Proverbs 27: 1-7
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips. Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but a fool's provocation is heavier than both. Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy? Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. One who is full loathes honey from the comb, but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.
A provoker is a very a dangerous person. He or she who provokes others to act according to the sinful nature is a very dangerous person on this Earth. The Devil himself is one of them. In fact, he is the chief of it. He cunningly provoked God against Adam and Eve. He succeeded in doing just that but he and the demons were eternally cursed. Man still have a chance of gaining eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord but the Devil, the demons and those who keep obeying the Devil's sinful nature are doomed forever already. The Devil is still the one who provokes God to his wrath today. He still keeps provoking God. How is this done? If it is possible, he will make everyone obey his or her sinful nature within so that God will be provoked to His wrath. The Devil is incurably evil. That's why he and all those who follow him will be destroyed in the lake of fire forever. Why does the Devil provoke God? Because, he is jealous of God. He wants God to punish all mankind because he is condemn already in the sight of God. He wants everyone to join him in that condemnation of God. But, there is no condemnation to those who obey Christ and all that He had commanded.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Reconciliation with God comes through Jesus Christ our Lord. Why was this reconciliation necessary? Because of our sinful separation from God since Adam's sin of disobedience. How is this reconciliation possible now? Through the obedience of Jesus Christ our Lord to the Father. One disobeyed and the other obeyed the Father in heaven.It's through the obedience of Christ our Lord that we could have reconciliation with God. There is no other way we could come to Him.The Devil was jealous of God so he provoked God to His wrath but the Lord Jesus Christ turns everyone who believes and obey him back to God.
