Because the Lord: theunfetteredpreacher

Because the Lord:

Why do I love, trust, and wait on the Lord? He has proved to be my refuge and strength and an ever present help in times of trouble? (Psalms 46:1)

I know He has for me. Here are some reasons for loving, trusting and waiting on the Lord.

Because the Lord:

Has heard my voice, my prayers and desires. (Psalm 28:6; 116:1-2). I will call upon him as long as I live.

I will Bless and Praise the Lord. Because the Lord: has dealt bountifully with me. (Supplied my needs, protected me, delivered me from evil and set me on the Rock). Because I have set my love on Him. (Psalm 13:6; 91:14)

Just a few reasons why I love, trust and wait on the Lord.

The Mysteries of the Kingdom: theunfetteredpreacher

The Mysteries of the Kingdom:

Jesus spoke in Parables, so that those who had hearts that were hard to the Gospel, would in; “seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.” (Matthew 13:13)

Yet, those whose hearts were open would ‘Know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven’. (Matthew 13:11)

So what are these Mysteries?

The first is that we become children of God, like the Jews, by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sins. (Ephesians 3:6)

It is interesting to me that before I was saved there really was no such thing as sin. (If it felt good, do It, tastes good, eat It, and if you like it do it again.)

As long as it was legal, it was fine. If it was illegal, it was ok unless you were caught.

When the Lord opened my heart to recognize sin, I discovered Repentance. Repentance led me to Belief, which caused me to become Righteous. Which, in turn, led me to Confession and Salvation.

A journey that happened in the blink of an eye.

Knowing that mystery was a life changer, yet there was more to be Revealed.

Paul received this Revelation in a personal meeting with Jesus. (Ephesians 3:3) We may not have been blinded, (like Paul) when we met the Lord, but we received the same Revelation of the Love and Grace of Jesus Christ.

Paul continued, as we should, to explain the mystery to others, we are to be faithful stewards of the mysteries of the Kingdom, calling all to the Knowledge of Christ. (Ephesians 3:9-10; 1 Corinthians 4:1)

We should pray the Lord will open the door for us to effectively share this blessing. (Ephesians 6:19) That the lost would come to Christ.

This is only the beginning of the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven. I hope you join me, to explore more.

It is given unto you to know: theunfetteredpreacher

“It is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them, it is not given.”. (Matthew 13:11)

To Know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven. Is that not, what we who love Him, desire? It should be.

Jesus spoke in Parables, for those who had ears to hear, eyes to see, and hearts that would receive the Truths He Spoke. How much of the Truth, do we believe?

It is said, that Thomas Jefferson, had cut out the scriptures he liked, to make his personal Bible, and like him, we all have our own, individual Bible. The Scriptures we hold dear and true. The parts we cling to and walk in. Whether it really is what the Word said or meant.

This is why there are so many Denominations, Sects, and Divisions in the body of Christ. We choose what parts of the Word are for us today. Then discard the rest.

This is a dangerous game.

Matthew 13: 12.

“For 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.”

We have the knowledge of repentance and salvation, do not stop seeking there. Revelation Knowledge is available for all who seek it.
