FOOLS HATE KNOWLEDGE

Isaiah 45:11-13

11. Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, [even] my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.

God says, "Ask Me."

This is about Knowledge and Commitment. About the difference between "Not Caring" and "A Successful Christian Life."

God said His people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge.

The bible has a whole lot to say about knowledge.

Proverbs 24:5. A wise man [is] strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

Proverbs 1:22-23

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

We live in a time when the Word of God is scorned everywhere: Radio, Television, Newspapers, In School, In Government, EVERYWHERE!

In the world, people who believe in Jesus are looked down on as some weak, simple, unintelligent person who always comes out the loser in all situations.

The world puts great store in knowledge. They want to know all there is to know about everything. How to go to the stars, how to make a better mouse trap, how to do great things in science and technology, but

They DON'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT GOD!

FOOLS HATE KNOWLEDGE

And, in this case, what you don't know CAN hurt you!

If you don't know that Jesus saves, you can spend eternity in hell!

If you don't know that Jesus heals, you can spend your life in sickness and depression!

If you don't know that Jesus came to set the captive free, you can spend your life in bondage to satan and the devices of this world that kill and rob you!

Romans 11:25. For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

God says, "If you want to know about My sons, My people, ASK ME!"

"If you want to know about My plan for your life, ASK ME!"

"If you want to know about the works of My hands, the things I have done, ASK ME!"

Proverbs 8:10. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

Hosea 4:6. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Christians without knowledge are always on the edge of backsliding!

Christians without knowledge are always in trouble in their spiritual life!

Christians without knowledge can't witness with any power: Are at the mercy of the cults and unbelievers!

Christians without knowledge don't have POWER in their lives!

But I am determined that this group is not going to be a bunch of Christians without knowledge and without power!
