Why Do We Waste Good Tears On “So-Called” Friends??? Don’t You Know…A Devil Can Never Be A Friend To A Child Of God!

 

You win a few; you lose a few; but you keep on fighting. And if you need a friend, get a dog. It’s trench warfare out there, pal.”

OH, MY GOODNESS!  If I hear another story of heart-break & heart-ache…caused by some “so-called” friend, I’m going to “SCREAM!!!”  Are we so DESPERATE to have “friends”…that we look for them…even amongst the devils???  And, then…we are TRULY surprised when they throw shit in our faces.  And, then…we are TRULY surprised when our main accessory…is the “steel knife” gleaming in our back.

TRUE STORY:

A friend of mine was invited to an outing by someone whom she thought was a “friend.”   I will call my friend “Jackie” and her presupposed friend… “Pam.”  Well, it was during the summer time so Jackie wore a cute little outfit.  She arrived, took a seat & within minutes…all hell broke loose.  Jackie told me that she was verbally attacked by the host & a relative of the host…almost immediately.

Something was said to her like… “Bitch, you think your cute in that little outfit, don’t you?”   I responded with… “What??? Were they kidding???”  Jackie said… “No.”   Then, I asked… “Well, what DID you say when she said this to you?”  She said… “I just laughed.”  By this time…I was shaking my head.  I said… “Jackie, who the hell invites somebody to an outing & within minutes of them getting there…gangs up on em’, without just cause?”  I think the invite was nothing more than… a “set-up.” You see…  Pam used this as a way to try and humiliate Jackie.  And, since the *&^%$ didn’t have the courage to do it by herself, she had a relative chime in …for good measure.   Now…

It baffled me as to how my friend, Jackie, allowed herself to be caught up in the web…of this evil ass spider.  Jackie confirmed that Pam had said hateful & mean things to her…on several other occasions, before & after the outing.  So, my question is this…  Why would you befriend a devil who is clearly waving a banner…in your face…that SCREAMS… “I HATE YOU!  I HATE YOU!???”  O.k.  Let’s keep going.

My daddy use to say something to the effect of … “If you can find one true friend in this lifetime…that’s plenty.”   As a little girl, hearing this…I thought… “Well, I got a lot…soooo, that must be real good.”  Now, as I’ve watched many sunsets…I’ve gotten a clearer understanding of where my daddy was REALLY coming from.   What he was really saying, was this…  “FRIENDS…are R-E-A-L-L-Y hard to come by.”  Yes…  And, whether big or small…people have a tendency to MISUSE the term “friend” …OVER & OVER & OVER.   For the most part, many who are called friends, aren’t really friends at all.  These folks are “associates” …some closer, than others.  But, not a… “friend.”

First, we are f-a-a-a-a-a-r to open with our emotions.  Just because you feel something or think something…doesn’t mean you have to let everyone…know.  Believe it or not, but…everyone who smiles in your face IS NOT your friend.     Stop being so gullible.  Stop wearing your heart on your sleeve.  Why???  Because, all a devil will do…is STOMP on it.  And, sad enough…a majority of the people you deal with…are either little devils…OR…big devils.  And, it doesn’t make any difference if these people are related to you by blood or not.  Let me put it like this.  The fact that someone has the same bloodline running through their veins as you…DOES NOT…mean they are “good folk.”  Shit…   Even “Adolf Hitler” had relatives.  COME ON!!!  Every devil that’s walking is related to somebody.  O.k…

If you ask me, what type of human being should you look for as a “friend” …I undoubtedly would have to say this…  It would have to be someone who…in their “spirit” … shows the likeness of… “Christ.”   Meaning???  Meaning…that through “discernment” I see “light”…& not “darkness.”  Meaning…that through “discernment” …I see “earthiness”…& not ”haughtiness.”  Meaning…that through “discernment” …I see a “loving” heart…& not a “hateful” one.  Meaning…through “discernment” …I see “courage” …& not a “coward.”  O.k…

