Proverbs 2751 – 3000

English – French

“And more than that, the preacher was wise; he still taught the people knowledge. Yes, he listened, and looked, and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find out pleasing words; and words of truth written by the upright. The words of the wise are like goads; yes, their collected words are like nails driven home; they are given from one Shepherd” (Ecclesiastes 12:9-11 MKJV).

In the middle of the night of April 15-16 of 2007, it was given me to write proverbs. Like a tap of water turned on, they came, one after the other, 78 in all. Then, as fast as they began, they ended, like a tap turned off. There was no premeditation, no expectation and when the end came, there was nothing I could do to continue. They were just there.

Since then the Lord has given me more, when I am quiet, in His way, and when He wills.

The principles of life have many manifestations, each of which can be expressed as a proverb. A proverb can appear simple on the surface, stating the obvious, as even to give the impression that a simpleton speaks. As one contemplates the words and seeks a deeper meaning, however, he or she can be rewarded with counsel and understanding that serve well in many applications of life, should God give to that one.

No exceptions. All who ask, receive.

3000. Observe both the goodness and severity of the Lord God. He creates both Heaven and earth and all things therein. He creates both good and evil, light and darkness, and day and night. He assigns both Michael the archangel warrior and Satan the destroyer to their duties, contrary to one another. He has mercy on whom He will have mercy, and whom He will, He hardens.

Jesus Christ He calls His Servant; Moses He calls His servant; Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, He calls His servant; Cyrus, King of Persia, He calls His servant. All are His. He IS Jesus Christ. He IS Yeshua HaMashiach. He always Was, Always Is, and Always Will Be. He IS Lord of All and in All. He is the First and the Last. He comes and He comes again.
