The Devil Laughs

Christine's Collection

A pastor friend of ours tells the story of how he and his wife heard the devil’s fiendish laugh one night and it terrified them. During the day he and his wife had gotten into some dispute and at bedtime they were still upset with each other. Silently they got ready for bed. He lie down on his side; she on hers, backs to each other, not a word exchanged. Caught up in their angry thoughts, sleep didn’t come for either of them.

Suddenly in the silence they heard the most menacing, diabolical laughter. Horrified, they both jumped out of bed; a moment later they were on their knees praying to be delivered from this evil. Whatever the issue was that caused their dispute, it seemed so foolish when they understood what a victory it gave to the forces of Satan.

He and his wife felt that God allowed them…

The 3 Abominations to The LORD

The 3 Abominations to the LORD

By GL Jones

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:2, 5, 8-10, 12, 14, 26‬ ‭KJV‬‬
2- “The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.

5- A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

8- The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

9- “The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the Lord: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

10- Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.”
12- A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.

14- The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.

26- The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.”

The 3 Abominations to the LORD :

1. The Sacrifice of the Wicked (vs 8)
2. The Way of the Wicked (vs 9)
3. The Thoughts of the Wicked (vs 26)


[ ] We can contrast each of these with the behavior of the Righteous before God:

1. The Upright’s Prayer is God’s Delight (vs 8)
2. God loves those that follow after Righteousness (vs 9)
3. The Words of the Pure are Pleasant (vs 26)

Conclusion:

““And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭35:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭21:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  •  God doesn’t care for the Sacrifice,the Way Of the Wicked or the Thoughts of the Wicked!
  • God’s delight is with the Pure, Upright & the Righteous!
  • We Must endeavor to walk the Highway of Holiness in which there is no error!

The Way of a Wife

Christine's Collection

by Edgar Guest

She wasn’t hungry, so she said.
A salad and a cup of tea
was all she felt that she could eat,
but it was different with me.
“I’m rather hungry,” I replied.
“If you don’t mind, I think I’ll take
some oysters to begin with
and a good old-fashioned sirloin steak.”

Now wives are curious in this—
to make the statement blunt and straight—
there’s nothing tempts their appetites
like food upon another’s plate.
And when those oysters six appeared
she looked at them and said to me,
“Just let me try one, will you, dear?”
And right away she swallowed three.

On came the steak and promptly she
exclaimed, “Oh my that looks so good!
I think I’d like a bit of it.”
(The game is one I understood.)
I cut her off a healthy piece
and never whimpered when she said,
“Now just a few…

On Personal Branding

By db0ccelli Brand yourself mass marketing to reach the wider crowds. Iron burned red hot and glowing: quick pressed to unmarked flesh. Soft sizzle pain then jagged scar: a logo that’s skin deep. Remainders product placed remind them of who you know you are. Misinterpretations turning blind eyes facing floors. Your martyrdom’s sans press coverage. […]

How Empaths Should Cope with Dishonesty in Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths

 GL Jones (Illustrations from PinInterest)

I am an Empath:




  • Empaths seek Honesty & Truthfulness or Truth
  • Empaths often get hung up on Evidence or Proof!
  • We expect everyone to be fair or truthful like we are
  •  This is an unrealistic expectation because Life is not always fair and people are not always truthful 
  • As a matter of fact, there are some people with personality disorders who are absolute liars: Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths








  • Empaths being very codependent tend to be drawn to Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths who are often very Dishonest with the Empath because of the need to control or manipulate the Empath or the relationship.

  • This completely frustrates the Empath!

 –   My suggestion to the Empath is to know your audience and those people that you are in a relationship with.

  •  There comes a point in a relationship where the Empath may have to lower their expectations for these dishonest people or go No Contact!
  •  Since it is not always possible for the Empath to go No Contact with with some of these dishonest people (the Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths) the following is suggested: 


1. Use the Grey Rock Method



2. Don’t Blab (Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths love Blabbers)

3. Use the Empathic Supernova Effect 

  • ( This is where the Empath tones down their personality radiance to mirror or match that of the Narcissists, Sociopaths & Psychopaths or other Dishonest person!)

4.If the Empath finally decides to go No Contact then be accountable to a trusted friend or advisor.
