Standing in God's Shoes
First day of the year, thinking about his website, should he include easybibles.
Just cannot get his head round it, he said maybe that's the problem.
He had an experience last night were he was angry with the Wife, for nagging.
Over a film that came on the television, it was one he had not seen of the Indiana Jones series. It was demanded of him that he should send a picture the little niece had drawn to their Granddaughter by e-mail. Of course that should come first over the film, but instead he showed anger back to his Dearly beloved. His old nature raised its ugly head. Anyway he sent the picture first and then went to watch the film, and said most enjoyable. While watching the film he apologized in prayer for his behaviour. And to his surprise the words came to him, there was a reason for his response, that being his Wife had a belligerent nature and that even a saint would have difficulty in not responding with that constant sort of attitude.
It started the day they first went to Church in the next village. The day their Daughter brought a young man home. The day they were to ask for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
The Church was called a Holy Spirit Church, and as time went by the nature of the young man brought home by there Daughter began to show it self. His Wife and some of her Friends at Church began to pray he would depart, go away, leave. But it never happened, they had two Children and are now separated and share the Children between them. Their Daughter and the man cannot live together because of the belligerent nature that is the man after drinking and dare say when he was sober.
He did not know the meaning of belligerent till that evening mentioned above.
The definition is, a warlike or aggressively hostile nature, condition, or attitude.
They will be tested, because that new nature has to be tried out as the scriptures talk about to produce the end product. They were told the story how pig iron has to be heated up and the scum comes to the top, and skimmed off, then cooled and the process is repeated till the end product is spring steel.
This is the process they will go through, the fiery trials of their faith till they become what Jesus will have of them to become Son's of God.
Don't fear the testing, don't fear the trial, only the fire can purify this man! They will then spring back like the steel spring, naturally.
King James Version 1 Peter 4 verse 12
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
He would like to thank his Wife for her constant moaning, because he is now like a soggy lettuce leaf ready for action at a moments notice.
He heard these words the other day, would you like me to get rid of her, his answer was no because he loves her. Not in a sloppy or sentimental way, he said, there is something special about my Wife and besides they are called to be together. He has read a Letter written to the Colossians Chapter 3 and he said it explains a lot for him and his Family. Alan
