All Knowledge and Wisdom Comes Direct From God
These next set of verses are the heart and soul of this entire subject matter. All of these verses are telling us that all knowledge and all wisdom come direct from God and Jesus. The first verse will tell you that all the "treasures" of wisdom and knowledge are "hidden" in God the Father and Jesus Christ. Notice that God is comparing knowledge and wisdom with "treasures" and that this treasure is hidden within Himself.
This means that God and Jesus are the source of all Godly knowledge, and we have to first seek after the source in order to get this knowledge to be released to us. Here are some of the most profound verses in all of Scripture showing us that not only is God the source of all Godly knowledge and wisdom - but that He wants to release this knowledge to us!
Not only will God give you His knowledge - but He will make sure to give you the understanding of that knowledge and the wisdom to be able to use it! All of this can be given to you free of charge. All you have to do is be willing to seek after it, and seek to work with this knowledge to fully understand it and how it can apply to different parts of your life.
The last verse is Jesus telling us that if we will "abide in His word" - that we will then have the ability to know the truth and that the truth will be able to make us free. In other words - if you are willing to abide in the Bible, which is His Word, and seek to understand what you are reading - then you will be fully loaded with an incredible amount of truth covering a wide variety of topics and issues in your life. And once you have a lot of truth on a lot of different areas of your life - then that truth will help set and make you free because you will no longer be bound up with wrong thinking!
However, notice that Jesus says we have to "abide" in His Word in order to be able to get these truths worked into us. Abiding means that you are willing to spend a lot of regular quality time in reading the Bible for yourself and seeking to understand and implement these truths in your everyday walk with Him.
All of the above verses are giving us an incredible revelation in that God and Jesus are only too anxious to release Their knowledge to us if we are willing to do our part by seeking after it.

The Bible - Are Some of Its Words More Important Than Others?
Is the Old Testament equal in every way to the New Testament? Are the words of the prophets on a par with the words of Jesus?

A Gentle God
I was in my late teens when I first read Henry Barbusse's Under Fire, a novel set in the first world war trenches. It led me to consider the question: who does God listen to when He is bombarded with the prayers of different nations and religions, all equally convinced that He is on their side?As I grew up, the questions became more problematic: what kind of god are we talking about? Who would want to follow a supposedly supreme being whose followers regularly take up arms in his name?While Muslim leaders are urging their followers to look honestly at the health of their faith, Christian bishops are silent.

Catholic Voters Need to Rethink Morality

Biblically Speaking of Evil and National Security
We have been learning to think Biblically and speak Scripturally about evil in order to teach our children about the dangers present in our fallen world, while setting our affections on things above (Colossians 3:2) and staying Spiritually minded (Romans 8:6). We first noticed that "it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret" (Ephesians 5:12), so we don't speak of those things.

The Blessings Of God

Loyola the Luciferian
Ignatius Loyola - Luciferian or Heliopolitan:I kid you not!
