Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
God is at work in our world today. He has a plan. That plan has been revealed in stages. He was at work in the very beginning, but people didn’t understand or see the full program. They saw His character. They saw His love.
But when Jesus arrived, He was telling them new things. These secrets were being revealed in His parables. Those parables show truths that He has planned since the beginning of human time.
Soon He will reveal the church. Salvation and the church with its program of world evangelism are being revealed.
