How it pay's to know the difference between God's Word and a false lie disguised as truth and a fading bestseller.
King Solomon who wrote many of the Proverbs said, "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." A brother is made for times of trouble.In many cases it's the friend who will cover you and not blab to the world or on facebook you were human, you made a mistake.
God's word tells us to protect our lips from listening to the person who is like a tidal wave that soaks us on our way to the gala..after we've spent a fortune at the salon, then laughs at us, takes a pic and posts it on facebook.
Don't even read these things. They are not in jest, they are the result of deceitful, angry and bruised people who justify bad behavior.
Proverbs 12:16 " A prudent (wise, shrewd, discreet) man ignores an insult (i.e.to speak to or treat with disrespect or scornful abuse.)
Proverbs 20:19 " He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets; therefore, associate Not with him who talks too freely."
What ever happened to Kindness? Thank you for existing and gifting us with you're presence. You heal our brokenness and comfort our broken hearts.
Meanness is rampant and sign of the time scripture talks about. Scripture tells us to mind our business. I believe King Solomon was a very wise man who Loved God and came to great revelations about relationships.
I love how David replied and there is a message here.
I Samuel 17:45 "...You come to me with a sword, a spear and a javelin, but I come to you in the Name of the Lord of Hosts!"
I have memorized it and repeat it (silently )when I am verbally assaulted. There isn't a reason to reply to people who do this and as instructed in God's Word to ignore it. One, they do not understand they reap what they sow. Two, they are hurt people, like us all but God tells us to not retaliate, that He will vindicate us.
Satan will use offense to jab at our emotional trigger points. Here, self-control is difficult but you will see simply walking away is very productive.
Each time you do this, it deflates the situation, at least they may follow you, but you will be blameless. You are in God's eyes and will be rewarded for you're obedience to His instruction.
Yes, there are reason's we should study God's word. It's more than what you think. It's God's living presence cleansing and renewing our spirit and upliftment of his amazing presence.
Learn to ignore offense. The wise King David did this and God vindicated and delivered him from the enemy. God says, Do this and I will do That! In fact, blessing is on God's children. Scripture tells us the meaning of "blessing" is Happy, prosperous and to be envied. Yes, it's no wonder demon's despise us. Satan is not the heir to the Royal Kingdom of God.
Life will continue to deliver offense on a silver platter in many forms, some disguised by twisting the subject to slander and maliciousness. God abhors this and if done to one of His children...look out!
Emotional attacks may be on the rise but we don't sink down by giving them attention. Clarity is certainly shifting our "vision" and as believer's in Christ, we are not to judge what we see but to intercede in prayer for the blessings on the blind in spirit. Bless those who are against us! Yes. Praying for our enemies to be blessed means God can rescue them from satan's deceptive lures and they can be shown the love of Christ.
People don't want to be Christian's because of most Christians. I didn't and I prefer to say I love Jesus because He's awesome and write about my testimony. People need to sense the spirit of God in our presence. People are watching our witness.
We have God's work to focus on and He will give us everything we need to complete His work as we keep our eyes on Him.
I John 4:3-6 "Do not put faith in every spirit but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God."
John 15:16 "You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you, that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing that you're fruit may be lasting, so that whatever you ask the father in My Name, He may give it to you!"
People are seeing clearly and turning from the deceptive charmer's who steal words from the bible in attempt to create their own society that suits their own "agenda". The scripture refer's to these as False Prophets who teach the message of appeasement for Popularity rather than the entire truth.
Our teaching is by our actions and words. Our actions backed by the power of the Holy Spirit convinces and draws people to Christ, to the Heavenly realms that exist on this earth plane through God's Supernatural Presence.
Scripture tells us God will chose and draw people into his love, but we live as consistently obedient to the voice of God and pray for the lost souls to enter in to the gates of heaven through His Spirit while here on earth.
But false teacher's pick and chose to appease the fleshly desires ensnaring with allure of appearance and seduction. They live and teach as pleases them rather than as God instructs.
Scripture tells us in the last days this will happen and will turn away from God as they pass through like a checklist one deceptive lie after another.
This Is a world of light and darkness, good and evil, heaven and hell. People are falling into a traps that seduce their appetite for sin.
I believe false prophets are ever more present to whitewash over sin and delude God's people and yes, those who are Christians who have declared Jesus in their life.
I have been asking for the Fire of the Holy Spirit to speak through me and to devote my entire life to Christ. I encourage you to do the same. Don't dilute the magnificence of God's indwelling in you're life. Dedicate all that you do to glorify our amazing Lord.
