3 THINGS A BLESSED WOMAN ALREADY UNDERSTAND
#1 THEY UNDERSTAND WITH WHOM TO HANG
2That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.
3And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?
4Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner.
#1 THEY UNDERSTAND THEY GONNA BE HATED
And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.
#2 THEY UNDERSTAND WHO TO GIVE IT TO WHEN IT GETS HEAVY
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
3 THINGS CRITICS OF THE CHRISTIAN WILL NEVER
#1 AIN’T NOBODY HOLY
ONE GOOD BUT ONE
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
…I DON’T WASTE MY TIME TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE
#2 AIN’T NOBODY HELLBOUND
IT’S SOME PERMANENT RESIDENTS IN HELL AND IT’S GOING TO BE NEW INDUCTEES BUT THEY WERE NOT HELLBNOUND
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
…NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH
#3 AIN’T NOBODY BUT THOSE THAT KNOW CHRIST HEAVEN BOUND
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
2 THINGS AND A BONUS : THAT HAPPEN TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY DON’T UNDERSTANDING
#1 THEY GET FUSTRATED
1Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
UNDERSTANDING HAPPENS WHEN YOUR MIND AND YOUR INTELLECT , AND YOUR SPIRIT ARE IN AGREEMENT
WHEN YOU YOUR MIND KNOWS SOMETHING AND YOUR INTELLECT KNOWS SOMETHING ELSE AND YOUR SPIRIT FEELS SOMETHING ELSE- THEN YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND.
-THE FACULTY THAT HOLDS EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS YOUR INTELLECT
-THE FACULTY THAT RECEIVES EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS YOUR MIND
-YOUR FACULTY THAT CARRIRS EVEY THING YOU RECEIVE AND EXCHANGES EVERTHING YOU KNOW AND WHAT YOU FEEL BETWEEN YOUR HEART, YOUR MIND, AND YOUR INTELLECT, IS CALLED YOUR SPIRIT
PHONE RECEIVER- MIND
PHONE BODY- INTELLECT
#2 YOU GET AGGRAVATED
THAT’S WHEN YOUR INTERNAL IS INFLUENCED BY YOUR EXTERNAL
If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.
( A FOOL DON’T AGRAVATE ME NO MORE: IT’S SOME PEOPLE I LOVE ARE WEAK TO WOMEN MEN; THEY DON’T AGGRAVATE ME NO MORE
CAUSE I UNDERSTAND
#3. THET GET DOMINATED
THAT’S WHEN YOUR INTERNAL IS COMPLETELY CONTROLLED BY YOUR EXTENERAL
He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
3 WAYS AND A PLUS TO QUICKEN YOUR UNDERSTANING
#1 SEEK UNTIL HE ANSWERS
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
#2 STAND UNDER AUTHORITY
1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
2Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
3As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
#3 SQUACH UNLESS ATTITUDES
REBUKE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS GLADNESS
Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.
AN ATTITUDE IS TO UNDERSTANDING WHAT A NAILS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RODE IS TO YOUR TIRES!
