The Mysteries of the Kingdom
Dan 12:8 I heard, but I Understand not
Dan 12:4 Knowledge shall be I.
God is going to give the knowledge in Jesus’s Day’s.
Dan 12:8-10 Wicked = apostate Israel Wise = Little Flock
Matt 13:10-11 you = wise Them = wicked
Matt 13:12-18 Daniel wanted to know.
Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
In other words, the things he is going to write about are the secrets of the seven stars.
Think about it for a minute. There are some mysteries, in Revelation 1, associated with the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3. He calls it the “mystery of the seven stars,” the seven churches.
There are seven parables in Matthew 13. There are seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3. The parables are mystery parables. The churches are mystery (secret) churches. Does that suggest something to you? The seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 are an enlargement of the parables of Matthew 13. The seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 fit in the tribulation period. Guess where the parables in Matthew 13 fit?
Notice one thing:
Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear …
2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear …
2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear …
2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear …
3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear …
3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
To every one of those churches, he says, “He that hath an ear, let him hear.”
That is a particular statement that fits the nation of Israel’s situation in the tribulation.
There are 7 parables that have these Mysteries in them.
What is the issue? The issue is the Kingdom. Write it down in your memory. Do not forget this. When Jesus Christ taught those people in parables, the subject that He was dealing with was the Kingdom, not the Church, the Body of Christ, not the Dispensation of Grace, but the establishment of the Kingdom. That is the issue in the parables.
Every one of these parables is talking about the Kingdom. Okay, then what are the parables about? The topic they deal with is the establishment of the Kingdom. There are other parables, and they all focus on the establishment of the Kingdom, kingdom living, kingdom salvation or kingdom people. They all focus on some aspect of the Kingdom and those who are going to be used to establish that Kingdom one day.
Why did He speak in parables? – To conceal the truth from some and to reveal it to others.

One is the historical application: this event took place and meant something to somebody at the time it was written.
Then there is the spiritual application of doctrines and biblical principles that are relevant throughout all the word of God. They are always true, and you can get spiritual insight, help and instruction from them.
There is the doctrinal application. When you study the Bible, you ought to go for this one first; that is, those passages have something to do with every other verse in the Bible. The doctrinal application often concerns the tribulation.
