The foolish and fool in the Bible.

The foolish and fool in the Bible.




(Mat 25:6 KJV) And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Midnight is the time that the bride will be taken out of the earth. The cry is a clamor or outcry that Jesus is coming. This outcry o
r clamor will almost certainly be initiated by the five wise virgins who are fully awake, alert and beckoning for Jesus to return. I personally believe that the initiation of the midnight cry has already begun among the five wise virgins. This clamor is already moving among the Church like wildfire, and very shortly world shaking events are going to occur that will confirm the year for Messiah the Prince. THE FOOLISH virgins are already beginning to arouse from their deep sleep, and the clamor is just starting to be heard by some of the goodmen of the house. It is when this clamor reaches the entire Church, and some earthshaking events occur that the sleeping virgins will awaken according to the following verse.

We can think ourselves wise, but without God we are fools. A person that trusts only himself to make good judgment is a fool and is not wise. Instead of seeking wisdom from God, a fool follows his heart that cannot discern truth from lies nor good from evil. Vanity and conceit make people think that they are wise, but the reality is that their conceit has made them a fool. See below for Biblical commentary and advice on fools that think themselves wise.

In the Bible itself tells many many times how's fool people for rejecting the truth/ the word of God.

A Fool: A Person Without God Who Thinks Himself Wise.

We can be great debaters and think ourselves wise, but without God we are fools. God is the source of all knowledge and truth. He is the one that reveals knowledge to us.

See Scripture Commentary. Romans 1:22 tells us of unbelievers who professed themselves to be wise, but became fools.

A Fool Thinks Himself Wise To Trust Only on Their Own Counsel.

A person that trusts only himself to make good judgment is a fool and is not wise. God created us to rely on Him for His purposes. He is our moral compass who we should trust to make good decisions in life.

See Scripture Commentary. Proverbs 12:15 advises us of fools that believe that they are wise in their own eyes.

A Fool and His Wisdom: Follows His Evil Desires Not Knowing the Consequences.

Many a fool thinks he is wise. Instead of seeking wisdom from God, a fool follows his heart that cannot discern truth from lies nor good from evil.

See Scripture Commentary. Proverbs 14:16 advises us how the wise understand the consequences of their actions and fools do not.

A Fool: His Conceit Convinces Himself That He is Wise.

Vanity and conceit make people think that they are wise, but the reality is that their conceit has made them a fool. When we are full of conceit and pride, we think we are wiser than other people and God.

See Scripture Commentary. Proverbs 26:12 advises us of how conceit can turn us into fools.

A Fool: Their Imprudence Results in Stupidity and Misinformation.

The definition of imprudent is defined as “lacking forethought or caution; resulting from stupidity or misinformation”. The Bible parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins provides a good example of the definition of imprudence. The five foolish virgins did not follow through on what they needed to do to meet all eventualities.

See Scripture Commentary. Matthew 25:3 tells us of the imprudence of the five foolish virgins.

Calling someone a fool is not automatically wrong. Our question illustrates the need to taking all the Bible has to say on a given subject before we arrive at a conclusion. Jesus called some fools. Here him: "Ye fools and blind..." (Matt. 23:19). In this same chapter Jesus calls these people "Hypocrites" and "blind guides." Yet, beloved, Jesus was without sin (Heb. 4:15). Jesus was clear in his teaching (in such cases). He clearly identified those against whom he spoke (Matt. 23:2ff).




The Bible often calls certain ones fools (empty headed or refusing to do God's will). The atheist is called a fool (Ps. 14:1), the slanderer is said to be a fool (Prov. 10:18), those who despise instruction (Prov. 15:5), a contentious person (Prov. 18:6), the one who lives for pleasure (Luke 12:13-20), the one who trusts in his won heart (Prov. 28:26) all are called fools by God.



Does the Bible condemn calling one a fool?

Our question suggests the Bible is our standard of determining right and wrong. Indeed, God'' word is the standard (Gal. 2:14).

Calling someone a fool can be wrong. Jesus condemned calling one a fool out of unjustified anger (Matt. 5:22). If one calls another a fool out of sinful hate, then calling someone such a name (or any similar term) is wrong.

Beloved, Christ called those who do not build on a rock (Christ's teaching), but build on the sand fools (Matt. 7:26, 27). What is your status, in God's sight? Are you a wise person or a foolish individual. You can change your status now, but the Judgement Day will be too late (Heb. 3:7,8).




You become the foolish virgin because "WHILE THE BRIDEGROOM TARRY, THEY ARE ALL SLUMBER AND SLEEPING.
The church of Jesus Christ is largely sleeping like a great bedroom, And you've all the Christians in bed and they're all sleeping and they're saying "please don't wake me up ! I want to sleep on !"

One of my FB friend told me this : "amen Christine, I agree with u 1000%, God is laughing at the fools out there ... How many really KNOW HIM and KNOW HIS voice ???

I told her "Not too many, many of them do not know the truth/ God's voice, I found many non believers and even christians who reject the true God's word/ the right doctrine become upset when I rebuke them they are fool and they think I call their names, in the reality I do not, but tell them the truth, so they can get up from their sleep/ out of their foolishness.
We can think ourselves wise, but without God we are fools. A person that trusts only himself to make good judgment is a fool and is not wise.
In the Bible itself tells many many times how's fool people of rejecting the truth/ the word of God."

This is I'm talking about the people who do not believe God exists and His word and the ones who reject Jesus as their Savior and the Lord .

How fool they are who do not believe the Bible , THE WORD OF GOD !

Psalm 14:1-3, KJV
"1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

God/ Jesus Himself tells people in His word (Not my own word):
Luke 24:25, KJV
25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

“The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
Fools are those who follow “the god of this age” 2 Corinthians 4:4.
When we did not believe in Jesus we were fools (Titus 3:3).
