Lesson # Matt. 10:26-27
Study Material - Matt. 10:26-27
You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
26 Fear [phobeo] them [autos] not [me] therefore [oun] : for [gar] there is [esti] nothing [oudeis] covered [kalupto] , that [hos] shall [apokalupto] not [ou] be revealed [apokalupto] ; and [kai] hid [kruptos] , that [hos] shall [ginosko] not [ou] be known [ginosko] .
27 What [hos] I tell [lego] you [humin] in [en] darkness [skotia] , that speak ye [epo] in [en] light [phos] : and [kai] what [hos] ye hear [akouo] in [eis] the ear [ous] , that preach ye [kerusso] upon [epi] the housetops [doma] . KJV-Interlinear
26 'Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 27 'What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. NAS
The world is extremely successful at illusion and deception. It can make an impressive and convincing case for sin by covering it over or disguising it with seemingly good motives and even helpful benefits. The world puts the best face on wickedness and the worst face on righteousness. Good becomes bad, and bad becomes good and even celebrated. But God has decreed that there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. The world's wickedness will be shown for what it is, and believers' righteousness will be shown for what it is. God has bound Himself to vindicate those who belong to Him.
Therefore, fear nothing that is of this world. But if there is anything to fear, then fear only that which can destroy you totally and completely, That power and authority can only come from God and God alone. They world can not destroy the total human life. It can cause pain and suffering on the body, but that is as far as it can go. To the point of death even, and all pain and suffering ends there for the believer
There are those who play games with truth. In some cultures the leadership has fooled entire populations, and even many generations have fallen to deceptive philosophies. The leadership is guilty certainly and will have special suffering awaiting them for their deceit, but the masses, if they are truly innocent, will have the truth revealed to them giving them a chance to make up their own mind. If the masses are equally guilty of promoting the false philosophy, then their guilt will become their destruction as well.
Politicians play the game, at the expense of their constituents, in order to promote their own career. Society in general will play the game of deception for various perceived social advancements. But they fool themselves. Their deceptions are upheld before those who are naive, or before those who want to believe the lie. People want to believe lies because the benefits they perceive that accompany the lies and desirable to them. They lust for the reward. People follow the words of Solomon, 'Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes.' But then judgment comes and all that perverted partying, all the irresponsible behavior, all of the failures of accountability that one owes society will be brought before Gods judgment throne. The unbelievers will fall into the lake of fire, separated from God forever, 2 Thes. 1:9. Believers will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and will nor receive their 'bonus' rewards, Rev. 1-3.
To those who become positive toward Bible doctrine, a whole sphere of enlightenment shines before them. The truth is revealed. The lie becomes obvious. The choices better defined. To the positive believer in Christ, nothing will be hidden. The best laid plans of man will crumble and their secrets will be discovered.
All that God wants us to know is revealed. There are no secrets in the spiritual life. There is no room for secrets in the spiritual life. Christianity is not a special system of fraternal orders and lodges that have secret rites and ceremonies. These have no part in Christianity, no matter how much they may try to defend their religious purposes and standards. All spiritual and moral truth that man needs to know and can know, God has already fully made known in the scriptures. Gods desire is for that truth to be proclaimed, not hidden. Christians are not the elite who defend man made secrets, but they are, or should, boldly proclaim Gods truth. Secrecy has no part in the Christian life.
What God reveals to each of us is in effect open to us but a secret from those who are not interested in Bible doctrine. All things spiritual to the unbelieving or to the negative person, are foolishness. They lack understanding, and therefore, they see truth as foolishness.
In the same light, we are not to keep what we know only to ourselves, but should proclaim it openly. We are not to hide in our Christian belief. The fear of man is a trap, Prov. 29:25. Though fear, danger and even abuse of varying kinds are constant companions of this life, we are to fear God far more than this world. The world can take nothing from us (our soul). God can take everything from us. The world can give us nothing. God can give us everything (eternal life) and far more.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
