There Are Two Types Of Wisdom

James 3:13-18

If you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your heart, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above but is earthly, sensual, and demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.

There are two completely distinct types of wisdom; in this article, we will come to learn hopefully the difference between the two.

The best one is that one which comes from heaven. This type of wisdom will keep our deportment good through a gentle lifestyle.

The worst one is that one which comes from the pit of hell. This type of wisdom will keep our deportment evil which is wickedness through self-centeredness and boasting. Many of us can relate to seeing these traits in others, but are they also within ourselves?

Here is a list of characteristics that make themselves known because they require much attention from others to acknowledge as well as self-acknowledgment.

  • Bitter envy – Is cruel, hurtful, sarcastic, sharp, and severe. Warped Competitiveness is negatively excited by the sight of another’s superiority or success. Which is accompanied by some degree of hatred or malignity, and often or usually with a desire or an effort to depreciate the person, and with pleasure in seeing him/her depressed, rivalry. Living in strife.
  • Self-seeking – An express emphasis on self, love of personal or private interest, self-ambitious, and selfishness.

These things are within the heart of a person, and they can be recognized quickly because they find the need to self-promote. Unfortunately, people with these character flaws are counted among saints. This must be an issue that we will want to give over to JESUS asking The FATHER for deliverance without any residue of pride.

Yes, it is true, this type of wisdom is hellish pride. If we do not rid ourselves of this family, we will eventually find that our end will be destruction. The heart and mind have been set on a course of earthly things as we bask in our own glory and serve our own idea of who god is.

This wisdom is hellish and is disguised in all things earthly, it seduces because it is sensual, exciting our senses to be satisfactorily fed because of its lustful appetite. This evil gratification is carnal, completely fleshy and there is nothing holy about it. It keeps us devoted to its demonic indulgences.

Be honest if you can and self-examine yourself or ask someone that you know who will remain impartial to speak with you about your character, the good as well as the bad. We all have flaws, and it is important to our spiritual growth that we be examined by the Word of GOD.

That wisdom that we pride ourselves on is demonic and it has kept us carnal long enough. It is time that we are set free from all division, envy, and strife that we have blindly taken part in and believe that our Holy GOD is pleased by our actions. My GOD is not the author of confusion nor of any evil thing that is still attached to us.

Now, finally, I get to write about Heavenly Wisdom. This Wisdom Is a person in fact He is one of the seven Spirits around the throne of GOD, [Rev. 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, and 5:6]. When we speak through the Spirit of Wisdom only those who are wise can comprehend thoroughly. Because the Wisdom of GOD is a mystery to all whose hearts are not filled up by HIM. And as I wrote the characteristics above regarding hellish wisdom, I too will provide the characteristics of Heavenly Wisdom.

  • Pure – Is genuine, free from carnal/moral defilement, guilt, incorruptible, real, true, and unadulterated.
  • Peaceable – Free from public commotion, feuds, or quarrels, is quiet, not violent, and undisturbed.
  • Gentle – Is meek, mild, soft, soothing, not harsh, rough, severe, or wild.

Heavenly Wisdom is willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, which is the showing of favoritism. He’s not biased, His judgments cannot become warped, and He is without hypocrisy. He will keep us living in love without conditions or hypocrisy and hating all that is evil, as we hopefully desire to cling to all that is good.

Spirit of Wisdom will give us the knowledge we seek, but we must ask of Him daily. For example, I ask daily for my portion of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom just for today. He helps in keeping us patient and kind in every area that we are to be a reflection of JESUS. He helps us to endure through the Word of GOD the purification that we all must partake in. In this, we can be obedient to the truth having a sincere love for people especially our siblings in CHRIST JESUS.

Hellish wisdom is deception at work. While Heavenly Wisdom sows the fruits of righteousness. The work of righteousness is evident, it is peace. And its effect is assurance and quietness forever.

If you have honestly self-examined yourself or asked someone that you trust who will be impartial to examine your character good and bad. Then you are well on your way to breaking up that fallow/unsown ground of the heart and mind. You are ready to reap mercy because you know that now is the time to seek The LORD. Now, is the time that we stop sowing to the flesh, we owe the flesh nothing but to bath and clothe. Remember what the scripture teaches us in Galatians 6:8, he/she who sows to his/her flesh will of the flesh reap corruption. This is from hellish, worldly wisdom. But Heavenly Wisdom causes us to sow in the Spirit and of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Ask The FATHER for Heavenly Wisdom and HE will give liberally because this is an attribute of the fruit of righteousness which is by CHRIST JESUS to the glory and praise of GOD.
