Let us not judge another man's servant, because God is able to make them stand who serve him.
I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; psalms78:2-3 and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Proverbs1:5
Hebrew scholars and Rabbis recognized that in a text of scripture there were 1) Peshat, the literal, direct meaning; 2) Remez, an allegorical significance; a hint of something deeper; 3) Derash, or practical application; and 4) Sod, the mystical or hidden meaning. And there is much in the meanings of names.
The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, the oracle. The man declares to Ithiel, to Ithiel and Ucal: Surely I am more stupid than any man, And I do not have the understanding of a man. Neither have I learned wisdom, Nor do I have the knowledge of the Holy One. Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name or His son’s name? Surely you know! Prov. 30
This proverb is not neccessarily the words of Solomon, but of Agur, Gathered son of Jakeh, Blameless, to Ithiel, God is with us and Ucal, Consumed. When we come as a little child, and the Lord is pleased to reveal his son to us, the most intelligent thing we can say is; I know this, that I know nothing. When Paul was speaking to the galations, he noted how committed He had been to the scriptures and the law,and said; But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood. Christ was revealed IN Paul,and what is this mystery? Christ in us the hope of Glory. And when Saul was struck blind, he said, who are you Lord? Ananias, grace, touched him,and He became Paul,Small.
Saints, if God be for us who can be against us. Though we may suffer for a time yet, Cyrus is coming. Saints when I speak of Cyrus and the restoration of the captivity of Judah, it is to stir you up, because your redemption draws nigh.When i speak of the sons of Tamar and Zerah and Pharez, the house of David, it is because i want you to know we are not appointed unto wrath.Indeed we are the second lampstand/candlestick of Rev 11:4,and that also takes going to scripture to understand.Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, and as Agur said; Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. As Paul said; Let God be true and every man a liar. Agur also said; Give me neither poverty nor riches— Feed me with the food allotted to me; Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God. Do not malign a servant to his master,
Lest he curse you, and you be found guilty. May we understand God gives Hidden manna, and a new name to some,and He gives something else to others. It is not about us. Let us not judge another mans servant, because God isable to make them stand who serve him.
As Agur also said; The leech has two daughters—Give and Give! There are three things that are never satisfied, Four never say, “Enough!”:The grave, The barren womb, The earth that is not satisfied with water— And the fire never says, “Enough!”
I have a friend right now who moved to another city and He tells me he is having a time finding a church that teaches grace and truth. i tell him, find one that is close and supply what is needed.i have many friends that have entered into relationships only to find ; the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;
But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell. Lest you ponder her path of life—
Her ways are unstable; You do not know them. Many men and women have entered relationships, and ministries only to find they were seduced, and it was their covering that was wanted,and some were blinded and found themselves working for the enemy until they got their covering back. As Solomon said; Remove your way far from her,
And do not go near the door of her house, Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one; Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner; And you mourn at last, When your flesh and your body are consumed, And say: “How I have hated instruction, And my heart despised correction!
I have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined my ear to those who instructed me!
A man I dearly love recently was seduced, and suffered great loss.The Lord gave him a dream. he caught a fish and was proudly showing it off, but noticed a tuft of hair where its dorsal fin was.As he was showing it, he looked down and it had turned into a cat. It scratched him and then ran off, only to return purring and rubbing against his legs when it wanted more from him. Saints, there is a Jezebel prophetess, and she does not believe the word of God nor can she ; This is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, And says, “I have done no wickedness. Her children with her will enter into great tribulation
We can learn a lot from the captivity of Judah, especially in America; Thus you shall say to them: “The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens. For the shepherds have become dull-hearted, And have not sought the LORD; Therefore they shall not prosper, And all their flocks shall be scattered. Don't mock what you don't understand, Get understanding. In all your getting, get understanding. Your source is God's word. How Paul labored for the church until Christ was formed in her. Grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus,who died for us to sanctify a special people for himself.
To the bride. You desire nothing on this earth, be sure you have done all you can for the kingdom and pray pray pray. To the young ones. Flee your youthful desires ( I am not talking about schooling or jobs or dreams) and remember: What God has for us is better than can be described with words,and many of our brothers and sisters are dying for their faith right now.
