Response to Of course I recognize who God is, that he is he, the Almighty, and I recognize

 
Clear recognition of Jesus is asecret thing

Identifying Jesus can only come by “divine revelation.” This is the mystery revealed to His chosen:

Col 1:26 “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made
manifest to his saints.”

But to the Old Testament saints, by faith, this mystery about Jesus was revealed to them. Foremost
among them is Abel who offered a “lamb” that symbolizes Jesus long before He was born and crucified
on the cross.

Heb 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Heb 11:13 “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off,
and were persuaded of them, and embraced them…”

How many have seen this “miracle” of recognizing Jesus ? This is repeated for emphasis.

Mat 16:15 “He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?”

Mat 16:16 “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the
living God.”

Mat 16:17 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and
blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

No wonder Jesus told His Disciples not to tell anybody that He is the CHRIST. After Simon Peter
recognized Him as the CHRIST and the SON of the living God, He told them:

Mat 16:20 “Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.”

Mar 3:12 “And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.”

Indeed God is speaking in parables foroutsiders not to see ”:

Joh 9:39 “And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might
see; and that they which see might be made blind.”

Mar 4:11 “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God:
but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see,
and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be
converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.”
