Scripture: Mark 4:10-12
Mark 4:10-12 says, “But when He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parable. And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so that’ Seeing they may see and not perceive, And hearing they may hear and not understand; Lest they should turn, And their sins be forgiven them.’” The book of Mark says that the foundational mystery of the Kingdom is all structured on seedtime and harvest. It is built on one thing. The one thing that will never fail that will always work is seedtime and harvest. When we take the eternal seed of God’s Word and we sow it in our hearts, it will come up! If we take the time to sow it, it will produce. Most people do not take the time. Church today puts everything on a screen for us so that we never have to memorize anything and consequently we have church people right now that have no benefit of this foundational mystery of the Kingdom. Church services are all pre-planned and packaged. They are streamlined presentations, consequently not many are making their way prosperous and not many are having good success. The mystery of the Kingdom is disregarded. God told Joshua, You need to learn to farm your spirit and then the Word/the seed will come up. Joshua did it, and saw the fruit. The question is, will we?
