The Glory of Kings..

“it’s the glory of kings to search out a matter”(Proverbs 25:2). We are kings and priests to our God (see Rev. 1:6). Our royal identity never shines brighter than when we pursue hidden things with the confidence that we have legal access to such things. Mysteries are our inheritance.  (Bill Johnson. Bethel).Jesus answered them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not be granted” (Matt. 13:11 NASB). “He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.” (KJV). Whey we some given insight and others none? Because they were seekers. the seekers get to partake in the glory. seek my face my face shall ye see.The Bereans “received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so” (Acts 17:10-11). “For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.” (v12).We debate and discuss sometimes its uncomfortable. I notice this is the fijians they are a fine nation of people calm considerate and non confrontive. The Welsh are different. Here in Wales we are surrounded by universities and centers of education and learning. Folks from all over the world attend our universities because our standard of education is of the highest standard. How did we get there? by dabate! The brits are natural debaters, look at the house of parliament. The Americans love the way we fight over issues yet keep our cool! its not politically correct not even in the house of parliament but it is politically brilliant!Its no no surprise then that then that the church will mirror whats around it. As the physical so too the spiritual we should prepare ourselves for a thinking church. one with expansive minds where folks readily seek the gold in hidden treasure. should that be the goal of all great ministries.The Welsh are natural vigilanties. We like to throw out questions, cause a rucus! and why not! its stops us getting complacency, deceived and bored. You have to ask the difficult question among men who feel comfortable with its difficulty and lets face it if the pastor can preach Gods word as is we should have the right to ask questions and throw back the punches as is! If he can make a demand we are right to make a discussion. A good pastor will produce leaders of a like kind to whom it will be said, “to you it is given to know these mysteries.” isnt it true the talkers rule the world be it houses of politics and discussion.  Well isn’t it time we rose up as kings and began seeking out these matters?
