I love Proverb 8, for it tells us how to model Messiah. It begins:
1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
Don’t young children cry out and the wise mother defend her children? That mother can be a man or a woman, as long as they have a mother’s heart. The father’s heart is all about Law and order and obedience. The mother’s heart is all about love and mercy. There’s a huge difference, but the two are designed to work together, like two chambers of a heart that pump out the blood (Law and Love) to the body and pump back in the blood to renew it (renewed Love and Law) when disobedience have depleted both. Messiah and his motherly gospel of love has come to renew our strength. Why?
That’s because the strength of the land has two shoulders. It has a left and a right. The left shoulder is the Law. The right shoulder is Mercy. To have one or the other is only partly responsible. There will be blame shifting. Adam:
The woman made me do it.
The serpent made me do it.
There will be denial. Peter about Yeshua:
I don’t know him. I never saw this man before in my life.
And that is actually true. Peter denied Yahusha because he never really did see Yahusha in his worldly state that he was in. He only saw the truth when he was gone. Only then was he repentant. Repentance is critical for us, who are in critical condition as a body. We must die to self, or we can have no wisdom of our true Messiah. We won’t see him standing right in front of us, staring us in the face, in the eyes, the windows to the soul. What are you reading or hearing right now? What is truth to you? When you hear his truth, you will recognize it, unless you have a heart of stone.
2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
The mother of wisdom, the truth of Messiah stands at the top of the mountains, her voice above the leaders; and by the way of the paths, the humble places where no one looks, to cry out against injustice and to serve the poor in Spirit and in the flesh.
3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
She cries at the entry of every city, home, “church,” abortion clinic, government office of justice, marriage, schoolyard, hospital, relationship, union or group where two or more people are gathered together. She cries for justice and mercy, patience and temperance, but there is little to be found. Wisdom is faith in Messiah and in the Laws he came to teach us, and that he demonstrated – the Laws of order, the Laws of Love.
4 Unto you, O men, I call and my voice is to the sons of man.
The voice of the wisdom of Yahuah’s Word Yahusha is calling. This part of the voice that is calling is talking to all men, women and children. We are to pay attention! We are to hear and obey! (The Hebrew Word for this is “Shema” [Shuh-mah]).
5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
But people have hearts of stone, not flesh. They lack compassion. They lack caring. They lack wisdom. They lack LOVE. And that is the way that they are teaching their children to go. As a result, look at society as a body. It’s a mess. But that is how we are made. We have hearts of flesh when we are born from other stoney hearts. And life hardens that heart even more until it turns into a solid heart of stone. It becomes reprobate. It turns away from truth and wisdom. It becomes rebellious. It grows cold. It sins and it doesn’t care that it sins. It wants what it wants, even unto death of itself and everyone else.
As a result, there is a lack of caring, a lack of compassion, a lack of wisdom, a lack of love in the land. The world is out of balance, because all have sinned. When there is sin, there is no balance, no life, no justice and no mercy. There is no love and no life. It kills its own children. There is only death.
Without wisdom, there is no justice. There is only Law.
Without love, there is no mercy. There is only death.
Without long suffering, there is only instant gratification. There is rejection.
Without compassion, there is only wounding. There is no healing.
Without tender mercies, there is no kindness. There is only destitution.
Without temperance, there is only anger. There is no joy.
Without self-control, there is only violence and death. There is no life.
Without obedience and respect, there is rebellion. There is no peace.
Think on these things, because the Laws of Liberty that Messiah Yahusha came to
teach, demonstrate and emphasize, are wisdom in the Father’s Law. But mankind is relying upon his own wisdom. That is no wisdom at all, because it doesn’t bring life.
The Word says:
6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.
Yes, the things of the flesh are to be left behind, like the fleshly body in the man that Yahusha left behind when he left us here. But he sent his Spirit, the Spirit of wisdom, a motherly love that is spoken from the mother, the one who is bringing forth his wisdom in the latter days. It is the latter day gospel of Yahusha Messiah, the motherly gospel that is to teach men and women how to leave the flesh behind and love in the Spirit of Messiah. It is a Spirit that has right judgment and mercy, right wisdom and understanding. She casts her net on the right side of the boat to catch fish in abundance, because her wisdom is truth.
She has proper interpretation of the Law and of Love, and she is here to teach us how to rightly apply the Father’s Laws, statutes and judgments in our lives. It’s all about Law and it’s all about Love. It’s freedom from the tyrannies that man imposes upon men and women through so many constraints from religions to government oppression in the name of “God” to what individuals do to one another in relationships.
