Do They Hate You?

  Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for your reward in heaven is great [absolutely inexhaustible]; for their fathers used to treat the prophets in the same way. Luke 6:22-23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Since becoming a Christian do you find many in your family actually hate you?

I have, it is common. Most of them will not even talk with me anymore and cannot stand to be around me. I am not a Bible thumper and shove the Bible in their faces. Yes I will correct them when they try to get me to participate in their wickedness with Bible verses and explain to them what it means. I do not condemn them, I leave that up to the Holy Spirit. I just explain to them why I will not walk that walk with them when they are selfish, self centered, conniving, and gossiping. They walk in the world and when they see me walk in righteousness they hate me because my walk convicts them of their wickedness.

The same is said with those with whom I chummed around with. They will make spiteful remarks towards me and look for any little thing to criticize me and be judgmental towards me. They will cruelly mock ( make fun of me ) me.

As they did to Christ so too will they do unto those that belong to Christ. Joseph son of Jehovah

The thing is though that since walking in Christ there is a whole lot less stress and emptiness in my life. It is filled with Divine love, joy and peace, which is something sorely lacking in their lives. A prophet is, in its simplest form, one who speaks the Word of God to the world around them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi ( Lord my Refuge ) for blessing me with a Holy Tabernacle to take refuge in while the wicked ones are assaulting me because of my walk with You. I extol Thee in the name of He who was constantly attacked during His walk here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

See Yourself in the Book.

Jesse replied, “There is still one left, the youngest; he is tending the sheep.” 1 Samuel 16 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There was a man of the Bible in my life, his name was David.

Just as he was the runt of the litter , the youngest and not much was expected of him so too was I. Just as he both had a heart for Jehovah so did he and so have I. Just as he spent a lot of time in the wilderness so have I. Just as it was in the wilderness he was trained to lead so was I ( for me it was a teacher while for him it was a leader of a nation).

But Ruth clung to her. Ruth 1:13-15 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

There was a woman named Ruth who stayed and took care of her mother while the other wife went back to the world so have I returned home to care for my elderly disabled mother while my sibling is deeply in the world.

Now, we are not exactly alike but there are numerous similarities in these two people to resonate with in me. You see, the more you read your Bible, the more you will find yourself in it. So please do not insult me and say the Bible is irreverent in your life.

Who is there in the Bible that resembles you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for revealing unto my through Your Divine Word that You have adopted me into Your Holy family and have provided a beautiful fitting name for me. I praise You in the name of Your most beautiful Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Try as You May.

 For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all have addictions of one form or another. Try as you may you cannot conquer them. It is only when you completely surrender them unto Christ that they will be conquered.

That is good because you will use this experience as a testimony to the lost of freedom from their living Hell into the loving peace and joy that is only available unto those that belong unto Christ.

That is the blessing I have received and gladly share as testimony with others.

We are all given assignments from the Holy Spirit that is impossible for us to accomplish. It is only when we depend upon the Holy Spirits power and direction that we will succeed in these tasks.

That is good because we will use these to encourage those experiencing difficulties in their lives.

That is the blessing I have received and gladly share as testimony with others.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Tsori ( Lord my Strength ) for blessing me with the strength required to conquer my weaknesses and to fulfill Your daily assigned tasks. Thank you for the numerous opportunities to use this to share my personal testimony and by Your grace use this to guide others unto You. I exalt You in the name of He who is the Way Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Have the Same Mindset as Christ.

 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus Philippians 2:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the mindset of Christ?

Yes we are to love one another just as He loves us. We are to help each other as He helps us. We are to be patient with one another as He is patient with us. We are to forgive one another as He forgives us. We are not to allow the wicked to abuse us as He did not allow the wicked to abuse Him. We are to stand up for truth as He stood up for truth. We are to defend those weak as He defended the weak. We are to call out injustice and liars as He called out those perpetrating wicked deeds and liars.

Living the Christian life is hard but its rewards are Heavenly. Joseph son of Jehovah

Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]; Ephesians 5:1The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with showing me the proper manner in which to interact with those I encounter on a daily basis. I pray that I emulate my best friend in all my thoughts, words and deeds every day. I praise You ans ask this in Your loving wise name. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

The Lord Will Not Allow

 The Lord will not allow the righteous to hunger [God will meet all his needs], But He will reject and cast away the craving of the wicked. Proverbs 10:3The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The righteous are those that live by Jehovahs commands not the politically correct liberals so prevalent in todays society in the west. His blessing are to always meet our daily physical needs. We will always have a place to lay our heads ( although it will not be a mansion it will be comfortable. He will always supply food for our bellies ( although it will not be steak or lobster it will be nourishing and delicious ). He will always supply us with clothes on our backs ( although it will not be the latest trends it will serve its needs and look nice ). And of course, He will multiply our spiritual needs bountifully and bless us with abundant Divine love, joy and peace ( which those of the world severely lack ).

The Lord always supplies for for His children because He loves us. Joseph son of Jehovah

The wicked may seem to prosper in their evil ways but the Lords hammer of justice will come crashing down upon them and all their nefarious deeds shall be called into His Divine court of justice and their punishment shall be severe. They shall lose everything.

The ways of the wicked are hated by Jehovah and they will lose everything including their souls to eternal damnation. Joseph son of Jehovah

I have seen it work both ways and I choose to live according to Jehovahs way.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always providing for my daily spiritual and physical needs as only a loving Father like You can. Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for fulfilling Your promise to deliver Divine justice to the wicked. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus and provider Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

Your Ears Will Hear.

Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever experienced a voice telling you not to go a certain route to school or work?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Have you ever heard a voice warning you about a deal or about someone you just met?

I have.

When I listened and obeyed certain disaster was avoided. When the warning was ignored I paid the price.

Now of course there will be times the devil uses this tactic to trick you.

So how are you to avoid this snare?

For me I take it to the Lord in prayer and inform His that I am calling on Him to protect me from the wicked ones wiles and if the feeling is still strong obedience is followed. If the feeling goes away I know it is the trickster.

Another tactic is to know your Bible and refer to it when the voice comes.

There truly is nothing new under the sun, including the devils tactics. Another tactic is to contemplate why I will or will not do this. Am I doing this for selfish reasons, if so it is not from Christ but from Satan.

‘I value all things only by the price they will bring in eternity ‘” John Wesley

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your comforting, strengthening, guiding and healing wise words to encourage me and direct me upon Your most Holy path. I praise You in the name of He who followed Your path all the way to Calvary Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

This Does Not Make Sense.

 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. Psalm 31:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This does not make sense.

These are the words spoken by every Christian. I can not count the number of times my Beloved ask me to do something that made no sense.

There were the ones He asked me to go up against were more powerful than me and had all the cards stacked in their favour. Except for the winning card of course, Jehovah had that card. Yes I was terrified but obedient. When the time came for the showdown Jehovah blessed me with courage and wisdom that brought the haughty crashing down.

The first few times that happened I was in shock and awe. The more frequent it happens the stronger my faith came in Jehovah the warrior being by my side.

There were many times when I felt my Beloved asking me to make huge changes in my life that were way out of my comfort zone. Yes, I was terrified but obedient. In the end I praise Him every day for that blessing because it made me grow in trust in Him and changed me so much for the better.

Sometimes when we are called to obey, the fear does not subside and we are expected to move against the fear. One must choose to do it afraid.” Elisabeth Elliot

Yes there are many times Jehovah will ask you to do things that make no sense to you but make perfect sense to Him. Obey and watch and experience the amazing things that will happen in your life when you are obedient.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice gently speaking to me in my daily life and for blessing me with increased trust in You when You ask me to do that which I do not understand. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
