    Searching Into Divine Mysteries

    “‘The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever.’” Deuteronomy 29:29. The revelation of Himself that God has given in His Word is for our study. This we may seek to understand. But beyond this we are not to penetrate. The highest intellect may tax itself until it is exhausted by conjecturing regarding the nature of God, but the effort will be fruitless. This problem has not been given us to solve. No human mind can comprehend God. None are to indulge in speculation regarding His nature. Here silence is eloquence. The Omniscient One is above discussion.MHH 246.5

    Even the angels were not permitted to share the counsels between the Father and the Son when the plan of salvation was laid. And human beings are not to intrude into the secrets of the Most High. We are as ignorant of God as little children, but, as little children, we may love and obey Him.MHH 247.1

    Instead of speculating in regard to His nature or His prerogatives, let us give heed to the words He has spoken:MHH 247.2

    “‘Can you search out the deep things of God?MHH 247.3

    Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?
    They are higher than heaven—what can you do?
    Deeper than Sheol—what can you know?
    Their measure is longer than the earth
    And broader than the sea.’”
    MHH 247.4

    “‘Where can wisdom be found?
    And where is the place of understanding?
    Man does not know its value,
    Nor is it found in the land of the living.
    The deep says, “It is not in me”;
    And the sea says, “It is not with me.”
    It cannot be purchased for gold,
    Nor can silver be weighed for its price.
    It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir,
    In precious onyx or sapphire. ...
    MHH 247.5

    “‘From where then does wisdom come?
    And where is the place of understanding? ...
    Destruction and Death say,
    “We have heard a report about it with our ears.”
    God understands its way,
    And He knows its place.
    For He looks to the ends of the earth,
    And sees under the whole heavens. ...
    When He made a law for the rain,
    And a path for the thunderbolt,
    Then He saw wisdom and declared it;
    He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.
    And to man He said,
    “Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
    And to depart from evil is understanding.”’” Job 11:7-9; 28:12-28.
