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.

Do not fall for the masquerade.

NO DOMINION

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

This is why it is important to read our Bible, spend time in prayer and spend time fellow shipping with other believers.

Satan will come to us as many masquerades. He may come to you as one of these deceivers who preach the gospel of prosperity. Give your life to Jesus and He will give you everything you desire.

Nothing is further from the truth.

A Christian life is a life of sacrifice and one that concentrates more upon receiving spiritual wealth in Christ that in material gains.

He may come to you in the form of someone who is controlling and informs you, you have committed an unforgivable sin and the only way out is to follow their cult. When we repent with a sincere heart we are forgiven, not by what someone says but by the blood of Jesus.

That is why we need our daily nourishment of Bible reading to gain knowledge and fellowship with both other brothers and sisters and daily communion with Jehovah God. By doing this we will be aware of the wicked ones masquerade and be able to defend ourselves from the attacks and to protect other innocent victims that the wicked one is preying upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with wisdom to defend myself from the wicked ones destructive schemes and with the power to defeat Him. Thank you for blessing me with Your Divine protection when I am weak and gullible. I extol You in the name of He whose death and resurrection defeated the wicked one for eternity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Chased Me Out.

 

 

HONESTY

 And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge. Exodus 31:3 New King James Version

They began doing construction work in the apartment above where I live in with jackhammers and sledge hammers going all day. This of course means it is impossible to do any writing. I researched on the internet where there is a library nearby. The one found is modern and quiet (for China, these are the noisiest people I have ever met) and there outlets to plug in your computer to work in an air conditioned building. Considering that it gets to a hundred and ten in the apartment with no air conditioning during most of the year this was a blessing

On the first day there while taking a break I felt the Lord moving me to go for a walk on the library grounds. During this walk I was led to a walkway from the library to close to the apartment. This was a blessing because it meant that I did not have to suffer the cattle car experience of the subway every morning nor have to spend money on subway fare. As well, as it takes about an hour to walk there from the apartment it is good exercise and being outside.

When Chinese see a foreigner they always want to trick them into giving them free English lessons. While meditating on this problem the Lord reminded me of a sermon I heard some time in the past. It was how the early Christians were known as the people of The Way. The Way of course being that Jesus is the way.

So if the Chinese try their conniving, I merely instruct them that I am a teacher of The Way” and ask them if they are interested in learning about Christ. If they say no then I ask them why they are bothering me (You have to be blunt otherwise they will not leave you alone until they get what they want). If they say they are (many Chinese will lie and pretend to be interested just to get free English lessons) then they will pay for the class before the class begins (Chinese will say that they will pay and then at the end of the class not pay. I have ten years experience with these creatures and have learned my lessons the hard way. ) to prove their sincerity and yes it does say in the Bible that teachers are to be paid.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with a heart, mind and body that is always totally obedient to You in every aspect of my life. I sincerely request this in the name of He who showed us by example what true obedience is Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Editors note- this was written in my final days of living in China.

If We Confess.

FALL COLOURS ALONG COUNTRY TRAIL

 

 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 New King James Version Holy Bible

This is for those that believe the satanic teaching (if it is not of Jehovah than it is from satan) that because Jesus loves us we can do what we like and He will still accept us into Heaven and we will all hold hands in a circle and sing cum by ya my Lord.                                                        

They are living a fools dream and are in for a very shocking awakening.

 As for the churches teaching this foolishness you will be held more accountable than the fools that believe your lies.

Yes there is different level of punishment and those satanic teachers punishment will be more severe because they lead the innocent into Hell with their lies. Not only must we confess with a sincere heart (that means no excuses just admit what you did was wrong) but we must repent of them.

Repentance means admitting what you did was wrong. Apologize for those sins. Finally we must stop doing them. Nothing less is acceptable.  

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin. 2 Chronicles 7:14 New King James Version Holy Bible

Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to and obedient to Your holy Word and not to be seduced by the sweet talk filled with the filthy dung from the evil conniver satan and his despicable minions. I humble request this in the name of He who is the living truth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Add Sin to Sin.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord, “Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin. Isaiah 30:1 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Who are you going to listen to a child or a wise man? I always go with the wise man. Who is wiser than the Holy Spirit?

None that I know of, than why would you go to a flawed human for advice when you can get the perfect advice from the Holy Spirit. That is an insult to Jehovah. Now you can pray for the Holy Spirit to guide you to a Godly councillor.

If you are going to build a house and know nothing about it are you going to do it on your own or seek wise counsel? Than why do you not include Jehovah in your plans?

Going my way leads to disaster, going Jehovahs way leads to success. Joseph- Anthony: Green

That is an insult to Jehovah. When you insult Jehovah do you not believe that will anger Him?

