Take this rod.

And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do signs. Exodus 4:17.

 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:23-24.

Jesus Christ is the wisdom and power of God. He may not appeal to some but that does not change his status. This wisdom gives life to the dead; it swallows up death in victory. It is for the living and delivers from death. The word of God is the wisdom bank for life and eternity. The anointing quicken the word to come alive. What is considered foolishness by many is Gods wisdom in manifestation. The same wisdom is seen in the elect.

Just as the world have value for Christ, don’t expect your wisdom to be celebrated. The called, elect, chosen and justified are given the wisdom of God. Those that are armed with the wisdom and power of God live as signs. The signs are in Christ, those that posses this rod reign in life. The signs that follow you is determined by the rod you possess. The same God and the same rod in Egypt that made Joseph a ruler is in Christ. That rod of Joseph preserved Egypt as it is today. The same wisdom and power turned Moses the fugitive to a deliverer. That experience is replayed at every Passover. That rod is the foundation of the nation of Israel; their rod of defence. The same rod was in Daniel making him the first among the best in Babylon. In your time, you shall not be least on the list.

The rod of wisdom and power in Christ makes you the first among the best.

Take this word and let the signs follow; the rod is Christ. Where men sigh, you shall be a sign. It’s your heritage in Christ. Only the called, chosen, elect and justified that are entitled to this rod. “But wisdom is justified of all her children.”Luke 7:35.

“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.”Isaiah 8:18.

#I am Joseph.

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:6-8.

The wisdom of God is not for all and not in all. Wisdom is personalized and a person and ordained for our glory. Jesus is the wisdom and power of God. The chosen, elect, called are recipients of the hidden wisdom and power of God. The wisdom and power of God are keys to distinction in life. The best should lead the rest; God’s wisdom terminates worldly wisdom. The chosen, called and elect are seen in every generation. They are saviours, solution providers, and pacesetters, first among the best. Joseph was distinguished because Egypt recognized the wisdom of God in him. Egypt was preserved by the wisdom of God at work in Joseph. Oh that my nation will find its own Joseph’s and not Balak. Every generation that ignores or disdains the wisdom of God is doomed.

Corruption elevates foolishness over the wisdom of God. Such nations pay dearly for foolishness. When the wisdom and power of God comes, that of the world is subdued. Until the elect with this wisdom is found, the destiny of men and nations are bound.

Do not assume wisdom, it is hidden in a mystery and revealed to the chosen. It is given freely, and obtained by the revelation of the word of God. The wisdom of God is in levels, your faithfulness determines influence. The wisdom for distinction is revealed to you now. Be the answer and solution provider to every age old question around you. Interprete dreams, give visions, offer direction, lead the way. Become the Joseph of your family, neighbourhood, community and nation.

“And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it:and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me:God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.”Genesis 41:15-16.

Save a life.  

And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Genesis 45:7-8.

The wisdom of God always preserves and saves. Every rod of wisdom is not of God, you can confirm which wisdom is at work. Every wisdom is recognized by the works. The wisdom of God gives life, while the wisdom the world kills. God’s wisdom saves. The number of wars currently going on in the world is an indicator. Every rod that destroys another to gain influence or affluence is not of God. Christ was crucified so that we might be saved. God is always on a mission to save not to kill. His wisdom in Joseph was for the salvation of Egypt not its destruction.

If God has a plan and interest in a nation how much more your life. Every plan that destroys another to gain power or influence is worldly. The wisdom of God ends wars, conflicts and prevents genocide. God’s wisdom saves! Check your wisdom, is it killing or saving lives? Jesus is the saviour of the world, his wisdom always saves a life or lives. The living speak life, the dead kill others; you’re a picture of your wisdom. The good news is that your wisdom can be changed. Those that receive Christ Jesus as lord also obtain life and wisdom at once. Your wisdom shall not perish with you. The saved are safe with the wisdom of God to give life to others.

“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation:the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”Isaiah 33:6

. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”John 10:10.

Wisdom from above

 

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. James 3:15-16.

There are different kinds of wisdom, earthly, sensual and devilish or diabolic. They are all noted in the scriptures. By their fruits, they are known. There is a wisdom that descends from above, that is Godly wisdom. When wisdom is not from above it falls into one or all of the three categories. The wisdom of God stands out distinctly but the other three are intimately related.

Earthly wisdom is for survival, it is limited to living on earth; it’s natural. Sensual wisdom is common sense and evidence, science inclusive.

Sensual wisdom is the foundation of discoveries in science, medicine and technology. We all use them, they keep changing with time.

Devilish wisdom is very popular in some regions of the world. It is powered by superstitions, sacrifices and events that lack explanations. It is founded on demon worship and idolatry; voodoo and juju. Many of us born in Africa are recipients or participants in these.

The earthly, sensual and devilish is the wisdom of the world. They are used interchangeably for strife, envy, confusion and every evil work. The wisdom of the world kills, steals and destroys. The wisdom of God is domiciled in the man from above; Jesus Christ. That wisdom is encountered in him; it’s a rod of offense and defense. That which is from above is always above all other. Heavenly wisdom is eon years above the worldly; earthly, sensual and devilish. By heavenly wisdom, terminate every worldly influence with detrimental effect. You don’t have to live victimized by worldly wisdom, connect to heavenly wisdom. He that is from above gives life to reign above all other wisdom.

“He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.”John 3:31.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”John 10:10.

Certain Victory

 

 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt:and Moses took the rod of God in his hand. In the contest of life all types of wisdom are on display. Exodus 4:20.

