What is the Differance?

 

Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. John 14:27 Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the differance?

The peace Jesus blesses us with is that we have a loving Father in Heaven that cares about us and cares for us. No matter how fierce the storms we know He is walking through them with us. It can never be taken from us.

The peace the world looks for is being financially secure. That can be taken from you in a moment with a job loss or bankruptcy. A house, which can be destroyed by fire or natural disaster. Our health, which can be taken from us with one diagnosis from the doctor. Our wits which can be taken from us in an accident or with something like Alzheimer Disease. And of course what good does all this material wealth do for us when we age and our bodies and minds break down, when all of our loved ones and friends have either deserted as we live out our final days in a seniors home where each moment is a living hell of loneliness and sadness?

With us Christians we know Jesus will never desert us and always loves and comforts us.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

What good does this material wealth do you as you are terrified as you are drawing our final breath and are going into the unknown (but in reality you know you are going into Hell)?

Christians are blessed with peace in our final breath with the knowledge that our Loving Father will send an angel to us to guide us to our Heavenly home while those in the world are terrified as they know there will be an angel to drag them to the gates of Hell and throw them into eternal damnation and torment.

Doing a lot of volunteer work at a seniors home and watching my parents generation in their elder years, I have seen both sides of this coin and know it to be true.

When we live moment by moment in Christs love, that is our golden years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with peace through all my trials sorrows and tribulations. It is not only a calming peace and comforting peace but a peace that blesses with strength to not only endure but to prosper. I exalt 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.

I Lose but I Win

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord Isaiah 1:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every time I have gotten into debate with Jehovah I lose but I win.

I debate with Him my wants, many times even using Bible scripture to back up my point of view. He gently but persistently uses different Bible scriptures to see things in a completely different way.

I lose my fleshly desires but win in obediently surrendering unto His will which is the best for me.

As well I am blessed with new insight into my Beloved and a new way of looking at things.

The reward for this is bringing me into a deeper loving relationship with my Heavenly Beloved.

As well He shows me the rewards for being obedient both spiritually and materially that far surpass my fleshly desires. To the world this is foolishness, stupid and down right insane. To those of us who walk close with Christ it makes perfect sense.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with being so patient with me when I am stubborn and slow to grasp what You are trying to teach me. Thank You that when I submit unto Your wise guidance it is always for my best. I praise You in the name of the wisest Teacher Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

My Daily Spiritual Feast

To know [skillful and godly] wisdom and instruction; To discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight. To receive instruction in wise behavior and the discipline of wise thoughtfulness, Righteousness, justice, and integrity. Proverbs 1:1-3 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every day I enjoy a nutritional feast that prepares me for what ever encounters may come my way during the course of the day.

For breakfast I listen to thirty minutes of inspirational and instructional scriptures and Christian quotes. For an additional part of the meal there is twenty minutes of reading Christian literature.

For lunch there is fifteen minutes reading from the Book of Psalms.

For supper I listen to or watch online sermons and for a bed time snack I again listen to thirty minutes of inspirational and instructional scriptures and Christian quotes.

Instead of watching the rubbish on TV and the lies that are mockingly passed of as news broadcasts why not try these meals instead.

Instead of listening to the filth that is disgustingly passed of as music why not try listening to positive Christian music, especially the old hymns instead.

See the change that evolves in your disposition with in one month.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating in my mind, heart and spirit a child that pleases You. For educating me in the proper manner in which to live so as to be wise and avoid the many pitfalls and traps that come my way. This results in a life filled with wisdom, strength and peace no matter what the evil ones through at me. I exalt You in the name of the wisest there ever was, is and will be Jesus Christ. Amen

Duty or Obligation?

But if a widow has children or grandchildren [who are adults], see to it that these first learn to show great respect to their own family [as their religious duty and natural obligation], and to compensate their parents or grandparents [for their upbringing]; for this is acceptable and pleasing in the sight of God. 1 Timothy 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I am a live in caregiver for my elderly mother.

Every month she extravagantly gives money to her elder son and grand daughter, even though they do not life a finger to help with the yard work, house work or care of mom.

I do all the work with no help but she gives miserly to me.

One day we had a big fight where I told her to tell them to get their lazy butts down here and help out. I was fed up and ready to leave. I prayed in my tent (the only place where I can get peace) for guidance on where to go.

