WILD WHEAT AND ANGELS-WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH US?
Hidden secrets abound. The spirit of revelation is given, and we begin to see the kingdom of God develop before our eyes. Why does one person understand the mystery of God and the spiritual world while the one beside him doesn't?
Is it a matter of intellect? Or is there a more profound spiritual truth that we may miss in this explanation?
The Scriptures tell us God desires that all men and women be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Yet the Scriptures also say you cannot come to the Father unless the Holy Spirit draws you.
If that sounds like a mystery, we have a good starting place for our discussion tonight.
The 13th chapter of Matthew is one of the most remarkable sections of the teachings that Jesus gave us in the Gospels. Jesus was dealing with two distinct groups of people: the mass crowds that he taught by the seashore and his disciples that he taught in a private house.
Matthew 13 contains his most famous parables: The Farmer and the Seed, the Good Wheat and the Wild Wheat that the Angels collected, the Hidden Treasures, the wild wheat the angels collected, the hidden treasures, and the parable of the Fishing Net.
The parables concern the kingdom of God, yet none of the large crowd understood what he was saying.
The disciples took him aside to ask questions about the parables, and he revealed the kingdom of God to them.
He told his disciples, "I will speak to you in allegories. I will reveal secrets that have been concealed since before the foundation of the world."
In verse 17, he continued, "Many prophets and godly people yearned to see these days of miracles that you've been favored to see. They would have given anything to hear the revelation you've been favored to hear."
Because you and I live on this side of the cross and resurrection, we are favored to hear the revelations that God is giving to this generation. And because of that, he is preparing us for a supernatural expansion of the visible and tangible kingdom of God that we live in today.
Some call it the third great awakening. Others refer to it as a supernatural move of God on the Earth. I call it the answer to Matthew 6: "Lord, let it be on earth as it is in heaven."
