Knowledge, Acknowledge

By Jack Eberle

Although our readers are among the most knowledgeable of Bible students, it is necessary to state a few premises.

  1. God's Word is totally inspired. (The technical term is "plenary inspiration".)
  2. God's Words are placed in His Holy Word purposefully and without error.

Therefore, we cannot accept some men's presumptions concerning what I call "casual" translation. A case in point is the "translations" of GNOSIS (knowledge) and EPIGNOSIS (acknowledgement).

We are the "fullness of Him (the Husband) that filleth all in all (Eph.1:23). Futhermore, our calling and destiny is not in the New Jerusalem. Our manifestation is in Glory where Christ sits on the right hand of God (Col. 3:1-4)! Our life is hid with Christ in God there who or what can affect this reality?). Where is the right hand of God? (Answer=it is in the heaven far above all heavens where we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing that the Father has to give!! Eph.1:1-9; it is "far above all principality, & power and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come"Eph.1:21. (Phenomenol!)
