Pt. 1 Lesson 16 – The Wise – by Oleg Remez, translated by Irina Narivonchik
Today we have an interesting lesson, so be especially attentive. Today's lesson is called 'The Wise.' The Wise. Let's, so that you understand the content of this word, and what significance is put into it, I would like to recall a few key moments tied to the Wisdom of God. The first thing I would like to recall—and I emphasize this often—that the Wisdom of God, in scripture, this is not wisdom that needs to be understood. Frequently christians apply enormous effort to understand what is written in it, in the book of Proverbs or other books of Godly wisdom—but Godly Wisdom does not pursue such a Goal. First of All: the Wisdom of God which is noted in scripture, that is written into scripture, is given by God so that each one of us would put it into our minds. The Goal of the Wisdom of God is to make each Godly creation—specifically, Man—to correctly understand and analyze everything going on around us. In other words, the wisdom of God that is contained in scriptures, when you put it into your mind, it becomes the eyes of your soul and also a light. Scriptures say “In your light, I see light.” every person, in actuality sees not with their eyes—the eyes are simply what passes information. In actuality, you see by the content of your mind. This is why we see all objects differently. We look at one and the same object, but see it differently. Not because we are different, but because the content of our minds—is different. Simply different. Therefore, while the content of your mind is filled by the Wisdom of God, then I can tell you for sure—you will see any object with God's eyes. You will now see it as God sees it, not you. And everything else—you will be hearing it this way, and accepting it this way, and understanding it this way. So someone will look at another person and will see an enemy, --and someone will look at another person and will see in him a transition to a higher level. You might say “brother Oleg, how is such a thing possible?” very possible. Saul saw Goliath, and saw a problem “oh, this is the end of us!” David saw Goliath, and said “What will be given to the one who will defeat him? -a wife, and freedom from taxes—Oh!? Great!--in other words, the wise see a problem, and see the solution of THEIR problems. But, in actuality, that's not him! I am simply opening up certain aspects. Therefore, wisdom is not intended that you understand it. Wisdom of God says, “turn to me and I will anoint you. I will make you capable to understand and accept” that's why she asks “how long will fools hate knowledge?”. Do not attempt to understand wisdom. Wisdom of God is that what needs to be input, and input into your mind. That's why in the previous lesson I said –to listen to the book of Proverbs day and night. Listen! Listen! Listen! The issue is not that you will learn the by heart, the important thing is the SPIRIT that dwells in the book of Proverbs, you hear? The SPIRIT. The Anointing.
Scripture says, Jesus says “my words are SPIRIT” the word of God, the word of Godly Wisdom carries the spirit of Godly wisdom—naturally, the spirit of Wisdom of God will be creating something in your life. Tell me, how can you see if a piece of paper is clean? When you put it beside a dirty paper. Likewise, you can see a dirty one if a clean one is beside it. How can you see if there is darkness? When there is light beside it. How can you see Foolishness? When Wisdom is nearby. Therefore, the more you will be filling up your mind with the Wisdom of God, the less Foolishness will remain in it. Consequently, many things will be simply disappearing from your life. Simply disappearing. But disappearing, they will be replaced with something—of course Wisdom. So I will note once again, that the Wisdom of God is there to renew your minds with. This is the first thing I would like to note. The second thing I would like to note: that man, looking at some object, always sees by the content of his mind. I already spoke about this. So God, in scripture, emphasizes that we RENEW OUR MINDS to know God's will—his good, pleasing and perfect will. And if we take this scripture, and take a tour of the book of Jeremiah, then God says, through Jeremiah that his will is “to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.” and if we take this scripture and take a tour of the book of Proverbs, then the wisdom of God says, “my ways are pleasant, and all my paths are peace.” in other words, step by step we can tour and see that the Wisdom of God does not contain evil in any of its manifestations—we talked about this in the previous lesson. Therefore, I will be recalling certain moments out of that today.
So, I recalled that, what is tied to the Wisdom of God—the short version—oh, the Deep of the wisdom of God.--therefore, no matter how much we study it, there will Always be something to learn, to study. Ok. Today, we will be looking at the subject, “the Wise”
prior to going into the study of “the Wise”, I want to give you an example: imagine that you bought a DVD. You came home, put it into your DVD Player, and what do you think? What appeared on the Screen? That, what was inside the monitor? Or that what is on the Disk? On the disk of course. On the monitor appears that, what is contained on the Disk. Tell me, when you bought the disk, could you see what was on it? No. So, you bought the disk—but the hidden, secret, was revealed through the application of the system connected to the monitor. And you didn't know what was on the disk until you SAW it. Why did I say this? I am leading you to an important moment—your body is like the monitor—which reveals the content of your spirit, as well as the content of your mind. So the subject, “the Wise” is specific in that we will not be talking so much about the WISE—but of the Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the Flesh of Man. You hear? We will not be talking of MAN, we will be talking of the Wisdom of God Manifesting itself through a certain person. No one is born wise. No one is born foolish. Wisdom comes from above, Foolishness is ignorance of the ways of God, everyone is born with a title and calling. In regards to wisdom and foolishness, it is what we acquire here, on earth. I also already spoke of this. The Wisdom of God is SPIRIT, and foolishness is also spirit. Therefore, if a person is called Wise—listen carefully—then, in actuality, he hasn't done anything to earn it. In actuality, a person we call “wise” is actually a person who allowed the Wisdom of God to direct him. You hear? It is not by his merit. And a person we call “foolish” in actuality, this is not his merit either. He is simply obedient to the Spirit of Foolishness. Therefore, a person we call “wise”, in actuality we see through him the manifestation of wisdom of God. And a person who we call foolish, in actuality, we see through him the manifestation of spirit of foolishness. Like Jesus said, finishing up his sermon on mount--24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man notice that he didn't say that this person was wise. He said he is LIKE. In other words, Doing this, he behaves like a wise man. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man he didn't call either of these Foolish, and he didn't call either of them wise—he said that they are LIKE, you hear? They are LIKE. I will recall once again—no one is born foolish, no one is born wise. Man is born with a title and calling. Both wisdom, and foolishness—is what, as a result, man begins to Manifest. And what he manifests? Each one of us sees in the lives of others.
