v1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,
men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy 4:3
1 Timothy 4:3
(Catholic Priests are forbidden from marriage, ooo! & Lent! (abstaining from meat, etc. or does it mean more long term moments?
Everyone hopefully understands the pressure of NOT participating in Lent, is seen as an evil thing)
(for too many look at other people’s faith/beliefs, check self first! (me? My intimate family, the dwelling i live in? the Church i go to? The faith i claim & others see me as? Check these things first before automatically checking others.)
Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. Until I come, give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching. Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed on you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery.
1 Timothy 4:12-14
1 Timothy 4:12-14
Some have never had prophetic utterance or the laying of hands.
i do recommend the laying of hands by someone currently walking in the Holy Spirit!
One is baptized in the Holy Spirit this way. It can happen straight from Yeshua Himself, to you, yet Elohim works best through other people.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit manifest the most around other people.
The Gifts are for others. The individual who has the gift is raised up, when the gift(s) are used via the Holy Spirit, for someone else! 😀
The gifts are to be done in the way of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
Difficult to do when angry, bitter, vengeful, hurting, etc.
That is why i tell the Lord i cannot handle Your Anger! 🙂
Most of the time i cannot tell where His Anger is and mine, together.
i have been experiencing people doubting me, believing my motivations were not good, thinking i lied or did something dishonest.
It didn’t bother me! 😀
An unusual thing for me! A blessing from the Holy Spirit indeed!
Self-control? Without any effort on my part. 😀
i see it as the effect of my closer relationship with Yeshua! 😀 He knows i didn’t do it and this proves that is all that matters to me.
i didn’t even blink, pause on it, nor did i spend lots of time thinking about it (like i have a tendency to do at the end of a day)
Being accused didn’t bother me! i’ve really grown in the Lord! He is truly protecting me. 😀
This morning, another incident happened, that may be connected to other malicious acts of late.
i was angry, i chose to play gospel hip-hop, etc at a very high volume instead of acting out in anger!
i found myself saying, “I need You to touch someone else Lord! For i do not need to!” Touch Me by Deitrich Haddon
“I got no reason to fear i got Jesus on my side!” I Got That by Anthony Brown &…
“You Can’t Stop Me!” Andy Mineo “My biggest enemy is me, and even i can’t stop me!” 😀
That song brought it home, so i said (out loud), “You will NOT stop me from being merciful, from being kind, compassionate, happy, at peace!” 😀
Everytime we choose Yeshua over our self, our own fleshy desires, gives us victory! Strengthens us.
Everytime we take our worries to Yeshua (instead of to another person), we are asking Christ to handle it for us!
We learn to let Him do so! We are admitting our weaknesses.
We are leaning on the Lord! (That fall back exercise!)
Then we get to see His Glory, we get to see His hand in things. He enjoys being ‘Our Knight In Shinning Armour’! Our Champion! 😀
i can see Him smiling, glowing, enjoying this opportunity.
He loves us. He knows what is best for us!
i am grateful not to have bitterness ruin my heart! For anger not to rule my day, my thoughts, my actions.
And it is Bible Study tonight! 😀 Hallelujah!
Combined with House Meeting! Our first one all together, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!
Been saying that a lot too…(in Yeshua’s name, amen!)
i am a Praiser! 😀
Some very powerful prayers happen then! 😀
i believe in the Holy Spirit overflowing out of me into my surroundings, into anyone in the vicinity!
i visualize it! 😀
One of my favorite ways of calling on the Lord! 😀
He tells/told me to continue being myself! This is what i do!
This is NOT a common thing here on the westside, especially in the PNW!
i will be that one!
Isaiah is back home ya’ll! :-D(YouTube won’t allow me to go to my playlists via cellular data only! Must be connected to wifi to change profiles!) :-p (For a certain song popped into my head! Aaargh!) 😀 Pick Me…? by…? Send Me, I’ll Go-Lecrae & Various Artists
Anywayz! Peace, joy & lots of happiness, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen! 😀
Phillip 13, Shemesh 1
