    Do all of this, and then — only then — you will understand 

    The world and many in Christ are stupid. So says Prov 2.1-5. When our people can sing worldly lyrics all day long, but have trouble coming up with one or two verses by memory, according to Solomon, they are stupid.

    My child, if you receive my words,
    and store up my commands within you,
    by making your ear attentive to wisdom,
    and by turning your heart to understanding,
    indeed, if you call out for discernment—
    raise your voice for understanding—
    if you seek it like silver,
    and search for it like hidden treasure,
    then you will understand how to fear the Lord,
    and you will discover knowledge about God.

    Do you see this happening among us? With some, yes. With many others, it is not. These are seeking other things, and it shows.

    Don’t be stupid. Make a scene and get wisdom. Be a mental hoarder of the word of God. Be obvious about knowing Christ. Make fearing the Lord your absolute and only priority.

    Only by doing all of this will we get a handle on what it means to be a Christian.

      Those who are TRULY in Christ are not stupid, if they receive the words of the Most High and hide His commandments with them. This is not happening among God’s chosen the so called Blacks the Negroes, Hispanics and Native Americans. ). It’s not surprising that when it comes to OUR PEOPLE are eluded to the things of the world. Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness (our people are in the wilderness) and said, if you bow down and worship me, I will give you the things of this world.
      Question: What are they are seeking? What they are seeking is the reason they have no understanding.
      Question: What does it mean to fear God? According to Ecclesiastics 12:13?
      Question: What is Religion? The Bible and all that God has commanded His people to follow and endure isn’t a religion. Religion created their gods using the bible such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. All the scriptures are inspired by God of the Holy Bible KJV 1611 with the Apocrypha, translated by King James (a black man). He is the ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD. Christian Scholar translated the scriptures and taught their own doctrine to fit their religion- Christianity- Their god resembles Caesar Borgias (The white Jesus Christ). This is white supremacy and man creating God in his own image; Islam- Stole the Bible The prophet Muhammad couldn’t read or write, so he went the chosen people of God to receive their learnings and went and created the god called Allah. When the Quran was dictated from Gabriel to Muhammad he had his scribe to write the Q’uran which has no prophesies in it. Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the nation of Islam was taught by Wallace Fard Muhammad a white man. Muslims, and the nation of Islam bow down and worship that stone in Mecca.(1 Peter 2:8 AND Duet 28:64 Jeremiah 2:27). Judaism- does not believe in Jesus Christ; and has blasphemed His name in all sorts of ways. The Jews in Israel today are known as the synagogue of Satan. So their god is Satan (Revelation 3:9)
      Question: When was CHRISTIANITY introduced in America? founded and by whom and for what reason? (Hint: Rise of the Roman Empire and their emperors) Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade; Slavery? When the God of Israel sent His Chosen People into captivity on SHIPS; (During the Transatlantic Slave Trade) according to Duet 28:15-68?
      Fearing the Lord is our absolute and only priority, and if we do, “THIS” then will we receive all of what Proverbs 2: 1-5, starting with the first verse, and throughout the BIBLE.
      Question: Who is God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE according to 1 Peter 2:9; Genesis 17:7, Duet 7:6-11 and Numbers 25:13
      Question: How long does an “everlasting” covenant last throughout a generation?
      In Duet 28 because of our disobedience, God sent us into captivity and gave us over to our enemies and serve them in all our needs, such as food, water, clothes, EVERYTHING! And they would put a yoke of iron upon our necks until we were destroyed mentally as a nation of people, our nationality, But if we hearken diligently unto His voice and observe all “THIS” which He commanded that day, then God would set OUR PEOPLE on high and above all nations on the earth.
      We are in the last days and God is waking up His people. There will be a Change of Blessings and A Change of Nation for many who will hearken and observed all things the Most High has commanded.

    (#46) The Proverbs of Solomon 11: 23-Determining Determination 

    Since God Created humans, only God can provide specific understanding of human behavior. God gave Solomon Divine Wisdom (1 Kings Chapters 3 and 10) to explain what and why behavior is as it is, and Proverbs 10:1-24:34 are randomly written, as if they were Solomon’s judgments about individual cases brought to him, or simply God-given explanations about life. New Testament passages may help see the continuation of Wisdom offered through Jesus Christ.

    Proverbs 11:23: “The desire of the righteous is only good, But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.”

    The thought is that the purpose of heart determines one’s purpose in life. It is repeated in verse 27 using “seeks” for “desire” of the righteous, and “seeks” for “expectation” of the wicked. What we go for is what we’ll get; our goal determines our aim; we will be whatever we “dream” about becoming. In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ said: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8). Good purpose will receive good result. In the Old Testament, “Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel” (Ezra 7:10); Daniel “purposed in his heart” not to be defiled with his surroundings (Daniel 1:8); so in the New Testament, Christians were “encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord” (Acts 11:23). It is this inner desire that keeps one’s feet moving toward the goal. Obtaining our heavenly reward requires this very thing. Jesus Christ said: “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able” (Luke 13:24).

    Other proverbs state this truth: Proverbs 12:5-6: “The thoughts of the righteous are right, But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful. 6 The words of the wicked are, ‘Lie in wait for blood,’ But the mouth of the upright will deliver them;” Proverbs 12:20: “Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, But counselors of peace have joy;” Proverbs 14:22: “Do they not go astray who devise evil? But mercy and truth belong to those who devise good;” Proverbs 21:10: “The soul of the wicked desires evil; His neighbor finds no favor in his eyes.”

    If ever a truth about humans is taught, here it is: no one rises above his/her goal.
