But Be Wise.

If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

I live in a farming community. When a boy it was understood that if you wanted to eat you had to work.

Today farmers bring in off shore workers because the welfare bums refuse to go out an do an honest days work. They believe they should be pampered and given everything with no effort on their own behalf. This goes down through generations. Yes they are bums.

Bums are described as a person who avoids work and sponges on others; loafer; idler. They avoid work like the plague, they are idle and always getting into trouble, usually with alcohol and drugs and yes they are parasites of society living off of others because we have to pay for their laziness with our taxes.

Instead of the liberals cry babying about how bad these dregs of society are why not force them to go out and earn their keep?

They do not appreciate help when given to them because they believe it is owed to them.

I know of many food banks and soup kitchens that have closed down because these bums demand money from the volunteers and threaten them if they do not give them money, in many instances the police were called. Finally they could not get any volunteers so it had to be closed down. Instead of using their free loading money (welfare) to buy food they go out and get tattoos and drugs and then cry because they have no food and expect us to feed them. I unfortunately see it all to frequently here.

Instead why not have churches support working families in their own church or of neighbors they know who are the working poor?

The flip side of the coin is these big corporations that are constantly cry babying  (scamming) for money to help folks in the third world countries. The CEO’S make millions a year in salary and the feeble trickle of money that does go to the countries goes to corrupt government leaders. The other problem is that these NGO’s put the local businesses out of business.

Why not put money into investments to help the local folks in those countries start their own business?

The other one is for these big corporations asking for money to help cure disease or to help the local hospitals. Again the CEO’s make millions and why do we pay money for taxes if not to be used for health care?

Be generous but be wise in where you give. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking to me and guiding me to use the resources You provide me with to invest them wisely. I thank you in the name of He who is the wisest of all Jesus Christ. Amen

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

I Am in Thy Presence.

 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Jehovah is the best guidance Councillor there is.

He should be, He made us for a specific purpose and the wise follow the path of life He has predestined for them to walk. As we obey His choices for us we experience a oneness with Him which blesses us with a Divine joy which nothing can compare with.

The pleasures are communion with Him and seeing the fruit of our Divine labor. The ultimate pleasure is being blessed with communion with Him in eternity forevermore.

“Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church… nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.” Susanna Wesley

Prayer: Oh how I exalt Thee Jehovah Pryyand God is my best friend, my most cherished love for the privilege of sharing loving moments with You. They are the most treasured time of my life. I extol Thee in the name of my best friend with whom I cherish every moment we are together Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

I Have Met Many Pretenders

 

You hypocrites (play-actors, pretenders), rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said, ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me. Matthew 15:7 -8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many pretenders in church. They are the biggest hypocrites ever met. They are constantly criticizing others for the smallest of things while they commit far bigger sins. They dress like Dapper Dans. They do more to drive folks away from Christ than towards them.

Sadly from my experience most are elders in the congregation. Indeed they are the primary reason folks do not attend church ( I know it is for me).

I have also seen them in their final years and they are paying for their abhorrent behaviour and very sad and die alone.

We need the Holy Spirit to come along side of us and correct this behavior in its infancy before it takes root in our disposition. None of us are immune to it.

“God is in the hypocrite’s mouth, but the world is in his heart.” Gurnall

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Roi. You are the God who sees open my eyes to the wolves that prance around in sheeps clothing and when I begin to become like one of them sternly correct me so as to never stray from Thy holy flock. I meekly request this in the name of He who is never a pretender Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

They No Longer Teach the Truth.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men. Mark 7:6-8 New King James Version Holy Bible

From my personal experience I believe this is too prevalent in todays churches. They teach the doctrine of man which is mainly teaching the folks what they want to hear not what they need to hear. As well it is contrary to Biblical teaching. They no longer teach the truth.

The Bible is the word of God, anything that is contrary to that is satanic. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Sorry you misguided souls but homosexuality is still filthy in Jehovahs eyes no matter what lies you teach.

Sorry folks but Jehovah is not there just to serve your every whim like ungrateful brats.

Sorry folks but you cannot just go out and live your life how ever you want and still be accepted by Jehovah. Just as Jehovah is spirit so too is worshipping Him in spirit (with your heart not your mouth) the only worship that is acceptable unto Him.

Sorry folks but there is a eternal damnation in hell so you cannot go out and live your life contrary to Biblical teachings and expect to get a free pass into Heaven because “Jesus loves you.”

