The Wisdom of Fools
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Prov. 1:7) There is, in the eyes of many, a very fine line between the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of God, but not in the eyes of those who have been blessed with wisdom that can only come from the Almighty. To them it is a great gulf, easily discerned, seen and understood with a clear distinction between the two. If you will understand, you will be able to tell that most, if not all, of the wisdom of the world attempts to desire knowledge, to expound most generally upon the concepts and constructs of what is termed the human psyche, how mankind thinks and why. They offer reasons, but little wisdom towards growth, save for that of the world. “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in
God wants you to be happy, He wants you to be healthy, content and whole, He wants you to be financially sound, at peace and fulfilled. This is the message of many churches today in what is called the western, or civilized world and anything that deviates from that is seen as a falling away from the Lord, or one who has incurred His displeasure for various reasons. All the world has to offer, and heaven included. “They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;” (Heb. 11:37) These examples in Hebrews eleven were that to many, just examples, not what will happen to them, for the Lord loves them and wants them to live long and happy productive lives. They see Lazarus sitting at the rich man’s gate full of sores but pray
“But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;” (1st Peter 3:14) This is not a subject to be taken lightly, I believe our opening verse goes along with Hebrews 12:8, “But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.” If we were speaking of percentages, I would conjecture that those who have been imprisoned, tortured and killed for the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is low compared to what most suffer for the Lord, what we are all called to be, rejected by the world. How many people do you know that say they are Christians, not just those who say they believe in God, but those who profess a faith in the Lord Jesus Christ whom the world does not hate, in fact they get along quite
“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Col. 3:4) “For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6:17) “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1) There have been and are even now much wiser men of God than I that have spoken on the Rapture, who have been shown the truths of the Scriptures of this blessed and feared moment, that moment when in a twinkling of an eye we will be changed, and then in the next instant the most horrific time on this planet that will ever be will begin. Far too many who understand the truth of these words have begun to fixate upon that moment, both to the loss
