"Heavenly Wisdom"

“Heavenly Wisdom”


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 is using GOOD JUDGMENT that is based on KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE.  We gain WISDOM by interacting with situations, which gives us KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE in that particular situation, therefore, we KNOW something about the situation, and then gain WISDOM concerning it.  Knowing how to deal with it, and how to help others who might be facing the same or similar situations.


In this life we have two different forms of WISDOM.  We have the EARTHLY WISDOM, first of all, which usually harbors bitter envy and selfish ambition, and where there is envy and selfish ambition you will have disorder and every evil practice.  (VV 14, 16)


But the other form of WISDOM is HEAVENLY WISDOM, which offers us purity, WISDOM that is NOT tainted with EVIL practices and is HOLY and RIGHTEOUS.  Then we see that HEAVENLY WISDOM is peace-loving, it seeks to PRACTICE keeping peace among God’s Children.  It is free from SELFISH AMBITION, which can cause discord, and is UNSPIRITUAL, and even DEMONIC.  HEAVENLY WISDOM is considerate of others and their feelings, fears and frustrations, and not to CONDEMN, but to share your KNOWLEDGE of the situation they might be in.  HEAVENLY WISDOM is submissive, it is submissive to the WILL and WISDOM of God’s Holy Spirit.  HEAVENLY WISDOM is full of mercy and good fruit, where there is MERCY there will be GOOD FRUIT, for example, God’s MERCY brings the GOOD FRUIT of SALVATION.  So we too must practice MERCY, towards others that they will be able to come to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of Jesus Christ.   HEAVENLY WISDOM is also impartial and sincere.  It does not make differences, by being partial to one over another, and it is sincere, it is HONEST and not trying to fool others.  HEAVENLY WISDOM is yours for the asking, but ONLY if you are a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD.


In order to obtain HEAVENLY WISDOM, you must FIRST, come to God, by TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO God 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 then SEEK His HEAVENLY WISDOM.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
