Discussion for Proverbs 27:14

  • Robin Joyner on Proverbs 27:14
    When Good advice ( hidden) is accompanied by evil confusion, how can this possibly be from God?
  • Mishael on Author of Confusion - in Reply on Proverbs 27:14
    That scripture refers to Psalm 12:2. You should read all of Psalm 12. It might make more sense. ( open the links)

    1 Corinthians 14:33

    For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

    James 3:16

    For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

    Since it shows a situation of no peace; strife; every evil work...I'm thinking Satan is at work in these situations. He comes to steal, kill, destroy. His mandate.

    People who are not born again are at the bidding of Satan.

    People fight about all the wrong things. If we open a door, the devil and his demonic hoards will come in and wreck lives, families, health, marriages, steal your children away; and lots more.

    We can see in Ephesians 6 (open this link)

    That we have permission to fight back, and send the demonic into outer darkness.

    I've gone through so much spiritual warfare it just turns my focus into radar. It makes me happy satan is going to be locked up a 1000 years and the on to hell eternally.

    If you don't know that much go on YouTube. Lots of spiritual warfare preachers, praise God. Point is: get up off the floor and fight back at the source of evil.

    I was stalked 3 years over 3 states. I quit running; turned to face the evil and sent that person running at a high rate of speed.

    Hate sin, Love God.
  • Elove on Proverbs 27:14
    Wesley seems to say it means what I thought it to mean. Reminds me of Matthew 23:5
    But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
