BLOG 115 DANGER-PRIDE

THINK ABOUT THIS:

Pride prevents one from hearing Yahweh God’s voice. Jesus is God’s voice; He is the Word of Yahweh God. John 1:1 He is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. John 14:6 Pride will keep one from obeying Jesus, “who is the TRUTH.”  Pride caused Satan to fall, so his number one deception is pride. Isaiah 12:12-16 If the devil can deceive the whole world, he can surely fool us. Because of pride, a person can think that they are hearing Yah’s voice, but it is, in fact, the devil’s voice they are listening to. Pride enables Satan to get ahold on a person’s mind. He is very cunning and sly, and can imitate Yah’s voice to make a person think that it is God. 2Corinthians 11:14 Pride is very hard to discern; its sneaky! No matter how old we get, or how long we have been a Christian, there are those who may know more, have studied longer, and who Yah is using to bring the truth and His will in the earth. It does not matter how much we think we know. It may be wise to relearn some very important facts in the Bible. We are to just humble ourselves and listen. “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6 When Yah shows us something we did not know, we are blessed. We are not to make a judgement before a matter is studied out. Proverbs 18:13 We will save ourselves a lot of trouble and heartache. The Bible says “Pride comes before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18 Sometimes, it’s thought that one knows best because of their own learning, and understanding when Yah is trying to reveal the truth. It’s all about “letting Yahweh be God,” and not putting Him in any particular box. A person is unaware that they are in pride because it blinds them to the truth. This is a very dangerous place to be. The answer is humility-humbling oneself. Yah will exalt them at the proper time when they humble themselves first. 1Peter 5:6

Pride is very dangerous! Think about the position that Satan, then Lucifer, had with Yahweh God, and because of his pride, he tried to lift himself above God. That’s what pride does. Lucifer had a high position with God, above the other angelic host. He was very beautiful with amazing precious stones on his chest, and timbrels to play music. Yah blessed him with talent and leadership. A person is lifting their self up above God: Their knowledge, their own learning, their proof of the happenings of miracles, healings, etc. That’s why it’s so dangerous. When a person refuses to listen to anyone-that’s very bad. Yahweh God is a Spirit-He talks through His people. He does not talk to the mind. Holy Spirit speaks to our spirit and brings truth from Yah to our minds. We must humble ourselves and listen, and be aware that we have an enemy who is trying to destroy us. Because of his beauty, knowledge, and talents, Lucifer THOUGHT that he could overthrow Yahweh God and take over His kingdom. We know what happened to him-he became Satan, and was thrown out of heaven. Knowledge puffs up–makes proud! 1Corinthians 8:1  With pride, one is lifting himself up above Yahweh God because of his own accomplishments. They imagine that they are doing God’s will. This causes them not to listen, beliving that others are attempting to stop them and to manipulate them to their way of thinking. But the truth is that Yah is desiring for that person to be set free from the lies of Satan. The scripture says that love is wise and pride is deceitful.  1 Corinthians 8:1

Knowing that this could affect anyone, we should always come against the spirit of pride.

This is faith cabin saying bye for now. Love, blessings, and smiles. 😊
