WISDOM, THE WOMB OF GOD
Romans 8:29-30 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
God wants us to be conformed into the image of the Son; that is Christ.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Galatians 4:19 My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
God’s plan for the church is that Christ must be formed in us. Paul said in Galatians 2:20; I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. The world is waiting for Christ to be seen. That’s our inheritance and our goal.
Adam was the son of God but he lost his sonship and became a son of the devil. He was more obedient to Satan than he was to God. Adam was the son of God, but sinned by being disobedient and he lost the glory that made him the son of God.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
The mystery that’s been hid through the ages has now been revealed and that is that Christ is in us which is the hope of getting back the glory. 1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: We’ve been born again by incorruptible seed by the Word of God. When I receive Christ, who is the Word of God, I’m born again. In the beginning was the Word, which is Christ Jesus, this Word was with God and this Word was God and everything that was made, was made by Him.
John 1:11-12 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
By becoming a child of God (Romans 8, Galatians 4), I am now an heir of God; my inheritance comes from my Godly Father and not so much from my earthly father. This means that I’ve joined another blood group, where I’m born from above – that is by the Word of God, which in this case is called “Incorruptible Seed”. The Word which is the seed, made me a child of the Most High God, but God wants me to grow from a child into a son. Being a son means to be matured or perfected. According to Romans 8:18-30 creation is subject to futility, not because it wants to be, but because of man and is waiting earnestly and with full expectation for the sons of God to be manifested, revealed and to come to the front. Creation must be brought out of darkness and bondage into the glory of the liberty of the sons of God. We have an inheritance that we have to get hold of and it must start manifesting on this earth.
Galatians 4:4-7 But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
There was a fullness of time that came, when the Son of God was revealed.
There’s another fullness of times just right ahead of us.
We are heirs of God and that fullness of times will be when we will walk as sons of God on the earth.
Ephesians 1:1-5 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
We’ve been adopted “for His good pleasure.” God wants to enjoy you and doesn’t want to sit with your sad face all day long. God wants something for pleasure, He made you, redeemed you, He washed you and He created you so that He can get some pleasure out of you. Don’t you like it when your children gives you pleasure? Don’t you feel sad when your children don’t give you pleasure? God is our heavenly Father and would like to enjoy His children.
Ephesians 1:6-10 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
You should read the whole book of Ephesians, Colossians and Philippians and see that He talks about the church in heaven and the church on earth.
Hebrews 12:18-24 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Right in the middle of the scripture we find the following: “We have come to the spirits of the saints made perfect, which are in heaven.” There are saints in heaven but God provided something for us in that they could not be made perfect without us (Hebrews 11:40). Hebrews 12:22 states that “they are now perfect” and this means that we have somehow been connected with them. God wants to gather this whole church in one body, called Christ. When this happens, God says that it is the second fullness of time and the whole creation will be affected. He will gather in one (that is in Christ) everything that is in heaven and everything that is on earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Those who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds, not those who are dead and gone! The term, ‘caught up’ is found right throughout the Bible:
– Ezekiel was caught up in just about every chapter.
– Isaiah was caught up in Isaiah 6.
– Jeremiah was caught up.
– Elijah was caught up. Obadiah said to him, “If I come here and bring Ahab, the Spirit will catch you up and you will be in another city again.” This means that the Old Testament saints knew the meaning of being caught up.
– Paul said, “I was caught up and I don’t know if it was in the body or out of the body, but I know of a man who was caught up… (Paul was talking about himself). (2 Corinthians 12) Then 14 years later he wrote to us about his experience.
The scripture doesn’t say that we will be caught up in the clouds, it says, “We will be caught up together with them in the clouds”. He doesn’t say that we will be caught up in the clouds, but with them who are in the clouds! We will be caught up with them that are in the clouds and we will meet the Lord in the air (oxygen). There will be a day when the church will be totally wrapped up in glory, totally caught up in presence, totally caught up in power. It will be a day when the saints in heaven and the saints on earth will completely be one in Christ, that all the power that they had through all the ages and all the power we dreamt of throughout the ages, will be combined in one. Christ will come to the front, in and through the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which He calls the fullness of times.
The first fullness of time = God sent forth His Son to be born of a woman.
The second fullness of time = There’s another birthing coming to the front.
Paul said, “I am in travail.” I want to give birth, until we come to that fullness. (Galatians 4:19)
Ephesians 1:11-14 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise. Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Everything in this scripture is for Himself, which means: “until the redemption of the purchased possession.” Romans 8 and 1 Corinthians 15 state that “we are waiting for the redemption of our bodies.” This means that we will not be limited by the flesh, but we will be driven by the Spirit. We will be totally overtaken by the Christ-life in us and will no longer be limited. We will be redeemed in our bodies, where we are now only redeemed in our Spirits. The time will come, when we have received the promise of the Holy Spirit and He has sealed us for the Holy Spirit’s promise that will bring us to the fullness of sonship.
