2 Timothy 3 Idle Spirits

2 Timothy 3:1-2

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,

2 Timothy 3:3

unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,

2 Timothy 3:4

treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

2 Timothy 3:5

holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

2 Timothy 3:6-7

For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak ( or idle) women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

(sound familar ladies? Idle/weak people are the same, regardless of gender!)

The majority of humanity is weak today! Idle in the ways of the Lord!

Know of anyone avoiding work in Christ, Pastors? πŸ˜€ (i can hear the roaring response now!) πŸ˜€

Know of anyone not overworked, in Ministry, my Sisters? πŸ˜€

These are the obvious idle-in-Christ.

There is another definition of idle. Those idle in their hearts, their spirits…in doing the works of Christ.

Those who are ‘busy’ yet ineffective, like the 2nd definition of of idle (in the above pic)

This is why practice Discernment of spirits now, when it is not dire you do so, yet!

The weaker one is in true Discernment, the more vulnerable one is to the influence & charm of the Anti-Christ when it comes. The easier it will be to be included in the majority who will be fooled, by the Anti-Christ.

Those who cannot stand now? Against the demonic attitudes/beliefs/priorities of today? Will have no defense against the Anti-Christ of soon!

What is true Discernment?

Best defined by what it isn’t, False Discernment.

Discernment is a Gift from the Holy Spirit, for every human.

Some people test for the Gift of Discernment now, being stronger in this Gift than general humanity.

All Gifts are to be used under the guidelines of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, if not! Then the Gift is used selfishly, misused, benefitting self/the devoid, not Christ!

There are False Prophets, False Preachers (Shepherds), False Teachers and those who misuse the other Gifts from the Holy Spirit.

Wake Up People!

For this prepares the soil for the devoid/the Anti-Christ and its demons.

For far too many are afraid today! Afraid to stand in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8!

“Stand Up! If you got that power!” Deitrick Haddon-Power

Some are strong in Gift(s) from the Holy Spirit, yet use them (twist them), for themselves & not Christ!

Ego, Pride, Anger, Greed/Ambition/Competition, etc (anything not of Christ), blocks the blessing, the Gift(s) of the Holy Spirit was meant to benefit, humanity.

The Gifts were never meant to be used for status, grandstanding, personal gain (in some form).

When the Gift(s) of the Holy Spirit is used properly (1 Corinthians 13:4-8), then verses like this:

Acts 4:32-35

Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.

Are accomplished without effort on our part!

The longer one waits to attempt to ‘curb’ anything not of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8? The more difficult it becomes to even try!

Meaning anyones ‘good efforts’ outside of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, will be consumed by the devoid, have no defense against the devoid, are useless!

Even though it may seem as if someone operating outside of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, may seem to benefit greatly, in the end, it was not built on Yeshua

Matthew 7:24-27

Build Your House on the Rock

24Β β€œEveryone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25Β And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26Β And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27Β And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

Phillip 24, Shemesh 1

1 Timothy 4

NASB Bible Gateway.com

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

(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

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! πŸ˜€

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! πŸ™‚

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! πŸ˜€

An unusual thing for me! A blessing from the Holy Spirit indeed!

Self-control? Without any effort on my part. πŸ˜€

i see it as the effect of my closer relationship with Yeshua! πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜€

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!” πŸ˜€

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!” πŸ˜€

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! πŸ˜€

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! πŸ˜€ 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! πŸ˜€

Some very powerful prayers happen then! πŸ˜€

i believe in the Holy Spirit overflowing out of me into my surroundings, into anyone in the vicinity!

i visualize it! πŸ˜€

One of my favorite ways of calling on the Lord! πŸ˜€

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!) πŸ˜€ Pick Me…? by…? Send Me, I’ll Go-Lecrae & Various Artists

Anywayz! Peace, joy & lots of happiness, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen! πŸ˜€

Mercy

The Good Life from Daily Bible Inspirations
https://dailybible.co/p/Hke7az58km

Do you have a good life? Is your life fulfilling and satisfying? God lays out the steps to have a good life in today’s verse.

We are to let go of our vengeance and leave it to God.

Love Mercy

Mercy is choosing to not mete out what is deserved. We are to forgive people who don’t deserve it or ask for it. We are to give second chances to those who messed up. We are to see in everyone, a sinful, learning, child of God that needs mercy.

Currently working in/at a Ministry, in which i live.

House Manager is my title and Mercy is a reoccurring theme from the Holy Spirit lately.

Dealing with those who do not know how to live with others, who do not understand the importance of it…

May the Lord give us more blessings to help us achieve such, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

(Prayers for this Ministry are very much needed! πŸ™‚ For it is so brand new, we do not even have a site yet!)

