Prov. 7 - BLotz

II Timothy 2:3-4:  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.


Read Proverbs 7

Prov 7.
Satan has an agenda
Destroy/corrupt the 3 things God has set up.
Government, Church, Family

*Satan can take care of all 3 if he “focuses on the family”. More specifically individuals that make up/lead the family.

Mat 12:29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Luk 11:21
When  a strong man armed keepeth  his palace, his goods  are in peace:
*Proverbs will teach you how to rule your palace.

Prov 24:5 A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might

Proverbs 7
V1-3 “ Keep” = guard
V3 memorize it. “heart”= mind

V4-5 two “women” are introduced. One literal and one metaphoric or personified

V6-9

V7 What kind of person are we dealing with? PROV 10:13
V8  He wasn’t looking for evil.
V9 Guys n Dolls. Sky Masterson to Sergeant Sarah Brown “Sarah, I know the night-time. I live in it. It does funny things to you.”

V10 her “attire”. There is no denying that Satan’s agenda has trickled into the fashion world.
Remember the word “harlot”  
V11-13. Her characteristics:
V11.”feet abide not in her house” she is not content  and not doing what is expected.
Titus 2:3-5, 1 Timothy 5:14  GUARD AND GUIDE
V14 this is her being a “good little jewish girl” equivalent of a girl inviting over for a “late night bible study” EVIL CAN BE RELIGIOUS



V15-18 this is red light/red flag that anyone with wisdom and understanding would see and run!
Joseph Genesis 39:11-12

V19-20 Bigger red lights.  REMEMBER: HE LACKED UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM
Why didn’t this young man run?
Prov 14:15 Are you that way? It will be bad for relationships, professionally, business transactions etc.

V21 He’s caught


V22-23 “the rod” from Prov 10:13
As an ox to the slaughter –a ring in his nose. We’ve all seen this guy or girl, haven’t we?
Till a dart strike through his liver REMEMBER this dart, it’ll come up again
Proverbs 6:25-26


V24-27
V26- Solomon was probably referring to his dad (DAVID) her.
V27- Is this talking about a literal death?
Spiritually ineffective, spiritually dead.
It may cost you the family God intended you to have.

_____________________________________________________________________________
What do we do with this?
REMEMBER LUKE 11 AND PROV 24:5
Ephesians 6:10-17
“SCHEMES” anything that can steal your affection for Jesus
SATAN HAS AN AGENDA! “it’s not like a harlot will come running up and kiss me and tell me she desires me”  
OR WILL SHE?
Porn=porne (greek)=harlot

M-ake up your mind
A-void Situations
S-ubject to someone for accountability
K-eep your heart with all diligence.  Prov. 4:23

We are in a war and have been chosen by God to fight.
After we gear up (Eph), NEVER FORGET THAT SATAN HATES YOUR GUTS and he
HAS AN AGENDA

Encouragement:
James 1:2-12
Coincidentally patience is “her”
Some of us lack wisdom b/c we haven’t asked for it.
