#10 Oppressing others. Anyone that does this act, does not fear God Almighty
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.1 John 4:8, King James Version
It is an evil thing to be cruel and to have someone in a position be demoralized. Who are you that others should mind you? Hashem is the only God. All glory, honor, and power belong to Him!
The Creator God has His creation, especially those who are made in His image, to show forth love to your fellow neighbor (family and friends as well).
Oppression is a controlling principle sent forth by Satan to steal, kill, and destroy. It will have you turned away from God’s commandments and live in an atmosphere of fear. Think about it! By what standards do you live?
The Word of God tells us in Leviticus 25:17 to not oppress others, let’s read it: “Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the Lord your God.”
How can you show forth your reasonable service unto God? Loving your neighbor will show your fear of God, and you will not take advantage of anyone. To wrong others have no acceptable aspect of worshipping God. There are many helpful suggestions found in the bible to renew your mind in righteousness: “and no one should ever violate or exploit his brother in this regard, because the Lord will avenge all such acts, as we have already told you and solemnly warned you (1 Thessalonians 4:6).
If you make a sale to your neighbor or a purchase from him, you must not take advantage of each other (Leviticus 25:14). Whoever oppresses the poor taunts their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors Him (Proverbs 14:31). Do not rob a poor man because he is poor, and do not crush the afflicted at the gate, (Proverbs 22:22) For if you really correct your ways and deeds, if you act justly toward one another, (Jeremiah 7:5)if you no longer oppress the foreigner and the fatherless and the widow, and if you no longer shed innocent blood in this place or follow other gods to your own harm, (Jeremiah 7:6)”
Self-deception has many believing that they are in control of their lives. Sorry to tell you, there are only two ways to live on this earth: to be in the kingdom of God or the kingdom of Satan. The choice is yours. Hopefully, you are a child of God; who has the desire to worship in spirit and in truth.
Anyone that oppresses others doesn’t know what real love is: for Hashem (God) is Love. And, your obedience to this simple principle is required of thee. Love yourself, love your neighbor.
