I’ve been to churches where the congregation attendance shoots up when a prophet is visiting. Usually, at the end of the sermon, the speaker gives an altar call for people to come up for a personal word from the Lord. Many people love to hear these “secret” truths from God.
Additionally, some speakers also give seminars on the end times including the recent Blood Moon event. Again, many flock to hear them much for its originality and “secret” knowledge.
Instead of rushing to obtain the “secret” things of the Lord, many neglect the “revealed” things of the Lord. Moses tells the people about the blessings and curses of obeying the Law. After that he adds:
The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children for ever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
Rather than focusing on discovering the “secret” things, Moses tells them that the “revealed” things belong to them. What are the revealed things for? The words of the Law reveals Israel’s guiding path.
Similarly, the Bible is the revealed truth for us. This is the question to ask: Are we following the commands revealed in the Bible? Many seek to know the deep secrets of God but neglect the explicit commands already given. Moses adds that some things can never be known. These “secrets” belong to the Lord. Some mysteries are better left alone and ascribed as “Only God Knows”. God in his wisdom chose what to reveal to us. Obeying that is enough. Though it is not wrong to seek more knowledge, don’t be distracted from the given teachings.
