Which best represents the problem with the comment?
Proverbs 1:1. Clearly, King Solomon is the major Author/contributor. And the meaning of Proverbs: these are the sayings taken from everyday life & intended to serve as practical guidelines for 'successful' living.
Proverbs 1:2-6. Its Purpose is that the reader might know wisdom & allow it to govern his/her life.
Proverbs 1:7. The Theme of the book is that the fear (deep reverence) of the LORD is the starting point and essence of wisdom (and Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge that comes through a right relationship with God).
Proverbs 1:8 to Proverbs 9:18. Show the Precepts of Wisdom (rules to be followed).
a. 1:8-19 (avoid bad company).
b. 1:20-33 (to heed Wisdom's advice; wisdom personified as a woman inviting all to come to her & learn).
c. 2:1-22 (the master teacher describes the joyful results of pursuing & acquiring Wisdom: Wisdom is God-given (vv6,7) & is beneficial as it delivers one from the ways of evil men (vv10-15), from the arms of the adulteress (vv 16-19), and preserves one's life & character (vv 20-22).
Hopefully, this broad outline will help you read & learn these chapters' contents & the reason for their writing.
I say God is Omnipotent,there is nothing he cant do,and you claim my God is to small...
Your about,a,million and a half miles from understanding anything that was said there
go back to face book, this is a Bible sight.
Here are three examples: Isaiah 42:8; Jeremiah 16:21 and 33:2.
Yes Yahweh is God.
Here we see it says the fullness of what makes up God the Creator dwelled in the Lord Jesus Christ- Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Isa9:6 is very telling, look at all the names of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor (Holy Ghost), The mighty God, The everlasting Father (Also the Father), The Prince of Peace.
The everlasting Father
The mighty God
We see from scripture, unless I missed a spot but there is only 1 image of God, The Lord Jesus Christ
Col 1:15, 2cor 4:4
We humans are made in his Image AND Likeness.
What does this mean? Image-Body/Spirit Likeness-Character, Emotions, The soul.
It even says we have the 3 and they are 1 yet we are not 3 people.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Isa 9:6 says speaks of the Lords Spirit when it mentions He will be called Wonderful, Counselor
What about the soul? The Father? Jesus mentions His (The Father)"shape" being unknown
John 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Col 1:15 calls Him "Invisible" Yet He is one with the Word made flesh, The Son
We are made in His Image and likeness, body soul and spirit
His Glory/Image/Majesty is displayed in the Lord Jesus Christ of whom is the
"Body" of God- Col 2:9,2 Cor 4:4, Col 1:15
Even the Lord Jesus Himself tells you unless He Himself is Being praised, Not the Father, nor the Spirit but HIM they are false look at what Joh 16:13,14 says about the Spirit of Truth.
If there is no physical matter, it does not exist.
Humans can only see 10% of whats around them. All of Gods Holy family,including him are 100% physical.
They are not made of iron ore Earth as a human. Iron ore flesh can only see iron ore matter.
Couple things of many,to remember, it says "you may have entertained a angel".or when God appeared in physical form with Abraham,or when Moses saw his back.when God says 'I will do this with my mighty arm',he isn't kiddin
God is 'Omnipotent'.That means there isn't Anything he cant do.
including iron ore form of His Son
Even though I can't give you any clear Scripture to show God withdrawing His Spirit back into Himself, we have to surmise in our understanding of all of revealed Scripture we have, that as God sends out His Word & His Spirit, He must also withdraw them when His Work is done. Romans 8:26,27 tells us that the Holy Spirit helps us in our prayers, when we are ignorant on how to pray or what to pray. And it says that the Spirit helps us by lifting our 'deficient, uninformed' prayers to the Father, with His 'groans' or 'utterances' which we don't perceive. This the Spirit does because of His constant connection to the Godhead (as even Jesus had & enjoyed on Earth), & He is well able to translate our prayers into valid utterances that conform to the Will of God. But there are times that we ask (from the flesh) outside of God's Will (see James 4:3) & our prayers go no further than our ceiling.
So when the Spirit returns to God at the appointed time, we can't conclude that the Spirit will not again be sent out to fulfil another purpose of God. Where we fail in our understanding is that, since as humans we can't do what God does, so we conclude, that God can't do it either. Just as our spirits return to God Who gave it ( Ecclesiastes 12:7), so will His Holy Spirit return to the Godhead.
>He will still be involved with those that are born again after the Rapture and all through the Tribulation.
>During the time of The Two Witnesses.
>His Ministry in Jerusalem, many people will be saved. Also by the 144,000 evangelists. Angels.
>God is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.
2 Timothy 4:5
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, and make full proof of thy ministry.
1 Corinthians 3:13
Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
1 Corinthians 3:14
If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
1 Corinthians 3:15
If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Evangelism may not be taught in your Church, but it was always in the Bible. You have a "testimony " of how you came to believe in Jesus; and that is enough to get someone else's name in the Lambs Book of Life.
Now is a perfect time to witness to others their need to choose Jesus and accept forgiveness and eternal life.
It's not about rewards. It's about saving souls.
Today is the day of rescue and salvation from this spiritual warfare. You need to confess any sin(s) and receive Gods forgiveness over the past. Ask God to break all curses over you from that time to today.
In 1 John 1:9, it's best to stay current for things we do, but wish we had not done or said them. The Holy Spirit works inside of our conscience to let us know that's one we need to pray and be released from.
Reading the Bible, New Testament books will help us to side step the pits we fall over sometimes. You can listen to the Bible in your car driving to work, on Youtube; on your phone.
Our flesh leads us astray often. Bible reading stops that. I pray that you will follow Jesus and be a disciple to lead others to light and freedom. Jesus is the Light of the World. Amen.
King Solomon, had many of the teachings from his father, who received wisdom and knowledge from God.
This book is capable of making anyone who read it WISE. So it is in today's society, anyone who reads it and seek wisdom to understand it from God, will benefit.
