Wrestling with Warnock Round 7

From “Feast of Tabernacles,” Chapter 1- Continued

We are aware that we have only touched the fringe of Truth relative to this great subject which we have undertaken to explore; and we know that when the Scriptures are openly and manifestly fulfilled before our very eyes–the unveiled Truth and Glory of the Feasts of the Lord shall far transcend anything that we have ever imagined in our contemplation and meditation of the Word. But this, indeed, is cause for great encouragement–knowing that in the hour of the great Unveiling of the Sons of God we shall see and hear and perceive and experience a power and a glory such as we have never imagined to be within the realm of possibility.

May God, therefore, give us guidance by His Spirit to see and understand and contemplate wondrous things out of His Word–the entrance of which giveth light to such as are in darkness, and the appropriation of which giveth understanding to the simple, wisdom to the foolish, and illumination to the blind. We care not for established creeds or doctrines or theological disputes, nor for the marginal notes we find in our various expository and reference Bibles. God has spoken, and that is sufficient. If Christians are content to abide by the revelation they have received at the hands of great men of the past–let them be content. But God is now leading His people onward and upward to higher heights, to greater depths, to vaster expanses of Truth and Glory than the saints have ever enjoyed or appropriated in the past. Therefore we fix our hopes and our eyes upon the God of increasing revelation, even on Him who is …Able to do …Exceedingly …Abundantly …Above all …That we ask …Or Think …According to the power …That worketh in us.

Let others look at the apostasy of a corrupt church system; but let us behold the unfolding glory of the true Church, and exult with the Apostle Paul, in the face of all opposition; “Unto Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus through all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Eph. 3:20, 21). GHW


In Romans 8:19, the apostle Paul tells us, “For the eagerly awaiting creation waits for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God” (NASB). The question we must ask ourselves is, “How is that revealing going to take place.” The word for revealing in Romans 8:19 is the Greek “apokalupsis.” It means not only the thing shown and seen, but the interpretation, the unveiling of the same. So it has a deeper and more comprehensive meaning than only showing.

Bro. Warnock says, “the unveiled Truth and Glory of the Feasts of the Lord shall far transcend anything that we have ever imagined in our contemplation and meditation of the Word,” and “knowing that in the hour of the great Unveiling of the Sons of God we shall see and hear and perceive and experience a power and a glory such as we have never imagined to be within the realm of possibility.” Can we see the connection Bro. Warnock makes here between these two great unveilings?

Do not think, as we continue our journey, that Bro. Warnock is referring to a “secret” knowledge, attainable only to an elite group of thinkers. Notice who he calls on to help us in our discoveries. “May God, therefore, give us guidance by His Spirit to see and understand and contemplate wondrous things out of His Word–the entrance of which giveth light to such as are in darkness, and the appropriation of which giveth understanding to the simple, wisdom to the foolish, and illumination to the blind.” He as much says that humility is the key to receiving anything from God.

It is the Holy Spirit, the great Teacher of truth that brings revelation to those who seek it. Bro. Warnock says that, “… God is now leading His people onward and upward to higher heights, to greater depths, to vaster expanses of Truth and Glory than the saints have ever enjoyed or appropriated in the past.” And then quoting Ephesians 3:20, he continues, “Therefore we fix our hopes and our eyes upon the God of increasing revelation, even on Him who is …Able to do …Exceedingly …Abundantly …Above all …That we ask …Or Think …According to the power …That worketh in us.” This increasing revelation is not to be confused with “new revelation” that some seek outside the Word of God. Rather, he calls us to plumb depths we have not explored in the Word of God with the holy Spirit as our guide.

Bro. Warnock exhorts us to, “Let others look at the apostasy of a corrupt church system; but let us behold the unfolding glory of the true Church, and exult with the Apostle Paul, in the face of all opposition; “Unto Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus through all ages, world without end. Amen.”
