Sabbath July 28, 2012

The hidden treasure is, as it were, a language of it’s own, separate from the language, or words of men. We are not interested in the words of man, or the wisdom of man, but we want the words and wisdom of God.

    And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 1 Cor. 2:4
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Cor. 2:13
 the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63

To have life, we must eat words, the words of God. The very purpose of the authentic Spirit of Prophecy is to point us to the words of life.

I saw that the Sabbath-keeping ministers of Maine have failed to become Bible students. They have not felt the necessity of a diligent study of the word of God themselves, that they might be thoroughly furnished unto all good works; neither have they felt the necessity of urging the close searching of the Scriptures upon their hearers. p. 198, Para. 2, [20OT].

So today, I will urge upon you “the close searching of the Scriptures.” How shall we do this? It’s simple, it’s thought to be foolishness by the “learned” men of the world, both in and out of the SDA church, but it’s allowing God to define his words, by his words.

There is a great write-up on this very point. It is found in “The Christian Life And Public Labors Of William Miller,” by James White, pages 217 – 225; though the passage could be shortened to 220 or so. It really is worth the read. Very good!

From our study it seems that the hidden treasure language has a very close connection to the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb, perhaps the song that no man can learn? and the new name of Christ. And, in all probability, the new tongues of Mark 16.

How that he was caught up into paradise [Heaven], and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful [or, right] for a man to utter. 2 Cor. 12:4 {because it is hidden???}
 O, that I could talk in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the upper world. The Day-Star

Evidently there is a language of Heaven that we are currently not privy to. Doing a quick search through the Testimonies brings some interesting passages to light.

God says, when he looketh upon the bow in the cloud he will remember. He would not have us understand that he would ever forget; but he speaks to man in his own language, that man may better understand him. p. 74, Para. 1, [3SG].
    The language of the apostle is, “I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ and him crucified.” We may look toward Calvary, and also exclaim, “God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” p. 16, Para. 1, [17OT].

Now mind you, this language is the same as the language of 1 Corinthians 1, and is the same cross, the preaching of which is foolishness to them that perish. Even though these texts have a literal application, they also are hung heavy with the grapes of Canaan, the hidden treasure. Bible words have more than one meaning, foolishness to the wise of the day.

Those who do their duty to others, as they would that others should do to them, are brought into a position where God can reveal himself unto them. They will be approved of God. They are made perfect in love, and their labors and prayers will not be in vain. They are mediums continually receiving grace and truth from the fountain-head, and as freely transmitting the divine light and salvation they receive to others. In them is fulfilled the language of the scripture, “Ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.” p. 66, Para. 1, [19OT].

The Spirit of Prophecy shows them that are still dependant on the milk of the Word, a true spiritual meaning to the text given, the language of Scripture.

There are some things in the Scriptures hard to be understood, and which, according to the language of Peter, the unlearned and unstable wrest unto their own destruction. We may not, in this life, be able to explain the meaning of every passage of Scripture; but there are no vital points of practical truth that will be clouded in mystery. When the time shall come, in the providence of God, for the world to be tested upon the truth for that time, minds will be exercised by the Spirit of God to search the Scriptures, even with fasting and with prayer, until link after link is searched out, uniting in a perfect chain. Every fact which immediately concerns the salvation of men and women is made so clear that none need to err, or walk in darkness. p. 171, Para. 1, [20OT].

It appears that God is bringing out this light on the hidden treasure because this is the language that the Loud Cry will be composed of. The showing forth of the hidden treasure will expose the false foundation Babylon is built on, thus too, bringing the pure light of Heaven to all who will answer the call of faith to come out and be saved.

God Bless your study
