Entering Into God’s Nature

Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.”

Genesis 1:26 says that we are all made in God’s image. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”

In A. W. Tozer’s book, “Knowledge Of The Holy” he wrote that there are attributes of God that are not known to us. Romans 11:33 says, “Oh, the depths of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!”

Yet He reveals Himself to His children who love Him and keep His word. John 14:21 says, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

He makes Himself known to us through our trials. Manifest, in the Greek, is two words “in” and “to cause to shine.” Defining words are: to appear, come to view, reveal, exhibit, make visible, present oneself to the sight of another, to declare, to make known.

1 Corinthians 2:9 says that our eyes have not seen, our ears have not heard, nor has our heart comprehended the things God has prepared for those who love Him. Verse 10 Amplified says “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit…”

Paul went on to explain what the Holy Spirit does for us. “…the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound  and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”

The Lord reveals His hidden attributes through our intimate communion with Him. His whispered words penetrate our heart. We gaze upon Him with unveiled faces. We behold Him as He beholds us.

Psalm 25:14 Amplified says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its (deep, inner) meaning.”

It is communing with Him through His word that we learn about His unsearchable attributes. Think of a few ways He revealed Himself through His laws to His children Israel. Through David’s Psalm 19 we read various ways His word works in us.

Verse 7 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” Verses 8 through 11 states, they are right, pure, enlighten the eyes, true, righteous, and give us warning.

Our progressive sanctification is a journey into the heart of God. He meets us where we are, and leads us deeper in our communion with Him. He reveals Himself through ways we have not experienced Him before. Let nothing on this earth rival your intimate communion.
