God's Revelation To Us

2 Peter 1:20-21
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
NKJV

God has set forth His plan for all of creation. This plan involves the redemption of fallen man through the love of God the Father and the saving grace of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 13:13-14).

In revelation we have the vertical reception of God's truth while in inspiration we have the horizontal communication of that revelation accurately to others. This is the premise behind the study of the Bible. Scholars use several terms to describe the preparation of the original manuscripts, their truth, and the method by which the Holy Spirit uses these truths.

God has shown His plan through His revelation this revelation comes in two forms

General Revelation of nature ...

...and of conscience

But this is not enough

So God has provided His special revelation through the living Word, Jesus Christ ...

...and through His written Word, the Holy Scriptures, the Bible.

This has been done so that men through the ages who do not know Jesus Christ personally can know of Him, learn about Him, and come to accept Him by faith

We learn about Jesus through accepting Him as Lord and Savior, studying His Word, and allowing the Holy Spirit to illuminate God's message in our hearts.
