Whoever Chooses to Be.

  So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. James 4:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Remember the old saying: “ Be careful of the friends you choose because you will become like them. “ Well, it is true.

If you choose to be friends with Jesus you will emulate Him in thought word and deed.

And what is Jesus like?

He is a loving God.

So when you become like Him you become a loving man woman or child. You will be filled with Divine love, joy, peace and purpose. Your life will glow with Heavenly love for all to see and that is the greatest witness there can ever be.

If, on the other hand you choose to follow the world ( which is satanic ) you are in reality following satan all the way into Hell.

What type of personality will you have?

Selfishness, self centered, mean, unethical, arrogant, rude and cruel. You will become a creature from Hell ( and I know enough worldly folks to rightly call them a creature from Hell). They are repulsive ( you will draw folks away from you not towards you ) and repugnant (causing intense displeasure, disgust, or resentment ) .

You are Jehovahs enemy.

“Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you…either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature.” ~C.S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand ( God is my friend ) for blessing me with sharing a Heavenly friendship. With me. Everything else pales in comparison to this Divine relationship. I praise You in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

We are All Healers

Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the requirements of the law of Christ [that is, the law of Christian love]. Galatians 6:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We are to help others as we need them to help us. Joseph son of Jehovah

Do you know any seniors ( Christian or otherwise ) that need help cutting their lawns in the summer and shoveling the snow off of their sidewalks and driveways in the winter? Do you see the need and turn a blind eye? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

Do you know a single working mother that needs a babysitter but cannot afford one? Do you offer to watch the children for her if you are able or do you turn a blind eye to that? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

Do you know of someone that has just had surgery and is at home alone? Do you offer to clean their apartment and cook their meals for them or do you turn a blind eye to that? How do you think Jesus feels about that?

If you are looking to serve Christ, begin by looking in your own neighbourhood. Joseph son of Jehovah

Are you trying to carry a heavy burden by yourself when you know Christian brothers and sisters that are willing to help but you are too proud to ask or accept their gracious offer? How do you think Jesus feels about that? After all, did He not require help to carry His cross to die for our sins?

“We are all healers who can reach out and offer health, and we are all patients in constant need of help.” — Henri Nouwen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for always being there to help me and I humbly request that You bless me to be emulating Your gracious love and assistance towards others as You have unto me. I rejoice in this blessing and ask for this blessing in the name of He who alawys took the time to help those who were in need Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How Nourished are You?

 “Blessed [joyful, nourished by God’s goodness] are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness [those who actively seek right standing with God], for they will be [completely] satisfied. Matthew 5:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

How nourished are you?

Just as we require daily physical food to maintain our physical health so too do we need daily spiritual food to nourish our spiritual health.

We will never be completely filled with righteousness. Joseph son of Jehovah

We need, every day, to ask Jehovah to fill us with wisdom on the proper manner in which to walk in righteousness. He will abundantly supply us. Then we need to be obedient and obey His instructions. The fruit of this is being blessed with Heavenly joy. As well it prevents us from deviating from our walk with Christ. This leads to nothing but trouble.

When we walk away from Christ, we walk towards satan. Joseph son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God is our Provider) for always abundantly providing living fruit to nourish and strengthen me with every day. It is the most desired of all of my daily needs and sustenance. I exalt You in the name of He who is the bread of life and He through whom flows the never ending waters of life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do You Adhere To

 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name John 1:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Do you adhere to Christ?

To adhere to means to maintain loyalty and to bind oneself to observance ( adhere to the rules)

Are you loyal unto Christ?

Do you place your allegiance unto Him above your family, career and or possessions? Yes there are rules when you are a child of Jehovah (mainly Gods Law which states we are to do unto others as we would like them to do to us and to not do to others as we do not want them to do to us). Do you do to others as you would like them to do to you? That means to be respectful and to help others when you see they need help ( That does not mean to support those who refuse to take responsibility for their actions and refuse to help themselves. We “ owe “ them nothing ). Do you not do unto others as you do not want them to do to you ( that means no bullying or gossiping, backstabbing or cheating ) ? Do you trust Christ? Do you trust Christ with your finances? When He directs you to give of your finances even though it will hurt do you obey Him? Do you trust Him in your relationships? So say you meet someone you like but He sees what they are really like and directs you to end the relationship, do you trust Him to obey?

Do you rely upon Christ?

