REVEALED GOD

You are the God who works wonders; You revealed Your strength among the peoples. Psalms 77:14

The Lord has made His victory known; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. Psalms 98:2

There was once a blind man who lived in a remote place in Tanzania. He had managed his life well on his own even going from place to place without being assisted. One day he was crossing the road and heard the sound of a big vehicle coming so he moved across the road but on reaching across he immediately thought of turning back may be thinking he is in the middle of the road while he was actually stepping on to the road just in time for the bus to knock him dead. That incident saddened me much, because he was safe yet was not aware instead stepped onto danger so severe.

Christians are not like that blind man, in fact humanity did not fall because they had no knowledge of God and his will so humanity even after the fall we have not been left to find our way back to God and to find salvation. We had all we needed to know then and have all we need to know to be saved now. We have at our disposal all assistance necessary for our salvation. Nothing we need for salvation is concealed or barred from us in any way.

“Searching the scriptures” is a common term that may seem to suggest that there are hidden treasures in the word of God, that is true only in a sense that we have not widely red them but not because the truth is hidden. The term only implies making efforts to read and study the scripture in order to understand what God is telling us in his word. We should not waste time trying to seek for the hidden things, they are not for us. Why would we been more interested in things not reveled while we have not understood those that are revealed?

The purpose of God’s revelation to humanity is their salvation. The revelation is for all times and generations till the plan of salvation has been fulfilled. Deuteronomy 29:29 “The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law.” God is not hiding anything except that hisJesus
