Refuge from Treachery and Oppression

Psalm 62

1 My soul waits in silence for God only;

From Him is my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 How long will you assail a man,

That you may murder him, all of you,

Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

4 They have counseled only to thrust him down from his high position;They delight in falsehood; They bless with their mouth,But inwardly they curse

5 My soul, wait in silence for God only,

For my hope is from Him.

6 He only is my rock and my salvation,

My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

7 On God my salvation and my glory rest;

The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.

9 Men of low degree are only vanity and men of rank are a lie; In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.

10 Do not trust in oppressionAnd do not vainly hope in robbery;If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.

In the balances they go up;They are together lighter than breath.

11 Once God has spoken;Twice I have heard this:That power belongs to God;

12 And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, For You recompense a man according to his work.

Hallelujah and Amen! 😁

The Exception Does Not Rule

The Exception Does Not Rule from Daily Bible Inspirations

by John Micalak
Inspiration BibleΒ 

Some people won’t swim in the ocean for fear of sharks.

They hear reports of shark attacks and, despite knowing that such attacks are by far the exception and not the rule, they still won’t go in.

Some people look at obedience to God this way.

we hear about the exceptions. Kate is such a good person, but the economy just bankrupted her. Jeremy ate right and exercised, but he was still taken by cancer. What’s the point of living right, when life can still treat you so unfairly?

these are the exceptions, not the rule. Most often, when you live for God, your life will be stable and prosperous. Just because this doesn’t happen for everyone shouldn’t be a reason not to try.

(The exception has no authority!)

Exceptions for Evil

“Oh it isn’t really evil, it isn’t good, it isn’t that bad.”

Excuses

“Good” Exceptions?

Those 7% who read the Bible everday, who at least routinely do so.

Now narrow that 7% (a guesstimation, from memory, of a sermon heard a few Sundays ago), by eliminating Legalists from the 7%.

This is my ‘new’ plumbline of trust in ANY relationship, primarily romantic ones. My new guage, my line-drawn-in-the-sand thing.

This is how trust will be established, based on how much you love the Word!

For someone said they love the Word, love bible Study…

Lead bible Study as a matter of fact.

Yet their actions showed they enjoyed the opportunity to dominate conversationly!

Angry at being interrupted for any reason.

Never apologizes for being wrong.

So now this person has begun weakening the Word itself!

Showing flawed faith, lack of.

Going down in flames fast, hasn’t repented for it yet!

For there is no humbleness, no regret, just grumbling/dislike of being called out!

i am/was angry at being subjected to such weak authority!

Kept asking Elohim why?!

Today He showed me how i am weak in my authority!

How i make excuses for evil! πŸ˜―πŸ˜¦πŸ€”

When i continue an unequally yoked relationship!

i make excuses like,”Oh, well i remember my B.C.!”

or “They haven’t known You long; They don’t know You like i do; They haven’t felt Love, true Love, You; They obviously do not have a closer-relationship with You, etc.

It is not their fault, they don’t really know the full enormity of the situation, as i know i do not, i use to not understand things too! etc.

Timing is important.

Also, i wouldn’t react they way they are, even B.C.! (a ‘good’ exception!)

i must stop being Ahab, Saul even.

Passive, in this area. For THIS IS NOT MERCY!

i have allowed evil exceptions to rule over me!

i can be merciful in my reaction to the person who commited such a faux pau!

Yet, the consequences are still the same from Christ, regardless!

i just add myself to that list, making excuses for them, basically pleading their case.

A habit formed from abuse as a child…?

i am no longer a baby in Christ! Recognized such by others! Hallelujah! (i have graduated!) πŸ˜€

My 6th year! And it passed w/out me even celebrating it!

(Well i did leave Illinois at that time…)

My new criteria in ‘dating’, (since i give trust too easily) is bible study!

It will show & prove our incompatibility, quickly, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

i will learn to trust only those who enjoy it, with me, inshallah!

In Yeshua’s holy name, i pray. Amen.

Nowhere to Go… But Up from Daily Bible Inspirations

https://dailybible.co/p/r1-l3romhM

Their predicament was no accident. God had specifically ordered Moses to have the Israelites camp there. He had given them no way out.

Perhaps there are times in our lives when we get walled in, when God leads us to a corner and we are untrained and unprepared to deal with the oncoming trouble. We have nowhere to go but up.

Take your fear as an opportunity to grow your faith upward.

What does the Bible say about gossip?

