The Doctrines of Scripture Are.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The doctrines of Scripture are at once . . .the source of consolation, and the means of sanctification. It is in our worse agony that we experience the greatest consolation from our Heavenly Beloved. Sometimes He speaks to us in His loving word (the Bible) and sometimes He comes to us in spirit and comforts us personally. Either way we experience Divine comfort and encouragement.

To sanctify someone or something is to set that person or thing apart for the use intended by its designer according to the dictionary. We as Jehovahs children are set apart from the world in our thinking, living and actions. We are to be beautiful lights that glow from our Heavenly relationship with our Divine Designer, Jehovah, so that we are beacons guiding those stumbling in the dark world into the Celestial Light, Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture . . .come into the mind as knowledge, produce peace and love in the heart, spread the beauties of holiness over the character and conduct. These Holy doctrines are taught to us individually by the supreme teacher, The Holy Spirit. They are not taught as a system of religion but rather are taught as a manner in which the child of Jehovah become holy.

One of the fruitations of growing in knowledge and application of scripture in Heavenly peace and love as we emulate our best friend Jesus Christ.

The doctrines of Scripture are light; and like the rays of the sun, they sustain life at the root of the vine, and produce fruit on its branches.

Just as sunlight bring live giving vitality unto the vine so too does scripture enlarge spiritual life in the child of Jehovah. This life produces abundant harvests in the society it dwells in.

This heavenly light of truth gives . . . spiritual vitality to the soul, and holy conduct to the life. The truth will truly set us free from the lies in the world around us and fill us with vitality to share this light with others. This is first accomplished in the conduct of the saint.

The doctrines of Scripture are facts, which involve corresponding emotions and principles of action, and must, from their very nature, if believed, be operative upon the heart and the life.

Prayer: Thank you El-Deah God of knowledge for blessing me with Your abundant Divine knowledge in the proper manner in which to conduct myself according to Your wise principals.

Please bless me with the strength to consistently incorporate them into my daily life.

I gratefully thank You and humbly beseech You in the name of the wisest most obedient man to ever walk the earth 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

Wait For His Timing

God is already there.

That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;  strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. Colossians 1:10-12New King James Version

Patience is not my forte.

It is not necessarily that I want it know but rather that many times with Jehovah it has taken Him years where as I only want it to take weeks.

There are so many times I was frustrated and wanted to quit but prayed for the strength to continue on. Jehovah has always abundantly provided it for me.

There has been numerous times I have tried so hard only to fail in trying to perfect myself.

Like a patient Father Jehovah lifts me up and gently continues to guide me on my way

When I reflect back on my walk with Christ I must confess I was a bit arrogant and impatient in becoming one of His children. It is a lifetime process.

Even now after many decades I find myself impatient at times.

I can think of when Jehovah revealed to me when He wanted me to do something and I wanted to start right away. Thankfully I waited for His timing (I learned that the hard way) and it has happened a year from when He showed me the task He had prepared fro me to do.

“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them every day begin the task anew.” Francois de Sales

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (God is my maker) for being so patient with me in burning off the dross of my life while guiding me to the tasks You have predestined for me to accomplish for You with Your magnificent help. I laud You in the name of He who always did things You way in Your time Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

For You, Not Them.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 New International Version

Too many Bible thumpers search for Bible verses to throw in non believers faces or even at other Christians to condemn them or try to mold them into their way of thinking.

Instead the Bible is an instruction manual for the Christians life more so than the unbelievers.

 

That is why it is best to pray for the Lord to bless you to open your eyes and mind and heart to what He is saying to you before you read your daily Bible reading ( and just like you need to eat physical food every day so too do you need to eat spiritual)and how to put it into practice.

Make no mistake about it, it is important to know Bible verses and their meaning to defend yourself with gracefully and wisely when attacked.

I have used them very effectively numerous times.

Indeed I carry around with me a binder full of verses so that they can be used for reference. Some times instead of a quarrel it ends up being an opportunity to share Jesus with others.

As well, it is beneficial when challenged, to show them where it says that in the Bible.

You should see the look of shock on the agitators face when I pull out my binder full of Bible verses and Christian quotes.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (voice of God) for blessing me with speaking words of wisdom and life that is not only life giving to me but to those who hear Your divine word and are open to receiving its amazing grace giving life. I exalt You in the name of He whose very name gives me life Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                        

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