Wisdom and Knowledge of God. Spiritual Gift is given by Yahweh God himself to the people who love him, who are the chosen one, who are called ones and who are Foolish in front of natural man who has not received his Spirit and are spiritually disecerned.
This Wisdom of God has been poured out to the people who love him..If we look into the scriptures, Where Paul described about it in ,1 Corinthians 2:1-4 “And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
For I determined not to know any thing 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:
Here Paul talked about that and mentioning it not the Excellency of speech or wisdom but the testimony what God has revealed to him through the spirit of his wisdom into his people.
Here if we can see Paul mentioned that he is weak and in trembling and fear.
Here is a point which we all need to think that when we are saved and baptized by the holy spirit, at that time God pour out many gifts through his Spirit into us, one can identify himself about these gifts when going into prayers started talking in tongues or his heart and mind is that much of filled ,like overflowing,so at that time that person wants to share his testimony and share what wisdom and knowledge he is been granted through the Spirit of God.
When one can start focusing on God’s words automatically the scriptures he read earlier, which he did not understand, now he can easily understand it and not just understand it but his soul forcing him to reveal what he understands by the wisdom of God among other people.
That’s why what Paul was feeling in the scripture that he was feeling weak and feared and trembled , the same situation goes with us when God asks us to preach the gospel and his words.
At the time of preaching the words which came from our mouth is through the wisdom and knowledge of God, because we maybe not that much of literate or educated but the wisdom of God makes us prepared to talk , there may be people who are more educated sitting and listening in front of us.
As Paul said when he preaches with not enticing words of Man’s wisdom but demonstrating God’s spirit and power.
We have seen so many great Spiritual leaders who preach with the same great power of God.the scripture they explained to us we might read it but at that time we were not able to understand it and not the way that this leader or preacher described it, and it will Leave a great impact on our hearts and we start thinking “Oh I have not look into this scripture in that way”.
That’s what I call a wisdom of God, this is absolutely my way of understanding.not pointing out anybody’s understanding.
I would like to share a small incident related to this, I used to read Psalm 23, as a normal man.whenever I feared or facing worldy problems.
One day I have got a video of one Leader and Preacher Brother Vinod.he came into the faith from other religion,
The way he described the Psalm 23 was amazing.. the way he described it through the spirit and power of God.
In Psalm 23:1 it’s written “ The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want.whereas shall is a future tense…but what about present …We humans are more worried about our future and forget those which are there in present .he says we should understand it that what God wants us to say, he has given us a house, food on our table, job to fulfill family needs, and a fine family….isn’t enough and God’s blessings what we have at present, if we refine our today it automatically reform tomorrow.God wants us to understand it Hebrew 3:15 “While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.”
So We must say The Lord is my Shepherd and I have no shortage…it’s a kind of satisfaction when this satisfaction comes into your heart you will start forgetting about future, as you never know what future holds for you and God holds the present and the future…both.
God reveled also the hidden wisdom on his people.
Paul says that our faith should not stand according to man’s wisdom or worldy wisdom but God’s power and faith.
It’s a worldly wisdom in those people who crucified Christ, because inspite of revealing and talked about his image Those people did not understand they did not understand that God himself spoken to them, Heal them have shown enourmous miracles which no man can did…even after that they don’t understand it because they were talking on man’s wisdom, if they have wisdom of God they would not crucified Christ which Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:8.
This is Purely Wisdom and Spirit of God’s power which was on Paul because the way he preached and explained us about what is God expectations from his people….if we look into the scripture How beautifully Jesus described himself as the Wine of life and we are his branches and when we have got the Gifts of Holy spirit we should bear fruits.thats why he cursed the fig tree.(Read Matthew 21:18-21).
We need to look onto the scriptures of 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 “But as it is written, 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.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.
It says No eyes have seen no ears have heard what God has prepared for the people who love him, it says only the spirit searches the deep things of God.Because God has revealed his Spirit unto us who love him, do we know what other man thinks, only the spirit which is in him, Even the things of God no body knows only God but God has revealed his Spirit on us freely so we can know the gifts of God.Verse 14 says about natural man who does not have the spirit of God because they are not spiritually perceiving.
1 Corinthians 2:14 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 Spritualy discerned.
And the Gift of Holy Ghost teaches us how to speak how to preach how to explain the word of God but not as man’s wisdom but by Power of Holy Spirit who teaches us, make us understand what the word of God says in Spritual things.we know we are weak but holy ghost strengthen us.
We need to unwrap those hidden Gifts of Wisdom and knowledge of God, which is given to us Through the God’s Spirit.its there inside us still packed inside waiting to be unwrap.
What Jesus said in Luke 11:9 “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
We should ask God to fill us with the Wisdom and the power of his Spirit and the knowledge…and when we start asking him he will pour out his wisdom and knowledge on us.
