Great and unsearchable things

Google can’t give us an answer for everything. 

Einstein said The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as all serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind.”

So who do we call when we want to delve into mysteries?

God says “Call on me, and I will show you great and unsearchable things.”  Jeremiah 33:3

“It’s the glory of God to conceal a matter, to search a matter is the glory of Kings.”  Proverbs 25:2

The joy is in arriving at the answers.

The Lord loves a mystery!

  1. Jo, Paul loved sharing ‘mysteries’ too and I’ve highlit the word’s occurrences in my Bible. In ruminating over the Lord’s Parousia either before or after my going ‘home’ I focused upon 1 Cor 15:51 and its context: a rich source for contemplation!

    • Hi Richard,
      I agree, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 is a rich source of contemplation,
      “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
      And that mystery is echoed in Ephesians 5:31-33 where marriage is likened to Christ and the Church.
      “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
      A mystery is something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain.
      I think the covenant is hinted at in Proverbs 30:18-19 where it says “There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
      Yes, four which I do not understand:
      The way of an eagle in the air,
      The way of a serpent on a rock,
      The way of a ship in the midst of the sea,
      And the way of a man with a virgin.”
      Does the way of a man with a virgin echo that of Christ with the Church?
      It’s interesting that the thing in common with the first three things – the things that are wonderful, is movement. The eagle, snake and ship leave no tracks in the sky, on the rock or on the sea.
      But all four things are described as not being understood.
      I don’t really have any conclusion to make except the different verses seem to fit together to highlight the beauty, romance and mystery of how Christ sees the Church.
      Those are my thoughts, I would love to hear what you think.
