"The thoughts of the wise are in the house of mourning, but the thoughts of fools are in the house of pleasure." Ecclesiastes 7:4
We are going to enter in Salomon's apartment to explain this prophecy. Find out the meaning of the wises and the fools in prophetic words. But before any explanation we invite you to read 1 Corinthians 2:13 " this is what we speak, not in words taught us by humane wisdom but in words taught by the spirit, explaining spiritual realities with spirit-taught words." Let see what the prophet Isaiah means by revelation Isaiah 29:11-12. " for you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in the scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, "Read this, please" they will answer, it is sealed. Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, "Read this, please," they will answer, I don't know how to read." We understand that the bible is a will. Hebrews 9:16-17 " In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it, because a will is in force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living. The one who died for us is Jesus Christ whom was found worthy to open the scroll and to break the seal. Revelation 5:9 " you are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation." Is with the advent of the Holy Spirit that we got the revelation. Acts1:8 " but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Here is the explanation of the wise and the fools in prophetic word. The church which is the fusion of nations people and some of Israel people who believers in Jesus Christ became wise by accepting the invitation from God. Proverbs 9:1-6 " wisdom has built her house; she us set up, its seven pillars. She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table. She has sent out her servants, and she calls from the highest point of the city," Let all who are simple come to my house. To those who have no sense she says, " Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed. Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of insight." In the shadow, wisdom's house is the tabernacle that God asked to Moses to build in the desert. But the reality is Jesus Christ; because he is the real temple according to his testimony. John 2:19 " Jesus answer them, destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days." And seven pillars represents chandelier which is Jesus too, because He is the light which enlighten the church. John 8:12 " later, Jesus talked to the people again. He said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never live in darkness. They will have the light that gives life." Seven pillars also represents the light of the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-17 " God said, “ I command lights to appear in the sky and to separate day from night and to show the time for seasons, special days, and years. I command them to shine on the earth.” And that’s what happened. God made two powerful lights, the brighter one to rule the day and the other[e] to rule the night. He also made the stars. Then God put these lights in the sky to shine on the earth, to rule day and night, and to separate light from darkness. God looked at what he had done, and it was good." There is so much to explain for this passage of Genesis but unfortunately we don't have a time. We will speak more once God give us the time.
Meat represents Moses law or Jesus body, that's why Jesus used to say, whoever eat my body will have life. John 6:51,53 " I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." We have to understand that Jesus flesh is a book sealed but the flesh he recommend us to eat represents a open book because he died. In another word we call it revelation. So that the preacher have to give people the revelation from the scriptures. And as well as possible use the interpretation. Because interpretation helps us to understand two times like David saying in the book the Psalms 62:12 " one thing God has spoken, two thing I have heard: " Power belongs to you, God...."
Mixed her wine represents Jesus blood. John 6:56 " those who eat my body and drink my blood live in me, and I live in them." The clarified wine represents the revelation which produces eternal life to people. Leviticus17:11 " For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life." The clarified wine is also Moses law and Grace. In other words, it's the explanation of the allegories, the riddle and the parables. We recall that the church is an eagle, therefore fresh meat is our favorite food.Matthew24:28"Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather. Deuteronomy 12:24 " you must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water." Despite being restricted from God to not eat or drink the blood. Jesus recommends the church to eat his body and to drink his blood.John6:54-46" Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. For the people to reach the measure of perfect of Christ, revelation is required.
We understood that the tabernacle, the meat, the wine as well as the chandelier represents Jesus Christ. We recall that the disciple who have left Jesus because of his doctrine represents Israel.John6:66"From that time on, many of His disciples turned back and no longer accompanied Him. 67So Jesus asked the Twelve, “Do you want to leave too?”
By lack of faith Israel has became fools. Matthew 22:5,8 " but when the servants told the people to come, they refuse to listen. They all went to do other things. One went to work in his field, and another went to his business." after that the king said to his servants, the wedding feast is ready. I invited those people, but they were not good enough to come to my feast.
Israel prefers to gather in front of the Sinai [Moses law], while God has already moved to Zion mountain. Psalms 76:2-3 " His tent is in Salem. His home is in Zion. There he destroyed flaming arrows, shields, swords, and weapons of war." According to Galatians3:23-24" Before the coming of this faith,[j] we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. 24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith.
What does house of pleasure means? it means being in Moses law. Galatians 5:19-21 " the acts of flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkeness, orgie, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like that will not inherit the kingdom of God.". Romas8:9"You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
What exactly house of mourning in prophecy language mean? Genesis 50:3 " taking a full forty day, for that was the time required for embalming. And the Egyptians mourned for him seventy days." You will noticed that the bible states that the Egyptians mourned Jacob seventy days. That is a prophetic language that explains the action of worshiping the Lamb slain. Revelation 5:13" then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever." Seventy days equal seven days or a week or sanctification. We say a week compared to Jacob[Jesus] who shared the week with the daughters of Laban.
Here is another way of worshiping our God. Romans 12:1 " therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true and proper worship."
Praise the Lord...
