DIVINE WISDOM - PART 2

THE PERSONALITIES AND IMPORTANCE OF DIVINE WISDOM


Because it is a spirit, God's Wisdom has a personality without a body.

The author of Proverbs spoke more about it as a personality and its benefits to mankind.

Proverbs 2:1-6

[1]My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

[2]So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

[3]Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

[4]If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

[5]Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

[6]For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

 

He used the word "her" for wisdom as if it were a person with a body. Yes, the Spirit is a person with emotions, and so are His gifts.

When you desire something, search for it, and pray to the Lord with faith for it, He will give it to you.

All of God's gifts are desired and prayed for, including Wisdom.


1 Corinthians 14:1

[1]Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

When you desire something, simply pray for it with faith, and the Lord will grant it to you as He did to Solomon.

That's James 1:5 says, "if any of you lacks Wisdom, you should ask".

When you gain wisdom, you reap numerous benefits in both your spiritual and physical lives.

If you are a Christian and lack God's Wisdom, you are very likely to fall, because the enemy who is fighting with us uses deceptive words to deceive people.

So, when wisdom enters your heart or enters your life, it gives or makes you:

1. Discrete 

 2. Understanding

3. Get Long life and prosperity

4. Love to increase knowledge of God

5. Conscious of judgement And Risk

6. Shun the love of money (riches)

7. Honor your parent

 

 

To be discreet means to have or demonstrate discernment or good judgment in one's conduct, particularly in one's speech: PRUDENT

When you gain wisdom, you become more discreet. You make responsible decisions that will not harm you but will keep you safe from the devil's plans and will save you from all kinds of failures.

You choose good things and say things that will not lead you to destruction, because the tongue leads many to destruction, but wisdom allows you to live and conquer with ease.

Proverbs 21:23

[23]Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

With God's wisdom, you will filter every word that comes out of your mouth and present it to both man and God so that it does not harm your soul.

For there are many people who promised God but were unable to fulfill it, and as a result, the Lord punished them, and some were even killed (Ananias And The Wife).

When you become discreet, you will be able to recognize a woman, lady, man, or boy (dangerous person) who is evil and who can destroy your life, and you will be able to abstain from his or her ways so that you will be saved. It assists you in fleeing sin so that you may remain righteous before the Lord God.


WISDOM DELIVERS YOU FROM EVIL WOMEN OR LADIES (PROSTITUTE)

Proverbs 2:16-19

[16]To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

[17]Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

[18]For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

[19]None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.


You will gain the ability to deliver yourself from a strange woman.

The stranger in this context refers to a woman who does not know God and is strange to the kingdom because she is an agent.

Such a woman can knock you down and make you never get back up.

There are numerous examples of such ladies or women who have caused great men to lose their blessings, destinies, and everything good they brought to the world.

They can flatter you with their words: singing praises of you, telling you all kinds of sweet words just to make you fall for them and go on bed with them, knowing full well that you will commit sexual immorality with them and that you will perish.


They can sing praises of your handsomeness, show you higher kind of favor on campus as if love is their nature, even buy expensive things for you and make unusual closeness to you and if you don't realize they have slept with you and taken something valuable from you.

When they see a man or a young boy operating in the gifts of the Spirit, they may approach you, some may even attack you, show themselves naked to you, dress in any way to attract you, but when Wisdom enters your hearts, you will know and understand the kind of people they are, and you will reject them.

  Prov 7:4 Say unto wisdom, Thou [art] my sister; and call understanding [thy] kinswoman:

  Prov 7:5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger [which] flattereth with her words.

  Prov 7:6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

  Prov 7:7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

  Prov 7:8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

  Prov 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

  Prov 7:10 And, behold, there met him a woman [with] the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

  Prov 7:11 (She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

  Prov 7:12 Now [is she] without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

  Prov 7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him, [and] with an impudent face said unto him,

  Prov 7:14 [I have] peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

  Prov 7:15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

  Prov 7:16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved [works], with fine linen of Egypt.

  Prov 7:17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

  Prov 7:18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

  Prov 7:19 For the goodman [is] not at home, he is gone a long journey:

  Prov 7:20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the day appointed.

