Wisdom Delivers You From Evil People

Easy-to-Read Version Proverbs 2:2-13 Listen to wisdom, and do your best to understand. Ask for good judgment. Cry out for understanding. Look for wisdom like silver. Search for it like hidden treasure. If you do this, you will understand what it means to respect the Lord, and you will come to know God. The Lord is the source of wisdom; knowledge and understanding come from his mouth. He gives good advice to honest people and shields those who do what is right. He makes sure that people are treated fairly. He watches over his loyal followers. If you listen to him, you will understand what is just and fair and how to do what is right. You will gain wisdom, and knowledge will bring you joy. Planning ahead will protect you, and understanding will guard you. These will keep you from following the wrong path and will protect you from those who have evil plans. Such people have left the straight path and now walk in darkness.

One of the ways to escape the plans of the devil is to use wisdom, this wisdom I am have written about is not the earthly wisdom we pursue but this is the wisdom from above "Theia Sofia". When when a man gains wisdom, he becomes like the serpent, very subtile, for you to become an overcoming Christian, you need to have this kind of wisdom to surely abort the evil plans by the enemy through humans. 

 James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from God is like this: First, it is pure. It is also peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help people who have trouble and to do good for others. This wisdom is always fair and honest.

This wisdom from God will help you in terms of purity, it's pure, it's not of the world, it's not filthy, it's not wicked, it does not pursue injustice but rather what is peaceful and gentle. The wisdom of God is able to deliver a man from evil friends because it also helps you to discern among men, it helps you to walk in the fear of God. 

Easy-to-Read Version Proverbs 1:10-16 My son, those who love to do wrong will try to trick you. Don’t listen to them. They will say, “Come with us. Let’s hide and beat to death anyone who happens to walk by. We will swallow them whole, as the grave swallows the dying. We will take everything they have and fill our houses with stolen goods. So join us, and you can share everything we get.” My son, don’t follow them. Don’t even take the first step along that path. They run to do something evil, and they cannot wait to kill someone.

Know that in our pursuit for the kingdom of God, the devil's incarnate will come in different manner with the intensions of making you fall into the trap of the devil, they will come to infiltrate your heart with evilness but if you have wisdom, wisdom will help you get out of the ways or you shall refrain your foot from their path. They may be among your own friends, your own family members, your own coworkers etc. 

 Wisdom is pure so it shall deliver you from the prostitutes, fornicators, harlot, porn etc

Proverbs 2:12-15
[12]To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
[13]Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
[14]Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;
[15]Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
This scripture is so clear and powerful, it tells us that with wisdom, you can be delivered from the evil man. A man who speaks things that goes contrary to godliness or who does not acknowledge the Lord. 
There are people who leave the path of righteousness in other words, people who ways are never right in the sight of the Lord. 
They can ask you to be in relationship with them but when you know their ways, discreetly, you will reject them. 
They are people who rejoices in doing evil. 

There are some boys in the society or campus who sleeps with ladies or women and gather to count the number of ladies they have broken their virginity. 
They always rejoice in doing things that the Lord hates. So, if you are wise, or when Wisdom enters into your heart, you will see them and save yourself from them.  
The moment you have an affair or sexual immorality with them, you will lose your salvation and the devil will take hold of you. 
Remember there are some people who have been commissioned to destroy the people of God, and these people are agents of the enemy, they can be among your friends, class mates, teachers etc. Never give in and don't accept their evil offers. 
Proverbs 4:16

Proverbs 2:16-19
[16]To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
[17]Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
[18]For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
[19]None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

You will gain discretion to deliver you from a strange woman. 
The stranger here means, a woman who doesn't know God, she is strange to the kingdom because she is an agent. 
Such woman can make you fall and you will never rise up again. 
There are so many such ladies or women who have caused great men to lose their blessings, destinies and every good thing they brought on earth. 
They can flatter with their words: singing praises of you, telling you all kinds of sweet words just to make you fall for them and go on bed with them that you will commit sexual immorality with them and that will be the end of you. 
They can sing praises of your handsomeness, on campus they can show you higher kind of favor as if love is their nature, they can even buy expensive things for you and make unusual closeness to you and if you don't wise up by the time you realize they have slept with you and had taken something valuable from you. 
In the church it can happen, when they see a man or a young boy operating in the gifts of the spirit, they can come closer to you, some can even attack you, show themselves naked to you, they can dress any how just to attract you, but when Wisdom enters into your hearts you will know and understand the kind of people they are and you will reject them. 
  Prov 7:4 Say unto wisdom, Thou [art] my sister; and call understanding [thy] kinswoman:
  Prov 7:5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger [which] flattereth with her words.
  Prov 7:6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
  Prov 7:7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
  Prov 7:8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
  Prov 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
  Prov 7:10 And, behold, there met him a woman [with] the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
  Prov 7:11 (She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
  Prov 7:12 Now [is she] without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
  Prov 7:13 So she caught him, and kissed him, [and] with an impudent face said unto him,
  Prov 7:14 [I have] peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
  Prov 7:15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
  Prov 7:16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved [works], with fine linen of Egypt.
  Prov 7:17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
  Prov 7:18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
  Prov 7:19 For the goodman [is] not at home, he is gone a long journey:
  Prov 7:20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the day appointed.
  Prov 7:21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
  Prov 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
  Prov 7:23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it [is] for his life.

Joseph shewed a great kind of discretion when Potiphar's wife had wanted to commit sexual immorality with him. 
Joseph knew the Lord was with him and if he had done that with Potiphar's wife, the presence of the Lord would leave him. 
Joseph was a young boy who carried the presence of God and whatever he did was successful because he was holy before the Lord. 
Genesis 39:1-8
[1]And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
[2]And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
[3]And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
[4]And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
[5]And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
[6]And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.
[7]And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
[8]But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
He was a virgin young handsome boy with a great destiny. 
Satan had wanted to abort that his destiny but he had to work through someone. Satan is a personality without body who works through empty human (people without God's Spirit). 
So Satan used Potiphar's wife as an instrument of fornication and wanted to make Joseph loose the favor of God that he would have taken hold of him. 
Genesis 39:9-12
[9]There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
[10]And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
[11]And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.
[12]And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
But Joseph who feared the Lord, rejected the words of Potiphar’s wife and flee for his life that he will not sin against the Lord. 
He knew what the Lord had for him in the future so he kept himself holy and he always won the favor of God. 
If you want to win the favor of God, one secrete is to keep your self-holy or become a virgin and the Lord will increase you and make you great. 
Luke 1:30-31
[30]And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.
[31]And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Now the secrete of Mary getting such uncommon favor from God is because she was a virgin and Godfearing lady. Now see the kind of praises Christians sing of Mary today for bringing forth a whole savior of the world. 
Fornication or adultery is a kind of sin that destroys the temple of God which is the body. So, if you destroy the body which is the temple of the Lord, the Holy Spirit cannot dwell in you because He hates all kinds of uncleanliness such as masturbation, lesbianism and guy etc. 

1 Corinthians 6:15-16,18-20
[15]Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
[16]What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
[18]Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
[19]What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost 

My my dear one, wisdom is still available, in our pursuit with God if you really want to escape the devil's plans, you cannot do away with wisdom, for wisdom is very important, it shall deliver you from so many things that you many need not pray about. 

God bless you so much, may God give you wisdom and help from above in Jesus name Amen.
