Christians, family of Christ, please listen ever more to what God has to say and guide you to do. There is SO much darkness in the world today that we are truly getting closer and closer to the Days of Noah and Lot.
However, this also means that Christ is about to return, as you know if you follow Jesus in what He has taught and said in His Word; which He preserved for us - the Bible.
If you have been following what’s been happening all over YouTube (YT), and in the world as a whole, there is a major war of speech happening right now. YT has been demonetizing tons of channels all over. I’m not going to go over this too much since a lot of other channels have done an excellent job without bias.
There is a group of particular people that are pretty violent not only in words, but acting upon those words or even awakening a sleeping giant within others to do these vile acts against those who do not resort to violence. This hateful group wants to silence those who simply disagree with them in such a way that is insane. For a less severe example: the word milkshake has been twisted so far as to stop some companies to cease selling them for a time due to “milkshaking” people. To a more severe example: throwing bricks at people.
Yep! That has become a verb…. Which is assault by the way, and can be serious to be taken as battery, because you don’t know what could be in that drink....
The list goes on and on. So, I am here to plead and remind my brothers and sisters in Christ to not feed into this mentality, but rather be a reflection of Christ in the midst of all this insane darkness. Hold fast to the Word of God in all of this, it is so important to renew your mind as Paul wrote by the inspiration of God. Jesus said that this world hated Him first and if we follow Him they will also hate us - even the very form of His values and truth.
Here's a few verses about self control, which this hateful group completely lacks. Let us allow God to work through us for the power of His Love and Light to overcome the destruction of death and darkness.
We are over-comers in Christ Jesus!
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and love and self-discipline.
He who is slow to anger is better than him who is mighty, and he who controls his spirit than him who captures a city.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
A breached city where there is no wall is like a man who has no self-control for his spirit.
Therefore I urge you , brothers, through the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you may approve what is the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against power, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
God has given us wisdom that we do not need at all to feed the fire, or as the scriptures say, to fight evil with evil - no. Instead we heap coals upon their head by doing good, which means, by doing good through the works of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, that they might be brought into repentance.
May God bless you all who have read, not to what I have said, but to what God has already said in His Word. Amen.
