To God be the glory

The Seed Sower

A man went out to sow some seeds in the garden of Yahweh

Hoping they would grow to be, food for thought someday

Some seeds fell on fertile ground, and grew up straight and tall

While others fell on miry clay, and did not grow at all

Some fell by the wayside, and were eaten by the birds

And some seeds fell on barren ground, devoid of Yahweh's Words

And when the sun began to shine, upon their fragile roots

They withered in the fervent heat, and died for lack of fruit

Some seeds fell among the thorns, that prospered as they grew

Choking out the seeds of God, and leaving but a few

While those that fell of fertile ground, blossomed and took root

And grew into a fruitful tree, bearing much good fruit

The good seed is the Word of God, and those with ears to hear

Will cultivate the soil each day, with love and fervent prayer

When they're asked by others, to account for what they say

They will share the gospel of the King, and the kingdom of Yahweh

When someone hears the Word of God, and does not understand

It is because the wicked one, has snatched it from their hand

By sowing seeds of fruitless weeds, among the wheat of YAH

To grow together in the field, with those who love God's law

When harvest time is ready, then the angels will descend

To separate the wheat and tares, that were sown by evil men

And those whose hearts were hardened by, the lust in their desire

Will be gathered up in bundles then, and cast into the fire

So chose today who you will serve, the devil or the LORD

But remember that the choice you make, will have its own reward

Eternal life in paradise, in the kingdom of Yahweh

Or eternal death forevermore, for those who disobey

So plant your seeds in fertile ground, that Yahweh has prepared

For those who love the LORD most High, and share what He has shared

With others who are seeking truth, in all they say and do

Then the mercy, love and blessings of Yahweh will fall on you

The Parable of the Sower

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 fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:  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. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 

~ Matthew 13:1-9 ~

The Parable of the Sower Explained

Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 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. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 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. 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. 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.

~ Matthew 13:18-23 ~

The Parable of the Weeds

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 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? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 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. 

~ Matthew 13:24~

The Parable of the Weeds Explained

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
