The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His ways and before His most ancient works. "? Proverb 8:22

1.Who did the Lord possess? Let's find out the guy who was possessed.
Let's see what happened in the beginning ...

In the beginning it was "the one who is the Word.
He was with God, and it was God. John 1: 1 and 2
He was with God in the beginning.

We see that the Lord at the beginning of His ways was with the WORD.

Who is the Lord and who is the WORD?
the Lord to which the verse refers to is God the Father ...
the Word was with the Father. the Father possessed the WORD. the Father was the WORD!
by the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and heavenly bodies by the breath of their mouth. Psalm 33: 6

Who is the Word?
Let us see this verse: "He is dressed in a robe dyed with blood, and his name is the Word of God. Revelation 19: 13
John 1:14
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We saw his glory, glory as the of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus is the Word that was with the Father, at the beginning of His ways, ...
He was with God ... "before His most ancient works",
Jesus Himself said through Solomon: "So, I was with Him (the Father) and was his student; and every day was his delight, enjoying Him all the time. Proverbs 8:30

Christ declared through Solomon: "The Lord possessed Me in the beginning of His ways and before His most ancient works. From eternity, I have been anointed [Wisdom]; from the beginning, before the beginning of the Earth. ... When he put his term into the sea, so that the waters would not pass over his command; when he composed the foundations of the earth, then, I was with him and was his student; and it was his delights every day, enjoying before him at all times . " Prov. 8:22, 23, 29 and 30. The Truth About Angels pg24

We see that Christ is THE WORD and WISDOM!
Christ was a student of the Father and learned every day and delighted, that is, He delighted in the teachings He learned from the Father! That is why Jesus became WISDOM because he learned from the greatest Sage in the Universe, the Eternal Father.
"We preach Christ crucified," declared Paul, "which is a scandal to the Jews and folly to the Greeks. But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, we preach Christ, the power of God, and the wisdom of God. . " I Cor. 1:23 and 24.

Christ, the Word (THE WORD), the Only Begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father - one in nature, character and purpose - the only Being in the entire Universe that could enter into God's counsel and purposes. The Great Controversy, p. 493.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, existed from eternity, as a distinct person, but one with the Father. He was the excellent glory of Heaven. He was the Commander of heavenly beings, and the homage and worship of angels was for He received it as of right. This was not usurpation towards God. "The Lord possessed Me at the beginning of His ways," He declares, "and before His most ancient works. From eternity, I have been anointed; from the beginning, before the beginning of the Earth. Before there were chasms, I was begotten; and before there were still fountains laden with water. Before the mountains were established, before the hills, I was begotten. He had not yet made the earth, nor the fields, not even the beginning of the dust of the world. , I was; when I was pacing around the face of the abyss. " Prov. 8: 22-27.

There is light and glory in the truth that Christ was one with the Father before the foundations of the world were laid. This is the light that shone in a dark place, making it shine with the original divine glory. This truth, infinitely mysterious in itself, explains other mysteries and truths that are otherwise inexplicable, at the same time that it is coated with inaccessible and incomprehensible light. ç
The Sovereign of the Universe was not alone in His work of beneficence. He had a companion - a co-worker who could appreciate His purposes, and share in His joy in bringing happiness to created beings. "In the beginning was the Word (WORD), and the Word (WORD) was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God." John 1: 1 and 2. Christ, the Word, the Only Begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father - one in nature, character, purpose - the only being who could penetrate all of God's counsel and purposes. "His name will be: Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Father of eternity, Prince of peace." Isa. 9: 6. His "outings are from ancient times, from the days of eternity". Miq. 5: 2. And the Son of God declares about Himself: "The Lord possessed Me at the beginning of His ways, and before His earliest works. ... When composing the foundations of the Earth, then I was with Him and was His student; and it was His delight every day, enjoying Him at all times ". Prov. 8: 22-30.
The Father worked for His Son in the creation of all heavenly beings. "In Him all things were created, ... be thrones, be dominations, be principalities, be powers: everything was created by Him and for Him." Col. 1:16. Angels are ministers of God, radiant by the light that always flows from His presence, and quick on the flight to do His will. But the Son, the Anointed One of God, "the express image of His person", the "radiance of His glory", "sustaining all things by the word of His power", has the supremacy over all of them. "A throne of glory, set high from the beginning" (Heb. 1: 3, 8), was the place of His sanctuary; "scepter of equity" is the scepter of His kingdom. Jer. 17:12. "Glory and majesty are before His face, strength and beauty in His sanctuary." 96: 6 "Mercy and truth" go before His face. Ps. 89:14. Patriarchs and Prophets page 34


What lesson should people learn from Jesus?
So, as Jesus learned Wisdom from the Father during the creation of the Universe, we must learn from Christ, WISDOM, the principles of daily lessons, as learning from an older brother, the firstborn ..., because "Wisdom cries out in loud voice in the streets, raise your voice in public squares, on the corners of noisy streets, she cries, at the city gates she makes her speech: ... If you will listen to my rebuke, I will give you a spirit of wisdom and reveal to you my thoughts. For ... "If any of you lack wisdom, ask God, who gives freely to all, willingly; and it will be granted. But ask it in faith, without doubting, for he who doubts is like the wave of the sea, carried and stirred by the wind. James 1: 5-6


