PETER DECLARED THE OMNISCIENCE OF GOD WHEN HE SAID: “God knows the hearts of men” (Acts 15:8). David said the same thing in Psalm 139 “Lord, you have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thoughts afar off.” This doesn’t mean God is far away in heaven and I’m away down here on earth; and from that distance, God knows my thoughts. The idea is GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING; “You know my thoughts in their origins.” It’s interesting how God knows my thoughts from their origin. He knows my thoughts before I even think them. A little later in this same discussion James would say; “Known to God from eternity are all His works”(Acts 15:18). It is amazing how God’s omniscience is woven right in here with their common discussion. God knows everything. GOD KNOWS HEARTS!
