The Key to Economic Development in Detroit

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9

wisdom: chokmah

wisdom

  1. skill (in war)
  2. wisdom (in administration)
  3. shrewdness, wisdom
  4. wisdom, prudence (in religious affairs)
  5. wisdom (ethical and religious)

12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. 13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate . Proverbs 8

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil. Hating evil gives you wisdom.

Wisdom is skill and creativity in problem solving.

Wisdom with prudence finds out knowledge of witty inventions, and new creativity.

The key to Detroit’s economic development is the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom. We need to have people who are afraid of God’s judgements so that they will do what’s right instead of do what’s wrong. We need people who don’t want to hurt people or harm God’s earth, because those people will get wisdom to create products that will benefit the community, not harm it.

Anything less is just a scam. Most of the foolish recent economic developments are not based in the fear of the Lord, or wisdom, so they end up causing destruction. We don’t need an economy based on alcohol, bars, pharmakeia, drugs, and witchcraft. We don’t need an economy based on casinos and lotteries, and scamming the poor. We don’t need an economy based on wicked music that worships idols. We don’t need cut-throat babylon businessmen and lawyers who make their money by stealing, lying, and conniving – whether it be legal or illegal. We don’t need businessmen that are psychopaths, justifying their desires, externalizing the consequences, and not caring who they hurt on the way. We don’t need economic developments in slavery, usury, fraud, ponzi schemes, or deceit.

We need real inventors with real wisdom. But as long as we don’t fear the Lord, we will lack wisdom, and there will be a continued downward spiral in the economy. Yeah some wicked men might get rich, but they will find out soon that they lost their soul because they abused the poor. But those that fear the Lord will always increase in wisdom, and they will come out on top in the end. They will solve problems with prudence and get new witty inventions based on creativity from the Creator.

Let’s pray for the FEAR OF THE LORD to spread like wildfire across our City. Let’s pray that men would begin to fear God’s judgements, and adjust their lives immediately, every day. Let’s pray for a conviction on the preaching of the Word that would make people tremble because they realize that the Word of God is not just a collection of practical suggestions, but the very sword of God that will hurt them if they are on the wrong side of it. If we fear and respect and reverence God, He will come closer to us, and we will find His mercy and love. Then we will see lasting economic development.

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

The Call
