Wisdom and Understanding

File:Job and His Daughters(tempera).jpg    Ancient Job asked, ‘ But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

Then  Job said something very weird. He wrote,  “ Wisdom and understanding, it is not found in the land of the living.’  Wow, that’s a good one.

The 4,000 year old Fresco was restored using a  laser So it would seem that is the reason ancient Paul said, “…The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.’

What do you think that means? Isn’t it from this world that you were ‘taught’ what ‘wisdom’ is? So does that mean that the ‘wisdom’ you have been taught and have believed if true, is ‘foolishness’...With God?  Foolish, because our ‘wisdom’ is of ‘this world’.  It appears that these ancient men believed in some other world?

Where then should you look for the place of, ‘wisdom and understanding? To whom will you look, if not man? If not in and of  ‘this world…Where?

Okay, when in doubt….dedective28 investigate.

Going back to Job, we find that he believed, There is a Spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth understanding.”

Any idea what he meant by the word, ‘understanding? Well how about the dictionary meaning of, ‘thoroughly familiar with.’ Well, the question is, how ‘thoroughly familiar’ are you with  your ‘spirit.’ 

Do you really want to be ‘thoroughly familiar with your ‘spirit? Your God? If so,  how willing are you to take the time to become ‘thoroughly familiar with’ your ‘spirit?  And if you do, you will need to know what the ‘Spirit Job talks about, is?

 

A meaning for ‘spirit’ is a,‘living animating force with intellectual power.’

Did you know that. I didn’t.  Isn’t that what God is, a  ‘living animating force with intellectual power.’   

‘But where shall wisdom be found….Where is the place of understanding? And Job answered his own question.  Only God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.    Not man.So maybe you should forget all you have been taught from man, and go directly to God. And where is God?

Right where Jesus told you.’ Within you.genesis_l

The ‘‘living animating force with intellectual power, within you,’ is the only thing that can and  will give you your ‘wisdom and understanding’.

Doesn’t that tell you to do as Job said, and not to be looking in ‘this world’  for your ‘wisdom understanding’?

Instead, you are told that the place of ‘understanding‘ is with the ‘spirit‘ that lives within you. And that is why you are being told that you have to go ‘within you’ for all  ‘wisdom and understanding.’ They can and are found only in the ‘spirit,’ that is ‘within you

Is it the ‘spirit within’ that you have been going to for your ‘understanding? Or do you look elsewhere? In books? Books that tell you of the writers understanding. Do you look to others…like your religion and its leaders?

Have you been looking everywhere for your ‘wisdom and understanding...and still can’t find it

Stop. LOOK WITHIN YOUR OWN SELF, the ONLY place to find anything real.

The ancient writes knew and they did their best to show you that  you cannot find true ‘understanding  anywhere in this  world and they did tell you were to get it….WITHIN.   Go ‘within‘ because there is indeed a ‘spirit within’ you, and it is only from this ‘spirit‘  that you can find  YOUR ‘wisdom and  Your understanding.

About babarahs

I was born with an Inquiring Mind and I love all things weird. Weird like UFO'S-Mysticism-Ancient Beings-Really ODD stuff found in the Bible. I do not believe in the reality that has been handed down to me. I believe there is only one Reality....Consciousness. I was also born with a great spiritual desire ...which does NOT include any religion or their beliefs.

    As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world of illusion. Our senses are incapable of grasping reality. Real life and real wisdom only exist in another world, another dimension altogether.

    Knowing is easy. Hard part is letting it all go.
