Proverbs in Our Daily Lives

     Proverbs 1:10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

     Proverbs 1:11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

     “In early March of 2016, the bodies of eight electrical company employees and three farmers were found hacked-up and bullet-riddled near a desolate field in El Salvador’s San Juan Opico municipality.

     The wanton force involved – the killers used machetes and machine guns – bore all the hallmarks of MS-13, or Mara Salavtrucha, the uber-violent street gang that started in California but has since spread like a plague throughout Central America."

     God-less souls, killing for the sake of killing, human life given less value than that of an ant stepped on while walking down a sidewalk. The reason for the massacre? None given.

     Proverbs 1:12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

     Overwhelm the unsuspecting. Cover them with the darkness of violence for there is no light in the pit.

     Proverbs 1:13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

     “Three high-fashion-minded crooks broke into and fleeced the SoHo Versace store for about $78,000 worth of merchandise, police said on Monday.

     Surveillance footage captured one thief heaving a brick through the Italian label’s glass door on Mercer St. near W. Houston St. before all three entered around 5 a.m. on Sunday, police said.

     The burglars - all wearing hoodies and gloves, police sources said - fled the scene with a trove of apparel and accessories, including 14 handbags, four pairs of mens shoes, three leather jackets, a pair of pants, one red backpack and five shirts.

     The trio remained at large on Monday.”

     Proverbs 1:14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

     Let’s steal and rampage and distribute it evenly among ourselves.

     Proverbs 1:15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

     Proverbs 1:16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

     “Isis tells its followers the rewards for bloodshed are heightened during Ramadan.An Isis-linked media agency has called on would-be extremists to carry out even more Ramadan attacks on members of the public in “low tech” knife, gun and vehicle assaults. 

     Nashir News Service, which is affiliated with Isis’ official media wing Amaq and operates on messaging app Telegram, implored wannabe jihadis to “kill the civilians of the crusaders … gain benefit from Ramadhan [sic].” 

     Proverbs 1:17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

     Murder by surprise. If they see it coming they will prepare for it.

     Proverbs 1:18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

     They’ll even kill their own gang members. Their life is the only one that they look out for.

     Proverbs 1:19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

     “Three people were arrested following the robbery and murder of a recent high school graduate, police said Saturday. 

     Police said Oziel Garcia, 18, was robbed around 12:50 a.m. Tuesday at an apartment complex in the 3300 block of Webb Chapel Extension, near Dallas Love Field. He was fatally shot during the robbery.  

     The robbers drove off in Garcia's red 2008 Chevrolet Silverado. 

     Oziel Garcia was killed by two robbers early Tuesday.

     Garcia's credit card was used hours after he was shot, Dallas police said in a statement Saturday evening. Police obtained video that showed a man and woman attempting to use Garcia's card.”

     Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

     Proverbs 1:21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

     Wisdom runs rampant in the streets but no one listens to her.

     Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

     "A Queens man wanted for fatally sucker punching a 64-year-old man posted on Facebook just hours after the brutal blow that he “had to put my hands on somebody last night.”

     Cops are now hunting for Mathew Smith, 42, who is accused of pouncing on Patrick Gorman, 64, at the intersection of Queens Blvd. and Main St. in Briarwood just after midnight on June 26.

     “I had to bring him back down off of that cloud he was sittin' on,” Smith wrote on Facebook. “I garrantee (sic) you before he opens his mouth next time he'll think about it.”

     Gorman, who lived alone just a couple blocks from where he was attacked, travelled the country to attend sports games, relatives said. On the day of the assault, he was returning home from Baltimore, where he watched the Orioles play the Tampa Rays.

     “Dude thought it was ok to disrespect wifey while on the bus thinkin' nobody was gonna pop up. Not gonna go into details but I had to smack'em to sleep,” Smith wrote on Facebook the day of the attack. “I kinda feel bad though cause of what he had to deal with last night on Queens Blvd.”

     Gorman was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, then transferred to Jamaica Hospital, where he died later that day."

     Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

     Proverbs 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

     The dregs of heaven have been let loose upon the earth but it's all a part of our Father's Plan. Every soul that He ever created has to come through this life in the womb of a woman. The only exceptions are Satan and his 7000 fallen angels.


     And if you think that they're the reason for all this, you are sadly mistaken. Satan will come as the fake, glorious messiah, come to rapture you away, and the 7000 fallen angels seducing those whom they will.

     Only then will the Lord come in all His furious majesty. And take His saints away with Him. The rest will walk into the Lake of Fire and never be remembered again. Ever.

     Heaven will take your breath away and make your knees too weak to stand.
