Emotion – Insight – Empathy

These three simple words when manifest into the reality of the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant of God can create either a blessing or a curse based on how the individual wears them, which can often be found within the countenance of their face.

Most of the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant of God I have personally known carry within themselves a great capacity for all three; emotion, insight, and empathy when they are not suppressed out of fear, anger, wounds, or self-preservation. Properly managed and subjected to the regulation of the Holy Spirit, all three of these aspects of the Remnant’s emotional and mental being are both useful to God and mankind.

Over the next few posting, we will explore each of these emotional and mental faces which are worn by the CURRENT Spiritual Remnant of God; exploring both, the “blessing” side and the “curse” side of each. For now, we will begin with some basic understanding of what the definition for each word actually is, not what we might think it to be. With the dummy down of America which has taken place over the last twenty years we find many people have a very basic concept of what words mean, when in fact words are often rich with meaning and have many layers of meaning when truly understood.

Empathy = per Merriam-Webster’s Medical Desk Dictionary

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
