There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
— Proverb 21:30
Let all who love the LORD Jehovah say, “Amen!” He is our God, and
none in heaven or in earth can resist Him or question Him! Glory! He
does according to His own will in the army of heaven and among the
inhabitants of the earth! Glory! Confess your rebellion! Humble
yourself at His feet! Believe His word! Praise and worship Him
He reduced the greatest monarch in the history of the world to a
grass-eating ox, until that man blessed and praised the King of
heaven (Dan 4:1-37)! It is recorded in the chronicles of the
Babylonian Empire! It was published throughout the earth in every
known language to every known nation! That monarch wrote:
“And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto
heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the
most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose
dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from
generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are
reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of
heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his
hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? “¦ Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise
and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth,
and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to
abase” (Dan 4:34-37).
Here is the beginning of wisdom (1:7), the fountain of understanding
(9:10), and the source of knowledge (1:29). Fully believing the
sovereignty of the LORD Jehovah is the essential basis for right
thinking and right living. Let every reader take careful heed!
Mighty Pharaoh, absolute king and god of Egypt, said to Jehovah’s
preacher, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let
Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go” (Ex 5:2)
. After ravaging his nation with ten plagues and killing the nation’s
firstborn, the LORD took the wheels off Pharaoh’s royal chariot and
let him think about drowning for a few minutes, before suffocating
him under the waters of the Red Sea!
Benhadad, king of Syria, thought Jehovah and Israel were limited to
fighting on hills, but God destroyed his army in the plain and with a
falling wall (I Kings 20:22-30)! King Ahab thought he could disguise
himself in battle and overthrow the LORD’s prophecy of his death, but
Jehovah sent a random arrow through a joint of his armor (I Kings 22:
30-40)! Sennacherib, king of Assyria, blasphemed Jehovah profanely.
He lost his army in a single night to the angel of the LORD, and his
own sons murdered him, while he was asking his pagan god why he had
lost the battle so horribly (II Chron 32:21)!
Herod the Great thought he could stop Him by killing the children of
Bethlehem, but he died miserably a few months later, with Jesus safe
in Egypt (Matt 2:1-20)! The Jews thought they could kill Jesus and
eliminate this righteous Man from their nation, but He returned with
armies to miserably destroy those murderers and burn up their city
(Matt 22:1-7)! They cried, “We will not have this man to reign over
us” (Luke 19:14); they said, “His blood be on us, and on our
children” (Matt 27:25)! And so it was! Jesus reigned over them anyway
and avenged His blood on them in 70 AD with Roman armies.
The LORD Jehovah is King of kings! He is Lord of lords! The president,
Congress, Supreme Court, and all other elected and appointed
officials of our nation should humble themselves before Him. Any
legislation, interpretation, or action contrary to His expressed will
in the Holy Scriptures will soon receive frightful and horrific
Korah and his cronies thought they could bark against Moses, so the
LORD opened the earth and swallowed them and their families alive
(Num 16:1-34)! Ananias and Sapphira thought they could lie a little
regarding their real estate proceeds, but the LORD killed them (Ac 5:
1-11). Reader, do you hear and obey the messenger God has sent you?
He is the Potter; humanity is mere clay (Rom 9:21)! Men do not have
the right to even question Him (Rom 9:20)! He chooses some human clay
for objects of His wrath and power by destroying them; and He chooses
other human clay for objects of His glory and mercy (Rom 9:22-24)!
Give God the glory! Humble yourself before Him! Beg for mercy!
Evolutionists reject a Creator, but they cannot evolve away death and
their appointment to meet Him at the horrifying bar of divine Justice
(Heb 9:27)! Suicidal fools think they can end their guilt-producing
conscience by self-murder, only to wake up facing the Dread Sovereign
of Heaven declaring that murder deserves an eternal, conscious hell!
Adam and Eve thought they could cover their guilt and shame with fig
leaves and hide among the trees of the Garden from Jehovah, just as
men try to cover their sins and hide to this day. But they were
discovered and condemned! Jonah thought he could escape his call to
the ministry by fleeing to Tarshish, but the LORD sent a whale to
There is no wisdom against the LORD’s wisdom, so choose His wisdom
(Ps 119:128; Is 8:20). There is no wisdom against the LORD’s
providence, so humbly accept your circumstances with composure and
contentment (Phil 4:11; I Tim 6:6). There is no wisdom against the
LORD’s judgment, so obey Him with a cheerful heart (Num 32:23).
Do not imagine or think for a minute that you can sin and escape Him
knowing and judging your sin. Do not deceive yourself that you can
compromise His rules of wisdom and succeed. Do not think you can take
precautionary measures to deliver yourself from His judgment. Do not
imagine that you have discovered better wisdom than His Scriptures.
Rather than resist or rebel, repent and reform! He will have mercy!
How will you escape the LORD? Does your hypocrisy deceive Him? Will
you weigh out your good works before Him? Will you move Him with
emotion in the Day of Judgment? You are a great fool, if you trust
any of these delusions. Beg Him for mercy! Now!
Horses (Ps 33:17), chariots (Ps 20:7), nor princes or men (Ps 146:3-4)
can deliver you. Humble yourself before Him today, believe His Word,
confess your sins, and trust His providence. Stand in awe, and sin
not (Ps 4:4). Prepare to meet thy God (Amos 4:12).
