The Christian Creed P L O

                                     

 “You will pray to Him, and He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. Job 22:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Why do you ask if you do not desire to obey?

So many folks turn to Jehovah to solve their problems. They want Him to tell them what they want to hear, not what they need to hear.

So we will say someone is asking Jehovah for help with their finances and He informs them to stop wasting money buying expensive coffee in coffee shops and they will not only have enough money to pay their bills but will also be able to save some as well. They ignore His advice and then cry because they cannot pay their bills and ask why He has not helped them.

It is plain stupidity.

If you really wish for Jehovah to help in your life you must alter it in the manner in which He guides you or your are wasting your time as well as His.

“We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another.” — William Law

Pray We must pray for wisdom in regards to our problem

Listen We must listen to His voice

Obey We must have faith in Him and obey His guidance, even when it does not agree with what our desires are or if it does not make sense to us. Following this method has greatly improved my life in every aspect, mental, physical and spiritual. It will yours as well. I do not promise Jehovah does and He has 100 % success rate.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for the wonderful privileged of obeying my Kings instructions because I know You love me and only want the best for me. I exalt You in Your magnificent name. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

I would Not Look at You.

 Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts (armies) lives, before whom I stand, were it not that I have regard for Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you nor see you [king of Israel]. 2 Kings 3:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Sometimes it is because of the righteous that the wicked are not punished (at that moment) but they will be punished in Jehovah’s way and in Him time.

Notice that it is because the king of Judah was an obedient servant of Jehovah that the Holy man spoke.

Many times the wicked will receive guidance from the righteous because of their association with a righteous man or woman. They come for advice because of what they want to hear not what they need to hear. When what they need to hear is told to them they hate the messenger and will stubbornly refuse the Godly advice given unto them. The whole meeting is a waste of their time and the man or woman of Gods time. Because they refuse to listen to the Godly advice they meet their doom.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with softly speaking to my heart not to waste my times with the wicked ones who blatantly reject you and walk in the path of wickedness. It saves me so much frustration and sorrow. I extol Thee in the name of He who walks away from those who refuse to open the door of their hearts when He comes a knocking Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

I Trust in the Name Of.

 Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

All of my major failures in life occurred because I trusted in my own wisdom ( which really is foolishness unto Jehovah). Oh there were councillors that offered advice to me but I never took the time to consult Jehovah as to whether their advice was wise or foolish. The final decision was mine to make and mine alone. This caused a lot of hardship grief and suffering on my behalf and sometimes others suffered because of it as well.

Now, after decades ( talk about a slow learner huh) of experience walking down life’s road the ;lessons learned have been to always, no matter how big or small take it to Jehovah before taking any action. On numerous occasions His advice seemed contrary to what made sense to me and it was very challenging to follow His lead. In the end when contemplating it I saw many pitfalls avoided and hidden opportunities produce an abundant fruit.

Sadly, I see too much in todays society where they are teaching children satans lie that you are in control of your own destiny (truth be told that lie has always been out there, it was there when I was a teen as well). They leave Jehovah completely out of the equation.

Some trust in ________ and some in _______ but I trust in the name of the LORD our God, Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is Righteousness) Joseph a son of Jehova

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with a Heavenly school to daily attend and an awesome Teacher that is my mentor for life. I exalt You in the name of the greatest Rabboni Jesus Christ.

Amen May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

While the Wicked are in My Presence.

DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONTROL YOU

I said, “ I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will muzzle my mouth While the wicked are in my presence.” Psalm 39:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is great advice because the wicked love to trap you in your words and misquote you to start fights and then sit back and laugh.

I have encountered many who have a conversation with me about someone else only to take what I said and twist it around when they relay it to the person talked about. The purpose of this is to cause a fight which satisfies their perverted pleasure.

I have learned the hard way that when someone gossips about someone to me I just ask them a simple question which ends the filth right there and there : “ And what do you say about me when I am not around ? “ They have a look of shock and the conversation is abruptly ended.

Another thing I like to do is get a pen and paper and start to write down what they are saying. When they ask me what I am doing my reply is that I am documenting what they are saying so as not to misquote them if the other person comes to me about what was said. They squirm like a worm on a hot frying pan.

And finally try this one : “ It has nothing to do with me . “

I like to live by the saying : “ Be quick to listen and slow to speak. “ it keeps me out of a lot of trouble.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with Your Divine wisdom to keep my mouth shut around the wicked ones. In this way You have delivered me from their wicked schemes. I praise You in the name of He who refused to be trapped by Satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ . Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

Are You Wax or Are You Clay?

josephs-quotes-live-for-christ

 

“The same sun that melts wax hardens clay.” In the same way God’s discipline hardens some folk and they become bitter; in others it produces gentleness, a loving spirit, growth and maturity. God’s will is the latter but the choice is ours. Stuart Briscoe

 “Blessed is the one whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he also binds up; he injures, but his hands also heal. Job 5:16-18

Just as a parent disciplines their children when they are naughty, so too does Jehovah discipline us when we are going astray.

Now are you going to be like wax and melt under Jesus’ discipline which will allow Him to remold you into what you should be?

Most times it is our behavior that needs adjusting.

On the other hand are you going to be arrogant and stubborn like a spoiled brat and say:” I do not care what you want God, this is what I want!!”

Are you not becoming hard like clay in the sun?

Be warned.

When Jehovah disciplines us it is because He knows what is best for us.

So perhaps we are doing something we shouldn’t and He is disciplining us.

He will only go so far and if we refuse to listen to Him say okay this is what you want; this is what you are going to get.

Look out.

Because, you will find that what you though was pleasurable will turn into a living Hell.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (Jehovah our creator) create in me a heart that is open to Your wise guidance and discipline. I respectfully request this in the name of He who was obedient to You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Counsel and Understanding are His.

GODS ASSURANCE

 “To God belong wisdom and power;  counsel and understanding are his. Job 12:13 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go for counseling?

Some go to psychiatrists but they receive their flawed understanding from man. How many of them deal with your problems by pushing drugs on you?

I prefer to go to Jesus. The wonderful thing about Jesus is not only His infinite wisdom and power but because He suffered as we have He has been there and done it He understands everything we endure. Perhaps that is why He is called a wonderful councillor. Now He may guide you to qualified Christian counsellors or through His word and power along with His wisdom He may assist you on His own. I was blessed that He provided me with both.

Some go to these questionable counsellors you see on TV. But can they provide you with the wisdom and power that Christ can or do they go for TV ratings and your pocket book?

Some go to self help books but again, can they and do they give you individual counselling? Do they know you intimately like Jesus does? Do they love you like Jesus does? Can they bless you with power like Christ does?

Whenever I have a problem I always go to Jesus and He has a hundred per cent successes rate with me.

God delights to meet the faith of one who looks up to Him and says,“Lord, You know that I cannot do this—but I believe that You can!” –Amy Carmichael

How about you, where do you go for the best counselling?

Almighty God, who hast promised to hear the petitions of those who ask in thy Son’s Name: We beseech thee mercifully to incline thine ear to us who have now made our prayers and supplications unto thee; and grant that those things which we have asked faithfully according to thy will, may be obtained effectually, to the relief of our necessity, and to the setting forth of thy glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with lighting the way of life You have chosen for me to travel and for Your amazing wisdom and guidance to prudently resolve all the problems that darken my life. I extol Thee in the name of He whose light guides us to You and our Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen.

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