I will write the right interventions and after I got to be defined Matthew Brady and Matthew exploration one the call of wisdom in en route the root of human tragedy lies in wrong choices man lost all because you choose to listen to the deceiver rather than to him this truth who alone has understanding by the meaning of evil with good his mind had become confused education page twenty five the book of Proverbs is all about helping us to make right choices to choose the way of God and not that the deceiver the father or the mother speaking to their site not only warns him against wrong choices but encourages them to make the right ones this is so important because the choices we make are literally matters of life and death the first three chapters of Proverbs illustrated this method of education after having explained the purpose of the book to know wisdom Proverbs one verse two and having laid down the macho of the book the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge the author moves back and forth warning us against listening to fully space to urging us to respond to the call of heavenly wisdom in each expiration of Proverbs Doctor DiCarlo recommended proverb of verse to memorize today's wisdom comes through Proverbs one percent and in the new King James version the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge but full despite his wisdom and instruction for maintaining and the patterns of Psalm in ascent and eighty King of Israel to know wisdom and instruction to perceive the words of understanding to receive the instruction of wisdom justice and judgment and the city of subtlety to the simple to the young man knowledge and discretion a wise man will hear and will increase learning and a man of understanding Rice counsels to understand a proverb and interpretation the words of the wise and indexing in Proverbs one one two verse six the title says the Proverbs of Solomon the son of David Proverbs one verse one which establishes a link between this program and first Kings three verses five to fourteen in the books of first and second teams as in the book of Proverbs Solomon is presented as a sign seeking wisdom from God in addition to both referring to Solomon as the son of David the two texts share significant common wording such as understanding wisdom and judgment not only do these parallels confirm solving as the one behind the composition of the book they also show that Proverbs in dealing with the human quest for wisdom from God so how does Proverbs one three seven answer these questions what is wisdom what is the fear of the Lord how do these two concepts relate to each other Proverbs one percent and says the fear of the Lord at the beginning of knowledge the full despise wisdom and instruction the word wisdom in this poverty defined as a religious experience it is related to the fear of the Lord this important concept of the Hebrew religion is teach the book of Proverbs not only does it occur repeatedly they also frame the entire book another text to show religious experience is Proverbs thirty one verse thirty which says favor is deceitful and down to using and beauty is vain but a woman that fear the Lord she shall be praised the fear of the Lord has nothing to do with the superstitious and childish fear of divine punishment instead they should understand it to consciousness of personal presence at all times and everywhere the fear of the Lord had characterized the people 's reaction to God 's revelation I just doesn't explain the commitment to be faithful to longer in response to come in with nineteen over sixteen and it came to pass on the sand in the morning and there were funders are like a cloud upon the mount and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud is that all the people that was in the camp trembled at his twenty first twenty twelve is what Moses said about fearing God and Moses said unto the people fear not for God has come to prove you and that is fair maybe before your face is that you can not in Deuteronomy ten verse twelve reports how Moses provided further detailed instructions about fearing God and now Israel what doth the Lord thy God require of thee but to fear the Lord thy God to walk in all his ways and to love him and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul to fear God means to be faithful to him and to love he the phrase the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom means at least of originating this fear is Hebrew word for beginning pronounced Ray she points to the first toward introducing the creation story in Genesis one one the first lesson of wisdom that deals with understanding that God is our Creator the one who gives us life and breath and that he is always present a God of love and justice and redemption John three sixteen says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life Psalm eighty nine and fourteen seconds justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne mercy and truth struggle before I face and Hebrews nine twelve cents the blood of goats and calves but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place having obtained eternal redemption for acts they are told to love God and also to fear him how do these two concepts relate to your own experience of the law daily reality to you ever ponder think about these introspective questions how do I love God what that means you to love God do I fear and respect God how do you experience that in your life will or will there is challenging a patent is what verses eight through nineteen last year contrasting ways is education presented in these verses and what is the basic message notches for parents but for anyone who fears the Lord my son here the instruction of a father and faith is not the law from other for they shall be an argument of grace unto thy head and changing up a neck my son is safe and tasty consent not for the sake sex letters lay wait for black others like privily for the innocent without cocks let us swallow them up alive as the grave and whole as those that go down into the pit we shall find all precious substance we shall fill her houses with spoil