end through the proper means. Want proof? Run to the cross and look at Jesus. I Corinthians 1:20-21 says, Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. The cross of Jesus is the wisdom of God at work. 1 Corinthians 1:22-25 says, For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wise than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

GODS KNOWLEDGE IS DEEP. On June 17, 1972, five men were arrested for breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washing D.C. The fallout led to the resignation of PRESIDENT RICHARD M. NIXON. It is the first and only time the presidency has been resigned. This second-rate burglary erupted into a national scandal by the persistence of investigative reporters with two questions: What did the President know? And when did he know it? Lets ask these questions of God. WHAT DOES GOD KNOW? God is OMNISCIENT. God knows all things. There is nothing that God does not God. God knows all things known, unknown, and knowable. God knows all things past, present, and future. God knows all things actual, potential, and theoretical. God knows all things in heaven, on earth, and in hell. WHEN DID GOD KNOW IT? Gods perfect knowledge is ETERNAL. God has never learned anything. In eternity past, God knew all things. And when this hiccup of eternity called time is consummated, God will not know one thing in eternity future that he did not know in eternity past.

B. GOD IS TOO HIGH FOR YOU TO FIGURE OUT.

Verse 33 says, Oh, the depths of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! This exclamation declares that the God who is infinitely deep is transcendently high. Isaiah 55:8-9 says, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. God is too high for you to figure out.

HIS JUDGMENTS ARE UNSEARCHABLE. Judgments is a judicial term, which is often used to refer to the condemnation and punishment of sin. Yet the context here speaks of the judgments of God in a broader sense. It refers to Gods decrees or decisions. In the ancient world, the ruler was also the judge. So it is with God. And his judgments are unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28 says, Have you now known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding
