The Mysteries of the Kingdom are a fascinating part of the Scriptures. Because the Word of GOD stands forever, we can see the Word of the Kingdom as a revelation in our inward parts that will enable us to abide in the Kingdom – in revealed realities obtained and held by the faith of YESHUA [see Heb 12:2a] authored and perfected into us – until YESHUA comes to manifest the Kingdom on the earth.
The Word of the Kingdom can also be the spontaneous prophetic Word [in the “Word of Knowledge” and the “Word of Wisdom” and the “Discerning of Spirits”] giving us prophetic insights [by Word and through Vision and Dreams] into realities of the Kingdom opened to us in the Spirit of GOD.
Isaiah 28:9 [NASB] declares: < 9 “To whom would He teach knowledge [knowledge: speaks of the abiding], and to whom would He interpret the message [message: speaks of the spontaneous]? Those just weaned from milk? Those just taken from the breast? >
There is coming a time when we will actually be enabled and empowered by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS to experience spontaneous manifestations of Kingdom Power and Authority and Dominion in our peculiar situations and circumstances.
Also there will be a growing sense of the abiding fashioned into the fabric of our being in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA, the faith and love of YESHUA and, in the Character and Nature and Personality of YESHUA.
As Hosea [6:3, KJV] declares there is coming an outpouring of the SPIRIT of GOD that will be a manifestation of both the early and the latter rains: < 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up [in the power of the Risen CHRIST that works within us to give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think (as proclaimed in Eph 3:20)], and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. >
Joel [2:23-24, ASV] declares the same explosion of the HOLY SPIRIT’s work: < 23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in JEHOVAH your God; for He giveth you the former rain in just measure, and He causeth to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat [see Matthew 13:30c, 24-30, NKJV], and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil [see also Revelation 6:6]. >
Pointedly, Revelation 6:6c [NKJV] declares that as the Seals are broken by YESHUA, the King’s decree to His angels [see Rev 1:16a, 20, NKJV] will be: < “and do not harm the oil and the wine” >.
The Mysteries of the Kingdom are the fruit of the Tree of Life that grows out of the Seed of CHRIST implanted in us. Out of the implanted Seed of CHRIST, GOD will by the HOLY SPIRIT manifest the revealed realities of the Kingdom in us and amongst us. These revealed Kingdom realities will stand in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets opened into our being as we progressively develop into Epistles of CHRIST [see Ex 31:18; 32:16; 2 Cor 3:3, NKJV]. The fabric of this communication of Kingdom realities into our inward parts will be in the actual fabric of the Spirit and Life of YESHUA [see Phil 4:13, 19, KJV].
The flowing River of GOD, flowing the Water of Life [see Rev 22:1; Rev 1:15c; Eze 1:24], is opened in us by the HOLY SPIRIT in wells of living water [see John 4:13-14]. The Waters of Life will flow from our innermost being [KJV: ‘belly’] as rivers of living water [see John 7:37-38].
The flowing Water of Life, flowing into us through wells of living Water, will, by the SPIRIT, water the Seed of CHRIST; and, the watered Seed of CHRIST will in turn manifest Kingdom realities and capacities of function in us [see Col 1:26-28] and amongst us – progressively – according to the Voice of GOD [see Eze 1:24] and His Messiah [see Rev 1:15c], in MASHIAH YESHUA’s power “mightily working within us and amongst us” as testified to by the Apostle Paul [in Col 1:29c, NASB].
These revealed realities [“Spiritualities”] will be of the Spirit and Life of JESUS CHRIST [see John 6:63; Heb 1:3b; Luke 21:33; Rev 1:15c]. And, these revealed Kingdom realities will be established in the faith of YESHUA, authored and finished into us in the substance and witness of His fullness. What is manifested in the substance and witness of YESHUA is the product of the Righteousness of YHWH – based on our response to Him and His Word, through faith [see Rom 10:10; 3:21-23, KJV].
The revelation of Kingdom realities will unfold to our inward parts based on our response [in obedient, GOD fearing, faith] to the Word of the Kingdom through prayer, worship and by lifestyle changes, reflecting our willingness to become – in the image and fullness of MASHIAH YESHUA – ministers of the New Covenant [see 2 Cor 3:3-6, NKJV], ministers of CHRIST, faithful stewards of the Mysteries of GOD [see 1 Cor 4:1-2].
