He Reveals The Hidden Things
Daniel knew of the wisdom that only resides with God, and He alone is the one who reveals secret’s as he was shown in a dream the interpretation of the Kings dream. (Daniel 2:19-23). Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.
Jesus spoke openly to all people and held nothing back from teaching what His Fathers will was for the people, even though a lot of times they did not want to accept it. (John 18:19-21). The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
There is nothing upon earth that is kept from God and even if we think we will secretly serve another God He knows and sees everything and will search it out as He knows all secret’s of the heart! (Psalm 44:20-21). If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god; Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
When we pray we are told that our Father that is in secret will hear us openly when we go to a private place and pray, as hypocrites love to be seen for everything they do in the open for all to see. (Matthew 6:5-8). And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
