Bound by the Manacles of Hatred

Learn to love one another,
because love is of God

I John 2:9
He that saith he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness even until now.
Psalm 34:21
Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
Psalm 97:10
Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserves the souls of his saints; he delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.

Some of the most unhappy people in the this world,

are those who hate others for no apparent reason.

Sad!

_________________________________

There is indeed a time to hate (Ecclesiastes 3:8). We ought to hate doing evil because it is contrary to what God desires of us. We should never plan or conspire with others to do that which is wrong.

Zechariah 8:17
And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.

Satan hates everyone and everything that is good or which pertains to honouring God through obedience to His Word. People who are held in the bondage of hate are in the unenviable position of godlessness because they are separated from God.

Hate is an extremely complex condition because it incorporates all kinds of other despicable  and destructive  fiends such as malice, strife, resentment, hostilities and more.

Hate is the outcome of a diseased soul which harbours guilt and bitterness spewed from an unforgiving heart. 

Anyone who is held in the manacles of hate will do anything at any time, and there is no limit to the damage that can result. Hate is a dangerous and violent social disease, which everyone should avoid in every way possible.

How to Avoid Hate

  1. Learn to forgive and let God deal with your enemy. You cannot change people; only God has that power;
  2. Get to know  God and His love, who does not care about past sins, skin colour, station in life or backgrounds. His Son Jesus Christ died for all (John 3:16);
  3. Love others and treat them the way you would like to be treated;
  4. Respect your fellowman: we are all living in this broken sinful and cruel world; and no one is perfect, neither are you;
  5. Acknowledge that we all make mistakes, including you;
  6. Show at least a modicum of humanity to the weaknesses of others knowing that you are not really any better than the person/persons whom you have chosen to hate;
  7. Learn to listen before arriving at conclusions, and do not follow evildoers because you will answer to God someday;
  8. Do not follow evildoers to do evil; you will pay for your evil deeds;
  9. Unbind yourself from the manacles of hate by asking Jesus Christ to come into your heart today. Do not delay!

Hate breaks: love unites.

Change comes from the inside.

Allow God’s Holy Spirit to renew your mind so that you can be delivered from the manacles of hate.

You Must Be a Fruit Bearer

John 15:4

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 

Every believer is called to serve Christ. This means we must be effective in our service. To bear fruit, we must be humble, submissive, and obedient to the One Who laid down His life for us on Calvary’s Cross.

We must obey God’s Word and follow the principles given to us, “…which if a man do, he shall even live in them;”  (Ezekiel 20:21).

The Obedient Servant

Everyone knows that a good employee often receives benefits which will encourage that person to remain in that employment. We are aware that not every employer is honest, so that even when an individual does his or her best, this might go unnoticed. The idea is that you are hired give your very best for the benefit of the business or organization. With the believer, God will never overlook any work that is done.
Hebrews 6:10
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have showed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

God will always honour obedience no matter how small the effort. The obedient servant of will always bear fruit because that person is conscious of his or her call to service by God. The individual will not work as an hireling; but instead will make every effort to please God through obedience to His Commandments. When we plant, we expect to reap from our labour. One grain will result in more grains at the time of harvest. No one labours without expecting some gain.

Therefore, when we plant seeds in the garden of God, we will be rewarded by the harvest which will result. Jesus said: Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (John 15:4). We must be obedient to bear fruit which will remain, and or the glory of God. 

The Disobedient Servant

The believer who does not obey God’s Word cannot bear fruit. People who take pleasure in making excuses for their sins, will never accomplish anything worthwhile for the benefit of the self or anyone else. Those persons would rather seek for the easy way out [taking the broad way], instead of abiding in the Vine even though this means persecutions and trials.
John 15:6
If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

This may sound harsh, but this is the Word of God. We must cannot live a life of service to the Lord without being fruitful. Unless we abide in the Vine, we will perish. Everyone must make the choice to serve the Lord in Spirit and in truth. Failing this, the individual is a failure and will have no part with Christ in eternity.

Obedience is the key for fruit bearing. We remain attached to the Vine, if we are obedient to Him. As a branch we need substance, which means we must remain faithful and obedient to be of any value in the service of the Lord. Moreover, effective fruit bearing will influence the world and lead sinners to repentance.

