Proverbs 10:25 (Mini Sermon)Submitted by Pastor Chad Wagner on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.
25. Pro 10:25 – "As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation." A. As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: i. Whirlwind n. – 1. A whirling or rotating wind; an atmospheric eddy or vortex; a body of air moving rapidly in a circular or upward spiral course around a vertical or slightly inclined axis which has also a progressive motion over the surface of land or water. ii. Pass v. – 1. a. To go on, move onward, proceed; to make one's way. iii. As a tornado passes and is no more, so it is with the wicked. a. So adv. – II. Placed at the beginning of a clause with continuative force, and freq. preceded by and. 9. Denoting similarity or parallelism in some respect between two facts, actions, etc. b. There is much similarity between whirlwinds and the wicked. iv. Consider the similarity between a passing whirlwind (tornado) and the wicked. a. As the time a whirlwind spends in a certain area is relatively short, so is the time of the wicked on earth (Psa 37:10). b. As a whirlwind leaves destruction in its wake (Pro 1:27), so do the wicked (Rom 3:16). c. As a whirlwind is uncontrollable, so are the wicked who are froward (ungovernable) (Pro 2:15). d. As a whirlwind is used by God as a judgment against sinners (Jer 30:23; Nah 1:3), so are the wicked used likewise (Psa 17:13-14; Isa 10:5). v. When the time of the wicked is expired they will be "no more" on this earth and will not be remembered (Psa 37:35-36; Job 24:20, 24; Ecc 8:10). B. but the righteous is an everlasting foundation. i. Like a whirlwind, the wicked only spend a short time on this earth wreaking mayhem, havoc, suffering, and trouble. ii. The righteous, conversely, is an everlasting foundation. a. Righteous adj. - 1. a. Of persons: Just, upright, virtuous; guiltless, sinless; conforming to the standard of the divine or the moral law; acting rightly or justly. b. Everlasting adj. - 1. a. Lasting for ever; infinite in future duration; endless; = ETERNAL A. 3. c. Foundation n. – 1. The action of founding or building upon a firm substructure; the state or fact of being founded. 2. fig. The action of establishing, instituting, or constituting on a permanent basis. 6. fig. a. A basis or groundwork on which something (immaterial) is raised or by which it is supported or confirmed; an underlying ground or principle; the basis on which a story, fiction, or the like is founded. d. In other words, just and upright men who conform themselves to God's law show themselves to be established on a permanent basis, and not built on a sandy foundation like the wicked who do not endure. iii. The wicked will be cut off, but the righteous will inherit the earth (Psa 37:9). iv. The righteous man's life is built upon a firm foundation which will endure into eternity (Mat 7:24-25). v. The time the righteous spend on earth may be short, but their works follow them into eternity (Rev 14:13). vi. They have everlasting life (Joh 6:47), and an eternal inheritance (Heb 9:15). vii. They will be eternally remembered by God (Psa 112:6).
