The Manifold Wisdom of God
You can't separate Gods Wisdom from Gods Power. Nor can you separate Gods Power from Gods Wisdom. A man that would send his soldiers into battle, with no weapons or authority, would be considered a fool. Also a man that would give great weapons and authority, to soldiers with no training or command structure above them, would also be considered a fool.
God is no fool.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NLT)
Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
