Proverbs Chapter 3 Discussion

  • VOPS on Proverbs 3
    Prov. 3:11-12 speaks to me differently.

    "My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

    For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth".

    Some troubles faced by us these days is as a result of lack of knowledge, which leads to punishment from our Lord and Creator because we have despised HIM.

    However, these punishments should be seen as an act of chastening by God so that we become conscious and get back to the right path, of which we should not be weary of. In fact, he is only correcting us with such punishments mainly because he loves us - our Creator is a forgiving God.

    In John 3, when Jesus was speaking to Nicodemas; He said we must be Born Again from Above. Then he explained the Holy Spirit who Jesus will send to us.

    Jesus is the one who baptizes us with the Holy Spirit.

    This matches with what is being said in Acts.

    Water baptisms are a beautiful way to invite friends and family to witness in the flesh, what has happened in the Spirit. It's not mandatory.

    I know I was baptized the night I was saved. I had been in the occult for years; so I had a big problem with demons; UNTIL I STARTED READING THE BIBLE, like my life depended upon it. One day I ordered all evil spirits to leave!! I asked God for angels to protect me and my son.

    He answered that prayer. I read my Bible every day like it was food. It's been 37 years, traveling the road of ever increasing Faith. I don't doubt anything in scripture. Because Jesus Christ IS the Word.

    You're doing good.

    Jesus christ told His deciples in Mattew 28:19 go to all the nations and make deciples of them Baptized them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Ghost. Which I think that is the wrong way of Baptizing a person using tides I think the right way of baptism in ithe Holy scripture in the Bible is in Act 2:38. When Peter said to the people around him he said Repent everyone of you and be Baptized in the Name of Jesus christ for the remassion of your sins. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost because the promise is unto you and your children and those who are near or afar off and as many as the Lord our God shall call. Amen

    Verse 27-If it is within our power to help someone we should not hold back. We can help materially, emotionally, or physically but the important thing to do is to help if we can.

    Hi Steise.

    My understanding concerning wisdom as a Feminine noun is meant for one to hold wisdom as something very special and to be sought after.

    Proverbs 1:3-7.

    Proverbs 4:5-13.

    God bless.

    Hello Steise. Your first paragraph interested me & would seek clarification as to where you received that information. In my Hebrew Lexicon, 'Elohim' is a Masculine Noun; 'Shekinah' is a word not found in the Bible, neither associated with the Holy Spirit; and the 'Spirit' is a Feminine Noun, depicted as 'wind, breath, spirit', but 'Holy' is a Neuter Noun. In Greek, 'Spirit', is a Neuter Noun.

    'Shekinah' was first used by Jewish Rabbis in the inter-testamental period, to show to the people various aspects of God. E.g God's Presence amongst His people ( Exodus 19:16-18); the Glory of God in the Temple ( 2 Chronicles 7:1); & how God dwells in the mountain ( Psalm 68:16-18) but was never found or used from their Scriptures.

    But, you're correct, that 'wisdom' is a Feminine Noun, as nouns in Hebrew (& many other languages) were given a specific gender. Is my understanding incorrect with these words, in light of what you have stated & then further developed from them? If so, what reference are you using in sharing from the original languages?

    And yes, the Bible is full of mysteries that we may never fully understand this side of Heaven, but we should enjoy what we do know & subsequently learn to appreciate the Gems given to us. When our foundational Truths are clear, we can then confidently build upon them.

    Psalms 37:4, but also consider Romans 1:21-32,

    I pray GOD give us HIS holy desires in our hearts that are pleasing to HIM. Psalms 12-14,

    Desire God, follow Christ, and your needs will be fulfilled.

    Your NEEDS, not necessarily your wants - important difference. God knows your needs!

    Matthew 6:26

    "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?"

    In Christ.

    I say: God will give us wat we truly need.

    I say: Our Father will give us good gifts to us, His children

    palms 37:4

    He will give you your hearts desire.

    Some say He will put his desire in your heart , others say he will know your desire , and will give .

    What say you ?

    In the King James Version there is no incarnation, but here is the definition for incarnation - a person who embodies in the flesh a deity, spirit, or abstract quality. (in Christian theology) the embodiment of God the Son in human flesh as Jesus Christ. John put it this way

    John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2The same was in the beginning with God.

