... and he said unto them, unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God
- Mark 4:11a
The kingdom of God has always been a mystery to people. They don`t just seem to understand the kingdom but thanks be to God. It is not a mystery to us who are believers. Our Lord Jesus said in the verse above that it has been given to us to know the mystery. Even though it was once a mystery to us but now we have access to know this mystery. Praise God ! To all of us who believe and fear the Lord it would be revealed .
Jesus said - Blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear. He said wise men had longed and hoped to know and see those things that we know but to them it was not given. He said but to us it is given. Praise God !
Recently, God woke me up from my sleep very early in the morning and gave me a wonderful message titled the mystery of the kingdom and I would like to share it with you. May God bless you as you read with delight. Amen
