He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a quick temper displays folly (Prov. 14:29).
One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty; One who rules his spirit, than he who takes a city (Prov. 16:32).
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger. It is his glory to overlook an offense (Prov. 19:11).
Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger. A fool vents all of his anger, but a wise man brings himself under control (Prov. 29:8, 11).
Don’t befriend a hot-tempered man, and don’t associate with a who harbors anger: 25 Lest you learn this ways, and ensnare your soul (Prov. 22:24, 25).
Beyond a shadow of doubt most unrepentant persons, like Satan did, forget the condition of God’s personal forgiveness is still that they personally first have to admit, confess their sins unto God.. and which they have not, do not.. so they will reap the negative consequences of their sins further. Generally it is their own false pride that prevents them from doing so.
(2 Chr 6:22 KJV) If a man sin against his neighbour, and an oath be laid upon him to make him swear, and the oath come before thine altar in this house; 23 Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteousness. 24 And if thy people Israel be put to the worse before the enemy, because they have sinned against thee; and shall return and confess thy name, and pray and make supplication before thee in this house; 25 Then hear thou from the heavens, and forgive the sin of thy people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which thou gavest to them and to their fathers. 26 When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them; 27 Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance. 28 If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillars; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be: 29 Then what prayer or what supplication soever shall be made of any man, or of all thy people Israel, when every one shall know his own sore and his own grief, and shall spread forth his hands in this house: 30 Then hear thou from heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and render unto every man according unto all his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou only knowest the hearts of the children of men:) 31 That they may fear thee, to walk in thy ways, so long as they live in the land which thou gavest unto our fathers. 32 Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name’s sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house; 33 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name. 34 If thy people go out to war against their enemies by the way that thou shalt send them, and they pray unto thee toward this city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name; 35 Then hear thou from the heavens their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. 36 If they sin against thee, (for there is no man which sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them over before their enemies, and they carry them away captives unto a land far off or near; 37 Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly; 38 If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name: 39 Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.
Luke 18:1 KJV) And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
(Luke 18:2 KJV) Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
(Luke 18:9 KJV) And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
(Rom 12:19 KJV) Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
(Mark 9:42 KJV) And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
(Mat 3:8 KJV) Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
(Mat 3:10 KJV) And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Here is another reason I rightfully still do not like to deal with non repentant, crooked people who think they are very smart now too, even crooked church elders and crooked pastors, the reason is that they clearly do not keep the rules themselves, they do not follow the Bible but they still next expect me to keep all of the the rules especially they ones they now themselves have prescribed, that they have falsely twisted for their own self, immoral, personal use.
(Mat 7:20 KJV) Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
(Mat 7:21 KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
(Mat 5:23 KJV) Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
(Mat 5:30 KJV) And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
For example a non repentant still crooked Elder who still lies, steal will often next say to me
1: “You have to love me” as per (1 John 4:21 KJV) And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
2: “And you have to forgive me” as per (Mat 6:12 KJV) And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
3:” and if I have done anything to offend you now please forgive me?”
Well what kind of pretentious repentance now is that with an ” If” too ? You either have offended me or you did not? and what specific offence are you asking for repentance? your cheating, lying, twisting of the word of God or what?
Next they will say God will not forgive me cause I have not forgiven them? Forgive them for what? What sin have they now confessed, really repented of? none that I can see so far.. and plenty that they still personally need to deal with too.
(Mat 7:3 KJV) And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
(1 John 1:9 KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
(James 5:16 KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Is God being fooled or rather mocked now by this pretentious repentances?
(Mark 12:17 KJV) And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
Why should someone seem surprised that we should pay income taxes now even persons in the Churches?
An elder of a crooked church, and ironically two other elders, the pastor included of the same church now have personally told me that is is wrong for me to openly ask their people to repent, specifically about their witnessed tax evasions, monetary frauds. They wrongfully have even told me that this matter should only be handled rather by prayer, and that supposedly God himself does not deal with the matter here one earth, even though the provincial government itself has already found some of the family members of some of these same elders of this same church guilty of economic fraud, financial misrepresentation to the government.
Imagine that once again the people trying to tell the prophets of God what they can and cannot say? And if all of the prophets of God would would have been quieted, and gone along with the sins corruptions even in the churches, amongst believers, than what kind of prophets now would they be? worthless ones..
Now I myself had once difficulties to realize when reading the Bible to personally phantom the existence of such persons till I have personally witnessed it as well. And these same crooks do openly try to tell me and others that they really do love Jesus too.. and I am supposed to believe that now too and why?
I am already personally specifically aware of 7 evangelical churches, Baptist and Pentecostal ones, where members of these churches have admitted to me that they do carry out such immoral practises have been going on for years or I have even witnessed it myself in three of these churches..
Tax evasions and social welfare frauds are sadly very common in Canada amongst the rich and the poor churches now as well.. None of that is acceptable to me or to God.. none!
Please do pray that God would clean up his house here and also that these people would really repent before it is too late for them.
(Jude 1:11 KJV) Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
(1 Pet 1:18 KJV) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
(Eph 5:25 KJV) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
(1 Tim 6:12 KJV) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.13 I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; 14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
(Exo 20:15 KJV) Thou shalt not steal.
(Lev 19:11 KJV) Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
(Mark 10:19 KJV) Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
(Rom 2:21 KJV) Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
(Isa 65:12 KJV) Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.
(Isa 66:4 KJV) I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. 6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.
“You have heard that it was said to them of old time, ‘You shall not kill;’ and ‘Whoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I tell you, that everyone who is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment; and whoever shall say to his brother, ‘Raca,’ shall be in danger of the council; and whoever shall say, ‘You fool,’ shall be in danger of the fire of hell” (Matt. 5:21, 22).
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outcry, and slander, be put away from you, with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you (Eph. 4:31, 32).
But now do you also put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and shameful speaking out of your mouth. 9 Don’t lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his doings, 10 and have put on the new man, that is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his Creator (Col. 3:8-10).
Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. 19 So, then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man doesn’t work the righteousness of God (James 1:18-20).
Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding your own selves (James 1:21 22).
(2 Chr 6:1 KJV) Then said Solomon, The LORD hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
(2 Chr 6:2 KJV) But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.
(2 Chr 6:13 KJV) Solomon .. he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven, 14 And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and showest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:
(2 Chr 6:18 KJV) But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!
(2 Chr 6:21 KJV) Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive.
(Prov 5:21 KJV) For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
(Prov 25:26 KJV) A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.
(Luke 21:36 KJV) Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
And what fault is this elder really admitting to me? None.. He rather wants to wrongfully make me look bad cause I will rightfully not forgive this unrepentant crooked person still for I do rather rightfully ask even him to repent even for now being still a professional liar and thief, distorter of the word of God.
(2 Pet 2:4 KJV) For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
(2 Chr 6:41 KJV) Now therefore .. let thy priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.