Therefore, today's subject is not directed at identifying The Wise, and......?
today's subject is to identify Wisdom—and to see foolishness. Because, to see foolishness, there needs to be sharply contrasting wisdom. To see foolishness, sharply contrasting wisdom needs to be manifested. If you see in your life a manifestation of wisdom, then that's nothing you earned, it simply means that you are obedient. If you will be obedient to the wisdom of God, then she will always be manifesting herself through you. Therefore, in actuality, people will not be seeing You, but the Wisdom of God. The important thing is that you acknowledge this—because people will come to you and say “oh, you are sooo wise” and, perhaps, your nose will lift a bit—and if people will say this often, then your back will bend backwards so much, that it will be difficult to look at your feet! So, as people will start to frequently call you “wise”—don't worry about it! It's nothing you did. In this case, you are simply not interfering the wisdom of God moving in your life. That's it. OK, i'm simply balancing out certain moments so that you would understand—if a person is called foolish, he is not to blame for this. And if a person is called wise, he is not to blame for that either. The first and the second are obedient—did you know that people are always obedient? EVERYONE is obedient, 24hours a day everyone is obedient. A foolish person is an obedient person, a wise person is an obedient person. Man was created, to be obedient 24hours a day. Of course, through his obedience, we can begin to see whom he is obedient to.
The next moment I would like to note before we go into today's lesson is: as it is written in Proverbs 21:30 There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD. THIS is why we call some things foolish, and some things wise—because everything that is from God is wisdom, and everything from satan is foolishness. But we have a beautiful example: of the manifestation of the Wisdom of God—Jesus—this is the manifestation of the Wisdom of God in the Flesh. therefore—everything—what, and how Jesus did is a manifestation of the Wisdom of God. Scripture says: before Jesus came into his calling, he grew in wisdom. Therefore, the study of the ways of the wisdom of God is also possible through JESUS. OK, I am recalling certain moments, so that we understand what we orient ourselves by.
in today's lesson, we will be looking at character aspects of the spirit of Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man. Why do I emphasize this? I don't need to emphasize this, but in either case, it's very important for a born-again believer to walk in the wisdom of God. It's very important because, without the wisdom of god, even a born-again believer could lean into extremes—I consider that the next vital step after being born again is immersion into the Wisdom of God. So that there will be a balance, so there wouldn't be extremes. Because to be born again, and not to have balance—you could still be pulled into some extreme. The wisdom of God though, will always balance out a person.
OK., beginning to look at the character aspects of the Spirit of the Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man. Consequently, everywhere where we will read the word “wise” I will right away be bringing in balance. Specifically, I would like to accent on that this is still WISDOM—but, manifesting itself through the flesh of MAN. WE will be using many scriptures, and we will work on them, to see, from various angles, the manifestation of the Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man.
Proverbs 18:15-24 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise—lets pause here, and put in the expanded version—The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the—man who allows the Wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, words and actions—seek it out. wait—he seeks it out because he thinks that knowledge is good? No. he seeks it out because the spirit of Godly Wisdom tells him that it is important for him. (Hosea 4:6) God's people are destroyed from lack of what? Lack of knowledge. Not because God hides knowledge, but because they reject knowledge—they consider that what they know is enough. This is why people get held up in first grade—for 12 years, in grade 2—for 12 years, and why? Because they consider that what they know is enough. Some believers have never left the first grade, and have now created groups there. You cannot remain on one level. “Woe to the people whose king is a youth” You Can Not. This is a curse! Immaturity needs to be only in the moment of relationship with God—we are always children in the arms of our father. But immaturity in the mind is very dangerous. Therefore, never remain immature. This is why the ears of wise seek out knowledge. Proverbs 1:5 let the wise listen or let the man who allows the Wisdom of God to formulate the direction of his thoughts, direction of his words, direction of his actions—and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance—its amazing that a wise person, is a person who always progresses. Oh, this is powerful—today I will share with you certain aspects, specifically tied to the wisdom of God, how it moves. The wisdom of God is not a wisdom DOWN, you hear? The paths of the wise are going where? To the top. Oh, this brings Joy! Proverbs 16:23 The hearts of the wise let's pause. I would like for you to read the proverbs of Solomon this way! The hearts—or the Spirit of the Man, which allows the Wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, direct his words, direct his actions—make their mouths prudent, notice what makes? He doesn't make! “oh, brother Oleg, I don't know how I could talk so colorfully—Well, Don't Think! --well, what am I to do? Sleep in headphones, and listen to proverbs!” when you fill up, it will pour out by itself! And here people think—how to make nicely make something up, how to beautifully say something— “where do you get such artful words?” Where I need to! From within wisdom. I am opening up ways, how to, not thinking about it, allow that, what has long been thought out by God. I will read again-let this penetrate—The heart of the wise—did you notice what? Spirit of the Wise—The spirit of the wise, the ones that allow the wisdom of God to direct him, make their mouths prudent. And listen—a very important scripture—I could, with this scripture, teach for a whole week. And their lips promote (I will be using the russian version) instruction, And here I'm opening up how wisdom multiplies. and knowledge is in his lips. One of the very important aspects of Godly Wisdom, is that the more you give away, the more you receive. It's important to share Godly wisdom, you hear? So, ones giving suggestions or ones that share, discuss, seek—they have wisdom. OK. This is an amazing deep of the wisdom of God. Let's go further. Today we are making an interesting immersion.
