That their hearts may be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, and of the father and of Christ, in whom are hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 2:3
It is a pain in the heart of God that his children; Christians know little or nothing about our rights and other belongings as his children, despite all He has done for us. Some of us will never even be able to say much about his identity as our father. We live as though we are fatherless. We live as if we have an incapable father.
If God has given us all that we need to survive and live in fullness, why do we live like orphans?
Our father, though a mysterious God, has made provisions for revelations for His children. He never wants to keep us in the dark about His identity, His personality, His attributes and even His doings, so He has given us the Holy Bible. The bible is God’s Holy word, written by several messengers under the inspiration of His Spirit: the Holy Spirit. The bible is a book of revelation about God.
Psalm 119:130. The entrance of your words, give light and understanding unto the simple.
God longs to reveal Himself unto us more and more. He will not want to be seen as a mysterious God by his kids. What kind of a father will take joy in that?
Light as spoken of in Psalm 119:130, means direction. It means revelation.
When light shows, it reveals what was formerly in the dark. The dwellers of such a domain have an understanding of what they live or stay with. “For the light makes everything visible… “(Ephesians 5:14a)
That is what the word of God does. That is the essence of the bible. It gives light and understanding. It brings direction, revelations about the mystery of God. Through it, God reveals himself to us.
Paul says God wants you to really know Christ, in whom all treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hid.
The same Christ is spoken of in John chapter one, he is referred to as the word.
In essence, God is saying, in his word (Jesus), all treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hid, including every material you need about God Himself. All that you’ll ever need are located in God’s word. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The word was God Himself. The more you know the word, the more you know God.
The articles on this blog are based only on the bible; God’s holy word.
And pray for me too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain GOD’S MYSTERIOUS PLAN that the good news is for the Jews and the Gentiles alike… Ephesians 6:19
WELCOME! THIS YEAR WE WILL STRIVE TO KNOW GOD BETTER.
