I will teach you from the past

RevelationFor those who exclude God and his revelation, history makes no sense, so man invents his theories and explanations. This way, one man’s interpretation is as good as another’s.

… I will speak to you in a parable.
I will teach you hidden lessons from our past.
Psalm 78:2 NLT

Many today consider such language as the psalmist’s arrogant. Who is he, frail and weak human that he is, to explain the past to others?

The truths and secrets of the past, today revealed by God about his work in the world, can be explained and taught. They are not difficult nor are they some private interpretation. They are facts, commandments, promises, and stories that God himself reveals.

The Lord expects us to be faithful in the teaching and in practicing them as the church of Christ Jesus.
