Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. – 1Corinthians 2:6-14.
Note v.9 above, that eye having not seen, nor the ear hearing, nor having entered into the heart of man what things God has prepared for those that love Him… Typically, this verse is used in reference to heaven, the eternal destiny of the Saints. Well, while it may be true enough, that is not what this text is talking about. It has nothing to do with heaven in it’s application here. What is being referred to here? The answer is given in the context of verses cited above: the hidden wisdom, the deep things, or simply the “things of God”.
