Wisdom is a book of verse incorporated into the Septuagint, or Josephus, written in Greek and translated for you to peruse and understand (pages 56—73). It is a fascinating text, but not incorporated into the Holy Bible as such. It does however focus your mind on what is to come, and is totally left up to you to discover the informalities of the author. My website links are proliferated to indicate a more sustainable belief of where we are going.
The Wisdom of Solomon or Book of Wisdom is a Jewish work, written in Greek, and most likely composed in Alexandria, Egypt. Generally dated to the mid first century BC,
1. The central theme of the work is "Wisdom" itself, appearing under two principal aspects. In its relation to man, Wisdom is the perfection of knowledge of the righteous as a gift from God showing itself in action. In direct relation to God, Wisdom is with God from all eternity.
2. It is one of the seven Sapiential or wisdom books included within the Septuagint, along with Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs (Song of Solomon), Job, and Sirach, and is included in the canon of Deuterocanonical books by the Roman Catholic Church and the anagignoskomena (Gr. ἀναγιγνωσκόμενα, meaning "those which are to be read") of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Most Protestants consider it part of the Apocrypha.
It is common to be taught the history of the Holy Bible from the New Testament, but does not include the Old Testament as well. It is indicative of a lack of learning by Christians who study only from the New Testament but know and understand very little of the Old Testament. The Truth is; if one reads any book but only the last chapter it is certain it will bring confusion about the plot, the culprit, the hero or heroine, the history, or any other confusion, even not enjoying or miss-understanding what the author is trying to present. So in this link I will go through THE DISPENSATIONAL PLAN OF THE BIBLE http://www.godsplan.org.uk/dispensationalplan.htm using the early Apocryphal writings of the New Testament but before this; I will introduce you kicking and screaming to the Old Testament because:
“STANDING AT THE BEGINNING SIGNIFIES A RETURN TO THE PARADISIACAL (PARADISE) STATE OF HUMAN KIND.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apocropha.htm
Wisdom 1:1 “Love righteousness, ye that be judges of the earth: think of the Lord with a good (heart,) and in simplicity of heart seek Him.”
If you judge the world today as it is, it is paramount that righteousness reigns in your judgement, of anything to, anybody; in order to be believed of fairness. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm
Wisdom 1:2 “For He will be found of them that tempt Him not; and sheweth Himself unto such as do not distrust Him.
For God will, without doubt; not show Himself to you, or anyone else, who does not trust in Him 100% leaving you to fend for yourself. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/happy.htm
Wisdom 1:3“For froward thoughts (stubbornly disobedient or contrary) separate from God: and His power, when it is tried, reproveth the unwise.
Being stubborn, disobedient, and contrary to God’s Word only separates you from God and His power. It takes some effort to live your life disciplinary, for you to make headway in this upside down world; and get to know what God wants and expects from you, through the Holy Spirit. It will give you strength, courage, and set you free from earthly worries, as well as direction.
Wisdom 1:4 “For into a malicious soul wisdom shall not enter: nor dwell in the body that is subject unto sin.”
This verse speaks for itself, and it is you who have to put things right not anybody else. People these days are too busy to get involved in your troubles and disputes trying to get their own life together, you must face up to whatever it is that ails you and put it right. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm
Wisdom 1:5 “For the Holy Spirit of discipline will flee deceit, and remove from thoughts that are without understanding, and will not abide when uprighteousness comes in.”
The understanding comes from reading, studying, http://www.godsplan.org.uk/knowledgeandwisdom.htm and understanding fully the three main questions of life:
1. Where do we come from?
2. What are we doing here on earth?
3. Where are we going?
When you can answer all three questions you have understanding: ears to hear, and eyes to see. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earstohear.htm
Wisdom 1:6 “For wisdom is a loving spirit; http://www.godsplan.org.uk/internalspirit.htm and will not acquit a blasphemer of his words: for God is witness of His reins, and a true beholder of His heart, and a hearer of His tongue.”
You may outwit and deceive other people, but God who created you, knows what you are about to do before you do it, and the one you cannot outwit is God.
Wisdom 1:7 “For the Spirit of the Lord filleth the world: and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice.”
The Spirit of the Lord fills this created and fallen earth http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm and everything that is on it http://godsplan.org.uk/fleshage.htm. Nothing happens by mistake, and it is how we repent of our sins that matter, by following God and all His laws. Not man-made laws. It is only by doing this that one has knowledge of the voice and is exceedingly looked after by Him. The trust that you show in Him is reciprocated.
