That We May Know


1 Corinthians 2:11...In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know what God has freely given us.


As you can see, we didn’t receive artificial intelligence but supernatural intelligence that comes from the Holy Spirit. People know a lot of things (worldly things), but they don’t know what has been freely given to us by God. They don’t know the things of God and the things of the Spirit. They love their certificates, but I love God’s wisdom! Often, people don’t know what to do in life. Ignorance is Satan’s success. He wants you to stay ignorant, so he can defeat you.


1 Corinthians 2:9 However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him—

10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.


God has REVEALED the things that eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither the things that God has prepared for us. We KNOW those things by the Spirit of God.


God is not mysterious, He is REVEALING! He has been trying to get wisdom and knowledge to us, we need to shut out man’s wisdom and listen to the Holy Spirit.


Not knowing what to do next.


Don’t sit there being frustrated and getting depressed because you don’t know what to do. Learn what to do, do what you know to do at this moment, and ask God for wisdom. No excuses. Stop stalling!


Don't allow "not knowing what to do"to stall you (keep you from making progress). Ask God for wisdom, research, and do what you can to keep the momentum going.


2 Cor 4:8 (Common English) We are experiencing all kinds of trouble, but we aren’t crushed. We are confused, but we aren’t depressed. 9 We are harassed, but we aren’t abandoned. We are knocked down, but we aren’t knocked out.


Sometimes we get confused or perplexed but when you’re walking by faith you don’t get depressed, you simply break away from confusion by asking God for Supernatural Intelligence in the situation. Don’t sit there ‘NOT KNOWING”, get the answer!


You need Supernatural Intelligence, not Artificial!


Artificial: made or produced by human beings. False, insincere.


Ephesians 5:17

Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.


Wherefore be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is.


Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.


Colossians 1:9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,


We live in a world where artificial intelligence or man’s wisdom is celebrated, supported, and made to be the main thing. But God’s wisdom will always outperform artificial intelligence. You need Supernatural intelligence!


1 Cor 2:6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.


James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.


Proverbs 3:19 The LORD founded the earth by wisdom and established the heavens by understanding.


Who else has founded the earth and established a heaven? I listen to God to give me Supernatural intelligence. God is smarter and wiser than all of us. Forget what your old uncle taught you, and unsaved family members (if it’s not Godly). Old doesn’t equate to Godly Wisdom.

You are a Christian and you should know what to do. You must get out of the world’s system. It’s artificial.



The Holy Spirit Speaks and Leads


John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.


Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him--the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and strength, the Spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD.


John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.


But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.


Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons,


As we can see from these verses, the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth. He speaks and tells us about our future. He guides us. He is the Spirit of knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and counsel. We have Supernatural Intelligence in us. There should be no excuse for a Believer to sit there never knowing what to do. We should never be making decisions based on circumstances.


That they may know the Word and discern.


There are many people who have been in Christianity for years, but they still don’t know. Being in church for many years doesn’t make you a spiritually mature believer. Even knowing all the traditional sayings doesn’t make you mature.


If you aren’t living by basic faith, you’re not mature.


1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.


1 Corinthians 14:20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

Hebrews 5:14 For everyone who lives on milk is still an infant, inexperienced in the message of righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained their senses to distinguish good from evil.


Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.


God wants us to continue to grow in knowledge. Mature in His Word and become what we are supposed to become. A Believer should never stagnate in knowledge and understanding.


Who and What are making your decisions?


  • Never let offense make your decisions for you. Christians love using offense as the guide to leaving places, relationships, and churches. They say, “God told them”, But it was the offense that told them. The stranger spoke to them, not God.


  • Never let circumstances make your decisions. People let whatever is happening make their decisions. If it’s not going the way they thought it should go, they say God told them to do something else or go somewhere else. But if it’s going well, they say God said to stay. They are moved by circumstances. Results are dangerous. Just because it’s going bad doesn’t mean you are out of the will of God and just because it’s going well doesn’t mean you’re in the will of God. We must mature to the place where we just KNOW what God’s perfect will is. Too many have missed God’s perfect will because they are moved by circumstances.


Prov 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.


We don’t live by what “seems right”, we live by WHAT IS RIGHT. What did God say? What is the assignment? We live by faith. We live by every Word that comes out of God’s mouth. We don’t live by circumstances.


Matthew 4:4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

  • Never let your emotions make your decisions for you. Your emotions can’t be trusted. They are in the soulish realm. We live out of our born-again spirit, not soul. Your emotions change from moment to moment. People get mad and then decide to divorce. People get happy and decide to date the wrong person. Emotions will trick you right out of the will of God! S.I. is cool and calm. S.I. will show you who to date and marry. What job to go after with NO emotions attached to it. It’s a knowing. It’s wisdom.


  • Never let unsaved friends or family members make decisions for you. They mean well sometimes, but advice from the ungodly is just that: “ungodly advice”. I wouldn’t trust it one bit!


  • Never let carnal Christians make decisions for you. Their advice is the same as a sinner. They think exactly the same. They are naturally minded. They have artificial intelligence, not supernatural intelligence.
