Brighter & Brighter

“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.” (Proverbs 4:18)

A Comparison: The Righteous versus the Wicked

Though a righteous man may “fall” (in sin or evil trouble?) seven times, God Wil enable him to “rise again” regardless (from the “Sin of the fall” or from the “inflicted evil”) as it is written in the verse below (the “reliable” sign from His Holy Word):

“For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity.” (Proverbs 24:16)

*Remember that the “rise” is “not” necessarily earthly meaning the “righteous can perish (die)” from the earth due to evil but he will “rise” into His Kingdom regardless as intrisincally implied by the verses below:

“The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; And devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil,” (Isaiah 57:1)


“The wicked is thrust down by his wrongdoing, But the righteous has a refuge when he dies.” (Proverbs 14:32)

Other related verses from Scripture:

“From six troubles He will deliver you, Even in seven evil will not touch you.” (Job 5:16)

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.” (Psalm 34:19)

“Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous will be condemned.” (Psalm 34:21)

“When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.” (Psalm 37:24)

Here’s a mystery worth pondering (“supporting Universal Reconciliation in Christ regardless”) by a question from prophet Jeremiah:

“You shall say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD, “Do men fall and not get up again? Does one turn away and not repent?” (Jeremiah 8:4)
