The Key of Knowledge.

Lu 11:52 "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the 
key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that
were entering in ye hindered."

If there is no knowledge and fear of God in a man's soul, he has
no access to anything but an appearance, the painted face of 
knowledge: Clouds and wind, no rain. Pr 25:14 "Whoso boasteth 
himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain." 

He can only look on the outward appearance, and judges 
according to appearances, and cannot judge righteous judgment.  
Joh 7:24 "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge 
righteous judgment."

His pretensions of knowledge will only impress those who are 
wandering in the same darkness as he is; those who will be hindered 
by him. Pr 1:7 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: 
but fools despise wisdom and instruction."  He drags other down
with him.

Those who truly seek to know, seek the fear of God. Proverbs
2:3-6 "Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice
for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for
her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the
LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth
wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding."

Men will not find the fear of the Lord as long as they are not
humbled, for God resists the proud: Pr 15:33 "The fear of the
LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility."

Hence, those that seek wisdom and understanding must seek
them in the One whom God has appointed to teach man wisdom:
Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Isa 11:2 "And the spirit of the LORD
shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the
spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the
fear of the LORD;"

1Cor. 1: 27-31 "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the
world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak
things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised,
hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to
nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us
wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in
the Lord."

Joh 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten 
Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."
