Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God…
We all desire to see God’s will on Earth as it is in Heaven, just like Jesus prayed. But we don’t always know how to walk in that Kingdom possibility. Jesus reveals that the Kingdom of God is literally manifested through the hearts of his children. We don’t have to go somewhere to get an anointing or partake in a “Kingdom Revival.” The Kingdom of God is within, in all its fullness!
In Mark 4:15, Jesus reveals that the parable about the sower and the word is about four different heart conditions. Jesus begins his explanation saying that if you don’t get this parable, you won’t understand the rest of what he teaches. The heart is the center of our being and the location of our capacity to believe.
Romans 10:10 says that it’s with the heart that man believes. Believing is a capacity of the heart. Proverbs tells us to guard our hearts because it affects everything we do.
Out of our heart flow all the issues of life. Jesus made statements like “all things are possible to him who believe.” We have a hard time injecting ourselves into promises like that. If all things are possible for believers, and believing is of the heart, we need to know how our hearts work.
Mark 4:26-27 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
When we meditate on the Word of God and rest in His promises, our hearts will be established and we will see the Kingdom manifested. That is the Mystery of the Kingdom that is revealed in this parable.
