Know The Mysteries of The Kingdom of Heaven



Matthew 13   Know The Mysteries of The Kingdom of Heaven
 
 The Book of Matthew   Hebrews 6
 
Matthew 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
 
You need to be able to distinguish between The "wheat group" and the "tare group"
 
Matthew 13:1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
  • Mark 4:2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in His doctrine,
2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
  • Mark 4:1 And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
    2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
    3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
    4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
  • Parable "The Sower" How to brings forth God's word and teach
  • Means to Broadcast the word
  • The seed was "the word of God concerning the Kingdom"
  • Means, how you sow the seed (God's word) and bring forth.
  • Some of these parables were repeated (and varied) on other occasion.
  • There are no "discrepancies" unto.
  • Parables here, eight (not seven as sometimes alleged) are selected for the special purpose of the Holy Spirit in this Gospel.
  • As these eight parables relate to "the Kingdom of the Heavens", the sowing must relate to the proclamation of it verse 19.
  • 1. By John, "the wayside" Matthew 3:2-6
  • 2. By Christ, the Twelve, and the Seventy, "the stony ground" Matthew 4:12 and Matthew 26:35
  • 3. By the Twelve in the land, and Paul in the synagogues of the Dispersion (the Acts)
  • 4. Still future (Matthew 24:14) and on "good", because prepared ground.
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
  • By the way side;  It's a path (like a side walk), people would walk and pack down the ground.
  • Means once you sow the seed (God's word). You do not know, how many seeds will grow, some indeed will hear and some will not understand the word.
  • Let go down to verse 19, When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.
  • This is he which received seed by the way side.
  • Matthew 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
    2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, (Isaiah) saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
  • This was "by the way side", and the opposition of the evil one is shown in the birds of evil omen (as in the case of the mustard tree).
  • Hence the seed was "devoured" and the word "not understood"
  • When he sowed in (as in verse 3) in his sowing; some indeed will hear and some will not
5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
  • By Christ, the second sowing, (Matthew 4:17)
  • You have to have roots, to hear the word
  • Stony places = rocky or broken land = no root
  • Forthwith = immediately
6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
  • The sun will come up, but they will not teach my word every day, things of this world is more important, they put God's word last.
  • Christ is our Rock, without Christ you have no root, if you follow Satan you will be withered away.
  • Luke 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
    14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection
  • Matthew 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
    26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
    27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
  • Bible study hour The song of Moses ( Christ is our Rock)
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
  • Thorns are Satan and his children, he trying to take the word from you, with false teaching, this is Satan's deception, his lies.
  • By the third sowing was by Peter and the twelve and "by them that heard Him" (the son Hebrew 2:3) during the Dispensation of the Acts.
  • It was "among the thorns". Peter  proclamation the Kingdom (Acts 3:18-26), and repents the call to national repentance, which was the abiding condition of national blessing.
  • The "thousand of the Jews" who at first "received the word", continued "all zealous of the law". (Acts 2:20).
  • The sowing came to a crisis in Acts 28, when the Kingdom was rejected, and has since in abeyance.
  • Luke 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
    14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection
8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
  • This means, good soil, When God give you the word with understanding, he wants you to teach the word, He wants the word to grow.
  • Teach to those that wants to learn His word
  • Colossians 1:23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
  • If you can understand the truth, you can understand peoples minds, he is saying listen up
10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
  • Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
  • Question of the Disciples
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
  • The Mysteries, the secrets or the things hither to kept secret.
  • Because it is given unto, "those that will be doers", "those that will act on it", and  teach the word.
  • It is given to them that want to study and teach God's word
  • If you can just get one to hears God's word, it is important to God.
  • God loves His children.
  • The fourth sowing is still future, It will be the final proclamation of "The Gospel of the Kingdom", Immediately preceding and during the Tribulation (Matthew 24:12-14).
  • Blindness has "happen to Israel", but it is only in part (Romans 11:25).
  • The how long  (Isaiah 6:11)
  • This is what was going on in Isaiah chapter 6. If the people want to deceive themselves, God will allow it.
  • This sowing will be of short duration only, as were other three, and numbered by days (Daniel 12:13 and Matthew 24:22 and Luke 17:26)
  • There will be a special manifestation of the presence and power of the Lord (Matthew 28:20), at the end of this age; and, when this sowing is over, the end will come (Matthew 24:13-14), concerning which the disciples had enquired in verse 3.
  • Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
  • James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
  • Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
    26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
  • If God give you a truth, if you don't share it, He will not  give you any more truth, if someone ask you question about God's word, share it.
  • This is how God give you more truth.
