There are no secrets with God.

Prov. 15:11  Even the depths of Death and Destruction are known by the LORD.  How much more does he know the human heart!

We don’t know what it is like to die.  It’s  a once in a lifetime experience for us.  There are no do-overs.  We will live on, but in a totally different way than what we have known.  Death is a mystery to us.  God tells us some things to expect, but until we live it we will not know what it is like.  What we do know is that God knows.  He knows everything there is to know about death, all the glories of heaven and all the goriness of hell.

Every human being who has ever lived has been warned by God about death and destruction.  He has ingrained in the human soul a sense of right and wrong.  He holds each of us responsible for the knowledge we have been given.  God purposely forbade Adan and Eve from eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge because He knew that man would not be able to handle the knowledge of good and evil.  He knew that because of man’s nature once he knew what sin was like he would gravitate towards sin and fall prey to it.  God tried to spare them, and us, the horrors of such knowledge, but obviously they would not listen. 

There are no secrets with God.  He knows every thought of the mind.  He knows every intent of the heart.  He knows what moves us to say and what we do.  The Lord knows it all.  Do not be decieved by those who would deny it.  Do not be deceived by the foolishness of thinking that you can hide your thoughts from Him.  What controls your mind comes from your heart and He holds you responsible for what He finds there.

Dear friend, you can fool people and you can even fool yourself, but you can’t fool God.
