“And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixty fold, some thirty fold,” Matthew 13:3-8.
(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a Bible and as I was looking down upon it, the pages were being turned one by one very quickly. Then I saw the enemy himself, like a sneaky creature, trying to come and take the word away.
He kept trying and trying, and then the Bible was lit with fire, and this fire encompassed all around the bible, and yet, the bible itself would not burn. The enemy’s face changed, for he knew that he was defeated, and then he left. Then the vision faded.)
The LORD then said:
“My Word is alive and is on fire, and when it’s alive and on fire, the enemy cannot come and steal it from you.
How many times has the enemy come to try and steal my word away from you? What soil have you received the word in?
I tell you that rocky soil will prevent it from sinking down in. I tell you that the cares of this world will also prevent this.
But if you realize that it is more than just a book, then you will see that it is alive and on fire.
Allow those words to soak in. Eat them, and let them become a part of you. Then the enemy will flee from you.”
