Praise our beloved GOD for another day of life, and for us to start over in in grace. For we do not know when JESUS will return.
I want to share something I see happening with the people of the earth. We all have our own opinions about things. Be it wrong or right. Be it by what we feel GOD will say is right or what we feel GOD is saying is right. It is an opinion, not a GOD given rule for GOD is the only one who has the last say.
But you know all of us who has had a loving Grandmother, one who was the best cook, most beautiful, loving, good woman in the world to us. One that could do no wrong in our eyes and mind. The one who made the best fried chicken and apple pie. The one who loved us so unconditionally, right?
It should never be a conflict with brothers and sisters of the LORD to where we do not speak to one another ever again. Taking the hurt to the grave… is not good. We need to settle the situation between the two people in honor of our GOD.
Yes , there maybe hurt feelings from a disagreement. But you never want to have a disagreement end up unresolved and both parties feeling empty and hurt. If both are saved and have JESUS as savior then they are both from the body of Christ! If the finger hurts in a body from a splinter, you don’t want to cut it off. You resolve the disagreement with the body by removing the splinter not the finger so there will be healing. The splinter is the disagreement. The disagreement is the misunderstanding that is causing the situation of the confusion. The body needs the finger and the finger needs the body to make it whole to do the work of the LORD GOD.
Matthew 18:15 – 18:17
Matthew Chapter 18
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
Pride will get in the way of things, and this is caused by not letting GOD lead. No matter who it is who starts the conflict. A child to another child can really be something when they get going. If you have kids you know, or have nee around them long enough to see the out come of the negative situation from letting satan take a toe hold. Satan should not be allowed in between two people at any time. As you know satan is a destroyer of peace, and unity if it is allowed by the weaker one to let it in.
Division with Church people is awful. I have seen it happen more than once in different Churches, to different people, and in different years of life. Over vain things like who should sing this Sunday’s solo, who should lead the choir, who should join the Church (some Churches do not allow the mixing of what is called racial divides), who has the most money in the Church and can do and say what they want, and so on and so on. I bet all of us has been to Church like this.
29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
So I will say, it is not GOD’s fault. It is not JESUS’s fault. This people who are in the administration of the Church are responsible for how they tend to the LORD’S house. I do mean the LORD’S house. Scirpture is very plain about how GOD wants things done, how we are to treat each other. If we can not get along here on earth in HIS house, what makes us think we can be allowed in heaven with this nonsense?
GOD might not if we do not let go and forgive. Because some of the things we do is from a hateful heart. It conflicts with love and peace. Compassion and comfort. Joy and praise. And let us not forget unity in the body of Christ!
I am so grateful that we have such a loving FATHER GOD and a son who came to earth to save all of us from our sins. Sin is what divides us from our loving FATHER GOD. And HE is the one who we all need to be with when our time is up on this earth. Nothing should be more important than to please HIM. Doing what the scriptures say…not what we as mankind want to do. None of us are above GOD’s law, no matter who you are , how much money you have or don’t have, what color your skin is, or where you live.
Let us remember we should be in the body of Christ, not against each other. We need to be whole to encourage each other. Not judge others as being less holy than ourselves accusing them of not doing GOD’s will, which is then causing conflict. And this is not good. We who truly do love JESUS will need to stand against the enemy of beloved GOD and our savior JESUS united at all times. Not to wound each other, which will weaken us and the whole body of Christ ever. We need to always have on the whole armor of GOD at all times.
Feel free to share and click on the like button too. We all need to encourage each other at all times! You may know of some people who need to be encouraged from Church hurt. There is a lot of it going on now in these times. The devil is trying to keep all people at battle with each other and this is not a good thing.
Peace and joy!!!!
