Discussion for Proverbs 6

  • Eleonor viduya
    We have to keep our eyes open at all times to be prepared for His coming or us to be leaving in this world. To be prepared means, do we obey His words? Are we filled with The Holy Spirit,A seal of protection against evil ways? A surety of salvation? If we receive The Holy Spirit we are considered His servants or His armies to fight against all principalities, against all evil.

    in this image are that we have to do hard work like doingt they are doing hard work
  • Tyrek Jackson for verse 19
    Interesting right.... You see the word 'that' in italic formation... that normally mean that the word was not found in the original text... why not? Why was 'that' not found in the original text... I believe that when God speaks of a false witness, He is not making emphasis on flesh and blood but on the context and structure of the witness testimony itself... now i could be wrong but study I will do.. So here is a simplified question... what if God sees a 'false witness' as a testimony and not a person or a living being?

    All I know is that the Lord will do what pleases Him thus my duty is to wait do His "WILL" period end of quote
  • Vs. 6-11 is saying that you are expected to plan for your future. Live as if The Lord is coming NOW, but be prepared to be able to care for yourself for however long it takes for the Lord to return . We are stewarts of all that God has given us. It says that if you don 't work you don 't eat, other words if you don 't have it you can 't get it. If at all possible leave an inheritance behind. Take a lesson from the ant, be thrifty be industrious. Don 't be lazy, be prepared
  • This Scripture is saying that one should be thrifty, conscientious, gather and save for those hard times in life when you find you 're in need. Its about being a good steward of HaShems bounty and blessings. The old saying is "waste not want not " . You don 't know what tomorrow holds in store for you. Be prepared for the evil days. God is coming soon but until then "occupy until He comes "
