Scripture of the Day - January 26, 2012

Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints...

Paul prayed this prayer for the saints of the church. (In the Bible days 'saint' is what they called people who went to church. Saint refers to those who have separated themselves to God.) Anyway, he prayed for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of JESUS. There are people who have claimed 'revelation' and have come up with new doctrines and whole new religions even. This revelation did not come from God obviously, because anything that strays from the word of God is not a revelation from Him. Think about it! Why would God give us His word then 'reveal' other things to certain people? That just doesn't make sense... even to the natural mind.
Folks we need the eyes of our understanding enlightened, we need that light shining bright! We have to understand what we have in Jesus and the inheritance we have in heaven because of HIM.
