(Cornelius Tyree, “The Glorious Sufficiency of Christ!” 1879)
“Our Lord is great, vast in power; His understanding is infinite.” Psalm 147:5
“He knows all things.” 1 John 3:20
Christ’s knowledge is as limitless as His power,
His understanding is boundless;
He knows the end from the beginning;
He knows all things in their origin, connections, tendencies, and consequences.
Everything that has occurred in the universe,
everything that is now taking place,
and everything that will take place–
is mapped out before His omniscient eye in perfect transparency.
At a single glance, He looks through immensity and eternity, and takes in at one view all beings and events.
He knows what will take place and what His people will need a thousand years to come.
Nothing can surprise, or baffle, or disappoint Him.
He knows how to make the most malicious wiles of Hell redound to His people’s greatest good and His greatest glory.
“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.” Isaiah 40:28
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13
