Wisdom of Solomon Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Hiya Manuel, In my opinion RIGHTEOUSNESS is nothin short OF BEING INCORRUPTIBLE OF SATANS POWERS I.E. OUR CARNAL MINDS IS SATANS SEAT. Ya remember Jesus said outta of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil. And that is y we must be bornagain of an incorruptible seed even by the words of God etc this corruptible is gonna put on incorruption and this mortal is gonna put on immortality ,We are gonna be changed in that instant .

    Hello Manuel. As far as a dictionary definition is concerned, 'righteousness' is the quality of being morally right or justifiable. However, when it comes to its use in the Bible, we see another type of Righteousness.

    On the one hand a person who does not have God is his life or in his thoughts, can deem himself righteous (morally right by his own or society's standards) based on his understanding & calculations. And if he is sincere, his conscience would be appeased by his 'high' moral & ethical behaviour. But not before God!

    If we look at Righteousness in the Bible (& there are many references), we can just take one verse out of it: e.g. Philippians 3:9: "And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith". In this verse, Righteousness is the same word in Greek for whether it is generated by man or God. The Apostle Paul is saying that he, once upon a time, deemed himself a righteous person based on his obedience to the Law. No doubt, he was a 'good' person & strived hard to please God. But, he says, God was not pleased with him. Because there was another Righteousness that was far higher & more purer than what he could muster up.

    So when we read of God's Righteousness in Christians or that which we should strive for, then we see that it's not some goodness from ourselves, but what God has done through His Son for us - i.e. it is God Who makes us righteous (a Divine Work & a Divine Approval). By the virtue of Jesus' Death for us, we are declared righteous when we come in faith: our hearts & consciences have been cleansed from sin & accusations, & we now have a right standing before God. However, we must walk in that righteousness ( 1 Timothy 6:11) & if we should stray, we don't lose our standing before God, but can expect the Father's Hand of guidance or correction so that we begin to behave as His children & live according to our high calling.

    Others here have given you some lovely Scriptures on Wisdom & advice. However, I suspect that you might be thinking of a biblical book that is not found in the KJV Bible. This would be the Wisdom of Solomon which is what is considered an Apocryphal Book, i.e. a book (of which there are many) that was deemed unworthy to be included in the canon of Scripture.

    If you need to look at this book, then this Website provides it (& others), under the Tab "More" and then click on 'Standard KJB Apocrypha'. These apocryphal books did not meet the standards set by those who formed the Canon of Scripture & even the Jews, though accepting of many of their written & oral traditions, held doubts over these apocryphal (= hidden) books as authoritative.

    Simply put using the Bible translation of the NLT...

    James 1:5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
  • Brad R Marshall - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    Proverbs 8 is an excellent chapter regarding wisdom. Jesus said in John 14:6,"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the father but by me." He is truth. He is wisdom. If you want wisdom, ask our Father! Christ is so gracious to answer our prayers!

    Here is a beautiful passage with wisdom speaking This is from the King James Bible. Proverbs Chap9 is about wisdom too

    Wisdom's Call: Proverbs chapter 8.

    Proverbs 8:1-4

    1.Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

    2.She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.

    3.She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.

    4.Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man....

    Proverbs 8:22-36

    22.The Lord possessed me (Wisdom) in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

    23.I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

    24.When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

    25.Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

    26.While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

    27.When he prepared the heavens I was there: when he set a compass on the face of the depth:

    28.When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

    29.When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment:

    when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

    30.Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

    31.Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

    32.Now therefore hearken unto me O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my my ways.

    33.Hear instruction and be wise, and refuse it not.

    34.Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    35.For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

    36.But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

    Dolores, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS WISDOM and HIS understanding.

    Proverbs 8 explains wisdom: Read it in the light that Jesus Christ IS WISDOM and it will have a lot more meaning.

