IBS mark 4:10-11 "and when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. And he said unto them unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables"
"Ask and you shall receive seek and you shall find", unto these it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God, ask about the things of God, seek Him with your whole heart and you will find him. Austin has often told me about how the disciples were those who after the initial message or teaching would come to Jesus and ask about it. I make everything so difficult, looking everywhere for answers except to the one who actually has the answers, I don't know why, it's like a disease or something, it's like spiritual retardation. The crowds would come to Jesus for food or healing but ultimately for joy, which is all anyone ever seeks, and when they did not immediately receive what they wanted in the form they thought they wanted it they left and returned to their everyday lives of seeking whatever in all the wrong places. I do the same thing so often, the correct way is to come to Him, ask, wait, receive, give thanks and praise. It really is as simple as it seems
