Turn Away From God’s Love.

SATANS TRAP

 

Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. Jonah 2:8 New International Version

 

Whatever you love more than Jehovah is an idol. Joseph- Anthony: Green

So, what is your idol?

Have you ever heard the saying: “People used to love people and use things. Now, they love things and use people.”

Is that not sad but oh so very true in todays society?

We used to care for our aged parents when they could no longer care for themselves. How many adult children just throw their parent into a seniors home and the only time the parent sees them is when they want money to support their extravagant lifestyle (which is their idol)? Being a volunteer at a seniors home I see this quiet regularly.

 

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those adult children?

When a teacher in Asia the parents only wanted their children to study hard so they could get a good job. Of course when the children got the good job the parents expect them to support them in a lifestyle like kings and queens (which is their idol).

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those parents?

It used to be friends enjoyed each others company and helped each other. Now, you are friends with each other as long as the other individual has something you want. When you no longer need it or cannot get it you drop them like a stone. If they need your help they are a stranger to you. What kind of friendship is that? Is that not making your ego an idol?

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless friends like that?

The current craze is the selfie stick. Where you take your own photo and plaster it all over social media. Is that not making yourself your own idol?

Do you seriously expect Jehovah blessings and love for someone who is obsessed with self love?

The other thing on social media is where they dress animals up like children and talk to them like children. They spend more time and money on their pet than they do Jehovah. Is that pet not an idol?

Do you expect Jehovahs blessing when you love and worship an animal more than you do Him?

Can you think of anything else that can be an idol?

The more you worship things the less you worship Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: please bless me Jehovah-Kanna  (The Lord is Jealous) to always be attentive to anything or anyone I place above You. I would never want to sacrifice our loving relationship with temporary things that can never compare with Your divine love. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who exalted You above all others Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There are Six Killers

POVERTY

There are six killers that destroy society today.

“But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:Your towns and your fields will be cursed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be cursed.
Your children and your crops will be cursed. The offspring of your herds and flocks
will be cursed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be cursed. “The Lord himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. The Lord will afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. Deuteronomy 28:15-22 New International Version

There are six killers that destroy society today.

One: Electronic entertainment.

Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, the internet or mobile phones.

What is wrong is that people spend too much time in front of the idiot box, on the internet and texting each other instead of personal contact with each other.

Instead of spending time doing things together as a family, most people are zombies with their electronics.

Have you ever seen people sitting at a table with each other and spending time texting instead of talking with each other.

I always inform people that if they want to spend time with me, they must turn off their mobiles first.

Religion.

It is not important whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Muslims, or Buddhism they all have the same core values. People need that in order to have the proper values in their lives.

Family.

How many people are spending so much time working that they are neglecting their marriages and children?

Who is better to raise your children: a mother and father or the internet or TV or texting? Instead of sitting around the supper table and talking about each others day, how many families are zoned out watching the idiot box?

I was at an acquaintances house for dinner one time. Everyone was glued to watching a rerun that they knew what it was about after the first scene. When I tried to start a conversation I was hushed.

As well how many people spend one day a week doing thing together as a family? How many people are strangers living in the same house?

Political correctness

There is no absolute right or wrong in society.

Everybody wins a prize. There is no failure permitted.

Consequently there are educated idiots graduating from schools today that are lucky if they know how to tie their shoes.

How many of the great people first suffered failure before they experience success?

Read about Thomas Edison and see how many times he failed before he invented the light bulb.

We need to understand that just as in the past when everybody did as they pleased it lead to the destruction of their society and ultimately to their country.

Look what happened in France in the seventeen hundreds as an example.

Commercialism.

Everywhere we go whether it is on the idiot box, on the mobile, on the bus, on the internet we are bombarded with buy, buy, buy.

How many countries are in debt up to their eyeballs and the people suffer because of greed?

How many people are maxed out on their credit cards because they foolishly though buying the newest toy would bring them happiness and are now slaves paying off their debt?

And of course the number one reason for the doom of any society is when they turn their backs on God.

How can you expect Gods blessings if you do not have an loving obedient relationship with Him?

Prayer: Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) please turn the hearts of the people back to You in order to prevent the doom and destruction of their personal lives, their family lives and their society lives. I humble request this in the name of the King of the most exhaled society, Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Three Attacks.

LORDS STRENGTH

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

In the first attack Satan tempted Jesus’ material needs.

The longest I have fasted was twenty eight days and I can tell you, you become acutely aware of all the fragerant smells of all the food around you.

So Satan tempted Jesus with His hunger.

So too does he tempt us with material things which become things we give in to such as spending too much time working for your house that it takes time away from Bible study and prayer.

 

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”

 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

This is the second attack. The devil will tempt you to do stupid things like maybe go into a dangerous neighborhood alone to share the gospel believing Jehovah will send angels to protect you. If Jesus does not send you there and you go on your own, you are tempting God.

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.  “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”  Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

 

This is the third attack. Satan tempts you to surrender your morals to become popular, to gain prestige and to gain wealth.

From my experience when you make this deal with the Devil you not only surrender your soul, you surrender your heart. In time not only do you lose your popularity, prestige and wealth but you have lost your heart and soul.

Just look at all the former sports stars, TV stars and popular singers of days gone by. Almost all of them are living in abject poverty now.

Do you want to follow them?

From Matthew 4:1-10 New International Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me with the necessary tools to defeat the cunning deceiver Satan when he comes a knocking so as to protect me from his conniving attacks and deception. I strongly request these tools in the name of He who defeated Satan once and for all on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

 

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