Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms

by John and Ruth Greene

the BibleAs human beings, even experts are mere students of life. We learn from what we see around us through observation. Even so, most people rely on what they are told by someone who claims to know. Who do you listen to and what are they telling you? Why are telling you? Politicians and leaders of various causes have all kinds of ideas that they would like to sell you as absolute truth. The real problem of an incorrect perspective is that you can base an entire line of faulty thinking and principles based on an incorrect foundation. Admittedly, this happens every day, as the knowledge of man portrays itself as truth that everyone can count on. In the scientific world, carbon dating is just one of the most nefarious examples. You can derive any date you please depending on the assumptions that you make about the past. That is a commonly overlooked flaw of science that is hardly scientific at all. Like the theory of evolution and a host of other elements of science, even the experts are making assumptions that they insist is fact. The government of man typically operates in the same way, portraying themselves as experts of some kind of knowledge, as the opposite of illegal extremes. As a whole, mankind is steeped in magical and mystical thinking, what the world of science calls faith. (“The Bible & Higher Authority“; “Understanding Sin“)

US flagMagical thinking invests support in special powers through symbols and orders of man, such as nationalism, philosophy and elements of leadership. Mystical thinking is said to be an awareness that results in rituals and superstition. These attributes are often mistakenly attributed to YHWH, and if not to Him, to some other power. Religious, governmental and scientific mysticism has been and continues to be full of great misconceptions, a grand tool of deception. With today’s worldview of “truth or dare,” there is often little agreement about what is real. Experts can even promote a story that destroys lives and families in the name of justice and morality. Man’s system of reason is a counterfeit set of scales, often set up in opposition to YHWH, even though this may not be apparent to many. To solve its accountability problem, the world strips YHWH of His name and His power, putting the ‘God of the Bible’ into the same pantheon as any other god that has been created or imagined through the history of mankind. The Jews were tricked into this thinking as have been Christians. Man has created many gods through the ages. Today, the gods of commerce, banking, politics and their interpretations rule the world that we live in. (“Prophecy News & International Power Mongers“; “What’s Coming After Globalism: Expanding Rule & Acceptance: United Nations Expands Rule & Acceptance“; “Continuation of Global Empires Until The End“; “The Beast Seduction of the Masses“; “Modern Mammon; Power of the Fractional Reserve“)

“To know wisdom and instruction, to understand the words of understanding; to seize the instruction of consideration, justice, judgment and uprightness; to give discretion to those easily seduced, to the immature, the knowledge of evil plans. The wise will hear and increase learning, his understanding will buy wise counsel. – Proverbs 1:2-5, direct translation

What kind of knowledge is the writer of Proverbs talking about? In order to find out, we must read on.

“Understanding a parable and its meaning is the work of the wise and their dark philosophies. The reverence of YHWH is the principal of knowledge. The perverse despise the instruction of wisdom.” – Proverbs 1:6-7, direct translation

global commerceWe are to trade or exchange ideas of past instruction with the instruction of YHWH, in essence buying wise counsel of what Christians know as the Holy Spirit. Here in Hebrew, perversity is officially linked to foolishness as the danger that it is; a death-dealing poison of the soul. The writer clearly counters the evil of worldly knowledge with that of the Divine. Just as Yahshua [Jesus] said in Matthew 6, YHWH is first above all. (“The Wisdom of Proverbs“; “Wisdom of YHWH, Wisdom of Man“)

justice of manFather YHWH’s wisdom cries out, but is most often ignored for the dark thinking of man’s mysteries of justice. As anyone knows, one that claims to know everything is quite annoying. A person that has a dogmatic opinion about everything is closed to anything outside of their own knowledge. They are full of themselves. They resent discipline (correction or instruction according to scripture) and refuse to learn from it. This is the mindset of perversity says scripture. Instead, as disciples of the Messiah, we must be open to the advice of correction, developing the discernment to make decisions according to YHWH’s standards instead of the morality of men. A friend that gives valuable insight and counsel is especially valuable. Today, the Holy Spirit is the corrector of humility for those that love Him. Only YHWH knows it all. (“Humility: Do You Need It“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “Seeking a New Spirit“)

