But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11 KJV
Paul admonishes us to endure hardship as a soldier. Why Endurance? It enables us to finish what we started (Phil. 3:13-14) and enables us to follow Christ to the later (Heb. 12:2). While you are enduring, it has to be with hope. Endurance without hope is worthless.
God expects that when we receive His Word, we should live accordingly. When we have words in Scripture that show us principles of life or that give us definite instructions from God, we have to take heed; we have to take such words seriously and live by them. His instructions make great.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the ETERNAL SPIRIT offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Hebrews 9:14 KJV
And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honored him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:”
Daniel 4:34 (Webster).
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost,…thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. Acts 5:3-4 KJV
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God [do not offend or vex or sadden Him], by Whom you were sealed (marked, branded as God’s own, secured) for the day of redemption (of final deliverance through Christ from evil and the consequences of sin). Ephesians 4:30 AMPC
The word wisdom here is ‘phronesis’, which means a mindset. A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to situations and his interpretation of those situations. It’s also known as prudence or practical wisdom. The believer is to mature to a level where he now has a mental attitude that influences his actions in any given situation.
Virtue refers to moral excellence. It is the intentions behind our actions. True faith will result in a desire to do the will of God, to please Him and to do what is right. Unless a person has a genuine desire to do the right thing, all progress will stop. The question is, are we pursuing virtue with all diligence?
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall TEACH you all things, and bring all things to your REMEMBRANCE, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:26 KJV
