I was brought up in the Roman Catholic faith. It was driven in our head that everything pertaining to God was a mystery. We were therefore instructed to leave to the clergies the interpretation of the scriptures. The bible was forbidden for us to read. The myth was that it made people crazy. Now and then, we would hear stories of such phenomenon. At the age of 20, I bought a bible, and I have been crazy ever since, LOL. Little did I know that God revealed to those who love Him, to anyone who seek Him. Moreover, once the fever to learn got into me, there was no stone that was to be left unturned.
Now when I look back I understand. He toke action in my life. He saw that I was overwhelmed by the care of this world. I was miserable, unhappy, with a thirsty soul. He reminded me of my first love. He knew what I wont all along. Now when I look back, I do understand what happen. When a church denies the Holy Spirit, God deny the church Titus 1:15-16, 2 Timothy 3:4-6, 2 Peter 2:1-3. The church is the body of Christ. He is the Head. The members are filled with the Holy Spirit. One of the main purpose of the Holy Spirit is to teach 1 Co 2:13. The Worldwide Church of God became the prey of false teachers as forewarn by, Jude: 5. Since the false teachers were in a position of leadership, many recognized it and left.
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. Luke 10:21
"the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints". Colossians 1:26
