…the spirit of wisdom and revelation…and the eyes of your understanding being enlightened that you may know… (Ephesians 1:17-18)
“Revelations knowledge unfolds the way God sees you and what God says about you.” – Mark Hankins
Revelation knowledge is different than sense knowledge. Revelation knowledge unfolds to you the way God sees you and what God says about you. It is not what your parents said about you, what you have said about yourself, what other people have said about you, or even what your own natural experience says about you. Revelation knowledge simply says, “I am who God says I am. I have what God says I have. I can do what God says I can do.”
You can have a sentimental view of the cross. You can have crosses on your wall and Bibles all over your house and still never really know your identification with Christ. But once the eyes of your heart are flooded with the light of the glorious Gospel, you see what God did in Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. You see that God did everything for you.
Confession: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. (Galatians 2:20)
