IF PROBLEMS ARE EXPERIENCED IN OPENING THE CONTENTS OF THIS POST, PLEASE INFORM ME!

Knowledge is the taking in of facts, not necessarily true facts, but facts as such. In our modern world there is spoken of Evolution, and with confirming delusional facts, and this diabolical theory is believed by many.  It is spoken of in most schools as casually as if it is or was a part of human history. So, speaking of facts, there were for instance those facts, although totally contrary to Bible teaching, there were and still are those facts!

PLEASE NOTE: ALL POSTS WILL BE PRECEDED BY THE IMPORTANT WORDS BELOW!

NOT ONLY WILL THE TRULY “WICKED” PEOPLE BE ETERNALLY DESTROYED BUT ALSO ALL THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE TO OUR CREATOR JEHOVAH GOD! THE ONUS IS ON EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO ENSURE THAT THEY AND THEIR MINOR CHILDREN ARE ALL ACCEPTABLE! MILLIONS OF “NICE” PEOPLE WERE ALSO ALL DESTROYED IN THE FLOOD OF NOAH’S DAY!

AND

2 CORINTHIANS 13:5 & 6

5 KEEP TESTING WHETHER YOU ARE IN THE FAITH, KEEP PROVING WHAT YOU YOURSELVES ARE. OR DO YOU NOT RECOGNISE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS IN UNION WITH YOU? UNLESS YOU ARE DISAPPROVED! 6 I TRULY HOPE THAT YOU WILL COME TO KNOW WE ARE NOT DISAPPROVED. (The onus is on each and every person to frequently ensure that they are endeavouring to do Jehovah God’s EXPLICIT will to the best of their ability!)

KNOWLEDGE FROM THE BIBLE

October 29th, 2010 | Author: Douglas | Edit

The taking in of  true, logical and practical facts, however, also happens. These facts are knowledge that can be put to very good use. This is where wisdom comes in. Wisdom is the application of true knowledge acquired.

It is also a fact that facts do not fall out of the sky. Many a useful fact is picked up in casual conversation, but billions of unreliable, untrue and twisted facts are also heard. This is especially true of Biblical “facts”. Just mention anything out of the Bible that is true, but not liked, then billions of people that most of all do not even know where their Bibles are, if they have one, will give you a mouthful of “facts”.

When, however, true facts are needed about any given subject, the more in-depth the study, the more knowledge is obtained. With mathematics especially, and to a large degree, geography, the facts are true, as there is little to gain in diversifying the facts. But when it comes to most other subjects such as history, then the author makes the decision as to the “true” facts.

Now, with the study of religion and the Bible we are talking “big bucks, very big bucks”. Here intensive study is required to be able to gain accurate knowledge of the Bible. True knowledge is however the ultimate goal, if the “big bucks” are not a decisive element.

Firstly, it is most probably the best to ask: “What would have happened if Adam had not sinned, and if sin had never entered into the world?”

Would it not then be true that Adam and Eve would have still been alive in Paradise on our physical earth, with all their descendants? Why should our Almighty and Omniscient Creator change His original plans because one of His smaller creations, namely Satan, caused problems that our Creator is capable of rectifying?

The medical fraternity has confirmed that every cell that stays alive in the human body is replaced, in an ongoing process, by a new cell. The reproduction of humans is stopped at approximately forty years of age in the female body, so as to allow for all persons to become parents of perfect children, and so to fill the earthly Paradise. Then the perfect people will accept that all reproduction will be stopped, so as to allow life into eternity, once the earth has become fully populated.

Jehovah God’s plan was not to place imperfect persons on the earth so that they could abuse and destroy His beautiful creation, and then for the wealthy humans to look for another planet to live on, and finally destroy that too, until humankind has destroyed the entire universe. Fortunately, most people should agree.

With these thoughts in mind:

Let us have a look at a few Scriptures from the Bible about Knowledge:

Genesis 2:9

Thus Jehovah God made to grow out of the ground every tree desirable to one’s sight and good for food and also the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and bad.