  Prov 7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

  Prov 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

  Prov 7:23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it [is] for his life.


When Potiphar's wife wanted to commit sexual immorality with him, Joseph acted with great discretion.

Joseph knew the Lord was with him, and if he did that with Potiphar's wife, the Lord's presence would leave him.

Joseph was a young boy who carried God's presence, and everything he did was successful because he was holy in the eyes of the Lord.Genesis 39:1-8

[1]And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

[2]And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

[3]And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

[4]And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

[5]And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

[6]And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

[7]And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

[8]But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;

He was a young, beautiful virgin with a great destiny.

Satan wanted to change his destiny, but he needed to go through someone. Satan is a personality without a body who operates through empty human beings (people who lack God's Spirit).

So Satan used Potiphar's wife as a tool of fornication in order to deprive Joseph of God's favor so that he could seize him.

Genesis 39:9-12

[9]There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

[10]And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

[11]And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

[12]And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

But Joseph, who feared the Lord, rejected Potiphar's wife's words and fled for his life so that he would not sin against the Lord.

He knew what the Lord had in store for him in the future, so he kept himself holy and always won God's favor.

If you want to gain God's favor, keep your self-holiness or become a virgin, and the Lord will increase and make you great.

Luke 1:30-31

[30]And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.

[31]And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

The secret to Mary's unusual favor from God is that she was a virgin and a God-fearing lady. Consider how Christians today praise Mary for bringing forth a whole savior of the world.

Fornication or adultery is a type of sin that destroys God's temple, the body. So, if you destroy the body, which is the temple of the Lord, the Holy Spirit will be unable to dwell in you because He despises all forms of uncleanliness, such as masturbation, lesbianism, and homosexuality, among others.

1 Corinthians 6:15-16,18-20

[15]Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

[16]What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

[18]Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

[19]What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

[20]For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.


2. Understanding

Understanding is a gift in and of itself, but when you are endowed with Wisdom, you also gain understanding.

The same spirit that gives Wisdom also gives you the ability to understand and helps you to grow in knowledge.

Every wise man has comprehension.

2 Chronicles 2:12

[12]Huram said moreover, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

Isaiah 19:12; Jeremiah 9:12

It takes a wise and understanding spirit to build for the Lord. You become wise in His guise if you come to the realization that there is a God and acknowledge Him.

  Prov 24:3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

Building is about more than just structure; it is about winning souls, gathering souls, and building your family with the fear of the Lord as the primary focus. It takes wisdom to reach this level of fear of the Lord and heartfelt service to Him.

Proverbs 11:30

[30]The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

So, in order to be considered wise, one must gain knowledge and understanding of soul winning through Wisdom. Why should the soul triumph?

If you have truly seen a light that can save others, you simply go to your friends who are stumbling in the darkness and invite them in love to join you in the light so that they, too, may be saved.

Selfish people are not wise because their prosperity is limited, but he who is free and gives freely as a soul winner is wise because his reward in heaven is great.

Is the foolish who scatters; if you are a leader who cannot gather but scatters, you are thought to be a man devoid of wisdom.

Proverbs 11:29

[29]He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

If you stand against your own, you will gain nothing in the future; when you are old, instead of enjoying the fruits of your labor, you will have nothing because none of your children will be financially or spiritually stable enough to support and care for you.

Such a person is akin to an ostrich, who does not care about its young and has no compassion for its family.

Job 39:13-15

[13]Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

[14]Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

[15]And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

They are very well-made, but they are extremely careless. They abandon the eggs or young on the ground and do not protect them. They forget that any wild beast that travels or creaps on the ground may knowingly or unknowingly crash into it.


So it takes Wisdom to keep your young ones; if you are a church or denominational leader, you must protect your young ones; you must understand that if you keep them somewhere and then turn to another place without protecting them, a wild beast will break or crush them, and you will never find them again in their natural state.

Job 39:16

[16]She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

She is even hardened against her own children, which is why we have fathers or parents who don't even care about their children, treating them as if they aren't his or hers.

Fathers or parents who reject their children as such are inexperienced and uneducated parents.

Job 39:17

[17]Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

As a result, all of these people lack wisdom.

