SPIT-IN-YOUR-FACE THEOLOGY: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN PEOPLE SPIT IN YOUR FACE?

I wrote to a woman who says she's a Christian and who is ill that I want God to heal her, Satan attacks innocent people, some people think that only sinners are attacked, and they blame others without even knowing them. The reaction I received was that she doubts my sincerity, thinks I need to examine my heart, deleted my words of encouragement, and blocked me from responding.

So, what do you do when you try to heal and people spit in your face and slam and lock the door? You don't retaliate. You just shake the dust from your feet.

And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. (Matthew 10:14 KJVR)

    Yes you are right, you just forgive and accept some people are not ready to receive love yet but we keep on giving,even silently lol I could do with some healing so send me lots of healing huggies. Huggies back too.

  2. I think people definately have to want to help themselves before they can be talked to. A few of my friends have needed help, which I of course have tried to give them.. the offers were rejected because they were not at the stage of wanting to help themselves. We can but try and it´s always better to offer help, even if you know it will be rejected!

      I think about the people Jesus couldn't heal because they couldn't bring themselves to believe that there is a power (God) who is alive, only good, and is over all things. They won't open their minds and hearts to the kind and degree of love Jesus demonstrated when he went to the cross and the reward he has received for having the faith to be. They cling to greed, violence, or sexual depravity or even all three forms of harmful selfishness at the same time.

      Just a few days ago, I was reading a blog where a so-called Christian woman was making violent jokes about how to keep poor Mexican workers from coming across the border into the U.S. without a Green Card (worker's permit for lack of a better explanation). Then the next time I heard, she had had an accident and is feeling pain and is suffering. I don't wish it on her, but people really need to start making the connections.

      While I wrote in my post above that Satan attacks the innocent, he also attacks the guilty. God is the only being in the universe who can prevent Satan but only for a sign or the worthy. As more is expected of us now that we have had the New Testament for nearly two thousand years, the signs will be all the more difficult.

      Minds will think it's all technological trickery. Many won't be able to distinguish when hands are being guided by which spirit: Light or the dark side.

      God Bless Everyone
