The Code Breaker

"As he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant, he said, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but for others they are in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand." Luke 8:9-10 RSV

Is the kingdom of God an exclusive club as the quote above suggests? In some ways, yes. We are all God's creatures by definition; he created us all. However, not all of God's creatures will inherit the kingdom of heaven. Lucifer, for instance, was created by God with the same 'free will' given to us. Lucifer used his free will to declare war on God and his family, and herein lies the secret why some will understand and others will never understand. We are at war.

Another dimension exists that we seldom perceive. In this dimension, God's angels minister to the world and individuals. In this dimension his principalities protect and defend. It is also in this dimension that battles are planned and fought. This dimension has the capacity to perceive our world, but our world seldom perceives them.

As in any natural war, there are spies. Those who would keep the 'marching orders' from the troops so as to confuse the troops creating chaos in the ranks. Therefore, these secrets may be encrypted in code, or parables, so that only those dressed in God's full armor can understand the next plan of attack. The key to this is stated in Luke 8:11" Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved."RSV

So, how do we hear the encrypted word? We need the Code Breaker and it's name is The Holy Spirit.
