The Omniscient God
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” - (Gen.1:1).
“Dost thou know the balancing of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge” - (Job 37:16).
“…And of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” - (Col.2:2,3).
O the Omni-science of our triune God, the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost. He possesses perfect, complete, and universal knowledge and wisdom and understanding in all things. He knows the hearts and minds and thoughts of every creature He has created in heaven or earth. He knows all our ways and words. “Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart” - (Ps.44:21). Again about Jesus - “But he knowing their thoughts…” - (Lk.11:17). Again - “… but God knoweth your hearts…” - (Lk.16:15). God and His Son and the Holy Spirit need to consult no one for knowledge. He is the all-knowing Lord who knows the past and present and prophesies of the future. He has omniscience.
Omni-science- all science (knowledge). God is the great, incomparable scientist of all, and a trillion times more knowledgeable than human scientists. He’s the perfect scientist that makes no mistakes. (Science means knowledge). And that shows the imperfection of earthly scientist’s knowledge and should keep them from becoming proud with their puny knowledge. But alas, “Knowledge puffeth up…” - (1Cor.8:1). The more knowledge man has the more proud he becomes and the farther he gets away from God and God’s truth in His beloved Son. Very few scientists get saved because they’re proud in their tiny knowledge and think being saved is foolishness “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom know not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness” - (1Cor.1:18,21 and 3:19). August means “exalted” and exalted man exploded the first A-bomb on August 6, 1945.
Our all- knowing omniscient God’s first commandment to Adam was not to eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil under penalty of death - (Gen.2:17). Out of all the sins that could have named the tree, God’s wisdom named it “knowledge” because that is the sin that not only brought death to our first parents, it will soon bring death to the whole world in one hour. And you say, preacher, there is nothing wrong with man seeking knowledge. But Adam and Eve didn’t need knowledge. They had each other to love and were not lonely and they had a beautiful garden and they had eternal life by eating of the “tree of life” and there was no death. God doesn’t want smart people, He wants godly people that will obey His word, for our Heavenly Father “knows” best. He doesn’t want man to try and learn the knowledge of God and play God and use it for evil. Man doesn’t have the wisdom to use knowledge wisely.
Satan beguiled Eve into eating of the forbidden tree of knowledge and so she died. He told her that if she ate it, her eyes would be opened by knowledge and she would become as wise as God - “ye shall be a gods”, to be a god herself. Satan also beguiled the scientists in Los Alamos (the cottonwood tree of knowledge) in 1943-45, to get them to build the first atomic bomb. Oppenheimer chose the word “trinity” as the code name for the project, the very word for the triune God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Man’s knowledge was puffing him up with pride- man was playing God. Man now had the knowledge of the powerful, little atom, God’s basic building block for creating the universe. Man was created of billions of atoms and so God named the first man Adam and now the sons of Adam split the atom and made two atom bombs that killed thousands of people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Then they continued to eat from the tree of knowledge and made the “H-bomb” which is a thousand times more powerful and then came the “neutron bomb” and maybe next will be the “neutrino bomb.” And soon the whole earth and our atmosphere will burn with a nuclear chain reaction at Armageddon. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements (plutonium and uranium) shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved and the elements shall melt with fervent heat” - (2Pet.3:10,12).
Our omniscient God knew what the end of man’s hunger for knowledge would be. Eating from the tree of knowledge is the most evil and deadliest sin of all. It killed Adam and soon will kill most everyone on earth with a fiery nuclear Armageddon. “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God; how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” - (Rom.11:33). Only God has the wisdom to use knowledge in a wise way, not sinful man.
Before Armageddon will come the righteous wrath of God upon wicked, sinful man and yet even in His wrath He is trying to get men to repent of their sins and get saved by Christ and not burn up the world in their knowledge. See how God shows us His omniscience with the seven vials of His wrath during the Great Tribulation in (Rev.15-16). “And seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth forever and ever” - (Rev.15:6,7). Seven angelic ministers of God are clothed in the pure, white righteousness of God, each with a golden vial of God’s wrath to be poured on the earth. God is showing Himself as the master scientist of the universe with His white-coated angels with vials of chemicals in God’s laboratory, using God’s science and knowledge to perform these miracles of wrath.
God’s judgment is cold and calculating, planned before He created the world. The heat of God’s anger is not red-faced, non-thinking and done in haste. It isn’t the hot-tempered, passionate, loss of control kind of wrath like men’s. God’s judgment is in absolute justice and righteousness “…Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shall be, because thou hast judged thus. And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments” - (Rev.16:5,7). O the Omni-science of God Almighty.
How much science does it take to place grievous sores upon 6 billion people who have the mark of the Beast? How much science do you need to know in order to turn all the water on earth to blood? How much science is necessary to make the sun scorch men with great heat and turn Antichrist’s kingdom into darkness? How much science is necessary to dry up the Euphrates River and cause the greatest earthquake in history and cause every mountain and island to disappear and cause 100 lb. hailstones to fall? O the Omni-science of a holy God in vengeance. And to know that man deserves it.
Because God has Omni-science, He created man with a con-science that He gave no other earthly creature. Conscience is a person’s inner awareness of conforming or not conforming to the will of God. An unsaved man’s conscience and mind is defiled “… but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled” - (Tit.1:15). It is even more defiled in these end days -“ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” - (1Tim.4:1,2). So that’s why it’s so deadly for scientists to eat from the tree of knowledge with a defiled mind and conscience. But when Christ saves us He washes us from our sins in His own blood and cleanses our conscience. “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed in pure water” - (Heb.10:22). Nuclear science has no conscience. The bond between science and the life and death of man is very important and has been shown with Adam and Eve. Satan conned man in the tree of knowledge (science) and we also see that with the word “con-science”. Satan was the first sinner in God’s universe whose mind and conscience was defiled. He’s an evil genius with no conscience.
We are told to expect an increase in knowledge in the end times just before The Tribulation and Armageddon. “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” - (Dan.12:4). God is now unsealing the books of Revelation and Daniel in these end times and giving His saints end-time truth.
Why will sinful man not believe in the resurrection of Christ? Paul asked the king -“Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?” - (Acts 26:8). Surely our God who created the heavens and the earth can also raise the dead. Surely the God who created man can give him life again. In our triune God are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge and He has written this treasure in the KJ Bible. In order for you to be recreated and resurrect unto eternal life, you must be born again and become a new creature spiritually before you die. Your old sinful inner creature is recreated by God into a holy man of God.
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell, and become a new creature in Christ having eternal life. Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” - (2Cor.5:17). Instead of eternal death in the lake of fire - (Rev.20:14,15), you can have eternal life - “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” - (Rom.6:23).