Ephesians 1:15-20 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The Spirit’s promise is the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places
There is an inheritance in the saints which means that Christ must be formed in us. The saints are those in heaven and those on earth and to understand this, you must have a Spirit of Wisdom. To step into that promise, you must have the Spirit of Wisdom. Remember Romans 8:11 says But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
He wants to reveal to us (those who believe) the exceeding greatness of His power. This is a mighty power; it is the same power which He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead. If the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, dwells in us (which is the promised Holy Spirit, which we are now sealed with; which gives us the promise that if we get the Spirit of Wisdom), we will know what this great power is. Once we get this, our mortal bodies will be quickened. This means that once our mortal bodies are quickened, we will step into immortality and death will make place for life. Then we will also say, ‘Oh death, where is your sting?’ The time will come when the Holy Spirit that has been promised, that has now sealed us, that has given us a promise of the Spirit, which is Wisdom, will become a reality to man and once we received this Spirit of Wisdom:
-we will understand what our inheritance is,
-we will understand what this power is,
-we will understand what the inheritance in the saints is
-we will be quickened in our bodies which will be immortal
-we will step from death into life and
-we will come forth as Christ, whom the earth and creation is waiting for.
Ephesians 1:21-23 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
We’ve read this book over and over again. Ephesians has been a main study in every movement of our great God. The first thing that they tackled was this book, because it is awesomely rich in glory. Over and over we read: “rich in glory, fullness of His glory, for the praise of His glory” but after all these studies, people are still not living in the fullness of their inheritance. Paul had one prayer he prayed because of all these promises: “That the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ may give to you the Spirit of Wisdom…” If this is what he prays, that Jesus must give us the Spirit of Wisdom it means that it’s a promise; one we have not yet received. When we get this Spirit of Wisdom there will be a breaking forth of the understanding, the inheritance, the fullness, the Christ in us, the head of the church and every single doctrine that we’ve been teaching, clinging to and running after, will come to the front.
Do we have it?
Isaiah 9 and 10 is the whole preaching of John the Baptist in Matthew 2 and 3. John the Baptist was preaching and baptising, then the Pharisees came to be baptised, and John said, “Who are you to think you’re going to escape the wrath of God by being baptised? I say unto you Sadducees and Pharisees: Every tree shall be hewn down, and every tree that does not bear fruit, will be burned in the fire. Look, He’s coming (Jesus), His axe is in His hand and it’s already laid at the root of all the trees.”
Isaiah 9 and 10 say that: “All the trees of the field are chopped down, the branches are broken off and then it’s burned down and the entire field was burned down and there was nothing left. Then in Chapter 11, Isaiah prophesied the following: “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots…” Remember Ezekiel and Zechariah said: “There shall come One whose Name is the Branch and on Him shall the nations hope. And when He comes, He shall be a fountain opened unto redemption for the whole.” This reveals that all the trees were chopped down, but One root has been left over, called the root of Jesse, which is the fatness, which is the olive tree and out of this root a branch springs forth.
Isaiah 11:2-5 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; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
Now when we look at Romans 9-11 we understand that He’s not talking about the whole Israel that shall be saved. He said that God did not spare the original branches, He broke them off and you were ingrafted in that tree and has God not got the power to ingraft them again that the whole Israel be saved? In the same way the whole of Japan can be saved. It’s not you who carry the root, but it’s the root that carries you. It’s not you that bear the branch, but it’s the branch that bears you. The Branch said, “The Sprit is upon Me. It’s the Spirit of wisdom, understanding…” Because of the wisdom, He shall be quick to understand the fear of the Lord. Therefore when He ministers it will not be because He sees something with His fleshly eye or because He heard something with His fleshly ear, but He will be in the Spirit and He will not let anybody tell him about man, because He will know exactly what is in the inside of man. He will be moved upon by the Spirit of Wisdom and understanding. He will understand the thoughts of man and He will say unto them, “Why think ye evil thoughts in your hearts? What is easier to say, ‘Stand up and walk or your sins have been forgiven’?” Jesus knew exactly what the scribes and Pharisees were thinking, because He had the Sprit of Wisdom and understanding. He was also quick to understand the fear of the Lord, therefore He did not use physical senses, but He was moving in the Spirit.
