My life’s calling as according to Jeremiah 16, John 15 & in parallel to Peter’s & Nehemiah’s lives.
John 15- Three times Yahshua said to us, “If you love me keep my commands.”
He said He only speaks what He hears His Father speak so then His commands are the same as the Father’s.
Then Yahshua said to Peter three times, “Do you love me? Then feed my sheep. The enemy will sift you as wheat.”
In Jeremiah 16:14-16 YHWH said He would call fishers, “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says YHWH, “that it shall no more be said, ‘YHWH lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘YHWH lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says YHWH, “and they shall fish them”. YHWH gave me dreams in 1999 showing me about fish before I understood or knew this Scripture.
Nehemiah was called to rebuild the wall. The wall was Salvation- YHWH’s Son Yahshua.
From as early as I can remember I loved the Father so much! In fact, we used to sing a song with words that said we love Him because He first loved us, but I in good conscience would not sing it because I felt I loved Him first. As I matured, I realized my childish thinking; according to the Brit HaDasha (The Renewed Covenant) we cannot come to Him unless Ruach HaQodesh draws us.
I started having dreams very young wherein He was calling me and drawing me to Him to serve Him and be filled with His Ruach HaQodesh. At seven years old my Grandma Pick anointed my hands with oil and asked our Heavenly Father to anoint my hands to serve as David did. She said to me, “Leslie Ann, if you ask for anything, ask for wisdom.” At the time I didn’t know what wisdom was. I asked for it though. A short while later my second grade teacher said to my mother that I was a wise girl. So, I figured I received it whatever it was. =)
In the fourth dream I had as a child of seven yrs old, I was climbing a tall grassy green mountain-like hill. I didn’t make it to the top. I rolled down into my dark nighttime appearing bedroom onto my bed looking up into the nighttime sky. Again I was climbing up the mountain and this time there were rows of white going up it like on a race track. 'People' dressed in white were on either side of me. I couldn’t reach the top and I rolled down as before onto my bed looking up into the midnight sky. Yet again for a third time, I was climbing up the mountain and the people dressed in white this time tried helping me to the top. Though almost to the top I still could not reach it even with help and rolled down onto my bed. But this time when I looked up the sky was a daytime bright sky blue. I saw a man-like figure in the blue clouded sky outlined in gold standing next to a rounded top door that was outlined in gold. Their hand was reached out to me. I was trying to figure out if they were an angel or Yahsua so I believed the figure as YahShua. I wanted to say hello, but I was so excited that I looked around me to share with my parents. I didn’t know where they were and I was all of a sudden in the trailer park (that we had visited earlier that day after I had been stung repeatedly by yellow jackets) and tried to figure out which trailer we had visited earlier to see if my parents were there. I walked up to one trailer house and asked if my parents were there. They weren’t. Then in the next scene, my sister and I were standing in our pajamas on an early Saturday (it was cartoon day to us- now I know it was Shabbat, the weekly Sabbath day) morning out in the garage gazing up into the bright blue sky. My mom came to the garage door that went into the orange living room in her pajamas and asked what were we doing out there at the entrance to the garage and took us inside the house. I woke up the next morning and shared with my mom about the dream and my mom recorded my telling about it so that she could share with a Christian woman’s aerobic group at the Y. I have that blue tape to this day and when I hear how I described things- I realize that a child doesn’t know how to accurately describe what they see because of unlearned knowledge of language. But at the least I was able to relay the gist of the dream. Prior to this dream I had dreamed three 'bad' dreams that I thought were from the devil. I have since learned that they were from YHWH also, but they were Him revealing to me the enemy's plans; He doesn't do anything unless He lets His people know first. He wants us to know how to prepare and stand against such things. I have since seen all the dreams take place which let me know that He was speaking to me through the dreams. After having the bad dreams I had asked Him for a good dream. Then YHWH had given me a good dream!
