"God Does Nothing Unless He Reveals His Secret Counsel" (Season 8, Episode 8)

When a calamity occurs, is God the one behind it? When a tragedy strikes, is God trying to send some sort of message? People wonder about these things all of the time. As a result, they spend many hours speculating, wondering, and worrying over some message from God that they assume must be interwoven in the events of their life. So they try to figure out what God is trying to show them. We need to remember Amos 3:7 – “Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel.

Is Divine Revelation Ongoing Today? (Season 8, Episode 6)

Paul told the Ephesians about the mystery he received by revelation (Ephesians 3:1-3). He was referring to divine revelation – a message that came from God. As an apostle (Ephesians 1:1), the Holy Spirit guided him “into all the truth” (John 16:13) so that he could say, “The things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment” (1 Corinthians 14:37). Does this type of divine revelation still occur today? Many people claim to receive messages directly from heaven. But does God reveal His will directly to people today like He did with Paul and others? It is important that we know the answer to that question.

The Real Pharisees (Part 3): The Pharisees Desired to See Signs from Heaven

The Real Pharisees

The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. But He replied to them, ‘When it is evening, you say, “It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.” And in the morning, “There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.” Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times? An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah’” (Matthew 16:1-4).

The Pharisees – along with the Sadducees – came to Jesus and requested to see “a sign from heaven.” They did not ask this out of sincerity; rather, they were “testing Jesus” (Matthew 16:1). They did this on many occasions – challenging Him in order to find something that they could use against Him.

The Bible says little about the specifics of the practice, so it is not possible for us to satisfy every question one might have with an answer from the Scriptures. However, let us consider what the Bible does tell us about the practice.
