Not All Wisdom is From God – How You Can Tell Gods Wisdom from the Devil’s

There is devilish wisdom, and there is Godly wisdom.

Wisdom from God is not the sword swung to kill the body, but the surgeon’s sword skillfully used to cut cancer out of the Body.

Wisdom from God is not the hypocrite that picks a side, but instead it picks up the sword of the Lord (the Word of God) that cuts both ways. True wisdom’s agenda is not for itself, or for a specific group of men, or an earthly minded purpose, but for the will of God.

Wisdom from God comes from a gentle Spirit and answers questions, and it’s end goal is to see purity, to see the fruits of love, and to be a peacemaker. It doesn’t “keep peace” with wickedness, it “makes peace” with righteousness.

James 3
15 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.

18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Sometimes the TroubleMaker is Really the PeaceMaker

Those in authority called Elijah the “troubler of Israel” because they wanted to continue mixing their idolatry, baal worship and murderous ways into the kingdom of God without interruption.

*[[1Ki 18:17-18]] KJV* And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

But really they were the troublers of Israel and Elijah was sent by God to bring true peace back to the kingdom of God.

Jesus didnt say to be a peaceKeeper.. Sometimes you have to confront things and be a peaceMAKER.

*[[Mat 5:9]] KJVLite* Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
