Written by Leon Teamer
“Every scribe which is instructed unto the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which brings forth out of his treasure things new and old.” (Matthew 13: 52)
“The mandrakes give a smell, and at our gates are all manner of pleasant fruits, new and old, which I have laid up for thee, O my beloved.” (Song of Solomon 7: 13)
Every thought and word of God has a door of entrance that we may enter in and find treasure. This treasure of God is hid in a field (the bible), and when we find a gold nugget of revelation, we must go and sell all that we have and purchase that field. In other words, when we receive a revelation from God we must be sorely tried and tested by God in that revelation, in order to buy from God a full and complete understanding of His word. The more we pass God’s test, the more He will reveal the truth of His word and His eternal plan. In similar fashion, in our earthly school system, when we complete and pass the curriculum of one grade level, only then are we promoted and permitted to be taught the curriculum that is in the next grade level. This is how the revelation in these epistles were conceived and established.
The moment that we receive a fresh enlighten revelation from God, it becomes in our mouth intoxicatedly sweet, luring us by its revealed glory. However, in order that we may be rooted and grounded in the truth of God’s plan, God has to train and discipline us in that revelation; then the revelation becomes bitter in our stomach or grievously difficult to endure God’s training camp. This is the time in our spiritual development that God is pressing us out of measure, beyond endurance, in so much that we despair, even of life. God is pressing us so that we may have no confidence, whatsoever, in our own sufficiency; neither confidence in the words, wisdom, and strength of mankind. This pressing helps us not to glory in the riches of revelation or in the riches of earthly things; but it reminds us that we are only stewards of the treasures of God and not the owners. God has no respect of person; we must all travel this pathway of testing before we come into the reality of God’s promises.
Nothing can be built and permanently maintained without a revelation from God, but every revelation must be tried in the furnace of suffering before it can enter into the realm called truth and become a permanent fixture; then that fixture becomes reality or a sure foundation in which we can safely trust in. God’s holy word is truth; reality is proven truth. Every truth of God correlates and agrees with each other, interacting together in oneness, so that one truth will open the door into another truth; it will lead us from one glory into a progressive glory; from one green pasture into a fresher and greener field. The written word of God is part of the communion bread of Christ which God has broken into pieces (liken unto a jigsaw puzzle); these broken pieces of truth are scattered throughout the bible by the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit of God can put the broken pieces back together in an orderly manner, so that we may behold the panoramic view of God’s eternal plan. Furthermore, the bible is written and sealed in riddles; using many allegories and symbolisms in order to hide and safeguard the secret wisdom of God from poachers and raiders, who would rob and desecrate spiritual treasures for their own selfish gain. Many people say that the bible is difficult to understand; it is designed by God to be this way. Only the sincere seeker, by the aid of God’s Spirit, can truly understand the written word; only those who have renounced the wisdom of this world and become as toddlers (poor in spirit and the pure in heart) can see God’s secret plan hidden in the word. God has veiled the eyes of those who trust in the wisdom, education, and religious institutions of this world, causing them to err in vision and stumble in judgment.
God’s word has both a natural meaning and a spiritual meaning. The natural interpretation of God’s word is limited in its expression and application, whereas the spiritual aspect of God’s word is unlimited and boundless in its expression, and its spiritual truth may be applied in many different areas. This is the manifold wisdom of God; the wonders of His creative ability to take many things and interlace them together to form one collective expression. Every natural thing that God created on this earth has a spiritual connotation behind it; if we will find out the spiritual meaning behind it then we will have gained an in-depth understanding or insight into God’s mannerism and His expressive style of operation. This is God’s mannerism; He loves to hide things underneath other things and wait for us to diligently seek His face, so that He may uncover the treasures that lie beneath. He delights to behold the joyous expression of discovery on our faces and the spirit of satisfaction in our hearts; in like manner, as a thoughtful husband surprising his beloved wife with a cherished gift. The scripture of God clearly states that the invisible things of God are clearly seen and understood by the things that are visibly made. This is why Christ spoke in parables; hiding spiritual treasures underneath familiar natural stories. Jesus stated that God is a Spirit, and they that worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth. When God speaks about a particular topic using natural things for description, He uses the natural as an illustration for comparison, in order that we may have something to identify with and to ease our mind so that we may be able to receive enlightenment without the fear of being deceived. Also, this instills confidence that we are on the right pathway that leads into truth. God is a Spirit, the core and the truth of everything that He says has its essence and foundation in the spirit realm; it is in this realm that we must focus and pay close attention to. First the natural and then the spirit; God uses the natural as His proving ground before anything can be called true or real. The natural is a shadow and reflection of the truth, and not the exact image; it is a signpost pointing us towards the Spirit. As the moon receives it’s light from the sun and reflects it unto the earth, so does the natural reflect the illuminating knowledge of God’s Spirit unto humanity.
