The Holy Spirit as wisdom personified as a mother training her children

(141) Da 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom (chokmah) and understanding , that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm .

.. And in all matters of wisdom (chokmah) ..

(142) Mt 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking , and they say , Behold a man gluttonous , and a winebibber , a friend of publicans and sinners . But wisdom (chokmah) is justified of her children .

.. But wisdom (chokmah) is justified

Jesus did no wrong, though he went seeking those lost..

Notice the way Jesus speaks to the Jews directly, saying that wisdom straightens her children.

Where does Scripture speak of the Holy Spirit as a mother straightening her children?

Pr 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise (chakam) "ordinary wise understanding", and their dark sayings.

The whole eight chapters is hidden, so men with ordinary wise understanding are not able to read the Scriptures hidden in poetry similes. Scripture does this for a reason. Only the blind will see, the deaf will hear, the unlearned become learned.

Isa 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:

12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Isa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

So if you pray for the Holy Spirit to open your blind eyes so you can see, to read Scripture correctly as the two chapters of Isaiah 28 and 29 says to read Scripture than we can go on:

Pr 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

Notice the instructions of thy father to us as babes of God, or sons of God, is a parallel simile to the torah teachings of thy mother. Notice the poetry pictures here, "son", "father" and "mother". In Hebrew thinking these poetry pictures are verbs of action, so they are "the one who continues the family of love"; "the Provider of love" and "the Responder to love". And this is a simile picture of Elohiym, wheere in Ephesians 3: 10 to 16. Elohiym is referenced as a simile picture of "family" with a "Son", "Father" and "Mother" in this verse. But this concept is written here by Solomon, and long before the great flood orally by Job, who names the old names of each heavenly parent, as Eloah for Father and Shadday for Mother.

Pr 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

Pr 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity?

Instead many of us do not seek Jesus in His words, and so

we "eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices". (Pr 1:31)

Pr 2:2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom,...

Isa 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Ro 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness,..

Wisdom comes broadly via the ear, via the conscience, as a voice from GOD, via the Holy Spirit, who is an agency of divine communication. Do we discern the still small voice talking to us in our conscience?

Pr 3:18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:...

The Holy Spirit is a simile of a tree, as followers of Jesus are similes of trees.Trees are interesting things to study.

Pr 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth;...

Ps 33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (KJV)

So Jesus created all things by saying the words from his mouth, using His own wisdom. Is that it? Many assume so. But if you read the Hebrew, the word "breath" is "ruwach" which is the "Holy Spirit wind" , a "co-eternal Being who administrates the wind of God". Thus Jesus spoke the words, and the Holy Spirit do as He requested using the Father's flow of power.

Pr 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee:...

Pr 6:20 My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

In summary, wesee again the reminder of the Provider of directions, the Responder to those teachings who helps us as a Comforter does, as does a Mother training a son the way he should go.

Pr 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light;...

The Provider is a simile of the lamp, or source of light, as the ten commandments are a source of life. The Responder responds to the instructions with torah teachings as light, as straight rays of where to walk and how to walk. And this is a characteristic of a Divine Responder, such as the Holy Spirit, and also of a Divine Son, such as Jesus, who can function as a Responder and a Provider, a son shows collective love, as some Christian scholars tell us.

Pr 8:34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

The Holy Spirit lives in mankind, dealing with our missing, sowe can get connected back to Jesus and thus be saved by GOD. Listen to the still small voice of GOD via the conscience, via the Holy Spirit. Indeed learn the two actions of love, the maleness-love that Provides and the femaleness-love that Responds.

(145) Mr 6:2 And when the sabbath day was come , he began to teach in the synagogue : and many hearing him were astonished , saying , From whence hath this man these things ? and what wisdom (chokmah) is this which is given unto him , that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands ?

(147) Lu 2:40 And the child grew , and waxed strong in spirit , filled with wisdom (chokmah) : and the grace of God was upon him .

And the child grew , and waxed strong in spirit , filled with wisdom (chokmah)..

Jesus grew in the Holy Spirit, and wisdom flowed into Jesus...this heavenly flow would come from the Father..
