When I’m growing in the Lord, I use to wonder that Jesus has so much knowledge, understanding and wisdom, how HE could have got this? Then I came to know by sermons, that Jesus used to go to HIS synagogue and learnt scriptures while HE was very young and they further quoted that’s the reason HE could give a discourse in the Jerusalem Temple (Luke 2:42-52).
However when we meditate on the Gospel, one can find that does not seems to be true. The people who lived among HIM astonished about HIS wisdom while HE has NOT gone to scripture studies like Pharisee’s or Scribe’s kids.
John 7:15-18 New International Version (NIV)
15 The Jews there were amazed and asked, “How did this man get such learning without having been taught?” 16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. 17 Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. 18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.
Moreover, Jesus himself says that HE has learnt from HIS Father. (John 5:19-20, John 8:28, John 14:26)
Isaiah 50:4-5 King James Version (KJV)
4 The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. 5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
The prophecy about the Messiah by Prophet Isaiah, says that GOD woke HIM up morning by morning (Mark 1:35) and speaks in HIS ears to HEAR as the learned and has given the TONGUE of the learned to counsel to person who are weary / burdened.
My friend, can you see Jesus has given us tips to find out, whether a person who teaches doctrines is from, Daddy GOD or from their own!
If anyone seeks personal glory, speaks on their own and it’s not from Daddy God. However we come across today, many teachings, doctrine after doctrines, and teacher after teachers. How in this world one can find they are all comes from the Father GOD?
Notice, Jesus gives us a great TRUTH, anyone who does the WILL OF GOD will find out whether the teachings are from GOD or NOT!
Ooooh! My friend did you notice it? Only when we are in line with WILL OF GOD we can find out the teachings are from GOD or NOT!
Okay…so what is the WILL OF GOD by anyway? Are we doing the WILL OF GOD?