Wisdom 1:8 “Therefore he that speaketh unrighteous things cannot be hidden: neither shall vengeance, when it punisheth, pass by him.”
If you choose to ignore this advice then the onus and punishment will be on you, and your head.
Wisdom 1:9“For inquisition will be made into the counsels of the ungodly: and the sound of his words shall come unto the Lord for the manifestation of his wicked deeds.”
Questions will be asked of you, those that are ungodly will pay the awful price, even if he deceives everybody else, God will know through the spirit that is within all of us. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/internalspirit.htm
Wisdom 1:10 “For the ear of jealousy heareth all things: and the noise of murmurings is not hid.”
For God, is a jealous God and He created us for Himself, and can hear everything by everyone, even if he or she thinks it; make no mistake about that. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/state.htm
Genesis 2:7 (KJV) “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
Wisdom 1:11 “Therefore beware of murmuring, which is unprofitable; and refrain your tongue from backbiting: for there is no word so secret, that shall go for nought: and the mouth that belieth slayeth the soul.”
So; do not murmur for whatever reason or cause. Take care of the soul it is so precious. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/providence%20.htm
Wisdom 1:12 “Seek not death in the error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction with the works of your hands.”
It is harder to go on living than to commit suicide, the next verse will indicate that, nor commit murder for gain, or for any provocation, regardless whatever it is. Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill. Christ 6…Matt 5:21 (KJV) “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgement: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/markofcain.htm
Wisdom 1:13 “For God made not death: neither hath He pleasure in the destruction of the living.”
For God did not create death, it is the evil of Satan. Whose head is to be crushed by Christ for the sake of man. Genesis 3:15 (KJV) “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise Thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deathswallowedup.htm
Wisdom 1:14 For “He created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful, and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth:”
God made everything, which we; and the animals should be happy and enjoy our life, however; the poison of destruction came into the world along with Satan and his rebels. We must live our lives in God, until the day of judgement comes; for God is the only one that can save us from him; [Satan]. (Wheat and Tares) http://www.godsplan.org.uk/parables.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
Wisdom 1:15 (For righteousness is immortal) http://www.godsplan.org.uk/riddleofthesphinx.htm
Wisdom 1:16 “But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to nought, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.
Wisdom 2: 1 “For the ungodly said, reasoning with themselves, but not aright, ‘Our life is short and tedious, and in the death of a man there is no remedy: neither was there any man known to have returned from the grave.’”
The atheist, or ungodly man, says they do not believe God, and that their life is short and tedious, in the death of a man there is no remedy, nor was there any man who returned from the grave. These are the Tares Satan’s rebels. The Holy Spirit was emphatic and stated in words to Paul that in the last days two significant doctrines of demons would emerge that had to be resisted and exposed by the elect who know the truth. The demons did not decide to introduce these doctrines idly. They are not insignificant. They strike at the very heart of the intent of God in the plan of salvation and the adequacy to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. These doctrines are two specific errors, which seek to undermine the rational intent of the creation. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/doctrineofdemons.htm
BELIEVE THE ATHIEST: GODLESS MEN AND WOMEN
Wisdom 2:2 “We are born at all adventure: and we shall be hereafter as though we had never been: for the breath in our nostrils is as smoke, and a little spark in the moving of our heart.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm
Job 8:9 (KJV) “For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because are days upon earth are a shadow.” The verse in Job says it all; so there is no need for disbelief of what is being said by the Godless. It is all in God’s Word the Holy Bible, they even steal from there.
Wisdom 2:3 “Which being extinguished, our body shall be turned to ashes, and our spirit shall pass away as the soft air.” All has been said, just one more verse on this subject. Ecclesiastes 12:7 KJV “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (For safe keeping).
Wisdom 2:4 “And our name shall be forgotten in time, and no man shall have our works in rememberance, and our lives shall pass away as the trace of a cloud, and shall be dispersed as a mist, that is driven away with the beams of the sun, and overcome with the heat thereof.”
Wisdom 2:5 “For our time is a very shadow that passeth away; and after our end there is no returning: for it is fast sealed, that no man cometh again.” As I have shown in (Job verse 2:2 above”) God gives us three score years and ten (70). We are born, go to primary school, and then advance to secondary modern or university. We get married and have children, as well as employment which does not leave us much time in years to study God’s Word. Hence the great Apostasy http://www.godsplan.org.uk/greatapostasy.htm . It is right here where we have to make a firm decision to study, and put aside the time: Or.
