Hello, John and Doves,In whatever time we have left, we preach the Everlasting Gospel of Christ Crucified.Some will believe, and some will not.Of those who refuse to come to God by faith now, God will, in His grace, save some in the midst of Great Tribulation.It is still true that "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." James 4:6God's foolishness versus Men's wisdom:
1 Corinthians 1:19-25 KJV
“For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where [is] the wise? where [is] the scribe? where [is] the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, 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.
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
1 Corinthians 1:26-29 NLT (v. 26) and KJV
“Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
“And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are:
“That no flesh should glory in his presence.”
1 Corinthians -20
“Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world’s standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say,
‘He traps the wise
in the snare of their own cleverness.[Job ]’
‘The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise;
He knows they are worthless. [Psalm 94:11]’”
Ha Mashiach, Baruch HaShem Yeshua
