Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

How’d He Do That? Special Revelation:

Special revelation is a means by which God lets us know Him that far surpasses general revelation. The clearest and best known aspect of this means is Jesus of Nazareth.

Because of love, God became human (John 1:1,14).

I’ve said that we cannot be fit to lead until we’ve lived the life of those whom we intend to lead. This God did for us by “taking the very nature of a servant . . . being found in appearance as a man” (Phil. 2:7,8). Jesus said, “He who has seen me has seen Father God” (John 14:10). Jesus requires no supplement. He is “the exact representation of God’s being” (Hebrews 1:3).

Jesus is the best example of special revelation by which God has made Himself known to us. If you're not sure what Creator God is like, look to Jesus.
