GIVE WITHOUT STRIFE
11/01/04 DO NOT DEBATE WITH THOSE WHO ARGUE
had a discussion with a person who would not receive the
truth, but rather turned it back to me in an accusing
manner. I felt very bad and took this to the Lord asking
Him if I needed to change something.
HAND QUICKENED SCRIPTURES:
to myself, "I will watch what I do and not sin in what I
say. I will curb my tongue when the ungodly are around
me." 2 But as I stood there in silence - not even
speaking of good things - the turmoil within me grew to
the bursting point. 3 My thoughts grew hot within me and
began to burn, igniting a fire of words:
on, let's have some fun! Let's go hear the prophet tell
us what the LORD is saying!' 31 So they come pretending
to be sincere and sit before you listening. But they
have no intention of doing what I tell them. They
express love with their mouths, but their hearts
You are very entertaining to them, like someone who
sings love songs with a beautiful voice or plays fine
music on an instrument. They hear what you say, but they
don't do it!

God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may
know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their
senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been
taken captive by him to do his will.
The sad parts of intercession are more than just words.
The lives that they cover are real too. My dear, dear

learn the difference between the two is painful and
humbling, dear one. Have I not sent you many examples of
such? The teachable who are hungry for Me continue to
knock on My door, even when My Words are tough and
strong meat. Their hearts are pure and humble; asking
questions, wanting to understand. They respond to My
yearnings over them. Yes, they sometimes choke over what
I say to them, and yes, they kick against the pricks.
They are quick to apologize and humble themselves for
more. Again and again they come. Hungry for more of what
I have to say.
not so with the unteachable. They are drawn to My Words,
asking with itching ears for knowledge to validate their
vain pursuits. Do not listen to their compliments lest
you be torn by sharp teeth. Always seeking their own
way, they show outbursts of anger and defense should
issues resist their will. They manipulate to gain an
upper hand. If I feed them beautiful Words, they are
pacified and amused but without change.

time spreading My platter of pearls for those with sharp

ones, when I send you with My message, your only
assignment is to deliver the Word and then back off and
let Me do the convincing. It is not your job to play the
role of Holy Spirit. To step beyond the boundaries of
your assignment, is to fall into a downward spiral which
results in striving and debate. This does not represent
Me or My message. Such behavior represents the Pharisees
and wolves who are blind and lost in their own
mind-sets. They defend their opinions in frank and bold
speech. They point the finger silhouetting their own
wounds and know not the wisdom of their God.
serve My Word, it is as a humble and lowly servant. If
I, being Lord, am gentle and lowly of heart, how much
more should you? Listen to the word give. It means to
bestow, grant, offer, present, donate, furnish, impart.
When I give, it is served on a platter of choice. I do
not force Myself on the non-teachable. You will learn as
you come into synch with My purposes and with one
another, that to give through My Presence and through My
Spirit results in pure, sweet peace.
say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments
that only start fights. The Lord's servants must not
quarrel but must be kind to everyone. They must be able
to teach effectively and be patient with difficult
people. They should gently teach those who oppose the
truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts,
and they will believe the truth. Then they will come to
their senses and escape from the Devil's trap. For they
have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.