cast in my lot in the mix but is also one purse my son was not bowing the way with them refrain my foot from their path for their feet run to evil and make haste to shed blood surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird and really wait for their own blood they let privily for their own lives so are the ways of everyone that is greedy of gain which taketh away the life of the owners thereof try to identify the answers were the verses you just heard again the two questions are what two contrasting ways of education are presented in these verses and once the basic message in these verses not just for parents for everyone who fears the Lord at the first of our family matter and sure education comes first and foremost from the parents in these verses this education is called instruction and even law the Hebrew word for law Torah means direction the parents aren't appointed children in the right direction in contrast to the other type of education is not identified not even me it is simple and knowledge as the voice of sinners which leads in the wrong direction also the words my son not to be taken in a gender exclusive scents are repeated many times emphasizing parental instruction each parent for example your father and your mother in a new King James version is clearly identified in the singular is personally involved while the other camp sinners in the anonymous player in her book that I was home on page one eighty two Ellen G White wrote in his wisdom the Lord has decreed that the family shall be the greatest of all educational agencies is in the home at the education of the child is to begin here is his first school here with his parents as instructors he is to learn the lessons that should guide them throughout life the educational influences of the home Army decided power for good or for evil if a child is not instructed to write here Satan will educated through the agencies of his choosing the best argument on behalf of family education its results these are the inner qualities or character which I like ornaments on the heading around the neck in the middle eastern culture precious college and bracelets were passed from parents to children as a heritage of value education matters more though him reaches the time spent with our children will be of much greater value for them than the time spent at our businesses also the reference to the neck and the head which is the individuals suggests that educational shake his or her personality in the way of fools or syndromes only my feet are mentioned as if the wayward son had lost his identity Proverbs one verse fifteen is an example of the feet and where they walk being an indication of a person 's character my son walk not down the way with them refrain thy foot from their path now here is a life application question how can you learn to resist the temptations that culture society friends and even family might throw your way to a small comments to letters twenty two twenty three say wisdom to try it without she addressed her voice in the streets she cries in the chief place of concourse in openings of the gates in the city she out of her words saying how long you simple ones will you love simplicity and escorted to lightly scorning and full of hate knowledge turns out my reproof behold I will put my spirit and shoot I will make known my words and to you how is wisdom presented here wisdom wants to be heard just something of importance to announce and she wants everyone to hear what she said she cried out she address her voice she addressed her words she cries out when many people are and where they go that no one misses her message and so she cries out in the streets and in the openings of the gates in the city what is wisdom saying to us wisdom wonders how long we will choose to prefer simplicity if not complement nor virtue if we're like score news to enjoy ridiculing people who follow God and his ways how long will he be that way if we change our ways based upon her reproof wisdom will pour out your spirit on policy wisdom words while the singers lightweight and lurk secretly wisdom calls aloud outside cries out in the chief concourses and speaks her words Proverbs one eleven three twenty one wisdom is sure personified in your offer is getting to the man and the woman on the street it is everyone in the real business of life amid the noise and rancor of so many products and so many sellers the call of wisdom must be loud otherwise she would not be heard against the clamor so many other voices what is the result of rejecting wisdom to find out let's read Proverbs one versus twenty two through thirty two how long you simple ones will you love simplicity and escorted delight in their scorning and full of hate knowledge turn you at my reproof behold I will pour out my spirit thank you I will make known my words into you because I have called any refused and stretched my hand and no man regarded but he has to not only counsel and would none among the proof I also will laugh at your calamity will mock when your fear cometh when your fear cometh as desolation and destruction cometh as a whirlwind when distress and anguish cometh upon you then shall they call upon me but I will not answer they shall seek me early but they shall not find me for that they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord they would none of my counsel they despised all my reproof therefore shall be each of the fruit of their own way and be filled with their own devices for the turning away of the simplest and slay them in the prosperity of strider because I have called and you refused I stress that my hand and no man regarding the reason that people reject wisdom has nothing to do it within itself and everything to do with the character of those who reject her in proverbs one verse twenty five these people are described as arrogant disdainful when he says he has said not all my counsel and would none of my reproof compare that verse with verse thirty of the same chapter they would none of my counsel they despise only reprove it's as if they know better implication is that wisdom is for the naïve and simple it