James 1:5-6 (need wisdom?)

3 Characteristics of Godly Wisdom.

  1. Practical (overcome trials not having you free from them)

  2. Divine (beyond common sense, common sense does not lead you to joy in the midst of trials)

  3. Christ like (asking for wisdom from God is asking to be Christ like and not self centered or looking for wisdom for revenge )

Seeking Wisdom? 

Proverbs 2:1-5

Come!  Isaiah 26

Wisdom

Psalm 27:14
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
Commentary
Short and sweet – rely on the Lord. Do not rush to your own actions or panic when seasons of life take a turn for the worse. Seek the Lord, and wait on Him. He is good and awesome and for us. The “turns for the worse” may last a few days, or they may last many years. Whatever the hand you are dealt, know that God knows and is prepared for whatever may come. Let Him be your refuge and your rock, for He is ever faithful.

Mighty Men

1 Corinthians 1:27-31
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.  God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,  so that no one may boast before him.  It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.  Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
COMMENTARY
Nehemiah, a servant, was chosen to rebuild Jerusalem. David, the youngest of 8 brothers and shepherd, anointed King of Israel. Jesus chooses a few fisherman and a tax collector to run together as His disciples, performing miracles, signs and wonders in His name. Even Jesus Himself took a road that looked foolish to most everyone around Him, yet where would we be if He didn’t? The foolish heart ruthlessly trusts, and this is one reason why we must all be fools for Christ. (1 Corinthians 4:10) Christ is the wisdom that shames the mighty.

Time is Ticking

This is not aimed at anyone but instead to each one of us.

Sitting here saddened by the state of affairs this world is in.

Watching it snowball into a bigger mess day by day.

Everywhere I see…
Anger
Lust
Pride
Worship of things other than God
Theft
Drugs
Abuse
Lies
Mocking God
Selfishness
Hate
Backbiting
Calling evil good & good evil
People killing those they claim to love
Kill innocent and say they do good
No conscious
No shame
Unable to say I am sorry

They don’t know God so they do not cry out for Him!

How long will He wait? How long until He says enough?

Jeremiah 23:20
20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back
until he has executed and accomplished
the intents of his heart.
In the latter days you will understand it clearly. (ESV)

How far from the days of Noah are we?
How about the days of Lot?
Are we watching?
Suit up!  Ephesians 6:11
Spiritual battle is here!
Are you prepared?  Am I?

I pray for everyone who has yet to cry out for God to have mercy!
Pray for the King of Kings to show Himself to you.  To complete each of us. To take us from this evil world.  Bring us to our home. Turn from our evil ways and repent…
The Holy Spirit will lead your true heart.
Time is almost up!

Messages

The last two years the Lord continues showing me certain things.  I believe this is the message.  To me, it pretty much sums it up!  Keep looking up!  Jesus Christ IS coming back!  Keep the faith brothers and sisters!

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Revelation 9:11
They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.

Revelation 9:21
nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Revelation 3:11
I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.

Get The Feeling Lately?

Habakkuk 3

16 I heard and my heart pounded, my lips quivered at the sound; decay crept into my bones, and my legs trembled. Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come on the nation invading us.

17 Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,

18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

Do you hear the ticking?

Look. Watch. Seek. Choose. Pray for wisdom if you dare. Time is short.  I pray you reach out to the only one who can save. I believe we are about to see more than we ever imagined. Jesus come quickly!

1 John 2:20-23
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.  I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.  Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son.  No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
Commentary
Recognizing Jesus is the Son of God (the Christ, the Messiah) is everything. Each person has the freedom to believe however and whatever they want to believe about Jesus. It is clear however that what you choose to believe about Jesus Christ means life or death…in the eternal sense. I pray that as we are engaged by the Holy Spirit to introduce and share the gospel message with those we know, that we would respond and obey His leading! I pray that He would go before us and ready their hearts, and lead us in how to best live for Christ to show them the way.

Do You See What I See? Knowledge is Good

Wars and rumors of wars?
Nation rising against nation?
Kingdom against kingdom?
Famines?
Earthquakes?
Christian persecution and death?
Many turning from the faith and betray and hate each other?
False prophets deceiving many?
Love of most growing cold?
If you are not seeing this or hearing it then you better wake up!
Shocked? We should not be, Jesus also tells us this is only the beginning and not to be alarmed. These things must happen.

