De Moor IV:36: God's Knowledge of the Hidden Things of the Heart



6. The hidden Thoughts of the Heart, 1 Kings 8:39; Acts 1:24; John 2:25; Revelation 2:23, in which passages Universal Knowledge, Certain and Immediate, of the Hidden Things of the Heart with sufficient clarity is also claimed for God, and God alone. To whom the same is not able to be denied, unless His Knowledge is thought to be altogether imperfect, and is deprived of an eminent part, not unworthy of Him. God is not able to be ignorant of things that, having been foreseen with the rest, are under His Government, Proverbs 21:1; and concerning which He would not otherwise be able hereafter to judge justly, which nevertheless Paul proclaims He is going to do, Romans 2:16. CLEMENT OF ROME, in his First Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter XXI, relates of God: Ἴδωμεν πῶς ἐγγύς ἐστιν, καὶ ὅτι οὐδὲν λέληθεν αὐτὸν τῶν ἐννοιῶν ἡμῶν, οὐδὲ τῶν διαλογισμῶν ὧν ποιούμεθα. —Ἐρευνητὴς γάρ ἐστιν ἐννοιῶν καὶ ἐνθυμήσεων, Let us consider how near He is, and that none of the thoughts, nor the reasonings in which we engage, are hid from Him:… For He is a searcher of thoughts and desires. And in his Second Epistle, chapter IX, Προγνώστης γάρ ἐστιν τῶν πάντων, καὶ εἰδὼς ἡμῶν τὰ ἐν καρδίᾳ, for He discerneth all things beforehand and knoweth what is in our heart.

Dear Elisabeth,


This blog has been developed for this very thing.


Each day we try to dig more deeply into the word with Matthew Poole, and more deeply into theology (our thoughts about God) with De Moor.


Currently, we are working out way through the narrative of Judges 18 and 19 with Poole, which begins here: https://www.fromreformationtoreformation.com/blog/categories/poole-judges. [However, the Samson narrative (beginning at https://www.fromreformationtoreformation.com/blog/judges-13-outline) was peculiarly interesting.]


And we have been considering God's Omniscience with De Moor, which begins here: https://www.fromreformationtoreformation.com/blog/de-moor-iv-34-divine-knowledge.


May the God of Light and Knowledge make your ongoing studies fruitful.
