I Certainly Don’t Recommend

GODS DELIGHTS

The troubles of my heart are multiplied; Bring me out of my distresses. Psalms 25:17 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

If you want to live an easy comfortable life do not become a Christian.

A Christians life can be expected to be one filled with sorrow, pain, hardship and loneliness.

You will be filled with sorrow at the ones who reject Christ (especially those in your maternal family) and by extension ostracize you. You will not be invited to family get togethers, weddings, funerals or anniversaries. It will cut deep.

You will suffer pain of never being invited to get togethers by those you work with. You will be treated like a freak and mocked.

You will suffer loneliness as Christ takes you away from comforts of this life into service for Him. You will feel as if you are the only person in the world because everyone around you rejects you mocks you and ostracizes you. It will cost you your family, your friends, your career, maybe your health, your financial security.

You will face hardship because of what you have to surrender unto Christ (in the beginning of your walk you will not be sure if He will supply your needs).

If this sounds like to heavy of a price to pay let us look at the rewards:

You can be sure that no matter the family and friends who reject you Christ will bring to you a Christian communion that will be closer than any maternal family member or worldly friend.

No matter recession or physical injury or anything that hampers you finances Christ will always make sure you have a comfortable place to live, clothes on your back and food in your belly.

In your hardship it will bring you ever closer to Christ which will expand your love, admiration, trust and friendship with Him, which is the best treasure of them all.

It is not: is it worth giving up everything to become a Christian but rather why in the world would I desire anything but Christ in my life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  “I didn’t go to religion to make me ‘happy.’ I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) for blessing me with Your Divine strength to endure and prosper (yes prosper because the prosperity is in the enlargement of our eternal love affair) during my suffering because of my association with You. I exalt You in the name of He gladly enduring the most horrible suffering for me Jesus Christ. Amen

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

We Must Prefer the Invisible Realities.

GOD GIVE A HOME

 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable. 2 Corinthians 4:18 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We must prefer the invisible realities of eternity,to the visible things of time; and amid all that is . . . dazzling to sense, gratifying to appetite,and dear to passion.

By faith, spend a life of . . . self-denial, mortification of sin, and separation from the world.

Yes, the world says, buy my razzle and dazzle and you will by happy. But it is like a junkie. Once the high of your new toy has worn off, you need to go out and foolishly spend your money on something else to get you your high of happiness. In the end, you end up with nothing but misery as you become deeply in debt and your toys break down or become obsolete.

For those of us in Christ however, He reigns in our heart which is not visible to the outside world. He promises us a world we have never seen nor can imagine. We trust Him when He promises a home in Heaven just for us even though we cannot even imagine what it will be like. And, best of all, He promises the ultimate high, that of just being with Him to which nothing else can compare with.

I look forward to the ultimate high that you never come down from, that of spending an eternity in the ultimate love affair with Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you El SIMCHAH GIYL (God my Exceeding Joy) for blessing me with the purest ecstasy of joy in a loving relationship with You. I praise You in the name of He whose presence makes my heart dance a wonderful gig of joy Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

I Use Both

complete deditacation

  “I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

I use both as a light unto my closest friend. His name is Jesus.

I use both the good times and the bad ones as a light unto Christ.

The hard times shine the light of how He held my hand through the darkest clouds of sorrow and the difficultest of times. How He gently heals me of both big and small wounds. How He is strong yet gentle. How His love and strength was what got me through them. We are not to whine about them but rather to rejoice in them for it shows His providential care.

I use the good times to show His marvelous generosity to those He loves. How even the littlest of blessing shows His magnitude of love for me. Folks need to hear both. It makes Him real to them and some eager to join His Holy family.

“We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand.” C.H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (voice of God) bless me with ample opportunities to give testimony of Your amazing blessings and how the best ones were how You walked through my many trials and tribulations with me . Allow me to speak of the wonderful loving blessings You have generously given me in my life time. I ask this in the name of the most beautiful blessing You have shared with me Jesus Christ. Amen.

The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving  Father. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today.

Reach Out to Them.

LET CHRIST'S LOVE SHINE

But the stranger who resides with you shall be to you like someone native born among you; and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 19:34 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

They are everywhere, especially in todays electronic society, lonely people.

We as Christians are to reach out to them. It is the perfect opportunity to share explaining to them the prospect of being blessed with a loving relationship with He who is the best friend one could ever have and a loving relationship of which no other can compare.

