Good Morning Beloved Family,
We have so much to be thankful today.
You have chosen to awaken us this day
and regardless of the challenges we may encounter
We are exceedingly abundantly blessed to have received You gift
Lord, Thank you for our congregation, for each and every person
thank you for the all many generations, and vastness of our experiences,
allowing us to share and learn from not only You but one another
We even thank you Lord, that we don’t always get along.
That through Your Holy Spirit, we can reconcile our differences
and come together, in agreement, for Your mission
Thank you for the challenges you give us to live as your church,
Thank you for giving us wisdom in breaking down dividing barriers
The winds of change are constantly blowing across our nation
Father, we pray for our government leaders
Help us to be a country that cares for all its citizens,
a country that listens to the people
We pray for our church leaders
that Christ would return to the head of the church
that sound doctrine, divine truth would be preached
and we as Your church, would yield to Your will
rather than our own, that we be a voice,
Your voice to both saints and sinners
That we leave here with peace, and our day be fruitful
for Your purposes and plans
All of these things we pray and ask in the name of Jesus
True wisdom comes from God; it is not produced in our schools or universities.
You can graduate from every university in the world, you can adorn your walls with every degree in the book, but unless you know and fear God, you lack wisdom.
The wisdom of man is foolishness with God. The wisdom of God is so high above the wisdom of man. Since many people today have no fear of God, they lack wisdom.
Many people today would like to possess wisdom. Not too many colleges today are giving classes on how to obtain wisdom.
Wisdom was once defined as the power of judging rightly and following the soundest course of action.
Wisdom is basically broken down into two major categories:
The wisdom of man.
The wisdom of God.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
People are more educated than ever before. We live in the age of advanced technology. On the other hand, we have a society with more sin, more crime, more illnesses, and more wars.
of man will never solve the ills of this society. Many are so busy
trying to obtain wisdom, they neglect the source of true wisdom, that can only come from
Those who refuse to listen to the voice of wisdom, will someday find themselves in need of help, and unable to find it.
We live in a world today when there is every opportunity available to obtain a decent education. We have more scientists in the world today than we have ever had throughout human history. And while many advances have taken place, yet the world as a whole, is in far worse condition. More poverty, famine, disease, hate, violence, suicide, murder, the list ongoing and ever growing.
During the twentieth century, we experienced an information explosion, that has been unparalleled in human history. An "instant access" to massive volumes of knowledge, as close as the click of your mouse. Yet with all we have really learned and with all that's been written, man's wisdom is still impotent to answer life's most basic questions. "How can we obtain peace on earth?"
And spiritual questions, such as, "What is the true meaning of life? Where did we come from? How did we get here? Where do we go when we die?" still go unanswered, apart from the wisdom of God.
Why then do we still have a sinful tendency to look first to man's wisdom and virtually ignore the sufficiency of God's wisdom found in the Bible?
King Solomon was the wisest man whoever lived in all the world, but all his wisdom was brought to nought by his own decision in following paganism.
The Bible seems to imply strongly that Solomon was not saved, due to his ways of idolatry.
King Saul was a wise man used of God, until one day, he failed to listen to the voice of wisdom.
Saul was told by the prophet Samuel, to kill all the Amalekites, and all the cattle. This seemed like a simple thing to do, especially since Saul had all the might and power to do it.
Instead of following the voice of wisdom from Samuel, Saul began to follow his own wisdom. He thought it would be best to save the King of the Amalekites and some choice cattle.
Because Saul followed his own foolish wisdom, and not the wisdom of God, he was rejected by God in being king of Israel. Saul had everything in the kingdom he wanted. He could have the best house, the best land, the best servants, and the best wives. He possessed everything, except the wisdom of God, this he rejected. Saul did not judge rightly, and follow the soundest course of action laid out for him by God.
Beloved, we have people today, who think they are wiser than God. God knows the
very intent of the heart. Sin and disobedience will never get past
God. You may fool some people all the time, but you can never fool God
If we truly understood the stark contrast, the absolute opposition of the one to the other, we would quickly leave behind the elementary understanding of the world, to fully embrace the riches of His divine wisdom.
Our thinking is being attacked from all sides by worldly philosophies, methodologies, and false theologies, making every effort to attempt to divert you from the Word of God; the only source that can satisfy the deep needs of the human heart. But this is not a new attack.
In Scripture, we learn that the believers in Corinth face the same problem. When they became Christians and were awakened to the revelation of God, they were exposed to an obvious conflict.
In 1 Corinthians 1:18-19, the apostle Paul was describing that conflict.
