“Just because your Faith and church views God’s Commandments as burdensome, strict and non-relenting and therefore obsolete, doesn’t mean that we all feel that way about our God’s commandments. Some of us find them a delight and we find joy in keeping them. (Psalms 119:46-48)
Just because you are frustrated and angry over the many self-imposed restrictions in your religion, and just because you are so intense to the point where you feel that anyone who doesn’t see the scriptures or practice worship or observe a lot of dos and don’ts as you do is going to hell, doesn’t mean that I am going to hell. Remember the Pharisees and the Sadducees observed a lot of dos and don’ts also.
Just because you belittle me and dismiss me and cast my name out as evil doesn’t mean that you are more holy and righteous than anyone else.
Just because you summarily dismiss me as wicked, false, damned and lost doesn’t make me wicked, false, damned and lost.
There is a Judge who knows the hearts of men and judges Righteously and True. And before His Throne and on His Right Hand is our Advocate, pleading His own precious Blood for our salvation so that The Supreme Judge of judges will not see my imperfections and sins nor hear your accusations against me but receive the TESTIMONY of The Blood Of His SON and our LORD Jesus CHRIST.”
“Therefore I stand dumb before the Judgment Seat Of YHWH and I choose to know nothing save Christ and Him Crucified.”
May God Have Mercy On Us All and May The Blood of Christ JESUS hide my wretched soul.”

“Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” ~ Matthew 5:10-12
Have you ever noticed that God’s Way and his choices in leadership and messengers aren’t subject to man’s scrutiny or assessment? God doesn’t subject Himself or His decisions to the wisdom of man. GOD Is GOD ALONE!
Often God’s chosen and sent emissaries are rejected by the world and its systems of organized religions and Christian churches. Often God’s true servants must stand alone, preach alone and endure a very lonely life.
Look at Jesus’ earthly minister. He was not supported or endorsed by any mainstream religious sect or organization (denomination). To the contrary, because he preached differently from the recognized Jewish religious organizations and was not sanctioned by them nor did he submit himself or his message to them for their examination and approval, he was ostracized, ridiculed and marked for destruction and death by them.
He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
~ Isaiah 53:3-5 ~
If you aren’t a part of the good old boys network and if you don’t play politics and kiss butt and pay monetary tributes and give praises to certain persons who deem themselves entitled to decide your fate in ministry, you will be ostracized, ridiculed, despised and rejected by men and marked for destruction and death by them.
You will often stand alone! But be encouraged because you are not alone. Rejoice! You are in the divine fraternity of God-sent messengers who were also rejected and despised by men but remembered by God.
Glory To God!
“If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” – Hebrews 12:7-11
The discipline or rather “chastening” referred to in this passage of scripture involves nurturing, education and punishment for the purpose of correcting a rebellious spirit and to bring about the perfection of moral character and behavior that will lead to Spiritual wellness, wholeness and eternal life.
It is not out of anger but out of love that we are disciplined.
It is not to injure but to save that we are chastened.
It is evidence of our adoption as children of God.
“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.” – Proverbs 3:11-12
REJOICE THAT WE ARE TREATED AS CHILDREN BELONGING TO GOD!
AGAIN I SAY, REJOICE!!!
Victory is My Name!
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He Who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” – 1 John 4:4
The devil hopes we never learn that “greater is He (The Holy Spirit of Yahweh) that is in us than he (The devil) that is in the world.” Satan has already been defeated at the cross of Calvary by the shed blood of Christ Jesus. The devil hopes we’ll never learn that his power has been stripped from him and that we have been given “authority over all of the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19). And Satan hopes that we will never learn that when we pray, we do not pray for the victory, you pray from the victory.
My Name is Victory!
BECAUSE I SAID SO
“For I am the LORD…” – Leviticus 11:45
“For I am the LORD your God…” – Isaiah 41:13
We who are parents have probably told our children to do something and they asked why. And we said, “Because I told you.” Our children are our responsibility. We are the parents and they are the children. And although they are not always able to understand the reasoning behind our commands, they are expected to obey them or face the consequences of disobedience.
The Holy Scriptures contain the Eternal Laws of God that no one understands logically. And yet God does not stop to explain himself to us? He simply says, “I am the Lord your God.” He is above our need for explanations and deserving of our full obedience.
OBEY THE LORD!
