The knowledge of God overcomes the world.

Posted by appolus on January 26, 2019

Ecc 1:18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

It is interesting that what man wanted, more than a relationship with God, was knowledge. And yet in much wisdom there is much grief. The more we know, the more our sorrow increases. Can you imagine the burden that the Lord Jesus carried? He carried the sure knowledge of how his life would end, how he would be betrayed, how he would be reviled and rejected. Yet in all of that He loved the multitude, He loved that same multitude that would turn on Him. He did good to those He knew would hate Him and spitefully use Him.

As hard as this would be for Him to live with, to walk daily with, we must remember that He also knew that death would not be the end of it for Him, he would arise from the dead. The life that He would then live, in the glories of heaven at the right hand of the Father would erase the horrors of what He had to witness and endure in this world.

Brothers and sisters. I don’t know what you know today. Perhaps you’re dealing with the knowledge of something terrible that is happening in your life or the life of someone you know and care about? Perhaps you asked for and were shown the horrors of how this world will end and the depths than humanity will plummet to? Perhaps a doctor has conveyed knowledge to you that has increased your sorrow? The antidote to the knowledge of this world, is the knowledge of the next. The Kingdom of God is not only future it is also now. We can walk in the sure knowledge of the Kingdom, we can walk in the glories of the eternal. We can lay down in the palm of His hand.

When we are found in Him, He is all of our tomorrows. When He is our joy and our peace and our rest, then the knowledge of this world and the things that have come upon us produces love in us. And perfect love casts out all fear. Thou shalt not be afraid of the terrors of darkness nor the arrows that fly by day. Nor shall you be afraid at the destruction that you see all around you, even if ten thousand were to fall at your side. For if you make the Lord most high your habitation then surely the darkness shall not touch you for even darkness is light to Jesus.

The Lord your God has set His love upon you. He has delivered you. He has redeemed you and called you by name. If He is for you then who or what shall be against you? Come and dwell in the secret place of the most High God. He dwells in lofty places with the broken and the contrite of heart. He is your refuge and your fortress, He is your strong high tower and in Him you shall put your trust. Call upon Him and He shall answer you and visit you in the day of your trial. He will enable you to finish the race. There is nothing that you will face that is too difficult for Him. Praise ye the name of God.
