Maybe a Slightly Different Stroke :: By Don Twobears

Today’s article is going to be somewhat different than my usual, simply because of what people are saying, whether that be in words or in Emails. First let me say, I am not swayed by gossip, nor am I swayed by Emails that continually speak against anything I write. The majority of people in this world choose to be ignorant of the Word of God and then are brutal in their Respective Words or Emails to me. They continue to ask me, “Who says that what I am expounding is worthy…wherever it is read or spoken?”

It is true that I do receive on occasion a really good Email where an individual has been helped. And I am ecstatic to read and respond to them! However, there are areas where what I say or write is so deeply examined to the point of dissection. If one makes an error or does not present the Subject matter to their liking…then it is all totally wrong! Then the “Hate Mail” comes. Sadly the “Hate Mail” has become the greater of the two. I do indeed have a thick skin; yet, there comes a time when one thinks, enough is enough.

I Love to write for the Lord, and I do so as best as I know how. Everyone has an opinion, and they Love to infer theirs to everyone. I choose to pick the topics that most do not like to read about…Sin. It is sad to see anyone choose to be angry when these things are written about. I believe that they would rather hear about how wonderful and good they are; yet we know the Word of God says otherwise…because of our Sin.

Proverbs 1:2-7 “To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

“A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Am I afraid of “Hate Mail?” No…actually I have no fear what-so-ever; that is one thing the Lord took from me after the War. Fear is a waste of time! It keeps many from the things that they need to know and do. Does this mean that I am going to stop writing? At the moment, I am not too sure; I am going to leave it to the Lord to decide. I have written 100’s of Articles, and they can be found in many areas. It is not my choice to be “Angry” about all the “Hate Mail.” That is a battle for my Lord and Savior!

Maybe there is some wisdom in the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Maybe I need to consider my Life and where the Lord is taking me before that of others. I do indeed know how that sounds to you the reader, and I am sure someone is going to think, “Yeah…another bites the dust!” Not true! I am considering that a change may be necessary, less about being personable, allowing you into my life and maintaining a more sterile (Clinical) approach. Problem for me is this: I am not too sure of how to make that happen.

Anyways, my Friends…this is not the end…yet a better word may be a Hiatus if you will, maybe fewer articles…more thought out, so to speak! At this point in time, I am not yet sure of my direction. I do understand the Rapture is closer than most are willing to think or consider. That being the case, I understand all the negativity coming my way; yet I must consider all the articles I have already written. Am I in the process of re-writing what has already been said so many times, and not just by me? Could it be that I am simply becoming tired?

I do know this: once a person has done all they can do, it is over. Sadly, in our world, this can mean their Life’s Endeavor is over; and in many situations, the Lord will call them home. I have no fear of that!

Again, I believe I have spoken enough about our Sin and how it is the “Fulcrum” in our Lives, both Physically and Spiritually. It is the single most important thing in the Bible, because what we choose to do with it will decide our Eternal Destination! The next action is what will either Save you, or destroy you…one must first feel the “Conviction of the Holy Spirit.” One will choose to follow Jesus Christ in every way…or they won’t…thus they will see Heaven…or they will see Hell and then the Lake of Fire for Eternity. I did not say this; the Holy Word of God said it…from God’s own Lips to everyone’s ears!

This is a difficult decision for me to make, and it will take some time, as does anything else of worth in this Life. All opinions are welcomed. I look forward to them, actually.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
