Mark 4:3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
Matthew 13:4 And when he sowed, some [seeds] fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Note: Seeds sown are the words of life which produce more life in the open heart but cannot penetrate hearts hardened by traffic of worldly thoughts and evil ones steal leftover seed.
MC Prayer: Yeshua sow in us your seed and make it grow perfectly.

MC Prayer: Yeshua make your seed in us overcome all problems.
Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

Matthew 13:12 For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has.
Note: People who have seeds of faith in Jesus Christ growing on good ground are given knowledge of the kingdom but in those whose seeds aren't growing, the revelations of the kingdom are taken away.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us perfect knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.
Bride Prayer: Jesus, make all the ground in our heart good, growing and multiplying your seed hundreds of times. Keep us always hearing you and qualified, knowing the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, so we can have abundantly more revelation of the kingdom of heaven.

Mark 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.
Note: Those who have rocks and no root are those who receive the word with joy, believe for a while, and fall to affliction, persecution, or temptation.
MC Prayer: Yeshua grow our root like yours so we can endure all affliction, persecution, or temptation.

MC Prayer: Yeshua make us care only for you, thus bear much fruit.

Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for not separating mis-believers before the harvest
Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth to them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man which sowed good seed in his field:
Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Matthew 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Note: Tares look like wheat except the kernel is black instead of yellow and they are poison instead of nourishing. This can result from faith in judgment instead of faith in the hope of Christ.
MC Prayer: Yeshua protect us from the poison of false believers.
Matthew 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said to him, Sir, didst not you sow good seed in your field? from whence then has it tares?
Matthew 13:28 He said to them, An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, Wilt you then that we go and gather them up?
Matthew 13:29 But he said, Nay; unless while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them.
MC Prayer: Yeshua help us properly handle tares that they may repent and become your fruit.
Bride Prayer: Let your kingdom of heaven grow in our hearts overcoming all hindrances and converting tares into true believers whenever possible.
Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather you together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Note: Good seed was mixed with tares by the enemy.
Both bare fruit but the field isn't weeded until the harvest to spare the wheat.
MC Prayer: Yeshua give us precision discernment so we accurately select tares and wheat.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the Disciples - for integrating tares into the sower parable's explanation.
Matthew 13:37 He answered and said to them, He that sows the good seed is the Son of man;
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one];
Note: Wheat forms the kingdom but the false outer appearance of Christianity is made by tares, sons of evil.
MC Prayer: Yeshua sow us into the world and make us bear fruit, overcoming the tares.
Matthew 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
MC Prayer: Yeshua overcome the devil and its tares through us.
Bride Prayer: Thank you for explaining your mysterious parables Jesus, we appreciate your sowing the good seed in the world and letting Satan's children grow too until the end of the world when the children of the kingdom will be reaped by the angels and the tares will be burned.
Matthew 13:41 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;
Note: Things that offend are symbols of power and iniquity is use of power to control equals, among other sins.
MC Prayer: Yeshua keep us from all offense in your perfect judgment.
Matthew 13:42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Note: Parable metaphors: sower is Jesus, field is world, good seed are overcoming believers, tares are of the devil, harvest is the end of the world, reapers are angels. Tares that offend, doing iniquity are burned with wailing and gnashing of teeth. The righteous shine intense as the sun in the Father's kingdom, the true church.
MC Prayer: Yeshua make us rigtheous shining perfectly in your kingdom.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for seeing the kingdom as seed.
Mark 4:26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
Mark 4:27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knows not how.
Mark 4:28 For the earth brings forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
MC Prayer: Yeshua keep your seed growing perfectly, even during sleep.
Bride Prayer: Jesus, send forth your angels and gather the offenses and iniquities from your righteous overcoming believers so they can shine brilliantly as you will in the Father's kingdom as the tares wail and gnash Let your seed spring and grow up, bringing of itself the blade, ear, and full corn of life.
Mark 4:29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
Note: God's kingdom is seed, which grows of itself but He sends angels to reap the fruit immediately.
MC Prayer: Yeshua when the fruit is ready, send your reapers to harvest.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for viewing the kingdom as mustard seed.
Matthew 13:31 Another parable put he forth to them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
Mark 4:30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
Mark 4:31 [It is] like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:
Matthew 13:32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
Note: The church changed its nature from a herb to a tree with evil persons, false believers, and enterprises were added.
MC Prayer: Yeshua restore your kingdom and cast out the birds.
