The Seven Eyes Of The Lamb Part 2: The Eye Of Understanding.

| Spiry Tee

"And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord." (Isaiah 11:2 ESV).

Jesus gave the parable of the sower. In the parable, He spoke about a group of people who hear the word and don't understand it, who eventually lose it to satan's thievery and will not be able to bear fruit (Mathew 13:19). Understanding is very important. Knowledge or information is only of value if it can be intelligently comprehended.

You can not operate wisely without understanding, and that is the reason wisdom says "I am understanding". Understanding is one of the seven pillars of wisdom. Proverbs 8:12-14 says,"I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength."

Jesus possesses the Spirit of understanding. And He has lavished that same Spirit on us. "And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life." (I John 5:20 NKJV). There is an understanding we have that is divine. By it we can comprehend the mystery of godliness, the mystery of Christ and the mystery of the gospel through  which Christ has brought life and immortality to light.

By that understanding, we know God and His Son Jesus Christ. When we know God and His Son Jesus Christ fully, we possess life eternal. "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." (John 17:3 NKJV). We have today what David prayed for many years ago; "The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live." (Psalms 119:144 KJV). We have come alive because we recieved divine understanding through the Spirit of Christ.

I have received divine understanding to know that Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life.
