Refusing to accept, consider, or submit to, sums up some explanation of rejection.
A person feels rejection as not being wanted, feeling unsatisfactory, thinking their not fulfilling standard requirements.
It's a powerful word.
It can make you feel unwanted. Not good enough.
No one likes it. People fear it.
It creates feelings that lead to depression.
It cause's anxiety.
People do things they wouldn't do normally to avoid it.
It can raise it's ugly head anywhere at home, work, school even in church.
It creates feelings of sadness, jealousy, bitterness, spitefulness, anger leading to rage.
Rejection is blamed for many things sickness, crime, murder.
It cause's people to withdraw from society.
People lose their competitiveness.
Man was the first to use it here on earth.
It can be seen used for the first time in the garden of Eden.
The day Eve took her stroll in the garden, not knowing she would be the first one to lead man to the first rejection.
God had told her and Adam not to eat of a certain tree.
Eve, what could you have been thinking?
Here she has a whole garden full of every good thing imaginable to eat.
She knew the creator, she knew what God had told her because she told the serpent after he had said to her "do I understand that God told you not to eat from any tree in the garden?"
Then the Woman said to the serpent, "Not at all. We can eat from the trees in the garden. It's only about the tree in the middle of the garden that God said, "Don't eat from it; don't even touch it or you'll die.'"
Eve entered into SIN because she rejected God's command, she rejected His authority.
She rejected God's word.
Man is born with rejection.
Cain slew Abel because he thought God rejected his offering.
It created feelings of sadness in Cain which lead to feelings of jealousy, bitterness, spitefulness, anger leading to rage toward his brother.
The feeling of rejection was so overwhelming for Cain it caused enough rage to make Cain ponder to murder his brother.
God hates rejection.
God sent His Son Yeshua who was rejected.
They didnít want anything to do with the carpenters son.
The son of Mary.
They rejected the Light of the world.
The one sent into the world not to condemn but to save the world from deserved punishment of sin.
The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe.
They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!"
They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
Yeshua received the ultimate rejection.
Yeshua came to save us from being condemned.
Yeshua took our punishment.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Yeshua will be saved.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!
If you confess with your mouth, "Yeshua is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
This is the only way to eternal life!
Will you reject Yeshua?
Donít be found guilty of rejection.
Rejection of Yeshua leads to eternal damnation.
This is not taught today by most churches.
Out of fear of rejection the Gospel has been candy coated.
Itís the Blood of Yeshua!
It has always been the blood.
Without it God will reject you.
You will be forever be in a place of torment!
Please, do not leave without knowing Yeshua as your personal Lord and Savior. If you miss Yeshua, you've missed everything. ...
