Have the eyes of your understanding been opened? Have you recognized Jesus as Lord and Savior?
The day I was Saved, my understanding was opened. I knew, Jesus was real.
Suddenly the weight of sin, was lifted and I was walking on air. I understood my need for Jesus.
Many Christians have arrived at this place and rejoiced. They know they are forgiven, and they are fat, dumb, happy and satisfied, to reside there.
They do not “hunger and thirst for righteousness.”
They are thankful, they attend church, they do their best to live right, it could be, they don’t smoke, drink or cuss, (or run with those that do).
Yet they do not understand, there can be more. So, they do not expect more.
The Lord has included things in the Bible to wake up our curiosity. Deliberately hidden, in plain sight. Available for all to who seek Him to find.
Luke: 24. 45.
“Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures:
As Christians, we should have opened eyes. Some of the Revelations we received will just be interesting.
Why else would the Prayer of Jabez be hidden in the midst of who begat who, untill we are almost blind to the Word?
1 Chronicles: 4:9-10
“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”
I never saw it until a fellow Bible Student, (Johnny Rushing), pointed it out. Mr Wilkerson made a name for himself, publishing a book. “The Prayer of Jabez.”
It is a message to those who seek Him, the Lord is our Shepherd, He will supply all our needs. We must be more honourable then the world, set apart Sanctified.
That is probably the most famous of the verses the Lord has hid in plain sight, for whosoever will seek them.
Our Pastor, Jim Burns has pointed out these scriptures, I never put the two together till it was revealed.
Cleophas’s wife was as at the cross, with the other Mary’s. Later Cleopas and an other Disciple, are joined on their walk home to Emmaus.
Was the second person Cleophas’s wife?
Almost certainly. (Cleophas. (John 19:25) at cross
Cleopas. (Luke 24:18) on road to Emmaus.
Different spelling a problem ?
Read more of my stuff… lol… (never spell a word the same way twice). Sorry, different authors, written at different times.
Our old Pastor David Jones, brought out the truth that we are not made in the image of God.
Adam was, but:
Gen 1. God created man in his own image,
Gen 5. Adam, begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image;
Original sin was in the copies.
The one that changed my life is in Exodus 3:4.
“the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him”
Moses saw a burning bush… the Lord, (the Law Giver), saw, and God, (Grace, Mercy, Salvation, (Jesus)), called to him.
Moses, the man who knew the Trinity better than anyone else, recognized and portrayed them for those who would see.
If we read the first five books carefully, we can see, consider, understand and believe the oneness and the differences between the Lord and God.
Throughout the Old Testament, we find Warriors led by the Lord and Prophets having more interaction with God. (Read Jesus in the Old Testament).
If you study you may find when Christ became the only begotten Son….
Are there any hidden Scriptures you have found?
Luther discovered grace instead of works… and changed the course of history.
That is why we are called to “Study to shew ourselves approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, Rightly dividing the Word of Truth.”
2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV)
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”
Are our hearts perfect toward Him? He wants us to know His will, His Truth, His Promises.
Lord, open our eyes, ears and our hearts to You. Amen
