Through The Proverbs 23rd August 2017

Through the Proverbs
Old Testament
Sin and Destruction Always Want More - (Proverbs 27:20)

Daily Wisdom
Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.

Reading Notes
This passage speaks of the desire of the fallen human heart, a heart which the Bible tells us is dead in trespasses and sins. Moreover, these passages give us a glimpse into the real ending for those who lust after the things of this world and deny a relationship with God the Father, by denying a relationship with Jesus. This is a desire we all battle. However, as followers of Christ, we rely not on ourselves, but on the Holy Spirit who indwells us. We live in a world at enmity against God. A world which tells us that to have more, to be more, to want more is good and natural. However, the Bible tells us the way of the world is sin and death because it stems from a heart at enmity with God. And while on a social or intellectual level, we all agree that greed is not good and people should take care of our environment, those in need and the next generation. The truth of the matter is we all want more for ourselves. Our sin nature is like a deadly virus, it always wants to grow and spread as it consumes more and more.

And like a deadly virus our sin nature will never say, "enough." In addition, our sin nature, which is at enmity with God, will always cause us to justify why it's ok to desire what we know is wrong. Our fallen nature will cause us to justify more sin and more rebellion against God. Individually, we all want more for ourselves, more money, more status and generally more of all the things the world tells us we should have. But dear believer, it's important for us to understand that our desire for more of the world, is our sin nature. And like Hell, it's never full, it always wants more and like a deadly virus, it will never stop until it has consumed its host. And it starts by craving more of the things of this world, things which draw us away from God, things that will tie us to this world and never let go. Things which will marry us to a world which is perishing and passing away, while blinding us to the things of God and His direction in our lives. And when this happens, we place ourselves on the path of destruction, because our sin nature will never be satisfied until it has destroyed us completely.

Why We're Here
Our goal is to help Christians grow in their faith and Bible knowledge while helping them to explore and study the meaning of scripture as it relates to the entire Bible taking into context the meaning of the surrounding chapter, book and verses as well as the historical and culture times of the writer, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
]1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