Holy Spirit keeps bringing to my mind Matthew 5:40

“If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. (from biblehub.com)

And i never deeply understood the verse so i studied it from

https://redeeminggod.com/sermons/luke/luke_6_29-30/

You say, β€œI don’t want to appear weak,” but I’ll tell you that it is only the strongest person who can take an insult and let it go.

(never actually thought about it like this, but yeah!)

(The) weak who retaliate, because they can’t take it. Only the strong roll with the punches

(Wow)

What shows more strength? Making your witty but cutting remark, or rebuilding a relationship?

(Yeshua advises) Stand up for yourselves, defy your masters, assert your humanity; but don’t answer the oppressor in kind. Find a new, third way that is neither cowardly submission nor violent.

When someone insults you, let them insult you again if it will bring peace.

(this one i am working on, meaning it is difficult) πŸ™‚

Be someone who is willing to take the blows. Someone who refuses to retaliate. Someone who serves rather than slaps.

Now this i understand! Resonates with me.

If there really is a disagreement, and it’s hard to determine who is wrong and who is right, and what sort of restitution is necessary – be the bigger person, be the peacemaker and give them what they want. Give them more than what they want.

(There is a section i do not agree with (on the site) for it is against the Lord & they are not my enemy either)

He (Yeshua) is telling impoverished debtors, who have nothing left but the clothes on their backs, to use the system against itself.

God wants us to do everything within our power to restrain evil. But it is not our responsibility to retaliate.

sometimes, it is to your benefit spiritually to help the thief and give him what he wants and more.

When Jean Valjean is arrested by the police, the Bishop makes it appear that he gave the silverware to Jean, and gives him two silver candlesticks as well. It is this act of kindness that causes Jean Valjean to turn from a life of stealing to a life of helping other people.

All I’m saying is that if there is someone in your life or my life who genuinely has a need, Jesus says it is our responsibility to meet that need. Don’t let people rob you, but if they try to take things from you out of desperation, you might want to let them have what they want, and give them a little extra.

The issue is not property rights, but the enemy’s eternal life. Do not chase the thief to kill him. Chase him to save him

you should give generously to the one in need, even if he never pays you back (Deuteronomy 15:7-11).

Elohim says, “You give that person the resources he needs,and I will take care of your needs.”

(These are just copy/paste from the article/website, to understand one better go to the link for this section (understanding verse Matthew 5:40)

The Louder Voices

i have acquired an Atheist follower.

Sampling a few of that person’s recent blogs, i ask myself, “Will this person use my articles as fodder?”

“Maybe i should follow them too!”

Naw, very bad idea.

Why? Because then i would be responding or assuming, much.

i do not desire to define or spread my faith through dissertation of someone else’s opinion.

i shake my head reading some of it, thinking, ‘i do not want to define my beliefs by attacking someone elses.’

Thinking, ‘Science is full of theories, that have become ‘facts’.

Science ignores the vast majority of things it finds, that lean toward proving Elohim’s existence.

Whenever science popularizes anything that those who believe in Elohim use, then this ‘discovered’ thing gets vilified and/or goes back into obscurity.

I find it interesting that many Atheists are legalists, grammatical ones too.

I joined a site, that spoke of discussion on many topics.

I joined with a measure of excitement, until i realized, very quickly the Atheistic leanings of the site.

(Hmmm, i wonder what Liberal Atheists & Conservative Atheist conversations are like? (for i run across more conservative ones)

i removed the app to the site, long time later i unsubscribed my emails from it, making sure i deleted my account.

i may have attracted attention from that quarter.

i personally was looking forward to the debate.

i remember posting on the site, that my belief, “Is not logical. It is something that cannot be debated. Something a logical mind cannot comprehend.”

A ‘proof’ not sustainable with logic. πŸ™‚

Hallelujah! πŸ˜€

How can one disrespect a person’s belief, yet respect the person?

Beliefs are an integral part of humanity.

i believe it is impossible to disrespect a person’s beliefs and respect the person.

(So then, are we disrespecting ourselves when we knowingly disrespect anything about another?)

Question is: Who & what deems disrespect?

Is like asking what is proof?

What is beauty?

The eye of the beholder.

My eye beholds beauty. πŸ˜€

The Holy Spirit teaches respect.

i am learning to trust what He says.

i am learning to believe what He says.

i am learning what Love is. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

What’s Love got to do with it? (Tina Turner?)

That song speaks of human love, not 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

We argue, we debate, uneccessarily.

That is unhealthy.

Assumptions and confrontational positions. Unhealthy.

i do not desire to live, think, breathe, talk that way, anymore.

