 How-E   Who Will Be Able To Understand The Wisdom Of God Written In The Bible

 


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 are written:

For God in His wisdom made it impossible for people to know Him by means of their own wisdom. (1 Cor. 1:21 TEV)

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 impart 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 Translation)

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 further explained:

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. (ISV)

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. (International English)

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.
Why?
For they are nonsense or foolishness or without meaning to him. 
What 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 answer:

"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, NKJV

"But the 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 things.

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.
