Scripture:

Prov. 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

Comment:

The Word of God is always the same, but it is significant that we allow the Holy Spirit to reveal it to us. When a scripture “opens up” for us, we see things we haven’t seen before, even though we have read the scripture many times before.

God can hold back a revelation. It is not necessarily revealed to the large and established churches and preachers.

Luke 10:21
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.

What revelation was Jesus rejoicing over? What was it that the father had given to “babes”? We find the answer in Luke 10:17.

Luke 10:17
Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

God chose not to give the revelation, of our authority over the evil spirits, to “the wise and prudent“, but to the “babes”. In other words, it was not the theologians who got the understanding, but those who followed Jesus and did his will.

There is a risk that we receive from God only what the ‘large’ churches and preachers have first approved. This applies especially to teaching about spiritual warfare, and it is an explanation why there is such ignorance and delusion concerning our mission to deal with the evil spiritual world.