As Hosea declares: “in the third day he will raise us up [in the power of the Risen CHRIST that works within us to give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think (as proclaimed in Eph 3:20)], and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD”.
Revelation 22:1-2 gives prophetic expression to the Kingdom that unfolds, in fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets, from the Tree of Life established on either side of the River of GOD [see Ps 1:1-3]: < 1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. >
The Tree of Life grows out of the Seed of CHRIST. The Seed of CHRIST is the Seed of the Word of GOD. Contained in the Seed of CHRIST is the seed-form of every Word by which YHWH has predestined the development and establishment of the realities of His Kingdom [see Isaiah 28:9; John 1:16-18, NASB+NKJV; Rom 8:1-2, NKJV].
Words form verses that describe operating realities in which the Kingdom is opened to us. There are verses in the written Word of GOD that when opened into us in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA, form the fabrics of reality that will manifest and grow and develop the Kingdom Mysteries of YHWH to our inward parts; so that we as Ministers of CHRIST will be stewards of the Mysteries of GOD, through the Testimony of YESHUA which, manifests the Spirit of MASHIAH as the Spirit of Prophecy [see Rev 10:7; Col 2:2-3, NKJV].
We are in this sense talking of the Kingdom that is coming forth in the Testimony of JESUS that unfolds in and from the Seed of CHRIST. Everything in Revelation 21 and 22 are actual expressions – the actual end products – of the Testimony of YESHUA that become the basis of a new Beginning, when the SON brings all things in subjection to GOD the FATHER.
1 Corinthians 15:22-28 [NKJV] declares: < 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits [see James 1:17-18; Col 1:17-18; Heb 12:22-23], afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all. >
This unfolding of the Kingdom – in the Testimony of JESUS that grows out of the Seed of CHRIST – flows in the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of GOD [see Rev 3:14b, NASB]. This is the Witness of living Waters that flow the River of Life [see Rev 22:1].
Simplistically, the Mysteries of the Kingdom unfold through: (i) revealed realities carried in singular words; (ii) revealed realities that unfold through verses and passages of Scripture; (iii) revealed realities that unfold through the Promises of Scripture; (iv) revealed realities that unfold through the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets; (v) revealed realities that unfold through Blood Covenant intimacy structured into us and amongst us.
Given that YESHUA is the WORD of GOD; all realities of the Kingdom, opened to redeemed mankind, necessarily manifests in and through the fabrics of the Spirit and Life of YESHUA, in “fabrics of reality” woven by the HOLY SPIRIT to fulfill the kind intentions of the FATHER’s will predestined in a Kingdom framework – for fulfillment.
What comes to life from the Seed of CHRIST develops and grows in a ‘Kingdom of GOD’ framework – engineered in the Testimony of JESUS, which is the Spirit of Prophecy [see Rev 19:10c]. It follows that everything in the Kingdom of GOD stands in absolute contradiction to what is of the world we live in.
The ‘Spiritual’ [= ‘Spirit’ + ‘Life’ of YESHUA] that forms and governs reality in the Kingdom is absolutely different from the ‘spiritual’ that forms and governs the fabric of the world in ‘sin and death’.
What is of CHRIST unfolds in the Tree of Life and what is of the world unfolds in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. What is of CHRIST manifests and develops the eternal and abiding realities of the Kingdom of GOD; and, what is of the world manifests in sin and death and evil [see Deut 30:14-15, KJV] which is the testament of the Domain of Darkness, the kingdom governed by the serpent and the dragon.
The Mysteries of the Kingdom bring on ‘the Beginning of the Creation of GOD’ – by the Amen of YHWH’s Will, manifested in the faithful and true Witness of YESHUA, by the HOLY SPIRIT [see Rev 3:14b + Rom 8:2].
What we will open by the SPIRIT, in CHRIST JESUS in this end-time outpouring of the former and the latter rain, will be of the Kingdom Mysteries of GOD revealing: “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” As YESHUA has declared: “greater things than these will you do in My Name”! Amen!
Amen: come, Lord Jesus.
