Treasure


Mat 13:52  Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
 
I must have read this several times, but only now does it seem new to me. Every scribe, a scribe knows the word of God, he knows every word carefully writing it without error. He is instructed unto or about the kingdom of heaven. He is like a householder that brings forth new and old treasures. The spiritual kingdom of heaven treasures are both the old and the new testaments. The prophets spoke and many prophecies were fulfilled in the New Testament and will be fulfilled in the coming years or days.
 
The apostle Paul was one who knew the old testament and by revelation of God he applied his knowledge in speaking of the New Covenant. We are to read the whole Bible so that the Holy Spirit can reveal things to us, new and old things in a new light. The Old Testament often is as parables or symbols of spiritual truths revealed in the New Testament. The types and shadows in the old are met by the revealing light of God in the new. If there are shadows it is because we have not enough of the light. With God there are no shadows for he is light and truth.
 

Jas 1:17  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Jas 1:18  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