    To reply to Rev Dr Peter Djabeng Question on Wisdom of Solomon 1: Solomon fell victim to females because of his

    struggle with his flesh. His father David also had a weakness for females. This did not take away from the fact that

    Solomon is the wisest to live and that God still granted him this wisdom, for Solomon was righteous and loved God and

    was given a gift of wisdom, as God gives all of us gifts. We are humans and are flawed. God knows this. Be encouraged.
  • Rev Dr Peter Djabeng on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    If Solomon was wise why than he fell in the hands of women.
  • They looked upon each other and new they where naked and thus shame entered in, but don't overlook the greater sin Eve was beguiled but Adam essentially blamed God for his maleficence by stating the woman you have made for me gave the fruit and he did eat
  • Monty B Duke - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    That is what I said, but the other party said that this could have been what Eve tempted Adam with after being tempted by Satan. I said that the original sin was disobeying God and that He had told them not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I have searched the scriptures again and cannot find anything remotely pertaining to Satan tempting Eve in that manner. Thank you.
  • Hello, no, Eve didn't have relations with satan. That is nowhere in the Bible and is completely made up. This is a recent falsehood that's been circulating around and ironically it's another lie by satan. It's really sad that people are spreading fake news that doesn't come from the Bible, but comes from people wanting to deceive.
  • Personal Bible Study - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1:2
    Others can point you to the right reference books you might enjoy adding to your Bible studies.

    I have 7 severely marked up Bibles; all KJV. A Strongs Concordance. A Dakes Bible I only use for the lists.

    I use Commentaries on this Website and on Google. Google=King James Bible Commentaries to weed out some commentators. You just type in your scripture on Google plus the word "Commentary". ALWAYS run comments under the Holy Spirits scrutiny.

    He is our Teacher. We can't rightly divide anything without Him. He should help us pick out all of our books. Some authors I have: Tozer, Andrew Murray, Watchman Nee, Arthur E Bloomfield, Charles Capps.

    I don't think it's good to read too many authors. That's just me. I rely heavily on the Holy Spirit to educate me. He's trying to teach us all the time, but we don't get still, and listen.

    Keep a journal and date it: things the Holy Spirit teaches or comments on. He will always without fail, Confirm His Word.

  • Part Two US NAVY in GULF on Wisdom of Solomon 1:2
    THE SHIP has at least 16 fake airplanes on its carrier deck. It was being towed by a boat, and another Iranian fast boat was seen nearby. The carrier, one of the Iranian navy's largest ships, was blown up by Iran in 2015 and then repaired. Iran's navy is otherwise relatively small and no match for the US Navy. One US naval officer quipped last year that the US could destroy the Iranian navy in an afternoon if it wanted to.

    At the moment, it appears that the USS Eisenhower, which was off the Persian Gulf earlier this month, is now in the Mediterranean Sea for a drill with the Hellenic Navy. Between July 14 and 20 it made its way from near Oman toward the Red Sea and Suez Canal.

    The USS Nimitz has been working recently with the Indian Navy. With the Eisenhower and the USS San Jacinto in the Mediterranean, the Nimitz has now moved to take up station with the Fifth Fleet as part of the need to sustain a carrier strike group presence in the Middle East, joining the fleet on July 24.

    The Nimitz brings with her nine squadrons of the Carrier Air Wing and a destroyer squadron with the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Princeton and Arliegh-Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Sterett and USS Ralph Johnson, all under the command of Rear Adm. Jim Kirk. A native of Pennsylvania, he took up command of Carrier Strike Group 11 in May.


    Isn't that Sorta silly? I'm with the President on this one :D
  • Gods Blessings Thrown Away - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1:2
    Genesis 25-27. Tells the story of Esau and Jacob. Jacob and Rebekah worked together to cheat Esau out of his birthright as elder son. Esau made it easy because he'd rather have a bowl of stew than his birthright.

    They got the birthright and Isaacs blessing.

    It seems wrong but Esau had no regard for those things until he realized what He had done. It says God hated Esau for the treachery. This doesn't sanction cheating and treachery. It teaches that when God gives you a blessing, don't throw it away on something temporal.

