This Message Is Getting Massive Reads WHY? What The Verse Means, " As A man Thinketh, So He Is", Ready For A Rude Awakening. Its A Bible Truth

Quote by-C.H. Spurgeon

" Sermons and books are well enough, but streams that run for a long distance above ground gradually gather for themselves somewhat of the soil through which they flow, and they lose the cool freshness with which they started from the spring head. It is always best to drink at the well and not from the tank. You will find in reading the word of God for yourselves, reading IT rather than notes upon it, is the surest way of growing in grace. Drink of the unadulterated milk of the Word of God, and not of the skim milk, or the milk and the water of man's word".

I was reading a new text book for the theology degree school. It is a quality text book on, 'Systematic Theology-An Introduction', 240 Pages of great truths. In the preface I read a verse so many take out of context and it is this I want to write on. The well known and a misused verse by many. Pro 23:7 As A man thinketh, so he is...

How many times have you quoted that, heard it, sermons on it, as it were a good thing? Well...ready for a shock?

Reading in context, simply the words before and after clearly teach us the verse does not mean what most think it does. I will give the KJV verses.

Pro 23:6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

Pro 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.


Proverbs 23:7
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he,.... He is not the man his mouth speaks or declares him to be, but what his heart thinks; which is discovered by his looks and actions, and by which he is to be judged of, and not by his words;


Proverbs 23:7

Thinketh - The Hebrew verb is found here only, and probably means, “as he is all along in his heart, so is he (at last) in act.”


Proverbs 23:6-8

Beware of deceitful men, whose courtesies even you will repent of having accepted.

ALL commentaries agree, I know the opening is notes on the bible are second to the bible. I am showing this to say, in context if you read it, the bible itself, with no bible helps, it is crystal clear what it truly means. It is not a good thing like most have come to believe.

This verse speaks of someone that has evil intentions inside, and is trying to trap, or deceive you, his evil thoughts are what is in his heart. His mind as he, the evil Peron thinks, so he is. Do you see this. It is easy to see by the bible alone. I just gave some profs from bible helps to establish, all older commentaries explain it as it is. In context it does not mean what you think.

People who teach a lot about the mind, thoughts, the battle ground of the mind and such, positive confession, using this verse. they teach, " As we think, so we are, so we must think correct thoughts, blessing thoughts, ". Wait, this is speaking of the evil inner intentions of another. This will blow some minds, this I know but it is what I do, it is what you should do. Study to show thyself approved.

Not just taking men's notes on what it means, miss applying the real meaning and fitting it into their theology and doctrine. The skim milk as the quote above says. The pure water of the word, it is living, refreshing, satisfying, like nothing else.

I was shocked reading the preface of this well done old book on, Systematic Theology, the writer said, in the wrong context and he is a PHD, an old Presbyterian using the using, " The baptist confession of Faith 1689" Good lord. I was stunned, I thought the writer, who seems correct in most of what he says, but the introduction quotes this Prov as a good thing, concerning what is called, 'Theology Proper'. It is old, not new, this is how poor exposition, even by Scholars are proven to be wrong. This train of thought as been with us a long, long time. This is how false doctrines, bad exposition made up by man long ago, becomes a foundational thought. It is such with many man made doctrines.

I was just shocked, who am I, I know what it means, I have ministered on my own main website about this, what it means in context. Things that are old, do not always mean they are right, and many things new are not always biblical nor correct.

The preface says, all Christians are theologians in their own right, for as a man thinketh so he is....

Well sad to say, this scholar is wrong, and most who have quoted this verse, heard sermons on it, books based on it, teachings on the mind, thinking subject, you only need to read in context to see what it means.

The problem is single verse doctrine and theology, It can not be done. If a lie is repeated long enough, it becomes a truth. Every person reading this can easily read in context, and easily see by the verse above, it does not mean what most have been taught.

So, do not quote this Prov. verse as some kind of bible promise, it is far from it, it is a verse taken out of context, you can quote it till your blue in the face, confess it til your out of breath, it will not change the meaning of what you are quoting. I hope this instructs, explains, yet another bible example of study in context, and study in Greek and Hebrew. If not, we are not in study to show ourselves approved and will not rightly divide ( Dissect-Greek ) the word, and we will be Christian work man that will be ashamed. Study in context, do not take single verse theology and make it a non-biblical ritual.
This will shock many reading it, but reader we have the Bible on it, it is a truth, what it really means, has just been told you.

