15 Verses From The Book of “PROVERBS” That Got Me Thinking

DISCLAIMER: This blog should have been posted on the 14th of this month (MARCH).

Hello,

Recently I haven’t be too active with this blog account, not that I should be giving an excuse to work for Christ, but lately I have been doing a lot of school related work and also trying to get closer to God everyday as I can. BUT KEEP PRAYING FOR ME AS WELL!!!.

At the start of this year I had started attending a Monday service Church, so after Monday classes I just go straight to Church, and it has really been a blessing to me ” I really thank God for this”. So I have been giving this pamphlet to work on, it’s about reading the chapters of Proverbs everyday and writing down my thoughts, since there are 31 days in March and 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs “looks perfect to me”. Reading through the book of Proverbs ‘to the 14th chapter’, I had come across a lot of verses that really got me thinking and being like “what that is so thought scattering”, and I really wanted to share 15 of these verses, and hopefully the Holy Spirit can even explain to you more and better.

Here are the 15 verses:

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath but righteousness delivers from death.

Proverbs 11:4

Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but righteousness will flourish like a green leaf.

Proverbs 11:28

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

Proverbs 12:15

Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who act faithfully are his delight.

Proverbs 12:22

Be assured, an evil person will not go unpunished, but the offspring of the righteous will be delivered.

Proverbs 11:21

One pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.

Proverbs 13:7

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.

Proverbs 13:11

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.

Proverbs 13:20

Whoever walks in uprightness fears the LORD, but he who is devious in his ways despises him.

Proverbs 14:2

Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.

Proverbs 14:4

Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge.

Proverbs 14:7

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.

Proverbs 14:12

The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.

Proverbs 14:15

One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.

Proverbs 14:16

The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death.

Proverbs 14:27

The numbers of Christians are Decreasing Around The World and the Numbers of atheists are raising. (Proves the BIBLE Right).

Hello,

Hope you are doing alright as you are reading this? If you are not, remind yourself that Jesus Christ is always available for you and you can always look forward to meeting him one day.

Hold On. Stay Strong. Have Faith. Trust God. Keep Believing. Never Lose  Hope. | Trust god, Fire quotes, Quotes about god

Straight to the point of the blog, NOT YET!!. Let me explain some things first, the first being you can’t stop being a Christian, who just suddenly stopped believing in God, rather you have never believed in God and you were never one of Christ’s Followers “Christians”. If I should explain better from a human perspective, which I would,’ you will say well your reason is relative and doesn’t speak for eveyone.

Me saying I just suddenly stopped believing in God who I had believed in all this while is like me saying I had never stepped into a school before after I had achieved the highest university degree. To make it simpler for you to understand, for you to have a thought of God not being real while you are still in your faith, means that you have doubts in your mind even though you pray to him which simply means you never fully believed, hence never even believed in God at all. Probably a lot to take in, but it’s alright, I wish I can emphasis more, but I believe the Holy Spirit in you will explain better to you. AMEN!

Secondly, what does the Bible say about such people, well the Bible has the answer to everything and certainly one for this. According to 1 John 2:18-19

Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.

My brothers and sisters in faith, with the things happening in the world right now, I know it can get overwhelming but keep the faith strong, Our Father in heaven has us covered, don’t decide to leave God now but please endure to the end. I really want us to be with God at the end of our journey. Don’t be surprised if you are seeing a lot of people who has decided to stop trusting Jesus Christ, we know about them as well. Matthew 24:12-13.

And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

This Bible verse is so powerful !!!. It’s like been given an exam paper and the same time been supplied with the answers. The exam paper is what Jesus said about what Jesus Christ told us to expect at the last days and the answer being “Endure still the end and you shall be saved”.

Let us keep pushing on, holding onto Christ, and offering Jesus Christ to everyone in all situations. Thanks for reading and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!!

When You Decide to Part Ways With God, You are Preparing For Destruction.

Hello,

I had this blog idea of how when we humans decides to part ways with God, the next thing that follows is always destruction, and how God in his abundant mercy still finds a way for us to exit out of such destruction.