doesn't reject wisdom are simple and naïve baffles you he knowledge according to Proverbs one verse twenty two it also says it are the same people using more stubborn sounding words in verse twenty nine for that they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord those who reject wisdom will reap the fruit of the rejection having refused to choose the fear of the Lord still have to be content with themselves comes one verse thirty one says they will be full with their own fancies only reject wisdom from above we often end up with the fables and lies that we fabricate for ourselves or the fables I like that others advocate for us that we so readily accept in this way we replace God with idols ironically those you despise religion mocking busy judges simply naïve often are superstitious in their own way placing value on the most fleeting useless of things that in the end it can never satisfy the most in need of the heart Proverbs one verse thirty three assures us that whoso hearkening unto me shall dwell safely and so be quiet from fear of evil when we remember the context in what came before can you remember what promising herpes down here for you for example basically three different if I promise if you turn off my reproof behold I will pour out my spirit and to you I will meet learn my way thank you here's a question to concentrate how is this probably shown to be true in my own experience he just happens to verses one to five make a mental list of conditions that will answer this question what conditions for understanding and over again what are the conditions for understanding the fear of the Lord this is what Proverbs two versus one two five three my son if thou wilt receive my words and hike my commandments with the two that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom and applied nine heart to understanding yet if thou Christ after knowledge and lift us up thy voice for understanding and fastest her as silver and sent just for her as for hidden treasures and shall not understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God so when it is for him he betrayed to value them so that we live in a secular condition is seeking for wisdom and whatever you discover applying those concepts to your life the third condition is to hearing for wise knowledge to seek to gain understanding with all your heart the fourth condition is to search for Reagan in the same way that you would search for silver arch has your if we do these four conditions verse five assures us that tends how to understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God take a moment and think about this question what choice is do I need to make do I really value and search for God 's wisdom three times in discourse it introduced with the conjunction it markings three stages in the progression of education the first is introducing the passive stage in listening that is simply being receptive and attentive to the words of wisdom the second if introduces the active response of crying and asking for wisdom necessary if introduces passionate involvement in seeking and searching for within as it was freaking treasures Proverbs two verses six to nine for the answers to these two questions what are the conditions for understanding righteousness when God 's responsibility in the acquisition of wisdom Proverbs two versus sixty nine K for the Lord giveth wisdom out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding he laughed up sound wisdom for the righteous even clear to them that walk uprightly he cheated the past of judgment and presented the latest payments then shalt thou understand righteousness and judgment and equity EAM a good pack again the key questions are what are the conditions for understanding righteousness what is God 's responsibility in the acquisition of wisdom actually the phrase of the Lord gives English six new King James version response of the phrase you will find the knowledge of God verse five new international version wisdom like salvation is a gift from God as much as verses one to five describe the during Chris's sixty nine describe the divine work he gives wisdom he stories with them he guides and preserves the way of the wise know let's listen to times two versus ten to twenty two Proverbs two verse ten phase when wisdom enters into thine heart and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul discretion shall preserve thee understanding such as the deliberately from the way of the evil man from the man that speaketh froward things who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness the rejoicing of evil and delight in the forward stability whose ways are crooked and Dave from work in their path to deliver the from the strange women even from the stranger which flatter us with her words which are seeking the guidance reuse and forget the covenant of her car from her house in climate and today and her pads into the dead number going to her return again take a hold of the paths of life found this walk in the ways good and get the paths of the righteous for the upright shall dwell in the land and the perfect silver meaning that the wicked so become off from the earth and the transgressors shall be rooted out of age when wisdom enters your heart that marks the final stage of conversion not only will you enjoy the knowledge of the Lord but it will be a pleasant experience to our soul will also be protected from the way people from the seduction Eagle and we were walking the path of righteousness listen to Proverbs two verses thirteen to seventeen verse thirteen who leave the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness for seventeen which forsaken the guide if you can forget the covenant of her God is the first step of wickedness and would certainly delete are sinners we have to find the evil one is on the wrong path must have bruised left to right machinist denizen he stood first in the lack of different soon begin suddenly and innocently enough for a long listener not only does we can read but also enjoy what she didn't tell you about yourself if you enjoy doing evil or even worse what if you don't