THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER
Matthew 13:3-9, 18-23
Shows us that we be a sower that receives the word on good ground.
THE PARABLE OF THE WHEAT AND TARES
Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
Shows us that the righteous and the counterfeit are all growing together, the tares are the counterfeit who look and act like believers, but in the end, they don’t produce righteous fruit. They look like wheat as they are growing, but in the end, they are not the same. Understand, when the angels come to gather the righteous, all those who offend, and practice lawlessness, those who are the tares, will be cast into fire. If you follow the Parable of the Sower and grow your faith on good ground, you will be fine and counted amongst the righteous.
THE PARABLE OF THE MUSTARD SEED
Goes along with the wheat and tares. This reaffirms that the number of people who will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven will start off very small and seem like they are the least compared to everyone else in the world, but in the end this group will be large and prosperous. Make sure you are counted as one who inherits the kingdom.
THE PARABLE OF THE LEAVEN
Shows that the kingdom of heaven, those of us who are of the church, are growing the numbers in the Kingdom, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, not by forced conversion or requirement.
THE PARABLE OF THE HIDDEN TREASURE & THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE
Matthew 13:44 Matthew 13:45-46
Emphasizes the value of the Kingdom once it is received. If you want to serve Him, you will have to give up the world. Build up your treasures in heaven.
THE PARABLE OF THE DRAGNET
Shows As a disciple all you must keep doing is preaching His Word. You do not have to tell others they will not make it into heaven or they are not worthy. Just keep casting out your net.
THE PARABLE OF THE UNFORGIVING SERVANT
Teaches us about forgiveness. If someone seeks forgiveness, forgive them. Show them grace so that you are not in danger of not being forgiven. Don’t be one that follows Yahshua and His Words, but still falls short of this. You must have forgiveness.
THE PARABLE OF THE WORKERS IN THE VINEYARD
Shows us that Salvation is not something Israel owns, but it is given by Elohim and He chooses how He wants to award it.
THE PARABLE OF THE 10 VIRGINS
Shows the need for wisdom. This parable illustrates that the foolish ones will not be prepared for His kingdom and the doors will be shut on them. Do not be foolish and not be prepared for Him. Like the 5 virgins who lamps went out, if you try to prepare for Him too late, you could miss Him. Don’t be foolish. Be wise!
THE PARABLE OF THE 10 TALENTS
Is an illustration that shows the need for faith. It illustrates the faithfulness required of Elohim’s servants. Make sure if the Father has given you ability or gifts, make sure you use it for Him and His glory. Don’t lack faith and feel you must use it for the world in order for you to be taken care of. Be faithful and use your talents for Him and His glory. He gave it to you and He wants you to use it to build His kingdom. If you do not use it, it will be taken from you and given to someone else.
