Proverbs 25:28. He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Beloved, the uniform testimony of many of the saints of old was that God your loving Father is merciful, gracious and slow to anger. See the testimonies. Nehemiah 9:17. And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.Psalms 103:8. The Lord is merciful and gracious,  slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. Psalms 145:8. The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. Joel 2:13. And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Nahum 1:3. The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. Beloved, since you too have the genotype of your Father. He is a Spirit and you too via redemption you have become a spirit being. John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.  John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Beloved, like the saints of old, do you really resemble God the Father in nature? Are you gracious and slow to anger too? Receive grace to be like Him in Jesus name. To help you seriously to cultivate this gracious nature. The blessed Holy Spirit inspired the wisest king to really exhort you and secure this gracious and glorious nature for you too. Proverbs 25:28. He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. 

Beloved, the Bible several revealed thus Severally to affirm thus : Proverbs 16:32: He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Proverbs 14:29: He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. Proverbs 22:24: Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Proverbs 15:18: A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.Proverbs 19:11: The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.  Psalms 103:8: The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.. Learn and watch  them, then suddenly you too shall become weighty reproves. 1 Samuel 20:30: Then Saul’s anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion, and unto the confusion of thy mother’s nakedness? Proverbs 25:28. He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ your Lord was a mentor and a teacher, that was unique and  incomparable. He lived a gracious  exemplary  sanctified lifestyle  and taught His followers and that includes you to do same. John 17:19. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.. Because you are a true follower of Jesus, you are compelled and constrained to be like your Lord in all things. Luke 6:40. The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. See the exemplary lifestyle of your Lord. Isaiah 53:7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Matthew 27:12-14.  And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee? And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly. 1 Peter 2:22-23. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: APART FROM THIS UNIQUE EXEMPLARY LIFESTYLE , JESUS TAUGHT HIS FOLLOWERS AND THAT INCLUDES YOU TO FOLLOW HIS STEPS. Matthew 11:29-30. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. John 13:15. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Dearly beloved, our Lord never failed to inform His followers of all ages and that includes you, that, offenses of all sorts will happen and yet His followers must live a sanctified biblical Christian lifestyle . Matthew 18:7. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!  JESUS DEMONSTRATED EXEMPLARY SANCTIFIED LIFESTYLE AND ALSO TAUGHT IT. DO LIKEWISE.  Remember you are supposed to be a light that will bring glory to God continually. Matthew 5:14-16. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Apart from this, you are expected to live peaceable with all men at all times, irrespective of their attitude to you. Romans 12:18. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 1 Peter 3:10-11 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.  Ephesians 4:26. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:, Dearly beloved, how is your lifestyle? Does your lifestyle resemble the nature and teachings of Christ? Are you meek or boisterous in nature? Is your lifestyle repelling or bringing glory to Christ?  Never ever forget, this lifestyle alone guarantees  your eternal wellbeing at the end of time, so work on your conduct and attitude. Be like Christ always in thought and deed. God's grace shall be sufficient for you in Jesus name. 2 Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:  see the attached video and learn from it. 

Friend, keep on walking day after day as a wise virgin, living in readiness for the coming of your Lord. Matthew 24:44. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Luke 12:40. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. As you prepare for His coming, you must like our beloved apostle Paul, keep your body under, so that, when Christ comes, you shall not be disqualified .1 Corinthians 9:27. But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1 Thessalonians 5:23. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. But then very unfortunately, this shall never be your portion in Jesus name, some in the church shall fall a victim of  living careless lifestyle which will make them unprepared when our Lord comes.
Galatians 5:19-21. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.  Friend, for you to be eligible and you shall be in Jesus name. Then as true followers of Christ, just resemble Him in every facets of your life.  Ephesians 5:1: Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;  James 1:19: Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: Galatians 5:22-23. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. May the Lord help you to be faithful unto salvation in Jesus name.
