2 Timothy 3:1-5
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty,
3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without
5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away!
(Hatred, wars, rape, incest, violence, greed, love of money,
foul language, selfishness, divorce, homosexuality,
group sex, wife swapping, swinging, orgies,incest,
fornication, adultery, stealing, murder, lying,
mugging, kidnapping, prostitution, trafficking in
child slavery, worshipping “the son” only
instead of “the Father”, Christians celebrating pagan
holidays, Christians wearing pagan idols,
child abuse, parent abuse, grand-parent abuse,
spiritism, astrology, witchcraft, drug-abuse,
drunkeness, slander, haughtiness, arrogance,
lovers of pleasure, disobedient to parents,
disobedient to authority, ungrateful, unthankful,
not open to any agreement, puffed up with pride,
false witnesses, no self-control, fierce, headstrong,
and just plain mean.)
All the ABOVE brings people down and it starts with what’s in their minds,
it takes roots and it festers and soon the mind becomes a battlefield and leads
to internal spiritual warfare, the wrestle between doing good and bad,
these are the schemes and machinations of the Devil aka Satan aka Lucifer,
the fallen angel!
Time is short and running out for him, so he and his minions manipulates and
deceives mankind in every which way to deter them from worshipping
YAHWEH our God and YESHUA, our Messiah
16 For where jealousy and contentiousness are, there disorder and every vile thing are.
“Do not boast, lie or murmur sweet words to cover up the ugly truth in thine hearts
of arrogance, selfishness and bitter jealousy which is venom to thy souls”
It’s earthly and it’s the attitude of Satan, the father of all lies and deceit;
so purify yourselves with the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God Yahweh
so that you may stand blameless when our Messiah Yeshua comes back to reclaim
his rightful throne to rule.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do His commandments:
His praise endureth for ever.

Proverbs 1 to 10 = Counsel for Young Men
♣ ♥ ♣
“Wise Up!” … Worship is the first step to wisdom.
*The fear of Jehovah/Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge.
Wisdom and discipline are what mere fools have despised.*
– Proverbs 1:7
“Walk Straight!” … The straight and narrow has the lowest accident rate.
*The purpose is that you may walk in the way of good people
and that the paths of the righteous ones you may keep.*
– Proverbs 2:20
“Directions” … Ask Almighty God Jehovah/Yahweh about everything;
He knows every road.
*In all your ways take notice of Him, and He Himself will make your paths straight.*
– Proverbs 3:6
“Watch Your Step!” … Every step molds your character; Step Well.
*Smooth out the course of your foot, and may all your own ways be firmly established.*
– Proverbs 4:26
“Listen” … to the voices of the sages and walk on straight paths set
by Lord God Almighty Jehovah/Yahweh from heavens above.
*For the ways of man are in front of the eyes of Jehovah, and He is contemplating all his tracks.*
Proverbs : 5:21
“Jehovah/Yahweh God’s Black List”
… pride, lies, murder, deceit, mischief, betrayal, discord.
There are six things that Jehovah does hate;
yes, seven are things detestable to his soul:
Lofty eyes, a false tongue, and hands that are shedding innocent blood,
a heart fabricating hurtful schemes, feet that are in a hurry to run to badness,
a false witness that launches forth lies,
and anyone sending forth contentions among brothers.*
– Proverbs 6: 16-19
“A Bad Woman” – read carefully and heed the warnings about
conniving loose immoral women.
*That is why I have come out to meet you, to look for your face, that I may find you.
With coverlets I have bedecked my divan, with many-colored things, linen of Egypt.
I have besprinkled my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.
Do come, let us drink our fill of love until the morning;
do let us enjoy each other with love expressions.
For the husband is not in his house; he has gone traveling on a way of some distance.
A bag of money he has taken in his hand.
On the day of the full moon he will come to his house.”
She has misled him by the abundance of her persuasiveness.
By the smoothness of her lips she seduces him.
All of a sudden he is going after her, like a bull that comes even to the slaughter,
and just as if fettered for the discipline of a foolish man,
until an arrow cleaves open his liver, just as a bird hastens into the trap,
and he has not known that it involves his very soul.
And now, O sons, listen to me and pay attention to the sayings of my mouth.
May your heart not turn aside to her ways.
Do not wander into her roadways.
For many are the ones she has caused to fall down slain,
and all those being killed by her are numerous.
The ways to She´ol her house is; they are descending to the interior rooms of death.*
Proverbs : 7:15-27
“Riches” … Rubies of wisdom commands the highest price on the market of character values.
*For wisdom is better than corals, and all other delights themselves
cannot be made equal to it.*
– Proverbs 8:11
“More Fun” … Nothing you ought NOT to do is ever more fun. Wait till you see what results.
*“Stolen waters themselves are sweet, and bread [eaten] in secrecy—it is pleasant.”
But he has not come to know that those impotent in death are there,
that those called in by her are in the low places of She´ol.*
– Proverbs 9:17-18
“Wanted! Silence” … wordy men seldom are wise men.
*In the abundance of words there does not fail to be transgression,
but the one keeping his lips in check is acting discreetly.*
– Proverbs 10:19

