Parables

Matt 13:13 This is why I speak to them (Pharisees) in parables: ‘Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. ~ A Parable is a real example of facts and events – not an imaginary or spiritual  way of speaking ~  (John 3:12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?)

  • Matt 13:15 this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ ~~ We must turn away from evil/anger/hate to Love to be healed. ~ Have compassion for all He has made.
