It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
(Proverbs 25:2 (NIV))
I bet that you are rather tired of all of the talk recently about the blood moons, the Shemitah, and many others things that are in the hearts and minds of the members of the Body of Christ. It seems that everyone is talking about these things. It seems that there is more talk than there is actual movement of prophecy, or so it would appear.
We are told that no man knows the hour or the day, but we can know the season.
I am sure that you have heard people say this when they are confronted with things such as the Rapture, the tribulation and anything else related to prophesy. Perhaps God is actually telling us to not get so caught up in the exact hour or day, but to study His Word so that you can recognize the season. Perhaps God is telling us to spend time with Him in His Word so that we will get to know Him better and as a result, we will know His heart and His mind. Uncovering these are the greatest treasures of all, and those who study prophesy are simply trying to know our God and Father on a more personal level. They are seeking out the matters that God has concealed. It is these very same matters that God has concealed that He is using to draw out those who truly seek Him.
God understands the concept of mystery.
Think about when you were dating. Did you learn everything that there was to know about the person all at once? For those who are married, I would bet that you are still learning things about your spouse. It keeps you attention, and God know that a little mystery will draw the hungry closer. Perhaps it is this aspect that God uses to see who truly is seeking after His heart.
Prophesy is a major portion of God’s Word. God has placed it there for our study. He has placed it there for us to search it out.
Are you searching out the mysteries contained within God’s Word?
