Revelation of the Father is the act of revealing or disclosing the depth of God to man. It is great truths about God that are revealed at the right moment and timing. Such revelation is usually awe-inspiring because it is gloriously impactful. It carries the transformative power of God and it leads to our increased sense of tie-in or bond with the Godhead. In Christ Jesus, the revelation of the Father is dramatically disclosed, which means that we can access the vastness of revealed manifestation of divine truth by intense desire.

Reference: Matthew 11:27 New Living Translation (NLT) "My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

All things in heaven and on earth have been committed to Jesus by the Father. And there's benefit to gain from this: When we're exposed to the light of conscious awareness that Christ is all we need, our confidence and focus on Him increases. But here's another truth: The manner of respect Jesus has for His Father is extremely terrific. John 1:18 (NIV) says, "No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known." Notice the phrase, "and is in closest relationship with the Father." Although they are One and the same, there is a mutual relationship between the Father and the Son.

In another way, although Christ Himself is God, the extent of His commitment to His relationship with God is very deep and this can be clearly seen in the way He submitted to God and also His consistency in acknowledging Him as "My Father" verbally. As Christians, we are called to follow the same principle, attitude, value and action, in regard to honouring God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Why must we do this? Its because we can only mingle with the Godhead by true submission and honour. Moreover, according to our referenced Scripture, Jesus Himself said, "No one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him." So our revelation knowledge of the Father is dependent on Christ's choice to reveal God to us. If this is the case, we must deliberately make ourselves the right choice.

John 3:35 says, "The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand." Aside from God committing everything into His hands, Christ Jesus also has the full and exact knowledge of the Father. Therefore, no commitment to Christ, no revelation knowledge. To gain the revelation knowledge of the Father, we must deliberately position ourselves for it through submission to Christ and also strive for consistency in our commitment to Christ. In Colossians 3:1-2, Paul tells us how to do this. He says, "Since you were brought back to life with Christ, focus on the things that are above - where Christ holds the highest position." By deliberate choice, you must set your mind on the heavenly realities and strive for such depth of knowledge with conscious faith and attitude because it doesn't come by chance. Simply put, don't take it for granted.

Higher minds attract the revelation knowledge of the Father. And this is exactly what Paul is saying: Set the mind on things above, where Christ holds the highest position, which means, its up to you. This is because this kind of knowledge is not perceived by the human mind (natural man) or shared by all humanity. It is spiritual, not earthly; Christ Himself is the source, and its communicated to us by the Spirit of truth. Remember, Christ lives in us by His Spirit, and so, the revelation of the Father is a disclosure of spiritual information or deep knowledge of God to our spirit by the divine or supernatural agency known as the Holy Spirit. Stay tuned for part 2 of this topic. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - Luke 10:22; John 1:1-3; Philippians 2:6-7; John 14:6-11; Colossians 2:9.

Exuberant Declaration: Jesus Christ is the Son of the true living God, and in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. By interacting daily with Christ in me, I exercise conscious deliberation in positioning myself to always receive the divine revelation and depth of God's will for me. Therefore, I'm high-thoughted, with "far above" realities governing my mind richly, and I convert them to my lifestyle through the dominant influence of the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
