Hello and thank you for being here; also, for all of you around the World, I hope today’s message will help you with your journey in your growth in the Faith.
Wisdom is something every one wants, it’s also what many think they already have, yet do not. Wisdom can bring wealth, fame, fortune, but the most important thing is wisdom can help you in every decision you make in this life.
Wisdom is not what most people think it is, some think only intellectuals’ possess it, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Wisdom is something that is entirely free and it can be had by all who seek for it. Some people have a high IQ from an early age, and others possess talent, natural talent they have others don’t seem to be blessed with. Talent is not always wisdom, it can be if used in a correct way. Example: (a poor one)There have been many musicians that have picked up a guitar or other musical instruments and played without any lessons and became famous, The rest of people that play musical instruments can learn by instruction. Then there are some people who cannot learn even when they are taught, because they don’t have a natural inclination for it.
Wisdom is priceless, you cannot buy it, yet it is free, and most people that have it are unwilling to share it with you, they want you to find it for yourself. Wisdom can rule Countries, Kingdoms, be used for inventions, science, it can even be used to run this entire World.
Wars are won with it, peace is made with it.
The truest definition of wisdom can be found only in the Bible, what is it?
Proverbs 1:2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; 3.To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; 4. To give subtilty to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion.
6. To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
It is the next verse.
Proverbs 1:7. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Notice the word understanding shows up also, what is it?
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Proverbs 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things that thou canst desire are not to be compared to her. 16. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
19. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
Wisdom is listed 234 times in a concordance and Understanding is mentioned 160 times, believe me they are important.
If you take all this and put it in one sentence it is this.; Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Lack of wisdom is why this World is turning upside down right now, there is no fear of the Lord before many peoples eyes, and they err greatly by this. Men will not depart from evil, they are full of lust and greed and it is producing wars and dissention all over the Globe.
We need to take a look at our ourselves individually and get ourselves right first, then we can see to help others. Without wisdom and understanding people are starving, dying, and fighting, stealing, killing, etc.
We are in short supply of Godly men all over this World and we need them badly, because the fate of many lives are laying in the balances.
My personal wish for everyone on this earth is that they would get saved, it seems we are running out of time fast and not many seem to be working the way they used to, in leading others to the Lord.
There are many of you in other countries that read this and are searching for truth and the only truth on this earth is That Jesus Christ died for your sins and was buried and rose again the third day. If you read 1 Corinthians 15:3 you can see this verse in its entirety, I can write it but I would like for you to look it up for yourself. The Lord will save you right now, this moment if you will just trust Him. Once you take your last breath there is no more hope for you and you don’t know when that is going to be, so please stop putting it off and get saved today. Trust Him and you will be sealed with the Holy Spirit right now and be put in the Body of Christ, please do it now before its too late. I pray for all of you every day, yes, I know I don’t even know you, but my Saviour does. The Lord also knows that I pray for you even though I don’t know you. I don’t have to know you, all you need to know is there is one person out here that cares for your salvation and you. Once you have made that decision, if you can find a Bible, read the book of Romans through Philemon, that will help you spiritually grow. The emphasis is also on the book of Ephesians and I think you can see that that is where we were included in the body of Christ.
There are a lot of teachers out there who will disagree but I can tell you this much, I don’t want you to bet your soul on a large Church or the word of some Pastor, your mother, dad or anyone else unless he is teaching the Word of God rightly divided out of a King James Bible. As we are told to do in 2 Timothy 2:15.
Thank you for your time, you need salvation first, then wisdom, then understanding. If you will trust Christ as your saviour, He will give you the understanding you need to read His Word. I promise.
As always, I love you all very much and I pray for you everyday.
