Welcome to: The Wisdom Centre-Burlington New Jersey.
Where-- "WISDOM" Is The Principal Thing. (Proverbs 4:7).
Greetings In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I pray that your visit today may abound in WISDOM--The eyes of your understanding being enlightened, you may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge-- that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:18,19).
O the depth of the riches--both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33).
However, In Christ are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:3).
Our "Assignment" at The Wisdom Centre-- Is To Build Spiritual Houses--for an habitation of God, through the Spirit. (1 Peter 2:5, Ephesians 2:20-22, 1Corinthians 12:12-27)).
When Moses was about to build the tabernacle, God said, "See that you make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount. (Hebrews 5:8).
The pattern God has given us is,-- "Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock."(Matthew 7:24).
To build we are instructed to hear the word and do it.
We hear a lot but do so little.
In his first public sermon ("The Sermon on the Mount" recorded in St. Matthew's gospel, chapters 5,6,7).
Blessed are the merciful... Are you showing mercy?
Blessed are the pure in Heart... What is the state of your heart?
Blessed are the Peacemakers... Are you striving for peace in your home among your own family?
Let your light so shine... Is your light shining or is it under a bushel?
Your righteousness must exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees... Who are you trying to please?
Love your enemies. If we can't love our brethren, how will we love our enemies?
Be ye therefore perfect...God has given us the five-fold ministry-- for the perfecting of the saints.
Throughout these three chapters, Jesus gives specific instructions on how we are to build spiritual houses. Hear "The Word" and do it."
In His closing remarks, Jesus said, " But, every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rains descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it." (Matthew 7:26).
Therefore, as "Pastor' my responsibility is to preach and teach the word of God. Repeating all that Jesus said--emphasizing the importance of doing the word, and not just hearing the word. (James 1:22).
As my mentor says..."Obedience Is The Only Proof Of Your Faith In God." (Dr. Mike Murdock).
"God is not a man; He cannot lie." (Numbers23:19). Therefore, whenever he speaks, obedience is the only expected response. Furthermore, Jesus said, " And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?"(Luke 6:46).
My brother, my sister, God is much more concerned about obedience, rather than our repentance.
Repentance Is Never A Substitute For Obedience.
My prayer and desire for you-- is that, "...you be filled with the knowledge of His will in all Wisdom and Spiritual understanding... that, you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God." (Colossians 1:9, 4:12).
Maurice W. Armstrong (Pastor).
