Proverbs 7:11-15
 
Prov 7:11 (KJB)
(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
 
Stubborn - Rebellious
 
This woman of harlotry is very loud because she wants to entice her clients who have come and stood around her house. Instead of her attending to the business of her home, she instead, has chosen to commit adultery with other men. This is the same with false gospels because they are in rebellion against God not having the confirmation of the Scriptures to show that the doctrines are correct. The false gospels are always loud because they must continually keep justifying their position so they may draw the true believer away from the truth.
 
Prov 7:12 (KJB)
Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
 
She is no longer satisfied with the clients who come to her home, now she goes out to the streets to look for those who she can seduce. This teaches us that we live in a sinful world and that there is temptation on every corner and if the Christian is not biblically astute, then they will fall for subtle, as well as blatant temptations. One need not go looking for sin, it will come to us and if we are not strong enough to rebuke it, we will fall. (Gen 4:7 KJV) If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. This was Godís exhortation to Cain that if he was disobedient, then sin lies at the door and will be right there to take him in. Disobedience always starts in the mind and then progresses to action.
 
Prov 7:13 (KJB)
So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
 
Impudent - Strong or prevailing
 
The unwilling or willing sin candidate is caught by the harlot and she speaks to him with a strong or determined face. In other words, she is not going to think twice about seducing this man because her face states that her mind is made up already. It is normally at this stage of the sin that the man will not attempt to leave. This is the same principle with false gospels, once they have you in their grip and they continue to impress you with all the new teachings, you will not want to leave and go back to the old, old story. False gospels and their adherents are set to take as many into their belief system as they can. This is why the Christian must beware of those lurking around with false or even new teachings. When someone says to you that they have new teachings, that is when your spiritual antennas should go up and be doubly on the watch. (1 Pet 5:8 KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8 is more apropos in our day than in any other.
 
Prov 7:14 (KJB)
I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
 
Peace and Fellowship offerings are listed in Leviticus 3. When she states that she has made her vows and have peace offerings, she is somewhat showing that she is a little religious but in reality, she is showing that she has no regard for the feasts and offerings of God. She uses this information to entice her prey. This is also a warning to Christians that there are those who embrace false gospels that try to convince us that they are born again and that they have the true gospel. (Isa 57:21 KJV) There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. Those who must insist that they are born again are trying to relay peace offerings to their intended victim. God states that there is no peace for the wicked. Whenever a Christian is approached by someone they suspect is in a false gospel, then they must grill them with many questions and ask them how they became born again. Never fall for the idea that because they come in peace, that they are coming in truth.
 
Prov 7:15 (KJB)
Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
 
Here she comes forth showing that she is the aggressor and that she was diligently searching for him. It is obvious though from a few verses back that this man wanted to be found. It seems he moved out of the area where he and his friends were standing, maybe so he would not be recognized by those around him. She tells him plainly that she has sought for him and now she found him. Those who want to sin will be willing to be found by those who are engaged in the sin he wants to partake in. Those who flirt with false gospels will also be sought for and taken in by them. Then once they are hooked, it will be extremely hard to break away from them.
