The mystery of the Kingdom of God

OnionWhat makes your eyes fill with tears, without feeling sad?  You’ve probably guessed it – an onion. 

Like an onion, the Word of God has many layers.  Christ told many parables. His parables are the top layer, with many layers of meaning underneath.

Some of his parables were about the land owner, sabbaths, festivals and harvests.  The first parable Jesus told in Mark chapter 4  was the Parable of the Sower.  To the disciples and those with the twelve it was given them to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God.

“When He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parable. 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 …”  Mark 4:10

I’d like to share some of the layers I’ve peeled back over the 25 years of reading the Bible, and show you patterns I’ve discovered in the word.  I’d love to hear your insights as well.

Here’s some insight on the number fifty: Number fifty, what does it signify?


Mark 4:26

  1. If I may, I would love to ask you a question about the mystery of the kingdom of God. Since Jesus would not reveal this secret to everyone, have you found something you feel you can freely share or something reserved for the Holy Spirit to guide you into who you should or should not share it with?


    • Hi Kenneth, The only constraint I’ve had from the Holy Spirit is not to cast pearls before swine, i.e. only pass on revelation to those who believe and will appreciate it. The other thing I’ve learned is you don’t have to be a theologian to be taken into His confidence, just be wise. The Lord wants anyone dealing with the subject to have a deep respect for His Word and handle it with care.
      I’ve been working on a book called “The End”which is about the Kingdom to come. Some chapters do deal with the mystery of the Kingdom, and I’ve certainly had to ask for wisdom while writing about it.
      I hope this helps. If you have anything specific you would like me to answer please let me know.
      Kind regards,