    The Bible tells us that children are. Blessing from God, too. Amazing.
  • Amarachi on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    Am so happy to read this
  • Just a comment by Alex that the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. I always think of that script. when i hear you ppl saying God wants to kill us physically, with a literal fire.. When jesus rebuked James and John when that wanted to call a literal fire down from heaven and destroy the Samaritans. Jesus said he came NOT to destroy mens lives but to save mens lives. Ya gotta realize his fire is spirit as God is spirit but God is also a consuming fire . thus that H.G. FIRE is spirit. By my spirit saith the lord. Its simply our old demonic adamic spirit that he wants to consume. The law of the spirit of life in christ jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. Remember he told James and John you know what manner of spirit you are of, TH WORLD TODAY does not know what manner of spirit they are of ,we are packing satan on our backs and in our hearts thats y all of our works are filthy rags. i.e its like putting lipstick on a pig and expecting God to have a relationship with that pig. But when the sower of that good seed goes forth to sow his seed in our hearts. Its gona result in a new heart and a new SPIRIT. A new innerman which is the H.G. A BABY CHRIST, Unless ya receive the kingdom of God as a LIL CHILD you will in no wise enter there in. Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed even by the words of God, th contents of the book in the right hand of the father th new covenant is gonna initiate a birth of Christ in all of us, And thats how Christ will be multiplied as the stars of heaven via his seed remember that Promise. Thats y jesus refers to the H.G AS the Promise he is the multiplication of Christ. Thou shall suck dry the breasts of the Gentiles even the Gentiles are gonna give birth, th Child is the H.G. A CHILD NOT OF THIS WORLD. AS WE HAVE BORNE THE IMAGE OF THE EARTHLY WE MUST BEAR ( new birth ) THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY. Unto us a child is born. Th 2 nd coming.
  • comments by Alex on Malachi 3 Who shall abide the day of his coming , Who shall stand when he appears ( 2 ND COMING ) For he shall be as a refiners FIRE and fullers soap a cleasing fire i.e his baptism of fire that we all Need as our GOD IS A CONSUMING FIRE THAT IS GONNA CONSUME MANS ADAMIC SINFUL NATURE. Thus every man ( sinner ) will have his part in that lake of fire which is his baptism of the H.G. AND FIRE . Thats y he said i come to bring fire on the earth meaning on mankind Remember th Red HEIFER SHE HAD TO BE BURNED TO ASHES AT THE DOOR of the tabernacle our old evil adamic nature is gonna be burned to ashes at the door of our hearts ya remember he said he wd not leave them root nor branch nothin is gonna beleft of our old man,behold i make all things new .Satans head is gonna be crushed his head is our old adamic nature which is in rank with satan, thats y he called Peter satan . There is absolutly nothin wrong with this beautiful earth,its mans sick nature that needs to be destroyed, not the earth with all her beautiful things. All ways remember our God is a consuming fire and that gives me hope. gtg gbu
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1:13
    Thank you very much. Now I understood.
  • Andrew, you're quoting from an Apocryphal book, which is not accepted in the Canon of Scripture. The reasons for these books not being accepted are many but come under the general reason that there are portions of text within them that conflict the general theme of Scripture. We can't say that all of it is wrong, but when you get Truth & dubious material mixed together, then it is wise to stay away from it.

    But to your question: from the King James Version, in Gen 2:16,17, we read that God created all the plants in Eden in perfection. The tree you mention that was one of the trees there, is the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil. This wasn't a Tree of Death & Life - it did not give either. Why people consider it bad was because God used that tree to prevent Adam & Eve losing their innocence & remain pure. So the tree wasn't bad, it was their disobedience to God that caused them to sin & so spiritually die (i.e. become separated from their Maker) & to also physically die eventually.

    But the Tree of Life that was also in the garden, God had now secured it so Adam & Eve couldn't eat of its fruit & live forever in a sinful state: an unnatural state to be in for a sinner; the payment for sin is death ( Rom 6:23).
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj on Wisdom of Solomon 1:13
    Wisdom of Solomon 1:13

    "For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living."

    My question: How do he said like this. God created tree of death and life in Eden. It contradict this verse.

    Why Martin Luther translated this verse?

    Wisdom pays, foolishness pays. Choose your pay.
  • Trinity - in Reply on Wisdom of Solomon 1
    Remember people shall reap that which is sown, whether it be good or bad. The word of God gives us clear instructions to apply to our lives and it also tells us about the end times which we are currently living in. The day shall come that the US is destroyed according to the word of God.
