Gain Wisdom From God!

 

Let’s look at what wisdom is as defined by Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary.

WISDOM:

  1. The right use or exercise of knowledge; the choice of laudable ends, and of the best means to accomplish them. This is wisdom in act, effect, or practice. If wisdom is to be considered as a faculty of the mind, it is the faculty of discerning or judging what is most just, proper, and useful, and if it is to be considered as an acquirement, it is the knowledge and use of what is best, most just, most proper, most conducive to prosperity or happiness. Wisdom in the first sense, or practical wisdom, is nearly synonymous with discretion. It differs somewhat from prudence, in this respect; prudence is the exercise of sound judgment in avoiding evils; wisdom is the exercise of sound judgment either in avoiding evils or attempting good. Prudence then is a species, of which wisdom is the genus [(in philosophical and general use) a class of things that have common characteristics and that can be divided into subordinate kinds.] Wisdom gained by experience is of inestimable value.
    Example: It is hoped that our rulers will act with dignity and wisdom; that they will yield everything to reason, and refuse everything to force.
  2. In Scripture, human learning; erudition; knowledge of arts and sciences.
    Example: Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians. Acts 7.
  3. The quickness of intellect; readiness of apprehension; dexterity in execution; as the wisdom of Bezaleel and Aholiab. Exodus 31.
  4. Natural instinct and keen discernment. Job 39.
  5. In Scripture theology, wisdom is true religion; godliness; piety; the knowledge and fear of God, and sincere and uniform obedience to his commands. This is the wisdom that is from above. Psalm 90. Job 28.
  6. Profitable words or doctrine. Psalm 37.
    The wisdom of this world, mere human education; or the carnal policy of men, their craft and artifices in promoting their temporal interests; called also fleshly wisdom. 1 Corinthians 2. 2 Corinthians 1.
    The wisdom of words, artificial or affected eloquence; or learning displayed in teaching. 1 Corinthians 1 and 2.

We’ll focus on number 5 in this blog entry.

Wisdom is true religion; godliness; piety; the knowledge and fear of God, and sincere and uniform obedience to his commands.

God is telling us to be wise in His word, commands, obedience, reverence to Him, and how we live out our Christly lives for Him.

What are we doing with Jesus Christ the Messiah in the world? We need to be about the Father’s business sharing the gospel, planting seeds, and winning souls for YAH. What does that look like in your life? Let’s interact. Leave a comment and let’s share and chat.

For me, it’s this blog, it’s all the things I share on social media, and the in-person interactions I participate in. Nowadays, in-person interaction isn’t what it used to be, because of the chaos surrounding the virus and the fear created by it.

Many people fear getting ill and dying. I do not. Why? Because, even in death, I know where my spirit is going in the afterlife. It’s going to heaven to be with Jesus. There’s no fear in that. Why are you afraid? What do you fear and why?

Dear Abba YAH, I lift up all these lives to You. I pray that they acquire great wisdom of and from YOU. I pray that we’ll be about YOUR business spreading the gospel of Jesus, The Good News. Take away the fear of humans, YAH. Help us reach out to in-person interaction and be Your family. I love, honor, glorify, and adore YOU, YAH. In Jesus’ name, amen.

How can I pray for you? Contact me and I’ll get some prayer warriors on it, right away. Including me.

The Beatitudes and Superman

The Beatitudes Jesus teaches from the mountainside. We can live blessed lives. We simply need to trust, love, obey, praise & worship, adore, and fear (revere) God with our whole being. That’s not to say we won’t have trials and burdens. God uses our trials to build us up, strengthen us, and teach us, and to help us growth in our faith in Him. What’s stopping you? Stop believing the lies of the devil. Stop the devil of permission to hold you in his control. Then, surrender to Jesus, the Holy Spirit, & God. Why? To gain freedom in Christ through salvation. Be liberated from the devil, now. Accept Jesus as your savior. Satan has no power over God, the Holy Spirit, Jesus. In fact, by the sheer mention of “Jesus”, the devil crumbles and loses all power. Imagine, if you will, for a minute, Superman & Kryptonite. What happens to Superman when he is near Kryptonite? In fiction, it’s temporary. As soon as Superman is out of range of it he regains his strength. Well, as long as you continue to surrender and obey God, your weakness is turned to strength through God. Praise the living Triune God, Yahweh! What an awesome blessing!

The Lesson

Luke 16:9-13 <=== Click to open and read more.

Servitude

The key thought in the book of Joshua is that as long as Israel served God, they prospered.

There it is again. Obedience to God. Serving Him is obeying Him.

When we remove our agenda and surrender to Him lovingly, we’ll be prosperous. There’s more to obedience than meets the eye. As the title says, servitude, it’s about your attitude while serving Him.

Truly serving Him is about removing our wants and replacing them with His wants.

