This is What They Need.

HOPE IN THE LORD

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Recently the news has been broadcasting about an epidemic of depression and suicide. The secular world is lost for answers to this plague. All your marches will produce nothing. All your government speeches sound pretty but are empty of results.

When I am afraid I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I am depressed (and we all get depressed from time to time) I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become angry because of an injustice perpetrated against me I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I become lonely I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

Whenever I question why I am here I go to my Beloved in prayer and He guides me to comforting verses in His guidebook to life (the Holy Bible). They comfort, calm and reassure me.

The Holy Bible is truly the only guidebook to life we will ever need along with prayer. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that God is in control. Lynn Thornton

As Christians it is our duty to guide those in the secular world to the Guidebook to life. This is what they need in the secular world but so strongly rejects. Woe is unto them, they have no hope.

We do not understand the intricate pattern of the stars in their courses, but we know that He who created them does, and that just as surely as He guides them, He is charting a safe course for us. Billy Graham

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me through my many trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares. If it were not for You my love I would have crashed and burned so many times in my life. I laud You in the name of the greatest whose precious blood made it possible for You to send the most wonderful Helper (the Holy Spirit) Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They were but Flesh.

For He remembered that they were but flesh. Psalm 78:39 New King James Version

Being of the flesh means we all have weaknesses and weak moments.

Occasionally we all give in to sinful desires. Come on now, have we not all bought something we could not afford and then regretted it later? Or how about the times when the mouth is in action before the brain is in gear and we say something we regret later?

Some call it human weakness.

As well we all have our weaknesses built into us from heredity, it is in our genes. So in some families alcoholism is heredity (which is why it is important to know your family roots and to teach them to your children).

Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live. Psalm 119:77 New King James Version

Do not allow the devil to deceive you into believing that when you sin Jehovah is mad at you and He rejects you and you lose your salvation. Do not allow the devil to con you into believing the lies that you must perform some act to be forgiven (like in the catholic church with their praying to beads or saying hail Maries).

You need to approach our loving Father in Heaven confess what you did, admit it was wrong and ask for forgiveness. Do it in the name of Jesus whose sacrificial blood has cleansed you of your sins when you repent.

 

Repent means to admit what you did. Admit it was wrong. And, when applicable make amends for the damage your sin has caused others.

If in your sin you have wronged someone you need to repeat this process with them.

 

A benefit of this is a healing in your spirit that washes away a guilt conscience. You will not have ulcers nor problems with sleep.

Repentance is as good for you as it is to the offended. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You do not need a physiatrist to tell you this. You need Jesus. You do not need to give your guilt to a physiatrist (and how many of them give you pills instead of dealing with the real issues?).

OBEDIANCE

 

You need to make it right with Jehovah.  Do not give excuses (the satanic ritual practiced by the world of not my fault it is societies fault or my parents fault or any one else’s fault. You are the one that committed the sin, you are responsible for it.) so just fess up and apologize for your sin. Make amends where it is appropriate. The offended soul may not forgive you but your conscience is clear before Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with forgiveness for my sins when I am weak and surrender to them and then sincerely repent of them. I exalt You in the name of he whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

It Still Happens Today

They will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark16:18 New International Version

Some modern day preachers teach that faith healing was done as a sign that the apostles were chosen by God.

I strongly disagree.

Just read Andrew Murray’s book Devine Healing.

Speaking from personal experience there was one time when I was doing volunteer work in a hospital and a very sick woman in a lot of pain was brought it. Feeling compassion for her I knelt at the side of her stretcher took her hand in mine and prayed for her. Her sickness left her and entered into me and caused me to violently vomit.

It was scary.

My Sensei’s (teacher in Japanese) who were teaching me Shiatsu, that were not Christian explained it to me in a Christian way. The sickness leaves their body and enters into ours which is why the Bible teaches us the importance of fasting before the laying on of hands. Then the Holy Spirit removes that illness from us.

It may sound corny and unbelievable but that is exactly what has occurred to me numerous times.

LET ME SHOW KINDNESS

That is why the Bible teaches that we must fast before we lay hands on people.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for the amazing privilege of bringing glory to You and helping to bring others to You through the spontaneous act of divine healing. I praise You in the name of the ultimate physical and spiritual healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Attacks Will be on You

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 ) King James Version
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). King James Version
I don’t know about you, but my worst tribulations came from those who were close to me before coming to Christ. They were the ones that constantly inflicted the most anguish and pain on me. So much so I had to move thousands of miles away from them. The pain I bore was almost unbearable and intense.
About a year later again someone close to me that was an unbeliever caused a lot of grief and tribulation in my life. That time it was not as severe though as I had the knowledge from the previous one and knew Jesus was with me every step of the way.
The closer you get to God, the more the attacks are going to be on you and the more severe they will be. Satan knows your weak points and that is where he will unmercifully attack you to destroy you.
Do not be afraid though. For we have the greatest champion in our corner who makes the devil scurry away like a freighted rat when a light is shone on them. His mighty name is JESUS CHRIST. He defeated satan on the cross and will defeat Him every time he attempts to destroy you.

