Mystery of Heaven

He 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. (Matthew 13:11 KJV)

Strange to me that non-believers look upon Christians as being exclusive, keeping people out. Yet Christ holds open invitations to all, to whosoever will come to Him.

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32 KJV)

For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother. (Mark 3:35 KJV)

Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: (Luke 12:8 KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV)

Heaven is the promise to those following God’s Messiah. We look forward to it and there is quite a bit of information regarding heaven in the Bible. Too much to look into within the limits of this short blog. Besides, why should I be concerned about heaven? I know I’m going to be there because Jesus, God’s Messiah, His son, is my savior who prepared a place for me. God knows how to give good gifts.

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. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10 KJV)

I firmly believe there are many things yet to be revealed. We know that both Daniel and John were requested to seal up and not reveal things they witnessed. We know that God’s thoughts are so far different from ours that we have yet to understand. We also have the faith that there is much more yet to come.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? (Matthew 7:11 KJV)

Still, Matthew’s words ring so very true today, as they did then.

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: (Matthew 7:28 KJV)

Why the others are not understanding is explained a few verses later.

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And 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: For 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. (Matthew 13:13-15 KJV)

Thank you for taking time to read and comment on the blog. Comments should take into consideration this verse: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)
