OMNISCIENCE – Part 4

The Infinitude of God in relation to Knowledge and Wisdom
 He Knows His Universe

 

Heb. 4:13  Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

 

Ps. 50:11 I know every bird in the mountains,
and the creatures of the field are mine.

 

Matt. 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.

 

Gen. 1:31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the sixth day.

 

Job 39:26-27 "Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings toward the south?  Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high?”

 

Job 37:16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?

 

Isa. 40:13-14  Who has understood the mind of the LORD, or instructed him as his counselor?  Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge or showed him the path of understanding?

 

Isa. 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

 

He Knows His Works
and the Thoughts of man

 

Matt. 19:4   "Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,'

 

Acts 15:8 God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us.

 

Jer. 16:17 My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.

 

Ps. 139:1-6  (Amp.) O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my down sitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off.  You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.  You have beset me and shut me in-behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me,
I cannot reach it.

 

Ps. 139:16-18  (Amp.) Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape,
when as yet there was none of them.

How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!  If I could count them, they would be more in number than the sand. When I awoke, [could I count to the end]

I would still be with You.

 

Job 31:4  Does he not see my ways and count my every step?

 

Matt. 10:30  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.


 He Knows the Future
The Bible is a Book of Prophecy

 

Acts 15:17-18  That the remnant of men may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who bear my name, says the Lord, who does these things‘ that have been known for ages.

 

Isa. 46:10  

   I make known the end
    from the beginning
,
    from ancient times,
    what is still to come.

I say:  My purpose will stand,
    and I will do all that I please.
