In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. Luke 10:21-22
Here we see a very beautiful moment, not just because Jesus is praying to The Father, but also because its the Triune God coming together. The Son rejoiced in the Holy Spirit talking to The Father, what a powerful moment. And the relationship that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have is not only mysterious, but very personal.
What was revealed here? That God revealed his wisdom to the “least of these” and not to the religious leaders. Why? Because of their lack of faith, because of their pride, because God is sovereign and can do whatever he wants. The Triune God was revealed to the fisherman, and to the tax collector, and to the prostitute, those who humbled themselves, repented , and believed on Jesus Christ as Lord
And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Luke 10:23-24
Think about all the prophets and patriarchs that wished to see the Messiah, and Christ was standing right before them at that moment. Throughout the Old Testament, since the promise of the Messiah in Genesis, Israel looked forward to the coming of Christ. However when Christ came, most of Israel rejected Jesus because their hearts were hardened and their ears were closed
But Christ’s Apostles were the chosen ones, they not only seen the Messiah, but lived and experienced with Him. They heard the teachings of God directly from God. They seen the miracles that Christ performed, they saw the Messianic Prophecies being fulfilled. Most importantly they witnessed the death and resurrection of Jesus, who gave us eternal life
From a worldly perspective it didn’t appear that the Apostles were blessed. They were persecuted, they had no money or possessions, and ultimately they died for their faith. But from a Heavenly perspective, they were very blessed, not only did they get to experience and witnesses , everything many generations longed to see, but their names were written in Heaven forever Amen!