In our age of information, knowledge is plentiful. In comparison, the true wisdom of YHWH Elohim is scarce. The foundation of your life is based on one of two kingdoms. You honor YHWH or you honor men. You live what you believe. It is essential to know YHWH’s Word to live it, to prepare the soil of your heart. This isn’t about perfection, but about seeking Elohim’s Will and purpose through Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah. (“Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “A Hidden Lifestyle Message from Messiah“; “Life Healing & Belief“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“)

“Son, hear the instruction (correction) of your father, do not cast off the precepts of your mother for these are a wreath of favor to your head and chains about your neck.” – Proverbs 1:8-9, NKJV

love of God in the familyTo be brought up by your parents with YHWH’s standard of love through His truth is as an ornament around your neck and a garland on your head, one that will win the race of salvation. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27; Philippians 2:16; Galatians 5:7; 2 Peter 1:5-11; ; Hebrews 12:1-3; Isaiah 45:22) In this way, the principles of YHWH are grounded in a strong family life. Few of us have had the benefit of this kind of upbringing, but growing in the knowledge of what Yahshua [Jesus] taught, scriptural correction and the continued correction of the Spirit is more vital, since YHWH is the Father of those that love and obey Him. Actions speak louder than words, a reality that is especially evident at home. Children learn their values and priorities by looking at their parents and how they react every day. When parents exhibit a deep reverence for and dependence on YHWH, children are able to better live these attributes throughout their lives. Otherwise, we must learn through our own trials of witness. (“Modern Society & Obsolete Marriage“; “Divorce: Modern Family & the Authority of Law“)

bible-studyThis involves Bible study and discussing what is learned instead of getting involved in sin and iniquity of the past, a quick route to corruption and death. Sin and iniquity cause our base appetites to become personal masters into destruction. Even those that profess faith in YHWH Elohim are ensnared by the world through short-range pleasures, making these pleasures idols in the face of YHWH. For example, many important people want to entice you to engage in activities that are not in the interest of YHWH’s Kingdom. They will profess your best interests and lay out a moral plan for your life which builds up their way of life. (“Disciple: The Pattern of Your Life“; “Video: What Is Idolatry?“; “Healing Wounds That People Can’t See“; “Financial Usury & Bible Truth: Lending, Giving & Borrowing“)

“Son, when sinners (criminals) try to seduce you, do not consent. When they boast, ‘Come near, ambush for blood to ensnare the innocent for our advantage. Cover their life as the grave, make those without spot go into the cistern. We will acquire wealthy reputation, fill our palaces with spoil. Cast your lot among us as all that are united for one purpose.’ Son, do not walk along with them, restrain your foot from that track because a foot that runs to evil is in a hurry to shed sacrificial blood. Because, for nothing the snare is cast in the face of all that wear My prayer covering. They ambush for blood to ensnare innocent souls! Thus is the caravan of all that plunder for profit, seizing the very life of My people.“ – Proverbs 1:10-19, direct translation

discern both good and evilGenuine Christians can’t be friendly to sin or the ‘commerce of sin,’ open to developing serious character flaws while expecting their personal life and standing before YHWH to be unaffected. Yet, how easily are we fooled when we walk in deception, believing the ways of the world to be YHWH’s ways! What is profane is made ‘godly’ in the name of all that is good and right! We (as the authors) have been down this road, believing what was taught as helpful and good, even as directly from YHWH Himself until it was revealed to be otherwise! (Proverbs 1:22) The Almighty has another way that isn’t of the world, this dark kingdom that we live in now. The world around you doesn’t consider such things beyond what is beneficial and expedient to the moment. ‘Ill gotten gain’ is a sure trap which starts out with what seems to be a ‘good’ idea. Even the smallest desires can become an all-consuming obsession, an advertisement that leads only to destruction. We need Father YHWH’s wisdom to discern the greed within desires that are common to men and women. (“Everyone Answers to YHWH“; “Freedom in Messiah Despite the World“; “666-Chi Xi Stigma“; “Building a Counterfeit Kingdom“; “The Man of Lawlessness“; “The Beast System: The Image & Mark“; “Do You Live a Lifestyle of Greed?“)

love of wealth - mammonUnhappily, to some degree the common knowledge of scripture has been tainted by greed and the lust for power. Constantine swore to remove all traces of old Judaism from scripture, insuring that references to Judaism were changed. He changed the natural order of scripture. In this case, the Jewish prayer garment was changed to a bird’s wing. Proverbs 1:17 is commonly translated as “Surely, in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.” This belies the truth of what is being said here. The snare is cast for all disciples of the Messiah, those that wear YHWH’s prayer shawl, His prayer covering, His protection, literally the ‘masters of His cloth.’ Elohim’s people are threatened, not a nameless bird or prey. Wicked criminals seek to ensnare the innocent of YHWH for personal advantage. They have sought to ensnare the beloved of YHWH in different ways throughout history. In the same light, today the leadership and authority of the world seeks to ensnare blameless souls of Elohim’s people! (“Mind Control of the Beast“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“; Ezekiel 18:19-32)

