Why did you not tell me?

There are people who send me their prayer requests by e-mail, call by phone or meet me personally and ask for prayers for their problems. For many of these requests, I pray with a common prayer, "Lord, please answer all the prayer requests that have come to me. Answer them according to your will O Lord and let your name be glorified, In Jesus name, Amen."

Of these there are quite a few who repeatedly ask for fervent prayers and also them which the Holy Spirit inspires me to pray continually for long periods of time. Some of these prayers go on for years together till a problem is resolved or a need answered.

One of the amusing things regarding this matter is that many fail to inform me once their prayer has been answered. For example, there have been prayer requests for couples who have not had children for long and some who need prayers for difficult pregnancies, but once the child is born, many forget to call or e-mail that their prayer has been answered. It can be due to several reasons, best known only to the Lord, but it's always best to be thankful and grateful.

Regarding this matter, I saw a dream. I walk in to a room, where a man in his 60's stands with a big smile and "mission accomplished" look on his face. I recognize him to be a vice principal of a school, who had asked me to pray for his daughter's marriage a couple of years ago. When we used to meet then, he used to tell me how his only daughter who was in her thirties had still not married and how that was a matter of grief to him and his wife. I would tell him that I would be interceding for her continually. This prayer had continued for more than two years now and I used to pray for her, naming her almost every day in prayer to God Almighty.

"What about the matter that you asked me to pray for, dear Sir?" I asked him (in the dream). "Oh, my daughter...she is happily married now. We too have been relieved of a great burden" was his response. His sentence did not end with a "Thank you". To my question, "Why did you not tell me, since I have been praying for her for so long?", he just smiled and looked away.

Some may say, we are thankful and grateful to God for his answers to our prayers, for he is the one who really matters. Right as that be, as Christians, for us, the right attitude would also be to be thankful to them who intercede for us in the presence of God Almighty.

Careless Christian

This dream was about a youth who had a narrow escape from a gruesome accident, was hospitalized for a couple of months and after intense intercession from his family especially his mother and other ministers, regained function and strength in his limbs and became ambulant again. He was led to Christ by a Christian minister and his wife, started attending church and was baptized in water. Earlier he had led of life of youthful exuberance sometimes bordering on the wild, but he seemed to have quietened much after him coming to the Lord.

A few months after he started attending church, I saw this dream concerning him. He was standing on a railway track with his arms stretched out looking at a train approaching him from his right. 3 of us: me, his mother and a mutual friend of ours were standing at a distance, shouting and waving to him to move away from the track. The train was fast approaching, but he seemed to care not and laughed as we kept warning him. As the train closed in on him, he moved away at the last moment and when we confronted him for his careless attitude, he remarked, "It's not my fault, it's not my fault." The dream ended there.

There are many Christians who live carelessly after coming to Christ, taking uncalled for risks, involving themselves in worldly lusts, inviting satanic interference in their lives, that jeopardize their spiritual walk. This youth seemed to care not, even though he knew that what he was doing was dangerous and could lead to his death or some sort of disability. Proper worship, a strong prayer life adequate meditation of and complete obedience to the Word of God  are all very important to live a strong Christian life. Neglecting these basics can lead to spiritual poverty, which is enough for evil spiritual forces to attack the weak believer and destroy his/her spiritual life and also bring physical ailments or even life threatening situations.

The Holy Spirit did not exactly reveal what risks he was taking in this dream, but in another dream sometime later, I saw the same youth taking part in a booze party. 

The Apostle Paul exhorts the believers at Philippi in this manner....
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. (Philippians 2:12, 13)

A good exhortation for us all...........

God centered life

One afternoon as I took a short nap after my morning session at the clinic, I saw a dream wherein a suited man comes in to my consulting room as a patient. He introduced himself as the head of a Pentecostal organisation in the Gulf region. In the dream, all he talked about was the greatness of his organization and how he as chief had made the organization what it was now. The dream ended there. That same evening this minister came to see me for some bodily ailment of his and after I had prescribed him medicines, he introduced himself as the head of one of the largest Pentecostal organizations in the Gulf and all he spoke about centered on the organization and its greatness and how he himself had achieved the position that he was in now. He left after a while.

The question that the Holy Spirit asked me after he left was- Is that truly a God centered life? Is God the true love of your life?

