Which Destination do You Chose?

Christ, WILL LEAD

 

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New International Version.

We all have a predestination but must chose which one we will accept.

There are those who refuse to accept Christ as their Savior. To them their predestination is Hell. That is their choice.

There are the wise who accept Christ as their savior.

Now once we have accepted Christ He has predestined works for us to do. If we refuse to do these works He will punish us, if with nothing else than the refusal to bless us.

Think of a child who is informed that if they keep their room clean they will get an allowance on Friday. It has been predestined that doing their assigned work will be rewarded on a certain day.

When Christ assigns us work our predestined reward may be here and now but definitely will be in Heaven.

When driving down the road we see speed signs. If we go over the limit we get a ticket. That does not mean we cannot drive anymore.

So too it is when we refuse to obey Jehovah’s commands.

He will punish us but that does not mean we will lose our salvation.

If, however, we continue to live in disobedience unto Him, THEN, yes, you will lose your salvation be dammed to eternal Hell.

So my question to you is: which predestination have you chosen?

Prayer: Jehovah Hashanah (Jehovah our maker), thank you for the predestined path You have chosen for my life. Please help me to always stay on Your straight and narrow road. I modestly ask for this blessing in the name of He who is our great Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Reliable and Trustworthy

true-friendship

 

 Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word].Hebrews 10:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we become Christians we confess Christ as our Savior, King and best Friend.

We have all had friends that have let us down and even back stabbed us.

When Jesus is our bestest friend He is reliable and trust worthy. He never lets us down or back stabs us. His word is law. He promises to always be there with us and for us. He never lets us down. During our trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares we cling to His promise and it strengthen us to endure the hard times. As we progress in our walk with Him we become more confident in Him because He has proven Himself to be reliable and trustworthy.

Constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in Christ], steadfast and patient in distress, devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength]. Romans 12:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We have all received conflicting and bad advice about our careers from others.

When we accept Christ as our King we follow the path He has chosen for us with hope (Hope in this manner is confidence in His divine guidance.) Many times He leads us where we do not understand where He is leading us but we trust in Him more and more along the journey because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable so far.

As death approaches us we are not worried about the unknown or the torment of Hell because we are confident in our hope that He as our Savior will be there to greet us to our Heavenly home. That is because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy and reliable all of our lives.

Jehovah promises and He always delivers on His promises. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for always being faithful to me in Your divine guidance in every aspect of my life. I praise You for this precious treasure in the name of my faithful king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

At Compound Interest.

GUARD YOUR INPUT

 One of the advantages of getting old is seeing the hand of Jehovah in others lives during the course of a few decades.

If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins.” Leviticus 26:21 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed many of the proud and arrogant laugh as they foolishly believe they can live their lives as they see fit and are cruel and dishonest with their neighbours. Through the course of time their mental, physical and spiritual health deteriorates until they are living a daily life of living hell all alone. They are angry and bitter. The strange thing is that they know if they repent at least they will have mental and spiritual health but because they are arrogant they refuse, even unto death. At the moment of death they are alone and terrorized knowing that they are doomed to be cast into eternal Hell where they belong. There is a deep sense of doom and gloom in the room and you cannot wait to get out of there. It is a very sad and pitiful site to see no matter how bad they were to you.

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the [steadfast] lovingkindness which He swore to your fathers. He will love you and bless you. Deuteronomy 7:12-13 Amplified Bible

I have witnessed those that love Jehovah and are obedient unto Him. They are kind, loving, joyous and generous. They age gracefully and are surrounded with a swarm of others to constantly help them when they need help in their old age. They are enveloped with an aura of peace, love, joy and gentleness. You cannot help but love to be around them and help them. When it is time for them to pass on to the other side they are surrounded by loved ones. There is a peace in the room when they pass on. You cannot help but cry with joy at the honour of being their friend and look forward to being with them in Heaven.

“Good and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you my Beloved Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with Your divine guidance to walk in Your Heavenly light. Thank you that the fruit of this light is love, joy and peace and with the numerous opportunities to share this light with others in a cold, cruel dark world. I praise you in the name of the Prince of Light Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

In the Christians Heart.

