I Am the Only Way.

 Jesus said to him, I am the [only] Way to God and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6 Holy Bible Amplified Version

There is no negotiation with Jehovah.

I do not care what religion it is they all fall flat on their faces because they refuse to accept Christ as the Saviour and Heavenly King.

As for so the called Christian churches that preach the Santa Claus religion ( just as if you are a good boy or a good girl Santa Claus will bring you presents some so called Christian religions preach that it is by good works that you enter into Heaven. Both are fairy tales) they are living in a fools paradise. All their good works do not matter one iota on judgment day.

It is only by Christs blood, resurrection and our accepting His sacrifice and accepting Him as our saviour that we will be granted entrance into Heaven.

“God never negotiates with men. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross put an end to any kind of negotiations. It is now Christ or nothing. It is now God’s word in its entirety or nothing.” A.W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wonderful privilege of being Your humble servant here on earth and eventually for eternity in the Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. I extol Thee in thy magnificent name. Amen

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

Yield and Submit.

WE MUST LET GO

 “Now yield and submit yourself to Him [agree with God and be conformed to His will] and be at peace; In this way [you will prosper and great] good will come to you. Job 22:21 Holy Bible Amplified Version

It takes the two. It takes the two parts in this verse before you are blessed.

Number one is to stop.

Stop being independent and stubborn. Jehovah cannot and will not ever attempt to help someone who refuses help. We must yield our will and wants and submit unto Him.

The next part is just as difficult.

To submit ourselves unto Jehovah means we are to give Him total control over our lives like a horse submits to the reins of its rider.

Once these two difficult tasks are completed then come the blessing. The blessing may be a physical blessing but there is always a spiritual blessing. The spiritual blessing of course is that there is a lot less stress in your life because you trust Jehovah has control of your life. The same can be said for worry. Instead your life is filled with peace, contentment and a knowledge of security knowing we have a superior being directing and helping us live a Divine life.

Leaving it in Jehovahs hands is the better choice. He knows what He is doing while we only think we know what we are doing. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with the privilege of being a humble servant of the most noble King. Please bless me to always have a submissive heart unto Your will in every aspect of my life. I give thanks for this blessing and pray for this blessing in Your majestic name. Amen.

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

That isn’t the end of it.

COMPLETE DEDITACATION

Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you …Philippians 2:12-13 Holy Bible King James Bible

Once we have accepted Jesus that isn’t the end of it. Going to church once a week isn’t the end of it.

No, brothers and sisters salvation is not a one off encounter. It is a weekly, a daily, an hourly and indeed a moment by moment event. We must surrender all aspects of our lives to Christ in order to maintain our salvation. If we don’t it may happen as slow as molasses or it may be as fast and powerful as an avalanche. One thing is certain though, we WILL, lose our salvation when it is not directed and controlled by Christ. Fear and trembling is referring to awe and respect. We should be in awe of Gods love for us and respect His decisions on what is right for us. Let His thoughts direct every aspect of our lives.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:17, Holy Bible New International Version                                
   

They are not only jewels of wisdom, but daily guidance references as well. 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in  the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 Holy Bible the new international version  

Prayer: Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) thank you for your gracious gift of salvation. Please help me to surrender every aspect to your intelligent guidance in my life. In the name of the consummate councilor Jesus Christ. Amen                                                            

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

The Battle that Wasn’t.

HOPE IN THE LORD

 

 

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,Because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3 New King James Version Holy Bible

One morning as soon as I woke up my head felt like it was going to explode in flames and my finger tips felt like they were going to explode. I knew this was a with drawl symptom of stopping smoking. There was a quite little voice that informed me not to reach for any niccorette gum, lozenges or the patch. I felt Jehovah telling me He was going to beat it.

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. Romans 8:26 New King James Version Holy Bible

Now was decision time: 1 I could surrender to the craving and buy a pack. This would mean ultimate defeat.

2 I could trust Jehovah and obey His instructions.

I felt the Lord directing me to a quiet wood lot. Silly me, had the disbelief that it was going to be smack down time like in the phony wrestling some folks waste their time watching on TV. There was a fantasy of the devil pinning me to the mat and then my super hero Jesus climbing into the ring and giving he devil the what for and casing him away. The reality of it was I laid on a mat and was completely encompassed by peace and strength that could only be the gift of the Holy Spirit.