How do We Bear Fruit?

Everything we desire in this life, calls for effort: sweat, hard work, effort, determination, and so forth. We must give of ourselves; whether through earnest study or doing whatever is necessary to obtain the life which we desire that will give us peace of mind and reasonable contentment.  Similarly, to be successful in bearing fruit, we must observe the following:

You must Practice Reliability: How often are you available for service?
You must Practice Regular Church Attendance: Do you attend prayer meetings, Bible study, and regular church service? Are you only a Sunday worshipper;  church-goer; regular tithe payer; or big giver and believe that these will buy you a place in God’s Kingdom when Jesus comes?
You must Study and Know the Word: Do you know the Word? How much time do you spend in study? The Word cleanses and purifies (John 15:3) if we accept it by being obedient.
You must not be involved with Apostasy: What is apostasy? What did Jesus and the Apostles say about its presence in the church?
You must turn Away from Worldliness: Have you turned away from the world and its attractions with the intention to serve the Lord?
You must have a Renewed Mind: What do you understand by being “Born Again,” and the effect on the life of the believer? The Holy Spirit renews the mind through the process of sanctification (Romans 12:1-2; Titus 3:5).

This is where we begin in order to be attached to the True Vine – Jesus Christ. Every branch that does not bear fruit becomes useless to Christ and His work; that branch is cut off and thrown out. In the Laodician church world today, you will find many dead branches  which are fruitless. Some are spiritually sick, with all kinds of spiritual diseases from the types of germs being spread around in the churches in the name of Christianity. Those persons have lost their fervour if they ever had any.

It is indeed, time for repentance. Let us not look at the sins of the world. Turn your eyes on the inside; in the church and see the evil which prevail in many of those organizations. Pastors are no longer called by their titles; but they are now CEOs. The church is now a business. There is much more that could be said. It is time for leaders to return to their first love Jesus Christ and preaching the true Word of God (Revelations 1-3).

God Cares About You

God Cares.

I know He Cares.

He will never fail!

Never believe that God does not care for you. His interest in your welfare goes deeper than anyone would be able to imagine.

It may seems that God is distant and silent when things happen to us. Do not believe this. The devil will place negative things in your mind.

The truth is that God loves you and He is watching over you. Keep in mind that  He is not the author of hate and confusion. Although this may be the darkest point in your life, know that God is there with you. He is never far away and He cares for you. Take a moment to read the words below.

Isaiah 25:4
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

God is real. He cares about your situation. Do not give up no matter what you are facing or will ever face in your life again. Trust in the Great and Mighty God. He still works miracles; and He will work in your life if you ask for His help. He will do for you more than you could ever ask or think. As He has done for millions before you, ask for His help and see what He will do.

You have a choice to make to trust in the living Almighty God; the Creator of heaven and Earth. Your God. He loves you. Trust in Him today; right where you are believe that He is real and ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart. He will never turn you away, despite your sinful condition.

The next step is yours to make. Do not hesitate or feel embarrassed.

If you need someone to pray with you, call us or send an email. We will respond to you.

The Word is clear. Read what it says below:

Romans 10:9-10
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

You have no reason to wait. Simply ask Jesus to come into your heart and accept Him as you Saviour and Lord.

Encourage Yourself

Keep in mind that no matter what happens in our lives, God cares about us. Let us motivate one another to trust in God Who will help us in the times of trouble.

Shekinah Theological College – Georgia USA – For Online Learning

In times like these we need God’s grace to see us through. How do we encourage ourselves? Do we wait for others to do it? Do we trust in God? Do we have faith? Only you have the answers to these questions? Keep in mind that as you encourage yourself, you are healing your emotions; drying up your fears; and strengthening yourself. In this time of pain and discomfort, think about the following:

  1. Cultivate Healthy Thoughts: Be careful about the thoughts you think [Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Watch the things which enter your mind. Make sure they are true, clean, just, and of good report which will…

The Assurance of God’s Promises

God cannot fail

no matter how long we have to wait!

