What the PARABLES REVEAL

<"parable-letterpress-word-written-vintage-type-image44065356">In this book, I will share ten of the approximately 60 parables that Jesus Christ used in His teaching. I will reveal the mystery of the parables through their proper interpolation. But first I need to define four groups of people – Unbelievers, Believers, Make Believers, and True Believers – which will reveal the eternal destination of any and all human beings around the world regardless as to their ethnicity, race, or supposed religious beliefs.
An “unbeliever” represents all sinners/humans around the world regardless of their ethnicity, race, or spiritual beliefs. (1) All people are born as sinners and our eternal destiny is eternal separation from the ONLY true, living, loving God (2) with our eternal residence in Hell. (3)
(1) Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives. (Romans 3:23) AMP
(2) But the Lord is the true God and the God of truth (the God Who is Truth). He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, and the nations are not able to bear His indignation. (Jeremiah 10:10) AMP
(2a) He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love. (1 John 4:8) AMP
(3) And they shall go forth and gaze upon the dead bodies of the [rebellious] men who have stepped over against Me{God}; for their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind. (Isaiah 66:24) AMP
(3a) And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be afraid of Him {God} who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Gehenna). (Matthew 10:28) AMP
A “Believer” is a sinner who has just accepted the bountiful free gift of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior according to the process of justification and is a new spiritual creation, (4) but he/she MUST seek further teachings from the Bible and the guidance/ Counsel from God the Holy Spirit and the multitude of counselors from within the Bride Church (5) to immediately start the process of sanctification which allows God to set them apart according to His Word in His foreknown and predestined plans/ministry for them. (6)
(4) For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) AMP
(4a) Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!                        (2 Corinthians 5:17) AMP
(5) Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word {Bible} is Truth. (John 17:17) AMP

(5a) The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.
(John 14:17) AMP
(5b) But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you. (John 14:26) AMP
(5c) Where there is no counsel, purposes are frustrated, but with many counselors they are accomplished. (Proverbs 15:22) AMP
(6) Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action),  So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) AMP
(6a) Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth. (2 Timothy 2:15) AMP
(6b) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11) AMP
A “Make Believer” is a sinner who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior, but they have refused to participate in the process of sanctification/to grow up/mature in their faith during their life time. They do NOT read their Bible daily, they do NOT go to church or Bible studies, they may pray, but their prayer requests are NOT according to His will, (7) they may have fallen prey to false teachings from false teachers, (8) and yet they believe they are “saved.” In essence they will be judged as an Unbeliever/an antichrist because they refuse to listen to and participate/grow up in their sanctification process, and they continue to live their lives like they used to before they accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. (9)
(7) Then will they cry to the Lord, but He will not answer them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, because they have made their deeds evil.  [Isa 1:15.] (Micah 3:4) AMP
(7a) And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him.                  (1 John 5:14-15) AMP
(8) A little leaven (a slight inclination to error, or a few false teachers) leavens the whole lump [it perverts the whole conception of faith or misleads the whole church]. (Galatians 5:9) AMP
(8a) Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight]. For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]! (Hebrews 5:11-13) AMP
(8b) BUT ALSO [in those days] there arose false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among yourselves, who will subtly and stealthily introduce heretical doctrines (destructive heresies), even denying and disowning the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1) AMP
(9) For many imposters (seducers, deceivers, and false leaders) have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge (confess, admit) the coming of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) in bodily form. Such a one is the imposter (the seducer, the deceiver, the false leader, the antagonist of Christ) and the antichrist. Look to yourselves (take care) that you may not lose (throw away or destroy) all that we and you have labored for, but that you may [persevere until you] win and receive back a perfect reward [in full]. (2 John 7-8) AMP
(9a) Boys (lads), it is the last time (hour, the end of this age). And as you have heard that the antichrist [he who will oppose Christ in the guise of Christ] is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen, which confirms our belief that it is the final (the end) time. They went out from our number, but they did not [really] belong to us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us. But [they withdrew] that it might be plain that they all are not of us. But you have been anointed by [you hold a sacred appointment from, you have been given an unction from] the Holy one, and you all know [the Truth] or you know all things. I write to you not because you are ignorant and do not perceive and know the Truth, but because you do perceive and know it, and [know positively] that nothing false (no deception, no lie) is of the Truth. Who is [such a] liar as he who denies that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah)? He is the antichrist (the antagonist of Christ), who [habitually] denies and refuses to acknowledge the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:18-22)  AMP
(9b) Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name? And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]. [Ps 6:8.] (Matthew 7:21-23) AMP
A “True Believer” is a Christian who has matured/grown up in their process of sanctification of their faith to know Jesus Christ not only as their personal Savior but also as their Lord God and Master which reveals His Sovereignty in their life, (10) and they are focused on their kingdom of God/heaven work around the world of winning and discipling of lost souls/sinners to Jesus Christ. (11) They have victory over sin and death (12) and will be glorified with Christ upon His judgment and acceptance of them. (13)
(10) She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Savior], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God]. (Matthew 1:21) AMP
(10a) Thomas answered Him, My Lord and my God! Jesus said to him, Because you have seen Me, Thomas, do you now believe (trust, have faith)? Blessed and happy and to be envied are those who have never seen Me and yet have believed and adhered to and trusted and relied on Me. (John 20:28-29) AMP
(10b) And don’t be called ‘Master,’ for only one is your master, even the Messiah. Matthew 23:10 TLB
(10c) To keep all His precepts unsullied and flawless, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), Which [appearing] will be shown forth in His own proper time by the blessed, only Sovereign (Ruler), the King of kings and the Lord of lords, (1 Timothy 6:14-15) AMP
(11) And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end. (Matthew 24:14) AMP
(11a) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30) NKJV
(11b) And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt 13:43.] (Daniel 12:3) AMP
(12) Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power [upon the soul] through [the abuse of] the Law. But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose]. (1 Corinthians 15:56-58) AMP
(13) And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. (Romans 8:17) AMP
(13a) I CHARGE [you] in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, Who is to judge the living and the dead, and by (in the light of) His coming and His kingdom: (2 Timothy 4:1) AMP

I have defined four different groups of people and their spiritual walk with the only true, living, loving God through their life. As I continue to reveal the hidden mysteries of the parables, we will see these four groups in varying degrees represented in the parables.
The Unbelievers represent ALL of humanity and are unsaved because they are born into sin. They have NOT accepted nor acknowledged Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and their eternal destiny is eternal separation from God. (14)
Believers are those who are justified and saved through their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and their eternal destiny. (14)
Make Believers are those who are saved but do not participate in the process of sanctification/mature in their faith in Jesus Christ, and their eternal destiny. (13)
True Believers are those who are justified and are working in the process of sanctification/maturing in their faith in Jesus Christ and the bearing of eternal fruit – winning lost souls/sinners to Jesus Christ and discipling them to a mature faith therefore being glorified with Jesus Christ, and their eternal destiny. (13)
(13) He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation — he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in and trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christ’s name.] (John 3:18) AMP

I ask you to think about these four groups. Which one are you. (14)
