If you feel that God has revealed himself to you, that's not really faith anymore, is it? If you've actually seen him? If you feel God, is that faith anymore? If God reveals himself to certain people, then He's playing favorites.
"Well you just have to have faith first and then He'll reveal himself to you."
Then why is there this test anyway? God will just test your faith for a little while...depending on the time the length of time of the test will change?
