General Revelation is one of the ways God has chosen to reveal Himself to humanity.
General Revelation is defined as the ongoing, constant commutation of God’s truth through the medium of the creation. This truth can be commutated in various ways but one of the prominent ways God communicates to us through General Revelation is through His complex creation.
Thus showing that God is the creator and in control of all things. Paul writes in Romans that all creation is without excuse through Gods revelation of himself through nature, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20).
Through God’s complex and beautiful creation and discovery of new things,s people can come to know who God is. As a result, no one may have an excuse for who God is. However, things that cannot be known by General Revelation are things that are any specific message directed to a particular person or at a particular time.
This can be seen throughout scripture when God communicates to the prophets. The book of John, states how the law in the Old Testament was given through God to Moses. The author writes “For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17). Even though this revelation came from God, it was not General Revelation since it came through a particular person at a particular time. As a result, this shows owing that General Revelation is not God directly communicating to humans, yet it is what can be seen through God’s universe and creation.
