1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

 

Beloved, the Bible gives  us a wonderful revelation of our loving Father in heaven. He is God, full of wisdom and have done  and still doing all things by His unfathomable wisdom. See how the scriptures affirmed this.

Psalms 136:5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Proverbs 3:19. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Proverbs 2:6: For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Jeremiah 51:15. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

Daniel 2:20: Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

Romans 11:33. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Revelation 7:12. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

Beloved, there is a conspicuous  and remarkable difference between godly wisdom and that of earthly or sensual wisdom. See how the Bible describes wisdom given by God.

Job 28:28. And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Psalms 111:10. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

Proverbs 1:7. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

See what the Bible says about the wisdom of the world.

1 Corinthians 3:19. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

James 3:14-16. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

It is important at this point to examine yourself. Which kind of wisdom characterise your lifestyle?  Is it sensual and earthly or godly wisdom? Be very sincere. Let your discovery help you to pursue wisdom that comes from God, readily given by Him,  to His people from ages past. See what the Bible says.

Proverbs 3:13-22. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

Proverbs 4:5-7. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Beloved, see men of like passion like you in Bible days that received the wisdom of God.
1. Bezaleel

Exodus 31:1-5. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

2. Solomon

2 Chronicles 1:10-12 Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

3.,Joseph

Acts 7:10. And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.

4. Daniel

Daniel 2:23. I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.

Daniel 5:11. There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers;

5. Paul

2 Peter 3:15-16. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

See what the Bible says, you should do to acquire godly wisdom.

James 1:5: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

What are you waiting for? Reach out to God and acquire this wisdom, because, it is a guarantee for your eternal well being.

Psalms 90:12. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Dearly beloved, let this discovery excite you. Jesus Christ our Lord is  wisdom personified.

Proverbs 8:1: Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice.

Proverbs 8:5: O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.

Proverbs 8:11-30  For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:  While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment:  when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

He had the seven spirits of God, and the treasures of knowledge.

Isaiah 11:1-2. And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse,and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;.

Colossians 2:3: In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Right from childhood He began to grow in wisdom.

Luke 2:39-40. And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth. And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Luke 2:52. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

By the time He was thirty and began His ministry, everyone of His hearers were amazed  by His wisdom.

Matthew 13:54. And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Mark 6:1-2. And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him. And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?

Matthew 12:42. The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

Our Lord promised His followers of all ages and that includes you, this same dimension of wisdom. See it.

Luke 21:15: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

Just like our Lord amazed His hearers, so also His followers who received His wisdom.
Stephen.

Acts 6:10: And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.

Paul .

1 Corinthians 2:4-8   And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

No marvel the blessed Holy Spirit desirous of followers of Christ and that includes you  to desire this Christlike wisdom, emphasised the fact that Jesus our Lord is the wisdom of God.  See them affirmed severally .

1 Corinthians 1:21-24 ,For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 1:30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Dearly beloved, the beauty of wisdom of Christ to all His followers and you is that, it makes them wiser. You shall be wiser in Jesus name. So desire this Christlike wisdom for both your earthly and eternal wellbeing.

Matthew 7:24-27. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

SPECIAL REVELATIONS THROUGH PREACHING CHRIST BY BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU, THROUGH THE BOOK OF CORINTHIANS. 2. CHRIST THE  WISDOM OF GOD.
Friend,  both godly wisdom given by  God the Father to His children and the Christlike wisdom given by Christ to His followers are found on the pages of the scriptures.  God’s words in the Bible are the source of wisdom from both God the Father and Jesus our Lord.  Because this is so, what you do with this wisdom found  on the pages of the scriptures determines whether you shall be part of the dawning rapture or even live eternally with God in heaven.
Whenever anyone embrace  this  wisdom found on the pages of the scriptures,  it makes them wise and perfect.  You shall be perfected in Jesus name.

2 Timothy 3:15-17. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Friend  believers like you that choose to wholeheartedly obey the scriptures shall avert the looming judgment of God that shall be unleashed during the great tribulation that follows immediately after the rapture.  You shall not be part of it in Jesus name.

Revelation 13:16-18. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

So for your readiness anytime the rapture takes place to be guaranteed,  avoid earthly and sensual wisdom but embrace  wisdom from above,  coming from God the Father and Jesus Christ,  our Lord.

James 3:13-17. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Receive  grace to do so in Jesus name.