She is about respect and honor and all for the glory of the One Elohim who made all things, the living and the lifeless. His wisdom is here to bring life into those who have none, and wisdom to all, to make the right choices now while we still are able to choose.
7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
The mouth that he sends is his Spirit poured out onto all flesh in these latter days, beginning with the mother. Are we listening? Wickedness is an abomination to his lips. He refuses to speak wickedly. There is nothing perverse coming out of her mouth.
8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
Deuteronomy 32:20 says that “froward” means they are children who have no faith in Messiah or in the Laws he came to uphold and teach.
There is nothing that Father says in his Word, that is perverted or twisted. But his Words have been reshaped by men and their religions into something that is not the truth. His Word is truth. Man’s word is perverse and lacks wisdom. It is out in left field and to be left behind. Men who teach the “gospel” of men on Earth are fishermen in leaky boats. We aren’t to go down with the ship that is sinking. They are fishing on the left side of the boat, where the dead and dying are found. Those leaders and all those who follow them will be left behind. It’s time men and women cast their nets onto the right side of the boat. That is right thinking, right living, right doing, and right believing and speaking.
Here is what Pontius Pilate said to Yahusha’s (Jesus’) face (John 18:38):
What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
Pilate asks what is truth? As a leader, he was wise enough to know that truth in the flesh is interpreted differently between men and women and religious and government laws. He knew that every person’s truth was according to their own judgment and experience. He knew that man’s truth was nothing. It was confusion. It lacked order. He was a man of Law who was there to keep the order. And he knew that with Law was order. That was his role. The Law, the One who created all things, is asking those who are reading and living the book, if we know what truth is, because he is standing right in front of us, even today in his Word (and his words), by his Spirit. His wisdom is truth and understanding and she is speaking to all of us. Are we listening?
The answer is that only those who have the anointing of the Messiah know truth. By the way, Pilate wasn’t going back out to the “Jews”…he went back out to speak to the religious leaders, the Pharisees and the Sadducees who were conspiring to remove the anointed One from the world. Their religious laws were added to the Laws they were entrusted to protect.
But fleshly man corrupts all messages over time because his heart is stone. The flesh turns a simple (united but divided to serve in smaller portions) two-part Gospel of Peace into 30,000+ religions all claiming to be “the way” to truth, a way to Heaven. There is only One way! It is through the anointed Messiah. Those who pervert the message are the men who cast stones. Their stones are rolling down the mountaintop on their way to the bottom, by the law of gravity (grave-ity).
And they will stay there at the bottom, in the pit of death. All stones that are manmade (doctrines, laws, religions, traditions) will weigh things and people down until they become immovable. They will stay that way unless and until something or someone stronger than them, someone with truth and light will see them and overturn the weight of the thing holding them down. That stronger man is Messiah’s truth and light.
What’s weighing you down? What’s holding you back from the right choice, the right life now?
If you haven’t chosen wisely how to live today as well as where you want to live once you leave this place, you will die in the flesh and you will die in the Spirit. That’s not a death anyone should have! If you are a person who loves control, then control THAT. Make the right choice. Make a choice for Messiah and obedience to his Laws now while you still can. That’s because this space, this time, this season is the season of choice. It’s not about free will choice in the flesh so you can build your kingdom however you want to or marry whoever you want to, or live however you want to out of rebellion under a false sense of fleshly freedom.
It’s about free will choice to choose the right things so you can move in the right direction to build His Kingdom in Heaven beginning right here, right now on Earth. Your death in the Spirit doesn’t have to happen if you choose to die to your old ways of living right now and begin to walk in his Word.
The anointed One, the Messiah allowed his death to happen because he came to show us what the Father’s Love was all about. And he died for us to pay our sin penalty (which was death) so that we could live in eternity if we get his message and our lives right. But he rose again and is the living, perfected Word of the Father who will come again to gather those who are believers and doers of his Word.
So far most of the people in the world are still way out in left field. They have either no message, or an anemic part of the message. So I AM is here in this field of timelessness, field of white, field of man that weaves tales like a giant two-sided spider web to send anointed Words of truth to the masses on the right side. I AM here in the flesh to water you with the Word of Messiah and to answer questions in a way that points us to the Word so all may begin to see the wisdom in the Word and apply its right concepts to their lives.
Like a good mother, once the people begin to grasp the concepts of this thing called Love, the flesh will let go of their hands and encourage their wobbly little legs to allow the Holy Spirit’s full anointing to come upon them so they may know the fullness of our loving Elohim and choose him now before it’s too late.
