It is the Glory of God to Conceal a Matter,
It is the Glory of Kings to Search out a Matter.
Proverbs 25:2

"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 1 Corinthians 2:7 Which none of the princes of this world knew: (2:7) for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1Co 2:9 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. 1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. Tools specific to 1Co 2:11 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." But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Cor. 2:14
 
     Revelation, inspiration, searching, knocking, asking;are all pathways that lead a seeker into the knowledge of the mysteries of God. "God is a Spirit," says the scripture. His divine existence is one that can only be perceived, believed on a non-sensing level. If I say that I know God, whom you neither know nor see, you can only judge my assertions on the basis of my personal credibility. Some spokes persons for God or more credible than others. The early apostles did not so much argue the existence of God as a theory or concept but to prove His existence by supernatural attestations, demonstrating the Power of God. (1Corinthians 2). So we have the matter of proving to a materialistic non believing world that God is real and that He still has a part in the day to day affairs of this world and its occupants. It is a very great mystery that it is G-d who calls us to have fellowship with Him. It is G-d who equips us to grow and minister through Him. It is G-d who preserves and keeps us until his coming to gather his called out people unto himself. So you see, that it is very little about our performance or goodness. The gift of G-d prevails throughout the life of a believer.

THE HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS THEM TO US. MANY TRY TO READ THE BIBLE, BUT THOSE WHO READ THE BIBLE DO NOT RECEIVE THE SAME UNDERSTANDINGS.

Two Aspects of the Word of God
Misinformation About the Word of God

The Bible is Revealed as the Word of TRUTH

Jesus Was the Incarnation of the Word of God

Before Creation

Faith Trusts in the Infallibility of the Word

A Veil is Upon the Word

The Living Word


What is truth? Thy word is TRUTH! The Word of God is described as a double-edged sword, the spirit and the letter of the Word are the two edges. The Logos and the Rhema are Greek words defining the two aspects of the Word of God. The word is the greatest mystery of all. It is alive. The Word is a person. HE is settled forever in heaven. The word became flesh and dwelt among us. There are 3 who bear witness in heaven, The Father, the Spirit and the Word, and these 3 agree as one.

Two Aspects of the Word of God

Man can not live by bread alone but by every word (Rhema) that proceeds out of the mouth of God. The word of God spoken is a force which created and sustains the Universe. He watches over His Word to perform it. God sent the Word and he sent the Spirit went forth to perform the Word. Perfect faith is perfect knowledge and application of the Word.

The proceeding word  is the word which teaches all things, it is shared by and it nurtures the flock of God. It is the Wonderful Counselor, the Helper who goes alongside of us (paraclete), our Friend and our Guide.

Thy Word (Gr.logos) is truth. The logos is the mind of God and the recorded Word of God. It is His unchangeable and unalterable will. The Logos is the full counsel of God it delineates and defines all truth. If you continue in my word (Logos) then are you my true disciples and you will know the Truth and the Truth will make you free.

The way of God is a mystery. The Truth of God is a mystery. The Holy Spirit reveals it. We who are of the faith may say, "I was once blind, but now I see." -John 9- Psalm 91, - The Secret Place -

Misinformation About the Word of God

Aren't all people equal? Hasn't God shared his revelation with every kindred, tribe and nation? Haven't Buddha, Krishna and Mohammed all heard form God? Should not their witness of truth be equal to the "Christian revelation" from the mouth of God? The question is universally asked and man has come up with his own answer with the help of certain spirits of deception!

There are many religions, many faiths, many religious writings and books. Who has knowledge of God? Which is true? Are they all true? Are they all from the same God as some say?

The hardest thing to argue that God has limited access to His revelation of Truth. He chose only one covenant people unto whom he would reveal himself. The Jews were that people. The only people who God chose in all the earth. The recorded word (Logos) was given unto them by the mouth of prophets and holy men of old. Yes, there were other peoples who had their priests and prophets also. The Egyptians, the Chaldeans, the Persians, the Caananites, and many others. Jehovah instructed his people to destroy any nation who worshiped false Gods. They were to be annihilated down to the last man, woman and child. These nations were corrupted by demonic influence. God would have nothing to do with them; His people were at risk of being defiled by them.

The Bible is Revealed as the Word of TRUTH

It is a major revelation of God in itself to realize that Bible is indeed DIVINE, inspired and infallible in its revelation. Only God could have prepared that word and preserved it despite the handling of it over countless centuries by mortal men. We know that heaven and earth shall pass away but that Word shall abide forever.

After finding God by faith we continue to grow in knowledge of the Truth. What is truth? In the book of John (Gospel, John 17) Jesus says to the Father, "Sanctify them with your truth, your Word is Truth?"

Of all the books written to explain God or speak for Him, only the Bible is infallible! This is a bold and absolute statement. Others do not believe this. I do. This is a statement of faith. I did not always know this. Now I do know this. He has written his word in my heart. When he does this it is established and nothing can persuade us otherwise. We would die to defend this truth.

We know that Holy men of old were moved by God's Spirit to write the accounts in the Bible. Prophets moved by the Spirit declared the thoughts of God and the intentions of God. In the Law of God any prophet whoops words proved untrue must be killed. Because nothing pertaining to God is of a lie. Satan however, is a liar. Jesus called him a deceiver, a liar from the beginning. God makes a clear line to go out from the heavens. This line separates light and darkness. The line of the Word separates truth and error. Satan however, is also at work constantly to steal and subvert the Word. It is Lucifer's intent to deceive, to kill, and to bring destruction.

