Greetings in the Holy Name of Jesus Yahshuah,

My sisters and brothers, we are a suffering lot. Folks in families are getting hit with tire irons across their heads. Recently, after lights were kicked out from the electricity poles and family pet dogs stolen and killed, I reflected on hits to the head, on the back, on the hand and on the back of the leg, all while working when both hands were engaged in a work detail. I asked a delivery person would it get worse than that and there was no hesitation for the delivery person to say it usually does get worse before it gets better. My friends to add insult to injury folks are out there practicing hating and taking but this is not new behavior for the evildoers or workers of iniquity, it is what they have always done, as work and they will tell you without shame, at least it seemed they have no shame when they say, Everything I have I hate and take, from anybody.[“google.com, : to do or say something that makes a bad situation even worse for someone People were forced to work longer hours, and to add insult to injury, the company decided not to give pay raises. www.merriam-webster.com › add in...

Definition of Add Insult To Injury by Merriam-Webster ].

Anyone in today’s world waiting on a check from their government or company payroll is in faithfulness believing God will see them through the hardship. However, there are as aforementioned folks out there who have always been out there also waiting to hate you and take away from you, without remorse or regret; cold-blooded haters and takers who are willing to accept any job of malicious intent just to get paid. I do not know how a person comfortably feels justified to hate an innocent person or kill an innocent person just to get paid when the innocent person is in the same hardship and suffering just as they are suffering. Those evildoers and workers of iniquity will attach themselves to you, make you feel like they are your best friend and you should respect them for getting paid and not judge them for acting like they are your best friend or in your circle of friends. When the truth be told they are just waiting to harm you and take your property, take the other friends you have to run the pretense of friendship on them, too, take your connections in your neighborhood and community to run the deception on them, too and take all your affiliations, including take your children.

Moreover, do not get too shocked if you thought the hater was the one person you thought you could trust and go to for help, if needed. Yes, they practice loving you to later hate and take you similar to a religion and make you feel you are in a relationship. Do not get shocked when haters and takers attend church and become everyone’s most dependable friend just to increase the number of people they can target to hate and take. Some folks call folks like that heartless, scary and sinister because you do not know how deeply they will hate you or how horribly take you. This, too, shall pass but you must be mindful of the truth of friendships and people who attach themselves or their groups, to you.

Henceforth, do we conclude that the status quo of the world caused the evildoers and workers of iniquity to act against their neighbors as haters and takers as they place themselves above their neighbors and speak, I am the head in order to take without blame or a guilty conscious, knowing they are truthfully without remorse sinners who do not obey God or even have a relationship with God, knowing they belong to Satan. [“Deuteronomy 28:13, King James Version [KJV], And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:”].

In a local paper in southwestern Georgia, two people were arrested for taking packages off the porch [“WALB.com, 2021] and in Midwestern United States of America multiple people were shot at a health clinic in the Minnesota [youtube.com, 2021]. There are few words for false love and deception but when you think of how you came into this world at birth naked, it makes you think you bore all—-the Truth; you could not hide your true self as you innocently entered the world as a sinner.[“Job had long understood that we are born into this world with nothing, and that when we die, we leave this world equally empty-handed. He was naked when his mother brought him into the world, through much pain and travail, and at his departing he would similarly be naked - for from dust we are made and to dust we shall all return.
