Not With The Wisdom Of Men, But By The Power Of God!
“And I brethren. When I came to you, came not with excellence of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 2: 1-5.
We do not come to know God through education, or the study of philosophy, or the study of science, or through logical reasoning. We cannot speak of God and describe God by excellence of speech or worldly wisdom. Only by yielding, and listening to the invisible, intangible, supernatural Holy Spirit of God can we know God. The Holy Spirit reveals to us the hidden secrets and mysteries of God when we have believed and received Christ as our own personal Savior, and are submitted to him and listening to him.
The human eye has not, and will never see the things that God has prepared for them that love him.
The human ear has never heard the voice of God the Father. The human mind cannot comprehend the things of God. We cannot learn of God by listening to the profound philosophies of learned men, nor can we purchase a knowledge of God from any university. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthian; 2: 9. 10.
The love of God is the key that opens the door of our hearts and invites the Holy Spirit to come in and abide and teach., A deep seated love for the Lord Jesus Christ, and a deep sense of gratitude for his finished work for our salvation sets the human spirit free to commune with the Holy spirit, and we are carried to lofty heights of knowledge and the revelation of who God is, and the things which he has prepared for his children. To be a child of God is to be born of the Spirit and indwelt by the Spirit of God.
The things that God has prepared for those that love him are revealed unto us only by his Spirit.
“For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” 1 Corinthians 2: 11, 12.
No man can speak truly of God in the words of man's wisdom. By excellence of speech and polished mannerisms can no man declare the glories of the risen Christ. We can declare the beauties and truth of the Holy God only as the Holy Spirit give us utterance. “Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2: 13-16.
Spiritual things are foolishness to natural people. One must be “born again” and become a spiritual unnatural person to know God. Born again children of God are capable of knowing the mind of Christ through the Holy Spirit.
The bible says that: “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God, they are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doerth good, no not one.” Psalm14: 1-3.
A man or a woman, or a boy or a girl remains a worldly fool, according to the word of God, until he or she realizes the truth of God's word that he or she is a sinner, and is eternally lost and without knowledge until he or she acknowledges that we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God, and ask for forgiveness and receives Christ as Savior.
Many educated fools, according to God's description are teaching our children in the public schools, the theories of evolution, that man is a mutation of some lower form of life; that man is just an animal, and cannot be held accountable for any moral standards set by a higher authority. Is it any wonder then, that our children act and behave like jungle animals, and carry guns, and knives to school and mutilate and murder each other to solve their problems, when they are brainwashed by these educated ( or non educated) fools?
We are told that wise men sought him at the stable in Bethlehem. Some wise men still seek him today in America.
How about you? Are you a wise man or fool?