For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents:but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. Exodus 7:12.

Every man shows his own wisdom; some for good and others for evil – Depending on the wisdom type; Godly, earthly, sensual and devilish. There are no neutral grounds in these things, the wisdom available is used. Expecting one to play within the confines of a particular wisdom type may not be tenable. They are used in the offices, boardrooms, market places, marriages every day. Each man casts his rod, the rules of engagement is clear; use what you have. Those that operate only earthly and sensual wisdom are usually the victims. Refusing to be drawn into the contest leads to continuous victimization. When the rod of the wicked is stretched out, earthly & sensual wisdom fails. The best does not always win, the wiser wins.

The wisdom that swallows up another determines the outcome of events. Many people opt out when demonic wisdom is in use. Moses drew them into a contest with the rod of God. It’s time to have the rod of God for life contests everyday and everywhere. God’s wisdom is for overcoming life contests; earthly, sensual and devilish. These contests are inevitable but your victory undeniable. The word of God is the rod of God, the Holy Spirit directs its use.

Every battle in life is winnable, every challenge overcomeable and every disease curable with this rod. The victims wait but he that is born of God overcomes the world by faith. Your faith is the victory that overcomes always, everywhere and every time. Use the rod of God, use the word of God for certain victory in life. The rod of Christ swallows up, deprives and destroys the wisdom of the world.

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”2 Corinthians 2:14.

“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world:and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”1 John 5:4.

Sure conquest, no contest.

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2:6.

Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: Ephesians 1:21.

Life they say is in levels and men are in sizes.

Every rod of wisdom has a location and those that operate it dwell there. Your dwelling determines the wisdom that one can operate. Those that live on the earth operate earthly wisdom naturally. Living with “higher level of consciousness” gives access to sensual wisdom. It is evident by the numerous qualifications and certifications. Living under the earth or the low places of life entitles to demonic wisdom. The covens, cults, lodges and spiritual temples are their operational base. Those that live in the heavenly places have heavenly or Godly wisdom.

The contest is on but it’s not over untill you win. Sitting in heavenly places gives positional advantage, the seat of God’s wisdom and power. Apart from seeing the operations of wickedness, you are far from their reach. This wisdom and power is not only for this world, it is for the the world to come. You may not see physical rods turning to snakes but the contest is on. By the wisdom of God you are positioned to win always. Your position guarantees your victory, heavenly wisdom puts you in charge. Principalities, powers, might and dominion are like insects in your presence. Just one word is all it takes for them to perish.

The wisdom of God is the weapon for your conquest in life. The conquest was won before the contest began; no contest zone Heavenly wisdom or the wisdom of God is your guarantee for a wining lifestyle. Those that live in heavenly places are too defended to be victims of spiritual insect; witches, wizards, sorcerers, necromancers and the like. Those that dwell in heavenly places win by the word of God. The contest is not over until the wisdom of God wins. Your conquest is sure for all dwellers of heavenly places in Christ.

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”2 Corinthians 10:4-5

Wisdom to reign

There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler: Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place. I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth. Ecclesiastes 10:5-7.

Wisdom is the reigning key. Only the wise are permitted to be in charge. This may contrast your experience where the best are relegated. That is the corruption of the world. The noise makers are reckoned with as news makers and relevant partners. Just as the saying goes ” empty vessels make the loudest noise” These persons have the right diction and expressions yet lacking solutions. Several opinions are offered but not solutions. Foolishness is elevated and wisdom downgraded. Wisdom reigns with practical solutions not opinions.

The best should lead the rest, the wise should be the first. Where wisdom is relegated, confusion and darkness is inevitable. When the best stand aside and the worst stand before every evil work prevails and becomes the norm. Mediocrity is celebrated in place of wisdom. The wisdom of God is your sure key to reign irrespective of the situation. Joseph was not elected, neither was Moses selected by men. God’s wisdom will mark you out for the top. The wisdom of God becomes evident where disorder prevails.

This wisdom offers solution when confusion overtakes foolishness. When the wisdom of man fail, the wisdom of God is sought after. Abide in the wisdom of God, it’s you answer to the chaos in the world. Reign with the wisdom of God, you are born to reign by wisdom. The wisdom of God shall crown you for life and eternity.

“Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.”Proverbs 8:14-16.

Wisdom rules.

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Psalms 110:1-2.

Wisdom is a necessity for kingdom enthronement. Those that possess the rod of wisdom reign in life. It gives the elect seat over challenges, situations and circumstances. Wisdom puts in charge, wisdom rules. The word of God is the wisdom of God revealed. It grants eternal solutions to temporal situations. Those that are seated in heavenly places live by the wisdom of God. Those that posses solutions are unruffled by challenges. Joseph was not trying to convince Pharaoh of his solution, Daniel was not competing with other presidents for favour. Jesus knew what to do. You will know what to do to be in charge and rule.

Wisdom is knowing what to do from the word of God. Wisdom grants a seat among the great. It terminates competition and provokes excellence. When wisdom seats, the forces of heaven take over the contest. Those that posses this brand of wisdom seat together with Christ. Whatever is available in Christ is available to them. Every situation becomes overcomeable, challenges surmountable and sicknesses curable. The wisdom of God crushes every contrary situation event and challenge.

Wisdom rules without rules, wins without war and reigns without slaves. Gods wisdom rules always and in all ages. With all your getting, get this wisdom; it’s the principal thing. You never lived without an encounter with the wisdom of God.

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.”Proverbs 4:7-8.
