“A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; he rages against all wise judgment.
2 A fool has no delight in understanding, but in expressing his own heart.
3 When the wicked comes, contempt comes also; and with dishonor comes reproach.
4 The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.” Proverbs 18:1-4 NKJV.
“Then The LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said: 2 “Who is this who darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
4 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 “Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth and issued from the womb; 9 when I made the clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band; 10 when I fixed My limit for it, and set bars and doors; 11 when I said, ‘This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!’
12 “Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, 13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it?
14 It takes on form like clay under a seal, and stands out like a garment,” Job 38:1-14 NKJV.
“This is the time to enter into your Prayer Chambers. This is the time when you must seek Me above all else.
Why would you seek out your leaders and your favorite preachers? Why would you seek man rather than Me? Is not man fallible? Is not man just a vessel?
You seek out sensation rather than wisdom. You seek out those things that would entertain you. If you want to be entertained then go see a movie. If you want truth, then come to Me; but truth is not always an easy thing to grasp.
You want the promises of a better day ahead, and yet am I not the one that allows the sun to come up?
Am I not the one that brings an old man or woman to their old age?
By Me nations rise and fall again. By Me the prophetic pages of the book are turned forward.
Do you think that your favorite YouTube preachers have more wisdom than I?
Do you think that what you read on the internet is always filled full of truth?
A child would have more truth than some of these.
So you sit in your houses made of stone and wood, and you search for truth. But I AM the Great I AM. I gave Moses the tablets of stone; I parted the sea for them as the children of Israel left Egypt. I fed them in the wilderness.
And yet what of today, you might say? Those great stories were from the past, you say.
Do I not intercede on behalf of the affairs of men and women?
Have I not still wrought miracles?
Do I not end the reign of ruthless leaders?
Do I not bring to completion those things that you have asked for?
But you stomp and plead with Me; thinking that I will answer your prayers when some of them are against my will. Some of you have stomped and pleaded like the prophets of Baal. You cannot make Me do what is not in My Will!
The times are in My Hand; I deliver a nation and I allow another one to fall. You cannot bring to greatness that which has already fallen.”
