Rediscovering the Kingdom, Rediscovering the King
What is the Kingdom?
Well that answer is hidden in plain sight with clues of its existence everywhere we look, but even more, everywhere we SEE.
Let me start by mentioning that, if there is a Kingdom, then we must expect there to be a King. What I found even more satisfying to my craving for the unknown, lies in the Kingdoms ability to represent numerous aspects of a whole. To rediscover the kingdom you will inevitably come to face the rediscovering of a king as well, who has dominion of this Kingdom. The Kingdom can be said to exhibit elements of worldly and other worldly influence and power. It is not a Kingdom of mere happinstance, but a Kingdom of great wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; with its rulership and ever-expanding territory.
It is not a sentence I can say, but a fuller expression of the bigger picture. It is the pearl of great price!

A Paradise in a Parable
The Kingdom is like a fairy tale, its like an invisible world based on principles and laws; it’s like a reality that you experience, a life you want to live, a paradise you need to know, and the archetype of a heaven on earth, to be brief…an archetype that can be duplicated in the earth, and lived out (or experienced, felt, real…).
All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them,
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: “I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 13:34-35
In the Bible, the Kingdom is described as
The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares – Matthew 13:24
The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;
but while the man slept, his enemy came and sowed tares, among the wheat and went his way.
But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.
So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?
How then does it have tares?’
He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this. ‘ The servants said to him, ‘ Do you want us to go and gather them up?’
But he said, ‘No lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. ‘Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”””
What is Jesus saying? Well in the scriptures He explains his parable to be
Matthew 13:37 – He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.
“The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. “The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.“
“Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be a the end of this age.
Jesus is making a distinction between two types of people at the end of a time cycle, an age cycle. He is describing a seed, then 2 seeds, a harvest of the seeds, then also the appearance of wheat, yet it is a different because it is the tare seed mimicking the original seed planted in the garden.
Remember in Genesis, the Garden of Eden was called the Garden of God. While the significance to what is mentioned in Genesis is too lengthy to reach into in this article, I will mention it for the sake of perspective, and placing a puzzle piece on the table, and allowing you to figure out where it fits.
Jesus goes on to say this seed planted, was sown by an enemy, and he is called the devil. The distinction becomes clear. To seal the deal, He plainly states that good seeds belong to this kingdom, and the other seed belongs to an evil one. Jesus continues his parabolic explanation of the two seeds by declaring the counterfeit seed will be uprooted together and burned by fire, and the end of a time cycle will be its onsought (arrival).
TARES – Understanding What’s in a Word
- Strongs Concordance provides us with G2216
- with the word being Zizanion.
- Etymology-is uncertain origin
- 1. a kind of darnel, resembling wheat except the grains are black.
- uncertain origin; false origin
Jesus has declared this seed of the tares to be of false origin, and even provides us the certainty of where it originated. The tare is not said to be of Christ’s Kingdom, and he is using parabolic language to describe this concept, as is spoken of in the gospels. If we were to connect this wheat and tare to the bloodline of a different people, and even that which has been interpreted throughout miles and miles of history discussed through anthromorphic stories and records, we could conclude a more literal understanding of the wheat and tare parable.
For many reasons I would say I believe this bloodline to be a very literal one as well as supernatural one, with its tracings back to the beginning of the world. A bloodline with an alternative kingdom to the original kingdom, with its blueprint, original information, and its archetypal display, emanation, and manifestation. While Jesus attempts to lead people to the truth he masks it in seemingly elementary stories, with great mystery at times, and “deep calling unto deep” type of blows to the cognition of man.
Ultimately, he uses these hidden understandings to teach us to seek, and to teach us when we do, we discover truth beyond the elementary stories. We find a kingdom of principals and principalities. We uncover on the journey of being discipled into, or initiated into, a well of exoteric and esoteric manifiestations of the whole….or great truths Jesus wanted people to know so they could be set free….Free to discover the kingdom , the freedom to have the kingdom within, and the freedom to learn of that kingdom and unlock its everlasting doors and portals.
Beware the Tare impersonating the real Wheat. But understand the imposters will be exposed.
The wheat will be harvested, the tares will be destroyed.
The Parable of the Leaven
Matthew 13:33 – Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
Leaven is an ingredient that spreads even more when you put the heat/fire to it. The kingdom is like leaven that was buried (hidden, secret) and when it was buried it spread. It spread like a seed planted that roots (growing under and above ground) a loaf of bread that expands under heat, a secret kept, a missing link buried inside of you, something kept hidden until the word gets out enough and covers the earth.
When the Kingdom is understood, it spreads, it grows, it expands its territory.
Until the gospel covers the earth…
The Kingdom of heaven is within you
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
Another parable He put forth to them saying: “The kingdom of heaven in like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, which indeed is the least of all the seed, but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest on its branches.
As we venture into unveiling the King of the Universe, known across the planet as God, I will work to lay a foundation, and not of religion but of evidence and knowledge to differentiate between ideas of the referred to mythological God, and what I am trying to establish as the image, likeness, essence, and character of the One True King of the Universe. In the end, as we have understood in the establishment of earthly kingdoms, there can only be one king on a throne.
