Proverbs: Wisdom’s Call- Spirit

20Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square; 21on top of the wall she cries out, at the city gate she makes her speech: 22“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? 23Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings. 24But since you refuse to listen when I call and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, 25since you disregard all my advice and do not accept my rebuke, 26I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; I will mock when calamity overtakes you— 27when calamity overtakes you like a storm, when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, when distress and trouble overwhelm you.

28“Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me, 29since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord. 30Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, 31they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. 32For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; 33but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.” ~Proverbs 1

The fear of the LORD

Is the beginning of wisdom

And wisdom is what

We should listen to

Always she is calling out,

Imploring us to change

But the day will come

When it will be too late

.

Do not follow the steps of the wicked

Wisdom will teach you how

When you turn in repentence

When you love the LORD

His Spirit He will surely pour upon you

The Holy Spirit

Of Joy and Honor and Grace

The Holy Spirit

Who will teach you Wisdom

In every place

He will enter into you

When you repent in the dust

When you love the Lord

So that you can love Him all the more

Psalm 1:1

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,

Proverbs 1:4

for giving prudence to those who are simple, knowledge and discretion to the young—

John 7:39

By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Isaiah 32:15

till the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest.
