12 For the word of God is quick [living], and powerful [active], and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner and judge of the thoughts and intents of the heart.4 [Paul is describing the power that works in a man to bring him to the rest; which power is the Word of God, Jesus, the power of God. In the beginning was the word, and the word was God. John 1:1. And he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God...And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:13,16. I am he who searches the minds and the hearts. Jer 17:10, Rev 2:23. And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength. Rev 1:16. Jesus, the word of God is alive and lasts forever. 1 Peter 1:23]
13 There is not any created being that is not seen [continually] by God, but all things are exposed and open to the eyes of him [God] to whom we must give an account. [This is further definition of the Word of God above, that searches the hearts and minds; all past thoughts, past actions, are exposed and observed by the Word of God, Jesus. The Bible does not see; the Bible does not have eyes; but Jesus Christ sees all the creation continually because He fills the whole earth and the heavens, which He, the Word of God, made all the worlds and heavens. Heb 11:3, Psa 33:6.]
8 You have set our iniquities before you, and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.1
13 But all things [sins] reproved are made manifest [revealed] by the light. For whatever reveals is light. [Revealed by the light of the word, Jesus, who reproves every man of sin with light that reveals the sins of his heart to him; the light anonymously pleads with us to cease our evil behavior, but men in their darkness do not comprehend the light. While a man may forget the light's reproving him of his sins, when that man dies, he will see every reproof of God in his lifetime played back vividly and they will be his judge, John 12:47-48; he will remember them all and be ashamed that he ignored the gentle pleadings of his creator.]
|1 Corinthians 4:5 |
5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and expose the motives of your hearts;1 then each will receive praise from God.
