Mysteries of the Kingdom (Matthew 13:10-17) | back
10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? Why don't you just tell them what you mean?
11He 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. What are the mysteries? (The Key of David, know who the Kenites are, know that the Anti-Christ comes first before the real Christ). For some God unlocks the mysteries of the Kingdom, and some are blinded for their own protection. Why? Because even if they knew the truth they would not use it for good, or pass it on to others. And many of them would not be able to stand against Anti-Christ. They have enough problems standing on their own.
12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. If you search out a truth, He will give it to you. You also need to share it with others if you have it, otherwise you may lose it!
13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. (Isaiah 6:8-10). They will not see, hear, or understand.
14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: If you won't even crack the surface, the seed will not take. You will never understand God's Word if you do not show interest or search for the truth. Settling for traditions of men and fly by night teachings will not cut it. God will keep the truth from those who will just grab at anything so they feel spiritually safe.
15For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. Waxed over! Their eyes are closed because they did not care. Just as many do not care today. They have time for everything the world has to offer, but little time to study and search for truth in God's Word.
16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Many prophets and Godly men have longed to see what they have seen, and to hear what they have heard. But, they still did not get it!
