Wisdom: The Master and Director of the Work!
"Wisdom : The Master and Director of the
1 DOES NOT skillful and godly
Wisdom cry out, and understanding raise her voice [in contrast to the loose
Anything that draws you away from Him or from the position of His Rest- (IE:
Temptation - Test - Trial)
*Matthew 18:7 Woe to the world for such temptations to
sin and influences to do wrong! It is necessary that temptations come, but woe
to the person on whose account or by whom the temptation comes!
*Luke 11:4 And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves
also forgive everyone who is indebted to us [who has offended us or done us
wrong]. And bring us not into temptation but rescue us from evil.
2 On the top of the heights
beside the way, where the paths meet, stands Wisdom [skillful and godly]; 3 At
the gates at the entrance of the town, at the coming in at the doors, she cries
out: 4 To you, O men, I call, and my voice is directed to the sons of men. 5 O
you simple and thoughtless ones, understand prudence; you [self-confident]
fools, be of an understanding heart.
*Job 17:4 But their hearts [Lord] You have closed to
understanding; therefore You will not let them triumph [by giving them a
verdict against me].
*Proverbs 2:1 MY SON, if you will receive my words and
treasure up my commandments within you, 2 Making your ear attentive to skillful
and godly Wisdom and inclining and directing your heart and mind to
understanding [applying all your powers to the quest for it];
*Proverbs 20:5 Counsel in the heart of man is like
water in a deep well, but a man of understanding draws it out.
6 Hear, for I will speak
excellent and princely things; and the opening of my lips shall be for right
things. 7 For my mouth shall utter truth, and wrongdoing is detestable and
loathsome to my lips. 8 All the words of my mouth are righteous (upright and in
right standing with God); there is nothing contrary to truth or crooked in
them. 9 They are all plain to him who understands [and opens his heart], and
right to those who find knowledge [and live by it].
*Mark 12:29 Jesus answered, The first and principal one
of all commands is: Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord; 30 And you
shall love the Lord your God out of and with your whole heart and out of and
with all your soul (your life) and out of and with all your mind (with your
faculty of thought and your moral understanding) and out of and with all your
strength. This is the first and principal commandment. 31 The second is like it
and is this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other
commandment greater than these.32 And
the scribe said to Him, Excellently and fitly and admirably answered, Teacher!
You have said truly that He is One, and there is no other but Him; 33 And to
love Him out of and with all the heart and with all the understanding [with the
faculty of quick apprehension and intelligence and keenness of discernment] and
with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than
all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. [I Sam. 15:22; Hos. 6:6; Mic.
6:6-8; Heb. 10:8.] 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered intelligently
(discreetly and having his wits about him), He said to him, You are not far
from the kingdom
10 Receive my instruction in
preference to [striving for] silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, 11
For skillful and godly Wisdom is better than rubies or pearls, and all the
things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. 12 I, Wisdom [from
God], make prudence my dwelling, and I find out knowledge and discretion. 13
The reverent fear and worshipful awe of the Lord [includes] the hatred of evil;
pride, arrogance, the evil way, and perverted and twisted speech I hate.
*Proverbs 5:2 That you may exercise proper
discrimination and discretion and your lips may guard and keep knowledge and
the wise answer [to temptation].
*Luke 18:7 Woe to the world for such temptations to sin
and influences to do wrong! It is necessary that temptations come, but woe to
the person on whose account or by whom the temptation comes!
14 I have counsel and sound
knowledge, I have understanding, I have might and power. 15 By me kings reign
and rulers decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the
judges and governors of the earth. 17 I love those who love me, and those who
seek me early and diligently shall find me. 18 Riches and honor are with me,
enduring wealth and righteousness (uprightness in every area and relation, and
right standing with God). 19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than refined
gold, and my increase than choice silver.
Fruit:(We are also known by our
fruit!) Whatever comes out of our mouth is in our heart!
