Angels observe the wisdom of God through Church-age believers. Pastor Joe Sugrue.

“sophia” = Bible doctrine that is learned metabolized and applied.
Angels don’t have a human spirit.
Angels were not baptized by God the HS.
Angels don’t have the filling of the HS.
Angels don’t have the mentorship of the HS.
Angels were not given the gift of PT.
The function of these virtues is what we call experiential sanctification, which is the ability to think, speak, and act separately from the world, the OSN, and the KOD and unto God.
PRO 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
PRO 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction for wisdom, And before honor comes humility.
JOB 28:28 “And to man He said, â€˜Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.â€™”
JOH 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
“manifold” = polupoikilos (hapax legomina), which means many colored referring to a collection of flowers or a robe or a painting in other ancient Greek texts.
Paul uses sophia 15 times in 1Co 1-3.
It is due to a lack of wisdom that Church-age believers become defeated losers in the angelic conflict.
Church-age losers are the most pathetic of all of God’s creation because they have been given the most wisdom and power.
On the stage of the AC these loser believers fail to glorify God in this play and are shown to have a tragic flaw; foolish ignorance.
God would never give up on any of His children who are ignorant, because that is not the will of God.
1TI 2:4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
“knowledge” = epignosis, which is also equivalent to chokhmah, the metabolized mystery doctrine of the church.
“spectacle” is theatron, which means theatre, play or spectacle.
The word “supply” you might remember as the aorist active imperative of epichoregeo. EPICHOREGEO means support, supply, provision. It is taken from the Attic Greek verb EPICHOREGEO, which was used for a person who paid the expenses for a chorus in a Greek drama.
God the HS is entreating every believer who lacks His wisdom to be motivated by how important their life is. If it wasn’t important then why would angels be rubber-necking to see it?
perfect active indicative of oida, oidate = to know or to see.
“the prize” to brabeion = the victorâ€™s prize which only one could receive.
