The parable of the sower

Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. — Matthew 13:33

The “leaven” represents false doctrines, false teaching.

Mark 8:15  And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

The people most responsible for sowing the leaven of false doctrines among the Protestants are the Jesuits. Some of them actually become Protestant ministers!. The Kingdom of Heaven is being polluted by the leaven of the false doctrines of man and the Devil. That’s what Jesus meant!

One of the main false doctrines spread among Protestants today is that of pre-tribulation rapture. I just do not understand the motivation of people who preach pre-tribulation unless they are purposely doing it to give people FALSE HOPE! That’s a crime in my opinion, a SIN against God’s people!!! Who would want to do that? Only witches and Masons who are sowing the leaven of false doctrines, that’s who!

Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Gather His elect when? “Immediately after the tribulation of those days”

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:3

Christians have been persecuted and killed all through the ages since Stephen the first martyr! What difference is the great tribulation for them? Only the scope of it, the size of it. Could they have suffered any more than they already did? Would the stones that hit Stephen have hurt more if thrown during the great tribulation?

Bottom line: If pre-tribulation doctrine is true, those who believed in post-tribulation rapture have nothing nothing to lose. But if pre-tribulation rapture doctrine is false, those who have believed it will be shaken to the very foundation of their faith when they enter the tribulation and Jesus hasn’t come yet to take them away!!!! They will be totally unprepared in heart, spirit, and body for what is to come.

Interpretation of Matthew 13:33 — 3 Comments

  1. Great points! I’m an older born- againer and I don’t remember learning mt 13:33 as you so clearly teach it. isn’t great to learn more and more truth.

  2. “The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto FALSE DOCTRINE?” EVERY wind of doctrine?”

    Excuse me brother, that is NOT what Jesus said! You’re supposed to substitute the word “leaven” with false doctrine. In this case the leaven IS BAD! Jesus said, so very clearly in Mark 8:15!

    I stick with the Bible and what our Pastor David taught us. He didn’t clearly comment on this verse. I think Bill Schnoebelen’s explanation sounds pretty right on and Scriptural. The preponderance of the time the word leaven is used in the Bible, 18 out of 20 times, it is used in a bad and negative sense.
