As I said yesterday, I did a quick bible reading after that crazy nightmare. I literally just opened my bible and began reading. I read Revelations 13.The 18th verse stuck out to me. My NKJV states, “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
That caught my attention not for the reason most would think. It caught me because of the mention of wisdom of understanding. I've been researching wisdom, understanding, and knowledge in my quest to be more of the Love that I think I need. So this intermingling of wisdom and understanding got me immediately. I decided to flip back to Proverbs (a book full of wise epitaphs) and was led to read Proverbs 18-19. I stopped at 19:8 although 18:15 got a few back glances. 19:8 states “He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good.” 18:15 states “The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge. And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” You see what happened there? What was meant for a disaster actual led me back to my research, which I had so been slacking on for the past few weeks. I love when that happens. So back on the horse riding at a more appropriate pace, I go.
Don’t miss out on your blessings & lessons focusing on the negative foolishness life throws your way. No matter how strong that hold feels, no matter how scary that experience is, you can pull right on through. When you do, keep on trucking cause there’s much more to do.
Now to this question: How to calculate the number of a man? I have no answer currently, but I have no doubt that I’m gonna run up on that answer as I delve back into my wisdom,understanding, & knowledge studies.
I pray for Understanding Wisdom to guide me in reaching the need so that we all might be secured in His Love.
