His Education can Wipe Out His Education.

HIS INSTRUCTION

 Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moses got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock. When the girls returned to Reuel their father, he asked them, “Why have you returned so early today?” They answered, “An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock.” “And where is he?” Reuel asked his daughters. “Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat.” Moses agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. Exodus 2:16-21 New International Version

Moses was raised in Pharaoh’s court and learnt the religion and customs of Egypt which was satanic. After running for his life he encountered a priest of Jehovah. He spent the next forty years learning from him.

That is the way with us.

It does not matter if you were involved with a satanic cult, with boozers and partiers or corporate greed, when you become a Christian that knowledge will be over ridden by the Holy Spirit in you giving you knowledge and ability to live a Godly life. It will be a lifetime of learning and improving. You will fall but the Holy Spirit will give you the strength and ability to get back up again on your walk to Heaven.

“Fall seven times, stand up eight.” — Japanese Proverb

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with the wisdom to walk away from a wicked lifestyle towards a righteous lifestyle which is the superior lifestyle. Thank you for not condemning me when I occasionally stumble and fall. Thank you for picking me back up and continue to lead me down the trail to our Heavenly home. I praise You in the name of the most exalent teacher of all Jesus Christ. AMEN.

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

Spiritual Training for Christians.

chief-duty

 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 Amplified Bible

How many of us go to they gym or pool or jog every day to keep our bodies in shape?

A more important question is how many of us are faithful in our daily spiritual exercise?

Here is a good program you might like to try: Spiritual Push Ups: every morning, throughout the day and every evening before bed push your hands up to heaven in praise and thanks for all Jehovahs abundant blessings he has showered on you.

Running: Run to Jehovah during every crisis big or small. The stop take a some deep breathes to clear the mind. Then as he speaks to you open the Spiritual nutrition every Christian requires every day (the Holy Bible). Listen and obey what is being revealed to you.

Swim in the Pool: Take a few laps every morning and during breaks in the never ending pool of wisdom, comfort and strength,(your Holy Bible). Your warm up before jumping in is humbly requesting our Spiritual trainer (the Holy Spirit) guides you to where He wants to speak with you. Then open your Bible to where you feel His guiding you and take a few laps. Some times it is easy and smooth water (Him reassuring you of Divine love, comfort and peace), Some times it is rough waters (where he is convicting you of something that needs fixing in your life).

Doing this regime faithfully every day is guaranteed to build you into a spiritually strong Christian.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Tsori – Lord my Strength for blessing me with a daily spiritual strength training program that builds me up to be a strong warrior against the wicked ones army. I praise You in the name of the King of Your Heavenly army Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do not fall for the masquerade.

NO DOMINION

And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 New International Version

This is why it is important to read our Bible, spend time in prayer and spend time fellow shipping with other believers.

Satan will come to us as many masquerades. He may come to you as one of these deceivers who preach the gospel of prosperity. Give your life to Jesus and He will give you everything you desire.

Nothing is further from the truth.

A Christian life is a life of sacrifice and one that concentrates more upon receiving spiritual wealth in Christ that in material gains.

He may come to you in the form of someone who is controlling and informs you, you have committed an unforgivable sin and the only way out is to follow their cult. When we repent with a sincere heart we are forgiven, not by what someone says but by the blood of Jesus.

That is why we need our daily nourishment of Bible reading to gain knowledge and fellowship with both other brothers and sisters and daily communion with Jehovah God. By doing this we will be aware of the wicked ones masquerade and be able to defend ourselves from the attacks and to protect other innocent victims that the wicked one is preying upon.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for blessing me with wisdom to defend myself from the wicked ones destructive schemes and with the power to defeat Him. Thank you for blessing me with Your Divine protection when I am weak and gullible. I extol You in the name of He whose death and resurrection defeated the wicked one for eternity Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

That isn’t the end of it.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you …Philippians 2:12-13 Holy Bible King James Bible

Once we have accepted Jesus that isn’t the end of it. Going to church once a week isn’t the end of it.

No, brothers and sisters salvation is not a one off encounter. It is a weekly, a daily, an hourly and indeed a moment by moment event. We must surrender all aspects of our lives to Christ in order to maintain our salvation. If we don’t it may happen as slow as molasses or it may be as fast and powerful as an avalanche. One thing is certain though, we WILL, lose our salvation when it is not directed and controlled by Christ. Fear and trembling is referring to awe and respect. We should be in awe of Gods love for us and respect His decisions on what is right for us. Let His thoughts direct every aspect of our lives.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:17, Holy Bible New International Version                                
   

They are not only jewels of wisdom, but daily guidance references as well. 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in  the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 Holy Bible the new international version  

Prayer: Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) thank you for your gracious gift of salvation. Please help me to surrender every aspect to your intelligent guidance in my life. In the name of the consummate councilor Jesus Christ. Amen                                                            

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

Why Ask if You Don’t Believe?

