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.

Your Worst Attacks Comes From Within

If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. John 15:19 New King James Version

HARRASED

 

Many Christians mistake this to solely mean to those outside the Christian community like Buddhists or Muslims or New Agers.

From my experience, and I have a lot of it, they did not hate me. They either respected my beliefs, tolerated it or ignored it.

Then what could these verses be referring to?

Again from my experience, and I have a lot of it, it was from the false Christians in the church, particularly the wolves (the self righteous ones who are always quick to find fault and condemn others). They put on the façade of being a Christian during the sermon but were the biggest hypocrites before and after the service. They do more to give Christians a bad name and drive others away from Christ and church than the best of Satans minions. When they see Christians they hate us and constantly make false accusation against us and do everything they can do to make our life difficult.

So do not be surprised when your worst attacks come from within the church and not outside it.

“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.  Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:11-12 New King James Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yehew (God of His people) bless me with the wisdom, strength and meekness (meekness means to keep our tempers under control so we do not fall into their wicked bait to get us into stupid arguments and make us look bad) to always exhibit the same behaviour as our beloved friend Jesus did when encountering the scribes and Pharisees in His time. Bless us with this opportunity to expose their evilness and Your divine love. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who showed the way Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Receive Them as He Received You

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God. Romans 15:7 New King James Version

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

 

Jesus accepted me when I gave my life to Him warts and all. I was not perfect, if I was perfect I would not need Christ.
So when you have to be around someone who has a habit that is annoying to you like cracking their knuckles be tolerant of them. Perhaps there is a Christian that has a habit that is not becoming of a Christian.

Do not ostracize them.
We are all on the potters wheel until we get to Heaven.

That does not mean that you are to ignore it and let it slide.

Graciously bring it to their attention and try to help them overcome the weakness. Pray for them.

I have seen too many wolves in churches just looking for anything to condemn a brother or sister which ultimately drive them away from the church and indeed many times away from the Christian walk.

Meanwhile the wolves are the filthiest of them all. I yell you true, their very words are that which will condemn them into Hell.
He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first. John 8:7 New King James Version
Now if they willingly continue in their sinful habit and make no attempt to correct it or get help to correct it then they are to be removed from the church until they repent.  That means if somebody is committing sexual misconduct like pre-marriageable sex or
homosexuality and they refuse to repent they are to be refused to be a part of the church until they do repent, otherwise they will lead the weak astray.

If your brother or sistersins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.  But if they will not every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to Matthew 17 New International Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (the voice of God) bless me to graciously guide those who are not walking in Your way back to the fold. Bless me to be tolerant of others little annoying habits knowing I am not perfect either. I humbly request this blessing in the name of He who taught us to be gentle but strong with all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Here Are the Two Keys.

Here is the first keyconcerning the rapture and those who come after it: “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation Revelation 7:14 New International Version

A gentle loving caress

 

The two important words

In the Old Testament Noah and his family entered into the ark to be brought out of the flood that destroyed the world. Lot and his family where brought out of Sodom before it was destroyed. The Israelites who came out of Jerusalem did not suffer the fate of those who stayed when the Babylonians destroyed it .

So if the tribulation is to be punishment for those who reject Christ does it not make sense we are to be brought out of the tribulation?

Now some people point to the sheaves in Revelation fourteen. If the Christians have been raptured then how will the people hear the word of Christ and accept Him?

Here is the second key to unlock the mystery:  I believe that God will send angels to proclaim Jesus to give the people one last
chance.
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. ”
Revelation 14:6-7 New International Version

Prayer: Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) I, with deepest anticipation, look forward to enjoying Your loving companionship in eternity that our beloved Father has so generously prepared for us in advance. I thank you for this wonderful privilege in Your loving name. Amen.

 

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