Knowledge:  What is the Knowledge,
for the lack of which,
We Are Destroyed ?
Seeking  Bible  upd:11/10/09
 
If we are being destroyed because of something we are lacking, then we have compelling reasons to learn everything we can about the knowledge God is saying we need. Since the word "knowledge" appears in 169 verses in the Bible, it is obvious that God is trying to help us understand all that the word "knowledge" implies, and what we need to know about "knowledge."  
Comparing our worldly knowledge with God's spiritual knowledge

To organize our understanding of knowledge, we can compare our worldly knowledge with God's spiritual knowledge in the table below.  Since our worldly knowledge is but a subset of God's overall spiritual knowledge, we can think of our worldly knowledge as merely having a spiritual interface with God's overall spiritual knowledge.

 
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
God, and God's Power
  God, and God's Power  (the knowledge we are seeking is spiritual knowledge about God / Lord, and about using God's power in our lives  ("God" is mentioned in 32 of the 169 verses containing the word "knowledge", and "Lord" is mentioned in 26))  2Pe 1:3
God's Power is delegated to, and expressed by:
Satan / Devil / serpent / dragon ( the 4 names of )
(the author of all the lies we choose to believe)
Jesus Christ
(our Lord and Saviour, and High Priest)
  the Holy Spirit
Demons Angels
  Born Again Christians, utilizing God's Power (with signs following)  Mar 16:20  Heb 2:1-4
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
Everyone above is also engaged in:  Spiritual Warfare
Eph 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities
[authorities], against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness [forces of evil] in high places [heavenly realms].
1Pe 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
[the 4 "names" of Satan are:  Satan, devil, serpent, dragon  ( see Rev 12:9 )]

Rev 12:11  And they [Christians] overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb [Jesus Christ], and by the word of their testimony; and they [Christians] loved not their [own] lives unto the death [Christians willing to die for Christ, rather than live for Satan (or rather than live in fear of Satan)].

Eph 6:10-19  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles [schemes] of the devil.  [ ... put on the ... ]  
    loins girt about with truth,
    breastplate of righteousness,
    feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace,
    shield of faith,
    helmet of salvation,
    sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
    Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, ...
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
Our Soul / Mind / Heart chooses between:
a physical / body perspective
(way of looking at things)
a spiritual / sprit perspective
(way of looking at things)
If David had limited his knowledge and perspective to the physical domain, David would have been destroyed that day, instead of Goliath.  1Sa 17:42-44 David, with the knowledge and perspective of God's spiritual domain, [David] prevailed over Goliath.  1Sa 17:45-47
Your "Luck"
(limited by probabilities & statistics)
Your unlimited Blessings from God
(NOT limited by probabilities & statistics)
From our worldly perspective, we often use the phase that:
something is "physically impossible."
Mat 17:20  ... If ye have faith ... nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Luk 1:37  For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Phi 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

By our choices, we will spend eternity in:
Hell
( for more about choosing where to spend eternity )
Heaven
( for more about how to spend eternity in Heaven )
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
Describing Our Knowledge and Domains
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain )
is defined, constrained, and limited by:
Mathematics & Science.
God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
is NOT limited by Mathematics & Science.

God, our creator, is not limited by the constraints He imposed on His creation:  the Worldly / Physical Domain.

God as our creator, can do anything in / with / to / for
us and/or His creation that He desires.  That is why:
Mat 17:20  ... If ye have faith ... nothing shall be impossible unto you.

3-dimensional Space
Time (as measured by clocks)
Things perceived by our 5 senses
(see, hear, smell, taste, touch)
Love, emothions, seeking, faith, belief, appear to be spiritual qualities imparted to us, and the rest of God's creation, by God.
The world (we live in, until we die) The spiritual domain that we can also live in
(both during our life here on Earth, and after we die)
The physical universe The Bible describes spiritual domains like:
2Co 12:2  ... caught up to the third heaven.
2Co 12:4  ... caught up into paradise ...
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
Our Body and Our Spirit
Our Body Our Spirit
Nutrition & Natural cures God has provided for our physical bodies. God has provided us an almost endless amount of spiritual food that we can asimilate from His word:  The Bible.
An immune system God has designed into our bodies to keep us well (keep us from getting sick) God's promises in the Bible and provisions whereby we don't get sick in the first place.
By His [Jesus Christ's] stripes we are healed.
Self-healing characteristics God has designed into our bodies (such as skin cuts that heal)  
Modern Medical Science, Surgery, Drugs, Chemo, Radiation
and all their side effects, constraints, and limitations
God's unlimited Divine Healing cures
(God, our creator, can and wants to recreate whatever is needed to heal us)
We can choose to believe what the Doctor says
(his report, merely reflects the limitations and constraints of the Worldly / Physical Domain described by Mathematics & Science).
We can choose to believe what God says in the Bible
(God, our creator, is not limited by the constraints He imposed on His creation:  the Worldly / Physical Domain).
Our Worldly Knowledge  ( the Physical Domain ) God's Spiritual Knowledge  ( the Spiritual Domain )
