Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

H.O.M.E. Is

FACE TO FACE

I am looking forward to being there.

What do you look forward to experiencing when you go home? What do you think Heaven will be like? I look forward to going home.

H=Home is Heaven. It is where we will be with our beloved family and friends and with our most beloved, Jesus, forever. There we will meet new friends and everybody will share joyous meals together. It will not matter your race, if you are tall or short, fat or skinny, boy or girl. There will be no rich or poor there. We will all be in joyful harmony together. No family fights there.

O= Overjoyed to be where we will face no more sorrow or pain. We shall be constantly over filled with joy every moment for eternity. There will be joy being with Jesus. There will be joy being with old and new friends. There will be joy in a truly fulfilling career Jesus has planned just for us.

M=Meditation, where we can truly sit at the feet of Jesus and share in His marvelous wisdom. It will be a never ending education where we will run to class in eager anticipation of drinking in the wisdom of the greatest teacher. Imagine sitting at the feet of Noah and Moses sharing incredible stories with us. There will be no tests we will be graded on because what we eagerly learn will become a part of us.

E=Employment, this where we will all be employed with a specific career that will be fulfilling and we will look forward to going to forever more. No getting laid off there. No retirement there. Everyone will have a special job suited just for you waiting for you.

Oh how I look forward to going home.

How about you?

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 New International Version

This is what I believe our home will be like. I can’t even imagine what our mansion Jesus has prepared for us looks like. Just think no mortgage or foreclosure there. No burglars or fires or storms to destroy that home. We will always be safe and secure there.

I have not even got into all the fun we will have playing with all the animals there.

Although we look forward to going to Heaven to be with Jesus when we die, we should work hard to bring as many with us as we can. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Oh sweet Jesus Pryyand (Jesus our best friend) I do ever so much look forward to that special time spent with You and the rest of Your holy family in Heaven.

I long to sit at your feet and listen to Your delicious words of wisdom.

I can’t wait to see what wonderful career You have planned for me in this fantastic kingdom to serve You.

What a privilege it will be to share a meal with all the saints of Your incredible family.

I wait in eager anticipation in the name of our great, mighty and loving king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

My Precious Quiet Time.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.  Romans 1:20New International Version

 

PAPPAS CHILDREN

I love to walk through a forest with a quiet little stream. It is so soothing to watch the fall leaves dancing in the wind with a multitude of colours like banners waving in a parade. To listen to the sweet memorizing sound of the birds singing with child like joy. As I sit by a gentle little rapids all stress is washed away and a feeling of calm and peace envelope every molecule of my being.  The intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers softly gently flowing up my nostrils and into every fiber of my being.                                                                                                   

A feeling as I am one with the world around me is joined with the sweetness of being at one with my beloved Heavenly Father, my precious King and my wonderful Teacher creates a flow that begins in my heart and  comes exploding out of my mouth : I love You oh great and marvelous Lord. I love You. Thank you for blessing me with revealing just a tiny bit of Your infinite beauty and reassurance that You love me and are with me.                                                                                    

The closer we get to nature, the more Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) reveals Himself to us. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                          

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for the wonderful privilege of spending time with You and enjoying Your wonderful creations together. I joyously praise You in the name of He who taught us the beauty of the flowers in the field Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                             

 

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

Who Are You an Example To?

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. John 13:15New International Version

 

TEAMWORK

 

It is very important in our lives to both have mentors and to be mentors.

 

That is why it is important to always seek council from wise Christian elders. They have walked the path you are travelling and can help you whether it is in your marriage, your job, a relationship, a possible move to another town or part of town or at school or most importantly in our Christian walk.

 

Now it is important to make sure you seek wise Christian council because there are many old fools.

 

Just because they are old does not mean they are wise. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Believe me, I have met many older people I wouldn’t take their directions to the toilet.

 

On the same terms just as you have been mentored so too is it your duty to mentor others. Now maybe you have not been blessed with having a mentor, then does that not make it all the more important to you as a Christian to mentor others as you would have wanted to be mentored (I believe all Christians have been mentored in their Christian walk).

 

Listen to counsel and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter days. Proverbs 19:20 New International Version

 

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) with wise councilors on my journey to Your celestial home You have graciously prepared for Your beloved children. I humbly request this in the name of the greatest councilor Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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