In the book of Daniel, the LORD allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to besiege Jerusalem. He ordered the court officials to bring in young Israelite men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. These men were renamed to Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
Daniel purposed in his heart and requested not to be defiled with the portion of the king’s delicacies or wine. After ten days Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were healthier and more nourished than the young men who ate the royal food.
The LORD also gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. They did not conform to the Babylonian system but walked in integrity with God. Nebuchadnezzar found them ten times better than the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.
Nebuchadnezzar had a dream which troubled him. He summoned his magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers to interpret his dream but they were not able to, so he killed them by cutting them into pieces. Daniel discussed this with his friends (as he called them before their name was changed) Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah and urged them to plead for mercy from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that he and his friends might not be executed along with those other men.
During the night, the LORD revealed this mystery to Daniel in a vision. When he gave King Nebuchadnezzar the interpretation, Nebuchadnezza fell down at Daniels feet and said, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the LORD of kings and a revealer of mysteries.
Today the Holy Spirit is revealing the mysteries of visions and dreams as well as the interpretations to believers.
He is releasing His secrets to those whom He could trust, and exposing the hearts and minds of men. Those who have submitted to the process of transformation and refused to be defiled with the things of this world will know His voice and discern His ways. He will open doors of influence to those who are serving Him without compromise because they have surrendered their lives and have crucified their old nature and ways of thinking.
These mysteries are being imparted to you as you study and search His Word as you would search for a treasure. You are being cultivated by spending quality time in the secret place of His presence.
There is an open door and Jesus wants to reveal His ways to you. He will give you wisdom and discernment.
In the book of Matthew 13:10 Jesus’ disciples went to Him and asked Him, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” Jesus replied, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given”.
As you store up His word in your heart, you will soon come into a higher level of revelation and you will acknowledge Him as the revealer of mysteries.
“He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light,” Job 12:22.
“He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him,” Daniel 2: 22.
“Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, prostrate before Daniel, and commanded that they should present an offering and incense to him. The king answered Daniel, and said, “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret.” Then the king promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts; and he made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon. Also Daniel petitioned the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king,” Daniel 2:46-49.
“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name,” Isaiah 45:3.
“He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given,” Matthew 13:11.
