Direction to look

If you would like to read the first two part of the series, you can go to Bad growing areas and Thrown seed

How can we start to interpret the Parable of the Sower and what Christ says? There are some books and commentaries that do help out, and here is one that you could look at to help. 

Final Confrontation is the last book in the Chronicles of the Host series. I haven’t read much of these books, but they do sound pretty interesting. The book is looking at the earth and life of Jesus in an angelic viewpoint, and there is a conversation in the book that occurs between two angels while Jesus is preaching the Parable of the Sower: “These parables which illustrate the point of His lesson in ways even humans can grasp. Only those who have ears to hear, corrected [the other]. Most of these are searching for a day’s meal rather than a life’s purpose and are therefore missing His point altogether.”

Matt. 13: 1- 9 “That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. 2 And great crowds gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat down. And the whole crowd stood on the beach. 3 And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, 6 but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. 8 Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.”

It was interesting to see how each angel saw what Jesus was talking about in totally different ways, but both being very true. The parables were easy explanations of what Jesus was really trying to get after and the point He was trying to make. They were said in a way that all humans could be able to grasp and understand.

But it is only really attainable to those who have ears to hear, since that is what Jesus said, right? How could that be since everyone has ears that are able to hear, unless they are a deaf person? The really interesting part is where Jesus quotes Isaiah: Isaiah 6:9 “Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.” Jesus says: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!“(Mark 4:9). He obviously was speaking about spiritual perception, as was Isaiah. There are people that don’t and can not hear spiritually to what Jesus is saying and will not before their death.

What does all of this mean? It is really a HEART issue.  Where a person’s heart lies, will tell what a person wants out of life and where he/she will go with that life.  We all want to our own things and our own way, but some choose to hear that voice more than others. Now, I am not saying that those who choose to hear really do anything at all, because it is ONLY God who can produce any kind of good through us as human beings.  I didn’t choose to hear Christ, and I usually don’t choose to do good things, its only with Christ’s help that I can. This is a huge topic of debate, and I really can’t explain it for those that disagree. But I will say one thing, God is almighty and always good, and He controls all things!
