TOPIC: SIMILITUDE OF THE PROPHET
TEXT: MATTHEW 13:11
“He answered them, ” To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not given to them.”
God hides precious things *FOR US* and not *lFROM US
They are kept away for us so that we don’t disclose them to our adversaries.
Why does He hide them?
“How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you…..You hide them in the shelter of your presence,
safe from those who conspire against them.
You shelter them in your presence,
far from accusing tongues.”
Some of us, if God tells us what He plans to do for us in a few months or few years, we will reveal it to the adversaries without even knowing.
I want you to know how God reveals it to us without letting the adversaries get hold of it.
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever.
Whenever God is about to make any change in your life, He does it first in the spiritual realm.
The spiritual realm is where the root is, while the physical realm is where the fruit manifests.
When you pray, God makes a change in the spiritual realm.
Before the change will manifest here on earth, you must discern how the change appears on earth.
You must first accept that every change in the spiritual realm must cause a change on earth.
How you discern and respond to the change is what brings the manifestation.
Sometimes, when you correct a program or upgrade a particular design on your computer, the change doesn’t usually appear at first until you refresh the page or reboot the computer.
The Lord will always give you a sign.
For example, when the prophet prophesied that there would be abundant within 24 hours, leppers(outcast) were the ones who brought the good news.
The problem with a lot of Christians is that they always set their mind on a particular individual because of that they think the person has.
As a result of this, they miss God’s best.
The Lord says in His word that woe unto anyone who put his or her trust in man.
The effect of it that he or she won’t see when good comes. He won’t see because he is looking in the wrong direction.
Imagine lepers(unclean) invading the city to give information about the food bank.
Leprosy is a very complex problem.
Sometimes, when God effect a change for your glory, one of the signs you may see physically is that a problem may surface.
But Inside the problem contains the solution you have been waiting for.
Imagine what would happened If everyone in the city chased the leppers away before listening to them, the abundance would have been forfeited.
There are problems that are solution in disguise.
This is one of the prophetic SIMILITUDE by which God may have been speaking to you.
Delay like missing your flight ✈️ may be a blessing because God want you to meet someone in your next flight.
I have seen many individuals on social media who received help from viewers because someone spotted them and made a video recording of what they were going through.
Not all problems are from Satan. God gave Peter His ministry in a vision in the form of unclean animals, but he rejected it.
There are Christians who have missed favor and benefits because they rejected what God offered them through an individual they do not like.
Jesus came to Isreal, but they rejected their Messiah
You and I need to ask The Lord for mercy concerning areas we have rejected the things meant for our peace.
May The Lord bless His word in your heart.
