The Righteous Anger of The LORD!
“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” Matthew 6:30 (KJV)
Today I had an experience that shook me, and the righteous anger of the LORD rose up in me like I have never experienced.
I took my recycling bin in today and a Christian friend who takes care of things there, drove up and approached me.
A while back, he had asked me to pray for him about this woman in his life, that he wanted to marry her. But the woman didn’t seem to care and she used him. He had much trouble with her and he still loved her.
Today when I showed up, he told me he was so angry at God and was not going to follow him anymore, because God wasn’t answering his prayers and wasn’t giving him what he wanted.
He said he had a .22 rifle and thought about using it on himself. You have to know the Holy Spirit rose up in me and He let him have it… with all three barrels.
I told him God still loved Him, but if he turned away from Him, God would let him go. I was so angry at the things he was saying.
God does not force us to love Him. I shared the scriptures with him and I could see the tears in his eyes, but I could also see that the word would have to work in his heart because he had hardened his heart against God.
I prayed for him there, but could feel the wall he had erected.
In 2 Timothy 3:16 the Word of God says that the Word is inspired by God, profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness…
I couldn’t believe my ears… but the LORD is so jealous for His people. Sometimes He has to shock them back into the light. I know the Holy Spirit was talking to Ted.
Beloved, if you are questioning God, are angry with Him, or have aught against Him and are offended in any way by Him, it is time to go to the throne of grace and ask for forgiveness. He’s not the one to be blamed for your unhappiness or misfortune.
Where is your faith oh man? Do you not know you can please Him no other way?
Take it to Jesus! You must let these things go, for the enemy will use it to turn you away from the only One who truly loves you.
As you approach these times of great difficulty, you will not be able to stand without an undivided love and commitment to your LORD, you must find a way to be free.
If the Son has set you free you are free indeed. Put your trust in Him today!
How Many Commandments Are There?
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him,” John 14:21 (KJV).
What are His commandments, are there only ten? No friend, the WHOLE BIBLE….
It’s a relationship… what kind of relationship? Just friends or acquaintances, or maybe you just say hello every now and then and make like everything’s wonderful?
The Word of God says the LORD is my husband. We sure can’t have a great marriage if you never talk or laugh together, share your love for each other!
But in every marriage there are statutes and ways of operation for it to function at it’s best.
God’s word explains it all, everything you need to know to have the best relationship with God, and Jesus is our example.
See: John 14.
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
