VIDEO The Deepest Secrets

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:10

The Bible is a human Book—every word written by someone—so we should study it with ordinary methods of interpretation, not turning everything into some kind of allegory but taking the literal portions of the Bible literally and correctly interpreting elements that are poetic or clearly symbolic. But the Bible is also a divine Book—every word given by God—so we must study it with the Holy Spirit as our tutor.

James M “Buck” Hatch, legendary professor at Columbia International University, taught that since the Bible is God’s Word, we must be His children to truly understand it, and we must be willing to trust it and obey it, praying in the spirit of Psalm 119:18: “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.”

In 1 Corinthians 2, the apostle Paul said that as we study the Bible, only the Holy Spirit can open our eyes to its deepest secrets (“the deep things of God,” verse 10). What a statement! Through Spirit-blessed daily Bible study, we can understand God’s deep and wonderful secrets. Approaching our study of God’s Word with meekness helps us learn and grow.

One must be continually submitted to the will of God to understand the Scriptures. James M. Hatch
