Everyone is different and our major difference is not in our beliefs but in our comprehension levels. When you can understand that our minds function at different comprehension levels, you'll have better relationships because many of our broken relationships were broken due to misplaced expectations.
You wouldn't be angry with a child for not being able to comprehend profound mysteries.. You wouldn't expect him to have the same empathy level as a 50 year old... because developmentally, it is not likely that they would... Yet, there are always exceptions to the rules. In the same way, just because someone is of legal age or even if they're older than you are, it doesn't mean that they'll automatically have the ability to reason on your level or have the same level of inner dialogue as you do.
So when you judge them for not reacting the way that you would, it's because you assume that they know what you know, think like you think, learn like you learn, understand what you understand...etc... and they don't.
So with that said, many times we wrongfully judge people not understanding that they have certain limitations and simply aren't capable of meeting our expectations. You have to re-adjust your expectations of certain people. Give people a little grace and understanding. Not everyone thinks like you and that's a good thing.

You know I believe that for most of us what we do is a "calling" . It's more than a job, more than a way to pay the bills and put food on the table. I recognized it as such in my own life very early on as a Nurse . You want to make a difference, to comfort, to help those who are hurting mentally, physically and emotionally. Most of the time I am very thankful to Father for the gifts that He has given me as a Nurse, compassion, empathy and a single minded determination to do whatever it takes to help. But then there are times when you lose a patient that you've witnessed fighting to live, or see a child or an old person that is neglected, abused, forgotten or thrown away.... and you can do nothing to help. All you can do is stand by and watch them suffer... Today I was faced with a terrible knowledge of a medical matter that my pt. is frantic to know. The pt. and the family. Yet as a Nurse I can do nothing on my own. Nothing but pray for them which is probably the very best thing I could do anyway. I can't give them the results that while bringing a small measure of releif at knowing will also most certainly devestate them. Sometimes I grow weary..... and i wonder "how long Lord, how long till You come back and end the suffering ?" But I know that when tomorrow comes I will get out of bed say a prayer of thanksgiving for another day and go do it all over again. That, after all , is what a calling is.....

Even so come, L_rd Yeshua !by Mark Watkins
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amin. Even so come, L_rd Yeshua . ~ Revelation 22:20
Shalom Yeedeem , Bracha HaShem ! As we look around this world , we can tend to take our eyes off our eternal home , but Shamayim ~ Heaven is awaiting us , for those who truly have Yeshua HaMashiach as their personal L_rd and Saviour !
Many times , when confronted by events that seem so overwhelming , we need to keep this ever present in our hearts !
That said , I would like to bring you to these two chapters of Revelation, the last two chapters in Revelation in the Holy Writ , which give us a look into "eternity future." We will see a description of the "Chadash Yirushalyim ~ New Jerusalem" the eternal habitation for all "believers" in Yeshua HaMashiach .
Perhaps later , I will go more in detail on Chadash Yirushalyim , but for now, I will not take the space to re-describe the "Chadash Yirushalyim ," you can read what Yochanan ~ John the "Revelator" wrote about the "city of the future." However, I would love to point out several unique aspects of this eternal home for you and me to ponder over .
First, it will be hanging in "space" above the "new earth" for eternity. This is concluded by the fact that Yehez'qel ~ Ezekiel 37:26 and verse 28 , which tell us that the Temple that Yeshua builds will be in the "earthly Yirushalyim ~ Jerusalem" on the "new earth" forever.
There will be no Temple in the New Jerusalem, chapter 21, verse 22, because Abba G_d and Yeshua are both there. The Chadash Yirushalyim will be the eternal home for all Believers in Yeshua , with the "Jewish believers" and "Gentile believers" on the New Earth.
Just for the record , there are no "streets" of gold in the Chadash Yirushalyim . Notice the word "street" is not in the plural, the way so many people speak of them or sing about them. In the New Jerusalem there is only one "street", Revelation 21:21 and 22:2. Therefore, we all live on "main-street" in the Chadash Yirushalyim , not on some "back street".
Furthermore , there will also be a "tree of life" in the Chadash Yirushalyim , 22:2, where we will take "Per'ee ~ fruit" to eat through eternity. I’m not sure exactly what it means when Yochanan ~ John wrote, "for the healing of the nations." What I am excited about is that we will "eat" forever.
Oh , as I share this , my 200th. note , there is so much more I could share with you from these two chapters. I do hope that you will take some time and read both chapters for yourselves . But , let me close with this ; which I find the most comforting , Yeshua repeats this phrase three times , that phrase is, "Behold, I come quickly."
Now to chapter 22:7 , Yeshua adds to the common phrase, "blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this Sefer ~ book." That is a description of "how to live."
Then in , verse 12 , Yochanan wrote after the statement that "He was coming quickly," "and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." This is why we live according to the book. This verse also tells us how our eternal "eternal job description" is determined.
The last utterance of the "quick coming" of Yeshua is found in verse 20, the next to last verse in the Holy Writ . He has Yochanan's response to the "I come quickly." Yochanan offers up this prayer 2,000 years ago that has not yet been answered, "Even, so come L_rd Yeshua."
Chaverim , I don't know about you , but as for me , this is my prayer on a daily basis, as I eagerly await His shout for me to join Him in the air at the Rapture. I pray that it is your prayer as well. Remember, Yochanan had received all the prophetic passages that will be fulfilled as we lead up to the Second Coming of Mashiach Yeshua , and Yochanan’s prayer was for Yeshua to come right then. Suffice it to say , if you are a true Believer in Yeshua , you also want to see Yeshua , even so come Elohim Yeshua HaMashiach !!!.