We can be assured that when God makes a promise to anyone, He will keep it. Unlike humans who fail, God will never fail. When we think of Abraham, God called him out from his country and made some very extraordinary promises to Him (Genesis 12, 15). Although it may have seemed an extremely long time for those promises to be fulfilled, yet God kept His word. God cannot fail no matter how long we have to wait.

The Promise

Hebrews 6:13-14
For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he swore by himself,
Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

A promise is a pledge to do something for someone. It is not effective until both parties are in agreement to the offer and acceptance. In this case, God guaranteed the promise by swearing on Himself, because there is none greater than He. Whatever He has promised you, there is every hope that it will be fulfilled. You have the assurance of His Word which does not fail (Psalm 12:6; Isaiah 55:8-11).

Since a promise is a future intention, no one knows when God will carry out His purpose, but it will be accomplished according to His will. All we have to do is to patiently wait in faith and with hope which is an anchor of the soul (Hebrews 6:19). It is what we have on which to hold as we wait with expectancy.

Patience

Hebrews 6:15
And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6), because He took the word of a holy God at heart and accepted it. Abraham did not delay in accepting the promise because He believed that what God had promised, He was able to perform (Numbers 23:19).

Abraham was indeed extremely patient. He waited 25 years from the day God spoke to him, until the fulfillment of the promise (Genesis 15; Genesis 21). How long are we willing to wait upon God? Do we give God an ultimatum when we believe that we have waited long enough?

What is patience? Patience concerning a promise made by God is a state of quiet contentment of trust, faith, confidence, and complete assurance with determination not to falter no matter what comes.  To humans 25 years may seem to be a long time that he waited. Maybe you have been waiting for a long time to have a promise realized; but time is in God’s hands and He does not mark it. We have time set up in seasons, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years. These have no meaning to God.

Let us just trust God’s promises and know that He will fulfill them no matter how long it takes. God’s word is true and will always prove to be so.

Stand on the Promises of God

Forever, thy Word is settled in Heaven
Psalm 119:89

God’s promises have no expiration date.

Every promise of God is guaranteed to be fulfilled.

No matter what!

Wherever we turn in the Scriptures, we will not find any report which shows that God has ever failed anyone after making  a promise. God’s Word is sure and He cannot change them once they have gone forth out of His mouth.

God’s Character
Isaiah 55:8-11
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not thither, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

We cannot compare God with mankind who fail even when they did not plan to fail. We are finite and can only attest to a minute fraction of success. God has all power and if He has made a promise to you, trust Him to work a miracle on your behalf. God will only work where He sees faith. If you do not have a need, you do not need a miracle. If you believe you can do without God, then do not criticize His ways.

Keep in mind that there is but one God Who is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. There is nothing that He cannot do and He is concerned for His creation: mankind.

All God asks of us is to trust Him,

serve Him and obey His Commandments.

God’s Word Can be Trusted

Whatever God says, we can always accept that word to be true and that He will keep them. When God speaks, He will never change His Word. His promises are true and faithful to all those who will trust in Him and take Him at His Word. Whatever the promise God has made to you, will come to pass according to His Word which has been tried throughout the ages and found to be true and faithful.

Psalm 12:6-7
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

When God speaks, whatever He says must be accomplished according to His desire: Isaiah 55:8-11.

Hebrews 6:16-19
God is not capricious. His Word is an Anchor which is steadfast, sure, and secure.
For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil;

God Does not Change

Mankind has the tendency to change similar to the climate. Not so with God! He keeps His Word, and we can trust Him even when we do not understand His ways or how things will turn out for us. We can take God’s Word as an anchor which remains steadfast to do whatever He says.

God’s thoughts and intentions are perfect (Psalm 19:7-8). This means that when the Word leaves God’s mouth, He will not go back and change it (Numbers 23:19).

God can be trusted to keep His Word!

Oppression

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind
.”
II Timothy 1:7

_________________________________

Oppression is a spirit which causes heaviness and presses down an an individual or people. It can be from the environment from insensitive leaders both inside and outside of the church.  Environmental oppression affects more people than we know. It is in the workplace, government agencies, politically generated, and through various forms of administrative behaviours from unscrupulous agents who are harsh and hateful.

