Reverend Josephs’ Seven Pillars of Wisdom
Gaining inspiration from: “Wisdom hath builded her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars,” Proverbs 9:1, the Right Reverend Chris Josephs U. Eromosele wove an inspiring message of hope for mankind.
According to him, as God’s children, we have been enabled with a great and stable destiny.
We have access to wisdom’s pillars for a fulfilling and fruitful life. In this classical monograph on theology, Eromosele reveals how the individual cannot fail.
This book is your guarantor of success in whatever vocation you choose to engage. Why is wisdom so important to fruitful living? Wisdom is useful in the enhancement of a fulfilling destiny.
Among others, wisdom is a defence against failure, Ecc. 7:12. Wisdom is better than strength: Ecc.9: 16.
Wisdom is better than weapons of war, Ecc.9: 18. Wisdom is justified by her children, Matt 11:19. Wisdom is profitable in the service of business, Ecc.10: 10.
Wisdom is better than rubies, Prov. 8:11. Wisdom is the principal thing, Prov. 4:7. This revelation will culminate in a change of season for you, as it did for the author.
Eromosele defines wisdom as knowing what to do in a situation. Once you know what to do, success comes to you easily. Failure is the result of not doing well.
Success represents a culmination of decisions rightly taken. Taking rightful decisions was the outstanding feature of Jesus of Nazareth’s greatest wisdom.
He is referred to as the wisdom of God. He was wisdom personified. When you access wisdom, you won’t walk in darkness on any subject. You will intuitively know what to do in any situation. You will become the encyclopedia of your time, John 1:2.
The Seven Pillars of Wisdom has 17 chapters, 164 pages and a page of the author’s memorabilia. It was published this year by The Secret of Fulfilment Series; printed by the Grace Insight Production, Wuse 11, Abuja, Nigeria. The Bible, as God’s Word, is wisdom. So, you can only have access to wisdom through reading God’s Word.
It is impossible for you to have access to wisdom and be tossed around by life’s currents. In another way, wisdom is the proper application of knowledge to life.
You are expected to earn God’s pleasure as a wise man. Jehovah is always happy with His wise children.
The following suitably describes His feelings towards you: You are a city set on a hill. You are the light of the world. You are the salt of the earth. You are a chosen generation. You are the apple of God’s eyes. You are the master of signs and wonders. You are kings and priests unto God.
The wisdom of God is supreme, and when you build a house with it, it becomes your home and access to God’s own elect. “I will give you a mouth and a wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay and resist,” Luke 21:15.
In concluding chapter two of part one on the power of vision, the author enjoins his readers to draw up a plan with utmost clarity in order to succeed in life.
Architects will tell you that before any building is erected, its plan must be settled; an exact replica of the proposed structure is built, such that a visitor can easily predict the outcome of the building.
Which is why success isn’t a try-your-luck thing. Success isn’t an accident, but a result of planning.
Hence, a vision of your greatness must first be hewn. “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do, and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do,” Gen. 11:6.
Joseph is Eromosele’s example of the visionary, whose vision was fulfilled in prison after interpreting Pharaoh’s dream. Wherefore, Joseph was made prime minister of Egypt, where his family members came to worship him, as well as get food and protection.
God loves you when you are not just a hearer, but a doer walking in the integrity of God’s word. The qualities you need for fulfilment are: “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge: and to knowledge temperance: and to temperance patience: and to patience godliness and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things abound, they make you, that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged, of his old sins.”
“Wherefore, rather brethren, give diligence to make your calling, for if ye do these things ye shall never fail,” Gen 11, 1:5, 10. And finally, to achieve your goals, you need such pillars as diligence, faith, knowledge and love.
The author, the Right Reverend Chris Eromosele is the president of The Pinnacle of Grace Incorporated and author of several books. He has been presiding over the anointed ministry for over 20 years, a minister of the gospel and inspirational speaker. His church is in Wuse 11, Abuja, Nigeria.
From the foregoing you will realise that The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a must read for your success and fulfilment.
