  5. What Does God Know?

"What Does God Know?"
Whatever He Chooses!

What does God Know is not a philosophical question. 
However, the skeptics cannot seem to accept or grasp that God is the Great All-Knowing, "I AM."

Instead of learning about God then trusting and obeying, they attempt to compare God's powers and intelligence to their own, then decide how much ability and knowledge they will assign Him.

They speculate that if God is aware of the problems and painful conditions of the world He would surely do something, and therefore cannot be omniscient. 

One can understand how those who worship false gods can reach that conclusion, but it is not true for our living all-knowing God. Trying to learn of God’s powers through mankind’s ability is an act of futility; it cannot be done.

This trend is becoming more common than one might think, and just a few searches on the Internet will show that this 

God welcomes honest questions, however, nowhere does Scripture suggest that we are to doubt His ability and knowledge, in fact, just the opposite; to ask such questions only tends to prove a lack of understanding about Him.

A Bible teacher friend of mine recently said to his class, "some in the Church doubt the omniscience of God," then asked, "do you believe God is all-knowing?"

  • Some of the class did not have any idea
  • Others, perhaps He does not know everything
  • A few were sure He has all knowledge. 

"I believe He is omniscient and can know anything He chooses to know."

We Are Not to Evaluate God's Capabilities

I wonder how anyone can have the biblical concept of God and yet question His abilities. Is it not a pathetic lack of understanding to question the knowledge of the One who spoke the earth and entire universe into existence?  

God created humanity after His likeness and gave them a spirit, soul, mind, and intelligent speech, and later, gave His life to make it possible for them to have eternal life. 

Scripture tells us that God is beyond finding out and that His ways are above our ways. Why waste time on things we do not understand and are beyond our ability to find out?  

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” (Rom 11:33).

James 1:5 tells us: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God”.  

God is the source of wisdom and knowledge. How foolish to question His abilities.

According to Scripture

  • God knows our thoughts and next words, (Psa 139). 
  • He knows our needs before we ask, (Matt 6:8), 
  • He knows every sparrow that falls, (Matt 10:29)
  • The hairs of your head are all numbered, (Matt 10:30). 

There are deep Bible mysteries, but they are not to be exploited in ignorance and misconception as some do. 

The secrets of God should be appreciated as a part of His superiority over humanity, knowing, that His ways are higher than our ways and beyond the ability of humans to understand.  

It is spiritually unhealthy to question God at any level, and Christians should not accept unproven ideas and theories. We are to find our answers in God's Word, not unlearned spiritually confused opinions

Even though many may simply be attempting to find answers by their own abilities, there are some who viciously try to discredit God and His Word in any way they can.

It is best to stay away from anyone who is continually trying to find something wrong with God and His Word. Following them can only lead to confusion and pain. 

No matter where the information comes from, look up the answers in Scripture and read them with your own eyes. Then you will not need to take anyone's opinion, and the Truth will remain indelibly etched in your heart and mind. 

In Summary

God is beyond our understanding. He has unlimited power, authority, infinite knowledge, and is not limited by time or space.

We did not create God; He created us. We are not capable of deciding what He knows or does not know. Rather than challenging Him on matters beyond our ability we should search and believe the Bible, and trust and obey. 

Accept only His Word as the final authority; then allow His Promises to come alive in your life. He is the One who offers infinite wisdom, joy, hope, and Everlasting life.
