(WEB) Proverbs 9:10–
10 The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom.
The knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Wisdom is discernment. According to the Etymology Dictionary, to discern means to set apart or separate. It is the knowing of differences between things like what is rational/irrational , what makes the truth real (and whole) and lies false (and fragmented), what makes a person righteous or wicked. Wisdom isn’t essentially positive or negative, it is what you do with it that determines such.
In these last days, I can see before my eyes how YHWH is sifting men. YHWH is especially sifting between the men of Israel. His chosen are becoming wiser and their works are becoming more fruitful. The folly of the rest are becoming more apparent.
YHWH has his many titles, but when did he ever approve of “co-serving” any other name let alone any of his creations (angel or man)? YHWH illustrated, himself, the following in Deuteronomy 32:39–
39 See now that I myself am he.
THERE IS NO GOD WITH ME.
I kill and I make alive.
I wound and I heal.
THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN DELIVER OUT OF MY HAND.
YHWH also communicated in Malachi 3:6 —
6 For I, YHWH, don’t change; therefore you, sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
If YHWH doesn’t change, when are the true priests and prophets of Israel suppose to change or add to the name they are performing their duties in outside of YHWH alone?
A big deception is coming. At the highest level, it is a test of YHWH. Who does YHWH send to test and tempt men? None other than “Lucy”.
Job 1:8-12 —
8 YHWH said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant, Job? For there is no one like him in the earth, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil.”
9 Then Satan answered YHWH, and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Haven’t you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But stretch out your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will renounce you to your face.”
12 YHWH said to Satan, “Behold,all that he has is in your power. Only on himself don’t stretch out your hand.”
Get it together men of Israel!
5 YHWH is exalted, for he dwells on high.
He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.
6 There will be stability in your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge.
The fear of YHWH is your treasure.