The day before I had that dream there may have been hundreds of yellow jacket stings covering my 7 yr old body. My best friend Dawn Michelle and I were playing next to the woods in my two story red play house. To get to the second floor we used a ladder and then had to cross infront of a nine hole white bird cage to get to the other side. Once to the other side a swarm of bees covered us. I was infront shielding Dawn. We had to go infront of the infested birdhouse with the bees all over to go down the ladder and scream for help. Our neighbors brought lots of ice and I believe my mom counted around 88 stings on one leg alone. Later that day the macaroni and cheese didn’t not stay in my stomach. Nausea and throwing up were the only bad effects from the terrible stings. Later that day we visited an old neighbor who moved into a trailer park. That night I had a dream about YahShua. He was calling me to follow Him-to stay here and share the Besorah (Good News) with my family and friends here on earth instead of going up to be with Him -the Messiah. I heard Perry Stone say that both he and his father had similar dreams of YahShua’s hand extended to them. It is a sign of being called into The Father’s Work. He was showing me that not even His messengers could help me reach the top. Only He could empower me. Also, it was not a competition. Three times I rolled into my bedroom a place of comfort and rest. The first two looking into a midnight sky, but the third time it was daytime. My sister and I in the second scene we were in the double car garage a place of ministry symbolically- vehicles are symbolic of ministry. We were looking into the heavens on the early Saturday instead of watching cartoons as we usually did. We were observing the Shabbat! My mom didn’t understand at the time that we were about our Father’s business just as YahShua was about His Father’s business when he was young- he too felt the call. This dream as well as the ones previous were showing future events of our lives.
When I was around 14 years old I saw myself playing a large black grand piano somewhere south. My Aunt Jeannie who is my mother’s twin sister, also had a dream of me playing the piano and my sister singing/signing in whole body sign language in a southerly dry cracked place.
I would play somewhere south someday and here I am in Florida these past 15 years teaching and preparing students to worship and praise in their congregations. This past Spring 2013 this vision happened. While playing a beautiful black grand piano at a women's encounter the electicity went out and the praise team gathered around the piano. Here I was in a lower place that became dark and people were gathered around the grand piano I was playing. My sister became ordained as a minister to the deaf. She sings and does whole body sign language that when witnessed causes one to bow in humble adoration of our Maker.
Just as in 2nd Chronicles 20 King Jehoshapht sent the worshippers out first and while their eyes were on YHWH the enemy was confounded and the two enemy armies killed off each other, so too, today YHWH is calling us worshippers to the forefront to realize His ways and focus on Him that the enemy may be confounded. This is why the revelation of walking on the ancient paths is being first revealed to the worshippers who are sensitive in heart to worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth to fight the great battle ahead! To expose the lies of the enemy handed down through Christendom! And orthodoxy! The worshippers are at the forefront of the battle today just as they were then because we don’t know what to do but HE DOES AND OUR EYES ARE ON HIM!On a night many years later in my late twenties in the late 1990's , while listening to a cassette tape I needed to turn it over to the other side and automatically the radio came on. When the radio came on that evening a man by the name of Avi Ben Mordechai said we need to do Teshuva- repent. I listened for a little bit. I called them once when they offered a book that was titled, “How Will You Know If You Don’t Ask”. I
They said, “You will bring your family back full circle.” I wasn’t sure what that meant. I later learned that YHWH operated not linearly like we do in Western culture. But, rather, He operates in circles. The week is in a circle, so is the day and the year and the orbit of the earth, etc…My family would accept the truth. Not too long after that I was sitting in my rocking chair in the living room with the Bible on my lap and I was crying. I had just read to turn around and that my guide posts were broken and I needed to set them up. Just then the VCR repair man called and said that he doesn’t know how it could have happened, but the guideposts were broken. I thought, “Okay Father, Father what are you showing me? What are the guide posts? I never even hear that word and I just read it in Your word and now heard it through the VCR repair man.” I came to understand that the guideposts are His Statutes and Precepts set forth in His Law.