Do you daily rely upon Christ for guidance? So say you want a job and a good one is offered to you but you feel Christ saying no, will you walk away from it? Do you rely upon Christ in your interpersonal relationships? So say someone has done you wrong, do you rely upon Christ to give you the power to forgive them? If the abuse is habitual and Christ directs you to walk away from the relationship ( even if it is family ) will you walk away from them? Do you rely upon Him to find the proper spouse for you ( instead of the on line dating service where people can be as phony as a three dollar bill ) And, if He direct you to remain single will you rely upon Him to fill the void a spouse can fill?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for helping me adhere to Your righteous Holy manner in my behaviour in my relationship to You. I exalt You in the name of He whose total manner emulated His complete adherence unto You Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Your strong impenetrable defense

No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy]. 1 Corinthians 10:13

Satan the greatest conner always make poo poo look like sugar. Then when you get addicted to it he tries to convince you that you are not strong enough to resist the temptation.

He is partly right.

Sometimes when temptation comes our way Jehovah will allow to endure it to see how much we have grown ( that is not so much for Him but to show us how weak our strength can be so we do not become arrogant). Sometimes He will deliver us from it to revel to us just how great He is.

The best defence is offence and the best offensive weapon is to know Bible verses and use them to defeat the not so great a deceiver.

“The history of every temptation, and of every sin, is the same; the outward object of attraction, the inward commotion of mind, the increase and triumph of passionate desires, ending in the degradation, slavery, and ruin of the soul.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with Your strong impenetrable defense both in Your Divine word and with Your omnipotent presence to defeat the wily sneak satan when he craftily tempts me. I rejoice in this reassurance in the name of He who used the word to defeat the wicked one in the wilderness during His temptation Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Have the Same Mindset as Christ.

 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus Philippians 2:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is the mindset of Christ?

Yes we are to love one another just as He loves us. We are to help each other as He helps us. We are to be patient with one another as He is patient with us. We are to forgive one another as He forgives us. We are not to allow the wicked to abuse us as He did not allow the wicked to abuse Him. We are to stand up for truth as He stood up for truth. We are to defend those weak as He defended the weak. We are to call out injustice and liars as He called out those perpetrating wicked deeds and liars.

Living the Christian life is hard but its rewards are Heavenly. Joseph son of Jehovah

Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]; Ephesians 5:1The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend ) for blessing me with showing me the proper manner in which to interact with those I encounter on a daily basis. I pray that I emulate my best friend in all my thoughts, words and deeds every day. I praise You ans ask this in Your loving wise name. Amen

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

Book of Wisdom

 The thoughts and purposes of the [consistently] righteous are just (honest, reliable). But the counsels and schemes of the wicked are deceitful Proverbs 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One thing I have learned in my long walk with Christ is that a good name is worth more than a big bank account. There have been times when I was honest even though it cost me a little with local merchants ( Like one time I forgot to pay for an item that cost a dollar and walked two miles back to pay for it. Most folks laughed and thought I was stupid. However, now that merchant always gives me better deals than they do anyone else. Now, they are indignant and ask what makes me so special? ).

The deeds you do today will be rewarded tomorrow. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The other benefit of being honest is that I sleep good at night while the dishonest worry about getting caught ( which they always do ). Most dishonest people suffer numerous health problems and they can all be traced back to stress caused by worry of getting caught and being greedy.

“A godly mind prizes honor above worldly good.” Rembrandt

I know of one man that I asked to help me and he replied that he could not because he did not have gas money to come here to help me and then he went out fishing. Now whenever he tries to scam me ( scamming is where you try to get something from someone without giving anything in return) he is reminded that if he does not have gas money to help me he does not have gas money to scam anything out of me, it drives him nuts.

“All human sin seems so much worse in its consequences than in its intentions.” Reinhold Niebuhr

The greatest reward of being honest is the blessing of becoming closer to my Beloved in Heaven. As a consequence He warns me of those who deal dishonestly.

I have seen many say that they believe that everything that they touch is cursed, but if they reflect back on their life they will see that they were extremely dishonest with others so yes Jehovahs hand is against them. The stupid thing is that they know if they turn from their wicked ways Jehovah will not only stop curing them but will begin to bless them yet they refuse to stop being dishonest.

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” Thomas Jefferson

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori ( the Lord is my Light ) for blessing me with Your light of truth and integrity in my life. It has proven the true manner in which to walk in my daily life. I praise You in the name of the Light of the World Jesus Christ. Amen

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