Proverbs 8:20 I (Wisdom, Jesus, Word of God) lead in
the Way of Righteousness, in the midst of the paths
of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me
to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
John 14 15 If ye love Me, keep My Command-
ments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall
give you another Comforter, that He may abide
with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of Truth;
whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth
Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him;
for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 16 13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth,
is come, He will guide you into all Truth:
for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever
He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew
you things to come. 14 He shall glorify Me: for He
shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.
The Holy Spirit speaks the Will and Mind of God.
All the Trinity agree in One.
22 The LORD possessed Me in the beginning of His
Way, before His Works of old. 23 I was set up from
everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth
John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the
Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The
same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things
were made by Him; and without Him was not any
thing made that was made. 4 In Him was life; and
the life was the light of men. 14 And the Word was
made flesh, and dwelt among us, …
Wisdom = Word of God = Jesus
24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth;
when there were no fountains abounding with
water. 25 Before the mountains were settled, before
the hills was I brought forth: 26 While as yet He had
not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest
part of the dust of the world.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there:
when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
28 When He established the clouds above: when He
strengthened the fountains of the deep: 29 When He
gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should
not pass His Commandment: when He appointed
the foundations of the earth: 30 Then I was by Him,
as one brought up with Him: and I was daily His
delight, rejoicing always before Him; 31 Rejoicing
in the habitable part of His earth; and My delights
were with the sons of men. Jesus
The Son of God declares Himself to have been
engaged in the creation of the world. How able,
how fit is the Son of God to be the Savior of the
world, who was the Creator of it! The Son of God
was ordained, before the world, to that great work.
Does he delight in saving wretched sinners, and
shall not we delight in His Salvation?
Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary.
We are His creation; let us receive
32 Now therefore hearken unto Me, O ye children:
for blessed are they that keep My Ways. 33 Hear
(same word as hearken) instruction, and be wise,
and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth
Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the
posts of My doors.
To hearken unto the Lord and to His instruction
Is to be wise and to be blessed.
To hearken is to listen with full attention,
Hear intelligently, and

Jesus) findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the
Not only do men and women need to
receive Jesus as Savior, we must
submit unto Him as Lord of our lives.
Willingly obey every Word of God,
as we are led and empowered by
the Holy Spirit of God.
36 But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own
soul: all they that hate Me love death.
This is the wrong choice.
God has given us the free will to choose:
Love Him, obey Him and be blessed.
Or hate Him and His Word and be damned.
God didn’t create us to be robots, automatically
doing exactly what we were created to do.
The Lord loves us and wants us to
willingly love Him in return.
1 John 5 2 By this we know that we love the
children of God, when we love God, and keep His
Commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that
we keep His Commandments: and His Command-
ments are not grievous (burdensome).
Not only does the Lord teach us how to live,
He gives us the Power to do what He says.
