More Precious Than Rubies

more precious than rubies

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.

Proverbs 3:13-15

In the New Age, knowledge abounds. There is no end to the topics you can study. Admittedly, much of it is just shallow fluff but in many of the more occult topics, you can dive deep. All in all, the New Age is the 1001 rabbit holes with the 10,000 hamster wheels.

But, as I have had to learn for myself, a proliferation of knowledge does not equal wisdom. As evidence, I present you with all the posts I shared on this blog before I was delivered from the spirit of python. There is not one iota of wisdom in any of them. They are like straw to me now. The only reason I am keeping this blog instead of just starting a new one is to give people trapped in the New Age a chance to find Jesus. They might be searching for one of the occult or New Age topics and be guided here. They may then go on to check out my latest posts. This is what I pray will happen.

By The Fruit You Shall Know Them

If you start following any of the New Age teachings, you usually end up intrigued and thirsty for more. They have the same allure that the serpent in the Garden of Eden had. They pull you in with the promise of secret knowledge that will make you like God. However, instead of gaining a sense of being filled with wisdom, you come away more and more confused (and with a lot less cash).

Then you start thinking that you are missing some vital key to be able to understand the teachings and you start looking for the next shiny thing. FOMO is what moves people deeper and deeper into the occult and the New Age. But is there also something more sinister at work? Exorcisms and requests for deliverance are skyrocketing as people move away from the rock-solid wisdom of the Word of God and down those rabbit holes.

As for myself, I know that when I read my Bible, I always come away feeling clear and comforted. There really is no comparison. Knowledge does not equal wisdom. God is the source of all wisdom. The enemy is the source of much knowledge. God’s wisdom is indeed more precious than rubies.
