Hungering for the Hidden Knowledge

Thought: To explore our heart’s desire to search for the deeper things
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
The foul one (satan) knew from the beginning as to where to attack mankind from and that was a lust for knowledge. While I feel that God is pleased when His children come to Him for revelations, I also feel that we, (due to how we initially fell), need to be very, very careful of this inborn desire to seek for the deeper hidden things of our God & King. Personally I believe that He is well pleased to freely give it to those who seek Him and not them.
While those who seek them may be given them, I believe that the Loving Heavenly Father will grant them BUT to the demise of those asking just as He did for Israel when they insisted on having an earthly king rather than God; 1Sa 8:6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. 1Sa 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. For God not only has His ‘perfect’ will which is after His heart, but also an ‘acceptable’ will which is after our own rather than His; Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. God is a gentleman who will go ahead and give to His children that persistently asks of Him BUT, when we put our focus on the ‘things’ of God rather than God Himself, when He does so, it will be to the leanness of our own soul.
I personally believe that God has given Daniel, and John great revelations as noted in His Word NOT because they were seeking them, but because they were seeking Him! And, when I learn of those in this day and time eagerly and sincerely asking for revelations as to time and dates, I ask myself, why? And it seems to me to originate from that original desire to ‘know’.
So, this ‘penning’ I feel is for those who have an incredible desire to know things from His Word that may be hidden with the hope that they FIRST put loving and desiring Him above ALL knowledge just as His Word tells us in; 1Co 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You desire to give to Your kids what they ask for, may our heart’s desire be first and foremost to Love you in Christ with all of our hearts, souls, minds and strengths for it’s in the Infinite, Glorious Name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