Wisdom 2:6 “Come on therefore; let us enjoy the good things which are present: and let us speedily use the creatures like as in youth.
Wisdom 2:7 “Let us fill ourselves with costly wine and ointments: and let no flower of the spring pass by us.
Wisdom 2:8 “Let us crown ourselves with rosebuds, before they be withered:”
Wisdom 2:9 “Let none of us go without his part of our voluptuousness: let us leave tokens of our joyfulness in every place: for this is our portion, and our lot is this.”
Wisdom 2:10 “Let us oppress the poor righteous man, let us not spare the widow, nor reverence the grey hairs of the aged.”
Wisdom 2:11 “Let our strength be the law of justice: for that which is feeble is found to be nothing worth.”
Wisdom 2:12 “Therefore let us lie in wait for the righteous; because He is not for our turn, and He is clean contrary to our doings: He up-braideth [a higher level or position] with our offending the law, and objecteth to our infamy our transgressings of our education.”
Wisdom 2:13 “He professeth to have the knowledge of God: and He calleth Himself the child of the Lord.”
Wisdom 2:14 “He was made to reprove our thoughts.”
Wisdom 2:15 “He is grievous unto us even to behold: for His life is not like other men’s, His ways are of another fashion.”
Wisdom 2:16 “We are esteemed of Him as counterfeits: He abstaineth from our ways as from filthiness: He pronounceth the end of the just to be blessed, and maketh the boast that God is His Father.”
Wisdom 2:17 “Let us see if His words be true: and let us prove what shall happen in the end of Him.”
Wisdom 2:18 “For if the just man be the Son of God, He will help Him,, and deliver Him from the hand of His enemies.”
Wisdom 2:19 “Let us examine Him with despitefulness and torture, that we may know His meekness and prove His patience.”
Wisdom 2:20 “Let us condemn Him with a shameful death: for by His own saying He shall be respected.”
Wisdom 2:21 “Such things they did imagine, and were deceived: for their own wickedness has blinded them.”
Wisdom 2:22 “As for the mysteries of God, they knew them not: neither hoped they for the wages of righteousness, nor discerned a reward for righteous souls.”
Wisdom 2:23 “For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of His own eternity”
Wisdom 2:24 “Nevertheless through envy of the devil came death into the world: and they that are of his side do find it.”
We were warned by Christ at the Sermon on the Mount of these end days, and listening to the godless men and women; and of what they think of righteous persons including Christ Himself. But little do they know of God’s plan for us.
Wisdom 3:1 “But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.”
When God made man of the dust of the Adamah, He breathed His spirit into our nostrils Gen 2:7 (KJV) “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
When we die we go back to God: *Ecclesiastes 12:7 (KJV) “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/dispensationalplan.htm
Wisdom 3:2 “In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery.”
It is simply what we believe; God or Satan. If you had the opportunity to live a happy and protected existence would you not grab it with both hands? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm
Wisdom 3:3 “And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace.”
It be the ungodly men and women who suffer destruction; but the latter part of this verse speaks volumes. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/stars.htm
Wisdom 3:4 “For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.”
In this matter we shall consider first the last end of human life; and secondly, those things by means of which man may advance towards this end, or stray from the path: for the end is the rule of whatever is ordained to the end. And since the last end of human life is stated to be happiness, we must consider: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/lastend.htm
Wisdom 3:5 “And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for Himself.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
Wisdom 3:6 “As gold in the furnace hath He tried them and received them as a burnt offering.” http://godsplan.org.uk/christtheredeemer.htm
Wisdom 3:7 “And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm
The image on the left shows us, without a doubt, the truth of Ecclesiastes 12:7 (KJV) above.*No more ageing, or sickness, and no more death. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deathswallowedup.htm Compared to this world we are now on, there are a quite a few of us who already know where we are going, and it is not far off; just look around you.
Wisdom 3:8 “They shall judge the nations, and have dominion over the people, and their Lord shall reign forever.
If our Lord is living and reigning forever, that means we will as well; which goes to prove what I have been saying all along. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/stars.htm
Wisdom 3:9 “They that put their trust in Him shall understand the truth: and such as be faithful in love shall abide with Him: for grace and mercy is to His saints, and He hath care for His elect.
This website, and the links involved, is readily available to you to understand and learn the truth, as such I will put my home page online for you to copy and paste to your desktop. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
Wisdom 3:10 “But the ungodly shall be punished according to their own imaginations, which have neglected the righteous, and forsaken the Lord.”