Proverbs 15:2 The tongue of the wise or the tongue of the one-we'll say-the tongue of the person who is directed and led by the Wisdom of Godannounces good knowledge. Where do you think he gets this knowledge? Out of Wisdom. What type knowledge does he spread? Good. Perhaps, on the outside, these knowledges were not very good-but the Wisdom of God sets them before you in such a way, that they are Good. GOOD. And I will connect this with-it fits right in here, Proverbs 15:7 The lips of the wise or the lips of the person who allows the Wisdom of God to direct him, spread knowledge. What kind of knowledge does he spread? Good. Not spreading bad knowledge, but GOOD knowledge. Therefore, even if they heard that there is a criminal in the neighbourhood, they do not spread such knowledge. Even if they heard that something is going on somewhere—some problem, in some country—swine or some avian flu—they don't spread such knowledge. They right away say, “Great! We now have a prayer subject—let's pray, about this, about those, about that neighborhood--Why? What are we going to be praying about?--so that not a single weapon of satan would be successful against the inhabitants of that neighborhood. 'Tell me whats going on! I live in that neighborhood! …. in other words, they present everything CORRECTLY, you hear? They don't begin to spread bad report, because the spirit of the Wisdom of God, it says-this isn't Correct. This sows Fear... and to sow fear is to serve satan. OK, let's continue-we are looking at the Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man.
Proverbs 10:13 Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning, or-wisdom is found on the lips of the ones who allow the wisdom of God to direct him. On his lips is found what he is directed by. From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Of course, if in your spirit is Wisdom of God, then Wisdom will be flowing out of you. You know what interferes the flow of the Wisdom of God out of your spirit? The content of your mind. We got SO USED TO BEING DIRECTED by the content of our minds, that some time needs to be spent simply blocking—but you will learn, if you persist.
Proverbs 10:14 The wise or the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him stores up knowledge, you hear? Or he values knowledge. You know, you need to value knowledge. Actually, everything you don't value—you will not have it for long. Learn to value knowledge. What does it mean, value knowledge? It means-to know how to keep them. Do you know, How Much Value the contents of those archives that are hidden somewhere? Of various organizations-- oh, archiving, in its time—it was a whole science. Today, of course, it's simplified- I sometimes ask christians, “Where do you write your prophesies? Where do you keep them?” and he shrugs-”Wait! These are revelations from God!” Well, if God needs it, he will remind me.- but you know, glory be to God, that in regards to the prophets-the prophets didn't have this approach. Consequently we are reading and small prophets, and big prophets-because, speaking to prophets, and instructing prophets, he told them, “write it down.” the Wise store up knowledge. In my time, when I was learning to store up knowledge-I wrote them all down. And when I had collected 2 bagfulls of papers, I understood that I was doing something wrong... because to systemize all this knowledge would take YEARS. I understood that the approach itself, towards knowledge, needed to change. And I understood that knowledge needs to be systemized Then, when you fix it-then, I aquired a need-that I have a computer, where I could input, systemize, and on and on and on.. and for today, I have a Huge Base, where I systemize all knowledge, and if I get a revelation, I immediately put it into it's correct place. That's it. And if someone asks me, “How do you look at this?” I immediately went in, and took out a knowledge. The Wise Store up knowledge, they don't treat it carelessly. OK. We can make the following conclusion in the first part, because we will be moving in parts, opening up different aspects of wisdom of God. The Wise is not careless to what is going on in his life and around him, he is teachable to change and to effect change and he strains to be a blessing. Actually, the wisdom of God Always teaches man to be a blessing. A very important moment. Today I will be underlining these corners especially.
Let's look at the next manifestation of the Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man. Proverbs 11:30 The wise or the person who allows the wisdom of God to formulate the direction of his thoughts, direction of his words, direction of his actions attracts souls. You hear? A good approach, right? Perhaps he didn't even want this, but he attracts. People are attracted to him. Actually, people are not attracted to him. They are attracted to that, which comes out of his spirit. Please understand, if the wise are attracted to the wise,--I will explain. What do you think? Who will hug a wet person? Another wet person. And a dry person? Will be hugged by a dry person. Therefore, wisdom attracts those who like wisdom, and foolishness attracts those who like foolishness. See how well you are understanding! These are important moments! Therefore, the more you immerse into wisdom, the less.. around you of... you understand yourself of who. “brother Oleg, I was wondering-when I started to read the book of proverbs, everyone left me!” wait, wait! The most interesting part is ahead of you! That's why Solomon said, (Ecclesiastes 1:18) For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; because you basically become isolated for a period of time-no one understands you. “brother Oleg, I thought that if I would immerse into the wisdom of God, everyone would begin to understand me, but now, No One understands me!” well, No. the ones that don't understand you are the ones that never understand you anyway—but ones will begin to join you who will understand you, don't worry! Don't worry! This is the normal process. So, (Proverbs 11:30) The wise attract souls. Not him of course, but the wisdom of God—it always attracts, you hear? ATTRACTIVE. Wisdom is Attractive, and not the person himself. The person may be not that physically appealing, but wisdom attracts.
