(Mat 13:1-9)  The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. 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. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds (1,2) fell [the same action as if from a fruit tree, i.e., the Tree of Life] by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up [LUCIFER-SATAN IS THE OVERCOMER]: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away [LUCIFER-SATAN IS THE OVERCOMER]. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them (3) [LUCIFER-SATAN IS THE OVERCOMER]: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold [JESUS CHRIST IS THE OVERCOMER]. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

1.       (Luke 8:11)  Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

2.       (John 1:14)  And the Word [of God] was made flesh [Jesus Christ], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

3.       choked = Gk: to stifle [syn: smother, asphyxiate, throttle, suffocate, choke, strangle] (by drowning or overgrowth):--choke /// to wheeze, i.e. to throttle or strangle (drown):--choke, take by the throat.

Commentary: After the parable was preached to the multitude, Jesus interpreted the parable to His disciples in private. Please notice an interesting circumstance in the different gospel identifications of the by the way side opposition to the word of God in the preaching and the interpretation, respectively: fowls (Mat 13:3), the wicked one (Mat 13:19); fowls of the air (Mark 4:4), Satan (Mark 4:15); fowls of the air (Luke 8:5), the devil (Luke 8:12). Why in the preaching of the parable is the evil opposition described as plural (many entities), and in the interpretation of the parable the evil opposition is described as singular (one entity), as if they are one and the same? How can many be one? (1) Answer: Because all of the fallen angels (plural) are messengers/messages of the fallen thoughts (lies) of the chief fallen angel (singular) whose name is Lucifer-Satan. Jesus’ interpretation to the disciples rightly identifies Lucifer-Satan as the father of those lies (lies are thoughts, aren’t they?). (2) That is why the lying fallen angels are identified in the singular as one entity, thus referring to their source. (3) Biblically, fallen angels are the fruit fallen from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; the evil tree that portrays the fruit as mingled (good and evil), impure, lying, veiled as truths, and therefore the defiled thoughts of Lucifer (good) Satan (evil). (4)

1.       (Mark 5:9)  And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

2.       (John 8:43-45)  Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear [Gk: understand] my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning [i.e, Woman, Adam, and thereafter Able], and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him [truth is pure fruit, not mingled fruit]. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.  

                a. (Gal 5:9) A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

3.       (Mark 5:13-16) And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

4.       (2 Cor 11:13-15)  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers [angels, and possessed men] also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.  


Commentary: In The Parable of the Sower, the obstacles set against farmer God are stones and thorns which characterize respectively both defensive and aggressive evil thoughts on one level of understanding, and fallen angels on another level of understanding, who are in fact one and the same, also called demons, unclean spirits, devils. These obstacles are hard, inflexible, unyielding, intractable, stubborn, obstinante, entirely resistant to God, and completely without hope of redemption. Stones may be further notably characterized by an absence of water, i.e., the Holy Spirit. Fallen angels, which are represented as hard defensive stones and aggressive piercing thorns, cannot be changed nor transformed (Rom 12:2) into good soil and soft flowers. In this life these evil soldiers of Lucifer-Satan must be removed from active duty and held captive by confining them in the tombs of our mind (Mark 5:2) and covering (sealing) each tomb with the shed blood of Jesus Christ. In the final judgment they shall be forever burned, and  melted away from our mind. Fallen angels will always be fallen angels; evil (bad) thoughts will always be evil (bad) thoughts. D-evil. The spiritual description of stony ground (many stones) residing in the field of our mind is likened unto fortified strong holds (1), castles, fortresses, which are structures (an argument is a structure pieced together by associated thoughts) built up and composed of many hard stones, or figuratively, well defined and defended arguments that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God.

1.       (2 Cor 10:4,5)  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience [infers something alive that has the power of disobedience] of Christ;

a.       strong holds = Gk: (mean. to fortify); a castle (fig. argument):--stronghold.

Continuing Commentary: For example, pro-abortion supporters present a well defined and defended argument exalting themselves against the knowledge of God. God says “No,” and they say “Yes.” Other godless strong holds, castles, fortresses of evil thoughts that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God are the Women’s Rights movement and Homosexuality. A single fortified strong hold may be most accurately viewed as a composite or company of alike hard thoughts (fallen angels, demons, unclean spirits, devils) unified under one thematic banner, in form and function exactly as a company of military soldiers, which indeed they are, organized for the specific purpose of warfare against God’s purpose and will. These soldiers are a spiritual company of alike evil thoughts composing a particular strong hold, castle, or fortress in your mind which is depicted in the physical realm as a group of men and women who in mutual association are bound together by a belief system of thoughts held in common. This spiritual/physical company of evil fallen angel thoughts (spiritual) residing inside the minds of their host men (physical) may be singularly identified under a banner; for example, the banner of Pro Abortion which proudly waves over a unified strong hold, castle, or fortress wherein the thoughts (fallen angels, demons, unclean spirits, devils) within these human personalities collectively agree, dominate in authority, and dwell, i.e., they are in control of their host men in this particular arena of thought which arrays itself in battle formation “against the knowledge of God.”

  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Prov 14:12)
