TEXT: PROVERBS 9:7-9
(7) He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot.
(8) Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
(9) Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
KEY VERSE: PROVERBS 9:8
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
Hot temper is an extreme anger. It is a deep rooted spontaneous anger that controls the individuals affected. Demons work effectively with anger. Anger no matter the level is dangerous for a Christian who wants to make Heaven. Therefore it must be dealt with to get it off your life.
Anger is a natural feeling of pain and displeasure arising from the heart against a person for a bad action or against a bad circumstance. The Bible says, ''Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil'' (Ephesians 4:26- 27). Anger has the tendency to cause people to sin and defile a holy person. The emotion of anger seeks to take over the reasoning and demands immediate action. Offense, worry and complaints become your normal life.
Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
You hear some people say, I am hot tempered. Is that statement for a holy Christian? No. What is the final fruit of that hot temper as you call it? Does it minister grace to others? That is an anger that has grown to extreme stage, and is always controlled by demons. You are under demonic influence. That is why a little thing you flay up and show action that is unchristian. This is the character of demons, always feeling offended and ready to act.
Correction or rebuke becomes offense to you. You become a scorner. Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee (Proverb 9:8). As a scorner, you cannot enter Heaven. Whoever gives you correction or rebukes you, becomes your enemy. Your pastors become your enemy when you hear a word that touches you from them. Are you not under demonic influence? Repent in time and get rid of that defilement before it destroys your soul.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Get rid of anger before it destroys your soul.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Make me holy (3x) O Lord.....
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Jeremiah 7-8; 1Timothy 2
