    have read a few books on eschatology/prophecy (study of the last things). Many describe The Antichrist as a mastermind without differentiating between a mastery that stems from wisdom and understanding, and a “cunning” that proceeds from craftiness and wickedness. They are not the same. The latter is a mastery of foolishness. The Antichrist is anti-Christ. Although in appearances, he may try to imitate him, in reality, he is everything Christ is “not”. Where does wisdom come from, if not from God? James 1:5 says, “If any lack wisdom, let them ask of God.” Where does wisdom start, if not with the fear of the Lord? Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Who is it that personifies wisdom, if…

    the Book of Proverbs, comprised mostly of parables and poetry, one can truly comprehend the wisdom God gave to his people. In the beginning of Proverbs, readers are introduced to “Proverbs of Solomon son of David, King of Israel.” (Estes 213) This gives the initial impression that King Solomon wrote the book of Proverbs, however, scholars discovered that it was in Jewish tradition that the book was edited by “the men of Hezekiah” (Estes 213). Many academics have come to the conclusion that King…

    In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, God created both male and female in His own image (Genesis 1:27). With both man and woman being made in the image of God, both are in equal standing before God; yet, within their equal standing, men and women have different roles. The different roles were created to be complementary, meaning, the roles that God created for men and women are in perfect balance of each other (Genesis 2:23). The complementary role that God created for women includes, but is…

    “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise. Without having any chief, officer, or ruler, she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest.” (Proverbs 6:6-8 ESV) “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.” (Ecclesiastes 9:10 ESV) Throughout the entirety of the Wisdom Books, the authors, inspired by the Lord, penned wisdom beyond human comprehension.

    Ecclesiastes 1:1 states that this book contains “the words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.” For this reason, it is traditionally believed to have been written by King Solomon around the year 935 B.C.E. King Solomon was the son of David, who was known for his wisdom and his writings, as well as his wealth. In chapter 2, verses 4-9 mention great works he built as well as treasures he owned, also leading to the belief that Solomon is the author. Not all Biblical scholars…

    Ecclesiastes is often thought of as “the book that says everything is pointless”. This is true, to some extent. The book covers almost all other the reasons people have found for living and explains, in detail, why it is not worth pursuing. Everything is a cycle and if you follow it you will only end up doing the same thing over and over again with no real sense of happiness or purpose. The one exception to this and the one thing that can give meaning and happiness to everything else is God and…

    Wisdom is of great value to the Christian. Wisdom is not a level that can be attained; it is something that should be sought and strived for throughout a person’s life. God is very clear in His Word that He desires every Christian to gain wisdom. It’s through wisdom that a person can come to know God and grow closer to Him. Wisdom allows one to know more about God, His commands, and His will. Therefore, God speaks expressly in the Bible about the need for wisdom! Proverbs 4:7 states: “Wisdom is…
