John 6:70-71 – Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
We are truly living in perilous times. The days are evil. But, guess what? God knows all about it! He sees and knows all things. Nothing is hidden from His eyes.
In having chosen His first 12 disciples, Jesus let’s them know upfront that He knew who they were. There was no need for any resumes or references, no interviews and no job applications to be filled out.
Why was this? Jesus already knows everything about us! That is one of the advantages of being the Sovereign God. Jesus said unto them, have not I chosen you twelve and one of you is a devil? Jesus knew everyone of them before He even chose them. He even knew that one of the ones he chose, Judas Iscariot was going to be His betrayer. Nothing is hidden from God.
Jesus knows everything about us. Do you believe that? If so, I guess there will be some changes in the things we do and say, the way we live and the way we treat others.
Jesus even knows our names. Isaiah 43:1-2 -But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are mine.
John 10:3 – The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
God knows, sees and hears any and everything. He hears our prayers and He sees our tears. Jesus even knows our enemies and their every scheme, plot and tactics. He knows everything!
He knows what we will do and ask before we ask it.
Matthew 6:8 -Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
2 King 19:27 – But I know your sitting down and your going out and coming in, and your raging against me.
John 1:48 – How do you know me? Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”
Psalm 139:1-4 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.
Luke 12:7a- And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.
Jeremiah 1:5 -“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
GOD KNOWS WHO YOU ARE!
We may walk in blindness to who we really are, but God does not walk in blindness.He is the light of the world and He alone sees us as though He is looking through a clear glass. He see and knows all about us. All our flaws, all our thoughts and deeds, all our good works,etc. He knows them all before they manifest.
The biblical picture of Satan is quite different from the popular one. In the Bible, he is not the comical cartoon creature with horns, tail, and pitchfork, dressed in a long red robe, but rather satan is an adversary, who is clever, crafty, deceptive and dangerous. The good news about satan is the fact that God knows everything about him too!
Do not be deceived into believing that God does not see and know all things, because He does.
Hopefully, many will believe in their hearts on today that God indeed knows who they are and that He sees and hears all things. I pray that this beliefin the Sovereignty of God will change the way we operate as a people, especially us that are of the faith.
1 Peter 5:8 – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Satan knows our weakness and exploits them to great advantage against us.
Matthew 24:24 -For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2 Corinthians 5:10 – For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.
Do not be deceived, God knows everything! His disciples are proof of that!
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you.
I love you all with the love of Christ.
