God rarely (if ever) simply imparts knowledge to
people unless they are being asked to speak on his behalf (as in the case of
prophets). The promise is, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door will be opened. This implies action, rather than a passive
request for enlightenment. Ultimately,
however, it is God who supplies the will with the grace that results in
faith. But in order for this occur,
one’s rebellion against him must cease.
