The Wisdom of Adam and Eve compared to The Wisdom of Solomon.
It is up to us through obedience that days are lengthened as with Adam & Eve’s choice.“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,thou shalt not eat of it:for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”.(Genesis 2:17).
Many miss the “bad” decision made of eating from the wrong tree after God told them not to that he then drove out man and placed a flaming sword to keep him away from the TREE OF LIFE! ……………“So he drove out the man;and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims,and a flaming sword which turned every way,to keep the way of the TREE OF LIFE”.(Genesis 3:24).
God told Solomon since he asked for an understanding heart to judge the people and be able to discern between good and bad and did not ask for the life of his enemies that his words were granted!
Solomon was given a dream & after gave his greatest Judgement in Israel “And if thou wilt walk in my ways,to keep my statutes and my commandments,as thy Father David did walk,then I will LENGTHEN THY DAYS.And Solomon awoke;and,behold,it was a dream”……………(1 Kings 3:14,15).
It was after discerning between two woman who had given birth which one child died and the other lived that an argument ensued and Solomon gave his Best Decision in the land……ISRAEL THEN TOOK NOTICE!“And all Israel heard of the Judgement which the King had judged;and they feared the King:for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him,to do judgement”.(1 Kings 3:16-28),(Proverbs 3:1,2).
To choose Good and make the right decision adds LENGTH OF DAYS and in the following passage we see evil shortens our days “But thou ,O God,shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction:bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days;but I will trust in thee”.(Psalm 55:23).
“Blessed are they that do his commandments,that they may have right to the TREE OF LIFE, and may enter in through the gates into the city”.(Revelation 22:14)……(1 John 3:22-24).
