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.
