When the Devil Tries to Bring Me Down.

COMFORT IN HIS WORD

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1 New King James Version

 

News Flash: as we age our bodies break down until the final curtain is drawn in death.

 

One thing I have noticed amongst seniors in their waning years is a lot of bitterness because of their past.

 

 

There is no time like the present to confess our wrong doings and try to make things right.

 

Yet, I find that many stubbornly refuse.  Although I feel sorry for them, it is something they must confront and deal with. I can help them if they so desire but they must make the effort.

 

As many age the devil will try to taunt them with their past sins and convince them that they are filth in the eyes of Jehovah.

 

If you have repented and made things right do not believe his lies and merely inform him that you know Jesus has forgiven you and has prepared a Heavenly home for you. Then ask the devil to repent lest his eternal home be a very hot one.

 

When the devil tries to bring me down because of my past I just remind him of where I am going in the future. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for being faithful to Your promise to forgive us when we repent and welcome us to a Heavednly home You have faithfully prepared for us when we come to Your Divine Kingdom. I adore You in the name of the king whom I deeply love Jesus Christ. Amen.

Are You Prepared to Pay the Cost?

HARRASED

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. Matthew 19:29 New King James Version Wealth comes at a cost.

 

Are you prepared to pay the cost for Heavens treasures? Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Following Christ always comes at a cost. Many times it means being rejected by your family.

 

 

That hurts, believe me I know.

 

Many times following Christ will mean sacrificing your house to travel abroad or to another city to serve in difficult circumstances.

 

I know, I sacrificed leaving the comfort of country to travel to a country where I did not know the language and lived under very difficult primitive circumstances.

 

Now this is why  I strongly do not believe in short term missions and here are the reasons why:

 

When I was teaching in China it took me six months before some students were interested in developing a relationship with Christ. Believe me they had many questions

 

If you are there only for a month or two even if they are interested who is going to teach them after you are gone?

 

 

Who is going to lay the foundation?

 

Two: If you go to a third world county and build some homes for poor people : the people do not know how to take care of them and in a year the house looks like a shanty shack, two the neighbours will become jealous which causes fights

 

Three many times they just want money or to improve their English skills. If you have an interpreter they tell the people what the government want to hear and not what you are telling them, you need to know the language and customs.

 

But your reward in return will be a crown presented to you by Christ in Heaven.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Adonai (God is sovereign) for the promised blessing of receiving a rich reward fro Your precious son upon my arrival in Heaven because of my sacrifice to You. I also thank you my love because in these trying circumstances it has brought me closer to You. I praise You in the name of He who left His father in His home to come to serve us Jesus Christ. Amen.

Which Level Will You Be At?

CANNOT OUTRUN

“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.  But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.  And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.  But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.” Matthew 11:21-24 New King James Version

This is a clear statement by Christ that there are different levels of Hell.

If you have ever read The Apocalypse of Peter and the Book of Enoch you will see what awaits those who are cast into Hell.

Another good read is SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD, The Eternity of Hell Torments by Jonathan Edwards  and Hell  By D. L. Mood

It only makes sense.

Why would someone who just stole candy from a store serve the same sentence as someone who robbed a bank and killed someone?

Make no mistake about it, Hell is real and it is not a very nice place to go to. Once in there, there is no getting out and it is for an eternity.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me with the right words to convey to others the importance of being obedient children of Yours so as to avoid Your terrible wrath and be cast into Hell. In the name of my loving King who is the Supreme judge Jesus Christ I humbly beseech You. Amen.

A Fool is Quick to Quarrel.

ARROGANCE

It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel. Proverbs 20:3 New International Version

Have you ever met those who love to start a fight. They think it is funny to watch you get angry.

Whenever I encounter such perverts I just inform them I do waste my time talking with fools and you are a fool and then walk away. It gets the point across and they watch themselves around me and most times go looking for easier victims.

Whenever they try to befriend me I politely inform them I am not interested as they are nothing but trouble.

 

If I have to work with them and they refuse to work together I just do the work myself and discreetly inform the supervisor of the problem and inform them I refuse to work with the troublemakers again.  They usually do not last long at any jobs for this reason.

As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. Proverbs 26:21 New International Version

They are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions. 1 Timothy 6:4 New International Version

As for the Gossiping Gerties whenever they come around and try to gossip about someone I just ask them what they say about me when I am not around and then get out a mp3 or something to record the conversation. When they ask me what I am doing I inform them I am recording the conversation to share with the person being talked about so as there is no misunderstanding of what they said (that way they cannot deny they said it). They quickly shut up and leave me alone. It may mean that I do not talk with many but that is okay as it avoids a lot of un-necessary fights.

And you know what?

As they age they become more and more isolated. That is usually when they become homebodies and addicted to TV and shopping and gambling.

I have seen it with a lot of seniors.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) rescue me from those whose tongues are like vipers (full of poison) and guide my words and actions to convict them of their sin so as to lead to repentance. I humbly pray this in the name of He who did not tolerate such vipers Jesus Christ. Amen.