Before adventuring out for the day may I suggest you ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to someone who needs compassion.

Trust, me , when you sincerely ask of Him, He will guide you to just the right soul.

May I suggest you take a course in how to approach others and how to listen to them. As well, it is advisable to carry around a list of services available to help them if need be. So, say for example say someone is lonely, why not find out their interests and help them find a club to join, especially a Christian one.

“We need to care less about whether our children are academically gifted & more about whether they sit with the lonely kid in the cafeteria.” unknown

Now discretion is required because of dangerous places and folks. Do not approach a junkie when they are high or someone who is so angry looking they look like they are ready to explode.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to guide me to those with open lonely hearts unto Your most awesome love. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of He whose love for the lost took Him all the way to the cross 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

We Need to Be.

CHRISTIAN DEVOTION

 

 But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

In a courtroom a witness is someone who has seen or hear and event.

The greatest tool Jehovah has blessed us with to bring others unto Him is we ourselves. We are to be a witness for Him. Folks will listen much more aptly to your testimony of what Jesus has done in your life and through your life than when you shove a Bible in their face.

As well, when you emulate Christ in your life, you will stand out from the crowd. Curious souls will come and inquire why you are different. Then, you will be a witness for Christ.

Let the light of the Holy Spirit shine brightly in your spirit so as to be a beacon to a dark world. Many so called Christians try to convert unbelievers to their denomination more so than they do to explain who Christ is and why He is the only one to be worshipped.

As Christians we need not be Bible thumpers, we need to be Christs witnesses. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you for the wonderful honour of being intimate friends with me Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend). May I always emulate You, my best friend, so as to guide others to the most treasured of friend. In Your beautiful name I Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Did You Know That?

GOD IS WITH US

“Now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God” (Romans 5:11 New Living Testament).

Do you know that?

Do you know that when you accept Jesus Christ as your savior He instantly becomes your best friend?

Wow!

What an awesome thought huh?

Now just as with humans in order for there to be a friendship, we need to have the same interest and desire to share time together.

Do you enjoy spending time with your best friend?

Do you read His love letters to you, the Bible on a daily basis? For a deeper understanding of His love letters may I suggest  Our Daily Journal from RBC and Our Daily Bread by RBC.

Do you listen to His love songs for you, how much time do you spend listening to Christian music? May I suggest Praise 1065 and Joy Fm (St Louis or Florida).

I would like to suggest going to church, however, from a personal experience I find too many wolves amongst the sheep there (please read 2 Timothy 3:15 to see what I experience in church).

Do you listen to His message to you? I like going to seromonaudio.com and listening to Alistair Begg, Charles Spurgon Vance Havener and A.W. Tozer.

Now what makes people friends?

Could it be because they enjoy dong the same thing?

Well what did Jesus do when He was here?

Here is His guide to enjoy camaraderie with Him

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40 New International Version

Speaking from personal experience,  in Canada, I have found doing volunteer work extremely rewarding. Both, in personal satisfaction and the knowledge that is was making my best friend very happy.

So how is your relationship going with your best buddy?

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Raphael Simon

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for being my best friend and honoring my with such special moments as when we walk together and talk together. I gratefully give thanks in You loving name. Amen.

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

He is No Pushover.

USE DISCRECION

 I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love one another. John 13:34 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Here is where the liberal Christians get it all wrong. They spew out lies that Jesus loved everyone with no conditions but that is a lie.

Jesus did not behave too lovingly towards the buyers and sellers at the temple did He?

He did not sound too loving when He told the scribes and pharisees that they murdered the prophets and then built statutes to worship them did He?

He did not sound too loving when He called the scribes and pharisees snakes and scorpions did He?

Yes we are to love others as Jesus loved us and part of that is calling out filthy behavior, sometimes quite sternly, when required. We are not to tolerate filthy behavior in our churches nor in our private friendships and are to drive out the wicked, unrepentant ones form this community to protect the weaker members from being led astray by them. Yes we are to walk away from those who reject Christ and shake the dust of them from our feet.

Jesus is love but He is no pushover nor a marshmallow. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) always bless me to walk in righteousness so that I will not suffer Your terrifying punishment on the Day of Judgement and guide me to guide others away from their wicked ways and unto Your righteous ways. I meekly request this in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ. Amen.

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