1 Corinthians 5:1
It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father’s wife. 2 [a]You have become [b]arrogant and [c]have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.
(There is much immorality being done today and we should mourn them instead of hatred. Why have hatred for another’s immorality when our anger over it proves that we are JUST as immoral?
Fake sorrow is not what is spoken of here. Sorrow to be seen by others, is not required. The Lord sees what is in our hearts and if one’s heart does not feel this way when we see another atrocity committed (fornication we turn a blind eye to, most days, see it as insignificant?) then we have some repentance to do and are easy prey for falling into the same trap.
I see the negative soul ties created with fornication now, more than ever.
Recently i have had to deal with another ‘Christian’ urging me to the nearest church-
“For it is such a shame for someone who has so much to offer! So many gifts (and whatnot)…”
And then the person said, “I just want you to be loved!”
I started laughing then!
“Lol,” (i said) “He is! and I am!”
“Well i just hope you have the family seal…”
I almost asked what that meant…
“I am the Daughter of the God of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac. The Bride of His Son, Yeshua, the Messiah and a Disciple of the Holy Spirit.” my response.
Then this ‘Christian” said, “No one is questioning your identity….?!”
Family Seal? Really?!!!
then i said, “and anyone who doubts this, is blind.”
“Well i see that this is a sensitive subject for you, so let’s drop it…?!”
Typical! So typical!
“It is not a tender subject for me!” my response.
This is what i mean. Tired of this attitude.
People say that the church is the people, yet not acting on what is obviously parroted.
See, if we had the courage to stand with the Messiah despite how other ‘Christians’ make us ashamed to be associated with them…
We wouldn’t have them to blame for our lack of whatever, right?
Example: “You have not even cared about my…..(fill in with whatever!)”
So busy reacting to this statement (in anger or shock)
Did you recognize this person caring about your…..(whatever?)
Think about it.
The Messiah makes leaders, not followers.
Maturity comes with The Father (now i understand why people act like spoiled brats!)
Like This is Us?
I remember a time when people had loyalty to products…no matter what was said about the company, they were going down with the ship.
Now a fictional show, does fictional stuff, with a real product (Sue them Crock Pot, Sue This Is Us! Get a settlement for all these ignorant folk throwing out their Crock Pots because of the show? (give me a break!)
If i stopped using/eating, whatever things that had some type of evil associated with it?
Then i would die. Have no shelter, not breathe for that matter (for the air is toxic!) 😀
I decided to BELIEVE that NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER!
To actually ACT like it!
For just about everything will kill us…the Lord, Elohim, Yeshua, is the reason we are NOT dead and He is the only one who can heal us.
So i LOOK for Elohim in EVERYTHING now (for what you focus on multiplies)
This is an example of USING our faith.
Actually try putting a verse into practice!
Choose an easy one!
(yes, there are verses, taken out of context that will get you thrown in jail today-Yet THAT would be YOUR CHOICE!)
Start taking responsibility for ANYTHING in your life not to your liking!
Evaluate it based on the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
There are those who are afraid to leave the church, for instance?
When did the building become our God?
To see another person not attached to a building, brings doubt about that person?
If a church is just a gathering place for Christians,
if the first churches were Christians gathering by the river (see Acts)
then anywhere ‘Christians’ gather is church…is a small group.
There is SO MUCH pressure to JOIN a church, it is ridiculous!
We are like the military during draft time!
Elohim, i have worked very hard to listen to You and not others.
I am more concerned with what You think of me than what others tell me You think of me.
I wanted to know for myself. Hear You myself!
(Everyone can know and hear Elohim, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit for themselves! This is what we should all strive to do.)
I looked at it this way…
No matter what i do it is wrong, right?
For i tried it all, against, for and with.
I was still being hounded, harassed.
Since i have decided to find others like myself, (understanding that myself is difficult to see, behaving like someone else) the harassment ceases!
Becomes less, doesn’t bother me, like it use to. (for who doesn’t want to be included?)
i rather eat alone, than eat in strife.
Like a romantic relationship, its not suppose to hurt this much!
A higher standard.
We meet online. Church.
We greet each other, obeying and church!
We praise/worship the Lord together…enjoying a gospel song…
Whether its 5 min or longer…
How much time are we spending in communication with the Lord?
Listening to others speak of Him instead of listening to Him ourselves?
Following what we believe? Instead of what we SHOULD believe?
In my opinion this is why so many throw up their hands, give up entirely and choose The World over the Church…
I choose the Messiah over both.
May more and more of you do the same, in Yeshua’s Holy name, amen!
