THE WISDOM OF GOD REVEALED | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

1 Corinthians 1:21-24 ,For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Beloved, you are a believer. Begin to walk like one henceforth. You are not supposed to be tossed up and down by merchandise ministers. They are not supposed to be taken advantage of you.  There are special things God made available for His, people that, the blessed Holy Spirit reveals to us. It might seems to you incredible, but they are truth.

1 Corinthians 2:9-12. 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.

The undoing of many who professed to be believers and perhaps you is your functioning in the natural.

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 spiritually discerned.

Beloved. God created everything including you, by the instrumentality of His words. See what the. Scriptures says.

Genesis 1:6: ¶And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

1 Corinthians 1:24. But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Beloved, it might sound incredible. This is the same dimension God wants you  too , to operate without having recourse to any merchandise minister.  God commanded things  and they  were created. He wants you to command like Him and create your desires according to His perfect will.
See it.

Isaiah 45:11. Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

1 John 5:14-15. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

1. It is paramount that you have become a member of His family through the new birth.

John 1:12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Beloved as you remain a bonafide child of God and you discover these words. by reading your Bible , live by the  entirety of the  word obediently. Then as you believe and speak the word in prayer, you begin to function just like God and you create your desires  without going through a merchandise prophet.
Remember this, every time.

So go and begin to do likewise.

Luke 10:37. And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Dearly beloved, there was something so unique about Bible days believers, they  thrived and excelled in preaching Christ at every opportunity.

Romans 1:16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

It is time for you too, to do same. It shall be so in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, what made Bible days believers to do this was their discoveries about their Lord and what  Jesus Himself did, during His earthly ministry. See what they discovered.
1. Jesus is the Word of God.

John 1:1-3. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

2. Jesus Himself did all His miracles during His earthly ministry through His words.  People that came to hear His words preached, received their desire miracles without stress.

Matthew 8:16-17. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Luke 5:15. But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.

Luke 5:17. And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

Luke 6:17-19. And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

He then taught His disciples  to use His words or His name and they shall experienced the power of God.  See them.

Mark 16:15-18. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Mark 16:20. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Luke 9:49-50. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

Luke 10:17-19. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

No marvel they gave attention to Him every time, listening to the words He was preaching.

Luke 10:38-42. Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Dearly beloved, it is to help you too, to do same, that was why the blessed Holy Spirit reveal to believers of all ages and you,  about Christ, the power of God. See it.

1 Corinthians 1:21-24 ,For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Jesus is the word and the word is your weapon of warfare to contend with the devil and subdue him and his cohorts. The word of God is very powerful, because it is Christ in written form.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Ephesians 6:17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

So as you too begin to preach the gospel to the unsaved in your world of influence, you will experience, same power of Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 1:5: For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

May the good Lord depend on you in Jesus name.
