Proverbs 6:15 (Mini Sermon)Submitted by Pastor Chad Wagner on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
15. Pro 6:15 - "Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy." A. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; i. Therefore adv. - II. 2. In consequence of that; that being so; as a result or inference from what has been stated; consequently. ii. As a consequence of being a naughty person and a wicked man who walks with a froward mouth (Pro 6:12), has a frowardness in his heart, devises mischief continually, and sows discord (Pro 6:14), calamity will come up him suddenly. a. Calamity n. - 1. The state or condition of grievous affliction or adversity; deep distress, trouble, or misery, arising from some adverse circumstance or event. b. Suddenly adv. - 1. Without warning or preparation; all at once, all of a sudden. iii. Life often goes well for the wicked for a time while their cup of iniquity is filling up (Gen 15:16; Ecc 8:12). iv. Because of this their heart is fully set in them to do evil (Ecc 8:11). v. It can seem like it takes forever while we wait to be avenged of our persecutors (Rev 6:10). vi. But when judgment time comes from God, it comes suddenly and grievously (Psa 37:1-2; Pro 3:25; Pro 29:1; 1Th 5:3). a. The destruction of Babylon came suddenly (Isa 47:11) after she had been unmerciful (v. 6), given to pleasure (v. 8), dwelling carelessly (v. 8), proud (v. 8), trusting in herself (v. 10), and wise in her own conceit (v. 10). (i) Does that sound like another nation we are quite familiar with? (ii) Babylon was conquered suddenly in one night (Dan 5:30-31). b. The destruction of Mystery Babylon will likewise come suddenly in one hour (Rev 18:10, 19). B. suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. i. The wicked will be broken. a. Broken adj. - 1. a. Separated forcibly into parts; in fragments; in pieces. (The resulting damaged state is often the main notion.) b. God will break their arms (Psa 10:15) and teeth (Psa 58:6). c. He will dash them to pieces (Psa 2:9). ii. The wicked will be broken without remedy. a. Remedy n. - 1. a. A cure for a disease or other disorder of body or mind; any medicine or treatment which alleviates pain and promotes restoration to health. 2. a. A means of counteracting or removing an outward evil of any kind; reparation, redress, relief. b. When the judgment of wicked men comes, there will be no redress or relief (Pro 29:1; 2Ch 36:16-17).
