God’s Wisdom Revealed Through His Spirit EGP Blog post from October 25, 2012

1 Corinthians 2:7–12 (NLT)

[7] No, the wisdom we speak of is the secret wisdom of God,° which was hidden in former times, though he made it for our benefit before the world began. [8] But the rulers of this world have not understood it; if they had, they would never have crucified our glorious Lord. [9] That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”° [10] But we know these things because God has revealed them to us by his Spirit, and his Spirit searches out everything and shows us even God’s deep secrets. [11] No one can know what anyone else is really thinking except that person alone, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. [12] And God has actually given us his Spirit (not the world’s spirit) so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.
