Dealing With Frustration/Fear/Discouragement

Frustration. Fear. Anger. Discouragement. It’s something we’ve ALL felt in our lives, from time to time. And looking through the pages of Holy Writ (Old AND New Testaments but ESPECIALLY the Old Testament), one might come to falsely believe that the Old Testament kings/prophets never had their fair share of anger/fear/frustration/disappointment. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! 

King David was known (at times) to be in GREAT DESPAIR (over his sins!) This is evidenced in Psalm 69:

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my GodThey that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away” (Psalm 69: 1-4)

And then there was also Jeremiah (also known as “The Weeping Prophet”):

“For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed” (Lamentations 1:16)

Behold, O Lord; for I am in distress: my bowels are troubled; mine heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: abroad the sword bereaveth, at home there is as death. They have heard that I sigh: there is none to comfort me: all mine enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that thou hast done it: thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me” (Lamentations 1:20-21)

And let us also not forget Elijah, who FLED FOR HIS LIFE!

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time

And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers” (1 Kings 19: 1-4)

Therefore, David DESPAIRED, Jeremiah WEEPED and Elijah FEARED! They were all HUMAN, just like you and me! And truth be told, NONE of the Lord’s Old/New Testament prophets and/or Old Testament kings were perfect, for even THEY made mistakes! They FEARED, they WEEPED, they felt HIGHLY DISCOURAGED at times, like I said! However, nearly ALL of them (with the exception of King Saul & a few others) repented and came back to the Lord! This is evidence of how the Lord “restored” each of them:

David: Psalm 71 and 72 seem to answer Psalms 69 and 70

Jeremiah: Jeremiah 15: 19-21 was God’s response TO Jeremiah, concerning Jeremiah’s “discouragement”

Elijah: 1 Kings 19: 9-18 is the Lord’s “response” TO Elijah’s “fear”/”discouragement”

But if that STILL don’t help you, then let me tell you of my OWN experiences with fear/anger/discouragement:

1). I’m the only Messianic Jewish-Christian in my family and they all think I’m “crazy” for believing in Jesus Christ and “the bible”, etc.

2). I’m one of the only “open believers” at my workplace (a place where many like to “mock Christ” and “mock the bible”, because they think it’s so much FUN/ENTERTAINING/EMPOWERING to do so!)

3). While all of my old High-School and college friends are now pretty much all married with kids, there’s a very good chance that marriage & kids is not in the cards for ME, as far as THE LORD’S WILL seems to go (thus, making ME feel like a sort’ve “modern-day Jeremiah”)

4). Just like Jeremiah in the OT times, it seems the more I try to preach the gospel of Christ, the more people DON’T listen to me, which is HIGHLY DISCOURAGING, to say the least!

5). People in my family, my workplace/etc. make ME feel like the “bad guy” for not believing in “gay marriage”, “abortion”, “gay rights”, etc.

6). I have a couple of “Christian” friends who find absolutely nothing wrong with abortion, gay marriage and Catholic Church “theology” and of whom seem to think I’m such an “awful person” for trying to say that women shouldn’t have abortions for any reason, and that gay marriage and the Catholic Church are NOT of God!

7). I more or less feel like I’m being forced to celebrate “Dec25th” against my will (just to keep the peace in the family), even though I know in my heart and soul what a GODLESS, DISGUSTING holiday December 25th is! My “Christian” friends think I’m the Devil for even doing so much as “suggesting” that “Dec25th” has MAJOR PAGAN ORIGINS and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRIST! But in fact, THE WORLD makes me feel like such a “you-know-what” for NOT wanting to celebrate it!

But what is the crime, there? Just because EVERYONE does something doesn’t make it “right”, biblically-speaking! If the world worshiped Baal, would THAT make it “right”, biblically speaking? Anyways, I hate myself for being complacent on this one and for not putting my foot down. Not to mention I’m also probably being a a bit “hypocritical” here as well, as in previous posts, I stated that Christians celebrating “Dec.25th”, KNOWING its true connotations were in possible danger of judgement. 

8). Related to #3 above, any time I even “try” to date someone who’s even “remotely” Christian, it NEVER WORKS OUT. EVER. And when I inquired to the Lord about it, the Lord’s response more or less seemed to be: I don’t call EVERYONE to date/get married, ya know? (Hinting that my heavenly “calling” IS to be likened unto a “modern-day Jeremiah”?)

