Even the wisest and most learned men in the culture today cannot begin to align with My wisdom. I do not look upon their titles, degrees or accomplishments with any notice. No, I look upon the hearts of mankind to see if they know Me. I brush up against every person many times in their lives upon the earth giving many opportunities through My grace for mankind to come into relationship with Me. My heart is continually grieved when My Spirit is refused and rebuffed, for I wish that all men would know Me. Unfortunately, many men are held captive by their own knowledge and intellect and oft times they are driven to gain titles, degrees and position. But I tell you a truth, none of these things are desirous in My Kingdom, for I say that the last shall be first and the first shall be last.
“Thus saith the Lord: Let not the wise and skillful person glory and boast in is wisdom and skill; let not the mighty and powerful person glory and boast in his strength and power; let not the person who is rich (in physical gratification and earthly wealth) glory and boast in his (temporal satisfactions and earthly) riches; but let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me (personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character), that I am the Lord who practices loving-kindness, judgment and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24
