Which One Comes From You?

  And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance;  and endurance, proven character (spiritual maturity); and proven character, hope and confident assurance [of eternal salvation]. Romans 5:3-4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Jehovah assigns as difficult task for you to do are you obstinate, stomp your feet and say I refuse like a spoiled little brat? Even though He reasons with you with His Word, Christian Councilors and signs.

Or, if He directs you to stop doing something do you obstinacy refuse?

Beware.

Jehovah only does what is for your good. So, if you refuse to listen to Him, you will pay greatly in the long run.

I have seen many obstinate folks refuse to listen and slowly sink deeper and deeper into a living Hell.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” — Henry Ward Beecher

Perseverance means a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Obstinacy mean to be sticking to an opinion, purpose, or course of action in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

If on the other hand you obey Him you will learn to wait upon His time to mold you into the child He desire you to be. Through our hardships we become stronger in our trust in Him to see us through them and burn off the dross to become pure children of Jehovah. This will mold us into Holy children of Jehovah and be assured of our salvation. Do not think this is a one off experience. It takes years, even decades for Jehovah to accomplish His desire in you His beloved child.

That is why us older children need to come along side of the younger ones to strengthen them with our witness.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for being with me to guide me and strengthen me as You mold me into the child You desire for me to be. I exalt You in the name of He whose strength helped Him endure the horrible cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Do You Adhere To

 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name John 1:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you adhere to Christ?

To adhere to means to maintain loyalty and to bind oneself to observance ( adhere to the rules)

Are you loyal unto Christ?

Do you place your allegiance unto Him above your family, career and or possessions? Yes there are rules when you are a child of Jehovah (mainly Gods Law which states we are to do unto others as we would like them to do to us and to not do to others as we do not want them to do to us). Do you do to others as you would like them to do to you? That means to be respectful and to help others when you see they need help ( That does not mean to support those who refuse to take responsibility for their actions and refuse to help themselves. We “ owe “ them nothing ). Do you not do unto others as you do not want them to do to you ( that means no bullying or gossiping, backstabbing or cheating ) ? Do you trust Christ? Do you trust Christ with your finances? When He directs you to give of your finances even though it will hurt do you obey Him? Do you trust Him in your relationships? So say you meet someone you like but He sees what they are really like and directs you to end the relationship, do you trust Him to obey?

Do you rely upon Christ?

Do you daily rely upon Christ for guidance? So say you want a job and a good one is offered to you but you feel Christ saying no, will you walk away from it? Do you rely upon Christ in your interpersonal relationships? So say someone has done you wrong, do you rely upon Christ to give you the power to forgive them? If the abuse is habitual and Christ directs you to walk away from the relationship ( even if it is family ) will you walk away from them? Do you rely upon Him to find the proper spouse for you ( instead of the on line dating service where people can be as phony as a three dollar bill ) And, if He direct you to remain single will you rely upon Him to fill the void a spouse can fill?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for helping me adhere to Your righteous Holy manner in my behaviour in my relationship to You. I exalt You in the name of He whose total manner emulated His complete adherence unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You a Covenant of Salt?

 All the offerings of the holy things, which the Israelites offer to the Lord I have given to you and to your sons and your daughters with you as a continual allotment. It is an everlasting covenant of salt [that cannot be dissolved or violated] before the Lord to you and to your descendants with you.” Numbers 18:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are You a Covenant of Salt?

A covenant of salt is where a bride and groom would take salt and put it together in a container and shake it. Their marriage vows could be annulled if they could take back their own salt. This of course was impossible.

Are you a covenant of salt with Christ?

Is your spirit and body mixed with His so intimately that it is impossible to separate them? Before spending a dime does Christ come before self? Do you spend intimate time with Him every day and through out the day? Do you dedicate time to pleasing Him by serving others before you allow for one moment of pleasing self?

This is a true Christian, that his life is intertwined with Christ in though, word and deed. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating a life in me that is intertwined so close with You it is amazing and wonderful. Please bless me to never foolishly attempt to separate me salt form Your Holy salt. I praise You and request this in the name of the most Holy Salt of the earth and Heavens Christ. Jesus Amen.

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

A Sacrifice of Praise and Thanksgiving

 He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me Psalm 50:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A sacrifice is an act of offering to a deity something precious.

