Parables of the Kingdom part II (Matthew 13:44-52) | back

 44Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. The field is the world; and there is no greater treasure in all the world than Gods truth.

 45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Priceless!

 46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Putting nothing else first before the glory of His Word. Nothing else comes before truth and understanding. Worldly people will not understand truth, or put it to good use by researching and sharing it with others.

 47Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Valuable and worthless.

 48Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. The analogy here is to not partake of scavengers. Separate the clean from the unclean.

 49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just. Separation of the wicked from the Godly.

 50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Because people have been deceived, they never new the working plan of salvation from God. (The minute then hear a little truth, or need to study God's Word, they are turned off).

 51Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. All these things! Not just pick and choose.

 52Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. We need the old testament and the new testament gospel. (The old testament seals the new and the new testament completes the old).
