What is the world’s most omitted second half? Here are some nominations.
* The second half of NFL preseason games. (Look how many people leave before or during the second half.)
* The second half of a homework reading assignment. (If I was a teacher I would ask most of the test questions from the second half of the assignments.)
* The second half of a fast food meal. (Have you even noticed how much fast food gets thrown away?)
What’s your nomination? Here’s mine:
The second half of the statement made in I Corinthians 14:9-10. The first half of this statement is a very frequently quoted Bible verse: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.”
I bet you have heard that quoted before. However, that is not the entire statement. The most important part has been left out. And the left out second half totally changes the meaning.
It says: “But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.”
So why is this the world’s most omitted second half? Because it is not just omitted when the Bible verse is quoted. It is also omitted, millions of times every day, when people try to approach God with what they see and hear, and try to make their mind understand Him; yet they neglect to ask God for and to receive supernatural revelation from the Holy Spirit.