This verse is self-explanatory indicating the way of the ungodly and leaving it to their-own imaginations.
Wisdom 3:11 “For whoso despiseth wisdom and nurture, he is miserable, and their hope is vain, their labours unfruitful, and their works unprofitable: Wisdom 3:12 their wives are foolish and their children wicked.”
Wisdom 3:13 “Their offspring is cursed. Wherefore (why) blessed is the barren that is undefiled, which hath not known the sinful bed: she shall have fruit in the visitation of souls.
We all know people as described above, but there is little we can do to help such people, unfortunately they are on a slippery slope to nowhere. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apostasytogodskingdom.htm
Wisdom 3:14 “And blessed is the eunuch, which with his hands hath wrought no iniquity, nor imagined wicked things against God: for unto him shall be given the special gift of faith, http://www.godsplan.org.uk/faith.htm and an inheritance in the temple of the Lord more acceptable to his mind.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritualmaterial.htm
Wisdom 3:15 “For glorious is the fruit of good labours: and the root of wisdom shall never fall away.”
Having ears to hear, and eyes to see, means one does not have to listen to parables, because; through study they develop the skills to understand what is being taught, and shown to them. Once learned properly it is difficult to fall away, or lose faith in what you know. If you are one of these then I advise you to study hard, this website. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earstohear.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
Wisdom 3:16 “As for children of adulterers, they shall not come to their perfection, and the seed of an unrighteous bed shall be rooted out.”
This is the state of Great Britain today. Very few get married, while living in sin, any children born of this kind of relationship shall not come to their perfection. It indicates no commitment to the family either by the male or female, and each can walk away from the situation and start up with another. But because there are a lot of couples doing the same thing, a marriage of longevity is something past. But that does not make it right. Matthew 19:9 (KJV) And I say unto you, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”
Wisdom 3:17 “For though they live long, yet shall they be nothing regarded: and their last age shall be without honour. Wisdom 3:18 Or, if they die quickly, they have no hope, neither comfort in the day of trial. Wisdom 3:19 For horrible is the end of the unrighteous generation.”
These three verses speak volumes of wisdom, but woe; the generation which now is, has to live with the decision that they have made. God’s Word is so important, why do you think that the effort Satan, and his band of followers make every effort to quell what the Bible teaches. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/oneworldsystemwithout_God2.htm Genesis 2:24 (KJV) “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
Everything is sexually abhorrent; same sex marriages, cross dressers, etc, are all Satan’s activities, even Political correctness to block free speech. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bible_and_homosexuality
Wisdom 4:1 “Better it is to have no children, and to have virtue: for the memorial thereof is immortal: because it is known with God, and with men.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethicalimplications.htm
Wisdom 4:2 “When it is present, men take example of it; and when it is gone, they desire it: it weareth a crown, and triumpheth forever, having gotten the victory, striving for undefiled rewards.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/christianrace.htm
Wisdom 4:3 “But the multiplying brood of the ungodly shall not thrive, nor take deep rooting from bastard slips, nor lay any fast foundation.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/markofcain.htm
Wisdom 4:4 “For though they flourish in branches for a time: yet standing not fast, they shall be shaken with the wind, and through the force of winds they shall be rooted out.”
Wisdom 4:5 “The imperfect branches shall be broken off, their fruit unprofitable, not ripe to eat, yea, meet for nothing.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/oneworldsystemwithout_God.htm
Wisdom 4:6 “For children begotten of unlawful beds are witnesses of wickedness against their parents in their trial.”
This answers 4:1—6. Single parents, especially females, with a son or sons; are in danger of ill-discipline from them. They cannot enforce the rules like a father who leads the way, they have not the strength to tackle them. Should the boys refuse to toe the line the father disciplines them, severely, if needed which is more than the female when they are babies. They themselves grow up to be men, and unless they have leadership and direction, will go astray much like todays children.
Wisdom 4:7 “But though the righteous be prevented with death, yet shall he be in rest.”
However; those who have been brought up in a male and female family live a long and mostly, uneventful life. But when death does finally come they will be protected by God, and be at rest. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/mansdestiny.htm
Wisdom4:8 “For honourable age is not that which standeth in length of time, nor that is measured by number of years.”
Old age does not stand in time, and it is not measured in the number of years you live, just look around you at older men who have achieved nothing, and are atheist.
Wisdom 4:9 “But wisdom is the grey hair unto men, and an unspotted life is old age.”
