On the Alter Of

And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness]Ephesians 4:27 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Unfortunately, one of my bad dispositions is letting go of a grudge. Being more mature I have learned to place it at the feet of Jesus. He heals the wound and avenges the wrong doer.

Many times however, it is played out in my head where they are shamed while yours truly look like the hero. This childish fantasy is surely played out in all of our heads. Rather than dwell on the wound others have inflicted from personal experience, it is better to listen to old hymns that praise Jehovah. This fills the heart with joy rather than anger and bitterness.

Now of course the wound may need to be healed by going to righteous Christian councilors to help deal with the lingering pain.

Those that nurture the grudge are cultivating weeds of hate and anger which suffocate the beautiful plants of love and joy. They become mean, bitter angry old men and women in their later years.

Of course this devastating disease cause great harm to both the mental and physical body.

It also affects the relationship with Christ. Because He is love and there is hate and anger in the heart the two are not comparable.

I have seen more than a few who have sacrificed their physical and mental health on the alter of bitterness and grudges. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: PleaseYAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal the cuts both superficial and the gougingly deep ones that have been inflicted upon me.

Please empower me to concentrate on all Your loving attributes instead of foolishly wasting my time rerunning the event over in my head where I glorify myself while shaming the offender. That is such a wast of time and is very childish.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who heals all wounds Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Destroying Your Heart.

A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing, But a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Instead of being broken hearted when someone does me wrong I call Jehovah to heal me. He always blessed me with peace and love. It does not matter what another has done to me or said about me when I call upon my Beloved He always answers me with love and peace.

Yes they are forgiven because that is part of the healing process.

It is a well known medical fact that those that hold on to grudges and hurt have it causing them medical problems like ulcers and heart problems.

“Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart.”Unknown

Then, yes I have the right, which I exercise, to pass judgment upon the perpetrators. Not because I want revenge but in the process of the punishment they will repent and we can be reconciled both in our relationship and in theirs with Jehovah.

If they refuse to repent the Lords hand will be heavy upon them until they reach the point of no return and are destroyed because of their arrogance and meanness of heart.

Therefore [the crushing weight of] his disaster will come suddenly upon him; Instantly he will be broken, and there will be no healing or remedy [because he has no heart for God]. Proverbs 6:15 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please YAHWEH-Ropheka (God our healer) heal me from any anger, bitterness or hatred towards any who have wronged me so that I may continue to grow in our Divinely loving relationship. For those who have unfairly wronged me place Your hand heavy upon them and let them know this is because they need to reconcile and repent. I humbly ask this in the name of He who forgave those who nailed Him to a cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Outside of Christ.

                                         

Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Which Will do You Have?

Serve the Lord with gladness and delight. Psalm 100:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The world says not Thy will but my will be done. The Christian says not my will but Thy will be done. Joseph son of Jehovah

Your will leads to Hell for only Christ holds the keys to Heavens gate. Those who only serve self will be forbidden entrance into a place of love, joy and peace. Their rewards will be eternal damnation of hate, sorrow and torment. The self serving shall be cast into an eternal Hell of damnation surrounded by wicked ones crying in a chorus of utter agony ,their hearts filled with burning coals of torment and their masters shall be cruel wicked demons which shall torment them in eternal darkness.

Jehovahs will leads to the bright light of Heaven gate. Only Christs free will servants are permitted entrance to His Divine paradise He has predestined for us. There you will be welcomed with open loving arms and a crown made especially for you by Christ. There you will be surrounded by love of our master and our fellow servants. Your heart shall continuously be overflowing with joyous praise towards our Beloved. Peace shall envelope your heart like a warm blanket warms the body on a cold night.

Which will do you have? Be careful your eternity depends upon it.

The world says look at what I have done. The Christian says Look how Jehovah has blessed me. Joseph son of Jehovah

Being self centred only leads to a polluted river of selfishness of which the self centered must drink. It is the poison which kills love and nurtures hatred, greed, jealousy and bitterness. They shall drink copious amounts of this vile liquid. It shall kill their soul with a slow bitter death.

The more grateful the Christian is towards His loving Heavenly Father, His Divine Heavenly King and his amazing Holy Teacher the more they shall reward him with wisdom of their character and the manner in which the Christian shall enter into the Holiest of Holies ( a place of close Divine shared love with the Trinity and the Christian). This shall spur the Christian on to obey His Master more and more and shall cause His heart to sing songs of praise and glory to the giver of these blessings. It is all his mind and spirit craves for. The world is but rubbish compared to the glory our Beloveds love towards us.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the opportunity to serve such a magnificent King such as You. May my motto always be: ‘Not my will but Thy will be done oh my King. Show me where You want me to go, teach me what You want me to do and to say that all glory, honour and praise may be given unto You.’. I praise You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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