TOPIC : UNDERSTANDING THE VARIOUS KINDS OF WISDOM


Scripture : James 3: 17. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Beloved I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Wherever you see creativity in display, wisdom is present and wherever you meet quarrel and fighting, wisdom is absent! Today, we shall briefly examine the two kinds of wisdom!

What are the two kinds of wisdom?

Wisdom is largely grouped as earthly/worldly and heavenly wisdom.


1. Earthly / worldly Wisdom
James 3: 14. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

The earthly / worldly wisdom includes:

a. Natural wisdom : This is inherent in every man, you are just born with it. The older you become the wiser you become because it is garnered through experience.

b. The Sophia or Intellectual wisdom : This wisdom arises from all academic work, from science, technology and every other intellectual work. It is simply book wisdom, it comes from books and ends with books.

c. Satanic wisdom : This is what the occult trade with, those who have formed alliance with the devil such as witches and wizards, are loaded with this kind of wisdom.

The scripture reveals it’s nature:

I. Strife/ quarreling and fighting(Jam.3:14): Every home where there is strife all the time, check it out, selfishness is at work there and selfishness is a product of earthly wisdom
II. Envying(Jam.3:14): any where you see envying on the display, the wisdom at work there is earthly wisdom or satanic wisdom.

For example, age forging just to get a job, by the time you forge your age to ensure you get a job or remain on the job because you are afraid of being retired, can you also adjust every other area of your life? Certificate forgery is not the wisdom of God!

III. Confusion(Jam.3:16): The reason why men run into confusion is just because of this earthly wisdom.

IV. Evil work(Jam.3:16) such as assassination, scam, betrayal, duping, kidnapping, forgery etc stems from this earthly wisdom that is devilish in origin.

Trying to outsmart another person is not the wisdom of God, but that is the wisdom we parade every day even as Christians. Today, the Holy Ghost is calling us to repentance!


2. Wisdom from above /Divine Wisdom :
James 3: 17. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.


This the kind of wisdom that God gives.
It has the following characteristics:

1. It is pure (Jam.3:17): There is no iniquity in it, it does not operate to fall another man
2. It is peaceful(Jam.3:17) : Opposite to that of earthly wisdom, it seeks for peace. This is what runs peaceful homes.
3. It is gentle (Jam.3:17) : It is not harsh, or treat people without a care
4. It is considerate (Jam.3:17): It considers the other person before acting, it doesn’t consider himself alone
5. It is submissive (Jam.3:17) : nothing arrogant as seen amongst the intellectuals
6. Without partiality or hypocrisy (Jam.3:17) : It does not show hypocrisy to one person or the other.

Beloved, are you a leader? Which I know you are because everyone is a leader at a certain level! What kind of wisdom have you been operating with? If it is earthly or devilish wisdom, it is time to repent and turn to the LORD for divine wisdom. Why parading the fake when genuine wisdom is available for you in Christ Jesus? It is time to seek for that wisdom from above.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Your decision today determines where you will spend eternity tomorrow.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Lord, I repent from parading earthly and devilish wisdom and I receive grace to pursue divine wisdom from today in Jesus name.


Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy the desire for the wisdom of God to come upon you now in the name of Jesus.
– Wherever, you are confused right now, receive the wisdom and strategy that clears every confusion in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
