Turn Away From God’s Love.

SATANS TRAP

 

Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them. Jonah 2:8 New International Version

 

Whatever you love more than Jehovah is an idol. Joseph- Anthony: Green

So, what is your idol?

Have you ever heard the saying: “People used to love people and use things. Now, they love things and use people.”

Is that not sad but oh so very true in todays society?

We used to care for our aged parents when they could no longer care for themselves. How many adult children just throw their parent into a seniors home and the only time the parent sees them is when they want money to support their extravagant lifestyle (which is their idol)? Being a volunteer at a seniors home I see this quiet regularly.

 

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those adult children?

When a teacher in Asia the parents only wanted their children to study hard so they could get a good job. Of course when the children got the good job the parents expect them to support them in a lifestyle like kings and queens (which is their idol).

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless those parents?

It used to be friends enjoyed each others company and helped each other. Now, you are friends with each other as long as the other individual has something you want. When you no longer need it or cannot get it you drop them like a stone. If they need your help they are a stranger to you. What kind of friendship is that? Is that not making your ego an idol?

Do you think Jehovah will love and bless friends like that?

The current craze is the selfie stick. Where you take your own photo and plaster it all over social media. Is that not making yourself your own idol?

Do you seriously expect Jehovah blessings and love for someone who is obsessed with self love?

The other thing on social media is where they dress animals up like children and talk to them like children. They spend more time and money on their pet than they do Jehovah. Is that pet not an idol?

Do you expect Jehovahs blessing when you love and worship an animal more than you do Him?

Can you think of anything else that can be an idol?

The more you worship things the less you worship Jehovah. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: please bless me Jehovah-Kanna  (The Lord is Jealous) to always be attentive to anything or anyone I place above You. I would never want to sacrifice our loving relationship with temporary things that can never compare with Your divine love. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who exalted You above all others Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

How to Spot the Falsies.

RED IN A SEA OF GREEN

One way to spot false teachers is if they are smooth talkers.

Smooth talkers usually dress flashy. They always try to con you into their way of thinking. If you question them they become angry or accuse you of not having the supreme intelligence they have. They try to make you believe they are doing something for your good when in reality they are just conning you. I experienced this a lot. If you try to get them to get it in writing they try the guilt trip with you of :”What is the matter, don’t you trust me?” my reply is: “What’s the matter, why don’t you want to put it in writing if you are so honest?” They quickly leave me alone. There are many variations like aren’t I your friend? If you do not trust me I do not want to deal with you, this is for a limited time only, if you do not take it someone else will.

They are self centered instead of God centered. They like to talk about their accomplishments instead of what God has done through them or for them. Again they are flashy dressers that say look at me. They are greedy. They want money and fame instead of wanting to advance Christs kingdom and helping others. They pull at your strings to try to con you into giving them money to help others when in reality they take most of the money themselves. If you ask them to show you their accountability in writing where the money goes they accuse you of being stingy.

 

They always believe they are right. If you question their interpretation of Scripture they  accuse you of challenging their authority and try to put you on the defensive. I just stick to my guns.  They try to put others down so as to make themselves look good. Boy have I ever met a lot of those. When you try to defend yourself they just try to shout you down.

When you see any of these avoid them like the plague.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) please open my eyes to all the wolves in sheeps clothing that lurk around looking for the naive. When I do encounter them please bless me with the wisdom, grace, strength and meekness to defend myself and protect the gullible from their evil jaws. I ask this in the name of He who exposed the wolves when He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Prevents It Flying to God.

SATANS TRAP

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Matthew 19:21-22 New King James Version

“The love of worldly possessions is a sort of birdlime (trap), which entangles the soul and prevents it flying to God.” Augustine

In most of the world today most people are slaves.

They foolishly fall for the trap of materialistic pleasures such as a new house (which in my opinion is nothing more than a money pit). Then they are slaves to a mortage and constant upkeep costs. Indeed how many houses are overpriced because of rich immigrants coming in and buying everything up and we cannot afford a house anyway.

They are shallow enough to purchase products that promise they will be physically beautiful while neglecting their spiritual beauty. If have met many that their physical appearances are ugly yet they are the most beautiful souls I have had the privilege to meet. They go out and buy products that run up their credit cards and clothing that is overpriced and they go in debt. Meanwhile those outfits they “Had to have” are sitting in their closets collecting dust. They are slaves to fashion.

I think it is shameful when someone owns a house and they have to rent to storage place because they have too much stuff.

They think buying a certain car will make them happy and cool. I always laugh and ask them if that means they are dorks when they are not in their cars.

It is an empty happiness those whose happiness is found in worldly pleasures.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai ( God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for all the amazing blessings You abundantly shower upon this child of Yours every day. I exalt You in the name of He who always provides for His cherished sheep Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Have You Satisfied Your Thirst?

Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again John 4:13 King James Version

DEVINE COVENANT

When the Samaritan women encountered Jesus at the well, why was she there?

She was there because she needed water.

Why did she need the water?

She needed it to quench her physical thirst throughout the day.

She of course needed to go to the well every day to get more.
So too it is in todays society.

Some people need their daily fix of gossip or the sports scene or the latest fashion design.

But, it never really gives them satisfaction.

So your teams season ends, then what do you do to get satisfaction?

So the music. Television or movie “star” you gossip about is now passé, then what?

So the latest design comes around, what are going to do with all your “old clothes?

I have seen many women in China spend almost an entire months wages just to het the latest (fake) designer purse only to need to replace it a few months later because a new design has come out.

The fashion world gorges itself from their vanity.

All the above mentioned things I find neither desire nor satisfaction in.

I experience joy, security and serenity every day knowing Jehovah generously blesses me with the filling of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for grandiosely supplying me with holy and pure joy, purpose, love and serenity all day, every day. I joyously praise you for this precious gift in the name of He who overfills me every day Jesus Christ. Amen.

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