I Have Seen It.

I have seen it, seen the demons dragging away the dammed.

One evening while watching a segment about the Hong Kong riots on TV, the police were dragging away a young woman protester. The look in her eyes was one of pure terror. She knew, being a woman, what to expect yet there was no escape for her poor dammed soul. This is not to cast the police as demons but rather a metaphor for what will happen upon the day of judgment to the wicked.

So too will it be on the day of judgment. The look of helpless terror in the dammed eyes. There will be no escaping the clutches of the angels that are casting them into a place of eternal agony, torment and hopelessness. Woe be unto them.

FURNACE OF HELL

The smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever, and they will have no relief day or night Revelation 14:11 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

That image of the young woman haunted me for a few days and I wept over her. If we weep for those that are unknown to us how much more studious must we be to do everything in our power to prevent those we love from being cast into this horrid place of eternal damnation.

To say those we know around us are going to Hell without doing anything to prevent it is perhaps the worst sin a Christian can commit. Joseph a son of Jehovah

What must you do to prevent such a dastardly calamity you ask?

To begin with, live the Christian life with joy that come with communion with Christ, Christian compassion, strong Christian morals and quiet peace that can only be attained with the presence of the Holy Spirit.

NOT SEGREGATED

Then, when the curious ask what blesses us with such admirable disposition, we can gladly share our own testimony of our walk with Christ.

A Christian should be a walking, talking testimonial beam of Heavenly light of Christ that is sweet and appealing to those stumbling about in the darkness on their way to Hell. Joseph a son of Jehovah

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

PRAYER: Oh my loving Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:2 The LORD the Judge) seeing the terror and knowing the eternal horror that awaits the dammed please bless me with every opportunity and every skill to guide the lost from the trail of the dammed and onto the road to Heaven. I humbly request this in the name of He whose heart shall be pierced like a hot knife going through it as He condemns the dammed Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do You Give it Back?

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 “Blessed be God . . ., who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God” (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

Those of us who have been around the bush long enough have been through the meat grinder once or twice haven’t we. In those times of tribulation hasn’t God comforted you and encouraged you?

Hasn’t He in His divine love healed you?

So, where is your gratitude?

When someone does something nice for you, shouldn’t you return the favor?

When you see someone suffering shouldn’t you go to them and emulate what God did for you?

You know, the most painful and horrible experience in my life was being in an abusive relationship and the healing that took place afterwards.

In my teaching days I witnessed a lot of hurt and pain because of students being in an abusive situation. It broke my heart. I would sit them down and share my experience with them. Because I had walked that mile in their shoes they listened to me. In the end it helped guide many of them to Jesus.

Please for the love of Christ and your fellow men, when you see someone suffering reach  out to them.

Not only can it be a comforting and encouraging experience to them, it can also be an opportunity to share Jesus with them. This in turn may help bring them into our Holy family.

If you are experiencing a time of great difficulty and or pain and are reading this, take heart. God is not stupid. Perhaps He is allowing this experience to train you to help others in the future.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) – Is 49:26 for blessing me with Your strength, comfort and encouragement when I endured the fiery times of trouble, anguish and confusion. Please bless me with the opportunity to pay it forward to someone who is experiencing the fire storms of life to help them and to guide them to the greatest Strengthener of all, You. In the name of He who was strong enough to endure the agony of the cross for His love of me, Jesus Christ I humbly ask. AMEN

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is a Good Thing.

trust in God

 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. ROMANS 8:28 Amplified Bible

This verse should be the greatest comforter, encourager and strengthener in every Christian life when going through trials and tribulations, sorrow and snare.

“How can you say that?” you may ask.

Think about it.

When we are going through a job loss and we do not know where the money is going to come in to pay the bills and it seems as if God is no where to be seen. That is a good thing. It may not seem like it at the time but through this process you will: A: learn to pray sincerely and deeply like you never have before. In this process you draw closer to Jehovah, which is His purpose. And that is a good thing.

B: it will teach you to depend upon Him instead of yourself or your company or anything else that will fail you. And that is a good thing.

C: this will teach you to love, respect and adore our heavenly Father. And that is a good thing.

The same thing will occur in every avenue of your life if you are a Christian.

Through your hard times you will learn to depend upon Jehovahs unending resources, appreciate Him more and draw every deeper into a Divine loving relationship with Him.

And that is a good thing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing me with Your divine wisdom, providence and assurance in every aspect of my life. The best part of this blessing is in developing an amazing loving relationship with you. I exalt You in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross and resurrection made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You Can’t, He Can

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling. Jude 24 New King James Version                                                                                                    

We all have them.                                                                                                

We have inherited them from our parents.                                                        

Sinful disposition traits are handed down from one generation to the next. This is why it is important to trace your ancestors. Doing so helps you understand why you are the way you are.                                                       

So if say you have relatives in your family tree that were alcoholics you would know it to be very wise to abstain from drinking.                                      

As well it is also of extreme importance to pass this knowledge onto your children to help them avoid much grief and destruction in their lives.                                                                                                                    

Now there are some bad traits that try as we may we can never conquer them.                                                                                                                    

So say you are short tempered it does not matter how hard you try to control your temper you will always be short tempered.                               

