How Should We View Counsel?

How should we see counsel? In order to reply this question, we must first understand just what the term counsel can intend to us. From Volume I of the Penetration book we see it can come up to mean will, purpose, finding or design, as when Yahweh declared in Isaiah 46:10, "My ain advocate volition stand." It is those counsels of the hearts, that is, the plans, designs, purposes, or determinations, of his interior ego that volition be exposed when the Godhead Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus come ups to render judgment. At Ephesians 1, poetry 11, the Type B portion reads, "according to the manner his volition counsels", and may be understood to intend "according to the intent or determination, that is, an look of God's will." In Acts Of The Apostles 20:27, the apostle Alice Paul said that he was free of bloodguilt because he did not throw back from instruction "all the advocate of God", that is, everything that is indispensable for salvation.

No 1 person possesses all knowledge. Proverbs 12:15 states us the individual who attentivenesses sound advocate is wise. For one to reject the advocate of experienced advisers, as King Rehoboam did, and as Jehovah's chosen people did, was the tallness of their folly, and the cavity of their despair.

Jehovah is the owner of wisdom in the absolute sense. Both Isaiah 40:13 and Romans 11:34 state us He alone necessitates no 1 to advocate him and also that there is none around who is in such as a place to make so anyway. His Son is able to move as "Wonderful Counselor," providing advocate and direction, because he received and followed counsel from his Father and have God's spirit. This stresses that if advocate is to be beneficial, it must take Yahweh into consideration. Any advice that stands in resistance to the Most High is valueless. It is no advocate at all.-Proverbs 19:21; 21:30

So how should we see advocate given us from the Elders? We are frail, sinful, world trying to do it through Satan's system of things, hoping to last to the end. We don't cognize everything and demand aid with much. If we should steal up at times, the Elders are there to advocate us and point out a surer manner for us. And though they too are also frail and imperfect, it is in our best involvement to mind their counsel, because the Faithful and Discreet Slave, under Jehovah's Godhead guidance, have got appointed these work force to their several places in the congregation. We therefore should accept any advocate they offer as though it were consecutive from Jehovah's lips, accept it and follow it, because by doing so, we demo Yahweh that we are in credence and understanding with the agreement he have put in topographic point for us, and by doing so we shall truly delight our Godhead Jehovah, as His chosen 1s of old could never do.
