God’s Spiritual Manna

“I Peter 2:2–3 reads: As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. As a newborn desires and needs his nourishment to live and grow, we are also to desire in a like manner the sincere milk of God’s wonderful Word, for with the milk of God’s Word we will spiritually grow in the wisdom of God.” ~LMJ~

The Candidate Who is Seeking Christ

“In I Corinthians 1:24 we read that Christ {is} the wisdom of God. Without Christ, a non-seeking individual will remain in a state of spiritual inertness without access to the God of heaven and His true wisdom. Conversely, the candidate who is seeking Christ in the Word of God will find it is with pleasure that Jesus will always give men and women unhindered access to his Father’s true wisdom, nature, and love. Through this doorway, we may delightfully approach God with open hearts to receive His love and guidance.” ~LMJ~

Hush – Well Not Anymore!

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world {even began} unto our glory: Which none of the princes {the rulers of darkness} of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory– I Corinthians 2:7-8. The mystery, the hidden and secret wisdom of God was ordained before the world began for our glory, yet it was a secret that was not revealed until Christ was raised from the dead. If God’s secret was ever known to the powers of darkness, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory, Jesus Christ. Without the crucifixion and sacrifice of Jesus for us, we would have remained eternally unredeemed, forever unsaved, and destined to eternal damnation, and without God and without hope in this world. But because of the death of Jesus Christ we have received the spiritual life of Christ within our very hearts, and our entrance into the salvation of eternity, being forever redeemed – bought back from the devil’s power.” ~LMJ~

The Multiplication Table

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord– II Peter 1:2. Grace and peace is something we may expect to receive simply by going to our Bibles and looking for the knowledge of Christ who is, according to I Corinthians 1:24, the power of God, and the wisdom of God” ~LMJ~

Daniel – Revealing Our Power and Wisdom of God

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

In the Book of Daniel, we can see the power and wisdom of God that delivered Daniel. Christ is typified in the angel who protected Daniel, and who gave him understanding to outwit his adversaries who tried to snuff out his life.

Daniel lived in captivity in Babylon, and God gave him wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to be able to stand before the kings of Babylon and give righteous counsel and judgments.

In Daniel’s life we see the wisdom of Christ “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). Daniel received wondrous revelations regarding the future because he anticipated his Savior’s coming, and Daniel’s own resurrection.

Daniel wrote of things that even today have yet to be fulfilled or clearly understood.

Daniel 12:8-9:
-8: And I heard {of things to come upon this earth}, but I understood not {the complete details}: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
-9: And he {an angel} said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

What is interesting here is that Daniel did not understand all the details about the future that he was shown, so he asked. Daniel was wise beyond his years because he went to the source of the revelation and asked, rather than guessing.

The angel explained that the revelations were not yet to be revealed, and thus Daniel could not fully understand it all, but at least he had glimpses of the future, which inspired him greatly.

When God seals something, it stays sealed until He has the seal opened. Yet today there are thousands of books written that attempt to explain the revelations of Daniel as though they had received special revelation regarding “the time of the end.”

All of these so-called revelations that attempt to reveal what Daniel heard and saw are mainly fear-motivated to scare people into accepting Jesus Christ. However, when the truth is spoken in love and in the light of God’s true Word, the believers will be inspired to accept Jesus Christ and freed to daily enjoy their escape from the end times as we read, we are to “wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come {emphasis supplied}” I Thessalonians 1:10).

Even the revelations in the Book of Revelation have yet to happen and are still sealed, and the future events recorded therein will not even begin to happen until after the gathering together when Christ returns and takes us (the Church of God) up to heaven.

We, the believers, will not be living on this earth when the revelations of Daniel, John, and others become unsealed and begin to happen.

Today we live in grace rather than in the “day of vengeance,” or the “day of the LORD”; believe me when I say we absolutely would know the difference between the two, because grace and wrath cannot coexist.

It is the height of man’s folly to try to relate future events into the present, claiming that we are living in those days of wrath.  The Bible says that we have been delivered “from the wrath to come” (I Thessalonians 1:10). So those who claim that we are actually living in those future days of wrath are apparently much wiser than God, the Creator of the heavens and earth Who has yet to open those seals.

God’s Word gives us assurance that we have been saved from any and all future wrath (Romans 5:9).  Well, praise God that we know the truth of His healing Word. And to further relieve us from the fears of the current day, Galatians 1:4 records, “Who {Jesus Christ} gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.”

Today in God’s grace, we have past, present, and even future deliverance because God already has “delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us” (II Corinthians 1:10).

Daniel’s friends were delivered from the fiery furnace, showing his friends, as well as us, that believers would also be delivered from going into the pits of hell and revealing to us the power of God.

In the same manner, Daniel was also delivered from the lion’s den and knew through the wisdom of God that he would also be delivered from the Devil who is “as a roaring lion” (I Peter 5:8).

I Corinthians 1:24 says, “Christ {is} the power of God, and the wisdom of God,” because in God’s grace we have received the wisdom and power of God through receiving Christ in our hearts who assures us that we have now and forever eternal deliverance from fear, from the Adversary, and from ALL the wrath to come.

Daniel and the Old Testament believers would enjoy their future deliverance after their resurrection (Daniel 12:2-3).

Thankfully, today we can begin enjoying our deliverance in the here and now because: “Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should {now} walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). The “newness of life” that we can enjoy is revealed to us through “Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”
