Wisdom and truth related to each other

When we want to get wisdom we have to open our mind and be willing to learn things and broaden our horizon.

The best way to receive the necessary wisdom is to go back to the Source of life, to experience and listen to the Maker of all things His Words. He is The One Who is willing to listen to us and to give us advice. Most necessary advice He has already provided by His Holy Word, now available in many languages. People only have to search for God to get more from God. When going to look for Him one also can ask Him to open the eyes so that we would be able to understand more things.

From Scriptures, we come to learn that those willing to look for God got their prayers answered and came to see.

We also can learn that Jehovah God is no different than any other loving Father, in matters what He would give or not give to His children. He is even a better father than all fathers we can find in the world. It is by His Power that we can receive His Spirit to come to see more clearly and to come to understand the things of earth but also the things of heaven.

Let us not be guided by people who do not know the truth nor have enough wisdom to guide.

We may not forget that God has given His only begotten son as His spokesman who can lead people to God, having him as the way to life. The Truth and Wisdom come from Jesus his heavenly Father, the Only One true God.

“Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to the Jews, saying: “I am the Light of the world! The person who continues to follow me will never walk about in the Darkness, but will have the Light of the Life.”” (Joh 8:12 mhm)

“Jesus said to Thomas: “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one can approach the Father, if not through me.” (Joh 14:6 mhm)

“Then the Pneuma and the Bride say: “Come!” And let the one who hears say: “Come!” Let the one who thirsts come. Let the one who wants drink of the Water of Life as a free gift.” (Re 22:17 mhm)

“Because the wisdom of this present social order of humanity is foolishness to The God. For it has been written, “He is the One catching the wise in their craftiness.” (1Co 3:19 mhm)

“32 Now stopping before them, Jesus raised his voice to them and said, “What do you wish me to do?”33 The blind men said to Jesus, “Sir, open our eyes that we might see!”” (Mt 20:32-33 mhm)

“Now a certain woman named Lydia–a seller of purple from Thyatira and one who revered The God–kept listening. The Master opened wide her heart to pay attention to what Paul taught.” (Ac 16:14 mhm)

“Then Jesus began to open their minds to understand the Scriptures.” (Lu 24:45 mhm)

“For everyone asking receives, and the one seeking finds, and it will be opened to the one knocking.” (Lu 11:10 mhm)

“11 Which father among you whose son asks for a fish will give him a snake instead?12 Or if he asks for an egg, will the father give his son a scorpion?13 So, if you though being wicked realize how to give good gifts to your own children, how much more will the heavenly Father give holy Pneuma to those asking him!”14  Now when Jesus was expelling a mute demon, after the demon came out, the mute person began to speak and the crowds were astonished.” (Lu 11:11-14 mhm)

“However, whenever that Helper arrives–the Truthful Pneuma–he will guide you apostles into all the Truth, for he will not speak from himself, but everything he hears he will speak. Also, he will proclaim to you apostles future things.” (Joh 16:13 mhm)

“that they should continue to seek The God, if really, in fact, they might grope for Him and actually find him, though, in fact, He exists not a great distance from each one of us.” (Ac 17:27 mhm)

Words of Jesus preached with authority and conviction and fishes to fry

In the 1970ies our Baptist church went with a motor-coach to a huge stadium to hear the American preacher Billy Graham. It was incredible how he could move the auditory. The audience was incredibly enthusiastic and weeks after we were still talking about what we got to hear and how that man could burn fire in the hearts of the listeners.

The ALS-patient of the blog “Unshakable Hope”, also has the picture in his mind of thousands of people at a Billy Graham crusade walking down to the front after hearing the words of Jesus preached with authority and conviction. Bill Sweeney writes

Even two thousand years after Peter and Andrew dropped their fishing nets to follow Christ, His words still have the power to change the hearts and minds of millions of people. {I’ve Got Bigger Fish To Fry}

At the beginning of our contemporary era, it must have been very special around Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Palestine. That young man who could speak so well and who did such miraculous things, that many wondered how he could do that. Though he never claimed honour for himself. He knew very well that he could not do such things without his heavenly Father Who is much greater than him. He was happy that he received the power from God and that way could help people so that they too might come to know the Most High God.

“17  And it came to pass on one of those days, that he was teaching; and there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who were come out of every village of Galilee and Judaea and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was with him {1 } to heal. {1) Gr that he should heal; Many ancient authorities read that he should heal them }18 And behold, men bring on a bed a man that was palsied: and they sought to bring him in, and to lay him before him. 19 And not finding by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the housetop, and let him down through the tiles with his couch into the midst before Jesus. 20 And seeing their faith, he said, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this that speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? 22 But Jesus perceiving their {1 } reasonings, answered and said unto them, {2 } Why reason ye in your hearts? {1) Or questionings 2) Or What }23 Which is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath authority on earth to forgive sins (he said unto him that was palsied), I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go unto thy house. 25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his house, glorifying God.” (Lu 5:17-25 ASV)

“ Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.” (Joh 5:19 ASV)

“ Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.” (Joh 14:28 ASV)

Though Jesus came to bring the Truth, lots of people did not want to know it. Also today lots of people refuse to accept the biblical truth and do not see that Jesus is the way to God. Lots of people have made Jesus into their god instead of accepting him as the mediator between them and the Only One True God, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

“5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony to be borne in its own times;” (1Ti 2:5-6 ASV)

Living on this globe with all its difficulties and our daily pains and problems we can see the light in the darkness by the hope that man has offered the world. With the knowledge that no single man can do what Jesus did, none bringing salvation to us, we can share that hope with those around us, showing that all other sent ones from God, the prophets, witnessed about him who is the Lamb of God and as such suffered also a lot and even gave his life as a ransom for many (including us).

“ To him bear all the prophets witness, that through his name every one that believeth on him shall receive remission of sins.” (Ac 10:43 ASV)

“ And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, wherein we must be saved.” (Ac 4:12 ASV)

“ On the morrow he seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold, the Lamb of God, that {1 } taketh away the sin of the world! {1) Or beareth the sin } (Joh 1:29 ASV)

Bill Sweeney writes

Maybe we’re at our best, our most compassionate, our most empathetic and our kindest when we’re in the midst of these difficult times. Maybe this is when we are most like Christ. Yes, I am convinced that this is when we’re most like Christ.

Instead of trying to avoid thinking about these difficult times, I think we should purposely reflect on them and remember all of the things that seemed so trivial. Those things are still trivial in the good times. And, the things that still mattered to us in the hard times, are, I’m convinced, the very things that Christ wants us to build our lives around; these are the bigger fish.

Can you have joy and happiness building your life around these bigger fish?

Yes!

Through all of my really difficult times, especially battling ALS for the last 21+ years, I’ve discovered that building my life around these things that matter, these “bigger fish,” is the secret to true and lasting joy.


But, I still leave room for sports, mindless movies and other little fish.
