By Far More Christian Than

                                                  

 There is no [distinction between] Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, [nor between nations whether] barbarian or Scythian, [nor in status whether] slave or free, but Christ is all, and in all [so believers are equal in Christ, without distinction]. Colossians 3:11 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

 Do you notice the mention of the Scythian and wonder who they were?

Scythian the 8th century BC, they possibly raided Zhou China. At their peak, Scythians came to dominate the entire steppe zone,stretching from the Carpathian Mountains in the west to central China (Ordos culture).

When I was a teacher in China some Chinese Christians were sharing with me how Christianity came to China early in the first century A.D. When I looked up who they were on wikipedia.org it fits perfectly what my Christian sisters were informing of. It took me about three years to come to grips with what they were saying but searching the scriptures proved they were right.

I believe we in the west are arrogant in believing that Christianity is mostly a western religion.

When I studied Chinese Christianity and saw how they behaved they were by far more Christian than the majority of so called Christians in the west.

As well their Bible is different form the wests (for example the only apostle they have is Thomas because he was the only one of Christs disciples to travel there and they have the Book of Enoch in their Bible) and I found it more in line with true Christianity.

As well on the bus going to church the Chinese Christians and we excitedly shared with what Jehovah had done in our lives that week(The members from the west were very annoyed by it.They preferred to talk about pop music, the latest movies or TV shows or fashion- the material world- rather than Christ in their lives).

How many western Christians get excited to talk about what Jehovah has done in their lives?

On the way back we would discuss the sermon.

How many so called western Christians discuss the sermon after service?

Before church they would have prayer meetings and after church they would have Bible study classes.

How many churches have that every Sunday- indeed, how many even teach from the Bible any more?

Most of them have suffered a great deal by becoming Christians.

How many in the west are willing to suffer for Christ?

Do not tell me you are a Christian, show me. Joseph a son of Jehovah.

We in the west can learn so much of true worship from our Chinese Christian brothers and sister.

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah God of knowledge bless me with abundant knowledge of how to be a loving obedient child of Yours every day.Please ingrain it into every molecule of my being so as to glorify You. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the all knowing Jesus Christ. 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

James Was Right.

                                

For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him. Colossians 1:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I remember reading about King James and during his trial He said that He was ordained by God to be the king. James was right. Oliver Cromwell was wrong. Some misinterpret what he said as to falsely believe he was claiming to be a god. Now that does not excuse his actions but it is Jehovah that will judge him not us.

By the same standards we are to trust Jehovah to put in place righteous leaders in our countries. We are to have faith (which means trust) that any of their wicked action will not come to fruition or that Jehovah will help us protect ourselves from them. As well they shall be judged by their actions.

So, instead of taking to the streets and screaming like lunatics why not try something much more productive: get on your knees every morning and pray for your leaders instead of having a hissy fit because they do not bow to your demands that they do what you want.

The same is true of any Christian leader in the church. We are to constantly pray for the Holy Spirit to guide their actions and that we will have the wisdom, fortitude and grace to correct them when they go astray.

Prayer is the most effective weapon in the Christian arsenal. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless all authorities both in government and in churches that You speak with them and guide their actions. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient Son and my cherished Heavenly King Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.
