It takes time and work to mine for gold. Seven lamps of fire were burning… 6 Before the Throne there was a sea of glass…around the Throne, were four living creatures… Rev. Bible study must create an active dialogue in our heart with God. First, we thank God for His Throne. Second, we ask God to reveal release for a spirit of revelation about the Throne Eph. There is much happening around the Throne of God.
They peer into the mysteries of God that leave them overwhelmed and awestruck. Isaiah witnessed these burning ones.
As the power impact of the revelation of God races through their being, they bow and rise up again invigorated with the revelation of God. The fascinating God created us with a need to be fascinated. Thus, there is a craving in every human spirit to marvel and to be fascinated. When God the Holy Spirit reveals God the Son to our human spirits—our spirits resonate in spiritual pleasure.
It is the deepest and most profound pleasure available to the human race. When our spirit is touched, nothing else compares. The desire for holy fascination is placed within each one of us. The secular entertainment industry has identified this human longing and has targeted it commercially. When we are not fascinated with Him we are bored, spiritually dull, and spiritually passive. Then money, drugs, alcohol, and immorality are far more tempting.
God did not create us to grit our teeth in our efforts to say no to a lifetime of inferior pleasures.
A satisfied, fascinated believer is a spiritually strong believer. What is this strong, rich, blessed comfort? With the Lord, who is our Rock and Refuge. With the Lord, who loved us and laid down His life for us, the sheep of His pasture. With the Lord, who has called us with His sovereign, effectual grace. Through the words given in the Scripture before. Verse 15 Our Lord will first come, then the dead in Christ shall rise first. What a blessing to speak them to one another: parent to children, and children to parent, siblings to siblings, spouse to spouse, brothers and sisters in the Lord to one another!
Not separated forever! Not sorrowing as those who have no hope!
THE MYSTERY OF THE SACRED SECRET
But together forever with the Lord! Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Never move along! So are you in Christ Jesus the Lord immovable. Also behind this truth of who you are in Christ is operating a greater, more fundamental truth about this One in whom you are rooted and built up. Absolute sovereignty, divine wisdom, infinite power, boundless righteousness, endless grace and mercy, just as they are the perfection of the being of God, so they dwell in the Son of God bodily.
In His human nature they dwell. In His body they dwell, the body of Him who is the very Son of God.

That One as He was sent from heaven to reconcile you to God by His suffering and death on the cross and by His resurrection from the dead the third day. That One as He was proclaimed to you in the holy gospel, the glad tidings sent from heaven by the Son of God Himself glorified. That One in whom you believed. Beware of men. Beware of men that will tell you that you need also this or that philosophy, this or that vain deceit. You need to believe this or that.
You need to do this or that.

You need this extra beyond Christ Himself. It is of the proud vanity of man that insists on having something of self to give to God, that cannot receive everything from Him. Beware any man in deceiving you take from you the One in whom ye are stablished and built up in faith. Beware, lest any man take from you the One in whom you are rooted and grounded.
And he said unto her, for this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter. What humility of faith to argue the point! The point? The children are hungry. The children need food for their growth and nourishment.
For their needs, they sit around the table. At that table is the bread given to them by their parents. The bread is given in love to those children. Its purpose is realized when the children eat the bread, and by that bread are filled. Then what must we think when those parents should ignore their children, and give the bread that would feed their children to the dogs instead?
What parent would have their children go hungry, instead feeding the dogs? How can one argue the point? How should one argue the point? How would you and I argue? These are not answers of the humility of faith. What is the answer of the humility of faith? I am not worthy.
But Christ is the gracious, merciful Saviour. His grace is exactly for the unworthy. What is His answer to this argument of the humility of faith?
