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˜€

Folly and Wickedness of Men

Psalm 14

1 The fool has said in his heart, β€œThere is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds;

There is no one who does good.

2 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men

To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God.

3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.

4 Do all the workers of wickedness not know, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call upon the Lord?

5 There they are in great dread,

For God is with the righteous generation.

6 You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted, But the Lord is his refuge.

7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!

When the Lord restores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.
