Matthew 13:11 WEB
He answered them, “To you it is given to know
the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven,
but it is not given to them.
Promise #146: I will show you the mysteries of My kingdom.
In today's passage of Scripture, Jesus tells His disciples that it was His Father's plan for them to know the mysteries of the kingdom. Jesus had just finished telling the crowds the parable of the sower and the seed and then He took the time to explain to His beloved friends the meaning of this story.
Jesus did this because it wasn't His intention to keep His disciples in the dark. His desire (and His Father's desire) is always to deepen our level of revelation of the vastness of the kingdom in which we are called to live in. He doesn't want us to be left in the dark because we are called to be children of light!
It gives our Father great pleasure to give us His kingdom. (Luke 12:32) In John 5:19-20, Jesus made this statement... 19 Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. (NIV)
Our God and Father loves to show us what He is up to by the Spirit which He has given us. May each one of us see an increase of revelation into the mysteries of the wonderful kingdom of God in the coming days and with childlike awe and wonder be totally blown away by our Dad's goodness.
May God bless you all!
