Revelational Insight

Jesus promised that to those who kept His word, He would personally reveal Himself to them. How does He do that today? The Holy Spirit illuminates His word to our hearts. 1 Corinthians 2:10 Amplified says, “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for 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).”

Think back a moment to Paul’s prayer for the folks in the Ephesus church. In Ephesians 1:18 he prayed that, “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.” 

The Greek word for know is to remember and appreciate. This is achieved as we ‘have His commandments and keep them.’ We exhibit our appreciation by rehearsing His word back to Him. He loves to hear His words from our lips.

Do you remember the parable of the hidden talent? Matthew 25:29 says, “for to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even, what he has will be taken away.” In verse 30 he was called unprofitable.

God has hidden truths in His word. Part of our progressive sanctification is to mine them from Scripture. Psalm 25:14 Amplified revealed the power of intimate communion with the Lord. It says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him,, and He will show them its ((deep, inner) meaning.”
