The Mystery of the Kingdom

... 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

12 Similitudes of the kingdom

In the Gospels, Our Lord Jesus likened the kingdom to many things. He did that in order to reach out to the people. I would like you to check up the references attached to each similitude. May God give you understanding in Jesus name. Amen.

Matt.13:31 - Like a grain of mustard seed
Matt.13:33 - Like leaven
Matt.13:44 - Like a treasure hid in a field
Matt.13:45 - Like a merchant man seeking pearls
Matt.13:47 - Like a net that...gathered every kind of fish
Matt.18:23 - Like a certain king taking account of his servants
Matt.20:1 - Like a householder who hired more labourers
Matt.21:28 - Like two sons who were sent to go to work
Matt.22:1 - Like a certain king which made a marriage for his son
Matt.25:1 - Like ten virgins
Matt.25:14 - Like a travelling man who gave talents
Mark 4:14 - Like a sower

These 12 similitudes describes the kingdom of God. It describes God, our kingdom purpose, believers, our spiritual gifts, God`s end time plan etc.
The revelation is really exciting. Meditate upon it and get the juice out of them. May God give you a wonderful drink and meal out of it. Amen

For added understanding...our pastor has explained to us that the Kingdom of God is not only like the first thing mentioned in each of those parables, but like the whole parable. It makes a bit more sense that way. Just my two cents...
