I am with You.

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19New King James Version

Have you ever faced a situation where it is everybody against you because you stand up for what is right?

 

I have and it is pretty scary and many times very dangerous.

I would silently pray: “My Lord comes what may I will not back down because I know what I am doing is right in Your eyes.”

Each and every time just when it seemed inevitable defeat was certain the Lord always delivered me from their wicked schemes.

 

This has occurred in many arenas. At work, on the street, in the family and in social settings and in churches where they would laugh because all the cards and power was on their side, or so they thought.

They did not expect my Loving Fathers heavy hand upon their shoulders while He protected His precious child.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my deliverer) for mightily saving Your cherished child from certain destruction at the hands of the evil one minions. I laud You in the name of He who rescued Peter when the waves were dragging Him under Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         If I say, “My foot slips,” Your mercy, O Lord, will hold me up. Psalm 94:18 New King James Version                                                                                                   

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

It Makes Sense You Know

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.  To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.2 Corinthians 2:15-16 2 Corinthians 2:15-16 New King James Version

When I lived in China they would fry tofu and it smelled like fried dog poo.  It was enough to turn the stomach (especially on a hot day). I would walk past the vendor looking at them with a look of disgust and repulsiveness.

I have received that look from many who know I am a Christian.

You know why?

It is because they know they are living an ungodly life so when they see me, it convicts them of their wickedness. I have tried to talk with them and was met with venom coming out of their mouths like a viper spitting its venom. Yes it hurts (especially when it is close family and those who used to be our friends) but just take it to Jesus and He will comfort you. Do not allow that to bother you when you experience it and you will. Jesus revealed to us that that would happen.

It only makes sense you know.

Just as the devil is repulsed by Christ, so too are those who reject Christ repulsed by those who walk with Him.

It is in our trials that we draw the closest to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I accept ridicule, scorn and disadvantage for Christ with joy and honour. Korean Christian Proverb.

On the same terms how do you think you smell to God?

The smell of a dead body is gross.

The smell of newborns has a pleasant aroma to it.

Prayer: Please Jesus Shalom (Jesus my peace) bless me with Your loving peace and strength when I encounter those who revile me because I am Your humble servant. Please heal the pain that comes from rejection from those with whom I was once close with but now look at me in disgust because I have chosen to be a child of our Heavenly Father. I know I can take this anguish to You because You experienced rejection from Your family and friends as well. I pray in anguish for this blessing in Your magnificent name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

They are from Within.

WRONG WALK

I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.  But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner not even to eat with such a person. 1 Corinthians 5:9-11 New King James Version

 

Do you see the important part of this passage?

They are talking about someone who claims to be a Christian but is living as in the world.

If we only associated with Christians how could we bring in non Christians to our divine family?

 

Now sexually immoral as includes homosexuals so any homosexual that says that Jesus loves them so they can live that filthy lifestyle and there is no where in the Bible that says they are not to live that lifestyle I will quote this passage amongst others. This will upset the politically correct but Jesus was never politically correct either. We are not to condemn them but neither ate we to accept that behaviour in our churches.

How about covetousness?

That is where you want something very much that someone else has. That leads to jealousy which leads to fights.

 

An idolater is someone who worships something or someone. Let me ask you this: do you talk about Jesus as much as you do your favourite movie, singer or TV star? Do you send as much money on Jesus as you do buying these “stars” promotion goods? The same goes for sports “stars.

A reviler is a party animal. Do you spend as much time being with Jesus as you do in the bar?

A drunkard is self explanatory.

An extortionist is someone who overcharges for their goods, at least that is one definition.

Do you see a brother who overcharges for their services?

These souls know this is ungodly behaviour and are not to be allowed to be in the company of Christians. They are like rabid dogs who can and do infect the congregation. Especially susceptible are the new believers and children.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) bless me to attempt to correct those who have gone astray in Your divine family If they choose to follow Satan rather than You please bless me to wisely, graciously and meekly disassociate myself from their company until they correct their behaviour. I humbly request this in the name of He who refused to allow any pretenders in His company Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

There is No Other Way.

DEVINE GUIDANCE

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6 New King James Version

Jesus makes no bones about it. It is His way to Heaven or your way to Hell.

You cannot have one foot in the world and one in Jesus’ way.

There is no compromise.

This means He does not accept UnChristlike behaviour.

There is no “truth is relevant” in His way.

So if you are living like this:   People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—  having a form of godliness but denying its power. 2 Timothy 3:2-5 New International Version and believe you are walking this Christian walk you are sadly and dangerously mistaken.

Now Jesus will always supply us with the means to follow the path He has chosen for us.