I pondered the matter for a while.....several thoughts came to my mind.....
Our lives centers around many things; for some it is family, for some it is the job that they do, for some it is someone they are in love with, for some it is the Church that they go to and like this minister, some love the religious organizations that they lead or are involved with.

But what does God desire for us and from us???
God's desire for all of us who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior is that our lives be God/Jesus centered; that he becomes the true love of our lives, that we listen to his voice and follow him as he wants us to. The Good Shepherd and his sheep.
We don't ignore the other things that matter, but our top most priority becomes God and it will be reflected in every aspect of our lives. They we speak, the way we deal with others and the way in which we bring glory to God in everything we do. A truly blessed Christian life. Praise God.

Suicidal Tendency

Sometime back, I saw a dream in which I was going up in a lift on the outside of a building. The lift was half open to the outside, meaning that it had railings waist high, the top half being open. In the lift with me was a teen aged boy, son of a young widow, whom I knew for quite a while. He was fidgety as the lift went up, a strange fear writ on his face. He attempted to climb the top of the railings and jump out. I stopped him from doing so twice, but every few moments that passed by, he kept trying even more to do so. The dream ended there.

Every now and then, we read about suicides that happen around us, people taking their lives in desperation because of various reasons. There are evil spirits that incite a person to commit suicide, when the person is desperate. Taking one's own life is a sin and is against the teachings of the Bible. 

Through this dream, the Lord was telling me to pray for this boy, so that the evil spirit that was influencing him to harm himself would be stopped from doing so. God is good, all the time.

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:1-5)

Could this have been Apostle Paul's Thorn?

Sometime back I saw a dream in which the Apostle Paul was being led by a soldier with his hands bound with chains. The Apostle looked to be in his forties and had a beard. After a while the soldier commanded him to kneel down which he obeyed. As the soldier began walking away, suddenly Paul jumped to his feet and pushed the soldier down with his chained hands, making him fall to the ground. The dream ended there.

Could a retaliatory attitude have been Paul's thorn in the flesh was the thought that impressed my mind the following morning when I woke up. The Bible doesn't specifically mention what Paul's thorn was, though many have put forth guesses like an eye ailment, epilepsy, malaria and a few more.

We read in 2 Corinthians Chapter 12

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me, but He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:7-9)

Regarding the retaliatory attitude, we read of an event recorded in the book of Acts.....

Luke the Physician writes,
Then Paul, looking earnestly at the council, said, "Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day." When he said thus, the high priest Ananias commanded those who stood by him to strike him on the mouth. Then Paul said to him, "God will strike you, you whitewashed wall! For you sit to judge me according to the law, and do you command me to be struck contrary to the law?" Those who stood told Paul, "Do you revile God's high priest?" Paul replied, "I did not know, brethren, that he was the high priest; for it is written, "You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people."' (Acts 23:1-5)

Paul speaks about the weakness of his and every believer's flesh when he writes to the Romans...
For I know that in me (my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I want to do, I do not do; but the evil I do not want to do, that I do. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. (Romans 7:18-20)

The great Apostle probably had his moments of weaknesses too, but he taught and lived a Christian life that overcame sin and unrighteousness. 

Those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:24)

Indeed Paul was a great Apostle, a true champion of the Christian faith.

Trump is coming

I saw this dream while taking a short nap in the afternoon, a day before the US elections. In the dream, I entered a posh restaurant where a man was busy arranging tables and chairs and putting flower vases on the tables. I watched him for a while and then being curious to know why he was working so urgently, I asked him the same. He smiled at me and all he told me was "Trump is coming", before making himself busy again. The dream ended there.

When I woke up after my nap, the next day being election day, I had a fairly good idea who God's choice for President of the US was.  All I did was pray a small prayer that what I saw in the dream would come true. And it did come true.

I believe perhaps my prayer was among the smallest for God's choice of the president and God would have made tens of thousands to pray the same as he had made me (with or without dreams).

We read in the book of Daniel....
Daniel answered and said: "Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His and He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding." (Daniel 2:20, 21)

Yes, it is God who removes kings and raises up kings....also Presidents & Prime Ministers.

We do not know how Donald Trump will fare as the new president of the USA, but God has his plans and purposes for every person and for every nation. Only time will tell how things go with him and the country he leads. Whatever it be, we live in the end times and we need to keep praying that we be found worthy to join the Lord Jesus Christ when he comes back to gather his faithful.