In the spring of 1999 I dreamed that I was standing next to the bank of a relatively small river. There was a bend in it next to some woods. I saw a school of fish swimming downstream. An older man with white hair was standing on a wooden dock. He said he needed to show me something. He was fishing. He said, “Look closely at the school of fish. Do you see them? Look very closely. There are pale white fish swimming among them. We must fish them out so very carefully so as not to kill the good fish.” Then he proceeded to show me how to gently fish them out. Across the river on the other side under a huge tree stood an older woman with white hair and she was his wife. After I had this dream my pastor gave a sermon on fish and it seemed to relate to the dream and after his sermon I shared with him the dream and at the altar he said with my hands lifted up, “You will be a mighty woman of God.”
According to Jeremiah 16 the Father was calling me to be a fisher of man and to fish out the false doctrines so that the true fish wouldn’t die or be contaminated, but to do so very carefully in love, not in haste. The woman, the Father’s wife standing under the tree- Her name is Wisdom, Chochmah. Psalm 1, “But his delight is in the law of YHWH; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Herein let us see Wisdom.
Hazon(Revelation) 22:2 – “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, [was there] the tree of life, which bare twelve [manner of] fruits, [and] yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree [were] for the healing of the nations.”)
In July, the summer of 1999 I dreamed that I and others were on a wooden raft going North on a river that was very wide but shallow. We were lying down on the raft looking down into the water. There were large, thin, pale, white fish swimming upstream. These were the same fish from the previous dream, but were now bigger. On the river bed were mounds of beautiful, healthy-looking bass-like fish; they were lying in mounds on top of one another and though they looked healthy they were dead. I recognized the fish on top as my pastor-he had the same eyes. Then I looked up and ahead to the left were huge squares of trash containers that were painted white. In front of the containers was a barge with workers on it. In the dream I knew we were on the Mississippi River though I thought the Mississippi River was actually very deep not shallow. When I woke up in the morning I looked up the word Mississippi River and up came Mississippian which means a wide expanse of shallow water over land!
The false doctrines had grown. Many good pastors are full of His Word, but are as dead because they are acceepting falsehoods handed down to them instead of studying for themselves and teaching it rightly and they are slowing the flow of Ruach HaQodesh. There are many white painted trash bins (‘whited sepluchers’) –false doctrine in the church. But there are also workers doing cleanup. Messiah speaks directly about this problem.
The following September on the morning of the 12th at 5:30am I dreamed that I was studying in a shack on a local University campus. A woman in there by the name of Pam said to look outside. I looked outside and saw two tornadoes coming from the SouthWest. So, I went outside and walked west toward shelter. On the way I saw people north of me preparing and scurrying about. Debris were beginning to fly around in the air. In front of me was a swimming pool and the people were sunbathing next to it, seemingly unaware of the impending disaster. I reached the first red brick building that was facing inside toward the East. I walked through the outside hallway of it and two young boys asked where I was going. I turned and showed them the tornadoes and asked if they wanted to find shelter with me. They did and I took them to where the building joined perpendicularly with another building. A blue tiled shower room joined them and that is where I took the boys for shelter during the storm. There was a financial building attached on the West side of the shower. The first building was attached on the South side and the other building attached on the North Side. The first storm hit and we felt it shake the building. Then there was a pause. Then the next storm hit hard. I cried the Name of Jesus twice and knelt down with a boy under each arm. The financial building was destroyed. The shower room building was lifted up and off the ground and set on the second floor balcony of the first building we walked through. When it was set down I opened my eyes and saw the people who had been sunbathing just staring wide-eyed and jaws dropped. I woke up from that dream to a