Rulers of This World: A Sharp Judgement Awaits You

The Wisdom of Solomon has words of warning to the rulers of this world. Chapter 6:

{6:1} Hear therefore, O ye kings, and understand; learn, ye that be judges of the ends of the earth.
{6:2} Give ear, ye that rule the people, and glory in the multitude of nations.
{6:3} For power is given you of the Lord, and sovereignty from the Highest, who shall try your works, and search out your counsels.
{6:4} Because, being ministers of his kingdom, ye have not judged aright, nor kept the law, nor walked after the counsel of God;
{6:5} Horribly and speedily shall he come upon you: for a sharp judgment shall be to them that be in high places.
{6:6} For mercy will soon pardon the meanest: but mighty men shall be mightily tormented.
{6:7} For he which is Lord over all shall fear no man’s person, neither shall he stand in awe of any man’s greatness: for he hath made the small and great, and careth for all alike.
{6:8} But a sore trial shall come upon the mighty.
{6:9} Unto you therefore, O kings, do I speak, that ye may learn wisdom, and not fall away.
{6:10} For they that keep holiness holily shall be judged holy: and they that have learned such things shall find what to answer.
{6:11} Wherefore set your affection upon my words; desire them, and ye shall be instructed.
{6:12} Wisdom is glorious, and never fadeth away: yea, she is easily seen of them that love her, and found of such as seek her.
{6:13} She preventeth them that desire her, in making herself first known unto them.
{6:14} Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.
{6:15} To think therefore upon her is perfection of wisdom: and whoso watcheth for her shall quickly be without care.
{6:16} For she goeth about seeking such as are worthy of her, sheweth herself favourably unto them in the ways, and
meeteth them in every thought.
{6:17} For the very true beginning of her is the desire of discipline; and the care of discipline is love;
{6:18} And love is the keeping of her laws; and the giving heed unto her laws is the assurance of incorruption;
{6:19} And incorruption maketh us near unto God:
{6:20} Therefore the desire of wisdom bringeth to a kingdom.
{6:21} If your delight be then in thrones and sceptres, O ye kings of the people, honour wisdom, that ye may reign for evermore.
{6:22} As for wisdom, what she is, and how she came up, I will tell you, and will not hide mysteries from you: but will seek her out from the beginning of her nativity, and bring the knowledge of her into light, and will not pass over the truth.
{6:23} Neither will I go with consuming envy; for such a man shall have no fellowship with wisdom.
{6:24} But the multitude of the wise is the welfare of the world: and a wise king is the upholding of the people.
{6:25} Receive therefore instruction through my words,
and it shall do you good.

Wisdom Shall Not Enter a Malicious Soul

Ephesians 6:12 from the Scriptures given to us by the Lord God, says that we, that’s you and I, our struggle in life is not with our flesh and blood existence. It comes from the spiritual battle within us, our dual existence of good and evil, inside and out. The threat to us is eternal death through worldly powers and rulers, principalities, princes of the dark places of this world, and all spiritual wickedness. Most don’t understand this concept other than on a very elemental level, a most child-like understanding of good and evil.

This ongoing “wrestle” presents many problems within this temporary existence. We see these every day.

I have, from time to time, expressed my own personal preference to not be involved in organized religions, mostly due the the host of problems associated with it. Most don’t realize that this wrestling against powers and principalities can be found walking between the pews of every “church” in this confound world. My two main reasons for not participating in ill-taught religious doctrine are, one, I don’t find enjoyment is being in a constant battle with all the evil that now controls every aspect of life here. I don’t need to add to it. And, two, there is but one real teacher, the Spirit of Truth, the Comforter, the Holy Spirit that Christ Jesus left for us when he rose from the dead. If we seek only the Holy Spirit for truth, wisdom, knowledge, love, understanding, He is faithful and just (1 John 1:9). Seek and you will find. Ask and you will be given. Knock and the door will be opened – Matthew 7:7. It’s a wonderful gift, but too often we don’t know how to deal with it.

That battle with powers and principalities gets in our way. Sometimes in our walk with the Holy Spirit, He directs us to receive bits of knowledge and information from others. We should never turn our backs on everyone around us because sometimes the Holy Spirit gives us knowledge through them. However, in our weakness we give in to the princes of darkness, we then can witness those who choose only to find fault with, ridicule, and demean those, in their imperfections, doing the work of the Lord God. This is troubling to say the least and is nothing more than an instrument of the spiritual wickedness in high places. A real stumbling block.

Through all of this spiritual battling, we are rendering ourselves incapable of the truth, love, wisdom, and understanding that is the gift of the Holy Spirit.

