Revelation and illumination...
The human mind is both finite and fallen, and will neither
understand nor believe without the gracious work of the
Holy Spirit. It is not only necessary that he should have
given an objective revelation. We need his subjective
illumination too. If I were to take a blindfold man to the
ceremony of unveiling of some stone tablet, two processes
would be necessary before he could read the inscription.
First, the tablet must be unveiled (and of course
'revelation' means unveiling). Second, the bandage must be
taken from his eyes. Similarly, it is not enough that God
through his Spirit has unveiled the truth in Christ. The
veil must be removed from our eyes as well.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
