Why God Hides Answers

"It's God's glory to hide matters; and to seek them out is kings' glory." Proverbs 25

God wants kings. That's the main reason why God hides answers. Some people ask me why God often does not answer prayers pronto. Or, why does he hide answers so that even when they're so obvious most people still do not see them and thus err.

One guy asked me why people who are fanatics of feng shui and Chinese New Year traditions still get rich? Doesn't God curse those who believe in  superstitions? He did so in the bible and he judged them immediately. Why not today?

In short, it's a why-God-hides-answers issue. So instantly I asked God about it and got an instant answer. It's for hardening their hearts. God hides obvious answers to people to harden their hearts, because anyway, they are hopelessly resigned to wrong and even evil paths. So God allows them to be further misled by making it look like they get more blessed.

He Wants Kings

Only kings would dare seek out truth--HIS truth in particular. God watches those whose hearts are fully devoted to seeking out truth. He calls them kings. And seeking out means a readiness and stubbornness to tackle difficulties and overcome hindrances just to get at truth--God's truth--truth that aligns with the bible. God sees this rare breed of people as "kings" in the Spirit. They are the kings in KING of kings. And God is after their glory, that's why God hides answers, to prod or stimulate people to seek him out and thus be transformed into kings of the Kingdom, sitting on the Throne with the King [Eph.2.6]. 

These kings are earnest seekers of God and truth, through God's Word and creation. They are ready to temporarily suffer discomfort, because there's great discomfort in seeking out answers that God has hidden. You can never discover God's secrets from your comfort zones. You have got to take risks, risks that are never comfy for the flesh.

Yes, secret things belong to God, says Deuteronomy, but the things hidden belong to kings. My Jesus once said, to His disciples are given the keys to God's Kingdom secrets. But to those outside, only parables or riddles or hidden things permanently locked are given. What do you choose? I'd always go for God's secrets revealed to kings. Yeah, you may not look like a king in the eyes of the world, but you definitely are in God's eyes. What do you choose?

Why God hides answers? It's to separate kings from subjects, in the heavenly realms. "I no longer call you subjects or slaves. Slaves do not know anything. I call you friends (kings)." For who can be friends with the KING except his fellow kings? That's powerfully God's flesh!

How to Know If a Ministry is Failing in God's Eyes

It's easy to see if a ministry is really failing. Remember, God is spirit. The only way to please him is in spirit and in truth. You cannot please God by your church building, church income, membership size or Sunday worship programs.

Actually, the ministry Jesus showed us in the bible was so simple. It's super simple, in fact. It's mainly on preaching, miraculous healing, and discipleship. Just these three. We don't have to add anything to this. Jesus did only these three and he did well. He pleased the Father to the max.

Preaching

You don't have to be a titled preacher to do this. Just share the Word. All you need is knowledge of the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. These two equip you to the max. The Word of God is God breathed "so that the man of God may be adequate, fully equipped for every good work," [2 Timothy 3.17].

You see the words, "fully eq…

Micah: Statutes of Omri and Practices of Ahab

It begins with the statutes of Omri (Micah 6.16). Omri was a follower of the evil ways of Jeroboam (1Kings16). He laid down the statutes (or doctrines) and Ahab his son applied and developed them. These are all against being God's flesh on earth.

Omri’s statutes were simple: they were based on wicked and corrupt ways as King Jeroboam did them. How did Jeroboam do them? Simply by doing God’s will in man’s ways. He disobeyed the prophet Ahijah who told him to do everything in God’s ways alone: “If you do everything I command you and walk in my ways and do whatever is correct in my eyes...I will build you a dynasty...”(1Kings11).

Jeroboam grabbed God's will of kingship but did it in greed. Man's ways are nothing but greed, no matter how they try to make it look religious or spiritual or "Christian."

But because of his greed for corrupt power he did everything wicked—he did everything in man’s ways. He always “thought to himself” and not to God, and he revived the …

God as Your Stronghold

"My Life's Stronghold is God." -Ps.27
We read about it several times in the bible that God is a stronghold. Do we know what "stronghold" means? Often, we associate "stronghold" with the devil, like "the devil's stronghold." So, what do we mean by God is my stronghold? How does God become a stronghold. If you don't know what it means to have God as stronghold, that's a stronghold.
Devil as Stronghold
When a person has strong propensities to sin and evil, we say that it's due to a stronghold. And we mean that the devil's hold on that person is really strong. No matter how much that person wants to change and start going to church, he just can't. When presented with a situation that makes him choose between good and evil, he is likely to choose evil even if in his mind he wants good. If he chooses good, it'll just be for a moment---probably 5 seconds---and then be back to evil again. That's a stronghold.
