Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 19 Because what may be known of God is revealed in them; for God has shown it to them.3 [Revelations come not from reading about God, nor from hearing someone talk about God, for God is only known by revelation in your heart, where you hear him and see His teachings about sin, righteousness, and Himself.

From the Word of the Lord within: "Turn inward to discover the mysteries."

George Fox wrote: "The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil,"]

3 that which may be known of God is revealed in them; for God has shown it to them. What is to be known of God, is revealed by God within a man's heart. Mark! Not from reading a book. Not from listening to a preacher speaking without words supplied by the Holy Spirit, as he speaks. A natural man cannot believe or understand the mysteries of God. It is impossible for a natural man to become a spiritual man by reading, Bible study, seminary training, Bible college, praying for understanding, or listening to other natural men talk; such only increases his fleshly knowledge, which must die to be replaced by wisdom from above. A natural man is only changed into a spiritual man by the teachings and changing grace of the Spirit of God, through revelation and power. The natural man must be taught by revelation in that man's heart in the power of the Holy Spirit; words must be heard, and/or visions must be seen, with clear understanding received in a man's heart.
