Feel weak? Distressed? No hope?


We are calmed and advised to lay ALL at The feet of our Father Who Spoke, His Word Created ALL! Amen.

Our Father is unseen, ALL is of Him. ALL we see is from God. To point and obvious fact is we live in an existence of molecules, atoms, we are made up of unseen molecules. Think on this, the Earth was formed with unseen Molecules.

Above the core is Earth’s mantle, which is made up of rock containing silicon, iron, magnesium, aluminum, oxygen and other minerals. The rocky surface layer of Earth, called the crust, is made up of mostly oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium.

Earth’s crust is made up of several elements: oxygen, 47 percent; silicon, 27 percent; aluminum, 8 percent; iron, 5 percent; calcium, 4 percent; magnesium, potassium and sodium, 2 percent. Earth has multiple layers. The ocean basins and the continents compose the crust, the outermost layer.

If we study the “Science” of planets, there are gaps. Gravity ‘holding’ things together?

We can ‘Science’ it up. Why understand that the distance between Earth and the Sun is 91.4 million miles (147.1 million km) away. How was the Sun made “Scientifically”? In a wide expanse of space, gravity drew dust and gas together to create the young solar system. The sun formed first from the vast material, with the planets close behind. … In the center, the material clumped together to form a protostar that would eventually become the sun.

Earth?

We could go further and discuss the solar system. For Science its value is inexplicable. Let us rather discuss the megaverse which is a collection of several different Multiverses, either a finite or infinite amount of them, usually each having different properties and interuniversal laws, such as different cosmic events being possible, such as Big Booms, etc.

Why do we touch on this? We are even smaller in the megaverse than a grain of sand. IF we were created for a purpose it must be important! Think of how we compare with distance in relation to our actual size? What is the world record for running a mile?

The world record in the mile run is the best mark set by a male or female runner in the middle-distancetrack and field event. The IAAF is the official body which oversees the records. Hicham El Guerrouj is the current men’s record holder with his time of 3:43.13, while Sifan Hassan has the women’s record, pending ratification, of 4:12.33.

How long would it take to travel to the sun – 91.4 million miles away? Fine! That is what technology is about; even if there was Oxygen in space, a lifetime would not be adequate to traverse the distance.

If it were possible, the heat would make it highly unlikely and impossible to be near the Sun.

We take an in depth study of the megaverse.

We are at this time attempting focus on… king Solomon was blessed with wisdom greater than any man who had ever existed, yet he writes in Ecclesiastes 8:16-17: “I tried to understand all that happens on Earth. I saw how busy people are, working day and night and hardly ever sleeping.  I also saw all that God has done. Nobody can understand what God does here on Earth. No matter how hard people try to understand it, they cannot. Even if wise people say they understand, they cannot; no one can really understand it.”

Our attempt to understand what is, is limited – “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.” Hebrews 11:3

Studying The Word gives insight, but it is still cloudy. 1 Corinthians 13:12 states “For now we see through a glassdarkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” This is startling, we are known in our entirety thoughts, acts, emotions, feelings…we serve an Omniscient God, Amen.

The Bible teaches that God is all-knowing or omniscient. The word “omniscient” comes from two Latin words omnissignifying all, and scientiasignifying knowledge. When we say that God is omniscient it means that He has perfect knowledge of all things. He does not have to learn anything and He has not forgotten anything. God does not have to reason things out, find out things, or learn them gradually. He knows everything that has happened and everything that will happen. God also knows every potential thing that might happen. God even knows those things that humankind has yet to discover. This knowledge is absolute and unacquired. The omniscience of God means that He has perfect knowledge, perfect understanding, and perfect wisdom as to how to apply the knowledge.

He Is The God Of Knowledge

In the prayer of Hannah, the mother of Samuel, we have the revealed truth that God is a God of knowledge.

Talk no more so very proudly, let not arrogance come from your mouth; for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed (1 Samuel 2:3).

