i have noticed mostly everyone hates the words of my mouth.
i get told to shutup in a lot of different ways, by a lot of different people, for a lot of different reasons.. even on this blog i SERIOUSLY get haters.. the fact is people just don't want to hear what i bring to the table..
this has been apparent to me for a long time, however i recognize it as opposition from the enemy.. i noticed a long time ago, the enemy tries to put people in my life who try to make me feel like everything i say is wrong.. him and his demons want me to feel like every conclusion i come to is ridiculous and unfounded
in short, the enemy wants me to be quiet.. someone this weekend literally told me to shutup like 14 times in a row.. but i'm not ignorant.. so knowing the enemy wants to wear me down, i stood strong
the words i speak separate me from madd people i could otherwise be close friends with- and madd people hold grudges against me for my beliefs
i am thankful for this because:
"friendship with the world is enmity with God"
"fear of the Lord is hatred of evil"
"judge with a righteous judgement"
"all men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved"
^yes, all of these quotes are in the bible
the truth of the matter is.. a lot of times i am just saying the same thing the bible would say
and people diss me for it or hate on me or tell me to shutup or try to convince me i'm wrong
but what they don't get is two things
1. I WILL NOT BE SILENCED.. i know the enemy wants me to accept any and everything and have no discernment or sense of right and wrong.. ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN
2. this 'separation' is supposed to happen
"Think not that I have come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."
-Jesus (matthew 10:34-38)
