Sealing, the goal of knowing and understanding truth!
All things in life have a beginning and ending point, even life itself. Conception then birth begins the process, and ultimately death ends it; unless, of course, the King of the Heavens returns before that fact. Beginnings and endings happen daily in every aspect of life, from waking to sleeping, moving physically from one place to another, friendships and loves won and lost. In this process there is seemingly only one thing that does not follow this pattern and that is learning; once a person starts learning, ideally they will never stop until death.
Does this process apply to Truth? Scripture, especially within the words of Jesus, we have seen that there is a process of learning that appears to have an end point, and that is when a person in life arrives at the end of the process of Sanctification; that is learning the truth about salvation and eternal life.
One text that supports this is found in Daniel: "Many will be purged, purified and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who have insight will understand." Dan. 12:10.
The beginning point is the start of the purging, pruifying, and refining. The end point is understanding.
The question then is ths: Can a person on earth ever fully know all THIS truth?
Jesus has something to say about this in Matthew: "Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master FINDS GOOD ENOUGH to put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time?" Matt. 24:45. The phrase in caps is found in the Jerusalem Bible.
It seems that this Bondservants indeed knows ENOUGH (but not all) he needs to get the household ready for the arrival of the Master. This is encouraging when we think about how much truth there is that we DON'T know, yet we can still be of service to the Kingdom of God.
