He Will Destroy You.

DARKNESS

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 New King James Version

Do you see the important part of these verses?

Anyone who destroys Jehovahs temple, He will destroy you.

As we Christians are the temple then it stands to reason that the offense is anyone that does anything to destroy another’s Christian walk. That includes false teachers and the wolves.

Some examples of false teachers are those who teach that we do not need to accept the fact that Christ died and slow agonizing death while shedding His Divine love for us.

Another example of anti-Christ teaching is that because Jesus loves us we can do what ever we desire with no consequences. Because He loves us we are all going to Heaven, hold hands in a circle and sing come by ya my Lord in Heavenly bliss. This satanic teaching is very popular in todays culture.

An additional satanic teaching is that there is no difference between Christ and the satanic cults of the world like islam There is a false teaching going around that there is no difference between Christianity and muslims. Christians believe Jesus is the son of God, muslims do not. Christians believe Jesus has been with Jehovah for all eternity, muslims do not. Christians believe that it is only through Christs sacrifice on the cross and our acceptance of Him as our Savior that gains us entry into Heaven, muslims do not.

Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way. Romans 14:13 New King James Version

The most wicked ones in any church are the wolves. They worship their god satan by driving more people from the church and Christ than anything or anyone else. These filth are the ones that are so high and mighty. They are quick to pounce upon others weaknesses in a superior judgmental way. I have seen too much of these wicked cursed ones in church and been the recipient of too many of their attacks. The perverse thing is that these are the ones that are the biggest sinners.

There are three types of folks that attend church. The biggest should be the smallest and the smallest should be the biggest.

The biggest group is the wolves, those seeking to attack others in a judgmental attitude and behavior. They drive more people from Christ and His church than any other contributing factor.

The next group is the groupies. They are not in church to worship or serve Christ, they are there to socialize in their little groups. If you are a new comer they will seldom welcome you to their group.

The last and smallest group are those who congregate to worship the Holy Trinity and to serve them.

When you attack a Christian, you attack Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for protecting and defending me against attacks by the wicked ones who knowingly or unknowingly attack Your precious child. Even though it was hard You taught me to depend upon You to defend me instead of foolishly being a hot head and attempting this feat with my own limited power and knowledge. Please bless them my love with seeing how wicked their behavior and attitude is and repenting of it. I praise You in the name of He who will be the ultimate victor in this battle Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Jehovah bless you today and every day with His precious love, joy and peace.

I will Teach You.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:11 New King James Version

In this context fear is not to be afraid but rather to respect.

Yes it is important for parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles and teachers to teach young children about Jehovah.

 

But, do not forget that new comers to the family of Jehovah are like children and not mature. They need mentors to guide them along the path of righteousness both by example and by teaching. It will require a lot of patience as many of them will bombard you with incessant questions. That is another reason why there should be more than one teacher so they do not get exhausted.

Teaching is not just from the Bible but also from personal experience. I believe the personal experience to be the strongest form of teaching. Just as in the New Testament times they met in brothers and sisters houses so should they today.

Just as they shared meals together back then so too is it just as important today (Imagine having a pot luck dinner with brothers and sisters from different cultures. Not only do you have fellowship and Bible study but you are exposed to various different culinary delights from around the world.

CHRIST'S FAMILY

Imagine learning a different language and different songs of praise and thanksgiving to different styles of music from all over the world? Hearing their stories of how they came to Christ and what He has done in and through their lives may inspire and strengthen you as well.

Take turns going to each others homes if possible.

Being in the modern world of course there is online Bible study groups (Skype is free). You can study with brothers and sisters from all over the world. I have and found it very enlightening.  An added benefit is when you study with someone from a different culture and country you can learn another language and varied history.

It does not matter if a baby or a seasoned vet we can all learn from each other, strengthen each other, support each other and encourage each other.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with numerous opportunities to enjoy fellowship, brotherly love and friendship with numerous brothers and sisters in my neighbourhood and around the world. I give thanks in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Tell It and Then Walk Away

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matthew 7:24-27 New International Version.

The interesting thing about this story is that Jesus told a simple and easy to understand parable so everybody could understand what He was saying. At the end of it He just got up and walked away. I believe He did this to give the people time to digest what He was saying.

Now that was not the end of it though.

After His resurrection when His disciples came sharing His story the people were more receptive to accepting it.

SHARE THE WORD

So too it is with us

When we share the story with people of Jesus why not make it as simple as possible for them to understand the message and then just leave them alone to think about it?

