Proverbs 1:20-33 - Wisdom cries out in the street; she utters her voice in the markets. 21 She cries at the corner of the streets, in the openings of the gates; she speaks her words in the city, saying:22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge. 23 Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. 24 Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no man regarded, 25 because you neglected all my counsel, and would have none of my reproof, 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear comes, 27 when your fear comes as desolation and your destruction comes as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will seek me early, but they will not find me. 29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 they would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof. 31 Therefore they will eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the prosperity of fools will destroy them. 33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure from fear of evil.”
The wisdom of God (Jesus Christ) is calling out to each one of us to hear what wisdom has to say.
Wisdom here is describe as a woman who has placed herself in the midst of the busiest places in the world. She has left the 4 walls of the church and has gone out to the 4 corners of the world, bidding people around the world to listen to what the Lord God is speaking to us in this hour.
Wisdom cries out, she is speaking loud as she calls out to people in the middle of a busy streets, the markets, and the entrance of the city gates to hear what (Christ) has to say, and guess what? The call is a clarion call around the world that speaks very loud and above all the noises in the street, the city gates and even the market places to every man, woman, boy and girl.
Wisdom calls out to us when we lie down and when we rise up. At every wakening moment, wisdom is calling so do not separate wisdom from your daily routine and defnitely not from your life.
Wisdom is calling out to the “NATIONS” around the world to listen to what thus says the Lord.
Why is wisdom calling out to us with such a loud and bold call? Wisdom knows someting that we don’t know! Wisdom knows that wisdom is the principle thing and that in all our getting we are to get wisdom.
