"What happens when His Word, "THE WORD OF GOD" is received into your mind?" Does it fall upon deaf ears, void of understanding?
Do you know what it means to have "eyes to see and ears to hear"? It is imperative that you do, else with closed eyes and clogged ears you will not be able to see nor understand.
The question then is, "What happens when His Word is received into your mind?" Does it fall upon deaf ears, void of understanding? Do you "hear" His words but are just too busy trying to make a living or put out fires to take the time to study His Word? Or... do you have "ears to hear"?
Pay close attention to what Christ teaches us in the next few verses because He is now going to explain what it means to "have ears to hear". Again, one must have those "ears to hear" in order to rise to the level of understanding the parables Christ spoke and hence the Word of God... else he or she remains in darkness which is to remain ignorant of the truth. Consider therefore the following question posed by His disciples who came to Him:Matthew 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. And the disciples came, and said unto Him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
Are you beginning to see how the parables play a part in this? "Whomsoever will" must wake up and take action and go to Him... for only Jesus Christ, the Word of God, can heal their deafness and heal their blindness. So "Wake up" Christian before it is too late! Stop listening to men who teach you to follow their church traditions and instead turn to your Father's Word "Today" and hear His voice! If you do, then the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven shall be opened unto you! Otherwise, you can just continue to suffer in ignorance and stumble in darkness.
He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.Matthew 13:12
For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.They do not have the spiritual understanding of God's Word because they listen to men instead of "hearing His voice"!Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.They hear His words with their ears but they have no spiritual ears with understanding from above as to what they mean. To that end, this next verse explains why they do not have those eyes to see and ears to hear. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:The eyes of those who do "see" and the ears of those who do "hear" shall be blessed indeed. Do you want to be blessed? For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.Happy you will be if you seek Him to hear His voice...Today. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.Do you understand how privileged and blessed we are in this final generation? Many prophets and righteous men have desired to "see" Christ and "hear" His voice. The prophets all wrote of Him and foretold of His coming and desired to see Him and understand the things He has revealed unto us. Take the prophet Daniel for example: Daniel 12:8-9 "And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?  And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end." However, in the time of the end, the "wise" shall understand (see Dan. 12:10). For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Question: When will the daily sacrifice be taken away.
Answer: When Satan gets here claiming, he is God, and most pro-claiming Christians believe him; No longer feeling the need for the real Jesus in there heart!Rev. 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.At the appointed time of the 6th Trump Michael will stand up and cast Satan and his angels to this earth.
 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Most pro-claiming Christians will be deceived! They'll believe Satan is Christ returned!
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
What day? THE DAY CHRIST RETURNS!
Thes. 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God
Jesus Christ also told us in Mat. 24 and Mark 13 about this abominable one who shall come before He returns, and when he does, stay away from him.Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)  Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Some of us, who study our Bible and know how to tell the difference between what is holy (Jesus) and what is profane (Satan), will know Satan is not our Lord and not bow down to him.
Daniel 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
45 days longer, after Christ will have returned; His Millennial Kingdom will have started. Satan will be gone! Locked up for 1000 years. Praise The Lord!Here is some good news! Jesus has shortened the number of days Satan is allowed to claim he is Christ.
Here is what Jesus said concerning those days when the "abomination of desolation", the abominable desolator, i.e. Satan, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stands in the holy place claiming to be God:Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Our people are not prepared either mentality nor spiritually to face the supernatural. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.The actual time when Satan will reign on earth has been shortened to the time of the locusts, which is a 5 month period as documented in Rev. 9.
These guys are really, really good at what they do best, which is to lead people astray!
 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
That is what they will be saying, "Isn't it wonderful that Jesus has returned to Jerusalem?"
Do not believe it. Remember we documented in 1 Thes. 4 and 1 Cor. 15 that when the real Jesus Christ returns at the last Trump, the 7th Trump, then in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, we who are alive and remain unto His coming will ALL be changed from our flesh bodies to our spiritual bodies?
So if you are still in this flesh body, know from the Word of God that Jesus Christ has not returned.
Satan and his angels are masters of deception.
Remember, Satan's angels are also supernatural and will be posing as ministers. though it be Satan's version of religion they will be promoting.
Want an idea of how good Satan is? Get a load of this trick:Rev. 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
What a show they will put on!
The Greek word for "fire" is "pur" which means "lightning".
Satan, disguised as Jesus Christ, will be able to perform great signs and wonders like calling "lightning" down from the sky!
Wow, he commands the weather!
What effect will this have on people?
As it is written, those "miracles" will deceive the people into believing he is Jesus: And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.To all my fellow Christians: Please! Please! STUDY YOUR BIBLE!
