Today, reply is on the divine provisions for mankind to have complete and correct knowledge of divinity. In the same way displaying existence and life describe all created beings and living creatures, all the living possess awareness and an indelible innate consciousness of divine fullness (i.e., divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). The living are granted a primal and rudimentary knowledge of GOD that is to become elaborated, focused and refined through instruction, maturation, sanctification, and suffering. GOD is known to mankind by continuing as active presence manifest in spirit process and substance. Sacred knowledge may be acquired as prophecy and edification; and otherwise hidden truth is revealed and discovered through gradual growth, learning, discernment, practice, and study. It is written: 1st Corinthians 2: 12-14, King James Version (KJV): 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion & Spirituality who uses the ID “Princess” (Level 5 with 8,026 points) posted the following:

 

If a child was never told about things like “gods” but was given a strictly skeptical and scientific education, would that child …?

… “find god” eventually on his own?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (Proverbs 4: 7, KJV)

Princess”, GOD is known by divine spirit process and substance. Most mature Christian believers will agree that acquiring sacred knowledge and a mature consciousness of divinity are accomplished through multiple sacred devices and operations. Included are all mankind being endowed with a measure of the same life essence (breath; spirit; utterance; word) from the makeup of GOD that was imparted to the first pair (Adam); the appearance of divinity on the earth using human form and life process as Jesus Christ; water baptism wherein a person’s inborn spirit dies, is buried, and is raised from the dead (we say, they become born again); receipt by the living of a fresh endowment of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD (e.g., faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, wisdom, wrath against sin); and the multiple possibilities of an inheritance as the new creation established through the ministry of Jesus Christ. The natural world as our sphere of life is a sacred expression from divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Even so, mankind relies heavily on the finite tools of intellect, logic, carnal reason, science, and self-will (willpower). Academic studies and secular knowledge do not permit complete and correct knowledge of divinity. The operations of sin that oppose the continued existence of sacred law also promote a return to the conditions of preexistence, and challenge the integrity of the divine order that appears as the universe. Sin disrupts and undermines mechanical process and sequence, and therefore, results in evil (catastrophe) and upheaval. Our human potential for self-expression can be displayed in behavior that is animal, human or godly, for the earth and we ourselves bear the image and marks of GOD as our Creator. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a music selection from the music ministry of Wintley Phipps:

(1.) Psalms 19: 1-5, King James Version (KJV): 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

(2.) 1st John 4: 7-9, KJV: 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

(3.) Romans 1: 18-23, KJV: 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CB-NT-vCzVk.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
