Every product is as a result of a processed idea that was conceived before the beginning. The idea a man has, naturally translates into direction and instruction towards a perceived end. It also helps to trace and recognize opportunities during each stage of action.
With God, every traceable direction is made, justifies and ordained by him and for him. As is the almighty God, nothing decides for him. He exercises supreme authority from heave to earth without question.
“Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee and before thou camest out of the womb, I sanctified thee a prophet to the nations.” Jer 1:5.
With God, the believer that won’t retain God’s knowledge is bound to fail. A careless christian life naturally leads to an in excusable condemnation. The saint who lacks knowledge and the one who won’t retain it are both liable.
A wise man once said,
“He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not is a fool
He who knows not but he knows he knows not is asleep, wake him.
He who knows and knows not that he knows not is carnal
But he who knows and knows that he knows is wise man, follow him.”
According to the scripture,
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind to do those things which are not convenient.” Rom 1:28
Seeing through the following verses, we can conclude that the absence of knowledge influences sin and keeps growing until it bears the fruit of death.
“..they which commit such thing are worthy of death.” Rom 1;32
Sometimes a believer’s misfortune could be as a result of his spiritual carelessness with God’s knowledge which may result into backsliding .
Rather than being afraid of our end, we should watch our beginnings, because it is the means that justifies the end. Christianity is not a gamble, the foundation of God stands strong till tomorrow.
Righteousness and sin can never go together.