9). A couple of sins I struggle with (hoarding and/or food addiction) are SO HARD to overcome. I go through periods of time where I can “seem” to overcome it for awhile. But then…..I oftentimes seem to subtly go right back to it (nevermind the fact that I’ve tried to pray and cry out to the Lord about it LOTS of times……maybe I just need more faith?)

10). I try to find time each and every single day to “spend time with the Lord” and/or to “read his written word”. But it seems like every single time I try to open up the bible, I get sleepy…….really, really sleepy……or I become SO afraid of accidentally getting a WRONG interpretation from the bible that I’m almost too afraid to read it, sometimes (I know how ridiculous that must sound to some!) 

11). No matter HOW HARD I try to keep my patience at ALL times and in ALL situations, there’s things in my family and ESPECIALLY at my workplace that test my patience TO THE HILT! Working with the general “public” on any given day’s gonna come with customer “complaints”, naturally. And oftentimes, it’s complaints that either I can’t do anything about (as I don’t make the rules there) OR that I consider not even “complainable”.  

For example, if I try to bag a customer’s food in a special way where the hot stuff isn’t touching the cold stuff or if I want to wrap up some small tubs of sauces in a small bag WITHIN the plastic bag so the sauce doesn’t move around in the plastic sack and spill everywhere, it seems like 8 times out of 10, the customer will either COMPLAIN or give me this STRANGE LOOK like “ugh, you’re being WAY TOO nice to me, you’re WAY over-doing it, ugh!” And it REALLY tests my patience, sometimes! Here I am, trying to provide EXEMPLARY customer service TO the customer, and yet, there they are, complaining about EVERY. SINGLE. LITTLE. THING! It’s NUTS! In fact, this is often what I have to deal with on a daily basis!

I kid you not. I’ve had days where ONE customer complained about 5 or more small little things, one right after another, boom, boom, boom! And then, they’d have the gall to complain to ME if MY face looked even just a “little” minorly frustrated at the end of their “spiel”. Or I’ll have customers that won’t complain but they’ll wait until I have everything all bagged up for them, with a long line behind them and then, they’ll ADD things to their “order”. AGGRAVATING! But I have to try to remember to have the PATIENCE OF CHRIST! That’s not always easy in my line of work, folks! In fact, I’ve even had customers complain that I’m TOO nice at times. Well, in MY opinion, being “too nice” is FAR much better than being “rude”, am I right?

What IS it about human nature, that the MORE someone gives to us, the LESS AND LESS we appreciate it? Now I sort’ve know how Jesus Christ must’ve felt on the cross. And even before and after. During the times of the ancient Israelites, The Lord did A TON of stuff for the Israelites: He brought them out of Egypt, he parted the Red Sea for them, he gave them manna to eat from heaven, he miraculously brought forth water from rocks/desert, he oftentimes helped them defeat their enemies and blessed their crops, etc. etc. But it seemed like no matter HOW MUCH he did for ancient Israel, the Israelites STILL turned on Him and were UNGRATEFUL to Him! In fact, it seemed that THE MORE He DID for ancient Israel, the more and MORE they hated Him and turned on Him! HOW SAD! 😦

Honestly, there’ve been days at work when I’ve felt like: “Ok, if the customers want to complain, LET THEM, I’m sick and tired of trying to provide them exemplary service if they’re just going to walk all over me like that!” But ya want to know what the Lord taught me on those days?Treat ALL customers the way the RUDE customers treat YOU, guess what? YOU are then NO BETTER THAN THEY ARE!” Ouch! A hard lesson learned, but learned, nonethess!

Oftentimes, WHEN we are feeling discouraged, it’s because we’re spiritually lacking in something! Do we lack faith? Obedience? Patience? What IS it that we lack, first of all? And secondly, how do we overcome whatever’s LACKING? Answer: Through the Almighty Power & Glory of our Lord, Yeshua Hama’shiach (Jesus Christ Almighty!) His ways are NOT our ways and His divine understanding is NOT our human understanding! Our human nature is to want to get even with those who discourage us! But it’s Jesus’s nature to HUMBLE US!

lt’s not all bunnies and rainbows, folks! There’s going to be times in our lives when we feel MAJORLY DISCOURAGED and feel like throwing in the towel! But we MUST remember:

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” [Matthew 24:13]

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all” [Psalms 34: 17-19]

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” [Isaiah 41:10]

