TODAY IS FIGHTING-TO BE HEARD
As you may know in order to fight one must have an opposing force to fight with! And from my past experience (fighting many fights) there is only one winner and one looser. Sadly our flesh (self) is the very source of all fighting, and it will continued to be employed by the evil that is hidden in the heart as long as we live. "You nest of poisonous snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? Your mouths say everything that is in your heart." (Matthew 12:34). So as far as I'm concerned this settles this blog, however as far as the many that are still yet, FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD I must tarry on.
Ask yourself how long have you been fighting the same fight all while believing you're fighting for a good reason? I mean really if it's a good reason, you should be prevailing in some areas of your life (spirit, soul, body) since you're the one that is FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD. The truth of the matter is the flesh (self) always wants to prove to flesh that it’s the “good” in the fight.
Whether you agree or not there isn’t anything good in the flesh it is innately evil, and prideful to its own aliance (the heart). It’ll argue until it “feels” as though it has won. “People like that are proud. They don’t understand anything. They like to argue more than they should. They can’t agree about what words mean. All of this result in wanting what others have. It causes fighting, harmful talk, and evil distrust. It stirs up trouble all the time by people among people whose minds are twisted by sin.” (1 Timothy 6:4-5).
Did you know that fighting is nothing more than the heart (soul) employing the flesh (self) to emotionally fight to hide the darkness that is really hidden in the heart (soul). Isn’t this interesting, how many of you at one time or another have FIGHT-TO-BE HEARD (arguing, profanity, physical altercations, property damage, etc.) without taking into consideration that something other than the physical body (flesh) is activating all outward fighting in order to remain inwardly. Mm-mm.
This brings to mind this simple scripture concerning what is really behind that body (flesh) that is always FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD. “God, create in me a pure heart. Give me a new spirit that is faithful to you.” (Psalm 51:10). Did King David just say that our heart (soul) isn’t pure? Absolutely! Therefore if our heart that is troubled with evil can’t be seen, then the only way the evil can be heard is through a physical (flesh) expression. This scripture alone tells me that the physical (flesh) representation of us all isn’t the one that is FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD; it’s the heart that is FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD through the flesh.
Did you know that the flesh (physical) will never, ever be heard in the ears of God? “God is spirit. His worshipers must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24). So as far as His followers (us) FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD in reference to debates, foolish talk, and destroying folk all to be heard is our evil heart FIGHITNG-TO-BE HEARD for its own underlying evil purpose.
Point in case, a very long time ago, someone invited me to have breakfast, and bible study with them. I was excited, because they had just bought a few new versions of the bible, and a commentary. As I comfortable sat down at “their” table, they started to ask me my opinion on a certain scripture, never in my thoughts did I think this person would become angry at my response. They went on and on, and I went on, and on (flesh on flesh) till finally they said something negative about my children in reference to their life. I thank God for allowing my sister to be there, because I was ticked (flesh), and in my defense my sister was angered (flesh) and it became an even bigger mess.
As we went on and on, they said to me “You know I’m right about it, and now you’re leaving because of it.” Be reminded this was during the time that God was revealing to me the trichotomy (spirit, soul, and body) and I wasn’t sure about either one. Surely all I wanted to do was be heard, and it didn’t matter the outcome. My flesh was crying, and pleading with much profanity (flesh) for them to step outside their home, and say these things to my face. Ridiculous! My sister was ranting and raving with much profanity as I was all while begging, and pleading with me to get in my car and leave. I left their and went over to my mother’s house to tell her all about it, and the first thing she said was “You know how this person feels about you, why in the world would you sit down and eat with them, and discuss the bible?” My response “I thought they were sincere, because this time the bible was involved.” Her reply “mm-hum they were feeding you to make a fool out of you with the word of God.”
Although my mother was trying to reason with me, my flesh still yet, wanting to be heard, I called my other sisters, and they wanted to hurt this person as well. Although this person is no longer in our lives, they were so very instrumental in how I accept folk invitations according to my stomach and the word of God. As Joyce Meyer say so adamantly “Hurting people, hurt people” Indeed I was hurting, just as they were hurting, and the outcome was hurting each other.
My friends, it taken me many years to understand the mischief, and evil that is in the heart of us all, and how it repeatedly employs the flesh to be heard. What I found out according to this incident was that my heart was broken into pieces way before this person came along to challenge that brokenness. That’s right! I believe everything that happened to me that morning, happened for me regardless of how painstricken I might have felt aftewards. Surely it challenged me even the more to explore spirit, soul, and body.
This reminds me of this scripture “Watch out for the false prophets. They come to you pretending to be sheep. But on the inside they are hungry wolves. You can tell what they really are by what they do.”(Matthew 7:16). Do you see now, how the evil that Jesus is speaking of is internal “But on the inside they are hungry wolves.” Furthermore do you see how the pretense of evil can easily become exasperated when the other person isn’t in compliances? “You can tell what they really are by what they do.” Please get this, in order for evil to pretend to be the benefactor of good; it must pretend that it is wonderful, concerned, nice, kind, sensitive, loving, compassion, etc. I mean really, why would evil pretend its evil, not even the world with its many polluted morals, values and standards want evil to be evil.
The only reason that I was FIGHTING-TO-BE HARD with that person was, because I felt no one (since my father) had fought for me to be heard. Therefore my flesh was only expressing the depth of the pain that was in my heart.I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll continue to say it “I’m busy fighting you, because I’m tired of fighting me.” And until we clearly understand that FIGHTING-TO-BE HEARD is the heart fighting outward with the flesh we'll continue on fighting!
Be reminded our fight isn’t with people, places, or things, our fights starts with the powers of our own evil heart layered with much pain and evil. “But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart. Those are the things that make you ‘unclean. Evil thoughts come out of the heart. So do murder, adultery, and other sexual sins. And so do stealing, false witness, and telling lies about others.” (Matthew 15:18-19).