Do not try to get them to accept Jesus right then and there. That is a huge mistake too many Christians make. Do not use pressure tactics. Jesus never did, why should you?

If they are receptive, the Holy Spirit will guide them to where they can learn more. Maybe it will be you, maybe someone else.

If they are not receptive to Jesus’ story they will not listen anyway and it is a waste of both your time and usually ends up with nothing but frustration on both parties’ behalf.

I have met too many people that just at the mention of Jesus’ name it is an instant turn off because of the pressure tactics that was tried on them previously.

Not only that but maybe they are not ready to accept Jesus just then.

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) guide me on how to share you with others and the best time to just walk away. I sincerely ask this in Your loving name. Amen

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

I Love To

GODS BEAUTY

“Be still, and in the quiet moments, listen to the voice of your heavenly Father. His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.”  Janet L. Weaver

I love to be still and be with the Lord. For me it is always by a stream or on a beach at sunrise.

It is here that I just relax and enjoy being with my beloved. I do not speak but just enjoy the peace, serenity love and joy of being in His presence.

How many people take time to just be together with Jesus without whining?

If you are a parent, how do you feel if the only time your child comes around is when they want something from you or to whine about problems?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God amongst us) for the amazing blessing when You enrich me with Your magnificent presence in our quiet times. I am filled with pure joy and love when we are in harmony with each other that I cherish.  I give thanks in the name of He who always enjoyed His quiet time with You every day Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Few Will Hear.

God  give us

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them. Acts 2:13 New King James Version                                                                                                              

When I was a teacher we would always get into discussions about why I live different from other foreign teachers the Chinese students have met. It would be explained to them that I was a Christian. Then we would get into debates about Christianity. After about six months there would only be about four students out of a class of fifty that would be open to accepting Christ.     

                                             

That was because just as there were many that heard but not all accepted with Peter.       

                                                                                                                                  

So too it was with me and so too it will be with you.                                                        

It is only those whose heart is open to hearing the Word that will be receptive to the Word. So give the message, if people’s hearts are open they will come to you, if their hearts are closed it does not matter what you say or do, they will refuse to listen and you are therefore wasting both their time and yours.                                     

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be your voice to the people. Please give me the wisdom to be open to those who are receptive to Your life giving word.                                               Please give me the wisdom and grace to be hospitipal to those who reject Your wise word.                  I humbly request this in the name of he who taught us the proper manner in behaving towards others Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                            

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

The Three Attacks.

LORDS STRENGTH

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

In the first attack Satan tempted Jesus’ material needs.

The longest I have fasted was twenty eight days and I can tell you, you become acutely aware of all the fragerant smells of all the food around you.

So Satan tempted Jesus with His hunger.

So too does he tempt us with material things which become things we give in to such as spending too much time working for your house that it takes time away from Bible study and prayer.

 

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”

 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

This is the second attack. The devil will tempt you to do stupid things like maybe go into a dangerous neighborhood alone to share the gospel believing Jehovah will send angels to protect you. If Jesus does not send you there and you go on your own, you are tempting God.

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.  “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”  Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

 

This is the third attack. Satan tempts you to surrender your morals to become popular, to gain prestige and to gain wealth.

From my experience when you make this deal with the Devil you not only surrender your soul, you surrender your heart. In time not only do you lose your popularity, prestige and wealth but you have lost your heart and soul.

Just look at all the former sports stars, TV stars and popular singers of days gone by. Almost all of them are living in abject poverty now.

Do you want to follow them?

From Matthew 4:1-10 New International Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with the necessary tools to defeat the cunning deceiver Satan when he comes a knocking so as to protect me from his conniving attacks and deception. I strongly request these tools in the name of He who defeated Satan once and for all on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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

Stop and Pray.

MEEKNESS

Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit. Mark 13:11 New International Version

 

Before I say anything whether in a letter or in a debate or disagreement with anybody I try to make it a practice to always stop and pray for the Holy Spirit to guide my words.

 

It is difficult to master this technique but it has prevented a lot of foot in mouth disease that is regretted later (You know foot in mouth disease? That is where you say something that puts your foot in your mouth. In other words you say something that makes you feel stupid later).

 

This is especially good to prevent being trapped by the sicko’s that enjoy baiting you and prevents a lot of disagreements from become yelling matches where you say things in the heat of the moment you regret later.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God of grace) for teaching me the art of grace in conversations and correspondence.

 

I know as a Christian I represent Your voice when I speak so it is vitally important to pray for Your divine wisdom before speaking or writing.

 

I gratefully thank you in the name of he who always spoke gracefully in when the occasion called for it to be done forcefully Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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