Praise be to our Savior and Lord Yeshua ha’ Mashiach, the King of kings and Lord of lords, “in whom are all hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3). “Who gives (wisdom) to all liberally and without reproach.” (James 1:5)
This is the very first Word that I received from God in great vision where He took my spirit and brought me before His throne in heaven. Although I received this Word years ago, I have kept this Word close to me ever since and have thought about it numerous times. Lately, I have been feeling the nudging of the Holy Spirit to share this Word. I would like to share it with the brethren and I pray that it will help us all, as we prepare for the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One night, as a newly born-again believer, and having received the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues shortly before, I went to bed as usual after reading the bible and praying. In my sleep, the Lord pulled up my spirit to heaven. Suddenly, I was in the midst of a great multitude of Saints all robed in white. The Saints were worshiping and there was a great tumult, like the sound of a great waterfall. The entire place was misty and cloudy, so that I was not able to make out any faces of the Saints whom I saw next to me.
The saints were consumed in worship, but myself, I was mesmerized and dazzled, looking to the left and to the right, this way and that way.
Straight ahead of me, perhaps some 30 meters (100 ft.) or so in front of me was the Throne of God. He was engulfed by angels all round. The wings of the angels enveloped Him all round and above Him so that He was completely covered and could not be seen. By special knowing, I knew that He was in the middle of these covering angels.
I began walking forward towards the Throne, passing by saints who were completely consumed in worship. They were completely unaware that there was a new entrant to the place. None of them responded to my presence. None spoke or said a word to me. But they kept on praising and worshiping the Lord.
I made a few steps forward, walking very slowly and cautiously, and also observantly as I looked to the left and to the right, my mind being utterly confused.
Then the Lord spoke to me from the midst of the covering angels, His Words pointed at me, being very loud and crystal clear, piercing through the great tumult of worship, to me. His voice was the voice of a high pitched trumpet, yet the voice of a man. A voice that I have never ever forgotten even up to now.
Although the Lord was covered by angels, His Words came with the special knowing that they were for me. And at that point I froze and stopped moving forward. These Words also delivered the message that God is Holy, God is high and set-apart and that He is all Knowing and All- Powerful. These words also said to me that He Is the All Mighty.
He said in a very loud and shrilly voice: “I DESPISE THE WISDOM OF MAN”
Immediately after, I woke up from this vision and wrote these words on a small corner of the wall next to my bed. Since then, I have transferred this Word from book to book, lest I forget.
Please look up Isaiah 6: 1-4, Revelation Ch.4 and 1 Kings 22:19 for scriptures relevant to the throne room experience as Micaiah, Isaiah, John and other prophets had similar experiences.
Question: Could it be that the Foolish Bridesmaids have the wisdom of men and not of God?
What does the bible define as wisdom and who does it call as wise?
Below are some scriptures to help answer these questions.
Psalms 110:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”
Proverbs 6:16-19 “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”
Proverbs 11:2 “When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.”
Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.”
Proverbs 13:1 “A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.”
Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.”
Ecclesiastes 7:12 “For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, but the excellent of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.”
Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended and the flood came, and the wind blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
Romans 13:11-14 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the Day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife or envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
1 Cor. 1:18-19 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.’ ”
James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”
Brethren, let each one of us fear the Lord and renounce sin and the works of the devil. For to do these things is wisdom. Let us pray for the Holy Spirit and the blood of Yeshua Jesus Christ to abide. Hoping that we are all accounted worth to soon stand before the Son of Man.
Your brother in Christ, William
