By no means am I the expert. I welcome any feedback and discussion. The topic of the kingdom of God is a topic I am growing to love. It was a central topic to Jesus, so I suspect it is worth exploring.
Matthew 13:11 (NIV)
He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them."Mark 4:11 (NIV)
He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables"Luke 8:10 (NIV)
He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.’"
Doesn't this just make you want to know what these secrets are? When we know someone has been telling a secret to others, we naturally want in on it.
I pray for wisdom. I suspect if we seek God for clarity He will give us enough answers as needed.
