Wesley's Notes for Matthew 13:12


13:12 Whosoever hath - That is, improves what he hath, uses the grace given according to the design of the giver; to him shall be given - More and more, in proportion to that improvement. But whosoever hath not - Improves it not, from him shall be taken even what he hath - Here is the grand rule of God's dealing with the children of men: a rule fixed as the pillars of heaven. This is the key to all his providential dispensations; as will appear to men and angels in that day. #Mt 25:29|; Mark 4:25; Luke 8:18; 19:26.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 13:12


Mt 13:12 Whosoever hath. Those who have been made some spiritual progress will go on, and have greater knowledge. Whosoever hath not. No desire for spiritual knowledge. Such shall become dwarfed, and lose even their capacity for spiritual things; a truth constantly illustrated. Whoever uses his opportunities will grow; whoever abuses them will lose them.

    PARADOX. Our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh in and through His Son our everliving Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus would never have His people ignorant of what is to come in this end of the age of the gentiles.

    It is impossible to sum it all up in a few words. It is so powerful! It is scary for the ones who don't accept Jesus as Savior. It is so important to talk to others about Him.The really sad part is that there are people who listen in church but don't accept Christ as Savior!

    Randolph this has been going on since Cain and as it says Satan the wicked one sends his tares children to earth and God sends His to the field which is the earth. So we have Gods children and we have Satans children that chose Satan for their father in the first earth age. Genesis 3 vs 15 God put enmity between the woman's seed Eve and Satans seed or Zera descendants not yet born tares.
