So many ways. Do you know something interesting? Did you know that angels love you?
You say, well, what do you mean? How do you know they love me? Well, if we can take Daniel and broaden it. And if we can assume that angels love what God loves, then angels love us. And what does that say but that their service to us is not unwilling but loving. They minister to believers whom they love. You say, well, how do they minister to Christians. They just kind of look at us, and that must be interesting. They keep watch over us. I don't suppose we ever get out of the watchful eye of angels.
For we are made a spectacle to the world and to angels and to men. They watch the apostles. You say, well, how do you know they watch the whole church? How do you know they watch all Christians? They look down and they say, look what God did in that life. God is wise. How wise He must be. And they turn and praise Him. The angels watch the apostles, they watch the church. You know what else they watch?
They especially watch the women. Did you know that? You say, in what way? The angels are watching. Well get into this chapter in a few weeks. Anyway, he says here that women are to be in subjection. Basically the idea is women are to be in subjection to their husband, because the angels are watching for that. You say, well, if the angels are watching, what are they looking for? Well, the Lord may give them a message to bring to you.
What form will it take? I don't know, only you could tell. You know something, if you feel bad ladies, you know who else they watch, very specifically, they watch the preacher. They watch me. So the elect angels are checking me out. Well, probably come down with a message for me too.
Now in response to what they see, they act in our behalf. In response to what they are aware of, they act. You say, what do they do? Well, and I think this is important, first of all they reveal truth.
Did you know that most of the book of Daniel and most of the book of Revelation was delivered by angels. Now the angels revealed the word to us. Let me hasten to add something, lest you be confused. The only thing we know that angels ever delivered is here. The angels only delivered this Word. God gave us feelings and emotions, each and every one. All play an important part on our human self.
We are given these feelings and emotions to use. To learn and develop, while following our Path of Life.
Man chose to set down rules. Religion and traditions followed them through. Man tries to suppress some feelings and emotions because of these rules. Many perceive these feelings and emotions as being negative, but did God intend these feelings and emotions to be only negative? Because of the conditioning of Man, some feelings and emotions are regarded as negative and should not be allowed to be used, and therefore to be denied and suppressed! You are allowed to feel, you are allowed to have emotions. You are allowed to react to these feelings and emotions in anyway that feels right to you, at the time these feelings and emotions come to you.
In the eyes of God, there are no negative feelings and emotions. Your responsibility is to use them wisely!
The dictionary definitions:. Egotism - is when one accuses someone, criticizing them for behaving selfishly and believing themselves to be more important than other people. To describe someone having an ego is to say that they think they are very important and valuable. Jealousy - is the feeling of anger or bitterness, which someone has when they wish that they could have the qualities or possessions that another person has. Anger - is the strong emotion that one feels when one thinks that someone has behaved in an unfair, cruel, or unacceptable way.
Bitterness - is someone continuing to feel angry about a disappointing experience or after being treated unfairly. Judgmental - is the process of forming an opinion or evaluation by discerning and comparing. Pride - is self-esteem; a reasonable and justifiable self-respect; a delight or elation rising from some act, possession or relationship. Self-esteem - is a confidence and satisfaction in oneself. These are all feelings and emotions which we all have had at some time. Feelings and emotions which we have been conditioned to believing as being negative, and therefore we should deny them.
These feelings and emotions are triggered off when we are in a state of feeling below par; when we are working something out within ourselves and something comes to us from outside, which we are unable to cope with. These feelings and emotions are then triggered off within ourselves, to create the negative assumption. It is said that egotism is a person trying to prove they are somebody. We do need to have a little ego , for our own self-esteem. Once we have self-esteem , we are able to then control the ego.
Is Ego therefore, good or bad? It is a positive emotion if this helps us to have pride , confidence and satisfaction in something we are doing. If the ego is balanced with these feelings and emotions, then it is good. Ego can be mistaken for one having self-confidence.
Seeing someone having self-confidence can create the feelings and emotions of jealousy , anger and bitterness in their negative form, because we feel inadequate in not being able to have the qualities like that person. Ego can be mistaken for energy flowing. When someone sees the need to bring the energy to a higher vibration, that person will call upon their ego to help. This is often perceived as that person having excessive eg o, when in fact, it is energy flowing to bring the vibrations higher.
When discussing something about someone, this can be seen by another as being judgmental. The one person is in the process of forming an opinion or evaluation by discerning and comparing, while the other perceives it in the negative form. It is human nature to talk about someone else, but it is how this is done, either as an observation or concern, on whether it is negative and degrading. Feelings and emotions are there to be used in our day-to-day situations. It is our responsibility to deal with them the best way we can. If another has a problem with how we are dealing with our own feelings and emotions, then that is their problem, not ours.
We are all individuals, responsible to ourselves and to our soul when we return from whence we came. It is, therefore, not what happens to us, but how we deal with it, that is important in the eyes of God. How you all perceive the foregoing, you have the right to feel.