Another type of oppression is emotional which is revealed in depression, all kinds of fears, bitterness, malice, anxiety, and uncontrolled anger, which are some of the symptoms. We also have mental oppression which causes the individual to be confused, depressed, and who will exhibit unusual behaviours. Spiritual oppression is in the form of legalism which controls and manipulates others. 

Why are people oppressed by others? Why do people become so weak that they cannot help themselves; yet they allow others to take advantage of them? In some situations, the individual accepts the menacing effect of oppression until there are opportunities for change. However, when oppression turns to anger it can behave as an uncontrolled fire ignited from long embedded negative treatment. 

Regardless of the origin of the oppression, the main source is satanic. Satan takes over a heart which is available and works in that individual or groups to torment and persecute those who have no forum or who have no voice. Nonetheless, when the opportunity arises for response, indeed behaviours become out of control.

Symptoms of Spiritual Oppression

  1. Discouragement: which can occur from no where and for no apparent reason. The individual may have a loving family, professional, and should be happy; but there is a hindering spirit which puts a damper on the thoughts and attitude towards life, people, and God. Discouragement can lead to loss of hope!
  2. Sinfulness: there are so-called Christians who straddle the fence whereby they believe they can live in sin and still serve God faithfully. There comes a time when the Holy Spirit  visits them. Rather than repent and turn away; they will resist and continue living in sin (Romans 6). One of the major sins which afflict people to cause oppression is the spirit of unforgiveness. It is a destructive and debilitating spirit which weakens due to spiritual and mental erosion. Unforgiveness results in hatred, bitterness and can affect an entire family or group. (Hebrew 12:15)
  3. Impure Thoughts: no Christian should entertain impure thoughts. The word strictly states: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusts in thee. (Isaiah 26:3). We keep our minds stayed on God by doing the following found in Philippians 4:8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. No one can argue against these truths.
  4. Lack of Knowledge of the Word: the church in general, is in a state of apostasy. Many leaders are no longer concerned about the truth of God’s Word to teach their people, but are teaching ideologies from the psychological arena because they do not care about the souls of men. If those people were called or if they called themselves, they will surely answer to God for leading His people astray. Nevertheless, the responsibility is not only with the leader, but with the member to study God’s Word to obtain knowledge (II Timothy 2:15). If people do not have concrete knowledge representing the truth, they will perish (Hosea 4:6).
  5. Apostasy: lack of knowledge leads to spiritual sickness and blindness which comes directly from apostasy. We have a message given to us by Jesus Christ and practiced by His Apostles who left it for the Church. To stray from those principles is evidence of apostasy. (Revelation 2:20).
  6. Sexual Impurities: there are people who claim Christianity while they live in all kinds of sexual impurities: abomination and adulteries. God’s Word is true concerning His attitudes relating to those behaviours found in Leviticus and Exodus. See also I Corinthians 6.
  7. The Occult: involvement in the occult is dangerous. It may seem innocent on the surface, but when you begin to peel back the layers you will find that Satan is at the root of those activities. Sin of itself is oppressive. What do you think about dabbling in the occult which is Satan’s forte. He works in darkness which is where you will find those situations. The Word teaches us to come out of them and this includes ungodly soul-ties. (II Corinthians 6:14-18).

Protect Yourself from the Spirit of Oppression

Even when you cannot change environmental situations, you have the responsibility to guard yourself from the destructive spirit of oppression. God has given us super-spiritual armour (II Corinthians 10:4-6) to fight against all kinds of demonic oppression (Ephesians 6). If anyone continues in sin, those weapons may not work  because no one can serve two masters.

  1. Stick to the truths of God’s Word, which is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6)
  2. Resist the enemy when he comes with contrary thoughts and wrong perspectives (I Peter 5:8)
  3. Trust God’s unchanging word (Psalm 12:6; Isaiah 55).
  4. Invite the presence of the Holy Spirit by living a life of holiness (John 14; Act 2). Allow Him to renew your mind (Romans 12:12; Titus 3:5). The anointing breaks the yoke!
  5. Depart from sinfulness, and practice forgiveness and love towards others (Matthew 6)
  6. Seek God’s extraordinary sustaining peace (Philippians 4:7; Isaiah 26:3)
  7. Concentrate on the facts about God’s Word which is unchanging (Hebrews 6:16-19).
  8. Keep this thought in mind: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” II Timothy 1:7. If you believe it, accept it and live it. Do not live in fear. God is able to help you if you put your trust in Him.
  9. Know who is the enemy (Ephesians 6:12).

