THE SPIRIT OF REVELATION

"...that He may grant you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation (of insight into mysteries and secrets) in the (deep and intimate) knowledge of Him" - Ephesians 1:17 AMPC
.
Knowing God will take a man more than his lifetime to discover a minute dimension of God's existence. No man, dead or alive has ever grasped everything about God. But to know God in whichever dimension He chose to reveal Himself to you, you need the Spirit of revelation. 
.
The Holy Spirit was sent to reveal the Father to us, to teach us all things and guide us into all truths. But does everyone who is spirit filled have a deep and intimate knowledge of God? No!
.
Why you won't have insight into the mysteries and secrets about God and His things is because you do not FELLOWSHIP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
.
The Holy Spirit is not just a spirit, He is a person that speaks, that feels and react. Fellowship is better understood when you use the word 'communion' which means intimate fellowship. Going to church doesn't mean you fellowship with Him, fellowship means personal.
.
God relates with men through the prophets in the OT, Jesus related directly with His disciples in the NT during His earthly days but the Holy Spirit relates with the believers through fellowship and not religious act.
.
Doing things religiously as Christians is not the same as fellowshiping with the Holy Spirit. A religious Christian's experience lacks the life of the Father, he doesn't relate with the Holy Spirit as a person neither does he acknowledge Him as a companion.
.
Revelation comes in the place of fellowship. Moreover, the benefits of fellowship is not instantaneously felt, it is gradual. Fellowshiping with the Holy Spirit takes time just as it takes time to bond with your lover but the day He takes the full possession of your spirit, this marks the beginning of your supernatural breakthrough and He begins to reveal mysteries in the Word and your life to you.