 

 HEAVENS HOME

In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2 New King James Version

                                                                                                                                                            

Suppose you see a sign on the highway that says next turn to Babyville which is where you are heading.

 

Would you believed the sign and take the turn?

Of course you would.

When the Bible tells us Christians we are heading for Heaven why do we doubt it?

 

The Bible is Gods road map to Heaven.

Why would we doubt God?

It is not arrogance but faith in the Christians heart that he is Heaven bound. Christ has said He has a Heavenly home prepared for us and we have faith in His word. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the Christians heart we are confident we are Heaven bound. It is not arrogance but rather confidence.

A Christian does not make plans for their lives but follows where Christ leads them. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

To the world this appears arrogant because they do not know nor believe the promise of Christ.

Do not be arrogant when discussing this with Christians and non-Christians but rather humble. Humble means you do not behave arrogant nor subservient to others because you have confidence in who you are.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for preparing a beautiful Heavenly home for me where I shall be blessed to be with You for eternity. I thank you in the name of my best friend whom I also have a deep desire to share time with in our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who is Your Master?

A gentle loving caress

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

Who is your master, society or Jesus?

Yes Jesus is our Saviour but He is also our best friend.

People develop relationship with those who have the same dispositions as them.

 

So someone who is a baseball fanatic would not be friends with someone who would rather spend their time at the ballet.

So too it is with your relationship with Christ.

You cannot be a pig and a cat.

The pig wallows in filth and hates the sunlight.

The cat hates the filth and loves the sunlight.

 

The filth is the fleshly desire, the sunlight is Christs presence.

You cannot have one foot in the pig pen and one foot in the light.

This may mean you choose to please Christ rather than your parents or other relatives.

 

This will mean you have to give up your pig friends and associate with those the world deems “geeky” cats.

 

Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) bless me to emulate my most cherished friend in all I do and say so that others may desire Your Divine friendship as well. I gratefully give thanks and ask for this blessing in Your loving 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

H.O.M.E.

I am looking forward to being here.

What do you look forward to experiencing when you go home? What do you think Heaven will be like? I look forward to going home.

H=Home is Heaven. It is where we will be with our beloved family and friends and with our most beloved, Jesus, forever. There we will meet new friends and everybody will share joyous meals together. It will not matter your race, if you are tall or short, fat or skinny, boy or girl. There will be no rich or poor there. We will all be in joyful harmony together. No family fights there.

O= Overjoyed to be where we will face no more sorrow or pain. We shall be constantly over filled with joy every moment for eternity. There will be joy being with Jesus. There will be joy being with old and new friends. There will be joy in a truly fulfilling career Jesus has planned just for us.

M=Meditation, where we can truly sit at the feet of Jesus and share in His marvelous wisdom. It will be a never ending education where we will run to class in eager anticipation of drinking in the wisdom of the greatest teacher. Imagine sitting at the feet of Noah and Moses sharing incredible stories with us. There will be no tests we will be graded on because what we eagerly learn will become a part of us.

E=Employment, this where we will all be employed with a specific career that will be fulfilling and we will look forward to going to forever more. No getting laid off there. No retirement there. Everyone will have a special job suited just for you waiting for you.

Oh how I look forward to going home.

How about you?

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version

This is what I believe our home will be like. I can’t even imagine what our mansion Jesus has prepared for us looks like. Just think no mortgage or foreclosure there. No burglars or fires or storms to destroy that home. We will always be safe and secure there.

I have not even got into all the fun we will have playing with all the animals there.

Although we look forward to going to Heaven to be with Jesus when we die, we should work hard to bring as many with us as we can. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh sweet Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our best friend) I do ever so much look forward to that special time spent with You and the rest of Your holy family in Heaven.

I long to sit at your feet and listen to Your delicious words of wisdom.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful career You have planned for me in this fantastic kingdom to serve You.

What a privilege it will be to share a meal with all the saints of Your incredible family.

I wait in eager anticipation in the name of our great, mighty and loving king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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