Christ Reveals the Hearts of Men 7/10/2011
In Simeon's prophetic word to Mary we find that God has appointed Christ for the "fall and rise of many" and "a sign that is opposed" so that the thoughts from many hearts may be revealed. Jesus came to confront the rebellion of men. Jesus is the Light that exposes the hearts of men. The "thoughts" or "deliberations" of men's hearts are perverted by sin. Concerning the things of God, men will always reach the wrong conclusion without the Scripture and the illumination of the Spirit to guide them.