The psalmist wrote.

O LORD, you have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from far away. You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, O LORD, you know it completely. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it (Psalm 139:1-6).

He Has Infinite Knowledge

The psalmist wrote of God’s infinite knowledge.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; his understanding is infinite (Psalm 147:5).

John the evangelist wrote:

For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things (1 John 3:20).

He Has Know Things From Eternity

God has had all knowledge for all eternity:

Known to God from eternity are all his works (Acts 15:18).

His Knowledge Is Without Limit

The Bible clearly teaches that God’s knowledge is without limit. The Apostle Paul declared:

Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out (Romans 11:33).

In Proverbs we read.

The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good (Proverbs 15:3).

The psalmist declared.

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure (Psalm 147:5).

It Is Not Like Human Knowledge

The knowledge that God has is not like the limited knowledge of human beings.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:8,9).

The psalmist wrote.

These things you have done and I have been silent; you thought that I was one just like yourself. But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge before you (Psalm 50:21).

His Knowledge Is Perfect

The knowledge of God is perfect. In the Book of Job a man named Elihu said.

Do you know the balance of the clouds, those wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge (Job 37:16).

No One Can Teach Him

Because the knowledge of God is perfect, no one can teach Him anything.

Can anyone teach God knowledge, in that he judges those on high? (Job 21:22).

Paul stated the same truth.

For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became his counselor? (Romans 11:34).

Neither does God have to investigate anything.

For he knows those who are worthless, and he sees iniquity without investigating (Job 11:11).

He Knows What Is Happening On The Earth

Scripture says that God is aware of what is presently happening here on earth.

The Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have given heed to their cry because of their taskmasters, for I am aware of their sufferings” (Exodus 3:7).

He also knows things from the past.

Says the Lord, who makes these things known from long ago (Acts 15:18).

He Predict Events Ahead Of Time

Because God knows everything that will happen, this allows Him to predict the future ahead of time. We read the Lord saying that He,

Declares the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all my good pleasure (Isaiah 46:10).

God predicted of Abraham.

Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him. For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him (Genesis 18:18,19).

Elisha the prophet made the following prediction.

Elisha answered, “Go and say to him, ‘You will certainly not recover’; but the LORD has revealed to me that he will in fact die” (2 Kings 8:10).

His Eyes See All Things

Scripture speaks symbolically of the “eyes of God” seeing all things.

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that he may strongly support those whose heart is completely his (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Jeremiah the prophet recorded the Lord saying.

For my eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from my face, nor is their iniquity concealed from my eyes (Jeremiah 16:17).

Zechariah recorded.

For who has despised the day of small things? But these seven will be glad when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel these are the eyes of the Lord which range to and fro throughout the earth (Zechariah 4:10).

The psalmist wrote.

Does he who implanted the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see? (Psalm 94:9).

His Knowledge Is Denied By The Wicked

Scripture informs us that the wicked question the nature and extent of God’s knowledge. They question how God is able to know everything.

And they say, “How can God know? Is there knowledge in the Most High?” Such are the wicked; always at ease, they increase in riches (Psalm 73:11,12).

They believe God does not see their sin.

And they say, “The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob does not perceive.” Understand, O dullest of the people; fools, when will you be wise? (Psalm 94:7).

God knows what the evil people think.

Therefore he knows their works, and he overthrows them in the night (Job 34:25).

God Is Perfect In Judgment

Only a God who is perfect in knowledge would be competent to judge humanity. The Bible speaks of that Day of Judgment when the Lord judges all humanity. For God to judge righteously, He must know all things.

But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the godless (2 Peter 3:7).

When people realize they will have to stand one day before an all-knowing God, this should cause them to evaluate the way they live their lives. Judgment is coming and people need to live in light of it. Jesus said.

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned (Matthew 12:37).

Humanity Should Take The Warnings Seriously

Because God knows everything the warnings that He gives humankind need to be taken seriously. Since He knows what will happen in the future any warning He gives in for our benefit.

