Scripture: Proverbs 1:20-33
On March 30th 2007, a legislator from Greensburg, Kansas authorized a bill to make casino gambling legal in that state. A believer was present and the Holy Spirit moved on him to rise and read Proverbs 1:20-33 which is God’s rebuke and His promise that because you refused to listen to wisdom that He would mock when their destruction came and He would not hear their pleas. Exactly five weeks later to the date, on May 4th 2007 the legislator who introduced gambling was at home when an E F 5 tornado hit his city and took a complete U course destroying 95% of the town. He was only saved because he was in his bathtub. The legislator who was moved on to stand up and read Proverbs 1:20-33 was God’s verb in that situation. How would we have done with his assignment? As you can imagine, he probably endured a tremendous amount of ridicule and yet five weeks later the God who is life to life and death to death, visited the author’s city and utterly destroyed it. Do we represent Him? There are a growing number of believers who are preparing to represent the same Jesus that Paul refers to over and over again. Is it not time we got to know the fullness of our God?
