Do the Parables of Jesus ,about the kingdom? 

Connect the dots for you?

Ok! Let me explain, Many of Jesus Parables started , The kingdom of heaven is like… eg, Mustard seed , Sower in the field., etc
It occurs to me that Jesus was actually using everyday illustrations ,that we see in nature, and life, to explain Creation and heaven.

God is a god of order, not confusion., So when Jesus is explaining heaven and earth He is giving us a blue-print for what we find in heaven.,and is visable in the Earth.
It sounds like its a growing enviroment.

Thats my take on it! what do you think?

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  The Ruler Of the Earth? (05/01/2014)—(5.)  Men in the earth have been repeatedly tested by Satan; however, not without spiritual provisions and support from GOD.  Even Jesus was challenged, for Satan offered the Savior earthly glory, power, property, and wealth on condition that Jesus worship him.  While Jesus was followed by crowds of thousands, the Savior did not seek earthly fame and fortune.  The Savior did not seek celebrity, popularity, and installation as a king, appointment as a high government official, or privilege as an elected politician.  Jesus worked to coalesce the scattered deposits of spirit matter that continued to exist among those in covenant with GOD.  Using unseen authority and power such as is found in gratitude, humility, personal sacrifice, and unselfish service, Jesus accomplished a fulfillment of an eternal word spoken by GOD to the serpent in the Garden of Eden, that was also overheard and witnessed by Adam.  As illustrated by the accounts of Job and Joshua the high priest, harassment by Satan continues only for divine purposes and within limits determined by GOD.  By the atoning blood of the cross and the Savior’s glorious resurrection, Satan was effectively stripped of all heavenly and earthy estate.  The Adversary will not have authority, prestige, and status as a prince or ruler, who may accuse and bear witness against others in judgment.  When cast into the Lake of Fire, he will have lost all divine content that provided the features of angelic being.  Included are credibility, dependability, faithfulness, fidelity, self-will, trustworthiness, and verity.  Consider again Exodus 23:  20-22, Job 1 & 2, Ezekiel 34:  11-13, Zechariah 3:  1-3, Matthew 9:  35-36, Luke 4:  5-8, John 3:  31-36, James 4:  7, Jude 1:  6, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.  And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.  And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there:  go not after them, nor follow them.  For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.  (Luke 17:  20-24, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  A Culture of Judgment? (03/20/2014); Beyond Punishment (03/21/2014); Unprofitable Servants? (01/19/2014); An Unshakeable Kingdom? (11/26/2013); Why Jesus Used Parables (11/03/2013); Denying Baptism to Others (11/04/2013); Speaking of GOD (10/20/2010)

 

“Miracles Happen”, here are a few points that many find helpful when making study of the parables:

(1.)  Jesus explained that the use of parables was intended as what we would call a “screening” device that would activate divine processes of spiritual discernment.  Believers were to be identified on the basis of the spirit matter contained in their awareness and displayed through their self-will.  In this sense, the parables were more than merely a tool for scriptural clarifications and instruction; the parables were used for evaluation and judgment.

(2.)  The kingdom Jesus talks about is that first spoken of by Moses; later described in the earlier prophecies of Daniel, Isaiah, and others; promised through covenant with David; and proclaimed through John the Baptist.  The divine kingdom prepared by GOD is a spiritual condition, a set of ongoing divine operations, and a manifesting of eternal purposes.  The kingdom is not a geographical location, a physical place, a geopolitical state, or a finite territory (we say, bounded real property).

There is a lot more to be said, correctly put into place, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  Where governments and kingdoms are usually operations of law, the kingdom of GOD is to be experienced as an intimate relationship with divinity, and so we speak of becoming sons and daughters of GOD.  Aspects of the spirit makeup for created beings and living creatures must be permanently altered.  For mankind, there must be a new conception of GOD that comes by revelation, and reconstructs ones self-awareness as well.  Eternal life through the ministries of Jesus Christ that begins by water baptism (death of ones inborn nature, rebirth from divine DNA, so to speak) requires the perfection of mankind (we say, finished transformation; maturity):  There is to be balance, immortality, and incorruptibility.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith, and your integrity as a genuine believer.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.  (1st Peter 5:  8-9, KJV)
