My Doctrine

 

My doctrine will drop… As…the Rain.

My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

  ~ Deuteronomy 32:2 ~

According to the scripture and the witness of the spirit of Truth, for us, the rain (water) is the parables that raise up and reveals the Son of God within us.

For in this verse 2 of Deuteronomy, the Spirit is saying My Doctrine and My Speech are interconnected.

Rain (showers) for the grass, and dew (small rain) for the tender herb. 

So what is this doctrine that drops like rain? Wouldn’t it be God’s Speech or Spirit language of parables?

Ok, so you might say to us…well, I don’t need to hear and see (witness) parables any longer, for I have Jesus, for I have my church…etc.    Are you most certain?

If Jesus Christ is the same…yesterday, today and forever, then wouldn’t we still need the Doctrine (the parables)?

 

God Opens his Mouth In a Parable

Matthew chapter 13 (verses 33-35):
33. 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.
34. All these things spake Jesus unto the multitudes in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
35. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation (spirit/mindset) of the world.

 

Verse thirty-five (35) of Matthew listed above, is a direct quote from Psalms 78. When the Lords’ mouth is being referenced, then a parable is being spoken.

Psalms chapter 78: Maschil of Asaph(verses 1-4):

1.  Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

2.  I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

3.  Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

4.  We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

 

Summary of Psalms 78:

Doctrine is the parables spoken by the Spirit (in the spirit, man’s consciousness) called also as:

  1. The utterance of dark sayings
  2. The praises of the LORD
  3. The LORDs strength
  4. The LORDs wonderful works

 

I recall one night being wakened by my wife, as she was talking out loud but was asleep.  She was setting up, and her arms were motioning as if separating something. She kept repeating, “My People are Not Your People”.

Wouldn’t it be that the Doctrine of Christ when in operation, will cause a separation, a division of man’s thoughts and God’s thoughts, the teaching us the difference between?

I asked her the next morning if she recalled her dream, and she said yes, and described of seeing a valley, and groups of people were being divided, one group on the left hill and another group to the right hill as she was waving her arms and hands giving them directions.

Psalms’ provides a reference to a parable; as to “uttering dark sayings of old”.

Mark chapter 4 (verses 33,34):

33.  And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.

34.  But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded ‘all things’ to his disciples.

In the parable comes the word of truth to us.  Here in Mark, Jesus expounded (interpreted) the parable (“all things”) to the disciples, but not to the multitude.

 

Jesus teaches by parables; it is his doctrine

Jesus answered them, and said, “My doctrine is not mine, but his (God) that sent me”.

~ John 7:16 ~

Mark chapter 4 (verses 1-3):

1. And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.

2.  And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,

3.  Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow.

Who is taught God’s Doctrine?

Isaiah chapter 28 verses 9 – 13

9.  Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

10.  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

11.  For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

12.  To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

13.  But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Note: the doctrine, the parables is ‘the refreshing’, which may cause the weary to rest; that is if we believe in the parables; if we will hear them and come to an agreement with them. 

 

Ecclesiasticus chapter 24 ties in this short report of God’s Doctrine of Wisdom, and Understanding and Knowledge: 

1. Wisdom shall praise herself, and shall glory in the midst of her people.

2. In the congregation of the Most High shall she open her mouth, and triumph before his power.

3. I came out of the mouth of the Most High, and covered the earth as a cloud.

4. I dwelt in high places, and my throne is in a cloudy pillar.

5. I alone compassed the circuit of heaven, and walked in the bottom of the deep.

6. In the waves of the sea and in all the earth, and in every people and nation, I got a possession. (doctrine, parables, the wisdom of God is in every person). 

7. With all these I sought rest: and in whose inheritance shall I abide?

8. So the Creator of all things gave me a commandment, and he that made me caused my tabernacle to rest, and said, Let thy dwelling be in Jacob (the deceitful heart), and thine inheritance in Israel (the promised clean heart).

9. He created me from the beginning before the world, and I shall never fail.

10. In the holy tabernacle I served before him; and so was I established in Sion.

11. Likewise in the beloved city he gave me rest, and in Jerusalem was my power.

12. And I took root in an honourable people, even in the portion of the Lord’s inheritance.

13. I was exalted like a cedar in Libanus, and as a cypress tree upon the mountains of Hermon.

14. I was exalted like a palm tree in En-gaddi, and as a rose plant in Jericho, as a fair olive tree in a pleasant field, and grew up as a plane tree by the water.

15. I gave a sweet smell like cinnamon and aspalathus, and I yielded a pleasant odour like the best myrrh, as galbanum, and onyx, and sweet storax, and as the fume of frankincense in the tabernacle.

16. As the turpentine tree I stretched out my branches, and my branches are the branches of honor and grace.

17. As the vine brought I forth pleasant savor, and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches.

18. I am the mother of fair love, and fear, and knowledge, and holy hope: I, therefore, being eternal, am given to all my children which are named of him.

19. Come unto me, all ye that be desirous of me, and fill yourselves with my fruits.

20. For my memorial is sweeter than honey, and mine inheritance than the honeycomb.

21. They that eat me shall yet be hungry, and they that drink me shall yet be thirsty.

22. He that obeyeth me shall never be confounded, and they that work by me shall not do amiss.

23. All these things are the book of the covenant of the most high God, even the law which Moses commanded for an heritage unto the congregations of Jacob.

24. Faint not to be strong in the Lord; that he may confirm you, cleave unto him: for the Lord Almighty is God alone, and beside him there is no other Saviour.

25. He filleth all things with his wisdom, as Phison and as Tigris in the time of the new fruits.

26. He maketh the understanding to abound like Euphrates, and as Jordan in the time of the harvest.

27. He maketh the doctrine of knowledge appear as the light, and as Geon in the time of vintage.

28. The first man knew her not perfectly: no more shall the last find her out.

29. For her thoughts are more than the sea, and her counsels profounder than the great deep.

30. I also came out as a brook from a river, and as a conduit into a garden.

31. I said, I will water my best garden, and will water abundantly my garden bed: and, lo, my brook became a river, and my river became a sea.

32. I will yet make doctrine to shine as the morning and will send forth her light afar off.

33. I will yet pour out doctrine as prophecy, and leave it to all ages for ever.

34. Behold that I have not labored for myself only, but for all them that seek wisdom.

 

Say, Son of man,

I am your sign!