I believe this is why so many churches are dead and dying a slow death, because their false doctrine is no different from the worlds. I have been in worldly churches that were almost empty and in churches that taught Biblical doctrine that were full and alive.

Prayer:Please Jehovah-‘Ori (the Lord is my Light)bless both individual Christians and churches today to teach and live by sound Biblical doctrine that will be the light that shines in a dark cold world so that others will be blessed with and amazing loving relationship with You. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cleavet: I recently read an article that churches that teach Biblical doctrine numbers are increasing while the politically correct churches enrollment is declining.

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.

Which Group Do You Belong To?

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

There are five groups in every church.

 

There are the wolves.

 

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Acts 20:29 New International Version

 

These devils lurk about waiting to see a weak moment and pounce on you as they are very judgmental and condemning. They do this to stand on a pedestal to make themselves look righteous at the others expense. They are the most dangerous and destructive of them all. They drive more people from Christ than any of Satan’s minions could ever dream of

 

Then there are the groupies.

One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.” 1 Corinthians 1:12 New International Version

 

Now even though this refers to denominations it also includes those groupie clubs.

 

 

They are the ones that form little groups and it is an exclusive membership. If you are not say a new mother you are not welcome in their tribe. If you are a new member of a church they ignore you if you try to go over and talk with them. In short, they are the snobs.  They are responsible for one time visitors refusing to return for a second visit and indeed turning their back on Christ.

 

Next comes the tongue wagers.

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. Proverbs 26:19 New International Version

These are the deadly parrots that lurk about listening in to other conversations to devour any tidbit they can. Once they grab hold of it they burn the telephone lines up telling anybody and everybody stupid enough to listen to them. They usually mix in a little bit of the truth with a whole bunch of lies. If this can cause trouble for the unfortunate victim all the better. When confronted about their filth they behave like innocent little lambs. They are relationship destroyers. Guard well what you say about them. They destroy more relationship and cause more hard feelings between members than any wrecking ball could to any building.

 

 

Then, comes the ones that are the minority but should be the majority in every church.

 

They are the Christians.

 

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22 New International Version

 

They are the ones that welcome any newcomers and make them feel at ease and, are always polite and respectable. Before the service they like to share what Jesus has done in their live the past week. After the service they like to talk about what was being said in relation to their walk with Christ. They are the ones that build up the church, both local and international. I am very honoured to be a member of this group and enjoy greatly being with them every opportunity I can.

 

The wolves are usually always attacking these minorities and are responsible for driving them many of them from the church.

 

Which group do you belong to?

 

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) bless me to always conduct myself in thought, word and deed as a respectful child of Yours and guide me to fellowship with other brothers and sister so we can and will worship You in a harmony of love and joy. I sincerely ask this in the name of he who taught His disciples how to fellowship both amongst themselves and You Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

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

How to Spot a Wolf.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by
their fruits. Matthew 7:14-16 New King James Version

delicate ensemble of white and pink rose pedals

Wolfs are those who destroy relationships within the church, within the Christian community and within the
personal relationship with Christ. They want you to follow them, not Christ.
Are they peacocks?

Peacocks are those that dress up to impress others. They are self centered not Christ centered. Are they those who like to believe they are something special that you have to pay attention to what they say because they are so wise?

Do they constantly brag about themselves?

They are not humble like Christ, they are proud like Satan. A Christian gives thanks to Christ for what was accomplished not take the credit for themselves.

Do they draw attention to their “holiness?

Praise Jesus. Amen Are they praising Jesus or are they saying look how holy I am? Personally I find them annoying. Jesus says to be considerate of others. How considerate are they if you can not hear the prayer or see the words to the music because they are waving their hands in the air and screaming like a skinned pig of their holier than thou behavior?

Are they unethical?

Do they always go around with a special deal when in fact they are swindlers?

This can be found in missionaries as well as in the church. I have encountered many missionaries that in actuality were just living off the kindness of others and were not accomplishing anything. But, they write flat out lies to impress others to give them money.

Are they parrots? You know?
They say the same lengthy prayers over and over again. Their spirituality in their are an insult to God and personally I can not wait for them to shut up. When they say prayers before a meal the meal is cold before they finish their prayer (and I do mean that literally).    When these filthy creatures slither into a congregation they are to be thrown out fast before they destroy the community.

For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves Acts 20:20-30 New King James Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer and protector) protect me from the wolves that lurk within Your Holy family and bless me with the wisdom, strength and meekness to cast them out of any and all communities they pollute with their presence. I ask this in the mighty name of He who cast out the filthy money changers from the temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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