But if the person has no Wisdom what to do?
Solomon asked God for wisdom and how did God respond to this request?
Give me wisdom and knowledge, so that I can lead this nation, for who can rule this great people of yours?
God said to Solomon: Since this is the desire of your heart and you have not asked for riches, nor goods, nor honor, nor the death of your enemies, nor long life, but wisdom and knowledge to govern my people, over which I made him king. 2 Chronicles 1:10 and 11
God gave Solomon wisdom, extraordinary insight and a range of knowledge as immeasurable as the sand of the sea. Solomon's wisdom was greater than that of all men of the east, and that of all the wisdom of Egypt. Men of all nations came to hear Solomon's wisdom. They were sent by all the kings who had heard of their wisdom. 1 Kings 4: 29,30 and 34
The Lord gave Solomon wisdom, as he had promised. 1 Kings 5:12
Once, the queen of Sheba came to visit Solomon and "seeing all the wisdom of Solomon, as well as the palace he had built, Then she said to the king, Everything I have heard in my country about your achievements and of your wisdom it is true.
But I didn't believe what they said, until I saw it with my own eyes. In reality, they didn't even tell me half; you go far beyond what I heard, both in wisdom and in wealth. How happy must the men of your court, who are continually before you and hear your wisdom! People all over the world asked audience to Solomon to hear the wisdom that God had given him.1 Kings 10: 4,6,7,8 and 24
The rest of the events of Solomon's reign, everything he did and the wisdom he had, they are all written in Solomon's historical records. "1 Kings 11:41


If you think you are too simple to have Wisdom, see what the Psalmist says:
" The law of the LORD is perfect, and it cools the soul; the testimony of the LORD is faithful, and gives wisdom to the simple. "Psalm 19: 7


But he who thinks he has Wisdom, see what the Lord says?
"Thus says the Lord: Do not boast the wise in his wisdom, nor boast in the strong in his strength; do not boast in the rich in his riches. But whoever boils, boast in this: in knowing Me and knowing that I I am the Lord, who gives charity, judgment and justice on earth, for I am pleased with these things, says the Lord. " Jer. 9:23 and 24.

But for those who despise wisdom what will happen?
But if you despise ... "How long will you, inexperienced, be content with your inexperience? You scoffers, how long will you take pleasure in mockery? And you fools, how long will you despise knowledge? ... Proverbs 1: 20-23
You, however, rejected my invitation; nobody cared when i held out my hand! Since they totally despised my advice and did not want to accept my rebuke, I, for my part, will laugh at his misfortune; I will scoff when what they fear falls on you, when what falls on you like a storm, when disaster strikes you like a storm, when anguish and pain overwhelm you. Then you will call me, but I will not answer; they will search for me, but they will not find me. Since they despised knowledge and refused the fear of the Lord, they did not want to take my advice and ignored my warning, Proverbs 1: 24-30

What happens to those who resist the Wisdom of God?
His wisdom is profound, his power is immense. Who tried to resist you and came out unscathed? Job 9: 4

What is the most humiliating lesson that a man should learn?
The most humiliating lesson that man has to learn is the nullity of human wisdom, and the folly of seeking, through his own helpless efforts, to find God. He may exercise his intellectual powers to the fullest, he may possess what the world calls a higher education, yet he may still be ignorant in the eyes of God. Ancient philosophers boasted of their wisdom; how much, however, did she weigh in the balance of God? Solomon had great scholarship; but this wisdom was madness, for it did not know how to remain in moral independence, free from sin, in the strength of a character molded after divine likeness. Solomon told us the results of his research, his painful efforts, his persevering inquiries. He declares his wisdom to have been vanity.
The world did not know God by wisdom. His estimation of divine character, his imperfect knowledge of divine attributes, did not expand or expand his mental concept. His mind was not ennobled in accordance with the divine will, but he plunged into the grossest idolatry. "Calling themselves wise, they became mad. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of corruptible man, and of birds, and of quadrupeds, and of reptiles." Rom. 1:22 e 23.- Selected Messages vol1 pág249

But, after all, what is Wisdom for?

When all Israel heard the king's verdict, he came to respect him deeply, for he saw that God's wisdom was in him to do justice. 1 Kings 3:28
And you, Ezra, with the wisdom that your God has given you, appoint magistrates and judges to administer justice to all the people of the territory west of the Euphrates, to all who know the laws of your God. And to those who don't know them, you should teach them. Ezra 7:25
We see, therefore, that WISDOM is for God's people to minister righteousness among the peoples, as did Solomon.


You must obey and fulfill them, so that other peoples will see your wisdom and discernment. When they hear all these decrees they will say: "Indeed, this great nation is a wise and intelligent people." Deuteronomy 4: 6
No doubt you are the people, and wisdom will die with you! Job 12: 2

means rather He is Wisdom: "I have been anointed (Wisdom)"
