I have always wondered if the Bible is for 'all of us' to understand fully, or if it's only for a chosen few to fully understand. I don't mean is it just for one 'religion' to understand, I mean is it just for say 'an anointed group of people to understand'? Jesus spoke in illustrations to the people, but the disciples asked Jesus what the illustrations meant. Then Jesus would explain the illustration to them fully. Jesus told his disciples that 'to them the sacred secrets would be revealed' but that the crowd would not get the meaning of such things. It was also that after Jesus was resurrected he opened the eyes of his disciples / apostles so that they began to fully understand all things. For my part I would never expect to fully understand God's word the Bible. A lot of it is straight forward of course, and easy to comprehend. But I think a lot of it is 'in deep code' so to speak, only fully understood by those that Jehovah chooses.. It still seems strange to me, but it would be a separate topic, that God allows it to be so difficult for people to find any truth amongst the huge amount of lies in 'religion'. However, in my opinion, there has to be a 'group of humans' 'anointed people' that do have some direct contact with God, through Jesus Christ. We no longer have 'miracles' being done in Christ's name, so it is difficult to know exactly who the 'chosen ones' are. If there was a 'body of people' that could prove that they had God's approval and God's holy spirit, that would make life much easier. However when those that say they are chosen either make mistakes or tell lies about the meaning of scripture, and then their predictions fail, then they seem to prove themselves false or without God's guidance. So we go back to square one. Is there really a 'body of people' being truly guided and upbuilt by God's holy spirit at this time ? Is the Bible and it's prophecies being fully opened up to such ones ?
