Default Verse of the Day

Proverbs 1:28-33
Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD, would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof, therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way, and have their fill of their own devices. For the simple are killed by their turning away, and the complacency of fools destroys them; but whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.


I love this timely verse...on many levels. Hating knowledge and fearing Lee and “the brothers” instead of, or more than the Lord, has it’s own fruit. We see it everywhere.

The reward for fearing the Lord is everything we desire for ourselves and our families, in the place where we live.

Great verse! It's a jaw-dropper how many verses/stories/warnings in the Old Testament have such clear parallels to the LC. I have seen "the brothers" fearing unrighteous men rather than the righteous God one too many times. And don't get me started on the fact that they call knowledge "of death".

But as much as I've experienced a lot of pain from the LC, it still frustrates me that I am sad that they will "have the fill of their own devices". I wish there was something concrete that could be done to save them from having to eat the fruit of their way.

Hi Nell,
Thank you for seeing and expressing exactly the true condition of the people that LSM took advantage of and poisoned with its false teachings. In Vietnam, we are also taught to give up knowledge, not to have opinions, not to study the Bible, only simply accept the words of the ministry of the age. So we are not making the progress in our spiritual knowledge that the Lord can give.
LSM created an atmosphere that made the saints fear each other, watched each other in order to report back about us to the leaders of the LSM office in Vietnam, especially fear of the authority of the ministry of the age. We would to die silently on the cross, not thinking differently from the ideas of the LSM.
Hebrew 2:15 says that Lord Jesus: “might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives”. I think that people living under the yoke of slavery are often afraid of this man and that man. I have seen that when satan rules clearly, there is fear that envelops everyone, only when the Lord rules in His presence, the saints will have peace, rest and courage .
