Heavenly Wisdom Sets One Free
Thursday, April 30th, 2015
It is disheartening to see many Christians who do not understand the role of John the Baptist properly. As a sad result, they are unable to believe in the Gospel of the water and the Spirit. Like them, the Pharisees had also misunderstood John the Baptist and Jesus. The Lord said, “John came neither eating nor drinking and they say he has a demon. The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they say, ‘look a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ but wisdom is justified by her children. Mt 11:18-19. We humans are judged to be wise or foolish according to our acts. Who is then wise? The wise are those who understand the will of God and follow it with an obedient heart. They are the ones who have the wisdom of Heaven even though they are devoid of earthly wisdom or knowledge.
The Bible says that wisdom of Heaven is found in the Gospel of the water and the Spirit, which has perfectly saved all mankind from all their sins once and for all. This wisdom was accomplished and revealed by Jesus Christ and John the Baptist when they were on this earth.
The method by which God had saved mankind from sin is the wisdom of Heaven. It simply implies that Jesus Christ came to this earth and saved mankind once and for all through His baptism received from John the Baptist, His death on the cross and His resurrection. In other words, God’s wisdom is all contained in the Gospel Truth of the water and the Spirit. 1 John 5:4-8.
To fulfill all these things, God the Father sent His Son to this earth. Now to raise the Son as the Saviour of mankind and to fulfill this work, the father had sent John the Baptist to this earth six months earlier. God was preparing the way for our salvation by sending John six months prior to Jesus’ birth. This was to fulfill our salvation through the baptism Jesus would receive later from John the Baptist. John prepared and waited for 30 years to baptize Jesus Christ. Until he turned 30, he had waited for the day he would baptize Jesus. This is because the sons of the High Priests of the OT could be anointed and assume his duties only after they reach 30 years of age. Num 4:3. To fulfill our salvation, God revealed His amazing wisdom in His Scriptures. We must therefore realise how wisely God had saved everyone all over the world from all their sins. None other than this is God’s wisdom. This is the very wisdom of God and the love that He fulfilled with His justice.
