Overcome by fear despairing loss, hope gone Peter denies Him, Judas walks beside the true Messiah, daily impervious to truth, ignorance succeeds, Pharisees deny their Messiah, Jerusalem cries, overcome by grief, John couldn't deny his tears, his Messiah dies, dementia cries out, darkness envelops the cross death's grip shakes the earth, heartbreaking loneliness, despair descends to hell's depth, where is my hope? We walk every day beside the true Messiah, impervious to truth, YET>
a single voice sings, illuminating darkness with salvation's song, the morning light hums, the eternal wrapped in clay, has set terra free. His message rings true of grace's gift freely given, yet, honors free will. The song of the church is the gospel story of God's eternal plan. The harvest complete, the church caught up, Israel will once again have a hand in redeeming Man.
Hebrew 4:1 For the word of God is living and active, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Matthew 13: 18-32, Parable of the Sower, Tares among the Wheat and the Mustard Seed, denial and faith to overcome. Denial or Acceptance come from the heart, here is an excerpt from: https://crossref-it.info/articles/52/seed-sowing Parable of the Sower/ and the Mustard Seed Parable Excerpt "Jesus uses the idea of seed metaphorically in a parable to explain how different people receive the word of God. Christ, who sows the word of God in human hearts, scatters the seed, but some falls on stony ground or is choked by weeds. However, those who receive and understand the word of God are like the good soil which nurtures the seed (Matthew 13:3-9). In another parable he compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard-seed, which is ‘the smallest of all seeds' but which, as it grows, develops into a well-established tree (Matthew 13:31-32). (See also Big ideas: Parables.) Jesus also used the image of a seed to explain how his death and resurrection (see Big ideas: Death and resurrection) would have a significant impact on the world, resulting in the redemption of humankind (see Big ideas: Redemption, salvation). He explained that, just as a seed would not grow unless it was buried, so he had to die and be buried before his word could be spread: ‘unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds' (John 12:24). Sowing and judgement The product of a seed is also used symbolically to stand for the natural consequences of one's actions, both positive as well as negative. Paul warned that ‘people reap what they sow. Those who sow to please their sinful nature … will reap destruction; those who sow to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life' (Galatians 6:8).
