Ironically the gnosis informational-knowledge of God and His will that Jesus said the Jewish rabbis “diligently-searched the scriptures [erroneously] supposing that in them they could echo hold-to-have zoe genuine-life everlasting” (a) – see New Covenant-BT7, that even Gentiles boast that “all of us possess,” Paul says only “puffs up or swells their heads” (b). Instead, what Paul prays for Christians to acquire is “to definitively/wholly, experientially, relationally ginosko know the unconditional-love of Christ that is huperballo ‘far-throwing, extremely surpassing’ [that] of/belonging to gnosis informational-knowledge in order that you may be filled-completion eis ‘toward and reaching the goal of’ ALL the abundant-fullness (the context of our filling) of God . . . [so I strongly urge you to] presently/ongoingly become filled-to-completion by-the-means-of [singular] Spirit,” which is Spirit-Baptism (c). We must go deeper than bible-study – see Knowledge-BT2 and – BT8. Without this, we will be just as sinful as the scribes & Pharisees were – see Knowledge-BT9! <Notes> a) John 5:39, b) 1 Corinthians 8:1, c) Ephesians 3:19, 5:18.
As a humbled Pharisee of Pharisees, Paul had come to the point where he “counted ALL things [all his “might and power” education] to be a loss because of the huperecho ‘far-beyond holding-to-have’ of The Gnosis informational-knowledge of/belonging-to Christ Jesus my Lord, whom I have lost all things and/coupled counted them as excrement-rubbish” (a). This is a direct attack of Gentile Gnosticism and the Secret Mystery religions but also of the rabbinical bible-study approach – see Knowledge – BT5. Oh, that we would have the same epiphany! See also Knowledge-BT1. <Notes> a) Philippians 3:8.
There is a completely-different-in-kind gnosis informational-knowledge and/coupled wisdom available in the New Covenant – see Knowledge-BT3. It is “the fragrance of the gnosis info-knowledge of/belonging-to Christ” (a); the “gnosis info-knowledge of/belonging-to salvation” (b); the “every kind of gnosis info-knowledge which we were already made rich in Him”(c); for “IN Him are hidden ALL the treasures of wisdom and/coupled gnosis info-knowledge” (d); the “gnosis info-knowledge of/belonging-to God” that “all arrogant thoughts/arguments raised against this” would be “taken captive of to obey Christ” (e). <Notes> a) 2 Corinthians 2:14, b) Luke 1:77, c) 1 Corinthians 1:5, d) Colossians 2:3, e) 2 Corinthians 10:5.
This “gnosis knowledge” is also closely related to prophetic ‘seeing’ of Christians “presently/ongoingly having prophetic powers and/coupled having had [with ongoing effects] eido ‘mentally ‘seeing’ to perceive/know’ all hidden-mysteries kai and/thus ALL The Gnosis Knowledge” (a) – see Knowledge-BT10. Now this is related to Christians “coming to others” within church-assemblies “speaking in tongues” to “benefit others” by bringing “a revelation or gnosis info-knowledge or prophecy or teaching” (b), especially since “a logos message of wisdom” and “a logos message of gnosis info-knowledge” are some of the Spirit’s grace-gifts to Christians for Body-of-Christ ministry (c). This probably drove the bible-scholars crazy enough to mock the apostles and true prophets of God, as Isaiah 28 predicted they would do in Acts 2:13 – see Bible Info-BT2 and New Covenant Ways – BT16 and Least Among You – BT8. I believe it still drives bible-students crazy enough to do the same! <Notes> a) 1 Corinthians 13:2, b) 1 Corinthians 14:6, c) 1 Corinthians 12:8.
Jesus said the “hidden, mysterious secrets of the kingdom,” the heavenly gnosis info-knowledge, wisdom, and sunesis ‘connect-to-dots’ understanding “are kept hidden from the so-called “wise and understanding ones,” whether Jewish or Gentile, but “revealed to little-children,” even those before reading age, or the other “least among you” like them – see Knowledge-BT4, acquired simply through proseuche conversational-prayer in a “yoked” koinonia relationship with the Lord (a) – see Knowledge-BT6. The Holy Spirit is The Revealer and what makes prophecy possible, which we are to “zealously-desire more than any other grace-gift” (b). The entire gospel logos message of trusting-relying-faith for righteousness that was given to the apostles and prophets came into being that way (c)! <Notes> a) Matthew 11:25, 13:11, 16:17; Mark 4:11; Luke 8:10, 10:21; 1 Corinthians 2:10; Ephesians 1:17; Colossians 1:26, b) Luke 1:67, 2:26; Acts 2:17-18, 19:6, 28:25; 1 Corinthians 2:10, 14:1, 32; Galatians 3:23; Ephesians 1:17, 3:5; Colossians 1:26; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 19:10, 22:6, c) 1 Corinthians 2:10; Galatians 3:23; Ephesians 3:5; Colossians 1:26.
If the entire emphasis of the New Testament is leading us away from the failed gnosis info-knowledge of the rabbinical bible-study approach to the Old Testament, and leading us instead to direct, revealed gnosis info-knowledge of God and His will by-the-means-of the Holy Spirit, the very nature of prophecy, even of tongues, then why are any of us putting all this effort into bible-study? Why are we trying to be like the failed scribes & Pharisees! This is the revelation that I came to awhile back, as well as others like Mark Virkler in the introduction to his great book 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice. There is a night & day difference between bible-study and the prophetic ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ that God intended – see Knowledge-BT11.
Once I stopped making bible-study my primary source after I had done a comprehensive study on knowledge and realized that experientially, relationally ginosko knowing God, even genuinely as epignosko, thru prophetic eido “mentally ‘seeing’ to perceive/know’ and akouo ‘listening/hearing to understand/know’ was the actual knowledge of the New Covenant to seek in order to have “The Gnosis Knowledge of/belonging to the Lord,” then I realized I had become just like a scribe & Pharisee with my 5 bible colleges of training! Yuck! I also realized that I had made a LOT of New Testament writers my “Teacher” and living my life by their experiences of the Lord, but Jesus said “One is Your Teacher” and in context this was clearly the “Spirit of the Lord, the actual “Promise” of the New Covenant that Jesus constantly reminded His disciples – see Knowledge-BT12.
Then I found out thru a comprehensive study on proseuche Conversational-Prayer and another comprehensive study on having a koinonia Relationship with God and another comprehensive study on The Rhema Word of God and Prophecy and how it radically differs from The Logos Word of God, and after reading Mark Virkler’s book, then I had the trusting-relying-faith to start asking, asking, asking, seeking, seeking, seeking, and knocking, knocking, knocking for “the real thing” – that’s what the Greek present participles mean when Jesus tells us to pursue “the incredibly great free-gift of the Holy Spirit!” That’s when I started getting My God-Messages! Save yourself a LOT of time – just read those BLOGS and His book and start “Practicing the Presence of God” like Brother Laurence wrote about!
