The Parable of the Mustard Seed
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: 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.
Jesus meant himself as the mustard seed, he is the Word of God. We have his word. We have him. This seed will always grow. The only question is, where do we plant it, where do we distribute / spread it. There are always people searching for the answer of the Bible.
How Bible Reading solves problems and changes the readerˋs life.
Letˋs assume, someone is being reborn and now a child of God. He then goes to church for several years. This is Religion – own works. He seldom reads the Bible, wants to be taught. His life does not change much. All of the problems keep coming back: No discipline, keeps lying, keeps coming late. Problems do not disappear, they stay more or less. Life does not change much.
Letˋs assume, someone is being reborn and he / she reads the Bible seven times in about three years. As an example. The fruit of this seed will stay and should then be, that after a while all of the above mentioned problems WILL disappear and I am absolutely certain, that the Good Seed of the Bible will solve all of such problems and it will do this with every person. THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
We must not forget, the disciples were being / had been taught throughout 3 years personally be Yeshua himself. When Yeshua speaks a word to someone “he is clean“.
The aim is the same now, become a disciple and therefore we do it equally as it was done in the past – we ask Yeshua to teach us personally and we then will be taught by reading the Bible and throughout the day, even, when we do not read Bible.
This work is good work for three years but it is work for eternity.
I was once asked: “What do I have to do to become a man?”
I answered: “It is to do your work.”
It is to do your work without betraying people, even if there was a chance to do so. By this, God examens our heart and mind and our personality. God tests people everyday in such or other situations, before he gives them a Bible. On the other hand, he gives people the Bible, who never looked or searched for it. God has many ways of how someone can come to the Bible.
But: This world is being tested within these years, see Revelation 3,10 for more.
The world has become “loud”. Loud means “super idol”, “super cars”, “super inventions” – “breakthrough within medical questions” – SIGNS AND WONDERS, see Matthew 24 for it.
Biblically, becoming an adult means: to overcome / get rid of sin and the seed will be to read the Word of God and to consume it, to have it in heart and mind. Being free from sin is real freedom. Being mundanely free means: whatever one does and wants to do to a certain limit.
We must not forget: Yeshua did not speak to everybody, when he was here. In addition, we must not forget, that not many of the people who heared him were really interested in following him.
To have the Bible is a chance. Yeshua stays, when we have a Bible.
Yeshua did not teach many personally. Today, it is a similar time, that not many people keep reading the Bible, when we see it proportionally Yeshua believers to world population.
