"And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure." (Isaiah 33: 6)
Wisdom is a person, Jesus Christ.
"30But of him are
ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and
sanctification, and redemption:" (1 Corinthians 1: 30)
God made Light, or Wisdom, before he made anything else:
"And God said, Let
there be light: and there was light." (Genesis 1:3)
"The LORD possessed
me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
"I was set up from
everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was." (Proverbs 8: 22-23)
Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13: ) is from everlasting to everlasting, and He is our wisdom.
Yet even the older academics who challenged church dogma, they recognized that an order, a structure, a certainty existed outside of our thinking and feeling.
There can be no knowledge without Light, without the true Source, the Logos (John 1: 1) which was and is and is to come.
To discredit the beginning of all things is to discredit any exploration of things that are, or of things to come.
The older academics declared: "Credo ut intelligam" -- I believe that I may understand.
Belief is not "blind faith" but accepting what already exists, because to prove something which is obvious will then render one oblivious.
The wisdom of God is greater than the knowledge of men. In fact, men can know nothing what His wisdom to begin with, which has been since the beginning.
