Death penalty can be passed on to the newly birthed.
An unknown act brought a death penalty to the innocent elder.
It was an unguided hour when the man highly respected amidst the masses he governed was seen pacing up and down the royal window.
From His idle state near the upper Chamber, he gazed through and right there, he battled with an information sent by his constant -GUARD ON DUTY – “an enemy of his soul”.
The information sent to his motor cortex made him to eat the forbidden apple belonging to his servant Warrior.
“No matter how spiritual you are, when you’re unguided the enemy of yourself pulls you down”. It’s always a constant FIGHT.
Moreover, after the lacuna, another was birthed as an evidence to the mercy granted by the owner of life. He came after much pleading and crying. The newly birthed became an only fruit of His intercessors. Mercy found him amidst the 500 sons, and he became the heir to the throne. The very thing that made him special and chosen amidst his equals and elders left all in search till this day…… All we recall is the “Divine alteration”.
Meanwhile, in an obscured way he wrote down his SECRET. The secret that brought him before kings, the one popularly known by all humans.
Kings and queens travelled a far distance to seek His honour and to bring solutions to their wandering souls. He wrote down the secret that brought his wealth and fame. Verses upon Verses and Chapters upon Chapters, he wrote them down. He died emptying all. It became a vision made plain upon tables, that He may run that readeth it. A Secret that He poured all His words trying to explain.
Emphasis upon emphasis were made. In his address, he made reference to the Youths, Children, Mothers, Fathers, the Rich, the Poor, Married and Unmarried. He wished and echoed three BASIC THINGS:
A listening ear
An obedient heart
And a ceaseless search
His address generally is for generations after generations and many years to come. He wrote them to teach the masses on how to live in this fading world. Who on earth will have a privilege to make any request of his choice, but yet he demands for the unseen? This was the story of this newly birthed.
The result of His choice earned him wealth and fame. In one word, he coined it a six letter word: the principal thing – “WISDOM”.
What then is wisdom? And how can man become Wise? How can it earn wealth and fame? This was the very question he asked. He gave a trial to everyone for an explanation; the Rich and poor alike. But the answer wasn’t satisfactory so He had to give an explanation for all to see and He went beyond writing it down.
In human thoughts, They might compare wisdom to the deep reasoning of the carnal man, the strategic ways to success, the logistic human mind or the twisting of every word to prove an argument. But all ended up fruitless and a fallacy compared to the secret the newly birthed gave.
In His word, he said; “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction”. Prov.1:7.
Another rich man said a similar thing; “And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding”. Job 28:28.
And finally the long mentioned intercessor who had been the cause for the death of the elder said a similar thing; “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever”. Psalm 111:10.
His answer left a big search in my heart! A deeper reasoning and clarity! Comparing the scriptures, in clarity I deduced that true wisdom is the fear of God.
In Proverbs 1 vs. 20-21: “Listen! Wisdom is calling out in the streets and marketplaces, calling loudly at the city gates and wherever people come together” I also deduced that the wisdom he was talking about is the WORD OF GOD. So when he was given the opportunity to choose by the giver of life, he requested to know, grow, obey and to search Him daily above the pleasures of life. No wonder everything was added unto him as he was seeking the Kingdom (Matt 6:33).
Today this wisdom is everywhere as described in Proverb 1:20, in the streets, buses, road, schools, near houses, market places etc. But yet, majority go about their businesses without giving a listening ear. Majority hear without yielding while majority kill the Channels in which the Maker announces His Word. Majority have made themselves a mockery to this wisdom by preaching fallacy to the masses…
Remember there’s an end for any man that rejects Wisdom. Prov. 1:24-30 gives the description; “I have been calling you, inviting you to come, but you would not listen. You paid no attention to me. You have ignored all my advice and have not been willing to let me correct you. So when you get into trouble, I will laugh at you. I will make fun of you when terror strikes when it comes on you like a storm, bringing fierce winds of trouble, and you are in pain and misery. Then you will call for wisdom, but I will not answer. You may look for me everywhere, but you will not find me. You have never had any use for knowledge and have always refused to obey the LORD. You have never wanted my advice or paid any attention when I corrected you.”
WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING MY DEAR READER!!
Do you want wealth, money, fame, anything at all?? FEARING GOD AND TAKING HEED TO HIS WORD IS THE KEY AND THERE ARE BENEFITS……..
This is the Proverb, and only the wise will understand it.
