The More Peace You Are

May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

Grace in this context means the free and unmerited favour of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.

Favour means assistance.

So, what this verse means is that the more we know Jehovah, the more help He will bless us with which blesses us with peace.

How are we to obtain knowledge of Jehovah?

Try this: begin your day with prayers of gratitude and for knowledge of Jehovah.

Subscribe to daily devotionals like our daily bread, or https://www.5minutediscipleship.com/podcast.html And read them every morning.

Instead of wasting your time watching the idiot box ( TV ) or watching filthy movies or being on social media why not listen to good Christian preachers like Max Lucado, David Jeremiah or Charles Stanley. .

Why not listen to the fantastic encouraging video’s by Grace for Purpose and Above Inspiration before you go to bed.

Why not read one of Gods promises a day and claim it as your own ( you can read them on biblegateway. com- I prefer the new living translation but there are many more to choose from ).

The more time you spend with Jesus, the more peace you are blessed with . Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah (Ezekiel 48:35 The LORD Is There ) for blessing me with Your cherished loving, Heavenly communion and help. These are the greatest treasures in my life. I exalt You in the name of He with whom I love to walk with and talk with in Your glorious creation, Jesus Christ. Amen

Seleh- stop and think about it.

Before and After

“If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Whenever any person becomes a new creature in union with Christ, he or she becomes a new person altogether. There is a whole new creation whenever a person comes to be in Christ. The effect is the old life is passed away and a new life has begun. Everything becomes new in Christ. The person who is in Christ and has experienced the new birth is a part of the new creation.

We are new creatures in Christ Jesus. There has been a re-creation in which God has given us a new set of senses, values, and spiritual principles.

Before we were spiritually blind, now we see with spiritual eyes, and we see all things new.

Before we were spiritually deaf and we could not hear God’s Word, and now we have a new set of spiritual eyes and we hear and respond to the Holy Spirit.

Before our minds were in spiritual darkness, and we called bad, good and good, bad. Now we have the mind of Christ and we see the difference between that which is good and that, which is evil. Our minds are now being renewed day by day.

Before our hearts were hardened to spiritual truths, and we hated God and the things of God. Now God has changed them from hearts of stone to hearts made alive to the things of the Spirit.

Before we were spiritually dead, and now we have become new creatures in Christ Jesus.

Before we were a people without hope and now we have a living hope in Christ. Apart from the resurrected, living Christ we cannot have any true hope of anything beyond our grave.

Before we were without God in this world and now we have come to a living relationship with the one and only true God. We were separated from Christ and without God, but now we have an intimate personal love relationship with Him.

We were “dead in our trespasses and sins,” but now in Christ we are made alive and have been brought near through the blood of Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:13).

God has brought us near to Himself through the atoning blood of Jesus. There are no other legitimate means of coming into His presence.

Before we were “cut off” and “excluded from the citizenship of Israel,” but now we are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household” (2:19). Now we are citizens of heaven and sons of God.

Before we were cut off from the covenants and promises of God, but now we are “members of one body, and sharers together in the promises in Christ” (3:6).

Before we were “without God,” but now we are “members of God’s household” (2:19-20).

Please take a few moments and draw a line down the middle of a sheet of paper and think about what your life was like before you became a Christian. In the other column list what it has been like since Christ changed your life. This is what my life was like before I became a Christian, and this is when I put my faith in Christ to save me. Now these are the changes Christ has wrought I my life. Then take a few moments and reflect upon what you shall be like when Christ returns, or when He calls you home in death to be with Him in heaven.

What a great new life we have in Christ!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

The Sound of a Gentle Whisper.

And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. 1 Kings 19:12 The Holy Bible The New Living Translation

When The Holy Spirit speaks with you it is for your own good.

Most people refuse to listen because He is suggesting ( The Holy Spirit always suggests. He never demands. He is respectful and a gentleman not a tyrant Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah ) they either do something or not do something because it is for their own good. Most people refuse to listen to The Holy Spirit when He tries to speak with them. They do so because they are selfish, stubborn and down right stupid. They do not want to obey Him.

Of course the end result of that is always the same, disaster.

That is when most people ask the stupidest question “ God why are you doing this to me?” No, that is not your conscience speaking with you with that soft whisper. If it is for your good it is The Holy Spirit. If it is for selfishness it is satan.

Most people are terrified of silence because that is when The Holy Spirit speaks with them and tells them things they do not want to hear. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

Speaking personally, every time the Lord has spoken audibly with me it has always been in a soft whisper. That is why it is important to always have quiet times. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit who always speaks with me in a soft, reassuring voice to guide me down The Path to Heaven that You have chosen for me to travel. Thank you for guiding me to the place where we can enjoy quiet times together. I praise You in the name of He who I enjoy spending time walking with and talking with in Your creation, Jesus Christ. Amen

Seleh- stop and think about it.

Prospective Choices

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.

I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

The Attitude of God toward the Saved

Was the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ when He died on the cross all-sufficient for God to save the sinner? Was His sacrifice sufficient for God to justly keep the sinner saved? Is God lacking in wisdom and power to fulfill His eternal purpose for the saved sinner?

Ultimately the question of eternal security is reduced to a question of the all-sufficiency of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ when He died on the cross.

