Do Not Even Associate With

  do not allow them to control you

Do not even associate with a man given to angry outbursts; Or go [along] with a hot-tempered man, Or you will learn his [undisciplined] ways And get yourself trapped  [in a situation from which it is hard to escape].Proverbs 22:24-25  Holy Bible, New Living Translation

These are explosive folks. You can be having a nice social conversation with them and suddenly they will explode in a rage. I have seen it numerous times and it was terrifying, until Jehovah blessed me with the peace, wisdom and grace to be firm with them and inform them that that childish behavior is not tolerated with me so either straighten up or get away from me. If they refuse to obey then I inform them they can discuss it with the police. Then they leave, all the while screaming like a banshee about how I am abusing them (it is not my fault, it is yours is their mantra). 

Do not try to reason with them because there is no reasoning with a fool. All that will happen is that you will get into a yelling contest with them and lose your temper, Then, they will manipulate you to lose your temper even more and they will be laughing at you on the inside.                                         

Never get into an argument with a fool. To do so, you have to go down to their level and they will beat you every time from experience. Anonymous 

I speak from a lot of experience.

In the future I refuse to even acknowledge them (even to say hello or good morning) because that opens the door and they are thieves. They will steal your peace and you will get into another yelling contest. Again, I speak from a lot of experience.

I depend upon the Holy Spirit to bless me with strength, wisdom and grace to handle these poor pitiful folks. Yes some of them are like this because of unresolved issues in their lives but most are like this because they just love to fight.    

The pitiful thing is though, that because they are cursed with this disposition, they have no friends, especially in their elder years.                                    

No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 Holy Bible, New Living Translation  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace while dealing with a war monger who attempts to steal it from me. Thank you for blessing me with the wisdom in how to prevent them from stealing Your Divine gift from me. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Not Just Their Minds.

DEPEND UPON THE LIVING WATERS

For Jews request a , and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks  foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1 Corinthians 1:22-24 New King James Version                                      

The reason people do not understand the Gospel message it two fold.   It is not just their minds but their hearts as well.                                        

With the Jews they were all about religious rites that earned Gods grace so the message of the cross was insanity to them.                                 

To the Greeks everything had to have a logical reason behind it. Christs sacrifice was illogical so it was foolishness to them.                                      

It is the same today If peoples hearts and minds are not open to receive the message it will be insanity and foolishness to them.

 Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) bless me with the peace to know I have tried to share Your message and it was rejected. It hurts when those I love mock me and persecute me because I am Your child It frustrates me when they refuse to accept Your divine message. I humbly request this in the name of He who was initially mocked and rejected by His earthly family Jesus Christ. Amen.

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