Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo, 3rd

GOD REVEALED TO YOU!,
(You Can Only Know God Through Revelation),
📖TO THE BIBLE Hosea 4:6
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….”
Did you know that it doesn’t matter how good your knowledge of science, arts, history, or even religion is? None of that knowledge can help you know God. That’s because it takes a revelation for you to truly know Him!
Peter had one such revelation that totally transformed his life. When Jesus quizzed His disciples about who they thought He was, Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16), and Jesus made him understand he could only have known that by revelation.
This is why, when someone truly hears the Gospel, he embraces salvation. What happens in that instant is that he catches a revelation of Christ’s sacrifice for him on the cross. On the other hand, another person hears the same message and attempts to reason it out in his mind, and by so doing, stops it from getting into his heart and producing the desired result. Understand that for God’s Word to benefit you, you’ve got to receive it with spiritual understanding, and not your human reasoning.
The message of Christ’s salvation is not meant for your reasoning but for your spirit. No wonder Paul in Ephesians 3:19 prayed that you come “to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge….”
If you’re reading this devotional today and are yet to make Jesus the Lord of your life, the love of Christ can become real to you right now if you’d only receive Jesus into your heart to be born again. Turn to the “Prayer of Salvation” page at the end of the book and pray that prayer, meaning every word with all your heart.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
1 Peter 1:23
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Dear Father, I declare that my heart is a fertile ground for your Word. As your Word comes to me, I receive it with faith, meekness and gladness, thus, it sinks deep into me, producing the results of what it says, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