even consider to be evil anymore for him to her and he posits three percent in revealed the track and being wise in one's own license to be wise in one's own eyes will lead to the illusion that one does not need God to be wise in a hopeless situation there is more hope for a folding for them Proverbs twenty six verse twelve new international version again we can be described as a religious commitment to the wise means to keep God 's commandments Proverbs three verse one to display making truth can't escape history and to trust in the Lord Proverbs three verse five Lincoln implies an intimate relationship with God the heart was already mentioned in Proverbs to verse ten as the place wisdom should enter the question is what reward comes with the gift of wisdom listen for the answer in Proverbs three verses thirteen to eighteen which say happy the men that find it wisdom and amendment get an understanding for the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver and the gain thereof than fine gold she is more precious than rubies and all of without canst desire not to be compared her friend David in her right hand in her left hand riches and honor Helena ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace she is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her and how is everyone that retaining her what Nancy did you hear is associated with life and health Proverbs three versus two eight sixteen eighteen twenty two one of the most suggested images is a tree of life in verse eighteen Thomas repeated several times in the book of Proverbs you may recognize this promise in Proverbs eleven verse thirty comments thirteen verse twelve and five sixteen verse four this metaphor alludes to the garden be this comment does not mean that the acquisition of wisdom will provide eternal life instead the idea is that the quality of life with God we Jefferson parents enjoyed meeting can to some measure be recovered only will with God we definitely some hints it even even better we learn to hope in the promised recovery of this last kingdom and Daniel seven verse eighteen assures us that the states of the most high shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever even from her and never here's the current state of verses nineteen and twenty six the Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth by understanding how he established the heavens by his knowledge the depths are broken up in the clouds drop down the deal the sudden reference to the creation story seems to be out of place in this context yet the use of wisdom increasing reinforces the argument of verse eighteen which associates wisdom with the tree of life if not use wisdom to create the heavens and earth wisdom is not a trivial matter the scope of wisdom is cosmic going beyond the limits of our earthly existence within concerns our eternal life wow that is implied in the reference to the tree of life reminiscent of the Garden of Eden this perspective is also contained in the promise that concludes our passage province three verse thirty five the why selling earrings are worrying for your last chance she asked for bonus quotations several pages each from specific chapters by Ellen G White first reading is from the chapter entitled healing treasure pages one eleven through one fourteen in Christ's object lessons the sketches need not be met by the dim light of tradition on human speculation as well might we tried to give light to the son of the torch asked to explain the Scriptures by human tradition or imagination God 's holy word needs not the torchlight on the earth to make it's always distinguishable it is light in itself the glory of God revealed and decided every other light is dim but there must be earnest study and close investigation sharp clear perceptions of truth will never be the reward of indolence no earthly blessing can be obtained without earnest patients persevering effort is meant to attain success in business they must have a will to do as a think to look for results and we cannot expect to gain spiritual knowledge without a earnest toil those who desire to find the treasures of truth must dig for them as the miners dig for the treasure hidden in the air no halfhearted in different work will avail it is essential for old and young not only to regards word that the study would hold I mean and searching for truth as a hidden treasure those who do this will be rewarded for Christ will quicken the understanding our salvation depends on the knowledge of the truth contained in the Scriptures it is God 's will that we should have some stuff search search the press is finally hungry hearts explore God 's word as a minor explores the earth to find veins of gold never give up the search enter you have ascertained your relation to God and his will in regard to you Christ declared whatsoever ye shall ask in my name that will I do to the father may be glorified in the son if he shall ask anything in my name will do it John fourteen versus thirteen and fourteen minutes high tea and time to catch views of eternal realities but often they fail of understanding because of things that are seen to increase the glory of the unseen he who would seek successfully for the hidden treasure must rise to higher pursuits in the things of this world his affections and all his capabilities must be consecrated to the search disobedience has close a door to a vast amount of knowledge that might have been gained from the Scriptures understanding means obedience to God 's commandments the Scriptures are not to be adapted to meet with presidents and jealousy of man they can be understood only by those who are humbly seeking for a knowledge of the truth that they mailed a do you ask what shall I do to be saved you must lay your preconceived opinions in hereditary and cultivated ideas at the door of investigation if you search the Scriptures to vindicate your own opinions you will never reach the truth search in order to learn what the Lord says if conviction comes as you search if you see that your cherished opinions are not in harmony with the truth do not misinterpret the truth see me at the