Lots to discuss here!
First, let me ask you, how well does the OTHER WAY work?
The world does not love their enemies, do they?
And how is THAT WORKING out?
I have never been good at door matting or any other types of mats.
But I do want to do this, and it requires PRAYER, the NEW SPIRIT,
Example: We used to....notice that tense there, because for
7 years, I said YEARS, it was VERY TENSE with an enemy.
An enemy want to destroy you, take what is yours etc.
And this was a very wealthy person wanting what we had
.... for nothing .. and what a PLAN he had.
He would RUIN US. He put 7 groups, large groups next door
in a shack that was about 400 sq. feet wide, that were
DRUGGIES, SEX addicts, and heavy acid ROCK bands
shaking our walls at 4 a.m. in the morning.
Can you get this picture ....at all?
We PRAYED, and I knew the scriptures....so...how to?
It is 4 a.m., and the walls are shaking...and that is about
50 feet away!!
We thought....they think this is fun, having a party.
So, we GO TO this party, take something.
We get up, get our nice wine, and go pound loudly
on their door.
Finally, they HEAR us, and stagger out, drugged out.
We say Hi, we re here to join you, and hold up the wine!
We MEANT IT. We were not lying. We had to get into
this frame of mind.
The music CUT RIGHT OUT, and long story short,
we did a variety of these things for SEVEN years,
and many of those people came real close to
THANKING US, and changed their lives.
We did come to love them, and worked to love
Today the enemy has respect and is MOVING AWAY.
It s the only thing that does work.
And best of all? It surely changes US.
We start to really want what s best for others,
Challenge? You bet. Worth it? The ONLY WAY.
