Chapter 4

1. And again He began to focalize by the Lake. And a great multitude gathered around Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the Lake; and the gathering was on the land facing the Lake.
2. Then He taught them many things by riddles (1), and said to them:
"Dig this! Consider a certain hippie went out to plant.
4. "And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and scarfed it up.
5. "Some of the seed fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprouted because it had no depth of earth.
6. "But when the sun came it was scorched, and because it had no root it was blown away.
7. "And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop.
8. "But other seed fell on good soil
(2) and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirty-times, some sixty-times, and some a hundred-times."
9. And He said to them,
"He who has ears to hear, let him solve the riddle."
10. But later when He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the riddle.
11. And he said to them,
"To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in riddles,
12. "so that 'Seeing they may see and miss it, 'And hearing they may hear and dis it; 'Lest they should stop living for Babylon, and their error be forgiven
13. And he said to them,
"Don't you understand this riddle? How then will you understand all the other riddles (4)?"
14. "The true focalizer sows the Word of God
15. "And the ones by the wayside hear the Word and the Word is sown. And when they hear, Satan comes immediately to dis the Word that was sown in their hearts.
16. "Then there are those who are sown on stony ground who, when they hear the Word, immediately receive it with gladness;
17. "but they have no determination, and so keep it for as long as it is favorable to their needs. But when hard times come or they get tested for the Word, immediately they stumble.
18. "Now there are the seeds sown among the thorns; they are the ones who hear the Word,
19. "and the cares of Babylon, the temptation of riches, and the desires for other things
(6) entering in choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful.
20. "Finally, there is the seed sown on good soil, those who hear the Word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirty-times, some-sixty, and some even a hundred-times."

21. And He said to them,
"Is a lantern brought to be put under a bucket or under a pot? Is it not to be set on a lamp-stand?
22. "For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.
23. "If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear."

24. And He said to them,
"Act upon what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.
25. "For whoever has, to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him
26. And He said,
"The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground,
27. "and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.
28. "For the earth yields crops by itself; first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head.
29. "But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come
30. And he said,
"To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what riddle shall we picture it?
31. "It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth;
32. "but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade
33. And with many such riddles He spoke the Word to them as they were able to hear it.
34. He never spoke to them without a riddle, and when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples.
35. On the same day, at sunset, He said to them,
"Let us cross over to the other side."
36. Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.
37. And a gale arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.
38. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, 'Teacher, do You not care that we are about to die?
39. Then He arose and schwagged the wind, and said to the sea,
"Peace be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
40. But He said to them,
"Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?"
41. And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?"

Footnotes & Commentary

1. Riddles: Parable. A story within a story that illustrates a moral lesson. Jesus taught in riddles. It was prophesied that the Holy One would teach in riddles.
2. Good Soil: The good soil is the hippie with a genuine heart for God.
3. Salvation is only for those who have eyes and ears and a heart for God and are determined to overcome Babylon. Isaiah 6:9, 10; 43:8.
****You are Invited.

4. How? Jesus was indicating their need for the Holy Spirit to enlighten them to understand the things He taught.
****See the Believer's Meeting.

5. Word of God: This can be the written Word or the spoken Word. It refers to the supernatural intervention of Father God to save those who love Him in their heart. God is looking for a people with spiritual eyes, ears, and a spiritual heart.
****Visit Logos Christian Fellowship.

6. Other Things: Like smoking, getting high or sexual immorality. Anything of Babylon that still has an individual enslaved. Old ties with the world system. Jesus wants us to be completely set free of the things of this world. None of His disciples should be slaves to this world. They are set free. He loves us.
****Do you need Deliverance?

7. God's Truth: Is understood and received accordingly to the proportion of ones own real desire to know God. Some say they seek God, but truth is known by its action or fruit. Many will say they reject Babylon and love God but the true followers of God will receive His only Son Jesus and live accordingly.
8. Seed: This riddle tells us that God is at work in the world to save men's souls. We can only come to the knowledge of God to a certain point on our own, then He must intervene to bring us to completion. He does this with Jesus Christ who comes to harvest the souls of man. Jesus is the Lord of the Harvest.
****You are Invited.

9. Mustard Seed: The kingdom of God begins in one's own heart. At first it is tiny but eventually the chain-reaction will grow beyond your wildest imagination. The seed is the Word of God and the ground is your heart.
