We all understand the importance of receiving God’s Message from the scriptures. Today we revisit our bible to cover the salient points of the wisdom that God shares with us.
Understanding God’s Word provides us with wisdom, wisdom that is not available from any other source. Today we are going to ramble through the Old and the New Testament just to get a feeling for the strength that wisdom provides. The Word contains substance; it gives strength as Luke 4:32 KJV illustrates the power of God’s Word:
And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.
God’s Word is pure power and by following His Word we share His power. The doctrine of Christ provides the strength we need to face the temptations of these end times.
His word is powerful and complete as God tell us everything; He leaves nothing out as scripture tells His story from beginning to end. Mark 13:23 KJV points this out to us:
But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
Through the apostles and the prophets we are told the complete story of God, His family and everyone they come in contact with. Reading with understanding helps learn more about the responsibility we share as a member of His family.
Our review takes us to Proverbs 1:2-4 KJV where God makes the connection between His Word and wisdom:
 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
We perceive His word to receive it; justice is taught and equity is provided as we learn to exercise discretion. Proverbs 11:9 KJV is a verse where God Illustrates that knowledge enables us to prevail:
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
Receiving His Word places us in the company of the “just” that God always delivers. A neighbor who listens to the unlearned will be destroyed, spiritually. Proverbs 18:15 KJV describes what a learned person does:
The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.
This knowledge that we “seeketh” and “getteth” only comes from God’s Word and this explains the reason that your bible is the best selling book ever published; it is not wise to seek wisdom elsewhere.
