“Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts, they harbor deceit. Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. The malice may be concealed by deception, but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.” – Proverbs 26:24-28
Can you believe it? The Lord brought us into a new decade. I am blessed and thankful to God for allowing me to live until now. Having time to focus on my spiritual journey is crucial for my soul’s salvation ensuring my walk with the Lord is pleasing the Lord.
I hope you are enjoying my 2020 blog series “The Snake and Tainted Tongues.” In Genesis 3:4, it reads, and the serpent said unto the woman “Ye shall not surely die.” Hmmm… Deception, there is no other word for the snake’s objective to get Adam and Eve to sin against God. You should not surely die is referring to a spiritual death, and that is exactly what Adam and Eve earned, in addition to separation from God, evicted from their home and eventually a physical death.
“Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?” –James 3:11
In the meantime, I highly recommend listening to Minister Felton D. Woods’ sermon title “The Deceptive Fig Tree”; relating to human deceptiveness. Sermon can be heard on Facebook: fb.me//SermonsofFeltonDWoods.
