Do You Notice What Jesus Said?

 And he fell to the ground and heard a voice [from heaven] saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting and oppressing Me?” Acts 9:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you notice what Jesus said?

He did not say why are you persecuting Christians.

He did not say why are you persecuting my servants. He did not say why are you persecuting my friends.

He specifically asked Saul why Saul was persecuting Him.

When anyone persecutes a Christian for their walk with Christ take assurance that Jesus takes it very personally.

When you read about Jehovahs curses He always curses seven time worse. So when anyone persecutes, mistreats or oppresses a Christian it is guaranteed by Jehovah promise that His vengeance shall return upon their heads seven times worse.

That should make us rejoice that justice is done on our behalf right?

Wrong.

Reading our Bibles we discover Jehovahs justice is a terrible thing to be subjected to. Therefore, if we have love for others in our hearts, as we should, we should be weeping at what is coming our perpetrators way and pray that the Holy Spirit guides them unto repentance so as to avoid Jehovahs horrible justice.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) that You will deliver true justice to my antagonists and those who abuse me. There is no plea bargaining nor parole in Your supreme court. I do pray though, that through this justice it brings them unto repentance. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in the name of the Supreme Judge on Judgement Day Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

You are Not To.

 You will be like God, knowing [the difference between] good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 Holy Bible Amplified Version

You are not to behave like Jehovah and believe that you have the power to influence anybody to do your will.

Rather you are to exhibit (by Jehovahs grace) a Christ like character unto everyone (especially your family) and allow the Holy Spirit to transform them.

Now He may transform them into something you disagree with but you must be obedient unto His choice.

So say you desire for your child to grow up to be a teacher and Jehovah desires them to be a horticulturist, you must not hinder the Holy Spirit but must encourage your child to follow the path Jehovah has chosen for them to live.

Believe me, when I was a child and a teen everybody in my family had their own ideas of what profession they wanted me to follow. This only left me feeling confused and frustrated, especially since nobody listened to me).

Nobody in the family imagined in their wildest dreams what paths Jehovah has led me down (after I surrendered my will to His Divine will and guidance).

In following His predestined path for me we (the Holy Spirit and me working together as a team) have done amazing things which were beyond everybody’s imagination.

We are to live the example of a Christ centered life unto others and step back and allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jesus Christ Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me with a humble heart that follows Your example to be humble and meek so as to encourage others to come unto You and prevent me from being arrogant and rude so as to drive others away from You. I meekly request this in Your loving name. Amen.

Neither Should We.

 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In this situation Samuel saw big strong young men but Jehovah saw what was in their hearts. Samuel would never have chosen the runt of the litter (David).

Later on when a loud mouth (Goliath) challenged them and mocked their God (Jehovah) those big strong boys cowered for forty days.

When the runt of the litter (David) saw and heard it, he immediately took action , slew the big mouth and brought glory to Jehovah. He had no sword nor shield but an intense belief in Jehovahs providence.

All the while his wimpy (You know, the big strong brothers) tried to dissuade him and even mocked him.

That is, until David triumphed over the other big mouth ( Goliath ).

Read it for yourself in 1 Samuel 17: 1-50

Jehovah does not look at the candy bar wrapper (the outside or our bodies) and neither should we. Rather He looks at the inside (our spirits) and so should we. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do not be pressured by the outward appearance of anyone whether it be physical beauty, material wealth or intellect but rather be drawn to those whose hearts are joined together with Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees for blessing me with revealing what truly lies within the hearts of folks so as to not be deceived by the scammers but to see the beauty of the lovely ones. Please continue this blessing so as I may be rewarded with loving relationships and protected from vile ones. I sincerely request this in the name of He who saw what was in His disciples hearts even when everyone else just saw them as smelling ignorant fishermen Jesus Christ. Amen

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

A Posture of Defiance.

But the God who holds in His hand your breath of life and your ways you have not honored and glorified [but have dishonored and defied]. Daniel 5:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is the old: “You do not tell me what I can do or what I cannot do.” That is what intentional sin is. That is arrogant and proud. It is also stupid.

Jehovah only lays out the groundwork for life for us. He is not some dictator in the sky but a loving Father that only wants the best for us.

So, just as a good parent tells their children they must not eat too much candy or they will get sick so too does Jehovah guide us on what not to do.

Just as a good parent tells their children to eat their vegetables because it is good for their health so too does Jehovah tell us what is the right thing to do for our own good.

When you refuse to do as Jehovah directs you to do there will be consequences, not by His hand but by your own arrogance and stupidity.

