Trust in the truth and the truth will reveal itself.
The above saying is a theological law, and like many other philosophical speculations, there is more than one interpretation to it. And it is perhaps possible to judge that no interpretation can ever be refuted. All interpretations discovered under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit must count as correct.
The standard interpretation is that if one were to trust in God by faith, God would reveal himself to him.
Thus one must believe in God before having witnessed his full power or having had proof of it. (John 20:29)
But let us ponder closely at this Bible verse:
Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed. (John 20:29)
I personally cannot accept the existence of a person I have never met.
But perhaps, the flaw in man’s mind is that he sees God as a person, or rather, only a person.
God is not simply a person, he is not a distant acquaintance. He is not a formal relation of ours.
God is the power of good.
God is the power of good men.
Good men, be they even non-religious, have in them a hope, a purpose, a belief that no matter what happens, the power of good will always triumph by the end.
The belief in the infallibility of good can be deemed as quite illogical. Odds are, good should have as many failures as victories. Yet, to this day, I have not seen a single good man who does not hold on his forehead the mark of victory, be he lonely, poor, or dying. Even the death of good men seems a triumph.
And through my life, I have not seen one wicked man who does not bear concealed within him the mark of defeat. For even in all his encounters he is always grim, he hides, he conceals, and he seems to always carry the load of his wickedness on his back, that he may never be truly happy. His death is pitiful and horrible, as he looks back at the life he has lived, he knows he has been defeated by his own self-love. This brings to mind the death of Hitler, for example.
The equation derived from the infallibility of good has one unknown, one mystery, and that mystery is God, the strength of the good.
Just as light always triumphs over darkness, so does good triumph over evil.
God is the power of good men. He is the strength of the peace-makers, the justice-fighters and the joy-spreaders.
Thus we can conclude that no good thing on earth has ever come to be, except through this power of good, God himself.
Just men, intellectuals, often meet God on such paths.
History is full of examples of such great men who, through their devotion to the values of good, started feeling an unknown power working alongside their cause, giving them strength every step of the way, and even though they were mere individuals fighting against an entire world, they still won.
It must be deemed impossible for a single man to defeat the world. There can never be enough strength, psychologically or spiritually, in a single man, to conquer a world infinite times his power. The triumph of justice and equality through men such as Gandhi for example, reveals that men such as he had within them, not their own power, but the power of their values.
And if their values are good, that means that they are driven by the power of good, in other words, Almighty God.
It can be said, therefore, that it was not Gandhi who fought the tyrannical British regime, but rather the universal power of Good, or rather Almighty God, who, through Gandhi, put an end to this global injustice of the time.
This can be held true for numerous other historical events.
To conclude, the just man will often start off a skeptic, questioning God. Although, as he follows his own righteous values, which are derived from God, he will start to recognize the infallibility of his cause, and an enormous power emerging within himself that he never knew he could possess.
This man of justice will then recognize that all throughout, his fight for establishing good in society, was being aided by a hidden power.
Little by little, the truth reveals itself, and he realizes that all this time he was only a soldier in the army of God, that all this time he was fighting for good, he was fighting for God.
And he, a faithful warrior of light, shall dwell in the house of the Lord for evermore.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Matthew 5:9)
At last I say to my readers, be warriors for the power of good, for it will lead you to the revelation of God, all worries then, shall be dwarfed, and you will live in the glory of the victories of good.
And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long. (Psalms 35:28)
