Are You Prepared to Pay the Cost?

HARRASED

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. Matthew 19:29 New King James Version Wealth comes at a cost.

 

Are you prepared to pay the cost for Heavens treasures? Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Following Christ always comes at a cost. Many times it means being rejected by your family.

 

 

That hurts, believe me I know.

 

Many times following Christ will mean sacrificing your house to travel abroad or to another city to serve in difficult circumstances.

 

I know, I sacrificed leaving the comfort of country to travel to a country where I did not know the language and lived under very difficult primitive circumstances.

 

Now this is why  I strongly do not believe in short term missions and here are the reasons why:

 

When I was teaching in China it took me six months before some students were interested in developing a relationship with Christ. Believe me they had many questions

 

If you are there only for a month or two even if they are interested who is going to teach them after you are gone?

 

 

Who is going to lay the foundation?

 

Two: If you go to a third world county and build some homes for poor people : the people do not know how to take care of them and in a year the house looks like a shanty shack, two the neighbours will become jealous which causes fights

 

Three many times they just want money or to improve their English skills. If you have an interpreter they tell the people what the government want to hear and not what you are telling them, you need to know the language and customs.

 

But your reward in return will be a crown presented to you by Christ in Heaven.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Adonai (God is sovereign) for the promised blessing of receiving a rich reward fro Your precious son upon my arrival in Heaven because of my sacrifice to You. I also thank you my love because in these trying circumstances it has brought me closer to You. I praise You in the name of He who left His father in His home to come to serve us Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Effect of Righteousness, Quietness and Assurance.

HOLY SPIRIT ENCOURAGER

The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17 New King James Version

To find peace of mind you do not need to go to self help groups or read their books or most of todays psychiatry  (although there are some circumstances where it is necessary).

You need to find the quietness that only comes from the Prince of Peace.

It is the same thing with financial or relationships, His assurance is the best insurance you need.

There is a catch though.

You must live a righteous life.

Righteous: acting in accord with divine or moral law   Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The only way to succeed in this is to pray for the knowledge, strength and support of the Holy Spirit.

Then to be obedient to His will not yours.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.” — Holmes

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength to lead a righteous life every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is our example of righteousness Jesus Christ. Amen.

Proof of Jehovahs Hand in Creation

God  give us

From the four quarters of the earth. Isaiah 11:12 New International Version

The next time anyone says that the compass is a modern invention why not quote this verse to them?

He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. Isaiah 40:22 New International Version                                                                                

The next time anyone comments that it was not until recently that the world was considered round why not quote this verse to them?

This is also good for the evolutionists.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Elohim (God the Creator) for providing us with solid prove You were, are and always will be the Devine Creator to dispel the lies of the wicked ones to try to deny You. I humbly praise You in the name of He who was there to create these works Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Gives Us Power

THE DIVINE LIONS STRENGTH

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 New International Version

I was a biological alcoholic and tried everything from herbal medicine, hypnosis, diet and counseling to conquer this terrible disease. It was not until I fell on my knees and cried out to the Lord to rescue His child that it was conquered. It was not me that conquered it, it was the Holy Spirit.

It was not me but the Holy Spirit that blessed me with teaching me and strengthening me in how to develop a loving relationship with our Beloved and because of this become even more loving to others.

 

I would be terrible at starting projects and then abandoning them (usually because I believed I was a failure). It was the Holy Spirit that taught me and strengthened me to complete assignments Jesus had instructed me to do.

This is not a one off event.

This process must be repeated every day in every aspect of our lives.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Elohim (Holy Spirit our Creator) for Your amazing patience with this difficult student to create in me the child that Jehovah knew I was meant to be and for freeing me from the addictive chains that were dragging me into a living hell. I praise You in the name of He who You strengthened in His time of need before going to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen.

Which Level Will You Be At?

CANNOT OUTRUN

“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.  But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.  And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.  But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.” Matthew 11:21-24 New King James Version

This is a clear statement by Christ that there are different levels of Hell.

If you have ever read The Apocalypse of Peter and the Book of Enoch you will see what awaits those who are cast into Hell.

Another good read is SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD, The Eternity of Hell Torments by Jonathan Edwards  and Hell  By D. L. Mood

It only makes sense.

Why would someone who just stole candy from a store serve the same sentence as someone who robbed a bank and killed someone?

Make no mistake about it, Hell is real and it is not a very nice place to go to. Once in there, there is no getting out and it is for an eternity.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the right words to convey to others the importance of being obedient children of Yours so as to avoid Your terrible wrath and be cast into Hell. In the name of my loving King who is the Supreme judge Jesus Christ I humbly beseech You. Amen.

The Fools Rejection.

ARROGANCE

As you come to him, the living Stone rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him 1 Peter 2:4 New International Version

fool a person who lacks good sense or judgment : a stupid or silly person Merriam Webster dictionary

 

Only a fool would reject an amazing life with Christ so do not be surprised when non-Christians reject you.

 

But do not allow it to upset you when they mock you, reject you and harass you. Just remember that you are precious to Jehovah.

And do not forget, as they rejected Jesus so too will they reject you.

The only thing you can do is sow the seed and then walk away.

They Holy Spirit will convict them.

If they refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit, they will not listen to you either.

A skeptic is a person who, when he sees the handwriting on the wall, claims it is a forgery. Morris Bender

Prayer: Please Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) bless me with Your divine peace when others reject my invitation to become a member of Your holy family and please bless them with peace that can only be gained by becoming a member of Your divine family. I earnestly request this in the name of the prince of peace Jesus Christ. Amen.

Have Overtaken Me.

HE AND HIS ANGELS ARE THERE

Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights. Psalm 119:143 New King James Version

It ain’t easy being a Christian.

You are going against the tide.

As such you can expect to experience a lot of ridicule, prejustice, and hostility including from your own family.

 

When I was in China many Chinese who became Christians were completely cut off from their families. If they went back home they were ridiculed, ostracized and even suffered violence by their own families. At school and work no one will even talk with them and they are constantly ridiculed. They had truly given up everything for Christ.

 

I wonder how many Christians in the west would suffer like that?

When you become a Christian Satan is not going to celebrate he is going to attack and the closer you get to Christ the more the attacks and the more severe they are. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) for blessing me with Your divine strength, peace and wisdom to withstand the attack that satan throws at me and for the most delightful experience of helping me be an obedient child to the One who loves me with a divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed me Your most beautiful love Jesus Christ Amen.
