  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

    Proverbs 8:11-12 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

    Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

    Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

    Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out

    Proverbs 3:13 Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding.

    Proverbs 17:27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

    Ecclesiastes 7:1-29 A good name is better than precious ointment;

    1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

    Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given

  • Richard in Christ on Proverbs 1
    It is truly heart breaking to see how believers in Jesus Christ can become so divided. Calling one another sinners, cursed, or condemning them because they have slightly different views.

    Psalms 14:1 reads: The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God". They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Seems to be aimed toward atheists or ungodly people. Not Christians.

    I really don't think it's a big deal if people call Jesus Christ "God". I don't think our Father minds as long as we believe in His Son. It is our Fathers intention that we worship His son. He is the only way to the Father.

    As Chris stated there are many, many, Scriptures that prove Jesus Christ and God Almighty, our Father, are not the exact same. Though they are One. If that's too hard for some to comprehend I'm sorry. As Jesus Christ always points to His Father and the Father always points to Jesus. They are not selfish but meek. Just as His Word teaches us to be.

    Here's one verse from the NT one From the OT. And there are so many more but I'm ending with these. Please my brothers and sisters. There is no problem in seeking the truth. That's what our Father wants us to do. Please don't curse, or condemn, one another because your views of the Lord may be a little different. God Bless Everyone!

    Psalms 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

    Mark 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

  • Maria - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    Excellent! And if you read 5 Psalms/day, fir 31 days you will read through Psalms every 31 days! Psalms 119 will suffice for your reading for ONE day because it is the longest chapter in the Bible! Hence, 31 days.
  • Nancy Edwards on Proverbs 1
    Please could you tell me when we Believers get to Heaven will we see the Holy Spirit as a real person or is He only just inside of us forever? Thank you for reading this as I am so grateful. Nancy Edwards.
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    Nancy, the Scripture I like in respect to what you've asked is in Ephesians 1:13,14: "In whom (Jesus) ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom (Jesus) also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory."

    The verse reminds us that after we heard the Gospel & subsequently put our trust (faith) in Jesus, we were immediately given God's Seal of Promise. And this came to us through His Gift of His Spirit into our lives. And this was absolutely necessary to happen, as the Spirit's Presence is the "earnest" (the guarantee) of our inheritance: inheritance of our new relationship to the Godhead, of all of God's Blessings, Power, Joy & Peace and the guarantee that God would never leave us or forsake us, just as God promised in His Word: Deuteronomy 13:6 & the direct NT quote in Hebrews 13:5. And this Promise is fully seen by the presence of the Spirit in the lives of God's children.

    But Ephesians 1:14 goes on to say that this "sealing" & this "guarantee" by the Spirit is only until "the redemption of the purchased possession". I understand this to mean that when we finally get to Heaven (& indeed, 'what a day of rejoicing that will be'), the Spirit's presence will no longer be indwelling us as we will be in the presence of God & His Son Jesus. Jesus, in Heaven right now, is seated at His Father's right Hand & in the Body (now glorified) He had on Earth. And so we too shall be (1 John 3:2) in the day of our translation (Rapture) when both those alive & dead in Christ arise to be with the Lord forever.

    So our Redemption comes in two phases: redemption of our spiritual entity, when our spirits once given over to serving Satan, now have been redeemed by Christ's Blood to belong to & serve our Holy God. And redemption of the physical, when our bodies are transformed to live with Him.
  • The Holy Spirit - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Christ. He is Spirit. I haven't seen anything that tells us he has or will have a physical body.

    His presence will not be as strong on the earth when the Church of Jesus; His Bride, is caught up in the clouds to meet Jesus.

    It will be hard for people left behind to be saved. It will be totally in faith; they will pray and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.

    If people take the mark of the Beast to get food and internet: they are doomed already. Their choice has already been recorded in Heavens Book.

    Everyone I know falls in love with Jesus through the Holy Spirit. In Genesis where Abraham sends forth "his servant" to find Isaac a wife: I see the Holy Spirit (as the Masters servant). It's a beautiful story.

    Why did God not respect the offering of Cain?
  • Mishael on Cains Curse Genesis 4 5 - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Cain was firstborn but God rejected Cains offering. Maybe it was substandard?

    Abel was 2nd born and God was pleased with his offering and blessed him.

    Cain was indignant and disputed the event. God didn't change His mind.

    Cain slew Abel. He was cursed and marked for death. Later he married and had children.

    Eventually Lamech was born. By accident He slew Cain and lived long enough to survive the 70 times 7 times curse for killing Cain. He survived and later Noah would be born. Genesis 4:23

    Then Eve's 3rd born son, Seth, lived 912 years.
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Hello Mishael, I'm not seeing where it says Lamech killed Cain. Genesis 4:23 says he killed a man, but it doesn't say who. It says it could be a young boy, if it was a young boy, then that eliminates Cain as a possibility, since Cain was older than Lamech. Otherwise, if it was a man and a boy- two people he killed- we still don't know who, unless it says somewhere else?
  • Mishael on Cains Death - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    I already posted the reply. Why else would what Lamech confessed to, be followed up with mention of Cains curse

    If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech, seventy and seven fold.

