The foolishness of God is wiser than men

For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. Mark 9:49

Revealing of truth always opens my eyes so that His Word may have His will in and through me. As I sat thinking about how “every one” shall be salted with fire I wonder why. See as a cook I use salt to bring out the favour of what I am cooking. So into His Word went my heart knowing He wants to speak to me.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matthew 5:13

If “salt have lost “his” savour” “SAVOUR!” what is this word implying and how does it affect the believer? “savour” means a few things I noticed in my Greek dictionary.

In Matthew 5:13 the word is “to be foolish, to act foolishly.” I know salt implies preserving. So if this preserving agent begins to act foolish again how can it be salted?

“FOOLISH!” ….. My heart lite up in a flame of truth when I saw that word “foolish.”

Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 1 Corinthians 1:20

God has nothing to do with “the wisdom of this world” for it neither brings glory unto Him nor does it led any to the pathway of salvation.

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18

You are either a fool for Christ or a fool to again follow the wisdom of this world.

For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 1 Corinthians 1:19

The world by wisdom knew not God, and going back to it for wisdom concerning God only makes a fool out of one. How does a unbeliever teach anything about God when they reject born again of "water" and "Spirit?" (Jesus name baptism, infilling with evidence of tongues).

They can’t! They only turn to the wisdom of the world to try and present God.

For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy and will not, can not and shall not be seen from the wisdom of this world!

For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. 1 Corinthians 1:21-29

Yes they that present God with worldly wisdom do so with their flesh thinking it brings any glory to God! I tell you that NO one in the flesh will EVER be in His presence!

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: …. Matthew 25:1-3

Five were foolish in that they spent their time storing the wisdom of this world and in turn they became Godless!!!!

Jesus said “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and "doeth them not", shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: … Matthew 7:26

These did not build their HOUSE, their vessel upon the Word, the Rock; but upon the wisdom of man!

Come on do you see that they that “heareth” the Words of Jesus and does not do them shall be likened unto a “foolish man.” Yes they are foolish for they thought as the world did using the wisdom of man rather than obeying the Word of God!

Look at these foolish virgins …. when they say “Lord, Lord open up to us” Jesus will reply back “But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.” Matthew 25:12

Why did He not know them?

Because they did not build their house upon His truth but upon the foolishness of the world …. the sand!

Watch out wise virgins and beware of the "seed" you allow in your ground for you will never know what that 1 seed will do until months later!

Ohhhhhh how I see this foolish Laodiceans age we are in. So many have reject the Rock, for the wisdom of man.

"Because thou sayest," Yes this Laodiceans age speaks back to Jesus with the flesh thinking they are serving Him when they have SHUT THE DOOR TO HIS TRUTH!

This is shallow I will say; I heard page after page of scripture exploding in my heart; the Word .... A cry for the Laodiceans age .... Wake up and realize that God is only going to take His home ..... THIS WORLD IS A GRAVE!!!! They who hold on to it are but foolish and allow themselves to be buried again in this grave.

ARISE ..... ARISE AND Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
