Rejection and Hope

11 Jan rejection
There is hope for you….

By Minister Kellie

“By definition, rejection is a two-edged sword. It can come into a person when that person is rejected (denied love and acceptance) and it can cause as much damage even when the person perceives that they are being rejected. The rejection is real to him, regardless if it is real or not. Rejection can also come out of a person when they refuse to agree to, submit to, or believe an established norm. i.e. rebellion, stubbornness, or refusal to believe truth” (Null, 1996)

How does this affect those who have been on either side of that sword?  Well, rejection is the root of all other heart issues. It causes fear and pride. A person who accepts rejection with acceptance will experience fear. If he refuses the rejection  then pride enters.  All fruit of rejection is classified as works of the flesh.

How did this affect me? I felt rejected most of my life. As a little girl, I was the only blonde haired person in my family. Not to mention that my mother told me that I was “the milkman’s daughter” on various occasions, especially when she was introducing me to friends that would stop over. When you are 3, if your mother tells other people you are the milkman’s daughter, you tend to start asking questions to yourself. Was it true?  ”No” it wasn’t. The enemy tended to use my mother a lot as I was growing up. She always made comments about how different I was from the rest of my siblings. She was not an affectionate individual and this too played into the rejection card. She had a hard time showing love and receiving love. This is hard for a little girl who needs the real unconditional love of her mother. I always felt different in my family, as if there was something different about me. I felt like a round peg in a square hole. Rejection allows the enemy to set up camp in you if you allow it to. It’s like a huge open door for the enemy to bring all of his friends.  Satan tells you that you have every right to feel anger and hatred for the wrong that has been done to you, God says, let me use it to teach you humbleness.

 This is what happened to me. Just as God allowed Saul to feel rejection, Saul used it to turn his heart against David for fear that he would take Saul’s place as king, to the point where he wanted to kill him. If Saul would have just repented, things would have been different for him.   God uses judgement and rejection to delete pride out of us. Saul was chosen because of his humility and rejected because of his pride.

God’s breaking and refining hand  enabled  me to see that He allowed all of the rejection in my life to bring me to the point that I buckled under the weight of it. Whether I had received rejection by my mother’s comments, or I refused the truth and lived by my own standards, it brought me to the same conclusion. Apart from the Lord, I could not do anything. I couldn’t remove it by myself and I couldn’t be saved unless He saved me. With the Holy Spirit breaking my heart, drawing me to the Cross—- it produced Godly sorrow for doing things my own way for all of those years. With my heart turned, I repented and God saved me.

Clean Water in a Natural Disaster

8 Jan

It’s a possibility that in the times that we live in any disaster can happen so it is good to know how to prepare in case of emergencies.   Here is a way to purify water using nothing more than Clorox bleach and a clean container. This will make water drinkable and also bathable and it costs pennies compared to the filtration systems out there. It is the most reliable way of sanitizing your dishes and get drinking water at the same time.  Without water or electricity, it will be difficult to sanitize anything. This is why Clorox is a great alternative. Below are the tables and how much Clorox to use.

     

       *Ratio of Clorox Bleach to Water for Purification

  • 2 drops of Regular Clorox Bleach per quart of water
  • 8 drops of Regular Clorox Bleach per gallon of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Regular Clorox Bleach per five gallons of water
  • If water is cloudy, double the recommended dosages of Clorox Bleach.

Let water stand until particles settle. Pour the clear water into an uncontaminated container and add Regular Clorox Bleach per the chart.* Mix well. Wait 30 min. Water should have a slight bleach odor. If not, repeat dose.  Wait 15 min. Sniff again. Keep an eyedropper  taped to your emergency bottle of Clorox Bleach, since purifying small amounts of water requires only a few drops.

Mix 1 tablespoon Regular Clorox Bleach with one gallon of water. Always wash and rinse items first, then let each item soak in Clorox Bleach Sanitizing Solution for 2 minutes. Drain and air dry. Make sure you sanitize any containers you are going to use for storing water in. 

Clorox says “think of it like this, 1 bottle of Clorox is like 3,800 gallons of drinking water.”

Who wouldn’t want have that piece of mind in hard times? I know that if my body could only exist 3 days without water, I would want to know where my next drink would be coming from. Anyone who has been without water for any length of time knows to go thirsty is “painful.”  I would not want to watch my children suffer either. 

Stocking up on Clorox is an inexpensive way of insuring that you will have the water you need when you need it the most.

Charismatic Divination

3 Jan dancing worship

“New Age Divination is a branch of white magic whose primary goal is to obtain secret knowledge, particularly supernatural insight into the future.  Likewise, religious divination is the art of producing results beyond human ability and claiming that Almighty God is the source, when in reality, invisible superhuman entities manifested the result” (Idolatry,2011)

I cannot explain how many times this happened to me in the religious organization. I also participated in this type of divination unknowingly in the first years. As God began to open my eyes, I began to see the error in this type of participation and promptly stopped when He would reveal things.

One event was when I was worshiping during the beginning of service. We would always open service with music. The main objective was to “get closer to God.” This is impossible because once a person is saved, God never leaves us. We are to walk in faith, not by sight or feeling. This did not stop me every week however in the beginning to seek out that “feel good feeling.” In my ignorance, I believed that I had to “strive” to have a relationship with the Lord. This is an “out-and-out” sin as the Bible states we cannot please God without faith. While in worship one Sunday, about 2 years before I had left the “church” for good, I was in full worship, totally given over to emotion, when only the Holy Spirit could have  intervened. I know the Lord spoke to me on that day..He didn’t speak to me very often and it wasn’t like He was in my ear..His words were, “They worship me with their mouths, but their hearts are far away from me!”

This stopped me in my tracks and I became sober in an instant. No longer lost in an altered state, His words pierced me and it was the beginning of the end of the fantasy for me. Reality set in, my arms and hands went to my sides and from then on, I never, danced or worshiped in that way again.

Thinking that there was something wrong with me, I sought to find out instead of heeding what was said to me on that day. I eventually understood that the desire that was in me was never of God to begin with and when it was removed by God, I never felt the need to do it anymore. I believe God felt that “I was ready for the Truth.”

Since then I have never looked back but have kept my hand to the plow, looking forward. Like my mentor Pam, I do not want to become a pillar of salt by going back to Egypt. Gone are the days of doublemindedness. I have one mind, one heart and they belong to the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