Wisdom is the grey hair to men, not complete baldness, and an unspotted life is essential, which means to choose the right path; and not mix with wicked. The Romans (Eagle), Hitler (the swastika) etc had insignias to enable commanders to spot their men devoted to their cause. Still to come is Daniel’s prophecy of the little horn and the Beast. (Revelation 13, Daniel 7 KJV) Which side will you be on: Satan’s or God’s. https://www.biblegateway.com/
Wisdom 4:10 “He pleased God, and was beloved of Him: so that living among sinners He was translated.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nativityofjesus.htm
Wisdom 4:11 “Yea, speedily was He taken away, lest that wickedness should altar His understanding, or deceit beguile the soul.”
He fulfilled the prophecy (Gen 3:15 KJV) and His heel was bruised at the crucifixion, but not before His restoring His and God’s followers. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/parables.htm
Wisdom 4:12 “For the bewitching of naughtiness doth obscure things that are honest; and the wandering of concupiscence (powerful feelings of physical power) doth undermine the simple mind.”
The simple mind is prey to the enemy; he will give you whatever you want as long as it is to his ultimate goal; you have been warned.
Wisdom 4:13 “He being made perfect in a short time, fulfilled a long time.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/firstperaeandiscourses.htm
Wisdom 4:14 “For His soul pleased the Lord: therefore hasted He to take Him away from among the wicked” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deputation.htm
The overriding decision to take Christ away from the wicked was the decision by Pontius Pilate to release a prisoner or crucify Christ, however; the result was seen by all but the people understood not, and they will pay for that.
Wisdom 4:15 “This the people saw, and understood not, neither laid they up this in their minds, that His grace and mercy is with His saints, and that He hath respect unto His chosen.”
He loves us as much as we love Him, this is the whole reason why Christ has to come to earth again, He is aware of His followers, and those that hate Him. http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm
Wisdom 4:16 “Thus the righteous that is dead shall condemn the ungodly which are living; and youth which is soon perfected the many years and old age of the unrighteous.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/signs.htm
Wisdom 4:17 “For they shall see the end of the wise, and shall not understand what God in His counsel hath decreed of him, and to what end the Lord hath set him in safety.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/apocalypse.htm
Wisdom 4:18 “They shall see Him, and despise Him; but God shall laugh them to scorn; and they shall thereafter be a vile carcase, and a reproach among the dead for evermore.” Psalm 2 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+2&version=KJV
Wisdom 4:19 “For He shall rend them, and cast them down headlong, that they shall be speechless; and He shall shake them from the foundation; and they shall utterly be laid waste, and be in sorrow; and their memorial shall perish.”
Wisdom 4:20 “And when they cast up the account of their sins, they shall come with fear: and their own iniquities shall convince them to their face.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deathswallowedup.htm (19 & 20).
Wisdom 5:1 “Then shall the righteous man stand in great boldness before the face of such as have afflicted Him, and made no account of His labours.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/doctrineofdemons.htm
Wisdom 5:2 “When they see it, they shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the strangeness of His salvation, so far beyond all that they looked for.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
Wisdom 5:3 “And they repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit shall say within themselves. “This was He, whom we had sometimes in derision [contempt & mockery] and a proverb of reproach.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/godcontrols.htm
Wisdom 5:4 “We fools accounted His life madness, and His end to be without honour: Wisdom 5:5 “How is He numbered among the children of God, and His lot is among the saints!” Wisdom 5:6 “Therefore have we erred from the way of truth, and the light of righteousness hath not shined unto us, and the sun of righteousness rose not upon us.” Wisdom 7 “We wearied ourselves in the way of wickedness and destruction: yea, we have gone through deserts, where there lay no way: but as for the way of the Lord, we have not known it.”