The Lord, the Holy Spirit is removing the desire to think evil, by assuming, reacting to assumptions.

The Holy Spirit shows me other ways, insights, mercy & grace, beyond my understanding.

Seen as patience, as peace.

i watch the litigation, the speech & see the spirit behind it.

The purpose, how it could have came to be, how Elohim see’s it.

(i see the agitation, unpeace)

i remember me, B.C.

How at 6, is different than 3.

How irrelevant, rather the desire to debate, is leaving me.

Better understanding of The Louder Voices.

A matter of perception.

Only the Holy Spirit can change that.

i am learning to lean on that.

For i ask for help with my unbelief.

Raised in falsity.

False Beliefs, hypocrisy.

Learning to be more true.

To ‘not sweat’ what other’s see.

Critically, blindly.

(Helps with fawners too!) πŸ˜€

How can one not be deceptive, always doing what others do?

Saying what others say?

These things called societal/cultural laws.

Based on hypocrisy in & of itself?

Busy accusing, reacting to accusations, as if they are true.

Just because the accuser has many voices, causing a roar.

One voice, ends all that.

My job is to praise You, through the good & the bad.

Remembering that?

While being accused?

πŸ˜€

Because praise is what i do.

Try it! πŸ˜€

Who would think such a simple thing, would be so huge?

What do you do for a living?

Praise You.

You don’t do anything!

πŸ˜€

Yes i do.

Lots of it.

My favorite thing to do! πŸ˜€

Praising You! πŸ˜€

Freedom!

i see You smiling down on me, whenever i remember my purpose is, to praise & thank You. πŸ˜€

He becomes the Loudest Voice.

This is not a debatable thing.

No desire to partipate in such, when i see You smiling at me! πŸ˜€

Love You Holy Spirit! TY! πŸ˜€

(i feel sorry for those who cannot do this.

Focusing on Christ, like this! πŸ˜€

Opposition melts away, internally (eternally).

Something i have always done, now magnified!

Praise!

May i spread my hands wider as time goes on!

In spirit & in truth.

Something not seen much, via words, Atheists.

The Holy Spirit is felt, beyond words.

Anything i could ever say is insufficient.

My spirit, my heart says more than my brain ever could.

Illogical things. πŸ˜€

Praise is what i do! πŸ˜€

May you experience the Joy of the Lord, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!)

πŸ˜€

Thomas 14, Yeshua Fire

The Sun of Righteousness

Sun of Righteousness from Daily Bible Inspirations
https://dailybible.co/p/H1gePGRc7z

On our own, we cannot produce this light. Only the Son, who is righteous and holy, can produce this light of hope in us. Our role in the process is to let the light shine; casting its glow on everyone around us.

We cannot stay good, stay loving, be truly nice, gentle and kind, any good thing, without Yeshua!

It is becoming more and more impossible to do so now, more than ever.

Signaling Yeshua’s comeback! πŸ˜€

The time for passing is over!

Truthfulness in one’s heart & actions, is due.

Hypocrisy of any type will be revealed, unlike ever before.

The time to choose Yeshua is closing.

False Pastors, Prophets, Christians, are becoming more hard hearted, and more blind, trapped, by the curse of the Lord.

While those of us who truly follow Christ? Those who truly listen & hear?

It is getting easier!

Meaning, what we use to do, in Yeshua’s holy name? Goes farther than it use too! πŸ˜€

The Righteous will grow stronger as the darkness deepens for others! πŸ™‚

We will ‘see’ each other! Because 1> against a thousand ( http://biblehub.com/joshua/23-10.htm), 2> turns aside 5 thou or more! πŸ˜€ (cannot find the verse!)

So it will be the best of times and the worst of times, simultaneously.

We will walk in His Presence while many fall, to the left & right of us.

This is why it is important to increase our strength in the Lord.

Up the power of Our Shield, now!

Upgrade in Christ by being open to downloads from the Holy Spirit.

The Sun, that orb in the sky, transmits many things to everything on Earth.

Yeshua, the Son does so as well.

No one is good but Elohim/Yeshua/the Holy Spirit.

A darkness is coming, that only Yeshua can clear.

A deeper one.

Strengthen your connection with Christ through the Holy Spirit, by deepening your relationship with Yeshua.

Practicing your ‘hearing’ (guidance/listening) of the Holy Spirit, now.

For others will not see how far off course they have gone.

For the Holy Spirit corrects those He loves.

Those who love Him (or are learning to), heed this correction, subsequently, reversing the curse of hard heartedness.

Our hearts respond to the Son, like a blossoming flower! πŸ˜€

In Yeshua’s holy name, amen πŸ˜€
