TODAY IS SO MISUNDERSTOOD
This expression is clearly stating that an ambiguous statement or presentation can't be comprehended in the contents of its delivery. Did you know the world in which we dwell will never comprehend our belief system (Jesus Christ Lord Savior)?
Did you know that folk who argue/brawl with folk to understand the understanding of what they are presenting is just as ignorant as they folk who refuse to understand. Ouch! I declared ouch, because I used to be one of them folk. "Anyone who serves the Lord must not fight. Instead, he must be kind to everyone . He must be able to teach. He must not hold anything against anyone. He must gently teach those who oppose him. Maybe God will give a change of heart to those who are against you. That will lead them to know the truth." (2 Timothy 2:24-25). This scripture clearly tells me that when I was likewise arguing with folk about the word of God it wasn't God, it was all of me, me, me (flesh).
What I've found out from my own life, and plenty of observations is that folk who are being MISUNDERSTOOD for Jesus have a bounty on their head. By that I mean Satan will do anything and everything to try and destroy that person from sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. "It is written, Because of you, (Jesus) we face death all day long. We are considered as sheep to be killed." (Romans 8:36). I mean really, isn't this what Jesus experienced, and eventually (voluntarily) succumbed to. Since Jesus was SO MISUNDERSTOOD so will you be. "What I'm about to tell you is true. A servant is not more important than his master. And a messenger is not more important than the one who sends him" (John 13:16).
My friends, folk will never understand who you are in Jesus Christ, and his Saving Grace mission in which you relentlessly take passage upon each and everyday. “Some people don't have the Holy Spirit. They don't accept the things that come from God. Things like that are foolish to them. They can't understand them. In fact, such things can't be understood without the Spirit's help.” (1 Corinthians 2:14). Paul is UNDERSTANDABLY stating that Gods children will always be SO MISUNDERSTOOD while on this earth, because of the “Holy Spirit” that richly dwells in the believer, is minus in the unbeliever. How kindly of God to grant us a constant operative part of himself to assist us in the endurance while being SO MISUNDERSTOOD.
This brings to mind my own former life (every Saint has a past) in which I SO MISUNDERSTOOD God, his folk, and the things concerning him. Ignorantly when folk would say godly things to me, it would come through one ear and go out the next. By that I mean I didn't "care" to understand anything they were saying, and it was boring to sit and listen to something that I didn't care about. Therefore God allowed my eyes to blinded and my mind to be closed to anything about him. I mean really so who fault was it that I SO MISUNDERSTOOD what the followers of Jesus were trying to convey to me. "The Lord has blinded their eyes. He has closed their minds. So they can't see with their eyes. They can't understand with their minds. They can't turn to the Lord. If they could, he would heal them." (John 12:40).
This brings to mind, when I used to wear my little skirts to church, and I believed I was being SO MISUNDERSTOOD. I vaguely remember this one day, rest assure I can verbatim repeat the conversation. There were these two older ladies of my former church who asked me '”Did I have a slip on under my short skirt?” The first thing I did was become defensive, and hurled “God wants my soul, not my clothes. He said I should come as I am.” At the time I wasn't aware there was an evil luring sexual spirit that had been unleashed against the church (there is such a spirit to entice the folk of God into sin). Many of us should be compelled to go into a depth study of “Spiritual Warfare” you'll be shocked at the many evils that employ the world to attack the church, and the many ignorant Christians that activate these evil. I can testify to it, all in all I've seen them in action numerous times.
Do you see now, how I SO MISUNDERSTOOD what they were saying. I had no idea that my flesh was being ignorantly employed to wear short skirts to church to entice men to fall into sin. Tragically this evil has been the fate of many good Christians. Yet still, today this spirit is aggressively engrossing the church with many atrocities of sins. “We have not received the spirit of the world. We have received the Spirit who is from God. The Spirit helps us understand what God has freely given us.” (1 Corinthians 2:12). Yet again, Paul is saying to us that Gods children are on a different vertical, therefore this world is incapable of UNDERSTANDING that which their not capable to UNDERSTAND.
Please understand, that if the world hasn't confessed the sinners prayer, and is living a life of faith in Jesus Christ you'll continue to be SO MISUNDERSTOOD to this world. “Say with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord.” Believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved. With your heart you believe and are made right with God. With your mouth you say that Jesus is Lord. And so you are saved. “ (Romans 10:9-10).
This is how I see it, when I present my relationship about Jesus to the world (minus God) I'm asking the world to believe that an entity (Jesus) is greater than their self (flesh). This is unbelievable for the world to UNDERSTAND. Therefore I must present them the gospel through my lifestyle ( appearance/works) which is an reflection of the Jesus in which I'm asking them to understand. It taken me many years to understand that the Jesus in me will draw the world to want what I have (Jesus), which in turn will compel them to UNDERSTAND what I understand about Jesus. " But I am going to be lifted up from the earth. When I am, I will bring all people to myself. " (John 12:32). This is one of those scriptures that have nourished me into not caring about being SO MISUNDERSTOOD.
