Job 11:7-8 (MSG) Do you think you can explain the mystery of God? Do you think you can diagram God Almighty? God is far higher than you can imagine, far deeper than you can comprehend,
If we knew everything about God now….We would see Him as regular and become too familiar with Him. But because of His uniqueness…He is a mystery to us. God has chosen to give us a certain amount of information about Himself and after that…no more whatsoever. Whatever the bible says, whatever this earth reveals and whatever the Holy Spirit confirms… is it!
God is soooooo much more and this is the part I meditate on and respect. I respect His privacy about Himself and the entire universe. This type of privacy is for our benefit because of God’s holiness and physical makeup. We would be consumed if He didn’t keep His essence from us.
Back up in your mind to before the creation of the earth…what was God doing? A mystery? If we knew a lot about Him it just would not be the same. The mystery somehow increases our interest and curiosity in Him. It makes His Majesty and Gloriousness have a deeper impression in my mind. I know His power is unexplainable and this draws me to Him with such awe. I know that I’m dealing with someone who is so supernatural that there are no human words to even really describe Him. I’m drawn to search the scripture to try to unravel this mystery or at least try to get to the end of my earthly knowledge of who He is.
I have been searching to know Him deeper and deeper most of my life. I just can’t get enough of Him so I keep searching. Then He gives me gifts of feeling His Shekinah Glory…but that just makes me hunger for more of Him.
9) but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” 10) For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)
There are times when I see Him. Yes I know…no one sees God and live…but there are other ways to see people without looking. Read this blog I wrote on the subject: https://godspeaks-i-listen.com/2011/11/03/how-to-see-the-face-of-god%e2%80%a6my-personal-experience/
Not knowing everything about God is an advantage. #1… we would be scared to death of Him because we would know the His fullness of His holiness and #2….we would get use to Him and He would not be as special to us. Look at how people have become too familiar with Him now.
I am personally obsessed with the Holiness of God and have written many blogs on the subject because:
I feel that’s how I will Know God more.
That will help me to know who I should be in Him.
It reveals how much I needed the blood of Jesus to save me from eternal death and separation from God forever.
I know I need the Holy Spirit to help me to make me like Jesus Christ and live a holy life.
Now Jesus was a mystery also….but that mystery has been revealed to us. Colossians 2:2–3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
God’s privacy about His whole existence is fascinating to me because I can only imagine about His past, and future eternal existence. God is a spirit and is unlike anyone or anything we have ever known. He is the creator of everything…but yet He humbled Himself to come down here to make sure we had a way back to Him physically and spiritually. We came from Him and we will go back to Him. Heaven is our home.
So for right now…I will spend time in His presence though prayer and experience the power of the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me. I will scour the scriptures to expose all available information about Him so I can be in awe of His mysteriousness.
Even through His Awesome power, Holiness and uniqueness….He has made a way to connect with us until we finally see Him….face to face!
