The curtain is now open
1 John 5:20 -
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
Yesterday we received the message how God is surrounded by good plans for us and how the Heavens are a curtain that does not let people know Him. In today's message the Lord is telling us that things have changed. In today's message the Lord God has changed in His master plan.
The word translated as 'understanding', takes away a great deal of understanding of the scripture. Understanding is mostly for the result of the process of wisdom working on knowledge. The word used here is not more of the result but the engine that does this process. The more correct translation would be 'mind'. And the word translated as 'true' comes from the root meaning 'not hidden'.
When we are baptized in Jesus the Son of God and in His Spirit we receive the mind to know Jesus Christ and who we are in Him. This mind also has the capacity to reveals to us God the Father and what it means to have eternal life.
Now that we have this machine let us put the input which is the Word of God and start the process which is meditating on the Word and we are sure to get the result - understanding.

We thank and receive in Jesus' Name, Amen.
