The Omniscient God
God knows all things.
He sees everything under the heavens (Job28:24) and
Knows all the past, the present and the future and
He knows all thoughts, the secrets of the heart, words, deeds and even dreams (Job34:25; Ps44:21).
The wicked says to himself that God never notices so does not know and will not judge (Ps10:4, 11)
But faith is acknowledging the omniscience of God (Jer23:24) and
The life of this faith is being conscious of God’s eyes in every moment and living under His supervision and protection.
After Adam was deceived by the serpent and ate the forbidden fruit and hid in the Garden,
God asked him, “Where are you?” not because He did not know but rather
It was for Adam to answer honestly, “Here I am,” and be saved (Ge3:9-11).
This was done all according to God’s plan for
The Son of God to come as the offspring of the woman (Ge3:15) and
Judge Satan the devil and save mankind (1Jn3:8).
The work of saving mankind began when God gave the Law to Israel.
The commandment came and sin sprang to life (Rm3:19, 7:9), and
The prophets, the seers warned those who feared the price of sin, death (Ps90:8)
To turn from their evil ways and observe the commands (2Ki17:13).
But they trusted in their wickedness saying that no one saw them (Is47:10) for
They had forgotten the eyes of God.
The Bible carefully illustrates God’s omniscience through one event:
The dream that Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, had was
Revealed by God to Daniel in a vision (Da2:19-30), for
God not only knows all things but interprets them with perfect wisdom.
The forewarned destruction came to Israel suddenly (Is47:11) for
They ate detestable things in secret (Is65:4) and
Pleaded the prophets to not see what is right but prophesy illusions (Is30:10).
To Israel the Temple of Jerusalem was a great comfort for
It was where the eyes of God who knows the hearts of all men were night and day, and
He would hear and forgive whoever prayed there (1Ki8:29-38).
As such, when Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,”
He was hated by Israel but
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-21),
He would reveal that He is the Son of God who sees
Not only a limited place like the temple of Jerusalem where the name Jehovah was
But everywhere under the heavens those with faith and forgives them in the name Yeshua (Mt9:2-4).
For He is the Word in the beginning, the omniscient God who came as man (Jn1:1-2, 14),
During His public years He revealed that He is the God who sees and knows all things:
He saw Nathanael before he came to see Him (Jn1:48) and
The poor widow who gave all that she had to live on (Lk21:4);
He knew His power go out when the woman subject to bleeding touched Him (Lk8:46),
The scattering of the disciples (Mk14:27), the betrayal of Judas etc (Jn13:11, 21).
As He died on the cross, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), for
All that was going to happen to Him happened (Jn18:4) and that
He who came from God was now returning to God (Jn13:3), so declaring that He:
1) Knowing that He will receive His life back, laid it down according to the command (Jn10:17-18);
2) Judged the deceiver the devil (Ge3:4-6; Job11:11; Is14:12-15); and
3) Laid down His life for all men for the Father knows Him and He knows the Father (Jn10:15),
and shed His blood for souls to wash away their sins, their eyes to see clearly again (Jn9:7).
He resurrected and ascended to heaven and He is the Lamb on the throne.
His seven eyes like blazing fire see everything under the heavens (Rev1:14, 5:6).
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God who searches all things (1Co2:10-12), was sent as
The Overseer to the church which God brought with His own blood (Ac20:28).
The story of Ananias and Sapphira who were killed for lying to the church shocked the church and
Revealed that the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit are the one omniscient God, and
The dead will all stand before the great white throne, give account and be judged according to
What they had done as recorded in the books (Rm14:10-12; He4:13; 1Pe4:5; Rev20:11-12).
The Christian divulges all before the God who knows everything (Eph4:26-27; 1Jn1:8-10, 3:20),
Seeks mercy from God who knows how I am formed (Ps103:13-14); and
Being guided by God who knows my way (Job23:10; Ps139:3).
This ugly, lowly me…always making a decision but always failing!
But You know that I love You, Lord (Jn21:15-19).
Let us all never forget that we are always before Your eyes! Amen.
