There is Only Two Choices.

                                                 

 If it is unacceptable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’ All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened.” — C. S. Lewis

There are only two types of folks.

One type says I will do what I want and it will be done my way. As a consequence they are missing out on so much of life.

Who knows us better: us or Jehovah?

We go on feelings and intuitions which are easily misled. Indeed, they are the devils playground because he can easily manipulate them.

So say someone wants to be a mechanic and Jehovah has designed us to be an engineer. Try as hard as we may we will never be a mechanic which leads to disappointment.

When we follow Jehovahs guidance and become and engineer our lives are fulfilled.

The other thing is those outside of Christ are easily led astray by others (especially celebrities ) whose advice is for the masses not for the individual which is bad advice and they preach lies like blaming others instead of taking responsibility for our own actions. This only leads to more trouble and disappointment.

When we are lead by the Holy Spirit His advice is supreme, individualized and it is for our own good.

Going our own way leads to Hell, going Jehovahs way leads to Heaven. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the honour of being Your free willed servant. Thank you for blessing me with the Holy Spirit to teach me and assist me in becoming more of an obedient child of Yours every day. In Your majestic name I do humbly pray. Amen.

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

It Comes From Above.

“The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17 New International Version.                                                                                                    

 

Wisdom is having knowledge and putting that knowledge into action. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                              

 

Devine wisdom is the best wisdom and that can only be obtained from being obedient to the will of Jehovah. The more obedient we are to Him the more wisdom He blesses us with.                                                                                                                            

 

Peace loving to me means we are not out looking for fights and try to be peace makers. It does not mean we are to be wimps and allow others to abuse us.                                   

 

Considerate means to put others welfare above your own as long as it is not submitting to anything that is manipulative. So if you have a family event and a friend asks you to go shopping with them because they do not want to be alone that is manipulative.                                                                                                

 

Submissive is to stop trying to fight or resist something as long as it is not against Christs commands. So if someone asks you to try drugs of course you are to resist them but if someone is trying to get you to give up a bad habit then you are to submit to them.                                

 

Mercy means to be kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation. This means you are not to get someone back when they are at a weak moment and indeed help them, It also means you are not to turn your back when you see someone needs help.                                                                    

 

Good fruit means that we are to encourage others to become children of Jehovah.                       

 

Impartial means that everyone is treated equally. There is no racial discrimination. There are no black churches or Asian churches or white churches or neighborhoods. There is no giving preferential treatment to a woman over a man or vice versa. There is no rich or poor, no looking down on someones physical handicap.                                                                                            

 

Being sincere means having or showing true feelings that are expressed in an honest way and being genuine or real : not false, fake, or pretended. That means you are not to be two faced, friendly to their face but putting a knife in it when they are not there. It means you are not to “act cool” just to impress others. It means you are not to make promises to others just to get them to do something for you when you have no intention of fulfilling your end of the deal once they have done their part.                                                                                                                                

 

The little things we do in our daily lives can and do have big affects. Joseph-Anthony: Green

 

 Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me t be wise, meek and gracious to all that cross my path just as Your beloved son was I request this valuable gift in the name of my mentor Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                       

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

See the Difference?

That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment Matthew 5:21-22 King James Version

LOOKING TO HEAVEN

 

I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sisterwill be subject to judgment. Matthew 5:22 New International Version.

This is why it is important to cross reference our Bibles.
In the King James where as it is missing in the New International Version.

Now concerning this passage

Just because we are Christians does not mean we do not have emotions like everybody else.

 

For anyone to try to manipulate you into feeling bad because you are angry with them for a just cause is destructive to you in your spiritual life, in your mental life and in your physical life.

Holding in anger is destructive and must be dealt with appropriately.  Sometimes that may means seeing a councilor.

If someone intentionally says or does something to anger you (it is noted that wives know the buttons to push to set off their husbands which I heard on a broadcast on Focus on the Family) then they need to get counseling because they have serious mental problems.

From my experience if they refuse to either stop it or get counseling then I stay as far away from them as I can get because they bring me nothing but grief.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer or deliverer) deliver me from the grips of unwarranted anger and from those who intentionally get their perverted pleasure in intentionally angering others. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who walked away from the scribes s when they tried to bait Him, Jesus Christ. Amen.

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