IT IS GIVEN TO US TO KNOW THE MYSTERIES OF OUR GOD
It is the will of our God for His faithful children to know and have access to the secrets of His kingdom (His rule and way of doing things).
Mark 4:11 (KJV) And He said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables.
Peering into mysteries of life without the guidance and protection of our God’s Word and Holy Spirit is dangerous. Why? The treasures and of darkness are also shrouded in mystery. Those treasures and hidden riches of darkness are safely revealed to those who reverentially respect and honor His character, Word, and ways.
Isaiah 45:3 (NKJV) I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.
To Whom are These Secrets and Treasures Safely Unlocked?
Our God reveals these hidden truths and treasures to His people in the safety of His Word and care of Holy Spirit and heavenly host. This safety and care is only available to those who respect and honor our God’s character, Word and Holy Spirit with obedience.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
To Whom is Access to these Truths Given?
Psalm 25:14 (KJV) The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant.
The intimate counsel of the our Lord is available to those who reverentially respect and honor God. They receive the protection and provision found in His alliance, friendship, divine pledges, and promises. He unlocks the knowledge and understanding of secret treasures of darkness, and the wisdom to use them.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Psalm 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Safe access to the knowledge and wisdom of the ages begins with reverential respect and honor for Him, His character, Word, and ways. Jesus identifies the fruit or evidence of those who have reverential respect and honor for our God:
John 14:21 (NLT) Those who accept My commandments and obey them are the ones who love Me. And because they love Me, My Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal Myself to each of them.
The Access Keys of the Knowledge of our God’s Character, Heart and Mind
We must recognize the importance of knowing our God’s character, Word and Holy Spirit (ways), according to the Scriptures. Do not allow the Word of our God to be an historical story. Gathering knowledge for knowledge’s sake opens the door to the spirit of pride (1 Corinthians 8:1).
We must not study the Scripture to understand our situations; rather, we should study to know the character, heart, and mind of Your God in our situations. The use of our God’s Word without His Holy Spirit (character and ways) will lead to legalism (2 Corinthians 3:4-6).
We are led into the understanding of our God’s law by His Holy Spirit, and that through obedience. Our God’s law is rooted in love. The life and power of the Word of our God and His Holy Spirit are revealed in our lives when we apply His Truth and Ways to our daily living. Just as oil to a car is likened to the blood in the human body, our God’s Word and Holy Spirit are the blood of Christian life.
Our God has given us everything we need (through His promises/His Word and Holy Spirit authority and power) to escape the debauchery (every sin-affected thing) in the world. Through His Word and Holy Spirit, He has given us access to His abilities, gifts, and weaponry. We should never forget their importance in our lives. Without our God’s Word and Holy Spirit we are not whole and will not function properly.
Understand the principles surrounding the revelation of spiritual mysteries.
We should never seek to know spiritual mysteries for the sake of knowing, or for gaining wisdom and power for our own purposes. Revelation without our God’s understanding and instruction opens the door for deception. The guidance and protection of the Light of our God’s Word and Holy Spirit exposes and consumes death and darkness (which is also held in mysteries), as we walk with Him into the mysteries of His Love, Light and Life.
The Holy Spirit knows if and when we are ready for deeper truths. He knows our spiritual and mental strengths and lesser strengths. He knows every spot and blemish, every door that needs to be opened or closed, along with God’s timing for both.
Remember watchmen all over the world, it is given to us to know the mystery of the kingdom of our God. Let us align our thinking, speaking, and acting with His Standard, Jesus The Christ, so that His revelation knowledge and Truth unfold before us. We are then well-equipped to join Him in enforcing the completed work of Jesus, His Christ in the earth and in the lives of His people. Understanding the mysteries of the kingdom of our God positions us to join Jesus The Christ (our God’s Chosen Anointed One) in His mission.
We are seated in our Christ and are anointed with our God’s Holy Spirit and power. In our Christ, we go about doing good and healing all who are under the power of the devil, because our God is with us (Acts 10:38). In our Christ, we are anointed with His Truth (the Sword of the Holy Spirit) to separate His people from the deception of satan and his minions. In our Christ, we are anointed with His Holy Spirit and power to proclaim, decree, and declare His Good News of salvation, deliverance, healing, restoration…!
In our Christ, we are anointed with His authority and power to deliver those held in bondage to satan’s tricks and schemes. In our Christ, we are anointed to bring His Truth and revelation knowledge to the ignorant, light to heal all blindness, wisdom and power to work miracles, and faith to receive the impossible. We are in Christ and anointed with the authority and power to show forth the favor, the magnificent grace of our God (Luke 4:18-19).
Watchmen all over the world, let us align with our God, receive His mysteries and take the systems of this world, for Him and His Christ!
