He put another parable before them saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man and took and sowed in his field. Matthew 13:31
It is no secret this parable. Right? We all know that it only takes a mustard seed to have faith. We are taught that if you just have that tiny mustard seed and just believe that Jesus came and was raised from the dead in 3 days that we are saved. You repent of your sins and all things are good. You just have to keep repenting. Right?
As it is, I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting. For you left a Godly grief, so that you suffered no loss through us. 2 Corinthians 7:9
You get sick and tired of being sick and tired and your at a breaking point of Life. There are 3 things that people do.
1. Blame GOD; then go to GOD confess of Sin through repentance be saved because that is what we are taught.
2. Start blaming other people, not taking responsibility for the things they do after giving their lives to GOD.
3. They continue to live an ungodly life thinking that because they repented and it’s ok.
Why do people do this? Because you have not been taught the whole story of the Mustard seed. Or perhaps you have I don’t know. What I am saying is I would like to give you a different perspective about this seed the seed of Faith.
It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches. Matthew 13:32
Not only does this set the scene of being strong you can grow in your faith however even the animals love you. With this all animals become your friend. I know for some your thinking oh whatever is this girl talking about. It’s the Spiritual link between Man and beast.
Consecrate to me all the first born. Whatever is the first to open the womb among the people of Israel, let both of man and beast be mine. Exodus 13:2
Why do I refer back to this verse? It is to understand that from the beginning of time Everything belongs to GOD. When he speaks about Israel it is us he speaks of. We are all descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and of Jacob.
“Keep in mind; when using the word OF in this writing it is speaking of a state of being.”
From generation to generation life happens right? Do you not think that life did not happen with the three named above. When you think about it life happened with Adam and Eve. In reality with GOD.
For all things come from GOD. In my Spiritual Journey GOD has taught me Faith is the foundation of the world, earth and universe whatever it is to you. . Very little find it and it is hard to obtain. Especially when you were taught that a tiny mustard seed of faith is going to be sufficient enough to have the life you want through repenting. Which in fact maybe be true so you think for some people. GOD is blessing you and keeping true to his Promises because of your repentance because you are doing the work. You are overcoming that addiction, overcoming a tribulation or tragedy.
Whatever it is for you. This is the importance and the uniqueness of GODS Love for us, and the relationship that is build between you and him.
This is another reason why what you think is not wrong nor right and what I think is not wrong nor right because of the different relationship we each have with GOD.
For those whom he knew he also predestined to be confirmed to the image of his son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:29
You must start realizing the importance of why things happen to you. Your circumstances is what make who you are. Right?
As you continue down this road of healing through the Lord Jesus Christ and you start to trust him. Your trusting him to keep you Sober, from sex addiction, gambling, from whatever it is that you went through or continue to go through. That tiny mustard seed is growing. Inch by inch it is growing you are getting stronger.
You don’t look at it that way because that’s not how you were taught. Only that if you repent of your sins that you are saved.
In reality your trust in Jesus is growing because things are getting better. You have a testimony to give about the blessings, the peace that you feel. The calmness of your soul.
As time goes on GOD is showing you more however you don’t see it. You don’t see it because it’s not what you are taught.
With that said, it is through the 10 Commandments, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes I am going to teach you just that.
For now think about how that tiny mustard seed can fully bloom.
And he said to the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and he had spit on his eyes and laid hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?”
And he looked up and said, “I see people walking, but they look like trees, walk-ing.” Mark 8:24
Now, omgosh isn’t that powerful to know that we are all trees. You and I have deep rooted seeds of past generations that when taught right can be turned into faith.
Then Jesus laid hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Mark 8:25
GOD GAVE US EYES TO SEE AND EARS TO HEAR.
Much love my friends.
My name is Melissa and I am an imitator of GOD.
