Who Is Foolish?

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 Corinthians chapter 1:

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written:

​​​“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

​​And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;

23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,

24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

It is amusing to look back at the “wisdom of the wise” of this world in just about any category of history.  First of all, they are all dead and their wisdom did not defy physical death.  Secondly, those who accumulated wealth did not take any of it with them.  What was the point to their excessive focus on wealth?  None.  Thirdly, most doctors did not outlive many of their patients so their training did not extend their lives.  So much for the wisdom of the world.

FATHER’S Wisdom surpasses man’s ability to fully understand HIS ways.  After all, man was created to be lower than GOD, not equal, thus his capacity to bring the earth into full subjection without GOD just won’t happen. 

FATHER established a set of laws governing all aspects of HIS creation and left nothing to chance.  Each law complements the other laws in some order and fashion.  Is it better to seek to discover, know, and use all the laws FATHER established or know the ONE WHO established the laws and be led by HIS SPIRIT and HIS Wisdom in all matters?  What a simple answer yet man continues to select and be guided by the wrong answer and finds himself perpetually in bondage under the law of scarcity.

Men go to war because of their scarcity orientation and their quest for power which is always short-lived.  What foolishness!  Men and women try to change their gender because of their confused emotional state.  Did FATHER get it wrong in the womb?  I think not.  HIS Wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skill were all fully activate when HE formed each of us in the womb.  Sorry, HE did not make a mistake so the solution to the confusion isn’t resolved by surgery and drugs, it is found elsewhere.

Jesus consistently defied man’s wisdom as He preached and healed the people.  The brightest doctors of the time were unable to heal the people yet Jesus healed them all.  To this day, modern medicine cannot restore a leper but Jesus did and still can.  To this day, the brightest minds cannot multiply loaves and fishes to feed the hungry.  Jesus revealed the foolishness of man during His earthly ministry.  Man’s stubbornness is centered around his ego.  How wise is it to live a life of scarcity while you are trying to disprove the power of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Doesn’t wisdom simply tell us to look at the history of the earth and man to see those who were blessed and those who were cursed?  Why should any of us spend one more day pursuing man’s solution to the problems persistently plaguing the world when we have a solution to our problems staring us in the eye?  Quit listening to your ego’s attempt to call anything foolish which you don’t understand.  Simply be led by The Holy Spirit and fellowship with FATHER for HE will instruct us in Truth and lead us into all understanding.  The simplicity of HIS directives will defy the wisdom of the world and they will stand in bewilderment at our success.  Who are truly the foolish ones?