Think on this.

Not Everyone Hears The Same Thing-But We Should And We Can

Joh 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

Joh 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

Joh 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

Jesus made it very clear the sound was a voice, not thunder, It was articulate, and spoke clearly as John by the spirit says.

It makes me think of a few things. Some people are like the man that needed a second touch, at first they see men walking as trees, it took a second touch, only time in bible this happened, Jesus did not heal completely first time, why? So, others see right away, someone hears things muffled, or similar to a noise, like thunder, others hear the words.

There is a deep insight in this. Do you hear the word of the lord, the small still voice, prophecy as a thunder, a noise, but not clear words? Do you hear and understand clearly, the small still voice. It matters what you believe.

If you think the lord no longer speaks today as he always has, you may not even hear a thunder, if you think the lord is a good man, a prophet, but nothing more, you may hear a strange sound. If you hear the lords voice as a angel, you may be in to Christian Mystical things, thinking its always an Angel, and not the Holy Spirit. If you hear clearly, understand quickly. You may be right on track.

JFB says:

The people therefore that stood by, said, It thundered; others, An angel spake to him — some hearing only a sound, others an articulate, but to them unintelligible voice.

Same as what the lord spike to my heart, just looked that up PTL. True and I will add, if you are not one in Christ as Jn 17, The lords prayer, says we are one in Christ... You will hear something that is unintelligible. The lord wants us to hear clearly, but first we must draw nearly to hear the voice as it is spoke. Reading the bible with scales off your eyes, as the God of this world, blinds the eyes, minds of those that do not believe.


John 12:29
The multitude who stood and heard - A sound, but not the distinct words - In the most glorious revelations there may remain something obscure, to exercise our faith. Said, It thundered - Thunder did frequently attend a voice from heaven. Perhaps it did so now.

True , it could have been a voice and a thunder , but the point is, ....A sound, but not the distinct words - In the most glorious revelations there may remain something obscure, to exercise our faith. Said, It thundered.

So what obscures your hearing, do you have faith? do you have trust? do you even believe the lord still speaks outside of, but not contrary to his word? Are you a seeker, are you backslidden.

Draw near to the lord, and he will draw near to you. He will reveal his secrets to those that are close enough to hear his holy whisper, the small still voice, and illumination of the word. Are you to far away to hear?

Our Little Dog We Have Had 4 Years Was Killed Today-An Old Video

This is a very, very hard post. The video is nice than I give a message from ECC 9:4 to encourage you, it is 'a living dog is better than a dead lion', how odd, now our loving Cam-Camo, is now gone, it just happened  1.5 hours ago, man we are broken, may this little gift RIP. OCT 6 , 2015 we loved this dog so, so much. We have a big dog(SHY) German Shepherd about 2 years old , she will be loved so much more. The part that hurts is we know who hit the dog they always fly down the dirt road, that is hard and no matter what we must love this person, a fellow Christian and our ride to town.

Perplexity-Many Are In The Trial Of Their Life.

Luk 21:25  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

From the same as G639; a (state of) quandary: - perplexity.

From a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and the base of G4198; to have no way out, that is, be at a loss (mentally): - (stand in) doubt, be perplexed.

Middle voice from a derivative of the same as G3984; to traverse, that is, travel (literally or figuratively; especially to remove [figuratively die], live, etc.): - depart, go (away, forth, one’s way, up), (make a, take a) journey, walk.

Hope; in perplexity and times of it before the great tribulation'

Luk 21:35  For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Luk 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Paul spoke of being perplexed;

2Co 4:8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

2Co 4:8  We are troubledG2346 onG1722 every side,G3956 yetG235 notG3756 distressed;G4729 we are perplexed,G639 butG235 notG3756 in despair;G1820

1. We are troubled Greek:

Akin to the base of G5147; to crowd (literally or figuratively): - afflict, narrow, throng, suffer tribulation, trouble.


From a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and the base of G4198; to have no way out, that is, be at a loss (mentally): - (stand in) doubt, be perplexed.

Same as Lk 21

Middle voice from a derivative of the same as G3984; to traverse, that is, travel (literally or figuratively; especially to remove [figuratively die], live, etc.): - depart, go (away, forth, one’s way, up), (make a, take a) journey, walk.

I know we will be where we are, note in Greek it can be Figuratively, thus, a new move, a traveling into the unknown, and not a lit. Homelessness, or to some it can be thus.

