That which is with the Almighty will I not Conceal

Look around at Creation and you will see the Wisdom of God!

00 Jesus

Proverbs 8:1, 12, 22-23
1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

Wisdom was with God in the beginning and was set up from everlasting!

Luke 11:49
49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

Wisdom was with God and Wisdom was God!

Proverbs 2:6-7
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

Wisdom was with God and Wisdom proceeds out of the Word of God!

Proverbs 3:19-20
19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

The Earth was founded by the Wisdom of God!

1 Corinthians 2:7-8
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

The Wisdom of God was spoken in a mystery!

Ephesians 1:17-18
17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Seek for the spirit of wisdom and the revelation of the knowledge of God!

Jeremiah 51:15
15 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

The world was established by the Wisdom of God!

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

Strong’s Concordance – 3056. logos, log’-os; from G3004; something said (including the thought); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension a computation; specifically (with the art. in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ)

The logos is something said (including the thought) and also the reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive of what was said.  Thus the Word that was with God and was God, was the Wisdom of God that was with God, because Wisdom proceeds out of the Word of God!

The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. (Pro 8:22-23)

And the Lord said, Let there be, and He brought forth the Word (the thought, plan, and mind of God) and Creation began.  But the thought, plan, and mind of God has not yet been fully accomplished.  Thus, when the fulness of the time was come, this Wisdom of God, robed Himself in flesh and dwelt amongst us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,).

We know this for sure because the Apostle John said, In the beginning was the Word.  God does not have a beginning.  But we know that Jesus referred to the beginning as the Creation.  Thus the Word that was God (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) was put into action when the Lord said, Let there be.

Matthew 19:4
4  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

This would explain how Jesus made this statement:

Revelation 3:14
14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

So in the beginning was the Word, (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) that was put into action when He brought forth the process of Creation.  For in the mind of God or the Word of God, He knew the end from the beginning.

Thus according to His foreknowledge He declared through His Word that the Lamb (of God) was slain from the foundation of the world.  But it would not be for close to 4,000 years before the Word (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) would be made flesh and dwell among us.

This Word made flesh, whose name was Jesus, would be the sacrificial Lamb of God which would take away the sin of the world through His death, being a Perfect Lamb without spot, wrinkle, or blemish; that God would raise up from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights from being in the bowels of Hell, wherein Jesus was preaching the Gospel to the imprisoned souls that were there.

However, the conclusion of the Word, (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God), has still yet to be fully accomplished.  For the Word of God must yet return and put all things under His feet, that God may be all in all.  And then we must complete the Millennial reign of Christ.

Upon the completion of the Millennial reign of Christ, The Word of God, (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) still will not be completed.  For since the plan of God is to be forever with His chosen people and the faithful Angels of God, and we are His creation; the thought, plan, and mind of God will then be forever unfolding, for there is no end.

Psalms 33:6
6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

Wisdom was with God for Wisdom proceeds out of the Word of God!

Hebrews 11:3
3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

2 Peter 3:5
5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

Out of the Word of God proceeds Wisdom thus Wisdom was with God!

Ephesians 3:9-10
9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10  To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

The manifold Wisdom of God was the Word, (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) which was made flesh and dwelt amongst us, revealed to us the name of God as Jesus.  And upon His death, burial, and resurrection, destroyed him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and thus brought forth Truth and Life to all of those who hear the Word and obey!

Hebrews 3:3-4
3  For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
4  For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

For God by the Word, (which was the thought, plan, and mind of God) created all things by Jesus Christ, of whom He is.

Psalms 136:5
5  To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

In the beginning was Wisdom, and Wisdom was with God, and Wisdom was God!

Hebrews 1:1-2
1  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

For the Word, which was the thought, mind, and plan of God is Wisdom!

Psalms 104:23-24
23  Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
24  O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

As Job said…..

Job 27:11-12
11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almightywill I not conceal.
12 Behold, all ye yourselves have seen it; why then are ye thus altogether vain?

Look around and see the Wisdom of God in His Creation!

Jeremiah 10:10-12
10  But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
11  Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.
12  He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

O Fear before this Wisdom that was with God and was God for it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God!!!!!!!

Passion, Compassion, Fire & Zeal

As the bride of Christ and the servants of the Most High King, it is essential that we have an intense enthusiasm and sympathetic pity for reaching out to the lost, as well as a deep, burning fervor for the Lord Jesus Christ.

We Must have a Passion for the Lost!!!

As the witnesses of Jesus Christ, we must be diligent about the work of the Lord.

Luke 14:33-35
33  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
34  Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
35  It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Romans 9:1-5
1  I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
2  That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
3  For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
4  Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
5  Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

O Lord, Give us a Burden for the Lost!!  Let us learn from the Apostle Paul, of this kind of passion.  Pray and seek the Lord, that you too, would have a burden for the lost!!

Matthew 18:11-14
11  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12  How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13  And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
14  Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 

We Must have a Compassion for the Lost!!!

Matthew 9:35-38 
35  And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36  But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Let us pray to be labourers in the Lord’s harvest.

John 4:35-37
35  Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36  And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37  And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

Ephesians 5:14-16
14  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Romans 13:11-12
11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Jude 1:20-23
20  But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22  And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

We Must have a Deep, Burning Fire for the Lord Jesus Christ!!! 

Jeremiah 20:7-9
7  O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
8  For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
9  Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

HALLELUJAH!!!!  Do you have the Fire shut up in your bones????

Luke 3:16
16  John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

Praise God!!!! We have the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost Fire!!!
Joy unspeakable!!  Full of Glory!!

Hebrews 12:29
29  For our God is a consuming fire.

Let your light so shine before men!!
O Lord Consume us with the Holy Ghost Fire, and Let your Word Burn in our Hearts!!

We Must be Zealous for the Lord Jesus Christ!!!

The Lord Jesus Christ is looking for a red hot Church that is desirous of pleasing Him and fulfilling His will of being His witnesses.

Revelation 3:13-22
13  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Let us not be caught cold or lukewarm.  For we have been told the result of this path.  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Romans 10:1-4
1  Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
2  For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3  For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
4  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Hear the story of the Zeal of Apostle Paul!!

Acts 7:55-60; 8:1-4
55  But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
56  And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
57  Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
58  And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
59  And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
60  And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
8:1  And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
2  And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.
Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.

Acts 9:1-6
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
2  And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
3  And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
4  And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
6  And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

What this illustrates is the Zeal of Apostle Paul for doing the work of the LORD, though he did not yet understand that the LORD was Jesus Christ!!  He was so zealous for God, that he went house to house wreaking havoc on the church.  He persecuted the people of God.  He was so zealous for the Lord, that he went unto the high priest and sought letters that he might be able to continue his pursuit of the Christians as they fled from him.

Acts 9:7-16
7  And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
8  And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.
9  And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
10  And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
11  And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
12  And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
13  Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14  And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15  But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16  For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.

Philippians 3:4-17
4  Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
5  Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11  If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
12  Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15  Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
16  Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
17  Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Hebrews 12:1-2
1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
