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 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 them.
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.”
We are living in a time that the Holy Spirit is revealing mysteries to the body of Christ. He is giving us visions and dreams, revealing the interpretation of dreams to us, releasing His secrets to those who 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 the kingdom of darkness will know His voice and discern His ways.
He will open doors of influence to those who are not trying to promote themselves or their ministries, but are serving Him without compromise. To those who have surrendered their lives and have crucified their old nature and ways of thinking, He will reveal His secrets.
These mysteries are being imparted to you as you study His Word and sought out the mysteries of the kingdom. 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 wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to the discerning. As you store up His treasures in your heart, you will soon come into a higher level of understanding the mysteries of the kingdom and you will acknowledge Him as the revealer of mysteries.
“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 prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.” Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men. Moreover, at Daniel’s request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel himself remained at the royal court,” 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,” I saiah 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.
