Words Of Truth

"That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth..." (Proverbs 22:21).


Blessed Are The Eyes Which See The Things That Ye See

Outline by tBrian A. Yeager

I. Introduction:

A. Sometimes people just do not see the truth (Acts 28:17-31).

1. Some are too hard hearted (Ezekiel 3:6-7).

2. Some are blinded by ungodly influences (II Corinthians 4:1-6).

3. Some just don’t care (Psalms 81:11-12).

B. Few choose to have open eyes and find the right way (Matthew 7:13-14).

1. Seeing the truth is about desire (Psalms 119:1-16).

2. Blessed are those who hear and keep the truth (Luke 11:28).

 

II. Body: Luke 10:1-24

A. Things hidden from the wise and prudent meaning... (I Corinthians 1:18-31).

1. Those truly wise and prudent get real knowledge (Proverbs 1:5, Proverbs 16:21, and Proverbs 18:15).

2. Consider what God says about the right kind of wisdom and prudence (Proverbs 8:12-36).

B. Choosing to see (Matthew 13:10-16).

1. Conversion required us to have the ability to see (Acts 26:18-20).

2. Once seeing doesn’t mean always seeing (Mark 8:14-21).

C. The faithful of old did not see what Jesus taught and showed the disciples (Matthew 13:17).

1. It was not that they did not seek, rather it was not visible (I Peter 1:9-12).

2. Thankfully, not through our works but His grace, we live in the dispensation wherein those mysteries are revealed through the Gospel (Romans 16:25-26).

D. We [faithful disciples today] have seen even more than they (I Corinthians 13:8-13).

1. They had physically seen Jesus, His works, etc. (Acts 1:1-3 and I John 1:1-2).

2. What does that ultimately mean though (John 12:36-43, John 20:24-29, and II Corinthians 5:7)?

3. Paul, contextually looking toward the days of full revelation we now have, called our time the “more excellent way” (I Corinthians 12:31).

4. Consider the greater privilege we have by having fully been given “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (II Peter 1:1-4).



III. Conclusion: Let’s keep our eyes open lest we become fools (Jeremiah 5:21)!
