  • Mickey for verse 23
    People may be awakening but many are falling away too. Grab onto God and hold fast to your faith. It's called the great falling away.
  • Who are the gentiles and Samaritans that Jesus instructs his disciples not to go near? and why does he instruct them to not go near them? When he himself spoke to a Samaritan woman and said if you know who this was, you would ask for living water?
  • Guiding and keeping our hearts with all diligence is very critical these days. Our heart can deceives and leads in the wrong way. So we have to read and apply the word of God and ask Him to guide us in all our ways. The word further tells us that the heart of men is desperately wicked. So if out of our hearts are the issues of life that means we have protect it.

    Yes, I think so, too. I'm a very exact person detailed and also caring and it's nice to know that God likes me - or my doings. I love people, I do paintings, I like to study and teach. Sometimes I notice God is there with me.

    How wonderful is this chapter? How concise it is leaving nothing to doubt about the believer's response to evil and entering into or near to evil. Thank you Lord for these words.

    "Keep thy heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23 Whenever the Lord confronts those who love Him, or those who opposed Him, He never speaks in terms of "if" or "how possibly" they should keep God's commandments, but rebukes them for their empty outward show and misrepresenting religion, and for making their own thoughts more important traditions than doing what God commands and tells plainly how it is the inner man of the heart that God sees and knows, out of which all our doings are either accepted or rejected of Him. Always, and in every case, it is a matter of the heart either being good and honest and working out a course in life according to the fear of God or, a hardened and selfish unclean heart that only seeks the praise of men and lives entirely by outward appearance. Out of the abundance of the heart the manner of life, and the true nature of the man. How many times does the Spirit say to us, My son, Let thine heart keep my commandments, and LIVE! Our spirit directs our eyes and ears, and presides over every matter of our hearts. By these are our actions performed and the intentions of our heart weighed, showing what kind we are to God.

    Hosea 4.6
    My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. And I confess that most of the time I've been struggling to understand this verse. Which Knowledge the prophet is talking about? So, when reading the scriptures we must ask the Holy Spirit to help us to understand what God wants to say with that portion of Scripture, to avoid self interpretation and heresy. Very often we will need to compar

    The H.G. is the Granson, thats y Jesus refers to the H.G. as the Promise meaning mutiplication of himself by his seed. NO WAY AROUND IT, God has to be multiplied, the very fact that we have a Father and a Son begs the question of a Granson BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY an ISRAEL OF GOD MEANING THE MULTIPLICATION OF VERY GOD INHUMANITY Via that good seed th WORD,DAVIDS KINGDOM WAS FATHER SON AND GRANSON,GBU
