My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me… (Hosea 4:6 KJV)

As we prepare to start the new course on “Approaches to Bible Study” at Deshen School of the Spirit this Saturday, let me seize the opportunity to revisit the importance of the knowledge of God.  Please reread Hosea 4:6. It says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”.

The message is very simple to understand. God’s people, which represents you and me today in Christ, are being destroyed because we lack knowledge. This is a strange portion of scripture that should catch your attention and warrant closer consideration. Do you believe what this verse is saying? Do you accept it as really true?

The overwhelming majority of the believers today do not fully appreciate the critical role of the knowledge of God in our spiritual lives. God is a God of knowledge (1 Samuel 2:3) and He created human beings as knowledgeable beings.  The human experience is closely related to knowledge. The knowledge of God brings the experience of the divine life and the revelation of God Himself.  We have known the power of prayer as the Body of Christ. We are yet to fully know and embrace the power of the knowledge of God.

There is tremendous value in the knowledge of God. It will save us from destruction and upgrade our lives spiritually and physically. Deshen Daily tomorrow will discuss one aspect of the operation of the knowledge of God in us. 


Why are the people of God destroyed for lack of knowledge?
