This Does Not Make Sense.

 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. Psalm 31:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

This does not make sense.

These are the words spoken by every Christian. I can not count the number of times my Beloved ask me to do something that made no sense.

There were the ones He asked me to go up against were more powerful than me and had all the cards stacked in their favour. Except for the winning card of course, Jehovah had that card. Yes I was terrified but obedient. When the time came for the showdown Jehovah blessed me with courage and wisdom that brought the haughty crashing down.

The first few times that happened I was in shock and awe. The more frequent it happens the stronger my faith came in Jehovah the warrior being by my side.

There were many times when I felt my Beloved asking me to make huge changes in my life that were way out of my comfort zone. Yes, I was terrified but obedient. In the end I praise Him every day for that blessing because it made me grow in trust in Him and changed me so much for the better.

Sometimes when we are called to obey, the fear does not subside and we are expected to move against the fear. One must choose to do it afraid.” Elisabeth Elliot

Yes there are many times Jehovah will ask you to do things that make no sense to you but make perfect sense to Him. Obey and watch and experience the amazing things that will happen in your life when you are obedient.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with Your voice gently speaking to me in my daily life and for blessing me with increased trust in You when You ask me to do that which I do not understand. I extol Thee in the name of He who trusted You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

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

How is Your Spiritual Training Going?

 For physical training is of some value, but godliness (spiritual training) is of value in everything and in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

How is your spiritual training going?

If a long distance runner does not practice almost every day he is not able to compete. If instead of practicing and listening to his coaches he spends his time at the bar drinking beer there is no way he can compete in any race and there is certainly no way he will finish it. Everybody watching him will laugh at him.

So too it is with the Christian race.

We need to train every day to get stronger. We train by at the beginning of every day praying.

Praying consists of three parts: To begin with we thank Jehovah for all the blessing He has bestowed upon us both big and small while apologizing for the sins we have committed both big and small.

The second part is to pray for Jehovahs will to be done in our daily lives not our own and for help to accomplish this.

The third part is to be praying for others. Joseph- Anthony: Green

The next part is asking Jehovah to bless us with wisdom while reading His instruction manual for this race, it is called the Bible and obeying what He reveals for us (write it down to contemplate upon it through out the day).

Finally we need to pray that Jehovah blesses us with Godly wise men and women to be our mentors to teach and encourage us in this race ( of course that means we are to be mentors to those who are not as progressed in the race as we are).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for always being with me a listening when I approach You in prayer. I am humbled that one as great as You desires to listen to me and talk with me through constant prayer. I exalt You in the name of He who taught us the best way to pray Jesus Christ. Amen

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

Are You a Covenant of Salt?

 All the offerings of the holy things, which the Israelites offer to the Lord I have given to you and to your sons and your daughters with you as a continual allotment. It is an everlasting covenant of salt [that cannot be dissolved or violated] before the Lord to you and to your descendants with you.” Numbers 18:19 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Are You a Covenant of Salt?

A covenant of salt is where a bride and groom would take salt and put it together in a container and shake it. Their marriage vows could be annulled if they could take back their own salt. This of course was impossible.

Are you a covenant of salt with Christ?

Is your spirit and body mixed with His so intimately that it is impossible to separate them? Before spending a dime does Christ come before self? Do you spend intimate time with Him every day and through out the day? Do you dedicate time to pleasing Him by serving others before you allow for one moment of pleasing self?

This is a true Christian, that his life is intertwined with Christ in though, word and deed. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating a life in me that is intertwined so close with You it is amazing and wonderful. Please bless me to never foolishly attempt to separate me salt form Your Holy salt. I praise You and request this in the name of the most Holy Salt of the earth and Heavens Christ. Jesus Amen.

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

A Sacrifice of Praise and Thanksgiving

 He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me Psalm 50:23 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A sacrifice is an act of offering to a deity something precious.

What precious gift of praise and thanksgiving do you off unto Jehovah when He blesses you?

For me , of course there is the one tenth but if possible that amount is exceeded.

So suppose Jehovah blesses you with a raise, are you willing to give up your daily coffee at the coffee shop for Him as an act of praise and thanksgiving to help with paying for something in service unto Christ cheerfully?

Are you willing to give up watching your favourite TV program say one night a week in service unto Him as an act of praise and thanksgiving to help with paying for something in service unto Christ cheerfully ?

