Where is Yours coming from

Where does your most strongest harassment come from?

In the days of Hagar and Sarah, the child who came from faithless connivance (Ishmael) harassed the child who came --empowered by the Spirit -- from the faithful promise (Isaac). Isn't it clear that the harassment you are now experiencing from the Jerusalem heretics follows that old pattern? Galatians 4:29 msg

Where does your most strongest harassment come from?

Does it come from school because you won’t let others students copy your homework or because you don’t participate in destructive habits?

When I was in high school I was harassed and even threatened because I refused to do drugs (Which almost everyone was doing in the sixties and seventies). I stood my ground and informed them they may beat the crap out of me, but I still won’t submit to their stupid pleasures. They left me alone. By the way, it is interesting to see what broken wrecks they are now. They have aged at least twenty years before their time. For you young people today that are criticized for being so self centered remember this: The motto in the sixties and seventies was Sex, drugs and rock and roll. That sounds pretty self centered to me. How about you?

Are you harassed at work because you won’t be dishonest? I know it seems as if the cheaters are the ones succeeding in our messed up society today, but remember this: there is a God, if there is a God there is a Heaven. If there is a heaven there surly is a hell. Guess where the cheaters are going?

A wicked person earns deceptive wages, but the one who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward. Psalms 11:18

Does your harassment come from home? Domineering parents and brothers and sisters who cruelly mock your commitment to Christ? Is it selfish children who are always whining gimme gimme gimme? Is it a domineering husband or wife?

Pray to God for strength and perseverance to finish the race. The reward is well worth it. If you want a glimpse of Heaven look up Drive Time on Saddleback Church web site. Go to archives, click on Drive Time, go to the one about Revelations. Listen to Pastor Tom.

Wow, I look forward to going there.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is suffient for the needs of His people) give me the spiritual weapons, strength and wisdom to defeat satan and his minions whenever he attacks. I ask in the name of Him whom defeated satan on the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Very good! There will always be people who will harass believers, so we need to be secure in our walk with God - not seeking the approval of people. God bless!

You were such a courageous person to have withstood such bullying when young. I can't imagine having to withstand such treatment due to not wanting to do drugs. The era was one that started many such patterns: drugs, sex, etc. Your scripture posts will help us to know how to stand when facing adversity.

Hi teaches.

I believe most of todays problems started with liberalism in the sixties.

I was always taught when you are right, stand up and fight. I guess that come from relatives who fought in world war two.

Thank you for your comment.

God bless you.