I am about to pour out my wrath on you  and spend my anger against you. I will judge you according to your conduct  and repay you for all your detestable practices. Ezekiel 7:8 Holy Bible, New International Version

Do you than wonder why so many of your plans fail? And, when they do, why do you blame Jehovah?  

I do not know about you but I always include Jehovah in my plans because I want them to succeed and because I love Him I do not want to hurt His feelings. As well, I have both seen and experienced Jehovah wrath and it is not to be taken lightly.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with walking with me and guiding me by Your gentle, firm loving hand through the trails You desire for me to travel and the chores You have designated for me to fulfill on my walk to Your Heavenly home. I applaud You in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I will Behave Wisely.

I will behave wisely. Psalm 101:2 New King James Version

wisdom: knowledge that is gained by having many experiences in life, knowledge of what is proper or reasonable: good sense or judgment. Merriam Webster Dictionary

It says in the Bible that one of the signs of pre-tribulation is that knowledge will increase but wisdom will decrease. I believe that we are seeing that all over the world today.

Now how is a Christian to attain Godly wisdom? The first step is to begin with prayer. We should pray every day for Jehovah to bless us with wisdom. Then we wait. Just because we pray for something does not mean Jehovah will bless us with it immediately.

When the time is right Jehovah will bless you with the wisdom me need. It may come from daily Bible reading (which is as important to a Christian as daily prayer which is more important than the breath in our lungs), it may come from a wise Christian mentor either in our fellowship or from listening to on line sermons like on sermonaudio.com (my preference is Charles Spurgeon or Allister Begg) or from reading or listening to them on line Christian books ( I like to go to christianaudio.com, and openlibrary.org).

FALL COLOURS ALONG COUNTRY TRAIL

If you need Christian counseling may I suggest you go to Focus on the Family (in Canada and the United States).

Can you think of any place else you can attain wisdom?

Now sometimes the wisdom shared will be hard for you to swallow. Again take it to Jehovah in prayer and He will bless you with the strength to obey the wisdom shared with you. Following this course in your life will prevent a lot of grief, suffering and hardship.

Jehovah is not only the best councilor you need in every aspect of your life, He is the only one you need. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You do not need a physiatrist who spews politically correct rubbish or pumps you full of drugs, nor to listen to some quack on TV. I have seen too many follow this course and end up far worse than before they began “treatment”.

 

All you need in every aspect of your life is the never ending wisdom Jehovah longs to abundantly share with you.

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Knowledge comes from experience. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) with Your Divine wisdom to always seek and obey Your wise guidance in every aspect of my life. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient Son         Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Water are You Drinking

Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the Lord. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:12-13 New International Version                                                                           

The spring of living water is the Holy Spirit.                                                

He brings renewed life, strength and healing into our spiritual lives. Because of this we live a life of peace, contentment and joy.                   

Yes we go through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares but we have the Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and heal us through out them all.                                                                                                     

The Holy Spirit blesses us with wisdom for the true source of the meaning of live which blesses us with purpose in life.               

                                                     JESUS IS THE LIVING WATER                     

He fills us with peace and contentment with the knowledge that we are cared for by the Supreme God whom loves us so very much.                                                                    

The broken cisterns is fleshly desires and the water they cannot hold is spiritual satisfaction which is only accomplished by a loving relationship with Jehovah.

This leads to many addictions such as alcoholism, materialism (the buy, buy, buy syndrome. Yes you feel happy when you buy it but then it quickly fades and you are left enslaved to the banks and credit cards to pay off the debt).                                                                                       

Sexual promiscuously (which leads to sexual diseases and baby murder- abortion, broken marriages and numerous other maladies).                           

Drug abuse which is a living hell and slowly drags you into an eternal one. 

 Can any of you add to the list?                                                                       

These are all sad substitutes for the only thing that brings meaning, love, peace and joy to our lives.                                                                           

Of course true Christians know the only source for drinking pure water is the Holy Spirit which lives in us every day of our lives on this planet.                                                                                                             

So which water are you drinking?                                                              

Now here is the kicker: Do you notice this is aimed at Jehovahs people? This is not for those of the world but regarding those who call themselves Christians.                                                                                     

They have walked away from Jehovahs blessing to satisfy the lust of the world which they should know is filthy.                                                             

Have you been feeling that Jehovah is far from you, that there is no satisfaction in your walk with Christ?                                                          

Perhaps you need to go to Jehovah in prayer to convict you where you have strayed and the steps necessary to renew you love affair with Him.            

Prayer: Please  KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your loving voice and to be obedient unto it. In so doing I will be blessed with a never ending supply of Your life giving water every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the true living water Jesus Christ. Amen.

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