REVELATION OF GOD

| By PKD Lee |


Isaiah 6:1 ”In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.“

Isaiah saw a vision of God which made him recognize his sinfulness and need for redemption. How do we get a revelation in the same manner, which would drive us to a total commitment to Yahweh and enable us to respond to His call?


For most members of the church, the only revelation we have is from the Bible, and often we are taught not to be carried away by revelations from outside the Bible. So how do I experience God in a powerful manner in my life?


We cannot force God, or manipulate God to reveal Himself, so how do I do it? I like the concept of education in laboratories. One can learn the theory well, but that does not give us a comprehension of the subject till we have been in the laboratory and seen it with our eyes, and not just with our mind. Where is the laboratory where I can experience God?


That laboratory is life. When I live my life by the principles of the Bible, I test them, and two things happen. When I say principles, I do not mean rules, but the principles on which the rules are laid. The basic principle is to love people, irrespective of what they do to us. When I do this, I begin to experience God in my life in two ways.

One is seeing how living by the principles leads to a happier life and things actually work for our good. This confirms our faith in God and His principles.

The second is that our mind begins to align with God, as it says in Rom 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”


When my mind is aligned with God, I begin to see the Holy Spirit working in my life, and I start experiencing God in my life. To ‘know’ in the Old Testament Hebrew was to know by experience, and that is what happens to us.

When we see God acting in our lives by many different ways, through the Holy Spirit, we are astounded at the love of God who works with a sinner like me. We respond to God with a total commitment of our life to God.
