For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For hat man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 2:10-11).

We have been reviewing Matthew 13:11-13, in which Jesus explains His use of parables. Referring to those who lack understanding, Jesus says, “and in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled” (Matthew 13:14). There are prophecies we want fulfilled in our life, and there are others we do not want fulfilled, such as the one that in Matthew 13:14-15, “hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive. For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed.” God was giving them truth, and they closed their eyes and stopped their ears. In verse 16, He contrasts His disciples with the Pharisees and says, “but blessed are your eyes for they see.” God is saying to the church today, right here at Corpus Christi Christian Fellowship, “blessed are your eyes for they see.” This is exciting for me! BLESSED ARE YOUR EYES FOR THEY SEE! God says here that you have perception and ability not to see only the surface of a matter, but to see through it and into it. He is giving us a promise, and we must take it. We must never let it go! “Blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it” (Matthew 13:16-17).

You and I want to treasure everything that God says to us. We want to capture the message, apply it diligently, and continually seek increased understanding. You want what is of God that comes in your ear to remain in you; you do not want to lose it. Likewise, God desires what He say to you to stay with you. He wants you to see things in Him that you can never get out of your mind. And what then will He do? He will give you eternal understanding. He will give you an understanding of the ages with the wisdom of the ancients. He wants to give you secrets that no man has ever known. One may say, “well, Pastor, what will that do?” To have the wisdom of God puts one in a unique place: a place where one understands the voice of the Father. We have the mind of Christ. We have this great mind that is never confused, confounded, or bewildered. All we need to do is activate our faith by BELIEVING. Thus will we apprehend all He has given us in Jesus Christ.
