1 Corinthians 2:7 (AMPC); But rather what we are setting forth is a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding] and now revealed to us by God — [that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence].
There is wisdom that is hidden and when it is brought to light, it is for the glorification of the sons of men.
However, there is also wisdom that is hidden which when brought to light brings destruction and death. This kind of wisdom is forbidden wisdom. The reason why it is forbidden is that it is not beneficial to the sons of men. In James 3:15, the Bible refers to this as demonic wisdom.
When a man is inspired to create an atomic bomb to annihilate millions of people, can you classify that as the wisdom of God? No, it is forbidden wisdom.
How about the inspiration that came to a man to conceive ways of killing the life of a child while it is still in the womb, was that the wisdom of God at play? No, it was forbidden wisdom.
Like the world has seen innovations that were a result of forbidden wisdom, there are also doctrines in the body of Christ that are a result of this kind of wisdom. One such doctrine is the practice of exorcism by Christians which is a far cry from the mandate given to us by Christ to cast out demons.
Every time you seek to manifest certain realities from the realm of the spirit to the physical realm, either by way of an invention or by revelation, you must ensure that it stands up to the test of the true wisdom of God, of which wisdom the Bible says that it is pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17).
It should never be heard that a child of God, either by reason of ignorance, indifference or greed accessed forbidden wisdom and unleashed its disastrous effects upon the earth. Your ideas, inventions and revelations must be for the betterment of mankind.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Every time you seek to manifest certain realities from the realm of the spirit to the physical realm, either by way of an invention or by revelation, you must ensure that it stands up to the test of the true wisdom of God.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this truth. The wisdom at work in me is the wisdom from above. I access the spiritual realm by the true light and can never transact in forbidden wisdom because I understand how You work. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
