"For the lips of a strange woman drop as honeycomb and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two edged sword." Proverbs 5:3,4
IN JESUS TODAY!
Ok, let us start by saying that there are strangers among us. Who are the strangers? Those that are not of God's truth, now this may sound judgmental, but even the word stranger implies that one is different or not like the other. And so there are strangers, those that are different, not equally yoked if you will, and not of our same faith in God. In faith, love, hope, and all of their actions they are different or strange, because they do not follow Jesus! Therefore there are strangers among us! Now it is these strange folk, unbelievers, carnal in actions, worldly in faith, that we must watch their lips! For what they say, often is not the truth and will lead us down a crooked path. Full of flattery with dark motives, Self-serving, and deceitful, their words have a destructive agenda behind them. Strange folk, unbelievers, are quick to speak sweet words that slide into our ears and go down into our heart without effort or convincing, they are smoother than oil. It is these strange folk with their flattering words and their sliding/gliding agendas that destroy lives and capture souls and will lead them into captivity through addictions, immorality, and the same selfishness that plagues our world today. These are sharp and dangerous, hurting the heart of many, destroying the mind, and cutting the soul into pieces wherever they are permitted to enter, as it is written, "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision." Philippians 3:2
Friend, trust Jesus and stay close to those that have put on the mind of Christ! Like a T-Bone steak, eat the meat and spit out the bone, only swallowing that which is good for the soul!
Only swallowing that which is good for the soul!
