Under Gods Command

PAUL ADDRESSES CHURCH PROBLEMS (1:1-6:20)

1 Corinthians 2:6-8 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. (7) No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has ben hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.

(8) None of the rulers of this age understood it, for it they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Jesus was misunderstood and rejected by those whom the world considered wise and great. He was put to death by the rulers in Palestine-the high priest, King Herod, Pilate, and the Pharisees and Sadducees. Jesus rejection by these rulers has been predicted in Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not

and Zechariah 12:10, 11. “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be great, like the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.

Lets Bring it Home: God’s plan, however, is still hidden to unbelievers because they either refuse to accept it, choose to ignore it, or simply haven’t heard about it. Has Gods plan been revealed to you?
