Have You Seen and Have You Heard 
“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. 

For the Spirit searches all the things, yes, the deep things of God."

I Corinthians 2:10

While crying out to the Lord concerning the body of the Messiah  one night, my heart became overwhelmed pondering the countless number of men and women of the past and of the present that just “want God”; those who sincerely desire Truth and the deep things of God. I mourned at the thought of the stagnant water or the “doctrine of men” (Ephesians 4:14) going forth in the earth realm, erroneous teachings that are approved by men, and not by God, that endeavor to hinder many from hearing and seeing God (Matthew 23:13; Luke 10:23-24). But in the middle of my weeping, the Spirit of the Lord spoke plainly, saying “But if they seek Me, they will find Me.” Well needless to say, my crying ceased as I began to reflect on the Word that I’d just heard from the LORD. It is written in I Corinthians 2:9:

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
  (I Corinthians 2:9 from Is. 64:4; 65:17)

Throughout many years and generations, the masses have heard the latter scripture quoted and preached an innumerable amount of times. But what is written in the next verse, I Corinthians 2:10, clarifies what the Apostle Paul is actually teaching us.  

“But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.”

See, God has revealed those things to us through and by His Spirit! Those of us sealed by the Spirit of God have the privilege of knowing Truth, the deep things of God! In my mourning, the Lord comforted me with what He had already revealed in His Word.  Jesus spoke these words in Luke 11:9 & Matthew 7:7:

“Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will opened unto you.” 

Finding and knowing the Truth of God by seeking Him is not or should not be a mystery to the Saints of God because we have the Spirit of Truth Who guides us into All Truth (John 16:13-14). Moreover, Jesus assured us in John 16:15 that all things that the Father has is His and that the Holy Spirit will declare them to us! 

Within the Body of the Messiah many are seeking after position; many seek after fame, eminence or recognition; many seek after the approval of man, and many others are seeking after wealth. And for those seeking those things…they have their reward
. But sadly, this too, is according to the Word of God.  II Timothy 4:3 says:

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers…” 

So in essence, the Spirit of the Lord confirmed in me that I need not fret over what appears to be a hindrance today. For those who seek Him, who earnestly seek Him; He will not hide from them. He will keep His promise when sayingThey Will Find Me."

So I ask: Have you seen and Have you heard?
Seek The Lord…And You Will!  

I Chronicles 28:9- If you seek Him, He will be found by you; II Chronicles 19:3- Set your heart on seeking the Lord; Amos 5:4- Seek ME and live; Jeremiah 29:13- You will seek me and find me when you seek me with All of your heart
