Luke 2:35

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 35 (Yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed." [The sword is the words from the Spirit of Christ that He speaks to a man, which words reveal that man's evil ways and thoughts. From the Word of the Lord within: "The Lord is gentle and kind to those whom He corrects, and even more than usual to those in suffering circumstances."]

 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is advantageous for you that I go away. For if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you.

 8 And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong [reprove all men] concerning sin, and concerning righteousness, and concerning judgment.1 [Every man has his day of visitation from the Holy Spirit, when he hears the Lord's quiet and anonymous reproofs. Those, who do not believe Him, (his words of reproof), remain in condemnation. But if a man heeds His reproofs, the Lord pours his Spirit and words on him, Pro 20:23,33; teaching a man how to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; to then finally judge a man, gathering his wheat, (his works of love, energized and motivated by operational faith), into the barn and burning up the chaff (works of sin) with unquenchable fire the Holy Spirit's baptism of death to the selfish spirit of Satan in a man.]

 9 Of sin, because they do not believe in me. [When a man hears the gnetle, anonymous call to forsake his evil ways, if he repents, God gives him more of His spirit and hunger to seek Him. Those, who do not believe Him, (the Lord's words of reproof), and continue sinning until death, suffer a hard judgment; and the words that man heard and ignored will be remembered, which same words will judge him, John 12:47-48, to his great shame and sorrow. The light shines in the darkness; and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:5. For everyone who does evil deeds (sins) hates the light (so hates Christ, who is the light) and does not come to the light for fear his deeds will be exposed and reproved. John 3:20.]

 9 And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intents of the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.

Psalms 90:8

 8 You have set our iniquities before you, and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.1

Ephesians 5:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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.]
