KNOWLEDGE IS
POWER

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..……” (Hosea 4:6a)

Knowledge
indeed is power, so the quest for knowledge is a worthy pursuit as it is many
times the one factor that distinguishes the potentials of one person from that
of another.

Influence
comes with knowledge, and so does the capacity to lead others. People who have
sought to exercise power over others have succeeded largely by denying the
subjects access to knowledge or information, or the ability to independently
acquire knowledge.

It is true
in the physical as it is in the spiritual, and since we straddle both realms,
we are invited to show ourselves approved of God through study, a workman that
does not need to be ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15), rightly dividing the Word of
Truth.

While study
makes us stand shoulder to shoulder in a competitive world, the
self-application required will not always be leisurely as could be seen in
Ecclesiastes 12:12 “My son, there is something else to watch out for. There is
no end to the writing of books, and too much study will wear you out” (GNB).

Ecclesiastes
12:9 says “But because the Philosopher was wise, he kept on teaching the people
what he knew. He studied proverbs and honestly tested their truth”, which is the
complete opposite of the methods of our leaders today.

NOTE BOOK: The fear of The Lord is the beginning of Wisdom; and the knowledge of The
Holy One is understanding! (Proverbs 9:10)

  2. BUMMYLA says:

    Thank You Ricklee for your comment! We are all gifts to mankind and vessels unto honour!

  3. Are you talking about gaining knowledge of the bible, or just knowledge in general? This whole thing would make more sense to me if you were talking about gaining knowledge of the bible.

    Thank you!

    • BUMMYLA says:

      Primarily, gaining knowledge of the Word of God and what it says concerning you. And secondarily, gaining the general knowledge with a discerning spirit, to differentiate between good and evil knowledge