Or will you choose the religions of men instead because you like traditions or that you can simply blame someone else for what is your responsibility today? Man’s religions include having no religion at all, because the religion of self, is selfishness. It isn’t love.
Where is the wisdom in your words? Where is the wisdom in your life?
A lack of wisdom brings death.
Proverb 8 continues:
10 Receive my instruction, and not silver and knowledge rather than choice gold.
Receive the instruction of wisdom and knowledge of the Word. It’s more important than anything. It’s life.
11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
Nothing is more valuable than eternal life and nothing is more precious than the organic Word straight from the Spirit of the Most High Elohim the One who gives life and takes it away!
Deuteronomy 32:39 – See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
There is no “god” but Elohim, the Creator, who came down in part, as the Messiah. He divides himself to show us men and women what the heart, mind, soul and strength of our Creator looks and feels like. He shows us how to live and to treat one another, and most importantly HIM. Messiah gives us a “new” commandment:
John 13:34 – A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
That love he has for us is to give his life, his heart, his mind and his soul and strength to us to teach us and to save us. It is a life of self-sacrifice in the Law and in the ways of the Messiah. It is obedience to the Laws of our Elohim. It is loving him first and giving our life for him, just as he gave to us. And it is giving our life in service to him for one another to teach others his love and how we are supposed to be living.
We are to obey his Laws and his Love. We keep his commandments, not the religious commandments of men. We keep the Sabbath Day that the Creator established, from sundown Friday evening to sundown Saturday evening. We don’t keep the “sabbath” that man the usurper king has established within his churches. Man has no authority whatsoever over the One who created all things, to change the Laws of the Creator!! But the “wisdom” of men is to claim their own authority over God. That “wisdom” is no wisdom at all! It is Satan’s wisdom. It is arrogance and rebellion. It is death! Men disobey the commandments of Old and make up their own self-serving commandments.
1 John 2:7 – Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
That old commandment is in the Old Testament. It is the Laws of old, from the ancient of days. We are to obey his Laws. Or do you believe what your pastor, rabbi or other leader have told you: that the Law is “dead”? If that were true, then obedience is dead. Love is dead. Compassion is dead. Kindness is dead. Patience is dead. Gentleness is dead. Self-control is dead. Life is dead. No wonder the world looks the way it does today.
The “Law is dead” gospel is a lie of Satan! It’s death itself! Don’t follow it. The “grace” gospel is only partly true. Grace doesn’t mean we can “believe” in a Messiah and now we have no responsibility or work to do. The true grace of the Father is that we haven’t all been destroyed for our disobedience yet. But we will be if we don’t choose rightly and change how we are living and obey the Laws Father established at the beginning. The I AM is here to shine the light of truth in the land, to illuminate the darkness while there is still time. Shema!
1 John 2:8 – Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
In the beginning, we received all of the commandments from the Father. They came down on tablets that had ten main categories of Laws. They were divided into two tablets because there were two foundational principles we needed to grasp. We would learn them under two priesthood seasons of time (Levitical and Melchizedek) They were to:
a. Love the Father and him only shall we serve
b. Love one another as we love ourself
That’s another blog, but ponder it and choose life. The lady is speaking. She’s his wisdom, and she’s speaking to the “lady” that lacks wisdom in each of us. He is reminding us that he told us this from the beginning. Like Eve, we’ve forgotten what we were told because we were staring at that shiny fruit on the tree that we so longed to have. It was a choice fruit. The fruit of choice. And that fruit was rotten and our rotten choices. It is sin. Repent!
2 John 1:5 new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a
What does loving one another look like? Just look at Yahusha on the tree/stake/cross as our example. It is dying to self so that others may live for eternity. That loving one another is found only in the obedience to the Law that Father established. It is found only in his Laws, statutes and judgments that we are to follow. But his Law is full of mercy, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. It is Law and Love which in short, is Love, period. But the Law is hidden within that Love and it is served with all our heart, mind, soul and strength as we Love.
The understanding and wisdom in the Law comes by His Spirit. And that is who is here today and who is coming upon all flesh to teach us all truth. It is his anointing, his anointed wisdom who is speaking. It isn’t the wisdom of the flesh, the wisdom of the man with the stony heart. It is the wisdom of the woman, the wisdom of the heart of flesh, the anointing in the Word made flesh. She is the wisdom of Messiah.
1 John 2:27 – But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
We don’t need any fleshly man to teach us. We need the woman in Messiah. We need his Spirit in our flesh.
Go ahead and bite on that apple.
The truth of that fruit is that you will surely live.
