God’s knowledge is boundless; goes beyond boardrooms, and yet not boisterous. His understanding is neither calculable nor callous. His wisdom is not tethered on a stick and does not stifle the stiff-necked. No time and space can circumvent Him. He is the circumference and the centre of knowledge. He is the antithesis of weakness. He has made Himself known sufficiently, but not exhaustedly. Yeah! Through creation, through conscience, through the historical Jesus, through scripture, through the church, through miracles.
A fool thinks tomorrow belongs to him and he does not realise God can claim his soul overnight.
God understands the yore for He is the Alpha. He knows the eternity for He is Omega. He knows the today for He is, ‘I AM’. He is Omniscient. Can anyone teach God knowledge, since He judges those on high? The God who has been presented to you is probably a strawman. So what you could be rejecting is a strawman god and not Yahweh.
“To say that God is omniscient is to say that He possesses perfect knowledge and therefore has no need to learn. But it is more: it is to say that God has never learned and cannot learn.”
However, there is also a certain kind of knowledge that does not emanate from God. It is the knowledge that swells up. It rejects that God came in flesh. It disputes that God died and rose to save mankind. It denies humankind is fallen and in need of a Savior. It maintains that human beings can differentiate right from wrong without a Moral reference. It claims that humanity is perfect. It says humankind can redeem self. It says that Christ did not die on the Cross but another chap died on his behalf. It teaches that evil and good are subjective and even illusory. This is the kind of knowledge that puffs up.
We are living in the 21st Century. A century of heightened humanism, atheism, Gnosticism and agnosticism. A century with elevated activities of multiple religions and bizarre religious practices. All these seem to point you in the right direction. But, there is only one man in history who said: “I AM THE WAY, TRUTH AND LIFE”. To utter these compelling words, Jesus must have been either self-important, pretty snobbish, deranged, or Lord and Savior. Paul, Peter, John, Stephen and other followers of the 1st Century must have been nuts to jeopardise their lives for a daft, or a man who fled the cross and another man crucified in his behalf. They must have been amok to take stripes and difficult lives for a man who did not resurrect from the dead. They must have been hallucinating all their lives. Josephus and other prominent secular historians of the day must have been high on some stuff to mention someone in their writings who never existed. They must have been mentally impaired to record things that never occurred. The stories about Pontius Pilate, Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Herod the Great, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Leonidas, Socrates, Plato, Nebuchadnezzar, Aristotle, Vasco da Gama, Vikings, etc are just fabrications and people who wrote the accounts of these guys were hallucinating at best and at worst madcap. Perhaps they are just myths. So why bother believing them? In the gospels, Jesus asks, “Who do you say that I am?” You have the answer.
