“Eat the Fruit of Their Own Way…”

“Eat the Fruit of Their Own Way…”

Blessings folk!

What happens to those who…
  • Refuse the call of God
  • Neglect His counsel
  • Do not want His reproof
  • Hate knowledge
  • Choose not to fear the Lord
  • Do not accept His counsel
  • Spurn His reproof
  • Naive
  • Complacent
  • Fools

They will eat the fruit of their own way…

Pro 1:23-32

“Turn to my reproof,
Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.

“Because I called and you refused,
I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention;

And you neglected all my counsel
And did not want my reproof;

I will also laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your dread comes,

When your dread comes like a storm
And your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.

“Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently but they will not find me,

Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the LORD.

“They would not accept my counsel,
They spurned all my reproof.

“So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way
And be satiated with their own devices.

“For the waywardness of the naive will kill them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them.

They will…

  • Have calamity
  • Have dread
  • Have anguish
  • Have distress
  • Call on the Lord, He will not answer
  • Seek the Lord, He will not be found
  • Spurn the Lord
  • Be satiated with their own desires
  • Be killed, destroyed

But, the last verse…

Pro 1:33
“But he who listens to me shall live securely
And will be at ease from the dread of evil.”

Listen to the Lord.
Live securely in Him.
Be at ease from the dread of evil!
