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.

Meditate Within Your Heart.

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The Lord will hear when I call to Him. Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.   Lord Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,

And put your trust in the Lord Psalm 4:3-5

Of course you are different from most of those round you. Jehovah says He sets you apart because you live a godly life.

Personally speaking I find most conversations with worldly people boring to sleep.

 

I am not interested in what sports teams are doing.

I am interested in what Jehovah is doing in my life.

I am not interested in what they disgustingly call “music” today, which is all about sex, drugs and booze.

 

I am interested in joining in the choir of nature praising Jehovah and listening to on line sermons on like on http://www.sermonaudio.comwww.blbclassic.org or http://www.blbclassic.org

 

I am not interested in wasting my time watching the filth on TV or in movies.

I am interested in reading and meditating on Jehovahs word, the Bible or watching good Christian programs.

 

To me, to meditate means talking with Jehovah and thinking about His answers. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I do not go to physiatrists when I have problems. I go to Jehovah in prayer and He is always near to me (I also like to share with close Christian brothers and sisters who pray for me and offer Godly advice).  As a consequence I do not fit in with the majority around me. I am apart from them.

Yes there are many who abuse me and I am angry about it (even though we are Christians that does not mean we do not have feelings of anger) but I do not sin in trying to take revenge. I have faith that Jehovah will deliver true justice and I see that He does.

I begin and end every day in sincere prayer with my Love. It is the best time of my day. Most times I am still (which means you clear your mind) at some time during the prayer and feel His loving, comforting presence in my heart.

Being poor I cannot offer sacrifices of money but I do offer my time and skill to help others in volunteer work. Both are acceptable unto Jehovah. Do not think that you have to give money if you cannot afford it. Your time, skill and services are just as valuable, pleasing and acceptable to Him.

Before I do anything I always take it to Jehovah and have trust in Him to lead me in the way He wants me to go. I know I can and do trust in Him because He loves me. I may not like His direction at the time but on reflection of it later I see His wisdom and love.

Going my way leads to disaster, going Jesus’ way leads to success.   Joseph- Anthony: Green

                                                                    

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for blessing this sometimes stubborn and insolent sheep with You Divine guidance in my life. May I always be submissive and obedient to Your Divine leading. I humbly request this in the name of my cherished good Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen

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

If You Are Not Looking

HUNGERY FOR GOD

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9 New International Version

How can you find God if you are not looking for Him?

How can you find God?

When you read your Bible and daily devotionals like : Our Daily Bread and Acts International by Dick Innes, when you listen to sermons online like sermonsaudio.com, when you talk with other Christians and listen to Christian music like on JoyFmonline.org or Prasie1065.com God will speak to you.

When He speaks to you listen to Him, talk with Him about like He is your best friend. Then obey what He is guiding you to do. Then you will develop the most amazing love affair. You will enjoy spending time with Him

He walks with me, and He talks with me, And He tells me I am His own; And the joys we share as we tarry there None other has ever known.C. Austin Miles

Prayer: Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) please guide me how to experience the most astounding love affair there ever could be, the one with You. I humbly request this in Your beloved name Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.

Concentrate on Him.

city shrounded in mist in the mountains seen through the forest Hong Kong-crop

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 New King James Version

Instead of concentrating on self to gain happiness which always leaves you feeling empty (you know I need a new car or house to be happy. I need to make more money. I need the latest fashion clothes to be happy {it constantly amazes me how shallow people are to buy designer clothes that are no better than no name one but twice the price} or I need a better body) concentrate on Christ.

It is always the most fulfilling experience to enjoy a beautiful love affair with Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

 

This is accomplished with setting aside quiet time every day reading His love letter and guidance book to you (the Bible) and talking with Him.

It also involves finding a quiet place in nature to just sit and enjoy communing with Him.

 

Enjoying nature is the best place to commune with Christ.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Jehovah made nature, man made cities. Which do you find more serine and beautiful?

 

The other way to develop a relationship with Him is to serve Him.

Request the Holy Spirit to guide you to the best place to serve Him and then depend upon His guidance to accomplish the work he has brought you to do.

Think of it as you and the Holy Spirit being a tag team. During this time you will feel as a partner and will enjoy working with the best Guidance Councilor.  When you do this you will experience joy.

 

The difference between happiness and joy is like comparing a bowl of instant soup to a smorgasbord of delicacies.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ElHeenu (the Lord our God)  for the incredible honour of being a member of Your holy family. The most cherished time of my day every day is the time I spend with You. I give thanks for this treasure in the name of the best friend one could ever have Jesus Christ. Amen.

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