Recently, my life has been good in accordance of the bible, but not until negative thoughts started coming in my head, telling me to move back to my old life, and saddest part of it, it got me. After I sinned, I felt really down and guilty of going against the will of God and his commandment. I had that thought through out the whole day, I wasn’t feeling the peace I had before I sinned. My inner soul really needed that peace and I just started to pour out my self back to God, stating what I have done and really seeking for His grace and mercy to be just as Jesus Christ ” The Sinless Man”. After that whole episode, I was feeling better and I began to experience God’s Love again. Has time went by, I decided to watch a movie, which was about a thug giving his life to Christ and waiting to be used by God. All of a sudden, I had a thought of how when a person decides to part ways with God, destruction comes in and I was like ” wow, maybe that’s what will happen in this movie”.

I began to think about such individuals in the bible who were related to this action, such as Judas Iscariot, Adam and Eve the first two man on earth. Judas Iscariot had everything in his presence which was “Jesus Christ”, but still wasn’t contended and decided to part ways with Jesus by betraying him, which resulted to the destruction of his soul through not being happy and decided to end his life. We all know the story of Adam and Eve as well, blessed individuals, had it all but still decided not to walk in God’s path, which led them to be thrown out of the Garden of Eden.

Image result for stay strong in christ

At the end of this thought, I also thought about how God in his abundant mercy still decide to make a way for us to come back to him even though we decided to leave him “WHAT A GOD WE SERVE”!!!. Judas Iscariot didn’t seek for that mercy, but Adam and Eve did in way which took them from the destruction path.

Jesus also said in Matthew 10:39

Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Although I had not completed the movie, I predicted destruction for the movie character if he decides to part ways with God after he gave his life to Christ but being impatience to be used by God. Lo and behold, the movie character ended up back in his thug life cycle and on a confrontation with another thug group, he was killed.

We all have the tendency of wanting to go back to our sinful lives, but stay strong in Christ because if you decide to part ways with God, destruction follows.

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT YOUR LIFE, SAYS JESUS CHRIST

Hello,

This will be another short blog, but the truth it carries can fill up the whole world. Allow me to beat around the bush a little before heading straight to the point.

In recent times things has become different, some in a good way and a lot in a way that doesn’t please God at all. All these things that doesn’t please God, has place a bounty on our heads for the devil to collect. These bounties include death, sickness, uncertainty, depression, anxiety, and so much negativities.

In a way the pressure is on for everyone and not just the Christians. A Christian will say ” why do you say that?, isn’t a Christian suppose to be immune to all these negativities?. Yes!!!, but as a Christian the eyes of the wicked is all set on you, which certainly puts you into the higher risk category of these negativities.

You saw during the high peak of the early stage of the coronavirus, when the whole world was not stable, and when everyone one were buying all the items in the store because they were anxious about what the next second of life holds. If it had turned out the way you didn’t want it too, which am sure most of us are align to, can you do anything about it, if Almighty God wants it to happen that way??. No!!!. If you are a Christian by all aspect of your life and you could relate to all these, can you please check your faith again and make sure you are right with God?.

For non-Christians who will say “but why are you against your own people?, it’s not that am against them, but I follow what Jesus Christ had said concerning this situation which can be found in the book of Matthew 6 verses 25-34

25: ” Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26: Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27: And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his life span of life? 28: And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29: yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30: But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31: Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘ What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32: For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33: But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 34: “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Do not be anxious, for Christ had made it known to us that all we need to do is continually seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things in our lives will be covered. Thanks for reading, and Keep the Faith Strong.

Why We Christians Shouldn’t Argue with Unbelievers or Non-Christians, but Just Focus on GOD {Proved with bible verses}

Hello,

To set the record straight, not arguing with unbelievers and non-Christians doesn’t mean we Christians have to be open to their theologies or accept a saviour they are offering us, which is different from Jesus Christ.

Nowadays a lot of individuals says that “all religions lead to God, we are just taking different paths to meet God”. Some also say “all religions are the same, we believe in say thing but just in different ways”. WOW!!!! The contradiction is unreal. Am sorry but not all religions are the same and not all religions lead to God. In any way or form a Bible-believing Christians have bought into this, make sure you take back the receipt and get your conscience back.

