Should you hold on, or should you let go?

Lately, visiting my newsfeed on Facebook becomes a mental burden. With the rise of people pretending to be prophets and 'true holy ones' came virtual chaos: supporters and non-supporters of our messenger Ophirian Heritage Conservatory, including yours truly, engage in word wars. One posts, another comments, and it results in a toxic comments section with an unresolved issue. Furthermore, the heated exchange of ideas left some of the people heartbroken, because they probably could not convince the people who turned away to return to the flock.

Some things are really out of our hand. And this is when we must learn to let go and leave everything in the hands of our Creator. We were not made to win a religious debate; we were made to worship the Elohim. We were not commissioned to make fun of those who are confused by the truth; we were commissioned to spread the true Name of our Father and His Son. Abba Yahawah will give Messiah Yahawashi the sheep to call if that's what He wills to do. So it is high time to focus on our purpose and our mission, while letting our Father do what He does.

Besides, it is worthless to argue with people who seem wise in their own opinion.Proverbs 26:4-5 says, "Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes."  If we continue to explain and explain to people who refuse to be corrected, we become stupid ourselves for doing so. That's a harsh truth that even I have to accept. However much we love our brother or sister who decided to leave the flock, we cannot do something about it. It's for Abba Yahawah to take care of and for us to pray for.

The best thing to do is to consider [Yahawah] in all our ways [even for matters that concern posting or commenting on social media] so that He will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:6). When we ask ourselves, "Is this what He wants? Is this what He wills for me to do? Will He be pleased by my thoughts or my words or my actions?" - the lesser the tendency that we misrepresent our Creator. The effectivity of us sending His message doesn't lie on whether we can win an argument or not, or whether we can publicly point out the flaw of the person or not. The effectivity of us sending His message can be determined through our thoughts, words, and actions. If people could sense a change which is impacted by the Elohim that we are preaching about, then probably, they will believe.
And even if they don't, may we continue to trust that the Elohim knows what He is doing. Everything will be alright.
