Proverbs 3:34 “Toward the scorners HE is scornful, but to the humble HE gives favor!”
The Scorner’s Reward
“Witnessing scorn” is
expected at times
when our words meet
with all the World’s Hatred.
When mentioning JESUS
is all that is needed;
hosts who explode.
Inviting decisions to join
HIM WHO isn’t like them
then a critical crossroad
Choose Life or to die
through eternity’s passing…
is not then a choice which
lasts just for a moment.
So those who laugh here
shall find CHRIST has recorded
their careless response…in
THAT DAY to replay.
As such, every scorner whose
“wit” drives their whim…shall
rewarded be by HIM WHO
hears every word!
As HIServant purposed to encourage even those still bent on throwing stones,
Devotional: Proverbs 1:22 “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scorners delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge?”
Proverbs 19:29 “Condemnation is ready for scorners, and beating for the backs of fools.”
Proverbs 14:6 “A scorner seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for a man of understanding.”
Yesterday in some street ministry with my wife and daughter, we witnessed the world’s scorn first hand as we prayed with a couple.
Near the end of my prayer with them they both unsuccessfully stifled a laugh and laid on thick their attempts to seem interested.
They’d approached us for prayer as our signs read “Free Prayer.” But they’d only come to mock as an apparent “fun” activity for themselves.
But GOD! Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, GOD is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
So we pray and plant seeds while GOD records the event for that judgment day.
That hour when HE shows them their own actions…as proof of their eternal guilt and for the punishment of Hell.
1 John 3:13-14 “Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.
14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.”
So preach boldly and share HIS NAME gladly in love! HE sees!
Amen and amen!