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” [John 16:33]

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” [Psalms 55:22]

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” [Jeremiah 29:11]

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” [Matthew 11:28]

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” [Galatians 6:9]

It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him” [Lamentations 3: 22-24]

And if that STILL doesn’t encourage you or provide hope, then think of it THIS WAY: Satan and his demons are THE ONES who are making you FEEL the way you do right now! And it’s their JOB to make you feel that way! HOWEVER, Revelation 20 and Matthew 25 state that they’ve ALREADY BEEN DEFEATED! They are nothing more than DEFEATED FOES:

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41]

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10]

So just remember THIS, folks……When Satan and his demons get you down, just remind Satan of his future! (Revelation 20:10)

So……in conclusion? ANGER NOT, FEAR NOT, BE DISCOURAGED NOT! Why? Because God/Jesus Christ is IN CONTROL! And may you and I never, EVER forget that folks, for the rest of our existence! Amen! 😉

 

The Difference Between True/Genuine Repentance Vs. “Face-Value” Repentance

Remember back in grade-school when one kid got into a fight with another kid and then the teacher later tried to make each kid say they were ‘sorry’ to one another, and how the two kids then scowled at each other and mockingly said ‘sorry’ in unison? (In other words, the two kids SAID they were “sorry” but they didn’t truly MEAN IT in their HEARTS?!)

Well, I really hate to admit this but I was actually ONE of those “kids” in the 4th grade! And at the time, I thought I was so “justified” in my actions……the girl had been bullying ME first, and so I bullied her right back, which eventually led to a one-time physical confrontation on the playground in which I shoved her to the ground. The teacher (perhaps in vain?) tried to make us both say we were “sorry” to one another afterwards, but ofcourse we weren’t, at the time!

This is a PRIME EXAMPLE of what I call “Face-Value” Repentance……..It is a SPOKEN/VERBAL repentance but NOT LITERAL!

If we turn through the pages of the bible, we see SEVERAL examples of “Face-Value Repentance”. Let us examine a few:

“And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer” – Exodus 9: 27-28

“Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you. Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the LORD your God, that he may take away from me this death only.” – Exodus 10: 16-17

Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthrightFor ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears” – Hebrews 12: 16-17

Now……what do ALL of these “Face-Value Repentances” have in common (including my very OWN during the time of 4th grade?) Answer: each and every individual in these cases KNOWS deep, deep down within their spirit that they’ve “done wrong in the name of the Lord” but….THEY WON’T ADMIT IT AND/OR THEY DON’T CARE!

They’re “pridefully arrogant” in their sins and even feel “JUSTIFIED” in their sins:

“And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the Lord: I have performed the commandment of the Lord” – 1 Samuel 15:13 and….verse 20…..”And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses” – Exodus 1: 8-11

And these Old Testament characters are really no different than many “Christians” out there, TODAY. They “say” or “claim” they are sorry, but they are NOT “truly sorry” with tears, repentance and mourning.

What does truly “mourning” over one’s sin(s) mean? Let us turn back to the bible to find out!

Psalm 51 of King David declares:

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.  Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spiritThen will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.”

So in other words, David was grieved of his sin, not ONLY by his OWN accord, but by the LORD’S ACCORD! In other words, he was grieved at his HEART! (In other words, he was grieved in his heart, knowing how, in his own sin, he had BROKEN the “heart” of God!)

This is the polar opposite of Esau, who only became sorry after he “got caught” by his father for selling his birthright to Jacob! And if you think about it, that’s really no different than today’s “celebrities” saying “sorry” in the news media for this or that. But one really has to wonder. Are they really, TRULY sorry or just “sorry they got caught?” If they had NEVER gotten caught, would they have still partaken of that “sin”?

However, when King David in the Old Testament said he was “sorry”, he TRULY meant it! That’s WHY the bible calls him “a man after God’s own heart”. In other words, King David was mourning the fact that he knew he had pierced God’s “heart” with his unrighteous SIN! And did King David try to cling to his sin, as though it were a secret beloved pet? No! Ofcourse not! He wanted his sin FAR REMOVED from him! Because he didn’t want to do anything that he knew, from that point on, that would break God’s heart! In fact, he cared more about God’s heart than his own, I’d bet to say!

