WAR AGAINST IGNORANCE!
Text: 1 Corinthians 12:1
“Now concerning spiritual gifts (things) brethren, I would not have you ignorant.”
My dear, God would not have you ignorant about anything at all. He loves and respects knowledge…because he is a God of knowledge (I Samuel 2:3).
God works with knowledge, and would work to the uttermost wherever he sees knowledge.
God has no value, and in fact, no respect for anyone who despises knowledge – see Hosea 4:6.
Ignorant people will always be carnally-minded. They are the ones who are easily plagued with the spirit of competition, envy, jealousy, strife, covetousness…The same kind of spirit that made Cain murder his brother Abel – See Genesis 4.
Proverbs 24:5 says a man of knowledge is a wise and strong man…And Daniel 11:32 says it’s people of knowledge that command exploits (outstanding results,success and distinction). So, an ignorant person is a weak person. How then can such a person do exploits?
In any area you’re ignorant, you will be weak, impotent, unproductive and very vulnerable – a cheap prey for the devil’s stealing, killing and destroying ministry! See John 10:10 and Isaiah 5:13.
2 Peter 1:8 talks about “lacking nothing”…that includes knowledge too…It’s the worst lack and poverty in this life!
That’s why God has made adequate provisions for you, child of God, to know “all things” (Yes, all things are knowable!) – even things that eyes have not seen ears have not heard, and things that no man’s heart in this world has ever conceived or imagined (innovations, strange business ideas, new discoveries, etc)…See 1 Corinthians 2:9-16.
So, friend, what are you doing still ignorant about so many things…tell me?
Can you now see that you can’t blame God (or even the devil, the economy or your country) for whatever is missing, lacking or not working in your life? I tell you!
Whatever has not yet become a reality in your life up until now, it is because you’re ignorant of it – period! Not because you don’t have money or no man to help you -no!
Meanwhile “unto you it has been given to know the mysteries of“ how things work in the Kingdom of God you have born into when you got born again…See Matthew 6:33.
The name of that Kingdom is, “in Christ” – a place of all spiritual blessings, every good thing and all things freely given to you to richly enjoy! See Ephesians 1:3, Philemon 1:6, 1 Corinthians 2:9-13, 1 Timothy 6:17.
All that is required of you is to let the knowledge of the Word of God concerning “in Christ” realities dwell in your heart richly…and begin to control your thoughts,your words, your choices, decisions, attitude and response to everything in this world of so much confusion, evil and difficulties.
Can’t you see? Accurate, exact, complete knowledge of things, things is a responsibility you cannot delegate to anyone…So, start knowing some things now! Go on all-out war ignorance in your life, home, business and family! Yes!
See… I’m not talking about going for another Master’s Degree, BA or PHD o! By the time you diligently read all these scriptures I mentioned here, the war against ignorance in your life would have begun already…believe me!
