'Luke 13:23“Lord,” someone asked Him, “will only a few people be saved?” Jesus answered, 24“Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. 25 After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, ‘Lord, open the door for us.’ But he will reply, ‘I do not know where you are from.’… We are forewarned that life is filled with 'choices', either for evil, or, for God. CHOOSE WISELY. Amen. Amen.
My Beloved Friends. Thank you so much for continuing to visit with me and Jesus, as we conclude Chapter 3 of the Proverbs. Again, I do pray that this series has been helpful to you, and that you now see how important and enjoyable studying the Word of God is, and beneficial to you, being in His Presence. Amen. Amen.
Therefore, concluding our Posts, Series 7A-E, from June 24, 27; July 1, 4, 8, 2018, and now our final post 7F, in this series, today, July 11, 2018. Now let us see what is 'concisely written' by Matthew Henry, on Proverbs Chapter 3. We will use the same 'outline' and sections correspondingly.
For Proverbs Chapter 3, I have, with your permission, been showing you how I personally dig into the Holy Bible. Then, going forward, if you so choose, you may study the rest of Proverbs and other sections of God's Word in this manner.
Please, please, please, remember that we are not in a 'horse-race' when we are in His Presence, in His Word. We must set aside 'time' for the most important 'appointment' of our day.
So, as I have shown you, I take each segment of the 'Outline', re-read the passages, and then, read the respective commentary, being attentive to the Holy Spirit, enlightening my mind, further.
Final Series Post 7, Chapter 3F, Wednesday, July 11, 2018
The wicked and the upright. (27-35) [We all have to make 'choices' throughout our lives. Joshua 24:15]
 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. [For more on this topic, see Psalm 73]
 For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.
 The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.
Are you motivated to 'make the choice' to be 'the wicked', or, 'the upright', now clearly knowing the end before the beginning? SMQ
Commentary on Proverbs 3:27-35(Read Proverbs 3:27-35 above)
Our business, as 'believers and followers of Jesus Christ', is to 'make the choice' 'in our wills' to observe the precepts of Christ, and to copy his example; to do justice, to love mercy, and to beware of covetousness; to be ready for every good work, avoiding needless strife and contention, and bearing evils, if possible, rather than seeking redress by law. It will be found there is little got by striving.
Let us not envy prosperous oppressors; far be it from the disciples of Christ to choose any of their ways.
These truths may be despised by the covetous and luxurious, but everlasting contempt will be the portion of such scorners, while Divine favour is shown to the humble believer. [Psalm 73]
My Beloved Friends, it is in studying the Word, in this manner, that we do not go off on 'rabbit trails' of interpretations of our own. We do have to watch to be sure we are staying with what is written in the Word, as the ultimate authority. The Holy Spirit will cause you to have 'doubts' and 'dis-comfort' when you are seriously, prayerfully, studying something that is not 'true'. So, be aware of this way He reveals His Presence with you at any time. And when such happens, ask, 'Holy Spirit, is this 'true'? Oh, He will answer you in your spirit, through 'a quiet still voice'. [1 Kings 19:12] Then, discard such 'revealed error in information'. You see, there is absolutely no one who has it all right. Except, of course, the Holy Spirit. So, prayerfully, study, and you will not go wrong. Enjoy your time in the presence of the Lord, always. Amen. Amen.
Are you understanding, getting more 'illumination' with the aid of the Holy Spirit? I pray that you are, for the Holy Spirit will 'illuminate' the Word so that you understand it. When He sees you are serious; that He is first and foremost in your life; and that you truly want to hear to trust and to obey what is heard; then, there is no end to what He wants to, and will reveal to you. [John 14:26]
Please remember now. We shall continue in this manner on the remainder of the posts for the Book of the Proverbs. I do pray that this series will help you to see how important and enjoyable studying the Word of God is, and beneficial to you, being in His Presence. Amen. Amen.