What does the Bible say about gossip?
β€” Read on www.google.com/amp/s/www.gotquestions.org/amp/gossip-Bible.html

Answer:Β The Hebrew word translated β€œgossip” in the Old Testament is defined as β€œone who reveals secrets, one who goes about as a talebearer or scandal-monger.” A gossiper is a person who has privileged information about people and proceeds to reveal that information to those who have no business knowing it. Gossip is distinguished from sharing information in two ways:

1.Β Intent. Gossipers often have the goal of building themselves up by making others look bad and exalting themselves as some kind of repositories of knowledge.

2.Β The type of information shared. Gossipers speak of the faults and failings of others, or reveal potentially embarrassing or shameful details regarding the lives of others without their knowledge or approval. Even if they mean no harm, it is still gossip.

In the book of Romans, Paul reveals the sinful nature and lawlessness of mankind, stating how God poured out His wrath on those who rejected His laws. Because they had turned away from God’s instruction and guidance, He gave them over to their sinful natures. The list of sins includes gossips and slanderers (Romans 1:29b-32).Β 

Romans 1:18-22

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Professing to be wise, they became fools,

(continues in actual idol making/fashioning)

The Gift of Knowledge, as i am discovering, is being able to ‘see’ & ‘hear’ Elohim, it is like the gift of understanding, many Prophets have this.

i have no ‘special’ knowledge, nor is there any i claim, and i share what i ‘know’. i am very open about it.

i am very open about my problems too.

There are things the Holy Spirit has me refrain from saying.

There are times i have disobeyed that.

i apologize for speaking the language of complaints & gossip, negativity.

i desire to be free of reproach/blame, yet that is not always the case.

i have been raised in a world full of such negative speech, i asked & continually ask for help, just like Isaiah:

Isaiah 6:5

WoeΒ isΒ me! for I am undone; because IΒ amΒ a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. (KJV for those who squabble over the Word, unrighteously-legalists)

i am sad to not be free of reproach in what i say, in what i have blogged, for i have been raised in a world of unclean lips…

People desire to rebuke & even curse me for things i have said.

They do not see how they are united in believing me to be evil, of evil intent.

As a man thinketh, so is he.

Many years i have never understood, never thought evil of another, innocent thinking,

i am sad (& angry) that i can now ‘see’ evil, i never before understood.

(i have been without the Daily Maintenance from Common Sense (Pastor, i pray that you listen & heed Tim Morrow, in relation to Kidney problems…for i too would prefer to die following/using the natural things Elohim has made for us, than these man-made machines and drugs (so called medicine).

(Being without the Daily’s, from Common Sense, has my mind fumbling, my speech, my typing, etc)

Yet even in my iniquity, like you said Pastor, those in Christ are trying to get out of it.

i am grateful that even though some see their evil reflected in me, they see Christ too!

Those who continue to perceive me as opposition or ‘disturbing’.

Yeah, i did bloody surgery.

i spoke up.

i shined light on a darkness that is in many churches (not just yours Pastor)

i am here, i blog how i navigate these things, most do not want spoken of…

Yet remain in Christ, remain with the Holy Spirit.

Like you said Pastor, if you don’t like how i stood up, then do it better! πŸ˜€

i seriously doubt you can.

i desire to learn to rebuke in Love.

Hurts really bad, doesn’t it?

You, Pastor, recognized & partially admitted the truth of what i said, by being contrite about it, hallelujah.

Anyone who bothers to research previous posts, a few years of them by the way,

Would remember me pointing out my own faults.

In the same article that the Pastor claims i gossiped about him in, i point out that my focus was on negativity, not Yeshua (tears come into my eyes now, up again, lack of sleep, night #2, remembering Rest, Peace. Matthew 14, Shemesh 1, Sunday)

The majority of the article is refocusing on Christ.

Most cannot handle having a light shined on their problems, intense light, even gentle loving light on a growth use to darkness, can seem very harsh!

Yet, i do more wrong being silent about these trials & tribulations, crosses no one else wants to bear.

Except i asked for the assignments no one else wanted to do!

“Send me! I’ll go!”

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, HereΒ amΒ I; send me.

So, here i am, reluctantly, like Jonah (which is why i stay…too many years in that whale will do that to you), sad, like Jeremiah, asking for Elohim’s backloaded (backed up, stagnated, constipated, going septic) requests like Isaiah! πŸ˜€

Lately i have been shaking my head, knowing that the day of regretting my Isaiah moment would come, one day, being now.