“Wisdom shouts to separate you, given voice in broad streets, calling out and shaking with a great sound, an opening in the gates of a guarded city that speak this appointment: ‘How long you seduced ones will you love foolishness?’ (Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 8:16-18) The scoffers love derision, fools that hate knowledge.“ – Proverbs 1:19-22, direct translation

light of the lampToday, the Holy Spirit is the Counselor of every disciple. Instead of self-sufficient pride that the world holds to, disciples learn to lean on YHWH and His provisions through the sacrifice of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah. Pride is considering self more important than the purpose of Father YHWH. When you don’t need YHWH, the sacrifice of Yahshua [Jesus] or the operation of the Holy Spirit, you have fallen into disastrous pride. (Proverbs 1:31-32) The ‘fruit’ of your ‘way’ is the consequence of what you actually experience in life due to the decisions and choices that you make. The dark kingdom (the kingdom of man) seeks you as “ill gotten gain,” to buy your soul, to be your source of significance. When faced with choosing ‘godly wisdom’ or persisting in rebellion to YHWH, many decide to go it alone, destroying themselves through willful disobedience. We do well not to ignore YHWH’s advice, even when it might be painful. Assuredly, YHWH’s advice, when obeyed, keeps all of us from greater pain and final destruction through rebellion. In those days of the Psalmist, many had turned aside, selling their souls to the hunters of the world that sought their own advantage. They became corrupted, seeking the same advantage as the hunters of their day. (Isaiah 44:3, 63:10-11; Psalm 51:10-12, 143:10; Joel 2:28; “Understanding Real Prosperity“)

“Repent at My correction; see I will pour My Spirit (ruach) that makes known my commandments. You refused to pay attention to My call. I have spread out My hand that no man regarded. You have refused all My counsel. You do not consent to My correction. I then, will laugh at your destruction. Your destruction comes as a storm. Tribulation and distress comes against you. When they call out there will be no answer. They will seek, but will not find because they were enemies to knowledge by not selecting the reverence of YHWH. They would not consent to any of my counsel and scorned all of my correction. They will eat the fruit of their way, filled with their many purposes. Because of the backsliding of the foolish will destroy them. The security of fools will destroy them. Discern and dwell in refuge, in peace from fear of evil.“ – Psalm 1:23-33, direct translation

sharing the BibleProverbs does not open with a casual discourse to wisdom as many believe as they casually read their Bible. It was made to look that way by early translators (through the order of the Roman Catholic Church) that sought to remove the cutting edge of scripture. Time hasn’t changed some of these subtle variations. Proverbs opens, making a separation between the wisdom of the world that seeks its own advantage and the eternal wisdom of YHWH. When you read this (Proverbs 1) in Hebrew, it has the sound of YHWH’s revealing in the Book of Revelation. Even in the day of Solomon, YHWH was calling His people to Himself, reproving His people while commanding them to return to Him. Those that listened would be saved! Proverbs chapter 2 continues with what YHWH’s words of wisdom speak, advising those that love Him to keep His commandments close in the soil of understanding hearts. This is because all knowledge does not come from the Father, but can easily come from another source. Only you choose to sell your soul ‘to the company store.” Who do you belong to? All of YHWH’s people require discernment, the knowledge of scripture, the aid of the Holy Spirit and much prayer. (Matthew 13:1-58; Luke 8:11-15; Revelation 18; “Why are the Nations So Messed Up“; “The Supranational Babylon“; “The Role of Authority in Life“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“; “Spiritual Fruit & Renewing the Mind“)

“And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Because her sins have piled up to reach the heaven, and Elohim has remembered her unrighteousnesses. Render to her as she indeed did render, and repay her double according to her works. In the cup which she has mixed, mix for her double.” – Revelation 18:4-6, ISR98

“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.
