    In the Spirit of Discernment,




    Matthew 10:16
    King James Version (KJV)

    16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.




    ... sheep in the midst of wolves

    ... be ye therefore wise as serpents

    ... and harmless as doves

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    John Wesley’s Explanatory Notes


    Verse 6

    [6] Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.


    Here is another instance of that transposition, where of the two things proposed, the latter is first treated of.

    Give not — to dogs - lest turning they rend you: Cast not - to swine - lest they trample them under foot. Yet even then, when the beam is cast out of thine own eye, Give not - That is, talk not of the deep things of God to those whom you know to be wallowing in sin. neither declare the great things God hath done for your soul to the profane, furious, persecuting wretches. Talk not of perfection, for instance, to the former; not of your experience to the latter. But our Lord does in nowise forbid us to reprove, as occasion is, both the one and the other.

    words of wisdom...

    evenstill sometimes in my imperfection, I make poor judgment and always pray that an intervention will be made for me...

    This scripture reminds me when the Bible spoke about the apostle Paul when he was going to speak to an audience of people who were in a temple of Artemis [I think] and around this time period, there was another man who began to talk to others and as he was professing, some said to him, [paraphrasing] 'Paul I know, but who are you... and then he was attacked'!... Oh that scripture gripped me. And eventhough that possessed person did not bother Paul, later on, some other friends of Paul convinced him that he should not speak to the crowd, because they became angry as they were riled up previously to shout againt Paul...because their little idols of the goddess 'Artemis' [?] that they bought funded certain people's lifestyle...

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    ... Yes, I'm very familiar with the account you spoke to Chevron Dove; its grand.

    Jewish exorcists attempted to call upon the name of the Lord, and boy did they get a surprise, lol.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    Matthew 10:14-16
    King James Version (KJV)

    14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

    15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.


    ... nor hear your words

    ... when ye depart out of that house or city

    ... shake off the dust of your feet

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    "The wind bloweth where it listeth”

    The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit (John 3:8) KJV

    ... so is every one that is born of the Spirit

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,





    If Any Man Be Ignorant, Let Him Be Ignorant
    Let Him Alone

    1 Corinthians 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

    38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.



    ... but if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant
