Why Does God Hide From Us?
Does God Play Peek-A-Boo With Us Humans?
Here is a new Hub for you all to think about. Have you ever wondered why God hides away from us humans. After all we are God's (Elohim) greatest created achievement, since we are made in their images aren't we, Genesis 1:26-31? If this is so why did the Three Gods make us. They are mentioned in Genesis 1:1 - #1- The Originator - Yahovah the Father who begot Jesus Christ, John 3:16-17; #2 -The Spirit - Genesis 1:2 - The One who conceived Jesus in Mary's womb and will born us into God's Kingdom and hovered over her empty nest the Spirit Ruach HaKadosh the Mother, Matthew 1:18-20, John 3:3-8; #3 - Emmanuel - Genesis 1:26-28, - Yahshua the Word the One who spoke to Moses and inspired him to Write the First five books of the Bible starting in Genesis 1:1-31 and known to us as the Word, who has always existed with the Father and Holy Spirit - John 1:1-3, Genesis 1:1-2, 26.
In the beginning of human life God had direct contact with Adam - man and Adam - woman. However, there came a change in their relationships starting in Genesis 3:1-6, when they were tested by a special subtile serpent, Satan the devil. We know the story how Eve was first deceived and then Adam took willingly of the forbidden fruit. Now the God relationship with them changed from being very much involved to two of the God Beings withdrawing from them directly.
Both Yahovah the Father and Ruach HaKadosh would temporarly withhold direct contact with them and removed Adam and Eve from any contact with Tree of Life, Genesis 3:22-24, which would have given them eternal life. Yahshua the Word would talk directly with them at times and remind them that God's plan for them was still in effect but they would have to endure their new ruler Satan the Devil for a time until they learned the results of not listening to God's perfect "way".
This new ruler, Satan, was against everything the God family stood for, happiness through a direct loving relationship with all Three members of the God Family. Now humans would have to undergo a tough love type of relationship before they could finally be redeemed and reach out again for eternal life. This would mean that they would have to overcome the Devil's nature and sin which would wreck havoc with their new human nature because they took their reasoning from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, Genesis 2:9; 3:1-12.
It didn't take long before humans began to grieve God who regretted that he had made them with free choice, Genesis 6:5. Now most of their reasoning was wicked and would bring sin and death with eternal death their only reward. It would take approximately 6,000 years before God would finally redeem and restore eternal salvation to humankind. God would have to cut the time short or all human life would be annihilated. Matthew 24:21-22. Thank God for Jesus Christ, Genesis 3:15, Matthew 28:18-20. Now our relationship with the God Family will be finally be restored first with the Word, Jesus Christ through the indwelling of Ruach HaKadosh the Holy Spirit, John 3:3-8,1 Corinthians 3:16, Revelation 20:1-4. God has not changed His plans for the sons of Jacob, Israel, the descendants of Abraham nor for the grafting in of the Gentiles, Malachi 3:6, Romans 11:25-26. Jesus the second Adam overcame Satan for us and will destroy him that had power over death, Hebrews 2:14.
Then after the Millenium of 1,000 years, eternal life will be offered to all who did not yet understand God's plan of salvation. Those that chose God's way will also receive life everlasting and then our heavenly Father will come down with the New Heavenly Jerusalem and rule with us forever, Revelation 20:12-15; 21:1-5. No longer will God hide away from us, Dueteronomy 31:16-21, Isaiah 45:14-23, Psalm 13:1, Ezekiel 39:23-29. We will be their children, sons and daughters forever, 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 - And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God has said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty!"