Proverbs 12:18 the tongue of the wise, or the tongue of the man who allows the Wisdom of God to direct him, brings healing. Good word, right? What does it mean, brings healing? The Wisdom of God, it always shows how to SOLVE a problem. Actually, the Wisdom of God always takes your attention & focus AWAY from the problem. This is amazing. There are people who,.... start to exaggerate a problem, blow it out of proportion. But a wise person says, “Why are you looking at it? You will never exit a problem if you will always look only at the problem. Let's look at the solution and talk about the solution! “What are you talking about?! Look around you... see what's going on!” how much can we keep talking about it? We already Know what's going on! Let's talk about how to exit the problem, about the solution... so there are both kinds of people. If David was talking about how to solve the problem, then Saul was saying, “That's it! This is the end for us!” that's it. That's it. I just want you to see these moments. Around me there are people that when you talk to them... I understand what directs them, but I don't get upset with them, because God opens up eyes not so that we would hammer nails into them, but God opens up eyes so that we understand how to build relationships with people. If I see that he focuses his attention on the problem, I understand what level he is at, and what he is currently directed by-for the most part. Therefore, from my side-i will be, of course, bringing pressure to displace this foolishness, because this will not bring him to anything good. If you will focus on the problem, you will never get out of it. NEVER. This is what satan works on. So that you would SEE ONLY the problem. So, the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Proverbs 13:14 The teaching of the wise or the teaching of the man who allows the wisdom of God to direct his mouth is a fountain of life, turning a person from the snares of death. Wisdom ALWAYS turns a person from death. Whoever may tell me that God will send 'that, that and that' I don't believe it—because wisdom that comes from above is good, and it ALWAYS turns a person from the snares of death.
Proverbs 29:8 the wise or those who allow the wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, words, and actions turn away anger. There are people who stir up anger, and there are people who turn it away. Of course, if these people stir up anger, it's understandable who directs him, they are not to blame, you hear? They are not to blame. Recently, a sister came up to me and says “brother Oleg, what can I do? I hate people. I tell her, 'it's not you!' she says, 'what do you mean, not me?” “it's not you, it's who you are listening to-he hates people.” “I don't understand.” I am drawing a line here—I say, “you CAN'T hate them. To hate them, you need to know what to hate them for, so you CAN'T hate them, but the one who is in you hates them. There is one who will teach you to love them--” “holy spirit!” I tell her. “turn to the holy spirit, talk to him, ask him to begin to manifest love for people through you.” “and that's it?” “and that's it.” so you're not to blame! Do not blame yourself! You simply allowed, you are simply obedient, but not to the one who you should listen to, that's all. The WISE turn away anger. He helps a person to not pay attention to the problem. Recently, I received an important for me-revelation. I was talking with a sister, and she was seriously upset with one brother-and I called her, like the pastor, to, let's say, deal with the situation. And when I was talking to her, I saw that her standard of expectation for that brother was SO high-- and the spirit of God gives me words that became, for myself, a serious instruction and help. And I told her these words: “sister, do not raise your standard of expectation—raise your standard of mercy” your standard of mercy always needs to be greater than your standard of expectations, then you will never get upset with anyone. Oh, this was such a powerful revelation for me! And, really! She viewed everyone in leadership—so straight and narrow, that you could use them as a ruler—ugh, shining examples, SO holy—but I tell her, my dear one, who cut off the ear? Who wanted the fire from heaven? The disciples of Jesus! Apostles! And even so... so, let our standard of mercy always be greater than our standard of expectation. The Wise turn away anger—of course not him, but WISDOM through him, you hear? WISDOM through him. OK, let's go on. Oh, I like this Proverb especially—this is a proverb for businessmen. But it is of course for everyone, but it's deep.
Ecclesiastes 7:4 The heart of the wise or the heart of the man who allows the wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, words and actions is in the house of mourning, let me give you the expanded version here, and you will be able to move further yourself in this. Wisdom makes a man capable of seeing NEEDS, you hear? Needs. Why is he in the house of mourning? Because there is need there. And if there is need there, then the wisdom of God will teach you how to fill it, you hear? Oh, how this blesses me! Because, in actuality, people understood that they need to SEE needs, People have learned to SEE needs, but they haven't understood one thing—that if you see a need, then the reason you see it is because you have the answer as to how to fill it—otherwise you would not have seen it. Oh, may everyone hear this! Let this help direct you further—if you saw a need somewhere, then i'm telling you—I'm giving you a guarantee, on the basis of the Wisdom of God, that you ALREADY have the answer as to how to fill it. In scripture this is clearly seen—there is a person who started to cry, when he saw that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed. Why did he cry and no one else did? Because God anointed him to rebuild the Walls of Jerusalem. I am not going to go into all the nuances right now, but the wise is in the house of mourning. The wise sees needs, and knows how to fill them. OK, glory to God... Beautiful Proverb.
Ecclesiastes 10:12 Words from the mouth of the wise or, words from the mouth of a person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him are gracious,Good word! Because they spill light—Wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man.
The Wise rejected his life and position—he accepted the life and position of him, who knows everything. He allows God to live through him carrying his will and his peace—in other words, WHOLENESS. Or, this person allowed the wisdom of God to flow through him. This needs to be learned as well, this is not complicated! This is not complicated. In the course of your life, you will understand—that what is in your mind, clutters up your life. But what is in your spirit—will always help you get out of any situation. OK, let's go on.
Proverbs 3:35 The wise or the man who allows the wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, words and actions inherit glory, let me pause here, and bring in some correctives—because the word 'glory' in this context, needs to be viewed through the book Isaiah. In Isaiah, It says: You will forget the shame of your youth. What glory or what shame is talked about here? The glory of God is the spirit of God in our lives. The Glory of God is fulfillment of the will of God for our life. So the Wise, they walk in what they were created for on this earth. This is where their glory lies. The wise inherit that, what they are called for. They walk in this. They become themselves. You hear? I was thinking once, about worshiping God—because I understood that the Sunday and other group-type worshiping for a few hours and a day or a few days was somehow not quite right, because in scripture it says that we need to worship God every day, 24 hours a day. On the other hand, I understood that to do that, I would have to leave everything else. Why? Because this came out of my limited mind—you hear? So I simply asked this question of myself—of course not myself, but the one who is in me. “how can I worship 24hrs a day? And you know, the answer came right away—become yourself. In other words, when you are that—what he created you to be—in that, you worship him. This is how Jesus lived. He did what he was called to do, and in this he worshiped God every second and every minute.--obedience is the highest form of worship..... the wise inherit glory.
