People's Bible Notes for Matthew 13:18

Mt 13:18-23 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. In order to understand the parable we must listen to the explanation given in Mt 13:18-23. Christ is the great Sower, and all whom he sends forth to preach are sowers under him. The seed sown is His Word, the Gospel of the Kingdom. The soil is human hearts. Four kinds of human hearts are described: (1) The "wayside" hearer; the light, flippant, indifferent hearer upon whom no impression is produced. (2) The "stony" hearer; the heart that exhibits an evanescent feeling at the appeal of the gospel; but upon whom no permanent impression is made. (3) The "thorny soil"; the heart that takes in the Word, but is so full of worldly cares that these presently gain the mastery. This describes the world-serving hearer. (4) The "good soil"; the good and honest heart; the heart that receives and retains the truth. In such a heart the seed will grow and the new life will be manifest. Three things, then, are needful: (1) A Sower. (2) Good Seed, the pure word of God. (3) A good and "honest" heart. A dishonest man cannot be converted until he casts out his dishonesty. He who cavils at and deceitfully entreats the word of God will not be profited.

    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. No man can recieve anything except it be given him from above. THE DREADFUL AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND ! SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA AMEN !

    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.

    Jesus is the Son of GOD! Satan has Angels! Son of man shall send forth his angels,
