Deep Things of God

deep“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. (Mat 7:6 NKJ)

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. (1Co 2:9-10 NKJ)

 Not everybody is ready to receive the deep things of God, and that can include Christians.  If you take the deep things of God and share them with a person that’s unsaved, or a Christian that spends more time courting the world, then don’t be surprised if they mock you, and trample the holy things underfoot.

 The Psalmist in Psalm 24 asks the question, “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? The answer comes, “He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.”  Not everybody ascends the hill of the Lord.  Some stay behind and settle for a golden calf.  Sometimes you just need to keep the deep things of God in your heart until the time is right to share.
