Proverbs 25:2 Ever have your computer just up and die? You can’t see inside, but inside are all of the bits and pieces that make it work. Just like some parts of a computer are concealed, God conceals some matters. One day we will see all things hidden since eternity past. God has his reasons known only unto Him as to why He has chosen to reveal or conceal. The “secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those that are revealed belong to us and our descendants forever,” [Deut 29:29] What we do know is this: God has given us all the evidence we need to believe who He is and who Christ is.
In Acts 1, the disciples asked Jesus if He was going to restore the kingdom of Israel. He responded you are not permitted to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his authority. God has wisely chosen to reveal His creation, which is the revelation of His invisible attributes; his eternal power and divine nature. [Rom 1:20] Also, He has shown His Son Jesus Christ and the path to salvation. Proverbs remind us that it begins with a faith belief in our hearts. It is our belief, coupled with a confession that leads to salvation. [Rom 10:9-10]
The Bereans examined what Paul taught to see if it were so. We too should examine, search out, or investigate the matter before us. We have the inspired Word —let’s begin there.
