The Day is coming…..!

August 30, 2009

“For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,

And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts,
“ That will leave them neither root nor branch.

But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet

On the day that I do this,
Says the LORD of hosts.

“ Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With the statutes and judgments.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

Giving to the rich…

March 23, 2009

Oppressing the poor to enrich oneself,
    and giving to the rich—both lead only to poverty.

       but he will punish anyone who plans evil.

    There is a time for everything!

    March 19, 2009

       There is a time for everything,
           and everything on earth has its special season.
       There is a time to be born
           and a time to die. 
       There is a time to plant
           and a time to pull up plants.
       There is a time to kill
           and a time to heal.
       There is a time to destroy
           and a time to build.
       There is a time to cry
           and a time to laugh. 
       There is a time to be sad
           and a time to dance.
       There is a time to throw away stones
           and a time to gather them.
       There is a time to hug
           and a time not to hug.
       There is a time to look for something
           and a time to stop looking for it. 
       There is a time to keep things
           and a time to throw things away.
       There is a time to tear apart
           and a time to sew together.
       There is a time to be silent
           and a time to speak.
       There is a time to love
           and a time to hate.
       There is a time for war
           and a time for peace

    Fear God the creator of all things…

    March 13, 2009

    But regarding anything beyond this, dear friend, go easy. There’s no end to the publishing of books, and constant study wears you out so you’re no good for anything else. The last and final word is this:
       Fear God.
       Do what he tells you.

    And that’s it. Eventually God will bring everything that we do out into the open and judge it according to its hidden intent, whether it’s good or evil.

                                                                  King Solomon

    Strange Women

    March 5, 2009

    Proverbs 5

    Avoid Seduction

     1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
        listen closely to my understanding

        2 so that [you] may maintain discretion
        and your lips safeguard knowledge.

        3 Though the lips of the forbidden woman drip honey
        and her words are  smoother than oil,

        4 in the end she’s as bitter as wormwood 
        and as sharp as a double-edged sword.

        5 Her feet go down to death;
        her steps head straight for Sheol.

        6 She doesn’t consider the path of life;
        she doesn’t know that her ways are unstable.

        7 So now, [my] sons, listen to me,
        and don’t turn away from the words of my mouth.

        8 Keep your way far from her.
        Don’t go near the door of her house.

        9 Otherwise, you will give up your vitality to others
        and your years to someone cruel;

        10 strangers will drain your resources,
        and your earnings will end up in a foreigner’s house.

        11 At the end of your life, you will lament
        when your physical body has been consumed,

        12 and you will say, “How I hated discipline,
        and how my heart despised correction.

        13 I didn’t obey my teachers
        or listen closely  to my mentors.

        14 I was on the verge of complete ruin
        before the entire community.”

       

    Enjoy Marriage

     15 Drink water from your own cistern,
        water flowing from your own well.

        16 Should your springs flow in the streets,
        streams of water in the public squares?

        17 They should be for you alone
        and not for you [to share] with strangers.

        18 Let your fountain be blessed,
        and take pleasure in the wife of your youth.

        19 A loving doe, a graceful fawn—
        let her breasts always satisfy you; 
        be lost in her love forever.

        20 Why, my son, would you be infatuated
        with a forbidden woman
        or embrace the breast of a stranger?

        21 For a man’s ways are before the LORD‘s eyes, 
        and He considers all his paths.

        22 A wicked man’s iniquities entrap him; 
        he is entangled in the ropes of his own sin.

        23 He will die because there is no instruction, 
        and be lost because of his great stupidity

           King Solomon
