You have heard these things: look at them all.
Will you not admit them? From now on I will
tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown
to you.

Isaiah 48:6 (NIV)

And so the unknown God to the sinner
becomes the known God to the Saint
due to a penitent heart for personal sin,
due to eyes blinded but now opened wide to see
the blessed, anguished, beautiful, horrible Cross of Calvary
where the Savior bore our sins upon a tree.
and it is only when the gift of salvation is freely received
that the redeemed soul can truly celestially see.

For it is only by the gift of faith through Christ
that the unknown is now known, the unseen is now seen,
and the old heart is made completely new, perfectly
gloriously and celestially white as new fallen glistening snow!