Monkeylike

In a dream that I saw sometime back, a minister known to me, stood near me accusing me that I was not doing right regarding spiritual matters and finances. I smiled and told him that I would consider what he had said and take the counsel of the Holy Spirit regarding the matters. While I was saying this, all of a sudden he jumped in to an adjacent plot of land which was not his, which had many coconut and mango trees. Soon he was swinging around like a monkey, plucking coconuts and mangoes and throwing them to the ground, having an enjoyable time at the expense of others. The dream ended there.

What the Holy Spirit was indicating in this dream was that- here was a minister of the Gospel ready to exhort and correct others, yet not living righteously himself. Monkey business seemed to come easily to him, causing grief and loss to others in the process.....God help him.

All of us who preach to others must take up the following exhortation from the Apostle Paul regarding our lives as ministers of the Gospel.

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. Everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.(1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

Praise brings strength

Sometime back, I dreamt of myself walking laboriously on a path. I looked tired and weak and every step that I took was tiring me even more. After a while of going on in this manner, I start praising God with whatever strength I have left and suddenly things start changing. My physical strength increases and I start walking briskly and finally when I praise God vociferously, I receive strength to run and my face beams with joy.

Praising God even when we are going through troubles can definitely bring about a change in our whole being as is evidenced in this dream. The Bible repeatedly tells us that God is our strength and that he gives strength to his people and also that his strength is manifest in our weakness.

Habakkuk the prophet puts it aptly when he says,
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

God is our strength, he will enable us to go on the heights as a deer as we praise him even when things are not going well for us in our lives.

Disloyalty

Over a period of time, the Lord showed me several dreams of a person who was employed by me. He got his salary the 1st week of every month  and received other benefits too, but his loyalty waned over a period of time. 

In one dream, he was driving my car; there was litter lying in the car, but he seemed not to care to clean it and after reaching home, he ignored it and went his way. In another dream, he was cleaning my house and all of a sudden he goes away to chat with people who had befriended him, ignoring me and the work that he was doing. I ask him why he was behaving as he was, but he just smiled.
In yet another dream, he was shown to have a lackadaisical approach to the work that he was given.

As believers, we are called to be faithful to the people and institutions that employ us or to them for whom we work.

Though the word "servant" in the following verses may seem a bit harsh, there are lessons that we all can learn regarding being loyal and faithful to them for whom we work.

Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. (Colossians 3:22-24)

Robes of righteousness

One night I saw a dream regarding a Pastor friend of mine and his wife. In addition to their secular jobs, they have been laboring in the Lord's vineyard for quite a few years now. They are trustworthy and despite setbacks in their ministry, have not given up, but have pressed on. 
In the dream, they are shown to be setting out for ministry on a particular day. As I watch, they open their cupboards and in it are totally white and sparkling robes kept neatly on the shelves. They take one robe each from the shelves and wear it. When they wear it, they become radiant. When I see that they become radiant, I try to take one of the robes but they tell me that these have been given to them by the Lord and that I should wear what the Lord gives me. Then they set out to minister for the Lord. The dream ended there.

As I meditated on this dream, the Lord reminded me of a few verses from the Word of God.
Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let your godly ones sing for joy. (Psalm 132:9)
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. (Revelation 19:8)
But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. (Revelation 3:4)

Yes, God Almighty clothes his children with righteousness. The fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints and it's a fact that they who do not soil their garments while living in this world, will walk with Jesus in white for they are worthy. Praise God.

The enemy sets up camp

Recently, one night I saw a dream wherein the enemy was setting up camp in a city. There were no specifics revealed as to who they were or which place it was, but the dream continued for a long time. I saw how they dug trenches, built fortifications and set up their weaponry. Most of it was an aerial view so I could see clearly that it was an elaborate process and their plan was to kill and to destroy.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit may not give us any specifics of where and who, but only wants us to pray that the plans of the enemy may crash and be shattered.

God is seeking believers and ministers who will pray and intercede according to his desires. Will you volunteer to be one of them? If you are already an intercessor, stay true to your Savior.

God refreshes the weary

A minister and his family joined the church that I used to minister in. He and his wife were at crossroads in their ministry having given up a house church because of local opposition. They had quite a few believers in their house church who were directed to join other churches. Their passion for Christ had been blunted by the recent happenings in their life. A few days after they joined the church that I ministered in, one night I had a dream about them...The minister and his wife  were standing by a river dismayed and confused, not knowing what to do. After a while they decide to swim in the river and soon their countenance changed; they were refreshed and rejuvenated and had joyous faces as they came out of the waters.

