Heavenly Wisdom is Pure, Peaceable, and Perpetually Potent
James 3:15-17 (KJB) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
There are two kinds of wisdom at work in this world. One understanding originates from within mankind, while the other is of God. One is pure, peaceable, and perpetually potent while the other wisdom is subject to conditions at work in this world, is fleeting, and relies upon a non-existent or limited understanding and weakness of mankind.
You can easily comprehend from reading these verses as a child of God that any attempt to understand things of God as a lost man is limited and restrained in this world. World-based wisdom does not carry through to eternity upon physical death but leaves a spiritually lost man hanging without perpetual spiritual fellowship with God, sentenced to Hell for all eternity.
Wisdom derived from God has no ceiling or any imposed limits both in this world and forever. God’s wisdom does not contend with any borders and restraint now or later. Why? Because His wisdom matures, and perfects softened souls as they sojourn on this earth and godly wisdom continues in eternity for there is never any conclusion to personally knowing God.
Upon his physical death, the child of God receives a perfect filling of wisdom and peace the very moment he reaches the eternal realm being made perfectly whole; and spiritually sound, and best of all, located in the presence of God forever.
You see there is a substantial difference between the understanding of a man and knowledge derived from God. God’s understanding lasts forever while the understanding of mankind is incomplete and swiftly dissipates upon physical death. A lost person enters eternity spiritually high and dry and exists as fodder in the flames of Hell for all eternity while every child of God enjoys sweet fellowship with God forevermore.
