They weren’t given Knowledge

Matthew 13:11

11 And answering, He said to them, To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but it has not been given to those.

1 Corinthians 2:7-8

But we speak the wisdom of God having been hidden in a mystery, which God predetermined before the ages for our glory,

8 which none of the rulers of this age has known. For if they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;

Deuteronomy 29:4-5

Yet Jehovah has not given to you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, until this day.


5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your garments have not worn out from off you, and your sandal has not worn away off your foot

John 3:3 5 8

Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated from above, he is not able to see the kingdom of God.

5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, If one is not generated out of water and Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.

The Spirit breathes where He desires, and you hear His voice; but you do not know from where He comes, and where He goes; so is everyone having been generated from the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 4:6

Because it is God who said, “Out of darkness Light shall shine,” the One who shone in our ( The Children of Promise) hearts to give the illumination of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Isa. 42:6, 7, 16

Isaiah 42:16

And I will make blind ones go by a way that they did not know. I will make them go down into paths they never knew. I will put darkness into light before them, and crooked places a level place. I do these things to them and do not forsake them

Amos 3:2

You only have I known of all the families of the earth. On account of this I will call all your iniquities to account.

John 6:37-39

All who the Father gives to Me shall come to Me, and the one coming to Me I will not cast out, not ever,


38 for I have come down out of Heaven, not that I should do My will, but the will of Him who sent Me.


39 And this is the will of the Father sending Me, that of all that He has given Me, I shall not lose any of it, but shall raise it up in the last day.

John 8:19

Then they said to Him, Where is Your father? Jesus answered, You neither know Me, nor My Father. If you had known Me, then you also would have known My Father.

John 10:26

But you do not believe, for you are not of My sheep, (John 3:3-8) even as I said to you.

Luke 10:21-22

21 In the same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit, and said, I praise You, Father, Lord of Heaven and of earth, that You hid these things from the sophisticated and learned and revealed them to babes; yes, Father, because so it was pleasing before You.


22 All things were given over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is if not the Father; and who is the Father, if not the Son, and he to whom the Son may desire to reveal Him

15 Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life on behalf of the sheep.

John 16:3

And they will do these things to you because they do not know the Father nor Me.

John 17:2-3

Even as You gave to Him authority over all flesh, so that to all which You gave to Him, He may give to them everlasting life.

3 And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the One whom You sent.

John 17:9

9 I ask concerning them; I do not ask (pray) concerning the world, but concerning the ones whom You have given to Me, because they
are Yours

John 17:25

Righteous Father, indeed the world did not know You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.

1 Corinthians 2;14

But a natural man (Adam’s spiritually dead descendants) (John 8:44) (Genesis 2:17) does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 1:18

18 For the Word of the cross is foolishness to the ones perishing, but to us (The Children of Promise) being saved it is the power of God

The Cross of Christ in general is foolishness to a Natural Man; but also, in terms of it being effectual, meaning, payment for sin was actually accomplished without any contribution or effort from those persons He represented, The unconditionally chosen Children of Promise from before the foundation of the world. The Father chooses, The Son redeems (who The Father chooses)The effectual Cross of Christ and His imputed Righteousness), The Spirit regenerates ( whom the Father chooses and The Son redeems). Matthew 1:21 Romans 9:8 John 3:3-8 John 6:37-44 Ephesians 1:4

Why would the omniscient Lord of Glory pay for the sins of some that end up in Hell? He wouldn’t then be a just God and a Savior because he would send people to Hell for whom the sins were paid.

If He actually died effectually for no one and had to wait for a response from the sinner, then salvation would no longer be a gift; but one of debt, through the work or effort of the sinner; but we know from John 6:65 that no one comes to Jesus unless it is given to him by The Father. So, if it was up to Natural Man, Jesus could have been waiting forever and consequently could have died for no one.

Matthew 11:27

All things were given over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father, except the Son, and to whomever the Son purposes to reveal Him.

Galatians 1:15-16

But when God was pleased, He having separated me from my mother’s womb, and having called me through His grace, Isa. 49:1


16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the nations, immediately I did not confer with flesh and blood

Matthew 16:16

16 And answering, Simon Peter said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.

17 And answering, Jesus said to him, Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not reveal it to you, but My Father in Heaven.

Romans 10:2-3

For I testify to them that they have zeal to God, but not according to knowledge.


3 For not knowing the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God.

Luke 23:34

34 And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. And dividing His garments, they cast a lot. Psa. 22:18

Romans 9:16

So, then, it is not of the one willing, nor of the one running, but of the One having mercy, of God.

Romans 9:18

So, then, to whom He wills, He shows mercy; but to whom He wills, He hardens

Romans 10:1-4

¶ Brothers, truly my heart’s pleasure and supplication to God on behalf of Israel is unto salvation.


2 For I testify to them that they have zeal to God, but not according to knowledge.

4 For the end of the law is Christ for righ- teousness to everyone that believes.

1 Corinthians 2:14

14 But a natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

2 Corinthians 4:6

2 Corinthians 5:21

21 For He made the One who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

2 Thessalonians 1:8

in flaming fire giving full vengeance to the ones not knowing God, and to the ones not obeying (submitting to belief of) the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, Isa. 66:15; Jer. 10:25

Jeremiah 1:5

I knew you before I formed you in the belly, even before you came out of the womb, I consecrated you. I gave you to be a prophet to the nations.

Galatians 1:15-16

But when God was pleased, He having separated me from my mother’s womb, and having called me through His grace, Isa. 49:1

16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the nations, imme- diately I did not confer with flesh and blood,

Galatians 4:9

But now, knowing God, but rather being known by God, how do you turn again to the weak and poor elements to which again you desire to be a slave anew?
