Revelation 3:1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds…
Jesus knows and yes He is God the Son. He possesses the attributes of God. One of these attributes is omniscience. He is all knowing.
This is οἶδα/oida in the Greek. It means: to see or to perceive with the eyes; to perceive by any of the senses; to pay attention, observe, inspect, examine; to know of anything; get knowledge, understand, perceive of any fact. (Strong’s Concordance)
Jesus absolutely perceives and knows everything completely!
God is omniscient. God knows all things completely, including past, present, future, actual, and possible. -Chester McCalley
Psalms 147:4-5 He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.
Imagine the number and vocabulary…
God knows all of us personally and in great detail. His omniscience encompasses many aspects of our lives and all other topics. God knows the number of hairs on our head. He knows about all of us before we were born to the number of days appointed in our lives. The following examples in Psalm 139 demonstrate the depth of God’s knowledge as it relates to our individual lives.
Psalms 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
The same concept of being known to God before conception is noted in regards to the prophet Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows every little detail of our lives, all 7 billion plus of us on planet Earth.
Psalms 139:2-4 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O LORD, You know it all.
Psalm 139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is too high, I cannot attain to it.
Psalm 139:17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
God knows all things as it relates to time. His knowledge extends across all aspects of time: past, present, and future.
Past-Acts 15:18 SAYS THE LORD, WHO MAKES THESE THINGS KNOWN FROM LONG AGO.
Present-Psalm 33:13 The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men;
Future-Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things have come to pass, now I declare new things; before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.”
Hypothetical-Matthew 11:23 And you people of Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to the place of the dead. For if the miracles I did for you had been done in Sodom, it would still be here today.
There are no secrets with God.
Psalm 90:8 You have placed our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your presence.
