The process is God-driven and really quite simple. Revelation arrives within, and recognition and acceptance occur. It is like a seed planted in the good earth. Over time, the seed sprouts, grows, and bears fruit.
Man's will plays no part in the expression of God whatsoever. If it did, even a little bit, the result would be corrupt. "A little leaven leavens the whole lump".
Jesus said, "You are the light of the world ... a city set on a hill cannot be hid ... let your light so shine before men ..."
After saying we are the light of the world AND this light cannot be put out, Jesus then says, "Let your light so shine before men ...". The question becomes, therefore, what is meant by "let"? Is "let" something we do, say, or think? No, "let" is recognition and acceptance.
Recognition and acceptance are built into the new creation. When revelation arrives, recognition and acceptance "kick in" automatically. And the glorious process begins.
