The Lord rejoicing over us to do us good, and rejoicing over us to destroy us...these are synchronous events. Doing us good is the declaration of who he is, the persona we should follow. And when we do follow to be like him, his very nature destroys that thing in us that is not like him....
It isn’t clearly stated because the Old Testament is a hidden wisdom written according to types & patterns. Patterns which cannot be seen by reading the letter of the word. The letter of the word is the top layer. Anyone can read it and get the natural understanding. There are multiple layers of spiritually discerned understanding beneath. I was just sharing one of those layers with you.
Four wise men study scripture. One says scripture is theology. The second says scripture is history. The third says scripture is religion. And the one that is last says scripture is an autobiography. Which of the four wise men has understanding?
Your question wasn’t side stepped, it was answered directly.
The mind of Christ, that is to say, the bride of Christ is able to discern. Wisdom is the Father. Understanding is the Son. These two together, wisdom and understanding are the Spirit of the Lord.
When wisdom is “given” it is required of men to “take” what wisdom brings forth. Otherwise entry back into Eden is not possible. But as wisdom comes down to us, we are able to rise up in this understanding and all things become possible.
Four wise men gave answer to the people regarding scripture.The Theologian said…The second, a Historian answered…The next, a man of religion, said…The fourth wise one spoke and said…
If you think I’m lost and rebellious then by all means stop being a hypocrite, and do as the Lord teaches and pray for me.
Team, Is calling out a hypocrite an insult? Or is it only an insult to the hypocrite? Were the Pharisees and scribes insulted when they were called hypocrites?Of course they were, they were hypocrites. They heard what they could not comprehend with their carnal minds. They were educated and couldn’t comprehend that an uneducated one might offer insight. Like you, you’re educated. I’m not educated in the world system. So In responding to your initial post, you reply, “sounds nice, but that’s not it” and all you’ve done since is attempt to catch me in my words because they don’t agree with your education. I share a parable taught by the Lord and you say “nice story”. And this because you don’t know what else to say because it is spiritually discerned, something education does not offer. Do you know that a parable is an exercise for your good? The entire Old Testament is a parable. It’s intended to take us away from the carnal mind and into the mind of Christ. My story was foolishness to you, neither could you understand it. I perceive your thoughts and intent very clearly. But rather than resist, I encourage you to use it as a means to move from the old way of thinking into the new way of thinking...which way is in you, and available to you, if so be you choose to seek it out. Father + Son = Holy Spirit...and that’s a team of two or three that cannot be overcome.
Yes, it’s so, the Lord taught that parable. The Lord taught it to me and I shared it with you....
