A closer walk with our beloved friend.

Was Disgusted with Him.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel].2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The king of Israel knew Jehovah’s laws and ordinances yet refused to obey them. He openly worshiped that which disgusted Jehovah. When he came to inquire of a man he knew was a prophet of Jehovah the prophet was disgusted with him and refused to even knowledge him.

So too it is to be with us who are of Christ’s family when we meet a wolf in sheep’s clothing that openly defies Christ’s commands and blatantly follows the wicked ones way of life. Even Jesus says that we are to abstain all contact with them.

This is because if we have contact with them they may influence us and draw us away from Christ.

The closer we get to Christ the more we become like Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

Another thing is that because we are close with Christ what disgusts Him disgusts us. So, just as these wolves in sheeps clothing disgust Christ so too do they disgust us.

Now if they repent they are to we welcomed back into the brotherhood and sisterhood of saints.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for blessing me to walk away from those who reject You and to be disgusted with their behaviour just as You are and to not even acknowledge them less they steer me away from You. I praise You in the name of He who was disgusted with the scribes and pharisee’s for their hypocrisy Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. If we are like Jesus, we will also remember that he said, “Forgive them they know not what they do.” We also remember “who made thee to differ from another?” We also do not “despise the patience of Christ that leads us to repentance.” Sure, we should be aware of wolves and condone it, but in the right spirit, otherwise we are the wolves.

    • But the problem with your first statement is that they know what they are doing so there is no excuse.

      The Bible also states in numerous places that they are to be cast out.

      Yes we have the duty to judge others as Christ has directed us to.

      • If youd like to continue this discussion scripturally, shoot me an email. Can you back up what you say with the teachings of Jesus? I can. Patience and meekness are paramount. As Ive learned, the hard way, is its often not what we say but how we say it. Your message is true. The attitude is not of God however.

      • Sorry, I need to add something. I do not call you a wolf, just in case the first comment hit you the wrong way. I apply this to myself as a lesson I continue to learn myself. I enjoy much of your writings, and Im sure I will enjoy many more. Learning the patience of Christ is a life long journey. We could all improve. Myself definately.

      • Thank you for your gracious comment.
        I did not understand you to call me a wolf nor took and offense but stated that we need to be aware of wolfs because they do a lot of damage to churches (which I have personally experienced). It is because of them that many, including myself refuse to attend church.

        In my case it is much more rewarding to help with Sunday service as a volunteer at a local seniors center.

        Patience and learning are indeed a life long metamorphosis at the hands of the Holy Spirit. Even in Heaven we will still be attending the Holy Spirit’s school of Divinity. I am sure you are an honour student.

      • Thank you. It can be hard with writing at times to get a point accross in the right light. At least for me, so I wanted to make sure! I also have a hard time with churches, as you might have noticed in some posts youve read of mine. These are problems. I will pray the Lord continue growing us so we might be part of the solution, because I for one am far from an honor student.

      • We who follow Jehovahs commands are all honour students. No one is perfect (look at Abraham and David and oh boy look a Jacob) but it is our hearts that matter to Jehovah.

        Whenever two or more are gathered together is just as much a church as any building (more so really) and I enjoy having conversations with Christians one on one or in small groups, it is so much more intimate.

      • Good point. I do believe in seeking perfection though, however with humility and a mindset that pushes forward “seeking the kingdom of God and his righteousness.” It’s a life-long thing, and though some do dare claim they have reached the “divine nature,” no one is perfect but God, and until the resurrection, we all have room for growth and should seek it earnestly.

        Most churches do not teach that Jesus will free them from sin. They use grace as a cop out for continued wickedness. Sure, just as Abraham, our faith counts us as righteous so we can approach God, but its’ what we put our faith in that matters.

        From what I see, our “desolate houses” are in need of revival — heart revival. I’m sure there are good ones though, and I am encouraged often by some of the things I read on WordPress.

        Some honor one day above the rest while others honor every day alike. I expect you are as one who honors every day alike. The sabbath was made for man, and in Jesus, his rest is not for one day, but for every day!

      • I agree very strongly with what you said.

        In Asia when you inform them that you are a Christian, the first question they will ask is how much have you suffered for Christ.
        They call western Christians marshmallows because just as a marshmallow melts in the heat most Christians begin to melt and run away when suffering for Christ comes.

        Part of suffering for Christ is being put through the furnace of affliction to burn off the dross ( the un-Christ like dispositions in our character). It is not fun I can assure you but I thank Jehovah very morning that He did that for me.

        Faith means to trust. Most of what I went through I did not understand why it was happening but trusted Jehovah even when it made no sense.

      • That is very reassuring. The trial of my own faith has been very hard but also immensely rewarding. It is always good to hear from others who have been through it.

      • The closer we get to Jesus, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Jesus Joseph a son of Jehovah

      • Indeed I can back up any and all statements with Biblical truth. Believe me I get challenged a lot.

      • I’m sure you can. There is need for rebuke, as you said. But, when we approach something according to the letter and not the spirit, we have trouble. I was thinking about this, and “who an I to judge another man’s servant?” You know what God wants you to do, and you should do it. I do hope you will consider this though. All I know is my experience, and my experience is that Jesus loves mercy. Wrath is a last resort and belongs to God.

      • There is no need to do this in wrath, that is wrong.

        BUT, in order to keep order within the church those who lead others astray must be dealt with just as Jesus dealt with the wolves in His day.
        God willing they will see the error of their ways and repent. If they refuse they are to be cast out of the church.

      • Agreed. I do try to temper things with compassion when I can though. I guess that can be easy for me at times because I have done so much wrong. As someone who has felt like a repentant wolf, I would feel like a hypocrite to rebuke them with any harshness. As is the case with most sin, I’m discovering. For me, I just want to avoid hypocrisy, seeing as how Jesus hates that. Only you and God know your heart. Blah, sorry for the long replies. You give me things to consider though, which is appreciated.

      • There is nothing wrong with long replies as long as they are not repetitive. Yours are not repetitive but well thought out.

        Yes we must depend upon the Holy Spirit to guide our words and actions when reprimanding others less we become too critical and hypocrites as well.
