The whole Counsel of God. Have you ever heard someone say, well, are you studying the whole Counsel of God or are you hearing the whole Counsel of God? Does that Linda Markowitz teach the whole Counsel of God?
It’s important that we know what that is. If we are believers in Jesus Christ, for us to go around and just assume that everything that we’re being fed is correct is gonna cost us down the road. We need to know what the Bible says is the Counsel of God.
For now, we see through a glass darkly, but then face-to-face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know even as I am.1 Corinthians 13:12
I wanted to start there because Paul wrote this. Paul, who was caught up into the third heaven, Paul, who wrote nearly two thirds of the New Testament, says to us, I only know part of what’s going on here. Well, which means I only know a part of the, part of the part of the part, and that’s all you know. Which in essence means that we’re not full gospel people. We’re part gospel people we don’t know it all.
I wanted you to hear that and understand that from me, because I’m not assuming that I know the whole counsel, but I do know that God has been able to compress down the key elements of the whole gospel to me. And it’s redefining how I teach. It redefines how I look at the scripture. It redefines how I walk and how I act. And it’ll do the exact same thing for you.