Genesis 2:17

But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die. (All who read the Bible know that Adam did not die on the day he ate from the forbidden tree. This is where the time factor of Jehovah God becomes operative. One day in the eyes of Jehovah God is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON HAS BECOME ONE THOUSAND YEARS OLD YET! Another important factor is that no tree can provide knowledge, either good or bad! So the “obedience” factor was the prime reason that Jehovah God forbade Adam and Eve to eat from the tree. Were they to initiate that every human that would ever be born would resultantly believe that they had the capability of “KNOWING” what was “GOOD” and what was “BAD”? Let us have a look at a few examples:

Is it bad to steal? Yes. Why? Firstly, because the Bible says so! Secondly, they would not want someone to steal from them either! Would the persons have felt differently if no mention of stealing was in the Bible and they had made absolutely sure that it was virtually impossible to steal from them?

Is it bad to fornicate? Depends! Although the Bible says so we must remember that the Bible was written long ago, and in many cases it is imperatively important that compatibility is determined before the “paper” vows are taken. Nowadays most women are active in the economic fields of the world. In Biblical times that was not necessary. I, myself, being an extremely firm believer that fornication is a DEADLY sin and also that no women should be able to work or be employed outside her “HOME” could give QUITE A NUMBER OF  ”so-called “VALID” reasons why fornication could be considered valuable. PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THAT I WOULD EVER BELIEVE THAT THERE COULD BE A “VALID” REASON, BUT DUE TO THE FACT THAT THOSE THAT WISH TO BELIEVE SO ARE AT LEAST MILLIONS BY NUMBER, IT WOULD BE EASY TO MAKE IT THE ACCEPTABLE NORM. I THINK I HAVE PROVED HOW EASY IT IS TO TWIST ANY FACTS, ESPECIALLY BIBLICAL FACTS, DUE TO THE PEOPLE BELIEVING THAT THEY HAVE KNOWLEDGE EQUAL TO JEHOVAH GOD THAT ENABLES THEM TO DISCERN BETWEEN GOOD AND BAD.

Genesis 2:25

And both of them continued to be naked, the man and his wife, and yet they did not become ashamed. (Immediately after eating from the forbidden tree, the humans themselves decided that they were ashamed to be naked. So they immediately considered that they had the right to question Jehovah God’s reasoning and judgement. Still, today, people are “deciding” what is right and what is wrong. This is where the total amount of false religions has stemmed from.)

Deuteronomy 12:15

“Only whenever your soul craves it you may slaughter, and you must eat meat according to the blessing of Jehovah your God that he has given you, inside all your gates. The unclean one and the clean one may eat it, like the gazelle and like the stag. (There are three things of importance in this Scripture: Firstly, meat was not considered to be food initially in the beginning, but due to humans making extinct what they cannot use out of greed, Jehovah God had to allow the eating of meat. Secondly: Hunting for sporting reasons is a sin, and would never be condoned by Jehovah God. It is a well-known fact, however, that hunting is also a very lucrative and profitable business. All life is sacred to Jehovah God, and in His Kingdom after Armageddon, no blood will ever be outside of any creature evermore. Thirdly: Except for the eating of the blood, the restriction to eat certain meats has been withdrawn, most probably due to the “extinction” factor caused by the greed of humans. The “tree of knowledge” HAS “told” most humans, however, that there is nothing wrong with hunting for sport, the “tree of knowledge” being their own discretion being utilised.)

Deuteronomy 13:3

3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or to the dreamer of that dream, because Jehovah YOUR God is testing YOU to know whether YOU are loving Jehovah YOUR God with all YOUR heart and all YOUR soul. (No logical knowledge exists in the words of “false prophets or dreamers”. Attention must here be drawn to the words “Jehovah YOUR God is testing you” as it would appear that He is really “testing” you in the literal sense of the word, but when taken in the true context then the “testing” would be similar to being tested for an examination at school. In other words, you are being “measured” against a certain standard of true and faithful Biblical measurement. Jehovah God is not placing any obstacles or occurrences in your way so as to “see” if you will overcome them for His sake.)

Deuteronomy 13:11

Then all Israel will hear and become afraid, and they will not do anything like this bad thing again in your midst. (There is a saying that “seeing is believing!” There is also a saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. So paying attention to the visual you take in knowledge from what you see and observe. Often in the Bible people were stoned to death in public and that served as a severe deterrent to those who were liable to do the same or similar deeds. For the same reason sin exists. Jehovah God states in the Bible that people sin because He does not immediately punish them. He is only going to mete out justice and punishment, if necessary, after their deaths or at Armageddon!)

