[The Glory Unveiled]
Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. ( Matthew 22:29)
Accurate knowledge of the scriptures cannot be overemphasised nor undermined because ignorance of the scriptures is dire. In the famous scripture above, we see Jesus tell the Sadducees that they were in error because they did not know the scriptures. Ignorance of the word of God is the underlying reason for failure in a believer’s faith walk. And this goes on to affect other aspects of the believer’s life. The gospel is the power of God (Romans 1 :16). And so ignorance of the gospel means ignorance of the power of God. The absence of God’s power is a carte blanche for error and captivity. Where there is ignorance, darkness is permitted to express itself because ignorance is the breeding place of destruction, corruption and chaos. When Jesus met the Sadducees in the scripture above, their ignorance of the scripture showed Jesus that they were in error and anything else could go wrong with them. Anytime the foundation of God’s word is not properly laid, there is room for error. And errors make room for ineffectiveness and demonic invasion. Study the word of God with the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