Proverbs 25:27 It is not good to eat much honey; So to seek one’s own glory is not glory this applies to the same thing. The wise do not seek, they inherit glory.
Proverbs 14:3 the lips of the wise or the lips of the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him—consequently, he doesn't talk, but wisdom talks through him- will preserve them. Like it says in Ecclesiastes—time to be silent, time to talk. I know so many situations, that simply, if a person would have kept quiet—families would have remained whole. Simply stayed quiet—didn't react. You know, one—pouring fire, and the other—if the other would have simply kept quiet, the family would have been preserved. But no, he said everything that he thought. And that's it, end of the family. Scripture says, “time to be silent, time to talk—everything has it's time” and the wisdom of God knows the time. It knows the time. If you will be directed by the wisdom of God, you will preserve that, what others simply couldn't have preserved. And of course, you would have turned away that, what others don't bother.
Proverbs 14:8 The wisdom of the prudent or the wisdom of the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him--- understands his way. Not ours, but his way. You will show me the path of life. The wisdom of God, she will always direct you to yours. This is a large subject, almost the entire second part.
Proverbs 14:16 A wise man departs from evil. Good proverb, right? He doesn't throw himself on a shadow, he knows when to throw himself, and when he can stand. But in actuality, it's not him that knows—but the Wisdom of God that is in him knows. The wise man departs from evil.
Proverbs 15:24 a good verse The way of life for the wise, or the way of life for the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him, winds upward,you hear? Upward. That he may turn away from hell below. In other words, when man allows the wisdom of God to direct him, he will have—perhaps it will not be speedy—but he will have progress. Constant. So, if I see in the life of a person, and it is so crooked... I in no way get upset—of course he needs help. If currently, your life is in regress, and not progress, don't get upset! Tell me, what needs to be done so that what you see in the mirror changes? “brother Oleg, change the mirror of course, what, you didn't know that?” OK, then, what do you need to do if your CD player is playing something you don't like? “oh, well, pffff.. of course throw out the CD player!” no, you need to change the CD. If you don't like what is happening in your life, you need to, first of all, change not what's in it, but whats up here (point to head) and that's it. So, don't hurry to change your husband, wife, and so on... change the content of your mind, and everything else will change. The way of life for the wise winds upward.
Proverbs 17:24 Wisdom is before him who has understanding, a wise person is not a guerrilla, “i am wise but only for myself” or “i believe in my heart” “i am wise in my heart” and on the outside... he is … no, the wise lets wisdom manifest, everywhere. Everywhere. It simply flows from him. You know, a wise person is similar to a wet sponge—you just need to apply pressure, and everyone around him gets wet. So, if you don't want to listen to wisdom, it would be better not to touch him. That's all. I am just giving you certain moments so that you would understand that if you will saturate yourselves in the wisdom of God—Ooooh, what will begin in your life. From you, wisdom will flow, because nothing else will flow from you—well, depending of course, on how much you fill up. Remember where it says, in Proverbs 8 “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old; and some verses later, (Proverbs 8:30) Then I was the artisan at his side. She directed him. That is why wisdom is before him who has understanding.
Proverbs 29:11 the wise or the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct his thoughts, words and actions restrain their anger. It's not him that restrains his anger! “brother Oleg, I don't know how to restrain myself!” I am telling you how to restrain yourselves. It's not him that restrains his anger, the wisdom of God restrains anger—not him! You yourself—will not be able to control yourselves. We are created to reveal the secret, you hear? There is nothing hidden that will not come to light. Therefore, wisdom will make you capable to restrain yourselves. “brother Oleg, where did the anger come from, then?” this is leftovers. You know, that was somewhere in some spot that hasn't been swept out yet. Of course, we are learning not to be angry—this also is a process.
Ecclesiastes 2:14 The wise oh, this is great. A beautiful proverb. The Wise or the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him, have eyes in their heads. Oh, everyone understood—glory be to God. I will explain—you probably heard such expressions: “well, I can't do it that way, what will everyone think?” “and what will they think?” “and what will they say?” “and them?” in other words, his eyes are Not in his head—but perhaps in some organization, or some people, grandma... “What will my relatives say?” or the person does not live by his eyes, he lives by someone elses.... “oh, what will they think?” “what will they say?” “what, what, what?” but the Wise have eyes in their heads. He allows the wisdom of God to look through his eyes. Beautiful proverb.
Ecclesiastes 8:1 Who is like the wise? Who knows the explanation of things? A person’s wisdom brightens their face and changes its hard appearance. You know, for some reason, the “Wise” in brackets—I said in BRACKETS—wisdom, it BRIGHTENS a face. It doesn't make the person look serious... the more wise, the more serious the face. No, actually in this regard I will be silent for now, we will be talking about that during the next lesson. The wise person, he is smiling, he is happy with life, but he is smiling and happy with wisdom. Because joy in the Lord is our strength, and in joy there is assignment—this is the fruit of the holy spirit. This is a very important manifestation. Remember, when David became serious because Absalom was killed? A captain comes up to him and says, “no, no no.. you can't be like this! It's holiday! And you.... this way everyone will run off, you can't be like this! Manifest joy! Do you hear this? We are celebrating—remember when you decided to establish a family. You sent invitations to everyone... and told everyone! But here you established a family with the Lord, and... silence. What is this guerrilla brigade? A person’s wisdom brightens their face and changes its hard appearance.
