Biblical Purpose of Prayer is That

“We look upon prayer simply as a means of getting things for ourselves, but the biblical purpose of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.” Oswald Chambers


Will You Dare to Hang on the Monkey Bars?

“Greater love has no one than this that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 New International Version

Have you ever wondered what Jesus felt like while He was hanging on the cross?

I tried hanging on a set of monkey bars with my feet suspended. Did it ever hurt after just a few minutes.

Will you dare to hang on the monkey bars to experience what Jesus endured for you?

Just think, Jesus hung like that on a cross because He loves us for six hours.

It does not matter what you did in your past. It does not matter how bad you were. It does not matter if you are young or old. It does not matter if you are rich or poor. It does not matter your nationality.

Jesus loves us all so much He suffered that most horrible death so that we can enjoy the most loving relationship with our God in Heaven.

“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” Anna Bartlett Warner

Prayer: Thank you our beloved Jesus for the tremendous sacrifice you paid so that we have the privilege of enjoying the most wonderful love affair there ever was, is or will be. I give thanks in Your treasured name. Amen.

He Will Give so You Can Give.

I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. Genesis 12:2 New International Version.

What does God bless us with?

God gives us a loving heart so that we will bless others with love. The more you give your love to others, the more God will give His love to you.

Talk about a win, win situation ey?

Now what does it mean that your name will be great?

It does not mean you will be a superstar here on earth.

It means that your name will be great in heaven.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 New International Version.

Just as Jesus has shared His love with us, so too are we to share our love with others. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the wonderful blessing of Your treasured love. Thank you my beloved for the opportunities to share this divine love with others. I give thanks for this cherished gift in the name of He who loved us first Jesus Christ. Amen

Many of Today’s Christians are Not

“One great concern I have is that many of today’s Christians are not taking the Word of God seriously. For whatever reason, the Scriptures do not have authority in the Christian’s life in the way that is necessary for him or her to live a life to the glory of God.” A. W. Tozer

Like to be Surrounded By

From my experience most men and women like to be surrounded by noise to drown out the soft convicting whisper of The Holy Spirit. When the Spirit is exhausted then comes judgment. It is always fast and harsh. Even then, the wicked will not repent. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Do You Use Them as a Punching Bag?

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

Think of a boxer practising using a punching bag.

Is that the way you behave to those in your church?

Instead of fists in a punching bag you use your words to hit at their heart. You look for anything to criticize someone. Their hair is too long, they have a scruffy beard, their talk is stupid, they are slow thinker, and the list does go on and on.

If someone is a new member of your church and you behave in this manner do you think they will want to return to your church?

That is exactly what has happened to myself and others I have talked about it with all too frequently. What if someone brought unbeliever to church who was interested in becoming a Christian, do you think your condemning behavior will encourage them to want to become a Christian?

I have felt ashamed when I brought an unbeliever that was interested in learning about Jesus to church and they saw this behavior. They looked at me and said: “I thought you Christians were supposed to be loving? If that is what you call loving I am not interested. They would not listen after that.

What do you think Jesus will say to these wolves on judgment day?

How do you think Jesus feels when he sees and hears this disgusting behavior?

Jesus Christ is the judge, not you.

You say you do not do this. Good for you.
However, when you see one of these wolves attack someone in your church do you just stand by and say nothing?

Doesn’t that encourage their destructive behavior?

It is your duty to confront them and demand they stop this abusive behavior or do not come to this church. It is the duty of every church member to stand strong on this. Oh you will lose a few members but that is getting rid of the weeds that choke the righteous plants. Then people will feel comfortable in your church and your church will be full.

When I was a teacher in another country sometimes there would be naughty children in class that refused to behave. They were given warnings. If they refused to behave I would physically throw them out of class. My classes were always full and many students were turned away because the class was full. Both the children and parents loved and respected me.

You want to see a Christ centered Church?

Then get rid of the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Prayer: Please Jehovah bless me with the strength and wisdom of Nathan when he confronted David to confront these wolves when they attack Your precious lambs. I ask in Your son Jesus Christ’s mighty name. Amen. May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

He is My

I find being in harmony with Jehovah and Jesus second nature.

Now The Holy Spirit is different.

He is my mentor and so many times it is difficult to obey Him.

I love Him and respect Him but sometimes it is so difficult to be obedient to Him .Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

The Lord is Close To

The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145: 18 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

You need the be the first before you will receive the second.

If you wish for Jehovah to be near you , you must first be honest with Him.

You cannot con deceive nor manipulate Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

That is Why I

What or whom we worship determines our behavior.

That is why I worship Jesus, because of His love for me I worship Him.

Because of this I live a righteous life.

Because of this stress is replaced with peace.

Selfishness and bitterness is replaced with love. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
