The Question is, Who Listens?

gods-word

 Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you to fear the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and worship Him with obedience]. Psalm 34:11 Amplified Bible

No, that is not your conscience speaking to you, that is the Holy Spirit.

The devil is an expert at twisting the truth into a lie so if you depend upon your “conscience” you are easy prey for Him.

Then how will you know if it is the Holy Spirit or the devil?

The answer is in developing a deep personal relationship with Jehovah by reading your Bible and obeying what it says.

From my personal experience when I am reading the Bible and a verse jumps out at me, that is the Holy Spirit speaking to me. I stop reading and pray for enlightenment. Then he guide me to understanding the Bible verse in context to what He is saying about my life.

Another way is to listen to good sermon like on sermonaudio and reading good Christian books like can be found on sites like goodread and https://www.gutenberg.org (personally my preference is for the old classics). Of course we should also have godly Christian councilors.

The problem I have sadly witnessed too frequently is that even when others know Jehovah is speaking to them the deliberately chose to ignore Him because he is telling them something they do not want to hear. They want their way, not Jehovahs. That is a sure recipe for disaster. Then when catastrophes occur they go cry babying to Jehovah and ask why He is doing this to them.

God is speaking to all of us, all the time. The question is not, to whom does God talk? The question is, who listens? Neale Donald Walsch

Are you experiencing difficulties in your life right now?

Are you listening to Jehovah as He is speaking to you?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with patiently teaching me to be wise, gracious, humble and meek like my Beloved King Jesus. Thank you for the tools You have blessed me with to receive an ever deepening of these blessings. I exalt You in the name of the wisest Rabbi of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Hears You.

O You who hear prayer. Psalm 65:2 New King James Version

When you pray you are not praying to a dead idol made of wood or metal or some make believe fellow like Santa Claus or to dead souls, like the saints. That is foolishness.

Instead with reverence, love and sincerity pray to the living God whose throne is in Heaven.

He hears your cry when suffering sorrow. He blesses you with answers that give reassurance and healing.

He hears your cry when you need help. He answers with protection and resources to conquer your adversary.

He hears your cry when you are alone and feel dejected. He blesses you with filling you with His Divine love, comfort and encouragement. He hears your cry when you need guidance in your life. He blesses you with resources and guidance councilors to show you the path you must take.

He hears your cry when you are remorseful He not only forgives you but guides you in the proper manner to reconcile with the one you have done wrong. This blesses you with peace in your spirit.

He hears your cry when you need to learn something. He blesses you with wise teachers and mentors that reveal the knowledge you need.    And of course it is with pure delight he hears your song of praise for His love. To Him that is the sweetest song that ever exists. Of course when we are in a loving relationship we delight in sharing with the one we love how much we love them.

He cherishes your prayer of thank you when He blesses you. That is the respectful thing to do is it not? When you help someone does it not feel good when they thank you? How much more than should we thank our Beloved Father in Heaven when He blesses us?

GOD LOVES YOU

You do not need to make an appointment and he is never too busy. Jehovah is always there, Jehovah always cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When you continuously continue in a weakness (like being short tempered) He does not become exasperated with you and give up on you. When you honesty are repentant and humbly ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and thousand times a thousand.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for being such a loving Father to this cherished child of Yours. Thank you for Your blessings of Your Hoy love, strength, wisdom, comfort and encouragement as Your never end provisions. I praise You in the name of Your most special blessing Your Holy Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I will Teach You.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:11 New King James Version

In this context fear is not to be afraid but rather to respect.

Yes it is important for parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles and teachers to teach young children about Jehovah.

 

But, do not forget that new comers to the family of Jehovah are like children and not mature. They need mentors to guide them along the path of righteousness both by example and by teaching. It will require a lot of patience as many of them will bombard you with incessant questions. That is another reason why there should be more than one teacher so they do not get exhausted.

Teaching is not just from the Bible but also from personal experience. I believe the personal experience to be the strongest form of teaching. Just as in the New Testament times they met in brothers and sisters houses so should they today.

Just as they shared meals together back then so too is it just as important today (Imagine having a pot luck dinner with brothers and sisters from different cultures. Not only do you have fellowship and Bible study but you are exposed to various different culinary delights from around the world.

CHRIST'S FAMILY

Imagine learning a different language and different songs of praise and thanksgiving to different styles of music from all over the world? Hearing their stories of how they came to Christ and what He has done in and through their lives may inspire and strengthen you as well.

Take turns going to each others homes if possible.

Being in the modern world of course there is online Bible study groups (Skype is free). You can study with brothers and sisters from all over the world. I have and found it very enlightening.  An added benefit is when you study with someone from a different culture and country you can learn another language and varied history.

It does not matter if a baby or a seasoned vet we can all learn from each other, strengthen each other, support each other and encourage each other.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with numerous opportunities to enjoy fellowship, brotherly love and friendship with numerous brothers and sisters in my neighbourhood and around the world. I give thanks in the name of my best friend 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 Book That Answers

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

It is all in there

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of Godmay be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Here’s the book that answers all you questions.

You have a question about life?

This book answers all your questions. About friends, marriage, raising children, investing, health, anger, sadness, worry. You name it and this book has the answers. It’s called of course, the Bible.

Any event that you need guidance for, may I suggest you look it up in a Bible concordance, the answer is there.

A wise investment is spending time reading this book every day, I prefer first thing in the morning. Then, just talk to God like He is your best friend and confidante, which He is. When He answers your question, thank Him for it and obey His divine instruction. He will never lead you wrong. It may not be what you want to hear, but it is what is best. For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

It will guide you through your dark days.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalms 119:105

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (Holy Spirit my teacher) for being so patient and wise in teaching me the wisdom on the best instruction manual for life, Gods own word. I give thanks in the name of the best teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

If You Are Not Looking

HUNGERY FOR GOD

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9 New International Version

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

How can you find God?

When you read your Bible and daily devotionals like : Our Daily Bread and Acts International by Dick Innes, when you listen to sermons online like sermonsaudio.com, when you talk with other Christians and listen to Christian music like on JoyFmonline.org or Prasie1065.com God will speak to you.

When He speaks to you listen to Him, talk with Him about like He is your best friend. Then obey what He is guiding you to do. Then you will develop the most amazing love affair. You will enjoy spending time with Him

He walks with me, and He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own; And the joys we share as we tarry there None other has ever known.C. Austin Miles

Prayer: Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) please guide me how to experience the most astounding love affair there ever could be, the one with You. I humbly request this in Your beloved name Amen.

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

So Small but So Big

 

WORSHIP

Have you ever laid on a carpet of grass on a warm summers eve and gazed into the night sky

Try as man may with his fireworks , it can not match GODS nightly lightshow

As you lay there admiring the magnatude of the beautiy of it all have you ever felt small and igsignificant

I have

Then a thought gently caresses my mind

It was GOD who made all those stars

HE is so awsome

and you know what?

HE loves us

A feeling of happiness and peace envelopes me

I smile and softly say

Thank you my wonderful Father
