The mysteries of the Kingdom of God belong to you. These mysteries are unlocked by the Holy Spirit during prayer. Not only are mysteries spiritual revelations of the Word of God we call rhema, but also revealed mysteries of your Kingdom walk with Christ guided by the Holy Spirit.
In the Bible, there are two Greek words rhema and logos. Both these Greek words translate as word in the English language. Rhema is revelatory, and logos is written. (Black ink on white paper.) This means it’s possible to read the text of Scripture and receive a revelation as to what that word means to you personally. Jesus said, “It is the spirit that giveth life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words (rhema) that I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life” (John 6:63 ASV).
To understand these mysteries requires prayer. First, let’s understand Christ taught the masses of people different than his Disciples. To the masses, he taught in parables, but to His Disciples, he was more direct. This puzzled his Disciples, and they asked him to explain why the parables. A Biblical parable is a story that teaches a spiritual principle. Christ said, “This is the reason that I speak to them in parables: because having the power of seeing, they do not see; and having the power of hearing, they do not hear, nor do they grasp and understand” (Matthew 13:13 AMP). In other words, these people are listening, but they don’t get it. Then He answered his Disciples in a most direct way, “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them, it is not given” (Matthew 13:11).
This should really encourage you. The mysteries of the Kingdom of God belong to you. As already said, the mysteries of the Kingdom of God unlock God’s plan for your life. These mysteries are revealed to you through prayer by the Holy Spirit.
Apostle Paul taught an amazing truth about prayer. One day he was teaching about praying in other tongues. He wrote, “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit, he speaketh mysteries” (1 Corinthians 14:2). Did you get that? He wrote, “In the spirit he speaketh mysteries.” Prayer warriors understand the importance of the Holy Spirit in prayer. “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities (prayer weaknesses): for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself (himself) maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).
The bottom line is this, when you pray in other tongues your spirit, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, is praying out the mysteries of God. Said another way, praying out the plan of God for your future.
