Q. What does the word “application” mean to you? : 

Q. What does the word “application” mean to you? A. According to Webster’s Dictionary: the act of applying – so what does apply mean? “Apply” simply means to put to some practical or specific to use! What good is knowing God’s Truth if we do not learn how to apply it – put the TRUTH into application in our daily lives! Its not how much WORD we know – its not the truth we know - ITS WHAT WE LIVE! What we apply each and everyday consistently! APPLICATION 2

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 : 

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 “YEA, IF THOU CRIEST AFTER KNOWLEDGE” –We must not become complacent, not only bow the ear and bend the mind to these things, but pray for them; not only listening to the teaching and preaching of the word by men, BUT CRY TO GOD TO GIVE THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION! *Psalms 119:72 says THE LAW OF THY MOUTH is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. Source of TRUE TREASURE: *Colossians 2:3 says In whom (GOD) are HID ALL THE TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. 7 APPLICATION

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 : 

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 Same Word translated apply in 2:2 - “BOW DOWN ” #5186 (naw-taw‘) to stretch or spread out. “APPLY” #7896 (sheeth) to place (in a very wide application): - apply, appoint. KNOWLEDGE Strongs #1847: Knowledge: The pictograph d is a picture of a door. The o is a picture of the eye. Through the eyes one experiences his world and learns from it. Combined these pictures mean "THE DOOR OF THE EYE". The eye is the window into the mans very being. Experience is gained through visual observation. Knowledge is achieved through these experiences. 11 APPLICATION

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 : 

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 23:12 APPLY THINE HEART UNTO INSTRUCTION, and thine ears to the words of knowledge. 12 APPLICATION

Our TEXT:Proverbs 2:1-5, 22:17 & 23:12 “APPLY” #935 (bo) to go or come (in a wide variety of applications): - abide, apply, attain. INSTRUCTION - Strong's #4148: AHLB#: 1342-L The pictograph x is a picture of a thorn representing a turning, the r is a picture of a head. Combined these mean "TURN THE HEAD". The turning of the head to another direction. One who rules turns the people to his direction. The turning the head of the child or student into a particular direction. There is no better way to do this than to read AND MEDITATE (the application comes as THINK upon the WORD)- on God’s Word every day. Say to yourself, “No Bible, nothing else! Bible first and foremost in our lives keeps the enemy from coming later on in the day and keeping us from it for whatever reason! As one man said No read, no feed” – in others words place our Bibles before our flesh! 13 APPLICATION

APPLICATION #1 APPLY THINE HEART TO UNDERSTANDING (Discretion) “Discretion” is the freedom and the authority to make decisions and choices that are separate and distinct from others – from the world!

We do what we speak – because we speak out of the abundance of the heart! 16 APPLICATION

APPLICATION #2 APPLY THINE HEART UNTO MY KNOWLEDGE (Life By The Door Of Your Eye) “THE LIGHT OF THE BODY IS THE EYE” - Or, the "CANDLE OF THE BODY IS THE EYE"; for the eye is that in the body, as a candle is in the house; by the light of it, the several members of the body perform their office; and what is seen of the information taken in of the eye of the body, is conveyed to the eye of the mind! *Revelation 3:8 says I know thy works: behold, I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 25 APPLICATION

APPLICATION #2 APPLY THINE HEART UNTO MY KNOWLEDGE (Life By The Door Of Your Eye) Some have erred, they or of this world and there EYE is not single: *2 Peter 2:14 says HAVING EYES FULL of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: a heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: This is why Paul prayed for the believer – for even you and me today: *Ephesians 1:18 says THE EYES OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING BEING ENLIGHTENED; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, The Lord gave this responsibility to Paul: *Acts 26:18 says TO OPEN THEIR EYES, AND TO TURN THEM FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. This is why Paul had been blinded on the road to Damascus – he could not see spiritually only fleshly! The Lord changed all of that and taught him how to press to that mark of the high calling in Christ! 27 APPLICATION

Energy or Fat? : 

Energy or Fat? APPLICATION 35

Energy or Fat? : 

Energy or Fat? I've been told that during World War II, that they gave American soldiers more than bullets just before they went into combat. They also gave them a chocolate bar. It makes sense, when you think about a sugar rush, when they need all the energy they could muster. SO, MAYBE SUGAR'S NOT ALL THAT BAD. Of course, if you give it to a man just before he's about to go and lie on the couch for a hour - now that's bad. That's the funny thing about sugar. YOU EAT IT, YOU EXERCISE - IT'S ENERGY. YOU EAT IT AND JUST LIE THERE - IT'S FAT. We're looking at this because well, God has a lot of fat kids - because THERE'S NO CONVERTING OF FOOD INTO ENERGY. You don't just study God's Word to know something. Every time you pick up this book, you're supposed to do something differently. Now most of us get a wonderful diet of Bible teaching. We feast on sermons, Bible study, and tapes, and books, and seminars, radio programs (whoops!). BUT YOU COULD HAVE A NOTEBOOK FULL OF BIBLE NOTES, AND A LIFE THAT IS STRANGELY EMPTY OF ANY REAL CHANGE IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS, OR YOUR FINANCES, VERY LITTLE CHANGE IN YOUR PET SIN, OR YOUR ATTITUDE, YOUR TEMPER, YOUR PRIDE, YOUR COMPLAINING. Why is it that North American Christians are so well fed, and yet, so spiritually powerless compared to third world Christians who have so much less? Could it be that we're just hearing it, filing it, and not applying it? Are we just letting it turn into spiritual fat? And people in situations where they have to put it immediately to work are living on it, living for it, living it! See, we need exercise! That means that you study the Bible to find out what God is saying about a particular issue - and then, not to stop there, but to determine a specific act of obedience that He wants you to carry out this day. You keep a journal, you write down and process what He said to you, and then what you said to Him that you were going to do that day, because of what He said to you through His Word. Writing it down makes the abstract concrete. Then, it's right there in front of you. WE'RE ACCOUNTABLE!!! APPLICATION 36
