Preparing the Way of the Lord

Proverbs 8 – 9

Proverbs 8

Godly wisdom comes from learning and the practical application of the Word of God, therefore it is a rejection of wisdom to compromise or turn aside from any part of God’s Word. 

All those who teach to compromise with, or teach contrary to the Word of God are Anti-Christs because Jesus taught all people to live by every Word of God (Mat 4:4).

Wisdom which is the truth of God applied in our lives, cries out:  “Come to me, for I am the gift of God to you! Lay hold on me for I am eternal life to all those who love me!”

Proverbs 8:1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?  8:2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.  8:3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

The application of the wisdom of our heavenly Father in our every thought and deed; is the way to peace, fulfillment, success and eternal life.

8:4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.  8:5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.  8:6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

Compromising with the truth of God’s Word and the commandments and teachings of Jesus Christ who taught all people to live by every Word of God is an abomination before God. 

8:7 For my [our heavenly Father’s Word of wisdom] mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [commandment breaking] is an abomination to my [God the Father and Christ] lips.

Every Word of God is truth and perfect godliness, devoid of any wickedness and sin.

God’s commandments are perfect,

Psalm 119:7   The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.

119:8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes

119:9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

Proverbs 8:8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

God’s wisdom is open to all those who keep his commandments.

8:9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

Receive instruction from God’s Word and zealously seek out understanding; enthusiastically OBEY every Word of Holy Scripture; for that is the wisdom that leads to eternal life.  Abhor all sin and compromise with the Word of Almighty God!

8:10 Receive my [the heavenly Father’s] instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.  8:11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

The wise are obedient to God and prudent in their actions;  they think through and prove all things by the Holy Scriptures, before they take decisions. 

8:12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions [the secret things of God].

The godly hate evil rebellion and compromise with the Word of God; they hate pride and any teaching contrary to or different from the Word of God.

8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

By learning the ways of God and applying the sound doctrine of God the Father in our lives; we become fit to be a part of the collective New Covenant bride and to rule in the soon coming Kingdom of God!

8:14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.  8:15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.  8:16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.

All who delight to live by every Word of God will eternal life and much honor, exalting the humble man to kingship and the priesthood of Melchizedek forever.

8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.  8:18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

The fruit [results] of seeking out the wisdom of God are the most valuable thing we can seek out.

8:19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.

A diligent SEEKING OUT, LEARNING and KEEPING of every Word of God; makes us like our Father in Heaven, and fit to be chosen as part of the New Covenant bride of Christ!  Those zealous for God the Father and Christ and all their ways shall inherit a glorious eternity; filled with all good things.

8:20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:  8:21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Wisdom is of and from God; wisdom comes through the faithful enthusiastic LEARNING and KEEPING of every Word of God; Wisdom is the internalizing of the very nature of  God the Father and Jesus Christ. 

Those who teach compromise with any part of God’s Word or tolerate sin are foolish, lacking the wisdom of God and they will not see the reward of the wise.

Through wisdom God the Father and Jesus Christ have made all things! 

I speak here of those spiritually called out to God who have access to a potential understanding of the wisdom of God: Oh what foolishness it is to despise the wisdom of God by compromising with his Word.  God is great and his works show forth his wisdom! 

Who are you, oh man, to exalt your own words above the Word of God?  Who are you to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong by binding and loosing [changing] the Word of God? 

To exchange the wisdom of God for the foolishness of man, to exchange the salvation of God for the destruction of idolatry, is most foolish indeed!

8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.  8:23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.  8:24 When there were no depths [yet no sea], I [wisdom] was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.  8:25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:  8:26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

The wisdom of the Word of God is from forever and is the foundation of life eternal and is truth. 

8:27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:  8:28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:  8:29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:   8:30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;   8:31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

LIVE by every Word of God; not turning to the left or to the right: Diligently SEEK OUT, LEARN and LIVE the way to eternal life and success. 

Blessed are they that obey God the Father and Jesus Christ; and cursed are all those who depart from the Word of God.  Just like those who sought to return to Egypt; so are they who compromise with any part of the Word of God.

