Discussion for Proverbs 29

  • A disciple
    Robert Johnson; The Lord Jesus Christ IS the Truth; the Son of God, with all authority in heaven and on earth. Moses was the meekest of men and there was never ever anywhere a servant of God or prophet like him! We are commanded by God to believe in His only begotten Son Jesus, and all have the same faith, to be of one accord and one mind and agree in the one and the same Spirit; with NO DIVISIONS

    To "THE" Faith?? My Faith is not your Faith... Romans 14:22 Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. In other words, no words of others de-fine my Faith... Neither Moses or Jesus but the Truth itself, as God is the Truth!! Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen. I care not that you can read some words from a book but that you would provide the "Evidence with Testimony" as to how your Faith is manifest by real life experience, by your works!! James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Do any one of "EWE" wish to compare notes?? I have read these words, therefore, after I have read these words, this is that time "AFTER WORDS"!! Who will answer this?? Or is it that your testimony will not stand, "ON CROSS"??

    The fear of another person can be a trap to individuals. This scripture could benefit children at school. Peer pressure is difficult for many kids, and often leads to problems. This scripture can encourage children to keep the Bible principles they are being taught and not to worry about what others might think. Trust in Jehovah and he will protect you.

    29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. The tongue is the deadliest sword. We need Gods guidance when we speak. Lord help me watch when I speak and what I say when I do speak. There are times when we have to be silent and allow God to work it out. There is wisdom in his Word.
