What Is the Difference Between?

God loves each of

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 New International Version

What is the difference between our Heavenly and our earthly?

Our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally.

Sad to say, I believe there is more dysfunctional families than there is “normal” families.

 

Our Father disciplines us for our best interest.

How many times do our earthly parents demand we do what they want, not caring what we want?

Our Heavenly Father always is there and always cares about our personal problems.

How many parents are there that you can talk about personal problems with?

Our Heavenly Father heals our emotional pains.

How many parents are there that even care about our problems or are even the cause of them?

Our Heavenly Father knows where we are best suited in life and gives us divine purpose in life.

How many parents talk about their children’s career with them and help them to where they are best suited in life?

Now I am not belittling loving parents, they are to be appreciated, loved and respected.

However, no matter how good they are, they will never be as good as our loving  Heavenly Father.

Now if you come from a dysfunctional family or an abusive one it will be hard to understand and believe this but just keep praying and having an open heart. He will heal your wounds and guide you into the most awesome love affair there is.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Heavenly Father) for the wonderful privilege of being bestowed with the most awesome poppa there ever could be. I exalt you in the name of my magnificent loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

If You Have a Difference With Anyone.

Accept life, and be most patient and tolerant with one another, always ready to forgive if you have a difference with anyone. Forgive as freely as the Lord has forgiven you. Colossians 3:13 J.B. Phillips New Testament                                                                     

Accept life.                                                                                                                                     

Yes it is unfair and many times there is nothing you can do about it.                                          

The best thing to do is to leave it in Jesus’ hands. Otherwise you will become angry and bitter. That will slowly destroy you and all those around you.                                                      

This is hard to do at first but with practice it becomes easier. That does not mean there will come a time when it is always easy.                                                                                

Patience is a virtue that is only gained with constant practice. Joseph -Anthony : Green I find as many get older their patience gets shorter. There is a difference of course with the ones who mature more and more in Christ as they age. They become more like our Beloved King. That does not mean you will never lose your patience. We all have our breaking point. Even Jesus did.                                                                                                       

I find the most intolerant are those who preach we should be more tolerant of them.                    Yes I am talking about the homosexuals who scream we should accept their lifestyle but they refuse to accept ours. It is the same with the Muslims who want to come to our country but refuse to accept our way of life. Yes I am referring to those who are not white and feel they can say and do anything to whitie but scream blue bloody murder when they have to try to stand on equal ground with us (anyone know what affirmative action is?)

There are times when we are not to tolerate unChrist like behaviour not matter what colour, nationality or religion. That said we are to be tolerant of others little nuances like someone who is slow at the check out at the grocery store.                                                        Forgive yes, forget no.                                                                                                              

Yes we are to forgive others as Christ has forgiven us. This is mostly for our own welfare.                                                                                                                           Hatred of the heart is like rust to a car, it starts out small but if you do not get rid of it fast it will destroy you. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                      

If we refuse to forgive than it slowly eats our soul away and we end up bitter, angry and with serious anger management problems. This is bad for society, bad for our relationships and bad for our health.                                                                                             

Now just because we forgive does not mean we are to forget.                                                

That does not mean we are to throw a past offence in somebody’s face with every disagreement.                                                                                                                               

What it does mean is that when someone abuses us we learn how to deal with the situation. Many times the best way to deal with it is with good Christian councilors. So if a girlfriend is a two timer we must forgive her but learn why we are attracted to those types of personalities so as to avoid the situation again.                                                             

No where do you see Jesus indicate that He tolerates destructive behavior.                       

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in my mind and in my heart a disposition like our beloved king Jesus so as to be a light unto others how to live a life that is acceptable unto you. I sincerely request this in the name of my greatest mentor Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                              

May  the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

See the Difference?

That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment Matthew 5:21-22 King James Version

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sisterwill be subject to judgment. Matthew 5:22 New International Version.

This is why it is important to cross reference our Bibles.
In the King James where as it is missing in the New International Version.

Now concerning this passage

Just because we are Christians does not mean we do not have emotions like everybody else.

 

For anyone to try to manipulate you into feeling bad because you are angry with them for a just cause is destructive to you in your spiritual life, in your mental life and in your physical life.

Holding in anger is destructive and must be dealt with appropriately.  Sometimes that may means seeing a councilor.

If someone intentionally says or does something to anger you (it is noted that wives know the buttons to push to set off their husbands which I heard on a broadcast on Focus on the Family) then they need to get counseling because they have serious mental problems.

From my experience if they refuse to either stop it or get counseling then I stay as far away from them as I can get because they bring me nothing but grief.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer or deliverer) deliver me from the grips of unwarranted anger and from those who intentionally get their perverted pleasure in intentionally angering others. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes s when they tried to bait Him, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
