Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16
One of the great signs of the end-time is the uncovering of the ways of God. God has ways. His ways are good, they are always correct and ever current. God’s ways can never be outdated; they are the old paths that lead to rest.
As God begins to make known His ways, the world will come to appreciate that the ways of the Almighty are far higher than the ways of men. God’s Word declares:
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.Isaiah 55:9
Therefore, God’s ways are superior to the ways of the world; and that’s why no matter how much secular education an unsaved man acquires, he cannot match up with the level of results the saints will produce this end-time, operating the higher ways of God.
That is no wonder, because what is from above is above all. What man has is at best ordinary ways, and ordinary ways lead to ordinary ends. But God’s ways are extraordinary. When He opens you up to it, you are automatically on a flight! You leave the realm of the natural to the supernatural; you cross over from the realm of the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Wisdom is laying hold on the ways of God, God’s approach to every issue of life. It is knowing from God’s Word which way to go and how to handle situations to make them produce desired results. Wisdom is knowing how to make it in life!
I want to define supernatural wisdom as the supernatural ability to bring solutions to dark matters too difficult for the human mind. And that is the wisdom I will be introducing you to in this book.
Also, I will be showing you the technicalities of this wisdom. You will understand its inner workings and how results can be obtained. This will make you stop running helter-skelter, because you will know the strategy for winning in life – by operating God’s kind of wisdom.
However, this wisdom is not common sense, but scriptural sense. It is the ability to operate by scriptures in every aspect of your life. It is making use of the Word to produce profits in any given area of life. I often say that, until you work certain things, they won’t work of their own accord. The word is immutable, but until you put it to use, it never works.
“…wisdom is profitable to direct.” (Ecclsiastes. 10:10.)
Second Timothy 3:15 says:
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
It is time for the Body of Christ to begin to pursue a working knowledge of Scriptures. As it does, we will witness mighty manifestations in all areas of life.
The Wisdom Era Of The Church
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 3:10-11
God is building up a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing. It will be one without blemish, much respected and to be reckoned with; a Church that has practical dominion in all areas of life. It will be a Church in charge! The purpose for building up Zion is for the ultimate appearing of Jesus. Until Zion is built, scriptures tell us He will not return.
Psalm 102:16 says:
When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
This gives us an insight into the agenda of His return. The Church must have come to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ before His appearing. That is why Jesus is committed to building up the Church, and the instrument He will be using is that of wisdom.
Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
Wisdom is therefore very crucial to the end-time programme of God.
By It The Church Will Reign
The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.
God’s strength is wrapped up in His wisdom; and if He will send the rod of His strength into Zion, it means that He will cause the Church to rule in the midst of her enemies by the rod of wisdom.
Why? Because God has destined the end-time Church to demonstrate His manifold wisdom, exercising dominion on the earth (Ephesians. 3:10).
That means, no matter the number of demons connected to your problem, God’s wisdom can knock them all out. Jesus cast out evil spirits with His Words (Matthew. 8:16); and you know that His Word is His Wisdom. So, He knocked out evil spirits with His wisdom. In your home, for instance, God’s wisdom can give you a knock-out victory over any satanic influence operating there, if you care to put it to use.
It Will Make life pleasant For You
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
Life can be pleasant when you begin to operate the wisdom of God. It can become so pleasant that you don’t know the meaning of problems any longer. Even when a difficulty comes your way, this wisdom tells you it’s not beyond you (1 Corinthians. 10:13).
It enables you not to magnify a problem that God calls common. The wisdom of God assures you that God will not suffer you to be tempted beyond that which you can bear; but will with the temptation provide a way of escape for you.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
That’s why you can handle any situation, no matter how difficult! You can deal with every circumstance no matter how terrible! Can you imagine going into a primary one class and you are tested on a simple mathematical sum like one plus one, and you start crying? Why should you cry, when you know the answer to the question?
Do you keep crying in front of a locked door when you hold the key in your hand? No! That is how God sees every challenge you are confronted with. He sees it as being as simple as one plus one.
Friend, no situation is above you when you are operating God’s wisdom. So, tell yourself “I can make it!” God calls those situations of your life common. If you call them special, you are making God a liar, and it is impossible for God to lie!
A sister once told me that she had no womb. She had done every test necessary and it was confirmed. I was invited to their home and here was the woman and her husband crying like babies – when you see a man and his wife crying, it must be a serious matter! But I received a powerful inspiration from John 10:10, that says:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
I opened up and told them that every manufacturer has a spare parts store for his products; so, God must have a spare womb for her in His spare parts store in heaven. I prayed, asking that a spare womb be sent from heaven, and nine months later God visited them with a baby boy!
The moment problems know that they are not recognised as important, they leave you alone. For instance, no matter how hard sickness may want to attack my body, it would be insulting itself by coming to me. Why? God, by the operation of wisdom, has given me an understanding of how to knock it out!
God’s wisdom guarantees pleasantness and peace.
It’s Your Access To The High Places
The ways of God, which is the wisdom of God, is also your access to the top. When you begin to operate by those ways, you find that you become distinguished on the earth. God so lifts you that even the sinners acknowledge that you have left them behind. By reason of the proofs you hold in your hands, they will have no choice but to come and learn the ways of God from you.
For instance, by the time they don’t hear the noise of quarrelling and fighting in your home anymore, and they see your Family smiling and prospering, they will come to ask what your secret is.
That is the reason, I believe, why the world is neck deep in problems today: so they can recognise where the answers are – in the Church!
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
That means God is committed to expounding His ways to His people this end-time. And as He does, He will also cause their covenant colours to emerge, thereby commanding great attention among the sinners. Understanding the ways of God therefore will make you outstanding on the earth.
Friend, wisdom will establish you on the high places of the earth, and bring you to prominence. It is a principal tool God will use to establish the Church this end time, and as you plug into it, you too will be established!
The Wisdom of God Is Peaceful
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable…
The wisdom from above also ensures that you enjoy supernatural rest. It releases to you peace of mind, peace in your body, peace in your place of work, peace everywhere!
