Discussion for Proverbs 7

  • Craig
    This chapter God is warning us of a
    adultrous church bound by the law of her
    husband. Romans 7. The foolish follow her smooth speech. The Goodman, Jesus, is gone and has redemption and is coming back. The woman is the church. The rock bands sing about her today. Zeppelin, Stairway to heaven, I am amazed how few people understand this. The Word is our God. Her Word is a strange god. Fear God

    This young man failed to consider the consequences of his actions. He acted without reasoning and this led to him making a deadly mistake.

    Proverbs 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks Jeremiah 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

    John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

    Norm,I am sorry you think I am contentious in these matters.The Word tells us to contend for the faith.I believe what you write when you are copying scripture only. But much of what you write is your own imaginings. Proverbs 7 warns against sexual immorality, but you say otherwise.I do not hate correction. This is the end of the discussion for me.

    John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life but the wrath of God abideth on him. Romans 2:8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, John 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
