The Omniscience Christ


He knows about everyone, everywhere. Everything about us is bare and wide open to the all seeing eyes of our living God; nothing can be hidden from Him to whom we must explain all that we have done.

~Hebrews 4:13, LNT


God has never learned and cannot learn because He knows it all.

~A.W. Tozer

We spend a lot of time, money and effort to keep things hidden from the eyes of men and rightfully so. I was talking to Fred Smith Sunday night about visiting a certain country overseas and he said, “I’ve been there and didn’t like it. They have no nudity laws and you see old folks walking around with no clothes on; women going topless and men wearing thongs. It is disgusting.” I for one have no problem with clothes and to be stripped naked in public is one of my greatest fears. Thank God for clothes, amen! Of course clothes work when it comes to hiding things from humans but nothing can be hidden from God. He not only sees our physical bodies, He sees our heart, our intent, and our deepest motive. We may be able to deceive people but God cannot be deceived; He knows everything there is to know about each of us.

I would not be able to sleep nights if someone other than Jesus has access to this personal and private information but I am very comfortable with Jesus knowing everything; matter of fact, I am thrilled and let me tell you why– I want someone to know me, someone who loves me unconditionally and who is looking our for my best interest. I want someone to know me who is understanding and sympathic, someone who would lay down their life for me. The good news is that I have all of this and more in Jesus. He knows me completely and yet He loves me.

Joe Stovall, a writer for OUR DAILY BREAD shared this last week in one of the daily devotions about an experience where he sat next to Dr. Billy Graham at a banquet. He asked Dr. Graham, “What one thing has brought you the greatest joy: was it preaching to millions or meeting with Presidents and heads of State?” Dr. Graham without hesitation said, “Neither, it was my daily fellowship with Jesus.” Stovall said, I was both convicted and challenged. So was I when I read the devotion. Dr. Graham spent time with the Jesus I described above. Can you imagine the joy and the sweet relief of being able to unburden your sin sick soul with the One who knows everything about you and yet loves you unconditionally and sacrificially? Trust me folks, the song writer hit the nail on the head, “No one cares for you like Jesus, there is no other friend so kind and true. No one else could take the sin and darkness from you. Oh how much He cares for you.”

  • OK, I got thinks backward yesterday: Jennifer Breedlove’s surgery is today at 3:30 at Crestwood in Huntsville. Jim Tanner’s surgery is Wednesday morning at Decatur Morgan County Hospital {Decatur General}. Jennifer is have a knee replaced and Jim is having surgery on his shoulder.
  • June and Charlene had their procedure and returned home. If I understood correctly, Charlene got a good report and June is not feeling so good. We are supposed to leave for St. Louis early Tuesday morning and I’m just hoping she can ride.
  • Joe David is in Gettysburg, PA. sitting under the teaching of Harry Reeder, a brilliant man. I think the Seminar is on leadership but Dr. Reeder is using Founding Fathers and Civil War Generals as models. I must add with some pride, he uses the SOUTH’s Generals as examples. The North didn’t have any worth emulating. So how did the yanks win, Lincoln employed a butcher {Grant} and a terrorist {Sherman}. I’m not bitter, just stating facts that you will never hear in a government class room.
