They, “That Forsaketh The Way”

They, “That Forsaketh The Way”

Proverbs 15:10 KJV “Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.”


Hating correction = forsaking the way. That’s what God says. When you have a rebellious spirit you will hate correction. You will also hate anyone God uses to correct you:

Proverbs 15:12 KJV “A scorner loveth NOT one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.”

It doesn’t matter if it’s your best friend, mother, father, husband, wife, son or daughter, if they are a mocker they will hate you for correcting them. They have forsaken The Way:

John 14:6 KJV “Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

That’s right, those who spurn godly counsel have forsaken the Lord Jesus Christ: THE WAY. Since Jesus is the only way to God those who hate reproof are disconnected from God. And the really sad part is some of them have been tricked by the Devil into thinking they are in good standing with God and Jesus.😪


Proverbs 9:7-9 KJV “He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. [8] Reprove NOT a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. [9] Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.”

Matthew 7:6 KJV “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”

Jesus tells us not to rebuke mockers, not to cast our pearls before swine. This will only bring us shame, insults, useless arguments, strife, and other undesirables. When a person makes it clear they reject godly counsel LEAVE THEM ALONE. When people separate themselves from us over foolish ideologies and what not JESUS SAYS to LEAVE THEM ALONE!

Trust me: if God wants to bring a person back to their senses He knows how to do it. (Daniel 4:30-37)

Titus 3:9-11 KJV “But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. [10] A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; [11] Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.”

I know, “But it’s my daughter,” “It’s my son,” “It’s my mother,” “It’s my father,” “It’s my husband,” “It’s my wife,” “It’s my best friend,” etcetera. I know this is not easy but you and I must obey the Lord regardless of who it is. By continuing to try to correct those God says not to rebuke we are making matters worse. Don’t do it. Let us be obedient to godly counsel:

Matthew 19:29 KJV “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”😊

Doing what Jesus says regarding, “They That Forsaketh The Way,” not only protects us but it gets us out of God’s way. Trust me: if God wants to bring a person back to their senses He knows how to do it. (Daniel 4:30-37) So get out of God’s way and obey!😊 You and I will enjoy way more peace because we choose to obey godly counsel.😊
