When you pray in the secret place, pray “OUR” Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly. He knows what we need before we ask. Heaven comes down and glory fills “OUR” soul. In the secret place we are named among His ‘BE’loved “Christ-ones” in Heaven as here in these earthly costumes.
The Message that points to Christ on the Cross seems like sheer silliness to those hellbent on destruction, but for those on the way of salvation it makes perfect sense. This is the way God works, and most powerfully as it turns out. It’s written, I’ll turn conventional wisdom on its head, I’ll expose so-called experts as crackpots. So where can you find someone truly wise, truly educated, truly intelligent in this day and age? Hasn’t God exposed it all as pretentious nonsense? Since the world in all its fancy wisdom never had a clue when it came to knowing God, God in his wisdom took delight in using what the world considered dumb—preaching, of all things!—to bring those who trust him into the way of salvation.
The mask is off. You can’t keep your true self hidden forever; before long you’ll be exposed. You can’t hide behind a religious mask forever; sooner or later the mask will slip and your true face will be known. You can’t whisper one thing in private and preach the opposite in public; the day’s coming when those whispers will be repeated all over town.
The blame and shame game only goes so far, their persecution has the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message actually prospers. To “BE” found out because the Messiah will pique their curiosity, and now they’ve learned all about him; not only that, but most of the followers of Jesus have become far more sure of themselves in the faith than ever, speaking out fearlessly about God, about “OUR” Lord and Master.
If we are as forgiving with others as the Master is with us, “OUR” Heavenly Father forgives us “OUR” sin. If not then we are still in “OUR” sins most miserable creatures on earth. But, if we confess “OUR” sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us “OUR” sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. And if any man sin, we have a righteous One with “OUR” Father pleading in “OUR” behalf, even paying for what we deserve: and not “OUR”s only but for the sins of the whole world.
