The wisdom of the Almighty God is saying to you:
How long, oh simple ones, will you love simplicity and scoffers delight in scoffing and fools hate knowledge? Turn at my rebuke. Surely I will pour out my spirit on you. I will make my words known to you.
Dear readers, listen to the following life and death, make or break warning, God’s wisdom is giving you now. You better sit down because it is extremely bleak, but this is the true wisdom of God. It is not the message of flattering preachers who tell you what people want to hear.
The true wisdom of God gives you this bleak warning. She says:
Because I have called and you refused. I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded. Because you disdained all my counsel and would have none of my rebukes.
I will also laugh at your calamity. I will mock when your terror comes. When your terror comes like a storm and your destruction comes like a whirlwind. When distress and anguish come upon you.
Then they will call on me but I will not answer, they will seek me diligently and they will not find me.
Dear readers, why will wisdom not answer these poor souls? Wisdom gives the answer herself and says:
Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord. They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own ways. And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
For the turning away of the simple will slay them and the complacency of fools will destroy them. But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure without fear of evil.
Dear readers, have you heard God’s wisdom speak now? Have you understood her warnings?
How will you respond? Will your complacency kill you? Will your turning away slay you? Are you among those who hate knowledge? Or will you repent and choose the the fear of Lord and then you will dwell safely and be secure without fear of evil?
Can destruction and terror hit a whole community or nation? I am German. We were wicked and God send a World War which killed millions of Germans. We had to drink the cup of God’s wrath. The war that killed most Americans was the Civil War. God’s wisdom called Americans to repentance before that war but not enough people were listening.
As I write this message there is war in Mosul, Iraq. Terror has hit this city. A long time ago God send a call to repentance to this city. And back then they repented. It is recorded in the Bible in the book of Jonah. God did not send terror to the generation that repented.
Dear readers, turn, repent and live securely. Why should complacency and hating knowledge kill you?