Verses 4—7, Indicate the whole soul searching of Israel; after the crucifixion of Christ. What they failed to understand is why Israel was chosen in the first place, and what the first advent signified. To answer these; and many other questions would take a lot of time and effort, suffice to say the study of the website God’s Plan will reveal the whole truth from beginning to end, but will take great effort and understanding. Is it worth it? you may ask, well I can only speak for God, it is impossible for Him to lie: unlike the earthly system from beginning to end. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/knowledgeandwisdom.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/gathering.htm
Wisdom 5:8 “What hath pride profited us? or what good hath riches with our vaunting [bragging] brought us?” Wisdom 5:9 “All those things are passed away like a shadow, and as a post that hasted by; Wisdom 5:10 “and as a ship that passeth over the waves of the water, which when it has gone by, the trace thereof cannot be found, neither the pathway of the keel in the waves:” Wisdom 5:11 “or as when a bird hath flown through the air, there is no token of her way to be found, but the light air being beaten with the stroke of her wings, and parted with the violent noise and motion of them, is passed through, and therein afterwards no sign where she went is to be found.” Wisdom 5:12 “Or like as when an arrow is shot at a mark, it parteth the air, which immediately cometh together again, so that a man cannot know where it went through:” Wisdom 5:13 “Even so we in like manner, as soon as we are born, began to draw to our end, and had no sign or virtue to show; but were consumed in our own wickedness.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/necessityofgrace.htm Wisdom 5:14 “For the hope of the ungodly is like dust that is blown away with the wind; like a thin froth that is driven away with the storm; like as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, and passeth away as the rememberance of a guest that tarrieth but a day.
Wisdom 5:15 “But the righteous live forever more; their reward is also with the Lord, and the care of them is with the most High.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/witnessofthestars.htm http://www.godsplan.org.uk/witness2.htm
Wisdom 5:16 “Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with His right hand shall He cover them, and with His arm shall He protect them.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/christianrace.htm
Wisdom 5:17 “He shall take to Him His jealousy (protectiveness) for complete armour, and make the creature (http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm) His weapon for the revenge of His enemies.”
We hear God in the Holy Bible say “I am a jealous God;” however; there are two kinds of jealousy: God is a protective God.
1. Is a protective jealousy.
2. Is envious, or jealous of someone/something.
Wisdom 6:18 “He shall put on righteousness as a breastplate, and true judgement instead of a helmet. Wisdom 6:19 “He shall take holiness for an invincible shield. Wisdom 6:20 “His severe wrath shall He sharpen for a sword, and the world shall fight with Him against the unwise.” Wisdom 6:21 Then shall the righteous aiming thunderbolts; and from the clouds, as from a well-drawn bow, shall they fly to the mark. Wisdom 6:22 “And hailstones full of wrath shall be cast as out of a stone bow, and the water of the sea shall rage against them, and the floods shall cruelly drown them.”
Wisdom 6:23 “Yea, a mighty wind shall stand up against them, and like a storm shall blow them away: thus iniquity shall lay waste the whole earth, and ill dealing shall overthrow the thrones of the mighty.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
Wisdom 7:1 “Hear therefore, O ye kings, and understand; learn, ye that be judges of the ends of the earth.” Wisdom 7:2 “Give ear, ye that rule the people, and glory in the multitude of nations.” Wisdom 7:3 “For power is given you of the Lord, and sovereignty from the Highest, who shall try your works, and search out your counsels”. Wisdom 7:4 “Because, being ministers of His kingdom, ye have not judged aright, nor kept the law, nor walked after the counsel of God;”
Wisdom 7:5 “horribly and speedily shall He come upon you: for a sharp judgement shall be to them that be in high places.” Wisdom 7:6 “For mercy will soon pardon the meanest: but mighty men shall be mightily tormented.” Wisdom 7:7 “For He, which is Lord over all shall fear no man’s person, neither shall He stand in awe of any man’s greatness: for He hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike.” Wisdom 7:8 “But a sore trial shall come upon the mighty.”
Wisdom 7:9 “Unto you therefore, O kings, do I speak that you may learn wisdom, and not fall away.” Wisdom 7:10 “For they that keep holiness holily shall be judged holy: and they that have learned such things shall find what to answer,”
Wisdom 7:11 “Wherefore [why] set your affection upon My Words; desire them and you shall be instructed.”
Wisdom 7:12 “Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her.”
Wisdom 7:13 “She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them. Wisdom 7:14 “Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.” Wisdom 7:15 “To think therefore upon her is the perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth out for her shall quickly be without care.” Wisdom 7:16 “For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and meeteth them in every thought.” Wisdom 7:17 “For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love;” Wisdom 7:18 “And love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of
in-corruption;” Wisdom 7:19 “And incorruption maketh us near unto God:” Wisdom 20 “therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth [you] to a kingdom.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27skingdom.htm
Here is the completion of (part 1) of Wisdom; part 2 to follow shortly. It shows that the reading and understanding so far, indicates the desire to reach God’s kingdom. However; God is wise, and knows which of those He wants in His Kingdom. So read and study hard to attain the Kingdom. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/christianrace.htm
