SEARCHING THE UNSEARCHABLE
2 Corinthians 12:4—(Paul)…..was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
When you, the new creation discover the law of perfect liberty in Christ to speak the unlawful, unspeakable, invisible, the unutterable, then the impossible happens.
Flesh and blood man can’t see it, hear it, speak it, though it comes from within man, but having none of the qualities of man. God is without measure. To speak, tell, or hear God is not for man who is measured by a cage of time and space, but for the thing that man becomes that has no measure, the new creation that has none of the limitations that define man. This new creature receives the Spirit without measure. In order to receive this gift God has to bring us beyond our known or familiar human boundaries.
“As the oracles of God we are charged with the duty of searching the unsearchable to declare the unspeakable, so men will hear the unutterable, and then turn and do the impossible.”—Tony
Malachi 2:7—For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. God makes no secret that he hides things. Proverbs 25:2 —It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter. The matter that God has hidden is his glory, which rewards them that find it with the honor of a king; if you can find it. God has hidden enough of his glory to make every man, woman, boy, and girl a king. There is much assurance and hope for success here because our calling is to be both kings and priests unto God. Rev. 1:1-11—Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
WE HAVE TO SUFFER WITH HIM IF WE ARE TO REIGN WITH HIM
That knowledge of God is hidden within us that can make us kings: no exaggeration here. The kingdom of God is from within you and me. The kingdom is there, it just needs a king; and that’s exactly what God has made of us in Christ. This is the upgrade or promotion that Christ brings to us. We first have to acknowledge it against all manner of contradictions against us by the knowledge base of earth that is contrary to us.
If you had a headache you would not need to make any search of scripture to find where in scripture, or heaven your head is aching nor would you need speak any word of God in agreement with the fact that your head is aching. Those things we know already to our undoing. That knowledge is from down here below on earth, in you, specifically in your body. That knowledge doesn’t reside it heaven, the cure for it reside in heaven, in Christ and at the present time of that affliction, your healing for that particular malady needs to be brought down from heaven to you. The knowledge base of things on earth below makes us either brutish or otherwise unclean. Jeremiah 10:14—“Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image:”That portion of earth’s knowledge base that we manage to sequester for ourselves define us, and defiles us as we reflect it in our actions and our speech.My headache, my toothache, my arthritis, my cancer, my high blood pressure, my rheumatism, my U-name-it:
they that say such things declare plainly that they seek not a country, but an affliction. They own it to be theirs. We believe also and there we speak the hidden wisdom of Christ the power of God to deliver. Isaiah 33:24—And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity (for the sting of death (sickness and disease) is sin—by that person, or by Adam which then passed upon all. Let the poor say that I am rich, and the weak—that I am strong.
In order to inherit the kingdom of heaven Paul says I die daily and beseeches us to do the same. 2 Corinthians 1:8-9—For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
Romans Chapter 12:1—I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
