A Very Intense Parable


Many of us grew up reading parables and listening to our parents tell us parables to teach us moral truth.  People back in 30 A.D. were no different.  Jesus understood this, and many times when He spoke to people He spoke in parables.  He did this, so people could clearly understand what He was saying.  In Matthew chapter 13, Jesus tells a parable about a man sowing seed in his field.  The man sowed good seed, but an enemy came and sowed weeds among the good seed.  Later in the same chapter, Jesus explains what the parable means and it is chilling.  If you do not know Jesus yet, please listen to this very loving warning that Jesus wants all mankind to hear!  This is known in the Bible as “The Parable of the Weeds.”

“Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.  But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.  When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

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?’

‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them.  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

His disciples wanted to know the meaning of the parable, so they asked Jesus to explain it.  Jesus answered their request, and everyone in the whole world should take heed of the explanation He gave.  Please listen carefully.

“Then 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.”

He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.  The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom.  The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil.  The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.  The 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.  They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.  He who has ears, let him hear.”

Matthew 13:36-43

Do you hear?!  Please take heed of this warning!  God loves you and He died for you on a cross, so you could be forgiven of your sins and have eternal life!  Jesus did not come to condemn you.  He came to save you!  Those who do not receive God’s gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus will be separated from those who believe and thrown into the fire!  You do not need to be found among the weeds!  Choose Jesus and you will not be condemned!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16-18

Sin is so serious that Jesus had to die and shed His blood to save us!  Sin has wages and those wages lead to death.  Death or perishing is living eternally separated from God!  Do not choose death!  Choose eternal life!

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

You receive God’s gift of eternal life by faith in Jesus.  Lay down your sins at the foot of the cross and proclaim Jesus is Lord!  Believe in Jesus and you will be saved!  You will not be uprooted and thrown into the fire!

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:23-24

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”

Romans 8:1-2

If you don’t believe in Jesus yet, please know that at one time I too did not believe.  I was trapped in my sins and I hated God and Christians.  I don’t know why God chose to reveal all the supernatural things He chose to reveal to me and my family, but I do know He wants me to testify to it and warn people!  It is all true folks!  Every word in the Bible is true!  I didn’t believe it either and I thought it was a bunch of crazy talk, until we moved into a house possessed by a demon!

That evil we lived with came straight from hell, which is a very real place where the devil and his demons dwell.  Jesus Christ defeated that evil and He set us free!!!  Two years later, God revealed His holy angels to me and showed me that the Bible is being completely literal when it says they will lift us up in their hands!  That is exactly what the angel did for me when the guy was chasing me with a butcher knife on the streets of Denver!  I literally felt the angel’s hands put pressure under my armpits as the angel picked me up and flew me to safety!  Yes, I said picked up and yes, I said flew!  God’s angels are very big and very strong and nothing is impossible for God!  Heaven is very real and it is more beautiful and peaceful than any of us can imagine!  Do you understand why I am so pumped up about Jesus now?!!!

“For he will command his angels

concerning you

to guard you in all your ways;

they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot

against a stone.”

Psalm 91:11-12

I don’t care if people think I’m crazy.  God didn’t tell me to care what people think about me when I share my testimony.  He just told me to share it.

I am warning you with all my heart, please repent before it is too late!  Heaven and hell are very real, and I learned that in the most intense supernatural way at a time when I wanted nothing to do with that truth.  We are sinful and only Jesus can save us.  We have to either accept Him or reject Him.  Jesus used the parable of the weeds to let us know exactly what happens when we reject Him!  You do not want to be in hell with the devil and his demons!  Please listen to me crying out!  Living in that house was a nightmare!  Do not play around with your soul!

I preach the Gospel so passionately because I know 100% without any doubt that everything God’s Word talks about is real!  For whatever reason, God put it right in my face and proved it to me!  Praise God for His mercy!  I am so unworthy and I used to hate Him, but He poured out His love on me!  Thank You Jesus!!!

I am sharing what God has shown me, so that people who have never had supernatural experiences can know that it is all real!  If you had lived through the terror our family lived through, you would run to Jesus too!  I truly hope that my testimony helps you make a more informed decision about your soul!

What God did for me with the angels in 1998 and the miracle to save my life when I stopped breathing in 2012 are events that I think about every day.  Those memories have given me great strength through all my suffering with Celiac and I pray it helps many come to Jesus!  Jesus is very real and He is alive!  He was with me when I stopped breathing and He told me, “It’s okay.”  I was completely safe and protected and He put me back in my body by the power of the Holy Spirit, which came into our bedroom like a mighty wind and flowed into my mouth bringing me back to life!  Thank You Jesus!  I’m testifying Lord and I’m not ashamed of You!  I am acknowledging your Holy Name before all mankind!  May Your will be done Lord!

It’s all real folks!  We are all sinful and we all need a Savior.  We need God’s forgiveness and the only way to be forgiven and saved is through faith in Jesus Christ.  We cannot work our way into Heaven through good works.  I am just a sinner saved by grace and the only righteousness in me is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords!  Jesus loves you!  Believe in Jesus and He will save you just like He saved a sinner like me!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

Grace and peace to you all!
