Proverbs 9:6 Leave your simple ways and you will live;
walk in the way of understanding.
The way to life is in wisdom and understanding. But in this world people do not have wisdom and understanding. Even though they say they worship God, in reality they worship an idol. They do wrong things and do it again and again. About this Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” And also he said, “Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account.”
God gave us everything in the bible to teach us as warnings and examples so that we might learn. But still people do not know and they do not have understanding. They are making the same mistakes over again. In the time of Hezekiah, people worshiped a bronze snake which was made in the time of Moses, but the bible teaches that it was called Nehushtan, which means “a piece of bronze.” They were worshiping a piece of bronze as if they made a bowl out of bronze and worshiping in front of it. In the time of Ezekiel people were worshiping cross made of wood as it was written: “Look at them putting the branch to their nose!” In those days, to worship Tammuz (sungod) they were worshiping cross (the initial of Tammuz). And God called the practice detestable.
Are we any better now? We are also doing the same thing even inside God’s house. People are worshiping “merely a piece of bronze” and “merely a piece of tree.” If they have money they worship “merely a piece of gold” and if not, “merely a piece of silver or metal.” Can we say that we have understanding and wisdom to receive life? Only those who have wisdom can have life. How foolish it is in the eyes of God!!
Isaiah 44:15 15It is man’s fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it. 16Half of the wood he burns in the fire; over it he prepares his meal, he roasts his meat and eats his fill. He also warms himself and says, “Ah! I am warm; I see the fire.” 17From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, “Save me; you are my god.” 18They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand.
Isn’t it foolish even in your eyes? But still people are doing the same, committing the same sin over again. Let us now leave our simple ways and make effort to find the way of life through the words of God in the bible which gives us wisdom and understanding for our salvation. Thanks to God Elohim, Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem.
