God’s wisdom is treasure

 

Our Daily Bread Ministries

[Wisdom] is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.

Proverbs 3:14

Buried treasure. It sounds like something out of a children’s storybook. But eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn claims to have left a box of jewels and gold, worth up to $2 million, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. Many people have gone in search of it. In fact, four people have lost their lives trying to find the hidden riches.

The author of Proverbs gives us reason to stop and think: Does any kind of treasure merit such a quest? In Proverbs 4, a father writing to his sons about how to live well suggests that wisdom is one thing worth seeking at any cost (v. 7). Wisdom, he says, will lead us through life, keep us from stumbling, and crown us with honor (vv. 8-12). Writing hundreds of years later, James, half-brother of Jesus and leader in the early church, also emphasized the importance of wisdom. “The wisdom that comes from heaven,” he writes, “is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere” (James 3:17). When we seek wisdom, we find all kinds of good things flourishing in our lives.

To seek wisdom is ultimately to seek God, the source of all wisdom and understanding. And the wisdom that comes from above is worth more than any buried treasure we could ever imagine.

In Proverbs 4, Solomon encourages his sons to pursue wisdom and then emphasizes its benefits. Wisdom will watch over and protect (v. 6). She will exalt and honor the one who finds her (v. 8). She will adorn those who find her with “garland” and a “crown”—symbols of respect and dignity (v. 9). She will keep those who pursue her from stumbling and from stepping on the path of evildoers (vv. 12, 14). With all these benefits, it’s no wonder we’re to pursue wisdom no matter the cost. It’s worth everything we have (v. 7). J.R. Hudberg

My Declaration : I Believe

God is the creator of this universe, 
And Jesus Christ was sent to save the world, 
And all things that was written in the Bible, 
In Alpha and Omega, the start and the end of everything, 
All space and time is predestined, 
Unless it has been interfered by God, 
That Adam and Eve is our ancestors, 
And there was only one race, one religion, one language, 
From the very beginning. 
All powers and principalities, 
Are placed by God, 
Even unto persecution or death, 
We will have to carry out our cross, 
Salvation will only come, 
When we run a good race, 
And we should not seek violence, 
To solve a problem, 
The Holy Spirit, our guide to the Truth, 
And Man is the head of the family, 
The Pastor/priest is head of the Church, 
And Jesus Christ is the Messiah of the Church. 
In the new age, 
There will be a new heaven and earth, 
Derived from the old, 
That Death will be over, 
There will not be any sorrow, 
Darkness will be over, 
There will be no nightfall, 
There will be Light always, 
Mankind will reap what they sow, 
There will be abundant food and drinks, 
More than your heart desires, 
The Transformation will bring, 
And Mankind will be lord over, 
Time and Space, 
And Travel will be but in a twinkling of an eye. 
And Man will live forever, 
In the presence of God.

I am the Watchman/Silent Warrior in End Times preparing for Jesus return

I am the Eye in the Sky

With today’s satellite imagery, 
I can have a bird’s eye view, 
Of every city, 
Every movement of every traffic, 
And I know the intimate details, 
Every rail, bus or car can hold, 
I do not need, 
Very exact details, 
Just an estimate, 
To get my job done. 
Now imagine, 
If I merge this information, 
With every business estate, 
And I combine this, 
With every residential estate, 
I will know the heartbeat, 
Of any city I want to study. 
If I have furthur info, 
Of every sector of business, 
The volume of business generated, 
The income of every residential household, 
And their pattern of expenditure, 
I would have enough info, 
To built a view of a model, 
Where I can change any factors, 
To create my ideal model, 
To maximise the potential of income. 
And if I get the info, 
Of any sector of a business process, 
I will know how to tabulate, 
And fill in to the greater picture, 
And thru a series of fact finding, 
I will generate an insight no one has ever seen, 
Creating my business intelligence, 
Into any sector I chose

When my Lord comes back, Heaven will be a place on Earth

My Lord will come back for his church, the chosen 144,000. Where Heaven will be a place on Earth, And He will grant me the reward of my prize, A Bride chosen from every country and tribe, A Marriage made in Heaven with a promise sealed with every country and tribe in the world, Where my off springs will be as many as Abraham, An Everlasting Peace, Where sex and carnal desires will never exist, And no more prostitution and crime, Man will be given a shining new body thru the transformation, and he will also be Lord over time and space, With a twinkling of an eye, He can travel over the entire Universe, and Man can also live and create life in other colonies in the Universe, Eternal life will be given, and no more bad weather or disruptions of the weather, earthquakes or tsunami, famines, diseases, sickness or death. We are going to be like Angels, to sit and eat with our Lord and worship and praise Him, in Peace and prosperity forever. In Heaven God will allocate resources based on your talents, like now on Earth everything is allocated based on an economic system, this system is no longer necessary, in the Economy of Abundance. Why I do not support Climate change, it is because of sin in the world, we are on a path of destruction, if we reverse the course and get rid of all weapons of mass destruction, with proper waste management and stop deforestation, our destiny will be different and everything in the climate will change for the better.

What will happen to the rest of the people? They will be kept out of the city of God until Judgment Day, where they will be exposed to harsh conditions where Satan will be in control of everything. God does not want to destroy the world by fire, which is the destiny of mankind, this is the last chance to get rid of nuclear, or when the Anti-Christ comes he will kill one third of the world population, and all of the Bible prophesies will come true.

The Lust of your Eyes

 

I am a normal human, and not a saint, whatever a man desires so do I, but over many years, I have slowly trained myself to kick the habits, but 1 thing I still have not overcomed, is my addiction to dopamine, I need dopamine to self release the stress I faced from work, I longed for a natural way to do it with my lifelong partner, many scammers and women have tried to lure me with sex, but it no longer works on me, because I have overcomed, and will await for my partner to be provided by God.

My Lord teaches me, to test every girl who comes to you, what is their expectations, and what do they want in return, do they love you, or want your money, what is their heart actually like, their morals and their values, but sad to say, nobody qualifies for more than 15 years after my divorce. I am too smart to be fooled by any woman, if I like her, I am willing to accept her imperfections, her lifestyle can be different from mine, but can she carry the responsibilities? There is nothing to hide in my life. I am impotent and can never have sex with a woman. Contributed by Oogle.

Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it. Luke 11:28

Brian was scheduled to be an usher at his brother’s wedding, but he was a no-show. Understandably, family members were disappointed, including his sister Jasmine who was the Scripture reader for the occasion. At the ceremony she flawlessly read from the well-known Scripture passage about love in 1 Corinthians 13. But after the wedding when her father asked her to deliver a birthday gift to Brian, she hesitated. She found it harder to live the words about love than to read them. Before the evening was over, however, she had a change of mind and admitted, “I can’t stand and read Scripture about love and not practice it.”

Have you ever been convicted by Scripture that you read or heard but found it difficult to carry out? You’re not alone. It’s easier to read and listen to God’s Word than to obey it. That’s why James’s challenge is so fitting: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (James 1:22). His mirror illustration makes us smile because we know what it means to observe something about ourselves that needs attention. But we’re deceived if we think that observing alone is enough. When James nudges us to “[look] intently into” and “[continue] in” God’s truth (v. 25), he encourages us to do what Jasmine was compelled to do—live it. God’s Word calls for it, and He deserves nothing less.
