Pray for the broken
It is time to pray for those who are broken.
I want to share something that has been on my heart a long time. I am speaking to myself along with you. To remind us, to repent, and to restore what Yah has given us to do. To be obedient to His word. To love one another as ourselves. Isaiah 61 to set the captives free. The ones who are in prison, bondage, torment.
I want you to consider this: How do we love the unlovable? How do you speak life into them?
When you speak evil of someone does it effect you? Yes it does. It also breaks the heart of Jesus who died for everyone, it also breaks the heart of Creator who created them.
There comes a time when we need to really think before we speak, or even before we type things out on social media.
What are you saying about others? What are you saying about yourself?
Proverbs 18:21 Death or life are in the power of the tongue.
We know Creator created everything. He created man, woman, creation, all of the universe.
He spoke life into existence. He spoke life into man into woman. Do we not see and do what our father in heaven does. Speak Life!
He knew us before He formed us in our mothers womb. He knew us. He knows everything about us.
He loved us so much He sent His son to die for our sin's.
So what do we do with those who are unlovable in our sight? How do we speak life into them?
I sometimes see intercessor's gossiping in praying for others. We really need to shut this down and stop doing this to people.
When someone confesses their sin, their struggles to you it must be kept in confidentiality.
James 5:15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick and the Lord will raise him up and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16: confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Why do we slander people we know or who we don't even know, who we don't understand, who we don't know what the accuser has done to them or the torment they have been through. Evil torments people, our minds, our actions. We wrestle not with flesh and blood but with principalities.
Slander = strong s 2637 = an open slanderer to speak evil of, slander with whatever words come to ones mouth without giving thought to them, allowing thoughtless words to be spoken.
Proverbs 30:10 do not slander a slave (one who is in bondage) to his master, lest he curse you and you be found guilty.
Ecclesiastes: 7:22 For you also have realized that you likewise have many times cursed others.
Do we reap what we sow with our tongue?
There was a old man who was what we called the town drunk. No one liked him, they considered he would never amount to anything, they despised him. Above the bar that he was at all the time came a ministry who brought a band in all the time, they met every night and worshiped God. Pretty soon the old man started going upstairs with his drinks, to listen to the music. One night a young man had a word for him. The young man went to his leader and told him I have a word for him. So they both went over and the young man said to the old man. God says I know how you feel, I killed my son also. The old man wept uncontrollable for about 40 minutes. Wailing like no one had seen or heard before. He was finally able to tell his story.
When he was younger he was cleaning his gun and it accidentally discharged and killed his only son. And he was never able to forgive himself. That night his healing process started.
When I was in Alaska doing ministry, I met a man in a village who also was the town drunk. God said to honor him in front of everyone who was there. I did this, gave him a gift, and spoke life into him and seen his countenance change, God really touched him. Later I found out his wife had died years ago and his grief over took him. God seen his heart and loved him out of his grief. He told me next time we come to his village, he would make us his famous pizza. I was honored he would do this for us.
Can we see others through the eyes of Jesus the one who bore all our sins? Or do we just see them and judge?
How do we look at those who are broken on the inside and being tormented by satan ?
Are we disgusted or does our heart breaks for what breaks Jesus heart?
I'm going to bring this up because this story broke my heart. I have seen evil said against Bruce Jenner who is now Caitlin Jenner. But yet we don't know the torment he has been through, we don't know what his childhood was like, we don't really know him, we don't know his brokenness. but yet we say he is going to hell for doing what he did in becoming a woman. Are we to judge him or the evil that has attacked him? Judge the evil and pray for him to have an encounter with Jesus.
We have many transgender people who need healing and the love of Jesus.
Do we condemn him or just maybe through his pain, grief, torment he was able to save someone else from committing suicide. How do we react to this. My prayer for him/her is to have an encounter with Jesus that would bring him back to a living God who will breath life into him.
Titus 3:2 to slander or abuse or speak evil of no one to avoid being contentious to be forbearing (yielding, gentle) and to show unqualified courtesy toward everybody.
Psalm 101:5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor – him I will destroy.
James 4:11-12 Do not speak against one another brethren.... there is only one lawgiver and Judge the One who is able to save and to destroy – but who are you who to judge your neighbor.
The greatest command but yet so hard to keep is: Love your neighbor as yourself.
Our flesh is so good at slandering others because they don't fit into our mold.
There was a time when christian missionaries came to this land and told us being native/Indian that when God made us He made a mistake, so God sent them to correct this mistake. We were called heathens, our culture was taken away we were brought a Jesus who only loved us, only a certain way – white, or how they believed....we didn't measure up to their belief's.
So when God makes people, different nationalities, different ones who don't measure up, in our eyes, the misfits. Did He make a mistake? I would say no. He formed everyone and knew them in their mothers womb. Did He know they would fall into sin? Yes, we all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.
Mathew 12:36 but I tell you that every careless word that people speak they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.
Ephesians 4:11 let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you with all malice.
Leviticus 19:16 You shall not go about as a slanderer among your people and you are not to act against the life of your neighbor. I AM The LORD.
I have heard so many judge gay people in hatred, condemning them. Are we not to breath life into them to bring them to Jesus. Yes we judge evil but do we judge people who have been mislead in their identity by satan?
How about when we speak evil of our President? Did God's word not say to pray for those in leadership. This doesn't mean we have to agree, we need to pray for them as a person whom God created.
We judge denominations without even knowing them as people, our brothers.
God did not make denominations, He made mankind to have a relationship with Him. Mankind made denominations. We need to look at their hearts, build relationships and speak life into them when the Holy Spirit releases us to.
We have many people who are on drugs, alcohol who need healing and the love of Jesus
Remember the last words of Jesus: Father forgive them they know not what they do.
When you build relationships, remember this, you may be the only bible they know or read.
The whole world is exposing their brokenness, they are vulnerable to be exposed to who He is.
So when we speak evil of one another do we curse them along with our-self?
