Dangerous Ratio: Reason One


To enter the Kingdom of God can not be by compromise, most importantly for a woman, although it concerns every saint. For the purpose of this piece, the word ‘woman’ will feature prominently because a woman, Eve,started being the mother of all creatures. It is noteworthy that everyone is concerned, male or female.
Still on the observation of the Preacher, the Son of David who was a King in Jerusalem (Ecclesiastes 1:1) who had searched and found very dangerous ratios (1000:1:0) in Eccl 7:27-28.
This means that in a gathering of saints (a church group) on the way to the kingdom of God, there was no woman there but only one man in a thousand that entered . Is this not a very dangerous trend?
The Preacher reaveals in Eccl 7:29,
“Truely, this only I have found:
That God made man (mankind) upright;
But they have sought out many
Schemes”
What the Preacher has searched and found can be said to better then than now. Jesus Christ, many years after the demise of the Preacher has this to say for our generation and coming one,
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now
the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and,the violent
take it by force.” Matthew 11:12
May the Lord help us to take it by force.
One of the reasons it is so hard for a woman (and a man) is this DANGEROUS CALCULATIONS. What can this be? Let us go to the book of Genesis 3:1-2. In verse one, the serpent’s question, using New King James Version as our guide, contains fourteen (14) words. In verse two, Eve’s reply contains forty-two (42) words. Calculate the ratio, please what is your result?
Not only that, let us consider the daughters of Eve in I Samuel 9:11-13. Saul and his servant asked the young women who met them as the duo were looking for Prophet Samuel. They asked the young women,
“Is the seer here?”
With the question mark(?), these are five words, that is verse eleven (d). Verses twelve to thirteen contain their reply of eighty-seven words. Carry out the calculation again. What is your result? Is this not too much? James 3:2 warns everyone,
‘for we all stumble in many things. If
anyone does not stumble in word, he is
a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.”
Thank God that they helped the strangers but in their multitude of words have put Samuel in danger by explaining everything they know about him. If Saul and his servants were his enemies, they would have captured him easily. Proverbs 10:19 discloses,
“In the multitude of words sin is not
wanted.”
Then Provebs 9:13 rightly states,
“A foolish woman is clamorous;
She is simple,and knows nothing.
Do you know that the multitude of words of many women have killed people, including their husbands? That is the evil in multitude,and uncontrolled words. The important question now is “will the multitude of words allow you to make (get into) the kingdom of God? Therefore, Psalm 141:3 must henceforth be your song, morning, afternoon, evening and night.
“Set a guard, O Lord, over my
mouth;
Keep watch over the door of my lips.”
