12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And I find knowledge and discretion. 13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride, arrogance, the evil way, And the perverted mouth, I hate. 14 Advice is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine.
The wisdom of God, should teach His children, hate or evil of any kind should not be practiced or tolerated, Most churches love to see new faces to visitors that walking in the door, doesn’t matter if it is a family of five, a couple or just one individual. How much evil or perverse those the Lord really love, absolute none whatsoever, but Christians even myself will see it, do and even live it. Perversion is all around us, young and older people are more open to any sexual lifestyle, they want and some churches of God are allowing it. Normally man and women wanted relationship with the opposite sex, as minds flexible people believe, someone should love whoever or whatever the gender they desire, that is why heterosexuals’, homosexual, and pansexual/omnisexual relationship are now normal. Entertainment is more focus perversion, music and films alike. My niece is like many young people who use Tik Tok, it’s a website where members can record themselves in short videos and they can be as silly or serious as they like. Most are preselected music, is very perverse, where the lyric about, the sex the artist seeks, or how they they perform, or the lyric are of how much wealth, cars or bling bling they possess. Truth and justice are perverted also, law and order isn’t 100% godly, but neither is revenge and seeking law and order for ourselves. The KKK, say the believe in God, they burn cross but yet they practice hate against non-white people. Black Lives Matter, want to end oppression so do I, equal love and respect should be given to all people. Many churches allow this kind of group to have meetings in a house of God, but their policies are not God like. All lives matter, and to pinpoint one race or gender over another is self-love, self-pride and the Lord is 100% against arrogance. The ancient Israelites were very self-loving , stiff-necked people, they believed the Lord was only their god, and had strong dis-like for non-Jewish people. When Jesus walked and preached the gospel, He would teach and heal anyone that met, Roman soldiers, a Samaritans woman, tax-collected who worked for the Roman empire. If you read and study the gospel of Matthew, Mark , Luke and John, Jesus received more hate and disrespect from arrogant religious leaders, then He those the Jews rejected. When respected by law and order, the Son of God, even with all authority, heals the ear of the guard who is arresting Him and tells Peter to put away his sword.
Matthew 26:52 Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword will perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?
Luke 22:49 When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” 50 And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus responded and said, “Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.
If you and I would use more of God’s loving wisdom, we would throw away all the evil practices, stop listening to what the world calls acceptable, and only do and live by God’s words, the church would gain more souls. We would be a true blessing to God, to others and eventually to ourselves. God bless you all, Jesus loves you and so do I, Samuel H.
1 Corinthians 1:21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than mankind, and the weakness of God is stronger than mankind. 26 For consider your calling, brothers and sisters, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;