very deep, dark, frightening presence that caused me to be afraid to move an inch. I said, “Father, is this of the devil or of You?” Then I went back to sleep. I woke up a couple of hours later and went to Sunday morning church. I sat in the upper left balcony section. We had just worshipped and the Pastor stood up to the podium to preach and was about to start when a man in the choir loft stood up and began to speak out loud. I did not know him nor who he was as I was still relatively new to the church. He said, “Do not fear. It was my presence that you felt. I CALLED YOU BY NAME. Do not fear. I showed you the storm coming. My presence will be your defense.” I thought, “I need to go home, look in the Bible and see if His presence can be frightening and also if He refers to a tornado as a storm.” So, I went home and found that indeed, Yahshua’s disciples were sore afraid at the transfiguration and also the Israelites The wouldn’t go near the mountain when YHWH spoke out of fear. Also, on several occasions such as in Job and elsewhere we read that YHWH comes on the whirlwind and refers to it as a storm. Wow! He answered me directly through a man I did not know even though the pastor seemed agitated that the man spoke out at that time. A couple of years later nearly to the day on the 11th of September the Financial Buildings, the World Trade Centers in New York, collapsed by Muslim extremist terrorists. A few years later a couple of people said to me that I could only pray in the Hebrew name of the Messiah, not the Greek version. I prayed about it and was reminded of this dream. I asked the Father if that was true. He reminded me of what I called out while in the shower room and it was Jesus, Jesus. He said to me, “I heard you didn’t I?” I said, “Yes.” So, He looks at our heart above all, He judges the motives, the intentions of the heart more than the lingual pronunciation or annunciations. For 1st Corinthians 13 says we can do all things right and give everything away, and though that looks good, if our heart is not right then it means nothing. We are not to have a spirit of pride which is what happens when people begin thinking they are the only ones doing something right. He knew I was calling upon His Beloved Son! Years later while sitting in a service at the Baptist Church I was leafing through writings I had stored in my Bible and when going over what I had written from this dream and right as I was reading the word storm the pastor said storm! Interesting. This has happened on other occasions too. In Genesis 15:12 YHWH appeared to Abram in a similar fashion causing him to fall asleep and then a deep horrible darkness came upon him and then the Father showed him what would happen and then made a covenant with him. Wow! Our Heavenly Father appeared to me as He appeared to father Abram so many years earlier! I am humbled in awe of His presence!
I would experience storms in my life. The knowledge I had been learning was nowhere near the knowledge I needed to know and desired to know. Others were preparing because they were sensing too the urgency to accept the Father’s Word from the Beginning as His Beloved Son YahShua did. People would ‘sunbathe’ in the Holy Spirit thinking they were experiencing the Truth, but they were oblivious to the Truth. The first building represented the church. The Perpendicular Building represented the Synagogue. The shower room represented Ruach HaQodesh in many ways- blue, water, strength, shower. The two young boys represented those who would accept the Truth. The shower room was the joining place of the church and the synagogue into one new man. Finances would fail. The balcony represented authority that would be given me and those who followed the Truth. Two years later minus one day the twin towers- the world financial trade center – buildings collapsed and people were buried; many were saved with miraculous testimony! Through financial upheaval He would bring elevation of His own. When I woke up from this dream I felt such a deep dark presence and asked the Father if it was Him or the devil. When I woke up a couple of hours later an utterance was given at church from a man saying,”Do not be afraid. My presence is your defence. I showed you the storms coming. Do not be afraid. I woke you up and called you by name. It is my presence you felt.” In Genesis 15:12 Abraham too fell into a sleep and a horror of great darkness fell upon him and YHWH showed him what would happen and made a covenant with him. I had this dream on Tishri the 2nd that year which is on the second day of Rosh Hashana which is head of the year and hashana means please save us. September 12, 1999.