Yet i grit my teeth, plant my feet and my hands (Sprinter stance), and shoot out that gate, a willing Thoroughbred with the Holy Spirit as my jockey! πŸ˜€ πŸ‡

Team Jesus! πŸ˜€

Didst thou thinketh that one was above reproach?

That Elohim wouldn’t send someone to warn you?

Be grateful He went through the trouble, a little late getting to you because you didn’t want to hear it!

Shut folk down for trying!

So ya’ll get me!

Shouting it from Social Media, like Jonah…

Cause i didn’t want this job, Exhortation.

Knowing the opposition, knowing my faults would be pointed out in return.

i learned many years ago, on the school playground, is:

The best way to stop gossip, bullying because of my faults (& theirs)?

Is to beat them to the punch!

Gossip, slander, etc, loses its effectiveness, endpoint, purpose,

When i grab the mike and yell it to the whole world first!

Effective even after someone else gossips or slanders you.

The louder one tells on oneself, the more people you are willing to yell it to?

πŸ˜€

i am so NOT ashamed!

So folks shame tactics don’t work on me!

For i am a new breed! πŸ˜€

Something never before seen or heard!

See how you mumbled your repentance?

i always up the ante!

Crank that speaker/amplifier up to earsplitting feedback!

Put it on repeat and start scratching a beat!

i’ve been asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the most embarrassing thing about myself i can think of…

He said no & reminds me i already have! πŸ˜€

No one is perfect, yet there are far too many who focus on others and never speak of their own faults.

i ain’t that one!

Never have been, hallelujah! πŸ˜€

Definitely a strange occurrance, eh?

That is i! πŸ˜€

Very freeing, to expose ones ‘dark creatures’ to the light before anyone else can! πŸ˜€

i pray to become more & more open to the guidance (rebukes and all!) of the Holy Spirit, sooner & sooner, faster & faster, in Yeshua’s holy name, amen!

One right-use-ness against a thousand! πŸ˜€

Do you have a thousand people in your first service? πŸ˜€

Make not the mistake of those before you.

i pray we all be better than Nineveh, by urgently teaching, pressing into the children, our mistakes, our faults, somehow conveying humbleness, saving them from becoming the same place in Nahum’s time.

For we have not truly repented/learned, if we are not desperate to save future generations from…

Is that it?

Tis not seen as that bad?

Not seen as the curse it is?

(Every word slices me too)

(For the truth is that way)

i speak nothing that comes not back on me.

No one is above reproach.

All my life i have had the Gift of Exhortation, so my skin is a lot tougher than it seems.

it takes courage to appear weak.

Without desire to trap anyone.

i trust Christ enough to appear, inconsequential.

To appear soft or easy.

to appear so flawed…

Only those who chose to hang on despite not understanding (confusion)

in their doubt, they push away doubt, for life, for Christ (reading advice from my own fingertips is Restoring me! πŸ˜€ Again, hallelujah! Matthew 14, Shemesh 1)

Tis why the Lord keeps blessing me, despite you believing/hoping/desiring otherwise for me.

i keep praying, hoping, desiring blessings for you (Pastor).

Like Jeremiah, i have seen and i cry.

i hid for years because of this.

Yet i am very tired of living 42 years without Yeshua.

Tis why, despite my uncouth delivery,

i deliver.

Unlike those before me.

i am Peter, too passionate, intimately involved in everything! πŸ˜€

Christ can do much with my run hot self (lava baby!) πŸ˜€

i refuse to make small mistakes!

(there really is no such thing in Elohim’s eyes)

i go big!

all or nothing stakes!

i bank on Jesus!

Take the wheel Lord! πŸ˜€

<drops mike & walks off stage>

Peace & Collard Greens! πŸ˜€

in Jesus’ name we pray, amen! πŸ˜€

(Matthew 8, Shemesh 1)

Lessons Learned

  • To not yell at others after 2 or more days.
  • To not chase after those determined to leave (during Church service, etc)
  • Ministry is a marriage & Elohim doesn’t like divorce. (Especially when He put/placed you there).
  • Not staying in one place = wishy-washyness, difficult to recieve blessings.

And…what am i willing to stick with, through the good & the bad? (Where is my Faithfulness?)

Feeling weak? Too tired to keep standing? Etc? (Difficulties of any kind…)

Listen to My Favorite Psalms!

On the 4th night of no sleep, i got through it by listening to Ps 23, 42, 19, 57, 27 & 34 on repeat, playing in one ear!

HALLELUJAH !

It is like being married in an abusive situation. (My current situation)

One becomes free & clear in His Way!