Ecclesiastes 10:2 a very interesting verse. Be attentive, because it is also very deep—out of the same series as 'the wise have eyes in their heads' The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. This is a deep proverb in itself, and if I just talk on this proverb alone, we wouldn't have enough time left today... but I will simply explain—a wise person, he always holds a specific, Clear position... like scripture says, let you words be yes yes, no no.. and anything beyond this is from the evil one. So the wise, he takes a certain position. Even if the whites come, he doesn't adopt the position of the whites—changes hats—he always takes a clear position... even if he gets mocked for this position, he still stands in this position. Jesus taught this... But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. In other words, Decide. Take a side. Take a right side... “brother oleg, how would I take the right side?” take a look at how the right act. Jesus is our standard and image in Everything. We don't need to make anything up. Even if your relatives, close friends and acquaintances don't act according to this standard, Still take the right position, and that's it. You must take A SIDE. And I recommend to you, take Jesus as the standard and image in Everything, and you will never go wrong. The heart of the wise inclines to the right, on the side of righteousness.
The wise is uncompromising, he puts everything through the wisdom of God. In other words, he refuses to think for himself. He allows the wisdom of God to think through him.
Proverbs 14:33 Wisdom reposes in the heart of the discerning. What does it reposes mean? It means that when it entered, it doesn't feel like a transient, like without a permanent place of residence. She's not living out of suitcases. She, as she entered, she feels needed. It's not a case of tug-of-war... today wisdom, tomorrow foolishness, and the next day again something different—Wisdom reposes or has a certain peace in the heart of the discerning. She is home there.
Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart or the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him are called discerning, (благоразумным-ум во благо--wise-mind for the benefit of) scripture says, (Добрый разум доставляет приятность)--a Good mind gives pleasure. So, if you are upset by what is going on in your life, and legally at that, I will say once again—you need to renew your mind! So Apply effort! Renew your minds, so that you will learn to see everything with the eyes of the wisdom of God.
Ecclesiastes 8:5 the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure. Oh, this is a powerful proverb. The wise heart knows, not because HE knows, but the wise heart knows because wisdom knows. In other words, if you allow the wisdom of God to direct your thoughts, words and actions, then you will know the proper time and procedure. Everything has it's time, everything under the sun. you will know certain statues, and the statues of the kingdom of God will be very easy for you, not complicated. The parable of the sower will become very near and dear to you, the rules for spiritual laws will become very close to you and the parable of the sower.. I mean, on the whole—will become the eyes of your soul for everything.
Ecclesiastes 7:12 Wisdom gives life to those who have it. You know why wisdom gives life? Because God, in his wisdom planned life. Therefore, wisdom gives life to those who have it. What does 'have it' mean? WHO APPLIES it. Having it means using it. It doesn't say who owns it, but who uses it, applies it. The word 'have' in the bible context, also means apply or use it. Therefore, wisdom gives life... or in the life of that person manifests life... true life, to those who use or apply it.
Proverbs 21:22 The wise the person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him go up against the city of the mighty you hear, ANY city, ANY.. no matter where you live.. go up against the city of the mighty and pull down the stronghold in which they trust. For the wise, it absolutely doesn't make a difference where he lives.. because the wisdom of God always shows him the weak and strong sides of any place. Good? Of course it is good. Wisdom Always illuminates the areas that need light. Always. So you will always be seeing with the eyes of God, not your own eyes.
Ecclesiastes 7:19 Wisdom makes one wise person more powerful than ten rulers in a city. You hear what kind of position manifests? Wisdom makes one wise person more powerful than ten rulers-in other words, it doesn't matter what they are like. You have that, which will show the weak and the strong side of any place.
We read certain aspects tied to the wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man. Now, let's put in balance. Balance in the direction, that it is good when a person is wise. When a person allows the wisdom of God to direct him. But you know, the more opportunities, the more demands. Opportunities are, first of all, demands. In other words, the more wisdom you have, the more is asked of you. So, you will not be able to hide—with wisdom, but you will also not be able to hide from responsibilities in wisdom. So, the following are recommendations for ones moving in wisdom already:
Ecclesiastes 10:1 As dead flies give perfume a bad smell, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. You know, If a person moves in foolishness, and he made another foolish decision, everyone will simply smile. But, if a person moves in wisdom, moves in wisdom, moves in wisdom, moves in wisdom... and everyone already notices his wisdom-and he suddenly makes one tiny folly—that's it. It's harder to recover. Therefore, a person who starts to move in wisdom... he needs to be so attentive to Any of His Actions, and attentive in the wisdom of God. I will recall—these are very important things, very important for you, as for those whom people will be looking at. You know, scripture says that All creation is looking at us-the whole world is looking at us. They are waiting for a revelation from us, so, taking the position of wisdom, be attentive—do not allow YOURSELF to give direction to your thoughts, words and actions—let the wisdom of God to work over each of you.
Ecclesiastes 7:7 Extortion turns a wise person into a fool, and a gift corrupts the heart. We are not against gifts. But, be careful!
Ecclesiastes 7:16 Do not be overly righteous, nor be overly wise—why destroy yourself? In other words, hold yourself in balance. Balance.
