Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
Isaiah 8:16 “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.”
Isaiah 29:10-11 “For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes; the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath He covered. And the vision of all has 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.”
Beloved, you probably know by now that there is a condition in the church today where many people can quote scripture verses, yeah, they are reading the bible, and they know what it says, but they don’t know what much of it means. This is because many of the truths in the bible are still sealed to them. Truth, beloved, is UNVEILED to us as the seals that have locked up those truths are broken (by God).
Along these lines, a dear brother has recently asked to be removed from my e-mail list because he is convinced that I’ve been given over to the deception and delusion of “UR” teachings. I’ve been praying for him, and have held back from getting into a doctrinal debate with him about this because I can tell that certain truths are still sealed to him. I know that what I say to him now about this subject will fall on deaf ears.
Beloved, in Revelation chapter 5 a scroll is mentioned that is written “within and without” (front and back) and it is said to be SEALED.. I believe that this scroll represents TRUTH, and it is not sealed with one seal but with MANY. These must be progressively opened.
In regard to this “front and back” thing, the stone tablets given to Moses were also written on both sides, as was the scroll that Ezekiel saw in a vision. Why do you think these too were written upon on two sides?
Well, I believe that these things all represent the Word of God for us, the Truth, the Expression of the Father’s Heart, and they are written on two sides for those sides represent the LETTER OF THE WORD and THE SPIRIT OF THE WORD.
Yes, through these word pictures of scrolls and tablets I believe that we are given a clue as to the nature of the Word of God. When something is written on two sides, then naturally you cannot see all of the writing at once, part of the writing is visible or revealed to you at one time .. and part of it is not.
Without going long on this, most of you should be able to see that what I’m writing about is READING THE WHITE. It is about fellowship and communion with our Daddy to the extent that He takes more seals off the scroll (gives revelation) so that we can see Him and understand His ways and purposes a little better.
Only GOD can remove these seals for us, and it seems to me that He is moved to do this by our willingness to lay down our lives in service to Him and others, and by hearts that are childlike, trusting, and full of love, love for Him, and love for people.
I hope that this blesses you.
