The Wisdom of God, His hidden plan, Paul says, is completely unknowable to the wisdom of this world. Had they known God’s plan, the rulers of this world would never have crucified Jesus, the Lord of Glory.As the prophet Isaiah had said, long before Jesus came to this earth, long before Paul wrote his expositions of the Gospel, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT
Just as a person’s deepest thoughts are known only to himself, Paul explains, so God’s thoughts are known only by the Spirit of God. But, wonder of wonders, God has chosen to reveal these things to us by His Spirit; in fact, God has given us His Spirit to make known to us these things that God has freely given to us.
To those who have faith in Jesus, to those who love God, the Holy Spirit reveals the mysteries of God, enabling us to live as children of God while yet on earth. And we will go deeper and deeper into the unsearchable riches of Christ for all eternity.