TODAY’S men and women (specifically Christian men and women) are after their OWN “hearts!” They often think, what’s best for ME? How is this going to benefit ME? They ALSO oftentimes think, Yeah well, I don’t NEED to apologize for this or that because God ALREADY knows I’m sorry, for he knows all things! Or they ASSUME someone they NEED to apologize to ALREADY knows they’re “sorry”, when that personally can’t be further from the truth!

True, GENUINE repentance means to feel SO BAD about something, that you feel spiritually sickened to your stomach about it……..SO GRIEVED that you feel like metaphorically cutting out your insides with GREAT SHAME………SO GRIEVED…that you’d do almost anything to change it (whatever sin you’ve committed/been committing). In other words, it’s a TRUE change of heart.

On the other hand, face-value repentance is just putting on a “show”. For example: A person gets caught cheating on their spouse. And oh, how “sorry” they are, and oh how they promise “they’ll never do it again”. But these types of “apologies” only go so far. What will the cheat-ER do once the cheat-EE (the spouse being cheated on) becomes “too trusting” again? Are they really, TRULY sorry or only “sorry because they got caught”?

One thing that ALL people will have in common that get thrown into the lake of fire someday (Revelation 20:15) is either that they are NOT truly sorry for all their bad deeds they’ve done throughout their lifetime OR will try to “claim” (before God) they’re sorry (but aren’t TRULY sorry, only sorry they “got caught”). In other words, they’ll be the epitome of “face-value repentance”.

On the flipside, the very few people who DO make it into the Lamb’s Book of Life (God’s record book of all his FAITHFUL servants) will have what’s called GENUINE REPENTANCE. They will be sorry NOT ONLY for the hurt they’ve caused themselves and others but for the major hurt they’ve caused to GOD ALMIGHTY *HIMSELF!* They’ll be grieved at their very hearts over the “broken heart” of God over their sin(s)! 

Signs a person is TRULY sorry/repentant:

1). They realize just how “damaging” the sin(s) are to themselves and others and to Almighty God

2). They pray to the good Lord to remove the sin(s) from their life

3). They work about in ways in order TO banish the sin from their life (ex: an alcoholic will stop drinking, a drug addict will work to become clean, a person with severe anger issues will get some anger-management counseling, etc.)

Signs a person is NOT truly repentant/sorry:

1). They stop the behavior “once caught” but then quickly take back up the behavior again “when no-one’s looking”

2). They don’t see their “sin” AS sin or as “bad” of a sin as it SHOULD BE

3). They cry tears of pain, saying or claiming how sorry they are, but then immediately take back up the behavior once God/people around them have forgiven them for “said behavior”

I hope this will help you distinguish true, genuine repentance from “face-value repentance”. In other words, a person can APPEAR in the face to be “most grieved” over their “sin”, but the inside of their spirit may feel otherwise!

In other words, the inside of their SPIRITS may be saying, “ah, come on, it wasn’t/it’s not THAT bad!” while the outward expression on their face might say, Oh, please forgive me, O how sorry I AM!”

Looks can be deceiving. So be forewarned. If a person says they’re sorry, make sure they actually mean it. And if YOU yourself say you’re sorry to God and to others, make sure that YOU actually mean it! 

May this post serve as a lesson to us ALL (myself included). Amen. 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus Christ: The One and ONLY True Jewish Messiah!

Plus there might even be more than aren’t mentioned, here. Nevertheless, if that’s not enough to convince you, then I don’t know what is! Also: Think about how there is such “vile hatred” for Jesus Christ among the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, whom places the “MAN-MADE TALMUD” OVER the bible and Old Testament! WHY is that, do you think? Do you think that’s all just coincidence? Jesus Christ was NOT kidding when he called the Sadducees and Pharisees “children of your father, the Devil”. In fact, Jesus Christ even takes it a step further when he’s quoted in John’s vision as saying in Revelation 2:9 the following:

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

I’ve always interpreted that passage to mean that Jesus is saying he “knows” of their evil works, and their “tribulation” DUE to those evil works (as punishment) but they are rich (MONETARILY), just like he also knows the “blasphemy” of those which claim they are BIBLICAL JEWS but are instead, the “congregation/synagogue” of Satan/Satan worshipers in disguise. Just think of all the Jewish people you know today that OPENLY worship the Devil (Lady Gaga is one of them, for instance). And why do you think this IS, people? Do you think that’s all just coincidence? Because according to the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ himself in John’s vision, IT IS OF NO COINCIDENCE! OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE!!!
