I will Look in Triumph

CHRISTS POWER

 People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.

After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.

They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.

When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.

Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.

Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.

From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.

Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green

We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.

As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;

Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen

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

He Will Save You.

HAVE COURAGE

 Say to those with an anxious and panic-stricken heart, “Be strong, fear not! He will save you.” Isaiah 35:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Anxious is described as feeling or showing uncomfortable feelings of uncertainty.

We have all experienced anxiousness in our lives.

The difference between Christians and those of the world is that they have no where to turn to to provide them with concrete assurances that those they go to for help are in control and to fill them with peace.

We as Christians have the confidence in Jehovah who controls everything.

When we are obedient unto His guidance He will sooth out fears, comfort us and guide us to the best path to take out of the dark forest of uncertainty that envelopes us in whatever the circumstance is that is causing us apprehension.

Panic is defined as the emotion experienced in the presence or threat of danger.

Again those who are of the world panic when disaster is looming or is striking them. Those of us who belong unto Christ have His assurance that He will either walk through the fire with us like He did with  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego.

He answered, “Look! I see four men untied, walking around in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt! And the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”  Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing furnace and said, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out [of there]! Come here!” Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the midst of the fire. The satraps, the prefects, the governors and the king’s counselors gathered around them and saw that in regard to these men the fire had no effect on their bodies — their hair was not singed, their clothes were not scorched or damaged, even the smell of smoke was not on them Daniel 3:25-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Or , He will deliver us from the storm like He did His disciples.

But as they were sailing, He fell asleep. And a fierce gale of wind swept down [ as if through a wind tunnel ] on the lake, and they began to be swamped, and were in great danger. 24 They came to Jesus and woke Him, saying, “Master, Master, we are about to die!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging, violent waves, and they ceased, and it became calm [a perfect peacefulness]. Luke 8:23-25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Those were real events Christian and are available unto You Jehovahs cherished child when you , in faith , call out unto Him.

I know , I have been through many furnaces and raging storms with Him in our walk towards the Heavenly home He has prepared for me.

“Knowing that I am not the one in control gives great encouragement. Knowing the One who is in control is everything.” — Alexander Michael

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being there with me through my numerous trials and tribulations , sorrows and snares . Through all my pain and hardships . I could not have made it without Your comforting , reassuring and strengthening presence. I exalt You in the name of He who calmed the stroms of His disciples storms Jesus Christ . Amen

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

Once Forgiven , Always Forgiven.

his-mercy

 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Even though you have become a Christian do you still beat yourself up over the wicked lifestyle that you participated in before you came to Christ?

Why?

Have you repented of them ( Repent means admitting what you did was wrong – especially to those you have wronged if possible . Then apologizing for it. After that you must ask for forgiveness. ) . Then stop beating yourself up.

Jesus’ motto is ; ‘ Once forgiven , always forgiven. “

So , if Jesus does not beat you up why would you waste your time doing it?

There is no sin that cannot be forgiven when you repent. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“Blessed [forgiven, refreshed by God’s grace] are those who mourn [over their sins and repent], for they will be comforted [when the burden of sin is lifted]. Matthew 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes even though Jehovah has forgiven your sins , you must still pay retribution to those whom you have wronged. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Sometimes even though you have repented you must still pay retribution for your sins to society . So for example , say you got drunk , got in an accident and crippled someone , you must still pay retribution to those you have injured and justifiably do prison time.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for sanctifying me ( which means making you holy ) through the horrifying bloody sacrifice of Your most beloved son Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for this unwarranted gift and worship You in whose blood my filthy sins were cleansed Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He is There.

HE GIVES PEACE

 

 

Turn to me [ Lord ] and be gracious to me, For I am alone and afflicted. Psalm 25:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever moved into an apartment by yourself ?

I have.

The first night the apartment seemed so big , even though it was small , dark and lonely. I prayed unto Jehovah , took out my Bible and read His reassuring words that said He is there. It was quite comforting , reassuring and blessed me with a good nights sleep.

The same thing happens to widows and widowers when their life long soul mate passes on to the other side. The loneliness is overpowering. Those who take solace in Jehovahs loving arms find peace , comfort and strength.

Have you ever moved to a different community , or to a country where they do not speak your language , have different customs and you know no one ?

I have.

It seemed so overwhelming ,scary and lonely ( indeed there were a few circumstances where there was no newspapers , radio stations or TV in my native language { this was before they had the internet } ). Boy were those some rough times. Throughout it all there was constant prayer and Jehovah blessed me with strength , courage , peace and reassurance that not only got me through it but helped me thrive in it. He kept on assuring me that He was there.