  • All too many today listen to the traditions of men, rather than the word of God. They wouldn't know the truth, if it bit them. They aren't hearing our Father. They are haring the words of men.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
  • Question of Disciples, Answered and the condition of the people
  • Therefore = On this account
  • You can see the sun come up, but you will not hear God's word every day.
  • Speak I to them in parables; Why, Because they seeing see not
  • Hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
  • Because they care more about this world age, things are more important and what people say.
  • 2 Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
  • Question of Disciples, reason and because
  • The Prophet Isaiah, in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias (Isaiah), which saith,
  • Isaiah 6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
    10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
  • They just don't get it. They can't understand the simplicity in which Christ teaches. Fortunately, some would rather hear our Father.
  • The tenth are walking up, and they are hungrey for God's word not man words..
  • There is nothing more important than hearing from our Father. We hear from Him directly through His word.
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
  • After they see, hear, and understand they become responsible. Then it is possible for them to commit the unforgiveable sin. There eyes and ears are closed for their own good.
  • You have to closed your eyes, to see your spiritual eyes and understand with your heart and mind.
  • Waxed gross = grown fat
  • Be converted = be turned to the Lord, don't worry what people say
  • Hebrew 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
    13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
    14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
  • Condition of Disciples, Happy
  • Blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
  • He talking to God's elect , you have to want to study God's word, search out His word and teach.
  • Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
  • You are very fortunate to have eyes to see and ears to hear at this point in time. Many of the prophets would have loved to switch places in time with you.
  • Many of the prophets, earnestly wanted to live in this generation, we are in the last generation.
  • This (last) generation which started May 14, 1948, the parable of the fig tree was setup.
  • Hebrew 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
    14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
    15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
    16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
    17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
    18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
  • There is a big difference between hearing the word of God and understanding the word of God.
  • Hear the Interpretation of Parables of the sower, listen up
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
  • The word of the kingdom, the proclamation of its having drawn nigh as in Matthew 3:2
  • They can not handle the word, so they will be deceived by Satan.
  • The word of the kingdom, the proclamation of its having drawn nigh
  • Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
    12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
  • By the way side (By the ways of the world's, they listen to man) They do not want to hear or understand.
  • Hence the seed was "devoured" and the word "not understood"
  • Why? Because they listen to man, they do not search out the word from God
  • Who is the wicked one? The evil one
  • 1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
  • Satan will do anything to lead you away from God's word, with the help of his children (tares)
  • Go down to verse 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
  • By Christ, the second sowing  (Matthew 4:17)
  • Stony places = rocky or broken land, means no root
  • (Matthew 13:20). (Mark 6:20, and Mark12:37) (Luke 4:22). This was unfruitful (Mark 4:16-17)
  • Go back up to verse 5-6
  • Anon means immediately, means; They said, I got it and see the truth, but it's in stony places, they have no root in themselves.
  • Mark 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
    17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.
    18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
    19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
    20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
  • Have you ever shared a truth with someone who lit up like fire when they heard the word, and then the next day they are gone. There is no root, and they weren't chosen.
  • No root means: They are not studying God's word, they have no foundation
  • Go back up to verse 6, If you are following Satan, your foundation is on sand.
  • But dureth for a while means but is temporary , or endureth but for a season
  • By and by means immediately, same as Anon
  • The offence is as immediately as the joy, they think they understand God's word, but they stumble, because they have not roots in them self.
  • Is offended means stumbles, they do not want to study and search out the truth. They ask man.
  • What tribulation?
  • Satan's tribulation
  • Why?
  • Because of the word (they do not  want to study the word of God) they will be deceived.
  • Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
    7 As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
  • Christ is our foundation, He is our Rock = The song of Moses
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
  • If you are unfruitful, God can't utilize you. But the angels in heaven rejoice, when one soul is saved. If you have even a small part in that, God will bless you.
  • Among here is not the same word (among) as in verse 5
  • They think of this world, they think of what people say and put God's word last. God given us free will, it's up to you to follow God or Satan. If you follow Satan you will be deceived.
  • Do not sow around people (thorns) that do not care about God's word
  • Among the thorns: Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
  • Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
  • 2 Timothy 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