My mother-in-law was taking a trip to Rome, Italy and to Israel. While she was there we had no communication. During that time in my life I saw through my own personal studies of the Scriptures that the Seventh Day Sabbath and the Feast Days were our Heavenly Father’s and not Jewish in origin. That they were from the beginning and that we in the church were keeping man made holidays that weren’t even true. I was a leader in the church and asked the Father if what I was seeing was true because it contradicted what the church was teaching. While my mother-in-law was on her trip on a Thursday night I had a dream. A white haired man sitting in front of a stone house building said to me, “These Truths I am showing you are True. You will know they are true because your mother-in-law will bring these things back from Israel.” Then the next scene in the dream I saw laid out on a red cloth table a wooden camel, wooden crosses. I was woken up from that dream and told to write it down, but I was so tired that I didn’t listen. I was woken up two more times and told to write it down, but I was so tired that I still didn’t listen. The next morning I woke up knowing I had a dream, but I could not remember what it was! That evening Perry Stone said on a show that if you have a dream write it down. Uugh.. I still couldn’t remember it. A week later my mother-in-law returned from her trip and she wanted to give us gifts. She handed me a beautiful beaded purse, then handed me small wooden camels and crosses and when I held them in my hand I was speechless. I thought there is something significant about this, what is it? I prayed again and asked the Father to forgive me for not writing the dream down and please help me remember it. He graciously answered my prayer and reminded me and I immediately recognized the camels and the crosses from the dream and the word He told me that what He was revealing to me as I searched His Word was TRUE. The Sabbath and Holy Days are His for ALL who love Him.
YHWH Himself was showing me the Way the Truth and the Life. He was my teacher and was preparing me. His Ruach HaQodesh would teach me all things I need to know. He calls those who are His own and He speaks to them directly. He knows who is sincere of heart and He knows them by name and His own know His voice. My grandma grew up in a stone house- the stone house represents my heritage and He was teaching me while stting infront of it. He is bringing us back to our roots- to our true heritage in Him. The Stone house represents Him and our heritage. My grandfather escaped the persecution leading up to the Holocaust. His family were wealthy.
I started studying the Scripture avidly as much as I could. In the early summer of 2002 a local Messianic Congregation was meeting close by. I soon led worship there. I prayed and asked the Father to teach me. I wanted to learn. But, instead of teaching me, He asked me to teach. For instance, one day while cleaning my house I kept passing the open Jewish Bible that had been given to me; it was on the Entertainment Center. I heard in my spirit that I was to go read it. But, I kept putting it off as I had much cleaning to do. Finally, a third time while passing it I saw golden sparks come up from it. So, I went to it and read from Nehemiah. He said, “This is your calling. As Nehemiah’s was to rebuild the wall so is yours. You will share it with the congregation next Erev Shabbat.” I thought, “Okay. If the Rabbi calls me then I will.” The next day Rabbi Jose called me and said he was told that I am to share a message the next Friday evening. I said, “Yes, the Holy Spirit already spoke that to my heart.” Since the Holy Spirit led me to Nehemiah, I felt that is what I was to share along with my testimony. I spoke on Nehemiah's call to rebuild the wall. The wall was miraculously rebuilt in 52 days! The Hebrew word for son is ben which has the numerical equivalent of 52! The Wall around Jerusalem is the Son! His Son is Salvation. Zechariah 2:5 For I, saith YHWH, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Isaiah 26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; SALVATION will YHWH appoint for walls. Isaiah 60:18 thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. After I gave the message from Nehemiah that evening a woman came up to me and said her heart was healed! Ten years later I was asked to pray for a woman in the prayer room at another congregation. I went to the prayer room - something happened. I was told to ask her if her heart had been healed ten years earlier. I looked at her and thought, “Could this be the same lady?” I asked her and she looked at me in wonder and said, “Yes, how did you know?” I recalled that evening and she smiled so big and I saw might and power in the room and people were touched. YHWH knew that the best way for me to learn would be to have me teach it. This is how He has worked many times in life. He puts such great desire in my heart to share His Word and that which He shows me. He knows that as I share it I will prepare and research and study as much as I can to
One afternoon in June 2002 after praying for direction, I looked up while kneeling in prayer and saw King David standing in the far right of the room. He was a burly man with reddish hair and beard. He wore a crown with a teal band across the front and his outer robe was magnificent and teal colored also. All around the room were saints from ages past, not just from biblical times. I saw Abraham to the far left and I recognized people from different time periods up to the present who had gone on before me. I asked why I was seeing them? Was it biblical? All of the sudden the sun shone brightly from the east into the room that morning and I heard, “They are preparing the way before you.” I recalled the scripture that says there is a cloud of witnesses present. Also Revelations speaks of the saints who are interceding for us.
