Inherit Eternal Life: Leaving Everything and Ever-Lasting Promise — Matthew 19 #4

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”

28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[e] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.

Promise of Eternal Life, Returns and Rewards Matthew 19:29, Mark 10:28-30

30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

God Gives a King’s Heart: Gold Crown — Psalm 21 #1

Psalm 21

1 How the king rejoices in your strength, O LORD!
He shouts with joy because you give him victory.
2 For you have given him his heart’s desire;
you have withheld nothing he requested.

3 You welcomed him back with success and prosperity.
You placed a crown of finest gold on his head.

Psalm 21:3

Kingdom of Heaven: Secret Seed Words #5

Are we wheat or weeds? Good or bad seeds?

The Parable of the Weeds

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.

25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.

26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “ ‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “ ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them.


30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’ ”

Matthew 13:24-30

We are all sown as seeds with the Word of Jesus. Christ is the good farmer in the parable, and the field represents the world.

The good seeds are the people of the Kingdom of Heaven. The weeds are people of the Evil One.

And angels are symbolized by the harvesters, just as Jesus explains exclusively as the crowds are exiting away, to his disciples, for those who and are receptive to His Word, who have ears to hear, listen, and understand:

The Parable of the Weeds Explained

36Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”

37He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.


38The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one,


39and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

40“As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.


41The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.


42They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


43Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Matthew 13:36-43
