To All You Bigheads.

 The Son of Man must [of necessity] suffer many things and be rejected [as the Messiah] by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and must be put to death, and after three days rise [from death to life]. Mark 8:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).

Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.

Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?

Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?

“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts

Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?

I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.

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

How to Spot the Falsies.

RED IN A SEA OF GREEN

One way to spot false teachers is if they are smooth talkers.

Smooth talkers usually dress flashy. They always try to con you into their way of thinking. If you question them they become angry or accuse you of not having the supreme intelligence they have. They try to make you believe they are doing something for your good when in reality they are just conning you. I experienced this a lot. If you try to get them to get it in writing they try the guilt trip with you of :”What is the matter, don’t you trust me?” my reply is: “What’s the matter, why don’t you want to put it in writing if you are so honest?” They quickly leave me alone. There are many variations like aren’t I your friend? If you do not trust me I do not want to deal with you, this is for a limited time only, if you do not take it someone else will.

They are self centered instead of God centered. They like to talk about their accomplishments instead of what God has done through them or for them. Again they are flashy dressers that say look at me. They are greedy. They want money and fame instead of wanting to advance Christs kingdom and helping others. They pull at your strings to try to con you into giving them money to help others when in reality they take most of the money themselves. If you ask them to show you their accountability in writing where the money goes they accuse you of being stingy.

 

They always believe they are right. If you question their interpretation of Scripture they  accuse you of challenging their authority and try to put you on the defensive. I just stick to my guns.  They try to put others down so as to make themselves look good. Boy have I ever met a lot of those. When you try to defend yourself they just try to shout you down.

When you see any of these avoid them like the plague.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please open my eyes to all the wolves in sheeps clothing that lurk around looking for the naive. When I do encounter them please bless me with the wisdom, grace, strength and meekness to defend myself and protect the gullible from their evil jaws. I ask this in the name of He who exposed the wolves when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Are You a Fool?

GUARD YOUR INPUT

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 New International Version

Are you very beautiful?

Do you prance around like a prima donna proud of your beauty?

Was your beauty not a gift from Jehovah?

Do you thank Him for that?

Do you use that talent to give glory to Him instead of giving glory to yourself?                             .

Is that not playing the part of the fool?

Can you blame Him if He takes your beauty from you?

Do you have talent to paint, write or sing?

Do you stand there basking in the limelight instead of giving glory to God and using your God giving talent to serve Him?

Is that not playing the fool?

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) do not allow me to become arrogant and ungrateful for the gifts You have so graciously blessed me with.

Please provide me with the opportunities to use these gifts to bring glory to You.

I humbly request this in the name of He who used His gifts to bring glory to You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

There Are Only Two.

ARROGANCE

For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:16 New King James Version

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18New King James Version

 

There are only two sins and we all have them: pride and lust.

Pride is taking credit for the accomplishments Jehovah has blessed us with. That is very arrogant and He will not tolerate it.

Being haughty means to look down on others because you believe you are superior to them.

 

Would you be haughty towards Christ if He were to physically walk into your world today?

 

Many think not but actually would.

Be careful because your wealth, good looks, physical strength can be taken from you in the blink of and eye.

 

We are all one step from the gutter. Anonymous.

With each one we lust for more of our own glory instead of working for the glory of Christ.

 

There is only one cure: It must be crucified.

This does not entail a physical death but rather a spiritual one.   It will be the most painful experience of your life but on the other side of it you will praise Jehovah every day for it. I certainly do.

It is not quick. Mine lasted a year and many I have spoken with it lasted up to four years.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God of love) for blessing me with teaching me and equipping me to live a live dedicated to serving You and expanding our divine loving relationship. I sing songs of glory to You in the name of the king of love Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

He Conceives Trouble.

SCAMMERS PAY

Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. Psalm 7:4-15 New King James Version

Behold: to observe; look at; see.  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

iniquity: a wicked act or thing, gross injustice  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

Many a times I have encountered scum that think they are so smart. They think they can pull a con job on me and I am stupid enough to fall for it.

To be quite honest, I am very gullible. Most times I am not even aware of what the real motives nor what the consequences are that the Slick Willies are planning for me.

However, you cannot pull a fast one on God. God plans an escape for me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the end the wicked end up being burned by their own wickedness and I escape the fiery wickedness they had planned on me. They have fallen into their own traps. The wicked end up enraged and deeply shamed.

 

Then those around, whom they bragged to laugh at them or in many cases are enraged at me.

 

Do you know why?

Because they see and know they cannot pull that wickedness on me.

Do you think they will learn?

From my experience, no, they just look for easier prey.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for blessing me with Your wise protection from the wicked fools who dare attempt to arrogantly abuse one of Your cherished children. I pray that the wicked learn from Your protection of Your children and  repent and come into Your divine family.I praise You in the name of He who refused to fall for any of the evil ones schemes in the desert Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                           

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

Until Your Last Breath.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 New International Version

ACCEPT HIS CALL INTO HIS LIFETIME SCHOOL AND SERVICE

Have you encountered older Christians who like to brag “I did this for Jesus.” or “I did that for Jesus.”

We do not stop serving our Heavenly king until either He takes us to the other side or until He comes in the final battle to take us to Heaven to serve Him for an eternity.

We do not ever sit on our hands and say I have done my fair share.

Only Christ decides when Your time in service is completed.

Another point is that we of ourselves did nothing. It was what Christ has accomplished through us. We insult Him when we take credit for what He has accomplished in us and through us.

Not my will but Thy will be done my Beloved is the motto of every Christian. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Elyon (The Lord most high) for blessing me with the opportunities to serve You and Your divine skill to provide the tools necessary to accomplish Your holy calling for me life of service. May I always be blessed to serve You until my final breath on this planet. I pray this prayer in the name of He who served You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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