    15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
  • World - This world age, now
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
  • It doesn't matter how much you produce. As long as you are producing, you will receive God's blessing. Be part of that shoot that springs forth. Hear our Father. Obey our Father.
  • You can sow God's word to 100 people and only few will hear.
  • What ever God give you, share it, don't expect 100% to hear.
  • It all pay the same. It's up to God, if the seed grows.
  • Which also means: who indeed study the word of God
  • And bringeth forth means:  to Broadcast the word
  • The word "some" is used twice, means: some indeed will hear and some will not hear
  • 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
    21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
  • Three Parables, Another, Another, Another
  • Another, The parables spoken outside (verse 1) are introduced thus; those within the house by the word "again" (verse 36) marking off the structure.
  • Another parable put he forth unto them
  • The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
  • The field is the (world).
  • Sowed good seed means: God's word
  • These are the people that teach God's word
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
  • The good seed was sowed my God, through His Son, and by His prophets and the Bible now.
  • The bad seed was sowed by Satan, through his children, they are against God's word
  • While tares are growing, it looks like wheat and you cannot tell them apart, but when full grown the ears are long and the grain are almost black or bitter and poisonous.
  • Wheat is golden, but tares show their true colour as they ripen.
  • Each grain must be removed before grinding wheat, or the bread is bitter and poisonous. 
  • The song of Moses, Satan's word is bitter and poisonous, they (Satan's children) will lead you away from God's word. 
  • Revelation 8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
  • They follow Satan's teaching, they are spiritual death.
  • Waters in Revelation are the peoples and nations
  • They follow Satan, into darkness, 1/3 of the people became bitter from false teaching, they are spiritual death.
  • Went his way means; He had no doubt as to the result. Nor should those have doubt who sow "the good seed" of the word of God. They should have as much confidence in their sowing as the "enemy" had in his; and go their way, and sow more.
  • Sowed means sowed upon the people to hear, God's word.
  • Do you have the oil (the word) in your lamp?
  • Matthew 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
    4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
    5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
    6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
    7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
    8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
    9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
    10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
  • His enemy came (Satan and his children)
  • Hebrew 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
  • Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
  • The word seed in the next verse will be children, not the same word
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
  • The parables of the children, word "seed" changing to children
  • They can tell the different now, the tares, from their works
  • Tares - Satan's children
  • Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
  • Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
  • Mark 4:26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
    27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
    28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
    29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
    30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
    31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
  • Servants = bondservants
  • Householder = master of the house
  • They can tell the different now, they are poison.
  • Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
    18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
    19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
    20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
  • An enemy hath done this. (Satan)
  • The good seed have mixed with the tares
  • Jude 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
    23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
    24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
    25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
  • Ye gather up means while gathering them together
  • This is why you need to know the parable of the fig tree
  • You can tell how people believe by their works
  • Mark 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
    40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
    41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
    42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
    43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
  • Let both grow together until the harvest: (Harvest is the end of the world)
  • And in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, (Reapers are the angels)
  • Gather ye together first the tares (Tares are Satan's children)
  • Bind them in bundles to burn them (The lake of fire)
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
  • Mustard seed is the smallest seed, but it is grows about 15 feet high
  • This was "by the way side", and the opposition of the evil one is shown in the birds of evil omen (as in the case of the mustard tree).
  • Mark 4:30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
    31 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
  • If you start a work up for God, Satan's children come and try and destroyed it.
  • All seeds means; from verse 31, " all the seeds that a man sows in his field".
  • It is grown means; it shall or may have grown.
  • This grown is contrary to nature; to show that it symbolizes an unnatural results, with its consequences.
  • The greatest among herbs means greater than garden herbs.
  • The air means the heaven sing
33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
  • You can have 100 people in your church, and you let one of the leaven (the tares), they will cause problems. You can not have this in your church.