“God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill all His promises . . . leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) guide this sheep of Yours on His daily walk with You on my journey home. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the best Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

How Far Removed From Him Are You?

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

“Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men Isaiah 29:13New King James Version

Do you just give lip service to Christ for an hour at church?

Do you sing those songs of praise with your mouth or does it come from your heart?

How much do you live the Christian life every day?

Do you prefer to listen to the feel good preachers instead of those who teach the Word? Then how far do you think you are from Christ?

 

He desires a loving obedient relationship with Him and nothing less.

To accomplish this takes commitment to daily reading Jehovahs loving guide book of life called the Bible.  As well it takes dedication to open sincere daily prayer. Not just the whine puppy prayer of gimme, gimme, gimme but one of gratitude and one where you just enjoy being with Him.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my friend) for blessing me with the most supreme love affair their could ever be. I praise You in Your beloved name. Amen.  

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

Do You Do as They Did?

TEAMWORK

But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. Exodus 17:12New King James Version

Just as Aaron and Hur supported their leader how much do you support your pastor or leader in church activities?

 

From my experience the most abused member in any congregation is the pastor.

He and his family are expected to live holy lives which no member in the church would dare try to live.

 

Everybody goes to him with their problems but how many are wiling to listen and help the pastor or anyone in his family when they experience problems in their lives?

Their children are expected to be angels while those judging them have children that are little devils.

Trying to get a raise out of the congregation is like trying to get a tax break from the government

.

Yet, how many in the church could live of the measly salary the pastor gets?

Do you think it is easy going and sitting with a dying member?

Do you think it is easy comforting the family when you have your own problems?

Try it if you dare.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to be gracious, encouraging, comforting and a blessing to all pastors today and every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who always comforted His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

How Hasty Are You?

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

I made haste, and did not delay To keep Your commandments. Psalm 119:60 New King James Version

When you hear a sermon or read a Bible passage or any other manner in which Jehovah is speaking to you how hasty are you to obey Him?

From my experience it is best to make haste.

The longer you wait the harder it becomes and then Jehovah will give you stern warnings to obey Him.  Is there a relationship that needs reconciliation and you refuse?

It only affects other parts of your life.

Are you participating in ungodly behaviour and refuse to change?

That only draws you away from God until your relationship with Him is cold and in some cases dead. When Jehovah commands you to do something or to stop doing something it is for your good not His.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless this child to always be an attentive and obedient child of Yours because I know You are speaking to me for my own good. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                  

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

Are You Ashamed of It?

GODS GUIDEBOOK

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Romans 1:16 New King James Version

 

How often do you talk about your relationship with Christ and His message of salvation with your friends, at school or at work?

 

When you are a fancier (a fan) of something that is all you want to talk about.

 

Now I can enjoy conversations with others that is not Christ centered but if someone asks me why I am different from others I will gladly share the message of Christ with them.

 

Given the opportunity I will share Jesus’ message with them.

 

Just remember: if you are ashamed of Jesus here, then He will be ashamed of you before Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be Your voice and share Your message with those whose hearts are open to receiving Your message. I humbly request this in the name of He who so eloquently share the message when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                      

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

Are You Using Your Gifts?

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10 New King James Version

 

Just as we are each individuals so too does Jehovah bless each of us with individual gifts to use to help in the family of Christ and to us to guide others to Him.

 

To refuse to use these gifts is a sin unto God and a disgrace to the family of God.

 

Now some may be blessed with one gift and some with more than one.

 

Do not be jealous of others gifts but instead concentrate on using your gifts for Christs glory.

 

Yes we are saved by grace but once saved Jehovah has a specific job for you to do. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the gifts You have so abundantly blessed me with and the opportunities to use them. I give thanks in the name of He who used His gifts for Your glory Jesus Christ Amen.

How is the Spirit in You?

Gentle bAsain bridge across calm lagoon-crop

By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 1 John 4:13  New King James Version

 

abide: to remain stable or fixed in a state, to continue in a place Merriam Webster Dictionary

 

The only way to remain stable in your relationship with Jehovah is by the power of the Holy Spirit. In order to continue with this relationship is to be obedient to the Holy Spirit. So when He says do this or do not do that it is order to keep our relationship fixed on Jesus. We must continue our walk with Him on a daily basis.

 

If you stray from the Holy Spirits guidance you set yourself up for control by the devil. Most times that does not occur all at once. It is a slow process that happens many times without the Christian even aware of it.

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (the Lord is present) bless me to always be aware of your guidance and obedient to it so that I am blessed to stay in Your life giving place. I humbly request this in the name of He who always walked in harmony with You Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
