God’s Infinite Wisdom

Sermons

The Wisdom of God is greater than anything that ever has or ever will exist. God wants to share His wisdom with us when we humble ourselves, get born again and receive the Holy Ghost. Only then can we begin to understand the wisdom of God, wisdom is a gift of the Holy Ghost. It is only when we do not put our trust in man but trust in God for He is the only one that can give true wisdom. There is no man that has wisdom that can even compare to God:

“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:25

Worldly wisdom is false and always changes. Science can not make up its mind on how many genders there are, teaches that the earth is billions of years old, started with a “big bang” out of nothing and claims we evolved from apes. It is a pride problem and the proud can not understand the wisdom of God because God has no grace on them. The fact that God spoke everything into existence 6,000-8,000 years ago, created only two genders, male and female in His image, is just too harmful to the ego of modern scientists. They go as far as to say that there is no God and expect us to believe that their constant changing theories are something to trust in when in reality they are fools.

“20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” Romans 1:20-22

On the other hand there are religious people who believe in God but feel they have to put Him in a box and know everything about Him and exactly how He works in all of His infinite wisdom. They have an answer for everything and believe God can not operate outside of what their “doctrine” allows or what they were taught at theology school. This is very common in Calvinism and those that boast about their divinity degrees they paid thousands of dollars for. This is another dangerous behavior, although sometimes well-intentioned it can show a lack of being filled with the Holy Ghost.

“33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?” Romans 11:33-34

One of the things that God loves most is someone who is humble. At this point according to the Bible, God is willing to work with someone.

“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” James 4:6

It is when we realize that we do not have all of the answers in life and know we can not save ourselves and our worldly wisdom is nothing that Jesus draws near unto us and saves us. Salvation comes by believing in what the world will call foolishness and that is the cross of Jesus Christ and in His precious Blood. The world will call us foolish for trusting in Jesus and not science but it is exactly what the Bible teaches will happen and it is a blessing when it does because it means we are on the right path and not the path of sin which leads to death.

“18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 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.” 1 Corinthians 1:18-21

Apart from God’s Wisdom no wisdom matters. There is no true wisdom outside of the Wisdom of God. The Wisdom of God gives us eternal life. Some of the most “intelligent people” by worldly standards like Stephen Hawking, Thomas Edison, Sigmund Freud al had vast amounts of worldly knowledge and success but failed at realizing what they needed to know to save their souls from Hell if they truly died atheists which they claimed to be while alive on earth. According to the Bible, no matter how much the world labels these men as geniuses, they were nothing but fools.

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” Psalms 14:1

Just think, if you swallow your pride and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world then you will be wiser than some of the most prestigious scientists that ever lived!
