There are more intelligent people living on this planet than at anything else in history, we are overwhelmed by employers offering high salaries to secure the services of intellectuals. The volume of qualified graduates coming from universities around the country is staggering, and the statistics in respect to science and mathematics is astounding. The figures not only gives visibility to our intelligence, but it conveys a deeper meaning about our priorities, and the direction in which the world is going.
The kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains. Revelation 6:15
Clever people don’t like to retain the knowledge of God in their hearts, because it will make them feel obligated to someone that is greater than themselves, and since they did not see it fit to acknowledge God, he gave them up to a debased mind for them to do what they want to do. God has given them over to a reprobate mind because they don’t want to retain him in their thoughts.
The relationship to wealth should not be our first priority
How different is the world that we live in than the time when Jesus walked on earth? There in that world his peace was not broken, and I never saw Jesus visiting in the house of parliament or in the Senate, but he lived a life larger than any politician. He became poor for us, so that we could end up rich in mercy and grace, he was wounded by his enemies, but became the most powerful person that ever lived, and he was victorious over death and the grave. And none of this was the work of academic qualifications. So spiritual matters should have a place in our hearts.
Can spiritual matters help guide us to make greater commercial profit?
But if we were able to translate the myriad of facts and figures into tangible spiritual matters, there would be an alarming outburst of blessing. The world’s oldest book and dearly loved is the bible, and it is filled with promises for the believers. Spirituality is highly disregarded by intellectuals, most individuals in society will identify themselves as non-religious secular person, some make it clear that they are agnostic and you can find atheists in abundance.
How can spiritual matters help in a world of secularism?
We need spiritual insight to make the right choices for our future, the rise of secularism has clouded our paths, and we have become more worldly minded, therefore our vision in morality is impaired, the rule of greed has replace the virtues of spirituality. In this present age; spiritual living in a secular world has become almost redundant, brought about by the imposition of government on the religious practices in schools and public buildings, this restriction has been the ruin of Christian family virtues, and it is a demonic plan of the enemy to plunge good people further down into the mire.
Because all people have sinned, they have fallen short of God’s glory. Romans 3:23
Although there is no one on earth who is righteous, the person who does not walk in the counsel of unbelievers are blessed, they take good advice not just from intellectuals, but from those who has experiences of life at its sharpest point, those in whose hearts sorrow has being working with repentance, constantly seeking the Holy Spirit, to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. It seems there are people on earth who are intending to go to a better place when they die, and heaven is that place with a mountain full of joy.
Righteousness is living right here with all spiritual blessings.
People of faith don’t have to justify anything when they are poor, because their dependence is in the Lord, they don’t have to live up to the sophistication of the times, and faith will invoke a far greater satisfaction than any new trends in fashion. In the end the difference between intellectuals and a believer is open honesty to God.
A poor person who has very little puts their trust more in spiritual matters. Holiness and happiness are not separate, they are combined, and you won’t have one without the other, godliness with contentment is great gain, intelligence have a way of expelling God from the reality of our daily lives.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them. Matthew 5:3
I believe we are still playing catch up to the world of the ancient people, who live here on earth thousands of years ago, and with intelligence that was far more superior to what we have today, but their intelligence came by supernatural means and not from books. They were advance in every perspectives, intelligence which could transform and travel through space. The process of development may have reach an unprecedented level, when something catastrophically took place.
The result was a highly visible civilization was wiped out completely, but before they disappear along with the crown jewel of Atlantis, we were given an insight of the powers they held. The watery grave has long covered Atlantis, but its shadows are rising again, and we are seeing signs of a return to the days of Noah, when violence was rampant in every quarters, but also the invasion of super beings from out of space made their habitation among the mortals.
For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. Matthew 24:37
They had left their habitation, and the imprint for us to see, even now as we travel around the world we are drawn to great monuments, and buildings that defies imagination. Almost all those historical artefacts defies logic, unexplained mysteries that can only be put down to some sort of super human existence which possess abilities for greater than what we can imagine. It is foretold that there will be great changes in the atmosphere. There will be some surprising cataclysmic events hastening to come upon the people of earth.
As the deluge to the old world destroyed the presence of evil, so God will eventually bring an end to horror and despair we are facing, the culmination of intelligence and denial will come together in Armageddon’s respective business. Christ showed the state of the old world to his disciples, and gave them clues, which points to a being coming out of those waters, and it will be something diabolical again.
