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.

All My Pleasure is In You | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 36 –

All My Pleasure Is In You

It was really kind of weird. We have been praying in the same spot for almost a week, and all of the sudden I hear the word “witchcraft,” and I notice  cigarettes on the ground, people smoking cigarettes. Even though we have been praying in front of two new huge brand new medical marijuana shops, I’m just now getting it.

Witchcraft is powerful in our city. “Pharmakeia” is a big stronghold, it even entangles some in the Church. Drugs, pills, getting drunk with alcohol, blunts cigarettes… even the legal drug game is rampant. We won’t even start on how crack and weed and illegal drugs have ruined familes, communities, and destroyed entire urban areas with violence and gangs.

So I start praying, “Lord I turn from getting pleasure from chemicals to getting pleasure from You. All my pleasure is in you, all my fountains are in you. Flow through me. Help me to only get the physical pleasure that you allow. Then overflow my heart with the your spiritual pleasures through your Holy Spirit.”

We need to bring down the power of witchcraft and pharmakeia, even if its legal. Not all medicines qualify as pharmakeia. But be careful if you are getting addicted to drugs that just mask symptoms and don’t really do anything. We’ve got to use our authority over this. It’s got to stop in the Church! Let’s show the world that our God gives us true pleasure that doesn’t kill us in the long run.

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalms 16
