Jesus, Himself, explained to His followers why he taught in parables, which is comparing earthly things with spiritual revelations. He used the parable of the sower of seeds to amplify the truths to them. He told them first the parable about a farmer sowing seeds on different kinds of grounds, on a path, rocky soil, among thorns, and on good soil. (Matthew 13:3-9) He told them whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.
His disciples inquired why he taught in parables. He said that the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven had been given to the disciples but not to many others. He said that to a person who has revelations, that to that person will more revelations be given and also an abundance. Then He said to the person who has no revelations, that even what that person has will be taken away. He said that He spoke in parables because the other people don't see, don't hear and don't understand spiritual things. (Matthew 13:10-14)
Jesus described the religious leaders whose eyes, ears and understanding were blinded and deafened by the devil using powerless religion. (Matthew 13:15) He told His disciples that they were blessed because they had seeing eyes, hearing ears and minds that understood Him. (Matthew 13:16-17) He said that many people who came before them longed to see, hear and understand like the disciples did, but they could not.
He launched into a more full revelation of the parable of the farmer who sowed seed. (Matthew 13:18-23) He explained that anyone who hears the words of the kingdom like he was teaching them and they don't understand, the devil comes and snatches the truths away. The person who receives the words on rocky places receives it with joy, but there is no root in himself, so when tribulations and persecutions come the person is offended. The person who receives the words among thorns are the ones who hears the words of kingdom living but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the truths and the person becomes unfruitful in blessings, as in the rich man finding it impossible to enter My kingdom living. He said that the people who hear the words of life on good ground and understand it will bring forth 30, 60 or 100 fold of the fruit of My Spirit in their lives. In other words, there will be a transformation in those people into becoming My images in the world, becoming loving, peaceful, joyful, good, kind, merciful, and patient. Because of those fruit of My Spirit, the paths from My blessings to them will never be barricaded by the devil. Blessings will flow unfettered.
The more My words become flesh in My children, producing My witnesses in the world, the more the benefits of My kingdom living become reality in their lives. My guidance through the tutoring by My Holy Spirit will change your thoughts, attitudes and actions until you only speak what you hear Me speak and you only do what you hear Me do because you don't follow the voice of a spiritual thief and a spiritual liar, the devil. You only speak and act like My child because you only listen to My Fatherly advice.
When you hear My personal revelations to you, you are restored to the same communion with Me that Adam experienced before he allowed the devil to enter the earth. You will be guided by My Spirit and be led by My Spirit because you know that I have the words of life. (John 6:68) Blessings will flow into your life in different ratios, depending upon the ratios of fruit produced in your life. All of the plants of blessings for your future are in the seeds of the fruit that you allow My Holy Spirit to produce in you today. My seeds grow Life in you and in others.
Your Father of Life