James 3:13 Who is there among you who is wise and
intelligent? Then let him by his noble living show forth his [good] works with
the [unobtrusive] humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom.14
But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish
ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance
of and false to the Truth.15 This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes
down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish
(demoniacal). 16 For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry
and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony,
rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices. 17 But the wisdom from
above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous
(considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion
and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and
unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity). 18 And the harvest
of righteousness (of conformity to God's will in thought and deed) is [the
fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in
themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and
harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from
fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].
*1 Peter 4:8 Above all things have intense and
unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives
and disregards the offenses of others].
*James 5:16 Confess to one another therefore your
faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also]
for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of
mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man
makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
20 I [Wisdom] walk in the way
of righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation), in
the midst of the paths of justice, 21 That I may cause those who love me to
inherit [true] riches and that I may fill their treasuries. 30 Then I [Wisdom]
was beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His
delight, rejoicing before Him always, 31 Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and
delighting in the sons of men. 32 Now therefore listen to me, O you sons; for
blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who keep my ways.33 Hear instruction and be wise, and do not
refuse or neglect it. 34 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man
who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my
doors. 35 For whoever finds me [Wisdom] finds life and draws forth and obtains
favor from the Lord. 36 But he who misses me or sins against me wrongs and
injures himself; all who hate me love and court death.
He is A Master and Director of the Work!
On 01-01-2013, I awoke to a vision of a sword hovering in the air. It was
being dipped into different things. The first thing it was dipped into was a
vat of sand. The next was a container of wool. The third was a vessel of a
silvery liquid. Over and over, the sword was dipped into each thing, one at a
time, and repeated many times in it's circuit of sand, wool, and oil. Then the
final thing was the sword was then placed within the folds of a beautiful
garment that hung in the air nearby.
Then the Lord spoke:
I am tempering you.
I am rendering you impervious to cracks, to
fractures, to schisms, and to divisions. I am hardening you to temptations and
to demonic assaults.
I am making you inflexible to compromise and to
mixture of any kind.
I am making you rigidly righteous, and strong in
your faith in Me, so that I can wield you fully.
I am polishing the
last of the smudges in your personality that mar My image from being fully
I want you to gleam with Me in a new sensitivity and reveal a brighter
countenance of Me.
I am enfolding you into each other, My Robe, My
Church, and I am adding into your layers a new corporate strength. I have tempered you
each individually, now I will form you corporately into a formidable weapon for
This is the Year 2013, when I will form, I will assemble anew, and bring
My End Time Army into full battle view.
Matthew 26:41 All of you must keep awake (give strict
attention, be cautious and active) and watch and pray, that you may not come
into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Luke 8:13 And those upon the rock [are the people]
who, when they hear [the Word], receive and welcome it with joy; but these have
no root. They believe for a while, and in time of trial and temptation fall
away (withdraw and stand aloof).
Psalms 46:1 GOD IS our Refuge
and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and
well-proved help in trouble.
Psalms 105:4 Seek, inquire of and for the Lord, and
crave Him and His strength (His might and inflexibility to temptation); seek
and require His face and His presence [continually] evermore.
Psalms 138:3 In the day when I called, You answered
me; and You strengthened me with strength (might and inflexibility to
temptation) in my inner self.
1 Corinthians 10:13 For no temptation (no trial
regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has
overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no
temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is
not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can
bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and
He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your
ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation
He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing
place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it
James 1:12 Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man
who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has
stood the test and been approved, he will receive [the victor's] crown of life
which God has promised to those who love Him.
1 Peter 1:5 Who are being guarded (garrisoned) by
God's power through [your] faith [till you fully inherit that final] salvation
that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. 6 [You should] be
exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be
distressed by trials and suffer temptations, 7 So that [the genuineness] of
your faith may be tested, [your faith] which is infinitely more precious than
the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your
faith is intended] to redound to [your] praise and glory and honor when Jesus
Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed.
Romans 8:6 Now the
mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death
[death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and
hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both
now and forever].
Philippians 4:7 And
God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its
salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content
with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all
understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in
* God has sound wisdom for you!
* God has clear direction for
* God has understanding of what
to do next.
* God has a deep well of
insight to draw upon from within your heart.