All is not lost however.                                                                                     

We are blessed with the gift of the power of the Holy Spirit when we accept Christ as our savior and surrender these weaknesses to Him in complete faith that He shall conquer them.

                                                                      DELIVERANCE COMES FROM THE LORD                                                         

As well He will bless you with knowledge of what triggers your temper to go off and the necessary steps to avoid these ruinous situations. There will come occasions when you cannot escape them. Then it is time to run to the safety of the Holy Spirit. Call upon Him quickly with complete faith He shall deliver you and He will.                                                    

I speak from personal experience on both of these weaknesses.                   

There were inherited weaknesses that were destroying my life that I had no power over. It was only when I completely surrendered them to Christ that I was saved. 

There are ruinous dispositions that require daily prayer to prevent me from disastrous situation that the Holy Spirit either prevent from occurring or guided me through them when they do occur.                      

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your Devine strength to eternally conquer the fleshly weaknesses in my life that was spiritually destroying me and making my life a living Hell. Thank you for blessing me with wisdom and strength on how to keep them at bay. I exalt You in the name of Your strong Son my Beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have You Been Told to Get Out?

Exodus 12 and Joshua 6

Just as the Lord instructed the Israelites to coat their doorposts and they would not suffer the fate of the Egyptians so to was Rahab instructed to tie a red cord outside her window of her apartment, which was on the wall, at Jericho and her family would be spared.

Do you see any similarities there?

Has there been any time in your life that destruction was coming and  the Lord is instructing you, you must do something in order to escape doom?

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

For me, it was articles on a web site that exposed a country that I was dwelling that certain doom was coming and it was time to get out. Boy am I glad I was obedient.

If you neglect to obey these warnings you do so at your own cost.

The Israelites that refused to listen when warned about the Babylonian destruction coming and then the ones before the destruction by the Romans paid a very heavy price.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for Your mercy in warning me numerous times to evacuate from some place or situation to avoid certain calamity. I laud You for this amazing grace in the name of He whose sacrifice ultimately blesses us from eternal destruction Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

My Greatest Education.

” But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”James 3:17  New International Version

The greatest education is not to be found in some Ivy League school not a famous technical school. It is to be found at one single source, The Holy Bible. Oh you can become an egg head, but still be a loser in life. What we sorely need to be taught in all our schools throughout the world is good morals. The only place to find that is in the Bible. You may go to school to learn economics but do you have the knowledge between what is right and what is greed. Do you have the scruples not to make bad deals which may cheat seniors out of their retirement funds? You need the knowledge of the Bible in every aspect of your life, from choosing a friend, to choosing a mate to choosing the right choices in your business dealings.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

      
If I could choose between a knowledge of the Bible and a college education, I would readily choose the knowledge of the Bible.William Lyon Phelps   

I have been to many schools where a useful education was gained that is carried with me to this day. But, the greatest education I ever received was in studying the Bible. You know something great about the Bible? You can read and hear a Bible verse many times and it means nothing to you. Then, when it is needed in your life the verse will jump out at you and its secret revealed to you to help you deal with a situation I your life where you need its wisdom.      

If we lack wisdom, God’s wisdom, we need only ask of Him and He will grant it when we ask in faith, according to His promise in James 1:5.

It is the greatest teaching tool in life. Use it generously. It is Gods gift to you. It is free and is useful in every aspect of your life. It will prevent a lot of troubles, heal you and bless you with peace during the troubling storms.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing us with the best guidance book that is chock full of the best life advice there ever was. In the name of the greatest teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

What are You going to Do?

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33 New King James Version                                                                                                        

 Worry is a thin stream of fear that trickles through the mind, which, if encouraged, will cut a channel so wide that all other thoughts will be drained out. Author Unknown

Are you in a financial pickle? What are you going to do? Are you going to go to a financial advisor (some have given me some very bad advice and I wonder if they have your best interest at heart or the financial institution they work for as well as their bonuses?) Do they not offer so much advice that many times it is confusing to know the right course to take? Does this not cause fear, worry and physical health problems?                                                                                 

Why not go to the financial advisor which is the smartest of all and truly has you best interests at heart?                                                                            

His name is Jehovah. He loves you, cares about you and will never lead you wrong. It has worked for me and has brought about a lot of peace into my life as a consequence. The same holds true for every aspect of your life.                

                                                 GTTING CLOSE WITH GOD                                                                                          

There are two catches however.                                                                      

One is obedience.                                                                                                  

When Jehovah speaks to you, you are to be obedient unto His voice. Many times what He has advised me to do seemed crazy but at the other end of it I saw His infinite wisdom and was overjoyed that I obeyed Him. He can and will speak to you through Bible reading, talking with Godly councilors, listening to Christian sermons and through other means as well.                                                                                                                 

There is no sense asking for Jehovahs advice of you are not willing to listen to it or obey it. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                        

The second part is just as hard and that is to have faith in His leading. Many times He leads you into unfamiliar territory and it is pretty scary. Even us seasoned vets face the challenges of faith in our walks.                  

There are times when all of our faith shall be challenged no matter how long we have walked with the Master and there is not just one challenge but many on our walk to Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green                             

Prayer:   Thank you Jehovah-Jireh  (God is our Provider) for always blessing me with the correct path to take in all aspects of life. The added blessing of this is an amazing peace that envelopes my life. I praise you in the name of He who always provided for His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                           

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