Who Better is There Than

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Psalm 25:14-15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

A covenant is an agreement between two people (in this case between Jehovah and us). It is an unbroken promise.

Jehovah teaches us to be the closest of best friends with Him.

Close friends share the good times and the bad times together. Jehovah is there to enjoy the good times with us and to encourage us through the hard times.

Close friends confidently confide with each other their deepest secrets. We can confidently confide in Jehovah and He never blabs it all over town. He loves to confide in us.

Close friends watch out for each other. Now it is impossible for us to watch out for Jehovah but we can watch out for His other children around us. He is always watching out for us. He never sleeps nor is too busy or on vacation and unavailable.

Close friends are always there to help each other. We cannot help Jehovah personally but we can help out those in His community as an act of helping Him out. Jehovah is always there to help us not matter the problem.

Close friends will fight to the death to protect each other. We cannot fight to protect Jehovah but we can fight to protect His children suffering because of injustice (this need not be confined to third world countries but look around us today in industrialized countries and we see the wicked ones constantly at battle against Jehovahs children (and yes, the socialists called liberals are the worst perpetrators).

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has laughed at the wicked ones as He led me safely away from their vile traps and they became entangled in their own traps.

Who better is there than Jehovah to be our closest of closest best friend. It is impossible to think of anyone to be His equal much less His superior. That is why Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are my closest of closest best friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of being my best friend like no other is capable of being. It is the most wonderful of all relationships. I extol You in Your loving name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He is No Pushover.

USE DISCRECION

 I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love one another. John 13:34 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Here is where the liberal Christians get it all wrong. They spew out lies that Jesus loved everyone with no conditions but that is a lie.

Jesus did not behave too lovingly towards the buyers and sellers at the temple did He?

He did not sound too loving when He told the scribes and pharisees that they murdered the prophets and then built statutes to worship them did He?

He did not sound too loving when He called the scribes and pharisees snakes and scorpions did He?

Yes we are to love others as Jesus loved us and part of that is calling out filthy behavior, sometimes quite sternly, when required. We are not to tolerate filthy behavior in our churches nor in our private friendships and are to drive out the wicked, unrepentant ones form this community to protect the weaker members from being led astray by them. Yes we are to walk away from those who reject Christ and shake the dust of them from our feet.

Jesus is love but He is no pushover nor a marshmallow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) always bless me to walk in righteousness so that I will not suffer Your terrifying punishment on the Day of Judgement and guide me to guide others away from their wicked ways and unto Your righteous ways. I meekly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Yes They Are.

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. Romans 16:1 New International Version.

LEADERSHIP

The word “deacon” is derived from the Greek word diakonos (διάκονος), which is a standard ancient Greek word meaning “servant”, “waiting-man”, “minister” or “messenger”. Deacon From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is a big debate in many churches as to whether women should be permitted the privilege of being ministers or serving in other departments in a church.

Paul describes Phoebe as a deacon in an exulting manner so does he does not condemn her but encourages others to accept her (not bad for someone who many accuse as being a male chauvinist huh?).

I attended a church in China that had a woman preacher, a woman choir master and a women prayer leader. They were greatly loved and respected by the congregation, indeed, their churches were always full. Fuller than the Western that had men and had the modern worship services afterwards. They endured much more scorn from family and friends in their home towns and had to move far from there. Their congregation was truly their family.

Does your pastor feel as if you treat him as a member of your family?

Do you feel as if he treats you as a member of his family?

Is that bond there a strong as titanium or as weak as a wet noodle between you and your pastor?

I felt a deep bond of respect and admiration between those Chinese pastors and me.

It is not the sex that makes a good preacher; it is a heart after God, one that is obedient to His calling.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our Father) bless me with a wise, gracious and loving heart to accept and support all those You have destined for service ilregardlus of their sex, colour, nationality or any other outward appearance. I meekly request this in the name of He who accepted all the cast offs of the society he lived in Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do You Have It?

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35 King James Version

WAVES OF WILD RED FLOWERS IN A MEADOW

Do you greet newcomers to your church and invite them into your group? If not, is it any wonder your church is not only not growing but dying?

Do you backstab gossip and snap at each other? If you do is it any wonder you are constantly losing members?

If you see a member has a problem, whether a personal problem, financial problem or health problem do you go over and offer comfort and support? Or, do you stand round and tisk, tisk the member and use them a fodder for filthy gossip?

 

So, do you have the Christian love in your heart and lives or is yours just a Christian church in name only?

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with the grace, wisdom and love to generously share with all those in Your holy family and with all those interested in becoming children of Your blessed family. I humbly request this in
the name of our loving big brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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