Information ABOUT the Word provides the first step toward transformation but cannot by itself do it, you must WILL that God's Word can have the right to transform your life.
The Word here is the speech that God himself has stated in the Bible. His word is Life spoken forth to change but before that word can do its work it must first be planted in soil that is spiritual.
These are people who hear on the outskirts of the message, they THINK that God said something he really didn't, its really close but not the pure unadulterated original word that God spoke.
If we hear what we want to hear instead of what God's intent is, we rob ourselves of the blessing intended and Satan steals the rest.
Human nature has a bad habit of jumping to false conclusions because of a lack of concentration on the subject at hand, we think we know more than has been revealed and only accept half of what God said!
Satan is a spiritual rapist, he forces his REINTERPRETATION of what God said as he did to Eve in the Garden, its just the opposite of its intention. If we don't get the intent we don't hear God, God speaks what he means and means what he says!
Stony hearts are incapable of real growth because they are filled with so much of the world that little soil exists. The Word of God demands free space to spread out and grow.
In order to endure the Word mush take first place above all else, it requires DEEP ROOTS to grab hold of life so that when there arises persecution against what God says we can defend our stand. Without those roots we are easy targets for vain reasoning and foolish ideas.
This one speaks for itself, the clutter of worldly living drains our spiritual life of every nutrient rich element in our heart.
God made us to hold his Image within us, if that image is being tainted by fleshly desires and mental images that haven't occurred yet but are anti-Christ in nature; how do we think God's word could rule us that way?
This is the ideal growing condition for the word of God, no other soil is able to produce the fruit that God requires of our lives!
As any gardener knows the soil is the most important part of the crop of flowers, corn, or Wheat because it is within the soil that the seed is gestated and opened. How would a good seed grow in polluted soil?
