The Kingdom of Heaven comes not with observation; it comes mysteriously! The Kingdom of Heaven is spiritual, invisible. It is within (Luke 17:20).
When JESUS was telling the parable of the sower to the multitude, HE said the seed was symbolic of the WORD of GOD (Luke 8:11). This HE told HIS disciples. The Kingdom of Heaven is in the heart of the believer. The believer’s heart, where the SPIRIT of GOD resides, is the only good place, the only place of understanding. Only the SPIRIT inside the heart of the believer understands the SPIRIT, which is the WORD (John 6:63).
The WORD or the seed falls into the heart, which is where the Kingdom of Heaven is, where the WORD is (Luke 8:15). The mystery of it is easily understood.
The good heart knows that it has been given the Kingdom of Heaven within for one main reason, and that is for it to bear fruit, to win souls to CHRIST.1 All other soils or ground, the wayside, the stony ground, and the thorny place, do not have the Kingdom of Heaven in them (Matthew 13:3-7). Therefore, they do not understand the language of the SPIRITUAL Kingdom, the WORDS of GOD in CHRIST, and they are incapable of understanding CHRIST (1 Corinthians 2:9-14). Only the SPIRIT can understand the SPIRIT.
JESUS’ disciples asked JESUS why HE speaks to the multitude in parables. HE told them, “Because it is given unto you [who have the Kingdom of Heaven, the SPIRIT of GOD in you. You have been born again of the SPIRIT for you] to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them [the unsaved, those that have not received the soul of GOD, CHRIST, ETERNAL LIFE, the Kingdom of Heaven, the SPIRIT, the WORD] it is not given” (Matthew 13:10-11).
JESUS says, “For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance [because the SPIRIT of life keeps adding more and more life, power, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to saved souls, as well as substance]: but whosoever has not [the soul of GOD], from him shall be taken away even that he has. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand [because they are dead spiritually]” (Matthew 13:12-13).
If you understand, if you wish to have the Kingdom of Heaven within, to have GOD’S SOUL, HIS SPIRIT, HIS LIFE in you, to be born again of the SPIRIT2 so you are able to understand the mysteries of GOD and enter Heaven, then say this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
