Discussion for Matthew 13

  • I AM
    Such a man only fears the eyes of men, and knows not that the eyes of the Lord are ten thousand times brighter than the sun, beholding all the ways of men, and considering the most secret parts. Behold, the Lord knows all the works of men, their imaginations, their thoughts, and their hearts: there is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves: no disciple.
  • A disciple
    Servant; "Discretion is the better part of valor!" When you are on the internet you have to be very careful not only for yourself and your family, but also for all others you might put in danger by certain kinds of talk. I have tried myself to be direct in naming different kinds; but this is not the format, nor is it in love, nor at all right to volunteer the folks here to unnecessary persecution.
  • Servant of the Living God
    I know. St John's Revelation lays it out pretty good. The signs being clear that one shall come into power speaking in glowing terms but deceiving the people, for he is a liar and the father of it. I see it and reveal him on this site but they won't publish it. It is because the born again were the first to be swayed for he promised to enact their polictical designs. Still, despite his threat

    Do we all know that anti-christ will come first before Jesus Christ returns? So many either dont believe, or haven't been taught ....

These things are HID from the wise and prudent but REVEALED UNTO BABES, its his seed that is gonna form christ IN US,THE BABES

    Vs.19 says that they could not understand the word sewn by Jesus. The next 2 received it but fell aside. Only the 4th brought forth fruit. This chapter is about predestination Rom.8:29-30) It is God who gives the ability to receive and understand the word randomly established before He created the earth. Jesus told the Jewish leaders that they can't understand as they were not of God - destined