Precious child of Jehovah , whenever you feel alone and dejected take it to our Father in Heaven who loves you and cares about you so very much. Have your Bible close by. He will sometimes just envelope you in His Divine love and peace . Sometimes He will guide you to Bible Verses which will comfort , reassure , strengthen you and fill you with His love , peace , security and strength to see it through.

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for blessing me with Your abounding love and assurance when it seems like such a cold dark world. I praise You in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Who Has the Greatest Authority?

I TRUST GOD


 I sought the Lord [on the authority of His word], and He answered me. Psalm 34:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who has the greatest authority ?

When you need answers to lifes problems who do you think has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) : Jehovah or a psychiatrist ? Jehovah is all wise while the psychiatrist is based upon human wisdom which is faulty. Therefore, which one do you think is the best choice to go to when you have problems ( now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred therapists and or help groups.

When you need financial advice who do you believe has the greatest authority ( wisdom ) Jehovah who is concerned about your welfare or a financial advisor who is concerned about his commission and the financial institutional profits he works for ? Now Jehovah may guide you to Bible centred financial advisors.

Therefore when you encounter any and all problems in life should you not seek out the greatest authority ( wisdom ) and of course that is Jehovah hands down every time. When you ask , you must ask in faith and be prepared to obey His guidance or else why waste your time and His ?

You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him. –A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for Your Divine intercession with Your ultimate wisdom , strength and providence to bring resolution to all my problems. I exalt You in the name of He who taught His disciples amazingly Jesus Christ . Amen

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

We Are at War.

HAVE COURAGE

For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Make no mistake about it Christian, we are at war. Our enemy is stronger than we are, smarter than we are and more numerous that we are.

All is lost then, you say.

No, we have complete victory in our grasp every time the enemy attacks. Our weapons are few but guaranteed to defeat the foe every time.

Number one: when the evil one or his minions come with a direct attack our Heavenly Father sends in reinforcements.

For He will command His angels in regard to you, To protect and defend and guard you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. Psalm 91:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Who do you think will win that battle?

He and his goonies are far smarter the we but we have a weapon to defeat them every time. Do not believe you battle them and win for then defeat is certain.

It is a wise man that trusts Jehovah, it is a foolish man that depends upon himself. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let these qualities define you]; Bind them [securely] around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 3:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Know your Bible, eat its words, carry it with you, write down victory verses and be prepared to use them. Then satan and his goons will flee from you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The Lord is near to all who call on Him, To all who call on Him in truth (without guile). Psalm 145:18 Amplified Bible

Satan will work on your conscience and try to convict you of pass sins.

Do not listen to him but instead listen to our Heavenly Father.

Thanks be it is by Christs blood when we repent that we are acquitted of our sins. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [as conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Satan will try to defeat us with soul and spiritual destructive habits. Clasp solidly unto Christs power to defeat this weakling.

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Holy Bible Amplified Bible

“We’re in spiritual combat – cosmic combat for the heart and soul of humankind.” — Chuck Colson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Gador Milchamah ( The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for blessing me with Your Heavenly protection whenever I am being attacked by demonic forces. Thank you for providing with Your Divine word to defeat the demons when they come for battle. I praise You in the name of the King of the Heavenly armies Jesus Christ . Amen

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

When I am Afraid

HE LEADS US

 When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you remember when you were afraid of the dark ( especially after watching a late night horror movie ) ? You insisted on leaving the light on as protection from the “ boogy man “. 

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the light of the world to comfort us and lead us through the dark scary times in our lives.

Do you remember how afraid you felt the first time you saw lightening and felt the ground tremble under your feet?

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who is the solid rock that when terrible strong disasters strike out of no where He will be our strong hold to protect us through them .

Do you remember when we were children and were told to stay away from the streams and rivers during the spring thaw and the waters were raging ?

We as Christians have the assurance , faith and trust in He who places us upon the high places to safety when the floods of pains, disaster and sorrow come raging into our lives.

“Be thou a bright flame before me,|Be thou a guiding star above me,|Be thou a smooth path below me,|Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me,|Today – tonight – and for ever.” — Columba of Iona

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer ( The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your omnipotent love , assurance , comfort and strength through out all my many times of trouble. I extol You in the name of He calmed the storm for His disciples Jesus Christ . Amen

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