God Conceals Things Prov 25:2 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
Prov 25:2 says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing.” Indeed, God conceals things. God conceals:
Himself – Jn 1:18; Jer 23:24 – God fills the universe and yet he cannot be seen – nevertheless he has revealed himself in his words if you will believe him.
The True Light – Gen 1:3; Jn 1:9 – there is a light that outshines the sun that was here before the sun – you cannot see it, though Paul got a glimpse of it [Acts 9:3] – nevertheless it is revealed in God’s words if you will believe them.
Heaven – Rev 4:1-2; Gen 1:7; Ps 148:4; Is 66:1 – heaven is outside of outer space and even the space ships and telescopes of the world cannot see it – nevertheless it is revealed in God’s words if you will believe them.
New Jerusalem – Gal 4:26; Rev 21:10-27 – New Jerusalem is in heaven and is thoroughly described in the Bible if you will believe what it says – however, you won’t see it until you get there if you are going.
Leviathan – Job 41:1; Is 27:1 – this is the physical body of the devil – the devil is a spiritual being but he is also a dragon and a serpent – you cannot see him but he is real – the Bible tells you all about him.
Hell – Lk 16:19-31 – hell is as real as the sun but it has been concealed so that you cannot see it – nevertheless it is revealed in God’s words if you will believe them.
Principalities and Powers – also known as the host of heaven – Eph 6:12; 2 Ki 23:5; 2 Chr 18:18; Dan 10:13, 20; Rev 12:7 – up in the universe there are princes and angels – they war and they influence things on earth but they are concealed so that you cannot see them – nevertheless they are revealed in God’s words if you will believe them.
The foundations of the earth – Job 38:4-6; Ps 104:5 – you get the idea that the earth is just floating in outer space – but the Bible says that it was created with foundations – do you have any idea where they are?
The temple of God – that is the body of Christ – Eph 2:19-22; Eph 4:16; 1 Cor 3:16 – the Lord has been building a temple with the lively stones of every soul that has gotten saved since his death, burial and resurrection – but you cannot see it – that’s because God has not revealed it – nevertheless it is revealed in God’s words if you will believe them.
Conclusion: Deut 29:29 – the Lord has revealed these things to us in his words – he told us to live by faith and not by sight – Heb 11:1 – these things are real – he doesn’t let you see them because you wouldn’t be able to stand the sight of them – they would either blind you or scare you so badly that you couldn’t survive – know for sure that the temple is real and if you are not in it you need to be – trust Christ and what he said.
