Anger handled like a Christian

Truly, truly there are wise words that exist. Those words should come from one that is wise, but it does not guarantee his wisdom. Very conflicting it is, very confusing it is, yet if you dig deeper you will find that true wisdom is within actions. 

As it is written in 1 Corinthians 3:16-19 

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”

From this, you see that refraining from a matter or speaking peace over chaos, removing the desire to act on impulse when angry all poses more wisdom than the most articulate message that provokes thought. Yet it’s rare in this age and not glorified. The person in the fact that displays this true wisdom in these ways is typically abused mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You can say they have become a fool by the standards of the world because of this and why the Bible says to become this rather than let the temple of God be defiled. 

The reason there is no on the surface glory for this is that we are not to seek the wisdom of the world. The wisdom of the world acts on the impulse of anger and considers that reaction as wise due to its justification for another’s action. Yet through the protection of God’s temple, he comforts through his Holy Spirit that was sent to do this for us. We are also reminded through his comfort of truth. The truth that Love seeks not it’s own. It has voluntarily given its life. The emotions, the feelings of what others do is not the focus. The focus or the eye must stay single as it is written. If my focus is on Christ we can see things clearly and emotions do not offer a single focus they distort it. 

The moment self-preservation of life comes, the pride of life is right beside it for they are married to one another. They have been since the beginning. The single barrier that blocks God is the pride of life. Yet it is written;

For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

 ALSO if anyone loves the world the love of The Father is not in him.

I say this. Why lose your life over feelings? Why suffer judgment over emotions when they suffer from a fickle condition that spreads virally like Coronavirus has or the tragic murder of George Floyd in Minnesota. As you can see there are two types of individuals in these last days. The one that mocks and considers the virus a joke, even acting out of rage when others wish to protect themselves from it. The one that loots businesses and brings chaos and destruction across the land due to impulsive anger raging out of control because of injustice and constant police brutality against African Americans.   

Then you have those that wish to protect themselves and others from contracting a virus that has taken many lives. Risking their own lives to help and are treated without regard by those that have no care for anyone. And then you have those that are truly hurt and disturbed by the actions of four police officers that took a mans life and from this those that truly care present peaceful protest for change in this area of how this race of people are treated by a force that was created to protect and serve. 

See the issues are worldly. How we react to them determines if we are worldly also. Remember God said he will destroy the one that defiles his temple. And you are his temple. Becoming what may seem foolish is not reacting out of your emotions from the things of this world. It is wise and it is required for we are the temple of God and it is to be Holy. For he will catch the wise of this world in their own craftiness. 

No matter what happens in this world. Do not forget whose you are. Handle yourself like you know you are Gods and dont let this world defile you with its ways. For anger is seen as murder in the eyes of God. So you cannot seperate yourself from a murderer by expressing anger and rage towards him. 

Be in the peace of Christ brothers and sisters

Born and raised in Portsmouth Virginia. The youngest of 3 sons begin writing at age 29 after seeing his life become much of nothing through violations of license operations and mariquana, but also indulging in fornication and lies. Returning to his upbringing of faith in Christ it inspired not only his writing but his life. A faithful father and spiritually inclined thinker gave a different perspective of followers of Christ. Not only for those that are of the Christian faith but all for the belief that we are all his children "IF" we choose to be in belief in his son Jesus. IF we obey his words we display our love truly for him. This message is open to everyone that seeks it and if they do with all their heart they shall find it.
