    Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
    Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
    Mat 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
    Mat 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
    SIMPLE HUH???????

  2. Very simply yeshua, and who knows what his given name was, was a political dissident. Those who would casually read/hear his messages would think it was simply some mystical ramblings. But if you read his words in context of his being a political/social dissident, you easily understand the meaning. Apply what he said to today’s situation in this nation and most of the world…it is just as true today as it was in his time. The struggle for power is timeless. It transcends all classes and eras. The imposition of servitude through coin, the understanding that the rich get richer and take from the poor, as your verse points out Koyote, the fraud committed on the poor by the organized church and government…it has never ceased. His salvation is in his words, how to throw off the masters, how to set your mind free so you may set your body free. The kingdom of heaven is all about us. If we do not change the here and now, we as a people, will continue to endure an everlasting hell. He saw beyond the curtain, we are all children and ignorant. We’ve participated in our own enslavement. We’ve forgotten that the world that we’ve created is an illusion. We don’t have to live this way. We don’t have to murder, starve, suffer. We chose this path. We can choose another. Does that mean we can achieve that without opposition? Of course not..power is all consuming. We must destroy those in power or, if their tool of control is real, take the tool from them. Most often the tool is not real, most often, we follow rules without question. To open your eyes simply question why…every moment, question why.

    1. But what if the “tool” of those in power is a spiritual one? You know, Satan? That is why we need Christ. Physical yes, but especially spiritual.

      1. No, I know no Satan. I know only evil men and men unwilling to stop evil men. I would define evil as that which is done with intent, on another with the sole purpose of control. I’ve never met Satan, never met a god. I’ve met many evil men. I’ve been an evil man. I’ve also seen that heaven is not above. It is here. People are so busy looking externally for salvation that they cannot see it is inside them. If you remove the hate, the fear from yourself, “the light of heaven” will shine through you. You will be a beacon rather than a locked door, holding back the light. Simply put, if we all decided to put away fear, which is the root of evil, we would become a source of good. When we hold onto fear, we do evil to protect ourselves from imagined harm. Even death, is not to be feared. When we fear nothing, we are free and others will see the way. That is who yeshua was, a man, without fear.

  3. No need to even watch the video to answer this one.

    Because the Hebrews were supposed to get it, and did.

    The jews, on the other hand, were clueless… as intended.
