that the World does that Look Good and we would be Just Like Them, so there Must be a Difference between Us and Them and that Difference is Our Confession Of Jesus In Us! We need to Tell People Why we are doing it or we are no different than the World Is! I tell people all the time that it is Because Of Jesus that I do what I Do, they need to know that it is because of The Love of God that this Work, this Fruit is Bearded…else how will they every know that Jesus Is Lord?
You cannot Claim to within the Quarter Cup if your Fruit does not Bear Witness that you are.
God The Father has given us Salvation through Jesus His Son, we are Not to Hide it, nor Bury it but our Salvation is to Bear Fruit in such a manner that whomever we are around they Know that we Believe In Jesus, because We Are Living It, Speaking and Sharing it!
I do not want to be a part of this World, but yet I am in this World and while I am here I must use Worldly things to Bear Witness that it is Not I, but Jesus who has done The Works that You See and Hear. There Must be a Separation between the World that I must Live in and Who Jesus Is Within, Without Me, else why should I even try? If I do not give this Message that is Clear to The World that Jesus Is Lord, then how will The World every know, or change. It is My Responsibility to make this happen, it is My Choice to Bear Witness that Jesus Is Lord!!!
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
Only A Quarter Cup!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