Colossians 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In Christ all the treasures of Wisdom are hidden and when He comes He will declare: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me…” but He will be called the branch that grew up out of the root of Jesse. The only thing we can hope in is Christ. In Christ all the treasures of Wisdom are hidden. Wisdom is a hidden treasure, but what was hidden throughout the ages God has now revealed. That’s just the beginning of a means to come to an end. The real end, goal and destiny is to be conformed into the image of the Son, not Christ in us, but Christ formed in us. It will not be me living, but Christ. There’s a promise of a Spirit of Wisdom that still needs to come to the church. Paul said, “I give you all the promises, but I pray that you must get the Spirit of Wisdom to get all this understanding.”
1 Corinthians 1:18-24 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved (The Amplified Bible state: ‘…are being saved…’) it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world (Amplified = this present time and age)? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 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.
The important point is that Christ was crucified. The cross is not a stumbling block, even the Satanists use it. There’s no power in a cross, the power is in the Crucified Christ on the cross.
God wants to bring us to something awesome, to a hidden treasure (Wisdom), which is another promise that will bring us into another fullness of times. If we want to get there, we need to realise that the crucified Christ = the power and the Wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 2:6-7 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 naught: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
This is not a fulfilled scripture, it is a promise. It is not revealed; it’s hidden; it’s mysteries. The wisdom is a hidden wisdom. Christ in us is the hope – it’s not the glory – it’s the hope of the glory. What is the glory? Creation is waiting for the glory of the manifestation of the sons of God. When we are conformed into the image of the Son of God, glory will fill all the earth forNumbers 14:21 says But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD. When Isaiah saw the Lord in His temple according to Isaiah 6 seraphim were all around Him and they said, “Holy, Holy is the Lord” and the house was filled with smoke. They cried out that the whole earth is filled with His glory. They are prophesying that a time will come when glory will fill the whole earth again.
The wisdom of God is so great, that He nailed His Son to a tree. It is foolishness for those who don’t believe, but it’s a hidden Wisdom, it’s still a mystery, but this mystery will lead to our glory. Do you want it?
1 Corinthians 2:8-10 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
God has prepared things for those who love Him. The revelation is that we will come forth in the glory and in the image of the Son, we will be conformed to Him, and Christ will take full stature in us. It’s only a revelation not a manifestation yet. The whole world is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, the revelation of the sons and the adoption of the sons of God. There are 3 terminologies in sons of God.
There will be an adoption (a placing), a revealing, an understanding and a manifestation where we will understand the hidden treasures of wisdom. Wisdom is the mystery of the glory. Remember we were born again by the Word which is incorruptible seed and that made us children of God. Jesus Christ is called the Branch (Who has the Spirit of Wisdom, understanding and the fear of the Lord). He was crucified and that is called the wisdom of God. Paul says that there’s wisdom for the perfected people, but it’s still hidden and a mystery. That’s why he keeps on praying that we will get the spirit of Wisdom.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…
We’ve been trying our best to let the Word of God dwell in us – we’ve been memorising, confessing, quoting, saying and doing all, but we forgot that it must be in all wisdom. Paul says Wisdom is a spirit. To understand this, we’ve got to get the Spirit which is promised for another fullness of time. We need wisdom. Because of a hidden treasure, we see the revelation and we touch on it. Sometimes it is like we break through that dividing wall and we see glimpses of the glory, but the full measure will come when the Spirit comes and then we will understand. Then we will get the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead to quicken our mortal bodies, that means that death will cease and life will take over.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
In the beginning was the Word. In him was life and the life was the light of man and this was Adam in the beginning. The breath (Word) that God breathed into Adam, made gave him life, which was the light.
John 8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
Between the two scriptures, Jesus said, “You know why I am the light? I only do what my Father tells Me to do.” To have a Father, means that He had to be born. A father brings forth a seed into the womb of a woman. Without the two seeds, conception cannot take place. Jesus said, “I was born as a seed too and can only do what my Father tells Me to do.” When the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son born of a woman under the Law, so that those that are under the Law can be taken out into the liberty of the sons of God. The Pharisees asked, “Where’s the Father?”
John 8:29-38 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. As he spake these words, many believed on him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house forever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
When Jesus spoke to the house of Israel, He made it very clear that they do not have the same father. “Do you know how you can be free (have liberty and glory)? Abide in My Word.” They are slaves, because the Word found no entrance into them. Remember the Word is seed and when the Word didn’t find entrance in them, they did not have the same Father. “I am the Word that came as a seed, born as a child and became the Son.” Do you remember how many times Jesus said a sower sows the Word; the Word that I speak unto you, it is seed and it falls amongst you?
