When you hear the Father’s voice, he will lead you to say things that are not necessary accepted by the world. Though again, Jedihood is not here to give personal views, or ride the fence in fear of offending a party. It’s about sharing the truth even if it isolates you.
It says in Proverbs that a fool has no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself. “Do not be conformed to this world,” says Shaul to the Romans, “but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, acceptable, and perfect will of the Father.”
Wisdom is not based on the gaining of perspectives, or even the self-discovery of your own views. It is about seeking the path of the Father. For wide and broad is the way that leads to destruction, says Yahshua, and many there be which go there.
Let us not forget the works of Palpatine. Palpatine is associated with the word palpable, or palette. In other words, the taste buds. His perceptible and ear-itching words swayed the Senate to invoke Empire rule. He easily manipulated the opinions of the crowd to create a Sith order.
The question we must ask is are we doing this very thing in our hearts. Are we manipulating our opinions to create a personal order within us, instead of listening to the Father’s order? If that is the case with you, you will lose the battles you face before you have begun. The gradual, subtle ways of in’sidious’ness has taken over. Our opinions, in essence, will lead to the manipulation of not only countless others, yet our own selves.
We must remember that opinions are personal judgements, not necessarily backed by knowledge or credibility… and, when shown in the light, are open to much dispute. It is as the foolish man who builds his house on the sand.
Therefore, we must be careful not to seek advice provided from mere perspective… for Master Worldly Wiseman, who resides in the great town of Carnal Policy, will advise you to seek the path of easement at reasonable rates (Pilgrim’s Progress). Don’t be deceived.
Seek the unshaken confidence of the Father, and his righteousness. For only in him will you find wisdom.
