Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father, and how sayest thou then, show us the Father? (John 14:9)

There are folks who say “God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. " To some of them, that expression actually came from the Bible, and that's not true! To think that way about God is to see Him as one mysterious being, who does what he wants when he wants and how he wants. To them, He is an irresistible personality who is beyond comprehension. But God is not that way; He's not mysterious at all.

Jesus proved that God isn't mysterious when he said “he that hath seen me hath seen the Father. " In other words, if you want to know what the father is like, just look at Jesus. The Bible describes Jesus as the brightness of God's glory, and the express image of His person (Hebrew 1:3), and Jesus wasn't mysterious at all.

To be mysterious is to be strange and unpredictable, and Jesus wasn't that way. He was, and still is the perfect representation of the father's personality. He is the word of God made flesh. Thus if you want opt know more about the father, then dig into the Word of God! As you study the word daily, you'll become better acquainted with the Father's personality. As you receive His word into your spirit and mediate at on it, His character will be revealed to you and through you.

Make up your mind to know the Lord; He's a loving caring, thoughtful, patient and merciful Father! A loving person can never be mysterious. Contrary to the perception of many, God is not the One responsible for the things that cause grief, turmoil and panic in the world; those are the acts of the devil. According to the Bible, only good and perfect things come from God (James 1:17)

So don't be deceived by ignorant folks who attribute every disaster and chaos in the world to God. He's a God of love, who is more than willing to reveal Himself opt his kids. He doesn't want anyone to be in the dark regarding His personality, that's why he gave us his word and sent the Holy Spirit to show us who he is.
