  1. Is there a seed smaller than the mustard seed that when grown is bigger than the mustard tree that can span up to 20-25ft? The answer is no. So the mustard seed is the smallest seed on earth that when sown in the earth produces the largest herb that produces great branches that the birds can nest in.

    Christ didn’t make an absolute statement about the size of the mustard seed being the absolute smallest; but it came with qualifications of the smallest that:
    1. Has to be sown in the earth.
    2. Must become greater than all the herbs.
    3. Must shoot out straight branches.
    4. Birds must be able to nest in it.

    “It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.”
    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:31-32‬ ‭

    Orchid seeds are not sown in the earth but in water and then planted in the earth. Orchid seed is not sown in earth.

    Wolffia or wormwood grows on top of water and is not sown in the earth or dry land.

    Poppy seeds are sown in the earth but when grown are not greater than all herbs, do not have great branches, and cannot hold birds or nests. This likewise goes for every other seed that is smaller than the mustard seed that is sown in the earth.

    So this passage is literal, and scientific, whatever that means, and is in a parable, with a physical and spiritual context, and is not exaggerated hyperbole.

    Christ’s words are true…literally! Read His word with reverence humility and you will have eyes to see and ears to hear. Read it with the high minded experts and you will not see…that’s what parables are for.

  2. Brother Capps shares the Word with such clarity and scripturally centered that understanding his discourse is easy. The Word spoken is not a burden. Not a struggle to speak. The Word has been spoken that we need not struggle to find the correct word to speak over our lives! Brother Capps teachings have been with me since 1980. I spoke spoke myself into destruction and now I know to speak myself out of destruction with what The Most High spoke.
