Blessed is the man that has found wisdom... Proverbs 3:13a
Wisdom for the End
Times is a commentary on the first twelve chapters of the book of Proverbs,
and may be used in a group study, or read by oneself. For easier study, the
scriptures are included inline with the commentary.
The book of Proverbs has to do with acquiring the
understanding and wisdom to interpret parables and the words and enigmas of the
wise (many of which are prophetic). It especially
uses contrast as a method of making its point on multiple levels. For example:
- The fool is contrasted with the wise person. “Fool”
comes from an obscure root word meaning “to be perverse.” The fool refuses to
receive correction even though it would be to his benefit.
- The wise, faithful woman is contrasted with
another type of woman who is the path to death and perdition.
- Good friendships are contrasted with evil ones.
There is a smooth way that seems right to the natural man,
but in reality this is the road to perdition. There’s another way where it
seems that we’ll lose not only the things of this world – things that we worked
hard for and valued – but possibly even our own life. This way is uphill and
against all natural odds. Yet this is the way to life. This is the way to the
blessing. This is wisdom.
