Deuteronomy 29:1-end- The LORD directed Moses to remind the children of Israel of all that the LORD had done among them right from the land of Egypt to this point. They were witnesses to all of them. The warning again to them is to remember that He alone deserves all their worship and must not bow down to any other god that those nations worship. If they do, they will be destroyed just like the other nations were destroyed, they will be scattered into all the other nations. The last verse (29) of this chapter says “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

God in His infinite mercies revealed to the children of Israel all that would happen to them if they refused to follow His commands when they finally settle in the promised land. God is ALL-KNOWING God, that is why He continuously send these directives to them so that they will not forget to walk on the path of righteousness. He did not want anyone to perish, that is why He has revealed this to them so that they be careful to carry out His ordinances. What He has revealed to us is for us to keep and abide by. The fact that the whole world be unified together through our Lord Jesus Christ was also revealed to the apostle Paul in many of his writings. In particular God made known to him what was not known before his time. 1 Corinthians 2:7-10 says ”  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 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.”

Truly the secret things belong to God. What He has in mind from the foundation of the world and His purpose for mankind belong to Him, and he is revealing them piece by piece as He deems fit. We are grateful to God that He had revealed His plan for the world through our Lord Jesus Christ. He has prepared wonderful things that eyes have not seen nor ears have heard for all of us who love Him. In Him (Jesus Christ) we were circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which we were also raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.(Colossians 2:11). Therefore all our sins have been forgiven. He also wiped out the handwriting of the requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. He nailed them on the cross, and put the principalities and powers to shame. So we have victory in our Lord Jesus Christ. Nothing can hold us bound again, because all the work of our salvation have been completed on the cross of Calvary.(Colossians 2:12-14)

The secret things belong to God, and later apostle John got the revelation of the end time. All these are documented in the Book of Revelation. These are revealed to us to warn us of the wrath to come on the world  especially on those that do not give their lives to Christ or are disobedient to His teachings. What has been revealed are for us to keep and abide by. I pray the Lord Jesus will uphold us to the end and we will not be found wanting when He returns to the earth to reap His harvest in Jesus Name, Amen. Be blessed!!!
