The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant
– Psalms 25:14
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
– 1 Corinthians 2:14
11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
– Mark 4:11
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
– 1 Corinthians 1:23
The truth is veiled to a world ruled by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:15). Enslaved in their fleshly senses can they not see the truth, nor could they live it, but are instead are bent against it (Romans 8:7). But the secret veiled did He unveiled to us who believe.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
– John 1:12-13
