We All Need a Transformation.

jesus makes you into flower

 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I see ads all the time to transform folks. Maybe it is their teeth or their skin to make them look more beautiful on the outside.

We all need a transformation.

But the one we need the most can only come from The Holy Spirit. And, that transformation of course is the transformation of our spirit (not our heart). This is not a one off transformation but a lifetime one. We will be constantly metamorphosing until we reach Heavens Gate. Even then, we will still be changing our hearts and minds under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.

For me, Jehovah has moved in stages just like going to school. Once I have passed grade one then it will be time to move on to grade two. And so on and so on. In forty years I am just past grade four (talk about a slow learner huh?).

There is no failing just repeating the lesson in a different manner until it is ingrained in our mind and spirit. He is patient and teaches us at our own pace.

Attending Jehovah Divine school of Righteousness is a life time commitment. Our graduation ceremonies will take place in Heaven with Jesus Christ handing out the awards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the honour of being enrolled in the most prestigious school ever. Your school of holiness and righteousness. I apologize for the times I was a difficult student. Please bless me with Your ability to be such a magnificent teacher as You to those around me so they can be enrolled in Your awesome school as well. I humbly beseech You in the name of the greatest Teacher to ever bless this planet Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Center Your Mind on Them.

 

Finally,believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. Philippians 4:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Let us take a test okay?

Where do you spend more time: A watching trash on the TV or B watching Christian movies on the internet?

Listening to that rubbish they call music on the radio or listening to and singing along with Christian joyful praise music on the radio?

Which do you spend more time doing: serving self :playing sports, going shopping, or any other activity(there is nothing wrong with these activities unless they are thieves which rob time away from serving Christ) or serving Christ?

Do not sit there and shake your head in agreement and then do nothing about it, make a concerted effort to change your habits.

Of course it is a necessary requirement to go to a make over artist. And, as we all know, The Holy Spirit is the best make over artist. Ask Him for direction in your life to change your habits and then obey His guidance.

This takes time. You are not only be molded into a new creation but you also have to have the filth of the world purged from your mind and from your spirit.

Do not just think about making changes in your life, pray to Jehovah on how to make those changes and then do it. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you El Deah (God of knowledge) for sanctifying me with Your word in every aspect of my life. Thank You Holy Spirit for grace in assisting me to conquer the destructive mentality in me so that I may continue to grow into the cherished child my Beloved Father in Heaven desires me to be. I give all glory unto You in the name of He who is the best remodeler of the soul Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Being Transformed Into

 

And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as our Savior and King, He sends the Holy Spirit to transform us from being a dirty filthy rag into a new beautiful Divine creation.

This does not mean that when we accept Christ there will be a hallelujah moment and then we can continue on as we were before.

It does mean a lifetime commitment unto His will in our lives. It means allowing Him to burn off the dross (bad habits and attitudes which hinder our relationship with Him and our maturity in our Christian walk).

Speaking from experience it is not pleasant but you will praise Him for it every day after its completion. It does not mean we are to sit on our butts and expect the Holy Spirit to do all the work. It does mean a lifetime commitment to making the effort ourselves to become Holy children of God. Many times we will be expected to make the effort by ourselves as we mature because that is a process of maturity as well.

“God invites us to come as we are, not to stay as we are.”Tim Keller

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit M’Kaddess (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with teaching me and helping me to grow into a sanctified child of my Beloved and to lead a life pleasing unto Him. I exalt Thee in the name of He who showed us all how to lead a sanctified life pleasing unto our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Amen

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