CHAPTER 2 – How Do We Level the Playing Field Linking God’s Awesome Omniscience and Man’s Quite Marvelous Intellect?

I just marvel at man’s intellect and his accomplishments. But as humans, we do NOT have the ability to comprehend or fully understand much about God. But I do believe God has given us a way to level the intellectual playing field between us and Him. I write about this in all of my writings because I firmly believe without the sound mind of Christ, all one can be educated to is the world and the things of the world.
Isaiah 55:8-9, 11 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. 11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

  1. But God does want to communicate with man, so how is He going to accomplish this? If you will pray for it, God will provide you with the sound mind of Christ!
    2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. NKJV
    Isaiah 11:2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him {Jesus had this mind available to Him, and we have the SAME available to us} — the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord — AMP
    1 Corinthians 2:16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. [Isa 40:13.] AMP
