Been noticing a trend (theme) from the Holy Spirit.
1. Let Go and Let God
(heard this many times B.C.)
a.) if you do not forgive you shall not be forgiven. Matthew 6:14-15
b) Tell/Confess any division between you and God (Elohim)
1b. Anger at Elohim
2b. Not forgiving Elohim
3c. Elohim betrays? Never! 🙂
3. Bless those who curse you
(Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:28)
a.) React/Respond unlike the World
b.) Anyone who thinks, acts/believes evil of /towards you, bless them! (including thyself)
(people who seek to hurt me in some way (crossing the street some Male Caucasian seeking to impress the female he was with, said, “See i go like this…” and put up his middle finger in my direction-Which took me several minutes later to process it even happened, cause my mind was focused elsewhere!0 (Downtown Seattle, homeless, suitcase on wheels & a couple of bags…i have noticed certain Caucasian Females who step right in front of me, too close mind you. (AND! snide comments like,”They are taking over.” ,”If that were me, i’d scream.) Bless them all! 😀
Then i discovered some additional steps in the book John, son of Thunder, by Ellen Gunderson Traylor
4. Do good to those who hate you
Had a couple of subs and some salads i would never get around to eating before they ended up in worse condition.
i offered it to the lady (and others) who always has to be first in line and do not argue with her, etc, because the staff in the shelter will even make up a rule to cause you discomfort, to get kicked out, etc…in retaliation.
That was a few days ago.
Last night she offered me Maple Doughnut bars from the food bank.
This morning i discovered they were moldy!
i prayed for her.
5. pray for those who use you despitefully and persecute you.
(Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:28)
Do these things so that you will be Children of Elohim, Children of the Holy Spirit!
So that Yeshua will ‘know’ you and others will know you as a Son or Daughter of Elohim, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen! 😀
(someone gave me an NIV (for i am keeping my Leather Bound NASB in storage and now my phone is dead? Typical!
i do not know how to keep a Bible and not worry about how i treat it. Having it be someone else’s first, is helpful.
The fact it is not brand new, etc.
When this 6’6 250 something Puerto Rican complexion, hair and all black guy, came up to me, to continue our ‘communication’ of last night, i pulled out my bible instead.
This happened 2 more times, till i didn’t pull it out and ended up following him somewhere.
Point is, another disappointment!
Another opportunity (a better one, a stronger one) to turn him down and keep it that way, tonight! In Yeshua’s holy name i pray! (and pray for me please! i soooo, need all the help i can get! For the spirit is willing, but my flesh…my flesh is extremely weak! (the Lord is increasing it incrementally, hallelujah!) 😀
