Are You Going to Drown?

FOLLOW JESUS

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it. Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt? Matthew 14: 23-31 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation.

What can take our eyes off of Jesus?

Which on of these categories do you fall into: there is problems in my family ( instead of fretting about these problems and being a dingbat and trying to fix them yourself, why not do the wise thing and give it over to Jesus. He will send the best guidance councilor, the Holy Spirit to help you.),

I need money. I don’t think there has been a time since money was made when people didn’t have this concern. Again rely on Jesus to supply your needs. Didn’t He promise He would take care of us when He said:” Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”

I’m sick. Now this is the time to get into deep relationship with God because that is when you are weak and through His divine strength He will help you. He may not cure you but give you the strength to endure it.

When we keep our eyes focused on Jesus He will give us everything we need to handle any crisis.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4: 16 New Living Translation)

You know, one time I was going through the most painful experience in my life. It was recovering from a terribly abusive relationship. In my deep anguish I, a broken man, sobbed to Jesus to come and rescue me from this pit of hell. Through an internet Pen Pals site and a Christian radio program I noticed while searching the internet (Focus on the Family I was introduced to loving caring Christian councilors that helped lift me out of that hell and heal me. I am forever indebted to both them and my wonderful Jesus for bringing them into my life at that moment.

Now my whole commitment is unto Jehovah God our beloved Abba.

The greatest honor is to be a servant of the greatest king, Jesus Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ori (the Lord is my Light) Psalm 27:1 for blessing me with being the bright light that guides my life. May I follow it all the way to Heavens Gate. I praise You in the name of the light of the world Jesus Christ. Amen

Be Careful About Them.

FALL AWAY JOSEPHS QUOTES

If anyone thoughtlessly takes an oath to do anything, whether good or evil (in any matter one might carelessly swear about) even though they are unaware of it, but then they learn of it and realize their guilt when anyone becomes aware that they are guilty in any of these matters, they must confess in what way they have sinned. Leviticus 5:3-4 New International Version

As you can see, Jehovah takes all vows seriously.

So if you take a vow, even if you are tricked into it and refuse to honour it, you will pay the price.

This I believe is intended to drive home three points.

One: there is a price to pay for disobedience.

Now if you have taken a vow that is detrimental to society, or Christ, you should break it.

Otherwise the consequences will be more severe. So if a friend has nagged you into keeping a secret of how they cheated on an a deal with another company you should break that vow to do the right thing and report it otherwise when they are caught you will suffer the same punishment at them.

 

The second important thing is to drive home the importance of waiting and seeking council through councilors and prayer to avoid being caught up in these in the first place.

The third one is the one I have been plagued with constantly in China.

Do not make a promise you do not intend to keep.

In China they have a practice of promising you almost anything to get you to do what they want you to do. Once you have done your part they conveniently get amnesia and forget their promises (which in reality they had no intention of keeping in the first place).

This has taught me a valuable lesson.

Now when someone wants me to do something for them and they make extravagant promises I inform them loudly in public that because I want them to prove to everyone how honest they are I will give them the honour of fulfilling their promises first.

It greatly shames them.

Every time I see them I loudly ask them when they are going to fulfill their promises.

This is done as a warning to those who are watching and listening so they do not attempt this filth on me.

It has eliminated a lot of stress in my life and a lot less being made a sucker out of.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always depend upon Your Holy Spirits voice to guide me on when to and when not to make promises because they are oh so very serious to You. I know this voice will prevent me from making foolish promises or unattainable promises. I sincerely request this in the name of He who promised to always be with me and has kept His promise Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Go to You

“We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help” 2 Chronicles 20:12.

 

CHRISTS POWER

 

When I do not know what to do, I always go to You.

Have you ever experienced a time when you were in desperate need of help and no one gave you the help you needed? Your family, friends, councilors and doctors advice seemed empty.

Why do you suffer through that when the first one you should always go to is our beloved Jehovah?

Name me someone who loves you more than Him? Name me someone wiser than Him? Name me someone who has unlimited resources available to help you like He does?  Speak to Him from your heart.

Do not try to manipulate Him by making empty promises you cannot keep (like if you do this for me I will do that for you and then you do not follow through. That is a deadly sin.).

If a man makes a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by some agreement, he shall not break his word. Numbers 30:2 New King James Version

Do not try to give Him the guilt trip. God You said You will help me, now You must do this.

Simply ask humbly, sincerely and with faith that He will answer you.

In my life He has answered in many ways sometimes dreams, many times from the Bible and listening to righteous pastors (Allister Beg, Charles Spurgeon, A.W.Tozer and Vance Havner are my favourites) on websites like sermon audio.com, talking with brothers and sisters (begin with the elders as they have more life experiences under their belt), a Christian song or sitting in a quiet place in nature.

When He answers it is wise to obey Him. What use is it asking for help if you are not willing to obey the advice? Many times it will be something you do not want to do or say but that is where faith come s in.

So many times I thought the advice was crazy but was obedient and obeyed. I praise the Lord that I did because not only was there resolution but if the advice of others was followed it would have led to disaster.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) for all Your abundant guidance You have so richly blessed me with in my life. I give thanks in the name of our wonderful Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

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