In Mark chapter four, verses 21 through 23, Jesus tells us, “Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light.”
These verses are a reminder to all of us that in the end nothing we think, feel or do is hidden from God and Christ. Christ is the lamp that shines in the darkness, illuminating all of us to the recesses of our very soul.
God and Christ know us so intimately, better than we even know our own selves. When I was interacting with God and Christ while using a legal substance over a few years, I interacted with Christ as the consciousness of the Sun, our star.
He made it very clear to me one night that he wanted me to write about my experiences, by showing me a vision of gold and pink metallic roses, shining and shimmering around my computer on my desk. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
I procrastinated my writing even after this vision; it was as if I was blocked and could not go forward. In a subsequent experience, God told me that he kept pushing me because he was “going to get these feelings out” of me. Suddenly a flood of memories from my late teens came rushing back to me, of things I had felt in college that I didn’t even remember feeling. These were things that had happened over two dozen years ago and they were still buried at the bottom of my heart.
God knew they were there and he kept pushing me to revisit them until I did, because he knew they were blocking me. My outlook on God changed that night; I had still had a vision of him as an antiquated God of religion, but that night he proved to be the best psychiatrist I had ever had. He knew these things were still sitting on my heart, and he brought them out to the light of day.
In these verses Christ wants us to understand that this is how he and God are; they see into our very souls and are with us during every moment of our lives. They know what we think and feel before we do, and they know what pain we have buried in our hearts. They know about all the things we feel, think, and do that we keep hidden from everyone else.
When we accept Salvation through Christ by repenting of our transgressions and asking forgiveness, Jesus will come into our lives and begin to direct us to make changes. He knows all of our secrets and our vices and our habits that can damage our souls and lead us away from him, and he begins to force us to eradicate these things one by one. He and God desperately want us to follow a path toward them and away from spiritual danger, and they will illuminate all of these hazards, so that in the end we can be with them in our heavenly home.
