GOD WANTS US TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND HIS MESSAGES TO US
It is God's will for His people to know and understand the meaning of His words. Why would God go through all the trouble
to send angels as messengers, even appearing Himself, also bring his servants up to heaven for a "heavenly glimpse" of things
to come if His whole intention was to hide the meaning from us?
Why would God make things so complicated so only the most intelligent and educated scholars can understand them? That sounds
a lot like what the Church did during the dark ages. Hid the truth from the people. Outlawed the Bible in the common language
so they can control the people and tell them exactly what to believe.
Her are verses that prove once and for all that God wants His people to know and understand. God wanted Daniel to know and
John to know and He wants US to know and understand the meaning of these prophecies. How can we obey a God who isn't clear
and we can't understand?