For me I give up my Sunday mornings to take seniors to Sunday Service at a seniors home.

Christ loves a cheerful giver not a grumpy one. Joseph- Anthony: Green

How about you, what do you offer as a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving cheerfully and with grateful thanks?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for faithfully blessing me with resources, opportunity, skill and time to bless others as You daily bless me. I gratefully thank You in the name of Your greatest blessing Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Show You Great and Mighty Things

devine-communion

 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’ Jeremiah 33:3 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

The best education you can get is in the University of Jehovah. Man the courses provided there are unimaginable. One of the benefits of attending this university is that the courses are never ending. Just as you complete one another one begins. Just when you naively belief there is nothing else to learn something pops up that stuns and amazes you.

Yes there are exams but you cannot study for them. Either you have learned them or you have to repeat the course. There is no failing just that you need more tutoring to digest what is being taught.

Of course we have our mentor ( The Holy Spirit ) is on twenty four hour call. He may not answer your call all the time though. That is because He does not want you to get lazy and have Him do all your thinking for you. As you progress at this university you fall deeper and deeper in love with the faculty:

The headmaster is a kindly Father called Jehovah, the Head Teacher is a patient teacher by the name of Jesus Christ and the mentor is truly awesome the manner in which He tutors to each of us individually by the name of The Holy Spirit.

The more you are at this university the more time you desire to talk with these three incredible deans ( some call it prayer).

The admission price is accepting Jesus Christ as your savior, king and best friend. That you as such, have become His bondsman or woman ( which means you freely serve them out of love ). The invitation is open to all, rich and poor, young and old of every nationality.

Why do you not come join us?

The graduation services are held in a beautiful place that will be our eternal home, it is called Heaven.

“What wings are to a bird and sails to a ship, so is prayer to the soul.” Corrie Ten Boom

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with entry into the most amazing school there can every be with the most awesome teachers. Thank you for the free life time enrolment and for the patience with this some times dull witted student. I praise You in the name of He whose blood paid the tuition fee Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not be Conformed.

do-not-allow-them-to-control-you

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. Romans 12:2 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Every day it is getting stronger and stronger, the will of satan upon the world. He is trying to pollute folks minds into believing his depravity that what is wrong is right, like homosexuality and if it feels good do it. It oozes into every crack and nick of society form the poor to the rich. From every nationality and creed.

It is not bravery for Christ that we stand and fight but love for the gullible that are following the dammed into Hell. Joseph- Anthony; Green.

We are not to be conformed to those who are marching into Hell but to be transformed into fierce, brave warriors of Christ that stands up for what is right using the Bible as our sword to slice through the satanic lies ( please do not attempt to use physical force as that plays into satans hands and defeats the purpose).

“The opposite of bravery is not cowardice, but conformity.”  Robert Anthony

Prayer: Please Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) abundantly bless me wisdom ,strength and courage whenever the wicked ones come challenging me of Thy existence and of severing lucifer by spreading lies to pollute unsuspecting innocent minds to steer them away from You and towards Hell. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeated all the minions of lucifer with Thy divine truth Jesus Christ Amen.

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

Through Your Faith.

we-are-purified

You who are being protected and shielded by the power of God through your faith for salvation that is ready to be revealed [for you] in the last time. In this you rejoice greatly, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, which is much more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested and purified by fire, may be found to result in [your] praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:5-7 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you ever watch a blacksmith at work you will see him pull the horseshoe out of the fire and continuously hammer it into shape. Then he puts it into water and the impurities are separated. This is a slow process with this repeated until the horseshoe is complete.

The Holy Spirit does this with the child of Jehovah. He allows us to go through trials and tribulations to burn of the dross ( that which hinders our maturing in Christ ) and to mold us into being the child that Jehovah desires for us to be. It is a slow process which is not pleasant. It can take years ( for me my worst took a year ). This process is repeated for any and all impurities ( like stubbornness and a stiff heart and others ) which hinder our advancement into being a mature Christian. It is a unpleasant experience but at the other end of it we will thank Jehovah ( and the Holy Spirit ) for it every day.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for decimated my wicked debauchery that inhibited my walk with You and then purified me with Thy wondrous love into the cherished child of Your You desired me to be. I extol Thee in the name of He whose sacred blood washes away my filth and makes me clean Jesus Christ. Amen.

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