Hidden secrets of wisdom and revelation,Wisdom is profitable
Many people are confused about knowledge and wisdom, some may say “what’s different between knowledge and wisdom”.
Humanity has accomplished much and has many clever sayings, such as “knowledge is power.”
Many seek for the knowledge of the world instead of divine wisdom.
But before we go further, what’s wisdom, how do I differentiate wisdom from knowledge?
These are questions people frequently ask, I’m going to throw some on both accordingly.
On my own perspective, knowledge are the things you know of, information, your awareness, consciousness.
According to Wikipedia online dictionary, “Knowledge is a familiarity, awareness, or understanding of someone or something, such as facts, information, descriptions, or skills, which is acquired through experience or education by perceiving, discovering, or learning”.
Yeah, knowledge are acquired by study, experience and so others, knowledge are obtainable or acquired.
Biblically, Knowledge also can be obtained by revelation, when I said revelation, I’m talking about the spirit of God, and in the form supernatural knowledge(mystery), knowledge can be granted unto those who feared the lord, and we have that in proverb 1:7.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction”.
Let’s consider Scripture by using Paul an example.
While Paul waited in Athens, There he saw he was standing amidst a group of pagan alters, (ACTS17:16) where people there worship different types of idols, but in (ACTS17:22) Paul stood up at Mars Hill and said: “Men of Athens, I see how very religious you are in every way”
Paul stood up at Mars Hill and said: “Men of Athens, I see how very religious you are in every way”
Acts17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious
What are we saying here, these people had knowledge but they were consumed with idolatry.
The Bible also noted that there were philosophers among them, their were men of knowledge in chapter 17:18, but Paul spoke to them at their own spiritual level.
With this understanding let’s now check what’s wisdom
WHAT IS WISDOM
God is wisdom, and he maketh wise those that him first.
Solomon was a man God so much endowed with wisdom, why?
Because Solomon seek for Wisdom after the heart of God.
Wisdom can be found anywhere God chooses, whether we hear it or not, it’s of God.
Men of wisdom can never be men of ordinary anywhere they’re.
But what’s really wisdom?
The dictionary define wisdom as “An element of personal character that enables one to distinguish the wise
from the unwise”.
It’s the ability to know and apply
Wisdom can never be hidden, or covered up, in proverb 1:20.
“Wisdom cries out in the street; she utters her voice in the city square”, just like we cry out in prayer for understanding, seeking it as treasure, but Scripture warns about misplacing our focus on knowledge,
Also Paul to the Corinthians in (1 corinthians13:2), “And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing”.
Just like we saw in the story of Paul about the people of Athens, He didn’t look down his nose and walk away. He didn’t say, ‘Your idols are outrageous and need to be destroyed’, but Paul was able to tell them some good news about his merciful, all-powerful God, using a sliver of wisdom he found among these knowledgeable Athenians,(Acts 17:23) He says, ” I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship, He is the One I will tell you about”.
With this understand, I hereby urge you to seek for wisdom and observe the fruit endured from wisdom because “Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly” (proverb 3:18).
NOTE: To access wisdom from God, you must fully repent and be born again.
