12 Feb If You Don’t Get Past ANGER, You Won’t Know GOD
(Watch 4 1/2 minute excerpt: ‘Why Living Life Without a Plan Is Better Than Planning’) We talked about this past week’s biblical question: What did Jesus mean when he said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” One man realized he didn’t know the answer but ideas about it kept coming to mind.
Jesse said that God is your teacher. Revelation is different from thinking and learning knowledge.
Jesse told a story of how he forgot he was holding his wallet, and Satan fed his mind ideas of how he lost it. One person related to that story, and told how she put her glasses on her head and thought she lost them.
Jesse told of how he started BOND 27 years ago, without any plan. He realized that anger held black people back, and not “racism.” Things unfolded from a single meeting turning into two, three. He formed the organization BOND. He spoke at schools, started a radio show and the BOND home. He was hated and banned by worldly people who support lies such as homosexuality and “racism,” but he kept with the truth.
Jesse explained to one person that anger is easy to overcome: Do not overreact to the thoughts and feelings that come when they rise.
