Proverb 9 (NKJV)
The Way of Wisdom
01 Wisdom has built her house,
00 She has hewn out her seven pillars;
02 She has slaughtered her meat,
00 She has mixed her wine,
00 She has also furnished her table.
03 She has sent out her maidens,
00 She cries out from the highest places of the city,
04 "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!"
00 As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
05 "Come, eat of my bread
00 And drink of the wine I have mixed.
06 Forsake foolishness and live,
00 And go in the way of understanding.
07 "He who corrects a scoffer gets shame for himself,
00 And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself.
08 Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you;
00 Rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
09 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser;
00 Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
00 And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 For by me your days will be multiplied,
00 And years of life will be added to you.
12 If you are wise, you are wise for yourself,
00 And if you scoff, you will bear it alone."
The Way of Folly
13 A foolish woman is clamorous;
00 She is simple, and knows nothing.
14 For she sits at the door of her house,
00 On a seat by the highest places of the city,
15 To call to those who pass by,
00 Who go straight on their way:
16 "Whoever is simple, let him turn in here";
00 And as for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
17 "Stolen water is sweet,
00 And bread eaten in secret is pleasant."
18 But he does not know that the dead are there,
00 That her guests are in the depths of hell.
Without the fear, respect, honor, and acknowledgment of the Lord there is not even the beginning of wisdom. Through the deceit of the left and luciferian Supreme Court Justices the honor of God has been driven from our public school system. The teaching of wisdom has bern rendered illegal. This can only be horrible for our nation.
An exception could be God-fearing educational staff who let their light shine while working in the system. After I received Christ at age 20, the two staff from high school I desired to see, my sophomore English teacher, and the college counselor, were Christians.
Father, we pray for the education of children in our nation. Forgive us for dishonoring you and forbidding them to be taught even the beginning of wisdom. We pray for godly education education in our nation. We bind the spirit of anti-Christ seeking to keep our children from you. We stand against religious spirits that have aligned with the devil. We pray for true wisdom, liberty, truth, and character to be imparted to the coming generations. We pray for Christians to impact the educational system at all levels, including new laws, administration, online education, educators, staff, charter schools and more. Lord, let our nation be known as a nation of wisdom. Let our young people and us be filled with wisdom as never before. We ask this as your servants, ready to follow as you lead.
