When a TRILLIONAIRE emphasizes the importance of what KING SOLOMON does in PROVERBS 8 I listen and read and reread!
“To have respect for the Lord is to hate evil.” Proverbs 8:13
Last night my coughing spell began as I was trying to get to sleep. So I started rebuking SATAN and cussing him out for the evil presence and spirit he is! I even gave him numerous fingers! Within minutes the coughing stopped!
“I hate pride and bragging. I hate evil ways and twisted words. I have good sense and give good advice. I have understanding and power. By me kings rule. Leaders make laws that are fair. By me princes and nobles govern. It is by me that anyone rules on earth. I love those who love me. Those who look for me find me. With me are riches and honor. With me are lasting wealth and success. My fruit is better than gold. My gifts are better than the finest silver. I walk in ways that are honest. I take paths that are right. I leave riches to those who love me. I give them more than they have room for.” Proverbs 8:13-21
So who is speaking?
WISDOM which is what KING SOLOMON asked for FIRST before WEALTH and LONG LIFE!
WISDOM is speaking to KING SOLOMON saying that it was present when GOD created the universe! In fact GOD created WISDOM before HE created anything! Proverbs 8:22-31
So would you not think WISDOM is what you would seek before WEALTH and LONG LIFE?
