I am More Afraid Of.

                                          

Their eye bulges from fatness [they have more than the heart desires]; The imaginations of their mind run riot [with foolishness]. Psalm 73:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

In each of us dwells the flesh.

We need the assistance of the Holy Spirit to keep it under control.

There is no one who ever goes a day without sinful thoughts.

How many men (married or single) do not look at a woman with lust?

How many women do not have envy in their hearts for those who are not more beautiful than they or have a better outfit than them?

The list is endless.

It is when we dwell upon fleshly desires that they take root and the root desires the thought to take action.

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to make us aware of these thoughts and how wrong they are. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts away from the world and towards Christ.

I am more afraid of my own heart than of the pope and all his cardinals. I have within me the great pope, Self.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) for blessing me that You guard my heart diligently and protect me from myself for I am weak and simple minded compared to Your magnificent wisdom. I exalt Thee in the name of the strongest of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Everyone May Learn From

 “Nevertheless the righteous will hold to his ways, And he who has clean hands will grow stronger and stronger. Job 17:9 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We all put our mouths in action before our brains from time to time. We say things impulsively that are deeply regretted later.

I have certainly done it numerous times.

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to guard our mouths and indeed clamp them shut many times to keep us out of trouble. He has done that for me numerous times to my deep gratitude.

We all play the victim when trials and tribulations occur and take it out on God: “If you love me why are you allowing this to happen to me”

I have cried that too many times to count. In retrospect however I see that the greatest lessons in life are learned from trials and tribulations. They help us grow the most and helps us to endure then with confidence and even expectation on what Jehovah is doing through these events.

And, you can bet He is doing it for a reason.

Those speak foolishly who ascribe their anger or their impatience to such as offend them or to tribulation. Tribulation does not make people impatient, but proves that they are impatient. So everyone may learn from tribulation how his heart is constituted.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God my teacher) for teaching me through my numerous tribulations and moulding me from them into the beautiful child You desire me to be. 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.

Keep the Ground Clear Of.

                                      

Teach me Your way, O Lord, And lead me on a level path. Psalm 27:11 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We need the Holy spirit to teach us daily the difference between good and evil.

Do not foolishly be conned into believing that just because you have been reading the Holy Bible for decades that there is nothing more it can teach you.

We need it to convict us when the seeds of evil slowly creep in without our noticing it.

Have you ever seen a dandelion seed?

It is so tiny but when it takes root it is almost impossible to get rid of. So too it can be with sin.

We must in prayer and devoting ourselves to daily Bible reading keep the weeds from taking hold of the garden in our hearts. Just as it takes a lot of work to keep the flower garden clean so too does it take a lot of work to keep our hearts clean. We do that in conjunction with the Holy Spirit. Without Him all is lost.

“Unless we know the difference between flowers and weeds, we are not fit to take care of a garden. It is not enough to have truth planted in our minds. We must learn and labor to keep the ground clear of thorns and briars, follies and perversities, which have a wicked propensity to choke the word of life.” — Clyde Francis Lytle

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for blessing me with Your constant weeding in the garden of my heart to keep out the destructive weeds while nurturing Your Divine love in the flowers You have planted with in. I extol Thee in the name of the most awesome Gardener Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Curse Upon Nations.

                                                                                                                    

I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk [that is, to live each and every day] in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments (precepts), so that you will live and multiply, and that the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you will not hear and obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you will certainly perish. Deuteronomy 30:16-18 Holy Bible Amplified Version         

I see it in every nation, folks have turned their backs on Jehovah and even mock Him. They do so at their own peril.                                 

If you look at the dirty thirties the roaring twenties preceded it.        

