THE SPIRIT OF REJECTION

THE BOOK OF ENOCH (free book by Enoch)

The Book of Enoch


The Folly Of The Fool INTRODUCTION 1. The goal of Proverbs is to impart wisdom... a. To know wisdom and instruction - Pr 1:1-2 b. To receive the instruction of wisdom - Pr 1:3 2. One way to learn about something is to consider its opposite... a. Want to understand what is wisdom? Then know what is folly! b. Want to be wise? Then don't be a fool! [In studying the wisdom of Proverbs, then, we learn much about 
"The Folly Of The Fool." Exactly what is a fool...?] I. THE FOOL DEFINED A. THE HEBREW WORD 1. 'eviyl; it appears primarily in wisdom literature - Vine's 2. An adjective meaning foolish in the sense of one who 
hates wisdom and walks in folly, despising wisdom 
and morality - TCWD -- A fool thus despises 
wisdom and walks in folly.
B. DEFINED FURTHER 1. The word is used in Scripture with respect to moral 
more than to intellectual deficiencies - 
Unger's Bible Dictionary, p. 375 2. The 'fool' is not so much lacking in mental powers,
as one who misuses them... - ibid. 3. In Scripture the 'fool'...is the person who casts off 
the fear of God, and thinks and acts as if he could 
safely disregard the eternal principles of God's 
righteousness - ibid. A fool thus chooses to 
disregard God and His wisdom [To help us to 
further understand "The Folly Of The Fool,"
let's now consider...]
II. THE FOOL DESCRIBED A. ONE WHO TRUSTS IN HIMSELF 1. In his own eyes, he can do no wrong - Pr 12:15 2. Foolishly, he trusts in his own heart - Pr 28:26.
Conversely, we should trust in the Lord, not 
lean on our own understanding - Pr 3:5-6
B. ONE WHO IS DEAF TO INSTRUCTION 1. Fools despise wisdom and instruction - Pr 1:7 2. Even the instruction from one's father - Pr 15:5 3. Thus fools die for lack of wisdom - Pr 10:21 4. A fool cares only to tell others what he knows - Pr 18:2 5. For a fool thinks he knows everything - Pr 18:13 6. What fools know is soon known by all - Pr 14:33 7. Their foolishness becomes apparent to all - Pr 12:23; 13:16 
Therefore we waste energy in trying to share wisdom 
with a fool - Pr 23:9 C. ONE WHO CANNOT BE DISCIPLINED 1. Fools are destined for much punishment - Pr 19:29, 26:3 2. Yet they are unlikely to learn from attempts to correct them - 
Pr 17:103.  Such hatred of correction is the height of 
folly - Pr 12:1: Trying to correct a fool is folly within
itself - Pr 16:22
D. ONE WHO IS IMPULSIVE 1. A fool is one who vents all his feelings - Pr 29:11 2. His wrath is soon known - Pr 12:16 His impulsiveness makes his folly worse - Pr 14:29 E. ONE WHO COMMITS EVIL 1. Evil is like sport to a fool - Pr 10:23 2. They even make fun of sin - Pr 14:9 Thus it is difficult to get fools to depart from evil-Pro 14:16 F. ONE WHO IS VIRTUALLY UNCHANGEABLE 1. Despite the most extreme efforts to rehabilitate him-Pro 27:22 2. Because he considers it an abomination to depart 
from evil - Pr 13:19; Truly a fool is like a dog that
returns to his own vomit - Pro 26:11 CONCLUSION 1. In summary, then, a fool is a person who... a. Trusts in himself b. Is deaf to instruction c. Cannot be disciplined d. Is impulsive e. Commits evil f. Is virtually unchangeable 2. Reinforcing these qualities of a fool... a. Let's now read Pr 26:1-12 b. Where we find several observations about 
fools and their folly. Hopefully, such observations
and warnings about "The Folly Of The Fool" will
encourage us to choose an alternative path in
life; especially when we consider the final 
contrast between the wise and the fools: 
"The wise shall inherit glory, But shame 
shall be the legacy of fools." - Pr 3:35
What shall we inherit? What shall be 
our legacy? It depends on our
willingness to listen to God. Executable Outlines, Copyright Mark A. Copeland, 2009

There is a battle between the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error. Truth will prevail! Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach. Humanity, it's time to get right.
