I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

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

Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

How to Spot a Wolf.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by
their fruits. Matthew 7:14-16 New King James Version

delicate ensemble of white and pink rose pedals

Wolfs are those who destroy relationships within the church, within the Christian community and within the
personal relationship with Christ. They want you to follow them, not Christ.
Are they peacocks?

Peacocks are those that dress up to impress others. They are self centered not Christ centered. Are they those who like to believe they are something special that you have to pay attention to what they say because they are so wise?

Do they constantly brag about themselves?

They are not humble like Christ, they are proud like Satan. A Christian gives thanks to Christ for what was accomplished not take the credit for themselves.

Do they draw attention to their “holiness?

Praise Jesus. Amen Are they praising Jesus or are they saying look how holy I am? Personally I find them annoying. Jesus says to be considerate of others. How considerate are they if you can not hear the prayer or see the words to the music because they are waving their hands in the air and screaming like a skinned pig of their holier than thou behavior?

Are they unethical?

Do they always go around with a special deal when in fact they are swindlers?

This can be found in missionaries as well as in the church. I have encountered many missionaries that in actuality were just living off the kindness of others and were not accomplishing anything. But, they write flat out lies to impress others to give them money.

Are they parrots? You know?
They say the same lengthy prayers over and over again. Their spirituality in their are an insult to God and personally I can not wait for them to shut up. When they say prayers before a meal the meal is cold before they finish their prayer (and I do mean that literally).    When these filthy creatures slither into a congregation they are to be thrown out fast before they destroy the community.

For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves Acts 20:20-30 New King James Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer and protector) protect me from the wolves that lurk within Your Holy family and bless me with the wisdom, strength and meekness to cast them out of any and all communities they pollute with their presence. I ask this in the mighty name of He who cast out the filthy money changers from the temple Jesus Christ. Amen.

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