Dispare Greek:

Middle voice from G1537 and G639; to be utterly at a loss, that is, despond: - (in) despair. or ( Despondent)

From a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and the base of G4198; to have no way out, that is, be at a loss (mentally): - (stand in) doubt, be perplexed.

Note same word as what we are not , is the smae from what we are # 639

Middle voice from a derivative of the same as G3984; to traverse, that is, travel (literally or figuratively; especially to remove [figuratively die], live, etc.): - depart, go (away, forth, one’s way, up), (make a, take a) journey, walk.

again same odd,

From the base of G4008 (through the idea of piercing); a test, that is, attempt, experience: - assaying, trial.

2Co 4:8  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

< Commentaries>


2 Corinthians 4:8
We are troubled on every side,.... Or afflicted; εν παντι, either "in every place", wherever we are, into whatsoever country, city, or town we enter, we are sure to meet with trouble, of one sort or another; for wherever we be, we are in the world, in which we must expect tribulation: or "always", every day and hour we live, as in 2Co_4:10 we are never free from one trial or another: or "by everyone"; by all sorts of persons, good and bad, professors and profane, open persecutors and false brethren; yea, some of the dear children of God, weak believers, give us trouble: or "with every sort" of trouble, inward and outward; trouble from the world, the flesh and the devil:

yet not distressed; so as to have no hope, or see no way of escape; so as to have no manner of comfort, or manifestations of the love of God; or so as to be straitened in our own souls; for notwithstanding all our troubles, we have freedom at the throne of grace, and in our ministry; we can go with liberty to God, and preach the Gospel boldly to you:

we are perplexed; and sometimes know not what to do, which way to take, what course to steer, or how we shall be relieved and supplied; we are sometimes at the utmost loss about things temporal, how we shall be provided for with food and raiment; nor are we without our perplexing thoughts, doubts, and fears, about spiritual affairs:

But not in despair; of the Lord's appearing and working salvation, both in a temporal and spiritual sense.

- Doddridge;

The whole passage is one of the most pathetic and beautiful to be found in the New Testament. The word rendered “troubled” (θλιβόμενοι  thlibomenoi, from θλίβω  thlibō) may have reference to wrestling, or to the contests in the Grecian games. It properly means, to press, to press together; then to press as in a crowd where there is a throng Mar_3:9; then to compress together Mat_7:14; and then to oppress, or compress with evils, to distress, to afflict, 2Th_1:6; 2Co_1:6. Here it may mean that he was encompassed with trials, or placed in the midst of them so that they pressed upon him as persons do in a crowd, or, possibly, as a man was close pressed by an adversary in the games. He refers to the fact that he was called to endure a great number of trials and afflictions. Some of those trials he refers to in 2Co_7:5. “When we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.”


Yet not distressed - This by no means expresses the force of the original; nor is it possible perhaps to express it in a translation. Tyndale renders it, “yet we are not without our shift.” The Greek word used here (στενοχωρούμενοι  stenochōroumenoi) has a relation to the word which is rendered “troubled.” It properly means “to crowd into a narrow place; to straiten as to room; to be so straitened as not to be able to turn oneself.” And the idea is, that though he was close pressed by persecutions and trials, yet he was not so hemmed in that he had no way to turn himself; his trials did not wholly prevent motion and action. He was not so closely pressed as a man would be who was so straitened that he could not move his body, or stir hand or foot. He had still resources; he was permitted to move; the energy of his piety, and the vigor of his soul could not be entirely cramped and impeded by the trials which encompassed him. The Syriac renders it: “In all things we are pressed, but are not suffocated.” The idea is, he was not wholly discouraged, and disheartened, and overcome. He had resources in his piety which enabled him to bear up under these trials, and still to engage in the work of preaching the gospel.

We are perplexed - (ἀπορούμενοι  aporoumenoi). This word (from ἄπορος  aporos, “without resource,” which is derived from α  a, the alpha privative (“not”), and πόρος  poros, way, or exit) means to be without resource; to know not what to do; to hesitate; to be in doubt and anxiety, as a traveler is, who is ignorant of the way, or who has not the means of prosecuting his journey. It means here, that they were often brought into circumstances of great embarrassment, where they hardly knew what to do, or what course to take. They were surrounded by foes; they were in want; they were in circumstances which they had not anticipated, and which greatly perplexed them.

