Do Not Be Afraid of Them.

He said, “Come!” And Peter…walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid. and he began to sink, and he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Holy Bible Amplified Version

When the Lord calls us most times there will be loud mouths that step forward with boisterous talk mocking you in public as well as in private. They will boisterously challenge your calling. Do not be surprised if they call you a fool and insane. The worst offenders of course will be family and friends. Boy did they mock and ridicule me and call me insane.

Do not listen to them or they will sink you. And if you do and you will feel yourself sinking under their waves of criticism and mockery, call out to Christ and He will lift you above those boisterous windbags.

Listen to the Lord and have faith in Him. I did and we accomplished numerous amazing things.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with the strength and faith (trust) to be obedient unto Your calling no matter the loud mouths antagonistic and critical mocking attitude and behaviour towards me when I obey Your calling. I humbly request this in the name of He who was bitterly mocked on the cross by those who refused to believe Your calling unto Him here on planet earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

The Faith of Adherence.

 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still cling to your integrity [and your faith and trust in God, without blaming Him]? Job 2:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If anybody had the right to lose faith in Jehovah it is Job. Everything he had, his wealth family and health while remaining faithful unto Jehovah. Yet, through it all he persevered even though he did not understand while all the tragedy was happening to him.

There have been many times in my walk with Christ when I was suffering and not knowing why it was happening. I called out unto the Lord and He was silent. In the end I just told the Lord that even though it is tough and I do not understand why this is happening my faith in Him and His reason for allowing this was unshakable. It was later that I realized that some of them occurred to strengthen my faith while others were happening to burn off the dross. The final analysis though is that it was always for my own good.

“When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence.” — Matthew Henry

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) that even though many times I do not understand what You are doing or why I have complete faith that You are doing this for my own good because You love me so much. I exalt You for this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

I Am the Only Way.

 Jesus said to him, I am the [only] Way to God and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no negotiation with Jehovah.

I do not care what religion it is they all fall flat on their faces because they refuse to accept Christ as the Saviour and Heavenly King.

As for so the called Christian churches that preach the Santa Claus religion ( just as if you are a good boy or a good girl Santa Claus will bring you presents some so called Christian religions preach that it is by good works that you enter into Heaven. Both are fairy tales) they are living in a fools paradise. All their good works do not matter one iota on judgment day.

It is only by Christs blood, resurrection and our accepting His sacrifice and accepting Him as our saviour that we will be granted entrance into Heaven.

“God never negotiates with men. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross put an end to any kind of negotiations. It is now Christ or nothing. It is now God’s word in its entirety or nothing.” A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wonderful privilege of being Your humble servant here on earth and eventually for eternity in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I extol Thee in thy magnificent name. Amen

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

To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

A Bag with Holes in It.

 “Is it time for you yourselves to live in your [expensive] paneled houses while this house [of the Lord] lies in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, “Consider your ways and thoughtfully reflect on your conduct! You have planted much, but you harvest little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have enough to be intoxicated; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm enough; and he who earns wages earns them just to put them in a bag with holes in it [because God has withheld His blessing].” Haggai 1:3-6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you have a bag with holes in it ( instead of bag insert wallet )?

Could it be because you are so selfish that you earn a penny and spend a dollar ( on yourself of course)? So when you refuse to share your wealth Jehovah allow the devil to tempt you into getting into dept to satisfy your unquenchable desire for more, more, more. Then you are miserable.

Could it be that you plant a lot of seeds to be friends with others while neglecting the crop of daily interaction with Jehovah so you harvest a little from your relationship with Him?

Could it be that in your quest for recognition form others ( self-centeredness- look at me, look at me) that you never get enough and go to foolish and many times dangerous lengths to get noticed by others instead of directing them to Jehovah? As a consequence you are never satisfied. Instead of nurturing a loving relationship with Jehovah you nurture your own ego and as a result you are cold with little or no love in your life. As a result the temple of Jehovah that resides within you is in ruins.

Prayer: I humbly pray my loving Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) that You daily guide this modest servant of Your to constantly build upon and glorify Your Holy Temple so that it is a beacon to those walking in the cold dark world to You amazing Temple. I sincerely request this in the name of He who shines the most brilliantly of Your holy temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do They Hate You?

  Blessed [morally courageous and spiritually alive with life-joy in God’s goodness] are you when people hate you, and exclude you [from their fellowship], and insult you, and scorn your name as evil because of [your association with] the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for your reward in heaven is great [absolutely inexhaustible]; for their fathers used to treat the prophets in the same way. Luke 6:22-23 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Since becoming a Christian do you find many in your family actually hate you?

I have, it is common. Most of them will not even talk with me anymore and cannot stand to be around me. I am not a Bible thumper and shove the Bible in their faces. Yes I will correct them when they try to get me to participate in their wickedness with Bible verses and explain to them what it means. I do not condemn them, I leave that up to the Holy Spirit. I just explain to them why I will not walk that walk with them when they are selfish, self centered, conniving, and gossiping. They walk in the world and when they see me walk in righteousness they hate me because my walk convicts them of their wickedness.

The same is said with those with whom I chummed around with. They will make spiteful remarks towards me and look for any little thing to criticize me and be judgmental towards me. They will cruelly mock ( make fun of me ) me.

As they did to Christ so too will they do unto those that belong to Christ. Joseph son of Jehovah

The thing is though that since walking in Christ there is a whole lot less stress and emptiness in my life. It is filled with Divine love, joy and peace, which is something sorely lacking in their lives. A prophet is, in its simplest form, one who speaks the Word of God to the world around them.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi ( Lord my Refuge ) for blessing me with a Holy Tabernacle to take refuge in while the wicked ones are assaulting me because of my walk with You. I extol Thee in the name of He who was constantly attacked during His walk here on earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Fall for Their Scams.

the-devious-reward

 You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires [which are characteristic]of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what it natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. John 8:44 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The longer we live the more we will encounter the wicked snakes in the grass, they are manipulators. They will try to enslave you with tactics like: “ If you love me you will ___ ” or “If you love me you will allow me to ___________ “ or If you are my friends you will ____ “ or “ If you want more hours or a pay raise you will_______” Do not fall for their trap. Do not fall for their scams.

Personally I turn the tables on them and ask them : “ If you love me you will _____” and the you will entails them doing something for me first or respecting my opinion.

If they ask if I do not trust them my reply is that “ Trust is earned not given. What have you done to earn my trust? “

It shuts them up.

When they make exorbitant promises that I know is impossible for them to keep if I do something for them first my reply is that seeing as how they came to me first I will allow them the privilege of exhibiting to everyone their honesty and honour in fulfilling their promise first. They hate me for that but it causes a lot less grief in my life. They are the children of Satan and we are to avoid them at all possible costs.

“Satan promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honor, and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure, and pays with pain; he promises profit, and pays with loss, he promises life, and pays with death. But God pays as he promises; all his payments are made in pure gold.” — Thomas Brooks

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord my Deliverer) for blessing me with the wisdom, craftiness, meekness and humbleness to defeat the wicked enemy when they attempt to enslave me with their evil schemes. I exalt Thee in the name of He whose wisdom defeated satan in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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