+Envy and Malice 8-12

[08:00~]
  One writer explains "envy"in this way, I think it's well worth quoting;
'Envy is the greatest disease of our age. It is often confused with jealousy and
covetousness which have to do with wanting the possessions and priviledges
of others. Envy is much more insidious and deadly.
  Envy is the feeling that someone else's having something is to the blame for
the fact that you do not have it. The principle motive is thus not so much to
take as to destroy. The envy-er acts against the object of his envy not to
benefit himself, but to cut the other person down to his own level or below.
  The American Puritan Divine Samuel (Willer) defined the "envy" as Quote "A
man's repining as neighbour's prosperity, looking upon himself to be hurt by it."
  And that is a very accurate understanding of this vile emotion.
  Consider with me just a few examples of envy as recorded in the Scriptures,
and its relationship with "malice."
Turn with me, if you will, to Genesis Chapter 26. In Genesis 26 & beginning at
verse 12. We learn about the prosperity. Genesis Chapter 26 and verse 12, to
the prosperity of Issac. & readingfrom Genesis 26 verses 12 to 15:

"12 Now Issac sowed in that land, and reaped(received) in the
same year a
(an) hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.
13  And the man became rich
(waxed great), and continued to
grow richer
(went forward, and grew) until he became very weal-
thy
(great):
14  For he had posessions (possession) of flocks, and
(possession
of) herds, and great household (store of servants): so that (and)
the Philistines envied him.
15  Now
(For) all the wells which his father's servants had dug
(digged) in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines stop-
ped up by filling
(had stopped them, and filled) them with earth. "
[( )= King James Version(1908)]

  And so here with people who looked upon the singular blessing of Issac,
and could not live with his success. His success seemed to be a mirror that
showed them their lack of success. And here we see again that "envy" was
related to "malice". Somebody decided that '...because he has enjoyed all
of the success, it is our duty to bring him down. It is our duty to see to it
that he has bad days. He's getting enough good days. He needs some bad
days. And so we're going to fill in the wells, so that we can be sure he's got
some bad days. '
  "Envy" is always related to a malicious attempt to do harm to people. And
whenever you find malice, you can usually look for the seed of envy in the
heart of a malicious individual.
  If you look with me at the Book of Esther; as you find in the previous book
of Job; Esther and Job... Esther Chapter 5 and beginning at verse 9. Again,
"envy" is relted to "malice." Malice growing out of envy. 


+Envy and Malice 12-14
Esther 5: 9 through 13:
"9  And Haman went out (Then went Haman forth) that day
glad and pleased
(joyful and with a glad) heart: but when Haman
saw Mordecai in the king's gate, that he did not stand
(stood
not up)
, or trembled before (nor moved for) him, Haman (he) was
filled with anger
(full of indignation) against Mordecai.
10  
(Nevertheless) Haman controlled (refrained) himself: however,
(he) went to his house (and when he came home), and(he) sent
(and called) for his friends, and his wife Zeresh (his wife).
11  And Haman recounted to
(told) them (of) the glory of his
riches, and the numbers of his sons
(multitude of his children), and
every instiance
(all the things) wherein the king had magnified
(promised) him, and how he had promoted (advanced) him above
the princes and servants of the king.
12  Haman also said
(said moreover, Yea,) even Esther the queen
(did)let no one but me (man) come with the king to (unto) the
banquet which
(that)she had prepared tomorrow also(but himself;
and to morrow)
I'm (am I) invited unto her (also) with the king.
13  Yet all of this
(this) does not satisfy (availeth) me (nothing),
every time
(so long as) I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's
gate. "
[ ( )= King James Version(1908)]

  Here he is with the immense wealth, immense prestige, but when he sees his
enemy sitting in the preferencial place, and he envies him; he envies that
position,  and he determines with malice (that filled his) thought that he is going
to bring his enemy down. Envy filles his heart.