And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:48 New King James Version Holy Bible

Whenever the desire hits me I either reach for Rescue Remedy or the Bible.

The Bible and prayer works better.

In order to receive Jehovahs blessing it is a two part sequence. First you have to have firm faith and believe. Sometimes part of having faith is taking the first step.

Second Jehovah will then bless you. Now you may not receive your request coming to fulfillment because it is either ungodly or because it is not what Jehovah has planned for you.

There was once a prayer for revenge because of what was deemed a serious offense against me. That prayer was denied but instead the Lord blessed me years later seeing that what was done was nothing more that an unintentional misunderstanding.

For years I prayed to be blessed with a Godly woman to be my wife and for us to be blessed with children. That has never come to pass. It would have been impossible to serve my Heavenly King if I were married and had children.

It is impossible to be a Christian without faith. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Having faith is a lifetime of work. It is not a one time deal.

Each time your faith is rewarded your faith will grow but needs to continue to grow until we are walking the streets of Heaven.

Trust Jehovah with your life, His wisdom far surpasses ours. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Please Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) bless me with providing me with them means to grow my faith in You. In so doing my Love I will also be blessed with drawing closer unto You. I sincerely request this in the name of He who had faith enough in You to go to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Breakdown of Society.

descrection

 And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 Holy Bible, New King James Version

I believe that when you break down the family, you break down society. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Now that does not mean you are to remain in an abusive relationship.

“Train your child in the way in which you know you should have gone yourself.” Charles H. Spurgeon

How many times have we reflected on our past and wish we could change it?

When you are a parent you can pass these mistakes as well as your triumphs onto your children to help guide them through life.

“The tasks connected with the home are the fundamental tasks of humanity.” Theodore Roosevelt

For those of us that are old enough to remember do you remember those that in my opinion are destroyer of the family the  (womens lib) spewing on how they were on a biological clock and wanted to get pregnant ? Because they relegated men to the trash can they wanted to get pregnant by artificial insemination because they said they did not need a father in the family. Look at the results. Could it be boys raised by feminists are confused as how to be a man because there were none in their family life? Could that be why so many males today are so feminine?

In many Asian countries the mother raises the children and could that by why there is so much homosexuality there and the men are so feminine there?

“There is only one way to bring up a child in the way he should go and that is to travel that way yourself.” Abraham Lincoln

We need to walk with our children through life not shove them off to babysitters like sports teams or other extra curricular activities. We need to spend time with them not just having fun but teaching them life lessons. Other wise, when they leave the nest they will be completely unprepared for the world out there.

The most important duty of every parent and grandparent is to teach them about Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To help them become adopted members of a Holy Family.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Abba (God our Father) please bless those who were raised fatherless to be introduced unto You so that will be blessed to know what a father is. This blessing they will in turn teach their children and may it restore Godly families to our society which so desperately needs it. I humbly request this in the name of my adored bib brother Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Do Not Stop Because It Begins

And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,  and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.” Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’” Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.1 Kings 18:42-45 New King James Version

There was a drought in the land and Elijah prayed.

Soon there was a tiny cloud. He continued to pray even though he saw the cloud. That is what we are to do.

When we pray and we see the beginning of our prayers take fruitation we are not to stop praying but to pray all the more fervently.

THE THREE PARTS OF PRAYER

For me it was praying for the blessing to hone my skills as a dutiful Christian writer when beginning to write

After two years I started getting numerous accolades from other writers and even received awards on the web site I was writing on.

I still have not ceased to pray for Jehovah to bless me to improve even more. I am still learning by Gods grace.

So be patient. Do not forget that Jehovah works in His time and not ours. It may take weeks months or years but if it is in Jeovahs will it will come to pass.

This does not happen all the time.

We are all given free choice so if there is someone you desire to have reconciliation with and they have no desire for it is will sadly never happen.

As well Jehovah may not give you your desires because He sees far into the future and know it may not be in your best interest. I know I prayed for a woman to marry me and she refused. Many years later I saw what type of wife she was and very generously thanked Jehovah He did not grant my desire.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God of grace) for all the amazing blessing You have so abundantly blessed me with. Please my beloved never allow me to be complacent and lazy in either my prayers or Your following to improve myself in my walk with You. I humbly ask this in the name of He who spent the beginning of every day praying for Your will to be done in and through His life Jesus Christ. Amen.

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