You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Colossians 2:3



3 In [en] whom [hos] are [eisi] hid [apokruphos] all [pas] the treasures [thesauros] of wisdom [sophia] and [kai] knowledge. [gnosis] KJV-Interlinear



3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. NASB



Christ was previously mentioned in the last verse, so the phrase, in whom, is in reference to Christ specifically, since the rest of this verse refers to the wisdom and knowledge of God, and to God in general, in that Christ is a member of the Godhead, of whom all members possess these attributes.


Hidden is the reference to Christ, in whom these treasures, are maintained.


Christ does not hide doctrine or the blessings that come from doctrine. But Christ does possess them, and they are not accessible, nor discoverable by anyone who does not approach God, Christ, or doctrine, in the proper way.


To approach God apart from Christ, is impossible.


To approach doctrine apart from fellowship, is impossible.


To approach spiritual maturity apart from the spiritual method authorized by God, is impossible.


They are in effect, hidden or inaccessible, when the wrong approaches are used.


Treasures, is a reference to a deposit of wealth.The deposit is similar to one of money deposited into a bank. Only in this case, the deposit is of doctrine and its application, which results in the construction of a spiritual structure within your soul.]


A deposit into a bank comes with interest earnings.An investment into a profitable venture, returns profits, and wages, and dividends.


And as far as doctrine is concerned, these things are returned to the one who possesses the doctrine, but the person also becomes a partner and owner of the wealth deposited.


Wisdom is the full range of understanding and the ability to apply it to life. Knowledge, gnosis, is the full range of the details of information which are the building blocks, or components, that lead one to understanding and then to wisdom.


So in effect, Christ is the one and only source, and path to success in life. Anything else, means absolute failure.


You either commit yourself to Christ (the study of doctrine, the application of doctrine, the growth in doctrine, obedience to His mandates, responsibility in life, and termination of ones whining sin nature anecdotes), and through that approach, to success.


Or, you can continue on your merry way, as you are, and to certain failure in life, regardless of what this world does to you or for you.
