“ WARNING: Two Kinds of Wisdom”
…If you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. 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 3:14-17
The United States of America will be holding the primaries of voting for elected officials of this GREAT nation. A number of different states will be doing this on the 1st of March, which many have dubbed “Super Tuesday.” We will be asked to vote for those who, we feel to be QUALIFIED, with TRUSTWORTHINESS, INTEGRITY, and WISDOM. I think these verses can help those of us who will be casting votes. They are a GOOD litmus test for the candidates, in order for us to make the PROPER DECISION. This is a CRITICAL and SERIOUS time for this nation.
We have some that are in the running for the HIGHEST office in the land, the next LEADER of the free world. Some of the attributes they SHOULD NOT possess are: BITTER ENVY, SELFISH AMBITION, BOASTFULNESS, and UNTRUTHFULNESS. I venture to sadly say that we do have a few of those candidates who fall into this category, running for office, in BOTH parties.
Do we want a leader, who, possesses ENVY and SELFISH AMBITION in the position of the LEADER of the FREE WORLD? To lead our own nation? To set the FUTURE for our children and grand-children? Are we willing to put them at RISK?
The Scriptures PLAINLY tell us that those who have ENVY and SELFISH AMBITION receives this kind of “WISDOM” NOT from heaven, but it is EARTHLY, UNSPIRITUAL, and DEMONIC. Where you have ENVY and SELFISH AMBITION, you find DISORDER, and EVERY EVIL PRACTICE there is to accomplish whatever this kind of person desires. They are only really concerned about feeding their OWN SELFISH AMBITION at ANY COST. And then they BOAST about their UNDERHANDED SCHEMES. Oh what a tangled web they weave.
But the WISDOM that comes from Heaven is first PURE; then PEACE-LOVING, CONSIDERATE, SUBMISSIVE, FULL OF MERCY and GOOD FRUIT, IMPARTIAL and SINCERE. The individual who possess these attributes are: TRUSTWORTHY, CONSIDERATE, of STRONG MORAL IDEALS, TRUTHFUL and will work at bringing PEACE and SECURITY to our Land. They will set the foundation for the kind of Nation we will leave our children and grand-children. It is a very SERIOUS and IMPORTANT time, and we MUST weigh the possibilities of EACH CANDIDATE. The MOST IMPORTANT thing a TRUE BELIEVER should do is to SEEK the WISDOM of the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD and ask for GUIDANCE before we vote.
If you are NOT a TRUE BELIEVER, and have NOT given your HEART and LIFE over to God, then you probably are MORE concerned with what YOU can gain, you possess ENVY and SELFISH AMBITION, which is EARTHLY, UNSPIRITUAL, and DEMONIC. And you are living with DISORDER and EVILNESS, and your destination is HELL, unless your CHANGE, you do that by: CONFESSING your sins to God, 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 obtain WISDOM that is; PURE, PEACE-LOVING, CONSIDERATE, SUBMISSIVE, MERCIFUL, IMPARTIAL and SINCERE, and change your destination to HEAVEN. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
