  • 19 The Pearls of Wisdom (Finances - Our Attitude)

    19 The Pearls of Wisdom (Finances - Our Attitude)

    08/11/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have been considering some Pearls of Wisdom. Over the past three weeks we have considered some of the character traits that are revealed in chapter 6. In each of these of three and in our previous consideration of Proverbs 3:9-10, where we were told to honor YHWH with our material resources, we have noted that what we believe will be realized in our actions and attitudes ... and the chief of those is in regards to our finances. Proverbs has much to say regarding our Attitude on Finances, Acquisition of Finances, and Administration of Finances. Hence, LORD willing, we will be spending the next three weeks considering this subject ... and will probably just be scratching the surface of the Biblical teaching. Today, our goal will be to consider our Attitude on Finances. This message was presented on November 8, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

    18 The Pearls of Wisdom (The Worthless Man)

    01/11/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have been considering some Pearls of Wisdom. Over the past two weeks we have considered some of the character traits that are revealed in chapter 6. In each of these we have considered a positive trait, or attribute: trustworthiness and diligence, respectively. Today, however, we run into a portion where a certain "type" of individual is just outright denounced and condemned - "The Worthless Man." This message was presented on November 1, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

    17 The Pearls of Wisdom (Being Diligent)

    25/10/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have been considering some Pearls of Wisdom. Last week, we began considering some of the character traits that are revealed in chapter 6. In today's passage, we are called to consider, and learn from, the ways of one of the smallest species of God's creation - the ant. This message was presented on October 25, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

  • 16 The Pearls of Wisdom (Being Trustworthy)

    16 The Pearls of Wisdom (Being Trustworthy)

    18/10/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have been considering some Pearls of Wisdom. In our recent messages, we have seen that because YHWH is faithful and true, we can trust in Him with ALL our hearts, and make Him known in ALL our ways, by leaning not on our own understanding but, rather, following His guidance. Over the past couple of messages we have discussed two of the primary WAYS that we reveal that we are trusting Him - by honoring Him with our material resources and by accepting the expression of His love through discipline and chastisement. Today, we will begin looking at several character traits that will be evidenced in the lives of those who TRUST YHWH. Those who truly TRUST YHWH will emulate His Trustworthiness in their lives. They too will desire to be trustworthy in their words and dealings. This message was presented on October 18, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

  • 15 The Pearls of Wisdom (Accepting the Love of YHWH, Pt. 2)

    15 The Pearls of Wisdom (Accepting the Love of YHWH, Pt. 2)

    11/10/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have transitioned into more of a "Topical Approach" in considering the Pearls of Wisdom. In our recent messages, we have seen that because YHWH is faithful and true, we can trust in Him with ALL our hearts, and make Him known in ALL our ways, by leaning not on our own understanding but, rather, following His guidance. Solomon then provides us with two critical areas of life in which we reveal that we are TRULY trusting in YHWH. The first area was regarding how we honor YHWH with our material resources. Last week, we began considering the second area: how we accept the love of YHWH expressed in His chastisement. We are told, “For whom the LORD loves He chastens, and scourges every son He receives.” (Hebrews 12:6) As we mentioned last week, this area of our walk with the Lord has been expounded upon by the writer of the book of Hebrews. Hence, we are considering Hebrews 12:1-13 alongside Proverbs 3:11-12. This message was presented on October 11, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

    14 The Pearls of Wisdom (Accepting the Love of YHWH, Pt. 1)

    04/10/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have transitioned into more of a "Topical Approach" in considering the Pearls of Wisdom. In our recent messages, we have seen that because YHWH is faithful and true, we can trust in Him with ALL our hearts, and make Him known in ALL our ways, by leaning not on our own understanding but, rather, following His guidance. Solomon then provides us with two critical areas of life in which we reveal that we are TRULY trusting in YHWH. Two weeks ago, we examined the call for us to honor YHWH with our material resources. With the command, YHWH provided a promise that He would bless those who trust Him in that area. Similarly, with today's exhortation we are given tremendous encouragements as well! It will take us two weeks to adequately cover the volume of verses that this "pearl" covers. Today's portion has been expounded upon by the writer of the book of Hebrews. Hence, we will use Hebrews 12:1-13 alongside Proverbs 3:11-12. This message was presented on October 4, 2020 by Bo

  • 13 The Pearls of Wisdom (Honoring YHWH)

    13 The Pearls of Wisdom (Honoring YHWH)

    20/09/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have transitioned into more of a "Topical Approach" in considering the Pearls of Wisdom. Three weeks ago, we considered the call for us to bind "mercy and truth" about our necks. In that message, we considered that the Hebrew words used were: khesed and emet, and that combined they referred to a trustworthiness - faithful and true. Additionally, this combined quality was applied to YHWH Himself and is what Jesus (YHWH Incarnate) would be referred to as at His return. It is this attribute, as well, that will be applied to those who serve the Lord faithfully! Last week, we saw that because of the khesed and emet of YHWH being bound about our necks we should trust in Him with ALL our hearts. In doing so, we will not lean on our own understanding but rather "acknowledge Him" (lit. know Him) in ALL our ways. Today, we will discuss THE CHIEF WAY that reveal that we are truly trusting in YHWH ... If we HONOR Him with our MATERIAL RESOURCES! As Jesus stated in the Sermon on th

