hidden...MAtthew 33:14

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The angels are truly celebrating in heaven today :) Praise you Jesus.

This morning something was pointed out to me that I haven’t been able to shake.

Matt 13:33 He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and MIXED into a large amount[b] of flour until it worked all through the dough."

When Jesus spoke of the two visual analogies of the kingdom of heaven, he spoke of a mustard seed and yeast. The woman who was kneading the yeast into the vast quantities of dough to make the bread in the kingdom analogy (where the kingdom is the yeast) was not mixing it but...

HIDING it.

The word used is the greek crypto from where we get crypt. It means to HIDE. Why would Jesus use that word instead of ‘mix the yeast’ or ‘integrate, open up the yeast into the bread?’ why would the kingdom of heaven be HIDDEN within the dough and then the tiny yeast permeate it enough to feed hundreds?

It hit me because of what we have missed over and over about God and his character.

Intimacy.

In the secret place, in the hidden place. What he HIDES within us, when we seek his kingdom first infront of NOBODY……hundreds supernaturally get fed because the yeast we hide within us in our times in the holy of holies, permeates into the world and kingdom around us.

Is this even making sense?!
