It is noted in the introduction of this website that, if we are to understand The Truth GOD has revealed to us, then it is IMPORTANT: that we receive The Instruction from The LORD in HIS Word that we might come to know What or Who is The Truth. We must proceed prayerfully in the order presented that The Truth might be understood or opened in our hearts "That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God" (Ephesians 3:16-19).

The Key that will open to us the things of GOD is in receiving first The Gift of Faith from Him, Who comes from above. For there is no other way by which we might receive The Things given to us of GOD. By not accepting The Gift of GOD, men will fail to please HIM, WHO sent Him. It is The Gift given of GOD Who helps us to comprehend the things about HIM, Which are hard for the natural man to comprehend. It is through His Faith that we see The Things That are hard to be seen. For The Word said, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1).

Faith is not having faith in faith. It is having a hope that is strengthened, and supported by every layer of substance, that is presented as evidence to support the hope of That, Which is hard to be seen, or cannot be seen by the natrual man. However, with every supporting evidence that is revealed to the natural man, That, Which is hard to be seen dawns upon the heart to transform the natural man into a spiritural man, that he or she might see by faith That, Which is hard to be seen without faith.

This transformation of the changed mind, or the dawning of understanding upon the heart, cannot take place by the receiving of only One layer of evidence presented, or one ray of Light in a darken heart. But with every application of substance received in the heart and mind, a conversion of the heart will result, based on the evidence that is given to support the hope of That, Which is hard to be seen. some might look for a desired hope, and choose the substance, or the evidence of that hope, only to confirm in their own hearts and minds that they need not to make a change in that which is hoped for. If however the evidence reveals something different from that which is hoped for, they might then reject the changing of their hearts and minds, because the evidence that was received does not support what they hoped for. It is with this understanding in guiding the minds and hearts of men to The Truth that The Word of God said to His disciples, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now" (Joh 16:12).

Some might think in their minds that they will believe in GOD and receive HIS Son when He appears in the clouds of heaven, but the real question to their hearts is this, "Will they know Him from another, who might make the claim of being The Christ?" Would they reject The Truth to keep hope in a lie, because it is what they hoped for? John testified and said, "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:10-13).

If it is the hope of one to wait until The Lord's returns in the air to believe on Him, then the substance presented in this verse above, reveals that we cannot wait for that day to covert our hearts. For He was in the world, which He created and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and they received Him not. Unless we know Him, we cannot receive Him. And the things that were done by those of old, could be repeated again today by those, who know Him not. In presenting supporting evidence for our belief in Him, Paul testified and said, "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Like a puzzle with its many parts to the whole, or a gift within many layers of packaging that defines the gift; We must continue to behold the evidence that is presented by The Word of GOD, and keep on looking with the mind at each layer of substance presented, that the glory of That, Which is seen might open to our understanding more of That, Which we hope for. Our understanding of That, Which is hard to be seen, would be based on the evidence, Which is revealed by The Word and received in our hearts. If we reject That, Which is revealed by The Word, to put in His place what we hope for, then what we hope for will not be based on the supporting evidence of The Word. And if the substance being presented does not fit with that which we hope for, then the question might be raised, "How do we know that the substance does not fit with our hope?" It could be that what we hope for is in error, and the substance and the evidence does not support and fit with what we hope for.

Like a puzzle with its many parts, do we force the evidence to support our own hope, by removing and adding substance to fit what we hope for, or do we allow The Word of God to present the evidence that will transform our hearts into what He hopes for us. This can only happen if we both trust in HIS Word. For The Word said, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

"Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son [in whom] he delighteth. Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man [that] getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it [is] better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold" (Proverb 3:5-14).

What is the purpose of seeing The Evidence of Truth?
Or receiving Wisdom and Understanding?

David testified and said, "I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil" (Psalms 119:162). Receiving The Word of God in his heart as Great Gain, Matthew testified of What he heard from The LORD through HIS Word, Who said, "...what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26)

Paul testified of The Word to the church at Philippi and said, "...what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith" (Philippians 3:7-9)

To us The Word of God says, "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches" (Revelation 3:18-22).