    12 The Pearls of Wisdom (Trusting in YHWH)

    13/09/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have transitioned into more of a "Topical Approach" in considering the Pearls of Wisdom. Two weeks ago, we considered the call for us to bind "mercy and truth" about our necks. In that message, we considered that the Hebrew words used were: khesed and emet, and that combined they referred to a trustworthiness - faithful and true. Additionally, this combined quality was applied to YHWH Himself, is what Jesus (YHWH Incarnate) would be referred to as at His return, and is the attribute that will be applied to those who serve the Lord faithfully! Today, we will continue in Proverbs 3 ... where we see that the next command is actually an extension of binding khesed and emet around our necks. If we embrace the khesed and emet of YHWH then we naturally will trust in YHWH! This, then, will lead to affecting the way we think and act in our decision making process. This message was presented on September 13, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

  • 11 The Pearls of Wisdom (Mercy and Truth)

    11 The Pearls of Wisdom (Mercy and Truth)

    30/08/2020

    In our study of the book of Proverbs, we have transitioned into more of a "Topical Approach" in considering the Pearls of Wisdom. "A natural pearl (often called an Oriental pearl) forms when an irritant works its way into a particular species of oyster, mussel, or clam. As a defense mechanism, the mollusk secretes a fluid to coat the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating is deposited on the irritant until a lustrous pearl is formed." (JThomasJewelers.com) ... The truth recorded in Proverbs can be like that little irritant. It first rubs against you the wrong way and you may initially want to set up your "defense mechanism" against it. But, eventually, given time the truth will work in you to produce something that is extremely valuable! Jesus likened the Kingdom of Heaven to a Merchant who was searching for costly pearls. When he found one of great value, he sold everything he had in order to purchase it! (cf. Matthew 13:45-46) There are many valuable pearls to be found in the book of Proverbs!

  • Heaven - Adjusting our Focus (Pt 2)

    Heaven - Adjusting our Focus (Pt 2)

    23/08/2020

    In this, the second part of a 2-week look at heaven, and its impact on our lives today, we are continuing our examination of a question I posed at the beginning of last week's message. Can a person truly be too heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good? Or is its opposite what is really true. Namely that the more heavenly-minded we are, the more earthly-good we will be to others, and the more effective we will be in doing God's work in this world? "Aim at heaven and you will get the earth thrown in. Aim at earth, and you get neither." (C.S. Lewis) We are not of this world (John 17:14-16), so we cannot afford to make the things of this earth our aim or priority in life. My hope is that this teaching on heaven will allow each of us to walk away with a renewed passion for holy living, a renewed passion for our purpose and our progress, and a renewed passion for people.

    Can a person truly be too heavenly-minded that they are no earthly good? The reality is that the more heavenly-minded we are, the more earthly good we will be to others, and the more effective we will be in doing God's work in this world. "Aim at heaven and you will get the earth thrown in. Aim at earth, and you get neither." (C.S. Lewis) Heaven is not only the certain hope of every believer in Jesus Christ, but understanding and talking about it can also be a great way to help unbelievers find the answers that they are looking for. My hope is that this teaching on heaven will allow each of us to walk away with a renewed passion for holy living, a renewed passion for our purpose and our progress, and a renewed passion for people.

    10 The Pearls of Wisdom (Food and Drink)

    02/08/2020

    In the beginning, God created. .. in an orderly fashion. He created the heavens and the earth. He created light. He created the atmosphere. He created the seas and the lands. He created vegetation. He created the sun, moon and stars. He created the fish and the fowl. He created the land creatures. He created man. Consider Genesis 1:26-31. When God created humans, He created them in His image and likeness, to have dominion over the rest of creation. He created them to be fruitful and multiply. He also created them with a need to consume "food" to provide nutrients to their bodies. So, before God created animal life or human life, He created vegetation to be for food for mankind. Food is a blessing of God. It is not evil. Yet ... it can be and has been used for evil. At the beginning, Satan tempted Eve with food. It was good-looking, would taste good, and was the first "SuperFood!" ... it would give you wisdom to become like God! (*The food industry bestows the superfood label on nutrient-rich foods with a su

    09 The Pearls of Wisdom (Life and Health)

    26/07/2020

    Over the past three years, approximately $3.5-3.6 trillion has been annually on U.S. Health Care. That works out to be about: $10,739 per person per year. Put that together with the $11.6 billion that is spent annually in the Self-Improvement industry and you will note that mankind significantly cares about The Quantity and The Quality of Life. And yet, for all of the money that is spent in those areas ... as well as in the entertainment industry and consumable industries ... length of life and steadfast happiness is fleeting. It cannot be bought or purchased. This in fact, has been declared to by God in His Word. (Psalm 90:10,12 10 "The days of our lives are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years ... So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." Psalms 39:4-7 4 "LORD, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I may know how frail I am. 5 Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, and my age is as nothing before You; certainly eve

