Salvation is by revelation
Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. However if you are disobedient to the truth God speaks to you, hearing His truth profits you nothing. When the wise men enquired where the Christ was to be born, the scribes and pharisees told them correctly that it was in Bethlehem, as it is written, "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.' (Micah 5:2). They knew God's Word but did not go to worship the Child, because His birth was not revealed to them.
