Bible reference (New Testament) ~ 1 Corinthians 2:6-15
(I’m writing this out mostly for my own benefit.)
I pray fresh revelation of the things of God would be shown to the leaders of my church and the congregation through the Spirit of God. I thank God this prayer has already been answered.
~ that the wisdom spoken of at church is the mystery of God (1 Cor. 2:7)
~ that we would know God’s plan which was made before the world began (1 Cor. 2:7)
~ that the Holy Spirit who searches out everything would show us God’s deep secrets (1 Cor. 2:10)
~ that we would know the wonderful things God has freely given us (1 Cor. 2:12)
~ that we would evaluate all things (1 Cor. 2:15)
~ that we would have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:15)
1 Corinthians 2:
6 Yet when I am among mature believers, I do speak with words of wisdom, but not the kind of wisdom that belongs to this world or to the rulers of this world, who are soon forgotten. 7 No, the wisdom we speak of is the mystery of God—his plan that was previously hidden, even though he made it for our ultimate glory before the world began. 8 But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord. 9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.”
10 But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11 No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12 And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.
13 When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. 14 But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 15 Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others.
