I can answer this question. Why are we stupid? Why is there closed and sealed information in the bible? To start with.
10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and
shall not perceive:
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with
their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear
those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Only a select few are privileged to know the secrets of heaven. Why? After years of work I managed to put the pieces together. And had quite an
experience along the way. Apparently he takes verse 15 very seriously if you can crack his secrets.
So let me give you the big one. Why the secrecy? Why the Parables? The problem put simply is here.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a
So why did Jesus Christ suddenly turn on the Jews and start with the parables and the secrecy in Matthew 13? It's explained in Matthew 17.
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come?
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son
of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
John the Baptist wasn't supposed to die when he did. Herod in beheading John the Baptist has triggered the curse mentioned in Malachi 4. And I found
the details of the curse in the book of Hosea. And in working it out I managed to determine the length of the curse. 2000 years. Hosea 6-2.
And that is Jesus Christ's biggest secret. The world is under a major curse. And as he says in Matthew 13 the world is not supposed to know about it
until it's over.