To not retaliate in any form.

To not be a victim in any form.

How does one do that/this?

Lessons Learned….One i am implementing, pretaining to the 3rd Way!

The Way Christ would respond, have us respond, to the world!

(For surely it is abusive eh?) πŸ™‚

To learn to use the system (rules of society, etc) against itself! To learn to heap coals on another and be free of blame IN ELOHIM’s EYES!

To find that sweet spot & maintain it! Help it grow, keeping that flame alive!

The theme behind turn-the-other-cheek, take-my-shirt-give-my-cloak, coal-heaping verses!

They are all interconnected!

Not aggressive, not passive either, plus learning patience, with His Mercy & Grace!

For lately, the house has been quite or empty, during the day, allowing me to truly sleep!

Alhumdulillah ! πŸ˜€ Ty Yeshua! Ty Holy Spirit! Ty Elohim! My Father, My Protector, My Strong Tower! πŸ˜€

To completly rely on Elohim to cover me, when the person who was designated to do so doesn’t…

And inside begins to undercut everything/anything you/i do.

i am under the covering of Elohim Himself!

There are more with me than against me! (Hallelujah!) πŸ˜€

it may seem like it is just me. πŸ˜€

Yet i stand, with much human oposition.

And i WILL NOT RUN!

So help me Elohim!

So!

i keep my arms propped up with Psalm 23, 42, 19, 57, 27 & 34! πŸ˜€

Spiritual Warfare love! At its best!

No weapon formed against me shall prosper!

No trap laid for me shall prosper!

You (nor i) am in control of this situation! This is ALL Elohim!

<pulling out popcorn> πŸ˜€

All set to watch Your Glory Lord! πŸ˜€

Keep It Coming! πŸ˜€

In Yeshua’s holy name, amen! πŸ˜€

https://www.cpj.ca/defiance-not-compliance-turning-other-cheek

but the slave has already made their point. They have shown you that they are a human person with dignity and worth. You don’t own them, you cannot control them, and they do not submit to your rule.

Jesus’ instruction not to resist evil and to turn the other cheek transforms from an instruction to accept injustice into a challenge to resist systems of domination and oppression without the use of violence.Β 

Jesus is telling his followers to find creative, active, and nonviolent ways to assert their humanity and God’s love in the world!

even when we have no social, political, or economic power, we can still find ways to stand our ground, take control of the power dynamic, and cause people in power to see us in a new light without using violence. To do so is truly to be a citizen for public justice.

Without me actively striving to do this, the Lord is showing, guiding me how! πŸ˜€ With His Love, Mercy & Grace! Hallelujah!

The ‘striving’ i do is in my entreaties of Him, my desire to remain in that closer relationship!

So i am being gently curbed from my impatience! πŸ˜€

Gently curbed from my anger!

Protected from despair!

Shown another way! Everytime!

ALLAH U AKBAR! πŸ˜€

Ty Yeshua! From the bottom of my heart! TY! This is why i love You so!

You are so good to me!

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.”

Ecclesiastes 11:6

You Just Never Know…But God Does from Daily Bible Inspirations
https://dailybible.co/p/SkgOaFNVBM

New Living Translation

Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another–or maybe both.

For i was like huh? With the NIV version.

This NLT i understand!

http://biblehub.com/ecclesiastes/11-6.htm

New American Standard Bible

Sow your seed in the morning and do not be idle in the evening, for you do not know whether morning or evening sowing will succeed, or whether both of them alike will be good.

And this is one of the reasons why the NASB Bible is my preference! πŸ˜€

The Word is seed.

When you are living, breathing and walking in Christ daily, seed is in overabundance, in you!

Shaking and falling every time you open your mouth, every time you breathe, with every step you take!

(imagine this lovely picture, mustard seeds flying everywhere without effort!):-D

The more i hear, “Silence is golden.” the more i speak up! Gladened by such rotten egg throwing!

For i know it is not You who say this. πŸ˜€

This means my Sword is effective!

i sharpen my blade on such criticism! πŸ˜€

When one has practiced listening & obeying the Holy Spirit only, one knows the difference between spirits!

No reasoning just shutup!

(be silent, etc, etc)

i pick up my cross & move on!

The Lord has blessed me with a very loud voice (will) & i will use every single bit of it, for Him!

Agitating that which is not of Elohim?

Let me get the popcorn! πŸ˜€

For i am loving this show! πŸ˜€

Show me Your Glory Lord! πŸ˜€

Hallelujah! πŸ˜€
