There is No Longer Any

FURNACE OF HELL

Dear friends, if we deliberately continue sinning after we have received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice that will cover these sins. There is only the terrible expectation of God’s judgment Hebrews 10: 26-27 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

Here it is, in black and white.

There are those that are either gullible or down right liars when they preach that when we accept Christ as our Savior we can live how ever we desire without any consequences. That is a big lie that only leads to Hell.

The thing to notice is these are deliberate sins which indicates that we know they are wrong yet continue to enjoy participating in them. It covers a whole range of issues such as gossiping, homosexuality, stealing, getting drunk (or stoned) and many other issues.

Now we all have weaknesses that are too strong for us to handle. That is why they must be laid at the feet of Christ.

BUT, once freed from them if you willingly go back to them you are no different than from those outside of Christs family. Once Christ frees us, only a fool returns to the Hell that He freed them from. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer : Thank you Jehovah Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) – Is. 49:26, 60:16 for paying a very high sacrifice to free me from my filthy sins.                                                                     Please send the Holy Spirit to convict me when I begin to stray because our loving relationship is the greatest treasure You have blessed me with and I do not want to destroy it by works of the flesh. In Your beautiful name I exalt You and beseech You. 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

You can Thank Him For

SING IT

 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Try this every day for a month and see how much your disposition changes:

Every morning thank Jehovah. You can thank Him for the bed you have slept on while many in the world sleep on cold dirt.

You can thank Him for the adobe you are living in while many are living in plastic tents you would be put in jail if you let your dog sleep in it.

Thank Him for the security of your adobe while many are living in war zones where their next moment may be their last or if they are captured they will be tortured and murdered.

You can thank Him for the heart in your adobe while many are shivering with nothing but a blanket to keep them warm.

You can thank Him for the air conditioning while many are in such sweltering heat they can barely breathe.

You can thank Him for the clean water to shower in, drink and cook your food with while many have enough water to cook and drink only.

You can thank Him for the food in your adobe while many are digging their meals out of the garbage dump.

I have seen all of these things and get angered when listening to the whine puppies cry about how hard done they are in the first world countries.

May I suggest going and living in third world countries for three months and then see how grateful you are to be living in the lap of luxury in the industrialized world.

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?'” — William A. Ward

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for all of Your wonderful daily provisions for me both great and small, for those I see and for those that are unknown to me. I praise You in the name of Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with the gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of joy. May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to share these gifts with others today.

Carries Us to the Sea Of

following chtists example

 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness Galatians 5:22 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We emulate the one we love and idolize.

As Christians that means we are to transform ourselves to behave as our best friend Jesus showed by His example while here on earth. We are to be led by the Holy Spirit where He has specific plans prepared for us. It is difficult at first (speaking from first hand knowledge) but becomes as natural as breathing the more we are obedient unto His direction. Now take this to heart and never forget it. Even though the ones we are gracious to may be ungrateful (which from experience they are) there are those who are watching that it will have a profound effect on.

One time when in China I used to give food instead of money to beggars (for which the vast majority was very angry for). After about a month I noticed many of the folks around that area were giving food to the beggars instead of nothing. This was a curious behavior because the beggars are usually ignored. Then the Lord brought enlightenment to me that they were emulating my actions. Wow.

And, remember this: “There is no small act of kindness that is not great in Heaven.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

“The stream of spontaneous acts of Godly kindness carries us to the sea of contentment and peace.” — Constance Hurst-Howard

One thing to remember as well as that there are certain area’s we are not to go to because they are unworthy and nothing good will come of our actions. Yes there were some area’s Jesus refused to preform any miracles in because of their unbelief so it would have been a waste of time. That is why it is imperative to depend upon the Holy Spirits guidance. He knows where to best invest your time, efforts and finances.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (The Lord blesses with Peace) for blessing me with joy in my heart and peace in my mind when I obey Your guidance to preform spontaneous acts of kindness to others. May it be a floodlight for others to see Your astounding love. I thank You in the name of He who preformed the most incredible acts of kindness during His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen

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

This Cannot Keep Going On.

 sunlight softly caressing pink flower

“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the Lord. For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of Sabbath rest, a Sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. Lev. 25:2-5 New International Version

Do you believe just because it is old it is worthless?

The Word of God is older than the hills. It is to be trusted and obeyed because it is the wisest.

Because they did not obey Gods commandment in the United States and give the land a rest, is it not a historical fact that that is what caused the “dust bowl” of the nineteen thirties?

Now concerning the farmland in the world, how many farmers give their crops a years rest?

Indeed, how much farmland in the world is owned by big companies like Monsanto? Do they care about obeying Gods word or about profit?

You see, it used to be that farmers rotated their crops. That meant that one year they would grow say vegetables and the next use it for cows to graze on. It allowed the ground to regain the nutrients it gave up to the vegetable the year before.

Now, because they do not give the land a rest it is growing weaker and weaker every year. This means they have to put stronger and stronger fertilizer on it. This means there are less and less nutrients in our food.

It is true that fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion: Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss

Eventually it is going to collapse.

When that happens, and it could happen any time now, there is going to be a world wide famine like never before in history.

When that happens, do not say:” God, how can you do this to us?”

It is not Gods fault, it is mans for refusing to obey Gods wise command.

What are you doing to take care of the land around you?

The natural world that God has made Must not be used at whim; We serve as stewards of His earth, Responsible to Him. —D. DeHaan

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) move people to more sustainable and organic farming and move their hearts to obey Your discerning Word. I ask this in the name of He who feeds us spiritually Jesus Christ. Amen.

May you be blessed with Gods divine love, peace and joy.
