Alive To The Mysteries Of The Kingdom

        Why did the Apostle Paul make such a bold statement in our opening verse? He says count yourself dead to sin, but alive to God. This is because in the mind of justice, when Jesus died, you died in Him. But something happened afterwards: God raised Jesus from the dead, and you were raised together with Him.
        That was what happened when you were born again; you were awakened to God; you came alive in the spirit. Now you can understand the realities of God’s Kingdom; you can know the things of God, because you’re alive to Him. The one who isn’t born again isn’t alive to God; he’s dead spiritually. He isn’t awakened to the realities of life in God’s realm. But it’s not so with you. The Lord Jesus said it’s given to you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God (Luke 8:10). So, it’s your heritage to understand the things of God, because you’re born again, and you have the life of God in you. Hallelujah!
        There isn’t any spiritual reality you can’t understand. Never say, “You know, I really don’t understand the things of God”; rather, you ought to say, “I’m alive to God; therefore, I
have an understanding heart; I understand the things of God.” Say this repeatedly until it takes a hold of your being.
        You don’t have to walk in darkness or ignorance concerning the Kingdom-life, your inheritance, rights, benefits and privileges in Christ Jesus. The Bible says, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” (1 Corinthians 2:12). What an awesome blessing: the Holy Spirit is in you to teach you all things and unveil the mysteries of life to you.

Dear Father, thank you for
granting me the spirit of wisdom
and revelation in the knowledge
of you; the eyes of my
understanding are enlightened to
the realities and truths of your
glorious Kingdom. And now, I
know the hope of your calling
and the riches of the glory of your
inheritance for me in Christ, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
