Speaking and Hearing

Mar 4:1  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.
Mar 4:2  And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
Mar 4:33  And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
Mar 4:34  But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
In public Jesus spoke in parables and those who could hear and understand were few. His disciples were taught the meanings of the parables when alone with Jesus. Knowing this, we as disciples should use parables in our teaching. We like to quote scriptures with the verse reference, but how many are able to hear and understand? In a group setting parables are used, but alone with hungry believers we should speak the powerful word of God.  Sometimes when witnessing in a group, one of satans mouth pieces will speak to distract and lead people away. We are to speak the word directly to these wolves among the sheep. The Word of God is spiritually understood. The unclean spirits will hear the powerful word and flee. We must learn to seek the spiritual meanings in our hearing and seeing. The power of God is in His powerful word.
