Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
The beginning of wisdom is to respect God’s existence and supremacy.
To gain an understanding of a concept, my discipline of study is to go to the source or the seed of something – the Law of Seed means that within the seed is the reproductive ability to produce after it’s own kind. By examining the seed, you discover the original intent.
The Bible starts with the announcement, “In the beginning, God…” The Gospel of John speaks of the same genesis this way, “In the beginning was the Word…”
The beginning of ALL things is the Word. The Word was with God, the Word was God, through the Word, all things have been made, and nothing has been made except through the Word. The Word is the verbal expression of God – the begotten of the Father – declared, uttered, spoken Word.
Our Advisor tells us that if we want to gain wisdom, we should start with God.
We live in a society that has lost reverence and respect for the Word of God. The Bible is no longer generally accepted as sacred. For a lot of people, the Bible isn’t the rule of faith and conduct. Ignorant people who have a the brevity of a few decades of life and a few hours of studying conclude that they know more than the Ancient of Days and the Eternal Word. They’re foolish in their futile thinking and clumsy in their vacuous mind. Their minds are darkened and calloused.
As men, we need to reverently bow – and yes, have a fear of the Lord. It is the beginning of wisdom.
