Rebuke the Oppressor by Benjamin Nolot

Valuable thoughts to ponder on...

"Let us not be silent when we see oppression, injustice, abuse, corruption around us. Time to rise up, speak out and intercede against corruption, oppression and abuse."

  "Rebuke the oppressor and his works of the oppressor in Jesus Name and stand with the oppressed one."~ Benjamin Nolot 
"Allegiance to Jesus will only bring Justice on earth."~Benjamin Nolot 
"Let us fight for Precious souls falling prey to molestors, oppressors."~ Benjamin Nolot 
To pursue justice do not tolerate oppressors, molesters but stop them.~ Benjamin Nolot 
"If we are silent and do not expose a one time perpetrator he becomes a serial perpetrator." ~Benjamin Nolot 
(From his message "Rebuke the Oppressor")

Have you been misunderstood?

Have you been misunderstood? 
Read the following written by: M.S.Lowndes 
Be blessed,
Good Night...
Read Matthew 26: 59-68 
If anyone knows what it's like to be misunderstood, Jesus does. As we read here, these witnesses that came forth testified that Jesus said He could tear down the temple and build it up again in three days. Yes, Jesus did say that (in John 2:18-22), but He was referring to His own death and resurrection. The others misunderstood what He meant. They thought He was referring to the temple building where they worshiped. Many misunderstood who He was, and why He came.
So often in life, we too are misunderstood. It can be really frustrating, and even damage relationships if the misunderstanding gets passed around. I have found that when someone hears even just one negative thing about a person, it taints his or her entire view of that person, and often it is over a misunderstanding. I have also found that once a person’s view of someone else is tainted, everything they hear about the person (as in gossip), just adds to the all-round view they have of them.
Yet, what about truth? 
Where does truth come into this? 
We need to exercise discernment and sort out the 'lies’ from the ‘truth’, the misunderstanding from the ‘facts’.
★ If you are one that has been misunderstood, then take heart . Jesus understands how you feel. 
Pray that the truth will be made known, and the explanation (either by you or someone else), will shed some light . You don't have to feel alone in this. God knows the truth and He knows your heart. Leave it with Him!
A truthful witness saves lives , but a deceitful witness speaks lies [and e
ndangers lives ].
~ Proverbs 14:25~
When we have been misunderstood
Lord help us to convey
The truth so they will understand
What we have tried to say
By M.S.Lowndes

May we be slow to judge and quick to pray!

It is sad how easily we form our opinion of people from what we hear from others before even trying to get to know that person and knowing what the truth really is. (I have done it :( some times too!)
What we hear may not always be correct because they just may be repeating what they heard or felt... 
For our eyes and ears may deceive us.
 It's Proverbs 25:7b & 8a"....what you've seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court....."
 Proverbs 25:9b " not betray another man's confidence..."
Even if it is true we need to pray for that person and see how we can help that person before we judge and gossip!

Lord help us to be people who are slow to judge and quick to pray and always ready to help lift the fallen and steady a faltering step!
In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
