- Proverbs 8:21-25
- Prov 8:21 (KJB)
- That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will
fill their treasures.
- Treasures - Treasury or storehouse
- Those who live on wisdom will experience the great blessing that God
will bring an abundance of spiritual treasures into their life.
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV) But we have this treasure in
earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of
us. The place where we store our spiritual
treasures is in our hearts, that is, our souls which is the essence of a
person. If you notice, the spiritual blessings are not just a few but God
promises that He will fill the treasuries.
(Eph 1:3 KJV) Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Some may read this and think that if they follow the Lord, they will be
filled with all the riches of the earth like Solomon. Remember the verse
that we read that wisdom is more valuable than rubies. The wealth of the
world is not in view but the wealth of spiritual wisdom is and we will
attain great spiritual wisdom when God fills our treasuries. Just like when
the tithe was brought into the store house (same word as treasures) in
Malachi 3:10, God promised to open the windows of Heaven and pour out a
blessing. As He fills us with spiritual wisdom, we too, receive the great
blessings of wisdom which is of an eternal nature.
(Col 2:3 KJV) In whom are hid all the treasures
of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:3 speaks of
- Prov 8:22 (KJB)
- The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of
- The great reason that we seek the wisdom of God is because God Himself
has brought this world and the universe into existence by His wisdom. God
imparts that wisdom to His children. When a person becomes saved, they will
have the wisdom of God imparted to them. Even though the Wisdom of God is
from eternity, it will always be fresh and up to date. We can use the Wisdom
of God for every situation that we encounter, from those that are obvious to
those that are questionable. When God sent the Lord Jesus Christ into this
world to die for the sins of His children, He Himself, was very wisdom
walking the earth. The Wisdom of God was manifest in Christ in the salvation
program He came to complete. Christ revealed the wisdom that was from
- Prov 8:23 (KJB)
- I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth
- The true Wisdom of God did not begin at a certain time but was always a
part of the character of God. The wisdom that God had in eternity past, He
then manifested that wisdom from the beginning of the earth and universe.
This also speaks of the eternal nature of Christ who existed in eternity
before the creation of the world and universe and then came into the world
at the appointed time. (Gal 4:4 KJV) But
when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a
woman, made under the law, We must never believe
the lie that Christ was created at the time of His earthly, virgin birth. He
is from everlasting to everlasting.
- Prov 8:24 (KJB)
- When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there
were no fountains abounding with water.
- Here we have the existence of the wisdom of God before the creation of
the world and before the oceans and even before the great depths of the
oceans were created. Even before the great flood of Noah, wisdom was evident
in the world and after the great flood, the great depths of the oceans were
formed. Some of them with great depths are the Philippine Trench at 6 ½
miles deep and the Mariannas trench at 7 miles deep.
- Prov 8:25 (KJB)
- Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
- (Psa 90:2 KJV) Before the mountains were
brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from
everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
Even before the mountains were planted and settled on the earth, wisdom was
present. Since God is from everlasting to everlasting, so the wisdom of God
is from everlasting to everlasting. Wisdom did not begin with the creation
and will not end when the last day of recorded history comes and goes.
