Judgment Will No Longer Be Delayed!!!
Yesterday I went to a Firestone near me to have my tires rotated. I had been going there for some years now and they had been thorough until now.
As I set in the lobby after giving my keys to the supervisor (who we will call Bob), I noticed that the bays were full, and several vehicles were sitting out on the property. Either waiting to be serviced or picked up.
I want you to recognize how wicked and vile people can be. So set in their foolishness. They assume that you are as stupid as they are.
The mechanic (who we will call Ken) came to get my keys and started to speak in hushed tones to Bob. As he answered him, my curiosity got the best of me. I asked Bob what Ken said.
A Liar Shall Not Tarry in My Sight
Ken stated that my tires did not look as if they needed to be rotated. Bob informed me that he told Ken to rotate them anyway so as not to void my warranty. I agreed as I told Bob that I had to purchase a new set of tires prematurely for that very reason. As a travel nurse, I drive a lot.
Ken proceeded to take my car and he never pulled it into the bay. In all the times that my vehicle had been serviced there I have always seen them pull it into the bay and use the car lift.
About 20 minutes later, Ken came driving into the lot. Parked my car where I parked it originally and gave the keys to Bob. Bob then gave the keys to me abruptly and told me that I was all set.
When The Spirit Puts You at Unease
I sat in my car for a few minutes unable to fathom that they believed that I was so ignorant that I would not know that they didn’t rotate my tires. I then went to meet my daughter who had an interview. When I arrived, I called the corporate office to file a complaint.
This was egregious on so many levels. An individual can be harmed or fatally injured in an accident when his or her tires are damaged. Not only that but I live in Michigan. We get a lot of snow and ice even in late spring.
They knowingly and callously put my family and me in danger. Not to mention other drivers and pedestrians that are on the road should I lose control of my vehicle.
I went further and wrote a Google review and almost immediately Bob called me back to dispute my allegations. Asking me how he could make it right. Pleading with me to bring my car back in so that he could prove to me that I was mistaken.
When Someone Shows You Who They Are…
No. I listened. But I am a firm believer, once you show me who you are. If you are a base individual, I will never trust you again.
Honestly, I was hurt by their blatant disregard for my safety. Now, this is where the lesson comes in. I was so livid that the incident continued to ruminate in my head.
But the Spirit started to point out several things to me. 1) Stop taking things so personally. We are in spiritual warfare.
You see, as I wrote in my review, and firmly believe. If you would do this to me, you have or intend to do this to others.
2) God will use His chosen as vessels to mete out His judgment. The Spirit was letting me know that their wickedness goes beyond this situation. The stench of their evils reached heaven, and God is bringing them into judgment. While showing mercy by giving them the chance to correct their behavior.
3) This is to warn them that Jesus sees what is done in the dark. Confirming that when God allows things to happen. It is up to us to be obedient in how He leads us to handle the matter.
Why it is Not Good to Ignore Maltreatment
Many have come to me about circumstances that have affected their lives. I would advise them on how to handle the situation. 90-95% will not follow through. Excusing those who perpetrated the offense. Choosing to walk away.
Can I tell you something? This is why sin is rampant. Destroying earth and man. Why do you think that God took such a harsh stance as He gave the laws and punishments to the children of Israel through Moses?
Let me confirm for you. It is written, “Any Israelite or any stranger residing in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech (the god of the Ammonites) [as a human sacrifice] shall most certainly be put to death; the people of the land shall stone him with stones” (Leviticus 20: 2, AMP).
“If any man lies [intimately] with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed a detestable (perverse, unnatural) act; they shall most certainly be put to death; their blood is on them” (Leviticus 20: 13, AMP)
God Created Statutes and Ordinances for A Purpose
Whether oppression, fraud, murder, bestiality, incest, cursing mother and/or father, disrespecting our elders, the abuse of infants and children, witchcraft, adultery, fornication, rape, and many more abominations. God required justice, up to and including death.
The Earth as created by God, was not meant to absorb these detestable horrors and that is why the land is imploding.
It is written, “Therefore keep all My statutes and all My ordinances and do them, so that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out [as it did those before you]” (Leviticus 20: 22, AMP).
4)Now pay attention to this one. Sometimes God will want you to confront a situation immediately. But many times, I find that He wants you to remain focused on Him. Trusting that when the time comes, He will instruct you on how to move accordingly.
The confirmation of why God wants us to wait. “Then in the fourth generation your descendants shall return here [to Canaan, the land of promise], for the wickedness and guilt (or iniquity) of the Amorites is not yet complete (finished)” (Genesis 15: 16, AMP).
Unapologetic and Defiant
You see God knows that some people are willingly unrepentant. He will allow them to condemn themselves. So that they have no excuse.
It is written, “Behold, the [wicked and irreverent] man is pregnant with sin, and he conceives mischief and gives birth to lies. He has dug a pit and hollowed it out, and has fallen into the [very] pit which he made [as a trap]. His mischief will return on his own head, and his violence will come down on the top of his head [like loose dirt]” (Psalm 7: 14-16, AMP).
Trust in the LORD
This takes faith and patience. A knowing that vengeance is His and He WILL repay. While deterring us from recrimination, mental instability, and uncontrollable rage. Even for those like me. Who has OCD. Many times, I am unable to concentrate and become stagnant. Even more dangerous, distracted. Refusing to wait on the LORD God who forgets nothing.
He knows every person and every situation that comes against us. So, I want you to remember this. “You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not recorded in Your book?” (Psalm 56: 8, AMP).
So, remain steadfast. Honor the LORD in all His omniscience and omnipotence.
Always coming from a place of love!!!
