Why Should We Care What People Say or Think About Us?

Do you doubt Santa? Enjoy Christmas! What are thoughts like? Thoughts are like bullies. What you think people think about you is in you!

Church with Jesse Lee Peterson, Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24, 2023 

||  See clips, links, and notes below. 

Do you believe in Christmas and Santa Claus? Is Christmas under attack? Is Christmas Pagan? Enjoy Christmas without identifying with it! 

What are thoughts like? What have you learned this year about thoughts? Husbands and wives shouldn’t correct or try to help one another too much when they’re tripping out in thoughts. Let them go through it. Only the truth can save you. You’re not God that you can save or help another person. 

Biblical Question: Why are we supposed to care what people say or think about us? 

Thoughts are like bullies. In 2024, don’t let the thoughts bully you.

  9. (0:49:38) (2a) Husbands and wives try to help each other, correcting you. Let you go through it. (0:50:30) She’s happy Randy no longer tries to help her. You are not God. You cannot help me.

    • (1:14:35) Her husband Anthony says it clutters his mind like a dirty room. Good ones? I try to be even-keel. I correct her, because it’s necessary. When she’s in her own funk, but not going to hurt someone
  10. (1:18:10) Young lady’s been here almost 2 years. … Good thoughts? I try not to get a thrill. Bad thought? Random, evil. She’s 21 now. 
    • (1:20:16) Francisco… (1:22:30) Doug… Joel… 
    • (1:26:33) JLP: Be aware of yourself… How long did that last for you? 
    • (1:27:54) Hake: Sucked into good and bad thoughts. 
    • (1:30:49) Anthony: I no longer see myself as my thoughts
  11. (1:31:28) Biblical Question: Why are we supposed to care what people say or think about us? Young man answers… He realized people will think what they do. 
    • (1:35:00) Deborah, used to be a miniskirt hoochie mama. Her grandmother from Mexicali, and her grandparents from Alabama, told her about modesty. Her parents were from the 60s, so they didn’t care. (1:37:10) She cares now, wanting to represent her Jesus, abstain from the appearance of all evil. 
    • (1:37:54) Bigg Bump says we shouldn’t. He doesn’t, but did. He does pay attention to their critique, as they tell you the truth about yourself. (1:39:19) JLP recalls Bigg Bump talking like Ben Carson. What’d he think? Before that, he was fine, but it threw him off. He brings good info. (1:40:22) There were 29 black slaveowners in a specific county, 50 or more in Kentucky… 
  12. (1:41:42) (3) JLP: Got a sales call. She was like a bully. Sales people impose on you. They have to seal the date, because they don’t want you to change your mind. Thoughts are like bullies. They always impose on you. Another story of making a deal with a person. … Stop letting thoughts bully you. It’s just a thought — they have no power. … Even with the truth. Thoughts will bully you with the truth. It’s intellectual. It reminds you of the Bible. … Like husbands and wives. Thoughts will remind you of the person. This year coming up: Stop letting the bully bully you. 
    • (1:46:20) JLP on BQ: It’s the thought has us thinking we know what others are thinking of us! Stop believing thoughts, stop thinking, and you won’t think about what other people are thinking. It’s happening to you, inside of you. You’re thinking about what other people are thinking. 
    • (1:46:20) Randy… Jesse continues… People pretend to love you when they hate you, just to get what they want. 
    • (1:48:49) Deborah: When you start focusing on the Lord, and dress modestly, you don’t think about it, because you’re doing right … Her parents were hippies, but her grandparents’ fits stuck with her. 
  13. (1:50:32) (4) Randy’s wife goes into the closet when her thoughts overtake her and she’s angry. She thinks about her thoughts. Next time. Being aware within yourself what’s going on. Let it happen and overwhelm you. Don’t run from it at all. 
    • (1:55:36) JLP counseled with a man who stayed away from women, and thought he was free. He listened to a thought that lied to him. … Randy’s wife speaks again… (1:58:57) She knows the thoughts in her head are not her thoughts. She always said her body’s her temple, so the things in her are not supposed to be there. JLP: The Devil comes as a nice spirit, but he knows how to get you. He doesn’t play games. They’re happening in your world. You must die. 
  14. (2:01:18) Frederick’s son died at 21. His grandson got stuff from his mother. JLP: When he acts not manly, don’t make it a big deal. God’s working through you. Don’t worry about what she’ll do to him. That’s thoughts from Satan. Overcome the imagination. 
  15. (2:03:31) Daniel also touches on the BQ: His grandparents said: Never steal. You don’t want to be known as a thief…  Why you stole… Jesse (2:05:50) JLP: When you get told not to do 
  16. (2:06:07) New BQ: What is wisdom? 
    • (2:09:15) (7a) All you’ve thought has been a lie.
