Proverbs (Program #4) – The Detailed Precepts for Man To Live a Proper Human Life (2)

The book of Proverbs contains gem after gem of detailed precepts concerning how to live a proper human life. Many proverbs touch similar topics – consider these few gems that touch the benefit of learning to restrain one’s speech. First in Proverbs 10:19 “When there are many words transgression does not cease, But he who restrains his lips is prudent.” And this one from Proverbs 13:3 “He who guards his mouth keeps his soul, But he who opens wide his lips will have destruction.” And Proverbs 14:23 “In all labor there is profit, But mere talk leads only to poverty.” These nuggets gleaned from Proverbs all concern the same subject. In this case related to our loose talk. Being able to consider the Proverbs topically arranged in this way, gives a strong and lasting impression. And we are devoting three special programs to present this marvelous aid for our own study and appreciation of the book of Proverbs.

2 Thessalonians (Program #4) – A Further Word of Encouragement

According to 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 there are three definite things that need to take place prior to the Lord’s second coming and the rapture of the church.

First, the apostasy of God’s people must occur. Then the son of perdition, the man of lawlessness, the one we call anti-Christ must raise up and be revealed. And finally, the temple in the Holy City, Jerusalem must be rebuild, because at the certain point before the visible return of Christ, this anti-Christ sits himself in the temple and exalt himself above all that is called God.

There is no single passage in the Bible gives us all the details and specific timing of the end time events. For those we need to go to many different passages in the Bible. One of the most important of which is found in Daniel chapter 9 in the Old Testament and what is known as the 70 weeks of Daniel.

Daniel 9:24 says:”Seventy weeks are apportioned for your people and for your holy city, to close the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make propitiation for iniquity, and to bring in the righteousness of the ages, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Holy of Holies.”  Well, the 70 weeks unfold in the next few verses and we will do our best to touch them today in a brief way.
