- Deuteronomy 29:29

The Revealed Information is For Us, The Secret Information is For the Lord    

The book of Deuteronomy is a collection of the teaching of Moses and what he reviewed with the people before they entered the Promised Land. During the forty years in the wilderness Moses had taught the people all that the Lord revealed to him. This revelation included information, knowledge, promises, wisdom, prophecy, commands and consequences of the people’s actions. This teaching is referred to by Moses as “things revealed.” These “things,” or this information and teaching, had been given to that wilderness generation and was for their children to use as a guide, as encouragement, as information, or however these revealed “things” could be applied to their lives. These “things revealed” were for Israel to use “forever.” In these revealed words everything Israel would need in order to follow God forever had been given to them.

But, there would have been some questions and “what if” scenarios presented to Moses. Even after forty years of teaching and an extensive review in the Deuteronomy “seminar” on the east banks of the Jordan, there were still some gaps or apparent conflicts or inconclusive illustrations. Questions about Israel’s future must have been asked. For example, “How long before the nation disobeys and loses the Promised Land?” Or, “When do we set up the king Moses spoke about?” And, “Who is this prophet that will be like Moses and when will he come?” “How long before all the nations see the greatness of the Lord through Israel?

These questions and Moses statement would be similar to the way Jesus ended his teaching to the disciples on the Mount of Olives in Acts chapter one. Jesus had taught the disciples for three years and reviewed his teaching with them after the resurrection for forty days. And, when he is done teaching and reviewing, they still had questions about the unknown:

“Then they gathered around him and asked him, Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?’ ” – Acts 1:6

To which Jesus replied:

“It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.”
– Acts 1:7

Moses ended his teaching in a similar way when he says:

                “…the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever.”


                “The secret things belong to the Lord our God.”

God has revealed enough for us to do what we are called to do, if we will attend to the teaching and the work. But, there is much we do not know and cannot understand (Isaiah 55:8-9). So, we know what has been revealed, and we “live by faith, not by sight” concerning the other areas. The secret things belong to God, but our concern is to “follow all the words of the words of this Law” that HAS BEEN revealed.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“To be skeptical of the resultant text of the new Testament books its to allow all of classical antiquity to slip into obscurity, for no documents of the ancient period are as well attested bibliographically as the New Testament.”
– John Warwick Montgomery

Something to Ponder??

Christianity Has a Unique Account of Origins

Christianity describes the origin of the universe as a special creation by an eternal, omnipotent, personal God.

In comparison, other religions are weak when discussing the topic of origins. No other religion goes back to the absolute beginning before anything existed. All other religions merely discuss the reforming of pre-existent material.

Babylonian religions began with a primeval chaotic mixture of three waters.
Egyptian religion assumes an initial watery chaos from which everything evolved.
Greek mythology describes a chaos of water at the beginning.
Roman writers describe a beginning from a universal, blind interplay of atoms.
Secular humanism supports a sophisticated process of evolution of pre-existing material.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Choregeo (Gr) – Supply (Eng) – choregeo is a Greek word that means “to lead a stage chorus or dance.” Choregeo is made up of two Greek words choros, “chorus,” and hegeomai, “to lead.” Eventually the Greek word choregeo, “the leader of the chorus,” began to refer to the person who would pay for the expense of the entire stage show, or the chorus/dance show. In New Testament Greek times the word had come to mean “sponsor,” “supply,” “patron,” or “subsidize.” This word choregeo is used in 2 Corinthians 9:10 where Paul says that God is our choregeo, or the patron, the sponsor, the financial backer of our service for him and our life before him.


Refuting Higher Criticism’s Claims Against the Old Testament

Here is Example #3:

CRITIC: The miracle stories of Genesis, Exodus,  Kings, Jonah, etc. were derived from  ancient myths copied into the Bible. The Old Testament is a historical narrative.
RESPONSE: The miracles are part of recorded history. A bias against miracles is NOT a sign of intellect or intelligence, but rather a presupposition against God. If God exists, then miracles are not only possible, they are probable.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Sometimes things don't work out as planned, but that doesn't mean God's wisdom will not be accomplished. Even if we fail, God, in his wisdom, can still accomplish his plan.
I will continue to follow God and watch God continue to work.
  "The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
    Though it cost all you have, get understanding."
- Proverbs 4:7

Robinson's Arch, Jerusalem Nehemiah's Wall in Jerusalem 445 BC

The altar with the famous fish and loaves mosaic at Tabgha in the Heptagegon Church in front of the altar over the rock where supposedly Jesus multiplied the fish and loaes. There is no archaeological evidence for this, but it is the traditional place in this ancient church. Traditionally it is at this location on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee that Jesus ate his post-resurrection breakfast with the disciples and spoke to Peter about his calling and his future (John 21).

Some of the largest ashlars are found in the southwest
corner of the Temple Mount wall. These stones weigh
as much as 80 tons and are about 40 feet long,
8 feet wide and 3.5 feet tall. As seen in this photo, the workers used what is called header and stretcher construction where the stones are laid west and south in an alternating pattern. Because of the great size of the stones and this style of interlocking construction, all the corners of Herod’s Temple have been preserved to a great height – the Romans were unable to move them. This southwest corner has been preserved to the height of twelve Herodian courses of original ashlars; eight are visible here and the other four courses can be seen in photos above. Notice the edge of Robinson’s Arch on the left side of the photo. (Details concerning Herodian Ashlar blocks here.) (click on image for larger size)