Patience is VERY important when you are “peeping out” anyone.  Time truly does reveal all.   Meaning???  Meaning…if you watch someone…over time…their “true” character will reveal itself.  So, if your dealing with a devil…soon enough they will pull their ass.  And, if you are dealing with a godly spirit…soon enough their “light” will envelop you.  God cannot lie and He puts it like this… “ 17 For nothing is hidden that will not be disclosed, nor is anything secret that will not become known and come to light.”  (Luke 8: 18) So…  Don’t be so quick to bring people into your private life.    Let some time pass and watch how these people walk.  Look to see how they act…in different surroundings…with different people.  Are you seeing a Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde???  Are you seeing someone who stands up for the truth even if no one else is???  Are you seeing someone who compromises their espoused “morals”…to please others???  Are you seeing a sneaky mouse…who is telling one person one thing…& another…something else???  You get the point.

Now…  Jesus tells us… “17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew  7:17-20)  Meaning???                  Meaning…if you are dealing with an evil person…they WILL yield bad things.   Their behavior will produce negative…ungodly results.   They will lie, cheat & steal (yes, even your husband or wife).  O.k…  I am frequently invited to certain events to check out certain people.   The person invites me because they want to know what God is telling me about a certain being.  And, you know what???   It amazes me just how BLIND even God’s children can be…when it comes to perceiving devilish spirits.

Now, let’s call the person who invited me “Jane.”  And, let’s call the person I was suppose to check out… “Samantha.”  On this particular occasion, when I was introduced to “Samantha” …what “screamed out” to me was “TRAITOR!” … “TRAITOR!”   And, guess what???  Within about an hour, it fleshed itself out.  “Samantha” ended up blatantly  flirting with “Jane’s” boyfriend…right in front of Jane.   The kicker is that Samantha & Jane had been “so-called” best friends for at least 4 or 5 years…by that time.   God knows…  I wanted to shake the hell-out-of “Jane”…for being so blind.  All I was thinking was… “Why in Satan’s hell do you call this devil your friend??? Your “best” friend???  Why can’t you see into the truth of this girl???”  O.k…

One reason that God’s children don’t see “the light” (the truth)…about devilish spirits is because their level of “discernment” is way too low.   They mainly look for the outward signs when, God expects us to look inward…as well.   “Discernment” is a gift from the Holy Spirit.   The Bible tells us… “12 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could not speak. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says “Let Jesus be cursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy SpiritNow there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses.” (1 Corinthians 12:1-11) O.k…

The gift of “discernment” gives you the ability to assess a person…a situation…an environment…in terms of whether they/it is coming from a place of God…OR…a place of the Devil.   This gift is a spiritual weapon from God to protect us from the evil that WILL confront us…daily.   It also lets us know when we are blessed with the presence of a kindred…godly being.   In other words,  “discernment” let’s us know what we are “working with.”   Now…  Even, as a young child, I had a heightened level of “discernment.”  Growing up, I heard folk…call this “reading” people.   At the time, I thought everybody could see & sense what I was seeing and sensing.  But, not so.  Not at all.  Anyway…

As I got older & formed a closer relationship with the Heavenly Father…my level of “discernment” …seemed to just catapult.  Now, you can literally sit person…after person…in front of me & it’s just like I’ve known them…forever.  What’s happening is this…  My closer relationship with God, has increased His power within me.  And, because He knows everything (omniscient), He gives me His knowledge about someone…or something.   How cool is that???  And…

The beauty is this…  If you grow closer in relationship with God…your level of discernment can also grow.  God wants His children to use every spiritual gift He can give us…to help us on this earthly realm.   He does not want us to be tricked into befriending devils.  He knows that a devilish spirit DOES NOT mean any good…for His children.   He does not want us to be…betrayed, heart-broken & hurt…by “so-called” friends.  He wants the people who are around us…to be godly beings…who respect & love us.

And, remember what I told you my daddy said…
If you can find one true friend in this lifetime…that’s plenty.”

May God Be With You…Beloved.
