Hidden Versus Revealed

1 Corinthians 2:7-8 revealed a hidden truth. It says, “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”

We know because Scripture revealed it time and time again. Jesus gave a scathing rebuke to the Pharisees. They were the teachers of the Law. John 5:39-40 says, “You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.”

John 6:36 says, “But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.” Verse 37 is great assurance for us. It should have been for them also. It says, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”

Yet, because they did not believe and go to the Lord, the truth of His word was hidden from them. His cross was the enemy’s destruction. Colossians 2:15 says, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

Here is the truth for us that highlights a condition to God’s promise. 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.”