It’s all in His word. Go read it and find out for yourselves.

(Note: This is not a message in favor of the prosperity gospel.)

What’s your attitude about serving God? Comment, let’s chat!

Why Obey?

Being responsible? It’s hard, in today’s society. It was in Biblical days, too. That’s the way people put it who choose not to be responsible and blame everyone and everything else about their life.

We all make choices. Even not choosing is a choice. Those choices all have ramifications on our lives.

The Word talks about it clearly.

This book (The Word; The Holy Bible), is God breathed and inerrant, teaches an important lesson: we bring hardship to ourselves and others when we disobey God.

May we see the moral integrity of God that Moses proclaimed and respond by being responsible.

How does this look in your life? Comment and let’s chat.

Her Beauty Comes From Him!

Song of Songs 7_6 image

The similarities here are uniquely different than what they were previously, and in the beginning, relate to magnificent and elegant raiment. Such esteem is all His saints; and are clothed with Christ, they are marked by their elegance and radiantly beautiful garments.

They make the teachings of Yahweh their Saviour more pleasing in everything. Steadfast believers pay tribute to Christ, exhort the gospel, and persuade and revive sinners.

Read today’s full scripture text here.

The church compares to the grand and extending palm; during her love for Christ, and the obedience came about accordingly, are a cherished fruit of the true Vine. The King is maintained in the chambers.

Christ takes pleasure in the gatherings and commands of His people; and cherishes the fruit of His grace in them.

When applied to the church and to each faithful Christian, all this symbolizes that grace of holiness, in which they’ll be given to their divine Bridegroom.

The church’s beauty is from Christ! When we are obedient and allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through us, for His purpose, our beauty shines through. It greatly pleases Him. In doing so, we’re blessed.

Comment how you’re blessed in your obedience to Christ.

Me: Well, we know that nobody is perfect in this fleshly vessel. We all stumble, even I. However, that being said; I do my very best to be obedient to Christ’s call on my life. I stumble along the way, but, He catches me and helps me keep going. Your turn!

I Called On You!

 

Isaiah_50_2-3_10-11
Jesus at the door image borrowed.

 

Yahweh was speaking to Isaiah. He may not always audibly speak to us today. But, through the Holy Spirit and His living Word, He does.

How often do you get a phone call or someone at your door and you ignore it because you don’t have time, or just don’t want to deal with it? I’ve done it! I’ll admit it! You wouldn’t know it by my social interactions, but, I’m an introvert. Actually, technically, I’m an extroverted introvert. I socialize. I then need my solitude to recharge. Click the link and read up. Maybe you’re like this too?

However, there are some who blatantly ignore out of disobedience to Yahweh’s calling.

Obedience is tough. It’s easy in today’s society to ignore the call of Yahweh and keep going with our day to day life without His guidance & wisdom. Are you distracted with life? Are you weary? In the last line of the scripture, it tells us that when we’re disobedient we will live in pain. That’s what He offers us in our disobedience. I don’t know about you, but, I’m not a fan of living in pain. You interpret this pain whatever way you wish. But, I believe it means living in torment and trials that cause pain of all kinds. Now, that’s not to say we’ll be with any pain whatsoever, otherwise. This is talking about needless pain. Some pain is needed to grow in our faith in Yahweh.

Answer Yahweh’s call. Be obedient to His call. You won’t regret it! That is my challenge to you.

Your Will, Not Mine, Yahweh!

Luke-22_42As being fully human subjects Jesus to the same as we experience, here He was praying and pleading for His life. He still prayed, “But do what You want, not what I want”.

It is not always easy to give into Yahweh. We would much rather give the orders and ask Yahweh to back up our plans. However, real praying is learning what He desires for our lives and then doing it. When we can sincerely come to Him and say, “Your will be done,” we are then able to face anything that comes.

How about you? Do you struggle with obedience to Yahweh and doing what His word tells you? I know I do. You’d be lying if you said no. As humans, we want to be the boss. It’s in our nature.

That’s not to say that were unable to be obedient. It’s simply a human struggle to follow other’s orders. It can and should be done, however. As stated before, when we do follow His orders we’ll be able to face whatever comes.

Comment a time you obeyed Yahweh and were blessed.

Healing Through Obedience

There’s two types of healing, 
immediate and progressive. Immediate is rare. Why? Yahweh requires obedience.

Progressive healing happens frequently. Why?

In the midst of whatever physical affliction we may face, we must learn by kneeling in prayer, standing in faith, and walking in obedience. 

When we’re in alignment and obedient to Yahweh prayers get answered, and people heal.

Whatever you’re facing; there’s no resolution or healing. Ask yourself, “why?”.

I’ve had my own experiences of non healing and non resolution. Once I got in alignment and became obedient, healing and resolution came.

What’s your experience? Comment your thoughts and be blessed and bless others.