 

FALL COLOURS ALONG COUNTRY TRAIL

 

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6 New King James Version

Have you ever asked Jehovah for wisdom?

For me it was going into service for Him.

I wanted to go to Central America because I did missionary work in Mexico and loved it.

Jehovah however had other ideas. He wanted me to go to China. When I first put my resume on the internet after completing a T.E.S.O.L. Course to teach English I fully expected a contract in Central America. The only offers received however were from China. One in particular stood out. I really didn’t want to go to China being afraid of what would happen to a Christian in a communist country. The feeling however was very strong and off I went having faith that this was Jesus’ answer to where He
wanted me to serve Him. I have been all over China for eight years now faithfully serving the Lord. Although it has been difficult I am exceedingly glad that huge leap of faith has been taken. Not many have come to Jesus through my sharing of the Gospel, but even one is important to Jesus.

Believing in the future takes faith. … We cannot function effectively without a belief in that which does not exist. … You believe in tomorrow; you believe in progress Erwin Raphael McManus

Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for guiding me to where you know I can be of the best service to You. In the name of the greatest path finder Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

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

Made Them Male and Female.

DO NOT BE AFRAID

<!--
    @page { margin: 2cm }

But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ Mark 10:6 Holy Bible, New International Version

In God we know.

In the homosexual community there is confusion.

We as Christians know we are a male or female because we know the truth of which sex God made us and are humble enough to accept it.

The homosexual community is filled with pride and sows confusion. They spread lies to confuse children like they do not know what sex they are. They spread lies like the homosexual lifestyle is normal (if this is true then why are most of the ones with syphilis, gonorrhea and aids homosexuals? Why are so many pedophiles homosexuals? Do you call this normal?) These lies are spread by Satan and those who follow him into Hell. Perhaps this is why the homosexual community so venomously, constantly, viciously attacks Christians.

With Christians not only are we not deceived by their wicked lies but we expose them as is our duty. We are to do so humbly, respectfully, wisely and meekly.

The first and major step in our battle with the satanic forces is to go to Jehovah in prayer.

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 Holy Bible, New King James Version

Do not expect those who worship this filthy wickedness to embrace the truth but rather expect a vicious battle. Does this battle not need to be fought the hardest in our schools to protect our children?

May I suggest you read United Nations Covenant on Social, Economic and Cultural Rights as well as United Nations Universal Rights of the Individual Citizen and see if they have the right to shove it down our throats? Fight legally using these two important documents.

“Persecution for righteousness’ sake is what every child of God must expect.” Charles Simeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) bless me with Your brilliant light to slice through the thick cloud of wicked darkness that plagues our families, communities and nations in these perilous times. Please bless me with gracefulness and meekfulness when encountering the ignorant while shining Your Divine light of truth in this dark world. I humbly ask this in the name of He who is the light of the Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I will Teach You.

Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:11 New King James Version

In this context fear is not to be afraid but rather to respect.

Yes it is important for parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles and teachers to teach young children about Jehovah.

 

But, do not forget that new comers to the family of Jehovah are like children and not mature. They need mentors to guide them along the path of righteousness both by example and by teaching. It will require a lot of patience as many of them will bombard you with incessant questions. That is another reason why there should be more than one teacher so they do not get exhausted.

Teaching is not just from the Bible but also from personal experience. I believe the personal experience to be the strongest form of teaching. Just as in the New Testament times they met in brothers and sisters houses so should they today.

Just as they shared meals together back then so too is it just as important today (Imagine having a pot luck dinner with brothers and sisters from different cultures. Not only do you have fellowship and Bible study but you are exposed to various different culinary delights from around the world.

CHRIST'S FAMILY

Imagine learning a different language and different songs of praise and thanksgiving to different styles of music from all over the world? Hearing their stories of how they came to Christ and what He has done in and through their lives may inspire and strengthen you as well.

Take turns going to each others homes if possible.

Being in the modern world of course there is online Bible study groups (Skype is free). You can study with brothers and sisters from all over the world. I have and found it very enlightening.  An added benefit is when you study with someone from a different culture and country you can learn another language and varied history.

It does not matter if a baby or a seasoned vet we can all learn from each other, strengthen each other, support each other and encourage each other.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand- God is my friend for blessing me with numerous opportunities to enjoy fellowship, brotherly love and friendship with numerous brothers and sisters in my neighbourhood and around the world. I give thanks in the name of my best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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