The Lord gave a one word reply: STAY.

I decided  to stay but that I was going to go on strike until there was a change around here and that mom starts paying me for my work so that I can build a nest egg for when she passes on I will not be left empty handed.

Jehovah asked me a three word question: Duty or obligation?

Duty is an act of love while obligation is an exchange of goods. I chose duty unto my Jehovah and my mother. Jehovah questioned me if I trusted Him to always provide for me or if I chose to trust in a bank account?

Obviously I chose Him.

In the course of the next three days He kept on reassuring me through Bible verses and daily Christian devotionals sent to my email that not only will He always provide for me but that I shall be abundantly rewarded for my service unto Him.

Now I could care less about the inequality in the blood family because I know that my Heavenly family shall always stand beside me and richly reward me.

Prayer: Please Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) bless me to always keep my mind and heart concentrated upon fulfilling my duty to my Heavenly King no matter how foolish it looks to the world. I know in my heart of heart that just doing so brings joy to You and that is the most important wealth in my life . I am also assured of Your Divine care for my in my service to you and that is the best investment of all. I thank You in Your awesome name. Amen.

Why Did You Say It?

 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life and his words of wisdom are a source of blessing, But the mouth of the wicked conceals violence and evil. Proverbs 10:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It may be the truth but why did you say it?

I have heard many spiteful folks say mean and cruel things to someone out of a sadistic pleasure to intentionally hurt them. In their defence to prevent retribution they say: “ Well it is the truth you know.” These pitiful creatures are not so mature as to take criticism whether lovingly or hatefully aimed at them.

Before you say something critical towards anyone remember: Why am I saying it?

Is it out of spite or is it to correct an error in their lives.

Is this the right place and time? I find a quiet place one on one is the best place for this discussion.

Am I qualified to speak on the subject? For example how can a single soul give council to a married one?

And finally, the most important aspect: will it bring glory to Christ? Will your Christian behavior drive people to Christ or away from Him?

“Truth is not a virtue unless it is given with love!” — Pete Welsh

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) always guide my words to be those of love and virtue not hate and mean spiritedness so that they may bring healing, wisdom and strength to those that hear them. May my words emulate You my love. I humbly request this in the name of He who always spoke words of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Faith of Adherence.

 Then his wife said to him, “Do you still cling to your integrity [and your faith and trust in God, without blaming Him]? Job 2:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

If anybody had the right to lose faith in Jehovah it is Job. Everything he had, his wealth family and health while remaining faithful unto Jehovah. Yet, through it all he persevered even though he did not understand while all the tragedy was happening to him.

There have been many times in my walk with Christ when I was suffering and not knowing why it was happening. I called out unto the Lord and He was silent. In the end I just told the Lord that even though it is tough and I do not understand why this is happening my faith in Him and His reason for allowing this was unshakable. It was later that I realized that some of them occurred to strengthen my faith while others were happening to burn off the dross. The final analysis though is that it was always for my own good.

“When I cannot enjoy the faith of assurance, I live by the faith of adherence.” — Matthew Henry

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) that even though many times I do not understand what You are doing or why I have complete faith that You are doing this for my own good because You love me so much. I exalt You for this blessing in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

The First and Most Important Part

But as for us, we will bless and affectionately and gratefully praise the Lord From this time forth and forever. Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!).Psalm 115:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

In my morning prayers the first and most important part of it is saying thank you to my Beloved Father, King and Holy Teacher (the Holy Spirit).

You may not feel like being thankful because you are experiencing hard times but you should be grateful for them because it is in the hard times that we grow closer to Jehovah and we grow the most in our maturity.

All throughout the day prayers of gratitude are offered for the numerous blessings both big and small that Jehovah showers upon me.

At the end of the day the first part of the prayer is saying thank you for all the blessings He has generously blessed me with through out the day.

The end result of this is a deeper loving relationship with my Beloved and a greater gratitude for His loving disposition towards me. That creates a more loving, grateful and cheerful heart in my daily life.

The most important part of prayer is that of gratitude. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“God is good, he cares, forgives, loves us at all times. Surely we must always thank him for what he does.” — Nancy Irene

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for Your amazing abundant love that nourishes my spirit every day. I exalt You in the name of my Heavenly King who preformed the most amazing act of love for me on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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