The Things Revealed and the Mark of God……
Deuteronomy 29:29 (NASB) 29 “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.
The “Secret Things” are the predestined plan of God the Father which the Son is administrating now as we speak, as King and the Holy Spirit is applying to reality as He proceeds forth from the Father and the Son. Thus the Secret Things are the OUTCOME of each and every day, throughout the day and throughout time until the Return of Our King in Glory on the Day of Judgment or just, the Day. We have no part in this and are simply participants in Loving Trust of Our Almighty God and Savior.
The “Things Revealed” are the Moral Law of God or the Character of God as it is revealed in and understood by mankind in Jesus Christ. The Moral Law ONLY condemns man before Regeneration and Justification. After this, we have a LIVING SPIRIT granted us from King Jesus Christ and thus we begin to develop a Character like Jesus i.e. like God. As our character or our New Nature develops over the course of sanctification, we begin to act in accord with the Mind of Christ more and more from an inner and natural desire, just like thirst or hunger.
Matthew 5:6 (NASB) 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
In this, the Moral Law changes from it’s role as Judge in condemnation unto a source of Verification that the Child of God has a New Character from a portion of Jesus Christ’s Spiritual Life granted him, and thus he has a new ability to choose daily the Great and Glorious “Things Revealed” by Jesus Christ as the Mark of God on the forehead (Thoughts and Speech) and on the right hand (Actions).
1. The Mark of God — Deuteronomy 6:4-8 (NASB) 4 “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.
2. Jesus Christ gives Light to the “Things Revealed” for those He Saves to do NATURALLY, by the New Nature/Spirit He Gives Them — Matthew 22:34-40 (NASB) 34 But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together. 35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And He said to him, ” ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ 38 “This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ 40 “On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
