Philosophy

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.”

Act 1, Scene 5, Hamlet
William Shakespeare

Very wise words indeed!

Theology, as it is generally thought of today, is nothing more than a compilation of philosophy; a product of man’s thinking. The word “theology” appears nowhere in the Bible. King James, New King James, NIV, NAS… nowhere.

Philosophies are based upon thoughts and conclusions; they too are of the mind of man. And so, like a philosophy, a theology is a grouping of a person’s or a people’s conclusions.

Kingdom truth however is based solely upon intimate relationship followed by a resultant revelation.

Intimate relationship leads to a release of what one’s partner knows. When we love someone, a trust is established to release deeper things held dear to each.

Where God is concerned, when I become intimate with Him in love, He begins to reveal Himself to me by showing me what He knows according to what He desires for me to know.

What He knows has no bearing, nor holds no definition in this world. And so Kingdom truth is given by revelation. It can’t be concluded, we must be revealed to it.

Theologies outside of revelation are worthless. They are nothing more than what man knows. It’s the tiny box man puts God in. Kingdom truth, however, is more precious than gold and is limited only be how much of it God desires to release to us. It is also limited by our choice to receive it.

Theologies and philosophies, therefore, are conceived. How limited is the mind of man, and the sum of all our conclusions!

Therefore, the only way to truth that is of any value is love, the love of God, of Jesus and of the Holy Spirit. An intimacy that leads the church into the inner courts of God, the very, and only place of revelation knowledge.
