Unfortunately, so Too it is Today.

TRUE FRIENDSHIP

 But as for you, son of man, your people who talk about you by the walls and in the doorways of the houses say one to another, every one to his brother, ‘Come now and hear what the message is that comes from the Lord.’  They come to you as people come, and they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not practice them; for with their mouth they express loving devotion, but their heart goes after their (unlawful) gain. Behold, you are to them like a love song by one who has a pleasant voice and plays well on a stringed instrument [merely to entertain them]; for they hear your words but do not practice them. Ezekiel 33:30-32 New Living Translation Bible                   

Unfortunately, so too it is today..                                                          

How many folks today go to church to hear a flashy preacher or to listen to music. They say “Amen” at the right time with their mouths but refuse to incorporate the teaching into their daily lives through out the week. They walk out of church and are no different than when they walked in. They still live sexually immoral lives, cheat, are arrogant and disrespectful. Indeed, there have been numerous churches I have attended where I was wondering if the is a Church of Christ or if it was a den of Alli Babba and the forty thieves. They were worse than the non-Christians. \

So many folks attend the feel good churches but avoid the churches that teach the hard truth of Jehovahs commands and expect their members to abide by them (I do not mean cults but those whose teachings come from the Bible like we are to give our first fruits to Jehovah, not necessarily the church they are attending but to any Christian organization). They are insulted and offended by the teachings because it calls them out for their disgusting behaviour.

I prefer to have talks with Christian brothers and sisters, especially on the internet, rather than attend church for this very reason

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) instill in Your preachers to speak the truth no matter how offensive it is to the bench warmer Christians. Let Your words move them to repentance. I sincerely request this in the name who never pulled punches in His sermons Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

Terrified of Their Ultimate Destination

 But I will point out to you whom you should fear: fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority and power to hurl [you] into hell Luke 12:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When folks deny the reality of Hell they are calling Jehovah a liar.

I have seen too many that they mock the Word of Jehovah and refuse to believe in Hell. This, shamefully, is extremely prevalent in much of the established churches today and amongst many evangelicals.

Sadly there is too little of Hell taught in churches today. I believe many more would come to Christ if they knew the alternative than those that would come to Christ because of His love for them.

I have seen too many who mocked Christ and Hell during their lifetime terrified of their ultimate destination on their death beds.

We all know there is a Heaven and that there is a Hell. The reason folks refuse to accept that fact in their lives is that to do so would be to recognize that they cannot do what they want in their lives without eternal repercussions.

Padre Pio was asked what he thought about modern-day people who deny the existence of hell. The saint replied, “They’ll believe in hell when they get there.” 

Prayer: I humbly request my Beloved Jehovah Elohay Mishpat (the God of Justice!) every opportunity to guide the lost away from eternal damnation and toward You Divine Heavenly kingdom.

I sincerely request this in the name of He who decides who shall enter Your eternal Heavenly home Jesus Christ. Amen

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

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.
