PUFFED UP FOR ONE AGAINST ANOTHER and Casting Stones!
The Key Word PUFF is noted in the Holy Word of God at least eight times. Our Brother Paul used this word more than any other writer of the word. In 1 Corinthians 4:6, Paul writes, so we might learn not to think of men above that which is written, in so that no one of us be puffed up for one against another!
We know not of Derek Chauvin's election concerning the one and only Jesus! He may have prayed like David (Psalm 51). We also know not the plans The Lord has for this man, after all Moses was a murdered before the Lord called him back to Egypt.
WE need to reconcile the fact that Derek Chauvin may one day lead the Heavenly Mass Choir and if we have issues with this reality then we just may not be Heaven Bound.
We have lost or we've never had an ETERNAL perspective.
This here earth is a HOTEL, it's all just temporary housing! Not a one of us is getting out of here with breath flowing freely through our lungs. Our assignment is TO LOVE our neighbors everywhere, which includes Social Media! And, even still our assignment is also TO LOVE our enemies.
The LOVE of Jesus Christ is the only force fully capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
HOW many people must die before we choose to live, love and lead like Jesus. We are puffed up for one against another. And the one we are puffed up for is dead. The Lord has much to say in his most Holy Word, about the dead.
The truth is man's guilty verdict has nothing to do with a pardon from the one and only Jesus and we all need to be ready to co exist with those who have been forgiven of earthly sins or we may not get to even touch those pearly gates!
Let's make sure we're ready to see the muderous Moses, David and Paul in the heavenly realm ... Because Jesus is Justice and has the final say!
When the one and only Jesus serves up eternal JUSTICE we won't have any time to puff up and post what is already wildly known to Social Media! Stay on the housetop and keep on plowing them there fields because a whole lot of forgiven MURDERS of many colors sizes and shapes gonna be caught up ...
Oh and in the Book of First Corinthians, Paul also writes about a NEW LUMP, one that is unleavened or not PUFFED UP because Passover helps to flatten the curve of an all out epidemic of puffedness of pride and prejudice in a verdict we are all super guilty of!
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at him.
His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.
1 Corinthians 4:6
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
1 Corinthians 4:18
Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you.
1 Corinthians 4:19
But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.
1 Corinthians 5:2
And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1 Corinthians 8:1
Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. John 8:7 KJV