(Our Hope In Such A Time )

But not in despair - In the margin, “not altogether without help or means.” Tyndale renders this: “We are in poverty, but not utterly without somewhat.” In the word used here, (ἐξαπορούμενοι  exaporoumenoi) the preposition is intensive or emphatic, and means “utterly, quite.” The word means to be utterly without resource; to despair altogether; and the idea of Paul here is, that they were not left “entirely” without resource. Their needs were provided for; their embarrassments were removed; their grounds of perplexity were taken away; and unexpected strength and resources were imparted to them. When they did not know what to do; when all resources seemed to fail them, in some unexpected manner they would be relieved and saved from absolute despair. How often does this occur in the lives of all Christians! And how certain is it, that in all such cases God will interpose by his grace, and aid his people, and save them from absolute despair.


perplexed, but not in despair — Greek, “not utterly perplexed.” As perplexity refers to the future, so “troubled” or “hard pressed” refers to the present.

VWS-Vincents word study-Greek;

In despair (ἐξαπορούμενοι)
Rev., very neatly, rendered unto despair. The word expresses an advance of thought on perplexed, yet on the same line. We are perplexed, but not utterly perplexed. The play between the Greek words cannot be rendered.

As noted above in my Greek study, I was writing, ODD, we are not this, but we are.

Vincent brings out this odd thing-The play between the Greek words can not be rendered. Gee thanks a lot LOL.

Readers listen. I will speak to you that are in this place, not as one who does not understand, but as one that is going through this myself . I often say, the best sermons, teachings, books, are by those who have gone through what they are talking about, or are going through it at present.

I am reading these in emails, so many, right now, today, are going through the same thing, or things like it.

I recall the 2010 Prophecy, only my old reader’s will understand.

The hand to mouth prophecy. Given in 2010, it started in 2012, my wife lost her 50.00 a week unemployment, we, at that time, had nothing . I thought this was it. I was wrong. What we are facing right now may be it, may...may..,time will tell.
Our Son on SSI, has been the source God has used to pay for our rent, and one person to keep us with power and such. Now, the big test, the denial, the perplexity of losing all.

1. I have only seen Jesus one time, it was on the mission grounds, long story. The lord came and said to me, “Fear not, be strong and of good courage, you will not lose this place, I have chosen it for a reason". That was it, short, true, sweet. That was over a year ago, at this time I think on that, and the promises given in the bible.

2. the other thing it could be, could, I repeat, is the true fulfillment of the 2010 prophecy-Hand to mouth. If this is the case, the prophecy was, “once we no longer have anything to put to our mouth, know this, the Judgments are right behind.

It is number one or two.

2015 Has from, Lit. Jan 1, been the year of chaos for us, and many reading this.

I want to encourage you, you may see no way out, but Jesus is the way, thus we have a way out. This does not mean we will not have harder and harder, trials, tribulations, perplexing thoughts, cares within and without. They will increase, and soon ALL will be where we are, and some reading this are.

The lord said long ago, " I am allowing all this, so you will be strong, learn manna faith, daily faith, no worry, and know what it is to live in a financial collapse, before it comes, it will make you prepared to serve, you words will have weight as one who has been in it many years, non stop, I will not, in love take it away, trust me, I know what I am doing, I have you covered".

This same word is to some reading this. Many in Churchanity, head in sand Christians, will soon lose all, the house of cards will fall. The lord is allowing this on many to prepare them to serve and move in faith.

It is hard, scary, upsetting, perplexing at times, I have learned, over and over, at the last second the lord took care, he always will. Soon it will be in a different way than any of us have every seen, or experienced. We must suffer, some, not all, and it is for a reason, building Faith, love, compassion, a spirit that will not cave in, give up, those who have been, and are being tested to the max, it is a good thing, we are to embrace it, JOY in it and look to our lord.

I know this is for some, I know it is for me.          

I do not know who is reading this. I ask you reader, to pray for us, for the lords Grace and mercy at this time of great, great trial, perplexity and the unknown. But we, you, do not have to be in despair.
WE have the victory, by faith in love, and Hope.