1st Timothy 2:2-6

2: for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in everyway. 3: This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our saviour, 4: who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth 5: For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6: who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.

John 14:6-7

6: Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7: If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

WHY SHOULDN’T WE AGRUE WITH unbelievers AND non-Christians AS CHRISTIANS?

YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH FACTS | Gopi Krishna's Blog

A natural human response to a situation of being confronted about one’s belief will generally result to arguing with the other party about it claims. I HAVE BEEN GUILTY OF THIS AS WELL!. But we shouldn’t. Why?, because Jesus Christ made it clear enough and more so Apostles Paul made it clear when writing letter to Titus, His true child in common faith, who was just a Christian like us in the book of Titus 3:9-11 that:

9: But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. 10: As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11: knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

In addition, although the context of the verse below is for workers approved by God, in a way we all are, so I had no choice but to include verses 14 to 19 of 2nd Timothy Chapter 2 which says:

14: Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 15: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 16: But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness, 17: and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18: who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some. 19: But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.

Hopefully this will persuade you to fully lay back in arguments about religions, what a bible verse means and so on, but always stand up for Christ Jesus in winning souls and standing up in situations that will lead to an unbeliever or non-Christian to being saved.

Thanks, and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!.

INTRODUCTION to Jesus Christ’s Parables about Kingdom of God (Heaven) in Relation to REPENTANCE, HEAVEN, and HELL.

Hello,

I have recently just finished reading the Gospel books of the bible, and currently looking forward to reading them for the second time. From the little have read for the second time, the more different in understanding it is from the first. I recently saw a text pic which in a summary says “the Holy Bible is different form every other books, because it gives different meaning of chapters every time you read it, hence making it alive”. I strongly agree with that clam.

What Kingdom Secrets Do the Parables of Jesus Teach Rabbis and Us? |  Messianic Bible

Why writing about this topic?

Am writing on this topic because of how thought challenging, real, and rich in knowledge all the parables of the Jesus Christ are. On my first time reading the record books of Jesus in the bible, I was really amazed on how real I could link all what Jesus Christ talked and preached about to my life situations and the current status of the world right now. All this led me to the conclusion that for a person to be so accurate about all the current situation of the world now in 2021, which he had talked about 2000 years ago, he had to have be there and seen it all, hence has tips of living right for those who hasn’t. The bible even proves this in John 1: 1-5

1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2: He was in the beginning with God. 3: All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4: In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5: The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Jesus Christ was the Word. The book of John makes it clear that Jesus had been from the beginning with God. For unbelievers Jesus is just a man who came along the timeline of human existence and claims to be God, But for us Christians Jesus is God and had been before the whole creation.

What are parables?

Parables are secrets to the Kingdom of God, and can only be understood by people who have received Jesus Christ because he has the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Prove???

Matthew 13:10-16

10: Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11: And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the Kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12: For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13: This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14: Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:

” ‘ ” You will indeed hear but never understand and you will indeed see but never perceive.” 15: For this people’s heart grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’ 16: But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. 17: For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear.

More of these will be found in the book of Mark 4:12 and the book of Luke 7:21.

I will be Explaining all the parables Jesus Christ preached about in relation to Heaven, Hell and Repentance in coming weeks and blogs. Stay turn and remain blessed.

Thanks, and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG.

Shortest Reason on why you should always Trust JESUS CHRIST no Matter what, with Support of Bible Verses!!! (Must read for Christians)

Hello,

To make this really short, the reason why you should always trust Jesus no matter what is because Jesus Christ talked and preached about our lives situations and the current status of the world right now, which are accurate in a way or various ways and for a person to be so accurate about all the current situation of the world now in 2021, which he had talked about 2000 years ago, he had to have be there and seen it all, hence has tips of living right for those who hasn’t,” like you and certainly me”. The bible even proves this in John 1: 1-5

1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2: He was in the beginning with God. 3: All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4: In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5: The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Dear Lukewarm Christians, GOD Puts You on a Higher Standard for Punishment (Please read, before you go deeper into the year!!!!)

