Bible Summary. When most of us think of knowledge, we are thinking of the knowledge that man has acquired over thousands of years. The Bible tells us that the real source of all knowledge and truth comes from God. All knowledge can be divided into two categories. There is revealed knowledge that God has revealed to mankind, and then there is secret knowledge that God has not revealed to mankind. The greatest mystery that God has revealed to mankind is in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus revealed God’s salvation plan to mankind as well as made known in human form the nature of God. See below for more commentary and scriptures concerning the secret knowledge of God.
Wisdom, The Knowledge of God
Secret Knowledge is the Providence of God.
Secret knowledge is truth that God has not revealed to mankind. Organizations that profess to have secret knowledge or truth do not line up with the world of God. God is the source of all knowledge, both revealed knowledge and secret knowledge. Deuteronomy 29:29 advises us on the revealed and secret knowledge of God.
Deuteronomy 29:29, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
The Secret Knowledge, The Mystery Revealed in the Person of Jesus Christ.
God is the source of all knowledge, both revealed and secret knowledge. God is who decides what knowledge is revealed to mankind and what knowledge is kept secret. This is what happened almost 2,000 years ago when God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to reveal the greatest mystery to mankind. Romans 16:26 advises us on the great mystery of Jesus Christ.
Romans 16:26, “But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”
God, the Source of Revealed and Secret Knowledge.
For most people knowledge is usually thought of in terms of man’s knowledge, but knowledge and truth is more than what mankind knows. In reality God is the source of truth and knowledge. In God’s timing, He decides what truth to reveal to mankind and what truth not to reveal. Daniel 2:22 advises us on the knowledge of God.
Daniel 2:22, “He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.”
The Mystery of Godliness Made Clear in Jesus Christ.
When Jesus walked on this Earth He revealed to mankind the secret of God and His Godliness. Jesus came to us as God, the Son, in human form and revealed to us the godliness of His loving and righteous nature. Jesus revealed the full nature of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. 1st Timothy 3:16 advises us on the mystery of Godliness.
1st Timothy 3:16, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