8:32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways.

Hear the Word of God and grow in God’s instructions; sincerely repent of standing on the false traditions of men, no matter how impressive.

Those who claim that they are growing spiritually while departing from God the Father, are deceiving themselves into perdition.

8:33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

Blessed is the one that seeketh and heareth; the Words of the Holy Scriptures and DOES them; for in them is life eternal with our Lord!

8:34 Blessed is the man that heareth me [the wisdom of God], watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.   8:35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

Any compromise with any part of the Word of God is diverting the saints from eternal life to destruction and eternal death.  

8:36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

 

Proverbs  9

Wisdom calls us to the Wedding Feast of Lamb.  By God’s wisdom, Jesus Christ is building the spiritual temple of God and preparing for the marriage of the Lamb.

Proverbs 9:1 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:  9:2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

Wisdom calls out to us to come to God the Father and Jesus Christ; and to become ONE in full UNITY with them, by fully internalizing every Word of God!

9:3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,  9:4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

Let us eat of the unleavened [sinless] Bread of Life, which is the Word of God; and drink of the wine [blood] of the [Passover] sacrifice of Christ in full wholehearted repentance.

Speaking of Passover:

9:5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

Repent and forsake all false ways without any compromise

9:6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

The wicked reject correction; but the wise are grateful for the opportunity to learn, grow and overcome!

9:7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.   9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

To respect the Word of God is the beginning of learning wisdom.  To reject any part of the Word of God is to reject knowledge of the way to eternal life; and is the road to damnation.

9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Through diligence to live by every Word of God and zealously applying God’s Word in all our conduct ; true wisdom is learned and eternal life and much honor is achieved!

9:11For by me [God’s Word of wisdom] thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.

9:12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

Each one of us will be judged by OUR OWN actions and not by the actions of others.

The ignorant and foolish are insistent on the rightness of their own ways, knowing nothing spiritually.  Do not follow anyone away from zeal for the teachings and commandments of Jesus Christ.  Give no heed to the foolish clamor of those who have no zeal to live by every Word of God.

9:13 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.

The deceivers speak pleasant things and offer rewards which seem so sweet, but fill us with much sorrow and bitterness in the end.  

Spiritual apostates and false religions offer the Easy Button approach which tolerates sin and says that Jesus is love and will overlook sin;  when Christ himself said “go and sin no more” .

Jesus Christ said:

Revelation 22:13    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

ONLY those who zealously KEEP God’s commandments and teachings, shall be changed to spirit and enter the Holy City!

22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

The willfully sinful shall NOT enter the city of God but will be judged and thrown into the lake of fire

22:15 For without are dogs [pack mentality, man followers], and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Revelation  20:12   And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Whoever will not repent and lives contrary to the Word of God; compromising with God’s Word and rebelling:  Shall be cast into the fire of perdition.

20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Proverbs 9:14 For she [wickedness, idolatry and temptation] sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,  9:15To call passengers [travelers] who go right on their ways:9:16 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,  9:17 Stolen waters are are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.

It is death to compromise with any part of the Word of God, to rebel against the Word of God  or to try and justify our sins and refuse to repent!

9:18 But he [who turns aside from the Word of God] knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

Brethren, compromise with the Word of God is rampant in today’s spiritual Ekklesia.

Today, we are being judged as to our fitness to be among the chosen as a part of the bride; and we are failing dramatically to reach even the minimum standard to be accepted.  To try and save us God is about to reject us into great tribulation. (Rev 3:16) 

Stop idolizing men, organizations and traditions.   Stop polluting God’s Sabbath by buying in restaurants, cooking and working, or paying others to work on the Sabbath. 

The brethren need to START being zealous in open minded study of the Word of God and in the zealous application of what you learn.

Do use the categories menu to study through all of the Epistles, Minor Prophets etc etc.  Learn what Paul really taught about the law and the commandments, and arm yourselves against the twisting of Paul’s words to attack the law, when Paul was a champion of the law.
