7-16-2012- ENGAGING IN THE AFFAIRS OF THE WORLD


11 TIMOTHY 2: 3-4 = 

(3) YOU THEREFORE, ENDURE HARDNESS, AS A GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS, THE CHRIST.

(4) NO MAN THAT WARS, ENTANGLES HIMSELF WITH THE AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE;  THAT HE MAY PLEASE HIM, (JESUS), WHO HAS CHOSEN HIM TO BE A SOLDIER.


"REMARKS"

IT IS SO EASY TO GET ENTANGLED IN THE EVENTS OF THE WORLD AND MISS THE MARK, AND DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM GOD, YAH'WEH, AND JESUS, YAH'SHUA.

EXAMPLE: YOUR CHILDREN USUALLY ARE THE MAIN CULPRITS OF YOUR DIS-ENGAGEMENT FROM YOUR RELATION WITH GOD, YAH'WEH, AND JESUS, YAH'SHUA, BECAUSE YOU TRY TO MOLD THEM MORE THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD, THAN CHILDREN OF GOD.

IT SEEMS TO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN, YOU ALLOW THEM TO ENGAGE IN WORLDLY THINGS, SO AS NOT TO MAKE THEM STAND OUT AS WEIRD, OR UNSOCIABLE CHILDREN, AND THROUGH PEER PRESSURE, THEY, AND YOU, WANT TO LET THEM MELT INTO THE CLASS OR GROUP OF KIDS, WHOSE SPIRIT MAY NOT BE SO GOOD, AND LEADS THEM INTO TROUBLE AND REBELLION.

IS IT HARD TODAY TO KEEP YOUR CHILDREN GOD BOUND? YES, BUT, IT STILL IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS PARENTS, TO GUIDE YOUR CHILDREN IN THE ADMONITION AND WORD OF GOD, YAH'WEH, SO THEY DON'T BECOME CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL.

OTHER EXAMPLES WOULD BE, INVOLVED IN TOO MANY FLESHLY OUTLETS, OR GOING TO TOO MANY WORLDLY PLEASURES, OR NOT GIVING MORE TIME TO THE WORD OF GOD, YAH'WEH, THAN YOU GIVE TO TV, OR WHATEVER STEALS YOUR TIME, THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU SPIRITUAL GROWTH.

IT'S ALL ABOUT STAYING IN TOUCH WITH SPIRITUAL MATTERS AND GROWTH, THAT KEEPS YOUR STATUS AS A GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS, THE CHRIST, STRONG.
