Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge (epignosis)of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
It is a bit interesting to see how the term (epignosis) is used in certain scriptures, and for many years I have wondered at the term and how it was different from the more common term of (gnosis)? But as of late the Lord has been teaching me more and more of the truth of His Cross, and how all the justice and wrath of God, demanded in the Law, was satisfied, as well as Gods love for all men was also shown in that He delivered up His Son for us all. "MERCY AND TRUTH HAVE MET TOGETHER- RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PEACE HAVE KISSED" for it is at the Cross that we "understand" Gods judgment and Gods mercy toward all men.
The Lords heart is full of mercy, and He works justice with His Hands.
This understanding of mercy and justice is not a thing taught by man, but taught by the Holy Spirit. The "accuser"-satan uses our lack of understanding in this mystery against us? For when we attempt to work justice, he accuses us of lack of mercy. When we attempt to show mercy, he accuses us of failing to work justice. No there is a place in the Spirit, where we can be confident in that our hearts are always seeking mercy, and we work justice by that mercy.
