To Search Out A Matter

So often when Christians attempt to be the mouthpiece of God, they fail miserably when they don't point people to Jesus Himself, in the Logos, the Word of God. I have always said that God (the Holy Spirit) teaches us the way we understand, individually. God knows our frame of reference, intimately. He knows our personal experiences, the way we think and the worldview we each have, and each one is different. That is why it is so important for us each to have a RELATIONSHIP with Christ!!!! I have posted on this topic several times in the past few days. RELATIONSHIP is the KEY!!! I can quote scripture all day long and if I fail to point you in the direction of God Himself, I have failed miserably because the Truth of His word does not apply to anyone who does not believe in whole or in part. Likewise Christians are persecuted with the same scripture and principles they claim to live by because of this.

As we confirm truths for our own individual lives, God imparts to us a greater confidence in His Word, His ways and His teachings, in effect the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But we must search the matter out for ourselves, because it is God/The Holy Spirit, He is the only One who can teach us the way we can individually understand. As we seek understanding and truth, diligently seeking His counsel - He reveals Himself to us, and imparts that understanding - and that is when we are transformed.

Do not think for a second, that you or anyone else can have a relationship with God through someone else, through a book, a post on facebook, or anywhere else. You must seek God for yourself.

Jesus spoke in parables so that He could conceal spiritual truth:
"And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand." (Luke 8:9-10)
He would then reveal that hidden truth to His disciples:
"But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples." (Mark 4:34)
This is the manner by which God presents His Word to the world:
"Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old" (Psalm 78:1-2)
And He reveals hidden truth to His people:
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
He does this by opening their understanding as they study His Word:
"Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures" (Luke 24:45)

This is why we must prayerfully search a matter out:
"It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2)

(The believers are a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) and they are kings in that they are joint heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17) and reign with Him (Revelation 20:4-6).)
