And I discovered that of all irrational sins none has been so destructive in beguiling one away from God as immoral women.
For more bitter than death is the woman whose heart is composed of snares and nets, and whose hands are chains.Whoever pleases God will escape from her, but the sinner will be taken captive by her [evil].
My fellow brothers, if either of you desires a righteous life, a rightness before the Lord, if any of you wants to keep his testimony, about the saving and sustaining power of Christ, bind wisdom upon your fingers, write the word of the Lord upon the table of your heart.
Say to skillful and godly wisdom, “You are my sister,” and regard understanding and intelligent insight as your intimate friends.
Man of valor, if you desire a good name, a worthy name, a commendable testament, let alone keeping your marriage, flee the strange woman.
The Bible doesn’t tell you to walk away, or pray in tongues at that crucial moment, the Bible tells you to run! To flee! To hasten your feet away from her.
Do not entertain her, do not give her a listening ear, do not give her room for negotiation, do not listen to her, run!
For she has cast down many [mortally] wounded; Indeed, all who were killed by her were strong.
Her house is the way to Sheol, Descending to the chambers of death.
The Bible records an account of more than ten scriptures in Proverbs alone, warning us against her slithering ways. She’s not a joke. She’s not a facade. She’s not an imaginary being. She’s as real as the morning sunrise. As real as the dark night.
Flee from her brother.
If you are really keen on keeping your marriage pure, honoring your marital bed, flee the strange woman. Her way(s) descend to only one destination. Death.
The Bible says that her end is as bitter as wormwood and as sharp as a double-edged sword.
She kills, she steals, she destroys, she annihilates, she roots out!
Run from the strange woman!
It’s puzzling, how Solomon was inspired to use the word ‘strange’ to describe this woman.
For he too fell victim to the strange women. They turned his heart towards other gods. They caused him to abandon the covenant of the Lord God – the God of his father David.
Solomon the wisest man who was and will ever be, called her a strange woman.
Why does the word of the Lord call her strange? What is so strange about a strange woman?
The bible calls her so because her ways are really unorthodox, unusual and unknown to a man who lacks spiritual insight.
A man stagnated in his walk of faith, a man not anchored in Christ, a man with a wavering faith, tossed to and fro by the pressures of life, will be easily swayed and beguiled by her wiles.
So that she does not think [seriously] about the path of life; Her ways are aimless and unstable; you cannot know where her path leads.
As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
For on account of a one is reduced to a piece of bread [to be eaten up], And the immoral woman hunts [with a hook] the precious life [of a man].
She’s unstable in everything.
Her ways are not clearly defined nor seen, unless the Lord opens up your heart to understanding – having a Godly discernment for she is a woman without discretion.
Like a pig with a golden ring on its snout, whatever you invest in her, be it yourself, your time, assets, money will all be a waste. Yes, a strange woman will kill you brother! She will take your life unapologetically.
A strange woman doesn’t reveal her goal(s) forthrightly. Like a lioness hunting for prey, she too hunts for a man who is not grounded enough. A man who has let his guards down.
She’s very intentional, purposeful, deliberate and calculated in her acts.
A man with no understanding will fall for her false charm.
She’s diligent at seeking out a man who is obstinate. An unyielding heart is her specialty.
She will quickly take down man with an impotence in bearing fruits of the Holy Spirit. She is intent and determined to take as much from a man with no character.
She appears as a bride, but behind the mask is a woman with a wicked, apathetic and heartless soul. Her beauty is purely cosmetic. Her parched spirit drives her to take and never to give.
She’s a bottomless dark pit. [Proverbs 22:14]
She will seek you out diligently and relentlessly until she ensnares you. This what Proverbs 7:15
says, “Diligently I sought your face and I have found you…”
This is to say that she doesn’t give up nor quit. Once you give her a minute, she will stretch it to an hour! A step to a mile. Her actions are premeditated. She weighs in the opportunities presented to her. She’s there to gain, to take, to syphon, to amass, to pull and never to give.
Against all odds, she will win over a man who is double-minded. The Bible says that a man with such a mind is unstable in all in his ways and this is not just a good opportunity for a strange woman, but a perfect breeding ground for her to thrive.
So you think you are born again enough not to heed to correction? Think twice.
You cannot boast about anything! Your accolades, achievements, gains, wealth cannot save you from her tentacles, only Christ can!
She has slain many and buried more when they were still alive.
She has put down mighty men.
She has smitten many with their majestic grandeur.
She drowns a man’s splendor.
She gorges out a man’s foresight.
She suffocates his vision to death.
She disjoints and crushes his God given strength to a pulp.
She chokes a man’s mission to death.
She steals his creativity
She aborts his masculinity.
Mr. Do not entertain her, run!