CHRIST DEFEATS DEMONS

Oh for sure you will suffer. But, in the end that will make you stronger so you can withstand the vile wicked one when the next attack comes.

Do not get cocky though and believe you can take the devil on yourself. That is the sure fire way to humiliating defeat.

Instead know that when you are tortured or tempted to the breaking point that is when Jesus comes charging in like a raging fierce warrior to your rescue.

These attacks will occur throughout your entire life until you are called to your magnificent home in Heaven. Then you will realize all those battles were worth it.

Prayer: Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) thank you for coming to my rescue during the intense battles between satan and me. I know he is smarter than me and stronger. But, you are the smartest and strongest. You have promised to save me in my hour of need and I believe you always keep your word. In the name of our
great protector Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

How to Beat the Sneak.

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:1 New King James Version

Satan is sneaky.

He does not charge into your mind, he is subtle and begins with just little thoughts. Then they become cemented into your mind and grow like cancer. Eventually they will consume you and you commit a sin.

To effectively defeat this creep use the best and only weapon available to you to soundly defeat him very time.

Carry a Bible verse with you constantly and when the scumbag comes just pull out that verse and with power and authority shove it tight down his throat. Then for the finale inform him that you belong to Jesus so just take a hike. Say it with conviction.

Thoughts become habits so surround yourself with Godly thoughts.

To accomplish this listen to sermons on sermonaudio.com (I like to listen to Allister Begg, A.W. Tozer and Spurgeon.) every day, read Christian devotionals like http://www.actsweb.org and Our Daily Bread listen to Christian radio like http://www.joyfmonline.org and http://www.praise1065.com.

THE LORD WILL ANSWER

Pray to Jesus to reveal to you your bad habits and the method of defeating them.

Sometimes they are too strong for you and can only be defeated by completely surrendering them to Jesus.

As well think of the things that are triggers and avoid them like the plague. So if you are an alcoholic you need to avoid your drinking buddies and do not even walk down the streets with the bars you used to hang out at.

That is what happened to me with my addiction to alcohol. It was too strong for me and the only way to defeat it was through completely surrendering it to Christ. It was defeated that instant.   That does not mean that satan does not still try his sneaky little tricks but I have the protection of the Holy Spirit to resist him.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our protector) for the most powerful protection against the most devious liar and thief Lucifer. Your most awesome protection of this child that belongs to You has rescued me from the Highway to Hell and leads me on the difficult Pathway to Heaven. I in deep gratitude extol You in the name of my strong King who defeated our nemesis once and for all on the cross Jesus Christ . Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet 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.

Are You Possessed?

DEVINE LOV

And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.” Acts 5:32 King James Version

Are you possessed?

If you are a Christian you are.

Read the second part of this verse. Jehovah has given the gift of the Holy Spirit to those who obey Him.

Sorry, that excludes the “Sunday Christian” (the ones that are Christians during Sunday service), the lip service Christians (those who talk the talk but refuse to walk the walk), the good time Christians (those who are Christians during the good times but run like a rabbit during the trials and tribulations) and the prosperity Christians (those who believe Jehovah is a genie in a bottle made to serve them and give them everything they want).

The Holy Spirit is reserved for those of us who are the down and dirty Christians. We are the ones serving our King. Because we depend upon Him for knowledge how to best serve Him in our daily lives we are blessed with the best guidance councilor (the Holy Spirit).

Because we suffer trials and tribulations for our beloved King we are blessed with the best comforter, healer and encourager (the Holy Spirit) because they are at times too great for us to bear on our own.

Because we are the ones in the thick of the constant battle with the evil one and his minions we are blessed with the best strategist to defeat them (the Holy Spirit).

Because we  sometimes suffer in such intense anguish we do not know how to put our suffering into words the Holy Spirit speaks unto our Heavenly Father on our behalf.

Because there are times in our service unto our Heavenly King that we are completely drained He blesses us with the strength to carry on.

So Christian if (and it has happened a few times in my walk) someone dares to say you are crazy and possessed just smile and say like I do: “Thank you. Your very own words confirm the truth.”

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immanuel (God is with us) for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to always be with me and to help me in so very many wonderful ways. I extol You in the name of He whose precious blood made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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