WE WERE DISCUSSING WITH YOU LAST WEEK, the subject from Mystery to Revelation, and we mentioned that there are several mysteries of God. This week we are talking about the mysteries of the Kingdom.
The mysteries of God are for your understanding. They are not for the entire world. Nor was it intended that the world would understand them at this time. That is one of the reasons why we have these mysterious passages which exist in the book of Matthew and in the book of Luke and so forth. When Jesus is speaking in the book of Matthew, chapter 13, verse 11, He says:–‘It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, unto them is it not given.’ Then in Luke 8, we find that the mysteries are to be spoken in parables so that for some:–‘In seeing, they may not see, and in hearing, they may not hear.’
In fact it is very strongly spoken in Matthew that you would understand —but –they would not unless they suddenly professed conversion and joined you, and apparently this was not the design of the MOST HIGH. You see God recognized with the Omniscience of His intelligent wisdom, all that relates to earth, and all the strategy of the enemy. He knows the heart and soul and condition of every individual and knows that one of the Master strategies of Lucifer as he seeks to hold the earth and overthrow God’s kingdom is to profess that –they—are with you, and then they join you, and having joined you they seek to destroy from within, having infiltrated and penetrated. Then as one studies the history of God’s kingdom as it rises against the powers of evil which seeks to destroy it, you notice that the most successful attacks against God’s kingdom have come from infiltration.
