What Is Wisdom?
Updated February 1, 2024.
Below is a copy of my answer to John’s great comment on “What Is Wisdom”. I find that I get so involved in wanting all of us in the Boise/Treasure Valley to cast away our status quo attitudes that I can be ‘verbose”. That’s not Jesus, it’s me! I have turned my reply into a message-article because it was long enough to be one!
Thank you, John. It is kind of you to offer this beautiful comment on “What Is Wisdom” to help everyone including me, for we all learn and grow from Jesus gettng in the midst of our questions and answers . Thank you for all the beautiful and life-strengthening scriptures! May I excerpt your touching conclusion and, humbly, try to take us deeper into the heart of God?
“I am convinced that wisdom in the simplest of terms is the application of the command of Jesus, to love God and to love our neighbor. Not our way but His way! His way is contained in His Bible. “
If we would only keep that command, how wonderful it would be. It would be good, but it will make us only “not far away from salvation” — from understanding the heart of God to escape damnation. We don’t want to be not far away. We need to attain salvation.
That command, sorrowfully, can never bring us into actually understanding and expressing the heart of God — which is why God sent JESUS. ONLY in Jesus can we see the express image of God, Himself — that is, his heart.
Only a few hours before being tortured, mocked in a fake trial, and hung to a tree Jesus said:
A “new” commandment I give unto you — “that you love one another AS I have loved you”.
Mastering that command is my fire! Every minute and hour I am breathing that last command Jesus spoke before agonizingly pouring out his life-blood — for garbage like me! It keeps me alive and on point with my Lord!
Although, most of us who have ever studied the Bible tend to think Jesus said to love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself — isn’t it a reality check when we learn Jesus never commanded it at all, but Moses commanded that?
These repetitive and common beliefs that we all face are the reason the Lord guided me to put up a “Jesus News” section on this Christian Survival website and why Wednesday evenings we don’t study the Holy Bible as a book — we study JESUS as God who wrote the Book!
As you have reminded us in Deuteronomy 4:1-14 — Moses obeyed God and gave commands from God to the Jews until the Christ would come. Being Christ, Jesus reminded his gainsayers that Moses ordered them to stop following Moses and to follow Him, whrnever He arrived! (Luke 24:44).
We must go much higher, John, than the commands God gave to Moses for the original Jewish people. We must step into “faith” in this JESUS and all His authority as God. Now, we obey and trust in the commands He has given to the entire world of people, for everyone, including Jews — to be saved by Jesus!
This is that hidden wisdom, the mystery of all ages and the wisdom made to us.
God no longer wants it hidden. To us He reveals it — to those who are still outside of Jesus He hides it (1 Cor 2:6-7)!
He has revealed:
“Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:24-29)
“Christ in me”, John … and in you, and in as many as choose to not resist Jesus Christ pulling on their heart to love just like Him.
Jesus, also, told us:
(1)”Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall never pass away” — Mark 13:31 KJV
(2)”He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” — John 12:48 KJV
Therefore, I too, am convinced John:
“I am convinced that wisdom in the simplest of terms is the application of the command(s) of Jesus Christ alone and that His one all-encompassing command (the royal law) is — Love one another exactly as I have loved you.
His new move will return some people to loving one another as He has loved us! The only way He has chosen to make the world believe in Him is how Christians treat one another. Amazing wisdom! He says the world will believe in Him when they see how we treat one another. Again, I say, amazing wisdom!
May I say that in the organized religion Christian system, which I fully abandoned in August 2023, we are so busy trying to impress the sinner-world with our love for them that loving one another falls right through the cracks (I am a living testimony to that, but will share about it in upcoming venues).
My conclusion is still …
By that very command to love one another as He has loved us … “I must be able to go to sleep before God every day FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE with the decision(s) I make today”.
The Lord bless and reward you for your comment and your pursuit of Jesus, John. Thanks for sharing!

LIKE JESUS – NO ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE
Since Jesus had no office for meeting with anyone and none of the apostles had an “office”. Money will no longer be received and paid to investors of commercial property for a “physical office” of Truth Seekers Church. Money has been paid for a registered agent physical address. Jesus turned the entire world without most of the things we think are needed today “to do church” . When needed, Jesus always met with persons anywhere and He has wisdom and power today to guide “in the moment” a location to meet with any sincere and precious soul seeking spiritual counsel. The Ethiopian eunuch was sent by Jesus to bring His Gospel to an entire nation from counsel received while riding on a chariot! (Acts 8:25-40)

Every human being has the right to seek God Almighty, but not to visit our meetings. IF the person is not faking, spying, or gathering for a cause — see Acts 9:26 — then Truth Seekers Church welcomes you to accompany a member as guest. There is no seeking you out to join this church (recruiting).