The Spirit of Anger

James 1:19-20
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

Everyone gets angry at times; it is how we behave in those moments.

Ecclesiastes 7:9: Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger rests in the bosom of fools.

Being angry is not wrong; it is what we do with our anger.

Proverbs 14:29: He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalts folly.

Proverbs 12:16: A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covers shame. Proverbs 14:29: He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalts folly.

When we look into the depth of the present situation, we need to stop, and wonder, and ask ourselves, “Why?” Surely, there will be all kinds of answers and reasons given to validate people’s behaviours.

However, what is the real truth behind  all of this social and moral destruction? What really is behind it all? Who is behind it? Why are these things happening whereby one group views itself to be superior [it does not matter which one], and all others are inferior or second class citizens? Are we not all ONE human race?

Just in case some have not heard; there is but only one race of people dispersed in multiple ethnicities, colour and cultures; and coming from various regions, backgrounds, traditions, and societies with multiple likes and dislikes.

Our hue may differ; but we all have the same maladies and weaknesses as the other person. Why then is there so much hatred and disparities? Why have normal human beings experienced so much difficulties getting along with one another? What is wrong?

From a broad perspective, we could interject several  answers: pride, hastiness, lack of self-respect which leads to disrespect for others and their properties, self-importance, lack of dignity, envy, jealousies and a host of other noxious lava. We have seen the demonstration of malevolence in all its displays.

Nonetheless, despite all those fall out the major cause is SIN. Mankind has forsaken the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and the Saviour of all mankind Jesus Christ. How many believe in and express forgiveness? How many say “I am sorry” with sincerity? There is too much falseness, disparities, insincerities, partialities, which lead to lack of trust in all areas: spiritually and otherwise.

Sin comes from the devil, and when he takes over we can expect the ravages and destruction which we see. Satan has to work in a body and when he does, do not expect to see rational behaviours. Satan’s aim is to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10).

Until people realize that we are one human race with the same needs, feelings, and physical bearings, there will always be problems. Until people begin to return to God and acknowledge that He is still in control, they will continue to fight among themselves with the use of all kinds of tools.

People who are fighting among themselves and others and blaming them for their troubles have missed the message which says:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
There are satanic forces behind all that we are seeing in society and with the different groups. This is not just a political situation. It is spiritual and being fanned by foul demonic spirits whose aim is for the destruction of mankind: socially and spiritually.

We have to learn to forgive, overcome destructive agents such as hatred, prejudices, malice, and unforgiveness, with the desire for dialogue whereby we can discuss differences.

The Sound of Silence from the two most important groups!

Amazing how we find the politicians kissing babies and hugging certain people when they need a vote. In times like these where are they?

Then we have the tele-evangelists encouraging you to send your “seed offering” to them and God will bless you, but where are they now when they are needed the most?

Indeed, Christ is the only answer!

Regardless of which side you are on, make sure that like Joshua you will say and believe in your heart that you will serve the Lord:
Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

You, have a choice to make; we, have a choice to make whether to continue along the same path which only leads to pain and suffering or turn to God Who is our Helper (Psalm 121).

Be Encouraged: God loves you

Despite the weaknesses of mankind, God’s love never loses its power and value. God loves us no matter what our faults may be. Why not put your trust in Him today and allow Him to sort out your problems? He alone can do the impossible.

God is still on the throne.
He still rules!

II Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

My grace is sufficient for you. Even in the times of uncertainty, God still displays His love and concern for His people. The fact that we are going through the valley, is not an indication that God has forsaken His people.

Maybe you are telling yourself that you cannot take your circumstances another day, another minute, another moment. You may be questioning “Why me?” Let us not forget that the whole duty of man is to serve God and keep His Commandments. You will overcome these circumstances because you are not alone in this fight.