    08 The Path of Wisdom

    19/07/2020

    Today's message is a continuance of the "The Pursuit of Wisdom" ... As we considered over the past two weeks, IF TRULY WANT WISDOM and SEEK FOR IT LIKE THE TREASURE THAT IT IS ... THEN: YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THE FEAR OF YHWH and FIND THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD. If you do that, then you will have begun walking along the PATH OF WISDOM. If you do that, then the goal is to continue to walk on the straight path! And THAT is the summation of living the Christian life!!! Jesus said, "I am the way ... no one comes to the Father except by me." (John 14:6) Jesus also said, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." (Matthew 7:13-14) Joshua was challenged in this light by YHWH, "Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the righ

    07 The Pursuit of Wisdom (Part 2)

    12/07/2020

    "The fear of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge." That is the over-riding precept for the book of Proverbs. From that precept is derived the principle that flows through much of the teaching and is the gist of many of the proverbs in the book - "The wise will desire wisdom and understanding; the fool will despise wisdom and understanding." Last week we began considering "The Pursuit of Wisdom." What we desire will guide our priorities and will be evidenced in our passions. In our passage, we see a large conditional statement with four requisites followed by a resultant promise based upon the faithfulness of YHWH. Last wee we considered the four requisites. Today, we want to consider the promised result and the basis for this promise. This message was presented on July 12, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

    06 The Pursuit of Wisdom

    05/07/2020

    Proverbs 1:5-7 "A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." This passage provides us the Precept and Principle upon which the book of Proverbs is built. We have seen this precept and two-pronged principle continuously cropping up in each of the messages on the book of Proverbs so far. Today will be no different! Everybody has, in some manner, a "Wish List" ... or a "Bucket List" ... of things that they would like obtain, see, or accomplish. What is it that you TRULY WANT? What is on your BUCKET LIST? .... Where is wisdom on that list? Today, we want to begin considering Our Passion for Wisdom ... by considering The Pursuit of Wisdom for which this book calls. We will be considering this topic over the next two weeks. Our primary passage is established as a conditional statement with mu

    05 The Portrait of Wisdom

    28/06/2020

    Proverbs 1:5-7 "A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." This passage provides us the Precept and Principle upon which the book of Proverbs is built. We have seen it displayed in each of the past three messages; today, will be the same! Repetition is the key to learning! God desires for us to understand the importance of our response to the call of wisdom! In the beginning of the book, wisdom is personified as a woman whose call is in contrast to another woman (described as a harlot) who is the personification of foolishness. Today, we want to consider the Portrait that is verbally given within the first nine chapters of the book. This message was presented on June 28, 2020 by Bob Corbin.

  • 04 The Propagation of Wisdom

    04 The Propagation of Wisdom

    21/06/2020

    So far in our study of the book of Proverbs, we have considered that the purpose of the book of Proverbs is to provide wisdom, knowledge, discipline, understanding, discernment and discretion. Additionally, we have seen that the primary precept of the book is: the fear of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge. The principle then that is derived from that precept is that those who are wise will seek the wisdom and understanding, but fools will despise wisdom and understanding. Last week, we began considering Solomon's Counsel to his son to make it his goal to Possess Wisdom. He warned him against the counsel of sinners who would seek to have him focus on the Wealth of the World instead. The proposition of the book of Proverbs is that Wisdom is the best thing that we can possess. Today, we continue looking to Solomon's desire to Propagate Wisdom to his children by considering his Challenge recorded at the beginning of chapter 4. The use of doublets, as a literary device (coupled synonyms, binomial expressions,

    14/06/2020

    The Purpose of the book of Proverbs is to provide wisdom, knowledge, instruction, understanding, discernment and discretion. Last week, we considered the primary precept of the book: the fear of YHWH is the beginning of knowledge. The principle then that is derived from that precept is that those who are wise will seek the wisdom and understanding, but fools will despise wisdom and understanding. As we continue in our study of the book, we instantly see Solomon place a challenge to his son regarding choices. This book of Proverbs is all about choices! Our choices will be affected by our desires - in the end, what is it that we want to possess? The proposition of this book is that Wisdom is the best thing that we can possess.

    Google Self-Help Books ... 5.1 Billion results!!!! ... Self-Improvement Industry - $11.6 Billion in 2019. Scriptures are "God-Breathed" and written via holy men moved by the Holy Spirit to complete and equip the man of God to all good works (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Tim 3:16-17). The Wisdom recorded in the book of Proverbs has stood the test of time. It was "written" to provide us with: wisdom, knowledge, instruction, understanding, discernment and discretion. Last week, we began an Introduction into the book of Proverbs by considering the Purpose of the writing and beginning to consider the primary Principle and Precept. Today, our goal is to continue our consideration of the primary Principle and Precept of the book. This message was presented on June 7, 2020 by Bob Corbin.
