stones, thorns or good soil…

And to Adam he said, Because you have hearkened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it: cursed is the ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and you shall eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and to dust shall you return. Genesis 3:17-19

long ago, when th Lord sent me to th net, i one time told Him how i felt like i was stumbling and falling on hard rocks and there was no good place to walk here bc there was so much stones in the way…

the Lord told me how every battle is fought on a different terrain, sometimes desert, sometimes swamp, sometimes mountains, etc, and that this was stony ground and even tho i felt like i was stumbling i wasnt, and i wasnt cast down and i wouldnt fall…and so i continued in th way He brought me…

He alone does th fighting, not us, He is th conqueror and He gives us th victory (Himself)

And he spake many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:  But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.  Who has ears to hear, let him hear.  And the disciples came, and said to him, Why speak you unto them in parables?  He answered and said to them, Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has.   Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.  Matthew 13:3 -13

long time after that, th Lord told me how th parable of the stony, thorny and good soils isnt about different ppl but about different places in our own hearts which crowd out th new heart (or try to anyway, since Christ wont be crowded out but conquers all);  we all ate of the tree of death and we all are under that curse; we cant receive Him in stoney places or thorny places and the enemy steals from us whatever is not understood (th seed that falls by th way)…God is the husbandman and He alone has planted th seed in the earth and do we remember that He wants His whole crop and all what is His?  and Christ wont lose one that tht th Father gave Him…He lookin fa a good harvest and He gonna get it too…

and when th Lord delivers us outta sin and death, we show up wit all kindsa stuff that we cant take wit us…stones (stone hearts or places in the heart) and thorns (th cares of this world)…and He clears th land ( we are given a new heart; just as our minds are renewed thought by thought, moment by moment, revelation by revelation, so our new heart is uncovered [revealed] as it is cleared of stones [they rolled away the stone and lazarus came forth; th stone was rolled away and Christ wasnt in th tomb  but was risen]), so to speak, so that there is good soil fa the Word to produce fruit…

the ground was cursed in adam…th ground that was cursed WAS adam (dust to dust, formed from the earth, death instead of life, cast outta the garden instead of in th presence of God who walked wit adam in th garden)…so that by the sweat of his brow (works, his own labor) he would eat bread (not living bread, which cant be worked fa or earned but is given from God, but merely earthly, fleshly bread [living by bread alone] of th earth [puffed up wit pharisee leaven])

before Christ is given to anyone, this is a picture of adam’s life…none of this comes from outside of him, but from the spirit of this world (birds of th air, spiritual wickedness in high places) that wanna make his throne like God’s (in man [adam]) to the stones and thorns– its all IN adam, and so th battle is IN him…and th inside of th cup cant be cleaned from th outside, and when only th outside of th cup is cleaned, thts a whitewashed tomb, a hypocrite who looks like one thang but is really somethin else inside…looks like a sheep but is a ravening wolf…

the birds come [spirit of this world] and eat the seed fallen by th way…and so nothing grows in those barren spots…birds, fowls of th air (spirit of this world), made from th same earth adam was formed from…satan was cast into th earth, cast outta heaven, and fell like a stone to the earth and a third of th stars wit him…and this is th picture of adam…

but Christ blood poured out blood from His head (He sweated blood in th garden, and by th crown of thorns He bled and so is th remission of sin by the shedding of blood) and broke th curse…

th enemy  (satan) puts stones (as gravestones, dead places, marking and sealing tombs; being stoned as paul was stoned twice yet didnt die, th rigors of death that are hardened by experience in adamic life) and th ground cant produce the good fruit of Christ…but here is th Lord God planting (to strike in [th earth])…and removes not merely th stone, but the whole stoney heart and gives a new heart (Christ in us, the hope of glory, revealed in us right where the stones use to be; He prepares a table fa me in the presence of my enemies; eat His body [bread from heaven, living bread and drink His blood, th life [Spirit of God] is in th blood, th living water, water from above not water from beneath)

and then theres th thorny soil…th cares of this world that choke out th planted (Christ is the planting of th Lord, Christ in us; He is th tree planted by rivers of water that bear fruit all year and we are like Him [we will be like th tree planted by rivers [from the throne/proceeds from the mouth, of God]) Word and threaten fruit…again the sower who is also the reaper is come, and we cast our cares (thorns, His crown of thorns) upon Him bc He cares fa us…and good soil is laid down (firmament from heaven that separates water from above from water from beneath) where once were thorns, th new heart (Christ in us) is revealed IN us, th cares of this world cast on Him, and th new heart (Christ in us) produces much good fruit, not bad fruit, as we are grafted into the tree of life and will bear fruit unto righteousness…

just as adam battles others of his kind to conquer sin and death and be made whole (religion, life outside of Christ), so its been preached that these soils are different ppl, and so its been wrongly used to point out in others what is really in us all…takin th gospel to the whole earth is takin th gospel (th good news, Jesus Christ) to th world IN us, its IN us that Christ is revealed, its IN us that we are conquered, stone by stone, barren place by barren place, thorn by thorn, and its Christ alone who conquers us…

if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, th old (adam) is passed (dead in trespass and sin and crucified with Christ), th new is come (Christ in us, we are born of th Spirit of God and th Spirit of God indwells us)…walkin in th newness of life is just that…walkin in th renewed mind, (th mind of Christ) after the Spirit (Christ in us), sowing to the Spirit not to flesh (God sows to th Spirit;  adam sows to flesh)…and He causes us to walk in His (new heart) ways…the hidden man of th heart…we die and Christ lives…we decrease and Christ increases…th stone cut without hands (Jesus Christ) takes over the whole earth [all of each of us and all of us together is the earth [new earth and new heaven, One in God] and the fruit of th earth [fruit of righteousness, Jesus Christ] that is th Lord’s]

we have this testimony…God gave us eternal life and this life is in His Son…