Bride Prayer: Let the fruit you are looking for be brought forth so you can harvest it quickly, Jesus. Don't let us bypass your harvest to become a tree for the evil spirits to lodge in. If the end harvest isn't ready, split us into new meetings before we grow amiss.
Mark 4:32 But when it is sown, it grows up, and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
Note: The kingdom of heaven is a tiny mustard seed, which grows unnaturally into a corrupt tree birds (evil spirits) rest in. Church meetings should remain small and pure without growing unnatural via human power or corrupt via money.
MC Prayer: Yeshua restore your seed to its original function.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for picturing the kingdom as leaven.
Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he to them; The kingdom of heaven is like to leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
Note: The kingdom is leaven (rising agent) which a woman (church) hid in three measures of meal (body, soul, and human spirit) until completely leavened.
If the kingdom were meal leaven would make religion false but as the kingdom is leaven, it must be Christ who raises humans to heaven.
MC Prayer: Yeshua hide your kingdom in all of our being.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for desiring the kingdom as treasure
Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like to treasure hid in a field; the which when a man has found, he hides, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.
Note: The kingdom is a treasure which believers sell all to buy, as Jesus bought the earth to get us as His treasure.
MC Prayer: Yeshua increase our joy so we buy your kindom.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for desiring the kingdom as a pearl worth everything.
Matthew 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like to a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Matthew 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Note: The kingdom is a pearl of great price which a merchant sells all to buy.
MC Prayer: Yeshua reveal your kingdom as worth everything.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for seeing the kingdom as a net whose catch the angels judge.
Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like to a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
MC Prayer: Yeshua catch all kinds of people into your kingdom.
Bride Prayer: Thank you for showing us your kingdom in many ways, Jesus. It grows huge, it's like leaven mixed in believers, it's a precious treasure, it's a pearl worth everything, and a net full of all kinds of fish.
Matthew 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Matthew 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
Matthew 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Note: The kingdom is a net, which gathers indiscriminately but angels shall keep the good in vessels and cast the bad into fire where they wail and gnash teeth.
MC Prayer: Yeshua preserve the good people and cast out the bad.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the multitude - for seeing the kingdom as light needing elevation.
Mark 4:21 And he said to them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?
Luke 8:16 No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts [it] under a bed; but sets [it] on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.
Note: Lit candles (lights of truth) aren't hid but set on a candlestick (church) so all may see.
MC Prayer: Yeshua show our light of truth to everyone.
Bride Prayer: As fishermen sort their catch, Jesus, the angels shall sort the wicked from the just, into the fire. The kingdom needs to be raised as a candle on a candlestick to enlighten everyone who enters.
Mark 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Note: Everything hidden secretly will be manifest and come abroad.
MC Prayer: Yeshua reveal all your secrets to us.
Mark 4:23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
Mark 4:24 And he said to them, Take heed what you hear: with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you: and to you that hear shall more be given.
Mark 4:25 For he that has, to him shall be given: and he that has not, from him shall be taken even that which he has.
Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how you hear: for whosoever has, to him shall be given; and whosoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.
Note: Hear and pay attention: as you measure so shall you be given and to hearers who have faith shall be given more but from those who don't will be taken what they have.
MC Prayer: Yeshua make us hear you, measure, and hold faith perfectly.
Bride Prayer: Nothing is hid or secret that it come abroad so that's why you presented the Kingdom as a mystery. Help us measure as you do Jesus and let us keep mixing what you measure with faith in our hearts so we can be given more.
Oct, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to the Disciples - for confirming preaching the kingdom includes treasured metaphors new and old.
Matthew 13:51 Jesus said to them, Have you understood all these things? They say to him, Yea, Lord.
Matthew 13:52 Then said he to them, Therefore every scribe [which is] instructed to the kingdom of heaven is like to a man [that is] an householder, which brings forth out of his treasure [things] new and old.
Note: Understand? Thus everyone taught the kingdom of heaven is a householder who brings forth treasured experiences of God's life new and old.
MC Prayer: Yeshua help us understand and bring forth your treasure.
Nov, 31 - Sea of Galilee, to His Disciples - to go freely in faith bringing God's Kingdom to the spiritually unhealthy.
Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he said to them, Let us pass over to the other side.
Luke 8:22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said to them, Let us go over to the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.
Matthew 8:26 And he said to them, Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
Note: Those who fail to believe and have faith in Jesus' word have little faith. With more faith they could also have rebuked the fallen angels and demons in the environment.
MC Prayer: Yeshua lead us wherever you will, building our faith.
Bride Prayer: Thank you Lord Jesus for explaining the kingdom treasures new and old to prepare us for going to those who need to hear the Gospel. And thank you for calming the resistance for us.