What is the advantage of wisdom before foolishness? Let's read:
Ecclesiastes 2:13-14 Then I saw that wisdom is better than folly, As light is better than darkness. In other words, a person who walks in foolishness walks in the darkness. Or, I call this soul blindness. A person is soul blind. Tell me, can you demand from a soul blind person the same things you would demand from someone who sees? Of course not! So, please-lower your expectations. “but, why is he not the same as all husbands? Or why is she not the same as all wives? .. like all wise ones... because he is not... but today is not that subject. I wanted to right away jump into another subject, but it's better if I don't! We have an interesting part coming up. Then I saw that wisdom is better than folly, as light is better than darkness. 14 The wise man’s eyes are in his head, But the fool walks in darkness. You hear? But the fool walks in darkness. The word 'foolish' is everything that is not in wisdom. There is that what is in wisdom, and there is that what is Not in wisdom—that is foolishness. That's it. I will remind once again: renewing of the mind is not a suggestion. It is-without which, you will not be able to walk in the light. In the Old Testament, God didn't demand from his people what he demands from us. Why? Because in the Old Testament, God only demanded one thing from his people: obedience of the Law. They couldn't understand anything out of all this—they didn't have the holy spirit. This is why in the Old Testament, God only demanded one thing—don't break the Law. In the New Testament, we have considerably higher demands—but opportunities are immeasurably more! Because the Holy Spirit is in your spirit, and scripture says that the Holy Spirit gives all wisdom and understanding. Did you know, that in your spirit is all necessary wisdom for eternity. You hear? The wisdom of God, which planned everything... is in your spirit. As apostle Paul says, (1 Corinthians 2:6) We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. The Wisdom of God is in you. “brother Oleg, then why don't I hear it?” because you are listening to another wisdom. You always listen to someone. “brother Oleg, how do I hear the Wisdom of God?” I am telling you—you simply need to immerse yourself in it. Out of a cup of water pours out what is in the cup--”brother Oleg, what if nothing pours out of it?” then either there is a little bit of something or nothing in it. If nothing pours out of you—of wisdom, then that says that there is very little of it there, because you HAVE this, this just needs to be multiplied. Pour in, pour in, pour in, pour in, pour in... and it will flow.
We have discussed certain important moments tied to the wisdom of God manifesting itself through the flesh of Man. Now let's look at it in practice: we will be looking at Solomon. A very bright personality in regards to the wisdom that manifested through him, because there was, of course, no one brighter than Jesus.
Lets first of all read how Solomon got wisdom in the first place-this is an important moment, because God does not have 'favorites'.
1 Kings 3:5-7 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, “oh, God didn't appear to me” Yes he did—otherwise you wouldn't have repented! You repented? Yes... then he appeared! and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” 6 Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day. 7 “Now, LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child … When I read this, I understand that it's not Solomon who is praying, “I am only a little child...” of course it's not him praying. I know that it's the holy spirit praying through Solomon. Why is the Holy Spirit praying through Solomon? Because God promised King David that his son would be King. Why did I say this? Because God promised Jesus that everyone who accepts him would be Whole. That they would have sufficient wisdom. “brother Oleg, you would like to say that as the wisdom of God was praying through Solomon, the wisdom of God will pray through me?” oh, didn't you read that (1 Corinthians 2:12) What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us? Didn't you read (John 16:13) But the Spirit of truth, will guide you into all the truth? Didn't you read that if (Romans 8:26) We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. The prayer room is not where we are supposed to pray, it's where he Will pray. Pray through you. He knows what you have a need of before you ask. Solomon also didn't know what to pray about, but God, fulfilling his promise to David leads Solomon in prayer—because the Spirit of God knows what a King Needs! Let's find out what a King needs--(1 Kings 3:9) So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?” in other words, he asked for that, about which wisdom says (Proverbs 8:15) By me kings reign He didn't know what to ask for, but the wisdom of God directed him specifically to that, what a King Needs. Wisdom of God. And how did God answer him? He gave it to him! You hear? “brother Oleg, what if I ask for it?” then God will show you that you already have it. Because you already have All wisdom. Jesus became for you wisdom and understanding. You just need to APPLY IT. That's where the question is. That's why, whoever lacks wisdom, let him ask the Lord. Use what you Already Have.
Now, let's take a look at how the wisdom of God began to manifest through Solomon. Oh, this is very interesting—because Solomon asked for wisdom, and God gave him wisdom, and the Wisdom of God began to manifest through him. The first visible manifestation of wisdom through Solomon—Solomon got a desire to build the House of God. This is not Solomon's desire, this is direction of the wisdom of God. “brother Oleg, wait, wait, wait... what, I am supposed to build a house of God?!” No, I am saying that YOU are the temple of the Holy spirit living within. The first thing that the holy spirit will begin to do in your life, is bring order to the state of your spirit. Once, a sister comes up to me and goes: “brother Oleg, the holy spirit wants me to renovate my apartment--” I say, OK... I haven't seen her since. Some time after, another one comes up and says, “brother Oleg, God wants me to renovate my apartment....” and suddenly, the holy spirit tells me, 'they're not thinking of the right apartment' God says to renovate here (point to self) but they thought of the physical apartment. And I see, that specifically, the first thing the spirit of the wisdom of God induces is to clean up the House of God. In the Spirit. “brother Oleg, how can you clean up there?” there are ways of cleaning up—of course this has to do with renewing the mind, of course this has to do with declaration of the mouth—because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, we need to learn to watch what flows out of your blessed mouths. This is a whole process... we need to declare a spring cleaning, and cart all the garbage out!
So, the first thing induced by the spirit of God or the spirit of the wisdom of God --1 Kings 5:5 I intend, therefore, to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God, a beautiful intention. Each one of us is a Temple of the Holy spirit living within. Therefore, let's build God's House. Scripture says, everyone watch what you build out of, because it will become known, or visible. therefore—what are you building out of? gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. “brother Oleg, what fire?” around is fire! Flames all around you, so if you just built something out of hay... buh, it burned.... again, built something... buh, there it goes. So, be attentive, out what you are building. Build out of the word of God.
Desire number 2 that the spirit of Godly Wisdom induced in Solomon-1 Kings 6:38 In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it.
1 Kings 7:1 It took Solomon thirteen years, however, to complete the construction of his palace the next desire that the spirit of Godly Wisdom induced in Solomon is to build a house for Solomon himself. God will not leave your living place untouched. The spirit of Godly wisdom will begin to show influence on what is In your living space, because much of what is in your living space for today is formulated by the spirit of antichrist.
