You have all heard, read or believed
that revelation comes in two flavors. One is general revelation. This revelation is available to all via creation (nature) and bears with it no redemptive stamp. The other is special revelation. This revelation is called special for at least three reasons. One is that it is directly associated with the Bible. Another is that it takes faith somehow to appropriate it, which faith is not available to all. The third is that its content is in all ways about redeeming dead sinners, reconciling them to God.

I don’t know about you, but I have recently had reason to question (put under a microscope) my own understanding of this special revelation. First, how has it, this special revelation, transpired in my own mind and understanding? Second, as a result of this, I have begun to ask whether this “revealing” that is supposed to have been transpiring has in fact actually done so in my own case. You should not equate this questioning with doubting. This is an entirely different thing. You would think this “revelation” would be a constantly ongoing, astounding, earth shattering thing in one’s “walk”. Or is it just a one-time deposit that you live on. Revelation must be different from learning, mustn’t it? Or is it?

Anyway, stay tuned for a few quick suggestions as to what this revelation is or how it works. Maybe you can identify yours as I try to identify how various people have tried to explain how this works.

  1. What of the fallen-ness of human nature? Is that not somewhat in general revelation? There are certainly any number of secular pessimists out there that have a pretty good understanding of the fallibility of others, and maybe even a few who have a grip on their own.
