The king answered Daniel and said, “Surely your God is a God of gods and a Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, since you have been able to reveal this mystery.” Daniel 2:47.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I reveal mysteries. “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.” Daniel 2:22. How do I reveal them to you? By My Word as breathed by My Spirit. “We speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.’ For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:7-10.
Things which are hidden, I uncover. But all mysteries are revealed in Jesus, for My Spirit testifies to Jesus. It is the Holy Spirit in you that continues the work of Jesus on the earth. “When the Helper (Paraclete) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.” John 15:26-27.
The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. Revelation 19:10. “As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to gain a clear glimpse.” 1 Peter 1:10-12.
In Jesus are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge and I reveal them to you as you are ready by My Spirit. The Spirit is revealing to you what I have freely given you in Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:12. Jesus explained, for He comes from My innermost being, My bosom, and He explains Me in ways you can understand, “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.” John 16:12-15.
What are the hidden mysteries? The hidden manna? Now you know partially but one day you will fully know, even as you are known by Me. But I revealed much to My servant Paul. “When you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” Ephesians 3:4-6. And how did this come about? In Jesus, for He “reconciled them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near; for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:16-22.
And another mystery hidden but now revealed in Christ: “the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:26-27. For those who believe in My Son as Lord, I give the gift of the Holy Spirit and the Kingdom. Acts 2:38; Luke 12:32. And now Jesus dwells in you by the Spirit, as do I also. “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16. “For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.” 1 Corinthians 2:11-13.
Paul tells you that he prayed in tongues more than any of you. And he had more revelation than any one of you. Do you see a correlation there? “For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit, he speaks mysteries.” 1 Corinthians 14:2. He desired that you all speak in tongues, 1 Corinthians 14:5, for when you pray in tongues you edify yourself. 1 Corinthians 14:4. “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27. But it is important that you seek revelation of what the Spirit is saying to your spirit when you pray in tongues. “Therefore let one who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. What is the outcome then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also.” 1 Corinthians 14:13-15.
When I revealed mysteries to My prophet Daniel, I often did it in dreams and visions in the night. And through My prophet Joel, I told you about how it would be in the times after the Holy Spirit came on you who believe as My gift to the church after I raised Jesus from the dead and glorified Him at My right hand on the throne of the Son of Man. But first just let Me tell you another mystery, that of the Church, the Body of Christ on earth, made up of all born again believers in My Son, whether they be Jew or Gentile, they are one new man in Christ. A new creation—behold I have doing something new that was hidden in ages past! The mystery of Christ and the Church, His bride the Church, whom He washes, nourishes and cares for as His own body with love and loyalty, as you continue His Works and greater ones in the earth. Accessing God by the one Spirit as you are built up as a living temple of many living stones with Christ Jesus as the capstone, i.e., the chief cornerstone.
And My Spirit fills the Church and each member can partake, and the more you partake the more you will fill up with My Spirit until rivers of the living water pour out of your inmost being to a very thirsty world.
And on Pentecost Sunday, when My Spirit descended upon the born-again believers who were waiting for the baptism of the Holy Spirit as Jesus had told them, came the fulfillment of My Words to the prophet Joel, but it was only the beginning. “It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” Joel 2:28-29. And My apostle Peter confirmed this as the astonished crowd heard tongues spoken by men, “But Peter, taking his stand with the eleven, raised his voice and declared to them: ‘Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give heed to my words. For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only the third hour of the day; but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel: And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on My bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit and they shall prophesy. And I will grant wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and glorious day of the Lord shall come. And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” Acts 2:14-21.
So how do you apply all this in your life today? Draw close to Me and let Me reveal mysteries to you. Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and mighty things you could not know. Do you have questions of what to do or a problem that needs a solution? Daniel and his companions faced certain death if they could not give the interpretation of the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar, and Nebuchadnezzar could not even remember the details of the dream! So what did Daniel do? Did he worry about it? No. “Daniel went to his house and informed his friends, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, about the matter, so that they might request compassion from the God of heaven concerning this mystery, so that Daniel and his friends would not be destroyed with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.” Daniel 2:17-19. Ask and you shall receive. I give the Holy Spirit to My children who ask Me. Luke 11:13. He is My gift to you who believe in My Son so that we can share our deepest thoughts. And though I share them in My written Word, many seeing do not see and hearing do not understand because they are not born again and their spirits are dull and dark, they have not yet been lit by the anointing of the Spirit. But your lamps are lit when you put your faith in the Name of My Son. And don’t say you cannot receive the great mysteries because you are not a learned man like Daniel, by My Spirit all from the least to the greatest can know Me and hear from Me. Remember what Jesus said as He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit? “At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.” Luke 10:21.
I love you. I have given you all you need to live a wise and beautiful life. And if you hear My voice and open the door and let Me in, I will dine with you and you with Me, and I will reveal mysteries to you beyond all you can ask or imagine. You would also do well to pray in tongues every day if you want to know mysteries so precious and vast that you may not be able to contain them all now, but there is always another level to advance to in the Spirit until the perfect day that has no end.
