How does God reveal Himself to man?
Man perceives the world around him through his eyes, ears, and mind.
Man sees the world around him, yet the Scripture tells us that since the beginning of the world our eye hath not seen certain things. We have not seen the spiritual things that God has for us.
Man hears the world around him, yet the Scripture tells us that since the beginning of the world our ear hath not heard certain things. We have not heard the spiritual things that God has for us.
Man's mind is limited by what he can conceive of, prove by experimentation, or hypothesize about, yet the Scripture tells us that since the beginning of the world that our heart has not solved certain things. We have not solved the mysteries of the spiritual things that God has for us.
Therefore, God uses the presence of the Holy Spirit within the heart of the believer to reveal Himself. Listen to the attached podcast and rejoice as Paul describes how God reveals Himself to man.

What do you think of when someone tells you about the Cross at Calvary, what do you see?
Do you see the shame and disgrace of a so-called King of the Jews, who could not even save Himself, let alone anyone else? Unfortunately, this is the view that most of society has of the Cross that Jesus died on.
Yet man's view of the Cross is incomplete, and it is because of this, that man, by his own cleverness, cannot understand the way of the Cross, or the why of the Cross.
It is only when God completes man's view of the Cross that man finds God. Without God's revelation of Himself, man would never discover the almighty Creator of the Universe.
It is only through the revelation of Holy Spirit that man begins to see the grace of God, and the purpose of God in the gospel message of the Cross.
Listen and rejoice as Paul describes the greatness of God and how God is revealed to man.

Jesus tells believers two things about persecution. The first is that you will be persecuted and hated by an unbelieving world. The second is that Christ will provide you victory over that persecution and hatred.
In this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 4:7-12, Paul tells us the secret of living a victorious Christian life. Listen and rejoice as you discover the meaning, and the power, of God working through, and in, you to make you victorious.

Where can you find real truth?
What are the absolute truths about right and wrong, good and evil?
The educational system and the liberal media would tell you that they are anything you want them to be, that there are no absolute truths about right and wrong. But they are deceiving you. People have been searching for the answers to these questions since the beginning of time.
They have tried atheism. Atheism teaches that all of this marvelous creation was just an accident, a random chance event. There is no truth to be found in atheism.
They have tried philosophy. Philosophy can teach you more and more about nothing, but there is no real truth to be found in philosophy.
They have tried false religions. Satan absolutely loves false religion. He is the master at making people believe just about anything you can imagine. He would tell you that salvation can be found in ritual, ceremony, good works, and membership in a church. Yet, there is no truth to be found in false religion.
So where can you turn to find truths in a dark and blinded world?
In the light that is Jesus Christ. He alone has the words of eternal life, the truth about right and wrong, love and grace, mercy and forgiveness.
Listen and rejoice as Paul describes how Satan has blinded the world to the light that is Jesus Christ in this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 4:3-6.
