Wish Men Indeed by kpakpandoN(m): 9:37am On Dec 25, 2018
One proof that a man is wise is that he listens to instruction and takes to correction. In this regard, Proverbs 10:8 says:
“The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.”
Wisdom is considered to be the correct application of knowledge; it is therefore a wise thing to seek knowledge. The wise men from the east demonstrated their wisdom by applying their knowledge of stars to seek after the new-born King, Jesus. Wisdom is not determined by the number of academic qualifications gathered but by the products of the quest for knowledge. The wise men saw a unique star, and they sought after its meaning until it led them to the Bright and Morning Star. For two years, they were resolute in finding the new born King. The learned rabbis in Israel did not see what the wise men saw, even though it was happening in their own backyard. How amazing! Of course, this is why these men from the east were considered to be wise. Although only God knows what these wise men did with their discovery of the King of the Jews, also born to be the King of the world, their wisdom would have been in doubt if they had not heeded the Lord’s instruction that they should not return to King Herod. Their efforts would have been wasted and they would have gone back to their country frustrated and in sorrow, because the wicked King Herod would have slaughtered the Holy Child right before them. Thank God they were not just philosophers and theologians, but also men who heard from God. They were not carried away by the allure of gifts they would have received from the king for their great discovery; rather, they heeded the voice of the Lord. This world would have been a better place if our philosophers and theologians were also prophets.

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
The wisdom of God in the above scripture recommends that we deploy everything we have in the quest for understanding. The surest way of getting understanding is through the Scriptures. Unfortunately, some foolish people who think they are wise are always undermining the Bible, which is true source of knowledge and understanding (Psalm 119:104). Beloved, ensure that your knowledge is based on the word of God, and that your understanding of things is influenced by the mind of God as revealed in His word. Merry Christmas!

I like This Stuff.
The Presidency should learn from this Instruction that God values The Granting of Full Autonomy of Police, Elections and Resources Security Control to our 36 Constitutional States now.
The F.G should be organised as The People want and be guidance for our Foreign Affairs, Military and Treaties.
The F.G will manage Parastatals and run all our Statutory Organisations on a going concern basis for Nigerian State.
The F.G will use for her Funding, 10% uniform contributions from each of our 36 States.
The Words of God is our Instructions, Directions and Discernment. From there we get Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding to redeem us back to Him in Christ Jesus.
Merry Xmas.