Jesus the Incarnation of the Word of God

Scripture declares that by Him were the worlds made. The Word has power. In Geneses 1:3 we read, "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." In Geneses 1:6, "And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters." And again in Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Thus God spoke the Word and the worlds were created.

Before Creation

In John Chapter 17 Jesus speaks to the Heavenly Father hearkening back to a time when they shared fellowship in Glory, before the world was. The Word is the first manifestation of the creation. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1 and Colossians 1:15))

The Word is a Living Entity. Christ is the incarnation of the Word. "The word became flesh." This is a mystery. (John 1:1) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:3) "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." Thus before the world was, Christ was. He created all things. He was with the Father. (John 17:1,2)

That which is called the Word (the "Logos") is the written or recorded counsel of God, the mind of God. There is a single purpose and plan of God for this earth. It is described in one Book, the Bible, for His people to be the praise of the whole earth. This Word shall pass the test of time. Jesus' own words are recorded in Matthew 24, when he declared "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my Word shall shall never pass away."

The word of God is called a sure word. The word outlines the plan of God spoken to his servants the prophets in time past in the spirit of prophecy, the testimony of Jesus. This word is suitable for doctrine and for correction; it is the "Spirit of Wisdom and Truth."

Faith Trusts in the Infallibility of the Word

God's Word was spoken and it established the manifested universe. Words still have power to create and empower. Words control the activity of Angels and Demons. Words are Not to be Taken Lightly

In Matthew Chapter 12 verse 26, Jesus addresses the necessity of guarding every word we speak. He teaches or rather gives warning that "we will give an account for every idle word," at a time of future reckoning.

Spoken words have a spiritual force (life) in this world. We will also come to realize that human words which are out of character with God's Word and will can undo the Power of Faith.

In the epistle of James, who was a younger brother of Jesus, (Yes Mary had several children after Jesus was born according to the Gospels) writes to say that our tongues are unruly and impossible to tame, but if it could they be tamed we could become a Perfect Man! Evil easily takes over our words and we give place to another spirit which is not of/from God but against Him.

A Veil is Upon the Word Until the Veil is Removed

Because the "Living Word" is a Spiritual substance, or more correctly, a person, the light and truth of the Word is hidden until the veil is removed. Only Jesus has the power to penetrate the veil of understanding. I and others can testify how reading the Bible was at one time, a meaningless chore until Christ's Spirit became our mentor and teacher and allowed truth to be unveiled.

The link of Faith to the Word is evident building up the mind and soul of all who read. It is the Word that brings light to our understanding. It is the word which shall never pass away. He watches over His word to perform it. Amen.

   Only Jesus Christ Has the Power to Remove the Veil From Our Eyes andFrom Our Understanding

 

    Revelation, inspiration, searching, knocking, asking; these are all pathways that lead a seeker into the knowledge of the mysteries of God. "God is a Spirit," says the scripture. His divine existence is one that can only be perceived, believed on a non-sensing level. If I say that I know God, whom you neither know nor see, you can only judge my assertions on the basis of my personal credibility. Some spokes persons for God or more credible than others. The early apostles did not so much argue the existence of God as a theory or concept but to prove His existence by supernatural attestations, demonstrating the Power of God. (1Corinthians 2). So we have the matter of proving to a materialistic non believing world that God is real and that He still has a part in the day to day affairs of this world and its occupants.

Progressive Revelation

     God is a god of mysteries and hidden things. The parables taught by Jeshua (Jesus) had within them truth at varying levels, plain story-level truth and higher spiritual level revelation. There is and always was that matter of hidden truth. To Christ's disciples it was given to know the secrets of the Kingdom of God while others received no more than a moral homily. God reveals himself to some and not to others. Heaven and its mysteries are not laid bare for any to intrude upon as there are defining limits between darkness and heavenly light. The Bible truths and hidden mysteries are not delineated as point by point, topic by topic facts and realities. Thus the key to unpacking and deciphering the Word of God can not be achieved strictly by academic skills and study alone. Without the Holy Spirit which is the teacher and discipler of truth we are limited pretty much to the moral homily level of the listener.

We are given understanding in the light of Jeshua (Jesus) in a line by line, precept upon precept, understanding that Jesus is the Word of God, Itself the greatest mystery. For when the Scripture is made known in its completeness we shall See Him as He IS.

The following writings deal with the subject of Mysteries. They do little more than introduce the topics of God's mysteries, some of the mysteries. There remains, more, much more to be gleaned within these domains of study. Moreover, there are likely more and more mysteries and mysteries within mysteries which will come into our field of view in due time. Revelation is progressive and always deepening as His truth is being revealed by God's Holy Spirit in God's divine time. God is withholding certain things from us because it is not yet His time. Contrary to some ecclesiastical authorities we do not have all the answers (facts) as to Who God is and what His complete plan is for His Body, The Church (another mystery).

Matthew 16:16 But who say ye that I am?
Jesus asks his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter, answers and says, "You are the Messiah, the son of the Living God." Jesus then tells Peter, "- - - Flesh and blood have not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. This is an example of how we receive knowledge of hidden things,
Mysteries revealed by God
1Corinthians 2:0 - -"Eye has not seen nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those that love him. 10: But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11. For man knows the things of a man, save the sprit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God, know man knows, but the Spirit of God.