I was visiting a website last night where I often go, as I pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide and direct me, to give to me the Words of wisdom he has for me, knowledge and love so that I can grow and learn. While there, I saw the usual, where someone, in their fleshly existence, probably felt compelled, and in some cases believing they were doing the right thing, was criticizing a man’s ministry, mostly because he must not have liked the minister’s personality.

What bothered me as much as anything about this was the person presented himself as being of greater spiritual knowledge and wisdom and, as such, felt empowered to rebuke his “brother” and hoped the one he was rebuking would understand and seek God for help.

I have seldom, in my 60 years of learning from the Holy Spirit, seen any man “rebuke” another man in the spirit of the Lord God. In other words, it always comes out a mess. The result is always a victory for Satan.

Perhaps more of us should shut up, be quiet in the Spirit of God, listen to what the Holy Spirit is teaching us, overlook the fault of our fleshly existence and seek countenance with the spirit of those around us, particularly those whom we are seeking for knowledge.

Imagine the losses from those who won’t read anything Paul wrote because they don’t like him as a person.

As I retired to my room late last night, I began reading from the “Wisdom of Solomon.” The first chapter helped me to understand much of this dynamic and why some people just don’t ever seem to learn and grow in their spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding and present themselves in a similar manner as the person on this other website.

All of these – wisdom, knowledge, and understanding – are gifts from the Lord God but these gifts cannot be given when being invited to enter a dirty house. The Wisdom of Solomon Chapter 1, explains:

{1:1} Love righteousness, ye that be judges of the earth: think of the Lord with a good (heart,) and in simplicity of heart seek him.
{1:2} For he will be found of them that tempt him not; and sheweth himself unto such as do not distrust him.
{1:3} For froward thoughts separate from God: and his power, when it is tried, reproveth the unwise.
{1:4} For into a malicious soul wisdom shall not enter; nor dwell in the body that is subject unto sin.
{1:5} For the holy spirit of discipline will flee deceit, and remove from thoughts that are without understanding, and will not abide when unrighteousness cometh in.
{1:6} For wisdom is a loving spirit; and will not acquit a blasphemer of his words: for God is witness of his reins, and a true beholder of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.
{1:7} For the Spirit of the Lord filleth the world: and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice.
{1:8} Therefore he that speaketh unrighteous things cannot be hid: neither shall vengeance, when it punisheth, pass by him.
{1:9} For inquisition shall be made into the counsels of the ungodly: and the sound of his words shall come unto the Lord for the manifestation of his wicked deeds.
{1:10} For the ear of jealousy heareth all things: and the noise of murmurings is not hid.
{1:11} Therefore beware of murmuring, which is unprofitable; and refrain your tongue from backbiting: for there is no word so secret, that shall go for nought: and the mouth that belieth slayeth the soul.
{1:12} Seek not death in the error of your life: and pull not upon yourselves destruction with the works of your hands.
{1:13} For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living.
{1:14} For he created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth:
{1:15} (For righteousness is immortal:)
{1:16} But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to nought, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.

Wisdom Found No Place to Dwell Among Men

From the Book of Enoch, The First Parable, (pages 56-62:

42.1 Wisdom found no place where she could dwell, and her dwelling was
in Heaven.
42.2 Wisdom went out, in order to dwell among the sons of men, but did
not find a dwelling; wisdom returned to her place, and took her seat in the
midst of the Angels.
42.3 And iniquity came out from her chambers; those whom she did not
seek she found, and dwelt among them, like rain in the desert, and like dew
on the parched ground.

Man Is Incapable To Comprehend The Differences Between Man and Beast

Solomon, son of David, was given a gift from Yehwah – the gift of the Spirit of Wisdom and Knowledge. He understood many things as the Spirit of Truth taught him and revealed to him. His words are but the words of the Almighty Creator.

Therefore, Yehwah’s words tell us that men, who do not seek for His wisdom and knowledge, are incapable to understand that there are differences between a beast and a man. Both are Yehwah’s Creations but “there is a time for every purpose and for every work.”

The Spirit of Truth tells us in Proverbs 9: 10, “The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord, and the knowledge of holy things, is understanding.” When there exist no fear of Yehwah, then can we expect that man has Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding?

This lack of wisdom has existed a very, very long time. Today it is exacerbated among a wicked and perverse society.

Ecclesiastes 3: 17 – 21: 17 I thought in mine heart, God will judge the just and the wicked: for time is there for every purpose and for every work.

18 I considered in mine heart the state of the children of men, that God had purged them: yet to see too, they are in themselves as beasts.

19 For the condition of the children of men, and the condition of beasts are even as one condition unto them. As the one dieth, so dieth the other: for they have all one breath, and there is no excellency of man above the beast: for all is vanity.

20 All go to one place, and all was of the dust, and all shall return to the dust.

21 Who knoweth whether the spirit of man ascend upward, and the spirit of the beast descend downward to the earth?