There is nothing that God has hidden, that in due season He will not reveal. He will give us the keys to the Kingdom for the purpose of unlocking and entering into the mysteries and the riches of heavenly things, in order that God may develop and mature His image and likeness in us; that we may reflect His personality, disposition, or mannerism in various ways. These keys are God’s righteousness. God‘s righteousness is the scepter of His Kingdom that gives us the legal right to enter into all the goodness that He has prepared for us. One of these golden guidelines or keys of the Kingdom is that God’s revelation is progressive, always moving onward into a fuller and complete godly experience. Therefore, let us never cling unto anything that we experience in this life, thinking or saying that this is the best of all experiences and that there can be no greater. Rather, let us freely let go and relinquish these delightful experiences, so that God may lead us into greener fields of enrichment and heavenly delights. For in God’s Kingdom there is always a higher plateau for us to climb and to behold its glorious view; He always has in the waiting new untraveled pathways for us to enjoy. As the bible states, “No one who puts their hands to the plow and looking back is fit (ready) for the Kingdom of God" . How can we that are filled with the old wine have any room for fresh fermented wine without first making available room? It is not that we throw away the old wine of proven principles and sound teachings; it is simply that we ask God to enlarge our heart and the border of our understanding to receive a fresh vision of God. This will ensure that we never become dull and unresponsive, but always sensitive to the moving of the Spirit of God. This principle teaches us to always be patient, alert, and content but never in the state of stagnancy . By the same token, when we inhale fresh flowing air into our body, it quickens us and gives us vital strength and constant life; however, to maintain a continual life we must exhale the old to make room for the new inspiring breath of life. Another major key to the kingdom of God is this: the earth is our school, our circumstance is our classroom, the bible is our textbook, and our body is the report card. The more we complete and pass God’s tests and requirements in each grade level, the more our body will develop and reflect perfect wellness. However, the body is designed by God in such a way that if we fail the requirements, then our body will become our indicator by conveying or reflecting a steady regression in health. This is why Jesus, after healing an individual, would say “go and sin no more, less a greater thing comes upon you”; in other words, a greater illness will appear in our body. On the mountain of transfiguration, Jesus demonstrated to His disciples how the human body will reflect the achievement of anyone who passes God’s tests and discipline training.
We have written these nuggets of truth so that we all may be perfectly joined together in understanding the way God thinks and the purposes of His design; and that we all may fellowship together with God in the things that He values. Our hearts’ desire is that there is no division among the members of the body of creation; that we may all flow together with one heart and one way.
 II Corinthians 1: 8 -10; Hebrew 10: 32-33
 Isaiah 28: 16
 Toddlers do not make any decisions; they are totallydependent on their parents.
 I Corinthians 2:7-16
 Comparable to a word, idea, or thing that has both a literal and figurative meaning
 The letter of God’s word
kills but the Spirit of God’s word gives life(II Corinthians 3:6)
 For example, the spiritual meaning behind these human body parts are:
· The head represents supreme rulership
· The forehead represents
·The ears represent comprehension
· The eyes represent insight and foresight
· The nose represents discernment
· The mouth represents creative expression and sound wisdom
· The tongue represents realization
· The teeth represents meditation or contemplation
· The chin and neck represents willfulness or volition
· The shoulders represent responsibility
 Romans 1:20
 The inner spirit is the image of God
 The soul is the likeness of God
 The orderly ways in which He arranged and composed the operation of His Kingdom; the principles and the laws that governs His Kingdom
 Looking back at the old and past experience
 Luke 9:62
 This is the law of God that oversees progressive life in the spirit as well as in the natural.
