Dancing with my heart, my words, my song, and my love, before my God…

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who
LOVE YOUR NAME may rejoice in you. Psalms 5:11

Be Angry ... ?

Be angry, and do not sin” Eph 4:26 (MSG)

Anger is a very difficult emotion that makes yourself, as well as, others often uncomfortable.  Coming home from my parent’s home the other day I had a very interesting conversation with the unquestionable Love of my life so Real within my heart.  So intriguing was the conversation I decided to write it out.  Pondering this act so disturbing, I hardly had the thought before me when a Strong inner Response came Clearly, “Anger is a CLOSE Step towards Me.”  This really threw me, and without understanding I just wrote it down.   The Statement hardly formed a correct sentence to me, let alone making sense.  Then, as I saw the Statement before me, I could see Anger almost like it was a person or substance and it was walking towards God.  Very interesting, I thought.  Then I heard Teacher say “True Anger is your weapon against satan.  Without it you are nothing.  Ohhh, now this began to make more sense as I thought of much Anger towards the devil and how necessary it is to speak against wrong (the enemy’s way).  Teacher says, “Never smile at the enemy, NEVER EVER.”  The Statement seemed so hoarse, yet I could hear Teacher’s matter-of-fact stern Word accompanying the Warmth of His Breath, but with such a no-wavering directive.  I could feel the breaking of my own thoughts beginning to catch sight of anger in a New Concept as I struggled to evaluate Anger as a positive, and not the negative taught so strongly.  Experiencing rejection to a critical position, Anger said to be my fall, I am most curious to hear more. 

I reflected on how Anger has taken me to an edge that gave Might to weakness, Courage to fear, Surrender to what is Right rather than what is wrong.  I began to be inspired… without Anger, how could change be made?  As life hands you wrong, do we get angry?  Do I “BE ANGRY”…?  Frightfully, I began to consider what I had lost because of Anger… have I lost it forever?  I was rejected, abandoned for standing and becoming ‘Angry’ to something destroying two lives. Do I bow under and say it was wrong to be angry about that?

I began to have more questions as I thought of the scripture that reads…

Matthew 5:44 (MSG)
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

I argued the point in my thinking… doesn’t this mean to NOT be Angry… just love, pray, etc your enemy. 

But then the Beauty of His Loving Heart comes to Give…. Teacher says, “NEVER mistake a soul from the enemy whose complete purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy you.”  From this I could see again like a division of a person.  Like each person was two… their soul which God puts a Great Mighty Price upon and Loves, and the enemy that speaks to this soul.  I could see the soul of man as God’s Treasure, but the enemy of that soul was indeed the enemy to all and you should NEVER smile at the enemy. 

Teacher says, “Anger is not what some think.”  I wrote this down and then waited for I did not know what was going to be told, only what I had thought in the past.  I waited to hear New.  Teacher says, “A better way to think of Anger is disagreement.  Jesus/God/Holy Spirit are always 100% in DIS-agreement with the devil.  Even when he speaks my Truth, his intensions are in disagreement with My Heart.”  I really liked the simple understanding of disagreement as an Anger explanation.  I wondered then about the scripture…

Eph 4:26 (MSG)
Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,

I pondered the thought… doesn’t that scripture read ‘BE ANGRY’…. Hummmm ‘BE ANGRY’..!!! ???  Wanted to look it up to make sure.  Then I wondered… so then how do you NOT SIN????  What does that mean? 
Teacher says, “When your disagreement (anger) becomes lined up and in the same intension as the devil – then you’ve slipped over into sin while being angry / disapprove.”  Wow..!  I thought, when my intension are to ‘show them a thing or two’ or ‘get revenge’ or ‘cause harm-not good’, etc… that is SIN.  But Anger itself was a must. I was so amazed as I thought of so many times being Angry against wrong, against another’s wants or souls desire, but NOT sinning… just so Angry at wrong and making that stand.  I knew this would be a great changing in my heart and Strength to better understand Anger.  Not to allow wrong intrude and say it has rights to my heart.

Teacher continues to say, “Real anger will cause a soul to want changes and push for it.  That is My anger, it pushes for Right. That is why the scripture  - child against parent, etc., disapprovement (anger) will cause a heart to run to me.  I Am the Truth.”

I remembered only slightly this scripture and looked it up when I got home.  I’ve written out this amazing scripture…

Matthew 10:34-39 (MSG)
Christ Brings Division
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

I could see how anger/disagreement comes between family members and/or friends and this could cause friction but if open to receive the True Discipline of God, each could watch for the enemy’s tricks to deceive and bring death FOR each other, not against each other.  “Anger is a CLOSE Step towards Me.”
