The Wisdom of this World is Foolishness with God

Written by Michael Bradley

Once you start to receiverepparttar knowledge and wisdom of God flowing into your life - you will find something very interesting that will start to happen. You'll start to seerepparttar 148283 difference betweenrepparttar 148284 knowledge and wisdom of God versusrepparttar 148285 knowledge and wisdom of this world.

You'll see that God is always right and that man is always wrong whenrepparttar 148286 two are on opposites sides ofrepparttar 148287 fence. A perfect example isrepparttar 148288 abortion issue - where you haverepparttar 148289 people who are pro-choice and their arguments versusrepparttar 148290 people who are pro-life with their arguments. From God's point of view - it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see who is onrepparttar 148291 wrong side ofrepparttar 148292 fence on this issue.

As you will see inrepparttar 148293 two verses I will list below -repparttar 148294 Bible tells us thatrepparttar 148295 wisdom of this world is "foolishness with God." Since God is all-perfect in His being and in His knowledge - that obviously means that God is always right and man andrepparttar 148296 world is always wrong when they are not onrepparttar 148297 same page. Sorepparttar 148298 first thing you will need to get worked into you is that God, all of His ways and all of His knowledge is always right. You will really need to ground on this becauserepparttar 148299 wisdom ofrepparttar 148300 world can be very enticing at times. You will be tempted into believing whatrepparttar 148301 world has to say instead of believing what God is trying to tell you is right.

Our young teenagers are constantly battling this reality. They are constantly being tempted and enticed to get into drugs, heavy drinking and pre-marital sex. If they have not been grounded inrepparttar 148302 Word and in their faith from a good Christian upbringing by their parents - they can be easily swayed to enter into some of this dark side activity.

You will start to seerepparttar 148303 difference between God's knowledge and how He likes to operate versusrepparttar 148304 business world in general. Many in corporate America are constantly pushingrepparttar 148305 envelope trying to get as far as they, get as much as they can and not caring who they run over and hurt inrepparttar 148306 process. The almighty dollar is their god and they will do anything and everything to make more of it. Many Christians get sucked up into some of these unscrupulous practices and thus end up going against God Himself by some ofrepparttar 148307 shady things they end up doing.

Each Christian has to stay true to His God and His ways when they are faced with these kind of temptations. Study these next two verses very carefully as they really do setrepparttar 148308 stage as to what is going on inrepparttar 148309 spiritual realm when you comparerepparttar 148310 knowledge of God versusrepparttar 148311 knowledge of this world.

The Holy Spirit is our Teacher

Written by Michael Bradley

Now that we know God and Jesus want to release Their knowledge direct to us from Their throne room in heaven - how is this knowledge actually transmitted to us? This will now bring us intorepparttar next set of Scripture verses.

These next three verses will tell us that this knowledge is given torepparttar 148282 Holy Spirit - and thenrepparttar 148283 Holy Spirit, who is already living onrepparttar 148284 inside of us, will berepparttar 148285 one to transmit all of this knowledge to us! The Holy Spirit will thus become your personal guide and personal teacher in this life. It will be His job to impart and transmit all of this knowledge direct to you once you start to seek after it.

Here are three powerful verses from Scripture showing us thatrepparttar 148286 Holy Spirit will berepparttar 148287 one to transmitrepparttar 148288 knowledge of God direct to us.

  1. "But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. Forrepparttar 148289 Spirit searches all things, yes,repparttar 148290 deep things of God. For what man knowsrepparttar 148291 things of a man exceptrepparttar 148292 spirit ofrepparttar 148293 man which is in him? Even so no one knowsrepparttar 148294 things of God exceptrepparttar 148295 Spirit of God. Now we have received, notrepparttar 148296 spirit ofrepparttar 148297 world, butrepparttar 148298 Spirit who is from God, that we might knowrepparttar 148299 things that have been freely given to us by God." (1 Corinthians 2:10)
  2. "Butrepparttar 148300 Helper,repparttar 148301 Holy Spirit, whomrepparttar 148302 Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you." (John 14:26)
  3. "However, when He,repparttar 148303 Spirit of truth, has come, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH ..." (JOHN 16:13)
The very first verse laysrepparttar 148304 foundation when it says that no one knowsrepparttar 148305 things of God exceptrepparttar 148306 Holy Spirit - and thatrepparttar 148307 Holy Spirit has been given to each and every one of us in order to revealrepparttar 148308 things that God wants to reveal to us. In other words, it isrepparttar 148309 job ofrepparttar 148310 Holy Spirit to releaserepparttar 148311 knowledge of God direct to us!

The second verse confirmsrepparttar 148312 first verse when it says thatrepparttar 148313 Holy Spirit will be our teacher and that He will "teach us all things." Noticerepparttar 148314 word "all" - that He will teach us "all things."

Think about what is being said in this verse. This statement being made by God in thatrepparttar 148315 Holy Spirit can teach us all things is a maximum intense statement being made by God. God is telling us that He is willing to go more than overboard in order to teach us things and to transmit His knowledge to us. Thenrepparttar 148316 verse even goes one step further when it says thatrepparttar 148317 Holy Spirit can literally bring back up to your remembrance, when you may need it,repparttar 148318 knowledge that He has already given to you!