One evening in September of 2012 after the Shabbat ended, I heard a still small voice say to kneel next to the bed in prayer, so I did. As soon as I kneeled on my knees, I heard Him speak to me, “Remember what you heard in your spirit over a decade ago? That you would be sifted as wheat?” I did remember and when I originally heard that while sitting at my computer desk that was then in the living room while I homeschooled the children, I rejected it. Who wants to go through that like Peter in the Bible did? Then YHWH continued, “I have sifted you over these past years. You have gone through a lot. But, now you are going to a new level.” I thought about Peter. I hadn’t admired him very much up to this point. I started thinking how YahShua asked him three times if he loved Him and he was grieved that he asked him that over and over probably recalling that he had denied him three times before the cock crowed even though he said he would never deny Him. I recalled how when I had the two young children and we were living in Ohio I kept opening over and over for three days in a row to John 14 & 15 where YahShua says, “If you love Me then keep my commandments.” I thought at that time, “Why do I keep opening to this? What am I suppose to see?” Then while still kneeling and thinking about this I heard, “What was Peter called to do after that?” I recalled that YahShua had called him to Feed His Sheep. This brought me comfort for now I knew that I too was called to Feed His Sheep.
Peter was also called to be a fisher of men. I too was called to be a fisher. The dreams I had where I was told to gently fish out the false doctrines and expose the lies inherited by our Fathers. Well Jeremiah 16 speaks of when we won’t speak of Israel who came out of Egypt but rather of the Exodus from countries where we’ve been scattered. He will send fishers and hunters to expose false doctrines.
Great Peace have they who love Your law. Nothing can make them stumble. Ps. 119:165
On this page I have shared some of the dreams YHWH gave me when He was making the call on my life- He literally called me by name and He is calling many to be fishers in this day.
While receiving Hebrew studying into my home each week to bring the Hebrew AlephBet learning to those of us here in Deltona who desired to learn, I dreamed that the Rabbi placed on my entertainment center two Torah Scrolls. One was big and the other was small. Be thankful for the Torah. He was giving me His Law and offering it to me right where I lived in my home.
According to Jeremiah 16 the Father was calling me to be a fisher and to fish out the false doctrines so that the true fish wouldn’t die or be contaminated, but to do so very carefully in love, not in haste. The woman, the Father’s wife standing under the tree- Her name is Wisdom, Chochmah.
So, vividly the calling is set forth in my life. How as a child He held His hand out to me -symbolic of Him calling me into the ministry.
Then He called me to repair the wall as Nehemiah- to bring my family back full circle.
Then to Feed His Sheep and to be a Fisher! HalleluYHWH! HalleluYAHWEH! He wants me to do this through my example of obedience of guarding His commands, through being knowledgeable and sensitive to His voice, through teaching about His Holy Language, through exposing false lies we’ve inherited from the fourth empire, through writing songs to His Scripture and love songs to Him. He wants me to share the dreams that He gave me as confirmation of His power and grace and to share my testimony.
Respectfully & With Great Love,

Psalm 1, “But his delight is in the law of YHWH; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Herein let us see Wisdom.
(Proverbs 4 “Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.For I too was a son to my father, still tender, and cherished by my mother. Then he taught me, and he said to me, “Take hold of my words with all your heart;keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.” Listen, my son, accept what I say,and the years of your life will be many. I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. For they cannot rest until they do evil; they are robbed of sleep till they make someone stumble. They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity;keep corrupt talk far from your lips. Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”
Also Proverbs 22:17. Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Ecclesiastes 7:19 Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city.
Ecclesiastes 9:16,18 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength. Wisdom is better than weapons of war.
Ecclesiastes 7:12 Wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
Isaiah 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times.
