Given To Know The Mystery
And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so that
Would anyone who read the Christian Bible be able to understand it? From the above verse it would appear that the Scriptures actually said that unless you are a disciple or follower (the ‘you’ referenced in the above quoted verse) of JESUS CHRIST you won't be able to understand the Christian Bible. Is this true? Is this what the Christian Bible irrevocably proclaimed that only the disciples of JESUS would be able to understand the message of the Christian Holy Scriptures?
Well, no and yes.
Simple And Straight Forward Records
For example take this simple passage:
Other verses which might seem confusing:
Zechariah 6 verse 8 to 9
Isaiah 42:19 – 20
The Three Main Categories [maincat]
In the Beginning. GOD created the heavens and the earth
The Disciples Of The Christmas Religion (hereafter referred to as ‘they’) And Their Twisting Of The Scriptures.
The Christian Scriptures recorded, 'The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil’
And they say, ‘It is sex, dirty, filthy, defiling, sinful sex’.
JESUS CHRIST said,
“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:17 – 19
And the Apostle Paul wrote, ‘Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but keeping the commandments of God is what matters.’
JESUS CHRIST after HIS resurrection met with HIS eleven remaining Apostles and spoke to them saying:
“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Prophecies however may be slightly confusing as many of them are in parables and some having more than one fulfillments (with one or a more as a Type and one the Actual), so you need both a deeper and broader understanding of the whole Christian Biblical framework, the contextual focus of each of the passages, including the keys to the symbolic language used to illustrate and convey many of these prophetic messages.
So from the above you should be able to clearly see that except for Biblical prophecies and the main message of the Gospel, ‘The Mystery of Kingdom of GOD,’ the rest of the Scripture of Truth should not be at all difficult to understand. The reasons these sometimes seem to be confusing is because of the following:
Knowledge is empowerment (Genesis 3:17). I have given you the knowledge empowerment of the Truth, how you will proceed is up to you, but know for a certainty that GOD will bring all creature personages into judgment at the time HE had appointed to bring all into Judgment (Hebrew 9:27; Ecclesiastes 11:9; 2 Peter 3:7; Jude 1:6; Revelation 20:11 – 13).
As I have said before, nobody gets away with anything (Revelation 22:10 – 12, 14, 15; Matthew 12:41 – 42).
GOD is righteous, just and infinitely wise, HE will justly deal with every wicked deed and every infringing word and every act of deception and abuse of power committed by every man and woman who have ever lived since the Garden of Eden (Revelation 20:13; Luke 12:48; Matthew 12:36). There will be great weeping and gnashing of teeth (Luke 13:24 – 28) on that great day of GOD’s judgment (Revelation 21:7 – 8) when GOD will resurrect every human being made in the image and likeness of GOD who had ever lived for their just punishment (Revelation 22:11; 15).
Prophecies And Mystery Of The Kingdom Of GOD.
Prophecies are about events that will happen in a time future to the time they were revealed. A telling (i.e. disclosure) of an event before it happen, to foretell an event before it occurs. That is the concept of the word.
With Bible prophecies, most of the time until the event happens or comes to pass, there is a measure of difficulty to envisage it clearly in terms of both the time and the unfolding (occurring).
But not just only deliberately refusing to understand simple concepts such as ‘summary’, ‘based on and basis’, ‘foundation principles’ and ‘base line’, what these are; all the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of the human social order ever since, also refused to understand most of the very simple concepts communicated by the Christian Holy Scriptures, concepts such as: language and communication; omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresence; covenants and their requirement; governing principles and governing requirements (enforcement authority, statutes and laws, legitimate and legal, unlawful and illegal); fairness, justice and injustice; crime, sin and transgression; repentance and forgiveness, good and evil, right and wrong; honor and respect, appropriate and inappropriate conduct and behavior; trust and relationship; motivations and intentions; love and lust; valid and invalid; confirmation, verification and nullification; consistency and contradiction; maturity and chronological age; social order, peace and harmony; conducive, disruptive and destructive; predation and parasitism; responsibility and abuse; health and diseased; etc. and etc.
