If They Did Not Repent.

 The Lord gave this message to Jonah son of Amittai:  “Get up and go to the great city of Nineveh. Announce my judgment against it because I have seen how wicked its people are.” Jonah 1: 1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Nineveh was not an unknown city to Jonah. They were arch enemies of both the Israelite’s and of Jehovah. The two countries deeply hated each other and were many times at war with each other. They treated each others captives very cruelly. I am sure some of Jonahs family and friends suffered at the Ninevite’s hands.

Now imagine Jehovah commanding a Jew who had family and friends suffer at the hands of the Nazi’s and Jehovah commanding him to go up and tell the Nazi’s if they do not repent they will be destroyed. That is what it was like for Jehovah to command Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn them of the coming destruction if they did not repent.

Okay, now let us make it more personal.

Imagine if Jehovah commanded you to go up and share Jesus with someone who has abused you or cheated you or made you suffer horribly in any other manner, and inform them if they did not repent of their ways they would be condemned to Hell for eternity.

Would you do it?

Although sometimes obeying Jehovahs commands may be like swallowing a turd sideways we, as His children are to be obedient unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times Jehovah will command us to do things which are repugnant to us but has eternal consequences for those He is sending us to.

No where do we see the Ninevite’s and Israelite’s becoming best buddies or and other change in the disposition between the two enemies. I believe there will be little change in the disposition between the two belligerents of today either .

Prayer: Please Jesus Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) bless this humble servant of Your to always be obedient unto His masters calling no matter how unpleasant it is. I sincerely request this in Your majestic name. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Took Me Where I Did Not Want To Go.

WE MUST LET GO

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9    New King James Version

 

When I completed my TESOL course the intention was to teach in Central America. The Lord however was directing me to China. I thought He was crazy and there was no way that destination was even on the radar.

As I love Jesus I obediently ventured to China even though there was dread in my heart because it was a communist country and I am a Christian.

It has been a difficult ten years travelling and teaching all along the coast from the north to the south. Through His wise guidance He has lead me to people who were open to listening about Him and accepting Him.

Sometimes the Lord will lead you where you do not want to go because you are afraid. Trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. He will be with you every step of the way.

Reflecting back on the experience the understanding came to me that His way was, is and always will be the best way.

A bonus is how much that in my difficult times and learning to trust in Him we have grown oh so very close.

 

What a marvelous blessing that is as well as the fact that I have helped guide others into Christ’s wonderful family.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rohi (Holy Spirit our Sheppard) for being such a patient, wise and strong guide in my life to take me to the places You have prepared for me to do the work You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do You Listen to the Translator?

If you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins. Leviticus 26:20-22 New King James Version

Many men and women claim that they read the Bible. The question is do they obey what Jehovah says to them when they read it?

Think of it like this: you like French food so you purchase a book in French on how to cook those dishes. You do not understand French so you bring in a Frenchman to translate it for you. As He is translating he instructs you to do something you disagree with and refuse to listen to him . When the dish does not come out as you desire you blame the translator who is also a French chef. Or you want the chef to do all the work.

Just as the chef will become fed up and walk away so too it is with the Holy Spirit. When He instructs you and you refuse to listen or expect Him to do all the work, He will become fed up with you and walk away from you until your attitude changes and you are willing to become obedient to His divine instruction.

With Jehovah, if you obey His commands you will be blessed; if you disobey you will be cursed. So if there are serious issues in your life, do you think it could be that you refuse to listen and obey the Divine Translator?

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (The voice of God) always help me to be attentive and obedient to Your Divine Word. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient to Your word all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Two Plus Two Equals Go

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it
says.” James 1:22 New International Version

 

ACTION

 

Jehovah has blessed us with two ears and two feet. Therefore, we are to not only listen to the Word, but to use our feet to walk where the Word leads us.To do the things the Word has revealed for us to do. 


Otherwise, you are a fool. 
You believe you are a Christian, but do not obey the commands of our king
Jesus.

Listening is passive; it means you just sit there. Anthony: Green    


Prayer: Please Jehovah Sabaoth (God, the commander of the army) bless me to be obedient to my almighties command to serve You. Please bless me with the wisdom, guidance, grace and opportunities to bring glory, honour, praise and the little lost sheep to Your awesome kingdom. I meekly request this in the
name of my mighty king Jesus Christ. Amen.

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