Did you know that the planning of our apartments is the planning of the spirit of antichrist? I will explain—show me a prayer room in your apartment planning.... it's not there. Do you know, if you take the books of the Old Testament, the people of Israel were formed around the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle was central. The prayer room needs to be central in our living space. Central.... but it doesn't exist! There's a kitchen .. which is central, and we have shoved a couch in there already—Everything is around the kitchen! Bedroom, living room, everything around the kitchen. This is serious! This speaks of something. That's why, the spirit of God will be working on your living space so that you would have a place where you work with scriptures, where you have everything... the spirit of God will be leading you, this is also serious. Christians leave this without attention, but the spirit of God will not! I came to visit a sister once, and asked her to show me where she keeps all her tapes, I want to see all your material' … she takes a box from under her bed full of tapes and CD's...! she took all her tapes, CD's, and shoved them all into a box. Imagine if the holy spirit moves her to listen to a specific tape—she won't find it! Simply won't find it! So the spirit of God wants us to have everything, so that we could enter, and he could show us right away what to work with, where.... you need to have a specific place for all this, where the holy spirit can, at any time, take you to and show you what you need to work with. There needs to be a certain order. So, the next thing that the spirit of Godly wisdom induced Solomon to do is build the house for his life. This is a very important part—because, you need to wrestle in many things that were built in their time.
The third desire that I would like to note in the life of Solomon, and this desire is described in 1 Kings 8:5 and King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel that had gathered about him were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted.Impossible to count... but, I found a place where it describes the amount of sacrifices. I will read to you:
(1 Kings 8:63) Solomon offered a sacrifice of fellowship offerings to the LORD: twenty-two thousand cattle you probably need to gather all the cattle from Ukraine to get this! And this was a Sacrifice! Twenty-two thousand cattle and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep and goats. What do you think? Who nudged Solomon to make such sacrifices? The wisdom of God. The wisdom of God. Her ways wind upwards. The next manifestation of the wisdom of God in the life of this person was sacrifice. Sacrifice. “oh, brother Oleg, if I had something to give, I would definitely give it!” oh, don't say that! I know many such people... who, while they have $100, they say, “oh, for the Lord I will give EVERYTHING!” and when they get $100,000, they receive a new revelation, and we don't see them for a while. Therefore, if you say such words please understand—that you will have such an opportunity. These are serious things.
The sacrifices of this person, was built, first of all on his obedience to the spirit of wisdom. Of course, sacrifices are not demanded from you over what you have—that's why in scripture it says: (2 Corinthians 9:7) Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give. Listen here, (point to self) it's very important to listen to here. There are good motivators, but still listen here. However good they may be, still listen here. Your spirit, your holy spirit is in you, and you need to listen only to him no matter what kind of good motivators there may be.
The Sacrifices—was the next very important manifestation... and we can analyze, what these three desires brought Solomon. First of all, this can be seen through the queen of Sheba. Notice, that she didn't come to King Solomon with empty hands. Actually, no one came to Solomon with empty hands. Notice? You can read about this. Everyone who was coming to see King Solomon, brought with them something very valuable... what do you think? Do you think this was their own desire? no. the wisdom of God draws hearts near... but not with empty hands. This is good! We are not putting this as a goal, but please understand—this is one of the manifestations, one not minimal in importance manifestation of the wisdom of God. Like wisdom of God says, “Riches are with me”, you hear? And people are thinking up ways of how to get them.... immerse yourselves into the wisdom of God, manifest the wisdom of God, walk in the wisdom of God, and Wisdom draws hearts. Wisdom of God will not only attract riches, it will also teach you to redirect it, or allocate it correctly, so you wouldn't get weighed down by it.
The most interesting thing I would like to note out of the life of Solomon, which the wisdom of God did--(1 Kings 10:27) The king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stones you hear? Did you know that there are a lot of stones in Israel? And Stones and Silver were one price. And now I will open up the wisdom of this scripture. The wisdom of God moving in the life of a person, devalues-in the mind of the person, in his eyes—all materialistic values. In other words, a person who is directed by the wisdom of God, who has in hand materialistic values, HE owns them, not them him. Because the wisdom of God teaches—everything that owns you, you don't own. Therefore, if you want to own something, be free of it. Solomon wasn't owned by riches, so he had them. They came to him by themselves—because they didn't have authority over him. I would like you to see this. The wisdom of God fully devalues materialistic things, and materialistic things become a resource that are simply directed and used as they were intended. That's why the wise is in the house of the mourning.
I was opening up today to you the Wise person, or a person who allows the wisdom of God to direct him. This is a person who simply allows the wisdom of God to formulate the direction of his thoughts, words and actions. So, wherever you may be, don't hurry to say “I think, I understand, I know, It seems to me...” allow the wisdom of God to say. For this, of course spend time in the wisdom of God. This is imperative. Load the Proverbs and listen, listen, listen, listen. Listen to them in the car, at home, everywhere—of course, in the car, you can't immediately write down any revelations you may receive—but listen. Also another thing. When you just begin to listen to it, the flesh will resist, and you may fall asleep at first. This is a serious manifestation... but don't get upset! I never get upset. There was a time, when I was going through all this, where my body would simply shut down. We would stand to pray at home, and Me, as the high priest of my family stood in the center of the room.. stood on my knees, to pray.... and sometime later, I would be given a shake “get up, we're done” I simply shut off. My flesh was seriously resisting. I would fall asleep in every physical position! So, don't get upset. If you fall asleep, don't think that we will come up and give you wake-up beats. Don't get upset—the important thing is that you thirst. Once you go through this process, you won't fall asleep. This is simply a process which everyone who thirsts goes through.
Let's thank god for his Wisdom, and practice wisdom! Practice! Don't hurry to answer whatever may come from your mind. Do not hurry. Allow the answer to rise up out of your spirit. This will bless those around you and listening to you. And what's in your mind, you already repented in it in your time, so don't hurry!
