Daily Inspiration from Proverbs 10 P.106 – New Earth

Proverbs 10: King James Bible

New Earth – Daily Devotion of Proverbs chapter ten, Verses 30-32


30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth. 31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

Daily Inspiration from These Verses – New Earth


Keeping the theme of the past couple of devotionals, these pieces of scripture are not necessarily meant to give you information, so that you can judge between righteous people versus wicked people.

These are for us to weigh against our own behavior, thoughts, words, actions, etc.. Not finger pointing ammunition. Though sometimes, it seems that some folks read the Bible only to figure out how to use the sword of the Spirit against other Christians.  But I digress…

Verse 30, looks like a flat out lie on the surface doesn’t it? It’s usually the wicked that flourishes around here, because they go along the way of the world, and are rewarded by it. So what’s going on with this verse?

This verse is directly attached to the book of Revelation, in my personal opinion. There are a few words that bring me to that conclusion. Those words are “shall never” and “shall not.”

The righteous “shall never” be removed. It doesn’t say are not removed, haven’t been removed, or are not being removed. The phrase “shall never” is future tense. And I’d propose that this future tense is pointing us to a minimum of 1,000 years from now. I’ll tell you how I get there.

The only time that we’re given notice to, is after Daniel’s 70th week, after the one thousand year reign of Christ Jesus, and after Satan is released and causes mischief all over again. After all of that, there will be a new heaven and new earth, and in those days, the wicked will be no more, and righteousness will be what’s left standing with the Father himself.

Isaiah 65: King James Bible

17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

All of these things are future tense, with a lot that needs to happen between then and now. But it is as sure to come to pass as the next sunrise. If it’s in the Word of God, it’s a sure thing to bet on, though it is still far off.

With that understanding in mind, this is a fairly heavy verse, giving us a very slim sliver of a glimpse of that new earth, at least who’s going to inhabit it . But the next two verses shoot directly into words, what comes out of the mouth, and by who.

Back to what was stated above, these verses are for our consumption, so that we can examine ourselves against the Word of God. When we see these verses concerning what words we use (which reveals the condition of our heart), right beside a verse giving us a look at who’s inhabiting the new earth;  perhaps this is a way that the Lord is telling us just how important our words are.

Prayer


Father,

Thank you for all of your revelation, and for all of your help. Cause for us to be among that number, that will dwell with you for all of eternity. May your Kingdom come unto us, and fill our mouths with the stuff of righteousness, no matter where we are, who we’re with, and despite all of the consequences that arrive, that would lead us into speech that is unbecoming to your ears. This we pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen

Question


Have you ever tried to imagine, what it will be like on the new earth?

  1. Greetings Brian…as I emailed you before, my audio cd Psalms/Proverbs are broadcasting the same as this and your previous devotionals. As you know, I’m on the other side of the world from you folks Stateside. As this Proverb is playing, I was looking up at the stars, thanking the Father and Lord Jesus for all of their benevalence toward me and my family. And yes, it is a far ways off, our final inheritance. Absolutely mind boggling. To consider that the Soverign/Most High God of the universe cares about each one of us personally…individually. This is a truly humbling thought I have, and it does keep my grounded to be obedient. Thanks again, God be with you…Amen.

    • Hi there George,
      Amen on that Brother, there is no way to completely wrap our minds around all that the Father has done, and has prepared for us, long before we’ll ever know it. What you’re saying, is a wonderful reason, as well as an example, of either waiting on the Lord, or being still, and knowing that the Lord is God. He never ceases to inspire awe, because he is an awesome God! Amen!!
      Thank you for your comment, and may the Lord bless you mightily in Jesus precious name.

  2. Good morning Brian,
    I wanted to share with you something I had learned several years ago, that I try to remember. The words we speak, that are edifying, or froward go immediately on the the sound waves passing through walls through the atmosphere & beyond. It is like the pebble a young child throws into the lake & watches the ripples expand outward. Our words are out there filling God’s unniverse. This is humbling to think of & brings me to repentance. I grew up thinking certain words made me seem to be mature & hip. Sad to say it made me crude in others eyes. Thank you Jesus for forgiveness & showing me a better way. But old habits follow us through out life, occasionally tripping us up. Yet Jesus is faithful to forgive. God bless your day. Janet Goodwin

    • Hi there Janet,
      That is an interesting way to look at it. That could be so, knowing that the Lord puts such an emphasis on what we say. But I do believe that the words we speak don’t keep on going throughout the universe, but rather find an eventual destination inside some Heavenly books. There will be a day when we’ll be held accountable for the spoken word, and they’ll all be right there for the Lord to see.

      I actually tend to lean toward the idea, of words being one of the few things that begin spiritual, and immediately penetrate into the physical, from the spirit, through the heart, and out the mouth. This is one trait that we share with the Father, having been made in his image.

      I also agree with you about things creeping back into its former place (or at least trying to). I believe that’s one of the reasons the Father weighs the contents of the heart. Because intentions matter to him, and nobody knows better than he, that we’re going to slip up as the old man tries to resurrect itself in our lives. And also, amen. The Father is quick and faithful to forgive. Which means he’ll forgive us even when we don’t think we deserve it. He’ll forgive us anyway, so long as we seek it.

      Thank you for your comment Janet, and may the Father bless you in abundance in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
      Brian
