Our prayers are only answered if they are good for us. But sometimes you will hear people say be careful what you pray for you might just get it. We all have had times we wish we didn’t pray for something, because it turned out not exactly what we expected. I prayed for a pup and it turned out a disaster for me and for the rest of my animals and I end up having to give it away. And that brought tears, because I loved him, but he simply wasn’t suitable. So it is advisable ( here I have to listen to my own advice) and that is ask God whether it is His Will or not. His Will is always love, so whatever He Wills it is going to be the right decision to make.
The battle of the sexes is planned by Satan to destroy the human race. God wants us to love one another not hate one another. When we obey God, there are no losers, and we become free, valued, loved, and respected, and also, we bring the best out of one another. We need each other. Married couples are one flesh. How they treat one another matters very much. What we sow we reap. It takes both the husband and the wife to make a marriage work. You can’t expect one to do all the giving, while the other does all the taking. It doesn’t work that way. If you want happiness, you must follow Jesus’s example. Jesus is a giver. We are told to treat one another as we would like to be treated ourselves, which is kindness, respect, honour, forgiveness, love, friendship, loyalty, patience, acceptance and so on. Nobody wants to be ruled by another. Nobody wants to be nagged to death. Nobody enjoys it when they aren’t appreciated.
Men and women are different in many ways for a reason. We complement one another, that is if we follow Jesus’s example. We have different needs and different strengths and weaknesses. Men want respect more than love, and women want love more than respect. We have a different language; we have to really listen to one another. I believe most arguments between women and men are because of misinterpreting one another.
A man’s strength is often what a woman is in need of, and a woman’s strength is often what a man is in need of. God has designed us that way. Women have leadership ability too. Men and women lead differently. We need both leaders. We have different nurturing and protective skills. The Church needs both men and women leaders. Together, we can fight Satan with the power of God and win souls for Him.
Most Christians I think go through a period where they think they committed the sin of Blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, but have not. I know I did when I was a young person. I suffered with blaspheme thoughts directed to God and became quiet sick over it. Now I know I was just being attacked by the devil. It was him making out the blaspheme thoughts were my thoughts. When they were really him putting those thoughts into my head. Without me wanting them there. Many Christians are having this problem. So don’t be disturbed.
What is blaspheme against the Holy Spirit according to Clare from the Small Still Voice? Jesus explains it is someone who knows God exits, but still preaches against God to everyone. They deliberately turn people away from God, even after a personal experience of Him. These people can still be saved if they turn back to God, but they will have a stain on their garments for eternity. So it is people who once knew Him and became His enemy despite knowing His love and mercy.
Many Protestants don’t believe Catholics are Christian and therefore will all go to hell, far as they are concern. Both my parents have left this world. My mother a Catholic and my father a Presbyterian. Both of my parents appeared to me after they had died. Even though I can’t prove this, but both have made it safely to heaven.
I just want to remind Protestants that they didn’t exist until the fifteen hundreds. So what they are saying about Catholics going to hell, because they happen not to understand our relationship with Mary and some other things. I just want to say what kind of God do they believe in? Do they believe since there was no Protestants until the fifteen hundreds, that everybody in the entire world went to hell, because there was no Protestants at that time to teach us better? Not all Protestants believe Catholics are not Christian but sadly many do.
