God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines,

our building blocks, our Godly thoughts laid one upon another.


(Rom 10:17)  So then faith [Gk: belief] cometh by hearing [i.e., through your ear-gate (the Bible is an oral tradition)], and hearing [understanding] by the word [Gk: rhema] [by the revelations, by the fruit] of God.


(Heb 4:12,13)  For the word [Gk: logos (seed)] of God is quick [Gk: alive], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul [your natural man thoughts] and spirit [your spiritual man thoughts], and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner [Gk: judge] of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest [Gk: apparent] in his [Father God’s] sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.



(Mark 4:13)  And he  [Jesus] said unto them, Know [Gk: understand] ye not this parable? [1] and how then will ye know all parables? [2]

1.     parable = Gk: a similitude, symbolically a fictitious narrative of common life conveying a moral: comparison, figure, parable, proverb.

2.     (Luke 8:11)  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word [Gk: logos] of God.

3.     Commentary: Picture a cornstalk. A word of God is like a cornstalk of seed/fruit, logos/rhema.


(Mark 4:14,15)  The sower [the farmer, the one who scatters] soweth [Gk: scatters] the word [Gk: logos (seed)]. And these are they by the way side [side of the road], where the word is sown; but when they have heard [“and understandeth it not” Matt 13:19], Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts [“lest they should believe and be saved” Luke 8:12]. [i.e., unsaved peoples]


(Mark 4:16,17)  And these [seeds (words)] are they likewise [as the people by the side of the road] which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root in themselves [1,2], and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended [Gk: entrapped, stumble or are enticed to sin, apostasy] [“fall away” Luke 8:13; Gk: instigate to revolt, desert: withdraw self]. [and are “likewise” unsaved peoples]

1.     (Isa 11:10)  And in that day [the 1,000 year millennium] there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign [Heb: a flagstaff: banner] of the people; to it shall the Gentiles [the unsaved] seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

2.     (Rev 22:16)  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David [the son of Jesse], and the bright and morning star.


(Mark 4:18,19)  And these are they [seeds (words)] which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares [Gk: distractions] of this world, and the deceitfulness [Gk: delusion] of riches, and the lusts [Gk: longings (especially for what is forbidden)] of other things entering in [to us], choke [Gk: strangle completely] the word, and it becometh unfruitful [Gk: barren: without fruit] [“and bring no fruit to perfection” Luke 8:14; Gk: to completion (maturity)]. [saved sheep, support troops - because they have “root”]


(Mark 4:20)  And these are they [seeds (words)] which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it [“and understandeth it” Matt 13:23], and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty [fold], and some an hundred [fold]. [saved shepherds, combat troops]

1.     (Luke 8:15)  But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

a.      (Luke 21:19)  In your patience possess ye your souls.

b.     patience = Gk: cheerful (or hopeful) endurance: enduring, (waiting).
