    The creator of the heavens and the earth should have no problem in conveying to his creation the exact nature of his being with no ambiguity....so, why does the Bible not present us with a clear picture.

    The answer for being confused lies here Rose:

    Matthew 13:10 The disciples came to him and asked, 'Why do you speak to the people in parables?'

    11 He replied, 'Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them ("them" meaning those who did not dig into understanding clearly His symbolic meaning of the parables and His speeches). 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them (meaning those who have the will will understood clearly His symbolic speeches and parables will obtained even more knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven and even more knowledge will then be revealed to him. However, if one did not understand or mis-interpret the meaning of His symbolic speeches will only be more confused and will lead him into rejecting even of whatever truth or inspiration that he have already have or discovered). 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:

    'Though seeing, they do not see;
    though hearing, they do not hear or understand.(meaning though they could see and hear what Jesus was speaking symbolically, they do not dig deeply into clearly understanding what Jesus actually meant).

    14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah (the "them" were those who did not bother to dig into understanding what the actual meanings of His symbolic speeches and parables):

    '‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
    Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
    and turn, and I would heal them.’[a] (The whole passage here means that those who did not bother to really understand the symbolic meaning of His speeches and parables will never understand or perceive what were the intended meanings because they have already fixated on their wrong belief as truth and refusing to see and hear other perceptives. Otherwise, they would have understood the real truth and meaning of His speeches and parables and would then turn away from their false belief and perception and Jesus would then accept their repentence and lead them into the truth and salvation).

    16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear (meaning for those who managed to make those to see and hear the actual meaning of what Jesus symbolic meanings meant in His speeches and parables will be blessed as more knowledge will be given). 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it [COLOR="red"](meaning that even many prophets and righteous people have tried to understand and learn but still did not know the actual meaning of what He actually meant in His symbolic speeches and parables because they did not really dig in to understand the actual meanings).


    The parable of the sower is related to the above passages:18 'Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart (meaning that when one hears the Lord's symbolic speeches but did not really dig into to understand the actual meanings, evilness in man's heart will corrupt and reject whatever truth and inspiration that was already revealed to him). This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.(meaning if one understood His symbolic speeches and parables in clarity of its actual meaning will be happy but since his faith and understanding are not strong enough, the fears of troubles and persecutions of being a faithful knowledgeable Christian makes him give up his faith). 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful (meaning one managed to really understood the actual meanings of His symbolic speeches and parables but the cares and worries of giving up the earthly life and wealth that one has acquired block one from obeying what one has learned of the truth to become more righteous and to lead more people to accept the truth). 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.'[/COLOR](meaning those who are good who understood clearly what the intended meanings of His symbolic speeches and parables will lead others to obey what was taught of the truth and thus leading others to be more righteous and knowledgeable. How many one leads others to salvation depends on how much one's faith and understandings of what was actually taught and revealed to him in His symbolic speeches and parables).

    Many Blessings.

    Ask and You shall receive,
    Seek and You shall find,
    Knock and the door will be open unto You.
