A young man, lacking understanding, was walking down the street near her corner and took the path straight to her house. It was twilight in the evening, In the black and dark night. There he met a woman with clothing of a harlot. She had a crafty heart, was loud, and rebellious. She couldn’t stay at home. She was outside, and at times in the open square, lurking at every corner.
She caught him and kissed him. She told him she had peace offerings as she came out to meet him. I have found you, she proclaimed!! She told him that she had spread her bed with colorful bedding, and that she had made her bed smell good with perfume. Then she said to him, “Let us make love until morning and delight ourselves.” She told him not to worry because her husband was gone out of town and he wouldn’t be back for a couple days. Her speech and seductive lips had caused him to yield to her seduction.
He immediately went after her, as an ox goes to slaughter, or as a fool that is shackled. He didn’t know it was going to cost him his life. The text then says, “Listen to me, my children, pay attention to my words, and do not let your heart turn to her ways. Don’t stray into her path!! She has cast down many wounded, and those slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.”
Proverbs Chapter 7.
Now take the word harlot out of the equation and plug in Satan and sin. They are our seductresses. Satan is out and about and is on every corner. The sin he presents to us looks good, tastes good, sounds good, and is our SEDUCTRESS!! God says, “Pay attention to My words, obey My commands, don’t turn your hearts from My ways, and don’t stray off the path of righteousness. Satan has slain many and they were strong individuals. Satan’s house IS the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.
SMILE God loves YOU!! Have a good day all.