Seek Godly Wisdom…
God will give freely for those who ask…

I stumbled on this man Amir Tsafati. This is an hour long and packed with information that just might help you to see what is happening today in our world and how it really does fit into end times and prophecy. You will be blessed.

Exodus 31:3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills-

Deuteronomy 4:6,9
6-observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say,”Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”
9-Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.

1 Kings 10:6-9
She said to the king, “The report I heard in my own country about your achievements and your wisdom is true.
But I did not believe these things until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half was told me; in wisdom and wealth you have far exceeded the report I heard. How happy your people must be! Hoe happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom! Praise be to The Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the Lords eternal love for Israel, He has made you king to maintain justice and righteousness.”

Proverb 1:2,5,7
For gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight;
Let the wise listen and add to their learning,and let the discerning get guidance-
The fear of The Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 2:10-11
For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.

 

Wisdom? Do You Dare Ask?

Ecclesiastes 1:18
For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.

Reading this verse can cause some if not many to say “thanks but no thanks,”. I mean really, who needs anymore grief in this life? I have many friends who say they are Christians and I have no reason to doubt them, but they don’t want to know any truths. What do I mean? When I begin to tell them things that are happening in the world and how it relates to bible prophecy they get big eyes and fear washes across some of their faces. They say they just do not want to think about any of that. They say I look for too much, I think too much. I continue to search and try to learn too much. I think they do see the grief it has caused me on the inside. NOT BECAUSE I HAVE NO JOY OR BECAUSE I LIVE IN FEAR, no on the contrary. You see, when I see how things in our world really relate to the word of God it only creates a deeper faith in God. As I learn I continue to see more and more. I think it also makes me see how so many are lost. So many do not even realize to the extent of how lost they are. They only want to lose themselves in all the things that give them pleasure in this life. Let’s have FUN! Let’s go shop and buy things because they think it gives them joy. Let’s go here or there and do this or that, because they think it will bring them joy. Let’s get lost in reality TV. WHAT, DO YOU NOT HAVE ENOUGH REALITY ALREADY? They don’t want the truth, the real, the here and now. They don’t want to think about it. The real truth is that God is the only true joy. He is the only One who can fill the voids that we all try so hard to fill.

I love what this commentary says…(Matthew Henry’s Commentary)
Upon the whole, therefore, he concluded that great scholars do but make themselves great mourners; for in much wisdom is much grief, Ecclesiastes 1:18. There must be a great deal of pains taken to get it, and a great deal of care not to forget it; the more we know the more we see there is to be known, and consequently we perceive with greater clearness that our work is without end, and the more we see of our former mistakes and blunders, which occasions much grief. The more we see of men’s different sentiments and opinions the more at a loss we are, it may be, which is right. Those that increase knowledge have so much more the quick and sensible perception of the calamities of this world, and for one discovery they make that is pleasing, perhaps, they make ten that are displeasing, and so they increase sorrow. Let us not therefore be driven off from the pursuit of any useful knowledge, but put on patience to break through the sorrow of it; but let us despair of finding true happiness in this knowledge, and expect it only in the knowledge of God and the careful discharge of our duty to Him. He that increases in heavenly wisdom, and in an experimental acquaintance with the principles, powers, and pleasures of the spiritual and Devine life, increases joy, such as will shortly be consummated in everlasting joy.

My words…
I have lived seeking joy in the things of this world and can therefore compare it to the joy that comes with seeking wisdom from Almighty God. Although along with the joy also comes sorrow and sadness for the lost and the blind, just as I also was once, I will continue to pray that God will never remove the burden from my heart for all those who are lost. I would rather live all the days of my life with the sorrow and grief for the lost that also comes with the joy of knowing The Lord and seeking His wisdom and knowledge. I would rather see all the things God wants me to see than to live one more day in darkness from being blind as I once was.
Thank you My Father in Heaven, Lord of Lords, King of Kings…my Redeemer, my Savior! In the name above all names I give thanks and praise and honor and glory. In the name of Jesus I give thanks….