"For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written,
And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside."
The first-century philosophers viewed the wisdom of God as foolishness, in truth, God exposed their so-called "wisdom" as foolish. That opposition makes the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of God incompatible, as they are mutually exclusive.
In 1 Corinthians 2:7, "We speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God
predestined before the ages to our glory." The Greek word translated
"mystery" doesn't actually refer to something strange or puzzling. It's a
technical term for the kind of truth man has not previously known but is
After the death of the prophet Samuel, could not ask him for wise council. Saul finally turned to witchcraft, to find an answer for his fate.
Many people, even today, who still seek the occult for wisdom. Satan is wise, he was full of wisdom. His wisdom simply became corrupt after his fall from Heaven. This is the reason we need God on our side; we are no match for the devil. The wisdom of man is no match for the wisdom of Satan.
God has given mankind the ability to study, learn, analyze, categorize, and develop the physical resources of this earth in order to benefit physical life. But, beloved, that's where our wisdom ends.
The wisdom of men makes no contribution in the spiritual dimension, and it doesn't need to make a contribution. God's wisdom is rich and infinite-it needs no supplement.
This generation must learn to heed the voice of wisdom!
True Divine Wisdom!
On the Day of Pentecost, Peter preached a stirring message that convicted the
hearts of the people. This is the kind of preaching we need today.
We have preaching today that will lull you to sleep.
We need preaching today that will awaken and shake up sinners.
We have preaching today that will tickle your ears.
We need preaching today that will call sin, sin.
We have preaching today that will put you at ease.
We need preaching that will stir convict the conscience and call the heart to repentance
We have preaching today that will impress you.
We need preaching today that will shake the gates of Hell.
We have preaching today that makes the devil laugh.
We need preaching today that will upset Congress.
We have preaching today that falls on deaf ears.
We need preaching today that will put Hollywood to shame.
We have preaching today that is powerless.
We need preaching today that will beckon angels.
We have preaching today that condones the sins of our society.
We need to get back to the preaching that is anointed by the Holy Spirit, backed by the Word, and sent from Heaven.
The people at Pentecost were so stirred, they said to Peter, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
There were thousands of “What shall we do?” at Pentecost.
Peter preached a message that shakes our theologians of today. Peter was not out to be a popular preacher, he was out to be a successful preacher. He was out to declare the Word of God. He was out to see that the people received salvation.
altar call was powerful
"Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
Three thousand people listened to the voice of wisdom that day, and were converted to Christ.
The voice of wisdom is still crying today. Can you hear his voice?
Turn from the foolishness of this world.
Turn from the foolishness of drugs.
Turn from the foolishness of immorality.
Turn from the foolishness of alcohol.
Turn from the foolishness of rebellion.
Turn from the foolishness of having your own way.
Turn from the foolishness of neglecting the House of God.
Turn from the foolishness of denying God.
Turn from the foolishness of foolish preaching.
Turn from the foolishness of man.
Turn from the foolishness of living without Jesus.
Hell is full of fools. King Saul was a fool. King Solomon was a fool. The rich man was a fool. Judas was a fool.
Anyone who rejects the salvation there is in Jesus Christ, is the biggest fool in the world.
I used to be a fool.
I used to play in sin.
I used to neglect the House of God.
I used to live in rebellion.
But guess what?
I wised up, I found that living for the devil was a lost cause.
I found that living for Jesus was everything.
When the voice of wisdom no longer cries in the streets of America, and around the world, all hope will be gone.
The church will be gone!
Hell is the place for fools, it is fools paradise.
Are you a fool?
We can't come to know truth, the divine wisdom of God, until we acknowledge we are in sin,
and accept the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ!
We have a resident teacher of Truth to enlighten us about essential spiritual truths. The Holy Spirit takes God's Word, the Word He has revealed and inspired, and illuminates it for those in whom He dwells. You then can rightly appraise the Word, but only when you rely on God, the Giver of the Word.
If the human wisdom of this world had any worthy signification contribution to real wisdom, would they have crucified the only man that has ever walked this earth who does?
When we read and study the Holy Scriptures, we have the "mind of Christ", wisdom revealed.
It's Author and its Authenticity is guaranteed, and it's accuracy is therefore guaranteed.
We must take it to the streets, we must
Establish them into churches.
Extend the church to the unreached.
God knows that someone reading or hearing this message, needs to rise above their current situation, by submitting their life, your struggle to Jesus Christ, today!
He wants YOU to be included into His family!
And now may the Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
Now and forever, in Jesus' name
