4/26/23 ECP letter from Charles L. Robinson Jr. of Edifying Christian Publications to those exclusive to physical interactions towards me (Charles L. Robinson Jr.) with continuous subtle and transparent hostility. You know who you are; You know your particular setting whereby the hostility exists (various places); and it is time for closure (a loving-godly act.)
In our physical interactions (conversations and/or physical presence), it has been obvious that the word of God has created hostility in our interactions. Ironically, recently listening to the loving-former senior Pastor of First Baptist of Atlanta (Charles Stanley), he brings a reminder to all (through one of his clips) about how there are some people in life that will never like you and/or will not be for you. Back to us, me and some of my physical interactions, the word of God has created your great dislike towards me and it is obvious that you are not for my ministry continuing the gospel of Jesus Christ (Ray Charles could even see that.) I say this to you in love and in another attempt for you to see the pure divinity in our circumstances: "It is the word of God that has pierced you, I have not pierced you". Time has gradually expired and your hostility (subtle and transparent) still presents itself. Therefore, I have bridleth my tongue. Why? To obedience to God and respect to you. Once the Holy scriptures are not received, obedience to God says to back up and shut up. Here I am again tempting to bring pure divine (of God) light to our circumstances: to bridleth means "to control" and does not mean to "not to shut up". I am quiet (my shut up) around you and you have deemed me proper now based off your standards (me shutting up is your standard of satisfaction and you not being irritated.) Yes, undeniably, there is a time to be silent, but there is undeniably a time to speak up. But for you, you say this about me: "The boy has finally learned to shut up". No, "This boy has learned control". When it was time to impart, I practiced control and imparted and now that the impartations have not been received, it's been time to practice control of shutting up. I have not been wrong in talking up in the past and so-called correct now by learning to shut up. I say this in love: "You did not have the tolerance to deal with certain scriptures (too easily offended but I'm still praying that you will grow out of it) in the past and if I started talking up tomorrow (remove from my quiet) you would still respond the same way: easily offended which causes you to fight me, unlawfully (with the wrong intent) test me, and play other churches, pastors, and so forth against me ( attempting to make me feel insecure and unwanted because you or no one else supposedly wants me.) Here we go again, another attempt to show pure divinity in our circumstances: the previous issues (fighting, unlawful testing, and playing mental games playing people against me) are all contrary to obedience to God. Inner disobedience to God creates self condemnation. So this is what happens: I minister a holy scripture(s) to you, the scripture(s) cut-pierce you (not me cutting you), then the cut by the scriptures self condemn you (not me condemning you), and as a result of your self condemnation you start fighting, unlawfully testing (test me not to build me up, but test me for your so-called payback or so-called even up with me), and play out your games. Another piece of divine advice as you attempt to keep score against me: The attitude when you hear the word of God you start to think: "Awe smack, he got me on that one, we got to council together and get him back" i.e.- you make a game out of it (keeping score for a victory.) You know scripture but your motive for learning and quoting scripture needs adjustment. You do not learn scripture and quote scripture to pay back, get even, or to look like a scholar (I did not say be a scholar, I said look like a scholar - to gain self pleasing by being smarter than someone else.) You are suppose to use scripture to teach, correct, reprove, and instruct. Pay back, get even, and gaining self pleasure from attempting to be smarter than someone else is ill intent. About now you are so steamed (hot) liken to steam coming out of your ears. If you have not heard anything I have said thus far in this letter, please listen to this: I LOVE YOU! I have tried for God; I have planted and watered for God; and my hope and prayer is that eventually you receive the increase that God has for you. God wants to grow you and you have to eventually grow your inner tolerance-capacity towards challenged issues (accept scriptures that challenge your weaknesses) and not be so easily offended. Until this happens for you (stop being so easily offended which cause you to do certain actions to cope), you will go through the same process over and over again that present unadulterated-full (all) scriptures presented to you. Even if you go somewhere that is so-called a safe haven for you that does not deal with certain scriptures, do not be surprised if God in his mysterious-divine way still haunts you down. You can run but you can't hide, God wants to grow you.
I say all the above from experience. I have been you in the past (from the perspective of being someone in a fallen state.) Now, that cools it down a little for you because without me saying something fallen about myself, you will remain hot. My last attempt to illustrate pure divinity in our circumstances: Judgment is declaring a decision regarding a matter at hand. The word of God allows one to see the status of the matter (godly or not godly.) So there is a need for you to discontinue running to the excuse "Don't judge me". There is nothing wrong about illustrating to someone their need for correction (that what the word of God is for.) Again, it's the word of God that cuts and your self condemnation kicks in. Yes, people should not say things with the intent to belittle and people should acknowledge their own wrongs. I have not said things that make you uncomfortable to belittle. I have said thing that has made you uncomfortable to prayerfully bring you closer to God and I have left my fallings on the table (admitted to mine) with no excuses. The bible says, you can talk about the mote in someone's eye, just make sure you acknowledge the beam in yours before you address theirs. Again, he(God) just wants you to grow.
I'm not hurt; I'm not mad; I'm not bitter; My heart is still soft (not hard); I've only tried to be used by God to help you. OUR ISSUES WILL GO IN THE SUNSET. I'm a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, called by Christ, and I deal with issues for God. Closure is part of dealing with issues and this letter is the most effective way to communicate to those exclusive to physical interactions with me being that our relationships are not in a setting whereby we are in one building all together in the same place at the same time (if we were in a physical sanctuary setting we could address these specific issues in one building with all being together at the same time. Churches have issues and in various physical assembling settings issues are addressed.)Therefore, letter form will circulate and find you a lot faster than our physical meeting (again, you know who you are and you exist in various of places-locations.) This letter has been on my heart and I believe now is "Time to present Closure". It's not godly to leave it undone -non closure. Again, another attempt to illustrate pure divinity in the circumstance.
If you are reading this and our relationship is based off virtual only and not physical presence or hardly never physical presence then this letter does not apply to you. Again, this letter is for some not all that are in physical-presence interactions with me whereby there has been no resolution to the continuous hostility in our physical presence-interactions. However, being that this letter is not directed specifically to you (the one's virtual only), there are still lessons within it that you can learn from (we can use this as a 4/23 Norlbl, there are biblical lessons to learn from this letter.) For those virtual only, you do not see me, and I have no ideal about what you have heard about me (specifically from those in my physical presence), but yes I have somewhat hostile, unresolved issues and yes I have dealt with them based off the word of God and attempting closure.
Love you all - virtual only and physical presence. I can honestly say (and God knows this in the midst of some who may not believe it): I have been given a heart transplant by the spirit of God. I just do not carry hate in my heart no matter what I go through. So it's not about me not being liken to a pagan, it's about I just can't hate on people anymore. I do abhor evil. I do strongly dislike unclean spirits and unclean activity but I can't dislike people (to God be the glory.) So the love within me attempts closure. I understand that there will be some that will never agree with me (and never will be able to stand me just like Charles Stanley spoke about -as a general concept that happens.) However, closure hopefully brings more understanding, agreement, and peace (through the spirit of God and his holy word in this letter, see below.) I'm always praying without ceasing and now quiet (in specific circumstances.) God bless you and your families.