No longer will there be any controversy as to who the members of the Godhead are for they will finally be revealed in all their special awesome identities. One God,Two Gods or Three Gods?There will be no more secrets withheld from us once we put on our new spirit bodies with our new spirit minds. We will then understand who Yahovah the Father is. The One who orignated their plan to produce more new sons and daughters in their images. God the Father still calls people to his family even as He did in the Old and New Testaments. Even though he hides from us mostly in the Old Testament, he was there. In the book of Daniel. He is pictured as the Ancient of Days, who accepts His Sons sacrifice in Daniel 7:13-14, John 20:17, Leviticus 23:10-14. Jesus was made in his Father's image and looks lke him but is a different person who prayed to the Father for us. He did not pray to himself, Matthew 6:1-18. He also was taught directly by his Father and had that sought for Father son relationship because his Father also dwelt in him, John 14:1-16, 23; Malachi 4:6. Jesus revealed the Father to us, and the Father also spoke to humans in the New Testament, Matthew 3:17; 11:27. When all is said and done, the Father will come down and live among us forever with the Son and the Holy Spirit and us the redeemed Israel, Revelation 21:1-3,22; Revelation 22:1,17.
The God who spoke to the Adam and Eve family and then Noah before and after the Flood was the Word, Yeshua, Genesis 3:23; 4:1,13-16; 5:5-6;9:1, He represented the God Family Elohim. He revealed himself to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and took and active role in dealing with the nations at that time. He was the one who changed the languages at the at Tower of Babel, Genesis 11:6-9. He was the one who sent the two angels to Sodom and Gomorrah to rescue Lot and destroyed those evil cities, Genesis 18:1-2,16; 19:1,24.
It was the Word Yahshua who became the God of Israel and delivered the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt, Exodus 3:4-9. Yahshua made a marriage covenant with Israel and became as a husband to Israel or his Church in the Wilderness, Exodus 20:1-20; Isaiah 54:5 and Jeremiah 31:32, Acts 7:38-39. The relationship between them was very hectic because Israel was forever breaking the marriage covenant agreement of the Ten Commandments. Finally, the House of Israel was sent into captivity because they continued to break God's Laws and have not returned since. Then 130 years later the House of Judah also was sent into captivity for 70 years for their sins, 2 Kings 23:27, 2 Chronicles 36:20-21. Some of their descendants returned to build the Temple of God in Jerusalem, Ezra 1:2-7; 2:64-65; 5:12-16, so that it would be there when Jesus Christ came on the scene as a human, Ezra 6:15-19, Matthew 1:16-18.
All these centuries right up to our day God has not been sought the way he would have liked us to seek him. From Adam to Noah and from Noah to the children of Israel very few had the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in them. Listen to what Moses had to say about the Israelites of his day. It was Yahshua the God of Israel who led the Children of Jacob - Israel to make of them a great nation, and kept them as the apple of His eye. It was also Ruach HaKadosh that worked with them as a Mother Eagle beareth them on her wings, Dueteronomy 32:10-11, Genesis 1:2. Yahshua blessed them above all nations of the earth and took them from being slaves to being a people of his own to ride on the high places of the earth but Israel would not completely obey him but continued to go astray and follow the false gods around them. Therefore, Yahshua hid his face from them because they were a rebellious forward people in whom there was no faith, Dueteronomy 32:20-21. God then sent curses on them to try them to see if any would repent on their own free will.
There were certain ones that God worked with like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Moses. But even Moses made a mistake and did not listen to God's instructions at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, Dueteronomy 32:51. Then came Joshua who had the Holy Spirit of Wisdom laid on him before Moses died, Duereronomy 34:9. Joshua did not drive out all the nations out of the Promised land as he was instructed to do and those nations became snares to the people of Israel. Then there came the Judges that were used to deliver Israel from it's enemies when they repented of their sins.
Then came the dynasty of kings, which the children of Israel yearned for and rejected Yahshua as their King in the days of Samuel, 1 Samuel 3:7-21 and 1 Samuel 8:4--7. Very few of Israel's kings obeyed God perfectly, not even king David nor his son Solomon. Though David and Solomon had the Holy Spirit in them, Psalm 51:11, 1 Kings 3:7-12,28; Proverbs 1:8,20-23, they made terrible mistakes that caused Israel much suffering. Later after Solomon died the nation of Israel became divided into two different nations; The House of Israel and the House of Judah. The House of Israel never did have any kings that obeyed God and Yahshua cast them out of Israel at the hands of their enemies. The House of Judah had a few kings that were righteous like king Hezekiah and Josiah but eventually the House of Judah also was run out of the land of Israel because of their sins.
