THE MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM

 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Jesus’ use of parables—short stories to

illustrate moral principles or truths—

is well known (Mark 4:2). Most people

today think that He used these to make

His message easy to understand. But

here is a little known truth: He spoke in

parables so people wouldn’t understand!

Do you find this hard to believe? Notice

Jesus’ explanation.

After Jesus had likened the Kingdom to a

farmer sowing seed, His disciples—those

He was personally training—privately

asked Him what this parable of the sower

meant. Here is His answer: “To you it

has been given to know the mystery of

the kingdom of God; but to those who

are outside, all things come in parables”

(Mark 4:11, emphasis added throughout).

Jesus purposefully spoke in parables to

hide His message about the Kingdom.

Jesus told His disciples: “The knowledge

of the secrets of the Kingdom of God has

been given to you, but to the rest it comes by means of parables, so that they [thecrowds] may look but not see, and listen but not understand” (Luke 8:10, Good News Translation).

Only a few were being given the opportunity to understand “the mystery of the kingdom.” And the mystery continues today. The “secrets of the Kingdom of God” remain hidden.

Did you know that the Kingdom of God is NOT the Church, and the Church is NOT the Kingdom of God. If the Church and the Kingdom were truly synonymous then we could substitute “church” for “kingdom” in the scriptures without changing the meaning. Does it make sense if we do that in these verses? [the only change I have made is “church” for “kingdom”]: -In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, "Repent, for the church of heaven is at ...hand!" (Matthew 3:1-2 KJV) -From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, "Repent, for the church of heaven is at hand." (Matthew 4:17 KJV) -In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your church come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-10 KJV) -And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the church and the power and the glory forever. Amen. (Matthew 6:13 NKJV) -But the sons of the church will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 8:12 KJV) -Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the church prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (Matthew 25:34 KJV) Jesus answered, "My church is not of this world. If My church were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My church is not from here." (John 18:36 KJV) . . . strengthening the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, "We must through many tribulations enter the church of God." (Acts 14:22 KJV) Well, you get the picture. Doesn't make sense does it? That is because Jesus meant something different when He said “kingdom” than when He said “church”. We need to understand.

Instead of a clear explanation of Christ’s central message, Christianity offers a dizzying array of teachings and competing gospels. While everyone acknowledges that Jesus said, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” ideas about this Kingdom vary widely. The 38,000 plus denominations of Christianity in our modern world each have their own interpretation of Jesus’ words.

Understanding why we were born is

foundational to understanding the Kingdom of God.

The Bible reveals that God had a plan for mankind from the “foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8) before “time began” (2 Timothy 1:9). Unique among all the physical life that God had created upon the earth, man was made in God’s “own image” and according to His “likeness”

(Genesis 1:26-27).  

When Jesus came to earth, He continued doing His “Father’s business” (Luke 2:49)—carrying out the plan that the Father had established long ago. Jesus said that He had come in His “Father’s name” (John 5:43) to do “the will of Him who sent Me” (John 6:38).

Becoming part of the family of God—

being born as children “of God”—is

God’s ultimate purpose for you and for

every human being that has ever existed

and that will exist! (Ephesians 3:14-15; 2

Corinthians 6:17-18). God is in the business

of drawing people to Himself (John

6:44). He is “not willing that any should

perish but that all should come to repentance”

(2 Peter 3:9). Now that we understand

God’s purpose for humanity, let’s

focus on this Kingdom to which Jesus

referred.

  

  The Revealing of The Gospel of The Kingdom of God-

 

 In October 2013, my eyes were open to the Mysteries of the Kingdom of God. I had just arrived in Los Angeles, CA after a brief assingnment in Cleveland, Ohio. Upon returning from that Region, I questioned The Holy Spirit, "there has to be more than this". It was that "hunger and thrist "that triggered what happened to me next. It was clear that I was "hunger and thirsty"- and did not realize that, that was all that was needed to have my eyes spiritually open. It was my "hunger and thirst" that granted me enterance into the the things of the Kingdom of God.

 

It was then that it happened....... it was one scripture that illuminated my spiritual vision: Matthew 13:10-11- it was there my life was forever changed! My God!
I remember this excitment that hit my soul. An excitement that I had never felt before- it was as if I wanted to shout from the rooftop this new found revelation. It was then, the parable of "The Treasure and the Goodly Pearl" Matthew 13:44 was being fulfilled in my life.

It was the Gospel of The Kingdom of God that entered my life. It was this Gospel, that Jesus and the disciples preached is indeed "Good News" to mankind. It was the begining of my life, never being the same again.
It answers all of our questions as to why we were ever born and what is our function in the earth. Much of Religion today, has failed to proclaim the Gospel of The Kingdom of God, hidden in Him since the foundations of the world , to be revealed to those that are the hungry and thirsty. That which in Jesus's day, was not revealed to the crowds; but reserved for his disciples, the intimate ones. Those that sought after Him.

Religion, has blinded the eyes of millions that profess Christ in this hour; and although they speak about and use the term "Kingdom of God," have failed to discern it's Mysteries and it's revealings, of which indeed has to be revealed; and one's eyes have to be enlightened.
Upon revelation of, one's life is never the same. In fact they will sell everything, to include what they learned from religion, your worldly posessions and buy the feild that contains this great treasure.
