"Who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ" (1 Corinthians 2:16)
When we see God with the eyes of our hearts, God is fulfilling His purpose to appear to us. To those who ask how this can be, I answer that He can appear to us because we are made in God's image.
In the Old Testament, the writer of the Proverbs taught that true spiritual knowledge is the result of a visitation of heavenly wisdom. It is a kind of baptism of the Spirit of Truth that comes to God-fearing men. This wisdom always is associated with righteousness and humility. It is never found apart from godliness and true holiness of life.
We need to learn and to declare again the mystery of wisdom from above. Truth consists not merely in correct doctrine but in correct doctrine to which is added the inward enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.
Truth, to be understood, must be lived; Bible doctrine is wholly ineffective until it has been digested and assimilated by the total life.
