Bible Study It's A Secret. You're Not Supposed To Know . . . .

JAG ..

Apr 20, 2015
. . .You're not supposed to know things that God does not want you
to know, and God obviously does not want you to know everything.

This fact --- that there are some secrets that God does not want you
to know --- is one major reason why "without faith it is impossible to
please God."

You must exercise faith because the truth is you will, for certain, live
out your life in the dark regarding the answers to many of your
questions "for now we see through a glass darkly."

"Have faith in God." ___The Lord Jesus Mark 11:22

"It is not for you to know"__The Lord Jesus Acts 1:7

"The secret things belong to God." __ Deut. 29:29

You heard about that cat, his name was Garfield, that died from curiosity.
So just say no to feline-inquisitiveness -- not even nine lives could save
Garfield. Besides if you knew everything you'd be as smart as God. You
don't want to be as smart as God, do you.

"My cerebrum is twitching", said Henry, "and I crave to know it all."
"But", muttered Henry's wife, "nobody likes a Know-It-All."

So give it up.

Henry's cerebrum said to Henry's cerebellum, "We both are pulsating vigorously
in anticipation as we crave to come to know all secrets."
"Wait a minute", spoke up Henry, "didn't you just hear that the secret things belong
to God. What's the matter with you two.


"Why do you speak to the people in parables?", asked Jesus' disciples.
Jesus replied, "Because the knowledge of the secrets of the Kingdom Of
Heaven has been given to you, but not to them."

Why not to them? Because they were the type of people that were "ever
learning but never perceiving . . . for this people's heart has become
calloused." Matthew 13:14-15

So we, you and I, do not want to choose to be like those calloused
people -- rather we want to choose to "have faith in God" and wait
patiently until we get to Heaven to have our questions answered.

But right now there are many secrets afoot.

However here is some good news . . . .
Not everything is a secret. Everything you need to know to get Eternal Life
has been made crystal-highly-transparent-glass-clear. And when you
die and enter Heaven you can then get into learning some really cool new
stuff big time. Just think what you could do with an enhanced brain in a
new glorified body with a new cranium happily housing your new glorified
network of neurons sparking along 24/7/365. Why you'd soon be as wise
as Solomon.

Back to secrets . . .

"It is no secret what God can do. ♫ ♫
What He's done for others, He'll do for you.
With arms wide open, He'll welcome you.
It is no secret what God can do." ♫ ♫

And it is no secret that "God so loved the world that He gave His one and
only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal Life."


So we never have to experience the perish of John 3:16 for the Lord Jesus stands
at the door knocking and whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

God knows what we can understand in all truths given to us by His Holy Spirit, but the carnal mind can not perceive the things of the Spirit as it is foolishness' unto them.

1Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Psalms 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

It's why I usually state that God will let me know what I need to know and when I need to know it.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts."

Isaiah 55:8-9 NKJV

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1 Corinthians 13:12 NKJV

“Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”
Luke 12:11-12 NKJV
