    hello Saint's Proverbs 24 is full of wisdom, and knowledge for the righteous son's and daughter's of our GOD. I know longer want my enemies punish, but to come into the wisdom of LORD JESUS. Mr. Smith, you were right when you quoted verse Hosea 4:6. LORD JESUS, gave us back everything that was taken from Adam and eve. WAKE UP!

    **JOHN 6:63IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH THE FLESH -PROFITETH- NOTHING THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE**1 JOHN2:29 IF YOU KNOW THAT HE IS RIGHTEOUS YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE THAT DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS IS BORN OF HIM
  • Mr. Smith
    WE are the household of God who dwells in us (Eph 2:19-22, I Co 6:19-20) and wisdom is already in us (1 Co 1:30, John 14:16-17, 26). Understanding is already ours (John 8:32). We need to stop looking to "obtain" the things of God and start manifesting what we "already have". God's already provided everything (2 Pet 1:3). See Hosea 4:6 as to why most Christians are defeated in life. It's sad.