    1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

    1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

    We as christains say the word was manifested in a fleshly form. The word that was spoken to mary was manifested into a flesh and blood as a baby.

    God Bless

    stay prayed up ready to go up

    Amen Paulie.

    Proverbs 3:5. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
  • Paulie H on Proverbs 3:5
    This is simply, whatever God has said here, believe it over your own knowledge, because God is right, even if you have no understanding of what he is saying to us, still know its right before your own beliefs.
  • Paulie H on Proverbs 3:2
    This means it will literally add years onto your life, never wondered how Adam and his offspring lived so long? Well it tells you here, its simply that what this verse says, follow our Gods ways and it will lengthen your life, ofcourse how strictly you follow it will be the reward outcome.
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    This very important command is found in so many verses in the New Testament as it puts into action the Love that God has shown to us in Christ. If that Love was so powerful & engaging to us, the change effected in us, must also become practical to others. The question then is, 'How much do we love ourselves?' And it doesn't speak of us being vain, admiring ourselves in the mirror & entertaining useless thoughts of grandeur & of great worth to others. Rather, it reminds us that what we go through every day, is to ensure our survival on Earth & trying to foster happiness in our lives to overcome heartache & despair.

    Do we feed & clothe ourselves? Do we engage in exercises of the body & mind to keep us healthy? Do we put some money away for our future & for our children? Do we have roofs over our head & appliances to help us in the home? And many other things that you might think of that apply to your well-being. In like manner, the love & care we give to ourselves & loved ones, must also produce from that same heart, both a sympathy & an empathy for those who may not be as fortunate as us, whether those immediately around us or in our cities (our neighbour) or in other countries, where hunger, disease, poor sanitary conditions, etc. are rife. Many would just say 'Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?' ( James 2:16), hoping that someone else will see to their needs. But the Love of Christ constrains us: that if see someone in need (especially a real need from no fault of their own), then it should not only be our hearts, tears & prayers that go out for them, but some real practical help that will make their lives a little better.

    Some engage in full-time service to meet others' needs - I can't think of a better profession than this, as is to share the Gospel of Christ so that their empty, sinful hearts may also be healed & restored. This is true love shown to others.
  • JoAnn Hutcherson on Proverbs 3
    Proverbs 3: It scares me to think now where I would be without Christ/God in my daily life! I have put my trust in HIM and he continues to bless me with opportunities to bless others on my journey through this life. You can NEVER go wrong trusting GOD! HE will discipline you, grow you, shield you. JoAnn
  • Sheila Beaston on Proverbs 3
    The Lord woke me with a question in my heart, and a Bible verse, and when I read the verse in the Bible, God highlighted also the next verse below it, for there was my answer. God is truly good ... and He hears the cries of His children and He answers them and makes them to rest, and be at peace, and He comforts them. Thank you Jesus.

    Samoy....God bless you! I am with the other dude who replied. All I can add is go to the Lord, require of him what you shall do in all your matters and he will direct your path. Sometimes when I pray to the Lord it may be a day or two or week later that I wake up in the morning and I know exactly what to do. If you have trouble doing something for example loving others, etc. Talk to the Lord about it, let him know your struggles, he already knows but Cast your cares upon him because he cares for you and patiently wait. He will direct your paths brother!!!!!! Our God is an awesome God!! Stay strong Samoy!!!!

    Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don't, dear friend, resent GOD's discipline; don't sulk under his loving correction. It's the child he loves that GOD corrects; a father's delight is behind all this.

  • Stanjett - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    You posted this 16 hours ago. So I guess 16 hours for your ? What is your ?
  • Chris - in Reply on Proverbs 3
    Hi Lester, all of us on this Site are like you: asking questions, entering into discussion, learning, etc. So, answering a question will depend on who sees your question & if they are able to answer it. So, it shouldn't take too long (I think I answered yours fairly quickly yesterday), but sometimes people don't get an answer for a longer time or not at all. There are some of us 'regulars' here that try to help when we can & sometimes others offer comments also so you can get answers that you can consider & decide. Blessings.
