Chris's Isaiah Chapter 48 comment about verse 22 on 10/12/2020, 12:23am...

There are probably other related portions in Scripture, but the first one, the more familiar one, is found in 2 Chronicles 1:1-12 (the whole account) & particularly verses 9-12. I love that portion which ever reminds me that desiring wealth, a long life or even retribution on those who hate you are not the sort of things that a true servant of God should seek. But to have wisdom (i.e. to act wisely on the things that God has put into your mind, your heart, your life) is preeminent. So Solomon not only delighted God's Heart in his request for wisdom to judge God's people righteously, but also God also gave him those things that he didn't ask for, the things Solomon considered least important.

So the New Testament counterpart of this Truth is in Matthew 6:33: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." And James 1:5: "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him."

God has many names. My favorite is the "I AM" . The particular person is The Father , and the Son. These two being one, together in the creation of the universe, while at the same time creating the Holy spirit , which returns to man through faith in the redemption of the Father and the Son . Being revealed through the Word. The word was made flesh and dwelt among us. John;3;16 His only begotten Son . Begotten from all eternity. We can have this same unity of love, given through Christs sacrifice "ATONEMENT".
