“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.
“A time of great darkness is coming upon the whole earth.
For the darkness upon men’s hearts has risen to such a height that evil will pervade the land. But you must know that the evil one that has planted the seeds there.
He is the one that plants seeds of doubt and fear. But if you have my word within you then those seeds will not take root.
Remember My Parable about the seeds that fell upon the pathway, for some took root, others were washed away, and still others were choked because of the cares and worries of this world.
Keep a watchful eye upon your thoughts, for those thoughts can become attitudes, and those attitudes can become habits.
The words you speak are like life and death. They can produce fruitfulness or rottenness. A tree is known by its fruits and so is a person’s life.
In these days of darkness, build yourselves up by studying My Word, and then when the great storms of darkness come, you will be equipped to deal with them.”
