I have given these words and the definitions to help understand better the meaning of these scriptures and help to give a clearer view of what this message is about.
Job 28:6-11 Man with his ingenuity has earthed the treasures of the earth, but he cannot find wisdom (v.12-14) but where can wisdom be found? Where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living. The deep says, it is not in me, and the sea says, it is not in me. (Job 20) Where than does wisdom come from? Where is the place of understanding? Job 23-...God understands its way; and He knows its place. (24) For He looks to the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. (25) When He imparted weight to the wind and melted out the waters (26) When He set a limit for the rain,
(28:6-11) Man with his ingenuity has unearthed the treasures of the earth, but he cannot find wisdom (28) and to man He said, behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. (28:28)- True wisdom is fearing (showing holy respect and reverence for) God and shunning all evil.
Ecclesiastes 1:12-18 I, the preacher, have been king over Israel in Jerusalem. (13) and I set my mind to seek and explore wisdom concerning all that has been done under heaven. It is a grievous task which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. (14) I have seen all the works which have been done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and striving after the wind. (15) What is crooked cannot be straightened, and what is lacking cannot be counted. (17) and I set my mind to know wisdom and to know madness and folly; I realized that this also is striving after the wind. (18) because in much wisdom there is much grief; and increasing knowledge results in increasing pain.
Ecclesiastes 2:12-13 So I turned to consider wisdom, madness and folly, for what will man do who will come after the king except what has already been done? (13) and I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels the darkness.
The message in this is this, To know God and to have a personal relationship with Him is to acknowledge and to admit that God is real and is true. To have a personal relationship with God we have to have an acquaintance with God, an intimacy, more than just casual but well known. When we begin to know God we receive understanding in the things he reveals to us that other wise we would be blinded too. To seek God and to want more of God we receive knowledge. A range of information. As we are taught we learn to discern and know things more clearly thus then God helps us to have sound judgment in everything we do. The greatest is to receive wisdom.To fear the Lord in reverence and with respect. No longer are the things hidden in the darkness. Sometimes the the things God reveals to us is not at all what we might think thus it leaves us with having to make a choice that is not always an easy one to make. These decisions can sometimes be painful ones to have to make. We also receive a visual of the things to come and see people all around us that will not listen and they will die and many will go to hell. Have you ever been told or seen something you wish you had rather not known? Well, while knowing God is s great thing and respecting God is too, when we see people putting all their hope in money, houses, cars, drugs, alcohol,other people, we know these things are not going to last forever. The world around us can cause us much sorrow. Just as the scripture says, it's like striving after the wind. Here today and gone tomorrow. I hope this make sense. I tried really hard to put into words a message that would be helpful. To enlighten and give a new meaning to the very things that Solomon prayed for. I myself have prayed for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. I do not regret any thing that God has shown me no matter if it is something bad. I just have to keep in mind that God is greater than anything we might have to face and to love him is to trust him. One day all these things on earth will be gone. The ones that receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior will receive a new home that will be peaceful and eternal. This day is quickly approaching and not everyone believes it. That is the sad part. We must continue to pray for our nation, family, friends, and the things that are happening in many churches. God has had mercy and spared us all many times. For this I am blessed and so are you. God help us when He reveals things to us to show us what to do. Sometimes it may be to pray about a situation and then wait and see what God does. LETS ALL STAND TOGETHER AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD !
GREATER IS HE (Jesus) THAT IS IN US THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD !!!
UNITED WE STAND---DIVIDED WE FALL.

How can the Bible be considered proofI would say that 8 out of ten times when discussing proof of god with a theist, they quote the Bible. In my perspective, the Bible is the collection of claims about the christian god, not the evidence for it - and all claims require...

What shows that a person has wisdom?
by backporchstories 5 years ago
In the Bible, we are asked to not to seek knowledge but to trust in the Lord and then we will receive wisdom. I agree that life's challenges can lead to wisdom of the spirit, but does seeking out knowledge cloud our judgements or does it help us decide what to lend our faith to? Of...

Do Americans, in general, have a broad knowledge and understanding of other countries? It's not uncommon for Americans to be depicted in my media as being ignorant of the large land mass south of South East Asia. This large land mass is the largest island in the world and the smallest continent....