Lincoln open mind and heart that you may behold wondrous things out of God 's word faith in Christ as the worlds Redeemer calls from acknowledgment of the enlightened intellect controlled by a heart that can discern and appreciate the heavenly treasure this safe is inseparable from repentance and transformation of character to have faith means to find and accept the gospel treasure was all he obligations which it imposes except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God John three verse three he may conjecture and imagine but without the eye of faith he cannot see the treasure Christ gave his life to secure frost is in estimable treasure but without regeneration through faith in his blood there is no remission of sins no treasure for any perishing soul we need the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit in order to discern the truth in God 's word the lovely things of the natural world are not seen until the sun dispelling the darkness for them with its light so the treasures in the word of God are not appreciated until they are revealed by the bright beams of the sun of righteousness the Holy Spirit sent from heaven by the benevolence of infinite love takes the things of God and reveals them to every soul that has implicit faith in Christ by his power the vital truths upon which the salvation of the soul depends I impressed upon the mind and the way of life is made so plain that no new air they are in as you study the Scriptures we should pray for the light of God 's Holy Spirit to shine upon the word that we may see and appreciate its treasures let none think that there is no more knowledge for them to gain the depth of human intellect may be measured the works of human authors may be mastered but the highest deepest broadest flight of the imagination cannot find out God they him beyond all that we can comprehend we have seen only the glimmering of divine glory and of the infinitude of knowledge and wisdom we had as it were then working on the surface of the mind when rich golden or is beneath the surface to reward the one who will dig for it the shots must be sunk deeper and yet deeper in the mine and the result will be glorious treasure through a correct faith divine knowledge will become human knowledge knowing can search the Scriptures and the spirit of Christ without being rewarded when man is willing to be instructed as a little child when he submits wholly to God you'll find the truth in his word if men would be obedient they would understand the plan of God 's government the heavenly world would open his chambers of grace and glory for exploration human beings would be altogether different from what they are now provides blowing the minds of trade men would be a noble Ministry of redemption incarnation of Christ is atoning sacrifice will not be as they are now vague and online they would be not only that understood the altogether more highly appreciated in its prior to the father Christ gave to the world a lesson we should be graded on mind and soul this is life eternal he said that they might never be the only true God and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent John seventeen verse three this is true education it imparts power the experimental knowledge of God in Jesus Christ and he has sent transforms man into the image of God it gives to man the mastery of himself bringing every impulsive passion of the lower nature under the control of the higher powers of the mind it makes its possessor a son of God and an air of heaven it brings him into communion with the mind the infinite and opens to him the rich treasures of the universe this is a knowledge which is obtained by searching the Word of God this treasure may be found by every soul who will give all to obtain a if thou Christ after knowledge and lifted up my voice for understanding if no C gets her ass silver and searches for her as for hidden treasure then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God province to verses three to five are second is from Chapter one twelve entitled a blessing in the home page three thirty three in messages to young people the Lord says to the young my son give me thine heart the city of the world loves to have children and youth give their hearts to him there may be a large army of children who shall be found faithful to

will inspire them with his own hateful spirit parents may do everything in their power to give their children every privilege and instruction in order that they may give their hearts to God if the children may refuse to walk in the light and by their evil course cast unfavorable reflections upon the parents who love them and whose hearts year after their salvation it is Satan who tends children to follow any course of sin and disobedience and then him he will take the life of the children while they are yet in their sins in order to cut them off from all hope of salvation into Pierce as with the sword the hearts of the God-fearing fathers and mothers who will be bowed down with a sorrow that never can be lifted because of their children's final in penitence and rebellion against God

themselves to be wise they are ignorant concerning the wisdom which almost have to gain eternal life they cherish a contempt for the book of God which is studying of aid would make them truly life the finalists of them and intentional ministry that granted deep truths of the old and New Testament are obscured to them because spiritual things are not spiritually discerned they need to learn that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and that without this wisdom and learning is of little worth notice you're striving for an education in the sciences but who have not learned the lesson that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom are working helplessly and hopelessly questioning the reality of everything they get higher education in the sciences but unless they gain the knowledge of the Bible any knowledge of God they are without true wisdom the unlearned man if he knows God and Jesus Christ has a more enduring wisdom that has the most learned man who despises instruction of
