I again saw under the sun that
the race is not to the swift
and the battle is not to the warriors,
and neither is bread to the wise
nor wealth to the discerning
nor favor to men of ability;
for time and chance overtake them all.
Moreover, man does not know his time:
like fish caught in a treacherous net
and birds trapped in a snare,
so the sons of men are ensnared
at an evil time when it suddenly falls on them.
Also this I came to see as wisdom under the sun,
and it impressed me.
There was a small city with few men in it
and a great king came to it,
surrounded it and constructed large siege works against it.
But there was found in it a poor wise man
and he delivered the city by his wisdom.
Yet no one remembered that poor man.
So I said, “Wisdom is better than strength.”
But the wisdom of the poor man is despised
and his words are not heeded.
The words of the wise heard in quietness
are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools.
Wisdom is better than weapons of war,
but one sinner destroys much good. Ecclesiastes 10:9-18
The finished state of war.
It will come only by the Power of Yahweh/Jehovah and His Son Jesus Christ/Yeshua. Wisdom in action.
War and force never win. True power is found in wisdom.
Seek it. Build it. Use it. Share it with others.
Test yourself. Be wise in the light of Christ.
