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

He Has Experienced Everything We Have.

                                                   

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human] in every respect as we are, yet without [committing any] sin. Hebrews 4:15 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever tried talking with someone about a problem they have not experienced and listened to their advice. As you walk away you realize that was a huge waste of time.

Is it not great to know we have a high priest that has gone through everything we have so He perfectly understand when we come unto Him with our problems.

I know for me, He is the main man to go to with all of my problems.

Sometimes He will just step back and allow me to solve them myself because He knows I am capable of it so why be lazy and depend upon Him to fix my problems when I can do it myself.

Sometimes He leads to to righteous guidance councilors (which may be just a casual conversation that Jehovah has arranged for you to meet with).

But the best time of course is when I sit down and talk with Him one on one. Sometimes He answers with questions to get at the root of the problem and sometimes He guides me to Bible verse and the Holy Spirit explains what they mean.

Then the Holy Spirit and I work together as a tag team to conquer the problem.

I am so grateful not only that Christ bore my sins on the cross but also that He suffered from everyday problems so He understands and talks with me as my most confident friend (which He is). Because Jesus walked amongst us, He has experienced everything we have and so much more. That is why we can come to Him with our cares, because he has been there, because He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer:  Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for blessing me that You are always there, that You always care and that You always bless me with the best advice and help to resolve all of my problems.

In Your wonderful name I give thank. Amen.

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

How can a Young Man Keep?

                                       

How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to Your precepts]. Psalm 119:9 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

He is the best life coach there is, His name is Jesus.

Do not forget that because He walked amongst us Jesus has gone through everything we have gone through and so much more. So, who better to go to when you are experiencing problems?

Now when Jesus is your best bud does it not sense that you would eagerly want to know everything there is about Him?

Just as you want to spend time with your earthly friends should you not so much more desire to spend time with your Heavenly bestest friend?

Pick a scheduled time every day to not just read the Bible but also to spend time talking with Him (not just about your problems either. Ask Him to reveal more of Himself to you so you will be blessed with loving Him greater and greater.).

Speaking from personal experience you will never be prepared for the awesome, majestic revelations He will share with you. When He does you will understand the phrase of Your heart dances with joy and your heart dances with love. You will yearn to spend more and more time with Him instead of wasting your time in the world which will lose all fleshly satisfaction unto you.

“If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.” — Johannes Tauler

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit El Deah (God of knowledge) for the precious gift of Your continuous knowledge of You, Jehovah and Jesus. It is always wonderful the beautiful attributes of youse that You share with me. I exalt You in the name of the best teacher Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

That is Not Friendship

                                                            

The man of too many friends [chosen indiscriminately] will be broken in pieces and come to ruin,
But there is a [true, loving] friend who [is reliable and] sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
The Holy Bible Amplified Version

You see it a lot with professional sports (particularly basketball) and in music. Many of these so called super stars are surrounded with cling ons. These are parasites that cling on to you and suck everything they can out of you (in this case it is money). They constantly flatter the suckers and tell them how great they are. When their career is over most are bankrupt and on welfare. They go to the cling ons for help but are laughed at and rejected. The cling ons just move to another filled with vanity.

This is even more true with in families.

“Let him not trust in vanity (emptiness, futility) and be led astray; For emptiness will be his reward [for such living]. Job 15:31 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

When someone is your friend only because they want something from you, that is not friendship, that is abuse. Joseph: Anthony- Green

On the other hand there is the wise who take their time, pray for Jehovah’s guidance and He directs them to others who are true friends. We are always there for each other. You need help around the house and they find out about it, you need not call them because they are a knockn on your door ready to help.

And the same applies to them. I do not wait for the call, I go right over with tools in hand.

You are having problems in your life, they see it and are always there (and discreet, they will not gossip about it with anyone because that is betrayal of the worse kind). Right back at them.

I love to go for walks with someone who is a true friend in the bush or by a quiet stream and we talk about our problems with each other.

And of course, every good Christian knows that Jesus is their bestest friend right?

Jesus is always there, Jesus always cares, Jesus always loves you. He is the best friend you will ever need. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for the supreme privilege of being a friend of Yours, Jesus’ and the Holy Spirit’s. It is my most revered blessing in life. I am grateful to You in the name of my bestest friend Jesus Christ. 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
