Proverbs Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Scott W Bestler on Proverbs 1
    Verses 20 to the end of the chapter make me think of something Jesus would've said at the gates of Jerusalem.
  • Alec on Proverbs 1
    so does Proverbs 1 mean that some will wait to long to be able to repent and not be able to find God, including some who may have repented and backslid to long knowing right from wrong and choosing wrong? The way i read this is there will be some who get into trouble and after a life of sin try to find God to get out of trouble but don't really want to repent and so they won't find God. Is this correct?
  • Adam - in Reply on Proverbs 1
    Dear Alec,

    Maybe you're referring to the last part of the chapter, especially the last verse Proverbs 1:33.

    In my opinion this is talking about following God (Jesus) or not. It makes a distinction between someone who hears wisdom and truth and obeys and fears the Lord and someone who doesn't. I think this is what we're seeing in the world today- a lot of fake news and foolishness that people want to believe. They hate the truth. They hate God and mock Him.

    As for backsliding, I personally believe we will be judged for all our actions and be punished/rewarded fairly and justly. But I believe Jesus's grace has a huge allowance for genuine followers who try but slip up. I believe all can be forgiven except blasphemy of the holy spirit.

    God bless...

    Hi, God bless all people. Dark sayings in 1-4 is an interesting word. The inner meaning of God can only be accessed through reading the bible and thought. Peace be with you.

  • Bonnie on Proverbs 1:19
    I love discussing the Bible. I see this scripture as saying that greed steals the life away of the one who is greedy. Working to amass wealth requires dedication, sacrifice, and for most compromise of morality and integrity. We lose our life because our focus is not on God. Some deemed as workaholics will spend their who life at the job. They are quick to sell away their life motivated by the greed of gain.
  • Suziq - in Reply on Proverbs 1:19
    Jesus doesnt say the words 'the deceitfulness of riches ' lightly .
  • Nomathemba on Proverbs 1
    Is it a must for a Christian to speak in tongues??
  • Marsha Dixon on Proverbs 1
    Proverbs 1:19 reminded me of a parables that JESUS spoke in ST Matthew a Owner had some property went away

    and rent them to some farmer the day of harvest is now come he send is servants to ask of them

    to send some of the harvest and they beat and kill all who the owner had sent to them so the owner decide to sent is only son, hoping they would show him some respect, but they did not they

    kill the owner son. because they wanted to take over the property knowing they're not the owner it's no different from GOD send is prophets to warn is people and they were killed

    by the wicked. so now GOD sent is only loving son JESUS to accomplished what was not

    and he die but will return as KING and punished all who did not fellow is command

    so will the owner of the VINYARD did just that punish and take back what did not belonging to them. These men did not use WISDOM on any level. They allowed the an evil spirit to take them over and will end up losing everything in the natural and spiritual.
  • Paula on Proverbs 1:6
    Dark sayings - not easily seen; you must seek out the meaning and search the Word to find the answers. Seeking understanding develops into wisdom; changing from seeking to application of principal ethics.
  • Rhonda on Proverbs 1:1
    Firstly, you cannot isolate a scripture if it is linked to a continuous reading or a message. Verse 29 is a part of the consequences of not taking the way of wisdom, that way of truth judgement and understanding. Verse 25 is the turning point, setting to zero Godly counsel and scoffing at the reproof of the right path. What you sow is what you reap. God loves us, but he is also our judge.
  • Noah Edelson on Proverbs 1:29
    I think I understand the meaning, but I don't know who is speaking. The guy sounds like a .. well, I'll show some restraint and just say horrid person. It does *not* sound like something Jesus would say, even in his tough love moments. It goes against "love thy enemy" at the very least. It would be super helpful if there was a way to identify who is being quoted on this site.
  • Abugh Ivuugh on Proverbs 1
    I love this proverbs book and I expecting to be feeding me with scriptures.
  • Ms Veronica Dessesseau on Proverbs 1
    I want to comment on Proverbs Chapter 1. I just would like to say, I'am a person who believes in the one and only true and Living God, Jesus his mighty son and the powerful Holy Spirit. I've seen them work in my life, so Holily and extravagantly, and they continue to do so. I give them all the glory, praise and the honor!. Godly wisdom is so VERY important to live in, especially in these last days, by the power of the Lord in us, because this world is sick! and is constantly trying to tell the Body of Christ, and the unsaved who believe in God, to live a life(or have lifestyles) VOID of Godly wisdom! AND reverence for him. It's sickening to see, how many of this fallen world, reject, Christian Values, and don't want to follow the Lord's instructions in the Bible, specifically, the Book of Proverbs, to live honorable lives! They want and like to follow the kardashians and the jenner's, but not to reverence the Lord, and obey his instructions, for daily living! It's sad seeing the times we are living in, and how the words of fools of sinning, of the world, in general and especially the entertainment industry (e.g. talk shows & t.v. shows, that make mockery of sin, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, & living RIGHT), are considered the "norm" & "cool." But if a UNSAVED wise person, along with the Body of Christ, comes along and tells another unsaved person to follow the BIBLES' Godly wisdoms, and live by them, they're laughed at, talked about and scorned! Unsaved elderly people, that ARE truly honorable, and truly believe in God, and their lives/lifestyles show it!, are always telling young people to live and do right! and not give into the worlds', and it's stupid satanic pop culture peer pressures. Me personally, I'm glad that I can't & don't want ANYTHING to do with ANYONE, who doesn't want to live in Godly wisdom permanently!. Christianity and it's values is the only way to live! The Lord makes it easy to live in his Godly wisdoms for daily living, and I'm glad!
  • Ms Veronica Dessesseau on Proverbs 1
    What is the difference between punishment and judgment from the Lord, that helps a person get AND stay on the right road with the Lord, and what is your understanding of the scripture in the Book of Psalm 119:175.

    Thank you
  • Dianne - in Reply on Proverbs 1:26
    Anthony once a person gets born again what We have been given is perfect in an imperfect body, so the potential to sin is always there. Read Romans 8 about walking by the spirit. The true God does not want us walking around afraid of Him why would He as a Loving Father want to harm His Spiritual Children, thats like saying if you have a child who doesn't listen then one day he changes and desires to obey all the time you still think bad of the child, doesn't make any sense. Hense God is almighty but also a tender loving merciful and forgiving father, also in Romans its the goodness of God that leads us to repentance. Endeavor not to think about the past, and look towards your future with your True Father and His Son. Good Day.

  • MICHO JOHN BAPTIST on Proverbs 1
    I thank you for ur app,

    How can i get wisdom? Thank you
  • 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.

    just found this bible study , im trying to read a proverb everyday and love this thank you
  • 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! Psalm 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 Eph 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.