John 8:39-41 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
Hebrews 12 and Revelation 3 say that without reproof and correction you are illegitimate children. If you cannot take the correction of the Almighty God, you cannot be true sons of God. The Bible calls Wisdom a rod of correction.
John 8:42-45 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
John 8:51-52 Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Then said the Jews unto him, now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
Jesus said if My Word can find entry in you, you will be free. This freedom will lead to immortality. That’s where creation is heading to and where we shall not all die, but we shall all be changed. We do not know what we shall be hereafter, but this we know that when He comes we shall already be like Him. Jesus is not coming now. He’s coming when we are like Him. What will happen thereafter we do not know.
Acts 3:19-21 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Everything that all the prophets prophesied must first come into fulfilment.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
We shall be like Him and then He shall come. He’s waiting with creation for the matured, perfected sons of God, and when this happens He will say, “I think it’s time to go, Father.” When everything is submitted and subjected to the Son, He will give the Kingdom to the Father and return to the bosom of the Father, and God will be all in all. (1 Corinthians 15)
“The Word is seed and if My Word will find entry in you, you and I will have the same Father and you will understand freedom and liberty. If you understand this, you will never die. If you will take My Word and everything I say and believe my sayings and do that (Matthew 7), I will show you what I will compare you with. I will say that you are a wise man that builds your house on the rock. No matter what storm come, this house can’t fall.”
Matthew 11:18-20 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
Matthew 11:25-28 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
If the Son comes and reveal it, you will understand it.
Wisdom, in the Bible is referred to as: ‘Her’ or ‘She.’ Proverbs says that Wisdom is known by HER children. Wisdom = feminine gender. Wisdom is the Female gender of the Godhead that will cause me to quickly understand when God speaks. I will not have to discern by physical eyes and ears, I will understand by the fear of the Lord exactly when to heal who, where to go, and what to do, because I am able to receive the Word from my Father, because I’ve got Wisdom as a womb that can receive conception that will bring forth production. I will quickly receive the Word of My Father, because I always do what He says. I please Him and because of this I always receive His Word immediately in the Womb of wisdom because I’ve got the Spirit of Wisdom that brings conception that brings forth production. This is the reason for wherever I go, the sick are healed, the lame walk, the storms are stilled, but all these hidden treasures are in Christ.
Job 28:1-17 Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.
Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone. He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death. The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men. As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.
The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold. There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen: The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing. He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light. But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding? Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living. The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me. It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.
You were not bought for the price of silver and gold.
Job 28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.
Job 28:20-23 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air. Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears. God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
It’s not with the living, so God had to nail Christ to the cross to bring forth the hidden treasures of the wisdom. This was foolishness and stumbling blocks, but if you believe it, it brings forth power and wisdom. If the princes understood that, they would not have crucified Him, but the hidden treasures will bring us to glory if we get the Spirit of Wisdom. He says that we can find all the treasures, but where can we find wisdom? How will you find it? You cannot earn it, work for it, deserve it, search for it, you won’t find it. There’s no way in exploring, reading or studying it, it can’t be found.
Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Read Proverbs 1-4, as well as Psalm 111 to understand more clearly.
Psalm 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 forever.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Do you fear God?
Male seed has to be planted in the Female Womb to bring forth the Christ-man and produce children that can be sons. The womb that receives the Word is called Wisdom. “My Word cannot enter you, because you listen to lies and you do demonised things.” The most so-called holy people sometimes turned out to be the most demonised people.
James 3:3-18 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity; so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show 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 and 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 entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
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.
James 1:18-25 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
“If you do My Word, you are wise. Then you will bring forth fruit with meekness, gentleness, unselfishness, etc.” You must first hear it before you can do it. People are too quick to speak back and to say how they understand the Word, what they think of the Word and how they would reason out the Word. You are demonised – you still listen to the devil, because you don’t take time to listen carefully and without speaking and reasoning let it be implanted.
There are two kinds of wisdom: the one is from the earth and the one is from the Lord in heaven.
To come to the conformation of the image of the Son, the matured, perfected son, we’ve got to let Christ be formed in us to reach maturity. To get that, we must first find wisdom. It’s a hidden treasure in Christ that will bring us to the glory of the fullness of the sonship.
You must understand the seed of the Word (that comes from the Father that’s operating through Christ) comes into a womb that will bring forth fruit and the Word must dwell in us richly, but only in all wisdom. Wisdom is known of her children. The true children of God will understand how wisdom comes: it comes from the fear of the Lord. If we understand what happened on the cross, we will stop our nonsense, change about 90% of our doings weekly, stop to do a lot of things we’re doing and we will change the way we’re acting towards people. It’s not only in getting, but it’s also in doing.
