We read in our scripture text, “Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, how long ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at naught all my counsel and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your 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 they that hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despise all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil”. Never before has wisdom cried like it is crying today, from in the streets, to the chief places of the concourse. The concourse is the place where a tumultuous and the great commotion of an angry mob resides to the point of great agitation. The chief places speak of those who are appointed, elected, or self appointed, especially those in high places. In the streets and in the gates of the cities there is a moan and a crying from wisdom declaring something beyond description is imminent. What is wisdom crying? Listen to the spirit of wisdom as she speaks to the multitudes. Ye simple ones, how long will ye love simplicity? The simple ones are the seducible ones, the silly ones. We read in 1st Timothy 4:1&2, Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron. We read in 2nd Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived”. The deceived are those who are deluded, easily persuaded, enticed or allured. They are seduced by the power of fascination, charm, and appeal from Satan’s emissaries and they are trapping untold millions. We read in 2nd Corinthians 11:14&15, “And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”. How long will you love simplicity or the sinister way? The way of evil along with ominous signs are appearing everywhere in this nation. The Romans had a belief that unfavorable omens appear on one’s left side. Today, we hear the phraseology all the time, “they are too far to the left”. The word sinistral means, “the left side”. An ill-omened disaster is about to unfold on this nation. Thus, the psalmist declared in Psalms 16:8, “I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved”. We read in Hebrews 8:1, “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens”. Simply put, you had better be on the right side. Wisdom says to the agitated mob, how long will you scorners delight in scorning, or how long shall the mockers deride in their mocking? We read in Isaiah 28:22, “Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption (a final end), even determined upon the whole earth”. In the new Testament we read in Galatians 6:7&8, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting”. Wisdom declares that fools hate knowledge. The word hate here in the Hebrew means, to hate violently, to be untrustworthy; it also means to show negative preference. Did we not witness at the Democratic National Convention a negative preference toward God and Jerusalem? How openly they booed God and Jerusalem right before the nation without any reservation whatsoever! Always remember, love unites but hate divides. Thus, we have a solemn warning found in the scriptures in 1st Timothy 5:22, “Neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure”. Needless to say, the church today has become totally unequally yoked with unbelievers. We are warned in 2nd Corinthians 6:14, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness”. Again we read in 2nd Corinthians 6:17, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”. It is a truth, no man can serve two masters. Wisdom says that they hate knowledge; for we read in Romans 1:28, “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient”. The knowledge of God allows one to refrainfrom error. God says if you loathe my knowledge then you will go into
captivity. We read in Isaiah 5:13, “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”. (VERSE 23) Wisdom says turn at my reproof: in other words turn at my pleading, at my chastisement, and turn to me because of my righteous argument. If you will turn, I will pour out of my spirit upon you, the spirit of Revelation, the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of understanding. If you will turn, I will make known my words and my will for your life says the Lord. (VERSE24) I have called and preached, as well as summoned you into my holy court, the court of my word. God said my court is holy. My call is a specific call and not some mere random call. It is a call to get your attention so that spiritual contact can be initiated by my Spirit. As I called Adam, I said, “Adam where art thou”? Today, I call out to you, where are you? But you have refused and you are unwilling. I have stretched out my hands, my nail pierced hands. My hands are a symbol of power, of assistance, and hands of deliverance. Now that you have refused my hands of mercy and my hands of grace, and have no regard for my hands, ,my hands will now become like an angry man shaking his hands in your face! My hands will now cause you to quiver, you will vibrate up and down and my hands will be like a sickle in the earth, says the Lord. (VERSE 25) You have set at nought all my counsel and you have ignored all my words and all my messages. Just like in the days of Moses, my people of Israel had gotten out of hand and began running wild, so has your nation. Israel was having their drunken orgies and had forgotten my hand of deliverance, so you too have forgotten me. (VERSE 26) Wisdom now says, I will laugh at your calamity, your destruction, your ruin, and your disaster. There will be great oppression and I will stir many fires among you.
Wisdom says, I will mock your fear when it comes. When your terror, dread, and panic arises I will mock you, mock you as someone who is stammering. (VERSE 27) Your fear will come as desolation, like a crash, a rushing devastating storm, so shall the tempest be around you. For you have sown to the wind and you shall reap the whirlwind. (Hosea 8:7) Anguish shall come upon you and you will be constrained as in a strait, it will be a place of distress and of great need, a place of difficulty, says the Lord. (VERSE 28) Wisdom says, many shall call upon me but I will not answer. They shall seek me early, but they will not find me. Have I not said that my Spirit shall not always strive with man? Have I not said seek me while I can be found and call upon me while I am near, saith the Lord? Many of you have mocked my messengers and despised my words and misused my prophets until my wrath has risen up against you, and there is no remedy, but repentance, repentance, repentance, and repent now! (VERSE 29) You have hated my knowledge and chose not to fear the Lord God of heaven and of earth. You did not choose to fear me saith the Lord. Did I not declare that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction? (VERSE 30) You would none of my counsel, you despised my reproof, you once received my favorable attention but you have rebelled and will now see and witness my unfavorable side and my disdain. For many who could have received me have chosen to reject me? (VERSE 31) Those who reject me will now eat the fruit of their way and of their own doing? You will now be filled with your own devices and counsel and that will be all that you will know. Your advice and resolve is far too little in measure to deliver you, saith the Lord. (Verse 32) for the turning away of the seducible and seduced shall slay them. Homicide, murder, and killings will now fill your land. Just as Cain murdered Abel, so shall it be in your land. The prosperity of the seduced shall destroy them. Your security and peace is a false peace and security, saith the Lord. Your days of tranquility, security, and of successfulness is now terminated. Abaddon, Apollyon the king of evil, mongrel, and hybrid spirits will soon be released to bring this destruction upon the whole earth and they will be the downfall of many nations. The withering of your crops, your fading strength, hope, wisdom, knowledge and wealth will perish, says the Lord. (VERSE 33) But those of you who have hearkened unto me shall dwell and reside permanently. For you shall be made to lie down in green pastures. It is I who gives stability for heaven and earth shall be moved, saith the Lord. For I say to my people, fear no evil for I am with thee. I am your refuge and your comfort. I am your security and your success. For the work of righteousness shall be your peace, and the effect of righteousness is quietness and assurance forever. My people shall dwell in a perfect habitation and in sure dwellings and in quite places. My son Jesus is your tabernacle, he is your refuge and strength when the day of trouble is manifested. Fear not for behold I am with my people, says the Lord and like a mighty army I will fight for you, saith the Lord.
