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.

Discussion for Matthew 13

  • Matt
    @ Word, I see that your eyes are wide open. As our Lord said, "Blessed are your eyes". Cain is the son of the devil (Gen. 3 and 1 John ch. 3 v. 12), and Cain's children, the Kenites, are the tares. Their true identity is revealed in John ch. 8 (v. 44, specifically); Rev. ch. 2 v. 9 and Rev. ch. 3 v. 9. Any of them that refuse to accept The Savior Jesus Christ will be cast into the fire with Satan.

    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 !

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

    I love this chapter but the part that speaks loudest to me is the wheat and the tares, I believe this scripture speaks loud and clear to the church today. I believe that there are so many people in the church today that fit this scripture, and it is almost scary to think how many people in church today believe that they are a christian when in all actuality they are headed wide open to an eternity
  • NWURUM JEREMIAH for verse 25
    Truly pple hve spoken well concerning the Study while men slept the enemy came. Most times bible used the physical things to explain to us about the spiritual. Sleeping of men in d realm of the Spirit is beyond physical sleeping though it's still part of it. It simply means being being ignorance, neglect, and total abandonment of God's word and His law which every believer ought to abide on. Whenever you are spiritually disconnected because of stepping into the comfort zone the world or sin you are described to be sleeping in the realm of the Spirit and Satan enemy can enter without obtaining permission 4rm Yaweh reason being that you are no longer Jehovah's candidates and can result to your physical slumber sleeping without praying . Man from his ought to pray in order to avert temptation and plan of Satan and it's agent because at night they work without sleep but an hour you as you talk to God in prayers during the night can assign an angelic soilder for war which will do no good to them other than destroying them including their plan. Pray instead of sleeping I suggest