PROVERBS CHAPTER 8
The Discourse of Wisdom
1 Does not wisdom call out?
Does not understanding raise her voice?
2 On the heights along the way,
where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3 beside the gates leading into the city,
at the entrances, she cries aloud:
4 “To you, O men, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
5 You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, gain understanding.
6 Listen, for I have worthy things to say;
I open my lips to speak what is right.
7 My mouth speaks what is true,
for my lips detest wickedness.
8 All the words of my mouth are just;
none of them is crooked or perverse.
9 To the discerning all of them are right;
they are faultless to those who have knowledge.
10 Choose my instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
I possess knowledge and discretion.
13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
I have understanding and power.
15 By me kings reign
and rulers make laws that are just;
16 by me princes govern,
and all nobles who rule on earth.
17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me find me.
18 With me are riches and honor,
enduring wealth and prosperity.
19 My fruit is better than fine gold;
what I yield surpasses choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
along the paths of justice,
21 bestowing wealth on those who love me
and making their treasuries full.
The Eternity of Wisdom
22 “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
23 I was appointed from eternity,
from the beginning, before the world began.
24 When there were no oceans, I was given birth,
when there were no springs abounding with water;
25 before the mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
26 before he made the earth or its fields
or any of the dust of the world.
27 I was there when he set the heavens in place,
when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28 when he established the clouds above
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29 when he gave the sea its boundary
so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30 Then I was the craftsman at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
31 rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind.
The Blessings of Wisdom
32 “Now then, my sons, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not ignore it.
34 Blessed is the man who listens to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
35 For whoever finds me finds life
and receives favor from the LORD.
36 But whoever fails to find me harms himself;
all who hate me love death.”

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle Rules the World
What an important job a mother has!
The mothers of the next generation are the ones who are molding the future.
Motherhood is just about the greatest calling in the world.
Of course, taking care of a baby may not always seem very important,
but don’t ever minimize it.
Who knows what an impact that child may have on the lives of many others one day?
the strength of Samson,
the wisdom of Solomon,
the patience of Job,
the faith of Abraham,
the insight of Daniel,
and the courage and administrative ability of David.
It also takes the love of God,
that’s for sure!
What a job!
The thing that makes a mother so wonderful is her
self-sacrificial spirit that is willing to sacrifice
her time and strength and even her own health,
if necessary, for the sake of that child.
Any woman can have a baby,
but it takes a real mother to learn how to
“train up a child in the way he should go”
There may be scars
But hope still for stars
For stars shineth on and on
So, you gotta keep on keeping on
No matter how life’s curve balls hits
Have faith in God and hope still sits
Hard times, troubled times, saddens the soul
Time is timeless, move forward, purge the old
Every cycle of life has a beginning and an end
Look for rainbows after a storm for its God-send
Walk through life at your own even pace
Adopt positive attitude, keep a smiling face
Signs are posted at every junction and all crossroads
Be alert, be aware and take heed the wisdom it unloads
At every juncture and every fork pray for discretion
To a God who giveth sagaciousness on every question
In all lives a little rain must fall before the sun shines
Defines character, perspectives change, horizon realigns
Accept challenges, overcome obstacles, create some goals
With much effort and tenacity, attainment fulfills our souls
Aboard the ship of life fear not of adverse stormy waves
Persevere and endure on for whom God loves God saves
Every star though minute from gaze could be a raging sun
Immerse clarity in your mind, blast on, life’s an awesome run
