Verse of the Day: The Wise Work Hard

September 24, 2007


11 He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread,

But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding.

Proverbs 12:11 (NKJV)

11 A hard worker has plenty of food,

but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.

Proverbs 12:11 (NLT)

Proverbs is one of my favorite books in the Bible. It is so full of wisdom and knowledge! This verse is not an absolute. There will be some exceptions. Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. But if you follow the advice laid out in the Bible, you can be rest assured that God will provide for your needs. As long as you do your part, God will do His.

From the Nelson Study Bible:

tills his land: Many proverbs contrast hard work with laziness. Wise people work hard while fools waste their time.

    the second coming of the lord jesus christ is near… remember his sabbath day!! for sabbath day is the sign between you and god. if you are worshiping on sunday you are not obeying the commandments of the lord! you are just obeying the doctrines of your church and the commandments of men!

    Isaiah 66:22-23 22 ”For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before me,” says the LORD, “So shall your descendants and your name remain.
    23 And it shall come to pass That from one New Moon to another, “And from one Sabbath to another”, All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the LORD.”

    Matthew 15:9 “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for “doctrines the commandments of men.””

    2 Timothy 4:3-4 3 “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound “doctrine”. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”

    2 Corinthians 11:13-14 13 “Such people are false apostles, dishonest workers who are masquerading as apostles of the Messiah. 14“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”

    Daniel 7:25 “’He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.”
    – satan is masquerading as the messiah. he is the one who change sabbath from saturday to sunday! for sabbath day is the sign of loyalty! a sign between you and god. He change it to sunday to take away the deciples of jesus christ.

    Ezekiel 20:12 “Also I gave them My Sabbaths to be a sign between me and them that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them.”

    Matthew 24:25 “Behold, I have told you before.”

    – Wake up my dear brother! Spread and Bring this word to other angels! for the end is near…
