Do You Want To Be Free Of Fear Of The Authority? Keep Doing Good

Gang

If you live in a glass house, there is a strict rule to follow. Don’t throw stones. Many don’t respect the authority, they disobey their parents, ignore their teachers and live reckless lives. Affected by problems at home, including divorce, alcoholism and drug abuse, they grow to be criminals, finding it hard to obey rules and respect the authority. At the end, they find themselves in the net of the law.

Surprisingly, people you may not suspect to be deceptive and cunning, also go against the law. Many celebrities and rich people don’t give respect to authorities, as law-abiding citizens. They evade tax. Every crime deserves punishment, yet those who commit crime, try to find ways and means to erase everything possibly to link them up to that crime to avoid prison sentence.

If investigation leads  criminals to prison, many refuse to obey the authorities, or have a changed character to demand early release, instead they plan prison escape. They don’t want to serve time in prison, yet they commit crime. Drug offense in many countries in Asia carries death penalty, yet people try to smuggle drugs to Asia.  Do we have to shed tears for people that get involved in such acts, when they have conscience to know good and evil?

One of the powerful ways to cultivate humility, humbleness, submissiveness and to get rid of pride, is to remain in God’s love. The devil has work for idle hands, so keep yourself busy by alienating from things that may put you into trouble. There is nothing that gives satisfaction and happiness to man, than to give Caesar what belongs to him (paying your tax) and give to God what belongs to God (To follow His teachings) to resist the temptations of the world.

What Will You Do When A Married Woman Is Interested In You?

“How would you judge it, when a married woman wants to sleep with you,  a blessing, evil or temptation?”

About fourteen years ago, I made an advert in a local newspaper in Antwerp, Belgium, looking for a job as a cleaner because cleaning is one of the easiest jobs to get if one wants to be financially independent as quickly as possible. (Later the Belgian government noticed it and blocked the illegal work by introducing cleaning payment cheques through work agencies) I had a good response and started working for four married women.

When a man is around a woman, one needs to be conscious, because some women are very attractive and tempting. The beautiful dress they wear and the expensive perfumes they use, add glamour to their beauty, which could sweep a man off his feet if you are not the type hard to fight temptation. There is no way a fowl can pass maize without swallowing it. I don’t blame Bill Clinton, Jeffery Archer, Mike Tyson, Tiger Woods and many others for their inability to resist the taste of the juicy fruit. All came crashing down because of a woman.

One of the women I was working for, husband works outside Antwerp. Being a housewife, she thought she could cheat on her husband with me. It may be that I am completely wrong, she hadn’t those intentions. Probably she was just trying to see if I would yield to her demands to determine if I am a dangerous man in her house, in order to kick me out immediately. In the first week, I started cleaning her house, there isn’t a single day passing by without her touching my buttocks. She comes very close behind me touches my butt and leaves.

Saskia (not her real name) was a very beautiful and attractive lady. It’s hard to resist the temptation of giving her what she wants. I stood firm not to enter into her tempting ‘Golden box,’ yet I was scared to death to tell her to stop touching my buttocks. Besides, her husband was very friendly to me, there is no way I’m going to do this. It’s completely wrong to sleep with another man’s wife. I would not be happy if someone does that to me. After the continuation of ‘buttocks touching’ for two weeks without response, she stopped.

I gave a big sigh of relief, unknowing she has other plans. On the first floor of the building was a library. Usually, I take all the books and dust the shelves in the cleaning process. She knows that I clean the bookshelves every week, so she printed a colored photograph of a man inserting his manhood into a lady’s ‘golden box’ and hid it at a place where I can easily reach when cleaning the books. More than dozen times, I took the picture and watched, asking myself, Lord what a temptation? I refused to sleep with her.

The third temptation happened on a very sad day, September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center. While I glued myself to the corner of the sitting hall listening to the shocking news, she invited me to join her on the sofa and I declined. “You are a married woman who wore a ring,” I told her. From that day I gained my freedom. We became good friends and she liked me more like a brother.

She gave me a key to her house to clean weekly without disturbing her if she is in bed. But one day something went terribly wrong. Saskia forgets that she has given me a key to her house. She wakes one morning and finds a dark figure in her kitchen. I have no words to explain what followed. She screamed calling God to come to her rescue. This is a woman who doesn’t even believe in God. I was sad and upset. I gave back her key that very day.

I worked for her for five years and quit because I got a full-time work and it became difficult to handle both. She was highly disappointed when I decided to leave. I want her to be happy, so I went to her place with a friend to work for her. She rejected him outright. I took another friend and she also opposed him. I gave up but she didn’t take it kindly. She sent me a disappointing mail of neglecting her, calling me a bad person, after all, that she has done for me. I apologized and everything became normal.

Pray Without Ceasing

Pray

We often read ‘Pray without ceasing,’ but how serious do we consider this statement? Imagine if a car, after running thousands of kilometers, needs servicing, lubrication and changing of engine oil etc; to run efficiently, what is the spiritual strength of a human being, who eats and sleeps daily without prayers, to boost his spiritual life against temptation, sins of the flesh and bad spiritual forces?

Scholars, atheists, scientists and non-believers continue to tamper with the doctrines of the gospel, twisting and changing facts, just to put people astray and ruin the society as witnessing today. But don’t be surprised because the prophesy in the Bible over such events must be fulfilled. Everyone is after money, fame and material things, because the mind is polluted to believe that money is the only thing that can give mankind satisfaction.

Money is good, but can’t buy one peace and happiness. In fact, the love for money has generated crime and brought immoralities on the internet and television, through bad advertisements. What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? The scripture says ‘Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.’- Luke 21:33. Then again: ‘Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.’- Matthew 6: 33.

Like the changing of clothes daily, prayer should be part of our lives. How inefficient a farmer could be without farm equipment? If prayer isn’t necessary to keep us strong in times of sadness or temptation, Jesus wouldn’t have said to the tempter “It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4.

Jesus said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. If everything fail try Jah’s love and see the result. Don’t turn to God only when you have difficulties or want something. Let that faith you have in Him inspire you to read the Bible and pray without ceasing. You will definitely see your progress, prosperity and success pouring like a ripe fruit falling and spreading under the tree.
