Seven Pillars of Wisdom

During our most recent meeting, the question was asked:
"Why is Wisdom, referred to as female?"
That question was in reference to Prov.9:1
Starting with that verse... here are verses 1-6:
"1 Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars. 
(Prov.31:10,17-18,26-27; 3:13,18; 9:1; Rev.3:12; Prov.9:1; Rev.1:16,20; 4:5; Matt.5:14,15; Rev.5:6) 
2 She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table
(Luke 17:7-10; 12:42-44; Rev.4:5; Luke 12:35-37) (Prov.31:18,14-16)
3 She has sent out her servants, and she calls from the highest point of the city, 
(Matt.5:14-15; Prov.31:31)
‘Let all who are simple come to my house!’ To those who have no sense she says, 
(1Cor.3:18; Prov.31:10,20) 
‘Come, eat my food and drink the wine I have mixed. 
(John15:5; Isa.55:1-2; Rev.22:17) 
6 Leave your simple ways and you will live; walk in the way of insight.’" 
Proverbs 2:6 reads; "For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding."
Prov.2:6 helps us to see that God is the ultimate source of all wisdom. Any wisdom sent by Him into the world, is by means of His spirit. -- Those who become the 7 pillars of wisdom (Prov.9:1; Rev.3:12), are those who convey, the "seven spirits of God, sent out into all the earth" (Rev.5:6).
They are also seen as "horns"(with eyes/lamps -Matt.6:22; Rev.4:5) on the head of Christ the Lamb (Rev.5:6). "Horns" are kings (Rev.17:12; 5:10). 
In all these considerations; those who are the seven pillars of wisdom, are a part of the Temple of God (Rev.3:12). That temple, is his priesthood (Rev.3:12; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5) 
That Temple is also the Bride of Christ (Rev.21:2-3,6; 22:17). She is the heavenly mother (Gal.4:26) who offers wisdom from God (Rev.22:17,1).
This is why the source of Wisdom, is referred to as female. It comes to mankind through the 7 pillars of God's Temple, which belong to, the Bride of Christ.
Prov.3:13-14,18; Zech.8:23; Rom.2:28-29