After all these centuries of witnessing to the nations and even God's own chosen nation Israel through Yahshua, they had not listened in spite of all the wonderful things God did for them. Finally, God the Father, Yahovah, sent Yahshua in the form of a human child to grow up among the remnant of the Tribe of Judah in Israel. He became known to us as Emmanuel, Yahshua, Jesus the Christ who would die for our sins and finally would redeem many from their sins. All these years God has at times hid from us because of our evil ways, and still does and will continue to do so until Jesus Christ returns the second time to redeem all humans that choose to follow God and keep his Commandments.
Even now Jesus Christ, Yahshua hides from us as he sits next to the Father in heaven waiting for that Day of the Lord, when his Father says go redeem my children Israel, Matthew 24:21-22,27-31; Revelation 11:1-15, Revelation 19:7,11-21; 20:1-4,11--15, Romans 11:26-27. Wow, when all is said and done Jesus Christ will save us and no longer hide away from us, Psalm 13:1; 89:46; Isaiah 45:15-19. Jesus Christ revealed both the Father to us and Ruach HaKodesh the Holy Spirit, John 14:6-7, John 5:19-47, John 3:3-8,16-17, Revelation 1:3-10. Do you believe Yahshua, Jesus Christ, Emmanuel or not?
The Holy Spirit is also a special person of the Elohim Godhead. Why some Christian Churches try to say that the Spirit is not a person of the deity of God is amazing. There are Christians that believe that God is only one person playing three roles of Father, Son and Holy Spirit are much like those that believe in only two Gods. They come from the similar teaching of Dr. Arius' one God knowledge (Unitarian) or some of his discipes that were Semi-Arians or Binitarians, of two God knowledge. Then there are those that use the knowledge of the Gnostics two (Simon Magus)or three Gods or Trinity that comes from the Valentinus' Gnostic teachings in 160 A.D. ,that wormed its way into Christianity. What they all need to give heed to are the teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets of the Old Testament along with the apostles of God in the New Testament. The Holy Spirit should be the one most easily to be believed but instead She is hard for many to understand since the time of Adam and Eve were cut off from the Tree of Life in Genesis 3:22-24.
Moses wrote about Her in Genesis 1:2 and Duetronomy 32:12 as a Mother Eagle that hovered over her empty nest .She is then pictured with Her new eaglets, Israel, carrying them on her wings as She did at the Exodus when She worked beside Yahshua in Exodus 19:4 and helped delivered Israel. It is sin that causes the Holy Spirit to also hide away from those that do not believe in her, Isaiah 63:10. Of all people to believe would be Jesus Christ, who became God in the flesh and died so that we could receive the Holy Spirit and finally be born of the Spirit, Ruach HaKadosh, John 3:3-8, Acts 7:51. Jesus was there, but the so called men of knowledge, refute our Saviour's perfect knowledge that comes from wisdom and understanding, Matthew 15:7-9; Proverbs 1:7-9,20-23, Isaiah 11:2.
Here in Proverbs 1, we should see and hear the Holy Spirit speaking to us through Solomon, are you listening ? Or do you also refute these inspired words of Mother Wisdom in the writings of the prophet Solomon, Proverbs 1:8; Romans 8:1-4. If you cannot comprehend what is being told to you here then this is a major reason the Holy Spirit hides from you and those so called men of knowledge of good and evil. Even as the apostle Peter wrote of the Apostle Paul's writing which are sometimes hard to understand, These wise men could not even understand the simple teachings of Solomon and wrested them to their distruction, 2 Peter 3:14-18, Proverbs 1:23-33. All instruction from God is given to us for our own good, reproof and correction, 2 Timothy 3:16-17. But fools despise this kind of Knowledge that came from Jesus Christ in person and now by the Holy Spirit in person, Proverbs 1:7,22-28, John 16:13-14.
There are two different types of wisdom. The wisdom of God and the wisdom of ther world. From Godly wisdom comes knowledge and understanding from the tree of life. Worldly wisdom is a struggle to learn about life and death from other humans and this worlds devilish systems or by the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Genesis 2:16-17, Revelation 12:9. Godly wisdom is from God and tells us how to have life and avoid eternal death. Godly wisdom is to those that are perishing foolishness. This is why Gnosticism or worldly knowledge is of the world and seems to be right but leads many astray through this false teachings of men, 1 Corinthians 1:17-27. We need to glory in Jesus Christ because God the Father doesn't call very many of the wise of this world, 1 Corinthians 1:28-31. There is a time when all will be called, Revelation 20:11-15.
