The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Experienced the Same Dance

SEEKING JEHOVAHS ADVICE

And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked?  Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it?  Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”

So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.”

Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose there were five less than the fifty righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack offive?”

So He said, “If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it. ”            

And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?”

So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.”

 Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?”

So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”

And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?”

So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.”

Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?”

And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.Genesis 18: 23- 33 New King James Version

                                                                                                                               

Notice that Jehovah knows that Abraham is pleading to save his nephew Lots life from the destruction of Sodom.                                                                                                                                     

Instead of coming right out and asking, Abraham dances around the bush. He had no doubt known the wickedness in that city and that it deserved to be destroyed but he was concerned about Lots life.                                                                                                                                                               

How many times do we do that with our Beloved?                                                                                                      

He knows what we want to ask but is patient with us as we dance around our request.                           

Most of the time I am polite but direct in my requests to Jehovah and to people.

                                                         

I have experienced the same dance when people want to ask me something. I want to scream at them and say just ask me already!             

Be honest, sincere and respectful in your requests and it will save a lot of time for both of us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                

Instead of trying to manipulate Jehovah (which in a way is what Abraham was doing) do you not believe the respectful thing to do is to humbly ask Jehovah for what we want?                                   

Prayer: Thank You Jesus Pryyand (God is my friend) for the amazing privilege of having a loving Devine friend like You that is always available, willing to listen and grant my righteous request. Please remind me to be respectful and direct with my requests unto You. I gratefully ask this in Your awesome name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Can It Convict You?

PERSECUTION

Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.  John 14:22-24 New King James Version

 

If Christianity were illegal today in your country can your neighbour convict you on your behaviour?

 

Can it convict you?

Does you attitude and behaviour give Jehovah a good name or a bad one?

 

Oh, none of are perfect and we all fall short but overall does your attitude and behaviour give glory to Jehovahs name or shame and ridicule?

When we were children we were told to behave because if we did not it would bring shame and disgrace to our family name (not that it was that good anyway).

We are Jehovahs children. What does our attitude and behaviour say of His family? Does it make your neighbours desire to be adopted into that family or does it make them want to run away?

Be careful being a Christian always puts you in the spotlight. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

That does not mean you have to be perfect but rather that you are so ingrained with the Holy Spirit that it shows in the way you live. When you are a new born you will make many mistakes but that is okay. We all you through the growing strong process. For some it will take years, for some decades but what is important is that you submit your life into the Master Potters hands so He can and will mold you into a beautiful vessel of His.

 

“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’  But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out. Luke 13:24-28 New King James Version                                          

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our Creator) create in me a heart and disposition that is the willing clay in the Master Potters hands. I humbly request this in the name of the Master Potter Jesus Christ. Amen.  

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

If You Are Not Looking

HUNGERY FOR GOD

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9 New International Version

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

How can you find God?

When you read your Bible and daily devotionals like : Our Daily Bread and Acts International by Dick Innes, when you listen to sermons online like sermonsaudio.com, when you talk with other Christians and listen to Christian music like on JoyFmonline.org or Prasie1065.com God will speak to you.

When He speaks to you listen to Him, talk with Him about like He is your best friend. Then obey what He is guiding you to do. Then you will develop the most amazing love affair. You will enjoy spending time with Him

He walks with me, and He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own; And the joys we share as we tarry there None other has ever known.C. Austin Miles

Prayer: Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) please guide me how to experience the most astounding love affair there ever could be, the one with You. I humbly request this in Your beloved name Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

It Can Turn Them Against Him.

DARKNESS

See how great a forest a little fire kindles!  And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.  For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.  But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.  With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.  Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. James 3:5-10 New King James Version

Choose your words carefully because as a Christian you are on display.

If you are critical or self righteous you will turn non-believers against Christ. For that you will be judged much harsher than a non-believer.

As well imagine the last words you say to someone is: I hate you!!” and then they get killed in an automobile accident.

How will you feel?

Believe me many people live the rest of their lives in regret because they do this.

Prayer: Please  Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) guide me words today that they will heal and bless rather that destroy. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose words were healing to the woman at the well Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
