Receiving The Gift of GOD

Could we say that the package and the gift is the same thing? If we never open the package to see and receive the gift that was sent to us, can we really answer and say that we have received the gift that was given to us? The package could have been switched, or the wrong gift could have been delivered to us.

Isaiah testified and said something about The Sealed Book. He said, "...the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which [men] deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned" (Isaiah 29:11,12).
Could it be that The Package has been delivered into the hands of men, but not many have opened by faith The Gift given by GOD? And men are giving as their excuse, saying, "Although I am educated, I cannot open The Book, because it is said to be sealed" or, "I am not educated, so I cannot read The Book." So the question then goes out to all, saying, "Who then is worthy to open The Book and to read The Things that are written therein?" Could it be that there are those, who have open the report, but because they are applying their own reasoning to The Things GOD has revealed by The Gift of Faith, The Things of GOD remain sealed to them? How would you feel, if you were commanded to deliver to men The Things that you have seen and heard by faith, but no one could open and read your report?

Testifying on The Things sealed in The Book, Isaiah also said, "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not" (Isaiah 53:1-3).

Why would men and women reject The Gift of GOD? Could it be that it is because they are not able to discern the difference between the package and The Gift? And because of this, men have despised and rejected both the package and The Gift? Only those, who by faith have open The Book in The Hand of HIM, WHO sits upon the throne will be able to receive The Gift of GOD and be blessed to receive The Revelation, Which GOD has revealed to His Church. For it would be impossible for those, who have not HIS Gift to understand and receive HIS Truth and believe HIS Revelation. For The Revelation of GOD to man could be right in front of the faces of those, who see HIS Word, and they will not acknowledge receiving The Things HE has revealed to men by HIS Word.

Jesus said it this way, saying, "...Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

"This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard [this], said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? [What] and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father" (John 6:53-65).

In these words, The Father has revealed to men The Gift of HIS Son, but because men of their own reasoning cannot understand HIS Word, they conclude that HIS Word is hard to be received, or to be opened in their understanding, because it is sealed. Yet The Word comes to us in and through the package of His servants, who have received Him to do HIS Will. And through them HE, The Father speaks by HIS Word, Who has given Himself to us that we might live by Him forever. We cannot live by Him, except we also receive and eat The Word of GOD that He might dwell in us and we in Him. Unless The Word of GOD abides in us, The Things that GOD has revealed to us by HIS Word would be hard to open to our understanding, and The Word, Who is delivered into our hands, as The Gift of GOD to men, will then remained sealed from taking Root in our hearts.
