It is important for every Christian to be delivered from the snares and traps of strange people. In the book of Proverbs, God has given us some of the signs by which we can identify a strange person and avoid her!
1) She moves in a particular group.
“…a young man…passing through the street near her corner…” Proverbs 7:7,8
Strange people have their special corners. They also have special groups of friends who congregate with them at these special places. People flow together in groups, the like minded with the like minded, friends with friends.
2) She operates at special times.
Proverbs 7:9 says she operates “in the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night.“. The secular strange women operate in the dark and black night. The evenings are times when evil can flourish. If you are a young man, you must not be in the company of certain people at certain times. If you are in a relationship, there are certain times that you should not be with your significant other.
3) She has special dresses.
“…there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot…“ Proverbs 7:9
The Bible did not say she was a harlot, but that, she came with the dress of a harlot. If you are a Christian there are certain dresses that you are not supposed to wear. A believer ought to dress decently. Strange women often dress in suggestive and revealing ways. It is not only the dress that speaks, but their pose also says volumes. Ladies, always dress decently. Do not dress in suggestive or revealing ways.