Proverbs 3:1-7 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
If you fear the Lord, you will turn from evil. You will not take chances with sin.
Wisdom is called, ‘her’ – it is a she-spirit. By wisdom God founded the earth. It moved over the waters.
In the beginning, God (‘the many breasted one’ according to the original Hebrew), the God that can bring forth, produce and have milk said, “Let there be light.” It was with wisdom that He founded the earth. God spoke and His “Word seed” came out. He said, “Let US make man.” It takes two seeds to make a man. Was it the Father, Son and Holy Spirit or could it be the Spirit, the Spirit of Counsel and the Spirit of Wisdom? Or could it be the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding and Fear of the Lord? Who knows? The Word says a many folded/many sided/many breasted/many gendered God said, “Let us make man.” That’s how God created the world: out of Wisdom. She (wisdom) is a tree of life. Wisdom is the Spirit of God and in her right hand is length of days = immortality. In her left hand are riches and honour, but to get that, you must attend to My Word (Proverbs 1-4) and do it.
Fear the Lord with all your heart and honour Him with the first fruits of all your income.
The first test is money – can you bring it? “But Kobus” – you just failed it, so you can’t get wisdom.
Proverbs 3:21-26 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. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
Don’t be afraid of anything. If you have found wisdom, she is the tree of life, you won’t have to fear anything.
Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91:10-11 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
You got to get there where the tree of life is.
Revelation 2:4-7 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
You can overcome by staying in your first love and if you’ve left it, repent and do it again. Remember what you were like when you first got saved? There was nobody ugly on the face of the earth, nobody had faults and you were prepared to do everything for anybody. Remember it and do it. “If you don’t, I will take your candlestick away – your light will shine dimmer. If you do repent and overcome, I will give you to eat from the tree of life; I will give you wisdom. The tree of life, she, is wisdom. That wisdom is right in the midst of the paradise of God; the place called: “There”
Exodus 25:21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
Read Exodus 25-36 and know that this is only the shadow of the real thing. Hebrews 9 – The real one is coming when Christ come. All the people freely brought offerings of gold, silver, earrings, material and al lot more that had to be used for the building of the Holy Place of God. They brought it to Moses and he gave it to them so that they could build. Who was “them”? Not the builders and not the Levites or the workers. God chose woman whom He placed the Spirit of wisdom upon for the weaving of the material. God called and anointed a certain group of people with the Spirit of Wisdom so that they could cleverly, masterly, understandingly and with all wisdom build the sanctuary of the Lord. All the people brought their offerings, but only those who had the Spirit of Wisdom could work in the place called “There.” He makes a distinction between the people that brought the offerings and the people that helped to build the place called “There.” Everything that was in “There” was made by people who had the Spirit of Wisdom. To create and build the place they needed all the offerings of the people. They came back to Moses and said that there are too many offerings coming in, so Moses told the people to stop bringing offerings. Moses was a mediator between the people with wisdom and the people with the money.
Revelation 3 & 21 say that there in the midst of the paradise is the tree of life. If you overcome, you can enter there and eat of the tree of life. Jesus said, “If you want to be a partaker of Me, I have the Spirit of Wisdom. If I dwell in you and My Word abides in you – it will be in all wisdom – you will have all sides of the Godhead.” The Word must be received and you must dwell in wisdom. How do I find wisdom? It’s easy. Jesus says: “Go away from evil, do all My works that I command you to do. Be a doer of everything I say and it shall bring life. Then you can boldly come to the throne of grace, and inside this paradise is the tree of life. You can be eating in the very presence of God and then by receiving the Word, there will be conception and you will come forth in the matured son of the Almighty God.
How much wisdom do you have?
How do I get it? By the fear of the Lord.
What is the fear of the Lord? I obey Him and do His works. No jealousy, no strife, no envy, no backbiting, no gossiping, no contention, no slandering etc.
How do I find it? I ask God.
Depart from evil and be faithful with your money. If you don’t do this, wisdom will not be your portion. If wisdom is not your portion, the Word cannot dwell richly in you, because it can only dwell richly in wisdom. If it does not dwell richly in wisdom, the conception of the fullness of time, bringing forth the matured sons of God, will not happen in your life. You will stay a baby and die a child. Paul said, “I could not speak to you as matured men, but as little children in the Lord.” This unfortunately means that God’s children are dying all the time, but the sons will not die; because they will stay in the house forever – they will be liberated and free. If you find wisdom you will not die. Jesus is the tree of life, but it says, that the tree is a ‘she.’ Jesus has everything, because the fullness of God dwells in Him. You cannot define God, you can only believe!
