Scripture Reading: MATTHEW 13:36
Have you ever wondered why the LORD Jesus spoke in parables? One example would be the parable of the “tares of the field.” After speaking this parable, the crowd left and Jesus went into the house. His disciples shortly joined Him and asked for an explanation of the parable. Jesus only gave the interpretation of the parable to His disciples. Why? Because the crowd was not there; they had been sent away.
One of the questions that was asked by His closest followers, was why He spoke in parables. His answer would be astounding and very confusing to the modern-day Judeo-Christian. It would be hard for them to understand. For the Messiah said that it was only His disciples that were granted to know about the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to the crowd it was not granted. What? Jesus said that the multitudes were not given the opportunity to know about the mysteries of the kingdom of God.
After the war between the two nations, the Union versus the Confederate States of America (1861-1865), the United States was in so much debt that it became bankrupt and as a result became a corporation in 1871. `It is well settled that the “UNITED STATES” has been a corporation, since it was incorporated on February 21, 1871 under the name “District of Columbia.” It was reorganized June 11, 1878 as a bankrupt organization and on June 5, 1933, as a de facto government; originally the ten miles square tract ceded by Maryland and Virginia and comprising Washington District of Columbia, plus the possessions, territories, forts, and arsenals. The United States was NOT founded as a democracy.