What To Know About Cold, Warm & Hot Traffic |
CHRISTIAN-O-METER

Hello,

This will probably be the best blog I have decided to write yet, because I have a lot of experience about being a lukewarm Christian, even till today (just two days till the end of the year). Let me put it this way that I really struggle with my Christian belief in a lot of aspects, since a lot of my daily activities that include going to school and boarding the train involves seeing or coming in contact with a lot of things that doesn’t glorify God and certainly doesn’t help strengthen my life as a born again Christian. ” But I strive to be perfect everyday like my Father is perfect in heaven” and if I dwell too much in what I see every day, I will be in a very bad place.

One dictionary definition for lukewarm is “showing little enthusiasm”, which led me to believe that an average meaning for lukewarm Christian will be “showing little enthusiasm for being Christ-like”. Still no cause of alarm for you?. Dictionary also state other similar words for lukewarm as half-hearted, laid-back, unmoved, couldn’t care less, unresponsive, uninterested, and so on. To make a better meaning for lukewarm Christian, just include Christian at the end of each words.

Do the bible talk about lukewarm Christians or it is just a made up word? Yes it certainly did.

In the Revelation 3:16, no coincidence with everyone’s favourite bible verse ‘John 3:16’. But starting from verse 15 down to 17, according to the English standard version.

15: I know your works, you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! 16: so, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17: For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realising that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked.

Is it just me, but “wow”. If you read the whole chapter, you will recognise instantly that it is Jesus Christ speaking.

You see the lukewarm Christian, he is not ice cold and not away from God, at the same time he is not red, hot on fire for God, he is just lukewarm

OFF THE KIRB MINITRIES

God talked about lukewarm Christians by identifying some of their attributes and stating the punishment in ISAIAH 29:13-14

13: And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honour me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men, 14: therefore, behold I will again do wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder, and the wisdom of their discerning men shall be hidden”.

And Jesus Christ still referred to the same verse in the old testament in his preaching, in the book of MATTHEW 15:7-9

7: You hypocrites! well did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said: 8: “This people honour me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 9: In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men!”.

Jesus didn’t stop there though. One question for you, what do Jesus like speaking in? PARABLES!!!!!. you are right. Since God had explained the attributes and punishments for lukewarm Christians to Prophet Isaiah, Jesus also explained the severity of the lukewarm Christian punishment to his disciples in LUKE 12:41-48

41: Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us of for all? 42: And he said, “who is the faithful and wise manager, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? 43: Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 44: Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. 45: But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming’, and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink to get drunk, 46: the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces and put him with the unfaithful. 47: And the servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating. 48: But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.

If you are still a lukewarm Christian, PLEASE change and become Hot for Jesus Christ. As a Christian, you have known Christ and you can’t back away from it now, but the real question is “Are you going to be hot or cold for Christ in 2021”?. “I will be HOT”.

5 Things I Remind Myself as a Christian, Whenever I Feel Left Out by People Around Me

Hello,

I know life is always tough for us Christians in preventing various forms of temptation and also to make sure we stay holy as possible because our whole secular world pushes things that are not enabling us to achieve ours goals as Christians, but we should always know that our reward will be greater in heaven if we will endure to the end and cancel out all forms of temptations or people whose main aim will be to prevent you from being a soldier for Christ or prevent people to reach you. Such act prevents people from hearing what we want to tell them which is the “Gospel”, or getting what we have to offer which is “Christ”.

In relation to my experiences, here are some things I reminded myself as a Christian who was getting overwhelmed by worldly activities, comments, and people (unbelievers).

1. God has everything good in his possession and for me to remain good and get everything good, i must stay in God’s presence no matter what.

2. People can look all nice and cool to other on surface, but up there, I don’t know what is going on.

3. If I decide to do the things of the world and stay away from my Christian faith, what do the world offer that i haven’t had before or can what it tend to offer last forever?.

4. If I decide to do what others are doing that doesn’t please God, what am I going to do next after that activity or act that will cancel out the guilt in my heart apart from running back to God? NOTHING.

5. people tend to act like they are really close to each other, but the reality is that people are so far apart than they ever wished for or can’t always be present for each other, and here is why. Your mind always remain to yourself, you act according to what you negotiated with your mind, when you sleep it’s always you and yourself out there. Jesus Christ is always present and can be present in your mind always as well.
