Welcome to Our Church
Where-- "WISDOM Is the Principal Thing."(Proverbs 4:7).
Greetings In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I pray that your visit today may abound in WISDOM--The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, you may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge-- that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:18,19).
O the depth of the riches--both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33).
Our focus at "The Wisdom Centre" is on Building Spiritual Houses--for a habitation of God through the Spirit. (1 Peter 2:5, Ephesians 2:20-22).
When Moses was about to build the tabernacle, God said, "See that you make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount. (Hebrews 5:8).
The pattern God has given us is Matthew 7:24. "Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock."
For a solid foundation, we are instructed to hear these sayings and do them.
In his first public sermon-- "The Sermon on the Mount" recorded in St. Matthew's gospel, chapters 5,6,7-- Jesus said:
Blessed are the merciful...
Blessed are the pure in Heart...
Blessed are the Peacemakers...
Let your light so shine...
Our righteousness must exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees...
Love your enemies.
Be ye therefore perfect...
Throughout these three chapters, Jesus gives us the blueprint for building spiritual houses; "Hear "The Word" and do it."
In His closing remarks, He said, " But, every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it." (Matthew 7:26).
"My Assignment," therefore, is to preach and teach the word of God. To echo all that Jesus said--emphasizing the importance of doing, and not just hearing the word. (James 1:22).
I'm convinced, that if churchgoers will not heed, these sayings of Jesus's sermon, then all other preaching is in vain.
"God is not a man; He cannot lie." (Numbers23:19). Therefore, whenever he speaks, obedience is the only expected response. Furthermore, Jesus said, " And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46).
My brother, my sister, God is much more concerned about our obedience, than our repentance; because repentance, is never a substitute for obedience.
Therefore, My prayer and desire for you-- is that, "...you be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and Spiritual understanding... that, you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God." (Colossians 1:9, 4:12).

Behold, "The Fear of the Lord, that is Wisdom," (Job 28:28)
"Only fools despise wisdom..." (Proverbs 1:7).
Yea, "Wisdom is too high for a fool..." (Proverbs 24:7).
Wisdom (02451)(chokmah from the verb chakam - to be wise) is the ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding. Wisdom is the ability to see something from God’s viewpoint. Wisdom is “God’s character in the many practical affairs of life.”

but WISDOM is from "on HIGH" (from God)!
