Is Life and Peace.

 

                                          

Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well being that comes from walking with God, both now and forever]. Romans 8:6 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You cannot serve both the world and Jehovah.

When you serve the world you are serving yourself. This only leads to catastrophe in your body, in your mind and in your spirit. Because you are selfish you refuse to listen to righteous wisdom because that prevents you from being selfish. This means you are going to make plentiful bad decisions in your life for which you are going to suffer.

When you go after the flesh, you destroy the spirit. Joseph- Anthony: Green

On the other hand when we submit to Jehovahs instruction for our lives we are blessed with bountiful blessings of peace, love, joy, security 0f Jehovahs presence and guidance in your life) and strong spiritual and mental health

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) that even though there are many brutal battles going on in the world around me, You have sheltered me from the majority of them like a hen shelters her chicks.

With the ones that I must battle with You provide strength for ultimate victory. Through all of them You amply supply me with peace, joy, love and security.

I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen

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

But for Scars.

                                                                    

And if [we are His] children, [then we are His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His spiritual blessing and inheritance], if indeed we share in His suffering so that we may also share in His glory. Romans 8:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When in a boxing match the opponent will always land a few shots, many times leaving scars for the rest of your life.

So too it is with the Christians battle.

Make no doubt about it we are in a constant battle when we become Jehovahs children.

Yes we are in continuous battle with satan and his minions but we are also in ceaseless battle against society (more so in the west than in communist countries from my experience). The anti-Christ that goes by the label of liberals are really anti-Christs in their every belief. By anti- Christ it means they are against the morals set down by Jehovah and by default by Christ. Many times they will leave deep scars from battles we both win and lose.

The most severe battles of course are within our own families. They know us best so they know how to cut us deep and many do so with complete gusto. They will cut the deepest.

I have met many who have gone through seminary that are more in line with satan than with Christ and know little more than theology and nothing of having a loving relationship with Christ.

I see many who serve themselves by pretending to serve Christ, this is especially true with missionaries. They are there more to glorify themselves than to share the gospel. And, with many missionaries I have met, they live off of others by pretending to be serving Christ.

“God will not look you over for medals, degrees, or diplomas, but for scars.” Elbert Hubbard

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord my King Forever) for blessing me with the gift of suffering for You as You suffered for me. I know that when You see these scars You shall look at them, smile at me and say the words I long to here from Thy precious lips: “Well done good and faithful servant.” I give thanks for this grace in Your suffering name. Amen

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