 In First Peter Chapter 2, verses 1 and 2, the Apostle Peter draws the relation-
ship between envy and malice, and we do well to take this to heart. 1st Peter
Chapter 2, verses 1 & 2:

"1 Therefore putting (Wherefore laying) aside all malice, and all
deceit
(guile), and hypocricy (hypocricies), and envy (envies), and
slander
(all evil speakings),
2  Like
(As) newborn babes, long for (desire) the pure (sincere)
milk of the word, so that by it
(that) you (ye) may grow in
respect to salvation thereby:
3  If you
(so be ye) have tasted the kindness of (that) the LORD
(is gracious)."
[ ( )= King James Version(1908)]

"Ghost Soldiers"


[16:00~]
...even in the midst of the apparent unexplainedness of Japanese barbarity, just
no rhyme or reason to it, the "capriciousness" would be the word, of Japanese
barbarity as to "why " they would "(bind up) this man", or "behead this man", as
they were walking along. "Kept Inside" reports that in the midst of all the capri-
ciousness of the war,
not seen in any rhyme or reason for these atrocities, that there was ONE
particular observable thing that could be seen. And that is that the man that
came in for the worst treatment were all TALL MEN. If you were a man above
an average height that diminutive Japanese would single you out.
So all of you tall men here I looked out when you were singing the hymns, and
I said, "yes, John Carter, he'd be tossed." "Peter McClausky, he would be gone,"
"Gordon forget it, you wouldn't last a mile!" (laughters) The tall men would be
singled out. When I got to the page I pondered that and said, 'What's the
reason for this?' 'Do you not think it's reasonable to think of one word, "envy" ?'
"Envy" leading to "malice".
'He's a big man! I'll show him who is in charge!'
Envy always is related to malice.
This is what the envy is. Envy is always linked to it.
One writer put it this way, 'Envy is so more unlikely to be modified by seeing
others deprived to some advantage than by getting it to themselves. It's not
what "they lack" that treacly troubles had done, but what "others have".
The envious are not satisfied by the equality; they secretly yearn for superiority
 and revenge.
And this is why we must never allow within our hearts this evil thing to reside.
I call upon you young people, Do not become envious of other young people
who may be better looking than you are, smarter than you are, of more
affluent families than you have! If you allow this kind of sin to develop within
your heart, do not be surprised that soon in its train will come malicious
thoughts to those other people. And they do not deserve that kind of
treatments. "Envy" is a terrible thing to allow within our hearts.
[19:46~]

―可なり執拗な『成り済まし』被害に遭って来ています。どうか、私と名乗る者やそうと臭わせる『変な』通信があった場合は、精密なご調査をお願いいたします。―
 『逆カルチャーショック/Reverse Culture Shock』(=正式名)に重ねられて始まった、
CoIntelPro等とも呼ばれるこの「集団・組織的ストーカー」等への対策用にBLOGを始めました。
 帰国後、家に辿り付いて以来、北海道から一際出ていません。 私自身は一切『街宣』等に参加した事は御座いません。 街宣での自己紹介の中で、私のブログの事では?と連想させるような説明を取り入れることで、まるでその人物が私ではないか、と思い込ませ人違いを促す『成り済まし(風)』にご注意下さい。
 成り済ましが、私の肖像を盗んでやっていた可能性があります。ご注意ください。以前出した事のある子どもの頃の写真を再度以下に貼っておきます。そこにあるのは私の大切な両親ですので、この写真を自分だと偽るために盗用したとすれば、私の大切な両親までをも、自分のだと偽ったことになり、許し難いです。
 太かった事は一度もないです。細くもなく、筋肉質でもありませんが、これらが良い悪い、と言っているのではなく、成り済ましと取り違えられて居たくないため、明確にしています。背は小さいです(が、何故か昔から長身なような印象を持たれがちらしいです)。髪は13―4年、後ろで束ねた長髪で,常に(40年間)前髪があります。
 私は一人っ子です。A型でもB型でもありません。両親は科学者で、ビジネスにも関係なく、また、一切の宗教やましてやカルト・新興宗教とは関連を持っておりません。
私自身が12歳でいきなりキリスト教信仰を持ちました。

成り済ましがこのブログを自分のものだと言っている可能性があったので、ここまで公開致します。

[注意]:
大変残念ながら教会には通っていません。また道や人の家への訪問伝道や勧誘は、私の信ずるところと少し意味が違うので、しているのであれば、それはこのブログ主である私ではありません。万が一そのようなものが居り、私のブログを自分のものででもあるかのように言う者が居ましたら、この部分を読ませ、追求しておいてください。ご注意下さい。私に知らせて下さり、少なくとも警察にもご通報お願い致します。
  人が伝道することを批判しているのではなく、しているのは私ではありませんので、騙されないようにして頂きたいと思い書いて居ます。