    Who knows IF Cain knew whoever killed him was going to suffer 70 times 7 years. That's hatred.

    Cains daughter gave birth to Lamech. Cain beat up his Grandson.

    Sounds like year 2020 huh?

    That question has been on that page a couple of days. I did my best.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Real sorry. My finger gets Fat at night.

    Verse 4:15-16 and 23-24
  • Mishael - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Sorry, it's verse 15; 23-24. Center column says, for wounding and bruising me.

    There's a similar judgment in Ezekiel 9:4-6

    It's not described as a murder; it describes a fight.
  • Michael on Proverbs 1:1
    rebirth in bible is true or false
  • Mishael on a Happier Home - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Born again is as rebirth. It means both again. I prefer how Jesus explains it.

    In John 3, Jesus is telling Nicodemus how to be born again, spiritually. When he speaks about the wind, He is describing the Holy Spirit.

    We can pray for the Holy Spirit to visit our loved ones, convict them of sin and woo them to salvation. Pray and ask; then thank God for the answer. Having done all: to stand in FAITH.... not doubt. You gotta beat the devils off of family so they can respond to offered salvation.

    An angel tells Daniel, that Michael the Archangel had to fight against a demon prince to help this messenger get to Daniel.

    Daniel chapter 10:10-21.

    What you pray for, give thanks daily. Keep loved ones covered in prayers forbidding demonic influence.

    And nope, we don't get to order Michael around. We can ask God to give us angelic assistance. You already have a ministering angel.

    Here is a tip: when someone speaks forth the scriptures in the home; sings praises to God or talks what Jesus did today... angels hear it and record It in the Book of Remembrance . Malachi 3:16

    It's inspiring!

    "Then they that feared (respect & honor) the Lord spoke often one to another, and the Lord HEARKENED, and HEARD it, and a book of Remembrance was written BEFORE HIM, for them that feared the Lord, and thought upon His Name!

    So see, we can change the whole atmosphere in our homes! No swearing, no yelling insults and retorts; no gossip about others. Converse reverently about Jesus and you will have angels over at your place every day! How hard is that?

    If they hear you thanking the Lord for healing... the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness, salvation of loved ones etc...

    Your prayer and worship songs are being fast tracked right up front of Gods throne!!!

    Because Jesus sits at the right hand of God Almighty God of all there is! Jesus hears.

    Turn off Metallica and turn on Dion's Kingdom in the Streets cd. What's better than a happier home?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Michael, there was Jewish religious leader that asked a similar question to yours & you're probably aware of the story. His name was Nicodemus & he was confused when Jesus told him that he needed to be born again to see God's Kingdom (Read John 3:1-7). Nicodemus thought what Jesus meant by re-birth, was a second natural, physical birth, which of course, is laughable (as can be seen in verse 4). But Jesus then qualified his statement further, saying that a person must first be born physically (i.e. by water (v 5) which is the flesh (v 6)), and then secondly, to enter God's Kingdom, he must also be born spiritually (vv 5 & 6 again).

    So, Yes, re-birth by the Spirit, is true & that miracle can only take place when a person repents of his sin, humbles himself before God, & believes in the completed work of Jesus, accepting His death for him on the cross. There is no other way to receive new birth, though some have tried by leading a monastic lifestyle, self-improvement exercises & acts of piety, but all that serves is to bring on self-effort to attaining perfection (which will never happen) or trying to eliminate all their sin (which is impossible without a Perfect Sacrifice being made). So, I hope you can see that re-birth can only be an act by God upon a truly repentant person & not by man, and it is an act that isn't humanly understood, since the new birth takes place deep in one's life - in the spirit.
  • Mishael on strange fire - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Reincarnation is a religion of the devil. He has a little shop of horrors where you buy in to strange religion. Many of these are explained in the Bible. Every false god brings in a lot of demons with them.

    Strange books in the home can attract demons. They look at all your reading material. Check out your hard drive...

    Salvation is not rebirth. It's NEW birth into Jesus Christ; and receiving the baptism only the Holy Spirit can perform. The only way you can grow up strong is to believe in the God of the Holy Bible.

    Satan desires to ascend and take over Gods throne. He tried twice: at Adam and Eve, also when he saw Jesus die on the Cross. Next time he will be thrown into hell.

    Proverbs 1: what dose it mean?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 1:1
    Leaster, the Book of Proverbs has generally been attributed to King Solomon (v1). The first seven verses speak about the purpose of this Book (to give forth wisdom, knowledge, understanding, etc.). Then from verse 8 onwards, Wisdom personified, speaks, giving instruction in various aspects of life & its experiences. As you read the Book, & you have questions in understanding verses, then present them here as someone may be able to guide you.
