Proverbs 29:18, says: " Where There Is No Revelation The People Shall Perish "... and, around the world we are now beginning to see It's Quite Literal Fulfillment!

The Book of Everyday Wisdom....
There was once a time when The Book Of Proverbs was highly valued for it's Fundamental Framework To Obtaining Wisdom; it was taught in many of our own public schools; and continually referenced throughout the literature of the day.

In fact, the entire spiritual concept of: " Common Sense " - as many, in the west, then plainly understood it - was once firmly rooted, in That Singular Book From The Bible.

Nor, was it's own popularity as An Authoritative Means To Instruction ( so honestly ) surprising; when one frankly considers It's Own Opening Introduction - in, the very first chapter Proverbs!
" The proverbs of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel: to know Wisdom and Instruction, to perceive the words of Understanding, to receive the instruction of Wisdom, Justice, Judgment, and Equity; to give Prudence to the simple, to the young man Knowledge and Discretion
— To understand A Proverb [ A Metaphorical Statement ] and An Enigma [ A Puzzle Which Requires A Key ]; The Words Of The Wise [ Who, Of Themselves, May Seldom Speak Plainly ], and All Of Their Riddles [ In Both Word And Action ].

Thus, in the very first chapter of this book, we faithfully observe ' The First Of Three Impassioned Appeals To The Observance And Application Of Wisdom '... which, in this case, is A Call To Our Own Logical Sensibilities.

However, since some individuals respond to a different approach, There Are Still Two Other Hooks to draw the reader into Their Own Further Study Of This Book!


Now, Let's Just Consider, The Emotional ( Or, Parental ) Appeal....
" My Son, hear The Instruction Of Your Father, and do not forsake The Law Of Your Mother; for they will be a graceful ornament on your head, and chains about your neck.
My Son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. 

If They say: ' Come with us, Let us lie in wait to shed blood; Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause; Let us swallow them alive like Sheol, and whole, like those who go down to the Pit; We shall find all kinds of precious possessions, We shall fill our houses with spoil; Cast in your lot among us, Let us all have one purse '—

My Son, do not walk in the way with them, k
eep your foot from their path; for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood. Surely, in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird; but they lie in wait for their own blood; and they lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; because i
t takes away the life of its owners. " - Proverbs 1:8-19.

It's ( really ) all about Good Fishing.... 
After all, dear brothers and sisters, ' While Logic Will Sway Some, A Rational Appeal Is Far More Effective For Still Others '... and, when you need to fill your own boat, It Simply Makes A Whole Lot Of Sense To Try Different Baits On The Hook.

Come on, folks: " It Really Isn't Some Kind Of Rocket Science " - because, whether we comprehend it or not, God [ Himself ] is: " A Fisher Of Men "!


And, Now Finally, We Arrive At The Metaphorical ( Or, Philosophical ) Approach....
" Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in The Open Squares [ The Marketplaces Which The Citizens All Frequent * ]She cries out in The Chief Concourses [ The Primary Places Where The Public Gathers Each Day * ]; at the openings to the gates of the city, She speaks Her Words:

' How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? 
For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge. Turn at My Rebuke; surely I will pour out My Own Spirit upon you; and I will make My Own Words known unto you.

Because, I have called and you refused; 
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded; Because, you disdained all My Counsel; and would have none of My RebukeI also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes; when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.
Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. Because, they hated Knowledge and did not choose The Fear Of The Lord; they would have none of My Counsel and despised My Every Rebuke.

Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, a
nd be filled to the full with their own fancies. For, the turning away of the simple will slay them; and the complacency of fools will destroy them;

But, whoever listens to me will dwell safely; a
nd will be secure; without fear of evil. " - Proverbs 1:20-33.
{ **NOTE: The Open Squares as noted within this biblical passage are ( actually ): " The Marketplaces Where Everyone Must Shop And In Which All Transactions Are Now Being Made "... and they are a very clear reference to: Our Own Places Of Work, and The Places That We Invariably Shop - where, in most instances, The Radio Is Now Playing and ( almost as often ) Those Ubiquitous Television Screens Are Found Everywhere. }
{ ***NOTE: The Chief Concourses as noted in this biblical passage are ( quite literally ): " The Primary Gathering Places All Throughout Our Own City "... and, they are a very clear reference to: The Public Schools, Astrological Observatories, Scientific LaboratoriesPlaces Of WorshipLibraries, Concert Halls, Video Arcades, Art Galleries, Museums, Movie Theaters, and Theatrical Stages - upon which, All Of Our Own Cleverly Devised Stories are now being so openly displayed. }

What is The Spirit of this writing?
You see, dear brothers and sisters: ' When One Carefully Examines The Words That Are To Be Found In This Book, We Find That The Achievement Of: Knowledge, Understanding, And Wisdom - Are The Primary Concern Which Govern All Of God's Own Physical Actions '... and, in the end, The Worldwide Adoption Of All Its Own Teachings Shall Invariably Be The Only Accepted Scenario!

Because, whether you believe it or not, The Words Of God Will Always Ring True; and ( indeed ): " Where There Is No Real Spiritual Understanding The People Shall Perish "....


Ahava and Shalom.

May Yahweh's Own: Love and Peace - be, continually, upon you!
