God’s Thoughts to Me
Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns. She has prepared a great banquet, mixed the wines, and set the table (Proverbs 9:1-2, NLT).
Banquet of Grace
In the year 33 AD the King of Love paid the full blood ransom for the freedom of a dying world who was held captive in the evil clutches of the prince of darkness.
This imposter was a cruel monster who held the keys of death. Bruised, broken and baptized in His own blood, the King gave His Spirit into His Father’s hand.
With His last breath, He broke the curse of sin and death and defeated the foe who held humanity enslaved in the fetters of destruction.
His last breath exploded delightfully through the universe into grace and forgiveness, twinkling like fairy dust of love, inviting all to the marriage feast of the Lamb.
He reconciled Himself to those He loved with endless love, not counting their sins and transgressions against Him anymore, welcoming all His lost ones back into His loving Embrace.
But like a roaring lion, the dark one disguised himself as an immoral woman … a seductress … a woman called Folly.
She was flirting with the naive who lacked common sense and wisdom, sitting in the doorway of her house of ill repute.
Her lewd voice was like a hypotonic song, seducing men into her poisonous web.
She was dressed in robes of sensuality and lured them with sly words into her house for a night of passion while leading them to their graves with her caresses.
She has spread her bed with a beautiful blanket of wealth and prosperity. She has perfumed her linen with the deadly religious perfume of myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.
She intoxicated them with the poisonous wine she has mixed from hatred and deceit.
But the beautiful Lady Wisdom raises her voice at the crossroads of every soul, urging all with ears to hear to follow her on the Way of Grace.
She was appointed in ages past before creation to lead the childlike out of this trap of death and darkness into the Kingdom of Light and Love.
She was the architect at the side of the Creator, His constant delight. She has forever been singing songs of joy over the those He created for His glory.
Much love and sweet blessings xx
