“Wisdom from Heaven”
But the wisdom that comes from Heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17
Wisdom: Good judgment, based on knowledge. The WISDOM from Heaven is UNLIKE the WISDOM form the world. WISDOM from Heaven, first of all is PURE; unspoiled, holy, and flawless. It is PEACE-LOVING; it does NOT produce conflict or division, but brings PEACE and promotes PEACE. It is CONSIDERATE; showing regard for others, thoughtful. It is SUBMISSIVE; obedient to God’s WISDOM and LAWS. It is MERCIFUL; kind and compassionate. It is FRUITFUL; producing GOOD fruit, or GOOD WORKS. It Is IMPARTIAL; does NOT favor one side over another, unbiased. It is SINCERE; truthful, and honest, genuine, real. These are the attributes of WISDOM from Heaven.
WISDOM from the world is DRASTICALLY different from the WISDOM from Heaven. The WISDOM from the world is: BITTER, ENVIOUS, SELFISH, CONTROLLING, CORRUPT. It PROMOTES, and PRODUCES conflicts, not only between NATIONS, but in BUSINESSES, LEGAL AFFAIRS, and even in FAMILIES. WORLDLY WISDOM works AGAINST the WISDOM from HEAVEN. It can be RUTHLESS and UNMERCIFUL. There is a cliché that says: “it’s a dog eat dog world, out there.” And that sums it up fairly ACCURATELY. The worldly WISDOM demeans and tries to undermine the WISDOM of God. It works AGAINST the LAWS of God, and is BIASED to the LAWS of mankind. Many times the WISDOM of the world is DISHONEST, UNTRUTHFUL, UNLAWFUL, and PRODUCING works of DEPRVITY, WICKEDNESS, HATE, DISCORD, and DESPAIR.
Which WISDOM are you RECEIVING? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are RECEIVING the WISDOM of the WORLD, and you are headed for an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of UNENDING torment, torture, heartache, pain, agony, and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE. However, God is giving you the opportunity NOW to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING, your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and RECEIVE WISDOM from Heaven, and an ETERNITY in Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
