How is Wisdom Gained? Prov. 3, Creation and the Fear of Yhwh!

Wisdom is something that is sought for by most all religions, and even mystery religions.  Wisdom is something that is not easy to come by, and usually requires time and difficult circumstances to arrive at.  Though not always.  Sometimes it is presented to us, and all we have to do is accept it, to believe it and act on it!

That's  the way it is in an ancient book written by a man credited with being the wisest man/king on earth.  In the book of Proverbs, written by King Solomon, son of David, king of Israel, he tells us how to have and hold on to true Wisdom.

13 How blessed is the man who finds wisdom
And the man who gains understanding.  Prov. 3:13

I was reading through Proverbs three yesterday (the Third of January), and this insight occurred to me, which I believe is from the Spirit, and so I want to share this with you.  

Starting In Proverbs 3:19, we read:

19 The YHWH by wisdom founded the earth,
By understanding He established the heavens.
20 By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
And the skies drip with dew.

My son, let them not [g]vanish from your sight;
Keep sound wisdom and discretion,
22 So they will be life to your soul
And adornment to your neck.

These verses tell us by wisdom Elohim, the Creator God, created the earth.  He 'founded it'.  That Elohim fashioned all of creation.  But in the next verse, it tells us that by His knowledge, the deeps were broken up, and the skies let drop the dew.  In the historical creation account, when do we first see water, or dew, falling from heaven?  It was not until the Flood, when Elohim, the just and righteous Creator had to bring judgment upon mankind for his evil ways and his perversion of the Creation (Gen. 6-9).

King Solomon is telling us, that if we truly want to be wise, we must hold on to the knowledge that Elohim is the Creator, according to the Seven day, 24 hour day account of Genesis (which was Solomons' frame of reference, though undoubtedly, as the wisest man, with 900 wives from surrounding nations [ok, he wasn't consistent with his wisdom!] he knew of other creation accounts, but held to the Biblical account!).

But not only that Elohim Yhwh is Creator, but that He is also judge, and that He judges man's wickedness and rebellion against Yhwh's design!  King Solomon tells us that if we hold on to this knowledge, and don't let it out of our sight, then it will be "life to your soul, and an adornment for your neck."  

We see this further in other Biblical writings, "the fear of the Yhwh is the beginning of wisdom," (Prov. 1:7, 2:5; Ecc. 3:4, 5:7, 12:13)

So what can we learn from this?  Well, Evolution, which is taught... mandated by our world governments (1 Jn. 5:19), begins apart from the Creative activity, and power of Elohim, who created all things, through His Word!  I could go into this about how in the Genesis account, we see all three members of the God-head active in Creation, but it tells us that Yhwh openly spoke things into existence in literal 24 hour day- periods of time!  

Darwinian Evolution, which most of our society believes (though it is unscientific because  it is a history of origins, and not testable nor verifiable), starts apart  from or without the involvement of Yhwh, reduces humans to the level of animals, and therefore not "created" in the image of God.  Therefore, according to the wisest man on earth (apart from Yeshua), Evolution is unwise, and indeed, against true knowledge... which isn't that supposed to be the goal of Education, knowledge?  But through the teaching of Darwinian Evolution, and pretending it is "Science" (knowledge), according to the Bible, we are stupefying our kids, and the masses who buy this lie that we all arose spontaneously out of primordial goop!

The Pope, that dragon in sheeps clothing(!), recently said that the God of the Bible created through Evolution, and that the Biblical account is to be understood as metaphor!  Folks, this is why the Pope and the Roman Catholic church does not want you reading the Bible!!!  Did you know that by saying this, the Pope is going against the very apostles that the Papacy claims as its legitimate right to rule!?

The Apostles Peter and Paul both believed in and taught a literal 24 hour day, Seven day creation by Elohim, Yeshua and the Spirit Himself (Gen. 1:2; John 1:3; Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:3).  So the very one who claims to be the "head of Chrisitanity" is opposing some of the very foundational teachings of the Christian faith.  According to King Solomon, to follow this Pope, would make one unwise!

But when we do keep Yhwh's Word, and the knowledge that He is both Creator and Judge, and live in the fear of Yhwh, King Solomon tells us some of the benefits of having wisdom and understanding!

23 Then you will walk in your way securely
And your foot will not stumble.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Do not be afraid of sudden fear
Nor of the [h]onslaught of the wicked when it comes;
26 For the YHWH will be [i]your confidence
And will keep your foot from being caught.