2 Chronicles 1:11

Then God said to Sol’o·mon: “For the reason that this has proved to be close to your heart and you have not asked for wealth, riches and honour or for the soul of those hating you, neither is it even many days that you have asked for, but you ask for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may judge my people over whom I have made you king, (Could there be any requests as wise and unselfish as the one that was made by Sol’o•mon?)

Proverbs 6:6

Go to the ant, you lazy one; see its ways and become wise. (It is a known fact that there is always a hustle and a bustle the way ants industriously work. The hard industrious work though is not the theme of this Scripture. Because the ant colonies are too large, the amount of work is also increased, and also the ants “make hay while the sun shines”. So, humans must also be sure that they can survive well enough before becoming biological production machines, and they must work what is required for the day, and if they do, tomorrow should look after itself.)

Proverbs 14:17 & 18

17 He that is quick to anger will commit foolishness, but the man of thinking abilities is hated. 18. The inexperienced ones will certainly take possession of foolishness, but the shrewd ones will bear knowledge as a headdress.

Proverbs 14:23

By every kind of toil there comes to be an advantage, but merely the word of the lips [tends] to want. (This Scripture contains a wise saying! There is a human expression, namely “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”, that also is well-known. How many people do “lip-service” but never really “get around to doing anything”? So it is necessary in your physical and spiritual existence to be really and truly active .Just as you need to “toil” for your physical food, just so you have to “toil” for your spiritual food! FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD!)

Ecclesiastes 7:5.

Better is it to hear the rebuke of someone wise than to be the man hearing the song of the stupid ones. (This Scripture also contains a very wise saying! If you are corrected in what you say or do by a wise person then to react favourably would gain you positive reactions and results. A good example of “hearing the song of a stupid one” would be that of a person being praised for becoming a world champion in a sport. The “world champion” eventually becomes old and weary, and often eventually dies without receiving his or her Creator’s acceptance. All the gruelling hours and years of “toil” spent were actually to absolutely no long-term avail!)

Isaiah 5:13

Therefore my people will have to go into exile for lack of knowledge; and their glory will be famished men, and their crowd will be parched with thirst. (The term “exile” here means “a long period away from your land”. The term “famished” means “extremely hungry”, and the term  “thirst” then also means that you have an extreme need for “water”. So it can be understood that due to lack of accurate Bible knowledge, the people are wandering, for an extremely long period, maybe their whole lifetimes and even eternity, in the desolation of the lands of false religion. Billions of people in the domain of false religion are really “hungering” for true knowledge, but they mostly  accept the doctrines of false religion, because the doctrines “tickle their ears”. Their fleshly weakness controls their desires. So they fill their needs with “junk food” that leaves them “famished” for the want of true nourishing “food”. Then there is the “thirst”. Just look around you. Most people that you see are “searching” desperately, as someone that urgently needs “water”, for something feasible, practical and logical to fill the vacuum in their spiritual lives.)

Isaiah 6:9

And he went on to say: “Go, and you must say to this people, ‘Hear again and again, O men, but do not understand; and see again and again, but do not get any knowledge.’ (Here again it would seem that Jehovah God is purposely withholding accurate Biblical knowledge from certain persons, but taken in the proper context, He is warning them that “THERE ARE NONE SO DEAF AS THOSE THAT DO NOT WANT TO HEAR” OR “NONE SO BLIND AS THOSE THAT DO NOT WANT TO SEE”! This is particularly obvious when you so often see parents “spoiling” their children “rotten! The parents do not “listen” or “see” what people mean when the people try to warn them. When you see a beautiful fruit then you actually feel bad about biting into it. When, however, it has become “rotten” then you shudder at the thought of touching it. The word “rotten” when mentioned in connection with the spoiled child is so accurately described as the child invariably becomes so obnoxious that you do not even want to see or look at him or her.)

Isaiah 6:10

Make the heart of this people unreceptive, and make their very ears unresponsive, and paste their very eyes together, that they may not see with their eyes and with their ears they may not hear, and that their own heart may not understand and that they may not actually turn back and get healing for themselves.” (Jehovah God “knows” the hearts and desires of those people, and thus knows that if they have the information they will abuse it further, if they are abusing it already. It would most probably be very dangerous for His real children if that knowledge was known by those people. A good example is the false spreading of “the end of the world” stories that never occur. Satan the Devil often instigates the spreading of these false “warnings” so as to make it to be an object of ridicule. It also acts as a reason for the people to ignore the true signs of the time that the Bible gives that are at present indicating that the end is truly near.)