The apostle Paul did not come preaching in the wisdom of men but in the Spirit of power or Holy Spirit, 1 Corinthians 2:1-4, Zechariah 4:6. God reveals real wisdom and knowledge so we can have the understanding of who the Holy Spirit is and can be taught by Her, 1 Corinthians 2:10-14. If you are having a problem with understanding who the Holy Spirit Ruach HaKodesh is, it may be because you may think the Holy Spirit is not a person and will not let her teach you who She is. If you will not believe Jesus to start with, John 3:3-8, then how will you understand Paul or any of the other apostles or prophets.
You may not yet have the mind of Christ to believe what the Spirit says to you, 1 Corinthians 2:15-16, Isaiah 11:2-5. At this point you need to keep asking, seeking and knocking for that spiritual wisdom and understanding through faith is needed to believe, Matthew 7:7-8; James 1:5--6. You may still be carnal minded and following the wisdom of this world even though you seem wise about a Gnostic knowledge of God which is of this world. Remember the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, 1 Corinthians 3:18-23, Matthew 28:19-20.
We need the wisdom that comes from God. "Happy is the man or woman that finds Godly Wisdom and the persons that gets understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver,and the gain thereof of fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a Tree of Life to all them that lay hold upon her: happy is everyone that retainth her," Proverbs 3:13-18. Mother Wisdom is the one who helps us to keep God's Laws, Proverbs1:8;6:20; Romans 8:2.
Of the Three Beings that now make up the God Family name of Elohim, Ruach HaKadosh is the one that plays Peek-A-Boo with us the most. Especially to those now called to understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Down through the ages and in the past and present she has been known as the Spirit, Holy Spirit, an Eagle, El Shaddi the God with Breast, Dove, Finger of God, Cloven Tongues of Fire, Flo or A Mighty River of Living Water, Zion travailed, Mother Jerusalem above, One who Grieves for her children, the Church or Bride where She dwells in the Temple, Grace, Conceiver, the Spirit of Life, Law of the Spirit, Intercessor, Spirit of Righteousness, Spirit of First Fruits, Councilor, Comforter, Teacher, Spirit of Truth, A Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars and many more names that discribe Her Holiness as Ruach HaKadosh.
Still there are many that cannot understand Her personal Holiness to this day even on Mothers Day. Usually Quakers, Methodist and some Pentecostals and Messianics and some 7th Day people understand who She is. Even Martin Luther and the Old Catholic Church did. Of course Satan has many counterfeits such a Semiramus, Isis, Ishtar, Diana, Artimus, Helen, "he", "It" and many more goddesses with such names used and substituted by Satan to deceive us.
Don't give up on the Holy Spirit, Ruach HaKadosh - Mother, She will be present in the Millenium with Jesus and all the holy angels and saints .No longer will she play peek-a-boo and hide from us but we will see her as She is, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Hebrews 10:15-20, Revelation 12:1; 22:17. Are you ready! Are you Getting set! Are you willing individual Temples for Her, Jesus and Our heavenly Father, 1 Corinthians 3:16, John 14:23. Are you behaved and quieted as a child that is weaned of his or her Mother; is your soul even as a weaned child who's hope is in Jesus Christ's return, Psalm 131:1-3? If you still do not understand then ask again for more wisdom and Ruach HaKadosh will intercede and help you to have more faith, Romans 8:26, James 1:5.
There are two interesting books that can increase your understanding about just who Ruach HaKodesh is? You can find a copy of "Holy Spirit - Mother.....Because God is Family," by Walesia Robinson Cates, M.D.. Discover concealed Bible truths for healing family, marriage and gender relations!

Smith, who Lends sensitivity and clarity to an often confusing debate about language for God. You should be able to find a copy at Christians For Biblical Equality; Check our link or try Amazon.com.
