Bible: Wisdom 101

by Ruth Greene

Bible PerspectiveYHWH the Father wants His people to be wise. In the Bible, two kinds of people are generally portrayed in two contrasting ways of life: the fool as the wicked, stubborn person that hates or ignores Elohim’s Word and the wise person that seeks to know YHWH and love Him. When you choose Father YHWH’s track of righteousness, He grants you His wisdom and His Spirit. He gave you His Word, in the Bible, which leads you to righteousness in His eyes. This foundation provides the way to have better relationships in life and in making decisions grounded in His righteousness. (James 1:5, 3:17; Ephesians 5:15-17; Colossians 2:8; 2 Timothy 2:7; Proverbs 3:13-18, 10:23, 12:15, 18:15; 24:3-7)

Scripture gives sound advice for open-hearted disciples of Messiah in developing personal relationships: beginning with friends, family and co-workers. In every relationship, disciples are to show love, dedication and reflect YHWH’s standards. (Matthew 18:2-4, 23:12; Philippians 2:3-11; 1 Peter 5:6) Over time, you are able to build a personal relationship with your Heavenly Father. It is important to learn to relate to other people through consistency, tact and discipline that is reflected in scripture. This is especially important within the family. (Matthew 18:19-22; John 15:12-17; Ephesians 5:21; Genesis 2:24) If you don’t learn to use YHWH’s wisdom in relationship with His righteousness, all of your relationships suffer. You risk becoming a rebel when you ignore or stray from what you know, including your personal stand with Him. (Galatians 1:10; Colossians 3:2; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 19-20; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:16, 8:5; “Family Stress Affects Generations“; “Breaking the Hold of Stress“)

shouting the WordWhat you say shows your true attitude and how you relate to others. How you talk tells others what you are really like as much as what you say. Your speech is a test of how wise you have grown, how spiritually mature you are. (John 14:15-17, 26; James 1:22-25; Hebrews 6:1-20; 1 Peter 2:2) To be wise in speech, a Christian needs what is known as self-control, what eventually becomes healthy conditioning of your heart through the Holy Spirit. From a pure heart issues words that are honest and well-chosen. (Matthew 5:8; Philippians 2:14-15, 4:8-9; Colossians 3:10, 23; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:14-19)

comfort zoneWhen you have truly given control of your life to YHWH, He ultimately controls the final outcome of all you do. This is through your willingness and obedience which are a reflection of your love, proving your trust. Those that love Him carry out an important spiritual work by spreading the knowledge of YHWH. Father Elohim’s purpose requires diligence and a measure of discipline over laziness and bearing the fruit of the world. (Matthew 7:24-26, 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 14:27; Acts 1:8; 2 Timothy 2:15; Titus 1:9; “A Hidden Lifestyle Message from Messiah“; “Christian: Your Basis of Trust“)

Because YHWH constantly evaluates how you live in the present, it is important to be full of His purpose. Self-satisfaction and selfishness fight YHWH’s righteousness in you. When you fail, He is willing to pick you up when you are willing. He will not forsake you when you don’t forsake Him. (Romans 1:28; Psalm 37:23-25) Knowing your Father is the key to wisdom.

To be a success in YHWH’s eyes is success into His Kingdom. Everything else is perishable. Your resources, time and talents come from your Father. Disciples of the Messiah must use time wisely since YHWH’s wisdom is for everyone that is willing to listen. Without exception, everyone can benefit by integrating Elohim’s Word into their personal life. Whether you choose YHWH’s wisdom or the wisdom of the world is up to you. (Proverbs 1:1-9, 9:18, 10:1, 24:34, 25:1, 31:31; “Temptations & Tough Choices“; “The Wheels of Ezekiel“; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