Isaiah 40:14

With whom did he consult together that one might make him understand, or who teaches him in the path of justice, or teaches him knowledge, or makes him know the very way of real understanding? (It is quite obviously Jehovah God that is being spoken about! Billions of questions or statements have been made by mere humans that query the actions of our Creator.)

Isaiah 45:20

“Collect yourselves and come. Bring yourselves up close together, YOU escapees from the nations. Those carrying the wood of their carved image have not come to any knowledge, neither have those praying to a god that cannot save. (The Bible is only concerned with people that are involved with the Bible, be it in the correct or incorrect way. We know that atheists and heathens pray to idols, cows, etc. but these are not the people that this Scripture is referring to! This Scripture is pointing to people that profess to praise and serve the True God, but have all the physical “dead” objects all around them that they pay reverence to. Even the “cross” that has a Satanic origin is boldly displayed all around, and often even worn as part of a necklace. Watching a crime series last night, a scene was shown where the brutally murdered woman was clutching a cross in her hands and the lady detective so sadly commented how she had believed that the “dead” cross would save her. Can you now see how wily the Devil is in misleading people so easily? All persons that do not have accurate Bible knowledge immediately respond with an understanding of her “faith” and then “wonder” why God did not respond. Then, ultimately again, the reasoning again kicks in that the “WAYS OF GOD ARE MYSTERIOUS AND WE ARE NOT TO QUESTION THEM”!)

Luke 16:8

And his master commended the steward, though unrighteous, because he acted with practical wisdom; for the sons of this system of things are wiser in a practical way toward their own generation than the sons of the light are. (What a revelation. I have very often thought along those lines in many ways. For instance, the example that I gave about my colleague that went to the nearest church. Others all proclaim that it does not matter to which religion a person belongs, as they all revere God. But then they travel past numerous churches to go to “their” church. So this Scripture spells out many illogical thoughts and actions that are perpetrated by those that attend false religions. Also, if an earthly “boss” acts without any logical actions there are many laws to protect the employee. When it comes to our Heavenly “BOSS”, then His ways can be “mysterious”, “illogical”, “impractical”, “without sound reasoning”, even “cruel”, etc.)

Acts 1:7

He said to them: “It does not belong to YOU to get knowledge of the times or seasons which the Father has placed in his own jurisdiction; (The reason for this Scripture was because Jehovah God knew that too many fleshly “obstacles” were in the way of the person’s desire to know the truth. If Jehovah God had given a specific date and time then different persons would have acted in so many differing ways. If the date and time were six months away, would people still build houses with the hope of making “big bucks?. Would others not have made debt that they could not pay? Would billions not have had a “great” time and then repented at the latest possible opportunity? The Bible however clearly states that when you see the trees blossoming then you know that spring is here! How bad must the world become before billions of people will accept that the “END” is near?)

Ephesians 3:5

In other generations this [secret] was not made known to the sons of men as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by spirit, (Jehovah God has His times and the persons would most probably not  have understood the information at any earlier times, and Jehovah God knew that. Two centuries ago no person would have understood airplanes, motorcars, television, blood transfusions, heart transplants, etc. The same would be understood about information that Jehovah God gave at different times when seen in the correct context.)

1 Thessalonians 4:15

For this is what we tell YOU by Jehovah’s word, that we the living who survive to the presence of the Lord shall in no way precede those who have fallen asleep [in death]; (A fact that is worth knowing is that the 144 000 Heavenly Class will be in Heaven before the advent of Armageddon, and before all those that are found acceptable to Jehovah God will go through Armageddon without ever physically dying so as to eventually live eternally on this same physical earth in paradise conditions.)

1Timothy 2:14

14 Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was thoroughly deceived and came to be in transgression. 15 However, she will be kept safe through childbearing, provided they continue in faith and love and sanctification along with soundness of mind. (I have often heard that Eve, or a woman generally, was responsible for sin, and the condition the world is in today. The Bible states: “Sin entered the world through one man, and one man (Jesus) had to pay the price” for those worthy of being eventually being free of sin, and the results of sin.)
