Gilbert House Fellowship #118: Proverbs 7-12

hear-for-i-will-speakWISDOM IS a goddess? There are some who would draw that conclusion after reading Proverbs 8. However, in Hebrew, the word “wisdom” is grammatically feminine although there is nothing physical about the term.

We discuss the idea that Wisdom was a member of Yahweh’s divine council, a lesser elohim serving His purposes, although it is just as likely that the author of Proverbs 8 was using personification, a literary device that depicts an idea as a person — e.g., “Sin is crouching at the door” (Gen. 4:7) or “Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death” (James 1:15).

    I think you are completely WRONG about our earth being a sphere ! It is a flat earth and these people along NASA have been lying to us about the shape of the earth. There scientific proof that there’s no curvature in horizon! Very different disappointing! The earth being doing is another lie from the Satanist cabal ruling this earthly domain! Then if you take go down to the underworld where the men of old are held in hades & tartarus and they rise UP from there in the end times . How in earth can we be living on a sphere. It’s a deception right out of the pits of hell. Started with Augustine & Pythagoras