God, here was showing, how joining the new worship and being filled with the Holy Spirit, would refresh and rejuvenate their lives, which at present was dull and dreary.

They went on from strength to strength as they attended this new worship and in God's good time he went on to minister to the congregation and even become the local Pastor.

I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. (Jeremiah 31:25)

Perseverance

I usually record my daily audio messages on a recorder and then transfer it to my laptop for editing and mixing. Recently I recorded an audio message with perseverance as the theme  and accidentally deleted it while transferring it from my recorder to my laptop. I wondered for a while as to what was to be done, whether I should re-record it or not, whether to skip sending the message that day or record it at a later date and while contemplating these things, I heard the still small voice in me say, "Persevere". I was not very enthusiastic when I heard that but gave in to the voice and redid the whole message.

Perseverance (persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success) pays off on the long run and especially in Christian ministry, one needs to persevere, because that's the path our Savior chose to walk. He persevered despite adversaries and adversities and achieved the goal that his Father had set for him to achieve- Salvation for mankind.

Christian ministry has its ups and downs, the mountains and the valleys experiences, (not as projected on TV with some preaching only blessings or the mountain experiences). The valley experiences bring discouragement, depression and frustration and it can last a while, but as ministers we need to persevere to achieve whatever goal God Almighty has set for each of us to achieve. The Holy Spirit of God, as our Counsellor, will help us in this matter.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1, 2)

Grumbling

There are times when I complain and grumble while I speak to God. It happened sometime back when I was passing through difficult times as someone related to us as a family was troubling us much with his words and deeds. As a family, we had been praying to God for easing the situation but to no avail. Thus the grumbling for God's delay in answering our prayers.

The grumbling was while I traveled back home after my morning session at the clinic. That afternoon as I took a short nap, I saw a dream in which I was in my consulting room and a patient who stood near me suddenly collapsed and fell to the ground. As the dream ended, I was frantically calling for help from the support staff. When I woke up, I prayed fervently that nothing I saw in the dream may actually happen at my work place.

When I reached the clinic, a patient who was waiting to see me came in and told me that he had suffered an allergic reaction to some medications I had prescribed the previous day. At night, he had to be taken to the emergency unit of the local hospital and was given injections and medicines to get rid of the allergy. He said he had endured a difficult night, but was better now. I remembered the dream while he spoke to me and prayed another prayer in my mind.

I examined him for any lingering allergy and seeing that he was good, I sent him away assuring him that he would do fine.

The dream, the problem the patient endured and me...............what was all this about?

It was just God telling me to stop grumbling........He had been working faithfully while I was sleeping well the previous night....the problem could have been worse with the patient as I saw in the dream, but the restraining hand of God was helping me as well as the patient.

Sometimes we grumble, as the Israelites did in the wilderness, though we experience God's faithfulness day in and day out. They had the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire everyday and the manna too, yet they grumbled.

We must realize that God is continually working on behalf of his children whether we see it or not.
As Jesus said, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working." (John 5:17)

Luck

In a dream that I saw sometime back, I and my younger daughter are attending a lucky draw (which we hardly ever do) with many exciting prizes to be won. We wait expectantly for our numbers to be called, but other numbers are called and the winners boast about the trophies and prizes they receive saying that luck favored them. This goes on for sometime and then we look at each other and walk away from the place coming to a realization and speaking to each other, that what people speak of as luck is not for us and that as believers in Jesus Christ everything that we get in our lives is given by God either as wages for the jobs or work that we do or as good gifts from our merciful Father in heaven.

James writes in his epistle,
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. (James 1:17)

Some Christians justify their stance of playing games of chances frittering away their money and time, by quoting a verse from Ecclesiastes which says,
"I returned and saw under the sun that: "The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all." (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

 But as believers in Jesus Christ, we must realize that for us, every blessing that we receive, whether monetary or otherwise is a gift from our loving Heavenly Father because we have put our trust in his son Jesus Christ. Luck has nothing to do with anything that you may even win in a thing that the world calls a lucky draw.

