The Gift to Know The Secret of Kingdom of Heaven (Evening)
Matthew 13: 11-12 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the [a]mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.
There is a testimony from Cornelia, one of our church members. One day she received a message via WhatsApp from a minister in the church. The man asked her account number, because someone from Salatiga sent a blessing to her through the church. She was so shocked and afraid, her body trembled, because the person who sent the blessing did not want to be named. The man calmed her and said that the blessing came from God. At that moment, she prayer and asked God for guidance about the blessing she received. She also asked Him to show the sender was.
Instead of answering her question, the Holy Spirit reminded her that God loves her very much and God can move anyone’s heart to become a channel of blessing to anyone who pleases God. She cried in and said, _”Who am I God, that You love me so much.”_ She then gave tha half lf the amount of the money received to the church.

It is the Holy Spirit who gives us revelation, gives us understanding and faith to believe in God. Only those who are gifted by the Holy Spirit will be able to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven and enjoy the Blessings of All Seasons. Therefore, build a close relationship with God, and He will enable us to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven so that God’s blessings will always be poured out in every season of our lives.
