Matthew 5:21-22

ft Matthew 5:21-22 The fact that we are being persecuted proves that we have been faithful; faithless people would be unnoticed.

NASB Living Application Study Bible Β©2000

I remember a Pastor’s Wife saying, “i don’t have any persecution.”

No tribulations.

i just looked at her.

Not having the words, not having Matthew 5:11 in my head then.

“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”

This is not something that happens occasionally.

Not something to look back upon, as if it is behind you.

It is something that happens, you wish and pray would stop, it hurts so bad (ie: David verses…).

Persecution, crucifixion, same difference.

More levels? More crucifixions!

Longer ones, deeper ones.

Scars.

The Old Man.

The lives you had before.

For you are indeed a new person …

Each time.

Resurrected.

Not something you will ever desire another to go through.

You, yourself, do not want to do it again.

Yet, you will.

You know, or will know, you will.

Willing lie down in the Olive Press.

The Ark.

That ship headed into the Perfect Storm.

Why?

Transformation is a bytch! πŸ˜€

Yet i choose my death!

Crucifixion

over my soul dying, any day! πŸ™‚

For that pain has no end.

That numb, watching myself-can’t-stop-myself bs, pain.

Living hell.

Vs Living Heaven?

Walking Dead vs Flying Righteousness? πŸ˜€

Peace, Love & Mustard Greens! πŸ˜€

In Yeshua’s holy name, amen. πŸ˜€

Job 17:4

β€œFor You have kept their heart from understanding,

Therefore You will not exalt them.

Those who are hardhearted, selfish, close-minded. Who refuse to listen to hear. (A particular trial/revelation at this moment.) Those who refuse to be merciful (rather channel mercy) and forgiving.

You will not be exalted. (For you refuse to exalt Elohim in how you behave)

(Wow! You, Elohim, refuse to purify them, cleanse them! And they believe they are already above, having no idea how much higher they could go.)

(And showing me why I have & continue to rise in rank, My Commander 😚)

V5 β€œHe who informs against friends for a share of the spoil,

(Many tell on (gossip about) people they ‘act-like’ friends with…for what? Kudos? Fame, of some sort?)

V6β€œBut He has made me a byword of the people,

V6 And I am one at whom men spit.

And the word is Christian! 😁

V8 the innocent will stir up himself against the godless.

Ain’t innocent no more (about some things)! (We learn 2 Timothy 2:4 very well)

V10 β€œBut come again all of you now,

For I do not find a wise man among you.

(Grammar Nazis? Whatz up!) πŸ˜„

V11 My days are past, my plans are torn apart,

Even the wishes of my heart.

See! Ya’ll really believe what you say or do, will change me? In what I say or do? PLEAZE! Elohim…what He has done, to me, is worst than you can even imagine! Let alone DO!

πŸ˜‚

So you think your criticism can, does…? Overshadow His?

Lol! I mean, I sit here, obviously suffering, from/because of obedience to Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, Elohim, Himself!

And you believe anything you say, can even be heard, over THAT? πŸ˜†

You think, you can chastise me better than Him?

🀣LMBO

Because you choose to take on the job of the Holy Spirit, one He did not grant permission for you to do…

Because you refuse to stop chastising me, in my pain (you refuse to help or stop).

I do indeed regret to remind you…

As you have done, so shall happen to you.

(and not by me, by the way)

Only the enemy behaves this way. The devoid.

12 β€œThey make night into day, saying,

β€˜The light is near,’ in the presence of darkness.

(Yes! The more unmerciful you are, the more, Elohim brightens my day! Hallelujah! 😁)

The more I am grateful Thou art humbling me! (Crucifixion humbles ya, big time!)

Alhumdulillah!
