The knowledge of the kingdom of heaven....

"The knowledge of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them"

This is so true. Yesterday I stopped by a friend's house because she asked me to study the bible with her. I showed her the truth about how to receive the forgiveness sins through the passover. I told her, " the bible explicitly says,"

" I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks blood has eternal life and I will raise him up in the last day.' John 6:53-54

But how do we eat Jesus flesh and blood?

"On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover...While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." Matthew 26:7,26-28

So I asked her according to the bible, what is the way the eat Jesus flesh and blood, and she said it was obviously through the Passover. When she responded, she said it as though this lesson was a piece of cake. But I asked her, if it was so simple how come she never heard of it before or celebrated it before? She was speechless. Then I showed her Matthew 13:11:

"The knowledge of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them"

When she read that verse, she thanked Father Christ Ahnsahnghong for allowing her to understand this great truth which is not just acquired by knowledge alone, but by the decision, grace and power of true God Almighty Christ Ahnsahnghong.
