True Wisdom

"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1Corinthians 2:14. Yesterday I had a encounter, someone had said something about God and a man spoke up and said that God was the biggest con that ever walked this earth. Well immediately those begin to attack him. They begin to quote Scripture to him and calling him names. God ever so gently spoke to my heart and said I need you to defend him. I said ok Lord but I do not know what to say. He said that's ok, my Spirit does. So I told these people to stop quoting Scripture, to stop calling him names. I also went further and blamed the Christians as to why this man did not believe in God. I said we were suppose to love him. We were suppose to be Jesus to him. I reminded them that God tells us in Ephesians 4:31- "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice." I also reminded them how is he going to see Jesus if we are constantly calling him names and quoting Scripture that he does not understand. Guys, Scripture is for the believer not the unbeliever. Scripture tells the believer how to behave and how to have a relationship with God so we can show unbelievers what Christ is truly like. But with the attacking he will never see that because of the hatred. God also reminded me in 1 Peter 3:15-16- "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed." God had me ready for that because then they turned on me. And that is ok. I let them say what they had to say and then since they were so called believers and could quote Scripture so well, well, God let them have it. I was quoting Scripture that I didn't even know I knew. That is how the Holy Spirit works. That is why it is so important for us to live in the Holy Spirit at all times and be ready at all times. Long story short, that man turned to me and said, you are what I think a true Christ Follower looks like. How come you came to my defense? I said because I would like for you to know the Christ I know and I want to know what made you come to the decision of thinking that God is a con. But he had to go. God planted a seed. Now I have to pray that someone living in the Holy Spirit will show this man the rest of the way. I trust in God. I pray that he don't run into any more of the so called Christians that he did yesterday. Again open the Word of God, seek knowledge and wisdom with all your being. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Guys we got to get moving, big things are taking place and Christians are still waiting for the virus to be over so we can come together, all the while the devil is out there creating havoc. It is our job to get out their and show the world JESUS! Have a blessed day and RISE UP!
