We want to open our Bible and discover new truths; not new as in never discovered:
but new to us - new to our mind
new to our heart - new to our spirit.
It’s not that God hasn’t revealed it all in His Logos (the written Word) and by His Ramah (the spoken Word).
It’s not that God hasn’t prepared us for receiving His truth.
It’s not that we aren’t capable of understanding all that God has for us.
It’s that we haven’t received it all.
We haven’t received all that God intends to reveal to us.
God designed His Word to quicken the spirit of man. For the lost and for the saved.
For the lost the Word reveals to them a holy God, full of love and concern for His creation.
It shows them they way, the truth and the life. It reveals the most profound truth ever thought: “That God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
God draws men and women, teens and children to Himself by revelation of Himself. You and I were drawn to God by the power of His Word.
“No man can cometh to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw Him: and I will raise him up at the last day. V45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me.” John 6:44-45
For the saved the Word reveals to us a holy God, full of love and concern for His creation.
It shows us the way, the truth and the life. It reveals us the most profound truths ever thought. God designed His Word for anyone and everyone who will believe it.
For the saved, the one to whom is given the indwelling Holy Spirit, the Word is full of easy to understand, powerful, life changing truths."