If the person who has received eternal life by believing on Christ is ultimately lost then we must conclude that God is impotent and the sacrifice of Christ is not sufficient to save the depraved sinner. One would have to conclude that the Sovereign LORD God would have to submit to a power greater than Himself that He has created.

The eternal purpose of God for the sinner is that we be “conformed to the image of His Son” (Rom. 8:291 Cor. 15:49Phil. 3:20-21Col. 3:101 Jn. 3:2). Could our great God and Savior be so careless as to what becomes of the person He has so loved and sent His Son to die for on the cross?

The apostle Paul argues the attitude and power of God will be “much more” for the person He has saved than His attitude of love for His enemies before He saved them. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Romans 5:8-10).

God has demonstrated His love toward His enemies by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross (vv. 6, 8). Christ died on behalf of, or instead of the sinner. Paul argues from the greater problem to the less saying the greater thing is the justification “by His blood.” Since that was an awesome mystery of profound cost, keeping the sinner saved is less of a mystery. God gave His Son as a propitiation for our sins (Rom. 3:25Col. 1:101 John 2:204:10). We have become reconciled to God by means of the death of His Son. Paul argues, “Much more then” we shall be saved “by His life.” Christ is alive, seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven, “since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25).

Since God has gone to such great costs to save us, He will do “much more” if that is needed to keep us saved (Rom. 5:9-10). It is inconceivable that our Good Shepherd and Savior who has sacrificed so much to save us in giving His Son on the cross, would be careless to insure or secure such an investment.

How “much more” is His attitude of love to those whom He has cleansed in His blood, transformed by His power and saved. If God has gone to such lengths to save us then He will surely save us from His fiery wrath by that same blood of propitiation. He died in the place of the powerless, ungodly sinners who were His enemies. Certainly, his Savior will not forsake that “now-declared-righteous” person. Since the blood of Jesus has resolved the greater dilemma, certainly the justified sinner will be saved from God’s wrath. “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 8:1). The saved sinner will never be condemned to hell (Jn. 5:24).

The atoning sacrifice is totally the work of God, accomplished by the blood of Jesus. God has removed the enmity that stands between people and God. Since reconciliation was done “through the death of His Son,” while we were enemies, then His present resurrection life in heaven will insure the complete and final salvation of believers.

Paul’s argument is, “Before we were saved, God proved His love by sending Christ to die for us. Now that we are His children, without doubt He will love us more.” If God saved us while we were sinners, He will keep on saving us now that we are His children. The child of God will not experience the wrath of God. Since Christ accomplished our reconciliation in His death how “much more” will He do for us in His life of intercession for us in heaven. We are eternally saved because He lives (Heb. 7:23-25Rom. 8:34). He is interceding for us even now.

Since God the Son died for us when we were sinners who hated Him, how much more will He save from the wrath of God those who are now in a righteous standing as is the Son is with the Father.

“Much more” having been now justified by His blood we shall be saved through Him from the wrath of God. “Much more” having been reconciled we shall be saved by His life.

Selah! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

For What They Have Done.

“So my advice is, leave these men alone. Let them go. If they are planning and doing these things merely on their own, it will soon be overthrown. But if it is from God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God!” Acts 5:38-40 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Every government or group or agency that wages war against Christians and Jehovahs values wages war against Christ.

Who do you think is going to win that war?

This is exactly what has happened through out history.

Whenever tyrants have tries to eliminate Christians the exact opposite happens. It not only thrives but it grows.

Just look at China for prove of that during Mao’s reign of terror.

The ones that persecuted the Christians look like they are winning for a while but their downfall comes quickly and they suffer for their wicked deeds.

Just look how Pol Pots final years were spent.

So, do not be afraid of the tyrant wicked politicians or the woke crowd which is nothing but a bunch of Whining Willies that have spaghetti for a spine.

It looks like they are winning now but their doom is signed by the blood of the Christians they persecute.

O Lord, You will punish them for what they have done. Lamentations 3:64 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Seleh. Seleh means to stop and think about it.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hashopet (Judges 11:27 The LORD the Judge ) that you are a fair and impartial judge and each one of us shall receive our appropriate rewards for the deeds we have done on this planet. I praise You in Your just name. Amen

But God Will Be

Then Jacob said to Joseph, “Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and will take you back to Canaan, the land of your ancestors. Genesis 48:21 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation

Many times we have to part ways with Godly mentors but that is okay because The Holy Spirit it always with us and guides us along The Path to Heaven that Jesus has chosen for us to follow.

That has happened so many times in my life.

Someone I greatly admire and I part ways and I feel as if I am the only one in the world.

That is good because although Godly mentors are important it is more important that they are not placed above The Trinity.

As well, that Godly mentor can only lead us so far and then The Holy Spirit will guide us to another one to continue on the journey like a relay race.

Boy, has that happened a lot in my life as well.

Oh, and do not forget that at some point you will be a mentor to someone as well. It will happen numerous times.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide ) for blessing me with so many wonderful mentors along the Path to Heaven You have chosen for me to travel in this life. Thank you as well for the many opportunities I have had to be a righteous mentor to others. I praise You in the name of the best mentor, Jesus Christ. Amen

SELAH!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!