He will only tolerate such behaviour for so long and then He will walk away from you. When that happens look out because nothing but trouble and hard times are coming your way with the ultimate consequence being eternal damnation in Hell.

“Sin is not an unfortunate slip or a regrettable act; it is a posture of defiance against a holy God.” — Max Lucado

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive unto Your wise voice so that I am a loving obedient child unto You. I know that Your instruction is for my own good. I humbly request this in the name of Your Holy Son whom was always attentive and obedient unto Your voice Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

So Many Things are Happening.

Please read Exodus chapters 13- 14

So many things are happening here in these chapter that are of great importance to us in our coming to Christ.

The first thing is that just as Pharaoh was greatly angered that he lost his slaves, so too will satan be angered that he has lost his slave when we come to Christ.

Just as Pharaoh came hotly after his lost slaves to destroy them so too will satan and his minions come hotly after a baby Christian to destroy them when they give their lives unto Christ.

Just as the Israelites were helpless and terrified upon seeing this army that was greater in number and strength than they so too will a baby Christian be terrified when they see or feel the strength and numbers of satans minions as they pursue them.

Just as Jehovah provided a leader to help the Israelites escape their tormentors so too will Jehovah provide a strong leader to guide you to safety from satan and his minions.

Just as the Israelites had to step out in faith at the improbable way of delivery from Pharoah and his army so too must the baby Christian step out in faith to escape from satan and his minions.

Just as when the Israelites were safely on the other side Jehovah caused the waves to come crashing down and obliterate Pharoah and his army so too will the baby Christian witness the destruction of satan and his minions.

Just as the Israelites were not to look back after crossing over neither is the baby Christian to look back nor return to their land of oppression and slavery.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for defeating the demons and the wicked ones when they hotly pursued me to destroy our new found loving relationship.

Thank you for comforting me and assuring me when the wicked ones seemed more numerous and stronger than me when they attacked me.          

Thank you for blessing me with showing me the way of escape from the devils army when they came marching out in battle against me.

Thank you for destroying the satans army and the numerous wicked ones when they tried to pursue me to destroy me.

Thank you that because of these numerous experiences me faith, respect and admiration and love for You has grown expediently.

Thank you that after experiencing Your Heavenly world the fleshly world holds no desire for me.

I praise You in the name of my Beloved King to whom I am greatly honoured to belong to Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Knows.

 

Declaring the end and the result from the beginning Isaiah 46:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do not worry, Jehovah knew these things would happen from the beginning of time. He knows everything.

The difference is that when we obey His commands He knows the blessings He will generously shower upon us. He knows the hard times we will encounter so He knows the strength, wisdom, guidance and support we will need and bountifully provides for us. It makes Him very joyful to help and share with the children He adores so much.

When we are disobedient unto Him He knows the pain and sorrow it will bring to us. No, He will not cause bad things to happen to us because He is a loving God. However He allows us to reap the rewards for our disobedience. This causes Him to weep bitterly ( bitterly means to weep with a lot of pain).

A wise man obeys Jehovahs commands and is rewarded accordingly. A fool scoffs at Jehovahs commands and reaps the consequences. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Rohi ( Jesus is our Divine Shepherd ) for blessing me with Your firm, steady hand through the path of life You have wisely chosen for me. I exalt Thee in the name of He who is the path to Shepherds me all the way to Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We All Suffer It.

You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your lust goes unfulfilled;so you murder. You are envious and cannot obtain [the object of your envy]; so you fight and battle. James 4:2 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer it.

It is a thief, it steals our joy and contentment. It comes in two names that walk hand in hand in a destructive walk in our hearts. It makes us filthy. It is called jealousy and it companions name is envy.

It is only natural to experience jealousy when we see someone excel at something we work hard at but cannot compare. When they are praised for their work the thief called jealousy creeps into our hearts. Jehovah reveals how delighted He is with us in our Divine walk with Him. Jehovahs love causes the wicked beast of jealousy to flee like a rat with the light shone on it.

We all experience envy whether it is someones good looks, prestige or wealth. That is when the Christian meditates upon Jehovahs Divine love for us and companionship with us. It fills our hearts with love, joy and peace. This causes the wicked beast of envy to flee like a rat with the light shone upon it.

Jealousy says, “I want what you have.”

Envy says, “If I can’t have what you have, then I don’t want you to have it.” Envy rejoices at others’ failures.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with Your Divine peace and love to share with the world when they are living a pitiful cold life without You. I exalt You in the name of He who is the epitome of love Jesus Christ. Amen

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