SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING:


Proverbs 14:31

Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors Yahusha.

Proverbs 18:3

When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes reproach.

Psalms 31:18

Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

Matthew 5:43-44

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

1 John 4:20

If someone says, "I love Yahusha," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love Yahusha whom he has not seen?

Psalm 123:4

Our being is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

1 Timothy 4:12

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.


SUMMARY

Have you felt despised? Or do people speak with contempt to you? Do you know that this contempt/despise is not for you it is for Yahusha who is in you. Those giving you this are exceedingly jealous that you can show love, compassion, understanding, joy, patience etc and they cannot. They will do anything in their power to tear you down and show you that you are not good enough. However, Proverbs 14:31 says that Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their maker, But whoever is kind to the needy honours Yahusha. Those who despise us are needy, therefore we must be kind back as we want to honour/esteem Yahusha. Is this not what Yahusha did while he walked the earth. Forgive them they know not what they do. Were these not the words he spoke on the torture stake? We too must forgive them for they are being used by demons to cast doubt and make us like them.


By reading the above scriptures with the Hebrew understandings we get a fuller picture of what Yahusha wants us to do. He said they will hate you but know they hated me first. This hatred (contempt/despise) comes through everyone including those that love you and it hurts. You cannot say anything back to them for the way they have or are treating you as they will blame you without facing what they are doing. In this we have 3 rules which help us to avoid letting the hurt and pain and demonic activity into our ear gates and heart that comes to us.

Demons are against these 3 rules:

1. Am I taking it personal

(DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONAL)

2. Am I letting them have it

3. Am I making excuses


The hurt that you feel is taking what they have said personal and this is our first mistake. Do you find that you want to say something back every time they come at you that is not letting them have it. Are you trying to justify what just come out of you by saying it was because they said this so I said that, well brothers and sisters that is making excuses for your behaviour. Did you know that excuses are lies and Yahusha wants us clean and pure so that we can filter through into the wilderness.


Brothers and sisters as you can see this is a very real situation and experience and if you just listen to Yahusha and follow the 3 rules you will find peace. Demons want to destroy all of us that know and believe that Yahusha is Alahim. Satan wants us dead because we have access to Yahusha every second of the day. Are you going to despise people are will they despise you? The choice is yours to make.
