Are You Willing to Die to Live?

 

CHRISTIAN SCARSI have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Galatians 2:20 New Living Translation

To gain a fantastic life we must first sacrifice a worthless one. When we become Christians we are to sacrifice the old life for the Christian life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Notice the word SACRIFICE.

This usually, but not always, entails a very painful experience.

It is usually very difficult to give up your old life. Many times it will mean walking away from bad habits and friends, indeed, maybe even family.

During this painful and trying time do not worry; Jesus is right there with you. Call out to Him and He will send His Spirit helper, The Holy Spirit to strengthen you, comfort you and encourage you.

When you come out the other end of your walk through that fiery hell, you will experience joy, peace, contentment and know you are loved like never before. You will be close to our great Emmanuel (God amongst us) and will feel such a close bond with Him the pain experienced in your walk through hell will seem trivial in comparison to the peace, joy and contentment in the loving arms of Jesus.

“The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us” (Rom. 8:18). New living Translation

As well read Psalms 23 for encouragement.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hossanha (The Lord our Maker) for crucifying my self to be given the priceless gift of life with Christ. In His lovely name we give thanks. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Will Cure More Sins Than

 The Lord is like a father to his children,  tender and compassionate to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

You get more with the carrot than the stick. It is better to encourage someone than to tear them down and be a constant fault finder with them. I had far more success using this method as a teacher than any other.

When you are a constant fault finder, folks tend to lose ambition to improve. That makes them easy to control which is satanic.

Jehovah is very patient and compassionate (which means He is sympathetic towards our weaknesses and helps us overcome them) with us. Should we not be the same with others?

That does not mean we are to look the other way with their destructive lifestyle choices (like drugs) but are to help them (the operative word here is help. If they refuse to attempt to improve themselves than it is a waste of time trying to help them). To not hold someone accountable for their destructive lifestyles is not helping them, it is abusing them. It is abuse because we are not holding them accountable , to see the destruction in their lives and others and make not attempt to improve their lives.

To be compassionate is to help them leave that destructive lifestyle not to encourage them to continue in it. Yes, we need to be tender and compassionate but with a good dose of firmness ,when necessary, is needed in the equation as well.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer: Please Jehovah EL RACHUM (Merciful God) bless me to be merciful toward others as You are merciful unto me. I sincerely request this in the name of He whose merciful blood cleanses me of my sins Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

Labour to Grow Better

CHRISTIAN SCARS

 “Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He loves you too much to allow it to grow.

That is why Jehovah refines us in the furnace of affliction. When there are (and there always is) ungodly behavior, belief or dispositions in a Christians life.

Jehovah first bring it to His child’s attention and inform them of the way to correct this disease.

When the child stubbornly refuse to obey our Heavenly Father, then He brings afflictions to them to encourage them to reform their ways.

The longer the child refuses the Fathers disciple, the stronger the discipline becomes until it crushes the disobedience in the child. It is not pleasant but it is what is best for us in the walk to Heaven.

I have been through it and every Christian will go through it as well. Sometimes we learn quick, sometimes (like me) we learn slow so we endure a lot of afflictions until the lesson of obedience is learned in every aspect of our life.

“Labour to grow better under all your afflictions, lest your afflictions grow worse, lest God mingle them with more darkness, bitterness and terror.” — John Owen

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for patiently creating this child of Yours into a obedient, loving child through many afflictions when I was a stubborn and obstinate child. I pray I never have to hurt Your precious heart by forcing You to discipline me in such a manner every again because I love You so much. I exalt You in the name of He who disciplines those He loves so dearly Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Invite Your Audience Carefully

CHOOSE FRIENDS

I recently read this and from plenty of experience agree with it one hundred percent.

Life is a Theater…Invite Your Audience Carefully                  

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a DISTANCE. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not going anywhere relationships or friendships. 

 Observe the relationships around you. Pay close attention. Which ones lift and which ones lower? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know or appreciate you?                                                                     

The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you…the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.           

Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our outlook.                  

And so, we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds.                                                                                               

We should not share our dreams with negative people, nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts.             

Who’s in your front row?  author unknown~

It is refreshing to walk away from toxic folks because if you do not, their poison will kill the joy, love and peace from your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah   

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with revealing unto me the recipe for daily and everlasting joy in my life. May I be blessed today with sharing this recipe with all I come in contact with. In the name of He who brings me unlimited joy to serve Jesus Christ my King I do humbly give thanks and request. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

His Favorite Abiding Place Is.

My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our dwelling place with him.John 14:23 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

When we accept Christ as the atoning sacrifice the Holy Spirit comes and dwells within our hearts. He is there to comfort us, teach us, guide us, encourage us, strengthen us, calm us, assure us and correct us.They are a constant presence which will never depart from us.

When we are in communion with the trinity they come and bless us with their amazing Divine love within our hears. There is nothing to compare to this amazing experience and it is ours to lay claim to for eternity when we enter Heavens gate.

He takes great delight in dwelling in each of His childrens hearts

“Our Father dwells in tents as well as in temples, but His favorite abiding place is in the hearts of mankind.” J. Fred Jones

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with Your constant presence in my daily life. I need Your Divine guidance, protection and love every day. But, most of all my Love, I treasure our  daily communion as the greatest blessing of all. I thank you in the name of my most cherished best friend Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Who Else Ya Gonna Trust?

                                           

 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, “The just and upright shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Our walk in faith begins with baby steps and as we experience Jehovahs righteousness which is a morally right or justifiable a righteous decision. We learn to trust Him more and more with every aspect of our life. As we do He will lengthen our strut with Him until we are walking with huge steps not baby ones.

That does not mean we will never doubt Him.

I have been on this walk towards Heaven for thirty years and there are still times of doubt. That is okay though when we handle it the right way.

And, of course, the right way is to take it to Jehovah in prayer and to read our Bibles.

He will not always answer us right away and that is when we need to reflect back on how faithful He was in the past to encourage us as we walk along blindly in faith as He is taking us into the unknown and preparing us for the unknown service unto Him.

“Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.” Martin Luther

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rabbi (God our Teacher) for blessing me with Your patient Divine education in enlarging my faith through the decades. Thank you that You are constantly expanding my trust in Jehovahs guidance, Jesus’ strength and Your wisdom to continue the walk towards Heaven on the path Jehovah has chosen for me to take. I praise You all in the name of He who will greet me at Heavens gate Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Cannot be Perfected Without Adversity.

 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.] John 16:33 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We all suffer through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares.

The difference is that those of us in Jehovahs family is there to comfort us, encourage us, heal us and guide us through them.

Those of the world depend upon their own faulty understanding, power and logic and or that of so called professionals to no avail. They suffer far greater.

The closer we get to Christ, the more we are going to suffer. The more we suffer, the closer we get to Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Many times when we are enduring hard times and we call out to Jehovah it seems as if there is no answer. Do not be discouraged. He loves you and will not ever desert you.

When you reflect back on it you will see Jehovah burning off the dross (the bad dispositions in you) and teaching you.

This fills me with awe and amazing joy, love and respect that I have such an amazing God, it will you as well.

Of course there is going to be a battle between you and satan.

He sees you getting close to Christ and he is infuriated. He will show no mercy in his attacks to destroy this incredible loving relationship.

Sometimes Jehovah will allow you to fight your own battles and each time you do your warrior skills against this filth will be enlarged. You will sing for joy unto Jehovah in your victory. Think of Job at the end of his suffering. This will bring you closer to our Warrior King.

Other times the battle is too strong for you and the Holy Spirit will come  to rescue  you. Again your relationship with Christ will be closer than before.

“A gem cannot be polished without friction; the child of God cannot be perfected without adversity.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for using adversity to polish off the dross in my life so that I am a beautiful jewel in Your eyes and in Your heart. I extol Thee in the name of the most precious jewel of all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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