You are here: Home What is pity?
Lord Jesus addressed the issue of unworthy pitying and said,
’’Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your
pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and
turn again and rend you’’. Matt.7:6.
It is good for someone to have pity on one another, but it has
to be according to the Lord’s principle, not as will think according
to human knowledge, but as the Holy Ghost directed, which shall
be accepted unto the Lord and bring good success to humanity,
DANGER AHEAD UNWORTHY PITYING
STATEMENT AS FOLLOWS
The standard of God is beyond human imagination and it can never be compare with man’s standard or anything seen or the unseen, He remain unsearchable forever and ever, one should be very careful when following His way not to bye-pass an inch, that shall result to derailment and cause problems to whoever that do so in future. It happened in the land of Israel some time ago that when the children of Israel sin, and God was wroth because of the iniquity they committed that brought disaster upon them, to an extent that God devour those who did evil with spirit of death, but spare the righteous one who did not follow in doing such evil. The Bible give details about what happened as follows. ‘’ And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house’’. Ezekiel.9:4-6. It’s obvious to pity with unrighteous reason which shall latter backfire and become bondage upon whosoever that are found doing so; many are living in abject poverty today as a result of serving under the curse of God for their evil deeds, even from the mistake of Adam has such condition stated, said the Bible. ‘’ In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return’’. Gen.3:19. Let no one be surprised that some among those women you seen walking up and down the street in the world today, looking for husband at all cost are not real, some of them are evil creation, which do hunting for men in other to ruin their career; hardly before one can know them except God Almighty who protect man from such women can show whom they are. The Bible explain ‘’ And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleased God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her’’. Ecc.7:26. Although it wasn’t revealed openly that people may know what caused their predicament which shows they deserve no pity or helping hand at all. But one thing is certain that give clue to the truth, is as Lord Jesus has declared, He said, ‘’ I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are yours’’. John.17:9. Hasn’t this declaration shucking? But who is the Lord referring to as the world? And why can’t the Lord prayed for them? The Bible make thorough explanation, showing whom are the world and their deeds saying, ‘’ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passed away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abided forever.’’. 1John.2:15-17. These are negative attitude of the world that have drove them out from God mercy completely, even right from the days of Adam till present day are the world remain unrighteous. And if this is the cause to their predicament, means they are responsible for their suffering, except whom the LORD God will have mercy upon is exceptional, because the world regard not God as God to give Him His due honor as their creator. Bible made this confirmation clear saying. ‘’ Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. … Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers’’, Roman.1:21, 29. All these abominable things had been put to practice by men, which escalate problems that leaded into suffering from time to time and whosoever, pitying someone that is serving under curse waste time. It happened in the old that Prophet Jeremiah has to spoke out the mind of God concerned the punishment that are set aside for the children of Israel which the LORD spoke to him, saying. ‘’ Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place. Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of naught, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore, thus said the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them. Jeremiah.14:11-16. These groups of prophets were smartly act as if God commanded them to prophesied peace upon the people while they have commit iniquity in the sight of God, they never allowed them to know that God is angry with them, perhaps they may have repented heart and change from their wicked way, which brought forth the curse of God upon the Prophets and the entire people. Likewise, when one is pitying or praying for the wicked who are serving under the curse of God, it is very dangerous to do so, let’s be very careful not to offend God while thinking we are pitying people. I am not saying one should not pray or pity people, what am saying is that, one should ask for divine Spirit that can direct one to the right person who need to be pity or praying for, and not to praying for those whom God allowed to passed through the suffering which they have commit iniquity. On like Cain who killed Abel his brother, said the Bible. ‘’ And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou does well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou does not well, sin lied at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him’’. Gen.4:6-7. Also, Judas Iscariot case, compare to Simon Peter’s case, if one will reason concerned what happened to these two men while following Lord Jesus; both of them do offend the Lord in one way or the other, but Lord Jesus prayed for Peter ever before he deny Him saying. ‘’ And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren’’. Luke.22:31-32. When come to Judas Iscariot case, He did not pray for him instead, the Bible disclosed saying. ‘’ And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou does, do quickly’’. John.13:27. All these facts proved that not everyone that are suffering deserve to be pity or praying for them, the Bible made clear statement saying, ‘’ And He said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy’’. Exodus.33:19. Therefore beloved, let us have pity on whom God has directed us to do so, and not by our own self will, many have been doomed for the sake of unworthy pitying and are regretting for such action they took today. Therefore, beware of whom you pity and be not harmed, for many there be that are serving under curse of God for their evil did, Amen.
Jesus Christ is Lord
