TRUTH: More about the Manifold Wisdom of God


Ephesians 3:10 tells us that God reveals or shares His wisdom with the purpose that “His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.” The fact of the matter is that wants us to know the TRUTH: Christ is the Manifold Wisdom of God. He will use His church to reveal that to rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms. Along the way, we get the benefit of knowing God. This is why it is vitally important that one believe in the one true God, so the right character is revealed and shown to man as well as those in the heavenly realms. Our purpose as followers of Jesus is much bigger than we realize. Our purpose in living for Christ is of earthly and heavenly significance. We cannot fully comprehend the wisdom bound in Christ, but an effort to reveal TRUTH: More about the Manifold Wisdom of God, I submit the following to you.

Again, manifold speaks to a great variety of kind. Wisdom or sophia refers to the broad and full of intelligence; used of the knowledge of very diverse matters. Of wisdom, Vine’s Expository Dictionary conveys the following:

That was TRUTH: More about the Manifold Wisdom of God so is this.

Paul is sharing God’s plan for redeeming the fallen world through the church as we see in Ephesians 3:10.  Through Jesus’ incarnation, crucifixion and ascension, salvation is possible and personal for every person (Ephesians 2:4–7). Furthermore, Paul speaks of sharing more wisdom about reconciling two groups, Jews and Gentiles. He does that by revealing His wisdom that both groups can be seen as not enemies or in opposition but as those unified in faith (Ephesians  2:13–18). In that passage, we are told “For he himself is our peace”. Jesus brought peace with God and peace with man. Not only so, but He also brought unity between former enemies characterizes and symbolizes how He unifies man with Himself as well as with one another. Unity is wisdom.  That unity is to demonstrate to  the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms as well as those of us on earth God’s plan  (Eph. 3:9–10). The church is supposed to work together to reveal God’s power – that power that is at work within us to enable us to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine” (Eph. 3:20).  TRUTH: More about the Manifold Wisdom of God than I can explain.
