Excerpt From Newsletter
You cannot even begin to understand the parabolic imagery Jesus used in the Parable of the Sower until you are willing to accept the fact that we are what we believe. God has never planted or sowed any kind of seed in the Earth other than the Seed He sowed when Jesus Christ was buried in the tomb. That is the only kind of Seed He will ever harvest and the only kind of Seed He will ever store in His barns. As the Apostle John plainly stated in the introduction to his gospel, that Seed is, parabolically speaking, nothing other than the Word of God that Jesus Christ believed:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
I have explained on at least one other occasion what John had in mind when he wrote those words. He is referring to the fact that Jesus Christ believed the Truth of The The Teaching. So that’s Who He was. As John stated, The Teaching is like Light. It enables the person who believes it to see what is going on around him. That is, he is able to see how ridiculous we are, readily believing all kinds of lies and easily getting caught up in the things of this world the way we do. The person who sees “The Light” can also see that he needs to have a whole lot more Light if he is ever going to be able to see things as they actually are instead of the way the prince of darkness wants him to think they are. That being the case, let me shed a bit more Light on the parables of Jesus so that those who have ears to hear may understand the Truth.
