Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 8 - Morning

"Desire without knowledge is not good —
how much more will hasty feet miss the way!
A person’s own folly leads to their ruin,
yet their heart rages against the Lord."

- Proverbs 19:2-3

Don't Blame God When Immorality Destroys Your Life    

Proverbs 19:2-3 follows the opening verse that introduces the subject of this series.
Proverbs 19:1

“Better the poor whose walk is blameless than a fool whose lips are perverse.”

(A similar proverb is found in Proverbs 28:6.)

Here wisdom advises that it is better to be an innocent poor man, than a fool who attempts to gain wealth by talking “perverse” (Hebrew means “twisted”) or twisting words to get out of poverty.

Which is worse on society:
A) A poor man with integrity? Or,
B) A man with money who twists and perverts words to make money?

Also, ask what is worse for the individual man. To be honest and poor or to be wealthy and wicked?

In Proverbs 19:2-3 Wisdom says that the man who fails to realize that immoral behavior will destroy his life is a man who has desires, but a man without knowledge.

“Desire without knowledge is not good.” – Proverbs 19:2

His own folly will lead him to ruin, yet in the end he will still not understand why he missed the way and was destroyed? In his ignorance he blames God, even though it was his own rush into trying to gain money without understanding the moral implications.

The man of verse one had desires for wealth, but did not have the knowledge that wealth gained immorally would bring him to ruin. He missed the way when he rushed into folly without knowledge of the importance of morality and integrity. This folly of acting with no regard for morality ruined his life.

Since this man is a fool without knowledge he does not understand what went wrong, so in the end he blames God. In his ignorance this man acted without understanding then blames God for the ruin of his life when it was merely the result of his own folly.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Mary was not someone who lacked in service. Jesus had no word of rebuke or complaint for her…Mary helped Martha before Jesus moved into teaching mode. The antidote, therefore, is not for Marys to move closer to being Marthas (to serve more). Nor is it for Marthas to move closer to being Marys (to worship more). This isn’t a question of balance. It’s a question of priority, orientation, and source.”
- Frank Viola
Something to Ponder??

In 63 AD, during the reign of the high priest Ananus, James was taken to a high point of the temple by the Sanhedrin and told to announce to the Jewish crowd coming to the Passover not to follow the false teaching concerning Jesus being the Christ. Instead James announced to the crowd that Jesus was the Christ, he sat at God’s right hand and will return in the clouds of heaven. The scribes and Pharisees then pushed James off the temple and proceeded to throw stones at him. As James prayed for the people he was clubbed in the head and died.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Nahala (Hb) - Possession (Eng) - The Hebrew word nhl or nahala is used in the OT to refer to inalienable property such as land that belongs to a family and not just to one individual. Nahala is property that belongs to a group as an enduring possession.

Nahala is a grant or an inheritance.
Nahala is used in Numbers 26:55-56 to refer to the land of Israel and
in Joshua 13:23, 28, 32 and 14:1 to refer to the territories, or nahala, each tribe would receive.


Leen Ritmeyer has possibly identified the location of the temple, the Most Holy Place and the place in the bedrock on Mount Moriah where the Ark of the Covenant was set. The foundation bedrock that protrudes out of Mount Moriah that is today under the Dome of the Rock has been examined by Leen Ritmeyer. Ritmeyer’s research has made four conclusions:

#3 of 4) Ritmeyer identified:

a) the southern trench which was the south wall of the Holy of Holies

b) the rock scarp 20 royal cubits north of the south trench which would have been the north wall.

c) the natural rock scarp of the bedrock on the west side that preserved the location of the back west wall of the Holy of Holies

d) Ritmeyer then measured from the back west wall location 20 royal cubits to the east and found, as would be expected, no foundational markings for the east wall of the 20x20 cubit Holy of Holies because 1 Kings 6:31 tells us the Solomon had a wooden partition made for this interior wall and overlaid it with gold. The Herodian temple used a curtain (veil) instead (Matthew 27:5). So, Ritmeyer found in a 20 cubit by 20 cubit area foundation markings for the north, south and west exterior walls of the Holy of Holies, but none for the interior east partition.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

I will refuse to lie and twist words for financial gain, social acceptance or to manipulate any circumstances. Speaking and acting with integrity will be more important to me than gaining wealth, possessions or my social image.
