The Bible was written like no other book in the whole world. No one will
be able to understand it unless God want him to understand it.
E.1. Why is it impossible
for men to know God by means of their own wisdom?
In the following verses, these
For God in His wisdom made it
impossible for people to know Him by means of their own wisdom. (1 Cor.
This truth is
corroborated by the following verses:
always learning and
never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:7 NKJV
"so that `seeing they may see
and not perceive, and hearing they may hear and not understand; . . .
. . . '' Mark 4:12, NKJV
For God in His wisdom made it
impossible for people to know Him by means of their own wisdom.
E.2 How will the Lord God
His mysterious secret to men?
Apostle Paul further
explains, in 1 Corinthian 2:10, this is written:
"Thus God has, through the Spirit,
let us share His secret. For nothing is hidden from the Spirit, not even the
deep wisdom of God." (Phillips Modern English Bible)
The same verse in another version of the Bible:
But we know these things
because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit, and his Spirit searches
out everything and shows us even God's deep secrets. (New Living
Not "by means of
their own wisdom," but "through the Spirit." Without
the inspiration of the Holy Spirit - nobody or no one will be able to understand the
secret or mystery of God's word.
E.3 Who will not
receive the things or messages from God's Spirit?
In 1 Corinthian 2:14, this is
But the natural man does not
receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him;
nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (NKJV)
The same verse in other Versions of the Bible:
A person who isn't spiritual doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit,
for they are nonsense to him. He can't understand them because they
are spiritually evaluated.
An uninspired person does
not receive messages from God's Spirit. To him, they are without meaning;
he cannot understand them. They can only be understood in a Spiritual way.
The natural man or a person who is not
spiritual or a person who is not inspired by God's Spirit will not receive the things of the Spirit of God.
For they are
nonsense or foolishness or without meaning to him.
is the reason? Because, they are spiritually evaluated or discerned
or understood in a spiritual way.
E.4 Who will be able to
understand the wisdom God written in the Bible?
How can one received the things of the Spirit of God?
The following verses will give us the
"If you then, being evil,
know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your
heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!'' Luke 11:13,
Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will
teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things
that I said to you. John 14:26, NKJV
The Father in heaven will
give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him and the Holy Spirit will teach all
Let us therefore open our
heart and our mind and earnestly pray to the heavenly Father to send us the Holy
Spirit, that we will be inspired and moved to understand the mystery of His
words written in the Holy Bible.