Wisdom says you will shine forever and ever. A wise person gathers for tomorrow but not today, but the fool gathers and spends it all or does not gather at all because he does not think about tomorrow.

Lamentations 4:3

[3]Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.

So, even if the monsters are compared to Ostriches, the monsters are correct or better than the Ostriches in the wilderness who don't think about their young ones, so such leaders are even more wicked than a monster. Cruel leaders, cruel parents, and cruel spiritual leaders are all as numerous as the Ostriches in the desert.


So, whether you are a religious leader, a government official, or a parent, you must ensure that you provide for your children. Allow them to go where you couldn't, and you will be rewarded in perpetuity.

Proverbs 3:13-15

[13]Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

[14]For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

[15]She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.


Remember that he who is given wisdom by the Lord is also given understanding, because the Spirit who gives wisdom is the one who helps us understand everything.

If you lack the Spirit of Wisdom, you will be unable to understand the things of the Spirit, which include the word of God and the things of God. This is why those who are in the world mostly speak against God's things. Some even insult pastors, curse Jesus, and commit other atrocities against those who follow Christ because they lack God's wisdom and understanding.

So Jesus asked the disciples to becareful, because those who are in the world have not thus mind with us. 

3. Long Life and Prosperity

Wisdom is required if you want to live a long and prosperous life with your loved ones. Wisdom keeps a man's path and preserves him so that his feet do not trip over the fouler's traps. We have so many people who have lost their lives as a result of their foolishness.Proverbs 3:16-17

[16]Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

[17]Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

People who joines the occult, people who uses their tongues not to speak good things, people who steals and all those who does something that directly affect their own soul and body. Wisdom gives you peace, Wisdom helps you to become sounded in all your endeavors that evil will not visit your doors.  

Proverbs 3:23-24

[23]Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

[24]When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

Yes, we have people who cannot sleep because of sudden fear; many have sold their souls to the enemy for money, and they have been given orders to sacrifice so many things; they have been given orders so that they even fear to sleep and cannot get enough sleep. If you have Christ Jesus and the word in you, you are wise, and you will sleep soundly. You will not experience sudden fear because the Lord will keep you and your ways.


Psalm 91:1-11


If you truly want to live long and gain all riches, Wisdom is the most important thing you must have; fear the Lord and walk in accordance with His status.

There are so many people who died before their time because they rejected the word of God. 

They couldn't acknowledge the Lord and so He the Lord stood up against them. When Saul became too familiar with the Lord, he even decided to abandon the word the Lord spoke unto him and his life became miserable. 

1 Samuel 15:22-23,35

[22]And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

[23]For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

[35]And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the LORD repented that he had made Saul king over Israel.


Is it not true that Saul was not anointed by Samuel to lead Israel by the Lord God? But as of late, the same Lord has declared that He regrets making the same Saul king.


Never make fun of the God we worship; if you want a long life and prosperity, treat Him well. He will lift you up and bless you with wealth. When Moses, a man who had even seen and spoken with God, also disregarded a message He had given him, God took his life and caused someone else to succeed him.

Proverbs 4:7-12

[7]Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

[8]Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

[9]She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

[10]Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

[11]I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

[12]When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

You will find favor when you go out, and you will find favor when you return because of wisdom. Take note of how people acknowledge the presence of wise people. Everywhere you go, you are easily promoted and honored.

Because of his wisdom, Joseph was promoted among other men, and favor was bestowed upon him.

Walk in Wisdom, be as wise as a serpent and as peaceful as a dove, and you will even rule over your enemies' land.

Joseph, Daniel, and all those who acknowledged the Lord and walked in Wisdom rose to positions of power.

Wisdom can make you a great ruler, and buildings will be built with your words. You can build and lead a family with victory, you can build a church with peace and victory, and you can lead in any good place with success.


When you have or gain wisdom from above, it also assists you in being delivered from evil companionship, which can end your life in a sudden death and unsound mind.

That is why a bad relationship taints good manners. It is not necessary to associate with everyone. You must be cautious with your friends and never trust anyone.

With wisdom, you will recognize and recognize those who can help you shape your life for success and those who can ruin it.

Many people are influenced to join gangs or groups, and their manners are tainted.

