Most professing Christians have no understanding. They have no understanding of the Bible, even though they study the Bible, and they have no understanding of the kingdom of God, because they are not born again. They quote scripture, the Bible, out of context, they do not have any understanding about what the writers wrote about, they quote the Bible like parrots. They keep on reading,they keep on studying the Bible, without understanding. They keep on going to seminars and they listen to Bible teachers, who themselves are confused.
The reason is that they are not born again, they are not led by the Spirit of God. They run after people, they go after their own mind, and their own understanding, and they are utterly confused. They do not understand the kingdom of God, they do not know who Jesus Christ is. The reason is that they have never been born again; they have never obeyed the gospel of Jesus Christ, they never repented and turned away from sin and also from trusting in their own carnal minds. They have not repented from listening to other people and from running after the world. They have never turned to Jesus Christ and they have never started trusting Him. They’ve never asked Him for understanding, and therefore they will perish in their sins, and they will still not understand when they stand before Jesus Christ and He says to them:”Go away I never knew you you workers of wickedness.” They have no understanding because they do not obey Jesus Christ.
Stop trying to be clever. Stop trying to be wise in your own eyes. Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, repent, stop sinning, go on your knees before Jesus Christ and seek Him with all your heart.. Turn away from your own ways, from going after your own insight and understanding, from trusting in other people, and put your trust in Jesus. Pray seek Him with all your heart and obey Him. Be baptized in water and be filled with the Holy Spirit, so that He can guide you, so that your understanding and your wisdom can come from Jesus Christ Himself, or else you will perish in your own wisdom, your foolishness, because you trust in yourself and you refuse to obey and follow Jesus Christ. Without Jesus we can do nothing.
Get on your knees before Jesus. Cry out to Him. If we need wisdom we must ask of Him. He loves us and He cares for us and He will give it to us, but not as long as we trust in ourselves, not as long as we deny Him. Not as long as we go after our own mind and trust in other people. We have to fully trust in Jesus. We must ask Him for wisdom and understanding. Our dependence must be on Jesus. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Do you get your understanding from Jesus Christ, or do you run to other people? Put your trust in Jesus. Seek Him with all your heart, draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to you. He will give you wisdom and understanding. He will guide and lead you, He will teach you, but you have to repent and obey Him and then trust Him. Follow Him every day until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
