God Reveals Secrets

As mentioned in our post Sealed and Revealed,  there are several mysteries mentioned in God’s word. Some were sealed for specific times, time frames, generations. That is what God told Daniel in Daniel 12:9 KJV “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”

We could look at the differences in how the Holy Spirit worked in the Old Testament and compare to the New Testament.  But that is not the focus of this post.

Since Jesus Christ came, shed his blood on the cross to pay for all sin of mankind ( Hebrews 10:12 KJV “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;”)  and conquered death, hell and the grave, those who believe and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour  (Hebrews 10:19-23 ) – have boldness with God.

Paul was explaining this to Jews in Hebrews 8:6-13 that God set up a “better covenant” through Jesus Christ and Paul was explaining this to Gentiles in Romans chapter 10.

This is one of those mysteries that God sealed for generations but later revealed. Colossians 1:25-29 KJV
” Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
[26] Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
[27] To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
[28] Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
[29] Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.”

God had shown King David this time frame was coming. David commented on this revealing / revelation in Psalm 32:1-2 KJV “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
[2] Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.”

The question then, who can know these secrets? Clearly scripture teaches if we seek to know these things of God, all we need to do is ask him and then through searching them out in his word, we can know. That does not mean we can know everything. Only God knows everything.

One of the secrets misquoted many, many times today is 1 Corinthians 2:9. How many times I have heard Christians  and even Pastors say 1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Then they stop. They try to make it vague. I start yelling at my tv sometimes, Yeah but READ THE NEXT VERSE!

1 Corinthians 2:10-11 KJV “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
[11] For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”

It is no wonder why people do not know or do not understand things of God. Friends, let God be true and every man a liar. Believe God and his word over any man. Until next time.