There Is Comfort For Believer

There is great comfort for the believer in the omniscience of God. In all the problems the believer may face we are told by Jesus that, “Your Father knows” (Matthew 6:8).

The Lord searches every heart.

And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever (1 Chronicles 28:9).

The Believer Is Secure In This Knowledge

The believer may rest secure in the knowledge that God knows everything about them. Nothing about any of us will take God by surprise. No one can tell Him anything that would cause Him to cast us out of His presence. He thoroughly knows us.

Whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything (1 John 3:20).

As we examine what the Scripture has to say about the extent of the knowledge of God several things become clear. First, God is a God of infinite knowledge – there is nothing that He is not aware of. God is not like human beings in His knowledge. He cannot learn anything, does not need to be taught and does not make any mistakes. Consequently He is able to righteously judge humanity for he knows the thought as well as the deed. His omniscience also allows him to predict the future. He knows everything that will happen before it occurs. There is great security for the believer in the omniscience of God. He knows the need of each believer and he promises to meet those needs. All those who have put their trust in him are comforted by the thought of God’s omniscience.

Moreover David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all the people were embittered, each one because of his sons and his daughters But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

1 Samuel 30:6

We started on Existence; our knowledge is what is seen. Where do ‘memories‘ go? We are memory.

I ask again; who are you?

We started asking about who feels Weak? Distressed? Hopeless? It is human to feel this way. Inexplicably indescribable feelings are found in Christ.

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13)

Your rest is coming. Sooner than you know you will receive your “imperishable, undefiled, and unfading inheritance” (1 Peter 1:4). And when it comes you will understand why your faith was more precious than gold (1 Peter 1:7). This is where Peter wants your hope to fully rest.

But today is a time for war, not peace. It’s a time for faith, not sight. It’s a time of grievous trials that test the genuineness of your faith (1 Peter 1:6–7). So it’s a time to prepare for the action of battle, to keep sober.

Your battle today will not be against “flesh and blood” but the deceitful forces of evil (Ephesians 6:12) and the deceitfulness of indwelling sin (Hebrews 3:13). And these two forces are going to try to use your emotions against you. So it might be helpful, by way of preparation, to remember the purpose of emotions so you can fight more effectively and know when to counter them.

God designed your emotions to be gauges, not guides. They’re meant to report to you, not dictate you. The pattern of your emotions (not every caffeine-induced or sleep-deprived one!) will give you a reading on where your hope is because they are wired into what you believe and value — and how much. That’s why emotions like delight (Psalm 37:4), affection (Romans 12:10), fear (Luke 12:5), anger (Psalm 37:8), joy (Psalm 5:11), etc., are so important in the Bible. They reveal what your heart loves, trusts, and fears. At Desiring God we like to say pleasure is the measure of your treasure, because the emotion of pleasure is a gauge that tells you what you love.

But because our emotions are wired into our fallen natures as well as into our regenerated natures, sin and Satan have access to them and will use them to try and manipulate us to act faithlessly. That’s why our emotional responses to temptation can seem like imperatives (you must do…) rather than indicatives (here’s what you’re being told). Just remember, that’s deceit.

Emotions aren’t imperatives; they’re not your boss. They’re indicatives; they’re reports. That’s why Paul wrote, “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions” (Romans 6:12).

So get ready today. “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). He will make promises to and/or threats against you. He will likely try and tap into your weak areas of unbelief and you may find your emotions surging in the wrong direction.

When that happens don’t be overly impressed. Remember that your emotions are gauges, not guides. Let them tell you where the attack is being made so you can fight it with the right promises. And go to a trusted friend for prayer, perspective, and counsel if you need to.

And remember that this “light momentary affliction is preparing for [you] an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” (2 Corinthians 4:17) and very soon, it’s going to be over. And God, your Great Reward, will be all the inheritance you will ever want forever.

Set your hope fully on that.
