At that same time Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit,
and he said, “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
thank you for hiding these things from those
who think themselves wise and clever,
and for revealing them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way.
“My Father has entrusted everything to me.
No one truly knows the Son except the Father,
and no one truly knows the Father except the Son,
and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.”
Then He turned to His disciples and said privately,
“Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see;
for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired
to see what you see, and have not seen it,
and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.”
Jesus claims that He is the Truth, therefore is the beginning of all things. The root source of Truth is Jesus Christ. He is the wisdom of God, the mind of God and the Logos of God. What we read in the Bible is just a glimpse of what He is. There is no book big enough to contain and tell who Jesus really is. There is no perfect book in this world and this is not to demean or down grade the Bible. The Bible is a good book because it has something to tell about our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no reason to abuse and hate the Bible. However, we don’t worship our Bibles and other religious books. Christ existed before we got the Bible published.
Our Father needs to reveal His Son to us. The Holy Spirit of Truth is teaching us about the Truth who is the Christ. He is the Bread of Life from heaven as He claimed to be the food for our thoughts and minds. Jesus Christ originated from above before He became a man. His tenure as man on earth lasted for only about thirty-three years. The man Christ Jesus is just a drop in a bucket, a short advent of God’s revelation of the Truth.
Every believer has a spiritual or mystical encounter with Christ through His Words. Where can we find His words? Are we sure that words of Jesus Christ written in the Bible are His? How do we know? Remember, the Bible is a compilation of many books written by unknown pseudo scribes. Many have reservation on the authenticity of the translation of the oral gospel to the written form. We don’t reject or accept Christ because we doubt the Bible or other religious books.
The Sheep knows His voice. The Spirit bear witness within us that the words of Jesus are spirit and life. We are childlike at this point, having a simple faith in what He said in the gospel. Our personal encounter with the living Christ is essential to our faith. Individually, we must have a fresh experience of being born into the kingdom of God. The letter kills but the Spirit gives life.
We just close our eyes and believe that what read were coming from Him. Jesus has challenged us to believe on Him and His words. We can not go wrong if we believe the Truth. Our faith is anchored on Him and we can not be moved by lies in the absent of the Truth. The facts we know now may not be true tomorrow; they changes every now and then after new discoveries but the Truth is ever constant and endures forever. Our mind is at rest for we learn from our Master and Lord. His lessons are easy and His burden is light.
We went out seeking for the hidden treasure, and found it in the person of Jesus Christ. We search the scriptures and we follow what He teaches in the gospel. Love God and our neighbors, deny ourselves and carry crosses are things we do daily. We are lost without Christ because He is our reference point to start and arrive on our desired goal. His word is a lamp and light to our path. We live by faith obeying His words of life while others live by sight.
We talk to our Father. We thank Him for revealing the hidden truth to us. Prayer is a mystical way of connecting to the supernatural. It is like entering the unknown zone, braking the thin barrier that separates heaven and earth. We shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make us free.
