The Glory of God and the Honor of Kings

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.”  (Proverbs 25:2)

The Bible teaches us,

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Rom. 10:17)

And again, in another place, the Bible declares,

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Heb. 11:6)

It is impossible to please God without faith. Faith is the vehicle by which we receive from the Lord.

When we receive the word of God, whether it be by preaching or by reading, the Holy Spirit takes that word and gives us spiritual ears to hear.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Rev. 2:29)

Once we begin to hear in our heart the understanding that the Holy Spirit gives, the faith that is resident in our heart through the Holy Spirit comes alive and saturates our being with the ability to believe God.

It does not matter what our senses perceive as reality or what we rationalize. We believe God over all, in all, and through it all.

This miraculous ability is not something that we have to go and find. It is already in us because of the state of salvation that God has placed us in through Jesus Christ. It is in us because God’s Kingdom is in us.

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21)

The more we discover about Christ and His Kingdom that is contained in the Holy Scriptures, then the more we can realize that these same aspects are already spiritually in us because of our salvation.

Whether it be Christ in us as the Redeemer, or the Savior, or the Rock that brings forth the water, the honey, the oil, and the fire; it is still Christ already in us by faith ready to be revealed in us by the revelation and power of the Holy Ghost.

“Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;” (Col. 1:25)

“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:” (Col. 1:26)

“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” (Col. 1:27)

“Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:” (Col. 1:28)

“Whereunto I also labor, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.” (Col. 1:29)

The Bible says that it is the glory of God to conceal a matter but it is the honor of kings to search it out.

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” (Prov. 25:2)

The Bible says that we shall rule as kings with Christ.

“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (Rev. 1:6)

It is our responsibility and duty to search out the hidden mysteries of God so that they can be revealed in us for the glory of God and His Kingdom.

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” (Dan. 11:32)