In the roaring twenties it was anything goes (except worshiping Jehovah of course). Yes there was a lot of drinking but there was also a lot of premarital sex,worshiping the occult, and crime. It was an eat drink and be merry attitude.                                                               

I firmly believe that is why the dirty thirties was a curse upon nations. The roaring twenties pale in comparison to the wickedness which premetes every society today. As such the disaster which is but a breath away shall come like a world wide explosion like a exploding volcano which destroys everything in its path.                                                    

 “And what greater calamity can fall upon a nation than the loss of worship.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) bless me with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and strength to educate the lost in the  around me so as to bring them into Your Holy community. I truly mourn over the destructive path they are walking in and desire them to change direction into Your Holy Path. I ask this in the name of the guiding light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Let a Man Meet A.

Let a man meet a[ferocious] bear robbed of her cubs Rather than the [angry, narcissistic] fool in his folly. Proverbs 17:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version                                                           

Folly is described as: the state or quality of being foolish; lack of understanding or sense, a foolish action, practice and a costly and foolish undertaking. Another word for foolish is stupid.

A narcissist is described as  tending to derive gratification from admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes.

Speaking from personal experience a narcissist does not love anybody or anything as much as they love themselves. They are always bragging about themselves and thrive on being the constant center of attention. They are very shallow and easily offended. When offended they become very cruel and constantly imagine the wicked manner in which the offender will pay with shame and humiliation. They take it to the extreme.

Beware of them.

Yes they can be dangerous, although most times they are not.

They have no sympathy for their victims and delight in watching them suffer. Whenever I encounter one and they share with me their wicked schemes I merely point out to them the folly of it in the consequences they will suffer far outweigh the satisfaction they will receive and I will have no part of it.

If I am the one they intend upon inflicting with their foolish perverted revenge I explain to them  with confidence and strength that there is a God in Heaven and He passes sentence that the wicked shall be punished seven times seven for their wickedness.

It shocks them. It is a coin toss how they will react.

Sometimes they will stay away in fear and sometimes they foolishly pursue their evil schemes. Yes sometimes they succeed but in the end it costs them far more than they gain when they suffer Jehovahs harsh mighty hand of justice.

Narcissist’s pretend to be strong but really are weak, stand up to them or they will bully you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be by your side and no narcissist can stand up to Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi  (The Lord is my Refuge) for blessing me with the refuge of Your words and guidance to deal properly with all the narcissist’s that enter my life. I exalt You in the name of He who dealt harshest of all with these plagues upon society Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

His Favorite Abiding Place Is.

My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him.John 14:23 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as the atoning sacrifice the Holy Spirit comes and dwells within our hearts. He is there to comfort us, teach us, guide us, encourage us, strengthen us, calm us, assure us and correct us.They are a constant presence which will never depart from us.

When we are in communion with the trinity they come and bless us with their amazing Divine love within our hears. There is nothing to compare to this amazing experience and it is ours to lay claim to for eternity when we enter Heavens gate.

He takes great delight in dwelling in each of His childrens hearts

“Our Father dwells in tents as well as in temples, but His favorite abiding place is in the hearts of mankind.” J. Fred Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your constant presence in my daily life. I need Your Divine guidance, protection and love every day. But, most of all my Love, I treasure our  daily communion as the greatest blessing of all. I thank you in the name of my most cherished best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They Begin to Grow. 

You, therefore, will be perfect growing into spiritual maturity both in mind and character, actively integrating godly values into your daily life. Matthew 5:48 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Growing into spiritual maturity and character and integrating godly values into our lives is an act of worship towards our Heavenly Beloved.

We submit unto His molding us into the children He desires us to be because we trust Him and love Him, which is an act of worship. Because we love Him we desire to be the children He wishes us to be which is another act of worship.

If there is no worship there is no desire to grow or to continue to grow.

There are times when growth is easy but it is in the times when growth is difficult that we show our trust and submissiveness unto Him that that is an act of worship which please Christ.

“It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow.”  Calvin Coolidge                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kabodhi ( The Lord my Glory ) for growing into the child You desire me to be through my worshiping You the greatest super star of all. I exalt Thee in the name of my best friend whom I adore Jesus Christ. Amen

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