Matthew 7:13-21 New King James Version (NKJV)The Narrow Way13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.14 [a]Because narrow is the gate and [b]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits.Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
I Never Knew You21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. This, my friends is the 'wisdom' from Jesus. Amen. Amen.
Good Morning, my Beloved Friends. Thank you for coming, for returning. May I have your attention?
For Proverbs Chapter 3, during our Sunday/Wednesday Series Posts from June 24, 2018 to July 11, 2018, we learned the way Mrs. Quarles digs into the Holy Bible Scriptures.
Now continuing from our study in Proverbs, with Chapter 4, on July 15, 2018; Chapter 5, July 18-22, 2018, Chapter 6, July 25, 2018; Proverbs Chapter 7, July 29, 2018. We started Proverbs Chapter 8, August 1, 2018 with our first two posts. Now, let us continue in Proverbs Chapter 8 in a very 'SPECIAL WAY' with another post, today. August 1, 2018; August 5, 2018; August 8, 2018 -
Chapter 8, A Concise Outline for your personal studies, and a link for you to read the Holy Scriptures for yourselves. As with Chapters 4,5,6, 7; there will be notes from Commentary posted for this chapter as well. But, more. There will be notes and cross biblical references for you to really dig into the Chapter, and others you may desire to study as deeply. This set of posts for Chapter 8 shall post in two parts from Wednesday, August 1, 2018 through Sunday, August 12, 2018 on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Let's get started! Proverbs Chapter 8, A Concise Outline for your personal studies, and a link for you to read the Holy Scriptures for yourselves. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Our Outline and Scripture Reading
Christ, as Wisdom, calls to the sons of men. (1-11) The nature and riches of Wisdom. (12-21) Christ one with the Father, in the creation of the world, and rejoicing in his work for the salvation of man. (22-31) Exhortations to hear Christ's word. (32-36)
Now, remember, we are 'feasting' on more. As I was preparing this post, I was lead to treat it with 'special care'. Therefore, we will take a few posts for this precise Chapter 8. May you be most blessed in slowing down to truly 'taste and see that the Lord is good'. [Psalm 34:8].
22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;
31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
This is - the 'biography' of the Lord, Jesus Christ!
[Notes from NKJV, for verses 30, 31, provide invaluable insight on God's skill from creation of the universe to the creation of mankind. As a master craftsman. With wisdom's skill, God created the universe. Therefore, a proper study of the universe is a progressive study of God's wisdom. Her greatest joy comes in the finest of the work of God - the sons of men - that is, humankind. [Study also, Isaiah 64:8; Jeremiah 18; 'potter and clay'; 'abiding branches on the Vine, found at John 14:1-15:11] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Herein lies the answer to the 'question' - 'Did Jesus Co-Exist with God the Father?' Said another way, John 1:1-5, to wit:
The Word Became Flesh 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
And, even further back, at Genesis 1:1, to wit:
The Beginning, '1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.' [[John 17:5; 1 John 1:1; Revelation 19:13]
In the Holy Scriptures, the word for God in this section is 'elohim'. I strongly encourage you to do your very own research of - 'Elohim', to understand the very nature of - 'the triune God'. Otherwise, in the 'Topics Room' there are numerous posts on the 'Characteristics of God'; of Jesus, that will better inform you, as well.
Comments - Verses 22-31 The Son of God declares himself to have been engaged in the creation of the world. How able, how fit is the Son of God to be the Saviour of the world, who was the Creator of it! The Son of God was ordained, before the world, to that great work. Does he delight in saving wretched sinners, and shall not we delight in his salvation?
Our final post for Chapter 8, shall post on August 12, 2018. It is my sincere hope and prayer, that you are understanding why, to really get to know Our God, time on our part is essential. I do not know about you, but I want to be closer and closer to Him, each and every hour, minute, second of these days. I pray that you are seeing the benefit of this same heart's desire. Oh, the riches of His glory!! Amen. Amen.