Good deeds, a kind heart, St. Peter, the Virgin Mary , a priest, cannot absolve you from sin or grant you a place in heaven...they do not have the authority. It is written is scripture that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way. Remember ppl who have passed cannot answer prayers. Having pictures of the dead, candles burning to dead "saints" is idolatry the Catholic Church is a great abomination, the scriptures states that we are God's saints, would you then pray to me once I have passed on?
Would you celebrate the death of the innocent children who were murdered at sandy hook? No, right? But this is what you do when you celebrate christmas as it's origins begun with child sacrifice. The Catholic church has whored herself to many different pagan religions to swell the number of converts and have compromised and disobeyed Elohim's commandemts. You say you are against Satanism and will never allow your children to take part in such evil. Yet you celebrate christmas, halloween & Easter, which are satanic. In christmas pedophilia, incest, child sacrifice & honoring demons is prevalent. Easter is a pagan fertility right involving orgies with children, adults, homosexuality etc..and Halloween is a day of human sacrifice and ppl openly display their allegiance to satan. You may say "It's all in fun".....you lie to your children. Is lying ever ok? If you research the origins of these days you will find that "Jesus" has nothing to do with these days. Jesus was not born on Decemeber 25th and Easter should be kept far away as this is the time of Passover and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Open your eyes. It is a mass deception and just because it is prevelant does not make it right. .All the traditions in these "holidays" are of occult, pagan origin including the christams tree, mistetoe etc....
(Psalm 109: 1-5)
1 Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
2 for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me:
they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
3 They compassed me about also with words ofhatred;
and fought against me without a cause.
4 For my love they are my adversaries:
but I givemyself unto prayer.
5 And they have rewarded me evil for good,
and hatred for my love.
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great amatter a little fire kindleth!
For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Many peoplesay that ANY religion a man chooses is “okay” with them. This may be true for that person( and for satan) but it isnot true to Elohim (God) He does care. The first 4 commandments of the 10
( there areactually 613) are constantly broken,disobeyed and ignored.
This is not a debate on Religion. As we know there is no “right” religion because it’s about a personal relationship with Yeshua (Jesus).
Throughout my life I have encountered unrighteous judgement. Strangers and even family slander my name. Albeit, I have my flaws I do what I am able to do to keep my God’s Mitzvot (commandments). I am an educated woman who is completely in love with YHVH.I am not ashamed.
There will always be someone who will speak ill of you. What they don’t know that as servants and children of El Roi ( the Lord that see’s all)
we have the advantage of having these words slide right off of us and bounce right back to the person who spoke them. BE CAREFUL when you speak about others. From personal experience I’ve had many speak behind my back calling me “mentally ill” or a “lost cause”.
These assumptions are a fabrication made by people who are judgmental and quite possibly even envious.
This my dear friends is slander. What is silly is that being mentally ill is not an insult yet ignorant people use it to “insult” their fellow man. This comes from a lackof education in the dynamics of Psychology.
The unsaved (those who have NOT accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior and have apersonal relationship with Him) cannot understand the things of the Spirit.
Their physical body is alive but their spirit is dead. Therefore they are the true “WalkingDead”.
Satan is the father of lies, remember that. Gossip is frowned upon as idle talk & we should be very careful in what we speak. Words can be more harmful than a slap on the face. So before you open your mouth remember scripture. I have overcome many things. When I hear what the latest rumors are about me, I laugh. I wonder do these people have anything better to do? And if they want to know the truth, why not ask?
Before you speak out on other people and label them, review your own life. Remember the Words of Yeshua.
“ HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN ….LET HIM CAST THE FIRST STONE”
A WOMAN/MAN OF HONOR USES DISCRETION
