Working the Works of GodHandbook 4: Article 6 - Part 1 - Time and the Works of God: An Introduction

"They said therefore to Him, 'What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?' Jesus answered, 'This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.'"

John 6:28, 29

"Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness."

Galatians 3:6

"My soul, it is God, even your God, God that cannot lie, who speaks to you. The word of His which you are now considering is as true as His own existence. He is God unchangeable. He has not altered the thing which has gone out of His mouth; nor called back one single consolatory sentence. Nor does He lack any power; it is God that has made the heaven and earth who has spoken thus. Nor can He fail in wisdom as to the time when He will bestow His judgments or His blessings; for He knows when to give and when to withhold. Therefore, seeing that it is the word of God so true, so immutable, so powerful, so wise, I will and must believe."

Charles Spurgeon

Wisdom and the Workman:

Working The "Greater Works":

"Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him... He gives wisdom to the wise man, and knowledge to knowers. It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things..."

Daniel 2:20, 21

Wisdom Speaking:

"For if you cry for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;
If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will discern the fear of the Lord,
And discover the knowledge of God."

Proverbs 2:3-5

"...every man wise of heart in whom the Lord has put wisdom and understanding to know how to perform the work in or connected with the service of the sanctuary, shall perform in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded."

Exodus 36:1

"In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He proposed in Him, with the view to an administration of the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things upon the heavens and things upon the earth..."

Ephesians 1:9, 10

Ponder the "Greater Works":

"...the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of His prophets, that His Anointed One should suffer, He has fulfilled. Repent therefore, and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient times."

Acts 3:18-21
