No Secrets

“The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.”  (Psalm 33:10-11 NIV)

The former American president left his aircraft to climb aboard the jet of the U.S. Attorney General. Having appointed her while president to her federal judge post, they were old friends. The area was sealed by federal agents. No cameras or recording devices were permitted. The public was to remain unaware that the two had ever met.

The meeting lasted less than a half hour. Fourteen days later, it was evident more had been discussed than golf and grandchildren: The A.G. closed the case against the ex-president’s very high profile wife. Also, the FBI invoked a special secrecy agreement on their investigators. From the top, the way was cleared for the accused former Secretary of State to move onto other business–like running for president.

In 2nd Kings 6:8, the king of Aram was at war with Israel. He ordered his commanders to set up camp in a certain place, but when they did the Israelites avoided his trap. Each surprise attack attempt failed. The enraged king was certain he had a traitor in his inner circle. He demanded, “Will you not tell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”

“None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” (6:12)

There was a prophet in Israel (cf. 2 Kings 5:3). He had special knowledge of what the king said in secret and was giving it to his king. Nothing was hidden from Elisha, because with the Lord there are no secrets.

Our Sovereign God has no secrets about his strategy. He openly declares his plans to his prophets (Amos 3:7).  Before the Lord acts he announces in His Word what he is going to do (Isaiah 42:9).

As far as keeping secrets from God, the entire idea is folly. “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:13)

No audio recording devices, no cameras taking video or snapping pictures, nothing to capture the sights or sounds of a deal struck in private; still what is whispered in the secret place will be shouted from the housetops (cf. Luke 12:3). When we stand before God, we will all give an account for every careless word (cf. Matthew 12:36-37).

“A wicked man accepts a bribe in secret to pervert the course of justice.” (17:23) 

As for you Madame Secretary, your husband, Madame Attorney General, and your ilk who cloak deeds in darkness, “…would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart? (Psalm 44:21)

  1. There are those who scoff that God is raising up prophets today. However, God uses the prophetic office to expose the false teachers. Today’s prophet will expose ungodly world leaders. The message will be the same as in days of old. Repent, turn to the Lord of Hosts or a nation will be brought down. God will raise up enemies against those who reject His reign.

    Those, like our presidential hopeful have time to repent but just like Jezebel, she is on a path of denial and thus her judgment will be great and tragic. America must wake up and beg for forgiveness on this once great nation.