What precious gift of praise and thanksgiving do you off unto Jehovah when He blesses you?

For me , of course there is the one tenth but if possible that amount is exceeded.

So suppose Jehovah blesses you with a raise, are you willing to give up your daily coffee at the coffee shop for Him as an act of praise and thanksgiving to help with paying for something in service unto Christ cheerfully?

Are you willing to give up watching your favourite TV program say one night a week in service unto Him as an act of praise and thanksgiving to help with paying for something in service unto Christ cheerfully ?

For me I give up my Sunday mornings to take seniors to Sunday Service at a seniors home.

Christ loves a cheerful giver not a grumpy one. Joseph- Anthony: Green

How about you, what do you offer as a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving cheerfully and with grateful thanks?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully blessing me with resources, opportunity, skill and time to bless others as You daily bless me. I gratefully thank You in the name of Your greatest blessing Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have and Enjoy Life.

 

I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. John 10:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see many ads on TV advertising for the good life. Okay you have got your body in great shape at the gym by punishing yourself every day but does that bring you satisfaction in your life? What happens if you get sick or injured? There goes your good life.

When you nurture the good life with Christ you will experience an abundant supply of the good life fill with love, joy and purpose which will never get sick or broken.

Okay so you go on holiday and have a good life of getting pampered but then you come home with a big bill that pays for it, how good is your life when you are sweating it out at work to pay for that vacation?

When you nurture your relationship with Jehovah He will reveal beauty all about you and will pamper you with His love.

Okay so you go out and buy unnecessary expensive things that you get bored of, how much of a good life do you have slaving over the payments for that toy that you grow tired of?

With Jehovah, He will bless you with purpose in life that is fulfilling and rewarding.

The most enjoyable life is one that walks in harmony with Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for the overflowing blessing of a truly enriching life walking in harmony with You. I praise You in the name of my most cherished blessing Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How Much do You Trust?

 

Then they asked Him, “What are we to do, so that we may habitually be doing the works of God?” Jesus answered, “This is the work of God: that you believe [adhere to, trust in, rely on, and have faith] in the One whom He has sent.” John 6:28-29 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Another word for faith is trust.

How much do you trust Jehovah with your life?

If He asks you to leave a well paying job to live in an impoverished environment with no means of income do you trust Him to supply you with all you need?

Do you trust Him to lead you to the right spouse to share you life with ( and that means man and woman not the filth the liberals ( satanic ) spew with their filthy lies) ?

What if they are not good looking or socially inept or not financially secure? Will you trust Him?

Do you trust Him in death that He will send an angel to take you safely to the other side?

When you are challenged with integrity to do the right thing even though it is going to cost you and you know you will suffer for doing what is right how much do you trust Him then?

For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, “The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

God asks us to trust that He loves us… that He is with us this moment… that He rewards those who seek Him… that He will provide in the future as He has in the past… that He is working all things together for our good… that He is directing us and living His life through us… that He continually gives the wisdom we need… that He hears and answers our prayers.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for being so patient with me over the years as You slowly taught me to expand and strengthen my trust in You and to prove me trust in You with my words and actions. I humbly exalt You 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.

In a Very Little Thing.

 

He who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much. Luke 16:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One time a woman had some antiques for sale. Many years went by to no avail. Finally I humbly requested the Lords blessing in the sale. I asked the seller if she would donate one tenth as Jehovah says in the Bible, for a charitable cause to which she agreed. Shortly there after I was given a contact that might me interested. Not only did she buy all the woman had to offer but paid more than was requested. When it was mentioned to the woman the ten percent she became very angry and refused to pay so I took the ten percent and told her it was my fee. Even though she was prepared to cheat Jehovah I was not.

Now, do you believe Jehovah will bless her in selling her big ticket items? She has no takers so far. Not only that, but she has developed a very painful ailment as well for which there is no cure.

Jehovah will bless you with little blessings but if you refuse to share them wisely them He will not share with you the big blessings. He takes your vows seriously and you had better as well.

“Lying covers a multitude of sins – temporarily.” Dwight L. Moody

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) guide me where to give wisely and generously so as to exalt Your wonderful name. I humbly request this in the name of He who gave His cherished blood for me Jesus Christ. Amen.

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