haughty

What are your goals?


What are the goals that you seek to accomplish in this time you have upon this earth?
Become rich?
Become famous?
Well look at these goals from a Biblical point of view.
So you desire to be rich.
Biblically the more you desire riches the harder it is to get into to heaven. So on a scale of “one” being poor biblically and “ten” being rich biblically, becoming rich is a “one.”
Matthew 19:23 – Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”
Now if all you sought was that which allows you to get your daily bread. That is a “ten.” In fact it is part of the Lord’s Prayer.
Okay seeking fame. Most that become famous become haughty. That then again becomes a “one.”
Proverbs 16: 18 Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.
God desires us to be humble. That is a “ten.”
1 Peter 5:5 – In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 6 So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
So a low score gets you into the pit of fire. A high score heads you in the right direction.
So for becoming rich and famous the score is “two.”
So being content with your daily bread and humbling yourself that is a score of “twenty.”
Personally I do not want rewards of this temporal plain of existence. For they will be eaten by moths and rust away. I seek after the eternal rewards that will be with me for billions upon billions upon billions of years.
Matthew 6:19 – “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. 22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! 24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money. 25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

“You are STUPID for believing in God!!”


The belief that one is greater than another human being is the core problem that cause events like the holocaust and war to take place. From this core point of superiority comes all that can be considered evil. And a system of this delusion is the belief, by those that think themselves superior are “smarter” than anyone else.
One of the core elements of those that truly learn the Bible and understand the teaching of Jesus Christ is that all humanity is equal but when you are Christian you are to place all others before yourself. It teaches in no uncertain terms that to be haughty is a sin.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Proverbs 18:12 – Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
Haughty (16:18) – gobahh – height, excellency, haughty, high, loftiness, pride
Haughty (18:12) – gabahh – exalt, be haughty, be make higher, lift up, mount up, be proud, raise up great height, upward
Romans 12:14 – Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
I really do wish these people were not so blinded in their own religions that they could not see that they loss encounters with Christians the moment they start to be of a haughty mentality. For it was not we Christians they are passing judgment upon. Yes I say judgment. They accuse us of being close-minded yet they themselves are close-minded. This is the core of the verse that people have misquoted and misconstrued when they say “ye shall not judge.”
Matthew 7:1 “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. 2 For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. 6 “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.”
They do not see that it is they that are passing judgement upon themselves for they are the ones living in their sense of high-mindedness and self-glorification. For this is the real meaning of these verse. Christ also instructs us not to preach unto those that live and think this way, for we would “waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.”
I never diminished anyone’s intelligence I merely pointed out that they many have not truly studied what they are parroting. Yes I say “parroting.” You can tell they have never truly read the Word of God. This can be obvious to any that truly knows the Bible. You can tell it is “parroting,” because if they really knew the Bible. They would see that just because it is the understanding that this entire universe exists due to God. It does not lessen their existence or their being as they have been told it must do by those that have rejected the truth. They have listened to those that preach a different message. A lie that certain members of the human race are better than others, because they listen to the religions of science, the religion of humanism, the religion of evolution. A false narrative that leads all the way back to Satan the father of all lies. The one being that thinks all of creation is less than himself and wishes all, especially humanity to suffer as he himself will suffer in the end.

Pride: the killer of a nation


Why do I say this? I have listened and I have read the reasons people are saying why they will not vote for the person with the best change to defeat the criminal Hilary Clinton. When you boil it down and get to the root of the issue. All I hear is “pride.”
The dictionary defines “pride” as this for this particular occasion:
“The belief that you are better or more important than other people.”
But let’s not stop there let’s look at it in the Hebrew and then the Greek as well:
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
ga’own: arrogancy – arrogance – proud in an unpleasant way and behaving as if you are better or more important than other people
Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
geah: pride – arrogance
1 Timothy 3:4 – One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Tuphoo – I puff up, make haughty; pass: I am puffed up, am haughty
Haughty – unfriendly and seeming to consider yourself better than other people.
At the core of all the talk this is what I hear.
“I cannot lower myself to cast this vote.”
“I will be tarnishing my faith if I do this. I am better than this.”
Here is what the Bible states that I feel is important:
Galatians 6:1 – Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. 2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. 4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. 5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct. 6 Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them.
Philippians 2:1- Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2 Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. 3 Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
Should we not be thinking of other?
Should we not being thinking of that unborn child yet to be conceived that will be killed before it can even breathe it first breath of air?
Should we not be considering those that are poor and suffering because of open boarders which is allowing those that will work illegally for less than the minimum wage to steal jobs from your fellow citizens of this nation?
Will we allow those that would steal your security from you so that they may make you cower in fear since the lawless will become more emboldened?
If the answer to these questions is “yes, yes, yes and no.” Then we should humble ourselves and swallow our pride and push the button for that person that is most likely not to cause those very thinks I just mentioned form taking place. These very things which are guaranteed under Hilary Clinton.
Romans 12:1 – And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. 3 Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.