When they return home, their parents see them differently; they see them as not being the people they were before, because evil friends have corrupted them. Do not be ignorant of evil friends; you must be cautious and keep your foot away from them if you want God's blessings.

There are some friends who can sabotage your earthly vision through evil.

Proverbs 1:10-19

[10]My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

[11]If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

[12]Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

[13]We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

[14]Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

[15]My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

[16]For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

[17]Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

[18]And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

[19]So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

If they call you to smoke with them, rube others with them so that you can become wealthy, join an occult group or any secret society, don't go and join them because the Bible says such people run to shed blood and their end is bitter.

Wisdom will bless you everywhere, and you will see the Lord's glory on your life.


Psalms 1:1-6

[1]Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

[2]But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

[3]And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

[4]The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

[5]Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

[6]For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.





4. Love to increase knowledge of God


Proverbs 1:5

[5]A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:


For you to gain knowledge in order not to be ignorant of the devices of the enemy, you have to increase knowledge by reading, listening and watching or getting sermons. 

The only way to get increase of knowledge is learning, so you keep learning by reading, listening or watching sermons preach by men of God. 

The word of God comes in different perspectives just to make you stand clean and pure continuously and perfect in the good ways. 

To become blemish, you need to read or listen to the word of God and walk by it.  

2 Timothy 3:16-17

[16]All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

[17]That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

So, the wise listens to inspirational messages or sermons to keep the faith so that he will become blemish and will not lose faith in the Lord. You accept reproof, corrections, instructions and corrections so that in all you will become perfect, you will have a right standing before God. 

It's only the fool who hates reproof and corrections. The wise embraces any word that comes from the Lord and believes and accept it in good faith irrespective of its perspective. 

Prov 1:7 The fear of the Lord [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

It is only the fool who hates guidance, instructions or knowledge, if you correct them, bible says they will turn against you. That is why they are people who rejects the word of God are fools.

5. Wisdom makes you so conscious of the judgement of God. Every wise person thinks about what will happen tomorrow after taking any decision that he will not find himself wanting. 

Just as the ants do, they gather when there is no rain because they know it might rain tomorrow or any hour to come. They are always prepared to face any kind of whether and sake of that if it should rain, they are safe. 

Comparing this to a man’s soul, a man will think of the judgement of the Lord, knowing that everything he does, there is a judgement awaiting him. 

  Prov 17:24 Wisdom [is] before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool [are] in the ends of the earth.

It makes you love your soul and so that you will be saved from the wrath of the Lord coming some day of which no one knows, it also helps you to walk circumspectly. 

  Prov 19:8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.

As a good student, you make sure to always learn to get yourself prepared to meet or write any exams so that you will not fail, so a wise person works out his own salvation that he will not fall short of the glory of God and miss rapture someday to come. You will fail when you don’t prepare for exams and at end of the day you will be deferred or repeated. 

Every wise person loves his soul, he does not want to fall into the wrath of the Lord coming someday. If you are not cautious about the end time, you see that you do everything you want which may even go or be in contrary to the word of the Lord. 

  Eph 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

  Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

  Eph 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].

  Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

  Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Yes, you are always prepared and do not want to miss the mark. Just comparing the 5 wise virgins and the five foolish virgins who were to meet the bride, the 5 wise virgins kept their oil because they know if they should have used it all that moment, it would finish early and they would not be able to meet the bridegroom. Why were the other five who took no oil with them considered as foolish? “They were considered as fools because they never thought of bringing oil which would light up their lamp”. They began to find themselves wanting when they heard the bridegroom has come. Matthew 25:1-13

Now when they went away after the bridegroom had come to buy oil to fill the vessel, the time had past and so they were all sacked after they have come back. 

  Mt 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

  Mt 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

  Mt 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

  Mt 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

  Mt 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

  Mt 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

In all things, we will give an account, whatever we have done on earth whether it is good or bad, we will account for it one day. 

  2Cor 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.






6. Shun the love of money: We all know money to be a good thing even as the bible says but loving it will take you through sorts of sins of which will make you lose your own soul and life. 

Money in its nature of likeness is very evil, it takes the heart of many away from the Lord and establishes the feet of many on the path of the unrighteous. 

