The Spirit of Understanding is continuation of the previous topic Spirit of Wisdom. 2. Spirit of Understanding (mental process of a person who comprehends; comprehension; personal interpretation. intelligence, mental power to perceive, reasoning, feeling) Hosea 4:14
…people that do not understand shall fall. Commentary: Many Christians cannot continue long in goodness
but will quickly fall into the snares of the devil due to sheer ignorance. Lack of understanding
about the Spirit of God
is the main cause for the great darkness
that cover us
and our world.
And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. (2 Timothy 2:26) (Here recover means regain his senses.)
Parents love their children and willingly undergo more trouble and affliction for the improvement, progress and integral growth of their children. Few children who realize and understand
the sufferings of their parents, reciprocate by putting all their effort to make their parent’s dream a reality. Some children, without understanding
their parent’s determined attempt, will take a stand against their parents and become inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents.
To know God, you need to understand God's purpose in Creation. When it went wrong because of eve’s sin, Jesus
willingly died on the cross, in a very painful way
to rectify the wrong and redeem us from the slavery of Sin and Satan. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. If you understand God and love Jesus, you will obey His commandments.
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding
what the will of the Lord is. (Ephesians 5:17)
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding,
that I may learn thy commandments.
Give me understanding,
and I shall keep thy law
; yea, I shall observe
it with my whole heart. Let my cry come near before thee,
O Lord: give me understanding
according to thy word. (Psalm 119:73, 34, 169) If there be in the land famine,
if there be pestilence, blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpiller; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication so ever be made by any man,
or by all thy people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart,
and spread forth his hands
toward this house:
Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest;
(for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men ;) That they may fear thee all the days that they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers. (1 Kings 8:37, 38, 39, 40)
Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives,
and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;
And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name:
Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause,
And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them: (1 Kings 8:47, 48, 49, 50)
I am thy servant;
give me understanding,
that I may know thy testimonies.
The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding,
and I shall live. (Psalm 119:125, 144) Commentary:
There are ample evidences
in the old and new testament which prove God’s existence.
When Pharaoh enslaved Israelites, the Pharaoh and his whole household were struck by plagues as punishment from God until he let them free.
“On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord." (Exodus 12:12)
in the Old Testament
For example, Birth of Christ through Mother Mary,
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
” (Isaiah 7:14) Christ
will be betrayed for money
by his familiar friend,
“Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who ate bread with me, has lifted up his heel against me.
” (Psalms 41:9)
And I said unto them, if ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter:
a goodly price that I was priced at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord. (Zakariya 11:12, 13)
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. (Isaiah 53:6, 7, 8) Since all the prophecies are fulfilled, trust God that He exist,
understand that He will redeem us and learn to obey His words (commandments

Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff—they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