Prior Warning To Pray & Avert Sickness

A couple who used to earlier worship with us had a beautiful girl child. They were born again believers, standing true to Jesus in their faith, involved in Bible study, prayer and worship. One night I saw a dream where I saw myself speaking to this family about spiritual matters and as I observed, they had another young infant with them now. He was in his father's hands, but had an abnormally large head, a condition medically termed hydrocephalus. The dream lingered for a while as I kept looking at the infant and then it faded.

This was a warning from the Lord to pray that the next child that would be born to this family may not have this serious illness. I informed the couple of the same and we prayed together for the matter, that nothing adverse as seen in the dream may happen when they had another child in the future.

God loves his children and cares for them and through his Holy Spirit makes known to them things that yet remain hidden in the future. Jesus said, 
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. (John 16:13, 14)

A need for cleansing

In a dream, I saw myself standing under a running water shower and explaining to an young evangelist, how God desired that he cleansed himself of the unrighteousness in his life. The running water shower with which I was being bathed here represented the Word of God.

We may do many things for God and his kingdom, but sometimes forget to cleanse ourselves and live close to God. What matters to God is holiness, without which the Bible says, no one will see God.

A few verses regarding this matter goes in this manner.....
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (Ephesians 5:25-27)

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)

Therefore, prepare your minds for action, be sober and set your hope perfectly on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as children of obedience, not conforming yourselves according to your former lusts as in your ignorance, but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior; because it is written, "You shall be holy; for I am holy." (1 Peter 1:13-16)

Thiefs

In a dream  I saw some time back, I saw myself warning an young evangelist of how other Christians would use his works, especially the songs that he penned, with their names on it. When I called up the young man and told him of the dream, he told me that many people had already done that when he had published his first song. That had troubled him and he had questioned them who had done so, but he also said that, now he no longer bothered about such things, because even if they had done so, it would only take his work farther and bring glory to God.

I have experienced the same on a few occasions when I send out Christian devotionals on the web. There was a guy who used to send me back the same devotionals with his name typed underneath. It troubled me initially and I confronted him by email, but he did not seem to bother to reply and kept doing the same for a while. God must have dealt with him, for after a while he stopped. 

Anyway, we can learn a few things from Paul the Apostle who wrote regarding such things to the believers in Philippi.....Some indeed preach Christ even out of envy and strife, and some also out of good will. The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, thinking that they add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What does it matter? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed. I rejoice in this, yes, and will rejoice. (Philippians 1:15-18)

God's divine protection

In a dream that I saw in September 2015, I am seated in a vehicle that resembles a inflated circular seat and my father is sitting next to me. Suddenly the vehicle takes off in to the air at great speed and as we rise upwards to a great height, I look down at the buildings and the other things on the ground. A strange fear grips me as we ascend and the vehicle swirls in the wind; we seem to be travelling to a far off land which resembles an island as we approach it. I fear that we will not make it to the place and perhaps I would fall down from my seat and perish before we reach our destination. But as I look to my left side, I see my father's left arm enveloping me and holding me in such a way that I would not fall. The dream ended with us landing at where we were heading.

This was another dream where God affirmed that his loving arms are always enveloping me when I pass through difficult times in my life. Will I get through/will I make it?, is often a question that arises in my heart when I go through such times, but God has been faithful every single time and His promise to never leave and never forsake stands true. In the dream, God the father was represented by my own earthly father as it has been in many other dreams that I have seen.

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms..... (Deuteronomy 33:27)

Jealousy

Even ministers of God are sometimes jealous when other ministers are blessed by God Almighty in the projects that they undertake. Once when we had released a new Christian song album, I presented a free copy to a minister of another Church, who was an acquaintance. He was friendly whenever we met and we spoke of ministry matters often.
When I gifted him the copy, he was surprised that we were in to music ministry and even more surprised when I told him that we were recording songs for more than 10 years and that this was our 10th album. When we met on a couple of occasions later, he would just say a greeting and walk away.
One night, as I slept, I had a dream wherein I was walking in a corridor and saw this minister standing in priestly robes talking to a young woman. As I approached them, he avoided looking at me and kept talking to the woman. I passed by and as I walked away I knew in my spirit that he was purposely avoiding me because of pride and jealousy in his heart for I had achieved something that he could not.
The Bible says, "Jealousy is as cruel as the grave; Its flames are flames of fire; a most vehement flame. (Song of Solomon 8:6)