  1Tim 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

I know how sweet it is and sounds when you gain a lot of money when you work and fill your house with all kinds of substances and also as a student how good it sounds when you have money on you to do what your heart desires but in all if you lust after it and work towards it in the way that does not please the Lord, it ends in sorrow. 

There are so many ways people earn their money which is not accepted in the sight of the Lord. There are students who stick lotto, bet, some also join the occult and many groups in order to get affluence and influence over others but in all, it ends in sorrow and sudden death. 

We have government officials or leaders who also uses evil ways and means to defraud the innocent to fill their houses that they may feel better in life but in it all it ends in sorrow. 

  Pss 15:5 [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved.

So, you have to be very careful in life, do not do anything that will take your life away, do not follow after money else your life will be at stake. There are many people who are rich but because of the way they got their riches is evil, they have fallen into diverse problems of which they have the wish to get out of it but they are swallowed by the problems. 

  Prov 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

  Prov 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

  Prov 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

  Prov 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

  Prov 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

  Prov 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:

  Prov 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

  Prov 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

  Prov 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.



Don’t trust in riches but let your trust be in the Lord and taking the right path for money belongs to the Lord, He is the one that blesses and He adds no sorrow to riches. 

  Prov 11:28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

All those who use evil ways of getting their riches cannot please the Lord with their riches, it doesn’t matter how much you give to your church or how well you pay your tithe and offering out of it. 

Jesus told the rich young man that for him the rich to follow Him Jesus, he should go and sell all his properties and follow Him, but the man found it difficult to do that, Jesus said “it will be difficult for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God”.

  1Jn 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

  1Jn 2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

  1Jn 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

 You have to love the Lord and do not let money take away the love you have for the Lord, there are so many things that are present into world that is taking many away from the Lord. Jesus said “a time will come that the love of many shall wax cold”, surely this is the time but it takes those who are wise and they have known through the word to keep their heart clean unto the Lord that they will not fall into the wrath of the Lord coming someday.

  Prov 11:4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.





7. Honor your parent:   Prov 23:22 Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

Yes, it is very important to listen to your father whether biological or the spiritual who begat you for it is a blessing and it will bring unto them honor even when they are old.

For bible says listening to them in the Lord will give you a long life. Also as fathers or parents comes before children, they have know a lot of things children might have not yet seen or known, so listening to them and the godly directions they give, it will help you walk in life without stumbling or falling. 

All those who rejects the godly advices from fathers or parents do not end successfully. A child who listens to the parents brings honour to the parents.



Proverbs 6:20-23

[20]My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

[21]Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

[22]When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

[23]For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:


When you obey the instructions of your parents, wherever you, it shall lead you and be a glory unto you. 

Whiles those who rejects instructions suffers, you will see yourself in a comfort zone where nothing evil will come your path. 


There are many good parents who advices their children before they come to college and it is the wise child who listens and binds them in the heart.

So, per the advice they give you, if you continually bind them in your heart, it will be very difficult for you to stumble in your life. 


Good parents’ advices children not to join bad friends, not to smoke nor do all kinds of unseemly things that it will end well with them. 

Proverbs 8:33

[33]Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.


     In all I want to tell you is that, loved one, it is a blessing to get wisdom, for God Himself did everything with wisdom, without wisdom He would have been committing all kinds of mistakes. 


When you truely fear the Lord, you will refrain your foot from all kinds of evil and it will be counted unto you as a wise person. 

Proverbs 8:13

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

So, as the scriptures say, wisdom is the principal thing; when we say principal, we mean wisdom is the most important thing. That is why he said, in all your gettings get wisdom. Whatever Holy Spirit gifts you receive, make sure you also receive wisdom and understanding because it will keep you from being destroyed or losing your calling, ministry, or purpose to which the Lord has called you.


Even God could not reject wisdom, and everything He did was done with wisdom.


"Knowledge without wisdom is very dangerous and a wisdom that is not from above is null".


Proverbs 8:22-36

[22]The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

[23]I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

[24]When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

[25]Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

[26]While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

[27]When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

[28]When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

[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:

[30]Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

[31]Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

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

[33]Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.

[34]Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

[35]For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

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