About Anger (another segment of "Empowering Encouragement Now!")

Season 6, Ep. 123

My morning spiritual devotion was on anger, taken from Jonah 4:4 and 4:9 where "God said to Jonah, ‘Do you do well to be angry?’" God’s question was not a probe about morality- right or wrong- but a question of Job’s wisdom or use of good judgement in kindling within himself the fires of anger. Anger is not always or necessarily sinful, but it has such a tendency to run wild that whenever it displays itself, we should be quick to question its character, with this enquiry, "Do you do well to be angry?" Why should we be irritated with children, irate with employees, and intensely angry with companions? Is such anger honorable to our Christian profession, or glorifying to God? If we cannot control our tempers, what has grace done for us? Man's anger can be legitimate (2Sam 12:5). but the Old Testament Scriptures warn that anger can be outrageous (Prov 27:4), and stirs up strife (Prov 29:22). In contrast, it is said that the man slow to anger appeases strife (Prov 15:18) and a wise man turns from it (Prov 29:8). The next time you feel the emotion of anger rising up within you, ask your self the question God asked the prophet Jonah- "Do you do well to be angry?"

The Icon of the Beast

Season 7, Ep. 142
In the post-modern world in which we now live, a rational faith has been jettisoned for mystery and mysticism where metaphor is at the heart of spirituality. The emotional response generated by feelings is at the core of idolatry because it appeals to our physical senses. Fallen man longs to place the focus of his faith on something tangible in the physical realm. The human craving for this will finally be satisfied in the image of the beast, which they fashion with their own hands, comes to life and breathes blasphemy and death.Revelation 13:14-15(A metaphor is a figure of speech that makes a comparison between two unlike things. As a literary device, metaphor creates implicit comparisons without the express use of “like” or “as.” Metaphor is a means of asserting that two things are identical in comparison rather than just similar. This is useful in literature for using specific images or concepts to state abstract truths. https://literarydevices.net/metaphor/)Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!

Don't Fear Bad News!

Season 7, Ep. 140
It seems as if each day brings increasing bad news, both in the United States and across the globe. The person who follows God's lead will not fear bad news but instead face the challenge from a confident heart that trusts in the Lord. As we rely on the Lord and turn to Him in faith, we have the courage for duty and sustaining strength under adversity. Psalm 112 gives an overview of the traits of the Righteous; verse 7 brings us our empowering encouragement now..."He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in theLord."Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!
