“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

“Behold, a greater than Solomon is here.” Matt. 12:42.

Not only did He teach the truth, but He was the truth. It was this that gave His teaching power. Education, p. 78.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (Jn. 1:1). Since the whole Old Testament was a revelation of the Son of God, why shouldn’t we substitute Christ into every verse of the holy Writ? It’s His word, and every letter, every expression describes their divine Author. We will be pleasantly surprised at the new views we receive of Jesus, the holy, loving, divine Son of God.

Join me in Proverbs as we begin this gigantic enterprise.

Pro 1:1 The proverbs concerning Jesus the son of David, King of Israel;
Pro 1:2 How He knew wisdom and instruction; perceived the words of understanding;
Pro 1:3 Received the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
Pro 1:4 Gave subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
Pro 1:5 Jesus was wise and listened, and increased learning; He became a man of understanding that attained unto wise counsels:
Pro 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of His Father, and His deep sayings.
Pro 1:7 His fear of His Father was the beginning of His knowledge: but the religious leaders despised wisdom and instruction.
Pro 1:8 The Son heard the instruction of His Father, and forsook not the law of the Holy Spirit:
Pro 1:9 And they were ornaments of grace unto His head, and chains about His neck.
Pro 1:10 Satan and his workers of iniquity enticed God’s Son, but He consented not.
Pro 1:11 They said, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
Pro 1:12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
Pro 1:13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
Pro 1:14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse.
Pro 1:15 But the Son of God walked not in the way with them; He refrained His foot from their path:
Pro 1:16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
Pro 1:17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
Pro 1:18 They layed wait for their own destruction; they lurked privily and lost their own eternal life.
Pro 1:19 So was the ways of every one that was greedy of gain; which took away the eternal life of the owners thereof.
Pro 1:20 Christ’s wisdom cried without; He uttered His voice in the streets:
Pro 1:21 He cried in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city He uttered His words, saying,
Pro 1:22 How long, ye sin-loving rabbis, will ye love to grind the faces of the poor in spirit? How long will the scribes delight to prevent the people from hearing beautiful truth, and Pharisees to hate love?
Pro 1:23 Turn you at My reproof: behold, I will pour out My Spirit unto you, I will make known My words unto you.
Pro 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My hand, and no priest regarded;
Pro 1:25 But ye have set at nought all My counsel, and would none of My reproof:
Pro 1:26 I also will scorn you at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Pro 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Pro 1:28 Then shall they call upon Me, but I will not answer; they shall seek Me early, but they shall not find Me:
Pro 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
Pro 1:30 They would none of My counsel: they despised all My reproof.
Pro 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Pro 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
Pro 1:33 But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