Vow Of No Silence; New Edit. -A Song I Wrote May It Speak To All-Pass This On

I have not posted a music video in a while, this is contemporary and has a bold message. It was to be used out doors in open air outreach. I have had hate mail because of SOME of my music, as a Fundamentalist, and ...well....I guess David Wilkerson would rebuke me, the thing is, THIS IS NOT CHURCH MUSIC. As an Evangelist most of my life, I tried simple gospel songs while playing on the back of a flat bed truck in ghettos and inner city's, that did not work, so I started to hit hard with strong contemporary music like this. After a few songs, and at the end, a very hard call to repentance, it is only bait, and hundreds a few times thousands came out, and many were saved so I know what works, say what you want, it is not worship music, but listen to the words and watch the pics.

This is one song on Sound Click that hit number 7, a top 10 song out of 300,000 Rock songs, it brought many non- believers to my music page and emails, that was the point and many were saved, so amen. Use what you have, do what you do, always point to Christ.

Share this with ones who are not saved, it is an evangelism song.
I will put back my FREE music link and FREE books link to the left, read the books, and listen, download the music, it is all 100% FREE.


Iron Is Preparing You For Gold

Psa 105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

Psa 105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

Psa 105:20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.


The word of the Lord, concerning his advancement.....

the word of the Lord tried him: it tried his faith and patience before it was accomplished; and when it was, it purged him and purified him, as silver in a furnace, and cleared him of the imputation and calumny of his mistress; for, even in the view of Pharaoh, he appeared to be a man in whom the Spirit of God was.

Spurgeon Psalms:

Whose feet they hurt with Fetters.” From this we learn a little more of Joseph's sufferings than we find in the book of Genesis: inspiration had not ceased, and David was as accurate an historian as Moses, for the same Spirit guided his pen. “He was laid in iron;” or “into iron came his soul.” The prayer book version, “the iron entered into his soul,” is ungrammatical, but probably expresses much the same truth. His fetters hurt his mind as well as his body, and well did Jacob say, “The archers shot at him, and sorely grieved him.” Under the cruelly false accusation, which he could not disprove, his mind was, as it were, belted and bolted around with iron, and had not the Lord been with him he might have sunk under his sufferings. In all this, and a thousand things besides, he was an admirable type of him who in the highest sense is “the Shepherd, the stone of Israel.” The iron fetters were preparing him to wear chains of gold, and making his feet ready to stand on high places. It is even so with all the Lord's afflicted ones, they too shall one day step from their prisons to their thrones.

Until the time that his word came.” God has his times, and his children must wait till his “until” is fulfilled. Joseph was tried as in a furnace, until the Lord's assaying work was fully accomplished. The word of the chief butler was nothing, he had to wait until God's word came, and meanwhile “the word of the Lord tried him.” He believed the promise, but his faith was sorely exercised. A delayed blessing tests men, and proves their metal, whether their faith is of that precious kind which can endure the fire. Of many a choice promise we may say with Daniel “the thing was true, but the time appointed was long.” If the vision tarry it is good to wait for it with patience. There is a trying word and a delivering word, and we must bear the one till the other comes to us. How meekly Joseph endured his afflictions, and with what fortitude he looked forward to the clearing of his slandered character we may readily imagine, it will be better still if under similar trials we are able to imitate him, and come forth from the furnace as thoroughly purified as he was, and as well prepared to bear the yet harder ordeal of honour and power.

Websters definition for Fetters;


1. A chain for the feet; a chain by which an animal is confined by the foot, either made fast or fixed, as a prisoner, or impeded in motion and hindered from leaping, as a horse whose fore and hind feet are confined by a chain.

The Philistines bound Samson with fetters of brass.

Judg 16.

2. Any thing that confines or restrains from motion.

Passions too fierce to be in fetters bound.

FET'TER, v.t.

1. To put on fetters; to shackle or confine the feet with a chain.

2. To bind; to enchain; to confine; to restrain motion; to impose restraints on.

Fetter strong madness in a silken thread.

This speaks of basically chains, placed wherever, even in the mind, chains. This history tells us, we can in time, be set free from the chains that are keeping us down. The N.T. tells us, we are not to faint, lose heart, for in due time our work will be rewarded. There are historic stories of those who were never set free from real chains, prisons, set free after death. Our ultimate setting free, from flesh, circumstances, labors, troubles, warfare, these do not fully end until they fully end in the world. The message is not what I want to bring forth, as in this story, it is true Joseph suffered a very long time, but he was set free and he was used in a great way.

I love what Spurgeon said,

The iron fetters were preparing him to wear chains of gold, and making his feet ready to stand on high places.
