TWO VERY YOUNG BOYS WERE ASKED IF THEY KNEW WHAT GOD'S NAME IS. BOTH OF THEM PROUDLY ANNOUNCED THEY DID! SOON THEY GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT, ONE OF THE BOYS SAID GOD'S NAME IS HAROLD, THE OTHER ONE INSISTED HIS NAME IS ANDY.

THE ONE THAT SAID GOD'S NAME IS HAROLD BACKED IT UP SAYING " I KNOW HIS NAME IS HAROLD, BECAUSE AT NIGHT I ALWAYS PRAY TO HIM, I SAY TO HIM 'OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HAROLD BE THY NAME'. "

THE SECOND BOY SAID "NO, NO HIS NAME IS ANDY, I KNOW BECAUSE I TALK TO HIM. MY MOM EVEN HAS A SONG THAT TELLS ME HIS NAME IS ANDY, THE SONG SAYS 'ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN.' " THE SONG HE IS REFERRING TO IS, IN THE GARDEN.

Excellent Grammyluv, I knew about the the leaves and the seasons and the chronology, I even knew about the fig tree symbolically representing Israel, but reading it the way you wrote it just sort of shed new light on this topic.

Mr 4:3 Hearken, Behold, there went out a sower to sow:

Mr 4:4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it.

Mr 4:5 And some fell on stoney ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:

Mr 4:6 But when the sun was up it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

Mr4: 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

Mr 4:8 And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mr 4:9 And he said unto them Let him that have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mr 4:10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.

WBN

Mark 4:3 Mr 4:3

 
1. Several things are to be observable; as,
 
1. How Christ begins and ends the parable with an admonition to diligent and serious attention.   Hearken, says Christ, verse 3. and he that hath ears to hear, let him hear, verse 9. This shows us at once the people's backwardness and negligence in applying their minds to hear and receive the word of God, and also shows the minister's duty to excite and stir up their people's diligence and attention in hearing God's word.
 
Observe, 2. What is the general scope and design of this parable; namely, to show that there are four several sorts of hearers of God's word, and but one good one, but one sort only who hear to saving advantage.
 
Now as to the matter of the parable.
 
Note, 1. The sower is Christ and his apostles; he the principal sower, they the subordinate seedsmen. Christ sows his own field, his ministers sow his field. He sows his own seed, they his seed. Woe unto us if we sow our own seed, not Christ's.
 
Note, 2. The seed sown, the word of God: fabulous legends and unwritten traditions, which the seedsmen of the church of Rome sow, these are not seed, but chaff, or their own seed, and not Christ's. Our Lord's field must be all sown with his own seed, with no mixt grain.
 
Learn, 1. That the word preached is like seed sown in the furrows of the field. As seed has a fructifying virtue in it, by which it increases and brings forth more of its own kind, so has the word of God a quickening power to regenerate and make alive dead souls.
 
Learn, 2. From this parable, that the seed of the word, where it is most plentifully sown, is not alike fruitful. Seed doth not thrive in all ground alike, neither doth the word fructify alike in the souls of men. There is a difference both from the nature of the soil and from the influence of the Spirit. For though no ground be naturally good, yet some is worse than other.
 
Learn, 3. That the cause of the word's unfruitfulness is very different; not the same in all. In some it is an hard heart to unbelief, in others the distracting cares of the world choke the word: like thorns which hinder the corn's growth, by overshadowing it, by drawing away the moisture and heart of the earth from it, and by hindering the influence of the sun from cherishing it. Unto which may be added the policy of Satan, that bird of prey, which follows God's plough, and steals away the precious seed of the word out of the furrows of their souls.
 
Learn, 4. That the best ground doth not bring forth increase alike. Some good ground brings forth more, others less; some thirty, some sixty, some an hundred-fold. In like manner, a person may be a profitable hearer of the word, although he doth not bring forth so great a proportion of fruit as others, provided he brings forth as much as he can.

Mr 4:1 And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

Mr 4:2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

WBN

Mark 4:1 Mr 4:1

 
The foregoing chapter acquainted us with the blasphemous slander which the scribes and Pharisees cast upon our blessed Saviour, accusing him of casting out devils by the help of the devil. This they did, no doubt, to discredit his person, and hinder his ministry; yet for all this the people follow him in great multitudes, more than ever, to hear him and be instructed by him.
 
Thence learn, 1. That all the power and malice of Satan and wicked men shall not be able to suppress the gospel, or hinder the free course of it; yea, the more it is opposed, the more it shall prevail: the more the scribes and Pharisees disgraced our Saviour, and vilified his doctrine, the more the people followed him in troops, to be partakers of his ministry.
 
Observe, 2. The place where our Lord now preached;  in a ship. Not that he declined the temple, or the synagogue, when he had the opportunity; but in the want of them Christ thought an house, a mountain, a ship, no unmeet place to preach in. It is not the place that sanctifies the ordinance, but the ordinance that sanctifies the place.
 
Observe, 3. Our Saviour's gestures in preaching; he sat, it being the custom of the Jewish church so to do, The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses' chair, Mt 23:2
 
Learn thence, That in indifferent rites and orders, touching the outward worship of God, we are to conform ourselves to the laudable custom and practice of the church in which we live, and whereof we are members. This did our Saviour, and so ought we.
 
Observe, 4. The manner of our Lord's preaching, it was by parables and similitudes, which was an ancient way of instructing among the Jews, and a very convincing way; working upon men's minds, memories, and affections, all at once, making the mind attentive, the memory retentive, and the auditors inquisitive after the interpretation of the parable. Some are of opinion our Saviour's parables were suited to his hearers' employments: and accordingly many of his hearers being husbandmen, he resembles his doctrine to seed sown in the field. For thus he speaks:  See Mr 4:3
